I also spoke to Amanda Munoz — a professional hair stylist who has been doing hair for the last eight years (including mine) — about how to keep your hair healthy in order for it to grow.
“I think there are a couple of common mistakes we make,” Amanda told BuzzFeed. “One is using too high of a heat setting on our hot tools. Another is not getting consistent trims, which should be roughly every four to eight weeks. And if we’re talking color, constantly overlapping new color on top of previously colored or chemically serviced hair can definitely cause unwanted damage that over time will start to cause breakage.”
