Coarse and Thick Hair
"Regularly take out extra weight by getting a trim every four to six weeks to keep hair from getting bulky. This, along with frizziness, alters the shape of your cut. Keep frizz at bay by styling with a smoothing serum."

Medium Texture and Thick Hair
"This is the best texture for holding the cut's shape, so you need to get it trimmed only every six to eight weeks. If you want a bit more control when you're styling, try a finishing salve; it'll give you more structure and hold."

Fine and Thin Hair
"You need to trim often (every four to six weeks), not only because you're prone to split ends but also to keep a strong line. You'll lose that line faster with fine, thin hair. For added volume, spritz in a root-boosting product before you blow-dry."
