Why You Should Never Use Retinoids in the Morning
And 11 other crazy (but true!) facts that prove timing really is everything in your health and beauty routines
Why: If you live in an area where weather conditions are relatively extreme in the winter and summer (hint: not Southern California), Balding says it's especially important to schedule routine trims at the start of each season. "Your hair gets drier during colder seasons, so a trim just before the winter will prevent split ends from doing worse damage." Likewise, a trim just before summer will get rid of split ends before the hair gets hit with damage from the sun and salt or chlorinated pool water, says Balding. This scheduling will also get you into the habit of getting regular trims for healthier hair year-round.
