How Fast Does Hair Grow?

Did you know that the average person has over 100,000 hair follicles on their head. Typically, you lose around 50-100 hairs a day which is nothing to worry about when you think about how many hairs you have left! Usually, hair grows at a rate of 0.33mm per day or half an inch per month. However, factors such as hormones, genetics and diet can affect how quickly your hair grows.

Why Can't I Grow My Hair Longer?

If you feel like you can't grow your hair past a certain length, the shape of your hair follicles may be the reason for this. Round hair follicles hold onto the hair better, while flat hair follicles don't. So, if you have lots of flat hair follicles, this may be why it feels that your hair doesn't grow past a certain length.

Another reason why you may feel like your hair isn't growing any longer is because longer hair is heavier and more likely to break or fall out. Don't worry though because this is part of the hair's natural life cycle and another one will replace it!

What Causes Damage To My Hair?

Damaged hair is more likely to break, which makes it more difficult to grow your hair. Using heated styling appliances often can damage your hair. Where possible, you should try to avoid using heated styling tools such as curlers, straighteners and blow dryers. If you absolutely have to use heated styling tools, then always make sure to use a heat protectant.

Chlorine can damage your hair, so make sure to limit the amount of hair that goes in the swimming pool by tying it up and away on the top of your head. You can also coat your hair in conditioner to provide a protective layer against the chlorine. When washing your hair, avoid shampoo containing silicone as this can make your hair prone to breakage.
