How fast does hair grow?
Many wonder about how quickly hair can grow. Scientists estimate that the average head of hair grows at a rate of about half an inch per month. Additionally, hair grows 10% faster during the summer months, although this difference isn't particularly noticeable.
Meanwhile, some complain that their hair grows too slowly, while others boast that they need a haircut every two weeks. So what is the true answer to how fast hair can grow? Although personal genetics play a huge role in how quickly your hair grows, there are several other factors in play that can influence your rate of growth.
The most important factors determining the speed of your hair growth include:
- General health
- Environmental factors such as pollution
- External influences like shampoos and conditioners
- Time of year - roughly 10% faster during the summer.
.It’s also important to remember that everyone is unique. Therefore, perhaps perplexingly, all people will react very differently to the exact same influences listed above, making this question quite complex to answer.
Hair is an important part of our identities and if we are not able to maintain it properly, it can be quite distressing. By acknowledging a baseline growth rate, you'll be better equipped to make informed decisions about potential hair growth treatments - such as those we offer at RESTORE.
