Wanting to grow hair faster and the actual speed of your hair growth are two completely different things. Usually, your hair grows a quarter or maybe half an inch(max) in a month. Now this is a painstakingly slow process, if you just had a haircut and want to grow beautiful long hair. However, there are some easy and effective ways to turn things around.
But before sharing tips on how to grow hair faster, let’s look at how the hair growth cycle works.
Understanding hair growth cycle
Everyone’s hair goes through the same natural growth cycle. Contrary to the popular opinion that our hair grows together as one unit, there are some strands that rest when others grow. These are the three stages of hair growth that will help you understand how to grow your hair long:
• Growth phase - This active phase of hair growth lasts for 2-8 years.
• Transition phase - Your hair stops growing in this stage that lasts for 4-6 weeks.
• Resting phase - Your hair starts falling out during this period. It lasts for 2-3 months.
In the growth phase, you have over 90-95% hair follicles on your scalp. And about 5-10% follicles in the resting phase, which results in nearly 100-150 hair strands falling every day. This *hair fall is normal. Now, this growth phase might make you wonder, how long does it take for hair to grow? Well, we have answers.
