Thread: Does hair on your head all grow at the same rate? (Bad haircut..)

  1. #1

    Default Does hair on your head all grow at the same rate? (Bad haircut..)

    Not long ago I got my hair cut about 3 inches and had long layers added to it. It was a day or two after going to the hair salon that I noticed my layers on the right side of my face are longer than the other side! It's not completely obvious so I don't want to waste any money getting it cut again, so I was thinking I'd cut it a bit myself. But because I don't trust myself with that either, if hair does not grow at the same rate, I will be fine leaving it alone to grow out itself. Am I explaining myself well..? I'm sorry if this is a bit dragged out!

    Thank you!

    I'd go back to the salon because you paid them to give you a proper haircut and instead they made it lopsided. Not acceptable in my book.

    But to answer your question, yes hair does grow at different rates. The difference is all over your head though. Most people don't have a difference between left and right and even if you do, maybe your longer side grows faster and the haircut will get more lopsided over time.

    Yes hair definitely does grow at different rates across your head. But it's not hugely noticeable.

    Some of the time it actually comes down to breakage anyway, there's usually one side of your head which takes more of a beating than the other!

    Yep, it all grows at different rates. You shed hair, and get new hairs growing, even while the rest of your hair is long, don't you?

    It does actually. I had the same problem 2 months back but now that its at my shoulders it isn't all that obvious anymore.

    Yes, it grows at different rates. BUT that cannot produce a visible effect in "a day or two".

    You've had a bad haircut. Go back to the salon, explain why you're unhappy with it, and hopefully they should remedy it.

    It grows at different rates. I'd go back to the salon and get my hair redone.

    I'd go back and in fact that's exactly what I did when I had the same problem in December last year. There was no way I could leave it, there was a difference of about 2" between the sides!

    Hair all round generally grows at the same rate. So that longish bit now will be longish in the future.
