Both are bit science heavy but probably information here is more accurate than blogs and websites.

some tidbits

average hair growth is 5.5 inches/14 cm a year

hair grows upto 36 inches--not sure if that is the length of the strand which is quite a bit--it should encourage everyone here

hair on different parts of head grows at slightly different rates

There is also stuff on conditioners, silicones etc


not all pages are free--for me this is like reading Grisham--I miss those pages but have fun otherwise

Well, that certainly was interesting, what I could read anyway. I wish I was confident enough to make my own conditioner...
