Thank you. That really helps.

Is there one with maybe lines drawn on a single person (or outline)?

How fast does hair grow?

Thanks again.

Look in that thread I gave you there is 2 pictures in there with lines on the body. Everybodys hair is different but i'll say maybe 1/2 an inch a month slower or more depends on the person.

Hair growth rates depend on the person and their genetics, as well as whether they're in a stall - where the hair slows or stops growing for a temporary period - or a spurt - where the hair grows noticeably faster than normal. Also, if there is damage to the hair the growth may not be noticeable as the hair will break as fast as it grows.

The typical rate on average for most people is around half an inch a month of growth.

Thank you all.

Now my boyfriend and I can make a guess at the length I might get my hair to before our wedding.

Growing time.
