Is that possible? I just measured my hair, and it's 35". 2 inches more than it was about a month ago. I did start taking 5000mcg of Biotin daily around that time.

I'm not sure if I actually got 2 inches of growth from it, or if I measured wrong a month ago. Anyone ever had growth this fast before?

i heard it takes likes 2 months for biotin to kick in. But...good for you, it must be working. 2 inches in a month would be freaking awesome!

2 inches?! I though the max was around 1/2 an inch . . . Well, if it looks 2 inches longer, then it must be, but that seems slightly over the top. Do you have any "body landmarks" you measured against, e.g. shoulder, bra strap, small of your back?

If that's true, WOW!

That sounds amazing! It's never happened to me before but I wouldn't it's impossible, just unlikely. Maybe you did measure wrong? But if not, yay!

2 inches in a month is not impossible, if my memory serves me right the woman with the longest hair in the world had a growth rate along those lines. Lots of members here mention getting 1 inch a month, and my sisters hair grows that fast usually.
For me, 2 inches a month would be an absolute dream!

I think its totally possile especially if you were a quick grower in the first place! Congratulations! And I'd like to clone some of your genes please! LOL

It's not impossible, but it could be a measuring error. The position of your head as well as how straight you manage to place the tape behind your back can add or take an inch easily. Hopefully you'll have a pleasant surprise like that next month too. :)

And when you grow (pun intended) weary of that much growth, you can just send some of that wonderfullness my slow slow growing way....

yay for you! I think it's possible but don't get down if that kind of growth rate doesn't continue. I have been getting 1 inch per month using my supplements, which includes taking 600mcg of biotin. Your hair looks fantastic... keep on growin!

It might be a measuring error. Take measurements for the next couple of months, too, and do an average. But, 2 inches a month can happen!

1/2" per month is average, not max.

I agree with PP who say you might just have had a surge and that this rate might not continue, so don't be disappointed if you stall in the future. But until then, WOW! Great month!

My hair did that after I first started deep conditioning with coconut oil. I had stalled for ages. I don't know if it was the moisture that made my hair stretch or what? But I'll never be without coconut oil again.

Yeah, I get about that much in the summer. Slows down a lot in the winter, but it's definitely possible. Particularly at our age.

I get about 1" a month generally, and with biotin + MSM about 1.5" so I think it's possible :)

Despite the average rate of hair growth being 1/2 inch per month some people do seem to go through spurts of growth.
If this is happening to you at the moment - long may it last!
