View Full Version : Normal hair growth?

June 18th, 2008, 12:00 PM
I just realized that from 6 th May until today my hair has grown 4 cm
That is 1.6 inches if I am right. :cheese:
Which is a whole lot! I am sure the measurings were right both times, because I repeated them.. and had my mom and sister measure them too.
really, how much does your hair grow?

I had a lot of shed lately and was worried (you can't see it because I have thick hair, but I noticed when combing and found more hair in the shower) but now I'm in disbelief!!

If your measurements are correct, then that is 3 times the normal growth rate! I'm officially jealous!

That is a lot. But excellent! I average .75 to 1 inch in the summer months. Winter slows down some.

Way to go!

My hair grows about .8in a month. Sometimes less, often more.

Your rate is spectacular! Congrats!!

Yes, I'm sure about measurements. I'm not sure about the conversion ;)
My hair has always grown very fast, but only about 2 cm per month.
I wonder what happened, so I can replicate it :eyebrows:

Your conversion's right :) And that's spectacular growth!

Amazing growth. Congratulations. I recently enjoyed a growth spurt myself. Unfortunately I didn't measure after my rather large trim (lots of splits) of 2-4 inches because I didn't want to be depressed about how many months of growth I had lost. I wish I had measured because I had that length back in approximately 6 weeks.

That really is some nice growth..

I personally dont like to measure...i like to take pictures better. But this is like making a diet...you can always get obcessed! I dont want that...although its dificult to stop thinking about my hair sometimes eheh I just didnt know that hair grew a bit more at summer...that is great!! Since i would be very very happy to add about 3 inches until the end of it :D

Wow, that is some awesome hair growth; I'm very jealous! Mine grows 0.5 inch per month if I'm lucky. I'm hoping the Monistat will work. Do you take any vitamins/use any treatments/etc. that helps it grow faster or is that just how much it grows naturally?

Now that I think of it, I've taken vitam supplements because of exams. I don't eat much fruit, have gone off the pill and have had a very heavy period, so I started taking Supradyn, one tablet a day. I decided to take it for one month.
My skin looks better (less zits) and maybe that's the reson for my growth!!

How lovely! Just over an inch a month is very impressive indeed! Let's hope it continues!

June 19th, 2008, 02:09 AM
Wow I'm so jealous! I don't actually know my growth rate yet but I doubt that it's that much! Congrats!

June 19th, 2008, 08:13 AM
Thanks, everyone! I'll continue with the vitamins until the end of July because of exams, and let you know if growth seems related to those!

June 19th, 2008, 08:18 AM
Mine grew about an inch as well before that it was maybe 1/4 inch if I was lucky :lol: Thats some rocking growth. How I adore thee summer months :D

I think I need to log it better to really verify it, but I'm pretty sure I get around 1/2 inch per month. It annoys me though because I'm so sure my mom gets about 1 1/2 each month.. I sure wish I'd gotten THOSE genes!

My hair grew 7/8 of an inch between May 1st and June 1st. My normal growth rate is 3/4 of an inch.

Your growth rate in a 6 week period is spectacular! I hope it continues for you. :flowers:
