    Yeah, I guess. I suppose in this situation outliers might be pretty far to both sides. Still, I'm happy to see that someone had a vote higher than mine. It makes me feel like less of a freak. :P

    I'm actually a bit shocked that no one has voted for the smallest amount.

    ETA- Now that I think of it bald men can't grow hair at all. So that .5 average is accurate bald men would have to be taken into account as well.

    For me it varies really dramatically by season, but I doubt it averages out to more than .5"/month--probably less. I've not actually been concerned with growing my hair out for many years, though, so this is just guesswork based on how much my roots (which are very hard to see anyway) have shown in between henna-ings.

    My hair has always grown pretty fast I had it down as 1 inch a month, but since November it has definitely been more. I've definitely noticed the last couple of inches appearing out of nowhere but I don't really do anything to encourage it (other than my supplements, which aren't specific for hair, and drinking a lot of coffee).

    Jane, I was pleased to see yours was so high on another thread! Made me feel less freaky too haha.

    I've only been keeping track for a few months but I'm clocking in at about about an inch a month. If it's just a temporary spurt I hope it lasts a while longer. I have about six inches until I reach my goal.

    I haven't been tracking long enough to know for sure (It's been about two months and I wanna measure for at least six before I declare an official growth rate) but I'll say that after my last haircut on December 20th I measured at about 16.5 inches and now about three weeks later I'm at 17 inches. So, maybe a little faster than average? Or I'm off on my measurements.

    I measured from root to tip, with a sample from the top of my head, since I am growing out a buzz cut.
    Measured in with most strands longer than 4.75'' and the longest ones maxing out at 5''. Measured the LHC way, (hairline to hemline) I'm at ~13''.
    I did my last buzz cut in May 2019. My hair was no longer than .5'', probably more something between .25'' and .5''.
    So my hair grew about 4.5'' in 8 months, slightly above ""average"" at an estimated .5625'' a month.

    I voted I don't know because I don't measure it religiously. But it must be average because I can expect a solid 6" a year.

    I'll have to wait a few more months to find out, as I recently had a month of 0.3 cm followed by 3.1 cm. :) I'd like to keep track for at least a year.
