Our hair is always growing even though we tend not to notice. Just think of how often you have to shave your legs, underarms or how quickly men shave their faces. The average rate of hair growth is ¼ to ½ of an inch per month.
It’s important to point out the example of rain forests and how they exist. The conditions that cause rain forests to flourish are the same essentials for healthy hair growth.
Because of the very warm and humid climate of the rain forest it encourages the vegetation to flourish and promotes rapid growth of the trees and plants. Very similar conditions also are good for promoting healthy hair growth. Hair that lacks moisture will become dry, brittle and easily breaks off therefore you would be losing hair at faster rate than it would be be growing.
Hair growth is a steady but gradual process, there really is no “quick” way to grow hair. Some individuals experience a slightly faster rate of hair growth than average. But it’s best to be realistic and measure your own hair growth by the general rule and not the exception. With that in mind, in a year’s time if you have healthy hair habits you should be able to grow about 6 inches of new hair.
