How Fast Does Hair Grow and How You Can Make Sure You See It
Hair typically grows anywhere between 1/4 – 1/2 inch per month.
That’s approximately 3 – 6 inches of growth per year.
Unless you are suffering from a certain illness or on certain medications, you should expect this as your rate of growth, too!
Yep, that’s right your hair should grow 3 – 6 inches this year.
But only if you keep breakage and split ends at bay.
In other words, if you retain the length of your hair, you will see 3 – 6 inches of growth by the end of 2020.
A great way to chart your progress is do a length check around the 3 month period.
You should have 1/4 – 1/2 inch each month, a total of 3/4 – 1 1/2 inch every 3 months.
But if you’re not, here are some immediate things you can do:
- Start taking a multivitamin
- Trim your ends regularly
- Assess your hair care routine
Nutrients is the key to supporting your overall health and this is also true for your hair.
I know trimming or cutting your hair can seem counterproductive if the goal is growth or length retention, but the fact is damaged, split ends travel up the hair shaft and cause big issues like frizz and breakage.
A balanced hair care routine will moisturize, hydrate, and repair/prevent breakage of the hair. It improves and maintains the health of your hair resulting in healthier hair that grows 3-6 inches, annually.
