The question about how fast hair and nails grow is mainly asked by women, because it is primarily they who wear long hair and grow long nails. Certainly, a lot depends on innate predispositions, genes etc. but the proper diet is not without significance when it comes to the health and condition of our hair, skin and nails. Caring for those features from the outside is equally important.
The answer is simple: this varies. However, you can approximate the growth rate of the hair. It is roughly a centimetre a month. This is a basic average, because of course, there will be people who will be able to grow two centimetres, and there are those who are only capable of growing a couple of millimetres.
How quickly hair grows also truly depends on many factors, including genetic factors. The diet rich in macro and microelements and irrigation of the body is certainly very important. It is equally important to avoid the use of dyes and heat treatments that can affect the structure of the hair. For example, too much exposure to straighteners will cause great defect to your hair, and improper dyeing can cause premature death and even hair loss.
This one is difficult – the main question is, can hair growth be accelerated at all? It turns out that yes, it can, although it should be emphasised that not every treatment works. Within drugstores and pharmacies, you can and you should be able to purchase various types of products that are supposed to accelerate hair growth. These are primarily balms, masks, oils and ampoules that should be applied directly to the scalp. Their task is to stimulate the follicles and improve the blood supply to the scalp and oxygenation of the hair roots.
If they are neat and shiny, long hair can look very impressive. Few however realise that the longer the hair is, the more demanding it will be to sustain them and the slower it will grow. Self growth can be very problematic, it lasts so long that many people give up during the process and return to the previous, shorter length.
It may take up to several years to grow hair of the desired length. The important thing isn’t necessarily how quickly hair grows, but also in what condition the hair ends/tips are. Because so what if we achieve an impressive length and growth, if the ends of the hair are damaged. Then the long hair won’t look as nice, and will be prone to falling out. Growth can also be barely visible if our hair is damaged, because the ends simply crumble. That is why caring for all hair strands and assuring regular cutting of the hair tips is extremely vital during the process of hair growth. And as a side note – It’s not true that hair grows faster if cut. They grow at the same rate as non-cut hair, it’s the genetics and health of the hair and the entire body which determines the growth rates.
