Ever wondered how fast your hair grows?

On average its 10-15ml per month, so 12 -16cm per year.

Have you been trying to grow your hair like forever and feel like its just not getting there?

If you’re not having regular trims, (6-10 weeks depending on the health of your hair), your ends could be fraying faster than the roots can grow, giving you that feeling that it just not growing.

So darn frustrating!

If you have roots from your last colour, that’s the proof your hair is in fact growing, yay, except that also means you have regrowth, not so yay…

The best way to get your hair as long as it can grow, is to have regular trims, but only cut off half what has grown. So if your hair has grown 20ml in 6 weeks, simply take of 10ml, easy!

Eventually your hair will get as long as it will grow.

One thing to keep in mind is not everyone can be a Rapunzel, as your hair will stop growing usually somewhere between 4 and 7 years. There is what I call a growth memory that is individual to us. A bit like some people get amazing long eyelashes and some people short ones.

If you get to that point where you find it simply won’t grow anymore, you have a couple of options.

Firstly, hair extensions. They have come such a long way over time and they are great for giving you more hair for thickness or longer hair for length. They are time and money consuming but if you really want that length and cant make it happen for yourself, this is a quick fix option.

Secondly clip in extensions. These can be a great option that costs less and has much less commitment in terms of looking after it.

Lastly and my personal favorite, rock the hair you have.
