On average, hair grows about a ½ inch every month. Some have also noticed their hair growing at a rate of ¼ inches monthly. Growth rates differ from male to female, age, health, hair care practices, and so on. For instance, you want shoulder length hair when stretched (about 12 inches), that will take about 2 years to grow (Give or take depending on a variety of factors).


Hair Tip #2 Do you trim your hair when needed or on “schedule”? You do not have to ritualistically cut your hair, most times frequent trims aren’t needed!
