How fast does hair really grow?

All of your hair follicles are there from birth. You have over 100,000 follicles in your head alone. Baldness and hair thinning

are caused by some hair-producing follicles ceasing to produce hair as you age. Every hair on your scalp has a growth cycle that

may last anywhere from two to six years. Your age, hair type, general health, and specific medical disorders are some of the

elements that affect how quickly your hair grows. The evidence for the claim that hair grows more quickly in the summer and

sheds more in the winter is, at best, anecdotal. Regardless of the season, any unexpected hair loss should be discussed with a

physician. The cycle your hair is in is probably the reason if it appears that your hair is growing more slowly as it becomes longer.
