We all from time to time wonder if we are normal, from the size of your hotdog to the rate your hair grows we want to be extra. It’s a sign of the times, we want our life to be extra, our Instagram posts to be over the top, our wardrobe to be envious and our holidays to die for!
Well guess what, your hair grows on average 1.25cm per month or slightly under 1/2cm per week. Now give or take a few millimetres that’s it for every human on the planet. If it’s short you will notice it grow faster because you have a point of reference eg; ( hits your ears or shirt collar).
Now some even believe the more you cut it the faster it grows, not true in fact the thought behind that is that if you don’t cut it, split ends occur and hair splits off and length ultimately reduces so it doesn’t grow faster because of cutting it simply doesn’t snap off and reduce.
You should trim your hair so it’s healthy every 6-8 weeks regardless of the length to keep it healthy.
