How long does hair take to grow?

Hair growth is a common concern for many people. We all desire to have a strong, healthy and abundant mane, but sometimes it’s difficult to achieve this. The pace of our modern lifestyle and the products, styling tools and treatments we use each day can alter the growth cycle and accelerate the hair’s aging. So, knowing all of this, we ask ourselves, how long does hair take to grow? 

 

Why doesn’t my hair grow? 

 

The circadian rhythm is a natural cycle that regulates our body’s physiological processes, including hair growth. This 24-hour cycle affects our cells and continuous interruptions of it are reflected in our skin, muscles, brain... and also in our hair. 

Furthermore, both external and internal alterations also damage and impact our fibers’ health and hair growth. Pollution and environmental factors, exposure to blue light, the use of aggressive products and treatments or the abuse of heat tools, like the blow dryer and iron.  

Likewise, our production of hormones decreases as we age. Hair growth slows down and our mane loses density and strength. Furthermore, stress can provoke a hormonal imbalance in our body and, when we don’t sleep enough, the production of melatonin (a hormone that helps to regulate our hair growth) can also be interrupted. Our lifestyle, an unhealthy diet or the deficiency of essential nutrients–like iron, vitamin D, zinc and biotin–are other decisive factors. 

 

How long does hair take to grow? 

 

Hair growth varies, depending on each person. On average, our hair grows approximately 1.25 cm per month. The growth phase lasts between 2 and 7 years and, once it reaches the final stage, it falls out to leave room for the formation of new hair strands. 

A daily loss of between 50 and 150 hair strands is considered normal. However, there are factors that can affect the speed of our hair growth and accelerate shedding. The health and size of the hair follicle are key to preventing the hair’s debilitation and loss and, thus, for stimulating its growth. 

 

Obtain a healthy mane 

 

It’s important to take steps for repairing damage, recovering the hair’s lost vitality and strength, improving the follicles’ anchorage and achieving a redensification of the mane through a healthy, ongoing growth: 

  • REGULATE. Prevent alterations to the hair’s biological clock caused by external and internal damage. A correct functioning of the follicle is key for the hair growth cycle. 
  • ANCHOR. Guarantee optimal follicle size and health by decreasing and preventing the hair’s thinning and loss. 
  • PRESERVE. Increase the vitality of the follicles’ stem cells, maintaining and protecting their functions.  
  • PROTECT. Potentiate the elimination of free radicals, increasing antioxidant, photoprotective and antipollution properties... 
  • NOURISH. Provide cells with necessary vitamins, minerals and nutrients to guarantee optimal hair growth. Improving blood circulation is also required for a better flow of oxygen and nutrients directly to the follicle.
