On average hair researchers have discovered that hair grows about half a millimeter per day. This means over the course of one year strands can grow a total of 6 inches or half a foot. Nevertheless, other factors do affect hair growth including but not limited to: genetics, age, pregnancy and hormones. Knowing the average will help keep hair growth in the right perspective without it becoming a discouraging process. Hair is continuously growing and with proper haircare techniques your strands will keep growing in the direction you want them to… down south.
