How long does it take for hair to grow? Do you often ask this question? And it usually happens that right after you cut your hair, you want it to grow back! Well, this is the case with me. I don’t know about you.

On an average hair grows, 1/2 -1 inch in 30 days; so if you do the maths and calculate, your hair will take 4-5 months to grow a few inches but not all hairs grow at the same rate.

The rate of growth depends from one person to another. It depends on your health, the diet you eat and your genetics; that’s why some people have faster hair growth than others.

Hairs are dead cells and they are found in all animals and it helps in covering the body and in animals especially, it helps in protecting the body from the external environment.

Most of your hairs are dead except at the roots. So, if you want your hairs to grow at a faster rate, you need to take some extra time to make it work. Caring for your hair internally and externally is very important.

By internally, I mean you have to consume food that is rich in hair growth, mostly dark green vegetables and by external, it means that you have to take care of your hair by applying oil, especially during winters.

You don’t have to put so much hard work to make it grow faster, by doing lots of things which eventually makes you feel tired and bored and then automatically you give up!

There are a few rules that you have to follow. But don’t worry these are the simple and effortless rules. Let’s have a look.
