Beauty Tip of the Day:
How quick does Hair grow?
The speed of hair growth is roughly .5 inches per month, or 6 inches per year. With age the speed of hairgrowth might slow down to as little as .1 inch a month.
Cell division is responsible for the hair growth cycle. The new cells push the hair forward to make it longer, so the new hair is added at the root. There are about 100,000 hairs on a healthy scalp of hair. Each of these hairs will, in normal healthy conditions, last for up to six years. People loose about 100 hairs per day, in normal conditions. The fallen hairs are replaced by new hair. Baldness occurs when new hairs are not being produced anymore.
