A lot of people complain that their hair has stopped growing or they have given up on their hair since it seems to always be the same length.
Certain people compare their hair growth with others and come to the conclusion that some people’s hair just grows faster as opposed to theirs.
In actual sense, hair typically grows anywhere between 1/4 – 1/2 inch per month and this equates to approximately 3 – 6 inches of growth per year for everyone.
The problem you have is not the fact that your hair isn’t growing but rather, you aren’t retaining your hair. Yes, hair growth and hair retention are really different.
If your hair grows at a rate of 1/2 inch per month, but 1/2 inch of the ends of your hair breaks off within the month, it would seem as though your hair didn’t grow at all. If your hair breaks off as fast as it grows in, it would seem that there is no progress. Get it? If your hair breaks off faster than it grows in, that’s even worse. In both cases, you need to make immediate changes to your hair care regimen in order to see the progress of your hair’s growth.
A lot of people these days are hung up on their hair growth so much they take pills and do all sorts of things to their hair just to make it grow longer, but give up after 2 or 3 tries since “they don’t work”.
Sis, if you don’t retain your length, your hair will remain the same length as they’ll keep breaking off!
