Default How long will it take to grow my hair to my waist?


The words on the picture are nothing we haven't heard before but if anyone wants to know, it says:
Take it from the top, and give your crowing glory and healthy head start with a regular scalp massage. Before you suds up, gently massage your scalp with small circular movements using the pads of your fingers - not your nails. This will relax muscles and rev up your circulation to make sure your hair gets all of the nutrients it needs.


The numbers of hairs on your head depend on hereditary factors. Blondes usually have the highest head count, with an average of 120,000 hairs. Brunettes come next with about 100,000 hairs per head, and redheads have the least with approximately 80,000.


Each hair has a life span of about 2 years: then it's pushed out to make way for a new hair to takes it's place. The means it's perfectly natural to count on losing 70 to 100 hairs a day.


Hair grows about half an inch a month (faster in the summer than the winter). This means that your hair grows as average six inches a year at the rate of about 1/60th of an inch a day. Unfortunately your genes govern the rate of growth, so there's nothing you can do to speed it up.

If your growing your hair the average length it'll reach is 18 to 24 inches. However if yours never seems to get past your shoulders it probably means that your hair has a slower growth rate, and a faster replacement cycle than those girls with super long hair.

Hair ends have been around the longest and therefore have been through more wear and tear than the rest of your hair. Treat your long locks to a mild shampoo. Also trimming won't make your hair grow faster, it will make hair look fuller, and get rid of uneven edges.

I am glad I found this chart. It will help me out. Right now I am at the one year mark. This is a nice way to chart progress. MAN! I can't believe I misplaced this all these years! It would've really come in handy like a year ago.

I have this chart!
(I didn't post it b/c I didn't know how )

It's excellent, but remember to measure your own hair/back from crown/scalp to the length that you want to achieve. I say this because waist length for me is 26-27" not the 24" in the chart as I am 5'9. For someone shorter, it may be less than 24"

Great post HR!

True but it is pretty accurate as far as measuring how long it will take, (6 inches a year).

This is the best information I have received on this forum so far...Now I know that It will take 18 months to two years for me to achieve my hair goal of 26 inches.

Thanks again HoneyRockette.
