Getting a haircut regularly
In most cases, you may find that your hair seems to grow faster after you have it cut. So you may wonder that if getting a haircut is the simplest way of solving the problem. Actually, cutting your hair has nothing to do with making hair growing faster. Generally speaking, hair can be regarded as being dead essentially once it grows out of the scalp, so that whatever you do to the ends of the hair can not physically speed up the rate at which your hair grows out of your head. When at a certain length, the hair ends will be in a bifurcate situation in which it will break easily. With time going on, there will be increasingly split ends if you leave it alone and then and it will speed up the breakage of your hair. The longer you allow your split ends to hang out, the more your hair breaks off from the bottom, causing it to actually get shorter. With the aid of haircut, you will remove most split ends away, keeping the growth of the hair to be normal.
Taking good care of your hair
Like many other girls, you may do hate hair split ends that you are used to chasing it and removing it away with my fingers. Who’s more, you do not feel like having your hair cut frequently. So what can you do to solve the problem of split ends? Under this situation, it is indispensable for you to take good care of your hair in order to keep your hair away from bifurcating. Believe it or not, it is a truth that you can hardly repair split ends once it happens. However, applying high quality hair products to your hair to do regular conditioning treatments can work well in preventing split ends by keeping the moisture balance. The longer your hair is, the easier your hair ends tends to lose moisture balance to bifurcate.
Your Hair length is decided by your DNA
There is one thing called the biology of hair which determine your hair’s length potential. Despite the fact that you are getting a haircut at a regular speed, as well as taking good care of your hair with the right and high quality products, it is also common that there is a stop growing in your hair. Under this situation, you may have reached your hair’s length potential.
There is something called hair’s (all hair, including your nose hair） growth cycle, among which there are three growth stages, including anagen,telogen and catagen. As for the growth time spent in each stage, it is all pre-programmed by your DNA. Every hair has its own specific length of growth time.
In general, hair can actively grow for an average of 2-6 years. Of course, it varies from person to person. If you have a hair growth cycle of 2 years, but others’ are of 6 years, it is obvious that you just can reach the length potential of shoulder length while others’ hair can reach her waist.
In addition, because of the complication of human’s biological characteristics, some people’s active growth cycle can last less than 2 years while others can be much longer than 6 years. On average, there is an increasing length of 6-inches per year for each hair, meaning that you can only expect your hair to be a maximum length of 12 inches if your active growth cycle is only a couple of years.
