How long will it take for my hair to grow 3 inches?

Postby kentrell » Mon Nov 18, 2013 1:01 pm

I'm an african american guy 19 years old I stay in shape I play football. I heard that health has a lot to do with having healthy hair and hair growth.

I shaved my head to support the fight against cancer, and don't get me wrong I'm glad I did something for a good cause but it'd just so weird walking past the mirror and seeing something I've never seen. I've allways had long hair, if ut was either an afro, braids or dreads, which I recent had. But the moral of all this rambling is how long wll it take for me to grow my hair 3 inches so I can start twisting my hair again.

Hair on average grows half an inch per month. So for it to grow three inches, it'll take up to six months.
But don't worry, you can fasten your hair growth with vitamin E supplements, cod liver oil. And when it grows an inch or two:
"Choose products that contain ingredients that are healthy for hair. Ingredients like avocado, coconut, jojoba, and olive are all beneficial when used in moderation. They help retain moisture and oils while minimizing split ends and other hair damage."

The average rate of hair growth is 1/2 an inch a month (6 inches a year), so 6 months to grow 3 inches. Go to your local supermarket or whatever and go to the shampoo section. There you can a find a small (or big) section for black hair care products. You can find stuff there.

The rate or speed of hair growth is about 1.25 centimeters or 0.5 inches per month, or about 15 centimeters or 6 inches per year.
