The Facts about Women’s Hair Growth

Women come to hairstylists all the time asking the same tough questions. They wonder what is natural hair growth for women.

Well, it is actually quite an easy answer. Women grow 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch of hair per month on average. That might not be great news for women who just got a very short hair cut and are regretting it.

However, women could be sabotaging their hair growth. They might be using heat styling, which can cause breakage. If they must use these products, then they should always use a heat protecting product to minimize the damage. Spray on the product and let dry before using the heat tool.

Natural hair growth for women means not always running to the salon. If hair only grows 1/2 inch a month, then getting 1 inch cut off every month counteracts the entire process. Try to space the visits to a cut every two to three months, and ask the hairstylist to only cut off the split ends.
