Hi guys! I wanted to do a quick post on my hair today. I don't know about you but I know a lot of people (including myself) at one time or another has googled something like "How fast does hair grow?" or "How long will it take for my hair to grow long?" and I thought that I'd show you my experience.
It has been two years to the day since I took the plunge and chopped all my hair off into a really short style. Not quite pixie cut, but the shortest part of my hair wasn't even a centimetre in length. I thought it's as good a time as any that I showed you how fast my hair has grown - and how fast yours could grow, too.
So here I am before my hair appointment. I went to Toni and Guy for the restyle from this...
And two years later...with three haircuts in between (all taking about one inch off) I've finally reached a point where I can say I have long hair again. This picture was taken today.
I can safely say that I'm never going to cut my hair off again. I really needed to do it and really wanted to at the time because I was getting sick of the same old straight style. However I like to wear my hair up a lot and the inconvenience of having to wash my hair daily to get it to look good in the short style was just too much for me to enjoy.
So as you can see from the picture of the haircut, my shortest lengths were at the sides, just above my ear.
As I mentioned, the shortest length of my hair was not even a centimetre, and now it measures just over 30 centimetres. If we take into account the three hair cuts I got in the last two years, taking a couple of centimetres off per cut, the average length of hair growth per year is around 16 to18cm! Making it nearly 1.5cms of growth per month. How good is that?!
Here are some more pictures of my hair today, two years on.
Here you can see how long the sides of my hair have managed to grow in this amount of time.
I hope this was helpful to you if you're wondering how long it will take to grow out your short hairstyle. I'm really quite amazed at how little time it actually took to get from a short style to over shoulder length. I wish you all good luck if you're trying to grow your hair out, like me! I know how tedious it can be, especially at the beginning where you have to go through that awkward stage of nothing looking nice. Keep at it, you can get through it! Haha!
I'm wondering if this is the average speed of hair growth for everyone. Have you ever grown your hair out from short? Leave a comment down below telling me how long it took for yours to grow out!
Lots of love,
