How Long Does It Take for Your Hair To Grow?

Everyone wants their hair to look the best it can, and we understand that at The Earthling Co. When your hair starts to thin or just isn’t quite as voluminous as it used to be, it’s normal to be concerned. However, this might not be permanent. It could be due to the way you style your hair, your hair treatment protocol and the types of ingredients used in your hair care products.

If you shop mindfully for quality products like our shampoo bar and conditioner bar, which use premier, natural ingredients, then your hair might reacquire that volume that you’re used to. Let’s get into hair specifics — hair’s life cycle, its different types, etc. — and what types of products can help it look fabulous.

How Fast Should Healthy Hair Grow?

How long can your hair grow? That depends on two things: the rate of growth and the amount of time the hair stays on your head. These two factors vary greatly. Some depend on things you can’t change, such as your genetic background. Other factors you do have a great deal of control over.

There is not much you can do regarding the rate of growth, which is usually between 4 and 6 inches a year. However, a lot of environmental, personal and lifestyle choices influence how quickly the hair falls out.

Depending on your hair type, the growth phase of normal, healthy hair can last anywhere from three to ten years. This means that your hair might continue to grow for up to a decade in certain situations. That’s why it’s so important to maintain healthy hair treatment practices to ensure your flowing mane remains strong and smooth.

The growth phase can be affected by all sorts of factors: diet, hormones, environmental changes, stress factors, a new job and age. It’s very normal for both men and women to have hair that starts thinning over time.

What Sort of Grooming Practices Lead to Hair Thinning?

The truth is that once you’ve reached a certain age or you’re experiencing pattern baldness or alopecia, there is a potential that you can’t reverse the hair loss. 

However, this isn’t to say that there’s absolutely nothing that can be done. It can be beneficial to avoid harmful environmental factors such as excessive sunlight, which can bleach and weaken hair. You also don’t want to brush your hair too aggressively, especially if your hair is still wet from the shower, swimming or a bath. We do not recommend wearing buns too tightly, as this can strain your follicles, weaken individual strands and even lead to traction alopecia.

Is There Anything That Can Prevent Hair Loss?

Always make sure to treat your hair gently and care for it consistently. Whether your hair is fine, wavy, curly, thick or bristly, practice incorporating a regimented routine into your life that you stick to. Shop thoughtfully for products that you know work.
