How fast does hair really grow?

To answer the question of how to improve hair growth, we must look at the life cycle of a hair strand. This will enable you to understand the science behind easy hair growth. Hair has 4 phases of growth: Anagen, Catagen, Telogen and Exogen.

  • Anagen: The growing phase is called the Anagen phase. It lasts for about 2 to 7 years. This phase actually determines the length of your hair.

  • Catagen: This phase is called the Transition phase or the Catagen phase. The hair strand in this phase shrinks and detaches from the dermal layer. This phase lasts for about 10 days.

  • Telogen: This phase lasts for about three months and is called the Resting phase or the Telogen phase. This is the phase when old hair rests and new hair strands start emerging.

  • Exogen: This phase is called the New Resting phase or the Exogen phase. In this phase, the old hair falls off and new hair starts growing. A total of 50 to 100 hair strands can fall off daily.

In order to grow your hair, you must go through all the phases. Although there are no short-cuts for hair growth, there are a few tips and tricks that you can adopt to make your hair grow faster.

How long does hair take to grow?

The American Academy of Dermatology says that hair grows half an inch per month. So in a year, the hair can grow to a total length of about 6 inches. hair can grow to a total length of about 6 inches. In order to quickly grow your hair, you need to turn on the Anagen or the growth phase of the hair.

While scientists are still trying to figure out what triggers the Anagen phase, there are tips to encourage the Anagen phase of hair growth.

What factors can affect hair growth?

Hair growth is a result of a number of factors including genetics, age, environmental factors and lifestyle choices.

  • Genetics: Genes are the most important factors for hair growth. One particular research has shown that activation of a particular gene called the gene Lhx2 leads to increased hair growth. This has been demonstrated by Leif Carlsson's research team at Umeå University in Sweden.

  • Environmental factors: Certain environmental factors such as harmful UV rays, dust and pollution are bad for hair. They damage hair strands, make hair dry and frizzy and can even lead to hair loss.

  • Lifestyle choices: Certain lifestyle choices may also affect hair growth. Hair growth is prompted by the living cells that can be found under the hair follicles. Good blood circulation that can be achieved through regular brushing and gentle hair oil massages can lead to hair growth.

How can I speed up hair growth?

Here are the 10 simple tips that can really boost your hair growth. Here’s a look:-

  1. Brush your hair carefully: Brushing your hair can really promote hair growth by activating the cells that lie below hair follicles. These cells are responsible for triggering on the Anagen phase of hair growth. Once the Anagen phase is triggered, your hair follicles will start growing.

  2. Shampoo your hair regularly: This will make sure that the scalp is free of dust and grime, thereby promoting hair growth. If you suffer from dandruff, then use an anti-dandruff shampoo to keep your scalp clean. Keeping your scalp clean is crucial for hair growth.

  3. Conditioning your hair is a must: Conditioner locks the moisture of your hair follicles, thereby preventing it from drying up. Loss of moisture can make your hair dry and frizzy leading to hair damage and hair fall. This may also affect the length of your hair.

  4. Avoid heating equipment like curlers and straighteners: This is because electronic heating equipment can dry up your hair and may make your hair frizzy. They can also lead to hair breakage and split-ends, thereby negatively affecting the height of your hair.

  5. Avoid brushing your hair vigorously: This is because brushing hair vigorously may lead to injury on the scalp. It may also lead to hair damage including hair loss. Further, it may influence the Catagen phase of your hair’s life cycle, thereby influencing the hair length.

  6. Chuck the use of plastic: Plastic combs may lead to the development of static electricity that may cause your hair to become dry. Dry and frizzy hair is not good for long tresses.

  7. Supplements: Vitamins and supplements, especially Omega-3 supplements and supplements of vitamins D, C and E are good for hair regrowth. Although much more research is needed, however, it is safe to say that certain supplements may be good for your hair, as they have no side effects.

  8. Blood circulation: Hair oil massage and hair spas help in improving the blood circulation of the scalp, promoting hair growth as a result.

  9. Try to eat a healthy and balanced diet: A wholesome diet based on legumes, good fats, fruits and vegetables is good for both the skin and the hair. Also, increase the protein intake of your diet as hair growth requires protein

  10. Take keratin supplements: Hair follicles are mainly made up of keratin. Taking keratin supplements have shown to result in reduction in hair loss and improvement in hair strength with greater brightness and lustre.

It took me 1 Year to decide whether I wanted to go through with the hair restoration procedure using a Natural Looking Hair piece. I did a lot of research and consulted with many people who had done the procedure.

I was convinced to go ahead due to the information session / in-depth knowledge and the excellent customer service skills of Sanjay- the manager.

I did the procedure 1 month ago and I can honestly say that it was the best decision ever. Advanced Hair Studio provides the best quality for the Hair Pieces. The staff takes the time to understand what you are looking for as a customer. They style your hair based on your facial structure and I must truly admit that their stylists are pure Artists! My favourite stylist is Mohamad from Lebanon. He does magic with his hands and I am always thrilled with the new styles/ suggestions he provides.

I must admit that AHS is on the more expensive side if you were to consider the other competitors in Dubai. However, it is all worth every penny spent! You will not regret it.

Do not over think it. Just go ahead an do the procedure. You will evolve into a whole new person! Believe me! :-)

I started losing my hair in my mid-twenties and in spite of trying all sorts of treatments it gradually got worse and worse. By my late twenties I started cutting my hair short. Whenever I tried to grow it, it used to look a mess and was impossible to style because of my receding and thinning. I was looking at doing a hair transplant for a while, but I kept delaying it in hope that there was some alternative.

When I was in my mid-thirties I first came across AHS. I was a bit skeptical but I thought I’d find out what they could do. I was expecting a sales pitch but what I learned about hair loss and hair restoration from them was presented in a straightforward and logical way, without lots of medical terminology. They take time to explain the root cause of the problem and explore all the different treatments.

I decided to go ahead with the treatment and as it turns out, having AHS fix my hair was one of the best decisions I ever made. I still cannot believe how good my results are. I just wish I’d done it 10 years earlier rather than wasting so much time (and hair!). I would urge anyone who is thinking of doing something to check them out.
