Hair Myth: Trimming makes your hair grow faster!

MYTH: The more you trim your hair the faster it'll grow!
FACT: I've heard this said many times and many ways, but it simply isn't true.


Your hair technically isn't alive, so it doesn't know its being cut. If it were alive then you'd feel the pain from the cut.The only "live" part of your hair is the follicle, which is in your scalp. Trimming split ends off when necessary will make your hair appear to be longer by making it look more uniform and healthy.


Fast Facts:
  • Hair grows about 1/4 to 1/2 an inch per month no matter how much you cut
  • Ridding your hair of damaged ends will reduce breakage and help retain length
  • Overall health, genetics, and hormones determine hair growth
  • Hair that's cut short only appears to be thicker, because the width of hair closer to the scalp is thicker than hair farther away
