Sometimes in life, it appears that our hair stops growing completely. However, this is simply a myth. What can you do if this happens to your hair? How can you inject some life into your locks ? The pros reveal all…
Only hormonal changes or illnesses can totally stop your hair from growing. ‘What’s more, your hair is constantly growing. You just don’t realise that they’re growing a tad slower.’
This phenomenon often effects women with fine hair the most. ‘Fine hair is more susceptible to external factors which therefore makes it more difficult to grow long. If your hair wears thin when you’re growing it, your hair will stay the same length for a while. You’re probably going to need to give your hair around 3 or 4 times longer to grow than anticipated. Also, since your hair is wearing thin, book in regular hair appointments to keep your style looking in good shape. Therefore, it’s probably going to be quite difficult to have long hair.’
It’s important to realise that not all hair types can have long hair. ‘Every person has their ‘ideal’ of what they want their hair to be like, which is different for everyone. Some women can grow their hair right down to their lower back, others down to their shoulders. Indian women have beautiful hair which can grow very quickly. However, it’s rare that women can grow their hair more than 80cm long, even in India’
Our advice: Try taking vitamins if you feel that your hair has stopped growing and has become weaker over time. It’s a fact that some vitamins like B6 can strengthen the hair and help with hair growth.
