Hair breakage can occur due to a variety of factors, including the use of heat styling tools, coloring the hair, or the use of harsh hair care products. The duration of hair breakage is determined by the underlying cause of the breakage and the steps you take to address it.
If you have hair breakage as a result of heat styling or coloring, the breakage may persist until you allow your hair to grow out and cut off the damaged ends. You can try using heat-protective styling products, avoiding heat styling tools as much as possible, and using a deep conditioning treatment on a regular basis to nourish and strengthen your hair to prevent further breakage.
If you have hair breakage as a result of using harsh hair care products, switching to more nourishing and gentle products may help to reduce further breakage. Use a deep conditioning treatment on a regular basis to help strengthen and repair your hair.
How Long Does It Take For Hair To Grow Back?
The length of time it takes for damaged hair to grow back depends on the extent of the damage and the steps you take to repair it. Hair grows about half an inch (1.25 cm) per month, or about 6 inches (15 cm) per year on average. This, however, varies depending on factors such as age, genetics, and overall health.
If your hair has been damaged by heat styling or coloring, the damaged hair may take longer to grow out and be replaced by healthy new hair. To help prevent further damage and promote healthy hair growth, use heat-protective styling products, avoid using heat styling tools as much as possible, and use a deep conditioning treatment on a regular basis.
If you have damaged your hair due to harsh hair care products or chemical treatments, switching to more nourishing and gentle products may help to reduce further damage and encourage healthy hair growth. Use a deep conditioning treatment on a regular basis to help strengthen and repair your hair.
It is critical to be patient and allow your hair to grow and repair itself. In the meantime, try styling your hair in ways that will hide any damage or breakage, such as braids, updos, or loose waves.
Also it’s important to note if you hair was damaged close to the roots, this is the worst case scenario and it will take the maximum time for your hair to grow back because you will require a really shorty hair cut.
Chin Length Hair
Chin-length hair is around 6-8 inches (15-20 cm) in length. However, it is important to note that the length of chin-length hair can vary depending on the individual, and what is considered chin-length on one person may not be on another.
So If you hair grows at 1.25 cm per month if you got a really short hair cut it will take a little less than 6 months to grow back to chin length.
Shoulder Length Hair
Shoulder-length hair is about 10-12 inches. So If you hair grows at 1.25 cm per month if you got a really short hair cut it will take about 8 months to grow back.
Middle Of The Back Length Hair
Middle-Of-Back-length hair is about 20-30 inches. So If you hair grows at 1.25 cm per month if you got a really short hair cut it will take about 20 months to grow back.
It is also important to note that some people may experience slower hair growth due to factors such as age, hormonal imbalances, or certain health conditions.
Is It Possible To Make Your Hair Grow Faster?
Although it is not possible to make your hair grow faster, there are a few things you can do to promote healthy hair growth and maximize the potential length of your hair:
- Consume a healthy, well-balanced diet: Getting enough nutrients, such as protein, iron, and vitamins A and C, can aid in healthy hair growth.
- Avoid heat styling: Heat styling tools, such as hair dryers, flat irons, and curling irons, can cause hair damage and inhibit growth. Try to use heat styling tools as little as possible and use heat-protective products when you do.
- Use a deep conditioning treatment regularly: Use a deep conditioning treatment on a regular basis: Deep conditioning treatments can nourish and strengthen the hair, promoting healthy growth.
- Avoid harsh hair care products: Avoid using harsh hair care products, such as those containing sulfates and alcohol, which can strip the hair of its natural oils and damage the hair shaft. Instead, opt for nourishing, sulfate-free products.
- Avoid tight hairstyles: Tight hairstyles, such as tight ponytails or cornrows, can cause breakage and inhibit growth.
According to a 2005 study published in the Journal of Dermatology, the average rate of hair growth is approximately 0.5 inch (1.25 cm) per month, or approximately 6 inch (15 cm) per year.
According to a 2013 study published in the American Journal of Clinical Dermatology, younger people have faster hair growth than older people, and the rate of hair growth slows with age.
According to a 2014 study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, diet can influence hair growth and that a lack of nutrients like protein, iron, and vitamins A and C may contribute to hair loss.
According to a 2015 study published in the Journal of Dermatology, heat styling and coloring the hair can cause damage and inhibit growth, and that using heat-protective products and limiting heat styling may help to support healthy hair growth.
According to a 2018 study published in the Journal of Dermatological Science, using nourishing hair care products, such as those containing antioxidants and keratin, may aid in healthy hair growth.
