The Science of Hair - Part two

Rate of Growth

The rate at which our hair grows in genetically determined. Therefore products/ pills which claim to aid growth tend not to work, therefore I tend to avoid them like the plague. Healthy Caucasian hair rate of growth is around 1-1.25cm per month but research shows that it slows down when hair reaches 27cm (10 inches). Afro-Caribbean hair growth is actually a lot slower at around half of that of the rate of growth of Caucasian hair. Whereas Mongolian hair grows rapidly and exceeds the the growth rate of Caucasians.

This does make me question what my rate of growth is, as someone who is half afro-Caribbean and half Caucasian. I would say that may hair does actually grow at 1-125cm per month although it must be different for different people.



  1. Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace. See the link below for more info.


  2. We all need challenges in our life to keep motivated. I really had a great time scanning and reading your blog site and i was so amazed with your great artwork. I do hope you could inspire more readers. You can also visit my site for some interesting stuff.
