How long is 6 inch of hair?

How long is 6 inch of hair? What will your hair look like when it reaches twelve inch or more? Without a ruler, it’s hard to visually measure how long your hair is just by touching it or peering into the mirror. You will never know if you don’t have the best grasp of visualizing measurements. I’m horrible at that and also have no idea what six inches look like for real.

How long is 6 inch of hair? Here you go, it depends on the style and texture of your hair, 6 inch of hair may fall a bit longer or shorter. And as you know, curly or wavy hair will always appear shorter because the shaft of the hair is coiled and spiraled.

How fast does hair really grow?

When we were born, we had the total amount of hair follicles we will ever have over our lifetime. There may be about 5 million on our body, but there are just about 100,000 follicles on our head. As we become older, some follicles stop producing hair, which is how baldness or hair thinning occurs.

The American Academy of Dermatology says that our hair grows about 1/2 inch per month on average. That's a grand total of about 6 inch of hair per year on your head.

How fast your hair grows will depend on many criterias, such as your age, your specific hair type, overall health and other health conditions.

Science has discovered little about how hair growth is controlled at the cellular level in the body and has also revealed enough for us to know how we can directly speed up hair growth. And by reaching many documents, we found some tips and tricks to make our hair grow faster. It is considered to help you get 6 inch of hair in 6 months.

Horse shampoo

The first tip we recommend in this post is horse shampoo. The most common product on the market is called "Mane 'n Tail", like on a horse. It is available at places like Amazon, Bed Bath and Beyond, Rite Aid, and Target. It is a lot more common than you may imagine if you haven't heard of it. Basically, the reason is that this shampoo and conditioner is infused with a lot more nutrients and vitamins than normal human hair shampoo because horses have more coarse hair. There are many different kinds of the shampoo for you to use, including Original, Deep Moisturizing, Herbal Gro and Color Protect. In our opinion, the Herbal Gro is the best and has the nicest smell. When you get the shampoo, remember to also get conditioner!!

Brush your hair

Another thing that we have learned is brushing your hair as much as you can. This may not be suitable for fluffy haired girls, but before you go to bed make sure to brush through your hair a few times to eliminate any dead hairs and pull on the roots a little bit to get your hair growth started. We have also heard if you brush your hair upside down it can be even more effective. So easy, let’s try this.

Don't wash your hair too often

We all know this is much easier said than done, but one of the best ways for your hair to grow quickly is that you allow your hair's natural oils to accumulate and do its work. Keep in mind that washing your hair with shampoo and conditioner all the time strips your hair of the oils it needs to grow. We wash our hair every other day, but if you can make it longer, power to you.


Consistent trims

This trick sounds quite ridiculous but many professionals recommend getting consistent trims to keep your hair as healthy as possible, even though this seems rather counterintuitive because the goal is to get it even longer. This helps you ensure that when your hair is growing it's not getting split ends so it's both long and healthy.


Heat protectants

The last tip of our guide is heat protectants. Applying a heat protectant before using a curler or straightener can save your hair from having damaged and broken that will inevitably need to get cut. If you can avoid using heat products at all, then that's even better. We only use heat tools for special occasions now, to try to save us from split ends. The heat protectant we highly recommend is Garnier Fructis Flat Iron Perfector. Another heat protectant many people use is the Chi 44 Iron Guard.
