How to grow my hair faster to rectify a bad haircut?

Reader's Query

H. A asks
I used to keep my hair shoulder-length, but on the advice and under the influence of some friends, I had it cut very short. Now I feel very depressed and the sight of short hair grieves me. How can I make it grow back long quickly?

Smitha responds:

You cannot increase the pace a which your hair grows. The average growth rate is about 1.25 cm per month or about 15 centimetres or 6 inches per year. However it also depends on your age, your current health, genetics and your hormonal state. (In pregnancy hair growth is reported to increase. ) Also it grows faster in summer than in winter and usually grows fastest on women who are between 15 and 30 years old.

Also the average hair growth rate of Asian females is more than her Caucasian counterpart  while the least hair growth is that African females.  Interestingly, the growth rate of the males doesn't differ significantly from the females.

You can make your hair more luxuriant by eating foods, rich in protein (Read Top 5 Foods for Healthy, Beautiful Hair) and giving your hair and scalp a daily massage with warm olive or coconut oil.
