Since high school to the end of University my hair had always been the same length. That’s like ten years. Funny enough it is the length it is now after a big chop and one and a half years of growth. After research I obviously found out that the relaxer wasn’t healthy for my hair. It went from black to a funny brown. Then there was the fact that i didn’t pay much attention to my hair. It was heat every week, relaxer at the end of two to three months.
“We all have a maximum length our hair can reach according to our current regime. This is where your ends simply begin to break instead of continue to remain strong and healthy. Until you change your existing habits and products used on your hair, nothing will change about your hair. Trim the split ends, use thermal protection and safe thermal tools, and use the right hair mask and treatment to nourish your hair, because clearly you’ve plateaued and nothing will change unless you make some changes yourself!”says Shab Aghajani, Roy Teeluck Salon stylist.
“This does not mean that hair always stops growing once it reaches a specific length, but once a certain amount of time has passed. The growth phase is largely determined by genetics and typically lasts between two and six years,” says Dr. James C. Marotta
2. Age, this is a little bit obvious. “Studies have shown that the biology of hair can change, and the growth stage may shorten. This means that hair could begin shedding faster, making it appear thinner and shorter. Additionally, oil production on the scalp often begins to slow down after age 45, so hair may be less hydrated and appear coarser, making it more susceptible to damage and breakage,” says Dr. Marotta.
3. Breakage caused by mishandling of hair. Handling hair too roughly, using uncovered hair elastics, and brushing too often can cause dryness and brittleness. Bleaching and chemical processes can cause hair to be overprocessed and lose elasticity and moisture. “Since hair grows about half an inch each month, if it is continuing to break off at about that same rate, you will see little to no growth,” says Dr. Marotta.
5. Skin conditions on your scalp. an unhealthy scalp can cause inflammation that makes it difficult for hair to grow. Skin conditions that lead to hair loss and lack of growth include seborrheic dermatitis (dandruff), psoriasis, and fungal infections such as ringworm.
Tomorrow to the end of the month I will post about points 3-5, and how to beat the conditions that lead to terminal growth. Unfortunately I cannot help with ! and 2 being Genetics and Age. You can try crossing your fingers, or pray for your hair. I used to do that when I was little, bargain with God just for an inch more of hair. haha! Crazy!
See you tomorrow guys.
