    Hi,

    Don't worry, if you want to have long hair.  Just trim --- NOT cut --- your hair every 4/6 weeks.  

    I use to have long hair down to my waist.  Every time I cut it short, it grows right back down to my waist.  Every.  Single.  Time.  

    A few months ago, I cut my hair short again and today, it's down past my shoulders.  I should have my long hair again in one year or so.  No biggie.

    Be patient.

    Just curious, why do you want to know as soon as possible?

    It does and it goes through a rest phase. Depending on your genes your anagen phase (the phase where it's actively growing) can vary depending on your genes.

    No, it rests on one day of the week just as the bible tells us to do.

    When you hear about hair growing a half inch each month, its just an average.

    On average your hair will grown about 1/60 of an inch per day. Yes, that's very, very small. That still adds up to a half inch each month.

    Hair has stages, in the growing stage it grows continuously, day or night. When the hair bulb enters the resting phase, it doesn’t grow at all, the third phase, it falls out.

    Yeah it grows about 1/60th of an inch a day, you wouldn’t be able to measure it or anything but it’s true.
