How fast does your hair grow / how often do you get it cut?
The getting it cut bit will probably relate to your style too but I find that mine grows super fast. I got it cut about 6 months ago to just below my shoulders and it's probably grown nearly 15cm since then.
Before that I hadn't cut it for about two years and it'd grown past my bum. I don't want to get it all the time but it just gets too long! How often do you cut your hair?
Mine is in a shorter style so probably about every 10 weeks or so. Yours sounds like my dds - she has it cut as short as it will go and still be long enough to put in a ponytail, then before you can turn round it's off down her back again.
Supposedly, hair grows around 1cm a month- so 1 inch and a bit in 12 weeks.
I get mine cut about every 8-10 weeks depending on how much was chopped off before. I always ask for around 2cms, and my hair is mid-length. I can go for longer between cuts but suddenly it starts looking a it tatty and loses shape (long layers).
Its long and I haven't had it cut for a record 16 months, although I colour it at home. It does need a god 2-3 inches lobbed off the end if I'm honest, but have got 'the hairdresser fear' at the moment.
Usually, I would go 2-3 times a year. My hair grows fast, but it doesn't need a trim every 6 weeks. No way.
When I had a short bob, I had it done every 8 weeks with monthly fringe trims.
I get mine highlighted every 8 weeks but only cut twice a year it's currently just below my shoulders as I had it cut in dec, won't be cut now till June or July. It grows about a cm a month on ave but more some months and less others.
I wish mine was fast growing! I've tried to grow mine unsuccessfully back to mid-back length for the last, 6 years but my stupid hair colouring obsession put a stop to that & I keep having to to get regular 'chop offs!' Don't think mine will ever grow long again now, it changed in texture as soon as I hit my 40's...and I've tried the hair growth shampoos, which don't work, not on me anyway! No, it's time to down tools as they say, well hair colours should I say & see if I can get this crowning glory to grow! Oh, I usually cut it myself, or I might go to a local salon every 6 months & get a proper cut!
Mine is very curly and rarely looks longer than shoulder length. I had it cut to collarbone length 2 and a half years ago and it's now about 2 or 3 inches past my shoulders, but only looks just shoulder length.
So jealous of people whose hair grows so long, so quickly!
Mine is bra strap length. This time last year it was about 4" shorter so pollyperky is about right in my case. I have it trimmed about 4 times a year just the ends and nip off any straggly bits in between myself.
