“Does hair grow slower in the winter and faster in summer? Or is it that hair grows faster in winter and slower in summer? I’m confused!”
For some people, hair growth actually happens faster in the summer than in winter. This is due to a change in hormones in the body requiring faster cell division due to more efficient blood circulation throughout the body. Blood and nutrients are essentially supplied more frequently to the base of the hair resulting in faster hair growth. According to The Beauty Brains, the difference in rate can range anywhere from 10-60%.
To optimize your hair growth in any season be sure to stay hydrated, eat a balanced diet high in raw fruits, vegetables and water, and keep that body active!
Cheers to faster growing summer hair!
