“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!”
If we had a dollar for each time someone asked, “Does natural hair grow faster in the summer?” we’d be rich.
For some people, hair growth actually grows 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. 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!
