Men's Hair Growth

Q: Please could you tell me if a manís hair grows faster than women's hair? How long does a manís hair grow in a month?
 
A: Menís and womenís hair grows at equal rates on average Ė approximately Ĺ-inch per month. Of course, there is some slight variance from individual to individual, but this isnít significant in determining any superior growth rate in men or women.
 
man and woman       It is, however, often believed that menís hair grows faster, but this is because of a trick of relativity. Typically, menís hairstyles are significantly shorter than those of women. It is not uncommon for a manís haircut to include sections that are less than Ĺ-inch in length. Because of this, a manís hair will seem to grow faster, since in a monthís time any section of less than Ĺ-inch will effectively double in length. That same amount of growth in a hairstyle that is even 4 inches long becomes barely notable by comparison.
 
      Of course, there are exceptions to this situation in the case of both sexes. For women, there is often a significant increase in the rate of hair growth as a result of pregnancy hormones. (Just as many women experience hair loss as the hormone surges end after pregnancy.)
 
      In men, the sex hormones (the ones that govern the development of primary and secondary sexual characteristics) cause an increase in the rate of growth in the facial hair. The problem is that this can contribute to male pattern baldness.
