  • MANIKANDAN.S:- [ 4/20/2005 ] Hair forms in a pouch-like structure below the skin called a hair follicle. What we see as hair is actually the hair shaft, which is the keratinized, hardened tissue that grows from this follicle. Humans have more hair follicles per square inch of skin than most higher primates, including chimpanzees and gorillas. Because most of this hair is fine and pale (called vellus hair), it usually isn't visible to the naked eye. Our hair grows at a rate of 15cm a year.

Only about 80% of your follicles are producing hair at any one time. The rest of the follicles are asleep or dormant. When dormant hair follicles start working again, they push out an old hair while making a new one. You could lose 50 to 100 hairs in any day. Some of us lose more than that–and don’t get them back again!
  • akshita:- [ 4/2/2006 ] Our hair grows in month. If we will have our food daily then our hair will grow.

  • Vihasi:- [ 5/17/2006 ] The speed of hair growth is roughly 1.25 centimeters or 0.5 inches per month. but it also depends on which type of water comes to ur house because if its really bad water, ur hair may not grow that long.With age the speed of hairgrowth might slow down to as little as 0.25 cm or 0.1 inch a month. Cell division is responsible for the hair growth cycle. The new cells push the hair forward to make it longer,so the new hair is added at the root. There are about 100.000 hairs on a healthy scalp of hair. Each of these hairs will, in normal healthy conditions, last from one to six years. People lose about 100 hairs per day, in normal conditions. The fallen hair is replaced by new hair.

  • Kartic Bhargav:- [ 5/27/2006 ] Other factors. Well,actually to say this is a very non-sensible question. To be precise, growth of hair obviously depends on one's age ,his type of occupation and the way he treats his hair. For example, a person who's too much conscious about his/her hair will apply most synthetics as in the ads on tv and spoil his / her hair .Actually to say this growth of hair doesnt matter ,but if you r trying to impress people Intellect and a good socially acceptable character is enough.
  • Ruchika Mishra:- [ 5/28/2006 ] Hair grows because of sufficient protiens and vitamins.It generally depends upon a person's diet.If a person successfully maintains his/her diet, then of course he gets a fine and managable hair. Our hair grows 5cm/year.

At any one time, 85 percent of hair is growing and 15 percent is resting.

  • Penny Helgason:- [ 11/16/2006 ] What affect does space travel have on hair growth? In what time frame? Does hair grow faster/slower and by how much?
  • c.r.sahu:- [ 12/23/2006 ] In space hair must be growing faster in absence of gravity. Thats why the space crews cut their hair while in space. it is a regular phenomenon for crews. recently Sunita Williams got her long hair cut and has sent the cut hair to earth for donating it for good cause to a person to use it as a wig . The reason for quick hair growing in space is not known to me.
