Why Can’t I Grow My Hair Longer?

The growth of your hair follicles is dependent on a couple of factors – diets, genetics and hormones. Most pregnant woman notice that their hair feels thicker and stronger due to the extra hormones in the body during pregnancy.

Your hair strand is made up of three layers – the cortex, cuticle and medulla. The cortex and medulla store the pigment responsible for your hair colour. Not everyone will have very long hair and if you happen to be in this category of people, then you most likely have flat follicles.

Regular haircuts and conditioning hair treatment can speed up hair growth, but they will not help you to hair with great lengths if you have flat follicles.

Flat follicles do not grip hair firmly hence shorter hair length, unlike round follicles that have a very firm grip on hair, leading to very long hair. As your hair grows longer, it becomes heavier, and when the weight gets too much for your hair follicles, they release the hair, but there is no need for worry as they will grow again.

Why Haircuts Are Painless

Hair passes through the follicles as they grow. The hair growing through the hair follicles are nourished with cell protein picked from the blood vessels around the scalp. With more cell protein, the hair grows longer and forces its way out through the skin.

When the hair has pushed through the skin and becomes visible, it is already dead, and this is why you do not feel a thing when you have a haircut.
