Do you feel as though you’ve had the same hair length for as long as you can remember? Your hair sits somewhere around shoulder length and never seems to get any longer? You might be asking yourself why won’t my hair grow past a certain length? Here’s the thing. It is growing! It just might be at a snail’s pace or damage to the hair is stopping any visible length.
If your aim is to have gorgeously long hair then read on to understand why your hair won’t grow past a certain length.
It’s in your genes
Oh hello, Mother Nature. Yes sometimes it is the case that we’re simply not as genetically-blessed as others when it comes to our hair. There are babies who are born with full heads of hair and go on to lead lives full of fabulous hair-swishing (living the dream in our opinion!) and there are others who have fine and delicate hair often in need of a little encouragement.
The hair growth cycle works in three stages but can vary a little from person to person therefore some people will appear to have a fuller head of hair depending on how long their hair grows before entering the shedding stage of the hair growth cycle. It’s simply down to genetics, unfortunately with this one there’s very little that can be done.
Age is a factor
Asking your age is ill-mannered, unless we’re talking about your hair.
Just like genetics, your age may also be a factor in why your hair won’t grow past a certain length. If you think about the years you’ve clocked up coloring, cutting and heat-styling your hair then it’s no wonder that older hair is more fragile. All the processes your hair goes through as you age, as does our skin, then hair will become weaker and even less flexible (like those aching joints) and it can even begin to thin. Hair that is thin and weak will struggle to grow as long as it used to be able to as there is less hair to support the length and thin ends tend to snap off. You can improve hair strength with our caffeine-charged Hair Density Serum. With hyaluronic acid and an intense blend of unique actives it helps boost hair health, moisturizes the scalp and encourage hair grow and density.
