Does black hair really grow slower than other races? We take an in-depth look at the human hair growth cycle…

Aside from curl definition and texture, natural hair length & growth is an area that a lot of naturals are noticeably particularly concerned with. There is seemingly an association placed on having long luscious hair and a woman’s femininity, dare I even say her beauty? From questions such as ‘How can I make my natural hair grow faster?”, “why is my natural hair not growing?”, “How fast should my natural hair be growing”, length retention be it natural or relaxed is something women in large crave.
Hair growth cycle thumbI know this may seem a little primary, elementary for our US readers, but I feel it necessary to first define what growth actually is. “Growth is the process in which something increases in size”. With that definition in mind, it is understandable why some may perceive the lack of length retention as their natural hair not growing. The ends of the hair may be breaking off at a faster rate than the hair is growing, causing  the hair to seemingly staying at one length.
