No growth
Jul 23rd, 2009 at 12:48pm
 
Hi, everyone,  my hair has apparently stopped growing, and I am experiencing more shedding than normal.  I think it is my normal spring molt,  Smiley  just delayed because it was so unseasonably cool this year until well into June.  I know that hair enters a resting stage, but not when, how often or how long.  Any insights here?  thanks.

Hi!  When an individual hair falls, it rests 100 days before growing anew.  I don't know about the whole head though, if it rests w/o loosing the hair and then starts adding new length.

I think sometimes it can seem like no new growth if the ends are breaking off.  I think this happens the longer (older) the hair is as it is more fragile.

Just my .02.

My hair stoppped growing this winter.  It was from stress (leaving my ex) and the fact I had stopped taking my biotin.  Once I was settled and started taking my biotin it began to grow again. That's all I can think of Mel....

Thank you, Isabeau and Sakina.  I think some of it is breakage, which could be because I am putting it up in a bun, using bobby pins on the weekend under my snood.  Hmm, I will have to try something else.  Any suggestions?

How about the Amish Hair Pins?  They work great for a bun or maybe under a snood!

I know I'm a Spring/Summer shedder too.  I've got that faux mohawk thing going on at the top. Grin  Sorry, I don't know any more than you.  It's the regrowth after the shedding.  It's not a bad thing it just looks awful.

Thank you all, I think the breakage is coming from the leave in products I have been trying to tame the frizzies.  Mousse, gel, and serums all seem to cause breakage.  So now I am trying conditioning and rinsing every morming in the shower, and cutting down the vinegar rinses to every 2nd or 3rd shampoo, which I do every 3rd or 4th day.  The extra conditioning does seem to tame the frizzies somewhat.

It could just be that your longer lengths were in a resting phase and the shorter "new hair was ina growing phase, thus making it appear you were not gainging any length. This is just a theory.
