Does Cutting Your Hair Make It Grow Faster?

One of the greatest debates and oldest myths in the beauty book is the belief that cutting your hair will make it grow faster. Let's settle this right now, once and for all!

Your hair will not physically grow any faster, thicker or stronger if you cut it more frequently. What you do to the ends simply doesn't effect the roots.

However, frequent cuts can make your locks look healthier, since cutting hair eliminates split and gnarled ends.

Hair grows, on average, at a rate of about a half-inch per month, so experts recommend regular cuts about every two months, particularly if you're letting your hair grow long. This will help it look its best as it gets longer.
