@Waitingbee57:  Everyone is different so I can’t really answer you.

What I will say is that I cut my hair off in Feb of 2010 for our engagement party and it was past my breasts by the wedding in November of 2012.

Hair grows faster when its healthy and if you give it trims. I also used a shampoo and conditoner that helps your hair to grow faster (whether it did or not I am not sure) So maybe look at a product that will help you.

I hope it grows back for you but either way hairstylists can work magic and theres always hair extensions!

@Jacofblues:  While I am not a hairstylist- there is no truth to the hair grows better when you give it trims theory.  It just keeps the ends of your hair healthier, therefore avoiding breakage.  I think this was just an old wives tale our grandparents told us to get our hair cut LOL


Take a pre-natal vitamin and make sure you’re scalp is super healthy- that’s what’s going to make sure your hair grows fast!!

You can try taking either prenatals or biotin. I think you’ll be fine to have it grown back out by the wedding.

@Waitingbee57:  That is a lot to remove. It may grow back. Everyones hair grows at different speeds. However you will definatly have enough hair to add extensions if you need more hair. I wouldnt panic you should be ok.

Does your hair grow fast? That should help answer the question.

My hair stylist said average hair growth over one year is 6 inches. Since that is an average, some people will grow more, and some will grow less in that time. I wouldn’t be worried about it, unless you know you are one of those who’s hair grows very slowly. I don’t really think there is that much that you can do to make your hair grow signficantly faster, though taking vitamins couldn’t hurt. The best thing you can do is to minimize the damage you do to your hair in the next year. Baby the crap out it by limiting the amound of heat styling you do, using heat protecting hair products. The gentler you are, the less likely you will have to cut more off because it’s damaged.

Head hair grows on average approximately 1cm per month. So by October you’re looking at about 10cm = 4 inches of hair growth. This is just on average; I’m basing this on my experience working in a hair testing laboratory. I have heard that some vitamins etc can help promote the growth.
