It is only a myth that hair grows faster after it is cut. Hair is mostly made up of proteins, so, to quickly grow hair, eat lots of protein.

Psychologically, people think hair grows quickly after it is cut because the difference an inch or so of growth when hair is really short is much more than the difference of an inch or so when hair is already long. When hair doubles in length, even if that is only by an inch, the results seem extreme compared to an inch of growth of six inch hair.

Your hair won't grow faster, It continues to grow from the root with the same rate. However, when you cut your hair you get rid of damaged hair and split ends. Split ends cause breakage at the tip of your hair, consequently, although your hair is growing from the root, it breaks and gets shorter from the tip! Once you cut your hair hair breakage will be stopped and your hair becomes longer and longer (as long as you take good care of it and avoid heat and chemical damage to it!)

Cutting it has no effect on the rate it grows at, however, when your hair is short, it is much more noticeable when it grows out, and so it seems to grow faster.

Look at it this way: If your hair is an inch long, and grows half an inch, its 50% longer.

But if your hair is 5 inches long, and grows half an inch, that's only 10% longer.

It may appear to, but it doesn't. Hair grows roughly at the rate of 1/2 inch a month. If your hair is very short, let's say an inch, a half inch of hair growth is very noticeable. If your hair is three or four inches, another 1/2 inch of growth won't stand out nearly as much.

I wouldn't say it grows faster, I would say it grows easier because when you get the slip ends cut, it refreshes your hair and it makes hair grow easier. Hair grows about 2 inches/month.

It's a myth. It may seem tog grow faster due to the law of relativity.

It's honestly just a myth. Hair will not grow back darker either.
