On average, hair grows at a rate of 1/4 to 1/2 inch per 30 days. Several factors can affect the rate of hair growth, including diet and health conditions. If you are experiencing problems with slow hair growth, or hair loss, consult your physician to rule out possible illnesses, akin to a nutritional deficiency or a thyroid condition. Some hair remedies can encourage hair growth by stimulating blood flow to the hair follicles.
