Will Hair Grow Faster and Thicker if It's Cut Frequently?
Although getting your hair trimmed will help it to look better and fuller because you are removing the split ends where hair tends to be thinner at the bottom, it will not make your hair grow faster. Hair is actually dead protein. The root is where growth takes place and it is not aware of what goes on down at the end of the hair. Tiny blood vessels at the base of every follicle feed the hair root to keep it growing. But once the hair is at the skin's surface, it is not alive anymore and has become dead skin cells. That's why it doesn't cause pain when someone cuts your hair with scissors! A healthy diet, proper rest, and regular exercise will help to keep your roots healthy and growing hair to their maximum potential. Massaging your scalp is a good way to stimulate your hair follicles to grow because it helps to increase blood flow to the follicle.
