Having long hair remains an eternal symbol of femininity. While many fashion trends are pushing short and medium-length hairstyles, more women prefer to have long, thick, and glamorous hair. However, long hair requires a lot of effort and care to keep it healthy and looking good. Often, many questions arise related to long hair. How long does hair grow in a month? In a year?

An exact answer to the question of how long hair grows in a month cannot be given. There are many factors that affect hair growth, and the rate of hair growth is different for everyone.
