Hair grows too fast!



This may be an unusual or different question... in fact most people wouldn't think this is a "hair problem"... Okay, here's the deal. I got my hair cut three weeks ago, and it's already grown a good two inches!! My nails grow very fast, too. I'm just wondering why my hair grows at such a rapid pace? It's almost worrying me. I've never heard of hair growing this fast before. . . Should I be worried?

Thanks in advance

Talking Re: Hair grows too fast!

I don't think that it's bad.I think that's great and healthy that your hair grew that fast.Some people would kill for their hair to grow that fast.

Re: Hair grows too fast!

Hair and finger nails growing really fast aren't a bad thing- if you have always had this. Is this a new developement?

Re: Hair grows too fast!

Yes, this is a new development. My hair used to grow really slowly, and the past few months or so, my hair has grown so fast! I haven't done anything to make it change... hmmm

Re: Hair grows too fast!

How old are you? Could it be a result of hormonal changes? Also, you said you recently got your hair cut- are you styling it differently?

Re: Hair grows too fast!

I'm 18 years old... I don't think I've undergone any hormonal changes... And i'm not styling my hair any differently. . . Everything is the same as it was before, except for my fast hair growth!

Re: Hair grows too fast!

Sorry, dear. I'm at a loss. I guess my only further advice would be to talk to your dr. next time you go. Actually, you could call your beautician also. They learn about illnesses that cause hair problems in school. I wouldn't use that as a defenative answer but it might give you some direction.

Re: Hair grows too fast!

It's not that bad of a thing if you don't color your hair... that would really stink.

Re: Hair grows too fast!

Ummm..if you find out what caused it could you please let us know? I'm trying to grow my short cut out. Have you introduced anything new to your diet? Stopped or started any meds? Moved to a warmer climate? Been less stressed? It's generally a good sign when hair grows fast, as far as I know.

Re: Hair grows too fast!

Hair and nails growing too fast could be an overactive thyroid, also with hair failing out. You should ask your doctor to do a TSH to see if your thyroid could be overactive.

Hey i wish my hair would grow that fast. I had all mine cut off short and hate it, but now it's taking forever to grow.
