Sometimes it seems like everyone is dissatisfied with the hair that they have. It's too short, too long, too damaged, too curly, not curly enough, too thick, too thin, the list goes on and on. You want what you don't (or can't) have. And while, sure, some people might think that their hair grows too quickly, the more common complaint is that their hair grows too slowly. But what you might not realize, if you're one of those who complains about hair growing slowly, is that there are some surprising health conditions you could have if your hair grows slowly. Though it might just be the way that your hair growth cycle is, slow hair growth could result from a number of conditions and situations ranging from changes in hormones to genetics and beyond.
Since you might not even notice that your hair has grown until it's quite a bit longer than it used to be, it can sometimes be difficult to tell, at least at first, if your hair growth has really slowed or not. Still, it's important to know that slower hair growth could be linked to your physical health because once you do notice that it's happening, you may want to make sure you check in with your doctor, in case there's something that needs to be addressed medically.
