    Default Does Anyones Hair Grow in Layers?

    My hair grows in layers. Anyone else? Sometimes Its quite annoying, because its hard to achieve a certain hair length if your hair grows in layers. My hair has ALWAYS grown in layers, thats how it grows. I find it somewhat cool though in a way. But how do you go a bout achieving a certain length?

    Thanks

    That's pretty normal IME. In order for your hair to grow so that it appears to be all one length, the top would have to grow much faster (2 or 3x, at least, depending on the size of your head) than the bottom half. Most people's hair grows at more or less the same rate throughout their heads, though, so the hair shows up in layers.

    How long is your hair now? I think that the easiest way to get it all one length is to cut into a bob type hairstyle and keep that shape until all the layers catch up. Once this happens you can let it grow if you want. The bottom layers will always be shorter than the top even as it grows.

    I don't have any intentions on cutting my hair anymore. Even when I BCed my hair still grew in layers. Well the back is nearing APL. Front at my collar bone.

    I was thinking of cutting my hair like Kelis had it at first. The front was heavier and longer than the back. But I decided against it for now.

    everyone's hair does because your head is not 1 level, so the nape of your neck is lower than the top of your head. 6 inches of length at each location would mean that they hang at different spots = layers

    Not all your hair grows at the same rate all over the head. In my case, the ones at the back of my head grow faster then the ones at the top. That's another reason for it to grow in layers.

    My hair grows in layers too. The sides grow fastest, then the top and then the back.

    My sides also grow fastest. It's awkward looking when my hair is still kind of short (looking like Krusty the Clown and what not) but once it starts getting longer it's not noticeable and it all looks one length all around.

    i'm pretty sure everyone hair grows like that, you can get it trimmed/shaped to appear even but I don't think it's worth it.

    Yea, I don't think its worth it either. My back has always grown faster than the front. It will always be that way. In this case, acceptance is key. I just wanted to make sure I would be able to measure the length of my hair properly. For example, if I made it to WL hair, but only the back is WL and the fron tis MBL. Can I just say I am WL lol?
