Fact or Fiction?

As with other myths of hair growth, there are questions about what products can really grow hair. On average, hair growth is about a quarter of an inch to half an inch every month. While science has made huge technological advances that do help promote hair growth, myths of hair growth and old wives’ methods such as scalp massage, hanging upside down, rubbing magic elixirs into your scalp and getting it cut when the moon is waxing have not been scientifically proven to grow hair faster.

Verdict: Fact
