Wasn't sure how fast your hair grew?

Some of us women never can really tell how fast our hair does grow. The average is an inch in a month or a little over a month. Anything I can take to help it grow more?? Does it work??

The speed of hair growth is roughly 1.25 centimeters or 0.5 inches per month, being about 15 centimeters or 6 inches per year. With age the speed of hairgrowth might slow down to as little as 0.25 cm or 0.1 inch a month.

Taking my prenatal vitamins I noticed my hair grow a lot faster, and it looked healther. I am breastfeeding so I still take my vitamins and every 2 months I get my hair trimmed and it's usually grown about 3 inches.
Hair is made up of protein, so eat foods which contain plenty of protein like fish, eggs, liver, milk products, yeast, wheat germ, sprouts, beans, nuts and yoghurt.
Drink plenty of water and sleep for 8 - 9 hours a day, since hair grows when a person is resting. Exercising daily will also improve the blood circulation and help your hair grow quickly. Hair grows faster when there is less stress.
