Question

I was wondering how fast pubes grow when you are developing. I don't know if it is because I am concentrating on it that it seems to grow fast. I see little thin hairs and the next week it seems to have grown a lot and it keeps spreading in like 5 days or a week. Does it grow that fast or is it because I am focusing on it too much?


Answer

There are two things that people notice when it comes to hair growth: the quantity of hair and the length of the hairs. Hair grows at a rate of about 1/2 inch per month. Several really long hairs can make it seem there is more there than what actually exists. However, hair follicles can change from vellus to terminal in large patches.
