Here Is Why Your Pubic Hair Grows So Damn Fast

Compared to the hair on the scalp, the pubic hair grows quite damn fast, after a shave, one week later it seems that your testosterone is at its peak and you find yourself growing a forest down there. 

If you are wondering why your pubic hair grows much faster than the rest of your hair. The simple truth is that it doesn't. 

According to Alexes Hazen, M.D., a reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgeon at NYU Langone Health, 

We simply notice hair growth most, and the speed of that growth, the shorter the hair.

Which means that your pubic hair is quite shorter than that on your head which makes it grow much faster.

Because your pubic hair is much shorter on the inside so it seems to grow much faster on the outside. While the hair on your head is much longer than your pubic hair on the inside and on the outside. So while you might think you pubic has grown much longer than that on your head, it isn't true because a great length of your hair is just within the scalp before growing out. 

All hair, regardless of its locations, follows a three-stage cycle: growth, stagnation, and falling out. Part of the perception that your pubic hair grows much faster than the hair on your head may be due to the growth cycle it follows.

With pubic hair—and other body hair—the entire process takes about 30 to 44 days, Dr. Hazen says. That means the same pubes that started to grow will shed in about a month to a month and a half.  

The hair on your head follows a much more spread out process. In fact, it can keep growing for up to six years before it falls out. As a result, the hair on your head grows too much longer lengths than your pubes can ever reach.

However, other factors can influence the growth of hair such as usage of medications and your hormones. 

Hormones like testosterone and dihydrotestosterone play a huge part in male hair growth and lower amounts of these hormones result in hair loss (baldness).

So there you have it.
