You made the leap and got bangs, but you have cut it too short. Panic sets in, and you hop on Google to ask: “how fast do bangs grow in a week?”

Naturally, dozens of responses provide different answers, and you probably see ads for miracle hair growth treatments. How do you know which one is the truth?

We’ve got you covered with the real answer and some honest tips for growing your bangs out after you have cut it too short. 

How Much Do Bangs Grow In A Week?

Expect your bangs to grow approximately 0.15 to 0.2 inches (about 4 to 5 millimeters) per week. The exact rate of growth will vary depending on your individual genetics and hair type.

Since bangs frame your face, the minimal growth might be more noticeable. But if you have thick or curly hair the growth will be less noticeable.

Based on the average weekly growth, expect your bangs to grow around a 0.25 to 0.4 inches (about 6 to 10 millimeters) in two weeks and 1 to 2 cm in a month.

So it will take at least 1.5 to 2 months to grow your bangs 1 inch. If you have cut your bangs too short it will take around 2 months to cover your forehead.

Your bangs will take about 7 months to grow back till the end of your nose and 10 months to reach chin length considering the average hair growth rate of 1.8 cm per month, average hairline to nose length of 12 cm, and average hairline to chin length of 17.2 cm.

What Affects Bangs Growth?

factors affecting bangs growth

Several factors can impact how fast your bangs grow out, including the time of year. It’s true, hair grows faster during the summer than in the winter!

  • Gender: Men tend to grow hair faster than women.
  • Age: Your hair grows faster during the teen and early adult years, but growth slows after age 30 when the follicles cease to work as well. It’s also why people notice thinning hair and balding with age.
  • Hormones: Some hormones affect hair growth, like testosterone, and high levels can make hair grow faster. Similarly, dysfunction in certain glands can impact hair growth.
  • Genetics: Your genes hold the secret to your hair’s texture, color, density, and even how fast it grows. Some people are simply predisposed to grow hair faster than others.
  • Health and Nutrition: Chronic health conditions and insufficient nutrition can slow hair growth. Some medications used to treat health conditions can affect your hair health. 
  • Styling Habits: Styling your hair too tightly, using too much heat, and overusing products can damage your hair and slow down growth. 

How To Make Your Fringe Grow In Two Weeks

To encourage faster growth of your fringe (or bangs) in two weeks, you have to speed up the hair growth. A few tricks and changes to your routine might make your bangs grow back quickly.

Nourish and Moisturize

Keeping your bangs nourished and moisturized is your best chance to improve growth. Try hair treatments, like a hydrating mask, to strengthen your hair and reduce the chance of breakage. 

Regularly massaging your scalp can stimulate blood flow to the hair follicles, potentially speeding up growth. Use your fingertips to gently massage your scalp for a few minutes each day.

Use gentle, sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners. Avoid over-washing your hair to prevent stripping it of natural oils.

Trim Strategically

It seems ridiculous that cutting your bangs could help them grow, but think of it as reverse psychology for the strands.

Trimming along the center, around your eyebrows, with thinning shears is an excellent way to add texture and improve the shape while encouraging growth.

Hair Supplements

Consider taking supplements that promote hair growth, such as biotin, vitamin E, and omega-3 fatty acids.

You can also take hair growth supplements like Folexin, Nutrafol or Viviscal to improve your hair growth rate.

Eat Right

Taking vitamins and eating nutrient-rich foods can support healthy hair and speed up growth.

Vitamin B and E, lysine, and biotin can all help hair health. Greens, bananas, brown rice, and nuts all contain nutrients that can help your hair as well.

Change the Style

So, maybe the bangs don’t look quite right on you. That doesn’t mean you don’t have options to make things work better while your hair grows out. 

  • Grab the pins and clips and work some creative magic. You can hold the awkward lengths in place and drum up some unique styles that won’t damage your follicles or inhibit growth.
  • Try having layers cut in that help the bangs blend in so it’s not so severe and encourages more even growth. This strategy works well for people whose hair grows slower.
  • Slick the bangs back with hair products. Make sure you don’t use anything damaging or harsh on your follicles.

Wrap Up

Bangs grow up to 3 to 5 millimeters in a week. You might notice a little more or less depending on your hair and how you handle it. 

There are a few things you can do to support healthier hair and encourage growth, like extra scalp care and eating a nutrient-rich diet.

However, it will likely take three to ten months to grow your bangs out completely. You can follow the tips and tricks mentioned in this article to make your fringe grow faster.
