    I am curious to know if it does. I wax my pubic hairs so it will be an easy way to know my actual growth rate and figure out how much I am retaining.

    My last wax appointment was June 9 (don't judge!) and I measured my pubic hairs :)look:) last night and it was 1.15 inches. If this is the same growth rate for my hair, it would be consistent with the average and also mean I am retaining about 75-80%. I am okay with retention rate, I just want to know for sure.

    I dont know if they have the same growth rate, but I sure do know my pubes have better retention. And its not like I be wearing silk panties or anything so I dont understand at all. :look:

    No, those pubes get no moisturization, no trims, no DC'in, ain't nobody henna-ing and that isht just keeps on keeping on
    :lachen:
    The growth rate is faster I think, but the growth span is very short.

    OT: When I was a kid, I used to put conditioner on my pubes, cause I thought they were too rough. Don't ask me why I thought they needed to be silky soft... :look::lachen:

    I usually save this idiocy for the Off Topic threads...

    No, pubic hair grows faster in order to protect that area of your body. Think about your underarms... that hair grows significantly faster than the hair on your head. It is a different type of hair and follicle with a shorter growth cycle.

    If my head hair grew at the same rate as my pubes, I'd have toenail length hair by now.

    NappyNelle is right; you are comparing apples to oranges. Your pubic hair is on an entirely different (i.e., much shorter) growth cycle than the hair on your scalp, because it is serving a different purpose than the hair on your head. If you never shaved/trimmed/waxed that part of your body, the hair would never get longer than 1 or 2 inched before it stopped growing and shed, therefore you cannot compare it's growth rate to the hair on your scalp, which is programmed to have a much longer growth cycle. Same thing with your eyebrows/eyelashes/hair on legs/etc. Even though it's the same stuff (and may even be the same texture) It is programmed to grow differently depending on where it is on your body. That is why (among other things) doctors don't use hair follicles from other parts of your body like your pubes for hair transplants; the hair would not behave like scalp hair and would not produce a desirable effect, to say the least. :yep:

    I think pubic hairs have a fast growth rate but a much shorter terminal length, like eyebrows.

    It does not grow the same speed trust me if my hair grew like my pubes I might be WL already, I also put conditioner on my pubes for softness, it was a sensual reason though lol.

    I also tried flatironing it to see how long it was......that was a waste of heat it didnt get straight at all

    Thank you all for an informative and hilarious thread.

    I guess I need to figure out how to measure growth on my scalp. I thought I had found an easy way. Now I know they are useless (to me anyway), I don't feel bad they are off to waxing heaven on Monday.

    "mmhmm yeah gurl I shampoo once a week with Selsun Blue to get rid of the dandruff and DC with Vo5 Moisture Milks to put some moisture in the 'scalp' and I do Search and Destroys on my splits and ssks bi weekly..."
