    Hi zangrymango!

    I don’t think girls hair grows longer than boys.

    I’m not sure, but I think hair grows at roughly the same rate for girls and boys? Boys hair is often shorter than girls, so small changes in length might be more obvious?

    Apparently the average rate is 1.25cm per month, or 0.4mm per day.

    They grow at the same rate, but boys tend to have shorter hair cuts and have their hair cut more often!
