You can grow 11 miles of hair in a year. 

If you took every strand on your head—all 100,000 to 150,000 of them—and laid them end to end, after a year of growth you’d have anywhere from 7 to 11 miles of hair on your, er, hands. While each strand’s average output is roughly a centimeter per month, its lifespan is only about four years, which explains why most manes don’t fall longer than mid-back. But you can maximize growing potential. “Eating a healthy diet that’s rich in protein and iron is a good way of maintaining hair health,” says Dr. Paradi Mirmirani, a dermatologist in Vallejo, California, who specializes in hair disorders. In that case, we’re throwing another steak on the grill.
