My hair stopped growing after I cut it. Is it normal? Will it grow back like it used to?

  • First, hair doesn’t stop growing after you cut it. In turn, the growth may slow down.
  • Second, you should identify different situations, such as weak growth, slow growth, and even hair loss.
  • Therefore, before you despair, I advise you to go to a dermatologist. Today, I’ll show you what you should take into account to ask her/him.

Let me ask you something. Why do you think stylists recommend trimming hair every two or three months?

It’s not because we want to leave our clients bald little by little, is it?


 We recommend frequent trims for hair to grow stronger and more vigorous. 

If your hair is strong and more vigorous, it’s healthy, growing hair.


However, the hair is part of the amazing gear that is the human body. Therefore, like every part of our body, it’s not oblivious to what happens to us.

We live in difficult times. We work more and more to have less sometimes. That situation leads us to give up moments of leisure, with our friends, and even moments with ourselves. Running against the clock damages us.


  • Maybe you don’t sleep well or have trouble falling asleep.
  • Alternatively, you may feel a tightness in your chest and anguish.
  • You may even start to feel muscle or joint pain.
  •  Or maybe you BELIEVE your hair is growing less, or not at all. And that just coincides with the haircut you recently got. 


Yes, your hair also suffers from external factors such as stress, worries, tension, or even hormonal changes.

However, I can guarantee you this: in my years of professional experience, I never had a case where hair stopped growing because I cut it.

On the contrary, most people seek to cut it to give it more strength and vigor.


 The first and most important thing is to visit a health professional   such as a dermatologist specialized in the scalp. The idea is to get a specific treatment and solve the problem of slow or weak hair growth.

Ultimately, in the worst-case scenario, your hair will grow weaker and more slowly.


So, your whole problem boils down to:

  • diagnosis
  • analysis of the causes
  • and solutions

Do you feel better?


Of course, you do!

If you want even more peace of mind, go to a dermatologist with your homework done.

If your hair doesn’t grow after trimming it, I recommend you see a dermatologist. However, first, you need to evaluate your hair.

How does a doctor make a diagnosis?


The first step is observation.

Any professional will start by observing to solve a problem.

A veterinarian observes the physical appearance of a dog before diagnosing it. An astronomer observes the stars to reach a verdict about new constellations. You should observe your hair before you think it won’t grow back by cutting it.


  • So, take a strand of hair and look at it closely.
  • Check if your hair is thinner. If it is,  try to identify if it happened gradually or suddenly. 
  • Take note of what you observe, as any scientist would.


  • Now it’s time to look at the scalp.
  • If you don’t have a magnifying mirror, ask your mother or a friend to do it for you.
  • Take note if it looks normal, overly sebaceous, or dry.


  • Finally, the ends of your hair.
  • Ideally, they should be closed. If you notice that your ends are split or dead, this can be the reason for slower hair growth. The hair loses nourishment through those split ends.
  • You should also note if only the ends are open or if the hair continues to open towards the roots.


Once the diagnosis has been made, it’s time to move on to the causes of the hair growth slowdown. Keep taking notes because they’ll be useful for your doctor.


After observing your hair, it’s time to analyze the causes of slow hair growth after cutting it

This is a broader area. The lack of growth or weak hair growth after a haircut can be due to multiple factors.




The grand jury has declared stress the reason for all our diseases with no chance of appeal.

Think about your daily routine. Do you often feel nervous? Anxiety? Some kind of phobia? Do you feel like you’re in “fighting mode” all the time?


Possibly, you’re stressed.

Stress can lead to scalp hardening, which will lead to thinning hair.  And that can lead you to think that your hair is growing less just when you first cut it. 


The good news is that you can overcome the stress. In addition to consulting a clinician, set yourself to enjoy a few moments of each day, even if you have to interrupt your daily routine.

If you work in a big city, escape to a park and have lunch there, in the middle of nature. Treat yourself to a spa at home once a week. Invite your best friend to share a coffee at a bar because you just miss her.


Once you get over the stress, your hair will start to grow normally. Also, you’ll have gained a lot of good times in your life.


Organic factors

These factors should be monitored by a clinician. For example, thyroid disorders have an impact on your hair. They leave it thin and prone to tangling.


Are you going through menopause? It could also affect hair growth.

Keep calm. Many treatments regulate these problems, and you can see the improvement in your hair almost immediately.


Eating factors

for naturally healthy hair

Bad eating habits or eating at odd hours will eventually influence weak or slow hair growth.

 Hair needs nutrients and vitamins to grow strong.  If you eat too much junk food or don’t eat enough vegetables, fruits, and fish, your hair will demand it by not growing normally.


Hereditary factors

Genetics is a world apart. Until recently, there wasn’t much you could do about family heredity. However, relax!


 There’re many hair regeneration treatments with successful results nowadays. 

They range from mesotherapy to hormones that will help your hair become strong and vigorous.


The same goes for age. No one can stop the biological clock. That’s why, at some point, hair follicles stop generating hair.

That’s part of the cycle of life, not because you cut your hair.


So far, you already have a lot of data for your dermatologist and you can regain your peace of mind. Now you know that almost all causes of slow hair growth have a solution.



Your hair won’t stop growing because of a haircut. In turn, after a haircut, you could notice that your hair doesn’t grow in the same way as before cutting. However, the cut will never be responsible for that problem.

If you lose sleep because you feel that your hair isn’t growing or is growing less than it should after a haircut, you should ask a dermatologist.

That will keep the ghosts away. If the professional decides that you should have a treatment to increase hair growth, you’ll be well on your way to achieving it.
