Growing Stage

Ok yet another question! How long is a hair in the actual growing stage? Is it true that once the hair reaches the skin surface it has actually passed the growing stage? The reason I ask …my facial hairs are fairly log (1cm in some places), does this mean that longer hairs are in the growing stage longer than a shorter one? Thank You!

Hair does continue to grow after it reaches the surface. If not then people like Cher and her famous hair dresser (whose hair was even longer than her famous client) could not grow hair longer than their actual bodies. Some people like cher can have growth phases that last phenominally long times. Most of us mortals have to make due with less than 30 days.
