Things You Need to Know About Bang Growth

While bangs may take a lot of time to grow, the process doesn’t have to be frustrating. There are some tips and tricks you can use throughout the growth process to ensure you are happy and satisfied with your style and the growth progress of your hair.

To understand the best way to grow your bangs faster and healthier, it is important to have a timeline and expectations at each growth stage.

First Few Weeks

This is the hardest stage of growing your bangs. Your fringe will be a bit longer and will enter your eyes whenever you try to see something or move around.

It would be best if you don’t cut your bangs off at this stage until you reach the next level. Use accessories or headbands to deal with them.

One to Two Months 

By the time your bangs reach this stage, they should have increased in length because it is about halfway through the growing process.

While this is the most confusing stage of bang growth, it is also the stage where you can start training your bangs the way you want them to grow and experimenting with different hairstyles on your bangs. Go with curtain bangs, wispy bangs, shaggy bangs, the sky’s the limit!

Two to Three Months 

At this stage, your bangs will have grown much longer to the extent of falling around the face. They most likely will have reached chin-length by this point.

Curls and layers are perfect styles to try out at this stage because your long bangs will be blended well into the rest of your hair.

Braids can also help clear those stubborn bangs out of your way.

Four Months Onwards

At four months, the length of your bangs will be equal to the length of the rest of your hair. This, however, is dependent on the length of your hair.

Your bangs will no longer fall out of place or appear separate from your hair. At this point, you can now celebrate the growth of your bangs and enjoy your new look and style.

Can You Speed up Bang Growth?

If you feel like your bangs are stagnant or are growing out too slow, you can speed up their growth by improving the general health of your hair. However, you should keep in mind that these tips will not obviously work overnight and will only be effective over time. 

Diet and Supplements

To improve your hair’s health, you must be mindful of your diet. Foods rich in vitamins, omega, and fatty acids are good.

They can help speed up your hair growth, soften their texture, and make them look fuller over time. You could also take supplements like fish oil or biotin supplements to get the same effect.


Regular hair conditioning softens the hair, preventing breakage and split ends. Your bangs will likely grow out faster by keeping your hair conditioned and moisturized.

You can either buy a conditioner or use your home remedy conditioning recipe. 

Avoid using too many conditioners to defend against product build-up. Build-up may block your hair pores, preventing hair follicles from popping out. Conditioning your hair a few times per month is just enough. 

Scalp Massages

Scalp massages are not only relaxing; regular scalp massages help improve blood circulation in your scalp, stimulating rapid hair growth. Scalp massages can also help remove clogged hair products on your scalp and dandruff, leaving your hair fresh and aerated. 


Growing out your bangs faster can be frustrating,  but don’t stress. You won’t be stuck with the bangs you dislike forever!

In general, bangs take three to four months to grow out. With patience, proper hair care, the right hair products, and hair accessories, you’ll be able to smoothly grow out your bangs faster to achieve your desired look.
