    When you are away for a longish trip in your van do you find that your hair and nails seem to grow quicker..................or is this something peculiar to us Deb'n folk????

    LOL. I don't know if they do, but it sure seems that way. I think it is because the last thing on my mind when away is having my roots done but they seem to appear as if by magic over night.. but then it could be the fresh air I guess .. I always say that most professional golfers have lovely heads of hair. :)

    Not so sure about hair, :) but whenever we are away anywhere warmer that West Wales (most everywhere), finger and toenail's do grow much faster.

    Hair especially grows quicker when away. Also the grey bits grows quicker all the time.

    We've noticed this too, especially fingernails. We've always put it down to warmth and sun.

    It's about climate. Nails and hair may grow marginally faster in a warm climate because circulation is better.

    LOL I actually had a Podiatry apt yesterday and yes - I know full well they cut your nails a lot shorter than I can - or actually want to - but she said that 8 weeks between cuts is 'average'.

    How come I have to do mine every flippin week then, anyway? Always have had to!

    And in truth my hair needs a re-trim every 6 weeks, but I do leave it longer cos it gets a bit expensive otherwise. Used to when I was at work, in a Client facing role.

    We had a month in Spain in Jan/Feb this year my hair and nails grew much faster than normal, I thought I was changing sex!, glad I'm not the only one.
    My weight also increased by 2KG, but it could have been all the Tapas and beers!

    It's quite possible your nails do grow faster when you are away. A high protein diet and exercise increase growth rate. Sex also plays a role but probably not in that sense :) but the time of year (season) is a known factor. It is also possible (and here I'm speculating) someone who spends the winter in the sun will find their nails will grow faster than if they stayed in the smog of Blighty. It will need a long term trial to test this hypothesis. I volunteer for the winter in the sun side of the trial. Draw straws for who stays here! :D
