nanoseconds. it grows from the time you're born til the time you die.

However...the rate at which it grows depends on the person, and I *think, your age.

For instance, my hair has grown nine inches over the last 1-1/2 years, so about 6 inches per year.  But I'm 50 years old. When I was younger, although I could be mistaken, I think it grew faster.
Yup.  Genetics, health, diet, sex, age, hormones, etc. all affect how quickly hair grows.

I grew my hair out to my waist from when it was REALLY short, and it took about 3 years.  Chopped it off, have it in an envelope, might make something disturbing out of it.
 
All humor aside (can't seem to pull any out of my hat right now), with that long a piece, have you considered donating it to one of those cancer survivor's programs?

(you could alwayss make hair jewelry for your loved ones for Christmas...now wouldn't that be ghastly in the modern age...?)
I have enough dry humor for the both of us.

Honestly, I just don't trust Locks of Love anymore.  I've thought about selling it since it's a rare hair color (strawberry blond), but meh...  that would require work.  So instead I'm going to do something horrible with it or make a wig out of it for when my hair turns white and starts falling out.
 
Wel, I'm glad you have me covered on that count. Phew..I was worried for a minute there. ;-)

As for Lock of love, what's the issue? I was actually considering it for when I finally get into a chopshop to sheer the sheep, so the speak. (assault-->back injury --> not grooming properly --> hair --> more hair --> repeat and rinse)
Read the Criticisms and Accountability Standards on the Wikipedia entry.  It explains it.  I don't know how true it all is anymore, but I just don't think I could trust them anymore.  You can also run a google search on it being a "scam", and you can also run a news search on the organization.  Again, I have no idea what's true and what isn't and can't verify one way or another.  You should also check the FAQ section on the Locks of Love website.
 
ok, nuff said. I figured that might be your opposition. I have my own about quite a few charities. (My first taste was watching the Lotto get installed here in Ohio several years back. We had a business office nearby, and I immediately noticed that in contrary to the main voting push about schools getting increased funding, their parking lot was always filled up to the brim with upper end cars less than two years old...Since then I've been a bit more skeptical about who gets my cash.

However...

Even though I've been erm..."tight" for the last two years, I still find myself trying to drop something in the bucket almost every time I walk by a Salvation Army station during Christmas time, even if it's just a few dimes or a dollar or  two. I refuse to believe the hype on them no matter what I hear or read..I just have to hold out some hope in good works. lol, theyprolly get me for a hundred bucks even now...one's right outside the grocery store door.

I may still do it in the hope that they can justify the extra loot, but idk. There are others aren't there? (rhetorical..I'll look around)
I was a case manager working with evacuees from natural disasters for a short period of time, and the Salvation Army did a lot to help as did Catholic Charities, Lutheran Social Services, Child Inc (local nonprofit), Any Baby Can (local nonprofit), individual churches, private donors, Red Cross, and many many others that aren't leaping to mind right now.  A lot of nonprofits offer the option of donations going to a particular program that they offer, so if you disagree with what a nonprofit does in one program but still like other programs they offer, you can usually donate to the program(s) that you do like.  I can't think of a non-profit that isn't suffering during this financial crunch.  I personally might not like everything that a particular nonprofit does, but it would be a bit foolish to ignore the good stuff that they do even Locks of Love because they aren't all bad.  Nonprofits have expenses just like any business, and they have to make ends meet.  Wigs made of real human hair are very, very expensive, so selling them at a reduced cost is still something.
 
True that.

My hippy brother grew about 6 inches in a year. But that's for a guy.
Hair grows 1-2 cm per month, or about 0.5 to 1 inches per month (http://www.hairscientists.org/hair.htm).  Hair rate varies with all sorts of factors, including the season.  It grows more in winter and falls out more in summer (http://www.hairinformation.com/hair-growth/hair-re-growth.shtml)
