    Default Hair growth progress pictures!

    Hey all! I joined this forum in August, but I have been trying to track the growth of my hair since earlier in the summer. The first picture is middle of June. Oh and the pictures are clickable for a bigger view!



    the second picture is from today! I didn't realize it, but I have definitely had some growth. My hair is thick, but my ends are getting thin I know - I have so many layers from a previous hair cut. The shortest layers are barely shoulder and the longest are just hitting waist. I had a trim last January and I'm trying to make it until January 2012 to get another one and even things back out. Hopefully my ends will be at a solid waist by Christmas before I trim them back a smidge Anyway, this is my hair today, at its most natural. I had washed it for the first time in almost a week with a SLS shampoo and a coney conditioner and then let it air dry completely with no products.



    Also, I have my hair typed as a 3a, but after seeing some of the other 3a's here, I'm not so sure. Opinions are appreciated And thank you guys for all of the great advice! Since I've joined here I've stopped coloring my hair, stopped with the hot tools, and have started using coconut oil. I'm not sure if you can tell by the second picture, but I have a bit of fuzz (new growth ) around the top of my head! I can tell a huge difference in my hair since I put down all the chemicals and hot things, so thank you all!!!

    Impressive growth. Good for you! You're definitely gaining thickness.

    Our hair is very similar (sorry I don't have any pictures). Do you find that it's easy to comb out your hair into waves, or during a certain day in your routine it curls more/less? I typed myself at 2c/3a just because my hair can turn more wavy (instead of being super curly) when I haven't washed for a bit.

    And gorgeous progress!

    I do see a little growth but your head position is different in the first photo its more dipped so it makes your hair look shorter.

    Really beautiful colour and curls though!

    Your hair looks amazing. I'd say you are more of a 2c/3a, because, I think the top of your hair is wavy rather than curly...It looks alot like mine. My hair, when brushed out, turns into long, soft waves with a few ringlets on the ends...
