First, I want to say thank you to all of you! I have "grown" so much in this last year, and not just my hair, LOL! I love the community we have here and am so thankful for the diversity that this group offers. You are all an inspiration for hair and so much more! :blossom:

Now, the pics!

These are of me when I first cut my hair (not the best quality pics, sorry)...

Biotin, horsetail tea, and lots of buns, LOL! That's really it! Thanks for the kind words!

Thanks to all! I am so thankful to be a part of such an encouraging group!

To all who mentioned my fast growth:
I measured 9" of growth this year! I started on October 8, 2007 with 14" and today I am a solid 23"! I did not think it was possible! I wonder if that will slow down some now that I'm not a shortie any more. I have noticed a slight stall, but I figure it will pass.


Happy Anniversary.

Your hair looks so lovely and very soft looking.
What products do you use?

Also your natural color is very pretty.

Thanks! I CWC every 3-4 days with Suave conditioner (apple) and Aubrey Organics blue chamomile shampoo. I use 3-4 drops of sweet almond oil on wash days and 2 drops every other day after, mostly on the ends. That's it!

Your Welcome!!

Thank you for your advice.

May I ask how much biotin a day and where might I find Horsetail tea?

thank you

Your Welcome!!

thank you

I take 5 MCG 2 times daily, so 10 MCG per day. The horsetail tea I buy loose in the tea section of the nearest organic foods market we have (ours is Earth Fare, but there are many different chains and individual stores that would carry it). I get it loose and because it is virtually flavorless, I usually mix it with some other tea that is tasty such as chamomile, peppermint, or some blend of a bunch of whatever. Just as long as I like it, LOL! I mix 1 tsp of the horsetail leaves with 1/2 - 1 tsp of whatever other tea I am using and steep it in a french press style steeper for about 4-6 minutes. Once the tea is steeped, I drink it and usually you can get 2 cups out of it. HTH!

Thanks! The 4th pic down is my natural wave, the rest are either braid or bun waves.

Gorgeous!! Isn't Biotin wonderful? I have found that Centrum Liquid has 100% of the daily recommended amount and my body uses it better than tablets.
