So, I have been re-growing my hair for 18 months now and thought I would post progress pics. I took a break from LHC and ended up cutting my hair to about shoulder length after a very stressful period in my life. I realized I missed the long hair and the process of taking care of it and growing it so I re-commited myself and here I am. I have gone from 24.5 inches to 31 inches and really improved the condition. I have some layers that I am eventually planning to trim out but I am not ready to do that yet! Anywho....here are the pics.

January 2009 - 24.5 inches

May 2009 - around 26 inches with new bangs and layers (lesson learned)

January 2010 - 30 inches

And finally June 2010 - 31 inches ( a few trims along the way to even out ends and get rid of splits)

Hope you enjoyed the pics as much as I've enjoyed looking back at my progress:)

Your hair seems to grow very fast. Do you know what your monthly growth rate is? Looks like it's around an inch to me. Your hair is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for all the wonderful encouraging comments. Some days I feel like it is not growing and I can look back over these pics and realize it is;)

i think my growth rate averages about 0.5 inces a month. It has taken me 18 months to get 6.5 inches of growth with two real trims. Some months it does seem to grow a little faster but I haven't changes anything...?

Thanks again!
