View Full Version : WOOT! I'm only about an inch (a good inch) from BSL!

Soooooooo close.

Another inch, maybe an inch and a half - and I'll be at BSL! :cheese:

I have no idea what caused the growth explosion my hair experienced in the past 7 weeks... only that it's taken off like a rocket, suddenly. I haven't done anything differently, nor have I changed product(s) or routines. I haven't even changed shampoo/condish bottles - so it can't be a batch or manufacturer recipe change...

Because I have Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, it usually takes two months to achieve a quarter inch or so worth of growth. In the past 7 weeks or so, however, my hair has grown half an inch... maybe a bit more. I have to wait for hubby to come home to measure it for me. But I can clearly see the dark black-brown root line of new growth versus my lighter/redder color rinsed hair length: It's easily half an inch. I last visited my hairdresser for a color rinse nearly eight weeks ago. :cheese:

Congratulations! What a pleasant surprise! BSL is my next goal, too. I hope your increased growth rate continues! :)

All I can think you did differently was wearing that wig for Hallowe'en then! Maybe it was warm under there and stimulated some growth :silly:

Where else would people be so happy their roots were showing?

how exciting... straightened (which I dont do often) my hair is also only about an inch or so from BSL, but darn these waves and curls, and shrinkage!!!!

Congrats! That's fantastic! If it keeps growing that fast you might be there by New Year's!

Way to go! It looks like you will ring in the new year with BSL hair. :)

Good for you, StephanieB! I hope it keeps up at this rate, that would be awesome for you!

Ooh, that's great! Good for you. :) I'm impatiently waiting for mine to get to BSL at the moment- it's currently around APL and I have lots of pesky layers that I'm trying to grow out, so it usually looks even shorter than that.

Yay! It's just about milestone time then! You can't beat growth, especially when it's enough to be called an explosion! :D

Congrats! Keep up the patient work!

Contests! Bs length is an easy length to work with.
