Apologies if there is a thread already, I've been looking but couldn't find exactly what I'm after!

I feel like I'm having a stunted growth period at the moment, and I want to see peoples albums that show growth from about shoulder to waist, with a similar hair type to me to prove it will grow if I leave it!

Currently I'm almost brushing the top of some of my bra straps, I hope to be at the bottom of it by Christmas, and I just can't imagine my hair ever being much longer than that (though I want it!)

It will grow right? :confused:

I'm in the same boat as you...I have such a difficult time truly believing that my hair will get longer, especially after having nearly a month go by that I've been taking care of it and still seeing little to no growth! It's so frustrating. I just have to remember to be patient, but it's difficult!

3 years and that is with me cutting it back up above BSL from Waist several times to get rid of the old dye damage (until in 2010 when I decided no more trims until TBL).

I would love to see some growth pictures, too! I have had stops and starts on my journey, so I don't have much to show at all (I'm only at 18.5 inches right now)...but I happen to have a before cut, after cut, and after a few months' growth progression photo. Let's see if I can post it here.

It has only been a few weeks since the last photo was taken and I already feel like it has grown more. I had the mullet trimmed back in September but it has returned full-force and with a vengeance, lol.

I started actively growing out my hair from a super short bob on my own last year before I ever heard of LHC. I don't have any length shots taken from the back from when it was super short.
On average my hair grows probably about an inch a month. I didn't cut at all until it hit about APL. Then I started cutting my own hair. I think this is over 1 year's worth of growth with trims. The longer it got the more frequently I trimmed. At the moment I trim off all new growth every month to thicken up the ends. Then we'll see maybe I'll try for waist and then hip or stay at MBL.

ssjhotau2 and owlathena, I can't see your pictures. But maybe that's because I am a newbie here. :o)

It seems to show in the pictures that it's growing but I want it so badly to be at waist length as soon as possible and it just seems to be taking forever haha

Ok I have no idea how to add pictures. I thought I had it but I obviously don't. Does anyone know how to add pictures?

I feel like im in a stall too. But my hair tends to have growth spurts, then stop, then grow again, like when i say grow again, i get 1" or more in a month. Strange but, you have to just be patient.

Wow thanks ladies for the photos! It's nice to see the progress and how long it took. I'm not really sure how fast mine is growing at the moment, it never really grew quicky, but I've had 3.5 inches of roots since I last dyed in March, which I suppose is about average.

I'm back on the rooibos now, hopefully that will give me a boost :)

Yes, ma'am. Honestly I don't have a secret. I honestly think my hair just hit a growth spurt because now the growth is slllooowww...... Though I did have a major trim, that was April when the picture was taken and I believe I had about 3" to 4" cut off. My future mother in law say's my hair grows extremely fast.
