wow that was fast. my one year anniversary creeped up on me, and i didn't even know it! it was actually a month ago. i only have 9 months of progress pictures however. here's where i started:

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2300141735456&set=a.2300137295345.2118331.1006533611&type=3&theater

(sorry if the link doesn't work) it's kinda dark, but my hair was at collarbone length, and it was mostly my natural color. it was near halloween, thus the batgirl costume.

this is where i am as of this morning!

my hair looks pretty straight today since i used a super cone-ified deep conditioner. i've gained about 9 inches, since i trimmed off a little and the waves make it kinda hard to measure. my original goal was bsl, which is about three or four inches away now. my new goal is to the bottom of the circle in the last picture, so lower back/ waist? probably a good six or seven inches away. sorry for the flashy post. i wanna send a super thank you to everyone who's helped me get this far! :toast: and happy growing to the rest of you! :grouphug:

Oooh you're so lucky! I should've joined earlier, since my one year of growing was a few weeks ago, and after everything i've done, I've just barely gotten two inches longer

thank you! i did use a semi permanent red on my hair two months ago on the second picture, so that's why it looks a different color. the new challenge is growing out the virgin regrowth :D

thanks!
and... i still consider myself a newbie! :lol:
sooo many things have helped me! definitely pulling your hair up to prevent tangles, combing instead of brushing, and loading moisture into the hair. the past month or so i've been trying to up my protein intake, since normally i don't get much.
and extremely limiting heat styling! personally it wasn't that hard because i'm so lazy haha.
in the words of my 10th grade english teacher,
"patience is a great virtue"
