    Default I worked out my hair growth speed

    I looked at past photos and put them in date order, ranging from 2010 to now and was able to calculate an average growth of between a quarter inch to a third inch per month. That is through a few hair dyes, but no trimming. I think that is painfully slow, but at least it grows. as I said before somewhere else, I haven't seen much growth over the last few months, but at a quarter inch, with wavy hair, that is hard to pick up on.
    I only use organic ingredients on my hair.

    I've done the same before - I also worked mine out to be slower than average, but I appreciated seeing that it was actually growing. I'm never conscious of hair getting longer, but trust me, it is all the time

    Let go, or be dragged.

    Don’t feel like it’s too bad, my hair grows a little under half an inch per month. In 17 months it has grown 8.5 inches which is right on half, but some months I didn’t actually get anywhere, length wise and other months (after I fell pregnant) I sort of ‘caught up’.
    Someone on here said something lovely and it has stuck with me - they said to make the most of your hair right now because it will never be this short again! It’s a nice way to think about it. Make the most of some updos which people with super long hair can’t quite do anymore, make the most of a shorter drying time etc.
