    Default curious if I am making good progress

    I started growing my hair out Aug 13th. My hair has grown 2 inches since then. My bangs were at about my eyebrows, now they are at the tip of my nose. Is this good progress?

    I would say so, yes. Average growth is about 1/2" a month so it sounds like you're above average.

    I think that sounds like consistent steady progress and totally normal/average. Way to grow

    Two inches since August sounds about right for growth expectations since the average head grows one half inch of hair per month. Congrats on your progress!!

    I think you have made briiliant progress, 2" in 3 months is above average growth! The norm is 1/2" a month and you have got 1/2" over that......Way to grow girl! Keep it coming!

    Yes you are. It's more than average. When you are just starting out, I know it doesn''t seem like much, but it is. Hang in there. It will happen.

    I'd say it is good progress. Above average.

    And you have doubled your bangs too, in one season! Make the most of your growth rate being noticable haha.

    I don't know if my growth was from my nourishair pills that I was taking or not. I had to stop taking them about 3 weeks ago cause the biotin in them was causing bad acne. I hope I continue this growth without them. I was taking the pills since the day I started growing my hair but stopped a couple of times due to the acne. Now that I am clear again I am thinking of starting the pills again and see what happens.
