One Side Longer Than the Other?

The right side of my head is notably longer than the left. Any suggestions to promote growth on the shorter side...or to camouflage the difference in twist outs and other hair styles?

    i accidentally cut one side of my hair noticably shorter and no matter what i tried, it just would not grow back fast enough. keep in mind that i wasnt very consistant but i did scalp massages and put MN and oil on my scalp. i just found it easier to do slight trims every once in a while to even it up

    Yeah for some reason one side of my hair tends to shrink more than the other when its drying, all I could do was trim it myself when it was dry.
    3b/3c. S curls with coils at the end. Normol porosity. Medium texture, super elastic... Barely SL, hoping to go BSL.

    I have the same exact problem... But just in one tiny spot usually. I'll have a chunk of hair that's just slightly longer than the rest of it.

    I had this exact same problem Naptural, I used megatek on the shorter side to even it out. It worked but it also made it noticeably thicker so I when I wore my hair out one side was full of volume and thickness and the other flatter. Eventually the extra thickness faded once I stopped using it but good news: the length stayed. So if you want to even your hair out I'd recommend megatek
