How does your hair grow?

greenandchicgreenandchic Registered Users Posts: 2,584 Curl Neophyte
When it comes to my hair growth, over the years I noticed that my hair grows twice as fast in the back then it does the front. Last summer I cut my hair up to the bottom of my next and now the back (and most of the crown) is half way down to my bra strap where the front is just hitting the shoulders and the right is slightly longer than the left consistently.

Has anyone else noticed uneven hair growth? I'm not complaining, growth is growth, just wondering if I'm not the only one. :P

    The hair in the bottom back (nape-ish area) and right in the middle of my crown grow really fast. The rest of my hair grows about the same except for front right side of my head which is generally about 1/4 inch to almost 1/2 inch shorter than the left. The only reason I know this is because I have a habit of chopping off/shaving my head then basically watching it grow. :|

    Everything is pretty much equal besides the middle part of my head. That is the shortest part of my hair. But my hair is growing uneven because of the way my hair was cut during my BC. I'll have it even out next year.

    The front of my hair grows super super fast and i always get it cut (im doing it today aswell). Its the only part that is being bleached and straightened aswell, its soooo weird.
    If the rest of my hair grew the same, i would have been able to have tailbone length in a years time!!! Its so sad :(
    Hair type Mostly 3C! Thin and quite Porous (I think?)
    Current length Just past shoulders (stretched/soaking wet) and just above my shoulders (unstretched/dry)

    I think my hair grows about evenly all over my scalp.
    I haven't noticed anything blatant that tells me otherwise.

    The back part of the crown and the bits over and in front of my ears grow much faster than the rest of my hair. I end up trimming those parts every couple of months and only trim the rest once per year.

    My hair seems to grow faster at the nape, but I think it's because it's more 3C, whereas the rest of my hair is more 4A. It all grows fast and big!

    I think my hair grows the same rate all over too... The growth seems slow to me but I think it's pretty normal.
    I just want to do what I want to do when I want to do it.

    I definitely have 3c in the back too. My only 4a is a little in my crown and that grows the slowest.
