Does Anyone Else Experience This??

So I have noticed that the hair in the back of my head grows a lot faster than that in the front! Does anyone else's hair grow unevenly? If so, what did you do to prevent the mullet look?

    i have the same problem only the middle grows faster then the back and the front ...but it could also be how you are styling your hair ...and your hair foliculs are sepperated into groups. hair tends to grow and rest for months at a time. so the hair in the front may be resting prolong or help your hairgrowth you can mix MSM powder with olive oil and water and moisterize ur scalp everynt or other nt.OR you can take MSM pills. the MSM does nothing but shortens ur hairs resting period .

    I know for me it seems like the top grows quicker than the back, but what it really is is that my curls are looser around the crown area and the back has more shrinkage. It's weird. Haha.

    The back of my hair grows way faster than the rest. I am APL in the back, my sides are SL-CL and the front is chin length. Sometimes shrinkage keeps the back from looking noticeably longer but I usually just pin the back up into an updo.

    I have the same problem - the back/bottom seems to retain length better and is looser, so hangs down a bit lower than the rest. I have my hair cut in long layers which helps, but when it gets too long (to the point where it looks like I have 2 different haircuts, lol), I get a trim.

    Also, when I wear a ponytail, I sometimes don't pull my hair all the way through so the long part is up and looks shorter.

    The top of my hair grows faster than the back, and the right is longer than the left. I am all types of lopsided!

    ^^^This is how my hair operates. I think it's the layers from my self-BC though. I like the layers and I don't wanna even them out.

    My problem is with multiple textures...The hair at my nape is less textured than the rest of my hair. When I do "out" styles, it hangs awkwardly. To combat this, I set the back of my ytwists/braids on perm rods. It works very well.
