Hair growing slow

My hair seems to be at a stand still. It's been 3 months and it's a little below 2 inches or 2 inches. I hear lots of people saying they get like 4-6 inches in 3 months. Will using coconut oil help? I am new to growing out, and I don't know a much about hair.

    Well hair on average only grows about 1/2 in per month. So obviously there are those out there that get a little bit more per month. But if you've retained about 2in in that period of time you're doing well. Just remember moisture for length retention and you should be good on your journey. Also there are no "magic" cures that will make your hair grow lightning fast just patience and tlc for your locs.

    I don't know anyone whose gotten that much growth so quickly, but if i did i would get hair tips from them a.s.a.p!!

    But seriously, your hair growth is VERY normal. I bc'd last august (I'm now at about 5 1/2 inches) and my growth has been 1/2 inch a month even with the use of growth aids. I too got a little frustrated when I wasn't getting the same results as other people. A lot of the time different people use inaccurate or different ways to measure, which can make it seem like their hair hair is growing more that it is. At this point I'm just glad I'm KEEPING all the growth I have rather than how much is coming out of my head every month. Just keep doing what your doing, and be patient. A 1/2 and inch a month is a lot more than you think it is
