How long did it take you to grow your hair long?

I stayed in a hotel this weekend and got a nice surprise: the room had a three-way mirror and I could see that my back hair was finally down almost to my bra strap! The rest of the hair is finally BSL three years after a disastrous haircut (bob with some mullet-y layers no more than 1.5" long). My goal is to have my hair be more or less all one length and down to maybe armpit length in front, and now I think I'm only a year away. Anyhow, wondering how long it's taken other curlies to grow out their hair after a short cut??
3b, fine, medium density, normal porosity
Wash: Deva No Poo, sometime Phytojoba, Avalon lemon when needs clarifying
Rinse-out: Deva One Condition, CJ Beauticurls Strengthening, Phytojoba (kinda heavy for my hair but good noisture)
Leave-in: Phytokeratine, CCCCL
Styling: Deva Coconut Supercream or their Wave Maker with a little CS over the top

    It takes me about three years when going from short to get it about armpit length. My hair grows very slowly.

    It took me one entire year to get from BSL to waist length, but I have curly in the front and wavy in the back.

    I cut my hair June of 2010 to collar bone length and its now 4 inches from waist length. I've gotten trims here and there, too. My hair grows at a normal rate according to my stylist.

    My hair loves protein, plopping, and diffusing! Trying to find a way to style and air dry.
