    I would like to join! I was looking for someone who was a similar length as me. I have been shaving my head since January, but now I think I want to grow it out.
    I'm not good with measuring my hair, especially at this length, but I'll try.


    This was about a week and a half ago. Don't mind my facial expression; I was pretty buzzed :/

    So my hair is growing fairly fast, according to my acquaintances, but it isn't curling up yet; the back is getting wavy though. Needless to say, my hair looks awkward. I keep wearing scarves on my head because it won't curl up too much yet. Are there any products anyone might recommend to get my hair to lay down and look cute at the same time?

    hmmm well there's Eco Styler Gel. Alot of people says it works for them. I personally use Curls Unleashed Curl Boosting Jelly since it doesn't have such a short list of conditioners that it plays nice with. It depends on you and your wallet. Eco Styler gel is much much cheaper than CU's Jelly.

    Wow I'd like to join. I'm 4 months post BC. I don't know if I'll be shoulder length in a year. We Will see. Can we use growth aids?

    Been really busy with school and the like, but here is my hair. I started wearing a silk bonnet and bought some hair oil that I use after I condition sometimes. My friends think it's growing fast, but I still don't see it.
    edit brushed out just now
