2 inches into bra strap length!

I have exactly two inches to go and then I am officially BSL!! :) I grow an inch a month , (i think using coconut oil on my scalp and hair and doing the inversion takes a big part in my hair growth) so, I am expect to be BSL by December! :) After December, I am setting a new goal for MBL, about 3-4 more inches so, I expect to reach that goal in April or May! I am so excited !

Although, I tend to shed a lot more hairs. It like the faster my hair grows the faster it shed... :sad10: , but my length still maintains.. I would post a pic but.. I haven't took one yet!

Any comments? Tips?

    Congrats on the growth!

    Mine has been doing the same - shedding tons more as it grows. I use coconut oil and inversion massage here and there too, it really does help the growth.

    Some possible reasons for shedding -

    1. You have more hair now, the longer hair may make it look like more.

    2. I've read that too much Vitamin A can cause shedding. Have you been taking vitamins? I just stopped my vitamins with A in it and started something else about a week ago. Haven't noticed any difference yet.

    3. You hair has a cycle of life, per se. It could just be shedding season for your hair cycle.

    There's also medical reasons for shedding, but I don't know too much about those.

    congrates on almost getting to your goal length! although mine does grow nicely, when its wet and drying its almost BSL as well, though when its dry its just over my shoulders -.- this shrinkage.
    i wouldnt worry too much about the shedding if your still gaining length, vit A can make your hair shed? ive never heard that

    my hair: 3b, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
    my hair loves conditioner only styling!
    Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
    my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.
