Is this a stupid idea?

Well, I came up with this idea last night as I was doing my hair (I did a twist-out for the first time, it turned out OK:-?...lol) I was thinking to cut the relaxer off a little piece of my hair, somewhere that is easy to hide.
This way I can measure the growth of this one piece of hair to see my progress and measure when I can do the bc. Is that silly? Has anyone ever done this? Let me know what you all think!;-)

    I don't think its stupid... especially if its in a place no one can see. I've done the same thing, but not to check the growth... I do it just because I'm bored and probably take it way too far. There are so many random pieces cut in my hair and they're all not in places that are hidden. :) that might be stupid.

    Thanks for your reply!

    I was bored tonight and I just took the scissors and chopped a piece! Check it out on my fotki:/home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fpublic.fotki.com%2Fljkelly%2F" class="Popup

    Not stupid at all. I have several shorter pieces in my head from 'experimental BCs' lol. Your texture is pretty.
    transition - 12.07 - 3.09 (15 mos)
    length: medium
    hairy type: diff types.

    Thank you! I am still so excited from it! I can't stop touching my hair! It has really made me reconsider when I want to do my bc! :wav:

    you're welcome.

    and same here. Every time I do that I think about finishing it off but I want at least collarbone length hair when I bc.

    How long do you want to transition for?

    I was planning on doing my bc when my hair was at least long enough to put into a ponytail but with the shrinkage and my impatience I am not sure if I can wait that long. It will be either July--which will be one year or Oct. which is 15 months.

    When are you doing yours?

    I think thats a great idea, I have done 3 different sections of my hair already... it helps you get use to your texture and the shinkage, believe me when i did my most recent mini mini chop I was shocked but it took me a few days and i began to love it. Also it is very easy to hide if you dont do it too close to the front of ur hair line.

    That is not a stupid idea. I have done the same thing to the back of my hair. That section seems to be growing the fastest for some reason. I will just cut a tiny piece. It helps me really see the natural texture.
