Slow Hair Growth
Yesterday, I measured for the first time, how much new growth I have. On average I have around 4 1/2 - 5 1/2 inches or thereabouts. Yes, you guessed it, my hair grows fairly slow. The average growth for hair is 1/2 inch a month... I calculated that mine grows approximately 1/3 an inch a month. Am I going to search the internet for a magic growth potion? No, I'm going to set my goals based on my average. In life I've learnt that comparing yourself to others can belittle your own achievements, be proud of what you've achieved! I'm proud to have reached 15 months post relaxer and have another 7 months left of my planned transition. My main goal is to have healthy hair, once I've achieved this, length will follow. Below is a picture of my hair with conditioner in it, I love being able to see my progress :). Do you document your journey with photos?
