I was actually thinking about silica for you. That's the only thing I think you could add. I drink bamboo leaf tea.
I think that when your hair is natural, sometimes you cannot know just how long your hair is until you have straightened it with heat. Even though my hair is relaxed, I hardly use heat to straighten. So, it looks often times like collarbone length but when it is blown out, it is past APL. The point is that many women define themselves as slow growers because the shrinkage is tight but if they straighten their hair, they would be surprised. Using your hands to pull your hair straight is not a true picture of one's length.
shasha8685 You are definitely looking like MBL to me! Congrats!
Oh and I think the pp was referring to my complaining about my hair growth upthread.
jprayze How has Bamboo silica been working for your hair growth? I want to try Viviscal in the new year because I want to make MBL by my birthday in March.
MizzBFly you look just below bra-strap...maybe about two more inches to MBL? I think you'll get it by the end of the year.
As for me, I'mma need for this area in my crown to start growing/retaining better. I'm not sure why it's not doing as well as the rest of my hair. I probably need to start massaging, finger detangling, and making sure that area gets enough moisture every day. Hmmm....may need to tweek my regimen. Anyway, I think the nape is on track to be grazing MBL by December if I retain two more inches by the end of the month.
Just nip the tip. My hair grows in a V so every so often I have to snip a small amount from a ponytail.
Please excuse my iPhone
Here is my example: August September OctoberYour the reason I decided not to try to make my hair stay blunt. I believe that you mentioned you made a blunt cut before and it grew right back into a V I have experienced simular results. So I will do the snip as I do my S&D since my hair is straight. When I pass MBL I will definately make a U cause **I will be rocking de hell outta my hair muahhhahahha
So I relaxed my hair yesterday @ 12 weeks post. I think I'm there...Like scraping MBL. I had some good growth since July. I'm kinda scared to claim it it officially, because it still looks so darn short to me. Let me know what you ladies think.
