I know you already got the responses you were looking for but I just wanted to tell you that there is a thread about this! I had the same exact question because I too was on sites like Curly Nikki and Moptop Maven. I think where the have a leg up is that they have been natural all of their lives and we are just starting out. So yes, it may seem intimidating. Trust me, your hair will grow long provided that you listen to it and don't fight nature!
