This caught my attention because I went through it myself. My hair was always pretty long but when i relaxed, my hair was never healthy. I got it cut a good 6 straight inches to get the dead stuff off and realized that I was messing up my hair and decided to get it healthy. When my hair was relaxed it was probably about bra length. Now that I've been natural for a few years it's BWL when it's completely dry and when pulled straight it almost comes down to my pants Just hang in there and I'm sure you can get the length you want
