I have noticed that my curls are a lot better a few weeks after a new trim, which I am due for now. Also I'm trying to get my hair to WL but it has taken me 5 years and 7 months to get to about mid back, which is past my bra strap. My hair grows almost an inch a month but every 3 to 4 months I have to cut and inch off the ends to trim it. It's about like 3 steps forward 1 step back.
I do love my hair though. When it's dry it's more down to just above my bra strap. Hope you guys are able to keep your hair growing long.
