Oh word! Angela Davis would be proud. That reminds me of another recent thread about hair size. I forget the name though...

She sounds like a forum chick.. she knows the lingo..lol But more power to her and her sunblocking fro, especially since she said she would never go to back to chemically altered hair.

I do wonder how long it would be straightened though.

Her hair is gorgeous. I can't wait for my hair to get that huge.

No shade though, but after 12 years I'd think it would be much bigger than that. Just sayin...

I was expecting something twice the size of her fro. She is the first and only person to try for the title, so we'll see the next time around.

She has amazing hair though!

She's probably a slow grower, I know I am. (not to mention potential setbacks).

Well, we don't keep all the length we grow every year. There is incidental damage, from combing, rubbing on clothes, etc. The most we an keep is most of the growth, not all. (imo)

So I'm not surprised that her hair doesn't seem longer. It also is not straightened, and she's 4a/b, so she has some shrinkage too (even with her stretched out afro). I'm sure her hair is actually longer than it appears (as most of us know)

Her hair is gorgeous!

+1. That and hair falls out of the follicle every 7 years or so, so all of those strands of hair have to be a lot younger than 12 years.

My goodness is her hair luscious though! I can believe she managed to retain all that length using such (cheaply made) commercial brands such as Pantene and Dove and not being CG. Imagine where her hair could have been if she was.

Shoot, in any case, hopefully anyone of us can step up to take the title given twelve years of CG growth lol
