Type 4's how much length did you retain in a year?

SO I'm coming up on a year natural and I'm wondering if the 5 inches over retained is me doing well or not. My hair grows 1/2 inch a month. Just got my last trim of the year and I'm averaging 5 inches all around. WHAT are your normal lengths RETAINED yearly? DO YOU THINK I DID WELL?
I think 5" is great! That's about how much mine grows within a year. I dyed my hair last November, and then got really lazy about it. As it grew there was a big difference in the color of the new growth, and I didn't dye it again for a year. It had grown a good 5" within that time. So yeah, I think you're right on target . Good job

Shoot, I re-read that and you were asking the type 4's, oops. I'm not a type 4, but I think all curl types probably grow about the same.

Why thank you for your response. Yes I was asking type 4's only because I thought looser curls may have a higher retaining amount since you all deal with a little less tangles...BUT I see I was wrong about that since our retained length was very similar. Thanks again!!!

Oh yeah, I can see how that could make a difference, but it's probably about the same, but maybe for a really tight texture it could be harder to actually tell the length, unless it's stretched and detangled. Oh, the joys of curls, right??!

I think 5 inches is great considering the need to trim away split ends.
Forget what hurt you, but never forget what it taught you.
