Default New Hair Growth

Has anybody noticed some spots on their head since going CG where they have some new growth? If you do, share your picture(s)!

I'm amazed at how much hair has grown in, and on both sides of my head. Craziness. Either this hair was never there or it started growing like crazy after being the same length all my life.

Maybe not new hair, but my hair in those regions seem to get a whole lot longer. I always had this "halo" around my head from the hair right along my hair line in the front that was alway short and frizzy and just... bad. Now? They are suddenly getting longer...! I never thought they could get any longer than what they always were... Guess taking better care of my hair matters...

What I think it is for me is that these hairs are finer than most the hair I have, and seem to break more easily. At the same time I always wore tight braids or pony tails with a massive weight of hair with the most force being applied to this section. No wonder they broke off...! What I find even more interesting is that they have actually started to curl a lot. Still having trouble clumping, but I seriously have 3B curls there. Or, not sure, but when these air dry with nothing on each hair strand has a curl diameter of like 1 cm at most with nice even spiral curls, which is a fair bit tighter than the rest of my hair.

My part is always in the same place, and since I started cg last summer I've had a ton of new little hairs growing in that area.

I've had baby hairs like that most of my life. It would be awesome if they started growing. They're annoying to me.

I have one little 2" gray hair right in the middle of my part near the front of my head that sticks right up. It's pretty silly.

I know my husband has his fingers crossed for a Stacy London stripe and he might get his wish.

I've never found mine annoying until now when I try to put my hair up. I think they've always been like 1/2" long. I just can't believe how much it's grown.

I've got a whole bunch of new short hairs sticking up all over the top of my head. My hair is already extremely thick so I was pretty surprised. I did pluck the 2 grey I found

I have a feeling I'm going to have a ton soon.

My hair feels like it has been thinning- lots going down the drain at least. I'm not sure if its falling out from stress (has happened before) or if I'm not shedding hair throughout the day like I did when I kept it straight.

Either way, I can see tiny, prickly hairs sticking up when I look at my scalp especially near the corners of my forehead.

Polyquats are terrible. I seems to be able to tolerate butters and oils in the most sparing amounts as long as I low-poo frequently.

After stopping bleaching my hair, using heat and using sulfate shampoos and come conditioners my hair has wildly sprang back to life. After three months of cg this spot by my right temple that used to be dead broken hair has turned into a mess of frizzy curl shaped things. It's literally like I have "built in bangs". I also have breakage at the very front of my head that are growing at a fast pace that I didn't even know I had! Putting my hair up in a ponytail hallways leaves me with these little guys peeping out but while I'm growing out all this damage I just have to bear it! Every little springy curl I see reminds me how far I have come New Hair Growth-imageuploadedbycurltalk1395373869.879505.jpgNew Hair Growth-imageuploadedbycurltalk1395373890.142305.jpgNew Hair Growth-imageuploadedbycurltalk1395373916.369289.jpg

I have these too, and I also have very dense hair.

I find it to be the weirdest thing, all these hairs growing where they never did before... or seeing just how much breakage I had with the flat iron for all those years.
