Teen/ 1 year/ hair growth
Hello, I'm a 16 year old Hispanic male
Last year I decided to let my hair grow for the first time and I realized that My brothers and sisters have type 3C hair while I have 4A hair.
About a year has passed since I decided to let my hair grow and my hair has grown to a length of about 5-6" when I pull it out. It is really curly when I don't do anything so it looks like I only have 2" of growth.
I have 3 questions.
1. When I pick my hair it looks like it is 6" then after a few minutes it shrinks back down to a mini fro.
My second question is why is the hair in the back of my head longer than the one in the front?
This school year I use to be lazy so I would just comb the front of my hair with a brush quickly (Which hurt!!) and my friends tell me that most likely I kept pulling the hair from the front out so the back out grew the front. Could this be the answer?
My third question is, that I recently have gotten cornrows and they are getting really itchy. Its only been 2 days and I want to keep them in for at least 2 weeks, is there anyway to stop the itching?
Edit: Also, I read that biotin increases growth, does biotin really work or does it basically produce a placebo affect and one believes that their hair is growing faster.
Edit edit: I didn't know which section to post this in, sorry if it is wrong >_<
Thank you in advance!
