How Long Does It Take...?

I am transitioning.....i'm almost 6 months post. I want to know how long would it take to reach APL/BSL stretched?? As that's when i want to BC....i'm guessing it'll take about 2 years?

Am i right?
You're right. APL for most people rests at about 16-18", depending on height. With the 3" you've already grown, your hair will be there in about 26 months (2 years, 2 months). In fact, that's no time at all!

Good luck on your hair growing goals!

Okay...Thank You CurlySexyHair!!!!

I'm just SO excited....i'm such a geek...i'm waistlength right now but i will be mini chopping it to BSL(the relaxed ends) or APL next year....and was just wondering how long it would take me to get back to or close to that length before i BC.

26 months eh? And my hair grows pretty fast too.......:blob 2:
I went from just above shoulder length stretched to BSL in exactly 2 years. I get dusting trims about every 8 months.

Happy Growing!

Randomly, are you all measuring from the back? Just wondering, because I'm almost at my one year (BC'ed to an inch of hair), and I'm about 3 inches away from APL in the back, and my sides are to my collarbone.

Scalp massages are also nice, and working out stimulates the scalp. I don't protective style though.

This is good solid advice. I BC'd in September. My hair length goal is to grow it as long as I possibly can. I used Doo Gro oil when my hair was relaxed to stimulate growth. Shoot...it worked. Not so much for my natural hair though. I refilled the bottle with castor, almond, and jojoba.

I definitely agree that nutrition is important to hair growth, as well as nail growth. I started a healthier lifestyle last January (working out, eating healthier, and drinking lots of water), and I actually have nails that I can paint now LOL. Protein for the win! Combined with an actual hair regimen and vitamin supplements, my hair is growing faster than it ever has. It's now at 3.5 inches stretched, three months later.
