I would like to join. I've been growing my hair out since May 2010 and am in-between SL and APL. I'm at about 8" all around and hope to retain about 5" this year. No real length goal because I don't want to obsess over it.
My staples are in my siggy.
I just took that, (less then a month from the other one, i normally take the pics on the 18th, but its the 9th) and when i put the three together i couldnt believe it!!! woow i think thats great how much growth ive had in 3 months!! im really exited and had to share my excitement!

I'm in! I transitioned for one year & Big Chopped on New Years Eve. Here is my current length in pics. I am currently 1month post BC! Not sure if its realistic but I would love to reach APL (straight) & (below shoulder length curly) by December 22, 2012 which is my 2 year (post relaxer) natural curlyversary!

I'm drinking lots of water... At least 16 glasses per day, taking MSM 1,000 mcg, Biotin 5,000 mcg, Vitamin E, & 1 prenatal vitamin per day. As well, I'm eating vegetables & an hour of cardio 5 days per week. I just started the CG method with no cones & (co washing 3 days per week) on yesterday. I am going to attempt to remember to massage my scalp everyday for 5 minutes.

I don't know if its because I stopped straightening my hair as often but my hair grew and had less splits.

Im a little late but I want to join too! My hair is a little below my shoulders and my goal is about 3 inches by may! I take biotin, MSM and a multi everyday. My hair is finally feeling healthier after years of short damaged hair. But I do still straighten and wash with sulfate… baby steps. I can't wait to see everyone's progress

I don't have pictures yet unfortunately, but I measure on the 12th and got almost an inch last month! At this rate I'll get to my goal length by the summer, but will keep growing to see how long I can get.
I almost done my one month wear up my hair. I try two more month and i hope the massage in my scalp I can get 1 inch. And I think my medication influence my grow, in the weekend i finish the last bottle.

I'm in I did a big chop back in December, and I'm already seeing substantial growth. I want my hair to be at my mid back, but I will settle for shoulder blade length too. I think for now I'll just say that I'm going to try for the longer length. My hair was once to my hips...relaxed it, big mistake for me personally.
Well my avatar is the most recent pic of me with my hair wavy so you guys can see my progress. I'm happy with how my hair is doing growth-wise....I bought rosemary oil last week for my dry flaky scalp but I heard it can help with growth too (I'm not counting on it but if it's a happy co-winky-dink, I'll take it!!). I've been trying to eat better too and cut down on my stress levels but I have to work on that! My next hair cut will probably be in early April so I'll post pics then to see how things are going.
