how long does it take curly hair to grow?

I straitened my hair from age 14 to 20 basically constantly. But my hair never grew longer than the top of my breasts (straitened). It went to my collar bone curly. Eventually, it started getting shorter Now I'm not using any heat tools on it, eating about 50 grams of protein every day, taking ultra hair plus vitamins, conditioning it daily, using hot oil masks on it, spending 5 minutes every day upside down, and giving myself scalp massages. It's been about a month... I can't tell if it has grown yet or not Does anyone have any experience growing out curly hair?
The more you worry and stress about growing your hair, the more difficult it will be.

Just maintain a decent regimen and take hair supplements/regular vitamins and your hair should grow 1/4 to 1/2 inch per month.

Hair can grow anywhere from 1/4 to 1inch a month. Your growth rate will determine how long it will take. With curly hair it can be harder to see the length because of shrinkage. Not stressing about growing and setting realistic goals are the best way to grow your hair. To figure out your growth rate measure your hair in various places from month to month. You will find that the time of year has a lot to do with it too. I grow faster in winter than in summer. Also make sure that you keep your ends well moisturized and protected to keep them from breaking.
Your hair is always growing. If you are not getting length then your ends are breaking.
I honestly think the reason a lot of curly girls can experience a low growth rate or at least feel they don't experience as much growth as their straight-haired counterparts is because of two reasons:

1) Our hair shrinks so it just looks shorter, even though it grows at the same rate.

2) We love to straighten our hair, and the damage can add up, breaking off our ends and keeping our hair short.

Just take care of your hair and don't focus on length, focus on health. Length will come with proper care and a good haircare routine. 14-20 is A LOT of heat damage, your hair just needs to be loved right now. Cut down the amount of heat you use..I really argue all curlies should cut it out completely, but it's up to you.
Mostly 3c and lovin' my curls

This is not a fashion trend, it's not a statement, it's pride for who we are and what we look like. And that is where our true beauty shines.
