I think it's smart to measure the bottom since that's the hair that will reach your goal first. That's what I do.

You can either take a picture of your hair every 3 months or write the length down when you measure. You can do both if you want.

.....That's about it! Ready set grow
Awe looks like I'm out because I flat iron to check length.

But I wouldn't use expired castor oil, if you bought it recently just return it. I started using JBCO instead and its not as thick and smells OK but I can't tell yet if its better.

I'd like to join. I can measure and take a picture on Friday (wash day). Are there any set rules (i.e., protective styling, etc.?)
