Default 3a in need of a change

Hi! I'm a 3 a (I think) and I seriously need a change with my hair cut. I have been thinking of chopping most of it off *it's just passed my shoulder blades now* But I really want to grow it out. Mostly it's because I am so impatient when it comes to growing my hair out. Anyone out there willing to convince me to let it grow and not cut it all off? Maybe even give me some advice on how to get it to grow faster?

I get antsy too, but your hair is so long already that you don't have very long to wait for super length! Have you considered trying out some new updos and buying some new hair toys? That always helps me! LOL!

I wore my hair up through out all of high school. I'm getting back in french braiding... and that kind of helps. I'm just sick of looking at it. It doesn't help that I am the only curly I know... at least, the only curly that doesn't straighten.

I like being unique! I'd think being the only curly would be a good thing
Here it's so humid lots of people let their hair go curly. I see them everywhere!

I say if you want to grow it keep growing, you're already pretty long so it shouldn't take much time

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!

I like it when I'm the only curly too! It gets me lots of attention.

Anywho, as for encouragement to keep groing it out. You could get i styled by adding layers or side swept bangs, but still keep the length. I also take vitamins that have increased the amount my hair grows each month. Its speed had nearly doubled, so I don't have to worry about it being a length I despise for too long!

Since the end August I have been taking:
1 Women's One a day
1 500 mg tablet of Silica
1 1000 mg tablet of MSM (apparently increases the length hair will grow to)
1 500 mg Evening Primrose oil softgel capsule
1 500 mg FlaxSeed Oil softgel capsule
2 600 mcg Biotin tablets
2 GNC NourishHair Tablets

I think that the biotin, MSM, and silica are what influence hair growth the most though, esp. the biotin.
HTH.
