Default finally!!!

well i finally just barely made waist length earlier this month. how ever i realize my new goal is to make waist length unstretched. so i'm thinking that will be around hip length or so. basically i did need more protein as well as protecting my ends. so i just rocked the bun for like 2 months straight and got the length i needed. very happy. this year i will just maintain the length to insure health. then 2010 hip length here i come!!! lol

A lot depends on your hair genetics as well as your hair care regimen. Some people have very long growth cycles. Hair grows about 6 inches a year. If your hair has a 2 year cycle,then the longest it can get would be about 12 " before the hairs would fall out & new ones would start growing.Did your parents or their close relatives have very long hair ? If so then you might inherit those genes; but if the cycle is around 3-5 years you'd get 18-30" of hair. I knew a woman who had 4b/c hair that would never grow longer than about 3" no matter what she did. She decided to just wear a TWA( teeny weeny afro) & get wigs for different styles.

As far as I know, average cycle is far longer than 2 or 3 years though (up until now I was certain it is 7 years, but that varies from person to person, not to mention other factors). But visible length does depend on shrinkage, so to be waist length curlies need to grow it longer even longer. I'm solid waist length when curly (I'd dare say even an inch longer, although it depends on the curls), but my hair is far less curly than 4 type.

Default Waist length

Hi I'm gena, I did my big chop a year ago and my hair now is by a little passed my shoulders. I measured my hair when I hit a year and I've realized my hair grows about 0.75 or more a month. How long will it take me to reach waist length? Also my hair has been there before but when I was really young and then permed and color damaged my hair that has led me up to my big chop.

I just kinda wanna know an aproximate
Thanks

Genetics also play a role. For me, it's not that difficult to grow my hair back to waist length and longer because my mother, my aunts, my grandma, they always had really long hair. It's a lot of work though, for me
