hair grow faster or slower on different places of head?

like my overall length (like the bottom layer of hair) it grows fast, like an inch a month. but my layers and bangs seem to grow slower.. does anyone else have this problem?
2a/f/miii/normal porosity
wavy, hip length, very thick
hair length journey:
december '08 12 inches long, shoulder
june '12 31 inches long, hip
summer 2012 goal: in between hip and tailbone
Ultimate goal: tailbone or or maybe classic length
my hair loves henna !





I have the exact same problem. The front doesn't seem to grown nearly as fast as the back and crown of my head. Its very irritating!!

yep! thats why i measure my hair growth in the back, it always grows faster i wonder if it has anything to do with how the top layer is exposed to sunlight and all that. cause the top layers and bangs are a bit damaged and the bottom layer of my hair is softer and curlier

My hair grows the exact same way. It can be frustrating; I feel like I have a mullet.

i hate having layers soo much:/ they make my hair look so unhealthy and flattttt:/

mine is different.. the front and sides of my hair grows faster..i be lookin like don king hahah
My hair is the same! When I was trying to grow out my angled bob hair, I had to trim the back (and still currently do) at least 5 times. The underside+back grows at a rate of 2+ inches per month, no joke! the front.. maybe a little over half an inch.

The hair underneath is also very healthy... could be hair oils from scalp/sun damage in the rest of the hair etc...

but its very frustrating!
CG since 6/26/09! Also growing out!

Thick borderline 2C/3A (hair wavy at this length), mostly medium, high porosity (I think!)

Current products in rotation: V05 Kiwi Clarifying Conditioner followed by Suave Coconut Conditioner (CO wash). GVP K-Pak k/o (once a week). Sunsilk Hair Oil mix (international product) & castor Oil.
I know how you feel, op. I keep checking for the length in the back and it has slowed down...meanwhile my front and crown are having a ball. My front and crown are usually the slowest, but I think now they are telling me, "see what happens when you ignore us?"
WL 6/26/09 and my hair type is 3b-4a...I will compromise with 3c
