help !!!!

I'm wanting my natural hair back after 6 years of relaxing. My last relaxer was in December and I can tell that about 1 or 2 inches of my natural hair has grown back. How long do yall think it will take for my relaxer to be totally gone since my hair is about half an inch past my shoulder? I don't want to do the BC so I'm trying to find some good curly hair products to helps the transition along. Any good advice would be greatly appreciated.
- BTW, my natural hair type is 3c

Hey girl congrats on your decision to go natural! The good news is if you care for your hair efficiently and keep the relax ends trimmed, your hair will flourish. I don't really know the rate of which your hair grows but trying to get your hair past your shoulders can take maybe 1 1/2-2 years. Its different for everyone though. My last relaxer was in December as well. And I literally have hair about two inches past my shoulders too. Stay encouraged, and try not to be caught up with length, it will drive you slowly insane. Just focus on keeping it healthy, moisturized, and most of all enjoy this journey!! Happy growing!

"Wait, I'm doing it wrong!"
thanks for the advice! Whenever I would go get my relaxers (which was usually every three months) my new growth would be about half and inch or more so it grows pretty fast. So now I'm washing my hair every 2 nights and conditioning the other 5.
According to researchers, hair grows at the average rate of 1/2 inch per month.
