I'm so frustrated. I've been natural for two years and hair hasn't grown any longer.

With having type 4 hair, growing my hair out has been a struggle for me and the worst thing is I find myself being so envious with other women and their hair every time I see pictures of them and their long hair. It's like is my hair ever gonna grow out again? When am I gonna longer hair?

Has your texture changed over this period? I've noticed that, despite not looking much longer, as my hair has become healthier since I've stopped straightening it the texture has changed. As it's curlier now it looks about the same length it used to when it was damaged but, if I tug on a curl it goes way past where it used to.It also might be worth having a trim if your ends are damaged, as breakage can often counteract growth.
