Well, I remeasured my hair today and with help from my husband I found out that I don't have 2 3/4 inches but actually it is a little over 3 inches long! Wow, over one inch of growth in a month! I use to believe that my hair didn't grow. Now I know that it did grow, but broke off because of the relaxer that was making my hair weak and brittle. I am 35 years old and had relaxed hair for 32 of those years. Every time I tried to grow my hair past my shoulders I suffered from severe breakage especially in the back of my head. Now that I am natural, I believe that with proper care I will be able to grow it past my shoulders. Wish me luck and lots of healthy growth this next month.
