Hair growth chart.

Jalen (the boyfriend) and I were talking the other day about my hair and how I'm very anxious to cut it in June and he said to me "Just go ahead and cut it for prom and get it over with." I was like "Nooooooo." I understand the get it over with thing but I don't think he understands that it's going to be tightly (or loosely) coiled, I'm still not sure on my hair type, and that although it wit have some length to it, it still will appear shorter than it really is. I really don't think I'm ready to cut it, especially on Prom! And i have no idea how I'm going to look with my graduation cap on. It aint happening until June, babyboy. I believe he thinks it's going to be a cute little pixie cut like Rihanna. He, well most people, aren't grasping the concept of "going natural".

We then started talking about length and I told him my hair should be just about the middle of my back by the end of 2012, he said more like 2014. I told him hair should grow 6 inches a year and he still insisted 2014. I decided to look up the wonderful chart above and it looks as though I'm right. lol. By the end of 2012 my last relaxer would have been 3 years and 2 months, which looks about middle of back in the chart. Of course it won't look as long because of the kinky, coily shrinkage. With the shrinkage I'm assuming it will look about the 2 year mark. Let's hope I can retain length in order to get to my goal. So far so good I believe.

Wish me luck. :)


  1. I know what you mean. I have been growing my hair all my life, in between getting extensions for modeling jobs. Sometimes I wish I had the gut to go short, like a Pixie cut ! ^_^

  3. You have my support. I've been growing out my relaxer but since my hair grows like crabgrass, I think I only have about half an inch of growth since November 2009. By 2014, MAYBE I'll have 6 inches, lol.

  4. Check out user Longhairdontcare2011 on youtube, she has some great videos on natural hair care. Lots of great information in her videos.

  5. okay, im jealous!
    i want to go Natural myself and my hair just wont do it. "good hair" is the reason people give me but thats just Ignorant feedback in my opinion.

    i can't wait to see what yours will look like!
