What is your hair growth goal via inches?
Feb 26th, 2003 at 11:51pm
 
[color=Purple][/color]
As far as I'm concerned, I've just reached 7 inches and my goal is 12 inches.  I'm a 3a/b texture and I condition my hair often.

Welcome!  It sounds like you are well on your way to reaching your goal.  Do you know what your growth rate is?  My hair grows at about 1/2" per month, but sometimes more during the warmer summer months.

[color=Purple][/color]  Thanks for your reply.
Yes Smiley  My growth rate appears to be 1 inch per month.  However, this is a first for me because my hair did not seem to grow at all for years...however, I've learned from other message boards proper hair care to prevent breakage, and strengthen the hair.  Also, since the beginning of this month,  I have a real hair regimine now along with a change in my diet....I include more protein, and take hair supplements.  It is unbelieveable!  Now if I can continue this growth it would be great.  I've heard that the growth rate is much faster in the summer months, so we will see.

Wow, 1" per month is great!  I could only wish for such growth.  It sounds like you have learned a lot about taking care of your hair and yourself so that you can get such growth.  I'm sure others here would love to hear what supplements you are taking and which hair products work best for you. (Not having African American hair myself, I don't know much about the unique characteristics or issues).

Yes.  Assuming from your message you have caucasian grade hair.  My hair is a 3a/b texture.  I'm part American Indian, however my hair is more like hair of the blacks.  I don't know if I will get another inch out of next month, however I will continue my hair regimine. Grin

I average about 1/2" per month,  a little less in the winter, a little more in the summer.  I think I get pretty close to 6" per year.  I have recently added Biotin and Silica to my routine and although I have not seen an increase in the monthly growth rate, my fallout rate has decreased significantly.

ShockedWOW!
I think 1/2 inch is Grrrrrrrrrrreat!
Of course that would be acceptable for me.
I take vitamins which contain MSM and Horsetail Silica.  I believe they have accelerated my hair growth as well.  As far as hair fall-out, if you experience this again, check out the Ayurvedic hair products.  You can purchase these at an (East Indian) market.  Amla oil is good for pre-conditioning before shampooing.  Natural products work best because they do not contain alcohol and other drying agents.

My hair growth rate is a little less than an inch per month.

Where do you live, High_Priestess? I wonder if I can get Ayurvedic products here, since my mother has a lot of fall-out.

High_Priestess;
I use jojoba oil on the ends for conditioning.  My fallout is primarily a hormonal/age thing.  The MSM, biotin and silica really helped reduce the fallout, but unfortunately I have lost almost half of my thickness. (Glad I had really thick hair to begin with!)  Some of it looks like it is coming back (I have lots of short, new growth) so I am just being very careful with what I have.  I have not heard of Ayurvedic products, where are they produced/manufactured?

Sorry for the delay, I've been so busy with business.
Yes.  Ayurvedic products are (East) Indian. 
I reside in California.  If you have problems locating where to purchase these products, just go to a search engine and type in the key words.
Where do you live?

Actually, I've just found out that these products are readily available here (in Bangladesh). Do these products help anything else other than fall-out?

Hi Bikerbraid
You can usually find these products in Indian stores.  The names are usually a give-away.  For example, the name of one store might be "India Spiceland" or India (something).  Also, if you can find out where the Indian communities in your state are located, usually you can find the neighboring stores.
Good luck with that.  I'm here if you need me.

Hello, 

  I am new to this message board.  It is a lovely site.  I think my hair would be considered 3c4a thin to med volume fine texture with some med texture in the crown and front.  I discovered the International Long Hair Club and Neil's Long and Natural sites a year ago Feb.  They  renewed my  my life long desire to achieve long beautiful hair.  I also purchased His book.  I am chemical free except for semi-permanent hair color.  My hair has, with the advice received, grown longer this past year than ever.  So I am in uncharted waters as far as hair length.  However, I have set a goal of mid thigh.  I have named that length,  Renaissance, mostly because it represents, for me, a touch of the past with a rebirth into a dream I have always had.  I started with thinned hair mid back  length with layers(not by choice).  Neil said it was no need to cut but to only trim off any splits.   
     It is currently 5 inches past my waist about at my hip bone.  Not sure if that is the tail bone length equivilant.  The layers are consistant in growth.  I imagine that once my hair reaches its natural final length the layers will come together. The shortest is the front and the crown where I had the worst thinning and breakage before.   Also I am going with the natural V shape.  Of course I have to pull  on my hair to see actual length.  My hair can coil up about 7 inches.  With mid thigh I could achieve a nice braid that falls around Classic length. 
   Its nice to have found this site. Smiley

Hi and welcome! 

It is always frustrating when you want to reach a goal and you don't seem to be getting any closer to it. 

How long has your hair been at its current length?  It is " is average, but many, including me, see half that during the winter months.

Patience and good care will usually be what you need to reach your hair goals.  Good Luck!  Cheesy

My hair growing at about 1/2" to 3/4" per month.  I do lose a lot when combing or shampooing though....or it seems I do.  My goal is 48" long or between my butt and my knees!

I have no idea what my hair length is in inches is or how many inches I want my hair to be as a goal.  All I know is that right now my hair falls about three inches above armpit length and my goal length is  waist to tailbone length.  I'll have to start measuring my hair to see how much it grows per month, though.  Oh yeah, and I'm new to this forum.  So far, I like it a lot  Smiley
