EDIT: Im nowhere near WL but I can say that it took me about a year to get from shoulder to BSL.... I was SL when I got married 1 year ago... and im about 1-2 inches away from bsl today.

It took me about 2 years to go from shoulder to brastrap. I was natural though and never used heat, never had split ends or damage the whole time. Now being texturized, using heat, more manipulation, trimming occasionally, it seems to be going much slower. I figure it will take me about 3 more years to get full waistlength.

If thats YOU in your avator then umm maybe SL unstretched. You look like you have a good APL stretched going on.

I would like to know this too. I feel like I been at shoulder length for to long. its been seven months since I reached shoulder length. Its driving me crazy. I I hope I can get to Ampt by April that will be two years. which means it took me a year to get from shoulder to armpit.

From to SL to BSL to WL....

How long did it take you?
-Took me just over a year to get from SL to BSL. I would say about 14 months. I achieved BSL one year ago this month and am still waiting to achieve WL; hopefully I'll be there by next summer. If I make it before then I'll let you know

#1 Contributor to Growth?:
-Growth has been pretty steady; no major contributors. Retention contributors include low manipulation hairstyles (I wear a bun ALL the time LOL), deep conditioning, and staying away from scissors. HTH!!

ETA: I'm short!!

No prob....I mean, some people may have had contributors to their growth (from vitamins, etc.). It's just that I haven't

If I get an inch at the end of December I will be "just" touching brastrap. Which will be rt around 14-15 months. I just took a pic today and I noticed that I am about 1 or 1 1/2in from brastrap. Not all of my hair is there yet so I might be cutting when I relax in Feb to even it up to APL. But I was collar length on the sides and layered and my back barely touched my shoulder when I first started. Ive only had one bad setback but no big deal!!!!

Thanks that's my little Diva. I would kill for her closet. Thats right after I unravelled 3years old dreadlocs. I had to have a cut after. I was suffering with splits ends and mid shaft splits. I think I have cut most of them out now. Hoping to bsl or at least full apl by dec 08

#1 Contributor to Retention?
Started out at SL: August 2003
Hit BSL: April 2005
Hit MBL: June 2006
Hit WL: May 2007

MY #1 contributor to Retention was buns/protective styling, I also think consistent deep conditioning, no trims, and avoiding direct heat had plenty to do with retention.
