Marking my spot. It's never good to make those claims without pictures round these here parts. Congrats on the growth spurt though.

I've never really paid much attention to the amount of growth as in inches or cm. I normally go by body parts. At ear, past ears, touching shoulder, etc. my stylist always gave me a trim at every relaxer and I relaxed at 6 weeks faithfully. I was cut from full SL to about a 1/2 inch below EL on the sides now the longest side is touching my collarbone. I really wish I was at work and could post comparison pics! It's driving me crazy.

Am i going crazy? I don't get what you are saying If you measured on 2/17 and then again in March that would mean you got that growth in just a few weeks, which would mean that you got even more growth when added to your relaxer date.

I'mma sit back and let you finish, but just wanted to say that i'm lost

[QUOTE=Je Ne Sais Quoi;15408733]So, is it 5 weeks or

I had a very nice member to inbox me. Thanks for the advice!!!! *I'm not trying to cause a small riot or any confusion. I live drama free, or at least try to. Let me give you my back story in a nut shell:*
I've always had long thick hair
My beloved favorite aunt was a professional stylist and my hairdresser since I was a child*
She lost her battle with breast cancer in April 2011
Before her departure she was too sick to work and I was forced to find a new HS
I'd been going to the new HS every week for the last 2years
I believe she got upset when I stopped coming every week and intentionally damaged my hair during the last relaxer she gave me (10/2011)
I would normally get my aunts advice about my hair, but........
I began researching online and found LHCF
I lurked for awhile then joined and subscribed
I searched threads and looked for ways to restore my hair
My hair was too damaged and I opted for a short cut (angled bob) (1/27)
I loved the bob, but it's not a long term style for me, so I*
Decided to search the board for ways to enhance hair growth
Topicals (mega tek, etc): *not for me, I *decided on vitamins and supplements

I began taking vitamins (prenatal & biotin ) and supplements (MSM) on 2/6
On 2/17 I decided to begin a hair journal. So I measured and recorded my length
Okay, let's jump to today: New growth feels unusually thick for 5 weeks (last relaxer 1/27) so I decide to measure again. From root to line of demarcation is about 1 to 1.5 inches so I added that to my measurements from 2/17. So, thats why I said: I THINK I grew 1 to 1.5 inches in a month. It's been one month since I started taking the vitamins and supplements, and five weeks since my last relaxer. I wish I could post pics using my iPad.*

So you measured and started taking the vitamins on 2/17...Today you measured again and saw 1.5-2 inches of growth.

Average growth is .5 a month so 2 inches in 2 weeks is amazing. Count yourself very lucky.

That's what's confusing people.
You can't add your new growth numbers to your measurements from 2/17 if you actually relaxed two weeks prior. Doing it that way attributes your growth in the full five weeks to that space of time between 2/17 and today.

In fact, you shouldn't add your new growth to your measurements at all, honestly. If you're gonna measure your hair that way, you should always measure from root to tip to get an accurate picture of what's happening. Only measuring the new growth and adding it to old measurements makes the assumption that you have 100% retention, which might not be the case.

I also measured from the root to the line of demarcation and it's from 1 to 1 1/2 inches is various locations.*

Anyway, after searching the threads and seeing what was working for others I decided what I was willing to try and not try. I believe that hair growth is stimulated from within so I'm not interested in topicals so I decided on vitamins.

Long story short: daily I intake 5000 mcg of Biotin; 1500 mg of MSM; and 1 Walgreen's brand prenatal vitamin. I also drink at least 70 oz of water daily. Pretty simple I think.

Side note: I'm new to the board and I know pics are nice to look at, but um I wouldn't make statements about something as trivial as hair if it weren't true.
I'm really sending my thanks and a shout out to the positive ladies who have provided me with this valuable information. Before coming to this board I'd never heard of MSM and didn't know Biotin could be effective for hair growth. I just thought it helped your nails. My post is to ENCOURAGE others that may visit this site to know that the information posted here is valuable and worth trying.

Even so... from root --> line of demarcation being 1-1.5 inches; I think thats awesome. Congratulations OP I dont think you would intentionally lie about your measurements. The background information can be a little difficult to understand.

Regardless good job and if you continue this way throughout the next few months; your progress will be amazing and hopefully we can see with pictures

Well OP it seems like you might have gotten over an inch or more in 5 weeks. Congratulations! If I could get that much and retain half of it I would be excited. I can't wait to see the pics. I think I am going to go back to taking my MSM. I'm not for sure if it helped with the growth but I do know that my ankle, knees and shoulder didn't hurt so much. LOL. Good luck.
