Length Check!

Happy Sunday!

So, I was in the process of twisting my hair up as a protective style since I’m currently going through this postpartum shedding phase.

I thought to myself, “This is a good time to do a length check.”

The last length check I did was back in July. Unfortunately, I didn’t take pictures back then (smh) just recorded my numbers:

July 2018

  • Front- 8 inches
  • Back- 7 inches
  • Left side- 6.5 inches
  • Right side- 7 inches
  • Middle- 6 inches

Moving on to my current length.

I used a 12 inch ruler for this length check.

October 2018

  • Front- 11 inches
  • Back- 10.5 inches
  • Left side- 10 inches
  • Right side- 10 inches
  • Middle- 9 inches

The front of my hair has always been the longest and the middle the shortest.

I think I got some pretty good growth for just 3 months. What do you think?

  1. Wow that’s awesome growth + length retention. I’m currently growing back my hair after a tapered cut, but I need to find the discipline to protective style like I once did years ago. Mini twists were my go-to.

    1. Thank you. I love mini twist. Very versatile!

  2. […] check out my recent length check to see how much more my hair has […]

  3. Wow! Thats awesome. Right now I’m you in July and hoping to get to where you are now (October). What would you say helped you maximize growth and length retention?

    1. I kept my hair in braids and used Wild Growth Oil consistently every 2 days. I also have started back taking my prenatal vitamins as well. I know this hair journey can be very rough 😩. Good luck

      1. Thanks. I plan on wearing cornrows for 4 weeks at a time and taking multivitamins as well. Hopefully that works 🙂

      2. It should! Cornrows have been my best friend when growing my hair
