How much have I retained in 9 months?
I retained approximately 4 inches of length outside of the 0.5 inch trim I did last August. From this, I can conclude that my hair grows 0.5 inches per month on average. Hopefully, I can get a better idea of how many inches my hair grows per year once I do a length check this July.
Based off my pictures and calculations, my goal of reaching WL by the end of this year is still very much doable since I am about 2.5-3 inches away from WL according to my length check shirt. If I go by the 0.5 inches/month rate, I should be grazing WL by the end of September or October (if I get a 0.5 inch trim this summer).
I do feel like my hair grows a little faster in the summer time so I might reach my goal just a LITTLE bit sooner. How about you? Do you experience faster hair growth in the summer? What is your goal length by the end of the summer based off your average monthly growth rate?
Make sure to take pictures and/or document your progress!
Take care and be blessed!
