16 Months: Is My Hair Growing?

This is me looking chic if I say so myself. My hair needs to be retightened.
This is a beautiful book charting the history of locks worldwide in mainly black and white pictures. A great read and available from Amazon.

This is my latest hair dye. Nice 'n Easy number 108 in Natural Golden Auburn.

Here are the results. Freshly washed, tightened and dyed.

I cut the ends off my hair resulting in less flyaway hair.

This is an evening style.

I am now 16 months into having Sisterlocks(TM) and I am wondering if my hair is growing. This is me prior to my retightening.
I love my hair texture and also the colour but the rate of growth appears to have slowed when compared to other ladies blogs and fotkis.
I suppose I will just have to have more patience....
Please dont copy.

Looks like it's growing to me. It's a lot fuller too. It's hard to see it on ourselves since we are looking at our hair everyday whereas someone else who is not seeing it on a daily basis can see the difference. Lovely locs sis!

I know what you mean. Sometimes it looks like it isn't growing but it is.Your locs have thickened a lot and I can see growth. Weeks ago, my locs were feeling hard and crunchy- suddenly today they look very full and feel soft. I've been spritzing with aloe vera juice peppermint lavender jojoba oil and orange water. I always put a 1/4tsp baking soda in my shampoo too.

Kitty i like this last picture, personnally i always prefer my hair some two weeks after re tight...its more versatile.
I dont see my growth but i certainly feel it!
You cant see it, you must be able to feel the difference??
Compare photos and you will surely see the difference after a wee while...(speaking from experience)!!

Thanks a lot for your support you are right I do have to look and compare the pictures. I shall give the baking soda in the shampoo a try to see how that works.
