    Hi,that's great that your hair grew that quickly. I just decided that I want to get rid of my perm.Any suggestions for someone just starting out. What type of hairstyles would you suggest. What about braids?

    It only took you three years to grow your hair to that length!? WoW!!!
    I've been natural since March of 2001. I have about 4 to 5 inches of nw growth (natural hair) at the moment.......I dont know if what I'm doing to it will make it grow even more ( I use this product called DOO GRO...it seems to be working) but Im wondering what do you use to get your hair to the length that it is and Im sure itll keep growing and growing. I dont want to get dreads or anything.......perming it doesnt do anything for me. The last time I had a perm it begin to fall out...not in chunks but i thought i had cancer or something.....i guess the women that was doing my hair for the longest didnt do a good job.....my friend that i sent her to even told me that when she did her hair, it started to fall out too.

    Sidiqat,

    First, thanks for stopping by our site. As for my hair growth, I kept my hair in protective styles like braids and cornrows for years in order to gain the length you see in the pictures. Additionally, i follow a reasonably balanced diet and I take a multivitamin. No heat styling, scarf at night, and condition, condition, condition. That's it!

    HTH!
