I wasn't quite sure where to put this, so mods, please feel free to move it to another section if you think it fits better somewhere else!
As most of you probably remember, I shaved my hair off to a number 3 back in March (4th of March to be exact!), so I thought it was about time I posted a pic of the growth progress.  I wasn't feeling like it had grown much until I brushed it all forward for the pic, as I usually wear it all brushed back from my face, which makes it a bit hard to see how much it has grown.  For those of you who may ask, I will post my hair routine, but I don't think my haircare routine is anything special, and I certainly don't think that any of these products can contribute to unusually fast growth, but they may contribute to the health and condition of your hair.  I've tried CO washing in the past, and I didn't really see any difference, so I do use shampoo.  I don't consciously avoid silicones, but very few of the products I use have any cones in them.  So this is what I do:  I wash when my hair needs it, which can be anything from every day sometimes (particularly during the heatwaves when I feel like my scalp sweats alot) to every 3-4 days.  I alternate between using Lush's trichomania shampoo bar and Lush's curly wurly shampoo.  For conditioners, I alternate between Lush's Big solid conditioner, and Lush's Coolaulin and American Dream (can you tell I'm a massive fan of Lush products?!).  I don't use many styling products, just 5-6 drops of 100% pure argan oil smoothed onto my hair when it's wet for frizz control, and occasionally (usually on days when I don't wash and feel my hair needs a bit more definition) use Lush's R&B or Shine On.  I don't use heat at all, just comb it back from my face with a wide toothed comb, whack on an elasticated hairband to keep it neat and let it air dry.  So here are the pics.  First is just after shaving, on March 4th, and 2nd is today, six months later (excuse the red face/no makeup pic - I'd just gotten out of a hot bath!).

Wow Mindi... that is super cool to see!  It's nice to take progress photos when you're changing anything.  It can seem like it's taking forever or you're not making progress at all until you compare it to the before photo.  :D

Wow :o When I shaved my head (although from completely clean-shaven), I took regular progress pics and at the 6 month mark mine was only just thick enough to spike up, jealous :( Yours looks great though :)

Wow it grew a lot! Its such a great feeling when you have that moment of, "wow! My hair is getting longer!" Im jealous!
Always remember to consider what your hair is going to feel like after processing it BEFORE you do it! Test strands, treatments/oils are important when it comes to hair, but the most important thing is patience!
