So it's no secret that I've lost my blogging mojo in the past couple of months. Idk what kind of phase I'm going through in life where I just do. not. care. about much of anything! I think my brain is
But I have been really hair-down lately (down about my hair). I feel like I'm not making the progress that I want to make! I've always known that I was a "slow grower" with a love for the scissors and blunt ends (oh year, and I have a touch of hair-rexia...) Because of that, I'll never be the girl who ends the year with 6, 7, 8" of retained length. It's just not gonna happen (short of maybe a strict GA and PS reggie...).
But today, I did a comparison of where my hair was at about this time last year and where it is today. I was not happy. At. ALL.
Here's the pic:

Clearly, there's some progress, but I guess to me, it's not enough! After measuring it (thanks to the stripes on the sweater) the difference is about 4". That equals 1/3" per month. -___-
While I'm thankful for every inch that I get (hey, that's 4" closer to BSL...) I'm still wishing that I could get that "average" of 6" in a year... without having to sacrifice wearing my hair the way I want to in order to PS and/or use greasy/oily growth aids.
Slow growers, what are some non-invasive ways that you increase your growth? Or how do you cope with your slower-than-average hair growth? How do you stay encouraged?
