First Length Check of the Year

While blow drying my hair this weekend (using the tension method + cool air), I had the sudden urge to see how long my hair has gotten. It’s been ages since I’ve done an official length check. No seriously, it has. I haven’t done one since June 2015, eek! You can check out that length check here.

Side note: I apologize for the fuzzy photo, I really should have wiped the lens on my phone before snapping. Anywho, I’ve been wearing my hair in either low buns, low ponytail puffs, twists outs, or protective styles for so long that I haven’t seen my hair fully stretched or straight in a while. I hadn’t even realized my hair had grown this much because of how much my hair shrinks but YAY! I’m getting back to my pre-transition length of waist length and I’m over THE moon y’all!

My length below is 3 years, 6 months, and about 2 weeks of growth (I keep countdowns and trackers for everything lol) and I’ve snipped about 3-4 inches off during that time. My goal is surpass my relaxed hair length and grow past waist length this year.

2017: waist length (or longer) or bust!

What’s your goal length for this year?


  1. Healthy Hair First And Bra Strap Length secondly.

  2. I want to reach waist length by the end of the year, now i’m a little bit past mid back length i think

  3. It’s just a kind of marathon!
    It’s very interesting to walk around your posts

  4. Oh.Forgot to mention that I drink lots of water and.I take a multivitamin ,iron,folic acid and Biotin.

  5. I am at bra strap length
    I have no specific goals for my hair except to keep it healthy.I wear protective styles and condition and
    seal ends everyday.I also use a protein treatment 3-4 days a month.

  6. Congratulations… My goal is Bra strap length

  7. Right now I want to reach arm pit length by the end of August. I’m full neck length and I only have 6 months and I have vitamins and a bunch of growth aides to use so I’m sure I’ll get there.

  8. I know this isn’t the time or place to discuss personal information, so sorry in advance. I haven’t checked in for a while. Did you complete law school? Are you practicing yet?

  9. Great growth Jen! Beautiful. My goals is to retain all six inches of growth this year. Question, I have been gone for a while, is the Wash Day Experience not active anymore?

  10. I’m at bra strap length, I’m natural, but I’ve been on a plateau for a couple months. Been protective styling and deep conditioning but nothing is changing 🙁 I want to reach below bra strap! Any ideas?

  11. Great growing! I’m currently transitioning and Im only 5 months post relaxer. So my goal is to have a good transition.
