    I remember when I commented saying that I was planning on going natural due to a bad perm and you encouraged me to do it! (I big chopped in June. No transition, instead of getting a touch up, I cut it all off!)
    Seeing your growth is amazing and exciting!
    You give me hope that my hair can and will grow from it's super shortness!

    Your hair has grown so much in 5 months, can't wait to see what it will look like at a year :)

    Keep it up! This is such good progress and it's a great inspiration since I chopped 2 weeks ago. Looks like you've retained length really well.

    HI, I have a QUESTION…I recently big chopped and was curious about the benefits or disadvantage braids or Senegalese twists could have on your hair if aiming toward growth? Thanks for the guidance!
