That's the longest I've gone natural so far. About shoulder length. This fall will be my first time making it to 3 years natural. Can't wait.

Great thread.
I just did my BC #2 on 1.1.14 so I'm back to my 2009 starting point...
Looking forward to growing it back out as a rededicated natural. LOL.

I don't know cuz I never did a big chop that resulted in a twa.

I accidentally transitioned while wearing weave for 3 or so years. I missed out on that whole keeping track of my growth experience.

2 years=12inches for me. That falls to apl on my body.

Always measure your growth in inches to figure out if you're retaining and don't use other peoples bodies as a guide, just your own.

I measured mine all around (in small twists) and it's about 9 1/2 to 10 inches since my last relaxer. Except the very front is like 6 inches. Cry I'm not sure where I went wrong.

before a year hit I went from slightly more than twa to original length (with perm) witch was a little pass shoulder....

I've been making great progress so far after a year and some change.
Hopefully I can get to APL by next OctoberLOL

It was a pretty decent length...maybe a few inches from my bra strap once it was flat ironed straight.

I eventually hit full BSL, but I had a setback last year. I accidentally hacked the end part of one of my braids while taking out my sew in...I still haven't decided how I'm gonna handle that .

I've just been weaving it up since, pretending it never happened lol.

Between 14 and 16in when it was stretched, that was around APL for me.

I came from a shaved head.
And I kept cutting so I'm not sure.

Now I'm past APL near bsl I think

I can't wait until my two year mark. Im currently 10 months post relaxer and I have about 5 inches of new growth. My goal is waist length stretched.

I'm going on 4 years natural and I have this issue. My hair is around mbl ( what qualifies as officially mbl confuses me but it's a good 2-3" past my bra strap), yet the front bang area of my hair isn't even trying to catch up. It's been at least 3 inches shorter than the rest of my hair ever sense I started growing my hair out But to answer the original question, I was right at apl at the two year mark.
