Can someone explain how long six inches of hair is? I am transitioning and in the middle of my head i have about 1/2inch of growth. I always brush the front and back of my hair so i don't measure that. I started transitioning on September 4 2011. The reason of this post is because I want to rid of my relaxed hair by early September or latest November of 2012 (when I come for thanksgiving during freshman year of college) I am assuming and hoping I would have 6 inches of hair by then. What does 6 inches of natural hair look like? is it little or a lot? My hair also shrinks a lot btw.

It's kinda hard to tell because we have no clue of how much EXACTLY your hair shrinks up, in addition to other factors..
Guess you'll just have to measure and find out.

Grab a shed hair


Get a ruler


and measure


  No one can really give you the length it would be for you because of different body frames...

Ex. it may be upper to mid neck length one person but bottom neck length on to grazing shoulder on another

Try a mini chop in a very hidden part of your hair. Take some trimming scissors and trim the hair where your natural hair ends and see if that's as much hair that you want. If not, keep on growing!

okay, 6 inches of hair is 6 inches of hair.  It doesn't matter if it is straight or curly.   Confused
