Here are some of the questions I get asked the most, and what my answers have been. This way you can get your answers immediately, without having to wait on me. And you never know, you might find answers to a few questions you didn't even know you had yet.

*This is still a work in progress. I'm continuing to add many more questions, and we are still ironing out a few quirks. But we wanted to make this available as soon as possible.

There are several ways to choose the question(s) you'd like answered:

How long did it take you to grow your hair?
It's taken me about eleven to twelve years (from the last time I used a relaxer) to grow hair that is now down to my hips. I grew out the chemicals for about a year and a half before I did the Big Chop.

Hair grows about 1/2 inch a month or so, which means you can estimate about 6 inches of growth a year. Mine seems to grow about 5 or so inches a year. It's funny, when my hair was short I used to take a yardstick and hold it behind my ear and try to imagine what it would look like to have hair that was 24'' long or more—I couldn't even imagine being able to stretch my hair down to my stomach. And here I am, years later, and my hair is down to my thighs, longer than I ever thought it would get, all because I finally got rid of those chemicals and stopped damaging it.
