length check (28 1/2 inches)

LENGTH CHECK
Here comes another belated, coveted post! The last time I gave a length check, it was July and my hair was 25 1/2 inches long after getting my roots touched and giving myself a trim at home. Five months later, November 2014, I went to Hair IB to get my hair touched up again. The first thing I noticed was that my ends were much fuller than the stringy spikes that were there before the time my hair got straightened.

When I got home and measured, I was 28 1/2 inches! In five months I'd usually grow 2 inches, I got an extra inch because I was leisurely doing the GHE method the last month. The picture below is my hair right after coming home from my Japanese straightening touch-up, no trimming. Now it's completely official and I'm claiming it, my ends have recovered from the hydroxide relaxed to Japanese straightening transitioning.
Still, about a month later I decided to trim. When I said I wasn't trying to grow out my hair until my relaxed hair grows out, I meant it. I trimmed back to about 26 inches, forgot to measure and record after so I'm honestly unsure. Right now, I think the majority of my JHS hair is about 15 inches down.

Looks pretty! How often did you do the GHE last month?

Thank you! I was very leisure about it this round, I believe I did it about 2 times a week.

Hi Yahya, I'm new to your website :) I'm curious to know what your hair type/texture was before japanese hair straightening? And also whether it stays as permanently straight once air dried and several months after treatment? Sorry for so many questions I'm just considering Japanese straightening myself and would like to know whether it would achieve poker straight results as promised :D Thanks, Marcelle

I'm actually not sure of my exact hair texture, but I know it's in the 3b to 4a range, and the back is curlier. The month after a Japanese straightening your pin straight hair does get a little more body--for the better if you ask me, and that it. It stays like that permanently, there's no reverting several months in or anything.
