Congratulations! What a wonderful, pleasant surprise for you to have. For how long did you have your sew in? How many inches do you think you gained? What was your hair routine? I ask because you are surprised by the current length of your hair. That tells me that you started out with less length. AND it tells me that your hair routine is very, very effective. Whatever you are doing, keep it up. From the looks of things, I believe you could well below bra-strap, with full, thick ends by the end of 2018. Bravo on your great progress, @Prettyeyes !
