I hope my eyes arent playing tricks on me and this is the real deal. If it is, then I hit the jackpot!! I've had my braids in for a week and during this week, I been Surging faithfully (2x a day) and taking UltraNourish Hair and MSM. I also added a few new things to hopefully accelerate my hair growth: Amino Acids, L-Cysteine, Sulfur 8 and WGO. And now, a week later, it looks as if I've had my braids in for 3-4 weeks. Noticing this, I decided to measure their hair growing from under the cornrows and it was about a hair away (LOL) from being 1/2". I cant believe this and its only been one week!!!! I know for a fact that my cornrows arent loose because my braider (my mother) braids tight, but not to the point of causing damage. I'll definately be examining my hair more closely this week to see if it increases over the 1/2" mark!!! If this keeps up, I'll be back to my original length of bra-clasp in no time!!! Oh by the way, I posted pictures in my album in the LHCF photo gallery. They arent the best pictures of the cornrows, but you'll get the idea. Happy Hair Growing!!
