Shoulder Length 2012 Challenge

Who is the longest serving member on this hair challenge? I think I might be. I've been on a SL challenge for 3 years and I'm only just collar bone. I wasted 9 months with texlaxed hair, but now I'm fully natural. I am convinced it will take me 3 years to get to full shoulder length.
Anyway else feel the same?

I think I was stuck at NL/SL for a while before becoming natural. I am now on this HHJ and it does seem like I'm one of the slow growers :(

I'm still texlaxed and my hair is finally growing thick and magnificently since I found a stylist that knows how to trim it properly. I am no longer collar bone length...in fact my longest layers are already touching shoulder length and my other layers are quickly following suit. I wish you the best in getting to shoulder length soon YaaAsantewaa.

I found that when I did too much to my hair, it wasn't growing healthily......it was always breaking and filled with single strand knots all over the place but that was due in part to a couple of stylists that simply did not know how to trim my hair properly. I do very little to my hair now and I find that it is growing much much better than in the last 2.5 years.

I've been going for SL since 2007 when I joined lhcf. Can't get past collar either. I realized that I HAVE to trim and stay moisturized and proteined. I take MSM once or twice a week and use MTG. I wash and go, twist-outs but mostly wigs. I'm getting there even after a major mishap a couple months ago. I believe I might make it by the skin of my teeth. I won't flatiron and check till after Christmas.
