Collage of 12 Month Difference in Hair Color

I was uploading pictures in the archived section and realized I took pictures of my hair on December 17th 2004 and December 17th 2005. Deep huh? I remember taking all those pictures since getting locked and thinking, "am I being a bit narcissistic?" But regardless of my reasons, I'm glad I did because I can see clearly how my hair has progressed and how the dye has contracted over the past year. I'll be adding my six month pictures and perhaps compare them to the year and a half. I know that will show a big difference in growth, texture and the whole nine. Well, glad I have my trusty Picasa2 Collage and pictures to share.

The photo of my in maroon was taken last year and of course the one in white two weeks ago. You can see how much new growth I have by less dye showing up. As I've said before, I am glad I dyed my hair, but I really believe if I hadn't I'd have my "ponytail" by now. Oh well!

These photos are great points of comparison. How long do you think locks grow in a year? My guess is 4", since hair grows about 6" a year but is coiled up in the locks.

If I weren't so scissor-happy, I would know this!

I didn't do any research on my own, but I saw a quote by Sandy in the yahoo group.

She said: Actually the normal average rate of human hair growth is 1/2 inch per month. Our hair is
constantly growing but we don't see any increase in length because of breakage.
