August length check and hair growth challenge update

Well hello there gorgeous, bet you’ve been waiting patiently for this post. I got you thinking the challenge was something of the past, didn’t I! Not at all, I am most certainly watching and listening. I’m kinda like a stalker but way less crazy. I hope. 
Anyway, on to the length check. Before I reveal my growth can I just say that you all have been amazing! I am sure Bay Rum and Bergamot Essence has never sold as fast as it has in forever. How many of you have come across the out of stock sign when shopping for the mixture? 

Right, let’s get on with it then…

Length Check

             July             Aug

Front:    30cm         32cm
    Top:      28.5cm      30.5cm
    Side:     28.5cm       30.5cm
  Back:    25cm           27cm

2cm growth all round once again (remember, my hair grows at 1cm per month when I am not on the mixture). I seriously doubted any significant growth before actually measuring my hair. I think the reason for this is because I haven’t really been using it as often as I should, and the shrinkage game is seriously real. I am not even going to attempt covering that up. You will experience shrinkage. You will also experience softer, healthier, shinier hair. The health of your hair should be your ultimate goal. Let’s not forget that. 

Shameless car selfies because, why not! 

And now for the fun part…
