Yes this is the thread for me. I am trying to get most of my ends the same length, i.e. 25", before letting it grow longer. My plan is to trim back to 25" every few months and in an ideal world those stupid shorter layers will finally catch up. I am beginning to think it'll never happen. They're only 2" shorter than the rest but it's taking forever.
I keep pushing my 'yes! I can let it grow now' date back further and further into 2009 because my hair doesn't exist in a vacuum (unfortunately...any ideas?!) and those poor fried/highlighted/blowdried ends just crap out at a certain point.
Next trim I guess will be in Dec sometime. I hate cutting the healthy bottom layer just to accommodate my all-one-length dream but I feel like I'm cheating myself if I let it all grown down like a knotty rat's nest.
