    Thumbs up from APL to BSL come grow with me!

    okay, i posted something similar on the old LHC, so here we go again!

    Im back to 22" after cutting in a blunt hem and equaling up my longest layer, just one layer in the back to go! I will probably even things up again, once it has caught up.

    BSL for me is 27" (bottom of strap) so come on, post here with all your frustrations and milestones.

    We will all get there!

    Hmm .. I measure BSL as the bottom of my shoulder blades, or 23", because I'm impatient and if I measured to the bottom of my strap I'd probably get fed up at not reaching a goal in so long that I'd cut. My longest layer is now at 23", so I'm at 'can-I-call-this-BSL', but I won't really feel like I'm at BSL until it's at least an inch or two longer.

    BSL is about 27 inches for me. Since I'm starting over again I've decided not to measure because it can be discouraging if I hit a no grow month. I'm going by milestones. BSL is my main goal.

    A new beginning.

    I don't wear a bra, so I wouldn't know what BSL would be.

    But I think I'm winning our race jojo!

    I think BSL is 26" for me. And I think I'm at 22ish" right now; lost my measuring tape but I don't want to measure until April anyway. I obsess over it too much.

    yay! there are a few of us going for BSL or MBL in shadow walkers case! (the race is still on...biotin at the ready shadow..mwahaha!)

    I'm not trimming until August 8th the moroccan calender thingy me bob! says its a good day for growth, okay maybe im slightly mad for wanting to try it but hey what have i got to lose?

    I think we should all post a monthly picture up too, for comparing how much we have grown, what do you all think?.

    My camera charger is broke ( darn dog thought she would eat it..ggggrrrr) so ive had to order another which will hopefully be here Monday.

    Okay im off to bed now so happy growing everybody xxx

    I am 1.5" above BSL, and just patiently waiting till I get there. No special things that I am doing save for my normal routine.; take my vitamins, eat my two bananas a day, and pamper the hair.

    My hair is between APL and BSL, as it's been for years. Last measurement (Feb?) was 25.5; "Full" BSL - where it covers, not just touches, the strap - will be 27". But those longest ends are still very wispy and see through - hard to count.

    I'd like to trim again but I think I am going to measure once more to see how much growth I've got per month; I'm not very good at being consistent with such "boring" tasks but I know it is for the best so I am trying to discipline myself.

    For me, when my hemline is more even and at 27" (rather than just the "point" of the "deep V" hitting 27) I will be at BSL. It is a long way to go, it seems, but my hair is still longer than it has ever been!

    I'm still teaching myself to wear it up more (and like it!) and focusing on moisturizing but also washing more so that it looks good down and I can enjoy it.
    Feb 2013, solid BSL again but shedding. Wondering if this is really terminal length. Hairtype 1b/2b, F/M, ii
