    Default Trimmers Measure-In

    - I figured that we needed a new thread for the trimmers to track their growth and trims - Just like we had before LHC went down.. I hope Spidermom doesn't mind me starting them up again^^

    Luckily I saved my old "data" - so I guess I'll just pick up where I left of..


    2006:
    - 1st of August: about 27/28”
    - 1st of October 2006: 29"
    - 1st of December 2006: 30.5" (mostly S&D until now)

    2007:
    -------------- waist stall, so no trims ---------------------

    - 1st of April: 32.3"
    - 1st of May: 33" (+ 0,7") (+ in April: trimmed 1 cm)
    - 1st of June: 33.46" (+ 0,46") (+ in May: trimmed about 1,5 cm)
    - 1st of July: 34.25" (+ 0,79")
    - 1st of August: 34.25" (+ 0") (+ in July: trimmed about 1,15 cm)
    - 1st of September: 34.6" (+ 0,35")
    - 1st of October -------------------not measuring-----------------------
    - 1st of November ----------------not measuring-----------------------
    - 1st of December: 36,2" (- in average: + 0,5" of growth in Sep, Oct and Nov)

    2008:
    - 1st of January: 36,6" (+ 0,4")
    - 1st of February: 37,4” (+ 0,8” thanks to Monistat)
    - 1st of March: 37” (+ 0,6”) (+ in February trimmed about 2,5 cm/1”)
    - 1st of April: 37,4” (+0,4”)

    I've been trimming, well "dusting" trimming once a month for the past 3 months. My hair went from 18" then. My measurement is 21 1/2" today!!! Hurrah!! My ultimate goal for this year is 35"... we'll see what happens.

    i trimmed 1cm in dec, and again i will trim 1cm in May. I don't really make that many measurments of my hair! But it propbably wouldn't matter if i join as my trims are pretty far apart.

    I trimmed 1/4 inch off last Sunday and did a microtrim on my face framing layers as well. It has been more than 6 months since I last trimmed it.

    I got about 3 inches trimmed off a month ago and as of today it's 32.5 inches long. I have no idea what my goal is, right now it's at my natural waist so I will probably let it get back to the top of my pants again. Once it starts growing longer than that, it begins to drive me a little batty.

    Hehe, last Saturday I trimmed of 10", taking me to a pixie cut. Then I got sad. Then I found TLHC . Now I am growing my hair back! But I will have regular trims (like 1/2" twice a year and occasional S&D), to maintin its beautiful current condition.

    Default measure check-in

    trimmed 1/2" today. cut bangs back 2", they are at my chin. these grow so much faster because I keep the dry ends at bay. wish I wasn't so scared to do that to my length I might gain some length for doing that. but for now until I guess next year will be 1/2" every two months. I know after a while my ends really thin out and look too wispy and my wurls don't form right. it is like they need the blunt cut to look decent.

    measured length today at 26 3/4".

    I only trim once or twice a year, but that's not the same as never trimming, so I guess I belong in this thread?

    For the record, my last trim was in November. I'm going until at least next month before the next one, but ideally I would like to make it a full year between trims. I do plan to get myself some hair scissors for a good S&D, but I keep putting off going to the store.

    April 22, 2008: 29.125 inches
    May 17, 2008 29.5 inches -- I got my husband to measure it for me this time, so I'm hoping that will allow for more accuracy.
    June 21, 2008: 30.25 inches
    July 23, 2008: 30.75 inches (I am FINALLY getting a trim next week and cannot freaking wait)

    I definitely don't mind. I'm still a trimmer, but I don't measure any more. It made me too paranoid about "losing length", so I put off trims, and the condition of my ends went downhill. No more of that!
