    You can aid the process by:

    eating eating healthy, drinking plenty of water, exercising moderately

    S and Ding regularly

    Trims every 3 to 4 months

    Avoiding blow fryers, straighteners, hot curlers, bleach, curling irons

    Using gentle shampoos and conditioners will aid you in your quest.

    HOW you use your wide tooth comb and boar bristle brush will make all the difference in your hair health.

    Shampooing, conditioning and rinsing properly are important.

    Many of the ladies here have achieved their beautiful locks by various methods...but the one thing they all share is being patient during the growing process. You need a boatload of patience and tlc to grow really long hair.

    I agree. A lot of patience indeed. I will go months without trimming because if I take an inch off....,it's a setback in the growing process. At 45 inches now....,I have put away my trimming scissors.

    Fingertip length with FTE and still growing. Still thin ends due to hair loss issues. But hair loss stopped in September 13 after 20 months

    Think of it this way - every hair has a terminal length (or rather, more accurately, a finite amount of time spent growing before shedding). Unlike some animals, humans don't have synchronised hair cycles - each hair follicle goes through its cycle at a different phase to the others. But, if you have a big shed that is out of the ordinary (e.g. illness, after pregnancy) it will synchronise those hair follicles (at least for a little while) by re-setting them all to the shed part of the cycle.

    So, you may have your longest hairs - which are not terminal, as they've had length trimmed off them over the years. If those have reached their shed time, you may appear to stall - or even get slightly shorter hair - until the other hairs catch up to that length. The big shed last year might enhance this, by changing your head of hair from a continuum of lengths due to asynchronous growth cycling to a large section that is synchronised.

    In short: give it 6-12 months and if you're still stalled then it might be a case of terminal length, not just funny growth dynamics.
    Thanks Panth...I think that very well could be the case.

    Thank you


    I think my hair might barely be thigh length now. It went from 43 inches to 44 within a month (the last time I measure it was in February and I just measured it today and it has grown since then!).

    It has been really warm for March here (practically summer weather!) will that have any positive effects on my hair growth? I think I read somewhere that warm weather and sunlight stimulates hair growth.

    Currently: Classic Next Goal: Knee length Final Goal: terminal length

    I think the warm weather stimulates hair growth. Mine seems to slow down during the winter and speeds up during summer.

    Last year I went through a heavy shedding that worried me. It stopped as fast as it came. I believe some of my hair had reached it's terminal length. With all the trimmings I have done, theres just no way to know how long my hair will grow.

    My locks are going through a MAJOR growth spurt...it's almost scarey!
    All of a sudden, I'm about an inch and one half past classic!
    I've got more new growth than I know what to do with.

    Sitting on my hair has started to become annoying, and when I move it forward or lift it up before I sit down, one of my friends rolled their eyes.
    I'm not trying to be a show-off, I'm just trying to manage my hair. Seldom do I put it in a up-do, but I guess I will have to start doing it more often...I don't know.

    How do you all manage your hair on a daily basis as far as doing things to keep from sitting on it, getting it caught in things, etc.

    I have found out that "Waist, Butt,and Classic" hair lengths are totally different animals.

    I need to take a class in "Classic Length Hair & Beyond 101"

    A bit past classic and on my way to knee! We'll see if I get there. It has taken me 12 years to get this far.
