    I've been growing my hair for about a dozen years and it's about an inch from mid-calf when wet or 3 inches from mid-calf when dry. The ends are thin, but healthy.

    My last major cut was when I was 10, cut to just above my collar. Then somewhere around '89 or '90 I grew out the layers to one length and was just below waist. I had that ever famous fe-mullet (female mullet). I quit going to salons and my mother would trim the length for me. Now I do self trims every 3-4 months.

    Officially: I joined here in August but I started growing in May/June earlier that year.. so almost 2 years..

    But: I started out from a pixie cut 6 years ago - I had regretted the cut from BSL to pixie ever since I had it done - so after that I knew that I wanted to grow it loooooong..
    So actually 6 years (just no LHC )

    It'll be 3 years in July, and the ends are just past waist. I started from shoulder length (layered and razored).

    I've been seriously growing out my pixie hair since October 2004. Now three years later it reaches my shoulder and is slightly longer. Stretched it's almost waist.

    When I decided to grow once and for all, the longest layer in my hair was about 5 inches long. It has taken me 7 years, a lot of trimming (uneven growth), and a couple of major cut-backs to eliminate damage to get where I am today. The signature picture was taken less than a week ago.

    I started growing again after a chop to an inch or two short of waist 5 and half years ago. My hair is currently at thigh length. Though I've been growing from shoulder length with various chops, no shorter than to waist, since I was 6 years old.

    I'm curious about this too!

    I started growing almost 2 1/2 years ago (Maybe even 3 if I think about it. I believe I had stopped getting haircuts for a few months hoping to have enough hair to do an updo for my wedding in October 05. I made it, BTW!). In that time, I've netted about 6 inches of growth, from neck length to APL. I'm a trimmer. I also cut quite a bit lately due to damage, then after that cut I decided I wanted my layers cut back in. I'm hoping to keep much more of my growth from this point out.

    I've been actively growing since January 2007. At that point I was at roughly 28", I'm now at 34". That is with trimming approximately 3" during that time.

    I had started growing out my pixie hair when I started my last job. That was about 4 1/2 years ago.

    I wasn't really paying attention to the growth at the time. If I had to do it again, I would find it hell considering how obsessed I am with it now!!
