My hair actually gets to the top of my back in a high ponytail rather than my neck. It's probably been long enough for a while but I haven't been paying attention. I've also noticed that my high ponytails are a lot higher than they used to be.
And my boyfriend lays on my sleep braids. I'm used to having to control my hair when it's loose but the realisation that the braids could be dangerous too was new.
I'm a couple of inches from waist
