    Default waist to tailbone

    I saw there is a thread called bsl to waist, and I have been at waist for some time now and I'm heading towards tailbone. I wanted to ask people how long it took them and if you had to tweak your routine on your way. Just talk about the journey

    I am currently brushing hip with a U hemline. When the top of the U reaches hip, I plan to about 2 inches to thicken my hemline and hopefully get rid of a lot of the taper. Then I'll be on my way to TB!!
    My current rountine is WO. I've been doing that now for 5 months and really like it. I'm only shedding about 10-20 hairs a day since I started it. I also henna every 2 months.

    The last time I cut my hair was January 2006. But before the cut I was at BSL with long layers and I wanted it all one length to grow out. So I had it cut to shoulder length. So from shoulder to hip in 2.5 years isn't bad.

    I've passed my waist area and I think I'm solidly in hip range these days. I haven't done any changes to my routine but I do wear it up most of the time.

    I passed waist in november or so, and now I am at hip... I actually planned to stay here for a while and thicken my ends, but they don't look that bad, so I think I'll just let it grow... I hope I get down to tailbone until december.

    I've been at waist for a while, too, and my goal is tailbone. My hair has recently become wavier and looks shorter than waist , but stretched it's definitely around hip area. That's my longest layer and fairytale ends, though, as I'm growing from a shoulder length layered cut without trimming. The shortest layer is currently past BSL.

    To reach tailbone I need another 5-6 inches, which I hope I'll get by summer 2009. Since BSL I've had slightly less than average growth speed. Maybe some supplements will speed things up - I've heard good things about kelp and horsetail. I tried miconazole (Daktarin) but haven't had spectacular results.

    Recently, I've discovered I really need to put my hair up the majority of the time, especially when out of the house. OK, I might wear my hair down for a night out, but on the way there (and back) it *has* to be safely contained. Otherwise it can tangle badly, not to mention get caught in straps, doors, elbows... I also braid for sleeping.

    Now, I hope that someone who has actually reached tailbone will reply to your question, Isilme! I just wanted to join the W2T crowd...

    hahaha I'll do another 'this is my journey' post.

    Like Jel I tried miconizol and had no results from it that I could tell and decided it was too much of a PITA to continue it. I might try it again since I was using it during a growth stall. I was at waist for probably 3 months with no growth, finally it started growing when I wasn't looking and now I'm past the top of my hip bones. When my hair is pulled straight it has about 2 or 3" before tail bone.

    My shortest layer is my 'bangs' that are at bsl then I have a few layers in between. I'm wanting to get to tail bone wavy then start trimming about an inch every two months to get rid of the layering, though I kind of like the U shape my hair has so I may keep that.

    I know I wear my hair up a lot, and for an evening out when I want my hair down depending on how wet my hair is or how long it's been since I washed I might keep it down on the ride to and fro since putting it up may disrupt the wave. I've found that if I wash in the morning and it's totally dry by the time I go out in the evening I can put it up and it won't mess with the waves, but the slightest moisture and my hair takes on the bun waves. If it's been a day since I washed my hair no matter if it's damp or dry if I put it up it'll take on the bun waves - but usually by second day my waves are looking 'messy' so bun waves tend to be preferable.

    You have the most perfect U shape in that pic Euphony! I've been trying to get a nice V going but I can't seem to get it to where I'm happy with it.

    My original goal was tailbone but as I get closer and closer I'm pondering shooting for classic. We'll see.

    I'm on my way from waist to TB as well I was really confused about where my waist actually is for quite a while, I thought I wasn't at waist yet but turns out I'm already an inch or two past it. I guess TB will be a bit easier to notice Happy growing!

    I was solidly TB until this weekend, when I trimmed off 5" of wispy, see-through ends. Now I'm at hip when stretched and waist+ when curly. My routine was and still is mostly CO with an occasional S when I think it's necessary. I've been using either conditioner mixed with a few drops of jojoba, or coconut oil as a leave-in. I'm trying harder to protect my ends...they were uneven before mostly because of old layering and previous big sheds, but I would like to keep them in good condition and relatively even as they grow back. That means switching from a sleep braid to a sleep bun and being more vigilant about wearing my hair up. The only other difference is that my hair doesn't get caught in my pants anymore!

    ETA that it took about 9 months to grow from waist to TB, with an average growth rate of 0.75"/month and no trims.
