Currently: mid-thigh length (49") Next Goal: Knee length Final Goal: terminal length
Ends are brushing knee when wet!
I'm growing out to terminal because I want to test my family genes. My great grandmother holds the record for growing hair to floor. My oldest sister grew hair to her ankles before she cut it back to waist when she gave birth to her first child. Plus, I'm the odd one in my family for having wurly hair. I've encountered some people who told me that growing curly hair to extreme lengths is not possible. Interesting thread!

holothuroide: "ETA: I have not noticed because apparently I am dense and unobservant. I did a member search for people with fine hair that is currently at knee and got 7 results. You can do searches like that yourself and find people with your hair type that are at your goal and send them a message asking them what their secrets are. EndETA"
Thanks! I don't think I can search members quite yet, because my account is still limited. I didn't know I could search for hair types though. That's awesome- thanks!
Stop! Shoulder time! (July 7)
I had to trim my hair yesterday... the split ends were getting drastic. I always get so sad to trim but as far as I know it's slightly neccessary for proper healthy hair.
I have been concerned about hair that touches the floor once sitting (my guess is knee length or slightly past). Plus, if it is loose and ankle length and you stoop or bend for ANY reason it would touch the floor. My hair touches the floor now if I lean forward to pick something up or if I sit on the floor, l which I often do in the library when I am looking on the bottom two shelves. Hair on the floor is cringe material for me. The thought of it getting stepped on is almost unbearable. LOL. It can always be piled in the lap when sitting.
The decision to continue to term will have to be re-made continually after new hallmarks are reached. I still have not decided to grow to term, though. For now I am lightheartedly shooting for knee with my next real benchmark being FTL.
