    Default Most annoying growth stage?

    Perhaps I am biased, since I'm BSL, but this has to be the most annoying stage of growing your hair EVER!

    It's everywhere, and nowhere I want it to be, and always miles from waist. Right now it's doing some weird curl thing, sitting on top of my chest looking like it's going to attack my face. Everyday I think when it's longer, it will be easier to manage, it will fall flat, it will be easier to tuck away... I think for me APL was the most manageable stage. It was long enough to pull back and short enough to stay looking groomed, when curled or straight.

    What is/was your most annoying stage when growing out your hair? Bonus points for awkward pictures.

    Hahahah for me it's anything shorter or equal to shoulder :B People say wavy hair doesn't bounce up, YEAH, RIGHT! I remember looking like a sheep most of the time!! And also there were the splits, it seemed like each time I'd cut one, ten more would appear, ugh.

    I've never had hair shorter than collarbone or longer than just past tailbone (where I am now). For me the most awkward stage was between APL and BSL. This is the part of my back where it curves out instead of in and I have thick big wurly/curly hair. Combine the two and you get hair that's wider than me! When my hair got past BSL and nearing waist, where my back starts to curve in, my hair lay more flat. Collarbone was pretty awkward too, since my hair wasn't weighted down yet and it gave me an awful triangle head. Pretty much past waist everything's been fine.

    I'm in my awkward stage right now, actually. It's not long enough to tie back and just long enough to stick straight up in strange angles. Around 4 inches for me.
    I used to have virgin hair, then I took Lawsonia inermis to the keratin.

    Right when it was brushing shoulder. Barely long enough to tie back and hairs poking into my shoulders all the time.

    For me, it's from shoulder to bsl, my hair just doesn't want to behave nicely. Above shoulder I don't mind heat styling as would have been regulairly cutting my hair, after BSL I esily do some messy buns/get my hair up and out of the way if it bothers me. Between (where I am right now, ugh) it just drives me nuts, and imo does not look good on me.

    APL with half of my hair in chin length or shorter layers was the worst. You wear it down, or down in your face, or down poking you in the eyeball, or you ponytail like 3 hairs in the back while the rest is down and getting in your facial orifices.

    I am so glad my layers are all shoulder at the shortest now.
