Hey everyone! It's been a while! I've been mega busy, and I'm struggling to get used to the new LHC set up, so haven't really been on here.

Anyway, so I finally reached BSL. Just grazing the top of brastrap but godammit, I'm claiming it! Haha. What they say about the damage really occuring once you get to bra strap, oh yes. My hair is constantly getting caught on my bag. It's so annoying. I have much more splits than I'd like, and some of them are really nasty but I remain calm and just S&D. I will do a massive trim once I reach my goal but no big trims for now. I am being a lot more rough with my hair now also, which isn't good, so I need to be more cautious. SO, BSL now, full BSL then midback, here I come!

Ugh, one annoying this is that my curls are taking a while to appear long. When my hair is straight, it looks mega long but curly, they're still just past my shoulders. It's annoying, to say the least, but I guess they'll be APL when I'm waist/midback? It's discouraging, to say the least, when my goal is hip length WHILE CURLY :/

ANYWAY, I'll stop waffling and show the pics! I've thrown in some general hair pics too :)

I still get shocked by the length of my hair when it's straight.

Wow, it looks amazing and it's grown so fast, I'm sure the last time I saw it straight it was only a bit past APL! Congrats, it's gonna be traffic stopping at hip :)

edit: oh boy, I just saw that your goal is hip while curly... that will end up being TB+ while straight I guess?

Congrats on the growth! I'm less than an inch from BSL, and I'm totally claiming it too! xD

Wow great progress! The shrinkage is quite impressive :D. I'm just below BSL when stretched now but my fringe I was growing out is only at shoulder.

Keep up the good work, your hair still looks very healthy to me.

Thank you! Yes, it's quite surreal to me. I've always had fast growing hair but it's never been this long. Or healthy, come to think of it.. It's so exciting!

And, yeah, I know! I get worried when I see these other 3bs with gorgeous waist length curls but tailbone stretched. I really want long curls down to my hips, but it might not be possible. Only time will tell, I guess!

Thank you! And yes, claim it! Haha, I was raving about being nearly BSL last month ;)

Thank you! I get more shrinkage than I expect for a 3b/a! But meh.

And thanks hun. I think my hair is very healthy in terms of moisture retention, porosity, elesticity but these splits do worry me. Because there's a lot of them. But I refuse to do anything but S&D. I'll get through them!


Curls! *squee*

I would kill for your curls! SO PRETTY :crush:

Its possible that as your hair gets longer, the curls will be stretched out a bit and the shrinkage wont be as bad...maybe?

Your curlys are Be-YOU-T-full!! And it is looking really healthy.

ps:You know those splits are most likely from that straightener though!? :whistle:
It looks great either way and will be amazing with those curls at hip, just give it time

Was going to say exactly this. I have super strong, fairly coarse hair that's practically immune to split ends, but the one monster that my hair simply cannot resist is the straightener. Straightening my hair gives me splits like crazy, and it sounds like that might be what's going on! Though, honestly, I know how tempting it can be to check your total length that way, and to admire the length while straight. And CurlyCurves, something tells me you must be the pro of heat-protectant to get hair that darn healthy even with the semi-frequent straightening. Probably preaching to the choir here :lol:

I also want to say that, CurlyCurves, you are totally my hair idol on this website. Not that we're anywhere *close* to being hair twins, but if there were some sort of stupid popularity contest poll about who has the coolest hair I would vote you for sure! :D Wow!

I think that's "Can I call this BSL", definitely. You're nearly there. I get why you're so impatient to call it. ;) Congrats, though! :D
