Can I call this waist? :-)

I am so excited! I couldn't have done it without you, lovely LHC members! When I came here, my hair was in horrendous condition with white dots everywhere. I was devastated. The kind people here told me not to stress and gave me all of the information I needed to turn my entire hair care routine around. I am so much happier with my hair now, and I think my hair is happier with me as well. :D Thank you!!!

Oh, and please pardon my slightly crooked hairsticks. I didn't notice until I saw the photo.

Can I say wow! Your hair looks gorgeous.:blossom: You represent us wurly/Curlies really well texture wise. It makes me get excited of what is to come. Congrats with your milestone and thanks for sharing this. :flowers:

Beautiful! :thud:

It definitely looks past waist to me. :)

Also, I just absolutely adore your texture! I wish my wurls would grow up to become your hair, but unfortunately hair doesn't work that way. :p

Thank you so much, everyone! It is definitely just at waist (where my hands are), but I'm thrilled that it looks longer than that to some of you!! :happydance:

I am absolutely stunned by all of the extremely kind compliments. I have struggled to embrace my natural texture, and today my hair was behaving better than usual, hence my decision to take a photo. It isn't always so compliant! Like most 2's, I sometimes have odd waves that stick out wherever they wish. I have always fought against my hair until I came here and discovered a few hair idols of my own with similar lengths and textures. :o

I owe a lot of the shine to this product from Silk Naturals, which has done wonders for my hair (I am unaffiliated with the brand): http://host.silknaturals.com/creb/lush-locks-hair-p-1231.html

It also smells delicious and lasts for a long time!

Everything else I owe to the wonderful people here who have helped me along the way! I plan to maintain at waist for a while. I still have a few inches of past damage that I would like to eventually trim as my hair continues growing. After that.... I might consider seeing how my hair looks at hip or TBL. :)

Thank you again!! :flower:

You have really lovely long curly hair, the kind I often tell my daughter I'd practically sell my soul to have, but I've been given the straight hair running in my family instead.

I agree with the comments about your hair length; definitely waist at least and I reckon that if you took hold of a bit of the length and stetched it straight it might almost be hip length.

I'm almost that length!!

I agree, definately looks like waist. Good job! Your hair looks so beautful, it's hard to belive it was ever in horrendous condition. Hooray for LHC!

Amazing hair! I can't wait until my slightly wavy hair is long enough do be able to do sock bun curls that sit at waist length.
I wish my hair was like yours! Congratulations!

Thank you! My current goal is to maintain at waist for a while, as I have some thinning ends I would like to gradually trim off. I may grow to hip length at some point just to see if I like it, but waist was my ultimate goal. :)

Most definitely, a little longer than that in fact

Thank you again for all of the incredibly kind compliments! I am blushing, and my day has absolutely been brightened!! :flower: I feel that perhaps my photo is misleading, though. In person, my hair is definitely just brushing the top of my natural waistline. In all reality, I probably need a solid 1/2 inch to really be at waist with my hair wavy. Perhaps the angle of the photo is making it look longer... :)

I looked again and your hands are at your hips, its a shock that actual waist is a lot higher than we all think, i did the same as you until someone pointed out that was hip length.

My hands are actually at the very smallest part of my natural waist. I completely understand what you mean, though! I didn't know where my natural waist was when I was younger, but then I had to learn to take proper measurements for tailoring. I will have to upload a different photo sometime that isn't as misleading. I think that the problem is in the cropping. If the photo showed more of my body at the bottom, you would see that my hips are several inches below and considerably wider than my natural waist. :)

Such beautiful hair!!! Definitely waist...actually past waist I think! I am trying to get back to waist after a 3.5 inch chop last year :-( I'm happy you've made it there!
