View Full Version : One Years Progress Since BIG Chop

April 9th, 2013, 09:49 PM
So I haven't been hanging around this board very much. I chopped my classic length hair all off last year. Tomorrow will be exactly one year since the big chop. I thought I would come and show my progress. :)


Minus a few inches that were trimmed off a few times (to prevent a mullet while growing out lol).

I do plan on growing out from here. I was tempted to stay at chin for a while but I already had enough of short hair so I figured I'd keep growing. I plan to grow until it won't grow anymore. Or until I want to maintain. lol I don't mind my colour (it's my natural colour) but it is a bit boring since I had a really nice fiery red before cutting. It is growing on me. I was thinking of putting a few chunks of temporary bright colours (like bright blue or hot pink) as it grows.

Thank you. :)


There's the thread from the big chop. My hair looks horrible though since I didn't wash it before I went to get it cut.

Here's a few photos from a photoshoot I did with a friend the summer of 2011. My hair looks kind of greasy to me so I don't care much for how my hair looks here either but these are probably the best photos I have. I discovered that I have very few length showing photos of my hair in the year or so before I chopped it.



And this would be the last length shot I did. It's from March of 2011. It grew very little between then and when I cut my hair so that's basically the length before cutting (maybe plus an inch or so)

Your hair has grown out nicely.

That's a lot of lovely growth. It's looking good!

The henna is nice, but I love your natural color more. It somehow looks thicker right now. Anyway, happy growing. You already grew out a lot, past many an awkward stage! :D :thumbsup:

Your hair looks lovely! Much thicker and I love the colour, too. Well done!

Thank you, ladies. :)

My hair was kind of thin before so I'm hoping it is thicker this time around. I'm pretty sure some of it is genetics (mom and grandma and various other family members have thin hair) but I also didn't start to actually take care of my hair to grow it out until it was BSL so it might've been thin before because of that. At least I'm hoping that's part of it. lol

Ack I'm so jealous of your progress! It's been one year since I started growing out my pixie and I'm still mid neckish, yours looks so long! My pixie was shoter than yours though! Excellent progress! It looks awesome!

It looks great and very shiny and healthy. I personally like your natural hair color, it looks a bit auburn to me.

Beautiful hair! I personally prefer your natural colour to the red you had before :)

I'll be looking forward to seeing your hair grow, as I just cut mine into a bob last night!
