View Full Version : 2nd hairiversary - pic heavy

ETA Ohh, sh*t. The other links...

So, I joined two years ago. I didn't start taking lenght shots at the beginning, as there was some *Heisenberg uncertainty principle* going on with the camera, the mirrors and the network connection. (At least I suspect so. ;)) You couldn't get all of them properly at the same time. ;)
So, my first pic is from September, 2011
I'm not sure I was exactly at BSL when I joined, but I thought that was the nearest milestone.

November 2012, getting near to hip - For a long while I thought my hair was OK, as it was shiney.

Then I found the keyword to haircare - It's *statistically* . When I realized I had to get my entire year's growth trimmed, I decided to take the mechanical damage thing more seriously. So stopped wet brushing, now I braid my hair at night and also bought a brush which is easy on my hair. Although it needs to be modified in some ways to be perfect.(There'll be another thread on that.) No matter I wasn't doing any chemical damage, I wasn't treating my hair well enough. Here's the result:

Then I got it trimmed into a V-hemline on 31st January. I really liked my cut.

Now it has grown, this is from 18th March. Hoping to reach hip by Christmas.

And a braid and a lazy wrap bun just for fun: (hope you don't mind it;))

Tomorrow I'll take a pic for the anniversary and post it. Hope the pics aren't too big.

That's great progress - and looks much healthier. It is interesting how the V shape is growing out more like a U shape.

Thanks! Yes, it is. I'll get it back in June. The fresh ends were fantastic! Also, the trims are good for my hair. I was only doing S&D when I got into that *ahem* state, and I was using BAD SCISSORS! I always had splits! After my stylist trims my hair, it is all better.

That's amazing progress.

I think you did good by getting that V cut! It looks a lot thicker and healthier now, and it grew a ton from what I can see. Congrats!

Congratulations. :)

You have beautiful, shiny hair! It looks very healthy :)

It has really improved much! :agree:

It looks like you've gained a lot of length since the cut. Your hair is beautiful! Congratulations on the anniversary! :D

thank you guys for your sweet compliments! It has grown after the trim indeed. Before it was hardly growing. I think this is the point when I have to pay attention, ususally things got out of hand for me on the road to hip. Tomorrow I'll take a pic (I didn't have the time today) then probably back to benign neglect & updos. I'm really starting to get what you're all saying on LHC. ;)
