View Full Version : My hair growth in a year

July 12th, 2013, 02:38 PM
OK, this is sort of a vanity post, sorry :p But I have been taking a length photo every month for over a year now, and I just compared a photo I took today with one from July 2012, and it makes me feel so good that my hair has grown quite well. Seeing this growth is encouraging, because it felt like my hair just stopped growing all through winter. I wanted to share this with you, because... well why not?

My original goal was waist, now it's tailbone, or possibly classic.

And yes that's the same t-shirt :) (unfortunately I seem to have gained a stone in weight too over the past year, oh well, you win some you lose some! ;))

Anyone else get surprised when looking back on old pics? :)

July 12th, 2013, 02:43 PM
Wow, such beautiful hair! I love the colour :)

Congrats on the growth too!

Congratulations :D your hair looks very pretty and shiny!

Congratulations! Great growth!

That's such a good idea to document growth, I tend to get discouraged with my hair (it grows soooooo slow). I should try it. Looks great! BTW the "weight gain" doesn't show. :D

That's a lot of growth.

July 12th, 2013, 03:05 PM
That's a lot of growth for only one year! Congratulations!

July 12th, 2013, 03:06 PM

That is just awesome growth! Congrats

Truly amazing growth, and what gorgeous hair you have.

July 12th, 2013, 05:13 PM
Very pretty! So shiny!

Oh, and am I the only one who noticed the smoking Mona Lisa in the 2nd pic?! Hahahahaha! Nice!

great progress, well done! You go girl, all the way to classic. And I can't notice any weight gain, although I do know what you mean - I'm in the middle of winter here and my hair growth has slowed down and I've gained some winter weight. Can't wait til it warms up a bit and I don't feel like a sleepy snail :D

Awesome growth!! BEAUTIFUL Hair!!!

July 13th, 2013, 12:08 AM
Oh my...so shiny!

July 13th, 2013, 12:11 AM
Where is the adore button?

July 13th, 2013, 02:20 AM
Fantastic growth, you hair looks lovely!

July 13th, 2013, 02:48 AM
Beautiful length and colour!

Congratulations! :D

July 13th, 2013, 03:35 AM
Congrats on the growth!! Your hair is so beautiful, colour and texture

July 13th, 2013, 04:29 AM
Great growth! Your hair is so pretty and shiny! :applause

Your hair is beautiful: length, color, shine are all enviable.
I also noticed the smoking Mona Lisa and had a quiet chuckle - clever.
I have often wished that folks who post pics of hair progress would stick to one outfit so that it'd be very easy to see the hair itself and gauge the growth and condition. It's frustrating when people with dark hair wear dark colors or people with light hair wear light colors. And don't even get me started on busy patterns in the clothes.
So you definitely get my vote for some of the best hair pics around. Keep up the good work.

Your hair is so beautiful and long! I'm really envious of you :D

July 13th, 2013, 10:19 AM
Congratulations! You've had good growth this year. I'm currently doing a photo a month as well (started in January) so I hope I get as good growth as you! Well done!

July 13th, 2013, 10:22 AM
That's an amazing change! You have such gorgeous hair. Wow!

July 13th, 2013, 10:23 AM
Great growth :). Love your hair.

July 13th, 2013, 12:33 PM
So much growth! Your hair is so lovely! The color is beautiful and it's so shiny! Gorgeous!!

July 13th, 2013, 12:34 PM
That is some serious growth! And looks really healthy and pretty, congratulations :D

July 13th, 2013, 01:20 PM
It's so shiny! *__*
Great growth!

July 13th, 2013, 01:55 PM
You've had some great growth! Your hair is beautiful :)

July 13th, 2013, 04:17 PM
Thank you all so much for your lovely comments! :) I think taking a photo a month is a good idea to monitor growth, I prefer something visual rather than measuring inches :)

July 13th, 2013, 04:32 PM
Nice growth! :)

July 13th, 2013, 04:39 PM
Wow, your hair is soo shiny! Love the colour! :)

July 13th, 2013, 06:41 PM
Beautiful long hair. Looks like about 8 inches in a year!

Please keep us updated, maybe you could share your photo in another 6 months (instead of making us wait a whole year?)

You will have to hand wash that shirt so it will last you many years for photos!!! LOL

July 13th, 2013, 07:47 PM
Wow, amazing growth and I love your hair :inlove:

July 14th, 2013, 01:45 AM
Your hair is lovely!!

July 14th, 2013, 04:23 AM
Thank you! Maybe I will show another in 6 months time :)
It's also worth noting my hair has been trimmed in between the two photos, only about half an inch or so though.

Also glad some of you spotted the pothead Mona Lisa, haha, bought that poster in my silly teenage years :p
