View Full Version : Waist Length!

July 18th, 2013, 11:08 AM
Several months ago, after realizing that I was doing too much obsessing and measuring, I decided to practice benign neglect. I wear my hair up in a bun 90% of the time and try not to pay attention to length. Today I decided I would measure for the first time in a few months. I was shocked when my length measured at 29 inches! I asked my daughter to snap a picture, and sure enough, I've made it to waist length. And just in time for my birthday in a few days!


And here's where I started really measuring growth in August and September 2012:


Now on to hip, and then my final goal of TBL! Thanks to everyone here for all the info and encouragement along the way.

You almost have no taper. Do you use Feye's self trimming method? If you don't mind sharing.

I do use Feye's method. The last trim was about 2 months ago and I did her slight V-trim. I was nervous beforehand, but really happy with the results. I think it looks nicer on me than a blunt trim, so I'm planning to stick with it. And maybe even do a deeper V once I hit TBL.

July 18th, 2013, 12:34 PM
Beautiful! I love the texture and thickness!

That's a quick growth, have you taken any supplements? :)

Yay for you! Happy upcoming Birthday too!:gift:

My hair does seem to grow faster than average. I've done several small trims over the last year trying to get rid of layers, so I was shocked to realize I was at waist already. I don't take any supplements. I think my growth did speed up a little since I started doing monthly henna treatments, but that is the only thing I can think of that may contribute to my fast growth.

Wow such gorgeous hair & lovely colour too. Has reminded me to stop fussing about measuring etc, wear it up & forget about just how close I am to waist now! Hope you have a wonderful birthday :flowers:

Thanks for all your kind comments everyone! As you can probably tell, I'm very excited to have reached this milestone. It really did feel like the growing process went by so much faster when I just put it up and forgot about it. I will continue to do so until I reach TBL.

July 18th, 2013, 04:02 PM
Wow! Very pretty!

July 18th, 2013, 04:04 PM
Can i ask how long it took you to go from chin to waist total? I'm growing out from chin to waist, so I'm curious. :)

July 18th, 2013, 04:11 PM
Congratulations, your hair is beautiful! :)

I didn't begin keeping track of growth timeline wise until just before I hit APL. That's when I got serious about taking better care of my hair and found LHC. From APL to waist was almost exactly 1 year. Waist length on me is 29 inches.

Lovely thick hair and amazing growth! You must be so happy. :) Oh, and happy birthday in advance. ^-^

Congrats! Your hair is beautiful, it's so thick and the color is very pretty :)

I hope you'll post another pic when you reach TBL. That's my next milestone too after I reach waist, so it'll be interesting to know how long it took you to get there:)

I'm so glad for you and Happy Birthday. Your hair looks very nice and healthy:D it's fun to sort of ignore it for awhile and then to really see how much it's grown!
