Sorry if there is a similar posting, I couldn't find one, so here goes!
I am currently 21 inches, and need to be 29 to reach waist. 8 inches to grow! It is possible!
What is your current length, how much left for you to grow before reaching waist?
Thought we could give each other support and advice on growing for our goal!

joining in! I don't really know how many inches [I shall measure and return] but I'm at solid APL now, my growth rate is slow to average 1/2 inches per month...so 2015 seems very realistic,

I'm creeping towards the end of bsl, and hope to be at waist by 2015 - accounting for the fact that the last three inches will have to be trimmed back due to past neglect and weird layers from past semi-buzzed haircuts.

erm... when you say 'by 2015' it means any month in 2015 - right? :)

Joining in on this! If I don't cut my hair for a year (maybe a little longer) I'll reach the crook of my back, and that's my goal. Can't wait for 2015!

I'm bra strap almost I'm wondering if I could try this I may fall short but I want to set a goal. If I make it it's going to be the later part of 2015.

I want to be waist by 2015.
I think it is possible.
But I will look like brastrap or even shorter since I am curly.
I would like to be waist by then stretched.

Joining! I'm at BSL now but will need a trim to cut out my layers so a solid WL should be attainable by 2015 :)

ExpectoPatronum
October 2nd, 2013, 04:52 PM
I'm hoping to be at waist and beyond in 2015. If I don't trim, I could be there in a year...but we'll see. I'm currently at 23 inches and waist for me is somewhere between 31-33 inches. I'm not really sure :lol:

Same here! Few centimeters away from BSL, but I am still not sure how to measure/take a good picture. Ah well. Looks different length from every angle. I hope for BSL late 2013/early 2014, and at the end of 2014/early 2015 waist or on: ) My hair grows 1,5 cm/month, so technically... but we will see.

(This is me completely changing this post:)
I should get to BCL/TBL no later than October 2017, and I think that's with a year's leeway for up to 6 inches in trims.
I'm definitely in this thread, because I should be BSL in October of 2014, so Waist some time in 2015 is very likely.

October 5th, 2013, 01:48 AM
I think this thread is more up my alley as I have been micro trimming on a monthly basis to get rid of old dye and to keep my ends fresh and blunt as possible. My hair is currently a little passed BSL but am aiming to be waist length at some point.

Stray_mind
October 5th, 2013, 03:36 AM
I know i can't reach waist in 2015, but i'm gonna set up a different goal-BSL by 2015!

I'm joining too! I'm about an inch past BSL now and just trimmed 2 inches so I think I'll be able to make to waist by then. Maybe even longer if I'm lucky!

Vampyria
October 7th, 2013, 07:58 AM
Sometime in 2015 or near the end of 2015 might be possible. If I stop with the excessive trimming though. I'm somewhere above APL now.

Right now im 26 and a half inches,
Waist for me is at 31 inches.
I'm hoping to be waist by next year on my 2 year anniversay in May (about 8 months from now). By 2015 I should be Hip or maybe passed.... WOW! I get so excited to think of the growth ahead :) Happy growing you guys! :)

thirstylocks
October 16th, 2013, 11:04 PM
If all goes as planned and my hair grows at a consistent rate, I should be at waist in October of 2015!! We'll see, a girl can dream. That is my goal length!

JessicaAnn
November 19th, 2013, 07:58 PM
I'm jumping in on this thread. I'll have my official monthly measurements next week so I know how far off from waist length I am. I'm estimating somewhere around 10 inches. I'm a fairly swift grower, so I should be able to at least get my bottom layers to my waist by some point in 2015.

ProverbsGirl
November 19th, 2013, 08:03 PM
I'm in! Haven't measured inches in a while, but I'm almost BSL. Crossing fingers for BSL by Christmas.
My hair grows fairly quickly..and so I would love to see Waist by 2015. I will pop back in with measurements soon. :)

bananahanna
November 19th, 2013, 08:32 PM
I don't remember commenting on this thread, but i did apparently, i definitely should be at waist in late 2015! i'm excited. currently at 17+ and waist is 30/31in

Glimmer
November 19th, 2013, 08:40 PM
I am thinking I will be waist by 2015. I am at shoulder right now and waist might be a tad ambitious but I also have a short torso. Waist on me is around 26 inches and I am at 15 inches now so I need about 11 more inches. 2 years at 6 inches a year with some small trims...I might make it. ;)

Asrai
November 19th, 2013, 10:38 PM
Sign me up. I've got about 9 or 10 inches to waist at the mo & a bit of damage to trim out, but I get at least 6" a year, so I should make it by late 2015.

DancingQueen
November 19th, 2013, 11:29 PM
Joining! :) I don't know if I will make it in the early 2015, but I am a little past APL, so maybe it will be possible. :)

curiouslight
November 20th, 2013, 12:18 AM
This is definitely my goal! Count me in. I haven't really measured the rate of my hair growth but it's probably around half an inch per month. I need about 10 more inches, so hopefully if all goes well I'll have waist length by July 2015!

coconutinsight
November 20th, 2013, 04:20 AM
I'm joining, I was past BSL but decided to cut 4 inches (good choice, my hair looks way better) so I'm a bit past APL. Waist on me is 29 so I have 7 inches to go, waist by the end of 2014 or beginning of 2015 should be possible :) (here's hoping!)

moniquerenaud
December 10th, 2013, 03:35 PM
I don't know my exact length ( keep forgetting to measure:rolleyes: ) but Im about a few inches past BSL. Waist by 2015 is the long term goal, I'd like it sooner if possible obviously! Any advice to help it grow nice and healthy and quick?

JessicaAnn
December 10th, 2013, 03:48 PM
I'm currently at 18-18.5 and waist on me is between 28-29. The last couple of months my hair as grown an inch per month (actually just over, but I'm OK with calling it at an inch) so I'm pretty sure I will be close to waist by 2015. I'll definitely be there solidly sometime in 2015.

panffle
December 10th, 2013, 03:54 PM
Joining too. I just had a trim that put me a bit above BSL, I should be back at waist sometime in 2015!

swearnsue
December 10th, 2013, 04:29 PM
My hair is at 22" and waist would be 30" on me. I think I can do 8" in a year!

Avital88
December 10th, 2013, 04:32 PM
It sounds so far away! But indeed 8 inches is easy to do by then.

Sterlyn
December 11th, 2013, 05:00 PM
I'm in :).
I am hoping to make waist by late summer/early fall of 2015, I think it's possible. That is also assuming of course that my hair will actually grow that long and it continues to grow the average 1/2" per month until then.

ladonna
December 12th, 2013, 01:35 PM
In August of 2011 I chopped my hair to shoulder length. My hair is now to the small of my back so about 4 inches from my waist a little over 2 years after the chop. I think I reached bsl somewhere around February or march of this year, and I was also having to cut about a .25 inch of every couple of months. I just recently stopped having to trim so often. So probably 6-12 mo the for someone to grow from bsl to waist since there are so many variables involved.
Oops thought op was asking how long it takes to grow from bsl to wl.

Of the Fae
December 12th, 2013, 04:28 PM
Hmmm if I really really push it and don't cut my longer layers (Bottom of neck) I might might make it by the end of 2015... Haha but that's pushing it.
A girl can dream...

December 13th, 2013, 07:33 AM
Wait for me! Wait for me!!! I'm in too. Especially if any month in 2015 counts.... I'm stuck in no man's land between APL and BSL but I think I can give it a go!

bryana
December 13th, 2013, 07:48 AM
Count me in! I am 2 inches past BSL and I think I can hit waist by 2015. YAY!!!!!

Awesome, I'm in! I'm at BSL so I'm sure I can make it to waist by 2015!

Joining in on this! My hair is creeping towards BSL, and I think waist by late 2015 is realistic! :) Can't wait!

December 13th, 2013, 10:59 AM

I guess I'm in..

(10 inches)

I am going for the end of 2015, (gives me the substantial amount of time..)

December 13th, 2013, 11:12 AM
I'm in.....im just longer then apl but I'm going to have to do a trim this month and then I'm not going to cut for a long time....just s&d.

Stray_mind
December 13th, 2013, 01:32 PM
Well, since my hair should be at BSL by the end of 2014 and it takes only about 2 or 3 inches of growth from there to my waist, i guess it's quite possible that somewhere in the summer of 2015 i'll reach waist, so i guess i'm in.

hanne jensen
December 14th, 2013, 03:50 AM
I'm in! At my growth rate it should be doable to be waist in Dec. 2015. I'm at APL now.

jessj48
December 14th, 2013, 04:24 AM
I'm going to be optimistic and get in on this!
My very inaccurate measuring using a hairstick as a ruler suggests I have around 8 inches till waist. I don't measure my hair so I'm not sure what my growth rate is. Seems achievable though haha! :)

The sticking point might be that I'm planning on cutting off my bleached ends in October next year. Most of the bleach is on my top layers though, so it might not affect my length TOO much if I can just cut in some layers. *crosses fingers*

Currently at 19" (50cm) and would love to get in on this. Growing out the dye which is between 7-9" grown out now. with 10-12" of dyed hair left.

I really hope I can make Waist by 2015. Would love to know all the rules and tips you guys are following to try and make it to Waist!

Agnes Hannah
March 14th, 2014, 01:39 PM
Taliara there are no rules unless you have your own to follow, it is just a case of growing to waist by 2015, when in 2015 is up to you. Welcome to the thread!

March 14th, 2014, 04:51 PM

Count me in! I'm mostly APL (22") and BSL is 27" for me and waist is about 28.5" so I think I can make it sometime in 2015. I never realized this before and now I'm excited! :cheese:

March 19th, 2014, 11:14 AM
My hair grew 2 inches in 3 months but I trimmed 1/2 inch the other day. So now I am at 23.5 inches. I think I can make it to waist!

I've been massaging my scalp more consistently, twice a day every day for a couple of minutes at least.

June 12th, 2014, 12:54 PM

twiglet
June 12th, 2014, 04:14 PM
I just hit BSL... I'm going by body markers rather than length but it seems like promising enough growth to assume that I can make waist by 2015 ;)

Wosie
June 12th, 2014, 04:25 PM
My hair is ~25" long now... Waist is ~31" for me, so I have ~6" left. I hope I'll reach waist next year. :pray: It's hard to believe it's possible, though. :bigeyes:

Sterlyn
June 12th, 2014, 08:16 PM
I am at 21.5" stretched, which is a bit past APL. Waist is somewhere between 28 or 29 inches for me, one plus of being short and fairly short waisted. Unless I have some catastrophic hair growth failure, I should make waist by sometime in 2015. Remains to be seen whether that will be stretched and measured or wavy/dry, but I'll take it either way I can get it. ;)

Crystawni
June 12th, 2014, 09:26 PM
Count me in! I'm about an inch or so from calling BSL, currently at around 64cm (25.25"), and reckon waist on me is somewhere past 80cm (31.5"). My hair's grown 3cm (1.25") since the end of April, so I guess waist by 2015 is doable if I behave with the scissors. :D 16cm (6.25") to go...

*hides scissors*

*pulls up a comfy beanbag and flops in*

*twiddles thumbs*

Watching paint dry is quicker, hey...

Sterlyn
June 12th, 2014, 09:47 PM
Crystawni, I forgot to add that part as well, this will work for me too as long as I behave with the scissors too. :) No more than a dusting if needed until waist....

Mitzy
June 12th, 2014, 10:54 PM
Ohhh, count me in!

I am 19 inches and waist on me is 29 inches. I generally grow about 1/2 inch a month but sometimes get a bit more in the summer. I am also really pushing the Biotin AND my eye vitamins seem to be helping, which is probably weird, but whatever. (I have Macular Degeneration and am on megadoses of AREDS2 vitamins on dr's orders. Here's a link - http://www.visivite.com/areds2plus.html )

I had already decided I was aiming for waist by Christmas 2015 so yeah!

Mitzy
June 13th, 2014, 12:52 AM
Okay, so my husband measured for me and I have 12 inches to go according to him, but I still will try. I do get some fast growth in the warmer months sometimes. Maybe my spine will shrink or something.

I want to join! I'm washing my hair today so I'll get my measurements when it's dry. I'm almost at waist now but I want to be at solid waist with a nice hemline, which means I'll have to do some trimming and maintaining.

Zebra Fish
June 13th, 2014, 08:02 AM
I'm definitely in! I'm really near waist, if I stretch I'm technically there, but with lots of tapering. So I'm maintaining here (hoovering over waist) till the hemline gets better, but I hope I'll pass waist in 2015 with nicer hemline :) All in all, hanging out here :p

Ack, I misunderstood the thread's name, I think. :o I think it meant that all those who'll reach waist in (or before) 2015 would write here, but now I realised that it probably means "before 2015"...(?) :hmm: That'll be impossible for moi!

June 13th, 2014, 09:04 AM
erm... when you say 'by 2015' it means any month in 2015 - right? :)

Sterlyn & Crystawni, Thank you for the clarification! :flower: Now I know I belong here. :o (Unless I cut my hair too much, but then again, even with a few small trims I still think I will reach waist in 2015.)
It's just hard to believe it'll happen so 'soon' as my hair still feels rather short, and waist is long (!) and one year isn't a long time (at least to me). :cheer: Good luck to all of us!

I was just thinking today that I would reach waist in 2016, but from reading previous posts I think I can find company here. Most of my layers are at APL and the longest ones are at BSL. I'm at least an average grower, so I think I will be reaching waist next year too. Yea!!

jacqueline101
June 23rd, 2014, 10:22 AM
I gave in and measured my hair I have 4.5 inches until waist. I might make it after all. I'm looking for ways to boost hair growth. I had to brag a bit about my new measurements.
