View Full Version : 20 inches!!! Yay!

I had my husband help me measure my hair, and I am finally at 20 inches!! Yay!

Granted, I'm still pretty far from my goal, BUT, I feel so much closer now that I'm finally in the 20s! I had started growing it out right after I cut it halfway between my shoulder and chin (maybe 14.5") in January. It didn't take long to realize that was a really stupid mistake. (Yes I thought about it over 2 weeks, but it was still something I regret.)

I think I was at about 24 inches when I cut, so it feels really great to be in the same area as when I started. Just thought I'd announce it!! :p

Great! Yes, 20" sounds like so much more than 19", somehow :) And it looks really nice from your avatar.

Hey, congratulations! You're right - 20 inches is a lot more than 19 :D

my hair is 20 inches too! maybe we can grow together! :)

Yea! And yesterday I got a bun up and it didn't all spill out. I couldn't even get it to do that last year, when I had BSL hair. But it was really layered... Of course, it is now too. I guess I'm just practicing more :)

Wow, congrats!! :D

I really like your avatar-style too. How do you make it? Looks really nice and a bit complicated...^^

Congratulations! 20 inches does seem so much more than19. I felt the same way when my hair reached 25".

Your hair is beautiful! Congrats on growing 20"! Just think of the fact that cutting your hair as you did only encouraged it to grow so beautifully! :)

September 7th, 2008, 09:43 PM
Congratulations and keep up the good work! :D

Thanks for the compliments :o

The style in my avatar is just two buns offset from each other with a hair stick in each one. The hair spills out from all the layers, but that pic is maybe six weeks old so I think I could get it neater now. Can't wait to do more fun stuff with it!

Wait for me! I'm right behind you at just barely 19". I can imagine 20" seems very long, I can't wait to get there myself!
Enjoy your new growth.
