Thats amazing how much your hair is growing LauraLongLocks - it dosnt feel like it was to long ago when you were still in the BSL to Waist thread :) Also thank you for that link. Very appriciated!

Johannah Im affraid i wont show much growth either but we shell see :) When is your due date? (for the next photo length :p)

I agree with Lostsoule, everyone's growth is really encouraging. It's kind of amazing how much growth you can get in just 4 weeks :)

My pic date is coming up and I hope it shows some growth. Dead of winter isn't a big growing time as far as my hair is concerned.

Thank you! I do think my posture was a bit improved on my February shot, so that was part of it. I never really thought my hair grew fast, but I guess it does. Are you referring to my hair tutorial link I posted? Glad you liked it. Many more to come, I hope.

well, if it's ok to join late...

I took this on January 23 (and was horrified at my ends, first time I'd seen my hair straight in a long time, I had blow dried it, which I don't often do. This after living somewhere with very hard water and just having my hair lose it's mind)

Neptune your hair is such an awesome shinny dark colour. Love it! Seems like you are getting close to hip!


Arwenlily I recommend to take photos standing straight and using a camera timer or get someone to take a photo because it will be tricky to see exact growth from angled pictures (please dont take this harshly). Love your curls by the way :) Where is your hair stretched?


Jennah Thank you so much, didn’t think that anyone would notice them so this is great. I didnt take photos every single month but I will try my best to do that this year :)

Verdandi is never to late to join in, its about documenting monthly pictures in general or thats how i see it. Also, do you cut your hem line like that or did it grow naturally?


Johannah I see great growth for you to, your hair is now a lot closer to the glasses frames. Thats AWESOME :D Woohoo!!! And where is that wave in your hair coming from?

Wosie

I think I'm going to jump in even though I'm a month late and really really short!

Top row is my hair about half an hour after I went to have my pixie shortened and bottom row is today (1month after pixie) I have trimmed the sides in front of my ears a little bit to keep it from looking weird.

I doubt the back is going to look too different for a while since I may need mullet trims but who knows

Tini'sNewHair No, I don't cut it that way, at least not in such a deep V. I noticed it myself a few days back (Haven't trimmed it or looked at it loose from behind since the beginning of December when I did a micro trim) and was really confused. Maybe these monthly pictures can help me figure out what my hair is doing. :)

I need to take my length photos, I'm hoping I'll see some growth but at the same time I don't want to take them incase there is no change.

I might straighten my hair for the length shots to get a more accurate guide to how much my hair is growing, and once a month I can have a different look for a week and a few days.

I feel as if my hair didn´t grow last month.. and when I look at the pictures I can hardly see any growth, a tiny tiny bit maybe. And, considered that I did cut my hair a little, les then 1 cm I guess, maybe 0,5 something I think it grow as it looks almost the same:p

Thanks Stray_mind and Snorman! I guess you both are right. The picture indeed isn´t equal.. and indeed the white part is a little bit more covered, I didn´t really see that before. And about to which picture we compare the latest one to, I think both ways seem fine. I personally think I will always post all the pictures, as they´re small and I´d like to see them all toghether, and I want to see how much it grew since the beginning but also in one month.

I have two versions one with lines showing how I have tried to line up the images up and one without the lines. I have tried to line them up by the top of you head, your shoulder and the top of your armpit. It was a little tricky because your Jan photo was very small and also they are not quite taken at the same angle, but I think it's come out pretty good :) I hope you like them.

In case it helps anyone, the older versions of Photoshop are now freeware. You can download and use them for nothing:

http://www.techspot.com/downloads/3689-adobe-photoshop-cs2.html

It's a great program and probably has 90% of the features the newest version does!

Or paint.net is good also, if you prefer something a bit simpler:

Ok here is my pic for this month, not a huge amount of growth but I'll take it. This is freshly washed, coconut oil applied overnight prewash to help combat this dry winter air. Also I realized my hair doesn't take a consistent pic from day to day, much less one month to the next. :p. I think I've gotten a little more growth than the pics show as my cinnabuns are getting neater all of a sudden and more of my ends seem to be in the bun than out of it lately.

In case anyone thinks I am exaggerating about my moody, changeable hair. Hair was very uncooperative today, I couldn't get a decent length pic to save my life this morning, hair kept laying weird in most of them. Finally gave up and called it done. Guess all I needed to do was stop trying.:) This pic was taken about 2 hours later, different shirt and room, but doesn't look like the same head of hair. I mean seriously hair????:disgust: Hmmm, maybe I am becoming just a little bit hair obsessed......

ETA for clarity: sorry if this post became confusing... below is not my monthly length shots for Jan/Feb , it is just my pic for Feb, which I could not get a decent picture for anything this morning...... then 2 hours later I went to comb my hair to put it up and viola.....decent hair, so I snapped a pic to show the changeability (if that's a word) of hair in general.... My Jan/Feb pics were posted earlier up the thread...

Have you tried out the Curly Girl method? It really works when it comes to defining waves. I didn't even think of myself as a wavy person before, just somebody with unruly hair. :o
I'm pretty sure my waves will get less and less pronounced as it gets longer, though (regrettably). I'll just continue on with the CG method and hope that the waviness remains.

By the way, something I've been wondering--is the hair colour in your avatar your natural colour? I really like it!

And yes that is my natural color:), thank you, I have grown to like it too. Graying young seems to be a family trait on my mothers side. I found my first gray at 23 and was coloring in my mid to late 20's.

And to wosie, I have used CG and had good success with it, when I colored. But since I have transitioned to natural I don't have nearly the waves and they are much more fickle, no matter what products I use. I also have grown out my layers which probably has not helped. There is a pic in my album that I added of my hair in my CG days, that was about as much curl as I ever got on a good day. I haven't been able to duplicate that since I quit the dye, and after a while I stopped trying. My hair seems to curl better when abused a bit:p. Several silver wavies on other hair boards have also stated they found their silvers less curly/wavy.

Took my second pic on Feb 1, but haven't had time to upload/edit it until today. Here are my length pics for January and February.

The January Pic (Hair was washed and air-dried that morning).

February - 3 days since the last wash. I debated washing for the photo, but decided not to change my routine just because it was picture day. Also, I could not get my body to be straight back to the camera, every pic I was angled away somehow. Oh well.

Thank you for the compliments/support! No secrets here - I just have read the LHC forum and tried to follow standard procedures.

I wash twice a week (except when I swim I wash immediately after the pool), condition, oil (coconut or tea tree) then put hair up and away. I use a sleep cap but not always. I detangle with my fingers then a wide tooth comb. Diet - nothing special, bad actually - too much sugar (cola), not enough fruits and veggies. Water - I try for 64 oz daily but end up only drinking 40 oz on average. I take Vitamin D and Folic Acid daily, Vitamin C on occasion.

I was truly surprised because I consider my hair to typically grow slowly. We will see what next month brings. :cheese:

February's Picture

I may try and get BF to retake this picture. With this shirt it doesn't look like I've had any growth at all, but in some other pictures I took with a different shirt you can see the difference. The growth this month wasn't much, though. So maybe I'll just leave it until next month and see if things are better.

ETA: If someone can tell me how to make these pictures smaller I would really appreciate it.

JessicaAnn next time you should take a full length shot of your stripy shirt so that we can count the stripes (or at least thats what helpes me) and see the growth, it helps like that. I have just counted your stripes from your shoulder down starting from that top black stripe and you have grown one white and one black stripe this month. Thats a LOT so congratulations!!!

MissBubble I agree with Johannah, you might not see it but we will be a better judge because we arent as attached to your hair as you are (if that makes sense as in a 3rd party type of judge) so post your picture please :)

MissBubble I'm going to agree here. Take the picture and post it. Let us judge. We are seeing growth in shots where the original poster didn't think they had any. And if there is none it's ok too. It's the winter and growth slows for most of us this time of year.

I got a stripped shirt to measure better from now on.
This is my longest layers. It looks quite strange as it was after a twisted bun. But the length is accurate.

The second is a month ago. Not the same shirt but I measured and I had less than 1/5in more. (which may also be wrong (and have none more) as I have waves that vary. I'll use the same shirt from now on.

Lostsoule77
February 8th, 2014, 11:27 AM
I don't trust measurements as they can always be off from one month to the next. It'll be much easier to tell when you're wearing the same shirt. One fifth of an inch is better than no growth. Just keep posting your monthly pictures and don't get down about it. We all have periods of less growth and more growth. ;)

True!

The ends are very dry because of the cold winds of the last 10 days, usually they're not so fizzy.

Giggle aside, after I tugged the short side and loosened those curls, can anyone see any difference between the first one below pic (Jan pic) and the second one (today's pic). I guess every shot will be totally different for me because my curls are unpredictable (need I remind you of the above).

I am going to post mine from Jan 9 and Feb 9. I am getting a cut tomorrow so March will not be longer.
I am strongly considering cutting all my growth for one full year to remove damage so I can grow it out next year in better condition. I am still torn on this idea so the April photos will be the answer I suppose. I should have removed my jacket for Feb photo, I will be using the tattoo as a marker from here out.
The bun waves make it hard to tell but I had good growth this month based on my roots.

Great growth, Erin! I love the color of your hair, by the way. You could compromise on the cutting and just cut a half-inch every two to three months. That way you still get some growth, but cut out the damage a little at a time.

Haha, thank you, I appreciate that! : )))))) It is half of genes (my mother's and sister's hair is also growing very fast) and lifestyle I guess. I also take good care of my hair, so I guess my hair feels comfortable enough to grow. : ))))))

You have such a pretty haircolor! I think we have a very similar haircut going on. I second the suggestion to cut part of your growth while still adding some length. I'm going to start doing the same thing to even up my layers while gaining some length. Your hair looks much thicker in that second picture.


I am going to post mine from Jan 9 and Feb 9. I am getting a cut tomorrow so March will not be longer.
I am strongly considering cutting all my growth for one full year to remove damage so I can grow it out next year in better condition. I am still torn on this idea so the April photos will be the answer I suppose. I should have removed my jacket for Feb photo, I will be using the tattoo as a marker from here out.
The bun waves make it hard to tell but I had good growth this month based on my roots.

Hi everyone! Great comparison pictures so far.

I wasn't sure if I wanted to join this challenge in January, but I did take a photo on January 9th. So today I decided to go for it. At the end of the year, maybe I'll make an animated gif. That might be fun.

Here are January and February.

Here's my photo for February, with January side-by-side for comparison. I don't see a lot of growth between the two photos, possibly because my hair curls out at the ends in both. I'll measure at the end of the month. I was at 21" at the end of January, and I'm hoping for at least 21.5" at the end of this month to stay on track for my goal of APL by the end of May.

I am happier with the color, though. This is after one all-over henna treatment and two Sun-In treatments on the roots only. I'm trying to decrease the discrepancy between the henna over virgin hair (roots to ears) and henna over dyed hair (ears to ends).

I can see growth, even with the ends flipping out. If I look at how much of the pattern your hair is covering in the second photo, and sweep my eyes back and forth, I can see that the second picture is covering about a half-inch more than the first.

So this is my february monthly lenght pic!
It's hard to compare it with the previous one because the first one was a mirror selfie and I wore a black shirt (not the best match with really dark hair for a lenght pic!), so from now I'll wear this striped t-shirt everytime and I'll ask my DBF to take the picture.
The ends are very dry because of the cold winds of the last 10 days, usually they're not so fizzy.

http://i.imgur.com/ImVvxrUl.jpg

So I'm at the awkward Can-I-Call-This? stage, just a inch to reach solid hip lenght and finally consider myself as a long-haired again!

You are at hip already, moving towards BCL. Your hands in this picture are way below hip level, as "hip" is measured by putting your hands at the top of your hip bones. Which I would estimate is at the top of the black stripe that is above your thumbs. Congratulations!

I don't know how tall you are, but I'm also 32" (maybe more....I haven't measured for February yet) and my hair is just grazing the top of my butt crack, lol.

My picture and measure day is today! I don't know if my length photo jeans are clean or dirty, worst case scenario I will do laundry and post tomorrow. :)

Yesterday was my day! Here's my January shot on the left next to yesterday's photo on the right.

I honestly can't tell if there's any difference in growth. Oh well. It feels a little longer, in the shower I can feel it touching my butt crack so I would hope that I might be a month or two from BCL. My measurements were negligible....maybe I over measured January and under measured this month....who knows.

hey everyone -

here is my progress picture from February next to the one I took in January. I can't see much of a difference - then again, if you look closely my hair is sort of curling to the side because I was wearing it in a bun :/ I should probably take a picture tomorrow but I'm afraid that I won't have a chance to do it then (as tomorrow would be exactly one month later). I kinda liked the drawn skirt so I decided to keep it up for now hehe :o

oh and sorry about the weird light - the sun was gone by the time I had a chance to take it so I used photoshop to make it more similar to the jan. pic.

ugh...I think I got the angle a bit wrong also :/ ... ... ... the March picture will be more like the one in January... ... ... a bit frustrating that is.

Did my pictures for this month. Last month hair was freshly washed, this time it is 4 days old. The un-stretched picture I could match up with last months picture very easily. The stretched picture was impossible. Last month I knocked the tripod so the camera was at an angle. I didn't realise until afterwards and couldn't be bothered to retake the pictures.

Un-stretched (Jan's length = yellow line, Feb's length = purple line):

I might just be able to call the very longest wisp 36 inches stretched. It might be 1/4 of a inch more at best un-stretched which would be 32.5 inches. It's really hard to say. It's hard to measure hair that is so fairytaled, wavy and has so much taper. I've been trying to measure the longest clump of hairs, but it does get a bit ridiculous. How many hairs do you measure down to? 5? 50? If I took the majority I as well call it armpit or BSL length and be done with it.

Here is a bonus picture of my one hair that reaches 36.5 inches:

I can't really tell if there is any growth from the pictures either. Aside from possible clothing changes, all the rest of my pictures will be taken in the same spot and from the same distance so It should be easier starting next month.

My routine changed a LOT!

Before LHC I used to wash my hair pretty much everyday with whatever shampoo, I used elastics and always in a terrible ponytail, brushed my hair when wet, I used heat but only a handful of times (maybe 2-3 times when i first did the cut). My hair used to have a lot of dandruff and very oily.

My routine now is that I do the inversion method once a month (minus the oiling and washing), I have stretched my washes to once every 4 days. On each wash day, i do a castor oil treatment for my scalp and coconut oil on my length (Ive used the castor oil once so far but i have used the coconut oil for the past few months on both scalp and length), I take multivitamins/vitamin B, biotin (I just started this a few days ago) and vitamin C. I wear my hair up with sticks, braids, flexi 8, I bought silk pillow cases, wide tooth comb, I S&D on regular basis (so much so that its pretty difficult now to find a split end) with good working scissors. I shampoo my scalp with SLS free shampoo and my length with SLS free conditioner. This is what i do thats new now. My hair now is super soft, no more dandruff and my hair gets greasy but on day 3. I also air dry my hair with as little touching as possible. No heat. How can THIS, make my hair grow THIS fast tho?

Before LHC I used to wash my hair pretty much everyday with whatever shampoo, I used elastics and always in a terrible ponytail, brushed my hair when wet, I used heat but only a handful of times (maybe 2-3 times when i first did the cut). My hair used to have a lot of dandruff and very oily.

My routine now is that I do the inversion method once a month (minus the oiling and washing), I have stretched my washes to once every 4 days. On each wash day, i do a castor oil treatment for my scalp and coconut oil on my length (Ive used the castor oil once so far but i have used the coconut oil for the past few months on both scalp and length), I take multivitamins/vitamin B, biotin (I just started this a few days ago) and vitamin C. I wear my hair up with sticks, braids, flexi 8, I bought silk pillow cases, wide tooth comb, I S&D on regular basis (so much so that its pretty difficult now to find a split end) with good working scissors. I shampoo my scalp with SLS free shampoo and my length with SLS free conditioner. This is what i do thats new now. My hair now is super soft, no more dandruff and my hair gets greasy but on day 3. I also air dry my hair with as little touching as possible. No heat. How can THIS, make my hair grow THIS fast tho?

Tini, what an amazing growth:). Your hair looks really pretty and healthy. This new routine of yours is working great for you!

I changed my routine when I got to bsl a few months after I joined here. Is my hair growing this fast because of the new routine or have I just got to tthe biggest growth spurt of my life??

I do all of your routine apart from the inverted method which i started last night seems to have such positive results for everyone. My scalp isn't oily at all fingers crossed it works for me to :pray: i think its the head upside down and massage.

Thank you Wosie, yeah the waves were from braids and buns :)

Thank you redtuss - so maybe some odd strands are growing faster than the rest? I get that to, my hemline is gone from blunt to U shape now :o

Beautiful hair hoponasu, such amazing shine to it :) Your ends are flipped but i can see lots of growth!

Thank you bunzfan :) Yes it is, i do it sitting on a chair with my head lowered between my knees and i massage for 5 minutes (no oiling tho because i like stretching my washes). Fingers crossed that you get great results! Let me know how it goes!!!

Lucky few strands there cathair looks like a race to who grows faster haha :)

Thank you Lostsoule77 (if you were referring to me as well) - I LOVE your hair so much!!!!!!!!!! If i met you in real life i would have to restrain myself from touching it so i dont look creepy haha and you deffinatly look like fingertip :)

Thanks Snorman :) You make my day!

Thank you so much Itarille :)

Thank you duchess67. I think it is :) Will see what happens next month - I feel like i NEED to be at waist so i can stop obsessing over its length already and im dying to trim!! :)

Nice hair, reminds me of saffron buns... *thinks back to Christmas time with a wistful sigh* :D I always resize my piccies in Paint. Easy and quick to do! Here's how: Right click on the picture you want to resize and then click on the "Open with Paint" option. When your picture is displayed, click "Change size" and then I normally choose to minimize my pic so that it's 10 percent of it's original size. Ta daa! Hope that helped. :blossom:

Here is my pic for January and February, they were taken in the beginning of each of the months, but I have been moving around so many times lately, this is the 3rd place I lived in the last few months and I'm moving again next weekend, so the pics were in my camera until yesterday.
I measured my hair a week ago, it was 44.7 inches then, had to chop off a lot of the growth, a couple of months ago, due to mistreatment, so its only gotten about 4.5 inches longer since I joined 2.5 half years ago.
So now it's time for a change, want to really pamper my hair from now on, see what change that will make in length and general feel of my hair.

What beautiful hair i know exactly what you mean I've recently gone back to what works, treatments seem to help massively as do pre wash oil treatments. What's interesting to me is that a lot of the super-lengths on LHC in another thread have said that they don't do any deep treatments. I am like you, bunzfan, my hair really needs pampering to get it to look healthy at longer lengths. Here I am at waist and didn't do any S&D until now, rarely any deep treatments, and was doing CWC every other day, including a clarifying shampoo 1-2x a week when I went swimming. My habits have changed quite a bit since October. I always wore it up before now, but I'm learning the virtues of CO-washing, deep treatments, and S&D.

I took this photo on 19th Feb, which was one month from the first one on 19th Jan, but only got round to uploading it today! My hair had been in a cinnabun all day, and so although I'd brushed it it is still wavy and slightly fluffy, which makes it a bit tricky to compare, but I measured and found that I'd grown by 0.5 inches.

So, my date to check my hair was the 24th, and I didn't have time (and I can't find my charger). But, I measured it today and there seems to be a whole THREE inches of growth! I last measured 1/24 and took my pic then. I averaged out my growth to about .5 a month (.5 for the 1.5 of new growth from 11/24 to then). But 3 inches in one month seems extreme to me, even though I measured twice. hmmmm

I'm a pessimist by nature, but still, even if I got 1 inch and totally screwed everything up, yay!!!!

hopefully, I can find my charger soon :)

Now it's hard to see what's going on with my length because 1. I'm wearing 2 different shirts, 2. different backgrounds, and 3. my hair was longer in the picture to the left. I ended up cutting off about 3-4 inches to even everything up, and I also trimmed my layers. The picture on the right is how I will be taking my monthly pictures from now on :)

Haha not sure if it's a fluke it'll be a month around the 17th of march so if i have extra growth i might start beliving it i'll give it a go for a few months the massage is helping my scalp.

Well here is mine. The picture on the left is January and the one of the right is February. My hair is flipped to the side, but i put the red line according to the part of my hair that isn't flipped so much.

You can definitely see some growth! :)

It seems my sides are catching up (then again, my hair was very flippy last month, making it look shorter). :disco: I cut 0.5 cm of my longest ends a few days after my last photo shoot in February, as I wanted to even my hair out, but I don't know if I'll continue doing so just yet. I want some more length before I get more serious about getting everything even and blunt.

I'm happy for another thing today, DBF counted my circumference as being 9 cm (3.5 in), getting closer to the iii thickness (lost a lot of hair due to skin disorder). :D

So pretty hair!! =)


I can see the difference, micro trimming has thickened up your ends. You've got thick pretty hair!

Thank you, folks! :flower:


Is it alright for me to join? :) I joined the 2013 thread and it was awesome seeing my growth throughout the year, so I started doing it again!

But here is my progress from January to today, Feb 27th.

Now it's hard to see what's going on with my length because 1. I'm wearing 2 different shirts, 2. different backgrounds, and 3. my hair was longer in the picture to the left. I ended up cutting off about 3-4 inches to even everything up, and I also trimmed my layers. The picture on the right is how I will be taking my monthly pictures from now on :)

Your hair is gorgeous! That shine, that thickness! And even though your hair is shorter than mine, I look at your ends and think "ooh, I can't wait until my ends look like that." Patience, Naiadryade, patience! It's nice to be reminded why I'm microtrimming and not getting any longer.


Naiadryade How much do you cut each time? I’m thinking of doing this when i get to waist as well. Great progress :)

Thanks! I trim just a teeny tiny amount each time, like 1/8" to 1/4", but I do it 3 times a month. (My trimming schedule is over in the Trimming and the Moon thread, if you're interested.) People do it lots of ways, though my split-prone hair seems to be benefiting from the small frequent trims... it's hard to say, but I think this is going faster than I thought it would based on my not-trimming rate of length gain.

Beautiful hair! I can definitely see the growth.

Here's mine... will update my signature later. I only grew 1/4th an inch in February.

Hmm, I think I drew my blue line up a little too high. Oops.

Here's mine. I see a bit of growth, but have to start micro trimming regularly to get rid of those layers. I hate the tapered look. On March 19th or 20th (Spring Equinox) I plan to take off half an inch.

This is my feb growth. I think it was an inch :joy: I'll have hubs double check my measure when he get home tomorrow, but it want to measure on the first of the month. I have a photo from 2/3 in my siggy for comparison. 1 down, 16 to go :)

Thinking growy thoughts :)

Thanks for the encouragement. :lol: I have to laugh... I think it could be two years to hip at the rate of 1/4th inch a month, lol! :popcorn: Pulling up a chair. This may take a while.

Hands are on hips as a reference. Each stripe is 1", so I have about 3" until hip.

Your hair is growing really well Stray_mind, if you didnt have that wave in your hair which im guessing is from an updo, youd pass the black line a little bit as well :)

Such shiny hair Wosie :) Looks thick and beautiful :)

LauraLongLocks Congrats on the growth :) Is your waist line on the green line tho?

You've had some good growth there.

LauraLongLocks lol I feel the same about tailbone and I have another five inches to grow then I'll micro trim next year I think.

Thank you so much, Tini. :D Here's hoping I will have a "Tini growth spurt" one of these days! *waiting 'patiently' :eye:*

Tini, you've been always sweet and encouraging with your comments, appreciate it. Thanks :)

bunzfan, it's nice to hear positive remarks, thanks so much :)

LauraLongLock, I think you'll be at hip in 2 months :)

patiencneeded, you've got beautiful wavy hair :) my waves seems to be disappearing as my hair gets longer. When summer and humid months return my hair might get wavy again..

Karo, love your hair, pretty indeed! :)

Like Wosie, I too hope someday I'll get growth spurt like Tini's, haha
