Here's my March photo! Just looking at it everyday it's hard to see that it actually grows, but I'm actually able to make a normal English braid now without all the layers falling out. I'm not measuring and I don't really care about inches, but in a month it'll be one year since I last dyed my hair, so I'll se if I can catch the demarcation line on photo.

LauraLongLocks Congrats on the growth :) Is your waist line on the green line tho?
I think I put that blue line up a bit too high, but waist is not quite as low as the green. Blue is level with my elbows, that's what I was going with for some reason, lol!




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

One can always hope, right?

Wosie & duchess67 HAHA you guys are funny :flower::)) Hey, even im hoping to get that "Tini growth spurt" this month so I dont blame you :bottomsup: :)) Its fall here, im scared of slowing down because i really want to be at waist and I dont want to take forever *sign*:knuckle:

askan I see a LOT of growth there, congrats!!!

LauraLongLocks Sorry, i hope i didnt come across as the "know it all" meannie ... Im just trying to figure out exactly where waist line is on everyone and then i compare it to mine lol. I go by where my last rib is which seems to be slightly higher than the actually gap... if that makes sense . Anyway, enough of my ramblings. I think that you will definitely be at hip by the end of this year, if not passed it as well :)

I'm already at my goal, 32". But I took pictures every month for 10 months. They are in my albums. I will keep taking pix until I have my dream hair:)

I think it is a great way to track your overall health. Some months, my hair grew 3/4 inch. Some months, it thickened quite a bit, but with average growth. It's also fun to watch the hemline slowly even out by trims, and the highlights and layers grow out.

You may need to find a salon that specializes in long hair and helping girls to grow long hair That is what I had to do otherwise I just got chopped finally starting to make progress in length Now the place where I go only gives me dustings Good Luck
I'm in. I'm at collarbone right now if I pull the longer stuff straight, maybe just a tad past it. I am optimistically hoping for BSL at the end of the year.I had cut it al off to like two inches over a year ago and growing it out to shoulder with trims was terrible, especially with people cutting more than I asked. :/ Anyway I can make a little ponytail folded over or a gibson tuck. At BSL I can make a solid bun with U pins. These hair ties are going to eat my hair. Anyway, monthly progress. Hoping to go with no trims. Rock on, Hairy People... ;)

Thanks, but I think I will just wait until it's long enough to cut it myself again. I haven't trimmed in just over a year and I hope to avoid it this year too. :) I hate paying people to do something I do better myself anyway.

No, not at all. I actually think my body is slightly turned in that pic, too, so it's harder to tell. I'm a dork and didn't put the line in the right place, ha ha. Gosh, I hope I'm well past hip by the end of the year. I was really aiming for TBL. I might have to reconsider that goal, ha ha!

Ravenwind Definitely not to late to join. Looove your hair :)


I agree that it's a bit hard to see the difference (at least from my incompetent eyes) but your hair is really pretty I must say. Shiny and beautiful. And the shirt you have on the right picture is a really good way to measure your hair from now! Good luck with your growth progress! ^^


At first looking at your pics i was like wow!!! hair growth, then i realized in one picture you are closer to the camera than the other i think there is still growth but you can see it more when you were a stripe top or dress ...beautiful shiny hair . Wow.


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.



Thank you!! :)

I am a little late this month but my growth rate has been amazing. It grew 1.125 inches in 34 days! I am not sure if it is because I started taking Royal Jelly, a baby aspirin per day, or just a random growth spurt but my nails have been growing like crazy too. http://i268.photobucket.com/albums/jj34/t_ballet26/hair/12674cb7-dc46-426f-9234-46d98d00f8dc.jpg (http://s268.photobucket.com/user/t_ballet26/media/hair/12674cb7-dc46-426f-9234-46d98d00f8dc.jpg.html) This is from December 29th, January 29th, and March 2nd

My hair looks a bit ah I dont know:p I think my last hair wash went a bit wrong and/or I put too much oil in it, or I need to clarify. But! My hair grew:D (sorry that I´m not standing exactly the same in the pictures, that makes it a bit harder to see, but I don´t know how to make them the same:p = it´s easier this way)

My March photo. It's really hard to make DBF take pictures from the same distance and angle. Poor thing just sighs and nod when I ask him to photgraph my hair :p
The weird bump-wave at the nape is from wearing a pony when drying my hair. Aaaaaalmost waist! (Blue line). I think the middle back part grows a lot faster than the rest...

Colourful, Naiadryade, thank you very much. I don't get many compliments on my hair so it really means a lot to me :o
Tini, my hair allways has this flippy kind of wave, especially when i'm airdrying and don't comb it.. I really didn't expect so much growth, so i'm really happy about it. If it keeps up i'll soon be at APL wich is my mini goal.

I love this thread, everyone shows progress if not in lenght, then in hairs' overall condition and it's allways exciting how it will be next month.

Congrats on the growth t_ballet26, Thats a LOT! Your hair looks really nice :) What program do you use to place your pictures in line like that? Thank you. I use Corel Painshop Pro X4 to line up my pictures. It is still a challenger to line them all up, I can't seem to master taking the picture exactly the same each time. Probably because by the time I take another one I have forgotten what I did last time. I just crop them in all the same size and line them up in a new document and draw a line to check that they line up.

freesia Sorry to see that you havent gained any growth this month, but that will happen, dont feel discouraged! What’s your hair care routine by the way?

Thanks Tini, I'll be allright :) . What I know is that my hair has grown a total 1.5" in 4 months, of which I have trimmed 0.5" because I'm trying to grow out my layers, because I don't want to get rid of all the length at once to get an even hemline :rant:. So that's an average 0.25"/month which I guess is hard to detect.

My routine is weekly washing, with sls-free shampoo and a pre-wash oil treament, clarifying every end of the month and microtrimming every 2 months.

You and others in this thread have an incredible growth rate! I'm probably the slowest :p

These are terrible comparison pictures... They weren't taken in the same conditions but I had no time and then I decided to trim my hair a tiny bit a few days after. :p I don't think my hair grew but it does feel like it did, especially when I am in the shower. :p First one is from 2 February and the other from 1 March.

Here is this month's picture in comparison to the last two. It doesn't look like a ton of growth, but it feels thicker and longer and the layers are laying a lot better. And I swear my hair is not as dry as it looks in these pictures. There is just something about that hallway light that makes it look crunchy.

If you follow the fourth white line down on your right sleeve, then follow it across, there's some obvious growth. Especially comparing January to March. Also, it just looks very shiny, not crunchy.

You all have so beautiful hair that I feel embarassed to post mine...
Anyway, that´s me with semi-wet hair, otherwise I cannot see the actual length.
I had to search for more photos of last month to count the stripes correctly because I couldn't believe that my longest part is one whole stripe below. But it happened...
I also measured after two months. I had one inch since January. The red line is waist, my goal for now.

I've been working a lot of hours and oversleeping a lot, so I'm behind by a few days... but here's my growth pictures. I've been trying to grow out a pixie since May last year, so I've been taking progress pics from the front since pixies need so many mullet trims. But things are pretty evened up now and I'm at a solid chin length if not longer, so maybe I should start doing back-facing pictures like everyone else now?

Also, I've been able to do a decent ponytail for a while now, minus a few stray chunks from the front =D

The back parts look well past chin now Ashflower89. I vote for pictures from front and back :D more pictures are always good!

Oh my, that looks so much longer Sterlyn! You've gained a whole 3 stripes! It does look a littler straighter, but I still think you have grown a lot :)

@ cathair, it has grown some, my hair is wrapping further in my buns:p than it did a few weeks ago, I'll take it if I grew more than my 1/2" a month. :D

Ashflower89, your hair has really made progress, it's a lot further down your neck than it was in Jan :)

LOL seriously guys I would love to claim more than 1.25" in growth in a month, but I think it is the lack of curl. Admittedly it did seem to sprout this month and if it stays, I'm going to seriously review what I was eating or doing this month that might have changed it. I am willing to bet when humid weather comes back I will probably look like I didn't grow at all or even lost length.

But until then, thanks you guys rock;) and I'll just pretend that my hair is just growing at a fantabulous rate. :p

Hey all lovely-heads, it's so much fun to see your lenght shots! The variety of colours, textures and length is wonderful!

Here's my contribution for March, took it last night and it has grown quite a bit since february!
Measured in at 68,5 cms/26,9 inches which means it grew 3 cms.
In the pictures it looks like it grew more but that is just because it was a bit wavy in the February-shot. It looks darker due to the lack of sunlight from my windows and from a castor oil DT I did not long ago. :)

camera charger CHECK
stripey shirt CHECK
exact angle and distance from camera... er, not so much.

So, I found that I got a better pic a couple of steps further away from where I put the camera, and that the next shelf up was more even with my head, thus a more accurate shot. Also, my length is so uneven (sob) right now that I'm counting my length from where the bulk of my hair falls. In the second pic, I have the belt placed at my goal, the widest part of my hips, which doesn't correspond with any specific body marker on me, but falls between BCL and classic. I'll consider having met that goal when the bulk of my length is there. No trimming in 2014, so I have to live with the unevenness. Really wish I had checked my hemline before I made that commitment, but oh well.

It's very barely waist so I'll wait til it feels more waist-ey ;) Last time I called it at 70 cms and there's still 1,5 cm left!

I think much is due to the keeping it up-challenge, washing just once a week and taking up jogging again!

I know what you mean, it feels like it's always the same length and never grows! The pictures are good for measurement and not constantly fiddling/worrying about it. :)
Nah, I wish! ;) It's henna, but I am growing out my natural blonette-ish colour ^^ It's natural a little bit further then my ears now so it's getting there, when it's long enough I might start to think about microtrimming the henna off but I'm ok with it for now, they blend quite nicely together.

Here is the march photo (and february photo for comparison). It seems grown a lot, even it is wavy in newest one. Maybe some of the growth is due to head tilt, different position or something... The white space between blue stripes is about an inch.

Arwenlily The best way to track monthly growth through pictures is if you stand straight with the camera facing straight at your back and using a self timer placed in the same spot each time and your position being the same as well OR have someone take a photo for you... otherwise it will be very hard to tell whats going on - different angles will always give you different results in length. Anyhow - I love your colour and those curls, your hair looks amazing at any length - LUCKY you! :) Congrats on your growth! We have about the same growth rate :)

Kina Congrats on your growth!!! Your hair is beautiful!!

Iulana oh that thickness and those waves - STUNNING!!!! I see lots of growth to so congrats!!!!!!!!

TrapperCreekD OH MY GOSH your hair is so thick, LOVE IT!!!! I can see your hair tilted forward in the second picture and maybe a little tilted in the first picture to :o Congrats on your growth!!!

alishaxmarie AHHHH your hair has grown so much!!! You are my inspiration!!!!!! My hair is pretty much your length in the Feb picture, I can only DREAM for my hair to grow as much as your hair did in the March photo - WOW! thats a LOT!!! Congrats for hitting waist, you might even be a little bit passed it now :O

Wosie I have a U shaped hemline grown out naturally from being blunt before - I want it blunt again but i dont want to cut a huge chunk of it so yeah i will be trimming my longest layers until the rest of the hair catches up - I wonder if Feyes method will work well for this using the blunt haircut technique?

Your hair has grown so MUCH Colourful, I call waist on you now!!! CONGRATS!!!

XcaliburGirl Your hair has grown HEAPS already!!! I think your head might be slightly tilted in the last picture from the right tho? Congrats on your growth!

Congrats on your growth jonnaps!!

Federica Amazing the colour diffence the different lights has put through your hair - looks more redish in the right picture unles you have dyed it? Congrats on your growth!!

I want to get in on this! I think documenting it and watching it travel down my back will be very cool! I took a length shot on the 22nd of February (my siggy pic), so I will take and post one for March in 10 days! :) I think I've gained some length this month. It feels longer :)

ETA: I will have to go find a stripped shirt...

Arwenlily, the shirt is really dark and thus it's hard to perfectly pinpoint where your hair lies! It ought to be better if you use a lighter shirt, as your hair's colour look very similar to the shirt's. :)

Tini, love your peppy posts! :D Yes, I'm sure Feye's hair trimming method will work fine and dandy for you! Your hair is so long that the risk of making unsightly mistakes is slim. I only have APL hair, so I don't know if Feye's method works as well on my length, but I will still try. I'll only cut 1-2 centimetres and after this cut I won't cut my hair at all (bar from S&Ds) until the autumnal equinox in September. :) I've been going back and forth about cutting the longest layer more regularly until they're all even, but it seems I'm too attached to my length at this point... My shortest layer is collarbone length, so far away from my longest 'un. :tmi:

Congrats to everyone and it will be so funny to see the whole progression at the end of the year!

Tini, I've actually made henna the day before I took the march picture, but so it was the month before if I remeber well, my hair colour changes A LOT in different lights and plus you can see very clearly that I have 5 inches left of red chemical dye on the bottom of my hair. Still growing it out while microtrimming.

The dress is from H&M basic collection, I bought it last year (here in Italy) but I'm pretty confident you still can find the same dress or a very similar one since usually the basics collections don't variate so much between one year to another.

So true, Heidi!

I'm feeling like my hair has gotten longer, so the curiosity got the best of me and I did a quick measurement. If I didn't do it wrong, I'm at 31". I measured twice to be sure. March 1st I was 30.25" no matter how many times I measured. This has me totally stoked and looking forward to my April 1st measurement and length shot. I hope to see VISIBLE growth and maybe another 1/4th inch on the measuring tape. That would be so cool, and would completely make up for February's dismal 1/4th inch growth. So exciting to think I'm finally past 30" since I got there in November, but apparently lost more length in my December 5th trim than I realized.

Don't get discouraged, stachelbeere. It's difficult to compare these two pictures without them both having the same clear reference point. I've noticed with my own pictures that the armpit crease looks further down when wearing a long-sleeved top than bare. My guess is that you will be pleasantly surprised in a month or two when you can compare against the stripes.

stachelbeere if I hold something straight up to the top of your pictures and use the divide in the middle of the two to make sure it's at a right angle to that, your head seems to be at the same height in both.

If put something straight across the bottom of your hair, it looks like you have grown the the length of the last black stripe your hair touches on your dress :) I think your hair has grown.

I bought a stripy dress for measuring last Friday, it looks spookily similar to yours! Same colour stripes, same length sleeves. Oops, sorry :/ Due to measure in on Sunday.

March 15th, 2014, 07:21 AM
hey cathair! I have a certain way of comparing these types of photos if they are aligned well so that the head and angle are the same - I scroll the page down until the hair line of the two pictures are at the top of the bar of my web browser and then I can see the difference. to be fair I - think my elbows are in a different position but I'm not too sure how to interpret this. Maybe it's just the fact that I'm wearing sleeves...idk... I also noticed that my hair grew a tiny bit...

as for the dress - it's very likely that you bought the same one, I bought mine in Primark :D I think that in the back of my head I thought that it'd be good for measuring purposes, too hehe ;)

Arwenlily You are on the right track, if you could stand at a bit more distance just so that your whole torso is in the picture that would be good, also a better lightening would show us exactly where your ends are on the shirt :)

Thanks Wosie, I like giving feedback :) I dont think you have to trim at all for now unless you feel like your hair is getting splits from some sort of damage? Even when i had my hair in crappy hair bands i still didnt get all that many splits.

Awww thank you both Iulana & duchess67 *blushes*, good to know im not annoying (I thought i might be :O)

Federica, I LOVE your hair colour changes, my hair does a fair bit of that to - sounds like you are on the right track :)

Thanks SOO much you guys! These are some of my first compliments from LHC so it really means a lot to me! :grnbiggri This is my natural color, there's actually a lot of highlights from the sun in there that I've taken for granted until now. The only bad thing about about the sun streaks is that I have a really noticeable blond patch on the top of my nautilus bun now since I've been wearing it a lot lately haha.

I'm pretty short but I think my head was tilted slightly back, at least in the right picture, so I think it looks super long compared to how it feels and usually looks. Plus, wavy hair never looks quite the same anyways. The next time I feel down about something, I'll have to remember that I'm somebody's hairspiration (who doesn't enjoy a made-up word?) :cool:

Yep, it's the same dress! Great minds think alike :D I am quite pleased to be honest. Last time I bought a dress that length, I wore it out and was informed it was a t-shirt not a dress :blushing: so it's good to be sure! I was a little bit nervous about it.

Ok, so I did it today. Took 2 pictures this month. One to compare to last month and one to compare in the future with the striped dress. I'm pretty sure in January my measurement was 43.5" with racers at 44". February was 44" solid, I forget the racers. This month I got 45" with racers almost at 46". Of course, I don't know that the tape started at exactly the same spot each month. It's good to know I'm actually getting some growth since I don't think I can be too far off each time. I'll rely more on the pictures that the measurements though. ;) I can't see any real growth though. Hoping I'll see evidence with the striping to measure.

hehe I always align my photos on photoshop too - I make sure that the head is always on the same height which gives me an idea how much my hair grew (or how much it didn't grr)

as for that dress - I think it depends on how tall you are - I'm quiet petite so it definitely covers my butt well and 1/3 of my thigh in the front :P On a taller person it'd be a tunic or indeed a tshirt :P

So I don't like cutting them, I have to admit that, but at the same time I want to have a blunt hemline so I will have to get rid of the layers at some point... I just don't know when's the right time. :tmi: I could maintain at APL, but I don't know... APL feels rather short to me, especially with layers, so maybe I will start maintaining at BSL. :hmm: What do you think you would do in my situation?

Heyas. Here is my photos, my ends were so difficult to tame today, it kept flipping upwards taking a LOT of the length away so I had to do my shots at different times and today is the only day i can do it on because ive got a super busy week ahead :( Anywhow, last week i meassured at 76cm but then i trimmed 1 cm off so now i meassure at 75cm. Thats OK with me :) I seem to grow about 2 cm a month so after that trim you wont see much of a difference in these pictures, ah well. Cant wait for next months photos now :) Hoping to finally hit waist!! Still hoping as usual.

As you can see, i like taking two types of photos - with and without my shirt on just so i can follow my progress better until i reach my goal of waist :)

I find it difficult taking photos with a book on my head now because my shirt goes up each time i lift my arm up to place the book on my head and then my hair gets out of place and by the time the timmer hits, i have to rush and most pictures ends up blurry - today was an extra annoying day at doing that! so glad its done now!

When I visited my mom, I asked her to trim an inch or so, she cut off 5 to 6 inches, didn't even go a good job. When I asked why, said she was trying to cut it straight across to take off all the layers. I was very upset, later had to go to a salon to get a proper hair cut, my sig pic is when I had that cut.

I learned my lesson.

Thank you Wosie :D :flowers: I dont think its a hurry to stop and maintain for you right now, you could do it at BSL or MBL. You will know when the right time comes, for me it started at MBL and now that im super close to waist i want to trim and keep trimming because it feels really good to see my hemline get straighter and better looking than what it used to be. I will try push it for waist now since im so close and I might do regular trims from then on - or maybe I will just stop to maintain at waist like hoponasu is doing. Ahhh decisions decisions, I hope i havent confused you more :) 

duchess67 :bowtome: :blossom: - Do you use the Feyes method for trimming?

I hope so bunzfan :rockerdud I'm pretty puzzled as to why i feel like my hair is longer after the trim, maybe its because my ends were "hiding" being flipped somehow and now my ends lay more low?! Hmmm...

Thank you alishaxmarie Its actually autumn here, I think my hair may thrive a little on this weather since i have to wear my hair up almost all the time because its to windy on most days, plus i dont want it tangled on jackets and what not. I hope my growth wont slow down until i reach waist *fingers crossed* - I'm always sceptic as if "its to good to be true" so each month i hold my breath at measurement time :) I will post a photo one of these days then - challenge accepted! :deal:

Lostsoule77 You sure that dress is long enough? Seems like your hair will be covering it in no time :) Congrats on your growth!

I seem to have grown approximately nothing this month *shrugs*
I guess having a hair measuring dress with have to count as progress this month.

I have a suspicion that this dress is to blame for hair that won't grow... it's a curse! Dress needs to be burned! :p

it's quiet tricky... I can't really see where your hair ends - but it must have grown...or the two of us just had a stall. because of the dress ;)

I can kind of see his point, compared to his hair it is invisible. He is blessed with 1b iii hair that grew from an inch long to roughly armpit length in about a year! He got the good hair genes. Even when he under cuts his hair is twice as thick as mine. I don't think he understands it can be hard to grow hair.

Length shot from yesterday! I grew an inch (according to the tape measure) last month, from 40.5 inches to 41.5 inches. I can see growth, but I wouldn't have guessed it was an inch. I'll trust the tape measure though, I like its numbers!

This time I finger combed my hair while it was drying and then brushed once it was dry, so it is much straighter (and also looks even thinner than usual!)

Impressive! One inch is amazing, and it DOES show. I'm looking at part of the pattern on your dress and your hair is covering almost all of that triangle part right below the curve of your bottom in the last pic. Great growth! Did you do anything special in the last month, or was this a blessing from the hair gods?

April 1st is almost here! I have high hopes for better growth in March than I had in February. I've been faithfully drinking protein shakes everyday. I think I may have missed one or two days, but most of my protein counts every day have been well over 100 grams. I really, really, really hope my April 1st measurement is 31" or more. February 1st was 30" and March 1st was 30.25" so if I made it to 31" that will make up for the dismal .25" growth I got in February.

Heyas. Here is my photos, my ends were so difficult to tame today, it kept flipping upwards taking a LOT of the length away so I had to do my shots at different times and today is the only day i can do it on because ive got a super busy week ahead :( Anywhow, last week i meassured at 76cm but then i trimmed 1 cm off so now i meassure at 75cm. Thats OK with me :) I seem to grow about 2 cm a month so after that trim you wont see much of a difference in these pictures, ah well. Cant wait for next months photos now :) Hoping to finally hit waist!! Still hoping as usual.

As you can see, i like taking two types of photos - with and without my shirt on just so i can follow my progress better until i reach my goal of waist :)

I find it difficult taking photos with a book on my head now because my shirt goes up each time i lift my arm up to place the book on my head and then my hair gets out of place and by the time the timmer hits, i have to rush and most pictures ends up blurry - today was an extra annoying day at doing that! so glad its done now!

Oh, and I got a pleasant surprise when I measured in. I am at 31" at last! I never thought I'd get past thirty inches, I was stuck there since my November 27th measurement (trimmed on December 5th, but really only thought a half inch was cut off... maybe it was more). Anyway, it's delightful to have some progress after last month's dismal 1/4th inch. I've been drinking a protein shake every day, and making sure my protein intake is over 100 grams a day, usually about 120 grams.

...Bun waves. I did my first successful bun today, and it held like a rock, so I didn't want to take it down. Resulted in a rather deep wave near the ends. Hair grew half an inch (hard to tell with waves, it'll take a few more months until it gets straighter and length will be clearly seen). The right side looks funky in both pictures, but especially so this month--what's up with that? x*) It kinda looks like the sides are catching up to the longest layers, but maybe it's just an illusion. :hmm:

And yes, an inch gained since my November 27th measurement has me very delighted. No trims this year, so I am hanging onto every last millimeter of growth!

^ Thank you, LLL, much appreciated. :'D :blossom: I think my hair will look kinda like yours when it gets long again, and I'm very much looking forward to it!

Hmm, 3/5 posts on this page are made by me, I think I'll go and take a breather now. :laugh:

April month shot of my hair. I'm glad to see a difference even after trimming an inch on Spring Equinox.

Can't thank Ashflower89 enough for starting this fantastic thread or else I wouldn't have bothered to document my hair growth by taking pics.

...Bun waves. I did my first successful bun today, and it held like a rock, so I didn't want to take it down. Resulted in a rather deep wave near the ends. Hair grew half an inch (hard to tell with waves, it'll take a few more months until it gets straighter and length will be clearly seen). The right side looks funky in both pictures, but especially so this month--what's up with that? x*) It kinda looks like the sides are catching up to the longest layers, but maybe it's just an illusion. :hmm:

Stray_mind, your hair does look longer to me. Look at the right side, hair has crossed the black line, so much it has grown :) That is the beauty of taking hair photos, there's proof of growth.

It didn't grow as much as last month, but it was expected, so i wasn't very disappointed. :)

I'm so inspired by all of you! I'll get a length photo up for march later today! Such pretty hair. You make me both inspired, jealous and impatient ;) Yours is very nice and thick and will likely grow a lot faster than mine. I took a very long time (about 4.5 years) to grow from shoulder to waist, because I trimmed every 3-4 months, and probably lost a lot more length than I realized. That was before I was serious about growing my hair.

Here's my 2014 growth chart updated for April now... they arent perfectly lined up like I wanted, and my hair was not happy with being straightened so it looks a bit weird but whatever, I can see growth! Yayyyy!

Friday is my photo-day, just hope I remember. Planning on a pamper evening then, after a sick work-week :P
I've done some S&D-ing so I'm not sure it will be much growth, but perhaps a little. At least it feels longer. Goes past nipple now, even if not using a bra. That's is success for me! :D

Alrighty here's my monthly update! I trimmed on the 20th and she took about an inch off the nape and a quarter inch off the front so it doesn't show a lot of length but the layers are longer! I've decided to keep my first picture as the day of the cut for motivation lol.

I had no idea hair really made good progress in just one month! Now, I feel like I can forecast what kind of hair I might have for the Summer, etc. I'd LOVE to get it pulled up in the heat.

In my attempt to get past the neck phase, I've been "scritching". Hope it helps.

This thread is so much fun to follow. I appreciate those who are starting from pixies, and really am inspired by those (most everybody, lol) who is ahead of me.

Here is my most recent pic! My blunt hemline seems to be becoming a natural U shape. I haven't trimmed since mid-August and don't have any actual damage or splits at this time, so I'm still not trimming. My hands are on my hips in this picture, right where my pants sit.

For comparison sake, here is my picture from March 1.

There seems to be a HUGE difference between the two. The 4/1/14 pic was 3 days after washing, the 3/1/14 pic was wash day and still slightly damp.

Thanks again for all the really awesome compliments :)

oatmealpie Congrats on your growth! I see a fair bit of growth in each shot!

joesgirl2011 Welcome to the club!! Really nice starting point/cut!

katelinn I can see some growth but its hard to tell how much because you dont have a stripy/patterned shirt, do you measure as well? - Anyhow, congrats on your growth :)

Congrats on your growth ashke50 - I admire your hair every time i see it, so beautiful :)

I love that braid BeccaAngel, so feminine.

Congrats on your growth Nadine <3!!

Congrats on your growth Kate199023, why are your pictures stretched out like that tho?

Stray_mind, I dont know what you're talking about because i see a LOT of growth - your hair is completely over that black line!!! Congrats!

Awesome growth there Wosie, your hair now is pretty much touching base with the next gray line, thats a LOT! Congrats!

So much growth duchess67, how much is it in inches now? Congrats!!

Congrats on your growth Ashflower89!!! :)

Lyv Your hair looks amazing, so thick now! Congrats!!

Lazy Loop I would keep the stripy shirt to, it will be easier to tell growth that way. Congrats!

Its hard to tell how much growth you've had Iulana, have you measured with the tape as well? Love those braid waves :)

patienceneeded, Your hair is getting longer and soooo much longer each month, its very inspiring to see. Looks like it really wont take very long at all to reach hip! Congrats on such amazing growth!!!!

I see that as always you've taken the time to go thru each post and showered compliments on all of us :)

I haven't measured my hair, so no idea how many is it in inches now. A couple of months back when I started measuring it kind of became an obsession. That's when I realized it isn't healthy and so I stopped. When I visit my mom this month I shall ask her to measure my hair. Thanks Tini.

Thanks a bundle, duchess67 & Tini! Even though I only gained half an inch last month it felt like it grew much more; it just started to feel noticeably longer lately... :o

arihS, very pretty hair! You are definitely a 2a to me, if that's your natural texture. It's also hard to believe my hair is longer than yours (?), yours look way longer to me!

Lyv Your hair looks amazing, so thick now! Congrats!!

Thank you! Now that the parts that were thinned are growing out it seems like its constantly getting thicker, I've had it thinned since I was a kid so I'm curious to see how thick it'll be once it's all one length!

Thank you Wosie! Unfortunately I´m not able to see your hair yet, so I wouldn´t know if it´s longer or not;) But your right that it´s not 22 inch anymore:p I didn´t pay any attention to that after I registrated here. I think it´s 24 inch now or a bit more, not sure exactly. But yours is 22 inch too, right? so, then I can´t imagine your hair to be much shorter;) (although I can´t see it haha). Hm, about the 2a, it´s my natural texture yes, although I´ve had it in buns and braids in most pictures, also it depends on the way I wash it, how straight or ´curly´ it is. Maybe it´s time to change that information:p
