Yay wosie congratulations! :joy::cheese::disco::cheer:

Such amazing growth! Have you been trimming because your hemline is so much thicker now! Your hair looks gorgeous and thanks for the coke and cake.

Thank you so much, eva888! :flower: I've definitely been trimming, especially the past few months... I'm growing out from a pixie, so the under layers have been noticeably longer than the top ones. You can see in the January picture that there is a big wave in the middle of my hair, that was where my shortest layer was back then. :) Indeed, I would've been shoulder length in that picture, had I not kept my longer layers!

I just saw that you've had some great growth between May-November yourself; spectacular! (Psst, what're your secrets? :o)

November 1

I think it's getting shorter.

I'm going to be at waist forever. Maybe the air dry while napping and brush through after made it lay less straight in today's pic. The first one I brushed a few times while damp and it got very straight so maybe hung longer.

Either way I think the hemline is OK, what do you guys think? I mean it's a very deep V/drastic layered haircut so of course most of my hair is shorter than that longest bit at my waist so the longest part isn't so very thick but at least it's not see through or scraggly to my eyes. I couldn't find any white dots or splits so I'm going to skip the monthly microtrim and just grow in November. I want to make some progress darnit, this is ridiculous. I've been at waist my whole life.

Wow, lots of great progress here.

Askan, I don't see the unevenness, it looks like you did a good job to me!

Jennah, it's great to see a whole year! It looks to me like your curl pattern has tightened and yet you still have decent progress :blossom:

Katyusha, your hair is dreamy. I love the colour so much, and the trim has neatened up the ends a lot!

Eva888, you have come a very long way! Growing out is always a pain but it is worth it in the end - no maintenance!

Wosie, your hair looks so silky and shiny and long, it's lovely! I can see you've been eliminating your layers, it looks great.

Leilani, I like your hemline because I think it draws attention to your slim waist. But up to you!

Ashflower89, I have a tattoo that I was measuring by too! It's totally covered now so I have to look for freckles :lol:

I didn't make much vertical progress this month. But I've been shedding like crazy: autumn + new job with long hours + health scare stress (which ended up being nothing) so I'm just grateful that it doesn't appear to be a lot thinner. Anyway it's quite wavy today so I guess if I brushed it, it would look longer - but that would be cheating :D

leilani, I can only hope my hair'll look as pretty as yours when it's waist length. :') Your compliment makes me so happy! Just like two_wheels, I've also had a rather long bout of hair shedding (autumn shedding?) and my scalp eczema has been really bad too (causing more shedding) and thus I've felt quite self-conscious about my hair lately but your comment made me feel better. :flowers:
Also, your hemline looks great, there's absolutely no need of cutting it (unless you want to maintain at your current length)! How much do you cut during your monthly micro-trims?

Ashflower89, Nice to see you in the thread again! I understand what you mean about the hair obsession thing, but I embrace it. ;D How does it feel to be shoulder length again, does it feel somewhat long to you? It doesn't feel like long ago when you only posted pictures from the front. Very neat hemline! =o

two_wheels, Thanks a bundle! To hear somebody say it looks long... means a lot to me. :') :blossom: Even though your hair keeps on getting wavier, progress can clearly be seen (I was just thinking that your hair probably would gain an inch if you straightened it). :D It's amazing, your hair transformation! Maybe I have more waves than I think, too... :hmm: A girl can dream. :cloud9:

November 1st, 2014, 09:06 AM
Thanks Wosie! It actually goes down about 2 stripes (1.5") if I pull it straight. It only does its wavy thing on the day I wash it - the next day it's like picture 3 or 5. But that's ok with me!
I rake through the tiniest bit of oil and gel after washing and then let it drip dry, no touching. It takes ages but I like having waves. You could try that?

I'd leave it alone from now on. Looks like you've been trimming a lot (from seeing random threads around LHC). Your hemline is really nice, so why bother with trimming? Join a challenge, or two. ;)

t_w, I've tried the LOC method, but it makes my hair way less wavy and more limp. :/ Maybe I used too much leave in and aloe vera? It seems the less product I use the wavier it gets, but then again, my hair has a mind of its own and can look straivy after some washes and quite wavy after other ones. x_x;; It's so fickle!

Stray_mind & Jennah, Thank you; you're so sweet. :crush: Your kind words are so encouraging!! Looking forward to seeing your Nov. picture, Stray. :)

Awesome progress everyone, it's odd to think that next month's pic will be the last of 2014 already. o_O

Edit: LLL, You have the hemline I want (the one I used to have when I was hip+ length in my teens), your micro-trimming has really paid off. :blossom:

*comes closer and becomes all hush-hush.. Whispers* I used the flash, because it's evening and it was too hard to get a good quality picture with my photo camera. My hair looks far from healthy still, because i have a huge piece of chemically damaged hair wich i don't want to chop off, because it would be to big of a shock to lose this much lenght. I thank you though :)

Edit: LLL, You have the hemline I want (the one I used to have when I was hip+ length in my teens), your micro-trimming has really paid off. :blossom: Thank you. I still have about 2-3 inches to go before I totally eliminate the remnants of my layers and face frame, but I'm taking it a tiny bit at a time.

I'd agree that it looks like your side lengths have been playing catch up with the rest Fallingdarkness. Gives your hemline a fuller look, and possibly a more solid way to achieve your length! :) Looks good I'd say. :)

Hi SparklyLady82 ! :) I always keep an eye on your progresses as you were one of the first persons to greet me when I arrived on LHC and you happened to have quite the same shape of hair as me. Congratulations for your growth !! Even without the lined shirt, it is very noticeable. :) :)

Here is my progress since end of September. (i.e. one month). Unfortunately I don't have a similar picture for the month before (struggle with image hosting sites and size compatibility). But I am quite happy as I have micro-trimmed about 1 cm in the meantime.

I will just post my shots on the 17 as usual and catch up then. I have been trimming a fair bit so there isnt much growth, i dont remember where i was the last time i posted in here but lets just say that I got to 86/87 cm and cut back to about 84 again because my focuse has been on my hemline, I want it blunt cut and I want some shorter pieces to catch up. I still want to cut more but I might let my hair get to 92 cm (which is bcl for me) before chopping an inch or two again :) Hip feels so short, im bored at being at hip, I want to pass it already or i get annoyed. Happy growing to you all! :)

I have to make an update to my nov. picture. I just spontaniously went to a hairdresser and chopped about 3 cm (1,18 inches) of my hair, because i got sooo fed up of my tangling ends. So here is an official november picture :)

Wow, the sweetest people reside in the LHC, for that I'm sure. <3

fiğrildi, My hair's waves are so fickle, so some days they're 1c and some days they're 2a/2b... :p It's always combed or brushed out in all my monthly pictures, so that it lies a little straighter. I don't think I've ever seen a picture of your hair without hair toys in it; it'd be cool to see what I'd hair type it as. :D Thank you so much for the sweet compliments, especially about my hair colour, as I have periods of time when I've thought about colouring it. :blossom:

Sparklylady82, Your hair is simply dreamy. :cloud9: Love your waves and hair colour!

FallingDarkness, I can surely see progress, it's looking quite long (and definitely longer by the month); not to mention voluminous and thick. :3

Stray_mind, I hope your hair tangles less now? I must be a lil' blind, for I couldn't see the difference between the length before you cut it and after you cut it, until I counted the shirt's stripes. :laugh:

Laura_F, Amazingly sleek and shiny. :bowtome: I wonder if it's possible to take a bad picture of your hair. :o

Crystawni, Thanks a ton, dearie! :flowers: And an extra thanks for writing my name in purple. :crush: I just took a look at your signature picture - WOW!

fiğrildi, My hair's waves are so fickle, so some days they're 1c and some days they're 2a/2b... :p It's always combed or brushed out in all my monthly pictures, so that it lies a little straighter. I don't think I've ever seen a picture of your hair without hair toys in it; it'd be cool to see what I'd hair type it as. :D Thank you so much for the sweet compliments, especially about my hair colour, as I have periods of time when I've thought about colouring it. :blossom

Wish granted! :magic:

My virgin hair reaches just a bit longer than APL, the rest is curly permed from the past (even if I somehow managed to make it look decent/not so curly). It'll be funny when all of my hair has a virgin texture, and find out how do the ends behave (and know my real hair type once and for all) :wink:

So bummed that my hair now is the same length as it was this January so there is no point of doing this challenge this year anymore. At least I worked out what was causing my damage and now I know hot to prevent it. :) I hope there will be a 2015 length challenge.

thank you Stach & Johannah :chocolate: My hem ends feels great and looks nice like its been properly cut but I still have some shorter pieces to about waist length which really bugs me - I dont even know if i should continue with monthly pictures because i know now how much my hair grows each months, its always the same (and when im really lucky i get a bit extra) so now whats the point to continue? Hmmm :(


Heres a quick shot of my hair now, hmmm my hem never stays blunt for very long because my ends flips in every direction but it feels really good :)

This is October last year

This is Octobers 2014 hairpicture taken after being braided a whole day so ends look a little weird

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-ETQeJ4httRc/VFnsh4XIkzI/AAAAAAAAC94/3t3vAjE221g/s1600/unnamed.jpg

Sorry about just putting in a link there, butI can't get that first picture smaller, so it's better as a link. There's definetly a huge difference in both lenght and hemline..hemline so much thinner..but that's ok. I will keep growing for another year and then possibly maintain to get a slightly more even hemline.

Your hair is reaching for waist and it doesn't feel like long ago when you were hovering around BSL! You'll be at your goal length in no time. :D

Thank you muchly, Wosie! It doesn't seem that long ago, you're right! There are a few more years to go until I'm around goal, and knowing the LHC ever-shifting goal marker, it will probably be even more than that! Dare I go to classic like you? Or to knee, even? Dunno! I'm just happy to keep growing, and am looking forward to my hair actually feeling longer!

This thread is evolving very quickly : I can't follow all the new posts and I would like to answer all of them !!! Lol

iYaap : Your color and texture are amazing ! I love your light blond and all its nuances. It's going to be absolutely jawdropping when it grows longer !

Katyusha : Your hair is very beautiful ! I also like to have a clean hemline and I think it's worth "loosing" one month of growth, from time to time, to keep growing thick. And by the way, I love your color also^^

fiğrildi : The rest of perm is not looking bad at all. If you hadn't mentioned it, I would never have guessed it was not natural. Anyway your hair looks so beautiful all the way ! I am a true fan of you stunning warm changing-with-light color !...

Ilax : Wow, your hair is really becoming thudworthy, Ilax ! Its thickness enhances your delicate slender waist beautifully. So feminine and beautiful !

Crystawni : It looks like your hair is litterally rushing down to waist lately !!


(...)
This is what happens after one year of very dedicated hair care and microtrimming:


Jennah : Congrats for your year growth ! :toast: Your patience has payed off : your hair looks very shiny and healthy, with a beautiful bouncing volume and very nice round shape which are perfect to let it grow longer ! :)

Wosie : Your hair looks so healthy and shiny ! But what strikes me most is the color (I'm very sensitive to colors and textures^^) : it's such an unusual amazing shade of ashy dark blond with some mysterious warm chestnut brown in it. I can't explain myself how this is possible : ashy being usually "cold" and chestnut being a warm kind of brown (with a slight gold-and-copper undertone). Maybe I should say "embers dark blond" instead of ashy, to make it sound more like cold-and-warm all together ??? Well I know that it's difficult to really figure out a color on pictures, because the light may change it a lot. But what I see here is just to die for !... :crush:

LauraLongLocks : Ha ha ha Laura, I laughed so much about your "shrinking hair" ! Lol. Lapushka is true : lines on shirts may be deceiving. You can have several centimeters of difference depending on how you wear the shirt, (with or without underwear, buttoned or not, ironed or not, etc.) and also the body position : back more or less straight and shoulders more or less "opened". I noticed also that last time my shirt went out different from the washing because I put some vinegar in the rinse, so my shirt was not as rigid as ordinary and my growth looked like shrinkage too ^^. Your hair looks beautiful and shiny, and you have almost no taper until the very end, which makes it look very healthy too. Wash this grrrr shirt very warm and without fabric softener next time, and you'll have an amazing growth next month^^

FallingDarkness : How this your hair doesn't grow ??? When I look at your last picture, I see a wonderful thick hemline which I don't notice at all on the previous photos. Your hair seems to make it very nice to me, on the contrary ! :)


Hi! We do have very similar hair! I would say we are just about hair twins...the waves, shape and fullness are so similar :))
I see allot of progress in your photo! Congratulations!

Sparklylady82 : Thank you Sparklylady ! :o Actually I suspect that my position when shooting might have emphasized the length a little bit : when tape-measuring it, I don't get such a striking growth. But I don't pay too much attention on centimeters : as I said before to LauraLongLocks, the clothes and body position can be treacherous. So I'm looking forward to comparing several months of growth : it's going to be more significant, I think ! :)


That's an amazing progress for just one month, Mimha! You have a great growth rate! I love the way your hemline looks now :flower:

Thank you fiğrildi ! As I said to SparklyLady here above, I think I have to be a little more modest about it, as my measurments actually don't show much progress this month. I'm not sure whether I measure correctly of shoot properly, lol. So I will have a better idea in the next coming months. Your own growth is with no doubt very noticeable, by the way^^

Tini'sNewHair : Wow, so long and so nicely thick until the very ends !! :bigeyes: It's so beautiful, Tini !...

Laura_F : Oh la la, such shine and such deep dark warm black !! Your hair on the last picture is absolutely perfect !! :thud:
Your hair looks so healthy and well taken care of, Laura_F !... (And I like the place where you take your pictures too : the piece of cloth on the wall is very nice^^)

Stray_mind, Was it henna you used? For some reason I thought henna made the hair less tangly, but I guess it varies from person to person and henna to henna. :hmm:

fiğrildi, You are definitely a 2a until APL, no doubt about it! Both your waves and hair colour kinda reminds me of my own, yours is lighter though and makes me think "caramel". :D It's safe to say that I have a role model now!

Crystawni, Indeed, my first LHC length goal was waist, then hip, now classic. :o But what I really want is long hair before it gets too annoying (and I have no idea when that'll happen) with a blunt, non-see through hemline. I mean, for all I know that can happen at waist already! It'll be very fun and interesting to see how we feel about our hair once we've passed waist by a good few inches. :) Do you think you'll take part of the 2015 monthly length project?

Mimha, Wow, thank you! :flowers: Probably the nicest description I've ever heard about my hair. :'3 I never knew I had ashy hair; always when I compared my hair to hair colour packages in stores I got the closest to "golden brown" or "natural brown". But at the same time I never felt really truly golden either. It's indeed a mix of both; I have no idea how that's possible, though. :laugh: When I asked DBF a while back (I needed a more objective view on this mystery) he said I'm ~80% golden brown and 20% ashy brown.
I have to say again that your hair is beautiful, reminding me of my younger sister's hair before she started straightening it (and colouring it black). Your hair's thickness is nothing to sneeze at either. :bigeyes: Impressive, to say the least. Looking forward to seeing your hair grow, it's a glorious mane. :D

Yes, i was hennaing my hair since the summer of 2013 (now i don't anymore) , but i have henna over chemically dyed hair all the way down from my ears, so that part still tangles quite a lot. Also i had my hair straigtened last April in the salon, sillly me for letting the hairdresser do it. After that my ends didn't behave anymore, but i still waited for November to trim it off. Now my hair is much easier to comb out. :)

Hey everyone <3 The progress this month is lovely, and really inspiring. So many awesome manes! I've given up measuring any other way than by monthly photo and body part, so here goes...

First off, wet length shot, because it is the least ambiguous with my wurly hair:
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y266/Keyake/IMG_20140807_202008-1_zpse240644d.jpg

Speaking of wurly, my wave pattern during this month's shot was really relaxed, maybe because it was still damp but also because my hair likes to do whatever it wants on any given day. So it looks like it grew much longer than it probably did, as far as I could tell from root measuring I grow a shade over a cm to 1.5 cm on average.

http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y266/Keyake/hair7-10-14_zps55613c0f.jpg

Annnd side shot... Happy because I finally have to make this one longer, and will probably stop doing it once my side-layers are more grown out!

Thanks everyone! I still think it's more optical illusion than growth (it's nearly straight in that last picture, silly hair - the curls are back now on day 2 of course but utterly defying gravity) because I'd been growing out the red and measuring the roots, but I'm still hoping that it continues to grow at this rate :cheese: Then maybe I will be a longhair sooner than not!

I really wish it was like that, but I have to say no it doesn't ;) There are months when it hit lot's of inches and there are ones when it hardly reach 1/2 inch, so you can guess in matter of year it get closer to "most of human results" for now,by 11 months they have grow from bra strap(high one) little under tailbone so somewhere around 1,5"/ month in year count.According to that before all the magic mixtures they was growing sooo slow i am still happy from results and hope for more next year(mostly like half of this year i was getting bad results let's see next one)

I'm thinking I'll take quarterly photos of my hair next year. Monthly was so often that I could not tell for sure if there was any growth at all between months. I think I'll take a quarterly length photo of my hair freshly washed and worn down, a photo of my bangs, and a photo of my braid. I want to watch the taper disappear in my braid as I microtrim. This has been a lot of fun for me this year though. Only one more photo to finish the year out.

Thats what I decided to do. When I was still growing from pixie to chin, monthly shots were very motivating. But now Im between shoulder and armpit and it just seems pointless. So I started taking them every 3 months. Definitely easier to see growth that way!

Thank you so much Hanne, I think the thin hemline has to do with me trying water only around then,my hair did not really like it.I tried for quite a few months and ended up with half a ton of split ends from the BBB So I have been washing with no cones since then. , and oiling quite a bit too!

Hey guys! here is my belated growth picture from 4 days ago (Nov 20). There has been some growth hehe. I was taking a hair supplement but then I stopped as I was breaking out. I'm not too sure if the reason why I was breaking out were the antibiotics I was taking or if maybe there might have been a completely different reason. The acne is going away now so I might take those supplements again :) I also decided to micro trim in 2015 to even out my hemline... maybe!

You're hair is really looking long these days Laura :) Have you done something to the colour, or is that just the winter light? It's looking really dark, in a nice way.

I am very, very late. Sorry. *looks sheepish* I have to be honest, this is starting to feeling like a real ***. I've missed a month and am late for the following month too! I think next year I will take bi-monthly or quarterly pics.

On the plus side I can actually see some progress this time! :D What do you think?

I think I am ready to call 38 inches stretched now. It's a good inch past tailbone wet now and it's creeping up on classic. I can see now, I am going to be well past classic stretched before it looks TBL dry and wavy :/

Un-stretched:

No, I haven't done anything with the color. It's just that it is an overcast day with no sunlight and so my hair appears darker. I like the dark color, too. That's actually closer to what I think it looks like naturally, at the scalp. In the last year I added some henna to the length and that has reddened my color a bit, but at the scalp it is still natural.

Join us on the quarterly http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/showthread.php?t=127960 length and braid taper photo project next year.

Yes, your hair seems to reach farther in the last photo. It's hard to say though because curl patterns and FTEs can be so deceiving.

Thank you stachelbeere. I didn't really micro trim. I just chopped off what was needed. As mentioned many times before I'm still dealing with damage because I went from black to my natural hair colour. But I think I cut most of the damage this year. Hopefully it will stop breaking now so I can get some length in 2015. But I think I'll have to at least micro trim so I can get rid of those thinning ends on my left. It's a result from a bad hairdresser :( She did that in April. Since than I'm trimming my own hair.

You gained a lot of length this year! And I love your hemline in sigpic ;)

Here's my December photo (half an hour too early here). Looks like a lot of growth but my November photo was hard to line up with the others and I think it might be a little wrongsized, but anyway I'm really happy! I do have lots of splits and I will trim after New Year's.

Do you guys have any hair-related New Year's resolutions?

Mine will definitely be these:
- Wear hair up in protective styles (no ponies when unnecessary). I need to get/make some new hair sticks for this.
- Avoid tangles and unnecessary damage.
- NO dye or bleach!! I'm happy with my colour now and my virgin hair is quite happy.
- Trim when I need to. Dont let the hair get too damaged, better trim more and grow slower in that case.

I hope to reach BSL sometime during the spring.

At the same time i'm looking really forward to get rid of the layers, so i'm probably just going to maintain next year, even though i really want to gain length :P Oh, the dilemma a lot of people here are facing, i guess!

So great to have followed everyone on here, and see all the great progresses!

arihS, We seem to have had a similar journey this year, hair-length wise (your hair is a lil' longer than mine though, by an inch or so). It's looking great and healthy (I also have a few inches worth of layers to get rid of in the next year, by the way ;p).

askan, Your hair grows so quickly and it's only getting more beautiful by each month! You'll reach BSL way faster than we originally thought. :cheer:

Katyusha, Your hair has also grown a lot, even with some substantial trimming (around April, where it looks as if you took off quite a bit of your length); I can't believe how quickly your hair grew between August and October. :thud:

MsPharaohMoan, You started out with a few centimetres to BSL and now you're almost at hip?! :D

We've all had a great hair growing year! Let's celebrate. :toast::applause:hifive::xmas:

(...) In my picture you can only spot growth by looking at my elbows. But it is there I think!

http://i1051.photobucket.com/albums/s428/Yaapy/groei-2.jpeg

Hi iYapp ! Congrats for your growth : when you compare the position of your hemline with the sleeves of your shirt, you can definitely see a nice growth ! I am amazed how much your hair remains the same from one picture to another : same shape, same fullness, and same color !! Mine seems to be changing all the time : one day shiny, one day not, one day wavy, one day curly, one day almost flat, looool


Mimha, Your hair is so pretty, I have to admit that I'm a little envious. I love your defined waves. And to me it looks as if your growth is faster than average, too! I also really like your dark grey and white striped shirt, it looks so sailor-like (I need to get me one or two of those; especially now that I've bought an anchor flexi-8!).

Thank you, Wosie ! I do enjoy my waves, which are getting more and more with the years, it seems^^ :flower: I looked around to find your pictures but did not see any this month. Have you not posted ?? Concerning the shirt, I like it so much that I bought another one : so I have to be very careful when I take the pictures because they are not exactly lined the same^^


My last picture this year. I didn't gain much length but I think my hair looks better than before. I hope I'll gain more length in 2015


Katyusha, it seems to me that you gained quite a lot, on the contrary : just look the evolution since August : it just jumped down !


Mimha, your wave pattern is so pretty!

Thanky you Scarlet_Celt !^^ :)


Here's my December photo (half an hour too early here). Looks like a lot of growth but my November photo was hard to line up with the others and I think it might be a little wrongsized, but anyway I'm really happy! I do have lots of splits and I will trim after New Year's. (...)


Just look at the design on your shirt, ashkan : it's almost completely covered by hair !!! If this is not an amazing growth... I eat my lined shirt !!


Your wave pattern is so nice and your hemline is great too!!!!

Thanks you yahirwa, you make me blush !... Lol, my waves seem to be pretty much appreciated around here, :cool: ha ha ha !


(...)Mimha, I LOVE your waves, and your hair color, and your thickness. Congrats on your good growth last month :)
I'm posting my final round of photos tomorrow

Thank you FallingDarkness, it's sweet of you :o ... I will be happy to see your pictures too ! :)

Thanks Mimha :) haha, i had to laugh about your comment, it would be nice if hair could jump that way ;) I think it seems thicker because my layers got longer too, and also I've been growing out bangs which now show a bit as well. I love your hair by the way, the wave pattern, thickness and the blunt hemline!

FallingDarkness: I checked and I seem to consistently grow .5 inches a month, cause it's roughly six inches from my start length to my current length. I just have a short back so it appears impressive xD

All the way back to January until now, December. I remember when I took my first picture, I was visiting my family and had air dried my hair after a hair wash. My hair looked very dry and frizzy while I was looking at myself in the mirror, but surprisingly it looked quite neat in the picture. ^o^

In the newest picture I'm detecting see-through ends, and as I can't take see-through ends on myself (at least now when I'm at this 'short' length), I will have to get rid of them around the winter solstice. Otherwise my hair looks very straight! ...Which was mostly nice to me, as I finally could take a good look at how my hemline actually looks like. The waves sometimes make it look wonky otherwise, but I'm pleased to see it looks fine.

Thanks for all the fun I've had while reading and browsing through this thread, and here's to another year of growth spurts and new milestones! :cheer::toast::xmas:

Congrats to those leaving the thread after a year of (mostly) growth! :cheer: I hope next year brings you health, strength, shine and MOAR length!


Crystawni, Indeed, my first LHC length goal was waist, then hip, now classic. :o But what I really want is long hair before it gets too annoying (and I have no idea when that'll happen) with a blunt, non-see through hemline. I mean, for all I know that can happen at waist already! It'll be very fun and interesting to see how we feel about our hair once we've passed waist by a good few inches. :) Do you think you'll take part of the 2015 monthly length project?

I'm still thinking about it. Mayhaps the quarterly project that LLL posted? I like seeing the small amount of progress, and it stops me from wanting to trim, but I think doing it monthly has been a bit fiddly, especially with moving house (we're constantly on the move now until we choose to settle again) and other things thrown in for good measure. Your growth and thickness for this year has been beautiful to watch, btw!

I have the end of December to go as my pics are at the end of the month, so here's my penultimate pic for this year. :) 1cm of growth for the month of November, giving me a current length of 72cm (28.3"), with around 5cm to go until waist. *Start pic is the end of April when I joined.

Thank you, FallingDarkness and Johannah! :flowers: It's at that stage where it's starting to look long, but doesn't feel it (especially as it's in the midback abyss where the ends aren't touching anything).

Hi arihS ! Thanks for your nice comment ! I'm working hard to keep my hemline as dense as possible, because my main problem is quick taper. I know I'll have to micro-trim regularly to keep it nice as long as possible^^

Hello Wosie :) I am always SO FOUND of your hair color !! It's such a beautiful amazing and rare nuance of dark ashy blonette with a subtle touch of warm brown, which makes it cold and warm together. (I might have mentioned it somewhere else, sorry for repeating^^) I absolutely love it !

Concerning your "see-through" ends, well... :eye: ... seems more like a great neat blunt hemline to me !!

Aw shucks, you guys are the sweetest; thanks a million (fiğrildi, FallingDarkness, arihS, Crystawni, Mimha)! I feel like blushing every time I read through your compliments, I even have a hard time answering to them as I feel so shy just by reading 'em. :p

fiğrildi, I love that description of my hair!! Caramel hazelnut. :cloud9: Indeed, my hair has changed a lot since January, I had tons of layers then, and now they're getting effectually minimized. :D There are layers left, they're just hidden and thinned out (by wear and tear), but like you said, they're barely seen anymore which I'm quite happy about! I've had lots of troubles with them, and knowing that there's not long left until they're completely gone is a very happy thought!

Crystawni, I'm sure I'll still take pictures of my length every month, but I mightn't post every single picture in the forums... :hmm: I understand you having a tougher time to squeeze in time for length pictures (I on the other hand have all the time in the world, so it's a welcome change and a fun day of the month); I hope the constant moving isn't tiring you out, it sounds incredibly stressful to me. ´:S
Your hair is one of the most interesting and unique ones on the whole LHC (and that's saying something)! Like a golden waterfall with some frost around it. :) Is your whole under layer silver now? It looks that way. :crush: Also, your hemline is beautiful! I'm amazed you haven't cut it for so long, and it has grown so much, and it still looks so very nice and tidy. :bigeyes:

Mimha, :oops: You really have a way with kind words! Like I said, I never thought of my hair as ashy before, but your posts've started me to question my 'belief'. :laugh: It was always hard for me to pinpoint my hair colour; I still don't know how to define it/what to call it. :confused: I used to not like my hair colour at all, but all the kind comments here have started to pay off, I think it's totally fine now. :'D

---

I have a confession to make, I cut off 1-2 centimetres off my ends before I fell asleep on the AM of December 2nd... I don't feel bad about it at all, I just thought it'd be smart to cut it when my hair was as straight as possible. It'll be interesting to see how my hemline looks like on January 1st. ^_^

After not making any visible progress last month, I appear to have made quite a lot this month! I'm thinking it's because I braided it today whereas last month I had just let it dry wavy. Stupid shrinkage. But I'll take the long hair! :)

Okay, you two, and TW (quoted next) have made me blush from my head to my toes! :o Thank you! It's so lovely to think au-natural (which includes the signs of aging) can be admired! :flowers:

Wosie, I snipped my hair over a few days in April from BSL to APL until I was happy with the hemline (which I baby with coconut oil before washing, and Argan oil afterwards). My last cut was actually with my hair straightened so I could line up all the ends, with a followup snip of strays in the shower with it soaking wet (done by hubster who has a great eye for lining things up as he's a carpenter). A hairdresser had hacked it a while back with the thinning blade, so I had a fair bit of uneven wispiness. Some is still there and shows on the sides especially, but I'm okay with that. My underlayer still has a fair amount of tawny stuff hanging on, but the whites outsparkle them and reflect the light. I haven't looked properly for a while, but I know there are solid stripes of white (the one on the right shows through the layers in my pics--the stripe is almost on the top, too).

As for moving, it's kinda exciting--only hubs, me and the animals as we're empty-nesters--and not so stressful as the bulk of our gear is in storage. We're just cabin and house hopping while we decide on which direction we're going (hubs has a few job opportunities that are spread all over). We're seasoned movers, anyway, having only settled in a house we built for 4 years. This time, we're looking at our own roof over our head again, in the shape of a fifth wheeler caravan (or similar). :p

I enjoyed this thread, seeing everyone's progress, but monthly is too often for me for pics, my waves are too unpredictable to show a lot of progress in 1 month and life gets in the way and I don't take them. I'll be heading over to the quarterly pic thread, hopefully I'll be able to keep up with that one.

But like you there seemed like many weeks that it wasn't growing much at all, obviously my perception was skewed but I understand exactly what you mean when by struggling to see your own growth. That last pic does look like I could be close to waist, but it has to be a camera angle, because I have nearly a years worth of growth to go.......

Is your hair really only 22 inches long?
Because mine is almost 29, and we look like we have the same length lol.

I used to be 5' 1.5", I think I've shrunk with age. I had DH help me measure because I got 24" and thought that didn't seem long enough either, but that was the same thing he got when he stretched out my hair. I just had DH check the measurement of how far down is WL, he said my thumb was at 28". Which means, Holy Crap, I only have 4" to go.:bigeyes:

LOL, apparently I am very short through the back and waist, the only time in my life this has ever been a plus.

How are you measuring your hair? The LHC method is to run a tape from your hairline at your forehead, over the top of your head, and down the back to the end. I'm measuring out in the low twenties, and I've got way shorter hair than yours.

That's how I measure as well.*shrugs it may just be a case of my body markers being a little more compact than the average person. If I can manage it I will take a pic with the tape measure to satisfy the mystery. :)

Ok it wasn't as difficult as I feared to get a pic that you could read the tape measure. Hair is wonky and not very combed, freshly unbunned but you get the idea. Thumb is at waist, tape is at the top of hairline.

Can't argue with photographic evidence.

I'm somewhere between shoulder and APL, and I'm measuring less than that. Though I don't have a cloth tape to measure with, so I don't really know where I am measure-wise.

Sterlyn, you're probably right. Proportionally, I have short legs (not only just because I'm short LOL), so not only do I look even tinier than I am, but my hair looks shorter too :(

Giving myself a goal/reward helped a lot, but it was mostly the fact that it's always in a bun or braid that kept me from going insane. If I was a frequent wearer-downer, I don't think I would have lasted nearly as long.

These pictures are from last week and today respectively; with my longest length touching waist. In October, I had my hair lightened to its natural dark brown and trimmed. I was hoping to make it to waist by Christmas, and I'm pleased to say that I made it. I'm excited to see where my hair will be a year from now.

Good luck growing, everyone!

Curse you, shrinkage! But I'm so happy the curls are back.

http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y266/Keyake/hairside7-10-14_zps6fe5a81c.jpg
This also looks shorter back-length wise but it's just beyond my shoulder. It would be lovely to think that it was getting thicker again (right after I joined LHC I had a huge, many months long shed) but it might just be volume from my new shampoo-applying-technique.

http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y266/Keyake/IMG_20140807_202008-1_zps287e31c5.jpg
At long last, proof of growth this month! Average, it looks like maybe .5 inches, but it's nice to see the progression from earlier this year.

Thanks you guys for being supportive and I hope to see you on next year's thread. I have two years ish until I hit waist so I'm going to keep doing monthlies in that time. ^^

Im growing my hair sideways, working my towards a more full hemline, thought I post here even though I'm not getting any length.
In the end I had to face the fact that my ends needed more then just a microtrim each month and Im glad I took the plunge.
My hemline was much in a deep V at the start of this year after a year of moving around a lot and me not having it in me to care for it properly.

I first cut back to classic from mid thigh, but it really wasnt enough, so I started to micro trim, but I felt I needed to find a way to go from a V-cut to more of U-cut on my way to a more straight hemline and I thought I must dare to try this trimming method, hoping that it would help and it really did just that I feel.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L9Erf49Eyxc

Hopefully trimming my hair like this will end me up at classic again in about 6 month, with a so much fuller hemline.

This is how my hair looked at the start of this year:

Thank you Stray-Mind ! :)

I am indeed quite happy with my growth : when I pull it, it's actually already reaching my bra strap^^, which is really encouraging !

Despite my happiness concerning the growth rate, I feel more preoccupied by the hair loss : I am undergoing a terrible shedding since a month or two (about 100 hairs a day, and between 250 to 350 when washing :( :( ) so I don't know what to do in 2015. Have a big chop to start the new year ? Regularly micro-trim ? Let it be and see ?...

I wish I could exercise some braiding styles and updos, but as soon as I play with my hair, I shed tons of it and prefer to avoid unnecessary handling. I just put it up in a protective updo which does not pull it too much and hope it will be better in the next coming months.

Anyway, thanks to you all for your nice team spirit and encouragement, and lets continue in the 2015 monthly thread ! :toast: :)

Final photo for this thread! I think I'll do what a few others have said for next year, and take monthly pictures but upload them quarterly rather than every time. I'll also do the plait photos, as I like the idea of being able to see taper changes.

A year of hair:

My tape measure tells me that my hair was 40 inches in January, and is now 45 inches - so a solid 5 inches of growth, including two mini trims. If I manage the same in 2015 I'll be beyond fingertip and only a couple of inches from knee by this time next year!

November 7 I cut 20 cm because the tips were too empty. This caused a plenty fall than 2 years ago.

These were in November before cutting

I took my January shot a little early, and I know it wont be 2014 anymore, but I went ahead and added it to the length shot chart I started when I started growing out my pixie. There are a few months missing but oh well, yay for progress!

I joined this thread a bit late, showing progress from when I last trimmed in April at APL+. I've gained 5 inches since then, going from 61cm (24") to 74cm (29") with about an inch to go until waist after 2cm of growth in December. :)

I took my last picture in June because I decided to neglect my growth. Notice I've been trimming A LOT through these months because my ends were really thin. Here's the progress until June:

Great progress for 6 months, Johannah especially if you trimmed much! Your ends look great in the June picture.

So I took my last picture today. I trimmed between the November and December picture so it's a little shorter now. I ended up with some weird blunt layers... Haha I should not try and do layers on my own hair again.

The green lines are starting point and my current length, and the last line is where I could be in a year if I keep up the same growth rate and don't do anything stupid! =)

Hope to see you all in the 2015 thread - I'm going to take my first picture tomorrow, I will change to another shirt. It's been great watching everyones progress!

Crystawni, your progress along the year is huge!! We're about the same length to go until we reach waist :cheer:

Johannah, your hemline looks much fuller and very healthy, that's a huge difference from the January picture! and you got a lot of growth as well, in spite of the frecuent trims you got :)

askan, your hair colour is amazing, and your hair slowly covering the logo on your shirt is so fun to watch ;)
Your hair is looking great and seems to grow quite fast, I can't wait to see your progress during next year!

I took my last picture in June because I decided to neglect my growth. Notice I've been trimming A LOT through these months because my ends were really thin. (...)

Johannah, what a pleasure to admire your shiny blondness making its way down ! :) :) (I particularly love the June and April pics). Your ends really look nice and you can go on growing in confidence !




So I took my last picture today. I trimmed between the November and December picture so it's a little shorter now. I ended up with some weird blunt layers... Haha I should not try and do layers on my own hair again.


askan, your hair color is so changing, depending on the light !! Congrats for your growth too : considering the late trims, it's really stunning !

Ok here's my growth over the past year. Excuse quality of second photo, I've just taken it quickly due to the date and I've had an afternoon nap!!! The big gap at the bottom of my hair doesn't show in real life. The white vest shows where bsl is. Once I get there I've got a lot of trimming to do to get rid of thin shed ends. So for me 2015 is about reaching a solid bsl with much thicker ends, and as a bonus mbl would be nice :)

diddiedaisy, you look so close to BSL now! It seems it's just about an inch to go... growing from shoulder to almost BSL in just one year is an amazing progress, congrats!

Here's my progress since December 2013 to December 2014. It's a chaotic disaster since I haven't been constant taking pictures, and I kept changing backgrounds and clothing... also, my hair has not gained length since I've been trimming constantly to get rid of perm damage. My progress is mainly the improvement of the condition of my hair, and a fuller hemline. I will keep trimming off perm in 2015, but I hope to reach hip sometime before next december. Hopefully I'll have got rid of the last inches of perm by then :wink:
