So I realized I have been growing my hair for a bit over three years now. I started sometime toward the end on 2010, though not sure exactly when. I did trim it a lot when i was growing it out to even it up etc since I started with a typical short guy cut.

Here's a pic of it in the mop stage a little ways in. Almost didn't make it as I couldn't take my hair constantly in my face.

And here is a pic of my ponytail now. Finally I feel like I have long hair, even though its not nearly as long as most of yours.

Any way just wanted to say thanks to everyone, as the last few months I have learned a ton on this site about how to improve taking care of my hair and it has really helped and I am super pleased with my hair.

Omgosh that is a thick ponytail! What a gorgeous, thick head of hair you have! Please don't let anyone talk you into any Layers "to remove some weight" since most of us would kill to have that thickness lol! Your hair looks amazing! Congrats on a great job these past three years!

I hate to distract from this post with my own silly question, but do you have to be a member with 25+ posts to see the pictures? I think I'm still considered a newbie (thus can't edit my profile LOL) and can't see the photos... I wanna see how wonderfully thick the pony is, too! I guess I'll have to be more active on LHC? LOL.

Thanks everyone for the compliments. Always feels good to hear good things.:) And I must say that while my hair is very thick the ponytail in the pic is perhaps a tad on the looser side.

Your hair is so thick! Makes my hair look pathetic in comparison.

Do you do anything in particular to your hair or are you just blessed with good genes?

I want hair that thick but a foot or two longer and braided! Usually I say that nice hair is wasted on men, but you're going to actually enjoy yours, so thank you. :)

Gorgeous hair!!! :thud: Nice and thick. Takes me back to my rocker days in the late 80's when all the guys had long hair. :rockerdud

May I ask what is your routine? My older son needs some tips.

Thanks for all the compliments everyone! Here is a pic of my hair down (well mostly down). I pretty much never have it completely loose. I just oiled yesterday of it is still pretty shiny and will probably get poofier as the week goes on. Its pretty poofy generally speaking.

Also with regards to me doing anything special, I think mostly I got lucky in the gene department. Since I joined here a few months back i started oiling about once a week or so and braiding at night and that has really helped I think. I comb every morning and night. also I don't wash super often, maybe once a week or so otherwise my hair gets real big.

Wow, I doubt I've ever seen a thicker ponytail. I don't think I'd be able to handle that on a daily basis, that would be like me having 6 times more hair than I already have. Your hair looks awesome though!

Flournoy
January 8th, 2014, 09:02 PM
Whats your goal length?

Not really sure about the goal length. Initially I just wanted it long enough to tie back, but since then i have kept growing. I have thought about waist or maybe just mid back. I guess it will depend on how it is taking care of it and wearing it how I like etc. At present I am really enjoying it, so that is good.
