Hey everybody, it's good to be back! (I've had no internet at home for over a month!)

Well I can't believe it's already been over a year since I joined LHC!
I went from just about to start brushing waist to about 2-3" from BCL this year.
I think the most important things I changed after joining were: Conditioner only washing, ditching my brush in favor of a wide tooth comb, and the near-constant wearing of protective updos.
Unfortunately, my ends have suffered some thinning because of a couple of massive stress-sheds and old chemical dye damage. My healthy hair starts at about BSL in the newest shot, and I plan on maintaining (or growing very slowly) for the next two years to grow all the damage out. I'm in it for the long haul!

And now the pictures!
January '13, my first ever length shot (with old braidwaves and dry ends).

August '13, combed out straight (bottom of picture is about TBL)

A few days ago, combed out straight for extra length, hand at BCL. I'm also wearing the same jeans as the first picture, but they sit much higher up on my hips now due to shape changes. And looking at it now, I think my back was slightly arched, so I'd say it looks about an inch longer than it is.

And a gratuitous picture with finger-combed bunwaves, shirt ends at BCL.

My DH saw the screen from across the room where he's sorting laundry. "Pretty awesome hair!" he says. I can't help but agree.

Wow, thank you all so much for your kind words! :crush:

I couldn't have grown such (comparatively) nice hair so quickly without all of the wisdom and support on this site, and I can't wait to share each anniversary and milestone with you all!:blossom:

Wow, that's some impressive growth. When I first joined the LHC, I had so much old damage to trim off that my progress was considerably slower than yours.

Dream hair! Is it your natural colour or with what you dye? (sorry if you already wrote it somewhere, can't see it :S)

My goodness, you guys are all just so nice! Here I was feeling like I hadn't grown much and didn't have a lot of good hair, and now I feel like a million hair sticks! :)

Thank you! I'm naturally blonette (dark dark blonde/light light brown) and I use henna.
