View Full Version : Fourth LHC anniversary

June 30th, 2014, 05:34 AM
It completely slipped my mind! I've been ignoring my hair a lot more this year, to the point where I realised I actually haven't cut it in six months now. I's been silently growing on, but definitely slower than it used to.

So, yeah. I was at BSL (http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/k626/growingmyhair/DSCN8789.jpg) four years ago when I joined, and here is last year's anniversary shot vs today's hair, freshly washed and not fully dry:

I really am due for a trim, but leaving it be is so comfortable. And cheap!

Edit because I forgot that I've usually done a braid shot, too:

It looks beautiful! I know what you mean about just leaving it alone being so much easier. Happy LHC anniversary! :flower:

Your hair looks love! This is such an inspiration! :blossom:

It's really lovely, and the ends are in amazing shape! Doesn't look in need of a trim (and I feel you on the can't be bothered thing), but only you know for sure. Congratulations :D

I think it looks beautiful! Your hemline looks healthy so there's no need to rush a trim.

I'd love to see a pic of your hair when you joined compared to now, if you have one :)

Your hair is lovely and happy fourth anniversary.

June 30th, 2014, 07:27 AM
Your hair looks great and there looks to be so little taper. I believe you could grow to great lengths if you wish to do so. Happy anniversary! :) :cake:

Your hair is stunning and incredibly inspirational! It is at almost my exact goal length! I too would agree that there is really no need to trim if you don't want to. Your hemline looks quite nice in my opinion. Happy fourth anniversary!

nice growth! I have the adopted "put it up and forget about it" philosophy myself and grew 5 inches last year (after 3 trims).

June 30th, 2014, 11:27 AM
Your hair looks so beautiful! I'm amazed by how little taper you have. Gorgeous!

You hair is soooooo beautiful. It's really grown a lot, and it looks extremely healthy. Congratulations on having such an amazing mane! :P

Such beautiful straight hair!

Thanks, guys!

Nesoi, sure - it's linked in the first post, but here it is. :) This was in July 2010:


I think my taper is probably quite average, really. *g* It's more than it used to be - my braid used to be pretty much the same thickness all the way down, which it really isn't anymore. But it's not too bad, either:


(I shall edit my braid into the OP!)

Happy anniversary! :cake: Your hair looks great. You´ve gotten a lot of growth since I saw it last time.

Oh, that is just gorgeous hair! Well done! Proof that benign neglect works!

June 30th, 2014, 05:51 PM
Very pretty, and is it my imagination or does it actually look thicker than in last year's picture?

June 30th, 2014, 06:00 PM
Your hair is gorgeous!

June 30th, 2014, 06:22 PM
Beautiful! And happy anniversary! I'm officially starting my long hair journey. I think I'm about at BSL now. Very encouraging.

June 30th, 2014, 06:45 PM
Wow! That's just gorgeous hair! :D Congratulations!

June 30th, 2014, 07:07 PM
Wow, very nice! Your length and color is very pretty. Congtrats :)

June 30th, 2014, 07:10 PM
Congrats on your anniversary! :toast: your hair looks beautiful! :D

Excellent progress! I'd say you met your TB goal too.

Thanks, everyone! :blossom:

I kind of does a little, yeah, but I think that's just due to it not being fully dry yet. :) It always looks a little plumper for a couple of hours there!

woodswanderer, I think so, too! I basically meant to start maintaining a few months ago, but then I forgot to get it trimmed and I guessed it reached tailbone thanks to that.

Oh wow! You are my inspiration!!! I was just having a low momment because its winter here Im hardly getting any growth and then looking back at when my hair was BSL I couldnt help but think, geesh can i really get to classic or at least passed hip with my hair thickness but then looking at your hair, I believe that i can. Your hair looks so beautiful and very much my thickness I think. Congratulations!!!! Amazing stunning mane!
