View Full Version : Can I call this?

September 20th, 2014, 07:51 AM
Hi all, just wondering if I call my first apl. I say first as I won't call properly until I reach wavy. This is as straight as I can get it without an iron.

Please don't judge my hair, I'm recovering from a major shed and also have layers. Hence not having a full head of hair at the bottom. I think the thickness is travelling down though as I was see through from shoulder at one point.

Have you done the towel test? That should tell you for sure. But by the looks of it, I think yes you can call it! :)

Thanks. I feel a bit like a cheat as I get quite a good shrinkage going on. Up to 3 inches depending on my hairs mood lol. Hopefully by christmas I'll look apl, that's when I'll call again and not feel like I'm cheating.

I feel so stupid but what does apl stand for?

Hi sarathar and welcome to TLHC :) Apl is an abbreviation for arm pit length. Check out this link http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/showthread.php?t=54874 for more useful information about abbreviations and TLHC terms :)
