View Full Version : One Year Anniversary!! (Pics)

I felt like this day would never ever get here. But at the same time, I can't believe that it has been a whole year already!

I know I have said this before, but in case some have missed it, I went to the salon September 24th 2007 to donate 10 inches to locks of love. My hair was just touching the back of my pants when I went in. When I came out, my hair was chin-ish length. :( Not at all what I was wanting.

This last year at LCH I haven't really done anything new with my hair. I did try the shampoo bars and the CO washes but my hair really just didn't care for either of them. And then I figured that my hair always seemed to do well before, so why change things? I just use cheep Suave shampoo and a leave in conditioner with cones, because it seems to make my hair happy. :)

I was a bit disappointed when I saw the before and after pictures because I really thought that I had gotten more length than that. I did gain a nice amount of growth this last year going from 16 inches to 24 inches. So I guess that I am happy with that. I was just hoping that it would be more obvious in pictures.

Anyway here are the pictures. I have never been to good at posting pictures so please bear with me. :)

I know that my hair looks a bit crooked. But I am still struggling with the salon phobia thing and am too chicken to go in to have it fixed.

Thank you all for a great first year at LHC!! :)

Happy Growing Everyone!

Congrats! That is a lot of growth. I think the reason the growth doesn't look as dramatic to you is because your hair is so thick - which is actually a good thing if you ask me.

It looks very thick and healthy. Congratulations on one year!

8 Inches is a very good rate of growth.
Have you tried the faye method for trimming your own hair.

Congratulations on your one year anniversary at the LHC, HeatherMae, and here's to many more years!:toast:

I cannot get over how much your hair has grown in the past year, and 8 inches per year is well above the average 6 inches/year. Also, your ends are so thick and even, and I think you should be able to grow it a lot longer if you wish to do so. Thank you for sharing.

8inches/year is a very good rate of return on your new investment. ;)

Congratulations, and happy anniversary! :flowers:

Wow, how generous of you to donate your hair! I've always wanted to do that. Your hair has an amazing growth rate! It looks so thick... I'm jealous! :) Congrats!

your hair looks lighter in the second picture! I like both colors, and I think that your hair will look gorgeous even longer especially since it appears so thick.

Congratulations! You gained a lot of length, and it looks very thick and healthy.

Thank you all so much for all of your kind words. :) I am anxious for my next anniversary, because I think surely by then my hair will look long. So, just 1 more year to go! LOL!
