View Full Version : LHC Anniversary - 10 years

January 23rd, 2015, 03:22 PM
oin date January 9, 2005 , A bit late but close enough to the date. Holy crap it's been 10 years on here.

Found my 4 years anniversary thread so I'll just add to it as I haven't taken many pictures since then. Hair hasn't changed length all that much in all this time because I've been through several major sheds and am still working on thickening the ends after them. Also between the first picture and the last, my hair grew in from the sheds coarse and wavier. So in the past 10 years I went from 2a/ M/C to 2b/C

Length Progress.
February 2005, soon after I first joined. Hip length.

February 2006.
Note the thickness difference. This was due to the major shed I had. An inch worth of thickness lost. Especially the ends suffered as the longest hairs shed out.
Longest hairs at tailbone.

June/ July 2007, longest hairs at classic

December 2008, No growth since mid summer. Stalled. :mad: It didn't grow at all for a year or so.

It started growing after that year but I had several more sheds after that.
Longest my hair got. This was about 2011. After that I trimmed it back to classic because the ends were thin and I wanted to thicken them.

Summer 2013

January 2015


It's finally feeling like it's getting thicker further down the length.

Wow very pretty! (: happy ten years!!

January 23rd, 2015, 03:28 PM
Your hair is gorgeous! Ethereal, somehow. It must have been beyond frustrating to have all those sheds though. Happy 10th anniversary!

January 23rd, 2015, 03:28 PM
it looks like the thickness is traveling down :)

I have that same issue.

January 23rd, 2015, 03:32 PM
Gorgeous locks!

January 23rd, 2015, 03:32 PM
It certainly does look thicker! Congratulations on your LHC anniversary!! :cake:

Thank you everyone!

Your hair is gorgeous! Ethereal, somehow. It must have been beyond frustrating to have all those sheds though. Happy 10th anniversary!
Thank you! It really was frustrating as it would get a bit thicker and then I'd lose all of that in a matter of a month or two.

it looks like the thickness is traveling down :)

I have that same issue.
I hope it improves for you as well. :)

Wow! What beautiful hair. I can see how over the years your hair just kept getting healthier and shinier. I'm sorry you have had to deal with big sheds, but your hair is thickening up nicely.

Yes, its travelling down.
It was interesting to see the progression.
It's beautiful hair and I'm sorry you had sheds. did you ever find a cause, or did they just happen?
Praying that you will never have any sheds anymore.

January 23rd, 2015, 08:53 PM

January 23rd, 2015, 08:55 PM
Such beautiful hair! :applause Truly ethereal and princess-like! :D

And congratulations on overcoming those sheds! :flowers: That's very inspiring to all of us, that regardless of the toughest moments, we can still grow long and beautiful hair! Hooray! :cheer:

Fairy tale ends are so pretty on you, mira-chan!

Beautiful and inspiring!

I'm trying to thicken it so I can war a wrapped crown braid without tilting my head to the thicker side. :D Some of that fairytailing is never going to go away probably.

chen bao jun, thank you. It was a combination of vitamin deficiency, stress and illness (having the flu 3 times in one year did not help).
bonbon58, maybe. :) There is that meet in the plans and hopefully I can make to that one.

Wow, I have read the comments made here, and how true they are, you have absolutely lovely hair! Congrats on your 1 year hairiversary, and thanks for posting your pics, I have enjoyed looking at your beautiful fairy princess hair.

January 25th, 2015, 07:29 PM
Wow, ten years! I am getting close.

Anyway, your hair is gorgeous. Thank you for sharing your progress!

January 25th, 2015, 08:37 PM
You have some of my favorite fairytale ends. Congratulations on 10 years.

January 26th, 2015, 07:46 AM
So beautiful and so inspirational! :thud:
Not only is your hair gorgeous and envy inducing, but your patience and determination to improve your ends is admirable! (And successful! I can definitely see the thickness has moved down quite a bit.)

Thanks for posting this, and congratulations!!! :cheese:

January 26th, 2015, 09:52 AM
Wow, congratulations on ten years! :D Your hair and fairy tale ends are just gorgeous and I can definitely see how your hair has become more and more beautiful over the years.

bte, Agnes Hannah, Angela_Rose, ravenheather, veryhairyfairy, Laisik Thank you!

:blushing: I think it's more stubbornness in my part than patience. :lol: I really appreciate the encouragement.
I'm now able to wear a wrapped crown braid occasionally but essentially the stars need to align and braid has to be done is a super specific way for it to happen. So hopefully I'm getting close to not having my head tilt towards the thicker end.

January 26th, 2015, 08:36 PM
Happy hair anniversary! You've got such lovely waves! Beauteous!
