I apologize in advance for the large pics of my hair that's not all that pretty today. Air drying as a wavy, you never know what you're gonna get. :P

One year ago I finally consented to joining the LHC, after being very interested in growing my hair long for a few months. I constantly Googled information on how to grow my hair, keep it healthy, and no matter what I typed into a search engine, one of the first 10 sites would be the LHC. After lurking for a while, it seemed foolish to not join, seeing how there was only so much I could learn from the outskirts.

Bad hair day, but this pic was taken pretty close to my join date. I was hovering right around APL unstretched.

Reached BSL when I brushed out my waves, here in late May/June I think.

August/September, brushed out my crazy waves that day, totally didn't work LOL.

And now for today! TADA! My hair isn't looking all that great, oh well, but you can clearly see that I'm ALMOST ALMOST ALMOST waist wavy. And I'm solid waist stretched, so I called it almost one month ago :)

I've learned so much here on the LHC, and my hair is healthier, softer, and longer, even though it's still not long :( Stupid LHC, ruining my standards on what "long" hair is. I wash my hair once a week, I use coconut oil, I only shampoo my scalp, I use a BBB, I wear my hair up more than I ever have, and I braid it for bed.
Thank you LHC. <3 You're the best.

Congrats, your hair looks great! Totally relate to the "you never know what you're gonna get" part, but my waves never looks as even as your do. Your waves are lovely!

Your hair looks very healthy and beautiful. What lovely colour you have. Your routine is very much like mine and your one year hair journey is almost identical to mine.
I also just reached waist stretched out.

So WAY TO GOOOO!!!!! :cheer:
A big congratulations are in order. GOOD JOB! :thumbsup:

You guys are so sweet <3 Really, your kind compliments have made my day. :) :) :) I'm blushing furiously I feel so flattered LOL.

Also, I'm unsure if I'm only 2a. My hair might have gotten wavier, but I don't know. :shrug: If anyone cares to retype my hair for me that'd be awesome, because I was pretty tentative in my original typing. . .

Oh, I'm no expert either. A few posters agreed my hair is 2a and it doesn't have as many defined waves as yours, that's why I was thinking you could be between 2a and 2b. But I'm pretty new myself, so yeah, don't take my word for it. :couch:

Quoted for truth.

In the "real world" outside of LHC it would be considered long! Another year at the rate you're growing, and it'll be pretty long by LHC standards too.

Robot Ninja I really hope that I can get to Long by LHC Standards by Year 2 here. That way maybe I'll feel better about my hair :P And yeah, most people I talk to think that my hair is long, but I just can't see it. . . Oh well.

yahirwaO.o thank you so much. Nobody has ever compared my hair to perfection, so that might have been the nicest compliment I have ever received!!!

Your hair looks beautiful! I can't wait for mine to get past this awkward length!

And I hear you on the unpredictable wavy hair thing! I never know what to expect of my hair, I'm always surprised.
