I figured I'd start one since it's almost 2 am october 1st here;) I'm finally at 35! That's a semi goal of mine where I think I'll start to microtrim every month for a while. Last month I was at 34+ and not really at 35. Seems unreal to have reached one of my major goals. When I'm happier with the condition of my ends I'll start to grow to classic. I think I'm at hip right now.
Enough talk about my hair, let's hear about yours!

It's not October here yet. I'm am hoping for a big growth spurt!

17 and a half. That's an increase of 1/2 inch over last month. Not bad.

So sad. My hair has completely stalled out and has lost length over this summer. (Truth be told, I have had two eensy trims- less than 1/2" ea. over a 6 month period-- BUT I still SHOULD have gained some length!)

:(

I am hanging around at a meager 21" right now. I feel like a long hair fraud!!

I think that I am going to stop measuring for a bit-- this has turned into just another thing to stress and fret over!

hmm maybe I should have dh measure my hair tonight so I have a starting length.

33", up 0.5" since last month. It grew a little more than a half inch - I dusted the hemline yesterday.

20 inches. Growth spurt time! I made about 3/4" this past month.

I measured a couple days ago and got 37.25 inches about. Woohoo! :D

22 3/4ths. Added 3/4 of an inch.

Anje
September 30th, 2008, 09:36 PM
Hmmm. Can't find my tape measure, so I took a length shot, which is in my sig. More or less maintaining this til the ends are a bit less see-through.

43 1/2 - finally some growth, yay! :hollie:

I am at 33.5", up a little less than .5 from last month! Hopefully my major slowdown is over!

23.5! 1inch in a month and 2 weeks!

I think I'm right at 29", which I believe is a half inch (maybe a bit more) from last month. Because of the wavies getting an accurate measurement is difficult. However, I am officially at nipple length, however many inches that is, hehehe :)

35 inches and good ends.

29½

I have had a half inch of growth each month since May when I started to measure.
No summer spurt.

But I know my hair is not of the fast growing kind.

I have to hope growth won't slow down during fall/winter :-)

24 inches here...lost an inch to splits and finally ridding myself of layers.

NOOOO!!!! I just measured in at 25", I was 27" but appear to have lost 2 inch's in the past few months. I think i'm at a stand still. shudder:

30 inches, which was then trimmed to 29.2 inches :wink:

I'd love to post my measure-in...but I've got 11 days until I measure (I measured in last month on 9/12). I'll post then :)

Brianna
October 1st, 2008, 08:45 AM
My measuring is never terribly accurate, but I seem to be somewhere between 26,5 and 27 inches. It was 26,2 or so when I measured two and a half weeks ago, so I seem to have had a small growth spurt. :)

October 1st, 2008, 09:03 AM
Haven't measured for a while... now's a good time to start again. 17.5 front to back. Very front piece measures about 6.5in.

I remember when my front piece measured 12 inches...(sigh)

It seems like it's taking forever....but I know it's growing. It grows even faster when I don't cut it. :D

Just measured in at 26". It's grown an inch since I joined here even with a trim last month.

32.7 inches (83 cm) here! I'm growing, slowly but my hair is still growing.
Moreover, in three months' time it will be one year round since my latest haircut...I hope I can skip this annual haircut and go straight to next goal: haircut around my graduation (march 2010 maybe).

I grew half an inch and am now barely BSL. I decided to wait till the end of the year until I will call myself truly BSL> :)

Only 0.4 inches this month, which is less than usual. It's at 36.9" now.

I had a few months of no growth, too, jojo. Hang in there! It absolutely will start growing again, and then you'll be amazed at the sudden change. :flower:

I'm now at 36.61 inches, or 93 cm. My hair was 92 when I last got my hair trimmed so it grew 1 cm in less than a month... great!

I'm very happy! On to 37 inches! Come on!!!

October 1st, 2008, 06:55 PM
I'm going to call it 36 1/4". I trimmed to 35 the 3rd week of June and did one micro trim after that. So I'm happy with that.

1" growth taking me to 28" with healthy ends .... yay!!! I will reach my goal of BSL curly by Christmas and only 3" to my goal!

21 inches. No layers at all- cut straight across. Bangs. 3 months ago it was 28 inches with major layers, and I cut it. I both miss the length and like the new thickness of it.

Your hair is 28" and isn't BSL yet? How tall are you?!

Oskimosa
October 2nd, 2008, 12:43 AM
Officially October 2nd here, aaaaand.. *drumroll*

20.75" !!!!

There are some sprinter hairs on the left side of my head, evidentally. Makes for an interesting look, but yay! The biotin I've been taking must be having some effect, because that is ever so slightly up from previous growth of 1/2-1/3" per month. Last month I measured 20", so this is an exciting day.

I've got curly hair and it can spring up about 6" :) I am 5"6 and hit BSL straight at about 25".

Hooray! 35 and a half! I just had to document this length because I have a trim scheduled for next Tuesday.

Fencai
October 2nd, 2008, 07:30 AM
Im at 22" as of this morning. I think due to my waves that Im going to start wet measuring because Im getting too much of a differential when its dry.

Ah! I see. You poor curlies have to do so much work to get length!

21.75, the growth spurt is slowing down as I only had 0.75 of an inch when for the past several months I have had a whole inch. I think I am going to blame it at least partially on the hurricanes and bad water.

Chrissy
October 2nd, 2008, 04:01 PM
Holding at 14". I had one layer cut off. So for now I'm just going to grow w/o trims as long as it looks OK. First goal pony stub!!!

You are too silly! Of course this cannot become a new LHC term. It would vary waaay too much depending on the person. :P

I hate to measure my hair . . . it seems to grow so freakin' slooooow. I'm just barely at 19".

Cinnamon Hair
October 2nd, 2008, 09:29 PM
56" up from 55.5" so 1/2" growth this month. Could be a bit less since I had to measure several times for accuracy.

Odile
October 2nd, 2008, 10:26 PM
32 inches. And I don't remember what I posted for September, so I have no idea how much (if any) growth there is!

zaftig2k
October 3rd, 2008, 02:08 AM
Just trimmed again, so I am back at 42" (or still at 42"). Maybe a few more trims to get the very last of the old color of the ends. That will be sooooo nice.

Tami86
October 3rd, 2008, 03:30 AM
My first measurement was on the 28th of September (technically October :p) at 26.2" after trimming about an inch or so.

Melisande
October 3rd, 2008, 03:33 AM
30.3". No growth at all in the last month. :mad:

I have no idea how to measure, unless I ask someone else to do it???

BUT - for the first time since I joined my hair is starting to feel 'long' - to me, that is. It feels noticeably longer than usual, because it's starting to stay back over my shoulders. So that's a nice achievement!!!

Happy growing.

October 3rd, 2008, 11:35 AM
Finally 36"! It seemed to be stalling a little (I blame the weather being colder than I'm used to) so I'm VERY pleased. :) Thanks! If I hadn't seen this thread I wouldn't have measured, and would be bummed out about not much growth.

On the other hand, I seem to be entering another one of those phases where nothing seems to work right and everything but a cinnabun pulls in some way...

I'm at 19 inches. Up 1.5 inches since August 1st.

longinthehair
October 3rd, 2008, 02:08 PM
38" just barely..still no trimming..definite slow down in growth though..maybe a quarter inch per month now?... Don't believe I measured in in Sept..felt so little growth..Important thing is it's still growing though..it is most definitely past waist..and it's getting really securely pulled into belts, etc...I suppose it's on its way to tailbone...some day.

Fencai
October 3rd, 2008, 02:42 PM
im at a full 22". Its 4" total since I joined in June... not bad I guess!

October 3rd, 2008, 03:11 PM
I think I am around 21 inches. I wonder if I am measuring wrong because I am almost at APL so I feel like it should be at least around 23 or 24 inches. I am 5'9 and have a long torso so that's why (as a newbie) I am thinking I am doing something wrong. :confused:

October 3rd, 2008, 05:02 PM
Ah! I see. You poor curlies have to do so much work to get length!

:) Spiral curly no less! I think I was very realistic when I set my goal of BSL curly by xmas. When I reach waist straight, I'll be BSL curly and when I reach hip straight, I will be waist curly. Thank goodness it's finally spring in Sydney as my hair grows faster :)

I measure at 2 3/4 inches.:p I've just begun growing out my very short hair of 12 years. Today I got a dusting off the ends to even up some areas that had been razored in the past. Not sure exactly how long I'll go but the journey has begun!:o

I enjoy seeing all of your pics... beautiful hair you all have!:flower:

Henna may also be in my future. I'm studying up on the subject now and might jump off that bridge at the end of this month.

Do you measure from your crown or your front hairline? Most of us measure from the front hairline, which adds a few inches compared to when measuring from the crown area. This article (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/vbjournal.php?do=article&articleid=9) might be helpful. :flower:

I might trim a few inches and see if that encourages it any!

October 4th, 2008, 10:30 PM
I'm leaving my measurement the same, having had a trim DH has informed me that most of my hair is at 75 cm still (that's about 29.5 inches). Spring may have sprung on my hair :)

No measuring for me this month - and probably not in the near future, either.. I don't own a measuring tape right now -- so it'll be exciting when I come home :p

My hubby just measured my hair....and I measured in at 20 3/16"!! :D

Past measurements....

September: 19 7/8"
August: 18"
July: 17.5"

p.s. August is roughly 18"...could possibly be more than that.
