I have no interesting pics to share, my hair is actually shorter now than it was a year ago, haha! But it's comin' back, and it's gonna stop traffic when it does. :cheese:

I just wanted to take the time to say what a really, amazingly wonderful community this is! It is really something special. Everyone is so supportive and friendly and helpful! I have made some really good friends too!

Also, I thought it would be fun to list all the things I have tried on my hair this last year which I never had before!

-honey
-katam
-egg shampoos
-soapnuts
-shampoo bars
-baking soda
-acid rinses
-rhubarb
-Dairy Whip (it's a type of shampoo, not whipped cream!) :-)

Thanks again to everyone for making this such an awesome place!!:D

Happy 1 year Anniversary!

You're not alone either in having shorter hair today than you did when you came here.
Mine is shorter too but I at least got rid of the henna.

I decided to forgo my 1 yr and hope that at 2 yrs. i'll have a lot more length.
I'm sure you will too!

Happy Anniversary, Mellie! :cheese: You're hair may not be longer, but it certainly is looking lovely! :blossom:

You're not alone with the lack of anniversary photos. On both of my LHC anniversaries, my hair was virtually the same length as it was upon my joining.

The main thing is the knowledge we get along the way and the good friends we meet.

I'm very happy that you're here. :)

What did rhubarb do to your hair? Colour it red? How did you apply it? Did it treat your hair kindly?

(inquiring minds want to know!)

Thanks everyone!! You guys are so awesome!!! :-)

Sky, rhubarb made my hair blond actually!! If you look in my blog you can see it, I just did a little test patch but it was quite a pretty color!

Happy Anniversary! You've got the shiniest, most beautiful hair, and I love to follow your experiments (and unfortunately your purchases, too, lol!) I can't wait to see what comes next. Just, please, make it affordable and not too complex :smile:
