Hello everybody! Do you still remember me? :rolleyes: I haven't been on this forum for +/- 6 months now because of health problems... Everything is getting better now, so I thought I'd give an update!

I CUT MY HAIR!!!!

http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=23891&d=1468512491

Just kidding! I'm sorry, I couldn't resist :lol: For those who don't remember this: these are a part of my bangs, I grew them out 1.5 years ago and it's a bit of a pain, to say the least. Here's a comparison (2015-2016, one year of difference):

As for the rest, I didn't do much last couple of months. I've been pretty sick so my hair wasn't my number 1 priority to be honest. I did maintain though, as I planned (at 36"). I cut my hair in a deeper U-hem so my bangs will catch up faster and it won't look so weird :lol: I *hated* my hemline before because it was really thin (grown-out layers...) but maintaining *definitely* helped!! This is how my hair looks now, I'm pretty happy with it!

Here's a one-year comparison (my hair did obviously grow in 2015!)

I've had problems with my breathing. Not sure if you remember, but I took *a lot* of medication for it (asthma). But apparently the doctors made a mistake and there was a *way* bigger problem. I did breathing therapy and everything is back okay, I'm detoxing right now because I'm quitting with taking the meds. One of them was even on the black list in America, I was so shocked when I found out about that. I quit using them 2 weeks ago and now my body is detoxing like crazy... Anyhow, my health is soooo much better now my breathing is back to normal! It's amazing!!

For a second I thought, NO, not another I-cut-my-hair-off thread. ;) You had me going there. :lol: It looks great. Sometimes it really thrives when you can leave it alone for a while, and it obviously did! Gorgeous! :D

That's what your hair looks like after health issues?

I am sorry to hear you had health problems. Obviously your long hair didn't get the memo and decidedly to stubbornly grow in beautifully during the past several months.

Welcome back!

Wow, maintaining is SO working for you!!! Looks just amazing :D

I'm growing out a section of bangs too and they're right about the same place as yours, and I'm still maintaining at 36/37" through this year... we're like growth strategy hair twins, haha!!

Keep on keeping on - it's working for you!!!

Well, in the end I will feel better than I've ever done before! I can exercise now for the first time in my life without the feeling of passing out because of my breathing! Wonderful!!
