View Full Version : 2 Years of Growth!

August 15th, 2016, 11:55 AM
2 years ago I decided to grow out my hair. I guess it was sort of on a whim since I had never really thought about having long hair before and figured I would pretty much just stop cutting it. Eventually I found out that it is not quite that simple if you actually want it to look good and found LHC looking for tips for better care. I probably wouldn't have made it to my goal of growing for 2 years without the information on here and since I recently hit my goal I wanted to post and maybe provide so inspiration for some others since I definitely found some here.

Starting out

Getting Awkward

More Awkward:

16 Months or so:

19 Months:

2 Years!:

Hair tied back like I usually wear it:
Front Back

Thanks for reading. I'm really glad I grew my hair out and fortunately pretty much all of the crap I took in the awkward stage has stopped and most people seem to like my hair and feel it suits me, not that I would cut it even if they didn't.

You're looking a bit like Kit Harrington in the mid-length photos. Your hair looks so shiny and thick! :) Nicely done.

Thanks for the compliments NorraVarg, lithostoic, triumphator!, summergame, Agnieszka, and althara, really appreciate them! I used to laugh at my sister and girls in general for always giving each other compliments about their hair etc. But now that I have long hair and I understand the effort required to get it to look like you want and the inevitable number of bad hair days regardless I think I understand, at least in part.

Thanks Cg, yogagirl, lapushka, hobbitlocks, Honey, rmani and Fru fru! Gotta thank genetics for the thickness, which was miserable in the awkward stage, but definitely something I really enjoy now, though it's quite hot in the summer.

Congratulations :) I think you look great with long hair, I'm also more than a bit envious on the thickness and shine lol

Wow, your hair is awesome!! How thick is it, do you know the pony circumference?

I can't believe how shiny and thick your hair is! Congrats on the two years!

Your story made me laugh - I agree I don't know if anyone knows what they are getting into when they've never had long hair before (this was me too)! Thank goodness for LHC to set us in the right direction :laugh:
