View Full Version : 1.5 years on LHC

Well, okay. I have actually been here since 2011, but forgot about my hair, gave up, chopped to pixie several times in the last few years.
March 2015 I decided to give it a go, here was the length shot I got. (terrible I know)

In about a year and a half I went from shoulder to APL....

Here is today October 2016:

Is a year and a half a long time or does that sound like a natural length of time for that amount of length?

I got 2 "larger" trims and have done several micro trims in that 1.5 years because I am growing layers as well.
But looking back on the photos from a year ago make me feel like my hair has gotten pretty long! (Longer than I am use to.)
My BF comments on how long my hair has gotten, looking in the mirror every day stopped me from noticing I suppose, but his comments made me feel better about my length.
My aunt was very rude in September, made a comment about my length, "Is your hair even long enough for an up-do?" for my cousins wedding, made me feel insecure. When you work so hard you just want someone to notice, as much as I grow my hair for myself, getting complimented is nice every once in awhile, especially from family, but I digress.. :D Her comment made me question, "Is my hair even growing?"
Looking at these photos kind of boosted my confidence tonight. One would assume that if I keep it up and experience no stalls I will hit my goal length in roughly 2 years. Which is fine by me!

Thank you LHC, I have neglected you, but no more!

That is awesome and significant growth for "only" 1.5 years. That's a *lot*. I mean it too! I'm amazed at how much it grew in that short a time. Mine doesn't grow that fast, for sure. :) :lol:

Nice! :D :cheer:

I wasnt sure because I have never actually "measured" my growth, you know? I feel like other girls here grow so much faster than I do! I have never grown my hair past shoulder-apl length, and this is the longest I have ever grown my hair before. So everything is just, new to me.
I took a measuring tape to my head last night, and i measure at 17" long but for me to hit solid waist i will need 21-22" of hair, which is about 4"-5". I think I have a short torso. I should hit waist in about 9 months, and a solid hem probably in a year.
Which I think is the normal amount of time, 2.5 years usually is the time people seem to need to get from shoulder to waist from what I have seen on forums.. ive been researching lol so i think i have better growth than I thought, hopefully I remain on that path. A year isnt too long. :D For so long I felt like my hair grew super slow, but things have changed! I feel proud.
