It's that time of the month.

Noooooo, not that time. :blushing:

Length pic time! And as I've just posted my last monthly shot for this year, I noodled around with all that's been and came up with this evidence of lengtherage from when I joined LHC in April 2014 (61cm/24"--APL+) until December 2017 (98cm/38.5"--TBL+), with a snip/shape break in growth during 2015:

I maybe even mighthaps could be now call myself a longhair? <<< longer hair does not = betterer worderage, especially if I'm the practicing wordsmith. :rolling:

So, how's it hanging? Any progress to report?

I love how the length gives such a nice shape to your hair, especially the weight of it and how it hangs :cloud9: lovely waves and colors! Gives me inspiration, especially as it's only been about a year and a bit that I've been on LHC and I also started here with roughly BSL length hair.

Thank you so much, and happy growing (or maintaining, or straddling the lines), racheldelrey, Groovy Granny, Atarah and Alissalocks! :flowers: I forgot to add that from the end of April until the end of '14 I didn't trim, then '15 was all about the trim, then in '16 I trimmed every few months with a 6ish month no-trim challenge at the end of the year, and '17 has been tri-annual trims. It's my way of enjoying the journey; every step of the way.

Indeed it does grow! Besides, how are you supposed to come up with proper wordage when confronted with such overwhelming, glorious evidence?

Thankyou! Even monthly pics can feel like nothing is happening--not until you stitch the pics together, anyway. It's really helped keep me motivated, though, and can show all kinds of quirks you don't see day to day (no eyes in the back of the head, or cool twists of contortion, or long enough mirrors for me...).

*hair waves a thankyou to you* :D


Wow, great photos. Your hair looks stunning at all lengths, you must be very pleased and proud of your hair. :)

Ta, diddie! It's bunned most of the time because I swear it has a mind of its own (especially now it's longer), so this is about the only time it gets to shine. :wink:


More and more betterer every day! :laugh: :p Glorious hair!

Betterer is gooderer, oh inspirational one. :) I could get used to this longhair gig. :cool:


:thudpile: Incredible!

Naw, now I've gone all mushy under the pile of thudness! Thankyou!

Pssssh. You're making my hair blush. :p

Great progress. Goes to show that it does make a difference month to month and that patience (and not snipping or having it snipped in between due to frustration) really pays off.

Congrats. :thumbsup:

Interesting how there isn't much change from one month to the next, but it all adds up. I remember when I used to grow my hair out from a short haircut for A WHOLE YEAR! then cut it off from frustration because it wasn't long yet. It does take time.

Amazing Crystawni, thank you for compiling all your photos like that. It's super cool and must be really satisfying for you to look back on the growth of your magical tawny owl hair ;)

Stop having such nice hair, youíre making me jealous. XD

I simply adore your natural highlights, Iím so intrigued by them. What was your hair like as a child? Did you start out blonde, with the top layers of hair darkening as you got older, or have the highlights always been there?

Crystawni
December 4th, 2017, 05:23 PM
Good gravy! :waving: Hi guys! Thank you so much for your comments, Suze, lapushka, OhSuzi, CindyOfTheOaks, Fern, spidermom, Dendra, Ed, Tatsu, NightSister, Guitargod, Cg, Stray_mind, YumiYume (yay--I look forward to following your progress!), Seija, Jo Ann, dollhair, and Beeboo! :heartbeat No wonder my hair blazes red at times! :o

Beeboo, the highlights are from my always-tawny/alburnish hair losing pigment and turning white which started in my mid 20s. aka: going grey. I've just let them have their way, and style to let them shine (u-hemline and light layering in the last few inches as most are in the underlayer). I'm only recently getting silver hairs to add to the mix, which means I sport all the hair colours now (from white and silver, to blonde, red, brown and black). Confuddled hair, I haz it.

Wow, what great progress! Your hair is so pretty at all of the lengths! Congrats on reaching your goal! I also love all of the different colors and waves too.

Crystawni
December 4th, 2017, 06:39 PM
Thank you, Dark40! :blossom: There's a little more lengtherage in my future, but I don't see me going too much longer. Just enough to look TBL when my hair is curlier. But this is LHC... Never say never.

Dark40
December 4th, 2017, 06:46 PM
You're welcome, Crystawni:blossom: Oh, ok cool! I've also have more lengtherage in my future as well. I'm not stopping until I can't handle it anymore. I have in my profile that my goal is Ankle Length. I hope that I'll be able to handle it at that length since it's never been that long before. I bet it does look TBL when it's curlier! TBL is also a nice length I think too! I think if I don't like mine at Ankle Length I may cut it back to Mid Thigh. Yeah, you've got that right. This is LHC! Never say never.

Crystawni
December 4th, 2017, 06:55 PM
Your journey to ankle is going to be epic, Dark40! Good luck wherever you end up, and please keep us posted. Your posts always bring a smile to my face.

Your hair colors are so pretty! You’re also very good at taking consistent pictures-these look like time-lapses. :)

Wow, so pretty! And it looks so healthy too, all that shine!

Definitely gives me encouragement and inspiration. My hair is currently about the length of your #8 photo. If I can look forward to anything close to your growth in 2-3 years, I'll be thrilled!

It defs keeps it interesting! :grin:

Of course! :p Thank you school of fish! Your own (growing out underlayer) pics and documentation have been an inspiration to me (I'm doing it from the reverse side after a compact cut scragglefest).

Thank you T0n1c! I got my own inspiration from other's pics, so know how it pays off in the long run. Keep on growing strong!

:blossom: Thank you all! :blossom: I was refreshing my face framers last night, and had the urge to snip more... Fuller hem, up to BSL mayhaps? Loads of long, swingy layers like the front? I think the silly season coupled with the constant blast of summer heat is getting to me. I put my hair up for the night and hid the scissors quick smart. :lol:

All because the length at the back is making it harder to blend the shorter face framers aaaaaaaaaaaaaaall the way down, where the shortest front strand is end-of-nose length. Long hair problems. Bahahahahaha!
