Jumping on this wagon, I will take my photos during the first week every month as my school schedule and lighting/weather allow. I have a striped shirt set aside for photos with 1/2 ince stripes. That should show the progress better.

I've already taken my length pic for January when I washed my hair yesterday. I'm not sure I can post pics yet, maybe don't have the post count. I don't seem to be seeing all of the pics either. But as soon as I work it out, I'll post mine! 😀 One of my goals this year is to take monthly length pics, so this is perfect!

I guess I'll be the shorty of this thread :laugh: I was going to get a trim this month but now I'm not sure about it. So I'll post my 1/19 pic now. My ends are somewhat flippy at this length so it's difficult to take a proper picture. I tell myself to take a photo when my hair is wet but I keep forgetting... so this will do for now. Hopefully I can figure out how to take better progress photos along the way.

Not sure I can commit to EVERY month but I'll at least start! Here's a recent length shot - I'm used to a straight hem but since about bcl onwards my ends have often had a slight curl to them, although on occassion they do lie more straight. I don't think it's damage because they feel ok and aren't terribly splitty but I'm not sure why the curl over the last several months... Ideally I'd want to cut about an inch and a half to even out and thicken the hem anyways but classic is so close I just can't sacrifice the length yet!

Yep my eventual goal is Waist Length. So about 18 - 20 inches to go after I maintain. I tell myself this is a marathon not a sprint. Iíd rather take my time have some patience and get there with a really full hemline. Than push and have it not look good. I also need it to look good for work. I really hate my undercut right now as itís growing out.

I'm excited to join in :cheer: I've just given myself a trim so that my hemline is more U-shaped. I also shortened my face-framing layers, the shortest is just a touch above collar bone. I've left that heavy layer at the back, which is sitting around shoulder lenght, well alone. So I'll be happy to watch that grow in over the year.

Happy growing everyone! :bounce:

Here's my January pic, and my starting point for this year!

https://i.imgur.com/KAua4eV.jpg?1

I will be maintaining around waist for a while so my pictures will be more about letting my thickness travel down and less about gaining length. I have at least 7 cm of see-through ends I'd like to gradually trim off, that'll probably take me most of the year as I intend to microtrim.

I think I'll join. Is it necessary to post absolutely monthly, or is slight variation allowed? I will be microtrimming every 5-6 weeks, so I don't think monthly length documentation would be so accurate for me. It would just look confusing and like I didn't make any progress at all, so is it acceptable if I take a length shot after each trim and track those instead?

Anyway, here's my first length shot after my trim from the 2nd of January.

Remind me again how to measure length? I remember once upon a time in 2012 when I joined that you measure at the start of your hairline on your forehead and go back with it....is that still the way to do it?

ArabellaRose

Right, here we go! After worrying all month that I hadn't gained any length (I've never tracked my growth before so I've no idea what my rate is like) I've gained half an inch, exactly what I was hoping for! I'm atleast on track to reach BCL (5 inches growth needed from December) and possibly even TBL (6 inches growth from December) by the end of the year. I'll be marking my tape measure BEFORE microtrim because that's just how it's worked out because I didn't fully think this through when I started.

https://i.postimg.cc/D06nqRV6/20190111-132414.jpg (https://postimg.cc/p5mwvGL5)

And here's my length shot, the bottom of my top is roughly TBL so I'll be using this in every length shot to track my progress towards my end goal, my hands are at hip.

How nice, so many participants! Every head of hair looks great!

I'm joining as well and sort of start at the end of the month as my last photo was at the end of the previous month. Here's for comparison, lately my hair has been growing pretty slow, about 0,5 centimeter per month (I measure even though at this lenght it's kind of difficult to get accurate measurements).. Most probably due to a little one growing in my belly. Oh well, at least it's still growing, where I cut off the photo is where arm pit length is.

Haha I wish! I think it looks like that because the photos are not 100% aligned and also not 100% taken from the same distance. I measured and got 0,5 centimeter and when I counted the stripes on my shirt I am actually still above the same white line as last month ;) In one photo its more 'poofed out' and on the other its smoother and more inwards, thats why it also seems longer. Anyways, it still grew! Yay ;)

I measured and got 0,5 centimeter and when I counted the stripes on my shirt I am actually still above the same white line as last month ;) In one photo its more 'poofed out' and on the other its smoother and more inwards, thats why it also seems longer. Anyways, it still grew! Yay ;)
Yea I can see now they are lined up slightly different but I still see good growth. Measuring can be tricky too and I know Ive gotten different readings on the same exact day so I just skip measuring now LOL. I think everything until apl seems to take the loooooongest but you are getting there!

Took a length shot before my trim on tuesday, so i could see this month's progress better, but my hair Never lies exactly the same in pics, so it's hard to gouge the actual growth... Oh well, i am fairly sure it grew somewhat. At least it looks like my demarcation line looks more even in the january pic.

Showing my monthly growth here. I have been negligent with moisturizing my hair this month due to family busyness, and you can definitely tell in the lack of lustre in my Jan pic - however, yet again, I have an increase in length! and my hemline is filling out nicely.

Just to repeat here for anyone new - my hair wasn't growing at all for most of last year, I began to trim and finally my hair grew an amazing 2 inches in 2 months! Trimming to healthy ends got my hair growing again.

I will only trim a half inch every 2 months for the rest of the year, and tomorrow is my 2 month trim.

I was just past TBL at my last length photo, am now just an inch or so from classic. Thinking I may hit FTL this year!

My last length photo was from the very end of December, so I'll check in today with a length. Sadly, my previous skirt bit the dust, so I had to find a different skirt I could use to measure (quite difficult, when most of my skirts are solid in color).

I'll post here the same I posted on SL to APL thread. I included a photo from December because it's better quality. Other than that, these photos are pretty terrible: no good place to take pictures in this house, the phone I'm using is beyond ancient and the lighting in our bathroom is just strange and makes my hair color even stranger. The Dec photo was taken in my mother's bathroom lol. Just FYI, these are all direct links so you won't be directed to imgur.

This is from today, February 5th
Hair is a little weird bc it hasn't been washed in a while and was braided and bunned a few times, hence the difference between the photos, which may result in my hair looking longer than it actually grew compared to the other pic, since the waves are more stretched)

Thanks! I know it's growing, just because it Feels longer every month, even though it's not that apparent in the photos. I just wish i got to APL faster, but it seems like i will have to wait till summer at least. :)

I can follow my growth Only according to my demarcation line. With my texture, any other way is impossible :lol:

Nice growth! I definitely can see the growth as well and it is also very obvious that in your february photo your hair lays more wavy so that eats up a bit of the length for sure. It will get better each month!

I have a hard time believing my growth. I always try to keep my head as straight as possible in length shots to ensure their accuracy. There are less than two months and one microtrim between these shots, but it seems crazy to me just how much the transparent part has moved down!

My hair colour changes sooo much in these photos! My hair looks much nicer in the second photo, it also looks a bit longer.
(I definitely see some growth since my trim on 17th October 2018 - the big chop was in early May 2018, my hair sadly hovers around this awkward length :( )
Do you guys think it looks longer?

Hair is a little weird bc it hasn't been washed in a while and was braided and bunned a few times, hence the difference between the photos, which may result in my hair looking longer than it actually grew compared to the other pic, since the waves are more stretched)

I skipped February because I went on holiday and then it was too late really. So here's January to March, and I guess I'll stick to doing this every other month. The progress will probably be clearer that way.
2 cm microtrim at the end of January, so I'm maintaining for now.

Jan and Feb photos are not good for documenting progress but I'm tempted to keep taking my photos that way just for the sake of consistency... Ah well.

March 14th, 2019, 09:43 PM
I always measure with my hair brushed completely straight because the wave pattern varies day-to-day. Sometimes it'll dry almost straight and other times with loose spirals, with seemingly no rhyme or reason :P

blackgothicdoll
March 14th, 2019, 09:48 PM
Hmm... We've been having this convo in another thread too. I'm confused because I wouldn't want some one to tell me I'm cheating if I want to join the next length based thread. I've measure my hair stretched/straight for the last 8 years, it's not logical to me to measure it 'curly' when the only time it's in that state is right after a wash. But now that I've sworn off heat I don't wear it straight either. It's just up and away.

And that's just me but I see the same for other curlies, the lenght will always vary depending on wet or dry, styling, the position of the moon...not even kidding lol.

It's almost like telling straight hair ppl they're cheating for having straight hair. It's all there, just has to be unravelled to see, like a garden hose I like to say.

I'm not gonna take a pic of my unstretched hair every month, it's not gonna budge LOL

Eta: or maybe I will just to visually demonstrate why I'm so against it. Hmm...

littlestarface
March 14th, 2019, 09:55 PM
Uh no that's not cheating.

cheating would be if you put your head straight one month and then next month you lean your head all the way to your back and say "hey guys look how long it grew in a month":rollin: now that's cheating

milosmomma
March 14th, 2019, 11:45 PM
I agree with both Lithostoic and blackgothicdoll.
I think that was me in another thread saying I should use a washday photo for my monthly progress. I was thinking that my texture doesn't effect the length much and that the ones I had used so far were also the same texture. But for me that doesn't really effect length. It makes sense to want to see the length in a photo.
For measuring your hairs true length that obviously has to be done stretched right? I don't regularly measure my hair but when I do I always pull what little wave I do have straight. So idk why anyone would think that is cheating :lol:

Just to be safe i'm going to start this out with i'm not offended. i thought i would share how i do my photos and my measurements. for the circumstances of this thread being the monthly length photos i did decide to pick one day out of the month regardless of where i am in my wash cycle and how bouncy or not bouncy my curls are to take a picture on my natural hair. i chose the 20th since its in the middle of the month. i also take stretched length shots as well but i normally wait till a friday. i find that i use the 11th and the 22nd depending on where it falls closer to my wash. the reason why i do that is because i oiled it and used a BBB to distribute and braided it. i take it right out of two side 3 strand braids and bbb a bit and snap! i find it easiest to see my color demarcation line that way as well so i post that manipulated look both loose and stretched. i check the length and see how far the color has gone in about a month.

now as for measuring i do it on the 1st of the month on dry hair stretched by my DH. calling milestones i do in 3 steps. i'll claim it when i reach it wet,(verified by the DH which i call step one to be official) i'll call it stretched which is when i feel it is acceptable to start popping into the next thread down and appear less in the one that i was in. i consider my hair classic stretched officially (verified by LCHers with a picture and the DH's measurements). third i'll call it unstretched in which case i respectfully leave the graduated thread! feeling that i officially in my own eyes reached the milestone.

Ok it's barely the 17th but I got impatient! I feel like I may technically be at SL now which is pretty exciting.

Was it not me that should be offended? Because it was my cheating;)
I didn't take it that seriously. I knew you were joking. Thanks for compliment.

You are so right Paulownia, thanks so much!!

Hey, so yesterday it was time for my monthly photo. I don't see much progress from February except maybe the U-cut of my hair has become straighter (side hair has become longer). I don't really know so you can make your own conclusions.

Just for fun: the pic from right after the last trim I had: on 17th October 2018:

19th February (so you can compare with this month's pic):

19th March (with bun waves)
https://i.postimg.cc/ZY2hBVNH/3-19th-March-2019-Edited.jpg

I don't see much growth since 19th Feb... but my hair looks more the same length. It could be the slight curls at my ends, maybe making it look shorter this month. My hair is a weird thing. I wish it would grow!! But you can see it has decided to grow a bit since Oct - seems pretty slow. Also, I swear, the trim made it so much shorter. When I hit the 6 month mark of no trimming, I'm just gonna let it grow. Please grow, hair!

Note: My hair looks so much straighter than it actually is ;) this is what happens when a curly brushes their hair. (Sorry for long post!)

Here's my monthly hair growth update from feb to march, both cut off at about APL more or less:

March:

Of course it is hard to see growth as my hair wants to be more wavy this time, oh well..

And Stardreamer, I definitely see growth in your photo's! I think it might be harder to see because of your texture but if I look at your stripes I can definitely see your hair has been growing! :)

I swear I posted an update to this thread a few days ago, what happened? Lol I'm sure user error.
Stardreamer I responded to you when I THOUGHT I posted before but here goes again. I can definitely see more length in the second pic and more wave in the third pic. Even with the trim it looks like you're gaining.
Waveurly I can see tons of growth too. Your ends look softer too.
I'll have to edit this later and add this months photo when at a real computer.

I think on Apr 1 I will assess the hemline and maybe switch my stats to waist. It's hard to tell but I think I'm there. I dont have long between waist and hip so if I wait too long I might skip straight to hip! :lol:

I just realised I'm always wearing my red pants, I don't mean to but I guess they're always clean on the 18th and 19th Haha

No problem! It's hard to notice when you see your hair everyday, that's why I love this thread. Lol red pants pics. It will be a surprise next month if they are availible on the 18th/19th

Hi All!

I am so excited to be posting, I've been lurking for a long time and finally got the courage to post. I feel like I have found my tribe of long hair lovers! I have been growing out a Pixie for a few years. My Pixie was blonde, and I have been growing natural ever since. The blonde on the ends is the last of the pixie. I want to reach classic eventually.

Paco you hair looks great. The blonde ends look like an intentional hombre and are a great way to see how far you've come from pixie length.

i would say it's difficult to tell with your wonderful texture. Although your hemline looks thicker this month then last and you seem to have more volume this month then last as well. I would say that would be due to growth!

Thank you! Yes, it is so cool to see the progress! It was totally unintentional after deciding to grow out my natural, just the leftover blonde from growing. I suppose as I keep doing my monthly search and destroy/micro trim, the blonde will be less and less. I want to reach classic! I love being a part of this community :)

I have to agree its very unique! I'm sure we are all happy to have you aboard the long hair train. Best of luck with Classic! Im sure you can achieve it! you seems to be already at the mid back abyss. I would enter a length thread they are very helpful and supportive with the journey. My first goal was classic and I'm currently there now and heading on to FTL!

Oh wow, its wonderful how healthy it is! Especially with the dye. My hair didn't take so well. It did love when I highlighted it red but I put so many different colors in the natural sceme it just damaged my hair after doing it too long. So natural color here I come lol!

My hair is really durable naturally I guess. I take a lot of care when I dye it, I use coconut oil before and always deep condition within the week after I dye. I also don't do much with my hair, it's bunned for work everyday and I only wash it 1x a week.

Wow quite the gift! I also wash my hair once a week today is wash day with a protons treatment for about 20 minutes. I switch the treatment up every week. From oil to proteins to moisture. Seems to be working quite well.

i don't think that looks bad at all. it just looks like your waves gave you some shrinkage in the back. i would say if it bothers you ponytail it and let it be for a while. Other then that i think your hair is lovely.
