My hair is finally at my waist, and I couldn't have done it without tips along the way from this community :) Thanks plenty! Wish I had a pic - will have to get on that.

For whatever reason, my clip wasn't keeping my hair up at the school on Mon., so I kept re-doing it, and I got so many sweet comments from co-workers who had no idea how long my hair is. Amazing feeling :) I am petite, so I guess it's not a gigantic achievement, but having gone through chemo, it's just a feeling that seemed distant for so long!

Petite you may be, but the achievement is still HUGE! :hifive: I'm really happy for you. :D I think you deserve to treat yourself... What's your poison? Hair toys? Oils? Henna/cassia? You're allowed to celebrate!

Just growing your hair back after chemo is an accomplishment and getting to waist is even moreso.

Treat yourself to something nice. You deserve it! :flowers:
