View Full Version : April Measure In!!

April 1st, 2008, 07:17 AM
Hi Ladies and Gentlemen! It's time to get out your measuring tape!

Surprisingly, I went from 20" to 21" this past month! :cheese:

April 1st, 2008, 07:29 AM
Yay I'm at 72.5 cm or about 28.5 inches, yay growth! :) That's about .5 of an inch growth, this makes me happy.

April 1st, 2008, 07:35 AM
I measured a few days early, but I'm at 26 inches!

I have no clue what I was last month, though. But, I plan on measuring next month, so we'll see! :D

April 1st, 2008, 07:43 AM
I'm at 32.75 inches, 0.5" growth since last month. Pretty good growth regarding the fact that I was in a minor stall in early March. :cheer: Now I'm closer to hip than waist! Yay!

April 1st, 2008, 07:51 AM
Up 0,3" this month - to 37,3"
Still growing..hehe.. :joy:

April 1st, 2008, 08:10 AM
I am not sure, I grew just a little this month, I was almost at 26 inches, now I am. Well see next month. I can keep better track of it. =)

April 1st, 2008, 09:15 AM
total hijack...ladystar :agape: end hijack...just beautiful!

Oh as for me, I am hovering closer to 26...25 and 3/4"

April 1st, 2008, 12:21 PM
My first time measuring in over 2 years. :D 34 inches.

But something even better - in that time period my ponytail circumference seems to have gone from 4 to 6.5cm - and that was the most conservative result of 4 measurements as I don't trust myself with just one.

I hope it's not some weird fluke, so I'll measure again in a couple of weeks time to check - in the meantime, though, I'm delighted!

April 1st, 2008, 12:34 PM
48.25", so up .5" (net) from the beginning of the month at 47.75"...BUT, since I shed out my longest hair (and so dropped to 47.5"), hair actually grew .75"!

Also, reached mini-goal (aka neat number :p ) of 48" this month! :cool:

April 1st, 2008, 12:48 PM
36" - ½" of growth after 1" trim earlier in the month

April 1st, 2008, 12:48 PM
30" after I had an 1.5" trim last Saturday.

April 1st, 2008, 01:58 PM
25.5" curly, 28" pulled straight!!!

I somehow didn't believe it would actually grow, but it did! I estimate about an inch of growth in the past month (I remember being 27" pulled straight and on the short side of 25" curly!)

April 1st, 2008, 02:20 PM
This is my first official 1st of the month survey, and I'm at 19 inches. I measured sometime in late February/early March at 18 inches, so I'll call it a bit under an inch this month. I'm very happy with this.

April 1st, 2008, 02:26 PM
28" today!!

April 1st, 2008, 02:46 PM
At 35,4 inches, finally some growth again, it wasnt much these past months :)

April 1st, 2008, 02:51 PM
35.25", or three full inches since mid-January!

April 1st, 2008, 03:11 PM
Right around 34.5 inches. The last measurement I have is from six months ago in October which was 31.5 inches, so I'm on track for half an inch of growth every month. :)

April 1st, 2008, 03:16 PM
I'm at 36 1/4". I trimmed to 35" on February 10 so that is phenomenal growth for me. I'm thinking of staying at around 35 for a while to keep on improving my ends.

April 1st, 2008, 03:42 PM
I trimmed a few weeks ago so I'm at 93,5cm (36.8 in) now.

April 1st, 2008, 03:49 PM
36" for me not much growth last month must be stalling I hope I want to go much longer or at least into the 40's.

April 1st, 2008, 05:10 PM
15 1/4" for me still getting about an inch of growth

April 1st, 2008, 05:38 PM
21 when dry and 22 when wet. :)

April 1st, 2008, 06:15 PM
Starting to pick up a bit..only .50" more...to 35.75"...achieving that 36" is like pulling teeth these last couple of months!

April 1st, 2008, 06:15 PM
Hi all :D

At my three-monthly measure-in I weighed in at 44" wet - which is both Classic Length and my goal!
Next and final stop fingertip 50" :cheese:

April 1st, 2008, 06:17 PM
Wow - that beats me all to heck! - Superb! (just had to say...)

April 1st, 2008, 06:28 PM
Thanks longinthehair! We cross posted - but I see you have some great growth there too! (0.5" is what we wish for! Anything more is just dreaming for most of us! lol) nearly at 36 eh? :blossom:

April 1st, 2008, 06:29 PM
I started out at 16 1/2 inches and went to 18 inches, so that's about 1 1/2 inches this month! I can't believe my hair is growing that fast! Must be all the natural hair products I"m using!:)

April 1st, 2008, 07:05 PM
At 32inches and the ends are good.

April 1st, 2008, 09:32 PM
.... I had negative growth... With no scissors.... Granted, I did switch from using christmas ribbon, snipping it, then holding it along a yardstick to using an actual measuring tape (couldn't get up the stairs to go get it till just recently).... And I had at least half an inch of roots to henna last week.... What's wrong with my head?!

Last month: 23 and 3/8 inches
Today: 23.5 inches

Wait. That means I fail at math. I grew 1/8th of an inch.... but had at least half an inch of roots to cover... :confused::(:confused:

April 1st, 2008, 09:58 PM
I'm at 28 inches and a bit, with some leader hairs at 29 inches. I did a tiny dusting last month so it did grow a bit.

April 2nd, 2008, 12:40 AM
109 cm or 42,9 inches or mid-buttocks length. I canít remember when I last measured so I donít know what Iím up fromÖ Had a few S&Dís and a little trim since last I measured ;)

April 2nd, 2008, 01:00 AM
Now at 32 inches. :)

April 2nd, 2008, 02:11 AM
21.6". Gained 0.6". Seems like I'm back to my normal growth. I thank the lighter days for that. Yay! :hollie: I hope spring will be here soon.

April 2nd, 2008, 02:39 AM
19" That's one inch over the past two months. Right on average.

April 2nd, 2008, 04:35 AM
Ooo, Welll I was so worried this last month because I have been under a tremendous amount of stress- my nails have stopped growing and I know my hair has not been the same. But is HAS Grown!!!!

In the last month my hair has gone from 36 inches to 37!! :) I will soon be back at the 40 I was in August last year before I got sick of the split ends and chopped rather a lot off (About 6-8 inches- I went back from classic to waist)

April 2nd, 2008, 04:58 AM
im 22.8" not bad considering i trimmed to 22" end of Feb! 7.2" until i hit waist woot!!

April 2nd, 2008, 05:04 AM
22 1/2 inches. Grew 1/2 inch since last month.

1/2 inch is my usual growth I am finding. I only had an inch once or twice.

April 2nd, 2008, 05:45 AM
32" again for me, so no growth again. I have a heck of a taper though, and I suspect that those longest hairs are gradually shedding out. Perhaps I'll have some growth next month.

April 2nd, 2008, 07:38 AM
29,7 mot much grow, but I dust every month

April 2nd, 2008, 10:04 AM
still 18" blah

April 2nd, 2008, 02:37 PM
35.75" That's .5" of growth this month.

April 2nd, 2008, 02:47 PM
Last month I was 25.5 and now I am 26 in. I am a slow grower. :(

April 2nd, 2008, 02:52 PM
21.5 inches.
My first measurement, ever.

April 2nd, 2008, 03:25 PM
33, 5 inches, only two and a half inches to go to 35, and from there I'll go to 40. Seems like longer days means longer hair :D

April 2nd, 2008, 04:20 PM
I've only had 0,2 inches. But the good news is....it's 30,1 inches!!!! Yay. Now on to the last 6 inches... (I hope I make it)

April 2nd, 2008, 07:51 PM

A whopping growth of 1.25 inches!

I've been COing again, and doing a SMT treatment weekly. This seems to be helping immensley, as does wearing it up. I wear it down at home, when I can just relax, and up at work away from those hair eating chairs.

I'm very thrilled about the new growth, I was afraid I was going to end up terminal at 36 (which is where I've been for nearly half a year now)

I'm continuing to try to eat right and exercise, and have lost about 23lbs since Oct of last year. I would probably lose more if I could kick my sugar addiction.

April 2nd, 2008, 08:14 PM
My hair is 11 inches from the floor. There's only a few strands at that length. :)

April 2nd, 2008, 08:54 PM
31.1 :D So that is 0.5 inches it has grown. Happy with that tho.

April 2nd, 2008, 09:17 PM
I am not able to measure my own hair so I have no idea of the # but I am at waist but only when wet/stretched eh?

April 2nd, 2008, 09:25 PM
Still at 34" and a 3" PTC. Not as bad as I thought it would be!

April 2nd, 2008, 11:25 PM
Went from 28.5 to an even 29 inches. I was happily surprised as I thought I had stalled. :D

April 2nd, 2008, 11:35 PM
Holding at 54.5" No growth this month.

The Flame
April 2nd, 2008, 11:43 PM

I don't think that I've measured since LHC went down.

April 3rd, 2008, 01:10 AM
I'm at 26.75 inches, at my longest layers (there are about 4 inches difference between my longest and shortest layers--otherwise I'd have pyramid hair). It was last measured March 8th, though, so my progress hasn't been over a whole month.

April 3rd, 2008, 08:45 AM
33 and 3/4 ":cheese:

I am sure Goji Juice and Moonchasers Sweet Success Oil helped achieve this

April 3rd, 2008, 11:19 AM
So I measured this morning. I'm 22 at the drag in front, and 21 at back. I measure from the crown area to tip in back. I had a two inch trim on Dec 10. I trimming today because its a Morrocco Method thicking day. I think I will do 3 inchs because, basically, my dear mother likes shoulder blade. Actually, though I like waist, I'm happy to break even on length. In some ways I think shoulder blade or arm-pit is a good proportion on me.

April 3rd, 2008, 01:45 PM
I had 1/2 an inch of growth bringing me to 40 inches. This is great after my big 5 1/2 inch trim. My hair feels so much better.

April 3rd, 2008, 06:12 PM
I measured a bit early, on March 30th, and got 91,7 cm/36.1 inches. That's up about half an inch in less than a month, since I last measured on March 5th or thereabouts.

April 3rd, 2008, 06:34 PM
i'm at 34", which is up 1.5" from the last time I measured, in the middle of February.

April 3rd, 2008, 07:00 PM
29 inches :)

April 4th, 2008, 10:52 AM
From 33" to 33.75". I think it's slowed down since I changed my diet. :(

But, what I don't understand is that it looks longer than the tape says. I am so confused.

April 5th, 2008, 03:55 AM
I trimmed half-an-inch on Thursday evening, so I remain at 43.5" this month.

April 5th, 2008, 06:42 AM
i got 26.75 (68cm) this morning from which are 3.6 (9-10cm) virgin hair (i grow out).

April 5th, 2008, 08:52 AM
I went from 60 cm in December to 63.5cm, measured today.

In inches that is 23 5/8" in December and right now 25" exactly. With one trim done.

Very late to this thread.
I am at 25".

It's been so long since I had my Mom measure so I thought I would. I am at the very bottom of BS :)

Congrats on all the growth for everyone!

April 5th, 2008, 03:37 PM
I just had to measure my as well. Last time I measured it, it was 1m (39 1/4'') and today it's 1.06m (41 3/4''). Yay!!! Too bad I can't remember when I last measured it. Here is a picture of the length:

April 5th, 2008, 04:41 PM
I'm at 29". Wish I could make it to grow faster.

April 6th, 2008, 02:55 AM
33"...Foot till my goal!

April 6th, 2008, 09:23 AM
I just had to measure my as well. Last time I measured it, it was 1m (39 1/4'') and today it's 1.06m (41 3/4''). Yay!!! Too bad I can't remember when I last measured it. Here is a picture of the length:

You have georgeous Hair!

April 6th, 2008, 11:53 AM
Hijack wow Cinnamin your hair is breathtaking (so jealous) it looks like its knee already hope you will keep growing. You are definatly one of my long hair idols.

April 6th, 2008, 12:03 PM
Well, I was at about 40" till I got a "dusting" and ended up 2.5" shorter a few weeks ago. George Michael's eyes aren't what they used to be... Currently at 38" and won't be trimming for a whle!

April 6th, 2008, 12:08 PM
i just trimmed off quite a bit yesterday... im at 26.25 inches now... how sad

April 8th, 2008, 04:46 AM
I'm seriously bummed. :( I didn't grow at all since my last measurement. I've never had a month of no growth.

*sigh* I guess all the stress I've been under lately might have something to do with it. Oh well, here's to next month.

April 13th, 2008, 02:43 PM
I can't help feeling that measuring my hair to 20" is a complete fraud. :o

All of my hair is layered, so if I measure from the front hairline over my head and all the way down the longest hair in back, I get 20". However, if I measure the longest hairs on my head from scalp to ends, it's actually more like 10". (Which is okay, considering that I started at about 3" in the summer of 2006, but definitely not 20".)

Since my plan is to begin growing out the layers, leaving only a slight front fringe, eventually (in about two more years) I'll be able to get a good measurement in the prescribed way, LOL! In the meantime, I'll measure the longest part from the scalp.

So, right now I'm at 10". :rolleyes:

Lucky you :)

April 13th, 2008, 06:19 PM
Okay, I measured tonight and I am at 32.75 that means I'm almost to my goal of 33 inches. Woo Hoo! I'm not sure about how much growth is going on each month, but I suppose it is an average growth of about 1/2 an inch if I had to guess. Congratulations to everyone for their growth :cheese:

April 14th, 2008, 08:11 AM
Lucky you :)

Druid, how long is yours?
