Hey, my first time starting this thread! :cheese:

I'm at 54" after trimming 2.5-3" yesterday.

March 31st, 2009, 11:11 PM
Just a bit past 25 inches, and thats after a small trim this month!!
edit: my hair grew an inch this month:cheese:

March 31st, 2009, 11:29 PM
I'm at 40" after having to cut about 9" of very thinned out split ends. I thought it was just 6" but I just measured the lock it made and the longest hair was 9.5" long and the shortest was about 1" long. :(

I had to cut it because the thinning was making it hard to get the ends into the bun without crimping them. I was also long over due for a trim anyways, so I guess it was for the best. :o

April 1st, 2009, 12:38 AM
27.5. Im back at my february length, before I made my 2cm trim. Stalled in february, growing again!

April 1st, 2009, 01:18 AM
I measured yesterday, and I got 29,5 :D The damn hair grows slowly, but grow it does! Pity it needs trimming.

April 1st, 2009, 01:58 AM
I happened to measure in the morning. Its 46 3/4 inch now, which is 3/4 inch new growth for March.

I will check back in after my wash/dry :) (last month I was at 24" I have not checked since)

April 1st, 2009, 03:31 AM
I measured a few days ago for the first time in about a year :rolleyes: 29" now. About 2 months ago I had it cut about 15 cm...

April 1st, 2009, 03:33 AM
Waist, yay! Not sure of inches, haven't measured in a while.

Definitely past classic now!

Not by more than an inch or two though...it's about 44.5 inches.

I had a couple of the most straggly inches trimmed off (by my delightful SO) in the first week of February to neaten it up for a big performance when I was going to wearing it down. So it's almost as long now as it was then. (Sigh, I hate trims - although it looks and feels so much nicer now)

April 1st, 2009, 03:47 AM
A good 38 inches.

April 1st, 2009, 04:01 AM
hair still damp from washing this morning, but the thingy says 26 inches.

April 1st, 2009, 04:17 AM
33 3/4" - up 3/4 inches. This is the first time ever that I got that much growth with a fairytaleing hemline! I have been mostly fingercombing last month, and I get significantly less splits. Perhaps that is why I gained so much length.

April 1st, 2009, 04:30 AM
I'm up 2cm from I think 2 months ago. So I am now at 82cm length, according to my converter that means I'm at 32.283465 inches.

April 1st, 2009, 04:31 AM
My hair grew the usual half an inch. :D I'm at 21.5 now!

April 1st, 2009, 05:44 AM
Wow time for a measure-in all ready?! I came in at 47 cm (+/-18 in), that's 1.5 cm growth, a good 1/2 inch, maybe even a slight bit more. I thought I would be at a solid collar bone length, but my ends still don't quite touch my collar bone yet. Hopefully by the end of this month I'll have reached my first goal.

April 1st, 2009, 07:36 AM
First time joining one of these threads! lol.

21.5" so.. half an inch since December (with a few self trims)

April 1st, 2009, 07:51 AM
I'm at 21" - breaking a very long stall (over a year) with a one-inch growth last month!!!!! My stall was due to anemia, which is now corrected.

April 1st, 2009, 07:58 AM
I measure in at 32"

ETA: I'm still at BSL but I'm very tall so it takes more length to progress down my body.

April 1st, 2009, 08:07 AM
I've been 18" for a couple of weeks now, so I guess the MSM I'm taking is tapering off in effectiveness or I'm due for a big burst this month. I'll take the latter :gabigrin:

46.5" - up half an inch on last month so right on track! :cheese:

April 1st, 2009, 08:17 AM
I'm at 25".

April 1st, 2009, 08:18 AM
I've got a few hairs just past 38", as of last night. Haven't measured in a few months, but it's definitely still growing!

April 1st, 2009, 08:23 AM
this is my first measure-in. I measured it twice. The first time I got 22" and the second time I got 22.5" so somewhere in there. My goal is waist or tailbone length, and we'll see from there :)

April 1st, 2009, 08:29 AM
I'm a tiny bit past 42", but I'm maintaining to gain some thickness. So this will be the last measure-in thread I'll probably post in for awhile, until I decide to start letting it grow again. :)

It looks as though a lot of people came out of a stall this month! Awesome! :cheese:

April 1st, 2009, 09:04 AM
I'm at 34.7 inches/88,2 cm, up 1.2 inches/3 cm since I last measured two months ago. :D

April 1st, 2009, 01:08 PM
Measuring in at 35.5". Only 1/2" since last month. Sigh.

April 1st, 2009, 01:36 PM
37 inches! Half an inch up from last month. Hoping to reach 40 before trimming.

April 1st, 2009, 01:40 PM
29 inches after a trim. The alarming thing is I hardly lost any hair. The ends were really thin. After about an inch then it got thicker to cut following Feye's method. So I stopped. It looks good now and healthy. So I guess I will stop here and concentrate on conditioning with henna. Something I have not tried for a long time.

April 1st, 2009, 01:48 PM
I've reached 37" :D

April 1st, 2009, 01:52 PM
I'm now at 32.5 inch :D I have grown 0.5 inch since beginning of March :cheese:

April 1st, 2009, 02:03 PM
I just measured in at 27in :)
I'm rather pleased, because that means I've grown 3in since I started conciously growing my hair in December :D

April 1st, 2009, 03:22 PM
I haven't measured in a long long time, but I have decided to start measuring again. I'm at 25.2".

April 1st, 2009, 03:56 PM
I'm not measuring in inches anymore, since I never get a strait answer! So I am just going to say, I am at tail bone, but a little longer than it was before. I will hopefully be classic by December :)

April 1st, 2009, 06:56 PM
22 inches after cut yesterday.About 1/2 inch from last month.

April 1st, 2009, 08:06 PM
Darn, I can't believe I am still at 22.5, no growth in March at all!! I have been using Mega Tek since the middle of February too, so I really expected something.

What is strange is that I have had to henna my roots, which made me think I had some growth......Hhmmm

I'm at 26 3/4 inches thats only 1/2 inch from last month and I've been having 1 inch growth for some months.I guess my gnc nourishair vitamin was working because I've been out for about a month :(

April 1st, 2009, 09:28 PM
26.5" from 25.5. So a full inch in March, down from an inch and a half in February. Still good, though!

April 1st, 2009, 09:45 PM
38 inches. wow. I can't remember when it was that i measured in at 36 inches, but it couldn't have been more than 2 months ago... I think I've officially ended my stall C: To celebrate I might just have to put up the growth pics of DBF and I... yay for 1st LHC pic after 2ish years of membership!! ahhaha.

OMG! I am amazed, I have never measured my hair from month to month...so this is a first time measurement for me.

I gained a WHOLE INCH. I told myself before I measured, that I'd be thrilled with 1/2 but I went from 24 to 25 inches. I made my hubby swear that he did it exactly the same as before and without rounding up.

:D :D :D

April 1st, 2009, 11:26 PM
29" still :rolleyes: But I have had to do a couple of dustings this week due to having alot of split ends at the moment.

April 2nd, 2009, 04:20 AM
I'm at 16 and 1/4. :( Not my typical 1/2 inch. Oh well....at least it's growing.

April 2nd, 2009, 04:58 AM
62cm which is about 24,41" simce like my hair is growing a steady 0,75-0,8" a month

April 2nd, 2009, 08:23 AM
15.5 as of last night. I still have a long way to go, but at least I know my starting point this time, haha! :)

April 2nd, 2009, 11:29 AM
I was measuring last night while it was wet, and the longest hairs were around 24.5", but since a recent thread seems to favor dry measurements, I measured this morning and got 24". A couple of hairs were at 24.25", but whatever :) Most importantly, I checked and....

I JUST HIT BSL!!! Yeeehaw! Some hairs hit mid-bsl when pulled straight, but with my funky waving ends, it's totally hitting the top of my bra strap with no aid now. YAY! :D:D:D

April 2nd, 2009, 02:06 PM
Well, I guess I might as well post here:

51.5" for April (somewhere between 51.25" and 52.0"...bit of oil that didn't get washed out making measures inconsistent), which is down 0.25" from March (which was 51.75"). So it actually got a tad shorter. Hair has been shedding the last week or so, which was probably the culprit. :lol:

April 2nd, 2009, 02:17 PM
last month cut from 27' to 26" and now I am back to 27" :cheese:

April 2nd, 2009, 02:43 PM
I'm at 27.5" pulled straight, gaining 1/2" since March. Still at MBL curly though. :undecided

April 2nd, 2009, 04:08 PM
36.25, up 1/4 of an inch since last month.

Stress, sleeplessness and rotten diet definitely are playing roles in the slow growth.

April 2nd, 2009, 04:40 PM
somewhere between 29" and 30" I think my hair only grew 1/2" this month :(

April 2nd, 2009, 04:55 PM
I'm at 32.5 inches which is an increase of 1/2". Also, I've reached waist!!! Unfortunately, I do have to get a trim.

April 2nd, 2009, 05:04 PM
I am needing a trim but am safely in the 39" mark. I'm hoping to hold out and then maintain a bit at classic (~43-45"), but am not sure yet. Hoping to reach 40" by summer! :p

April 2nd, 2009, 06:07 PM
22.25. :) That's 3/4" this past month. I've been getting 1/2" a month, so this is good!

April 2nd, 2009, 10:06 PM
I tried measuring myself (which is becoming more difficult), and it looks like 40.5"

April 2nd, 2009, 10:25 PM
I am back to 33 Yea! :happydance: Growing back to hip and onto classic and beyond!:cheese:

April 2nd, 2009, 10:53 PM
As of today, 33 andatinybit inches!

April 2nd, 2009, 11:24 PM
23 inches on the line. last time i measured it was in Jan. after my cut. so hair has grown about 1 inch in almost 3 months. :cheese: doing the ancient grow hair grow dance right now. hope it helps and makes it grow faster.

April 2nd, 2009, 11:53 PM
*blink* Holy Moo!

28 inches!

April 3rd, 2009, 01:01 AM
Curly measurement 24.5-25", pulled straight 28.75".
I did a microtrim in March, but still was able to gain half an inch.

<<<<< Girlcat goes back to her cave>>>>

April 3rd, 2009, 01:20 AM
25.5" after a 1/4" trim, which means I got 3/4" of growth this month. Woo!

April 3rd, 2009, 08:11 AM
I had a heck of a time getting a good measure this month. I'm going to settle on calling it 37".

April 3rd, 2009, 10:56 AM
Measured 15" (LHC way) and 3" if measuring only the layers.... :(

April 3rd, 2009, 11:37 AM
16 1/2 inches, it only grew 1/4 inch but at least it did grow.

April 3rd, 2009, 08:08 PM
46 inches, and DH says the racers are at 47! :cheese: So I'm calling it 46 - maybe I'll be at my goal of mid-thigh next month. :disco:

A good solid half inch gained in March, perhaps a little more. :)

April 3rd, 2009, 11:14 PM
I measured today and I'm at 36" and a centimeter!:)

April 4th, 2009, 12:24 AM
Sad to say I lost 2 inches due to trim today so I am back to 26 inches. I feel I will not get beyond my waist at this rate, arrrggghhhhh.

April 4th, 2009, 04:32 AM
Just shy of 22", apparently. It's stopped growing! Stupid spring, I thought it was meant to speed up...?

April 4th, 2009, 05:51 AM
Thanks for coming out Girlcat!!! It's good to see you. Happy caving!

April 4th, 2009, 08:01 AM
Did a quick measure, 29" I think. I'll redo it later to make certain.

April 4th, 2009, 09:34 AM
Hovering I think around 38.75..thank goodness for those few long scragglies..hah. Will be a miracle when I get to a solid 39"!

April 4th, 2009, 12:19 PM
47.5 inches...
Up one and half inches from Feb 1st.
I think I really really need to trim.

April 4th, 2009, 12:25 PM
18.5 inches (+ 0.4).

April 4th, 2009, 12:35 PM
I'm at 38 inches this month, so I'm quite happy that my hair is steadily growing back :agree:

April 4th, 2009, 12:48 PM
24.5" I am just getting into measuring again after a large trim last month......

April 4th, 2009, 04:21 PM
I can't wait to measure! I started my growing adventure on January 8th, so I don't want to measure until around the same time this month. Maybe the 7th, 6th in May, etc... until I can just measure the first of the month. It would have been nice if I thought of that first :eek:

April 4th, 2009, 04:23 PM
37" here...working its way past my tailbone. :)

April 5th, 2009, 05:42 AM
This month - 24.75. (Horray :) the stall is over!)

April 6th, 2009, 01:06 PM
I trimmed about 4" a few weeks ago. I'm at 25" now, with happy, healthy ends.

I hope to be back at 29-30" by Christmas.

April 6th, 2009, 01:59 PM
24.25, stress is a real hair killer.

April 6th, 2009, 03:21 PM
Barely 21 1/2". :( That's only 1/4", but hey, at least it's growing! I think it's just stress.

April 7th, 2009, 12:09 AM
I'm at 31" :)

(might be more though since I measured about a week or two ago!)

April 7th, 2009, 12:15 AM
25 1/4" !! Yay!!!

April 7th, 2009, 12:32 AM
