View Full Version : 4 year hair anniversary

Progress pics - I have been trimming in the last year, so there wasn't as much length added this year. Up to the 2008 pic there were no trims.

Whoa, the growth spurt between 2006-07 made my eyes pop! Congratulations on your anniversary! :)

June 18th, 2009, 01:14 PM
That is so inspiring! You have such a lovely shade of blonde. My favourite pics are from 07 to 08 because I am roughly at the length you were in 07 so I am looking forward to my hair growing as much as yours did in a year. I can only hope.

Your hair looks beautiful! So inspiring! Thanks for sharing. :flower:

June 18th, 2009, 01:19 PM
That's some amazing progress, especially notable given your starting, err, lack of length. Hehe. Congrats on four years! Now on to the next four! :flowers:

... If you don't mind me asking, what was reason behind shaving your head?

June 18th, 2009, 03:55 PM
What wonderful progress you have made and your hair is stunning.

June 18th, 2009, 06:19 PM
Wow! Gorgeous, and it's gotten so long! The trimming really changed how it looks.

Happy Hairaversary!! Amazing is the word that springs to mind :)

June 18th, 2009, 07:24 PM
Wow, thanks everyone! I can't believe I left the house for a few hours and ended up with 3 pages of compliments.

Oh how beautiful!
Your hair looks thicker in the 2009 picture.
And I love your sweater.

It looks thicker because I trimmed off the thin ends.
If you mean the sweater in the 2009 picture, thank you, its one I knitted, better pic here (http://www.flickr.com/photos/22479883@N05/3010486356/).

.. If you don't mind me asking, what was reason behind shaving your head?

I had long hair before that for most of my life (well not as long as it is now) and I was sick of it and wanted to try super short. In retrospect, one of the things that annoyed me was how it always stuck to my face with static in the winter. I know now that it was probably super dry, COing has cured that.

There wasn't really a good reason, just wanted to try shaving my head once in my life I guess.

June 18th, 2009, 07:31 PM
Wonderful pics!

I wish I would have had the nerve to shave my head before I decided to grow my hair out this "last" time! WOW! How cool! I had a flat top and was buzzed pretty good back in the new wave era but not completely bald. Too late now, knock on wood.

Simply gorgeous.

June 20th, 2009, 02:38 AM
Yay, Kyamo! If looks could kill... your progress rate would be drop dead gorgeous :D

Your hair definitely is beautiful, the color, the texture and all that. But tell me, you had no trims at all? And how on earth did you protect your ends from damage? :bigeyes: Just let me know your secret please, so i can start following your routine from this moment on...

June 20th, 2009, 03:09 AM
Good Lord, your hair is gorgeous! The thickness you have now is certainly a huge difference from a year ago!

I viewed your flickr photos and must say I'm jealous of your knitting expertise!
I just learned how to knit and don't know if I'll ever find myself knitting stunning creations such as yours.

June 20th, 2009, 04:29 AM
Whoops, I'm rather late to this thread.

Congrats, Kyamo! Your hair looks great.

June 21st, 2009, 12:24 PM

No trims at all from June 2005 (bald) to Mar 2008. I trimmed off 16 cm between Mar 2008 and the present. I didn't really do anything special to protect the ends, but I did wear my hair up a lot through that time, because without trims it looked awkward down at a lot of lengths. However, a big part of the reason I started trimming was because of damage on the ends, so obviously it was occurring, of course. My routine can be seen on my profile ("About Me" tab).

Thudworthy! Your hair looks wonderful. And I just loved that wonderfully photoshopped first photo. :D Tee hee.

June 21st, 2009, 03:54 PM

June 21st, 2009, 04:37 PM
Your hair definitely looks thicker in the 2009! Looks beautiful!

June 21st, 2009, 04:47 PM
Impressive progress! Congrats.

June 21st, 2009, 09:11 PM
Amazing! I love seeing how your hair has progressed in length. It's just beautiful!

June 21st, 2009, 09:13 PM
Your hair is STUNNING! Basically, what I aspire to. Wow.

June 21st, 2009, 09:35 PM

What great progress and the trims really made it look great too! :)

June 22nd, 2009, 06:21 AM
Your hair does look thicker. I haven't read through the entire thread but what do you use on your hair? I've been rethinking my Pantene since I've seen so many negative stuff on it. I may just alternate between Pantene and a no cone. Great growth!!!

June 22nd, 2009, 09:01 AM
absoutly beautiful hair

June 22nd, 2009, 09:13 AM
Your growth is inspirational for shorties like me!

I can only hope that my hair is as beautiful as yours four years down the road! :)

June 24th, 2009, 04:01 PM
Your hair is gorgeous! And a big inspiration to me because I started at totally bald too--last October. I'm a knitter and I'm dying to know the pattern of your sweater--I looked on Ravelry but can't find it! Is it an original? It's amazing too.:)

June 24th, 2009, 06:35 PM
Wow, your hair is amazing!
