I realize this is 3 days early but oh well. Better early than late. Post your July measurement here after July 1.

June 28th, 2009, 06:42 PM
I will be first...I measured yesterday while i had it straightened and got 18" I'm thrilled!!! I was 17 at the begining of June... im finally back to where i was when i cut it last February.....so im gonna go by that and call it my July measure in!! ♥

June 29th, 2009, 12:08 AM
I guess I might report now too. I just chopped back to 19.2 inches to get rid of most of the layers.

July 1st, 2009, 03:38 AM
I measured yesterday : 30 inches ^^ That is 2 cm more than last month :D

July 1st, 2009, 04:48 AM
I gained half an inch for the month. I was at 23" and had a 2" trim to get rid of old dye and scraggly ends. I'm at 21" now!

July 1st, 2009, 04:53 AM

Only an inch to go to the nice round 30 :D

July 1st, 2009, 05:27 AM
I'm at 17. Typical 1/2 growth for the month. Slowly inching my way back......

July 1st, 2009, 05:38 AM
I was 19 inch last month and i'm now 19.5 inch :D

July 1st, 2009, 06:41 AM
A good 39 nches. Happy with the ends.

July 1st, 2009, 07:36 AM
I measured half an inch longer. Hope to hit 30 inches next month!

July 1st, 2009, 08:04 AM
Trimmed half an inch, gained one inch! Up half an inch to 29.

July 1st, 2009, 08:22 AM
27". I trimmed 2 inches a couple of weeks ago and the ends are looking thick and healthy. :)

July 1st, 2009, 08:26 AM
37"! Hoorah! :cheese:

July 1st, 2009, 08:50 AM
Thanks for the nudge. I've been wanting to measure again for a few days. I'm now at 32".

July 1st, 2009, 09:24 AM
Still 34 1/4" - I trimmed all the growth during June.

July 1st, 2009, 09:26 AM
28" as of a few days ago. My hair is finally growing again at 1" per month. I love summer :D

July 1st, 2009, 10:06 AM
I actually lost a half inch. I guess June's measurement was a false measurement. I'm sitting right at 18".

July 1st, 2009, 10:12 AM
25". The last time I measured was the end of March. Since then I had a half inch trim but have still gained 1.5 inches. *yay*

July 1st, 2009, 10:20 AM
My hair's now 19.7 inches (50 cm). It grew 4.3 inches (11 cm) since I started growing and I have 4.7 more inches (12 cm) to go. I'm about halfway towards my first goal (BSL)!

July 1st, 2009, 10:36 AM
July 1, 2009:

me = 27 inches

DD13 = 22.5 inches. She has officially decided to grow her hair long and is hoping for waist by the time she starts 9th grade. :cheese:

July 1st, 2009, 10:58 AM
My DD thanks you redneckprincess! She will be in the 8th grade and they don't start high school til the 10th here, so yeah - two years. Growing up way too fast if you ask me! What grade will your daughter be in?

July 1st, 2009, 10:59 AM
22 inches (up .5 from last month) - but just barely :D

July 1st, 2009, 12:33 PM
55.75:) .25 to reach my goal.

July 1st, 2009, 05:39 PM
My hair measures 23" curly, and 27" stretched. Still in recovery from my 3" chop in May.

July 1st, 2009, 07:04 PM
25" for me. I finally hit the top of my bra strap today when I looked in the mirror! I can't tell you how excited that made me! WOOOOOT! :D

July 1st, 2009, 08:54 PM
I'm at 26, but for me, that's a tiny bit past the lower part of my bra strap.

July 1st, 2009, 09:08 PM
29" I had a bit of a trim, so no growth :(

July 1st, 2009, 10:41 PM
I'm at 35 3/8" (up 3/8" since last month). Almost tailbone!

July 1st, 2009, 11:37 PM
52 3/4 inches. Which is weird, because when I measured it this time last year it was 52, but it looks several inches longer than it did then. Maybe I measured it differently last time or something. :shrug:

July 1st, 2009, 11:59 PM
I just straightened mine for a special event and had the bright idea to measure. I'm sitting at 23 inches. I don't know how much growth I've had because I measured it curly last time and didn't pull it straight. It was 21.5 inches curly in May.

Maybe 55.5" It's somewhere between 55" and 55.5" but if you count the very tips they look 55.5" So up .5" from last month.

July 2nd, 2009, 01:27 AM
19.5 inches... my usual 1 cm of growth. I'll be happy to get over 20 inches in the coming months.

July 2nd, 2009, 06:20 AM
34" now. Was 33" in the beginning of may.. so I guess that puts me at .5" per month or so.

July 2nd, 2009, 06:27 AM
10inches!!! hehe it grew a inch since my trim last month :)

July 2nd, 2009, 07:28 AM
20 3/4, up 3/4 inch from Last month

July 2nd, 2009, 08:00 AM

That means I didn't get ANY growth in June. :confused:
AND I've had insane shedding this whole month.
I'm hoping its just the end of the grow cycle and it'll start up again this month.

July 2nd, 2009, 08:52 AM
92,7 cm/36.5 inches, up 1,5 cm/0.6 inches from last month.

July 2nd, 2009, 10:43 AM
Just measured today: 26.5 inches :D

July 2nd, 2009, 10:57 AM
69 CM thats about 27" so the usual growth

July 2nd, 2009, 01:23 PM
I am at 21.5, which puts me up 1/4 inch. Come on APL.........

July 2nd, 2009, 01:40 PM
I'm at 23", up half an inch in June. It's weird, though, because all of my growth happened in the first two weeks of the month.

July 2nd, 2009, 07:47 PM
I'm at 42 5/8". I've got a trim coming up in a couple of weeks, though, which will probably put me back around 42 1/4" or so.

July 2nd, 2009, 09:36 PM
37 1/2", up 1/2"! That's two months in a row now I've had 1/2" of growth compared to 1/4" growth a month in January through May!

I think the Mega-Tek is doing something ;)

5 1/2" to classic!

July 2nd, 2009, 09:56 PM
I actually had my hair measured yesterday so can post in this thread for a change. :cheese:

After a 1" trim, my hair is at 35", between waist and tailbone. :)

July 2nd, 2009, 10:04 PM
Last month I was at 19.5 inches, this month I'm at 20 inches!!:D

Oh, and dare I say I am barely brushing APL!!

July 2nd, 2009, 10:11 PM
26.5" !!! Half an inch exactly since last month. :D

July 2nd, 2009, 11:11 PM
So I just measured (marking my one month anniversary here! :D) and I'm a little puzzled as to what to mark it as. My longest "clump" (you could say) is actually around 33". =o But the length of most of my hair is still around 30.5". >.<
I don't remember where I measured it last time.
Oh, and I always measure from the top of my head, not from the front of my head or whatever.

July 3rd, 2009, 05:55 AM
29.5", marking half an inch growth from last month. Should be at waist by next month!

July 3rd, 2009, 07:15 AM
31.25", which is about half an inch since last month. :)

July 3rd, 2009, 10:54 AM
Hmm, maybe 52", which would be up 0.25".

I should say I'm getting anything from 51.75" to 52.25", but most are either 52" or 52.25", so...52". Pretty good when a couple of weeks ago I got 51"...and I had checked and checked. Oh, well, nice to finally get to 52" after first getting to 51" last October. :oops:

July 3rd, 2009, 11:02 AM
Tapers to 33". Wish it was all that long, but it's a start. :)

July 3rd, 2009, 11:48 AM
I measure from my crown and get 18 inches. Do we go by hairline? That would make 24 inches.

That is at the longest point of course, I have layers. :o

July 3rd, 2009, 12:31 PM
hubby just got around to measuring my hair and it's now at 28 3/4

July 3rd, 2009, 10:36 PM
My last measurement was 34 inches back in May, now I am at 36 inches. :D And that is after dusting my ends too! :) I am happy, even if my hair is not where I want it to be still. :D

July 3rd, 2009, 11:17 PM
35.5 inches - just shy of tailbone! (actually, it's a few inches to go for tailbone curly, aaaalmost there with post-braiding wavy, and there with a bit to spare when it's soaking wet. But I'll take what I can get)

July 4th, 2009, 05:09 AM
Back up to 33" (waist length) after my recent trim. I guess I should change my stats now.

July 4th, 2009, 11:35 AM
34" and counting....

July 4th, 2009, 01:04 PM
My longest hairs measure at a little over 7 inches. Sooo, that's not measuring the LHC way but I'm not going to measure like that til my hair is at shoulder

July 4th, 2009, 01:11 PM
This month is my first real measurement, I'm at 27.5 in, which is just below the bottom of my bra strap. I tried to measure when I first joined LHC a little over a month ago, but I didn't have a good tape measure so it wasn't accurate. I've trimmed about 1/2 inch off my bangs this past month, so hopefully the rest of my hair is growing that fast as well.

July 4th, 2009, 03:09 PM
134 cm which is 52.8 inches. So it grows, even if it doesn't seem to :D

July 5th, 2009, 01:48 PM
Measured today. . .from hairline at forehead to tips slightly tugged to uncurl: 39 inches.

Last time I measured, ur my husband measured, it was 38. . .think this was just three weeks ago or so.

Wow, really looks like my hair wants to be cut in a v. . .but I think it's just that the ends are still slightly damp. They fluff up. lol


July 5th, 2009, 01:59 PM
Hair stopped growing in the heat...
From 33 " last month, to 33.2.

Or maybe you're about to hit terminal?:(

July 5th, 2009, 02:33 PM
Or maybe you're about to hit terminal?:(
No I don't think that (I don't hope anyway).
I have had 50 inches before, and then it kept growing still in the same rate as usual.

My hair hasn't been very happy in the hot weather. Shed more too.
Thank god the rain has come, and temperature is down 30 %.

July 6th, 2009, 06:16 AM
23.5"... exactly 3 inches in the 6 months I've been on LHC. :D

To think, I used to "swear" my hair grew more slowly than everyone else's.

July 6th, 2009, 09:10 AM
26 1/2 stretched. So an inch and a half in the last 2 months, even with a small trim. YAY!

July 6th, 2009, 12:09 PM
25 inches for July, up 1/2 an inch.

July 6th, 2009, 05:08 PM
Up to 16" for me, which seems so short compared to everyone else, but I got 1" in growth this month, up from my usual .5"/month, so maybe taking vitamins consistently works or maybe it's just wishful thinking.

July 7th, 2009, 12:20 AM
Measured for the 1st time in months. I'm at 40.5 inches. I did 2 braids for a night out and the braids are now long enough to sit on.

July 7th, 2009, 08:49 AM
I measured on July 1st (but only posted now because I was on vacation) and my hair was at 44 inches. That's up 0.75 inches from last month. :)

July 12th, 2009, 09:13 PM
I'm at 25 3/16" this month!

June '09 - 24 7/8"
May '09: --no measurement--
April '09: 24 1/4"
March '09: 23 3/4"
February '09: 23 3/16"
January '09: 22 3/8"
December: 22"
November: 21"
October: 20 3/16"
September: 19 7/8"
August: 18"
July: 17.5"

July 12th, 2009, 10:07 PM
I'm right around 37.5, keeping steady with my 1/2" month. At this rate I'll be at tailbone in September! :)
