View Full Version : August 09' Measure In

August 1st, 2009, 08:17 AM
Didn't see one posted so I'm starting! :D

I am 26" and oh so closer to my goal I set when I got here nearly a year ago! :cheese:

August 1st, 2009, 08:55 AM
30"! Which according to previous measurements should be waist on me . . . but it doesn't feel like it. I'll have to take a pic later to be sure.

August 1st, 2009, 09:00 AM
26.5, my usual half inch of growth. Moving right along...

August 1st, 2009, 09:02 AM
I feel comfortable saying 34.5" today..... half an inch or so a month, keep it coming.

August 1st, 2009, 09:30 AM
I'm at 28.25, officially. That's 3/4 inch this month! If only this summer growth rate would be consistent....

August 1st, 2009, 09:40 AM
I got 18 3/4 inches. I'm up a quarter inch. Dh says that he's not been measuring to the very ends of my hair. Just to the bulk of my hair. Does that make sense? So, we've been measuring wrong for months now. Hopefully, we'll get it right next month. Anyway, I'm happy with the 1/4 inch since I haven't been taking my vitamins everyday. Sorry this post has been so long.

August 1st, 2009, 09:48 AM
39.5 inches and the longest its been.

August 1st, 2009, 09:59 AM
My usual 2 centimeters this months so up to 71cm or around 27,9 inches

August 1st, 2009, 12:05 PM
I am at 22 inches, gaining a 1/2 inch this past month(usually I get only a 1/4 inch)!!!

August 1st, 2009, 12:07 PM
I think I am at 38 inches, 40 if I stretch out my waves. :)

August 1st, 2009, 12:18 PM
Around 75 cm or 29,5 inches - might be 73 or 28,7 inches but I prefer to believe the 75 ;) It should be mathematically correct too, given my recent trims and what they cut. Not the longest it's been, but at its longest as somewhat even!

Aiming for waist, which on me seems to require around 15 cm more. Stupid long back! :D

August 1st, 2009, 01:57 PM
Im at 73 cm, or around 29".. not far to go untill I reach 30":p that will somehow feel good. Then its just 5" and IŽll be at my goal:).

August 1st, 2009, 02:21 PM
21.5 would have been 22 but i gave myself a little trim. it needed it i hadn't trimmed since november

I'm at 39.5 inches which is on target for me :agree: I wish I wasn't so impatient lol :lol:

August 1st, 2009, 03:29 PM
I'm still trying to figure out if I'm measuring correctly...stretching my hair out, it comes to 30.5 inches, which is longer than when I measured when I found this group last month, but I did a 1/4 inch self-trim, too, so not bad!

I'm treating my hair a lot more gently these days!

August 1st, 2009, 03:29 PM
I am at 23.25 inches, which is probably longer then it has ever been before. :D

August 1st, 2009, 04:38 PM
30 inches for me this month. This is the first time I've measured in a while!

August 1st, 2009, 04:48 PM
46.5 with a couple of hairs at 47".

August 1st, 2009, 06:36 PM
I am still at 18...WTH? I know it has grown...Im thinking my measuring is wrong....got to be, lol it feels longer

August 1st, 2009, 07:06 PM
:D My first Measure In!

21 inches, pulled straight. Unfortunately, I have layers and those haven't caught up yet:p

August 1st, 2009, 07:28 PM
40.5 inches. Three months and it only grew one inch! I'm starting to think my hair grows slow. Or maybe I'm getting close to terminal :cry::cry:

August 1st, 2009, 07:30 PM
33.5" *sigh*. I did a bit of trimming this spring, because my ends were getting thin and I'm closing in on my goal, but now I'm starting measuring curly instead of stretched, and I'm almost wishing I hadn't done the trims. I just feel like I'm so close, but I can't quite get there! And even when it does get there, the front bits are shorter than the back, and the front is what I see most of. I mean, it's all a lot better than when I was at 25", but there's a whole different way to be frustrated at every length, isn't there?

August 1st, 2009, 08:16 PM
My hair grew about 3/8 of an inch this month. I hope it will be better next month (must remember to eat enough protein...).

August 1st, 2009, 08:20 PM
26.5"! I think I gained an inch in two or three weeks. Summer spurt?

August 1st, 2009, 09:24 PM
26 inches! Woohoo!

August 1st, 2009, 11:25 PM
34.5 inches - which would be -1in from last month. I really needed that trim though! (and I got 1.5in off, so at least I grew back that half-inch)

August 1st, 2009, 11:29 PM
My hair grew 3/4in this month!

August 1st, 2009, 11:33 PM
it grew a little under 1"

August 1st, 2009, 11:38 PM
First measure in! Whoo!:cheese:32.5" this month, pulled straight. Last month was 32".

August 1st, 2009, 11:38 PM
19 and a little bit extra! I get an inch a month on average, at least until it starts getting longer and wavier.

August 1st, 2009, 11:44 PM
Yay, congratulations everyone on your new lengths :cheer:
I'm measuring in at 31'' this month, woo woo!:disco:

August 2nd, 2009, 12:00 AM
Congratulations! Your hair looks shiny, thick, and healthy! (o:

August 2nd, 2009, 12:55 AM
This is my first month to measure. I'm at 32" right now.

August 2nd, 2009, 01:34 AM
I'm at a solid 38", so I'm up yet another 1/2". Still excited, because I was getting 1/4" for the first 4 months of this year! :)

August 2nd, 2009, 02:18 AM
I'm at 28 inches, 30 inches stretched. I don't know how much it's grown this month since I just joined LHC. Last time I measured was last september, at 21 inches, and have had two inches cut in between.

August 2nd, 2009, 02:20 AM
I don't know if I measured my hair right when I first joined (which wasn't that long ago). My daughter measured it for me at 12 inches. It just dawned on me that this can't be right. If I have only 12 inches of hair why is it laying between my shoulder blades? I DO have a neck so what's up with that?
Hmmm maybe I should measure it before my measuring day to see if this is right.... I gotta take pics too so I can go back to them later to see that my hair really grows :)

August 2nd, 2009, 04:49 AM
Hmm... I'm not very good at measuring. My first try I got 18". Then I re-read the article about measuring hair and got 22". I'm not very good at estimating lengths of hair yet, so I don't know if either of those is actually close enough to accept.

August 2nd, 2009, 09:01 AM
26.6 inches :) that's 0.6 inch growth :)

August 2nd, 2009, 10:51 AM
I'm up half an inch! 25.5! This is the first time I have measured a month apart so I guess now I know my growth rate per month

August 2nd, 2009, 11:08 AM
I'm now at 17.5 - normal growth rate. Still pressing on for my first goal of 29" where I chopped before.

August 2nd, 2009, 11:26 AM
Mine is the same as it was last month.....but.....DH tidied up the hemline and got rid of a little remaining damage for me, cutting off around 2/3 of an inch, so I'm claiming 2/3 inch growth this month! :D

August 2nd, 2009, 02:33 PM
:( flexi tape measure ran away................. grrr

August 2nd, 2009, 03:03 PM
Mine is creeping closer to tailbone... I think I'm at about 38"! (I measure every couple of months or so)

August 2nd, 2009, 04:43 PM
I made it to 18.25" this month. I'm averaging about 1/2" a month, so with using Megatek + bringhraji/amla herbal oils, I stil get just an average growth rate. Still, maybe without doing that and taking the hair supplements I would get even less.

August 2nd, 2009, 07:20 PM
I measured again and got 19" whats up with that???

August 2nd, 2009, 07:21 PM
I'm at 27.5" (70cm).
Stretched I'm at 30" (76.2cm).
And then I have a couple runners at 32". :ponder:

August 2nd, 2009, 07:31 PM
27 inches!!!

August 2nd, 2009, 10:31 PM
Typical 1/2" growth. Now at 37.5". :)

August 2nd, 2009, 10:33 PM
27", so another 1/2" exactly. I really hope it keeps this up over the winter!

August 2nd, 2009, 10:38 PM
20.5! Still growing strong! :D

Cinnamon Hair
August 3rd, 2009, 01:05 AM
56" this month. Could be slightly over.

August 3rd, 2009, 01:07 AM
29", which is 1.5" of growth since I joined TLHC a month ago! I know this rate of growth probably won't last... but I'm pretty freakin' excited!

August 3rd, 2009, 09:12 AM
My hair grew the usual half an inch. I'm at 21.5 now. :cheese:

August 3rd, 2009, 09:29 AM
A little bit more..some of the longest hairs to 39.5 inches - Yay!

August 3rd, 2009, 12:06 PM
Less than half an inch -in spite of vitamines. I didn`t really believe in them, but was hoping my hair had heard of the placeboeffect.

August 3rd, 2009, 12:17 PM
33 inches!

At last trim two months ago, I was at 31.5. I'm so happy my hair grows so fast!

Probably taking off two inches in a month and a half, though. Nowadays I'm all about getting rid of these ^&*^*$ layers and old ends while still hanging out at just below waist.

August 3rd, 2009, 12:39 PM
Also my first measure in. I'm at 32 inches, past waist length and a couple inches from iliac.

August 3rd, 2009, 01:01 PM
DD15 measured for me and said 20.25". Yay! I'm claiming APL at 22" so by Thanksgiving I expect to be there.

I have a minor milestone in that I can finally reach up my back and touch my hair if I tilt ever so much. I'm proud of that little achievement... :gabigrin:


August 3rd, 2009, 02:38 PM
I finally got around to measuring. I got 94,2 cm/37.09 inches for a steady 1,5 cm/0.6 inches since last month. Still no pregnancy-induced growth spurt. Guess I shouldn't hold my breath hoping for that to happen. :lol:

I really should trim half an inch, just because the ends are getting so uneven after nine months of no trimming. Eh. Maybe next month. Or not.

August 3rd, 2009, 03:20 PM
27" a phenominal 1" since erm...........................January! but I have had an inch cut off this year!

August 3rd, 2009, 06:42 PM
OMG I'm so HAPPY HAPPY!!!! I gave in and measured my hair even thou it is before my time :) I got 13 inches!!! This is so shabby compared to some of you ladies but I am so happy my hair is growing well :)
I am adding a picture of it wet (before the curls start to form ringlets) so you all can see it :) this is huge progress for me since my hair was pixie short in 2008.


I am officially setting a hair goal for myself ... 30 inches :) which means it will probably be another year and a half (if not more) before I get there. I am sure that with your help and support I will get there :)

This is the "texture" of my hair when it is drying:


August 3rd, 2009, 07:47 PM
I am new to this and only at 15.5 now, but I am going for 36 - no cutting, just growing! I look forward to where I will be next August!

August 3rd, 2009, 08:00 PM
I'm at somewhere between 32 and 33. If I measured correctly anyway...

August 3rd, 2009, 08:22 PM
I am super happy to report in at 39-3/4". . .that's a lot since the last tiime I measured in at 38" just three weeks ago.

Since I've been measuring the last few months, I am finding that my hair is growing steadily at 1" a month. . .it's all those vitamins at work.

I've ordered my celebratory 60th Street fork to mark my 40" mini goal. My fork should be here in a week or two. . .right when I am expecting to hit the big 40 .

My next goal is 45". . .where I shall hold steady for a while to thicken up the ends.

August 4th, 2009, 07:20 PM
I'm at 36 1/4th after cutting off half an inch at the end of July.

Heavenly Locks
August 4th, 2009, 07:32 PM
27" ! :disco:


August 4th, 2009, 07:46 PM
I'm currently a little over 16", and I seek to grow my hair to about 24". I grow at about .6" per month (usually more, if I'm lucky) and I want to reach my goal by December of next year (or sooner).

August 4th, 2009, 08:37 PM
I'm moving and packed my measuring tape so I'm going to guess optimistically and say 22.5" :D

August 4th, 2009, 09:08 PM
44" this month.

August 4th, 2009, 10:13 PM
I just measured about 15 times and got 15 different results. Geesh :rolleyes: so I'm going to call it 33 3/4".

August 4th, 2009, 10:20 PM
Uh, I'm not measuring exactly but my dent is growing out!!!! (I have a dent thread on here somewhere) The thing is about 3/4 or an inch longer than about the beginning of June! Still hideous but it's hittin around my ears now (grow hair grow...I'm squeezin really hard... :) )

August 4th, 2009, 11:44 PM
:cheese:56" my goal has been reached!!:cheer:

August 4th, 2009, 11:56 PM
28.75" from 28.25" last month. I think I'm going to trim soon though. My hair has come down to .5" per month from the 1" it was doing before. Oh well. Maybe it's the summer thing. Maybe it's just breaking off because it seems pretty dry at the ends and I'm seeing splits again. The trim should help.

August 4th, 2009, 11:56 PM
:cheese:56" my goal has been reached!!:cheer:

Nice work. That was quite a goal! It looks great even at that length.

August 5th, 2009, 06:27 AM
I got 53 cm / 20.86 inches. I haven't had much growth this summer. Maybe I should start eating my supplements again...

August 5th, 2009, 11:01 AM
I'm at 43", which is about an inch or so past classic. Creeping on toward knee, hopefully managing to keep the hemline even at the same time. :D

August 5th, 2009, 09:08 PM
24.0" - the perfect half inch it's been every month that I've measured.

I'm amazed and pleased! :cheese:

August 5th, 2009, 09:34 PM
hello everyone, I thought that I might chime in on this one. I'm @12" from a previous feathered-layered cut back in February. It used to be way past my shoulders/upper-back area.

August 9th, 2009, 04:10 PM
still can't find my tape measure
erm this long

August 9th, 2009, 04:56 PM
From front to the very tip, hubby measured my length as 26" !!! :D

July '09 - 25 3/16"
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"

August 9th, 2009, 04:58 PM
26" It's not stalling anymore!

August 9th, 2009, 06:17 PM
35 inches... 10 more than the last time I measured (yeey for not measuring regularly :)) 5 more inches to my goal!

August 9th, 2009, 07:20 PM
I think that I am stuck at 25 1/2".

August 9th, 2009, 07:34 PM
Sorry no pic - 26 inches for me

August 10th, 2009, 12:05 AM
Hi! :waving: I'm new here, so this is my very first measure in: 18 inches! Woo-hoo! Yeah, it's not nearly as impressive as everyone else's, but at this point I'm just happy that my hair has finally made it back down to my shoulders. :D

August 10th, 2009, 08:07 AM
I'm so excited! I just hit 30". That was my original goal when I joined last year. Now my goal is waist which is 32". I might have to change that goal to tailbone.

August 10th, 2009, 08:18 AM
16" :D Slowly but surely I am getting there...

August 10th, 2009, 08:29 AM
28.3/4". My hair is waist when wet and about .50" to go when dry *sigh*

August 11th, 2009, 07:51 PM
I didn't even think to look for this thread when the new month rolled around! At 21" which means I gained a little over 1/2" in July. Hoping the MN will help this month, and it is hard not to measure more frequently, lol.

August 11th, 2009, 07:58 PM
30". Almost to waist length :)

August 12th, 2009, 08:39 AM
I'm 20"/past APL.
I'm like 10" (about a year and a few months) away from my goal of 30", though I wouldn't mind reaching 26" and keeping it there for a while.

August 12th, 2009, 01:41 PM
YAY! 9 inches!
May not sound like much but my longest strands were 3 when I joined in February :D

August 13th, 2009, 12:39 PM
YAY! 9 inches!
May not sound like much but my longest strands were 3 when I joined in February :D

Whoa! You've been gaining 1.5" per month since February? That's ridiculously awesome! Are you using a miracle growth aid or does your hair just grow like that automatically? :D

August 16th, 2009, 06:23 AM
Whoa! You've been gaining 1.5" per month since February? That's ridiculously awesome! Are you using a miracle growth aid or does your hair just grow like that automatically? :D

Actually I've been using everthing possible!
Monistat or the UK version of it,
scalp massage,
oiling with Ojon and coconut,
vitamins for skin, hair and nails from GNC,
eating egg white omelettes for breakfast everyday,
a high protein, low fat, no sugar diet in general,
And a new gym routine 4 times a week.

It's breaking alot still but for me thats more than double my average growth so somethings working?! :)

Also it seems to grow quite fast to about BSL then my growth slows noticeably, maybe because my hair is very thick and heavy? But until then I'll try and keep this up!

August 16th, 2009, 06:55 AM
87cm = 34 1/4 inch. That's only one centimeter in over a month. My hair usually grows faster in the summer, but not this year :shrug: Too much work and stress, I'm afraid.

August 17th, 2009, 02:52 AM
I'm up to 34 3/4 inches this month. It's been very exciting, it's finally touching the top of my underwear! I'm an inch away from my original goal.
My front framing layers that I'm growing out are at 17 1/2 inches. When I have my hair in an english braid they stay in all day now. The front bits used to slide out of my braid. So happy.

Overall, a little over half an inch growth in a month.

August 19th, 2009, 07:46 AM
13.6"...oh, why oh why did I cut my hair off in June!!!!??? *sniff sniff*

August 19th, 2009, 08:16 AM
38.5" - slowly working my way past tbl.

August 19th, 2009, 08:43 AM
I realy envy your long thick hair.. , mine is layered and not thick and not even at all.. =/ I dont know if I have to cut to even it up, but if I do, my hair will get shorter *sigh*

will post a mesurement later, first mesurement for a year =P


19.7 inch (50cm), =O, its progressing =)

Edit once more, i missunderstood bsl >< soo, mine is past shoulders, going for APL.. XD

November 23rd, 2009, 12:36 AM
wow, i love your hair!
