Alright, I didn't see it so I am calling it! It's Sep 1 now on the west coast of the US, so here is the thread!

Apparently my hair is 40 inches, or at least 15 hairs are and the rest are about 39. So says the fiancÚ who measured. :D That brings me up about an inch from last month. Woot! :cheese:

How are you all doing?

Wow Little Orca - an inch this month, big congrats! It must be all the hair flipping in the other thread :p

I should have said that I've also grown an inch this month!! My reason is that I join LHC and it was so inspired that it had to grow :D

38". Typical 1/2" this month. :)

Starting over at 17.3. Going to start measuring my hair again.

28"! That would seem like crazy growth (my 26" measurement was taken around a month ago), but it's more likely that I didn't measure all that accurately last time, since I did it myself. My boyfriend has now long since got used to my newfound obsession with hair, and measures it for me.

AmandaPanda

38" - .5" growth

30 -about 0,8 growth. Didn`t grow much last month, so this makes up for that.

18" I'm still growing at the average 1/2" per month. I can't complain!! :)

35" (+0.5"), and just 0.5" away from where I was before I didn't my major 2" trim. :D

30.5", which is up 0.5 from last month.

I gained 5/8 of an inch (for most of my hair, about a third of my hair grew longer than that, but I am not counting that). Now I am at 45 inches! Now I am only one inch away from the longest my hair has ever been, but this time my ends are not damaged. :)

Lemur_Catta
September 1st, 2009, 05:55 AM
I measured it yesterday in the evening :D It was 72 cm, which is 28.35 inches :D

Little_Bird
September 1st, 2009, 06:18 AM
Last month I was at 39.37 (100 cm) and this month I was suposed to trim but I think I'm not going to do that...
My sister measured 101 and 101,5 cm (101,5 would be half an inch growth)

I'm keeping the 101, next month will se. So this brings be up to 39.76... Come on 40 here we go!!

By the way, my sister declared my hair has too long today... And glanced at me with a "mine feels too long too"... God...

drquartz1970
September 1st, 2009, 06:25 AM
My hair grows at a regular 1.25cm a month regardless of summer or winter. The longest hair strands is now at 28cm or around 11 inches.

Savvyhorsez
September 1st, 2009, 06:28 AM
The tips I think are reaching around 50in which is the typical slow growing of hair. I wish it would grow longer faster!:)

28 inches at the longest point.

I had about 1.5 inches cut off and layers put in.... Back to growing (I need layers or my hair looks flat)

ChrissieM
September 1st, 2009, 11:01 AM
My longest hairs are at 28.75 this month, so I got a half-inch last month. Onwards....I'd love to be over 30 in by Christmas...I think I will....

rogue_psyche
September 1st, 2009, 11:52 AM
27.5"! Or at least my longest hairs are. I'm beginning to taper slightly in the last half-inch though. :shrug: That's an inch up from last month.

Samitra
September 1st, 2009, 11:54 AM
54 cm/ 21.26 inches this month. My usual 1 cm/0.4 inches. :D

54" today. When I measured it 2-3 months ago it was 53". 6" to my goal!

Elphie
September 1st, 2009, 03:30 PM
27 inches, up a half inch from last month. Perhaps a smidge more, got a few different readings.

Reptilia
September 1st, 2009, 03:55 PM
I measured two days ago at 26.25 inches. Pretty good! I was 26 beginning of August and then trimmed off 1/2 an inch about a week later. Can't complain! :D

Laylah
September 1st, 2009, 04:03 PM
30 inches - yaaay! that's 1.5 inches in two months. :D

KarpatiiSiv

35.25 inches that up by just over 1" since last measured on 30 July.

Quixii
September 1st, 2009, 05:04 PM
According to my measuring, I was at 34 last night! Which is about 39 for the regular thing. That's over two inches longer from the last time I measured, in July! :D

rach
September 1st, 2009, 05:05 PM
still haven't found my flexy tape measure :(
it's behaving longer ?

butterflycayton
September 1st, 2009, 05:12 PM
I think I measured the same in the pics. First one I took on 8-14 at 19 inches. I measured this morning at 20 inches!:cheese: The only differance is I oiled last night, and last month it was just wet.

Some very good growth going on!

St.Germain
September 1st, 2009, 06:55 PM
A week or so ago, I was at 46, which is a good two inches since I started in June. Woot! Also, I measured my boyfriend's hair at about 20", which is 4-5" longer than it was six months ago. I'm trying to get him to join the LHC. He is not cooperating.

September 1st, 2009, 07:17 PM
Seem to be entering my measure-in report every 2 months or so now...yesterday measured and happy to report - yay!..now at 40" (my very longest hairs that is)..never thought I would get here!

Rivanariko
September 1st, 2009, 07:29 PM
29 after an inch trim at the beginning of the month, so I gained back the inch that I trimmed, but with a better and healthier hemline. :)

lhangel9
September 1st, 2009, 07:32 PM
August 09 - 22"
Sep 1 09 - 23"

(As soon as I get some real growth I would like to post my pic!)

You and me both.:( I know my hair grew 1" this past month, but it was in a 7 month stall and didn't seem to grow at all for that time. I was so bummed out:( I hope to increase my growth soon so that I can be in the league with the super long haired ladies on here:cheese:

EtherealOde
September 1st, 2009, 07:38 PM
22 inches. I gained a whole inch this month!!! :blueeek:

I'm only at 19". That's a piddly 1/4 inch for me. Boo Hoo.

September 1st, 2009, 07:43 PM
22 inches pulled straight. I couldn't have grown an inch in a month. Now it's gonna bug me until next month.

31"! It was 30" last month

missfortune9335
September 1st, 2009, 07:47 PM
18.5" it was 18 at the beginning of August and around 18.25 a little after I started here so about 1/2 inch for the month nothing to write home about but I'm not complaining either!

Oh you're so lucky! I wish I got an inch in a month but nope, just my half an inch as usual which brings me to 26 inches. Oh well at least it's going...slowly but still going

Wanderer09

31 inches for me, after not measuring for several months.

I was told to toss it as well, but I am tired of my growth progress looking like this:

Feb: Tailbone
Mar: Tailbone
Apr: Tailbone
May: Tailbone
Jun: Tailbone
Jul: Tailbone
Aug: Tailbone
Sep: Tailbone

So the inches let me know I am progressing. :)

Stephichan
September 1st, 2009, 11:49 PM
I measured in at around 23", which is about an inch longer than last month :D

I'm not going to hold too much on that measurement, since I have to use a really weird method to measure the length at all (I don't have a tape measure, just a string and a 6" ruler).

Melisande
September 2nd, 2009, 12:05 AM
92 cm, 36". Two months ago, I had 88 cm, that's 34.6". No complaints here ;-)

Grow my pretties, grow.....

JamieLeigh
September 2nd, 2009, 07:44 AM
I just did an inch chop a couple of weeks ago, to try to get thickness (I do a lot of this, lol...hopefully it's working! :p). So I'm probably at or near 43". I can't find my tape measure. :rolleyes: But it feels like it's pretty much where it was last month at this time, which was 43".

Xan
September 2nd, 2009, 08:07 AM
38" whoo hoo at least its still growing hoping to get into the 40's

Ina
September 2nd, 2009, 10:38 AM
I`m almost at waist now! just a couple of months more.
I don`t know how you measure in inches?

Noctifer
September 2nd, 2009, 11:40 AM
72cm (28,34 inches) so only 1 cm growth this month but then i did a 0,5-1cm trim this month

ericthegreat
September 2nd, 2009, 12:06 PM
I just updated my profile info. I have now reached a nice round 40 inches in length.

L4dybug

25" after a 2" trim. Still working on getting rid of the last of my layers.

34.5... gaining a little bit every month just like I should.

33.5! Just about 1 inch of growth! Way!

Lucky
September 3rd, 2009, 02:17 AM
I finally made it to the 20 inch mark, but my growth was the usual 1 cm (between 1/4 and 1/2 inch). I'm in that frustrating generic "shoulder" length, which seems to last forever!

halo_tightens
September 3rd, 2009, 07:45 AM
Me too, Lucky-- stuck at shoulder indefinitely, lol!

I'm still holding at around 20". Seems like I've been at around 20" for a while now...

Well, that's just fine, hair. You just take your good easy time. I can wait longer than you. :D

InTheCity
September 4th, 2009, 05:48 AM
24" again?
This is the first month I haven't had 1/2" of growth - the measure says zero growth.
I'll have to measure again but I'm a little bummed. I got spoiled of the perfect 1/2" every month since I started measuring.

Armelle
September 4th, 2009, 11:47 AM
It seems to be at 32.5. I guess I'm getting about .5" growth per month. And this is on vitamins. I'm too impatient to get back the length I had in early January!

KarenLynn
September 4th, 2009, 01:26 PM
Ina - an inch equals 2,54 cm, so just divide whatever cm measurement you get by 2,54, and you get inches.

HairyCarrie
September 4th, 2009, 01:51 PM
20.5 this month. That's a 1/4 inch gain from last month, but an inch for the past 2 months. So that's normal and I'm happy it's still growing...

Cinnamon Hair
September 4th, 2009, 10:48 PM
Tippy tips are at 56.5" this month. So 1/2" growth.

yellowchariot
September 5th, 2009, 09:51 AM
Hey I thought that I would post my results as well.
I joined TLHC on August 5th, so I figured that by posting on the 5th of every month should be accurate enough!

I'm still growing out my layers, my shortest ed layer is from the top of my head down to the base of my neck which is 13 inches. However, my overall length is 18 inches. :thumbsup:

slz
September 5th, 2009, 03:00 PM
138 cm i.e. 54.3 inches. Last time was 52.8 i.e. 134 cm, but I don't remember when it was :D . In july, I think, which would make 3/4 inches = 2 cm a month. Pretty average, I think - anyway, it means I'm not terminal yet.

dragonfrog
September 5th, 2009, 08:19 PM
36.7", up from 36" last month.

AbruptlyWanderi
September 5th, 2009, 09:19 PM
My hair is at 23.25 inches. This means that it has grown none since last month, however, though, I had a trim to even it up, so I guess it grew back! :cheese:

brownthistle
September 5th, 2009, 10:22 PM
at 37 inches now. pondering to trim it back a cm though....

Sissy
September 5th, 2009, 11:41 PM
I just self measured and got 37 1/4 inches. I usually have my husband measure for me but he's asleep. Well, that's a 1 inch growth since I last updated so I'm pleased :)

Yay Sissy!

Mine came in at 28". I've grown half an inch in about 3 weeks. That's fast for me, let's hope it keeps up!

September 7th, 2009, 02:41 PM
I'm only measuring roughly, to the nearest inch (I don't trust my measuring to be any more accurate than that) but I can firmy say I'm 27" by now and update my stats :D

mira-chan
September 7th, 2009, 03:34 PM
One more half inch growth to 47", still growing.

SheaLynne
September 9th, 2009, 06:48 AM
I am at 31.75 inches. That's from forehead hairline to tips of longest hairs stretched out...who knows if that's the "right" way, but it is the way I started out measuring, so it gives me a comparison anyway! ;)

DarthCynthia
September 9th, 2009, 06:58 AM
I haven't measured in a long time, but hubby recently gave me a trim and evened things up nicely. We need to buy a longer measuring tape since my hair is now longer than the one we have. He measured my hair to be about 61 inches.

Arkady
September 9th, 2009, 07:01 AM
Mine's currently at 27". i've never really tried measuring it on a month-to-month basis, so it will be interesting to check in another month and see how much it's grown. :)

Merewen
September 9th, 2009, 09:50 AM
My hemline was getting out of whack so I trimmed, which put me at around 25 1/2 inches. So my hair is not really any longer than when I joined in May. But it is longer (not sure by how much) than after my last trim at a hairdresser. So now I can just let it grow for a while.

Sissy
September 12th, 2009, 01:05 PM

So I forgot to have DBF measure on the 1st... he measured last night. In 40 days I only gained 1/4". Why? I haven't been using the Mega-Tek or taking vitamins for the last month. DUH!!!!!!

Stepping back up to the plate... at 38 1/4"

Between September 13-20, my hair just got to Tailbone, it was hip length on my current information, so I actually put it into Tailbone since I just hit tailbone! So i'm off now to classic! Even though I don't measure, I measure by my body when looking at the mirror, I use another mirror from front to back so I can see where it hits! So last month was about between 1 inch 1/2 above tailbone, now it is already tailbone! so it grew between 1 1/2 on my measuring tape, that's almost 2 inches!

27.5'' and my the thickness is moving down my hair at last.
hormone shed after my youngest started at chin length in march and has now made it down to shoulder, my buns are becoming much thicker now :cheese: may need to check pony tail diameter again to see if i need to change my i's
