Hi-ho, manderly here, finally feeling like uploading and posting my most recent hair photos for your viewing pleasure

I'm about 3 weeks late for my actual anniversary, due to sheer laziness. I do, however, have photos from that date, as well as some from today!

Now you may all bask in the glory *snort* of my pathetically slow-growing hair (c'mon, I can't follow a squiggy update thread!! no fair! :p). It probably doesn't help that I am not afraid of those scissors, and a 1/2 inch trim when the ends are getting crummy doesn't daunt me.

As a refresher, here's where I started my LHC journey.

And here's my 1 year anniversary photo! These are roller-setted curls.

http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y50/astrauser/2591f00f.jpg

Here's a true anniversary photo. I combed out the curls so I could see the actual length, hence the sloppy mess. And I have NO idea if that kooky long bit is because my hair is just falling weird or if my hemline is all jacked up!! Why don't you people tell me these things?!

This is post-trim on the same day. I saw that kooky long bit and freaked a little. Plus I freshened up my layers a bit. Trimmed using the high ponytale method, followed by Feye's. Still a bit crooked. :shrug: Oh well, curls hide all sorts of sins.

Here's the back of my head as of today....I had some good curls (natural) going on so I wanted a photo (this is what motivated me to upload photos finally!). It's darker than the previous photos because I dyed it with Natural Instincts last week to cover the orange faded ends. It's a bit darker than I expected (darn that porosity!!) but it's a semi-perm color so it should fade nicely.

Bye! :waving:

Oh, and I'm down 18 lbs to boot!

And this concludes our anniversary thread. You may go about your business as usual. :flower:

I'm so glad to see photos - they were long due, you know! And of your pretty face, too. You really spoil us today ;-)

Great progress. I'm envious of those waves. Really beautiful. And weightloss - well let's not go there! You look great!!! And how wonderful to see you smile.

Who knew two years ago that your hair would change so much?

And about the slow progress - after all, it's the quality that counts, not the quantity.

Congratulations, Manderly, on your 2 year anniversary (I remembered when you joined!), and here's to many more years in our community. I cannot get over how much your hair has grown, and it has gotten curlier as well, and is shiny and healthy!

Beautiful hair - I absolutely love your curls. You have a few photos in the curly and wurly thread that make me green with envy. :)

Not to take away from your anniversary post, but did you say you self trimmed layers? How? I'm sick of paying $80 for teeny tiny trims and would like to try to trim my own.

You and your hair look divine! I know it can be hard for people on the curlier end of the spectrum, but trust me, the difference is remarkable.

You know, I really like the darker hair. It suits you. Not that the other color wasn't pretty too, but don't feel odd having it until it fades out a bit--looks nice.

AND YAY FOR CURLY HAIR. BOOYA. :p

Glasseyes, I prefer the dark brown on me as well. I dye it that and it fades to the chestnut. It just looked BLACK this time around. I didn't realize it had faded and settled into a nice dark brown until I looked more closely at the pic :)

Thanks :D

Manderly, you look wonderful and so does your hair!! I love the loose curls and the shine! Now if I could just lose 18 lbs....or 10, or 2.............I have started walking though!!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos with us!

Looking great! I had no idea your hair could get that curly, it usually looks like alot of nice waves and body rather than curls, but either way looks fantastic! Are you also growing out your bangs?

Happy 2nd LHC anniversary. Your hair is looking gorgeous - that's some serious growth over the last two years especially since you are not afraid of those scissors! :) Congrats on the weight loss too - I know how difficult that can be (I lost about 12kg of post baby fat about 8 years ago). You have a very pretty face too. :)

I wouldn't have even said anything about "slow growing." I can really see a difference! Maybe I will understand better after I see my one year pictures. Your hair must grow well even when you were cutting. I like it when you have your hair curly. It is very pretty! Oh, and happy 2 year anniversary! :)

And congrats on the weight loss!!!

i cant believe i didnt see this thread.. sorry about having my anniversary before yours.. if it helps you arent going to be seeing many progress threads from me because i cant keep away from the scissors.. i ended up trimming another inch this weekend..

wow 18 pounds! thats great.:cheese:. may i ask for a pm with how you did it?.. (squiggy is getting chubby)..

i'm loving the curls in your latest pics.. though there is something to be said for those thick waves.. you have had alot of progress..

Lovely progress and well done on the weightloss (BTW if you want it back ive found it!) and I love the flower growing out of the top of your head look, very elegant. Maybe some instructions on how to achieve this look?!!:D
