Hello all, I shall be joining you now. : ) Finally reached tailbone 40.5", a bit later than I had hoped for -growth stalled mid-winter and postpartum shedding caused 1/4" circumference loss so I ignored my hair for a while- classic on me is 45" so I am hoping to reach it before the end of the year even if I microtrim a couple times.

I think I’m gonna hang out here for a while.

I managed to reach hip recently. And TBL I’ll probably reach by June. After that I’ve got a long ways to go for classic length, so might as well park it here.

Here’s my album and the most recent photos I’ve taken.

Yes, I know the first picture of my ends are extremely sparse. My hair is usually wet when taking photos to see the length. The ends fill out a lot more when dry.

Once my hair reaches the bottom of my scrub top then I will have one inch to go to make classic. Here is a picture of my current progress. I took the picture while still wearing my nursing uniform because the color gave a nice contrast.

I have officially graduated from the "waist to tailbone" thread today, so here I am!
I will need to do some microtrimming when the first half of 2018 no-trim challenge is over (or maybe earlier, depending on how I feel about my ends), so it might take a while to get to classic.. can't wait!

It's an "unnatural" one though, it's cut in. :) But I like it. Otherwise I would go back to Feye's method. I might even combine them at longer lengths if the V starts to bother me, but it hasn't yet, so... yeah. :D Thank you so much!

It is not a hairtyping picture, maybe it's that. I did use different gel this week versus last week (last week New Wave gel, this week Eco Styler argan oil (which is much softer of a hold).

I just wanted to let others see, that hair can be really finicky and odd, and from one week to the next, it looks different; watch the previous picture I posted. I did a side by side in the post your picture thread, which will probably make it more clear. :flower:

Maybe you're having a growth stop? I think I do see a bit of growth though since the last picture you posted; or am I imagining things - I don't think so.

In any case, it's gorgeous! :D

I'm thinking it might have been the gel. I used the New Wave gel that week. This week I used Eco Styler (argan oil) and that has a much softer hold to it. Both times I used the curl enhancing smoothie.

Hopefully, there is a little growth there. Definately, it’s not fast.
Hopefully classic this year; I’m confident it will be, stretched. Thanks for the feedback.

That was my issue too, although I got paranoid and started putting it up by hip. Most of the time I just sleep with it loose and a hairstick close by so I can throw it up quickly. But I have been experimenting with a sleep braid again in the past week or so.

Yeah, I just now flip the ends up and secure those with a tiny claw in the middle of my head. I'm a side sleeper and I'm always on one side, so it doesn't matter.

Oh my..... In this case the camera is untruthful. My hair, unfortunately, is very coarse. I have to condition multiple times with a witches brew of conditioners to get smooth and soft. Silky never. But on a bright note, it is great that
It can 'appear' that way.

As I mentioned in the Classic length by Christmas 2018 thread (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/showthread.php?t=144596), it feels like a snailzone back there. Slowly but surely... At least it gets me accustomed to the length. :lol: I just hate when I'm doing the dishes when my hair is drying freely, and my hair plonks on in for another wash. And no amount of swishing it back over my shoulder works.

Here's my seasonal length pic from a week ago at 100cm (regained what I'd trimmed in January), with my left hand on my hip, and right hand indicating classic.

Hello to all, I believe I fit here. I have just reached TBL! :o when I pull it straight it is to me right on the top of my tailbone. However when I am in the shower and my hair is soaking wet I can feel it reaching the bottom of my tailbone. The next milestone I'm wanting to reach is classic! Funny to say I just joined the LHC recently at TBL thinking its not exactly super long. but my hair has never been considered as short either. The shortest my hair ever was that I can remember was when I was 5. At SL maybe a bit past it. As a kid I hated haircuts and as a result the length I have now being 19. I feel I'm gonna be here a little while. At the start of the new year 2018 is when I was truly curious can my hair grow longer then what it is? I distinctly remember in 2017 when I got a trim they said I had 20" of hair and all i thought was wow. Then I found you all that made my dream goal of having mid thigh length. Though I highlighted my hair so much in 2016 and in 2017 I did one all over color concerned that I may be hurting the hair that I love so much. Since then I have been taking the best care of it I can with natural products and all. I'm glad to be here with you on this journey to CL together! I currently have last I measured January 31st 24 inches! And for me I believe classic is 31" half your body? Its hard for me to tell how many inches classic is for me I am 5'3".

Welcome to the thread:D

You say you are 24 inches... Are you measuring from the front of your hairline on your forehead to the end of your hair tips? That's where most of us are measuring from. It is easier to be accurate. Hope you have happy growing:cool:

Hello all!

Crystawni, your hair is as beautiful as ever; the longer my hair gets, the more envious I am of your super-thick hemline (you look like you can keep growing foreeever)!

Lapushka and Wildcat Diva, I equally love your dreamy fairytale endings! And your gorgeous waves and curls! So lovely!

It has been a few months since I posted (hair grows so slowly, life is so cuckoo), but I wanted to share a photo of my progress in the last year. (Both photos were taken the day after washing, showing braid waves.) I am headed for classic length sometime this year, I think!

I trimmed about 2-3" off my hair around New Year's, to try to even out and thicken up the hemline (sigh). I'm pretty surprised by how much my hair has grown in 12 months, considering the trim! (I guess it's about average growth; it's just surprising when placed side by side.)

I'm discouraged by how flimsy the ends are getting (goodbye, dreams of beyond-floor-length Rapunzel hair!), but I'm going to keep growing without trimming too much at least to the end of this year. I'm hunting for terminal, or ends-too-thin-and-wispy-to-keep-going, whichever comes first. =]

OMG your hair has grown so much in one year. Especially considering you took 2/3 inches off; that is a lot of growth! IMMHO your ends look fine. I think it gets prettier the longer it gets, if you have a tiny bit of fairytale ends. Well done!

ErinEM, you have perfect fairy tale ends! The look is enhanced by those waves. And that looks like a lot of growth!

I admit I'm slightly jealous of those who have/will zoom past me. I'm stuck until I cut out or grow out the damage.

I think it's time for me to move out of this thread. I've actually known I was somewhere around/past classic for a while, but it seemed like mostly just stragglers, and I never had a good chance for a picture, so I didn't worry about it. Now that I have that picture, though... When did the stragglers get to nearly FTL?!? It hasn't felt that long while dealing with it!

http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=31431&d=1524867373

(Just ignore the weird greasy-on-top, frizzy-on-bottom thing going on, please... My hair does weird things with SMP, and doesn't decide it's happy again until I braid it for a night afterwards.)


And to all the rest of you posting pictures: All of your hair looks amazing! I still feel like most of yours looks better than mine, even if I have the length you're aiming for!

I'm not actually sure. It's usually "until I get sick of it", which historically has been anywhere between classic and FTL. So I'm approaching the longest I've ever had it. But I've also figured out how to do buns that actually hold, and am not having the same static/tangle problems that I've had in the past, so I'm not sure how far it'll grow this time. Nor do I have any idea what I'll do once I hit that point, this time. Maybe I'll try out maintaining instead of a major cut. Who knows!

SparrowWings, that is a beautiful length.

Luna Starsetta, where did he measure from? The crown of your head or front hairline or...? 24" isn't even close to waist on me, so just curious.

I decided to take a picture while my hair was damp from washing because therefore my ends would be a bit less curved, and I should not have because I now feel like my hair is just teasing me. I didn't intend to share this picture because I hate the way my hair looks half dry and the light is bad, but I'm so. Close. :justy:

And I'm super excited, it's really started to dawn on me that I'm about to reach the first big goal I set for myself here: Classic length! I'm about 1-1.5 inches away from the very bitty bottom ends reaching, and about 2 inches really from looking classic length, I think. I haven't been taking any length pictures this year (oops), but I think I'll try to get a couple up here soon....

Forgive me for sounding stupid. I know I should know anatomy better...where exactly is the tailbone located? And is classic when your bottom is covered? Thanks :oops:

How long did it take y'all?

Forgive me for sounding stupid. I know I should know anatomy better...where exactly is the tailbone located? And is classic when your bottom is covered? Thanks :oops:


The end/tip of the tailbone is approximately mid-butt length. It can be hard to locate the actual tip, as the tailbone is tilted inwards...you have to really dig in there... The start of the tailbone is a bit higher up, but not that much.

I refer to the tip or end of the tailbone as tbl hair, this is approximately halfway between bcl and classic - perfect.

This picture clearly shows the tailbone and how it's located:
http://orlandparkprayercenter.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/coccyx.jpg


I know some people refer to bcl as tbl, but the bump that can be felt at around the butt crack ( :p ) isn't the tailbone, but the sacrum.

I can't measure at the moment thanks to a shoulder injury over the past 8 months that's only now getting treatment, but I know I have a few more months to go before I call classic. I did a 1cm trim a few weeks ago, too, so that set me back a tad. Maybe mid October or November if I sneak another trim in there?

I think I'm at the point that I will need to have someone take length shots for me to figure out what my length is. This area is... curvier than the rest of my back and more difficult to feel exactly where the hair hangs to. I also can't see it in the bathroom 3-way mirror anymore - it's too long!

Because, my ends looked and felt kinda dry. But now my hair is much happier now since I trimmed it. It needed it anyways. I haven't had a trim since November of last year. So, I've done excellent for 7 months!

Wow, you're gonna be there before you know it! I think I'll be hitting classic around same time with Zesty and Crystawni but at least it will be this year definitely. My ends are not at their best but I don't want to trim now that I'm so close to achieving my initial goal length. :) Here's a pic from today. White line demonstrating the classic length on me. (those are by the way dance shorts not underwear to be clear hehe)

You're doing so well! I love how happy and healthy your hair looks, too.


Awesome hair Serimel!
I love these shorts because they make it seem like I'm already just about there, although I know I have around 5 cm to go still. I think they must be pushing up the butt:)

Looks like we're a big Class(ic) of '18...

https://preview.ibb.co/mMZqJJ/IMG_20180531_164056.jpg

Class(ic) of '18! :rockerdud You really do look sooooooo close there, but can this length be deceiving or what (it seems to take forever, too). On a side-note, I wore my (drying) hair down while playing bass the other day, and as much as I thought it would get in the way when over my shoulder, it went behind and below my bass, so no issues. That really made it feel long to me. Do you wear yours down when playing guitar? I get too hot to, but was curious.


I haven't been active here for quite some time, but I'm still growing my hair.

Actually I only have 1-2 cm left to classic, but I'm planning on trimming my hair 2-3 cm at the first of July, so I should reach classic somewhere during the autumn :) It's still earlier than I counted on!

I passed 1 m (100 cm) during my absence and reached floor length while sitting. That's two major milestones for me!

Great to see you back, Tatsu! And yup, yup with your milestones! Seems there are a few of us bumming around! Congrats!

Yeah I wear it down when playing guitar. Sometimes it does get in the way but that was mostly when it was a little shorter and I could still headbang with it. It would get caught on the tuners:)

That's great! :D Yes, the "mindset" towards one's hair does have a big effect on how we cope with it, doesn't it? I have noticed the same thing. One good reason not to listen to negativity about it, and particularly that little voice inside our own head.... :laugh:

Henrietta, I was definitely thinking of trimming off those strands and maintaining classic for a bit, maybe at least until the end of the year! I'm debating this because I feel like I'm soooo close to my mid-thigh goal, so I'm trying to decide which is more important to me at the moment... quality or length. :ponder:

leayellena, I do think it's normal at our thickness, but I am at a slight disadvantage because I'm growing out bleach and layers so my ends are exceptionally bad... I have had hair slightly longer than this before, and my ends were much thicker then, so I'm very confident that I can grow my hair fairly long still, as long as I keep trimming after a certain point... hopefully that's good news for you. :D

Side note, I took some photos this morning of my hair after taking it down from my bedtime bun, and I'm much happier with the way it look today. :) The waviness eats up the length a bit, but I am totally fine with it. :D

I noticed yesterday on wash day that I've hit tailbone (if not already a tiny bit past!), so I'm officially graduating to this thread! Tailbone was my goal when I first joined LHC, but now I'm thinking I might like classic.

I do need to try to thicken up my hemline with microtrims at some point, but eh...I'm liking the length right now. I'm in an unintentional no-trim year. I'll assess where I want to go next in December.

Aredhel, your hair is so pretty! I love the soft waves from the bun, and it looks great in the barrette.

My avatar and signature picture are outdated, but according to this chart https://www.hairfinder.com/info/hair-length-chart.gif I'm past tailbone length. For quite a while now I've been doing the benign neglect care (is that a polite euphemism?) and just putting it up in a claw clip, with a cwc or cw every third day or so, as needed. With better care, maybe it'll reach classic or beyond some day! :)

Just called tbl. I can't wait to reach classic which is 4 inches away. I have decided to start trimming this half of the year to finally rid my ends of a lot of splits. So I might be sticking around for awhile. Ahh it is so hard to stop growing but I know it is for the best.

It will happen, I know. Probably by my next seasonal pic around my birthday, which also coincides with my next trim. :rolleyes: We shall see if scissors or length win that one...

Every time I see your hair, I always have to stare. It’s so pretty. How long are you planning on growing to?

:o Thank you! I would like to reach thigh, but i have a feeling classic will be the sweet spot for me.

Your curls are beautiful and they look so healthy! I hope mine look like that when they grow out some more! The hemline looks like a V? It's lovely :)

Moonrabbit, your hair looks like it's edging closer to classic - your ends look fantastic too.

Luna, I love your curls - I think curly hair gets away with a not-blunt hemline, your hair looks really healthy to me.


Okay, so, I realised today I'm (Just) TBL when I was in the shower, so I've graduated the waist to TBL thread finally. In theory, I should have waited a few days until my July length and photo but I couldn't help doing it early now I've reached TBL :D I am getting worried about my hemline though, I wonder if I can reach classic before maintaining for a while to even up the hemline.. or do you guys think it needs a trim sooner?

The dye is growing out quite a bit more now which is good, and I'm at the end of my t-shirt which makes me happy - that's exactly TBL on me.

The first pic was exactly mid august and the last pic was today - so this is 10 1/2 months growth.

Last time I was here I was between hip and tailbone; now I am here! I just had a trim this week, so it might have been longer last week. Instead, itís even at the ends.

I would post pictures, but I donít think I can yet.

You can but you gotta upload it to imgur first.

Thanks Jas. But my ends are in pretty bad shape which is why I will be microtrimming for the rest of the year.


As for your ends I guess it depends on the health, if it is just uneven I would wait it out but if you feel like they are damaged a little trim could make all the difference. And congrats on the new milestone!

EEK!! I'm so excited to be joining this thread! I finally hit tailbone again after having my hair cut to chin-length three-and-a-half years ago! (It wasn't supposed to be that short. The woman who was cutting it got a little carried away.) But I'm finally at tailbone, with my eye on classic!

Sophia, I definitely think you're brushing classic, I think we all have our own standards at which we "call" our lengths.

Aunt Rapunzel, I'd call you tailbone for sure.

https://i.imgur.com/ceOsmMY.jpg?1

I've now taken a half dozen pics of my length, on different days, and I have concluded I'm at tailbone, at least what I'm call tailbone. I have also discovered that my new Transformers shirts all end at classic so these will be my photo shirts.

Well, I feel like I hit BCL pretty quickly.

The next 4" to TBL seemed like a long time.

And the next 3" to Classic have been going slowly too...I am allllllmost there !

Need to get hubby to take a pic one of these days !

Hello all!

I'm still new, but this seemed like the best place to start. I guess I'm pretty much at tailbone (I think) right now, but I have a lot of end damage, flyaways, and inconsistent length. So I guess I'll be hanging out here for a while to slowly trim it up.

Here goes... 🤞

Hivelvetpuddles! Yes, I would definitely say that you're at solid tailbone length now. I honestly don't see any damage or splits. To me, your hair looks fine. :) It is gorgeous! You are sooooo lucky to be at tailbone length right now. I've got a while before I get there. Like, about another year. I'm almost at waist length. I'm hoping to hit hip length at the end of this year. Happy growing! :)

sophia, oh, wow, I'm in love with your texture! There's something about pin-straight hair that I'm always drawn to (perhaps because mine is neither straight enough to look like that, nor wavy enough to be called wavy).

Robi-Bird, I really adore your texture too! Ah, we want what we don't have. Beautiful locks. You definitely look tailbone from here!

velvetpuddles, we're in a similar boat in terms of being at TBL but needing to maintain for a while, though I must say your hair is looking pretty dang good! I spot very little taper. Lovely!

I never posted a proper picture when I joined this thread last month (and I apologize if I'm spamming the forum with this one picture, but I'm barely taking length pics these days), so here's mine now:

So many beautiful heads of hair here!

I experienced something very strange and different yesterday. I went on a long hike and decided to wear my hair in a braided pony. Whenever I was walking a fast pace my braid would swing in this pendulum motion and it would keep getting faster and faster to the point I had to grab it and hold it down lol. Maybe I just never noticed it at shorter lengths but at tailbone it becomes a weapon.

I'm not at tailbone yet (I just stalk here shhh!) but I don't wear braided ponytails for just that reason. Definitely a safety hazard for anyone nearby!

My hair does this, too. I think when it was short enough to not swing too far to the sides it wasn't as much of an issue, but the longer it gets, the greater the swing radius, and the greater the radius of the swing with the same or faster pace, the faster the ends are going and that can certainly hurt if it hits someone! (and they say one never uses high school math again :P)

I guess my hair is growing? A little? I was trying to sort through photos from the past few months to convince myself. Here's Feb 3 to July 1. I don't have a more recent one because I'm trying to chill vis a vis length and focus more on new hairstyles.

Heck yes, that's growing! Do bear in mind that growth may be more than it appears considering that it probably is going past a convex surface. With trims I would be happy to get that kind of growth in a whole year! Your hair is growing just fine :) (and fine-looking it is!)

You'll be getting there before me now, Zesty! :p I trimmed a few centimetres straight across the hem to thicken things up after a week or so of much-needed S & Ding ratted things out a bit, so am back to around 40" with something like 3" to go before classic. I've been slowly edging out my layers since 2015, and now the me-shaped taper has a bit more substance that I'm liking. And as I've lost about half a tailspin around my bun stem, my bun wrap finishes at a much-moar-betters spot for my buggered frozen shoulder to handle, so I haz a happy. But that shoulder also made trimming a one-handed affair of the non-dominant variety that I won't be tackling again, so my hubster has offered to do the snip (of my hair!!) next time. Luckily he's a carpenter with an eye for levels and minimal waste, and has successfully trimmed my hair before (albeit a few years ago). Aaaand, as I trimmed my hair soaked and wet-straight in the shower (gives me the best results, and yeah, you can see why hubs has volunteered for the next time... :ohmy:), and with me progressively lacking in sight, I had to wear my glasses in there for the first time. Foggy goggles, much? :face:

I also did a much needed trim. Trying my best to maintain at tbl but it feels so boring lol. I hope once I take my seasonal growth photo, seeing the results of my hem will motivate me to keep going till the end of the year.

MoonRabbit, the boredom from maintaining bit is what worries me about when I reach a length I'm happy with. Will my want for change bug me enough, or will my ever-morphing colour keep the scissors at bay? In any case, I'll be trimming for end-thickness for a while longer, so at least that will placate things for a bit.

ThrowNormanAway, congrats! That be classic for sure!
