So, I've been reading the "you know you're a long hair when..." thread, and I simply can't relate! I'm at The Great Shoulder Blade Pain (between APL and BSL). I thought this could be a nice thread for us shorties while we wait to post on the other thread.
I'll start!

you day dream of having long hair during boring lectures
you baby your hair constantly so that you won't have to trim out old damage when you reach your goal length
you put your hair in a pony stump "to protect it", even though it's not much more protected than down
you put your hair in sad bun, even though it barely goes into a pony stump
you have a ton of videos and websites bookmarked for when your hair becomes longer
you try out some of above mentioned websites once a month, to see if your hair is longer

When your neck hurts from trying to feel what its like to be near your goal length.

When you try a cinnamon bun and it's lopsy and it looks like it's growing grass because of the shorter layers.

When you have measured your hair obsessivly for a week and you wonder, "whats taking so long.....GROW ALREADY!!!!"

Ha ha! One for me. :-)

You have worked out in which month you will reach which hair milestone, with trims or without

You know exactly how long your hair would be now, if only you hadn't cut/coloured it that last time

You see more long hair out in the world than you used to, and you sigh when you see it

You have a wish list (or worse, a collection :eyebrows: ) of hairtoys for when your hair is longer

When you cannot resist buying hairtoys for your hair 'to grow into' and keep trying on the hairtoys to see if you have enough hair to wear them yet. UPDATE: Just realised Lillylonghair said something similar - oops!

When you quite often overdo the oiling to make absolutely certain your ends don't dry out and hence need trimming.

This happened to me this morning. I had APL hair in the dream, and in the dream I checked to see that it was real because even in the dream I was sure my hair had been shorter only moments earlier. And I was so pleased when it was really longer than I had remembered. And then I woke up. Pah.

you force yourself to eat eggs for breakfast when you'd rather be eating pastries. :D

you obsessively check pictures from 2 months ago to see if your hair looks longer.

you try every supplement, technique, and product hoping to get 1/8" extra growth every month, even though you know it probably won't work, but it's hard to sit there and "do nothing."

hmmm

When you daydream about all the beautiful updos you would do if only your hair were BSL length.

When you go to a grocery store and see Indian herbs that you aren't familiar with, you come back and run a search on LHC.

When you know all the different kinds of food that directly influences your hair.

When you don't like eating too much sweet because you think it'll somehow affect your hair growth.

When you stare at people's hair without realising it.

When you have more herbs and oils than you use in any given month.

When you run out of jars to keep your herbs in (yes, this happened).

When you run out of place in the bathroom to keep your jars (they're in my closet now :p).

When you read about an oil on LHC, you immediately want to go and buy it.

When you don't mind oily hair anymore because it helps you do your braid better.

I'm sure there are more...

Try braiding a long, narrow scarf into your hair; gives you the feel of long hair - really fun. It's a little tricky, though.

When your silky, delicate scarves get tangled in your earrings and you think, "Well, these earrings have to go! I don't want my hair to get stuck like that!!" But, your hair isn't even to your chin yet..... (and by "you" I mean me) :)

When you daydream about your hair being down to your tushy and everyone compliments you.

When you wear scarves to protect the ends while it is in a bun and let the rest fall down your back (pretend hair length).

When you dream of having long hair and someone cuts it

When you take numerous supplements and/or vitamins to improve health and hopefully growth.

When you pass any reflective surface and have to check out your hair.

When you constantly research hair hair hair.

When your hair things are all over the house.

:rolling: Love it!


I thought of another one. Today I read a cheesy novel where in one scene the heroine's hip length braid got caught in a closed trunk (old time luggage not the car). It was meant to be a funny scene and all I could do was shudder. I reflexively touched my four inch long hair and immediately thought of at least four updo's that the heroine would have done to protect her hair in that time period!

Yeah, i dream in updo's.....

Ok, I just hit another milestone of sorts today. I was sitting on the couch reading a book, when I felt something crawling on my shoulder. I started swatting at it like mad without looking to see what it was, because quite frankly, I didn't care. LOL I see my mother looking at me like I've lost my mind...she says, very quietly, "That was your hair. You have a piece that fell out of your french braid." and then started laughing hysterically. Umm...I knew that, really I did. :D

Yes, and Yes, I would be to my next goal length if I hadnt cut it almost a year ago, but I TRY not to think about that


When you browse member's albums and leave so many messages telling them how wonderful their hair is they begin to wonder if you are a stalker. :D

When you take out the tape measure and your sister immediately knows that you are going to measure your hair.

When you obsess about your hair length and baby any damaged ends.

When you daydream about having long hair and all the updos you will one day get to do.

When you bookmark various haircare and hair accessory sites (such as the Ficarre site, which you plan on ordering from the minute your hair is long enough to use said accessory).

When your family doesn't even have to ask what site you're on because they know it's LHC.

When you've tried all sorts of food related things out on your hair.

This happened to me this morning. I had APL hair in the dream, and in the dream I checked to see that it was real because even in the dream I was sure my hair had been shorter only moments earlier. And I was so pleased when it was really longer than I had remembered. And then I woke up. Pah.

:)

When I had a shaved head I would frequently dream that I had long, flowing hair, and would wake up majorly disappointed. And I like my head shaved!

Now my hair is APL and I think I'll try for waist length. I have so many updo tutorials bookmarked, I can't wait to be able to do them.

you S & D your hair frequently and even take it upon yourself to S & D your sister's hair after she told you she wanted to grow out hers to waist length. :)

Yay for family long hair progress! Actually, since I showed her what straighteners do to your hair I don't think she's been using it nearly as often (she's also been stretching out washes when she realized that her hair doesn't get oily and need washing every day). It's kind of nice to see her taking better care of her hair. :D

You henna every week because you think your hair is happiest that way.
You accidentally buy a huge bottle of conditioner you thought was cone-free... but it isn't, and you use it as shaving cream.
People look at you funny when you're shopping because you read all the ingredients on every bottle for hair.
You have at least five different oils in your bathroom that you use only for hair.
You don't use EVOO for cooking but still use it on your ends.
You hate being in the sun but don't mind it now because the heat might make your hair grow faster.
You eat healthy just so your hair grows faster.
You're glad when your hair is in a pony and it touches your neck, because that means it's getting longer! And you tell everyone this, but they don't pay attention or get excited.
You get excited about large shower caps!

You dont care what pattern silk scarves have on them, you get them anyhow. You also buy silk pillowcases and get looked at, as if you were a honeymooner.

The mirror becomes your next best friend.

You know every mirror with good sunlight, what time of day, and what angle is best to look from, this also includes the best back of the head camera shot.

You have to calculate is it worth getting one of those fancy combs or two or the other hair toys, but end buying all three.

In the shower, you try to do a scalp-only shampoo even though there's only a couple inches of hair that won't get washed.

You spend tons of time determined to create a hairstick updo that stays in place, even though a few days ago the one you managed to create didn't last more than an hour.

Your hair is up and you forget that it's not at your goal length. You're surprised and disappointed when you take it down.

Let's see (I skipped most pages to quote and post).....

When S+D gets stressful because you know it's taking off that last half inch however slowly.

When you refuse to chop off damage because you feel like that last 3" is the difference you need to feel like a longhair.

You panic in the morning when you wake up and your hair is loose because that precious half inch might have gotten tangled and will break off while combing.

You check your wood/bone/hone comb for cracks that might snag your hair and file the seams off your jaw clips.

You feel like the more time spent on LHC .... and the higher your post count is ..... the faster your hair will grow and the longer it will be!

You do not only have a folder on your computer with long hair-pics, you have a folder just for different updos and a folder for hairtoys.

You put these folders in pictureshows when you're not using the computer.

You used to collect hairdye-bottles to divide the ingredients for multiple uses when shorthaired. Now you use them to put oils in.

You've made a list over all the tips you've heard to make your hair healthier and longer.

You're calculating how long it is 'til you reach your goal depending on if your hair would grow 1mm/day, 1cm/month or 1inch/month. ( 3 years, 6 years, around 4 years)

I relate to EVERYONE in this thread. LoveitloveitLOVEIT!

When you obsess over your daily vitamin regimen, not for your health, but on the off chance it might make your hair grow faster

You agonize over when to trim and how much -and how do you REALLY know you're only cutting off 1/4 inch? You could be setting your growth back!

You're torn between feeling pleased at a comment about your 'long hair' and like you don't deserve it...because your hair won't be long until you hit your goal length.

When you put yourself off to sleep at night by saying the following:
" I have _ inches to go before goal"
"I should make goal in about _ months"
"I should make halfway to goal in about _ months"
And you can't remember the rest because you are already asleep (bored yourself to sleep!)

This one happened to me this weekend:
You know you're a wannabe long hair when... you find yourself envious of a little girl with long hair, because her grow-out distance from chin to waist is so many inches shorter than the adult distance...

This is too funny!! This one happened to me:

Your friends couldn't understand why were you so excited the first time you turned your head and your ponytail poke your eye

You were glad and told everyone the first time your hair dipped the food (they didn't understand either)

You almost cried the first time you turned your head and when you faced front again, your ponytail stayed over your shoulder

Luggen(fringe)

When you see a women riding a motorcycle and you say to your DH
"That can't be good for her hair"
Completely ignoring that she isn't wearing a helmet and that should be your main concern not her SL hair flapping in the breeze.

When you are riding in the car with DH and you take your hair down just to see if it is long enough to get stuck in the window or door :)
"LOOK, it reaches the door window now!"

when you keep measuring your hair and wishing for some miracle that it's grown an inch or more!

when you look at your co-worker who has long hair and you begin to wonder how long it will take for your hair to reach that length!

when you wait for someone to ask you, "is your hair growing?" OR "wow! your hair is really growing sooooo fast!"

when you spend hours in LHC and other hair websites trying to find the secret to growing long hair fast :magic:

What I want most of all though, is a long braid.

I braid my hair to bed, probably not necessary yet but it's just become a habit.

I jump for joy when I'm wearing the bra that rides just sliiightly up, because I'm suddenly much closer to bsl :-P then I get sad again when wearing the bras that ride lower XP (those are the "official bras", haha.)

Lets see if I got one... when you try to make some up dos that wont work that well with your hair length, but you do them often anyway to see if your hair is starting to be long enough to hold them.
Getting a hair craze after seeing some beautiful super long hair pics, I sometimes get these. I get super protective with my hair for a few days and just wish it would grow faster :pray: I'm right in the middle of one just now. I have been wearing a scarf for days, to protect it from the cold, and I wash it more seldom and have it oiled. It does wonders though.
