View Full Version : February 2010 Measure In!!!!

February 1st, 2010, 12:41 AM
Hey everyone! Time to get out those tape measures!!!

My tips went to 42 inches at the very tippy-tip!
My virgin hair is now about 7.5-7.75 inches long! (That is how I measure my real progress. ;) )

How did you all do this last month?!

February 1st, 2010, 12:53 AM
My hair is now 58 cm / 22.8 inches. Thats's 1 cm /0.4 inches longer than last month. Go hair!

February 1st, 2010, 12:56 AM
Checking in here (if nobody minds.) My husband just measured me tonight and I was at 39"! That's 1.5" growth!:cheese:

February 1st, 2010, 01:02 AM
DBF measured my hair at 27.25 yesterday. Only up .25 from last month, but he was really admiring my hair, so I'm happy anyway :)

February 1st, 2010, 01:29 AM
My growth was 1 cm /0.4 inches, which brings me to a total of 2,1/2". Not much I know but I had a buzz cut on October 2, 2009.

43.3". That's 0.4" longer than last month. Not much but at least there was some growth. :shrug:

February 1st, 2010, 04:17 AM
After a two month stall with zero growth I finally grew the normal 1/2 inch and am now 20". Finally out of the teens. Yippie!!!

February 1st, 2010, 04:49 AM
I am measuring in at 19" this month. 1" of growth. :happydance:

February 1st, 2010, 05:29 AM
My hair is now 78 cm / 30.7 inch. so a grow of 1 cm / 0.4 inch. My hair usually grows 1 cm a month.

February 1st, 2010, 05:48 AM
76 cm or 29.9 inches. 1 cm/ 0.4 inches of growth, same as last three months.

February 1st, 2010, 06:51 AM
I trimmed a couple of inches this month. Back to 30 inches.

February 1st, 2010, 06:55 AM
I'm not sure on measuring yet - but about 1/4" of roots are visible, so I see growth :)

February 1st, 2010, 07:41 AM
I am measuring in (pulling completly straight to the longest hairs) 21" which is a whole inch of growth last month..whoo hoo for MSM!! ☺

But since I am going to start wearing my hair curly/wavy thats how I should actually measure my length...and Im got 19.5-20" this morning.. I will have my DD help measure later

either way I still got a full inch of growth!!!

February 1st, 2010, 07:51 AM
I'm at 16 3/4, up 1/4 in. from last month.

February 1st, 2010, 07:54 AM
Yay! I'm now at waistlength at 31"!

February 1st, 2010, 08:31 AM

Cut off 2.5 inches on January 6th, measured at 20". So I've gotten half an inch in a little less than 4 weeks.

February 1st, 2010, 12:11 PM
I am at about 35inches at the very tips as well.
I grew an inch from last month...I think. :)

6inches or so left of dyed hair (hard to tell, most of it has shed out)

February 1st, 2010, 01:40 PM
31.75 inches...I measured 4 times. I trimmed off a few inches a little over two weeks ago and was back to 31 inches. I must be having a growth spurt or something!

February 1st, 2010, 02:19 PM
I got it measured, I think, yesterday, to 27,75". I don't remember what day I measured the last time but it's only a few weeks ago and then I got 26,5". Could my hair really have grown 1,25" in just a few weeks???

February 1st, 2010, 02:23 PM
35.5 ish for me this month.

February 1st, 2010, 02:27 PM
I am at 21 inches (53.5 cm) right now.
That means 0.5 inch (1.5 cm) of growth this month!
... which is a lot for me. :D

I have been experimenting with more natural hair care, and it seems to be working :)

February 1st, 2010, 02:30 PM
I'm 24" I've grown an inch this month :)

February 1st, 2010, 02:38 PM
I did my monthly 1/4" trim, and still measured a gain to a solid 33 inches. I'm a solid hip now. :)

Also, my ends look much healthier and I am very, very happy with my plan to trim monthly in 2010 and still gain some length!!

February 1st, 2010, 03:32 PM
23 1/8 inches. My hair grew 3/4 of an inch this month. :D

February 1st, 2010, 05:00 PM
I'm up 1 cm, or 0.39 inches.

Some places measure a 0.5 cm more, but I'm not counting it, I rather go for the shortest measurements :D

Anyways, it brings me up from 41.50 to 41.90, almost two inches!

It is growing steady! So GOOO! I want 110 cm by July!

:cheese: I'm yepy happy!!! :eyebrows:

February 1st, 2010, 05:15 PM
74.5 cm (29.3") Yay!

February 1st, 2010, 05:27 PM
DH measures for me and I only gained 1/4 inch over last month. Maybe I'll have a growth spurt when the weather warms up... yep, I would like that just fine.


February 1st, 2010, 05:29 PM
24 inches. I've grown an inch this month.

But I'm planning a pretty big trim this month, so I won't hold on to this length for long. But my ends gotta go! Eh, it'll grow back.

Mine's at the very top of my lip (just touching the Cupid's Bow). Last month it was just touching the tip of my nose.

February 1st, 2010, 08:14 PM
36.5" - I was starting to worry I was stalled at 36", but I guess not.

February 1st, 2010, 10:07 PM
I"m measuring at 57" again. So I'm back to knee length for sure! I'm going to wait till 58" before I trip again, so I can stay at knee length all the time.

February 1st, 2010, 10:59 PM
I'm up to 93.5cm which is aprox 36.5 inches.
My regrowth is aprox 5-6 inches. It's not a hugely obvious decamation line so it's hard to judge.

February 2nd, 2010, 01:02 AM
I'm at 37.5," so a half-inch of growth for me.

February 2nd, 2010, 04:03 AM

You're hair is so long that when you trip over it you know it's time to trim!:D
Yes I'm a smart a$$. I love your hair btw.

February 2nd, 2010, 04:40 AM
30 inches or just barely over.
I measured in at 29 at the beginning of December. I am impressed... this is the first time I am keeping track of growth and before I thought my hair grew really slow compared to the average of .5 inches/month. Maybe not!

February 2nd, 2010, 07:43 AM
I'm still at 46", and am continuing to maintain at fingertip. Hoping some thickness will move down my length this year. :)

February 2nd, 2010, 08:10 AM
68cm or around 26,7 inches which means up 0,4 inch since my last recorded length

February 2nd, 2010, 08:42 AM
According to DBF some strands are at 44 inches but the majority is at 43.5 inches still.

February 2nd, 2010, 09:59 AM
I'm at 35.5" which is the same as last month, but I also trimmed a half inch last month. I figure I grew that half inch back. I do have a few racer hairs at 36" but I'm basing my measurement on the bulk of the length.

February 2nd, 2010, 10:35 AM
1" in January, which brings me to 26"... about an inch away from where I was at when I had the horrific haircut of '09 back in April.

February 2nd, 2010, 01:01 PM
Finaly hit a neat and even 30 inches. I am also at the point where I most often find myself chopping, but this time I do not even feel the urge.

February 2nd, 2010, 01:01 PM
I'm at 22.75. I think I was 22.5 last month....so probably hormones, they were all screwed up last month.

February 2nd, 2010, 02:37 PM
I asked my SO to measure my length a couple of days ago (and take a pic which is now in my signature) - it was exactly 40".

Though maybe it grew a bit in the last 48 hrs? ;)

February 2nd, 2010, 05:23 PM
Holding at 32" - no growth this month. Perhaps it's a stall...perhaps it's terminal....only time will tell...

February 2nd, 2010, 05:33 PM
25 1/4 for Feb

February 2nd, 2010, 07:38 PM
30.5", which is up .5" from January. I need a trim though, but I'm too chicken to do it.

February 2nd, 2010, 09:21 PM
25 inches for me today. Only 1/2 inch since last month. I was hoping for 1 inch/ month, as my hair used to grow REALLY fast... guess I am slowing down in my "old" age. :-(

FINALLY found my tape measure.
36" and counting.

February 3rd, 2010, 03:27 AM
22 inches for me. A gain of 1.2 inches. Whooohooooo!

February 3rd, 2010, 09:21 AM
I'm at 23.6 inches or 60 cm. My hair's at my bra strap. Yay! I have about 4 inches or 10 cm to grow until I hit my second goal of WL. Started (sig pic) from the right at CL, chin length, August 2008, and have hit BSL February 2010. Had a few trims in between (tiny ones) and hair was also layered with the ponytail method. Thinking of maybe growing out the layers, but going towards WL first.

February 3rd, 2010, 02:44 PM
20.5", 3/4" increase from January!

February 3rd, 2010, 03:52 PM
24" when dry and curly. Plugging away.......no more trimming.

February 3rd, 2010, 04:02 PM
133 cm = 52.4 inches, which is 3 cm = 1.2 inches more than last time. But since I can't remember when last time was .... :D

February 3rd, 2010, 04:18 PM
My hair is about 19". I must measure this alone. I started letting it grow from being very short a year ago.


February 3rd, 2010, 05:00 PM
29 inches :)

February 3rd, 2010, 05:44 PM
Decided to measure this month, for once, and the measuring tape says it's 35". :) Woohoo!

February 3rd, 2010, 06:33 PM
Mine is now at 19.25" about, but that is because I got it cut back in December. I think the hairdresser took off about an inch. However, I used to measure my progress by always measuring the same random too long piece of hair, but thanks to the trim, my hair is now all the same length. I think I am growing at about 1/2" a month.

February 3rd, 2010, 07:06 PM
22.3" (56.5cm) - 0.4" increase!!!

Finally it's growing!! now i gotta go find my bottle of biotin and try to speed up my growth before the wedding...

Edit: That measurement was dry and with bun waves...i'll have to try again tomorrow when it's straight...

February 3rd, 2010, 07:49 PM
28 inches today, up an inch from my last measurement. 2 inches till waist!

DH measured this morning. 60.5 centimeters which is 1 cm. growth. I've had 2 dustings though.

February 4th, 2010, 09:17 AM
Starting in at 23.5 inches.

February 4th, 2010, 09:31 AM
I am at 20" --- an inch longer since I joined here which was towards the end of November.

February 4th, 2010, 09:34 AM
I measured 2 days ago and I am now at 58" (below knees)

I reached my 56" Goal July 15, 2009 and have trimmed a bit so I only gained 2"in the past 6 months.

February 4th, 2010, 11:06 AM
25.5"... my second month in a row of only 1/4 inch growth.

I'm noticing a lot more splits than usual so maybe I'm S&D'ing away half of my growth. Or maybe it's just a stall?

February 4th, 2010, 02:23 PM
With my own self measuring, I'm still at 28", same as the first of December. I have done some microtrimming....and I have 1" of roots showing (yes, I dye my hair)...so I'm getting growth, just not measuring added length. I've got the hemline looking good, and ends in good shape, so hopefully I'll start seeing added length from here on! I was hoping for waist by April....with two inches to go, I'm not sure I'll make it, but I'll be darned close!

February 5th, 2010, 08:50 AM
I don't know anymore, but the tips are closing in on knee length finally!

February 5th, 2010, 04:13 PM
84,6 cm/33.3 inches, up from 83,6/32.9.

February 5th, 2010, 04:34 PM
I'm at 37.5", so that's .5" of growth since last month. :)

February 5th, 2010, 11:07 PM
Most of my ends grew 0.5" to 47" length, but a few grew 1.0" to 47.5". I am sticking with 47", because those few ends that are longer would not be very visible if spread out among the rest.

Finally remembered to measure today. At 56" now, was at 55.5"

February 8th, 2010, 06:32 PM
Four inches. I haven't had it this long since some time in 2008!

February 8th, 2010, 08:14 PM
22.25.. Got a perm and lost a lot of hair. :( Next month will be better I just know it:pray:

February 9th, 2010, 05:55 AM
28 inches - I'll start measuring every month again...
