May 1st, 2008, 04:54 AM
I'm at 36" - gained " as usual and I'm back to where I was before I trimmed 1" in March

May 1st, 2008, 05:01 AM
33.25" - 0.5" growth since last month. Currently somewhere around "almost hip lenght" and "can I call this hip length" :D

May 1st, 2008, 05:20 AM
32, from 33, 5. I had a trim this month. And while I miss the length, I don't miss the condition of my ends.

May 1st, 2008, 05:37 AM
I'm sticking to 72cm atm, as I've trimmed a bit and my hair measurer is not here atm. I'm sure I'm a bit longer :)

May 1st, 2008, 06:17 AM
Still at 17". But had an inch of layers off the back, so doing pretty good.

May 1st, 2008, 06:24 AM

Up to 26 1/4" after my (very well done and very little hair cut off) trim :-)

May 1st, 2008, 07:48 AM
I'm at 37,8" inches - so another solid 0,4" (1 cm) to me :joy:
Let's see how long it continues.. (to mid-thigh, mid-thigh, mid-thigh, mid-thigh, mid-thigh, mid-thiiiiiiiigh... pleeeease, pretty please -- with sugar on top!!)

May 1st, 2008, 08:05 AM
I'm at 22", so that's another 1" of growth this past month. (just started drinking more water and taking Biotin, so that's probably helping!):)

May 1st, 2008, 08:09 AM
I don't know if i want to measure this month or not.

May 1st, 2008, 08:37 AM
Today's the first time I have measured in quite a while. I'm at 30". I had about half an inch trimmed this morning.

May 1st, 2008, 09:18 AM
22.75 after self trim, also 3.25 pony circumference.

May 1st, 2008, 09:23 AM
i hit a little over 16" so thats 1 " of growth for me, April ended my 8 months of using monistat so well see how things start to compare not using it

May 1st, 2008, 09:29 AM
about 27 inches for me.. i was 26.25 on april 5th. so ive gained 3/4 inch... it doesnt really seem like ive gained about 2 inches left until im waist again (for sure) but i should look waist in 1.5 inches... i cant wait

May 1st, 2008, 09:36 AM
I gained 1 inch this month. Went from 30.5 to 31.5 inches.

May 1st, 2008, 09:55 AM
38 inches up one inch from 1st April!:cheese:

May 1st, 2008, 10:18 AM
About 29 inches when I pull out the longest curls, and nearly 26 inches curly. That's about an inch of growth. :D

May 1st, 2008, 11:43 AM
23.5 at shortest and 24.25 at longest few hairs. Thinking about getting a 1/4 inch trim.

May 1st, 2008, 11:58 AM
15.75". I measure 15.6" a little while ago, can't remember if it was 1.5 weeks or 2...but not that long ago. :( I want it to grow.

May 1st, 2008, 01:56 PM
Whoa. 19.5" despite my 1/2" trim. That means I got a whole inch of growth this month. :disco:

May 1st, 2008, 02:20 PM
22.2". It has grown 0.6" which is what I get most months. :)

May 1st, 2008, 02:32 PM
I am a bit longer than I expected after cutting off a few inches a couple of weeks ago.

25" and a bit but I will call it 25".

May 1st, 2008, 02:40 PM
44" today - yay!

May 1st, 2008, 03:01 PM
Yay - a few determined hairs on my head have actually reached 36" - my very first original goal! Incredible..hope they stick around awhile and let the remainder catch up. Happy..but why is it we always want more??...

May 1st, 2008, 03:19 PM
37.5", up 1.4".

very little growth, maybe better luck next month.

May 1st, 2008, 03:37 PM
Mines back to 30 inches after the cut

May 1st, 2008, 03:41 PM
I'm at a solid 24" Longer than my hair has ever been! :cheese:

8) Jim

eta - 24" was a guess, based on a measurement made about three weeks ago (23.5"+) I measured again last night, and got an honest 24.5" ! Woot!

May 1st, 2008, 05:13 PM
20.25 inches, a 1.25 inch gain! I also started biotin early this month. Looks like I'll keep taking it!

May 1st, 2008, 05:25 PM
I'm at 29.5 only a half inch this month. I started mn on april 24. I hope it helps my hair grow alittle faster,:(

May 1st, 2008, 08:05 PM
I'm at 17 5/8" , which means my hair's grown 5/8" since April 21st! :joy:

May 1st, 2008, 08:41 PM
March 25 I was at 26" I have not had any growth.

Kind of sad !!! :shrug:

May 1st, 2008, 08:46 PM
My first measure: 19 inches (approx). :) I've only got...sixteen more inches to go! ^_^

May 1st, 2008, 10:06 PM
still 18 =[ has been since i started here

May 1st, 2008, 10:32 PM
Still at 46", no growth this month in the longest hairs but the other hairs are catching up, the taper moved down a bit.

55" up from 54.5" where I stalled for two months. (Trimmed in August last year according to archive forums measure-in for July and November/December. Need to check calendar.)

May 2nd, 2008, 12:06 AM
72cm LHC standard
56cm the actual hair length from the crown.
After my 1ish cm trim for May.

May 2nd, 2008, 12:46 AM
46" added another inch this month :cheese:

May 2nd, 2008, 03:05 AM
Measured in at 94,5cm (37,2"), up from 93cm (36,6"). That makes me finally go over the 37" mark I have in my profile since months :lol:

May 2nd, 2008, 06:25 AM
my second month of taking kelp and i have grown from 22.8" to a solid 24" so a growth of 1.2" for me, im over the moon!!

May 2nd, 2008, 06:26 AM
I measured 37.5" this morning. Last time I measured it was 36", but I don't remember when that was so I can't make much out of that.

I'm starting to get a lot of pressure from my wife to cut it. She's ok with it long, just not this long - so I may be loosing 6" or so soon. That tends to be the magic number that makes her happy enough and doesn't feel like too much of a loss to me.

May 2nd, 2008, 06:43 AM
I'm going to say 35". No gain since I trimmed about 3 weeks ago. :shrug:

May 2nd, 2008, 07:53 AM
after a long stall my hair grew 1.25" this month! woo hoo. I'm now at 21.5 I've been taking biotin since January and have been drinking lots of water.

May 2nd, 2008, 08:33 AM
I measured in at between 34.5 and 34.75. I think my growth is slowing a bit with my shed. :shrug:

May 2nd, 2008, 09:46 AM
26" visually. Pulled down a wee bit more I guess.

May 2nd, 2008, 10:51 AM
It's 19.7 inches now (last pic in my Fotki (link in sig below)) and I can finally do something with it. I can put it up, and most importantly of all, I can leave it wavy and I can let it airdry again overnight without it looking awful! Yay! A few layers still remain (ear length) but they will grow with time. I started growing it out from an inverted bob; it was 14 inches last year. I needed to cut it that short (I had almost BSL hair in 2006) because it had gotten damaged from bad hair dye. Took me a year to recover from it. On top of that I am also growing out my own hair color.

It's going well. Hope it stays that way!

May 2nd, 2008, 05:49 PM
Just on 29".I had a trim to even up some straggling and the ends look nice and thick now

May 2nd, 2008, 06:39 PM
The tape measure insists on 92,7 cm/36.5 inches. I disagree with it. :shrug: I trimmed back to 35.5 inches two months ago, so based on that a one inch gain since then should make perfect sense. Except pictures also disagree. So, whatever. It's growing and the ends are still looking nicer than they did before the trim. That's good enough.

May 2nd, 2008, 09:04 PM
35" this month I do hope it will get longer.

May 3rd, 2008, 07:07 AM
29", gained 1" this month!!

May 3rd, 2008, 08:10 AM
My hair has grown at least a half inch since I got it cut in march. It's got to be about6-6.5 inches by now. (I'm guessing becasue I haven't measured)

May 3rd, 2008, 09:28 AM
Only got 0.25", from 48.25" to 48.5". I do now have 3 hairs (instead of 2) that are at 48.25 (not quite even 48" last month), though...although that won't last. :lol:

I'm not too surprised, though, as this last month has been bad on the health front. :oops:

May 3rd, 2008, 09:29 AM
I measured at 32.5, so .5" of growth for me. I've been stalling and starting again all winter, so I hope that this means I'll be growing more now that it's spring.

May 3rd, 2008, 09:46 AM
Measuring in at 34" after a 3/4" trim a couple of weeks ago. No more trimming for awhile.

May 3rd, 2008, 02:23 PM
1" for me in april

May 3rd, 2008, 02:32 PM
30.25! Yay for breaking into the 30's! I did a small trim this month as well.

May 3rd, 2008, 02:50 PM
I'm at 41" or so now. The last recorded measurement was 37.5", but that as a good while back.

May 3rd, 2008, 07:32 PM
37", with some even longer. Nice and steady. :D

May 3rd, 2008, 08:31 PM
27.5, so it is 1" this month.(with major layers, however) This is the month after a cut, it grows so fast...I am not planning to cut any time soon, so I can only hope hair keeps this growth rate!

May 4th, 2008, 12:27 AM
22.4 inches...so, about 1 total inch of growth? No wonder my hair feels longer lately.

May 4th, 2008, 12:54 AM
I just decided to measure earlier today-- I got 21" even, which is about 1/2 to 1/4 inch growth in about two weeks. Right on target! Previously, I measured on the 17th or 18th. But since I'm not doing miconazole anymore, I guess I can set my own measure date without worrying about consistency!

May 4th, 2008, 01:14 AM
Ah, my first real measure-in with the standard way most seem to like here and it's nearly 15 inches :)

I had a trim a couple of weeks back but I can definitely see progress. For some reason my tips curl up a bit so I don't think I'm quite at shoulder length yet but then again, I have a short neck so the transition from chin to shoulder happens quickly :P

May 4th, 2008, 11:18 AM
I measured 36.25, I went up about 0.7 inches.

May 4th, 2008, 12:14 PM
30.1 woooho I hit the 30:cheese:

May 4th, 2008, 01:20 PM

WOO HOO! I got an inch of growth this month, now at 16 inches!!!

I found out this DHT Blocker I am using to restore the hair in the bald area also has that Chinese herb that promotes hair growth (Fo-ti or whatever it is called???)

Noiw pix yet, until the bald spot has shrunk some more (It IS doing so) but if I can get 1 foot of growth by this time next year, I will be a happy girl!

Hi Les!

Awwwww! But it is soo pretty??

Maybe that is why the SO does not like it??

Anyway, I understand, jusy wish she would allow it to stay at that length??


May 4th, 2008, 02:52 PM
Yeah! I got about an 3/4-1 inch of growth this month. At this rate I will be at BSL within 5-6 months! :cheese:

May 4th, 2008, 03:17 PM
I'm gonna have to borrow my brother's camera, so I can get a decent photo of the hair progress. :)

May 4th, 2008, 03:45 PM
Gained about half an inch :)

May 4th, 2008, 07:10 PM
I just measured today, and I'm offically at 50"!!!

That's 4" since last June.

May 4th, 2008, 08:23 PM
I barely gained a 1/4 inch. 22. 75 Barely. Now I know why I didn't want to measure this month.

May 4th, 2008, 08:30 PM
I'm at 24"! Must have forgotten to measure last month, since I know my hair can't have grown 2 whole inches.
Yay, I'm getting closer to waist!

May 4th, 2008, 08:35 PM
34.75" this month, which is up .75" from April. Also: 34.5 is tailbone, which was my first real goal! (see siggy for happydance!) heading for classic and beyond...

May 4th, 2008, 09:17 PM
:( I seemed to be stalled at 34 inches. Maybe with summer coming on I'll get a growth spurt.:shrug:

May 5th, 2008, 12:56 AM
I'm at 33" this month. I'm hoping to be solidly hip by June, but unless I start my summer growth, I'm not sure I'll get there...

May 5th, 2008, 07:20 PM
62 cm; the last I remember was 64, before the crash. But it's getting thicker at the back, and there's enough hair that I can cross the two sides, twisted, behind my head and secure each with a Mini Max behind the ear. I think the Buff did it. ;)

May 6th, 2008, 12:12 PM
34.25"... That's half an inch from last month. But... visually I can see that it has grown, so I'm confused... Oh well.

harley mama
May 6th, 2008, 12:25 PM
No growth this month. I am still at 34". But, I still have hair so, I'm not whining!

May 6th, 2008, 12:56 PM
I'm at 21".
My personal hair measure person measured 55 cm and I measured 53 cm. We called it even at 54 cm.:cool:

May 6th, 2008, 12:58 PM
I measured when I joined LHC, in mid-April, so I wasn't going to measure at all until June . . .

But then I did. And apparently I've gained an inch in two weeks. I don't believe it! But perhaps I mis-measured the first time . . . anyway, I am definitely now at 26"

May 6th, 2008, 02:10 PM
75 cm, so 29,5", right?

May 12th, 2008, 04:57 AM
27 Inches on May 7, 08. have not trimmed or cut in 10 months. feels weird not cutting hair but decided to try not cutting for 1 year and see the difference between often trims and no trims. so far ends feel alright despite some breakage at mid-length due to knots tearing while being brushed.

May 12th, 2008, 06:07 AM
30.5, so i had .5 inches of growth last month!
