Well havent updated my length for a LONG time.
i have had a baby who is almost 2 now and moved to Australia from the UK, so its been a while and my hair got neglected.

I didnt henna for almost 3 yrs too and did streaks tonight with a streak cap and saw how long it had grown....

Wow! Your hair is beautiful, and your faerie tats are too. :D Congratulations on your wee babe. I chopped my hair off from BSL to SL then CL then pixie, all within a few days when my dd was about 1 or so... did it on a whim 'cause it was driving me crazy and god forbid if I accidently forgot to put it up out of the way of little mittens... *yank* :p The worst part of all that was that I had -finally- gotten my natural hair grown out long (long to me), and then I went and jacked it all up. :p

Anyway... It's fantastic that you were able to grow yours out. I was too wimpy to do it, heh. I didn't come here often at all after dd was born, and I'm sure that would've helped a ton. I averaged 90 seconds a day or so online up until a few months ago, and my daughter is 4.3 now. :p Now I have tons of time and I'm totally addicted to LHC again. :pumpkin: I'm growing my hair out again and not even trimming for a long time (which is huge for me, cause my biggest problem has always been my beloved shears *trim-trim*), and I know how to do it this time. Plus, I'm older now and know that I won't let myself get obsessive about it like I was before, heh. Well, thanks for letting me babble to you about myself... just a little mind therapy for me, and your post kicked it off. :p Your hair is really lovely though, and looks great. I am very impressed and inspired. :D

P.S. (This is a letter, after all) Are those Cicely Mary Barker fairies? :D I've been wanting to get tattoos of them since we got our first book. The illustrations are just beautiful. I love how a couple of the fairies look just like my dd when she was 1, 2 and now, also. Pretty sweet. :D

Your hair is gorgeous! What a beautiful length. I love the color that the henna made it, I've got to try that someday.

Wow, you hair didn't *grow* or anything, did it!!! ;)

Sometimes the nicest things happen when you're busy doing something else. Benign neglect worked for me, looks like it worked for you as well.

Your hair is lovely, the red glints are striking.

Wonderful progress and beautiful color. Your tattoo is a great gauge for your hair length and I love the fairies too! Also love Amy Brown's artwork. Pennyroyal, I would like to see your Amy Brown tattoo. Of course, if it's on your bum or somewhere else private I would understand your not wanting to show it...lol.

Thanks for sharing the rest of your tattoos, fairystar. They are awesome. Pennyroyal, I looked in your album and really like the artwork you have tattoed, as well as many of her pieces. I plan on doing a cross stitch version of her "Faery Bride".
