View Full Version : One Year Anniversary - Whoo Hoooo!!

May 28th, 2010, 04:57 PM
Yes, I've been a member here for a whole year now... crazy. :cheese:

I didn't really start posting until August; like so many others, I just sort of hung back in the shadows for a while. Once I got started, though, look out! :D

I wish I had a picture from the day I joined, but I also didn't take my first proper length short until August. I was just past shoulder...

Here's one from September that's a little better quality...

This is just a few months ago, in February...

And... drumroll.... This is today, May 28, 2010, at headed-toward-BSL-and-loving-every-inch!! I believe I'm at 24.5 inches now. :thumbsup:

I'm so grateful for everything I learned about hair here, and for all the wonderful people I've met. I hope to be around for a long time, as I work toward my goal of gorgeous long hair!

Lots of love to you all. :flowers:

Thank you adiapalic, jaine, and Feng-Shui!!

Yes, I henna. I started off with an orangey tint, which has progressively become redder and redder over time. Right now the ends are still tinted just a bit from some Hot Hot Pink Manic Panic I used a while back, too. Fun! :D

Thank you melikai, Loreley, Tangerine, and FrannyG!!!! (Say that sentence out loud-- it sounds really cool, lol!)

That particular stick came to me in the Holiday Gift Exchange, as a gift from our own Presto! I have a pair of them, and I adore them. I even have a fork that matches the sticks. There's a pic of the whole package in my albums. :)

What TREMENDOUS progress you've made in such a short time -- congratulations!! :toast: Your hair looks gorgeous!! As others have mentioned, that is an adorable hair stick in your last pic. Is that one that you made or is it a particular artisan's? What is the wood?

May 29th, 2010, 05:32 PM
Thank you, Naters and Pixna!!! I'm getting absolutely full of myself, hee hee... Terrible. :p

I mentioned in another post that I got the stick (and its mate) from Presto in the gift exchange, but I don't know if she made them herself or had them made. I was given a choice of woods, so I'm leaning toward thinking they're her own handiwork... :)

And although I chose the wood from a few pictures of samples, I can't for the life of me remember what I chose! Typical of my memory, lol. :D

May 29th, 2010, 05:35 PM
Awesome growth and congratulations! I love your thickness and waves.....
