View Full Version : June Measure In!

June 1st, 2010, 12:21 AM
After my one-inch-a-month streak, I think it's at between .5 to .75 inch growth from last month.

It's hard to see the back of my head. I'll ask DH for sure and then edit if necessary.

How did everyone else do?

ETA: ok, DH remeasured, and it turns out that the shortest layers are at 21, so that's half an inch growth for me

June 1st, 2010, 12:46 AM
Virgin Hair: 8.5-9 inches in some areas (0.5 to 1 inch growth since last month)

Total Length [natural]: 41.5 inches

Bulk of Hair [natural]: Between 36 - 38 inches.

Total Length [waves pulled straight]: 43-44 inches at very tippy-tip

Thanks to my V-shaped hair, it's hard to just give one measurement. ;)

June 1st, 2010, 02:51 AM
I had 2 cms growth in May, my hair was 45.5" long. But I cut an inch 2 days ago so I'm at 44.5" again. I hate losing length but I want to thicken my ends.

June 1st, 2010, 02:53 AM
It's my first proper measure so I've got nothing to compare. It's 28.4 inches, about 72 centimeters:) Sounds cool.

June 1st, 2010, 03:16 AM
I'm at 94.5cm (37.2''), only 0.2'' growth this month...

June 1st, 2010, 04:08 AM
Woohoo! In six months, I have had 5 inches growth, meaning about .8" a month! That is what I call progress! :)

June 1st, 2010, 04:23 AM
41.5 almost back to 42" whoo hoo.

June 1st, 2010, 04:27 AM
39" with some stragglers going as far as 41". 10" to go to my goal length.

June 1st, 2010, 05:19 AM
36 and a half inches. I was hoping for 37" now the warmer weather has kicked in, but at least I know I've had half an inches growth this month. :)

June 1st, 2010, 05:45 AM
I measured in at 25.25 inches, showing 1/2 inch of growth this month. My hair has grown 6.25 inches since June 1 of last year, after 4 trims. :disco:

June 1st, 2010, 05:48 AM
30.75", which puts me ever so much closer to my goal. I self trimmed off about 1/2" a few days ago, so I would have had about 1/2" of growth in a month.

June 1st, 2010, 05:54 AM
74cm. That amounts to three centimetres of growth in the last month!

(Now I need to hide the tape measure somewhere I won't find it for a month. The number of times I've caught myself measuring in the last couple of weeks is quite ridiculous, and it certainly isn't going to make my hair grow any faster! :D )

June 1st, 2010, 06:43 AM
82 cm, so that's 1 cm (1/2 inch) of growth, which is normal. 82 cm is official waist for me, but my last trim was 7 month ago, so I might do a little trim this month.

June 1st, 2010, 09:30 AM
I've had a slow month. I'm at 29 inches, which is about 1/3 inch this month. I have 1/4 inch of roots from henna that I did three weeks ago. Oh well, maybe I'll get some nicer growth next month.

June 1st, 2010, 09:34 AM
I'm at 27" this month I was 25" back in March so I been growing an inch a month. :pray: just two more inches to I am waist.

June 1st, 2010, 09:37 AM
37.5 inches

June 1st, 2010, 10:39 AM
I didnt really measure after my most recent trim..but I did yesterday and I got 19" curly and 20" pulled straight.. picture is on my avatar and larger in my album...I took it a bit early because I was taking henndigo pictures and just wanted to take my June pic atr the same time to be done with it..lol

Still 0 in the most part however, there is some very fine white baby hair coming through in places not seen before. The hair in patches is curling well and is about 2 inches long (later this will have to be cut to match the rest, but I keep it just to remind the rest what to do).

June 1st, 2010, 11:53 AM
I hardly ever post in these threads but I'm somewhat thrilled today to find out I am at 30"!!! This seems so long to me. I have never had my hair this long before. Woo hoo. 30". Hee hee. Planning to trim little bits to maintain at waist and tidy up the ends before attempting to reach hip.

June 1st, 2010, 11:55 AM
First measurement in a long time: 39.5 inches.

The 4 inches that I had trimmed in mid-January are back already! My ends are still in good shape so no need to trim. Color me happy; all growth is mine to keep.

June 1st, 2010, 11:56 AM
31.25" this month, so not quite back to my length a year ago, but I'm in much better condition. I should go do a 1 year anniversary post.:)

June 1st, 2010, 12:04 PM
I just measured it again and it's 38.5. I give up! I don't know how long it is.

June 1st, 2010, 01:47 PM
DH measured 30. So I'm pretty sure 32 will be solid waist/hip.

June 1st, 2010, 02:15 PM
77 cm, 30.4 inches :) I didn't gain anything since I trimmed. But I am very happy with my hair now, because I AM A REDHEAD AGAIN :D
...well, I also have an orange forehead, and orange nails...but it was worth it :D

June 1st, 2010, 02:56 PM
33.5 inches, half inch of growth from last month. Slowly edging toward tailbone!!

June 1st, 2010, 03:05 PM
22", up another half-inch. Blah... BSL can't come soon enough.

June 1st, 2010, 08:57 PM
18 inches, I'm up 1/2 inch.

June 1st, 2010, 11:25 PM
29 inches so a little more then 1 inch growth since the first of april

June 1st, 2010, 11:45 PM
I've come down to 5/8" this month. Back to my normal level of growth. Maybe there is some truth to the "it grows faster after you have it cut" saying.

June 1st, 2010, 11:58 PM
28". I was at 28.5" mid May, but had to trim off some damage... hope to get some growth back this month.

June 2nd, 2010, 12:40 AM
26.5 inches this month. Poo, only half an inch last month. :(

June 2nd, 2010, 01:58 AM
I grew about 1" this month, which is pretty normal for me, but I also trimmed ~1/2". I think I'm going to plan on trimming 1/4"-1/2" once every 3 months (4 times/year) from now on, to keep my hemline strait and my ends (somewhat) thick.
My total length after the trim is 27 inches! I'm almost at waist; I think at 28-29" I'll definitely be there, but I'm going to call it at 30", where the bulk of my hair will be firmly at waist. I hoping to make it by the end of the summer, start of school in the fall!

Good luck to everyone!

June 2nd, 2010, 02:54 AM
Actually managed to gain half an inch, looks like, even though I was trying to maintain at 48" to gain thickness......so 48.5" for me. :)

June 2nd, 2010, 03:25 AM
JamieLeigh, your avatar makes me giggle every time I see it. Just wanted to share how much I like it.

June 2nd, 2010, 03:52 AM
Still at 32 inches when I lay the tape over my head and look in the mirror, but I'm now at 34" stretched along the tape

June 2nd, 2010, 06:14 AM
26" - Woo Hoo!

It's my longest :D and just 2 months before my wedding, I'm happy with the length.

Though not as happy as I was in the dream I just realized I had last night, where I was at waist and my hair was thicker. Sigh...

June 2nd, 2010, 06:51 AM
I went from 27in to 27.5 in 2 weeks last month. I hope that means 1in a month!!!! If it does I will be at waist by mid August!

Just remeasured with damp hair after washing, (same as first measurement) and I am at 28.25, That would make an 1.25 inch in 3 weeks! Unbelievable!

June 2nd, 2010, 07:08 AM
22 5/8" from 22"! woot!

June 2nd, 2010, 07:20 AM
22 5/8" from 22" WOOT ! :cheese:

June 2nd, 2010, 07:42 AM
I gained an inch, bringing me to 19"!


June 2nd, 2010, 12:13 PM
I'm at 26.25'' up from 25.5'' at the beginning of May.

June 2nd, 2010, 02:14 PM
36 and a half inches! My hair is going through a mad growth spurt, an inch in the last month instead of my usual half inch. I credit this community :)

June 2nd, 2010, 02:27 PM
39.5" ... up 1/2 an inch. :) Almost back to my 40"!

June 2nd, 2010, 02:38 PM
68 cm that gave me a inch growth :) This was my first monthly measure ever and it's really nice to see the progress in numbers rather then thinking your hair hasn't changed at all :P I love this site!!!

June 2nd, 2010, 05:51 PM
Sitting at 23.4 inches right now but I'm getting a trim this afternoon. So i will probably be back to 22.5 inches.

June 2nd, 2010, 06:19 PM
I'm at 19 1/2 inches. yay.

June 2nd, 2010, 07:25 PM
37.75 inches this month. Little growth spurt I think due to really warm weather. Up 0.75 inches this month because of it.

June 2nd, 2010, 07:39 PM
24 inches:cheese: (stretched at the longest layer)!!! I think that's at least 1 inch this month. The "main" part of my hair is probably around 23", which I'm still so happy with. Unhappily, looks more like APL when not stretched LOL.

June 2nd, 2010, 07:45 PM
42 inches and officially classic :)

June 2nd, 2010, 08:47 PM
I grew 5/8", so I'm up to 23 1/4. So close to APL it hurts...me and my long neck!

June 2nd, 2010, 08:56 PM
42 inches and officially classic :)

Wow, windinherhair - your hair is amazing!! Very pretty. :)

June 2nd, 2010, 09:15 PM
My longest is at 24 inches. Seems like it is growing very slow last couple of months. could be the birth control I took last month, made me feel crazy. so take my hair vitamins everyday.

June 2nd, 2010, 11:57 PM
I only got .25 inches May so I'm at 24.5. It's not a bad length, but I was hoping to get a bit more back after my April cut.

June 3rd, 2010, 02:08 AM
Still around 30.5", maybe 30.75" but I didn't trim this month. . . . I can only attribute my lack of growth to S+D'ing. I gained MAYBE a quarter inch.

I really need to start taking breakage seriously and get more consistent about my hair before bed. I woke up last week to DBF responding to my screams with, "you need to get a sleep cap!" and begrudgingly rolling himself off my hair. . . .

June 3rd, 2010, 04:41 AM
I didn't measure last month so imagine how happy I was when DBF told me it was 29 inches!!!

June 3rd, 2010, 02:04 PM
26 inches =]

June 3rd, 2010, 02:08 PM
I measured three times and every time it came out to 23.25"!! =D It really has grown! It doesn't look like it, but the numbers show otherwise. My last measurement was at the end of March at 22.5". 3/4" in two months with a trim that took off about 1/4 to 1/2 an inch in there somewhere. I'll take it. BSL, here I come!!

June 3rd, 2010, 04:00 PM
I'm a newbie...joined in a couple months ago, so this is my first measure in! 25" which is +1" for about 2 months! and I've just started taking biotin so hopefully less shedding :)

June 3rd, 2010, 06:51 PM
36" -- if I remember correctly I was 35" last month at measure in!!!! That's 1" this past month. I am now taking thyroid medication and I believe it has made a difference in my hair.... a wonderful side-effect wouldn't you say? :cheese:

June 3rd, 2010, 09:45 PM
27 inches!

I've been shedding like crazy though.

June 4th, 2010, 03:59 AM
Still growing at a solid 0.5'', which puts me at 39.5''. Haven't noticed a winter slowdown (yet!).

June 4th, 2010, 06:55 AM
Before my monthly trim, I measured 35.25 inches, but I ended up taking almost 1/2 inch off this time (instead of the usual 1/4 inch), so I'm calling it 34.75 inches for this month.

June 4th, 2010, 10:45 AM
37.5!!! Yea!!!!

June 4th, 2010, 10:51 AM
My hair has grown 1/2 inch, putting me at 23 inches and 6 inches away from BSL!

June 4th, 2010, 11:03 AM
I haven't measured consistently, so I'll use this measurement as a jumping off point. Right now I am at 17 3/4 inches.

June 5th, 2010, 08:54 AM
I grew another half inch, I'm now at 29.25. It looks like I only have about another half inch or so to waist :)

June 5th, 2010, 09:05 AM
I'm at 34" or 1" past waist :)

June 5th, 2010, 09:33 AM
My length is now 25.7 " :)

June 5th, 2010, 01:37 PM
I don't think I'm super accurate when I measure myself, but I'm around 23 inches now. So I think I am averaging at the typical 1/2 inch per month.

Grow, grow, grow!!

June 5th, 2010, 01:54 PM
Last month (may 5`th) I was at 26.8 inches.
Yesterday I measured 27,4

So a growth of 0,6 inches in one month, is that ok I wonder? I don`t know what everybody else usually grows but..:o.

Anyway, I am fairly happy with that I guess...

Kelli Kat
June 6th, 2010, 01:44 PM
26.5 which is a 1/2 inch growth for me, plus I trimmed a bit of the ends so the growth is actually a little more.

Jessica Trapp
June 6th, 2010, 05:31 PM
42 inches! :cheese: I'm right at "can I call this classic" and getting close to my hair goal. I really, really appreciate all the help I've gotten from LHC.


June 6th, 2010, 07:10 PM
I'm back to 33.5 inches!:joy: I think it's closer to 34 because it is reaching new milestones (lowrise jeans belt). Slowly creeping along. Slow and steady wins the race... I'll just keep tellig myself that:lol:

June 6th, 2010, 08:12 PM
Plodding along at 1/2 in per month. 26" and finally starting to feel 'longish'.

June 6th, 2010, 08:26 PM
Slow but steady progress. I'm now at 34", and my hemline is better than it has ever been at this length.

June 6th, 2010, 08:29 PM
I only got about 0.25" of length increase, but it looks like I have a lot of new baby hairs also (I had a lot of shedding this winter).

June 7th, 2010, 11:24 AM
30.5" I can't remember what my last measurement was, but I think I got some growth.:)

June 7th, 2010, 02:30 PM
19"! Very exciting...it's starting to seem "long" now, as it reaches just past my shoulder :)

June 8th, 2010, 03:06 AM
28. In the last 3 months i have only gained a rediculous half a cm each month. I must have the slowest growing hair in the world.

June 8th, 2010, 03:07 PM
I'm still at 27"....i dusted my ends this past weekend...hopefully by the end of August i can be 28 or 29...that would be great!! :D

June 9th, 2010, 12:37 PM
43.5" Half an inch of growth.

June 9th, 2010, 02:33 PM
I think I'm 10", but not sure. Bah! Too short! Hurry up apl/bsl!

June 10th, 2010, 09:22 PM
30.5!! I was stoked when I measured today. I hadn't in a while and definitely wasn't expecting it! So I have gained 1.5 inches since April.

June 14th, 2010, 10:44 AM
I am so exited! Although I had a micro trim in May I am finally out of the teens measuring 20 1/4 inch :cheese:

Two and half inch more and I will be a solid APL (dry and curly)!

My hair is finally starting to look long and I love it, love it , love it. Soon I can say "goodbye, adios, arrivederci and Auf Wiedersehn awkward lenght".

Never again will I have my hair shorter than APL. From chin to shoulder to APL just takes too long.

June 14th, 2010, 10:55 AM

I feel the same!! I'm still at 19.5 inches. I can't stand it. It's taking forever to grow....:(

I can't wait to get to APL.

June 15th, 2010, 05:39 AM
Finally I'm growing again! 26.75"

In the past 6 months I've grown a total of 2.75" so I guess I'm just a little below average overall.

June 15th, 2010, 06:39 AM
I'm at 15". I measured about 9 days ago and had it at 14.75", so I've grown a fourth of an inch in about 9-10 days. That's pretty exciting. My goal is only at 19", though, so I don't have super long to wait for my goal. :dance:
