View Full Version : New Length (pictures)

July 23rd, 2010, 09:46 PM
So, after going through a nice shed due to stress recently, it seems losing all of that hair did not slow down my growth! It is SO VERY true, that if you forget about measuring, and stressing over growth, it seems to grow faster!

And just to take a look back, for those of you who do not know me, this is when I started LHC in 2006:

Then in October of 2009, this is where I was at (shiny due to camera flash and henna). This was waist:


Flash forward to February of 2010. You can see loss of hair, especially towards ends. I called this tailbone, when it was pulled down:


Now, for today. This is after I took it down from my *slanty bun*-ha. I have the blown out length shot in my photo albums, but since my other pics have the waves and frizz~
You can tell the ends are getting scraggly looking. I still have not cut, but I'm thinking about it.


Just wanted to shout out to everyone here... THANK YOU! I would have NEVER gotten to this length without the support and friendship here. :beerchug: :cloud9:

ETA: Wow, just noticed the red tag on my jeans... it really did grow! Woot!

Even with the hairloss, it looks like you have a lot of hair, and it's gorgeous too! It doesn't like like you need cutting to me, perhaps a small trim only but not much :)

Gorgeous hair Paniscus, as a finey I always have major thick hair envy. Keep on growing and no, I didn't see any noticeable reduction in volume due to your shed, but I was enjoying the pretty...:thudpile:

Beautiful hair and amazing growth! The "scraggly ends" you speak of really are not noticeable. Your hair is gorgeous!

July 24th, 2010, 09:47 AM
Absolutely gorgeous!

July 24th, 2010, 09:54 AM
Beautiful! I like your henna color too, it looks natural.

I was a similar length to you, I just got back from trimming a few inches off. It feels good!

July 24th, 2010, 11:26 AM
looks good.. :thud:

July 24th, 2010, 11:28 AM
Wow! Your hair did a lot of growing in the last few months!!! :cheese:It looks absolutley beautiful & i am suffering from massive envy right now! ;)

July 24th, 2010, 12:16 PM
Wow, your hair is growing fast! And the color is amazing :)

July 24th, 2010, 12:44 PM
I'm blushing here!!! :blushing: Thank you guys!!! Gives me more reason NOT to cut (maybe trim).

Like others who post such threads, I'm glad that I *may* be able to help someone who is currently on the shorter side and waiting for their hair to grow. It will happen! Enjoy the length you're at, and before you know it, you'll be posting a thread like this as well.

Still though... could not have happened without LHC. You guys really know how to boost someone's ego (and unfortunately, with this divorce, I need it!!)

Thank you all! :flowers:

Wow, your hair is wonderful! That's some awesome growth!

It's interesting that your hair didn't show it's curl until APL+ my hair looses any slight bodywave I have the longer it grows.

July 24th, 2010, 03:54 PM
So beautiful and inspiring that you can get so much growth in such a short time!! Woo hoodle!

July 24th, 2010, 04:01 PM
Great growth! :blossom: :toast:

July 24th, 2010, 04:06 PM
Oh Paniscus, you've come a long way, baby!!! :blossom: I remember when you first joined. Your hair is truly gorgeous. Thank you so much for the inspiration. :flowers:

July 24th, 2010, 05:28 PM
Beautiful! Your hair has grown so much! :cheer:

July 24th, 2010, 06:02 PM
Wow! So thick and shiny! :flower:

Oh, the curl/waves were there when it was shorter, but I always used the blow dryer on it. If I didn't, it would really frizz up and go wonky on me. As my hair has gotten longer, I've actually lost some waviness (when air dried).
