View Full Version : My 2nd anniversary, almost 3 years of growing and no trimming and almost 1000 posts!

Who would have believed it!!!!

First of all, I'd like to say thank you for everything I have learned from all of you (and not only about hair care!)
And, special thanks for everyone who's been tolerating my awful English! I love you all!:flowers:

And, now, the pics:

This was me at November 2007:

Right after these photos were taken, I started hennaing, first with Lush Caca Brun, than with BAQ henna and indigo. I was so thrilled with the condition of my hair afterwards that I decided to grow my hair as long as possible!

Here's my hair as of August 2008, when I first joined the LHC:

And here's my hair as of few days ago ( for the one on the right, I combed wet, just to see how it looked, the left one is my hair right out of a cinnabun)

As you can see, my ends look a bit weird since I didn't trim a slightest bit during past year and during 2009. I only did a few micro trims, nothing else. I still can not decide what to do next, to start trimming or not, I mean, my ends are healthy and soft but sometimes they just don't look like fairytale ends, they look like medusa ends:

And, finally, cake for everyone:

( ahem, it's not a cake actually, it's bread but it's delicious with :cheese:)

August 11th, 2010, 12:36 PM
Wow, your hair has grown so much! Hooray!

I like the funny face you superimposed onto yourself! And the bread looks yummy!

Is it a bread for special occasions, or do you eat such pretty bread every day?

August 11th, 2010, 12:36 PM
Phenomenal! You have very pretty hair, I hope you are enjoying the reward of your patience and care! :cheer:

August 11th, 2010, 12:36 PM
Delicious cake... hm... bread with cheese!

STUNNING GROWTH! It's so inspiring to see your pictures compared- short hair and long hair:)
Don't be so critical. Your ends are ok! :)

Oh! Almost forgotten! Where did you buy the purple lipliner? ;););)

August 11th, 2010, 12:38 PM
Ummmmmm, bread! It looks wonderful.

Your hair looks pretty nice, too. Good growth.

August 11th, 2010, 12:38 PM
Thanks, chopandchange,

Your "cake bread" looks divine, and I will indeed help myself to a piece!:cake:

Did you apply henna always on whole head or only on roots?

August 11th, 2010, 03:07 PM
Excellent growth, and thanks for the :yumm: :D

your hair is beautiful, congratulations!

August 11th, 2010, 03:40 PM
Wow, your hair's grown so much! I'm sitting here telling myself you're either (a) really short or (b) shortish and very leggy, because otherwise I'll just be envious of your fast growth :lol:

It's so shiny, too!

August 11th, 2010, 04:02 PM
Congrats on your hairiversary - cestitke! :flowers:

Your hair looks great, and I don't think there's anything wrong with Medusa ends... Of course, I might be slightly biased there, as I have them! ;)

August 11th, 2010, 04:14 PM
congratulations! You have gotten wonderful growth and condition in the past three years. I love it!! :)

August 11th, 2010, 04:17 PM
Wow, that's amazing growth! Congrats! :cheer: :cheese:

August 11th, 2010, 04:43 PM
Amazing growth, and your hair looks fantastic! "Medusa" would never have entered my mind to describe your ends, I don't think you need to worry about them. Instead, celebrate your anniversary and enjoy that delicious-looking cakebread!

August 11th, 2010, 06:07 PM
Awesome hair and bread :D

August 11th, 2010, 06:18 PM
Pretty! Congrats!

Wow - from those pics I would say that you never really had an awkward stage when growing out your pixie - it looks great. Congrats on your growth.

August 11th, 2010, 07:54 PM
You most definitely inspire me! I hope you're loving your healthy hair, it is so beautiful

Thank you, Melikai, the pleasure was mine :)

Your hair grew a lot in one year. It looks great! And, I actually like the look of your ends quite a lot. It just suits you and the natural wave and motion of your hair for some reason.

September 6th, 2010, 08:01 PM
Holy smokes i didnt realize you started so short and wow that is ALOT of great healthy growth and shine to envy :D! I know im a bit late but congratulations on all the hard work and patience :flowers: .

September 6th, 2010, 08:09 PM
Beautiful hair! You have the two things I want most- waist length hair and bread! :)

September 6th, 2010, 08:11 PM
Such awesome growth ! The pics are really amazing, especially when you see how short it was to start !! Thanks for sharing - and that is the yummiest looking bread I have ever seen :)

September 6th, 2010, 08:40 PM
Very nice! ... definitely gives me HOPE! Congrats!

September 6th, 2010, 09:05 PM
Wow! That seems like fast growth to me. Looks lovely.
