It's now been 3 years since I've found this wonderful community, and although I haven't been too active on here lately I want to thank everyone for the kind words and encouragement I've received. I would not be enjoying my head of hair without you all.

And now, for the obligatory pictures!

The day I joined LHC, back in 2007.

My 1 year anniversary.

2 years!

And now, 3 years! This was taken a few moments ago. I do seem to have lost some thickness in the ends, but that's inevitable.

I'm getting close to classic length, though it's hard to tell since I wear long and baggy shirts. I'm probably going to trim an inch pretty soon here, due to an ever growing number of splits. Over all though I'm real happy, and I can't wait to see where I'm at this time next year!

What wonderful hair and progress, Shadow Walker! I have some serious hair envy here . . .

I hope 3 years of TLC and LHC will give me as spectacular results as yours.

awesome progress - I can't believe how much it has grown AND you have such nicely trimmed blunt ends - I feel like I traded in length this year for trimming - it looks like you got the best of both worlds! nice!

I'm getting close to classic length, though it's hard to tell since I wear long and baggy shirts. (snip)

Thank you. I will now have Men in Tights (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pc1am3KyYgA) stuck in my head for the remainder of the evening. How or why I immediately made that connection I'll never know.

But at any rate, :thumbsup:
