Hi everyone :)

My poor long-suffering dad has had to put up with my hair-obsession for the last few months as I have been off work sick with chronic fatigue/post viral fatigue syndrome (feeling well at present, hope it lasts!!)

Anyway I just went into the kitchen where he was kindly making me a cup of tea and, holding my head as straight as I could asked him where on my back my hair ended (I haven't ever bothered to measure it properly). He said it's just below my armpits.

I was so pleased, as I thought I was still somewhere between shoulder-length and APL :cheese:

So I can now officially join the 'Calling all who are growing ASL to BSL length thread' LOL

Yippee :eek:! (And bless my dad for putting up with me...:cool:)

Congrats! I remember when reaching apl I felt like now I can finally start doing stuff with my hair that isn't a pony or a weird bun. Good luck on growing to bsl!

Thanks Tinti!

I still have some layers to contend with which limits me slightly but actually the shortest layers are at shoulder-length pretty much, so that's not too bad :bounce:

Congratulations! I'm glad your Dad is as patient as my dear Husband and my son, both of whom have either measured or taken photos for me. :) Thank goodness for our loved ones and their patience with our hair obsessions!
