View Full Version : September 2010 - Measure In!

August 31st, 2010, 07:49 PM
Here we go!!! :)

I measured at 40.5" (gained 1/2"). I will be putting away the measuring tape for three months, maybe four. Hopefully my ignorance will inspire my head to grow some hair. LOL

August 31st, 2010, 07:58 PM
37.5" I've gained half an inch this month, maybe a tiny bit more. Yay! It finally feels like my hair is growing.

August 31st, 2010, 08:05 PM
Eeee, I've been restraining myself from measuring for a month, so I won't obsess about not seeing any growth (the watched pot principle :laugh:). I can't measure until the10th! But I'm subscribing so I'll remember to come back.

August 31st, 2010, 09:11 PM
30 inches and 5 more to goal length!! :p

August 31st, 2010, 09:23 PM
40 inches! Almost at goal, probably another good three inches to go.

I'm at approximately 25.5 inches, so another solid half inch in August.

I was noticing that I'm actually a lot closer to "waist" (smallest part of the torso) than I thought. I can credit having a collapsed disc for an extremely short torso; at least there's some silver lining. ;) Waist, then, is somewhere around 29 inches, so maybe another four solid months if my hair continues to cooperate. I would call waist my "mid-term" goal; what I considered waist before LHC was closer to the waistband of my jeans, which do sit a bit further down on my hip, and I've always wanted my hair to be at least that long. My ultimate goal would probably be tailbone, and then we'll see from there. But it's nice to have a solid goal within spittin' distance! :D

August 31st, 2010, 10:13 PM
For once I have growth!! A bit less than half an inch :D :D :D Taking me to 34" and only 2 more till TB.... which may still take me up to 7 months.... grow hair groww!!

August 31st, 2010, 10:17 PM
Why not... it's been years since I posted a measurement here at LHC. Just trimmed on this last day of August so I am back at 28 inches. But... I hope I can hold out and not trim again :hmm: well at least for one year.

Still at O scalp wise, but I do have some wonderful eyelash regrowth - Im not sure if its caused by the new meds Im on, will discuss it with Dr next week.

September 1st, 2010, 03:15 AM
I measured at 29,0 inches. No growth this month:(

September 1st, 2010, 03:26 AM
I'm back at 45 inches! At the end of July I trimmed an inch and it grew back in a month! YAY!!! :cheese::joy::happydance:

September 1st, 2010, 03:29 AM
28 inches :) only 3 away from waist!!

September 1st, 2010, 03:31 AM
I measured 77cm last night (that's 30 inches, or maybe just a smidgeon over?). About 1cm of growth in the last month or so.

I'm now putting the tape measure away until 31 December. If a watched pot never boils, perhaps it's also true that a measured tress never grows? I need to just put it up and forget it and stop obsessing over it. :)

September 1st, 2010, 03:45 AM
31 inches.

its pretty much been growing half an inch a month. 5 inches to tailbone (so this time next year)

September 1st, 2010, 05:20 AM
I just measured a few days ago....I'll wait closer to the end of Sept to measure again...I aint obsessing though, it'll grow or it won't.

September 1st, 2010, 06:34 AM
36". I gained 3/4 inch but the dusting took off some so I am at 36.

I swear I had 2" to TBL at 34", but it still looks like I need 2 more inches for TBL!

September 1st, 2010, 06:45 AM
Here I am! And I have good news for my lenght: 70 cm, that means...WAIST!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D

September 1st, 2010, 07:01 AM
I'm at 52 cm. Don't know about inch :o 6 more cm to go to apl :cheese:

September 1st, 2010, 07:11 AM
28". I had one little segment at 28.25". Cut off the .25".1" solid this month. Waist wet, but still a couple of inches to go dry.

September 1st, 2010, 07:12 AM
I went from 25 inches to 26 inches during August. It must be the summer growth spurt thing, because my hair usually doesn't grow that fast. The ends are looking pretty nice too, so I'm not going to trim this month like I usually do.

Dance time! :cheese:

September 1st, 2010, 07:46 AM
I measured a little more then a week ago and it was just a "hair" over 21.5" (up from 21" at the begining of AUG.)

i will be calling that my Sept. measurement and waiting for Oct, to measure again AND take pics...(That is if I hold off on getting the microbraids for the time beeing :)

September 1st, 2010, 07:48 AM
i started to use monistat this month... i am very nervous, since i don't want to experience the shedding... but i desperately want to get some growth!

September 1st, 2010, 08:00 AM
My hair grew half an inch, maybe a tiny bit more! Yay! I'm at 20.5" now.

September 1st, 2010, 09:09 AM
32.5" - I should reach waist before the end of the year :)

September 1st, 2010, 09:50 AM
Almost 1 inch this month :) I usually have only 1/2 inch a month, so I'm a happy girl. I'm at 31" now.

September 1st, 2010, 10:04 AM
Measured this morning at 31".

September 1st, 2010, 10:14 AM
Sep -grew 1/2 am at 17.5

September 1st, 2010, 11:04 AM
I measured 20" today! I think I grew a whole inch this month, it's hard to believe!

Only my entire hair length over again to go... :)

September 1st, 2010, 11:27 AM
Ok, first measurement, now that my pixie is officially a one-length bob (as of Jul. 19, but wanted to do my measurements on the first of the month for simplicity's sake).

And I'm at 14.75" Now time to see what my growth rate actually is!

September 1st, 2010, 12:13 PM
44.9"=classic on me!

September 1st, 2010, 12:18 PM
45.25". Up from 1.25" from July.

September 1st, 2010, 01:25 PM
Well, I don't really have a measuring tape for this...but I'll add what mine is at anyway.

At the end of July, I had to cut short, all of the dead ends/nastiness gone. It was about jaw-length in the front, a little shorter in the back.
Now, the front is about 2 & 1/2 inches down from my jaw, & in the back its about the span of two fingers away from hitting my collar of my t-shirt. So i'm rough estimating that it's grown about 2 & 1/2 inches, ish, which is a lot for me :) My hair does grow quite fast though, thank goodness, since I want to head for SL first, then BSL :)
I've been taking a lot of Biotin too, & my multivitamin, which i think have helped. Over all i'm pleased. I want to have it grow as quickly as possible. So impatient!

September 1st, 2010, 06:20 PM
49", so same as last month! No length gain, but no loss, either.

September 1st, 2010, 06:28 PM
I got so tired of obsessing over measuring that I gave my friend all of my measuring impliments so I wouldn't be tempted but if the past few months have been any indication then I'm probobly around 19in by now.

September 1st, 2010, 06:34 PM
I haven't seriously measured for the past couple of months because I was getting sick of the twenties. I want 30 inches, dang it! But finally, the tape measure today read 30.75. Ignoring your hair pays off. I'm about an inch away from waist, although I probably need another 2 inches before it looks like full waist length.

September 1st, 2010, 06:41 PM
I'm at 34" or 1" past waist. I had a trim in August so I didn't gain any length. Next goal is hip length 36".

September 1st, 2010, 06:44 PM
29.5" and right at waist!!!! Only 11 more inches to classic!! :happydance:

September 1st, 2010, 06:49 PM
I have just joined, therefore this will be my first official measure in. 22'' is APL for me. I think I am a very slow grower, so I am hoping to get to BSL by Feb. Fingers crossed.

September 1st, 2010, 06:51 PM
I measured in this month at 29.25 inches! When I joined at the very beginning of March (2010) my hair was 25 inches long, so that's 4.25 inches in 6 months or so. Yay! :)

September 1st, 2010, 06:55 PM
Im 28 inches, and finally can say that I am on the other side of my bra strap!!!

September 1st, 2010, 07:45 PM
I did a small self-trim (1/4 inch) of the very longest of my growth attempting to keep the ends even and hopefully thicken them up. Even with that I've grown 1/2 inch and am now at 34.5. BCL is 36, so while I'm officially in maintaining-to-thicken-ends mode, that's my next goal.

September 1st, 2010, 08:10 PM
It's not been exactly a month, since my August measure-in was on the 10th, but I'm doing it now before I forget :p
In August, I was at 17" after a trim. I'm now at 18", so maybe the biotin and occational monistat treatment have boosted my usually-slow growth rate. :cheer:

September 1st, 2010, 08:21 PM
I'm at 50 inches now, so only 0.25 inches growth this time. I might maintain this length for a month or two to even up the ends a bit. It is tempting to just keep growing, though.

September 1st, 2010, 09:27 PM
I did a half an inch trim a couple of days ago to head off any splits (I seem to be getting more lately, maybe due to more frequent Curlformer use? I hope not!)

Anyhow, I'm at 22.75" So only a quarter inch increase this month, after trims.

September 1st, 2010, 09:45 PM
22.5, my goal is waist but I have a mini goal of getting back to where I was before the big chop 29". I should be there in a bout a year and a half.

September 1st, 2010, 10:52 PM
I'm at 18.5" dry and 19" wet, aprox. 1 inch of growth. I think its too inexact to try to measure closer than a half inch. I'm about 3 inches from APL. If the monistat and multivitamins can help me grow an inch a month, I'll be there by my birthday :)

September 2nd, 2010, 12:20 AM
Still about 21".. maybe 21.5". Grow hair, grow!

September 2nd, 2010, 12:34 AM
52" after a 1" trim earlier this morning. Debating whether or not to take another inch off to thicken my hemline, but I'll make that decision another day. :)

September 2nd, 2010, 01:28 AM
56.5" this month. First time I have measured since my last trim a few months ago.

September 2nd, 2010, 06:34 AM
I measured at 30 inches, so I guess I grew 1 inch in the last month.

September 2nd, 2010, 08:08 AM
I'm at exactly 26 inches!! :cheese:

That's an amazing number for me, since I started here below 20. :D

September 2nd, 2010, 07:54 PM
31.5"! I'm curious about how pregnancy affects my hair growth, so it will be interesting to see the changes over a month.

September 2nd, 2010, 09:40 PM
I am at 27.5" this month. I trimmed off .5" on the 1st so this month I had a .5" of growth.

August 1st was the first time I have ever ever measured my hair...wouldn't have even thought about it if it wasn't for this group...thanks a lot people, now I have yet another "issue.":D My DH thinks I'm absolutely insane as he's looking at the tape and I'm saying, "no get it exactly...don't fudge. Are you sure?"

Anyhow August 1: 21.25''
September 2: 22.25"

Wow! I can't believe it grew an inch.

September 2nd, 2010, 10:29 PM
I'm very tempted to measure right now but I know I have to wait 8 more days until my measuring day, eek this is hard! :whistle:

September 3rd, 2010, 01:50 AM
10.75 inches on my virgin length (up 0.25 inch from 2 weeks ago) and though I trimmed my hair, my ends still reach 42.5 inches. I am still calling it tailbone. *sigh*

September 3rd, 2010, 03:38 AM
I have reached 34", but have not measured in more than three months before tonight.

September 3rd, 2010, 04:18 AM
I think my very longest hairs are at 41.5''. Just. I hope.

September 3rd, 2010, 04:44 AM
Slow growing for me, just about a quarter of an inch. That puts me at 39 inches.

September 3rd, 2010, 06:35 AM
I'm at 27". That's one inch more than last month!

September 3rd, 2010, 09:29 AM
37.5 :)))) two and a half inches to my target and classic :)))

September 3rd, 2010, 09:40 AM
I'm 27.1 inches this month :)
I've gained an inch.

September 3rd, 2010, 11:41 AM

.75" growth!! :) thank you hair vitamins!

September 3rd, 2010, 11:54 AM
I'm at 23" !!! continuing with my 3/4" growth per month.

September 3rd, 2010, 01:53 PM
23 inches:)

September 3rd, 2010, 02:16 PM
24.5 inches when wet :D

September 3rd, 2010, 02:31 PM
I'm at 36 inches!! That is one of the first numbers I saw around here that made me think "That is LONG!!"--so a big milestone of feeling LONG!!

September 3rd, 2010, 03:12 PM
Finally made it to 28"! I also trimmed this month, somewhere between 1/4 and 1/2 an inch. I trim every 3rd month. Next trim will be December 1st. I'm pretty disappointed that I only grew 1" all summer. I grew 1" per month this past winter... But I've been shedding a LOT this summer. But now I'm almost almost at waist! The very tips are there but I'm not calling it until 29 or 30 inches.

Good luck to everyone with your months measure-ins!

September 3rd, 2010, 03:24 PM
I'm at 38.4'', with 0.4'' growth (my usual 1cm per month) :)

September 3rd, 2010, 05:44 PM
Looks like I had growth since I'm 33" now. It's really tough to figure out how many inches I need to grow to reach tailbone (because my hair is wavy and maddening to measure). I'm guessing about 5-7 more inches. I'm happy with the quality of my hair right now. Last time I was tailbone it was not very healthy so I'm really excited to see what it will look like.

Congrats to everyone on your growth.

September 4th, 2010, 10:00 AM
Just measured and I am at forty. (yay) That is two inches from the last time I measured a few months ago.

September 4th, 2010, 03:32 PM
27", the usual half inch per month.
I never thought I would get past BSL!

September 4th, 2010, 03:57 PM
half an inch from 1 aug to 1 sept. And I thought my normal growt rate was an inch per month when I started to measure monthly! How naive :)

September 5th, 2010, 08:31 AM
42" getting there slowly.

Ravenwaves 88
September 5th, 2010, 11:07 AM
32" I should get two more inches by Jan if there's no winter stall. After a trim I'll be 33" with fresh ends.

September 6th, 2010, 11:31 AM
I measured 25.5", with a gain of 0.5". I'm glad there's growth, but I was hoping for more! Oh well. I guess part of the reason I was hoping for more is because my unstretched measurement was one whole inch longer, but measuring curls is so unreliable! They just don't measure evenly or well.

September 6th, 2010, 11:37 AM
I'm at 20.5, so only half an inch growth. :( Oh well - hopefully I'll get back to my normal growth next month. :)

September 7th, 2010, 01:18 AM
38.5" :cheese: :D That's a 2.5" increase since last measure. Before that one I had a professional 'trim' by a family member who actually trimmed only what was necessary. It has done so much better since then and I also have started brushing instead of combing (unless wet, of course). Classic here I come!!! :cheer:

September 8th, 2010, 04:54 PM
YAY!! Up to 31"...Gain of 1" since August 10. Three more inches to go until hip...Five more until my goal of TBL.

September 8th, 2010, 08:56 PM
26" I'm almost back to what I started out with after cutting off all that damage. Now I just have to grow out layers again. My hair growth has slowed to a crawl these last few months, maybe a 1/4 inch at a time. This past month I think I finally got almost a 1/2 inch again. Big change from the inch per month I was getting last year during the same months. Oh well.

September 10th, 2010, 06:33 PM
uh, just got DH to measure it wet/stretched, one bit of my hair is 28" (it's not all the same length which I'm ok with.) That's an increase of 1" in 12 days. I think he screwed up when we measured on Aug 29, personally. lol

September 10th, 2010, 10:18 PM
1/2 inch of growth, yay! Now down to 38 inches :D

September 11th, 2010, 07:24 PM
I thought I'd measured on August 10th, but the date on my tape says 17th, so I guess I measured early. But in about three weeks, I gained 3/8ths of an inch. Not too bad, I guess, since it didn't seem to grow any at all there for a few months. :nono:

September 12th, 2010, 03:29 PM
21 inches!!!! I had my 1st trim in 1 year this last month.

September 12th, 2010, 03:37 PM
made it to 23 inches! :) so about one inch in a month :)

September 12th, 2010, 04:04 PM
Haven't measured in a while. At 55".

September 12th, 2010, 05:10 PM
my hair is shoulderlength. Can't wait till I measure up next september!

September 12th, 2010, 07:12 PM
25.5" and I'm pretty sad and confused.

I haven't measured in forever and yes I got trims but I was 26 in July.

Maybe I got more trimmed off than I wanted to and didn't notice. Sigh... This is a good place to start really monitoring again.
