View Full Version : My Septemeber Progression Update (pic heavy)

September 2nd, 2010, 09:04 PM
I decied to take a few pics just to display some great results that I have been getting within the last few weeks. I am currently using cones shampoo's and conditioners. The "Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing" product line to be exact. In the following pics, I did cheat. I blow dried my hair half of the way, then let it air dry. :D

Let me know what you think:









Sometimes it is very difficult to decipher exactly at what point my length really is?! Shoulder, APL, MBL?! :confused:

Your hair looks great! Have you always used cones?? My hair loves cones, I've tried doing the no cones method of hair care and it just doesn't work for me.

September 2nd, 2010, 09:10 PM
Your hair looks great, I love how smooth and shiny it looks.:cheese: My hair loves cones too so congrats on your results with them.

September 2nd, 2010, 09:11 PM
Wow, your hair has grown a lot since the last time I saw it! Looks good to me. :)

September 2nd, 2010, 09:11 PM
your hair is awesome :) it looks past APL to me :)

^ Thank you both! I appreciate those compliments!

Luluj, I stopped using cones during the winter and summer months. This time, I think I will try cones during the fall and perhaps continue onward into the colder winter months just to see what happens.
I am really noticing the extra "bump" thickness on top of my head where most men seem to lack thickness. They're seems to be in increase of thickening going on up there :cheese: hehe.

Very shiny!! The golden highlights are really nice too.

September 2nd, 2010, 09:18 PM
I call that length "Long enough and getting longer." Definately happy hair.

September 2nd, 2010, 09:21 PM
Wow, looks great!!

And, in a very non-sexual way as a married woman who's very happy in her relationship:
You're so handsome!!!!

September 2nd, 2010, 09:29 PM
Congratulations man! Your hair is growing along quite fast, it seems like you were barely at shoulder length just yesterday and now your on your way to BSL!!

If cones work for you, then keep using them. One thing about LHC is that there is no one size fits all rule, you just need to do whatever works best for you. Keep up the great growth. And also, its about time you show off your master braiding skills again. ;)

September 2nd, 2010, 09:31 PM
Wow your hair is looking awesome! I'm legitimately jealous!

September 2nd, 2010, 10:11 PM
It's getting long and looks awesome, keep up the good work : )

September 2nd, 2010, 10:15 PM
Growing and looking good.
Could you include a smile next time? You look so gloomy!

September 2nd, 2010, 10:46 PM
Wow you are growing fast! And your hair is really looking nice too, it looks shiny and healthy. Umm...like eric says, when are you gonna show off some mad braiding skillz again hrm?!

September 2nd, 2010, 10:52 PM
Holy smokes it's getting long! I am so excited for you. It's looking great.

September 2nd, 2010, 10:57 PM
whoo! looks like your hair is getting softer and healthier too :D congrats!

September 2nd, 2010, 11:16 PM
Happy September, YellowChariot !:cheese:You seem to be doing great! I love to see your progress. You are pretty solidly APL.

September 3rd, 2010, 12:08 AM
Good stuff man! It looks to be about APL to me.

I like the goatee too. :D

September 3rd, 2010, 12:24 AM

September 3rd, 2010, 12:46 AM
It looks very nice! Do you consider yourself blonde? I think your color may be pretty close to my natural color. Asking others too, is this blonde color?

September 3rd, 2010, 01:38 AM
It's shiny and it looks perfectly healthy! Beautiful! :)

September 3rd, 2010, 02:21 AM

Looking very healthy, shiny and soft there, and congratulations on the growth!

Nice hair! It looks very healthy

September 3rd, 2010, 05:54 AM
Your hair is looking great -- silky!

I myself have a too large collection of shampoos and conditioners under my sink --and I use them according to the whim of the wash day. Cones, no cones, who knows.

September 3rd, 2010, 05:55 AM
I vote for "APL-almost-MBL" ;)
Wow, your hair is so shiny! :)

September 3rd, 2010, 06:11 AM
Wow....definitely thud worthy dude!! And I agree....you need to smile! :D

Congrats, your hair looks awesome!!

September 3rd, 2010, 08:49 AM
Looking good! I like how your strands are on the fine side.. it makes it look more fantasy like :D

And at this rate your hair is going to catch up to mine in not too long XD

September 3rd, 2010, 10:39 AM
Awesome progress, yellowchariot! Definitely past APL.

September 3rd, 2010, 10:47 AM

September 3rd, 2010, 12:16 PM
Looks very soft & silky WC! Disappointed there were no nipple pics this time - just joking
Ahahahaha jajajajaja :rollin: I was like, is it against the rules to show nips, even for men?

September 3rd, 2010, 12:58 PM
Your hair is getting looooong! Looks great! :)

September 3rd, 2010, 01:15 PM
Lookin' good! :thumbsup: It looks at least APL to me, maybe longer.

September 3rd, 2010, 01:25 PM
Your hair looks great, healthy, and happy :)

September 3rd, 2010, 02:16 PM
Your hair looks great! Shiny and healthy - so many long haired men just don't take care of their hair, but it is good to see pictures of one who does! (And that is a very nice little beard, too!) ;)

September 3rd, 2010, 02:32 PM
Oooo, lookin' GOOD, YC!!! Your hair looks very healthy, and seems to be getting healthier and thicker the longer it grows. Excellent progress!!! :beerchug:

September 3rd, 2010, 02:51 PM
Great growing! Its looking fabulous!

September 3rd, 2010, 03:44 PM
Wow@ all of the replies! I really appreciate and thank you all for the really kind words and nice compliments! I consider myself a brownie. Those blond highlights were from last summer when I stayed out in the summer mowing a lot. Also the camera and lighting had much to do with it :D lol. Oh and I was smiling haha. I think I need to work on my lip muscles more often!

Also I've noticed the albums are down. So I've uploaded some updated pics to my photobucket site. For those of you who are on my Contacts/friends list, go check them out! http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/album.php?albumid=4654

September 3rd, 2010, 04:28 PM
Hey :) Your hair looks great! And definitely at least APL :) Although I can't really see you as a brownie, to me it looks all blonde! :) Dark blonde but not brown! But maybe I have faulty colorvision ;)

September 3rd, 2010, 05:45 PM
Totally not a brownie, more like a dark blonde. From another happily married lady, in a non-sexually threatening way, you are indeed very hunkalicious! *wink wink* The hair is really working for you!

September 3rd, 2010, 05:54 PM
It looks great. Shiny and healthy! I would say it is APL... definitely not shoulder length.

September 3rd, 2010, 06:12 PM
So shiny! I think you look blond too:)

September 3rd, 2010, 08:53 PM
Looking great at that length. Love those highlights, very natural :)

September 3rd, 2010, 09:02 PM
Awesome progression! I, too, am liking the highlights :cool: Funny, I'm currently using HE Hello Hydration as well, and my hair is loving it!

For what it's worth, I'd say you're a solid APL, heading towards MBL! :D Congratulations!
