View Full Version : 1 Year Anniversary + Guru! *Pics*

September 23rd, 2010, 10:06 AM

Today is my 1 year anniversary here at LHC. I'm so happy to have found this community, not only for the amazing hair advice, but also for the great friends I've made.

My journey started two years ago when I cut my hair to a bob:

About a little over a year ago, I started searching for information on cones, and the results kept on leading me here . . . I lurked for about a month, and joined :)

In October, I took my first hair picture:
This is with my hair naturally dried, no products or combing. I was around SL or a little bit more.

. . . a year later . . . (plus guru status! -- any recommendations?)

This is my hair as of three days ago:

I think I'm solidly in BSL, if not a bit longer! BSL was my original goal, but once bitten by the LHC bug, now I'm thinking of waist (or beyond).

Thanks for looking! :)

That's just two years of growth??!! :thud:

Your hair is gorgeous -- so healthy, with beautiful wurls!!!

September 23rd, 2010, 10:44 AM
Beautiful hair!

You've had great progress and your hair is a fair bit wavier now as well. :D Good luck on your journey to waist and beyond.

September 23rd, 2010, 10:55 AM
Thank you all for the congratulations and compliments! :) :o
Also, thanks Pixna for the thud! :inlove:

I guess my hair did grow relatively fast, but progress was definitely frustrating absent at times. I don't do monthly measurements, so for months it seems like nothing changes, but then poof :magic: and it's longer! Of course that whole time I've been haranguing DBF with repeated questions of "is it longer yet?" ;)

Any guru title suggestions?

Nice growth:) I love the little twisty curls that you hair has:)

September 23rd, 2010, 11:10 AM
Your hair is beautiful, such full waves!

September 23rd, 2010, 11:17 AM

Congratulations on your growth and your gurudom!! :flower:

September 23rd, 2010, 12:45 PM
Your hair looks fantastic!

September 23rd, 2010, 01:57 PM
Wow, thanks for all of the compliments! You all are going to make my hair get an inflated ego. :o (which would make it fluffy :nono:)

Schweedie, thanks for the comment -- you made me blush! :)

I'll have to get a photo in natural light next time I wash my hair, because I think the flash is definitely giving it some artificial shine.

As for the wurls - unfortunately I've been having to brush them out since moving because I just don't have the time to let them dry wurly :/
The most recent photo is actually me with partially-dried bunwaves, which gives a bit more structure to the wurls and makes them a bit bigger. :)

I am beginning to think, though, that my classification might change as my hair gets longer and is generally more moisturized and in better condition. :hmm:

ETA: I got a guru title! :cheese:

September 23rd, 2010, 02:00 PM
Beautiful hair and great growth! Congratulations guru-dom too. :hollie:

My original goal was midback, then waist, then hip, and (for now) is tailbone! :lol:

September 23rd, 2010, 02:21 PM
I adore your hair! It looks perfectly healthy, lovely natural color, thickness and waves!
Congratulations on both accounts :)

September 23rd, 2010, 02:36 PM
Beautiful growth in just one year! So shiny and healthy too! Congrats! Keep it up!

September 23rd, 2010, 02:38 PM

I'd like to be where you are now in 2 year or so.

September 23rd, 2010, 02:39 PM
Happy anniversary and congrats on guru :D

September 23rd, 2010, 02:43 PM
wow, it has grown so fast! I hope I will have an equal-like lenght after one year of growth, when it's my hair anniversary. 4 more months to go!

September 23rd, 2010, 02:53 PM

I'm so grateful for all of the compliments and support from you all! I wish my hair looked like that every day, too . . .

Melikai, yes, I can already feel the urge to go longer and longer . . .

Chestershire - it didn't feel like it grew very quickly ;). I'm looking forward to congratulating you on your anniversary :)

Sarahbrownie, I am definitely enjoying Russia, especially the yummy food and the long-hair eyecandy! :) Good luck on your goal of BSL by Christmas -- you look well on your way to getting there!

Triumphator! - Thanks for the compliment on my texture -- although I would have killed for your 1b hair when I was younger . . . :)

Phexlyn - Thank you! I must admit that hip is beginning to look tempting!

yvsa, thanks for the compliment. My secret? Tons of oil and conditioning :) (oh, and a lot of waiting ;))
