October is my favorite month! (Maybe it has to do with the fact that my birthday is in October??? ;))
Let's check in with our measurements for the new month. I am right at 26 inches, yet another solid half inch per month. How about you?

October 1st, 2010, 10:42 AM
23 1/2" ! Moving closer to APL.

October 1st, 2010, 01:15 PM
I measured 99cm (39'') :)

October 1st, 2010, 01:37 PM
As planned, I'm holding at 34.5 inches. Did 2 small .5 cm trims in September. My hemline is slowly thickening. -waiting impatiently-

October 1st, 2010, 01:46 PM
49.5", so up by 0.5" after my 1.0" trim at the start of September.

October 1st, 2010, 01:56 PM
I just joined around September 20th, so I can't really join this accurately. I did measure it last night and it's close to 21", where it was closer to 20" around the time I started so I guess I'm doing something right :).

October 1st, 2010, 02:06 PM
oh no i left my tape measure at home when I moved to uni so I won't be able to measure til December. :)

October 1st, 2010, 02:09 PM

I think my hair grew a quarter of an inch over this last month.. hopefully when my health improves my hair will grow faster.. -.-

October 1st, 2010, 02:17 PM

Cant measure so I take pictures, seeing the progress motivates me anyway!

October 1st, 2010, 02:25 PM
my favorite months as well :) :cake:
I measured in at 22" within the last week or so

October 1st, 2010, 03:02 PM
28.5 up .5. Didn't do DE this month. Did Monistat instead..5 less growth this month. Guess I will start DE again. :)

October 1st, 2010, 03:09 PM
Measured at 36.75 inches prior to my trim last night. I try to take 0.25 inches, but I'm now getting various measurements somewhere between 36.25 and 36.5, so I'm going to call it 36.25 for this month.

Still gaining small lengths and the hemline continues to improve with the monthly trims. :)

October 1st, 2010, 04:01 PM
Just joined so I measured at 22" and looking for fist goal of 25" (bsl) and 31" (waist)

October 1st, 2010, 04:57 PM
Still at just shy of 49". So no growth. But no length loss, either. :)

October 1st, 2010, 04:59 PM
31.5 inches, so that's .5"of growth. About 1 inch to go till waist

October 1st, 2010, 05:02 PM


October 1st, 2010, 05:13 PM
I'm measuring in at 31.5 inches....that is 3/4inch this month. My hair apparently grows faster in fall than in summer. It did this last year, too. I guess it makes up for the increased fall shedding.

October 1st, 2010, 05:41 PM

Cant measure so I take pictures, seeing the progress motivates me anyway!

I love your beauty marks.

and I believe I'm at 32" this month :)

October 1st, 2010, 05:50 PM
Ive never measured in before but been on the list for over a year now so i guess it's about time, hey?
i measured 24.5 ".
Immediate goal, 36" and then we'll see from there.

October 1st, 2010, 05:53 PM
I measured 31'' this month :)

October 1st, 2010, 10:06 PM
Since I did do a large trim last month I know my overall length will be less than before, however, my virgin hair should be fine :D

Overall Length: 40.5 inches (down from 42.5 from a trim)

Virgin Length: 11.5 inches (up from 10.75)

October 1st, 2010, 10:24 PM
Smidgen under 39.5 inches this month... slowly working my way to goal!

October 1st, 2010, 10:25 PM
Happy Birthday, I measured in today at 20 and 3/4 inches!

October 2nd, 2010, 06:50 PM
Wet + stretched, measured by DH = 28.25"

Up from Sept 10th, 28". :)

October 2nd, 2010, 07:09 PM
BF measured me at 19.25" earlier this afternoon, so up only .25" from my measurement last month. Eep! I always thought I was a slow grower, and sadly I now have measurements to prove it. How discouraging! Good thing my goal isn't that long! :)

(smileycat boycotts tape measure. maybe monster boys will hide the new tape measure with the "lost" tape measure from last month to help out.)

October 2nd, 2010, 07:11 PM
^ Take prenatal vitamins. Seriously.

October 2nd, 2010, 07:15 PM
Measure in at 20 inches wet. Up an inch, so monistat must work.

October 2nd, 2010, 07:59 PM
I have two distinct lengths happening in my hair (three if I count the hair in the front). The longest is at 21" and the rest, which is the majority, is at 20.5".

Growing along nicely at my usual half inch per month rate!

October 2nd, 2010, 08:14 PM
34 1/2"...

October 3rd, 2010, 03:46 AM
28.5 inches this month, so that's +.5 an inch. :)

October 3rd, 2010, 05:33 AM
25 5/8. That's 5/8 of an inch of growth this month. Almost officially at BSL. :)

October 3rd, 2010, 05:38 AM
I grew an inch since August!

October 3rd, 2010, 05:41 AM
I trimmed a bit yesterday but it's still 44.3". I gained about half an inch in September which is not much compared to the 1" I got in August. It's still better than nothing. :shrug:

October 3rd, 2010, 01:20 PM
38 inches :)))) 2 inches to target length of 40" which will be classic. By the end of the year maybe :)))

October 3rd, 2010, 01:30 PM
Rats, it looks like I'm still at 32"! But my hair is really curly today so maybe I'll have to measure it again when it's wet.

October 3rd, 2010, 01:46 PM
Been MIA forever, but figuring I'll check in anyway :-)

Length today is 23. I did have one mega trim (took over an inch) in August, but am back to growing!

October 3rd, 2010, 03:11 PM
I am at 44 inches after a 2 inch trim.

October 3rd, 2010, 03:43 PM
Measured in at 31.5"

October 3rd, 2010, 04:14 PM
I'm at about 30" now, woohoo! My hair is just starting to touch waist length! :cheese:

October 3rd, 2010, 04:16 PM
26.25", just up .25 last month. But that's after I trimmed .75" so I'm pretty happy that I somehow grew an whole inch in a month. That's a first.

October 3rd, 2010, 07:07 PM
Holding steady at 27", had a small trim last month.

October 3rd, 2010, 08:23 PM
I measured in last night at 23.5 inches. That's up about .75 inches for the month. Still 2 inches away from BSL... not sure if I'll make it by the end of this year!

October 3rd, 2010, 09:13 PM
My longest hairs are now 30 inches. I measured last week, that is 3 inches in 4 months. Getting really close to waist.

October 4th, 2010, 12:19 AM
I seem to be slowing at the moment with only short bursts of growth each month but my hair feels like it's getting quite long. Very strange. Anyway, I only had 2/8" of growth this month according to my photos. I am normally 5/8" so I'm hoping I can make up for it next month.

Still O folks. The new hair I had, including most of the eyelashes has fallen out :( . The hair that has always been there (some scraggy bits at the back) is growing really well :).

I may need to go tackle my Dr again, I'll give her a few months respite and then take no prisoners. LOL!

October 4th, 2010, 06:39 AM
I measured 70 cm yesterday, that's about 1.5/2 cm growth. Better than last month at least.

October 4th, 2010, 07:43 AM
31'' for me :)

October 4th, 2010, 07:49 AM
Just measured at a solid 34", three inches from my mini-goal of TB, and FIRMLY into hip length. Whoohoo!!

October 4th, 2010, 08:43 AM
21.3" for me! (54 cm). That's when mesuring from my hairline on my forehead, over my crown and down the back.

ETA: That's almost 2" of growth since I started in july! About half an inch per month - totally fine by me :) I've never had really fast growing hair. It'll be interesting to se if my growth slows down during the winter (wich can be very cold where i live!).

October 4th, 2010, 05:24 PM
35.5. I don't think I've ever had this much before. And I trimmed in early September.

October 4th, 2010, 05:47 PM
36.5". Still so close to TBL but not quite there...

October 4th, 2010, 06:53 PM
Not washed or brushed since morning, bun waves and all with myself measuring, so who knows, but it says 54 inches, I feel it hitting my knees, when I brush it, and when it's wet I can feel it almost tickling my calves!:D

October 4th, 2010, 07:14 PM
My first measurement since growing again. Measuring in at 16 3/4 inches.

October 4th, 2010, 08:20 PM
First official measurement (had my 23 year old daughter do it) 19" with a circumference of 3.25 inches. Thicker than I thought it was!

October 4th, 2010, 09:11 PM

Up half inch since mid-Sept but that measurement was sus(pect.)

October 5th, 2010, 09:30 AM
I was at 25 inches last night before I did a overdue trim. Somehow I lost a half inch between September and October? I think because I measured myself in September and my DH measured for me this time. Oh well! After I trimmed just the end I am at 24.5 now. My shortest layer is 16. I got a ways to go before they match up.

October 5th, 2010, 09:37 AM
First official measurement at 27 inches wet (26 dry with my waves).

Good to be a part of the club!

October 5th, 2010, 10:12 AM

1/2" gain from last month. Slow but steady!

October 5th, 2010, 11:32 AM
I was 29.5" on 18/09/10 but trimmed back due to split ends today 05/10/10 I measure 28.8" so 0.7" in just 17 days, will remeasure on the 18th to see my true monthly growth.

I have been on Bargello's vitamin regimen for 12 weeks now and I think i can safely say its working!!!

October 5th, 2010, 02:45 PM
22" Just started and just found LHC so hopefully will be at 28" healthy someday

October 5th, 2010, 04:17 PM
32.5"! Coming off what I worried was a stall, I grew an inch this month! Hopefully I'll keep going this way the rest of my pregnancy!

October 5th, 2010, 04:31 PM
Looks like 27 inches here. A good inch since my last measure, so I'm happy!

October 5th, 2010, 04:32 PM
25 inches. Slowly but surely. :D

October 5th, 2010, 04:36 PM
My longest strands are just hitting 37 3/4 so that's quarter of an inch growth since last month I think. A little disheartening, but at least it's growing in some fashion.

October 6th, 2010, 07:32 AM
23 1/2" or officially APL dry curly :cheese:

October 7th, 2010, 09:14 AM
31 inches and I'm now at waist. Is it possible that my hair is really growing 1 inch per month?

October 7th, 2010, 09:56 AM
I measured at 19.5" yesterday. So long to goooo.....

October 7th, 2010, 07:38 PM
I made it from 25.5" to 26". I seem to be growing a .5" every month pretty steadily.

October 7th, 2010, 08:03 PM
October measurement= 24.5 inches

October 7th, 2010, 08:04 PM
32.5"! Coming off what I worried was a stall, I grew an inch this month! Hopefully I'll keep going this way the rest of my pregnancy!

I miss being pregnant (as far as hair growth goes). My hair seemed to grow so much faster and it looked healthier when I was pregnant. Congrats on your inch growth in one month!

October 7th, 2010, 08:34 PM
21.5 inches

October 8th, 2010, 10:59 AM
31 and 1/8". Finally at the top of the hip bone. :cheese:

October 8th, 2010, 11:41 AM
I *think* I gained 0.5in, up to 28.5in total. I measured my hair dry and I usually do it wet, so it might be a little off.

October 8th, 2010, 07:45 PM
42.4 inches! :cheese:

October 11th, 2010, 03:57 AM
18.5", with some slight trimming for shaping. :)

October 11th, 2010, 04:30 AM

Only the second time i measured precisely. 6 weeks ago it was 21.5".
Almost one inch of growth in 6 weeks, not bad for me.

October 11th, 2010, 07:21 AM
26.8 inches :D

October 11th, 2010, 07:45 AM
33.07 inches. only grown 0.7 in a year. not good.

October 11th, 2010, 07:56 AM
28.5 inches

October 11th, 2010, 08:25 AM
25.5 inches

October 12th, 2010, 10:12 AM
33.07 inches. only grown 0.7 in a year. not good.

In a year? Did you trim a lot?

(I won't do this, I won't do this, I won't do this... I promised myself I will measure every second month to stop obsessing a bit;) )

October 12th, 2010, 12:23 PM
31" (just at waist for me) after a trim, it seems to be growing slow. I can't wait to be below waist!

October 12th, 2010, 12:26 PM
20.5"... almost 21! Wow, I've grown a lot since September, one inch and *almost* a half! :S Is that possible? lol.

October 18th, 2010, 07:22 AM
In a year? Did you trim a lot?

(I won't do this, I won't do this, I won't do this... I promised myself I will measure every second month to stop obsessing a bit;) )

I had a large unsolicited trim earlier in the year (very irritated) and it just hasn't grown, I'm tempted by some of these pill things.....

Hair does seem to be growing slightly faster now, at least with my fringe :)

October 18th, 2010, 09:36 AM
I'm measuring in at 50.25" as of Oct 15. Subject to change :)

October 18th, 2010, 02:57 PM
I got 30 and a half inches on mine! I'd almost say that it's at waist but I feel as though I'm jumping the gun :-/
