I looked a couple times for this months measure in thread and didn't find one, so here goes!

My son measured for me, very, very carefully, last night. Took him longer than usual. He ended up telling me that I'm at 35 7/8 inches! I was at 35 1/2 the first of November, but I dusted that night, taking off probably most of that 1/2 inch. So I've gained at least 1/2 inch this month.

I have been mostly maintaining since June, but I think I'm going to stop for a bit and see how it does as it gets longer.

I think this is a milestone for me. This is as long as my hair has ever been, and for the first time I don't want to cut it back several inches due to thin ends! Yay!

I measured last night at 27.25 inches. :)

I remember how long that length seemed to me when I joined here! It's certainly much shorter now than it was then. :D

I'm new to the forum, but if someone tells me how to measure I'll go do it right now....if I have a long enough measuring tool. All I have are some my daughter's pedi gave to me the last time she went. lol

48.75" Or a loss of 0.75"... :rolleyes:

On the other hand that's another 0.75-1.25" or so 'less' of the brush damaged/broken ends that didn't require an actual trim.

I joined a few months ago and have been putting off official measuring until finally breaking down last night! I am 20" and the longest I have been in 5 years. I am really enjoying my hair journey with new ketylo sticks and a Que craft fork. Thanks for all the great advice and support! :thumbsup:

Before this morning's trim, when it was braid wave free: 53"
After trim: 51" or 51.5".

The trim was very much needed.

I am now at 15". Which considering that two weeks ago I cut off 1/2" to even it up, means I got over an inch this month!!! :happydance:

31.7 inch pulled straight but still not totally straight.. i usually measure while straight so i guess (hope)there must be another 0.5 to 1 inch hiding there:P

About 32.2 inch, 1/2 inch of growth. Finally at waist! Last trim was 5 months ago, I try to wait another few month for a small trim

I'm at 19.75 (measuring from root to ends-not from the hairline) Sooo close to 20 I can almost taste it! :)

I'm *sniff sniff* only at a measley *sniff sniff* 19" now after cutting lots of my hair off about 5 weeks ago. I was at a long BSL and now it's hovering around my collarbone. I would be sadder but I've been going through a terrible divorce from the father of my 10 month old child, and I needed a pick-me-up. Sigh. I don't like short hair, but the ends are SOOOO healthy now. Grow hair grow! :)

I've got some hairs creeping past 38", but some are around 37.75".

This gets boring when you realise you just have half an inch, every month :p

Still at 22 inches. When I got my hair cut on November 5th she cut off about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch. And it's only grown 1/4 of an inch in the last three and a half weeks. So back to where I started measuring in earnest.

21" plus or minus for my increasingly uneven ends

Measured 37.25 inches after my monthly trim. I'm just skimming upper tailbone (bcl)!

The trim this month helped cure a couple of months of itching to just cut off those final 4 inches of damaged hair and hope for thicker ends...but I'm keeping my commitment to the full year of 2010 with 1/4-inch trims each month. I'm trying to commit to continuing throughout 2011, and I should be almost through with those 4 inches by then, but still gaining length each month!

I'm looking forward to 40 inches in the next year, as that's the length that sounded really *long* to me when I first joined LHC!

I don't have a measuring tape with me at college (Anybody know where to buy one? A fabric store?), but between taking pictures and attempting to measure with string and a ruler, I am pretty sure I'm at 24.5 inches.

Up a half inch from last month, and just a half inch away from BSL! What a wonderful Christmas/birthday gift that'll be. :D

Yeah, a fabric store, or any store with sewing notions, will have one!

I'm at 27", another solid half inch. Same as every other month. So, I am thankful for steady growth.
Aaaanndd......I am a "hair's breadth" away from waist. ;) As I suspected, I will be pretty much at can-I-call-this-waist by Christmas!

I'm at 45 inches, so 1/2 inch growth from last month.

December 2nd, 2010, 07:18 PM
Yay, another 1/2 inch!

October - 24.5
December - 25

I might be a winter grower. I can say I didn't grow at all in summer! It might be my diet too, I'm addicted to my school's veggie shakes.

32.5 so I had 1/2 in. growth last month.

According to my measuring tape I've grown around an inch!?! Last month I was a bit below 71 cm and now I'm a bit above 73! We'll see when I take my December pic, somehow I doubt that I've grown that much, since it's 8- degrees celcius here and my hair is so static that I zap everything that comes near me.

Well, just started and in 2 weeks with suppliments, I'm at 22.5. So, that's 1/2 inch in 2 weeks. Sweet!

40.5+ this month. Only about half an inch but that's pretty good considering I've been a bit stressed the past few weeks:).

Very nice!!
Mine has grown an inch over the last month also! I thought it was a mistake but I re-measured several times and kept getting the same measurement.

I measured 102cm (40.2''), that is almost an inch of growth instead of my regular half inch! YAY! :D

27" again. Maintaining with regular microtrims. Heavy shedding and thin ends. :(

PraiseCheeses
December 3rd, 2010, 04:51 PM
A solid 20 inches, even when the ends flip up! That's an inch since this time last month.

girlcat36, your curls are beautiful and are exactly what I wish mine would be. Sigh... :)

33" (updates profile , whoops which is 3inches out of date) and is so nearly hip. I am defiantly liking the feel of it at the moment :) . Feeling pleased I'm making noticeable progress now

Im not sure how to explain this, the majority of my head and body is still at 0, however, since starting Rafaelles visualisation on hair growth (see the link below) one of my patches of hair which has been less then a mm and showing no sign of regrowth has had a sudden growth spurt, so its now a mm long.

http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/showthread.php?t=60372

Im trying to keep calm, as I know it can fall out or it can just be like facial hair and only grow to less then 2 cm. Im crossing my paws and hope that its a good sign.

Thanks Rafaelle, Im carrying it on and see what happens. :)
