At the beginning of this year, there was a thread that asked where you'd like your hair to be by the year's end.

I started the year (February) with 18.5 inches (about shoulder length, maybe a little longer) and hoped to be at BSL by the end of the year. Well....

I DID IT!!


How did YOU do?? :cheese:

ohh this thread sounds fun!
Well this year has been a bad one personally for me , so i haven't thought about my hair much until these last couple months, when things settled down for me.

i didnt really have a goal, i just wanted my hair to be long.
i started off this year at a little past APL. Now my hair is barely waist.
i got about 2 trims this year taking off a couple inches each time, so i lost quite a few inches :(

But for 2011, no trims unless my hair really needs it.

I hope to be hip by december 2011 :):cheese:

Ops, I mean that I am at MBL

I don't remember what I said, probably BSL and with straightened hair or minus my last 2 (unplanned) trims, I'd be there..so I'm happy with my progress for sure!!

Igor you are a true inspiration! I just looooooooveeeeeee your hair.



Im not had a year yet, I joined in March, but there has been some progress. When I started I had very little scalp growth due to Alopecia Univarlis, there hadnt been any new hair growth for years.

Now I have the very fine small white hairs growing in places Yippeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, including in the scarred areas - double yippeeeeee. Iv had my eyelashes and brows grow back once but they fell out, but they look like they might becoming more extravert and regrowing again.

I hoped to be TBL by year's and and I am there! I measured my hair every month for this year and will do my last measure for 2010 at the end of this month but I gained a full 6" in growth, with about 1/3 inch trimmed in a microtrim back in August. I am about to 38", will likely be at 38" by year's end and I started at 32". So...from above hip to TBL in a year.

I could potentially make Classic by the end of 2011, but I am not sure how long I will grow past TBL as that was my main goal.

My "hair-greedy" side wants to grow long long long, but my practical side says "focus on quality" and really, it is rather unwieldly to me at this length so I am not sure longer hair would be my thing. I will wait and see what 2011 brings!

I am considering bunning for the rest of the winter as my winter attire seems to be hard on my hair (abrasive) and it also helps the moisture issue.

Way to go!!

I finally reached APL, when curly, which is great cause I get a lot of shrinkage. For 2011, I would love to finally reach BSL, which I think is doable with some trims included even. I will definitely get there soon straight, but that's not the goal!

Wanted classic length, got classic length. It's kind of a let-down, though. I was supposed to feel so much more ........... accomplished or something. But no, I feel exactly the same.

Unfortunately Iím beginning to get really frustrated with my progress. I never felt like my hair slowed down growing but I have been at ďmid thighĒ for like a year now (Granted, its my own fault for trimming, but at least Iím happy with the hemline)

Can't wait to hit waist but am thinking about trimming out a little of the damage before I get there. Hope you all did well! Happy growing in the next year!

I don't think I've been actively growing for a year yet--I was growing for a while just because I hadn't gotten around to getting it cut, and then just decided to grow it out. I do know that it was above shoulder length in July 2009, and I might have gotten one more cut after that, but for sure no real cuts (just dustings) since Fall 2009. Now I'm at BSL, with a goal to hit waist by next summer. Since I'm only about 2" from waist stretched, I think I'll make that goal no problem. After that? Who knows! :)

At the begin of this year my hair was quite damaged, it was ok untill bsl but the longer hairs were thin.those where cut most in May.
I wanted to reach waist this year and i did that!!!
I'm really happy with my lenght i'm little less than 2 inches from fully hip at the moment
Mostly quit the flat iron(once a month or less) and had one trim in may.
I will do another trim when i'm past hip, untill then: Happy growing all!!

I didn't set a goal and as of last December I wasn't seeing length change in my month to month photos or measuring efforts. But I took a picture for this December and comparing to a year ago, I think I have 5 to 6 inches more length. :)

I just found my old wishes so I thought I would post them here and 'tick' them off.

1. Try to enjoy my hair at it's current length - DONE
2. Try different updos appropriate to my hair's length and not pine over those I can't do yet - DONE
3. SMT weekly - Not consistently
4. Keep up my photo a month so as to measure my growth rate - DONE
5. Stay away from the salons - Had one trim in March
6. Buy a good pair of hair cutting scissors and try Feye's self trim - NO TRIMMING
7. Forget about fairytale ends and go for what my hair is going to be good at - a thick blunt hemline. - KIND OF
8. Get to waist, grow out the layers and then ponder classic for 2011/2012 - too optimistic? - NOT AT WAIST AS YET. CLASSIC SEEMS LIKE A LONG WAY AWAY STILL.

Here is a shot from January 2010 and at the beginning of this month. There is about a 1 - 2" trim in there around late March. I think I wanted to be at waist. If I stretch it, it just skims waist but I think I'll need another month to actually get there.

(I take pictures from the front because my curl pattern is very inconsistent and sometimes is looser or tighter depending on the day - and it is easiest for me to judge then from the front instead of the back).

At the beginning of this year, I was almost BSL. At the end of this year, I'll almost be WL. I'm about half to a quarter of an inch away from WL and I don't think I'll get to WL this year. The last couple of inches towards WL are taking forever. Maybe I'll get there if my hair has some sort of growth spurt. All in all, I've had good growth this year.

At the beginning of the year I was almost at knee length, but decided to trim back to fingertip to eliminate the see-through ends. Trimmed about 9 inch or so.
Then I let it grow for a year to see how it goes.

Now I'm back at almost-kneelength. But my fall shed this year was BAD. Guess that's my body telling me that I'm working too much :/ mmmh.
Anyways, my hemline did not get better. In fact I suspect it got worse than it was last year. Bummer!

So I'm back where I was last year and all I gained was more taper. Great :p

In January before I joined LHC my longest lengths were slightly above BSL and now my longest lengths are an inch below waist! I started measuring in March and it was 25" then, so I guess I started at 24" and now I'm at 30", with only 2 trims this year (I snipped off some fairytails 2 days ago).

I haven't measured my hair since it is so heavy with layers and therefore difficult to pinpoint. Also, I'm a bit afraid to get too obsessed about a number. Therefore I've just taken photographs each month, since I started growing out my hair in February 2010. This is the result:

(The second photograph doesn't really do justice to my hair. It had been in a bun all day before I let it down and therefore it looks really messy and uneven. Fortunately that's not the case in reality. :) )
I'm really happy with the progress! I didn't think I'd be able to manage going without trims for a whole year...but I'm almost there. I think I'll have a small trim in February and then none for another year again.
You guys have been a great help to me when it comes to my haircare routine!!

It's hard to remember exactly what I said, but I'm pretty sure that I was expecting to reach tb by the end of 2010, while doing monthly 1/4-inch trims to gradually get rid of old, damaged ends and layers.

I have successfully trimmed every month and while my ends are still thinner than I would like, I think I'm accomplishing the goal.

I have just reached "upper tb" (bcl) early in December, but still have 1-2 inches to true tailbone when not stretched (probably a month's growth to be there stretched), so not quite but pretty close!
