Hey everyone =) I joined LHC December 1, 2010 and already have noticed a lot of improvement in my hair. I posted something like this a couple weeks ago, but didn't have a current hair picture. I've been amazed in the difference in my hair before and after, and I can only hope it gets better!

My hair was a bit of a mess, really rough and impossible to get a comb through without some conditioner. I'd wake up in the morning with tons of frizz and an oily scalp. You can't see them well here, but the ends were like velcro. It's especially noticeable at my scalp, but my hair got stringy and oily looking very easily despite it being dry.

Amazingly, this is after sleeping with it loose (I fell asleep last night before I could braid it) and just running a comb through. I did a very small trim for New Years, but it still looks like I've gained some length. It feels unbelievably soft and for the first time in.. well, forever, I can braid it one hour, put it up in a bun the next, and then let it down and it STILL isn't stringy!

I'm pretty excited about my hair :cheese: Family and friends have been commenting on how long its getting and how much softer and nicer it's looked. I can't wait to hit waist!

Are you sure you're not already AT waist level? It looks way past BSL to me.

Kherome, my hair is usually wavier with some curls thrown in. Stretched out, it is still a couple inches from waist. Its nice to know it looks like waist though! It is very close atleast =)
