View Full Version : It's my 1 yr. anniversary (pic heavy)

June 9th, 2008, 08:40 PM
So I started at LHC and my hair was 22" and dyed a bright red and severely damaged. After one year it's grown 6.5 inches and is at "Can I call this waist?!?" I just want to say a big thanks to everyone at LHC for all of their wisdom and offer some hope to the people that are saying "my hair is so damaged it'll never grow!" Trust me it will!!

Here is my hair about 2 years ago (I had to flat iron and wax it to get it to do this style):
Here is my hair about two months after I started growing it was at about 24.5":
Here is my hair today:

So do you guys think I can say I am at waist or should I wait for a month or two?!!? By the way I know on a "normal person" 28.5 is BSL or MBL but I am short and disproportioned :cheese:

Great growth! That looks like waist to me! Congrats on your one year anniversary!

June 9th, 2008, 08:49 PM
Your hair is gorgeous! So sleek and shiny. I'd call that waist.

June 9th, 2008, 08:55 PM
i would definitely call that waist. great job!

June 9th, 2008, 08:59 PM
You guys rock!!! I was hoping you would say that I was waist lol :D

It will only be waist for a few more days because I am going to get about an inch trimmed to try to even the hemline and get rid of some damage!

I was wondering the same thing! Beautiful hair! :flowers:

Thanks everybody for all of your positive comments!! That is why I love it here!

Of course it's waist! Congrats! You hair looks great, do you by any chance henna?:)

No I don't henna, it's a result of dying my hair red for several years I can't seem to get rid of the underlying red no matter what. I am over it though :p

I did henna once with Lush's Caca brun mama about 9 months ago it turned my hair a darker brown for a bit and I liked it but I am too lazy to do all of the work that hennaing entails and deal with the strong scent of cloves for a week (it's a Lush thing :disgust:). But I do envy the dedication and the beautiful coppery locks of the henna heads on this board :D

Gorgeous! Yep, I'd call it waist, or even a bit past, but I'm no expert :P. It grew so quickly!
