View Full Version : Can I call this APL?

February 28th, 2011, 12:37 AM
I wore my hair straight today for the express purpose of taking a pic to post and ask if I can call this APL :) I did a doobie, so I kept my no heat styling promise, woot! I also realized I kind of hate my hair straight, I am a curly all the way :cheese:

Without further ado:

What do you think? If I'm not there, I'm getting REALLY close!

ETA: pics that show just how far I've come!

YAY! I am so so excited! That means I went from a chin length bob to APL in about 15 months, with a 1-inch trim last May. Grow hair grow!

WOW great growth and it looks great :)

I would say almost APL because your head is tilted back a little. In a less than a month it will be full APL without any caveats! And it's pretty and healthy-looking :flower: Great growth!

To me it looks APL! Congratulations on great growth, your hair looks great!

I think you just have a tiny bit further to go. What a huge difference from your before pic ! Congrats on the wonderful growth !!

Thanks for the compliments! The difference in the condition and how it feels is pretty amazing too, the second "before" pic is right after I started co-washing and really caring for my hair.

I have discovered that my fine hair really doesn't take to heat or shampoo well at all; as I was doing a S&D session earlier I realized I have new growth literally all over my head, not just at my hairline as I initially thought. I just might have ii thickness hair once all these little baby hairs grow in, they're maybe 4-5 inches long right now and stick out all over the place if I try to do updos.

Congratulations my lovely hair twin :D

Soooo close!!! Another month and I think you're there for sure!!!! :cheese:

I just hate thresholds! But we're bound to burst through!!!

My first reaction was that you have about another month to go. Your hair is gorgeous curly and it has grown so much. Congratulations on your little one - very cute!

And can I just add - you do curly bangs REALLY well!!

Great growth progress! In my opinion, I would say that you have just a *teeny* bit left until full APL, but you're very close! :flower:

Happy growing! :)

I'd say almost there. Another 1/2 to 1 inch, only because it looks like your head is slightly tilted back.

And yet again I forgot what a doobie was and was thinking "THAT straightened your hair? o_O" :D

:eyebrows: Teehee, I do the same thing when I see other people talk about it.

I'm a little sad I'm not quite there yet, but then again it will be quite a while before I'm APL while curly. I'm just glad it's growing!

I think there is mayve 1\3 of an inch - half an inch to go. But you are reaaally close!:cheer:

February 28th, 2011, 11:07 AM
I think just an itty-bitty more length and you'll be there. You've come along way from your short hair picture!:cheese:

I love your hair color and curls. So pretty!
