Is it a bit tailbone? Just the longest parts?

Lookin' good! I love those curls!!

Seems like "can I call this tailbone?" to me. If it were my hair, I'd go another half inch before I felt confident of tailbone-ness. But then, I tend towards overkill.

Wow I love your hair, the color and the curls!!

It grows very quick, between you and squiggy flop I am jealous!!

I think I would probably call it tailbone or can I call this tailbone?

I don't know it's hard to tell but either way you have grown quite a bit.

I think it's going to be awhile before it's "actually, officially, positively tailbone, but I was really surprised when I measured my hair today and it was 34.5 inches dry, just about a month and a hlf ago I measured and it was stalled at 33", My bf said the smallest bits could be almost 35 inches but I can't cheat myself.

My hair has grown a lot, and I haven't cut it since right before I came to TLHC, I am surprised at the little amout of splits I have and I am really lazy about s&d'ing.

Thanks HC, I "found" my curls when i stopped combing and brushing all the time, although I did comb out for these new pics.

Wow- lovely! You have had wonderful progress.
I think it is very close to TB. I cannot tell precisely, but even so, you are close to TB and have had great growth- your hair is stunning.

In the last few pics, your vivid red hair against the bright pink shirt is making this wicked cool glow. I like it.:magic:

You've just got gallons of big curly hair! Gorgeous!

I'm sure you're tailbone when wet, and juuuuuuuuuuuuuust shy when your hair shrinks from your curls. I think you can call it TB on a technicality ;)

Cantabile
June 13th, 2008, 04:33 AM
Oh, wow! Your hair is absolutely gorgeous! The curls!

Your hair seems to be somewhere between TB and Hip. Some of it resting at hip, some of it in the middle region between the two, and some at TB. Up to you what to label it as. :laugh:

Is it a trick of the camera, or are your ends glowingly red? Looks very cool! :inlove:

Beautiful color and curls! I think you are very very close to tailbone so I would call it tailbone length! :)

Gorgeous thick curls! :) Your hair does grow really fast, Sheli! I would say you can get that by as TB because we wurly-curlies have different lengths every day and some days you may have your hair touch your tailbone and other days you might not. But if it can brush your TB, then so be it. :)

I am soooooooo observant....I didn't even notice the "glowing" I am pretty sure it's the flash, either that, or I am radioactive! :eyebrows:

I have to admit, I am way happy with my hair, my hair has never ever in my life been this long, I have never allowed it to grow past my shoulders, I stopped hacking it off around 6 1/2 years ago and used to get 'big trims" but I quit that right before I came to TLHC.

Thanks for all the lovely replies, I am so pleased. Quoting a friend of mine ---- "I am so happy I could vomit rainbows" :D hahaha :cheese:

Your hair is simply stunning. I love love the curls!! Of course since I'm a straighty I long for those kinds of curls. We all want what we don't have, right? The color is beautiful. Congratulations on a great year of awesome growth!!!

Lovely hair - the shine, the color, the curl. The definition of tailbone I was given is "top of vertical smile." You are the only one among us who can know if it's there or not.

June 13th, 2008, 10:45 AM
I can't really tell if you are exactly at tailbone, but I had to reply to say your hair is amazingly gorgeous!
It seems like your hair grows fast so even if you're not quite there yet you probably will be in a month or so!

not wanting to sound thick but what is this? do you mean bum?

Errrrr I know where you're coming from on this, jojo - in my neck of the woods the 'vertical smile' is round the front... Perhaps it's different Stateside. Like the whole bum=dosser thing etc.

I think tailbone is the top of your butt-cheek-join.

Fantastic growth, colour, curl and shine there, SHEILAANN1969! Beautiful!

Oh so pretty! I noticed your new siggy and almost started a thread, but then saw this one. Your hair has grown so much, and your lovely 2c/3a-ness is gorgeous!

Thanks everyone for all the lovely compliments, of course you all know I wasn't REALLY fishing for them :D

I am amazed at my own hair, when I saw it in the pic I was like ...hmmmmmm, wow, is that really on my head? lol

I am thankful for TLHC, it's been a real eye opener.

I don't really do anything special, just stopped shampooing daily, mostly using non-sulphates and wash only every 5 days or so.

I CO like a mad woman, oil and moisturize a couple times daily. I stopped the constant brushing/ combing as well, that is when I discovered my curls.

I don't cut or trim, I now henna (I have henna'd 4 times I think, in the past year and I keep my hair up most of the time. That's about it, simple routine LHC stuff!

I appreciate every persons input on the boards that have gotten me to this point, I love my hair! And I love cheeeeeese :cheese:

Thanks everyone!!

Fantastic growth, colour, curl and shine there, SHEILAANN1969! Beautiful! thanks yeah same here, thanks maybe it s were the bum cheeks start mines more like a frown than a smile these days though!

I love the red color and curls too:)

WritingPrincess
June 13th, 2008, 02:27 PM
What beautiful curls! They're exactly the kind I would want if I had curly hair. I love the color of your hair as well, and I think you could definitely call it tailbone. I did when mine was that length, although I don't have layers.

Sana
June 13th, 2008, 06:45 PM
Wow shelliann, your hair has certainly grown a lot & it's so beautiful & I have to say that you have got the most amazing shade of red from the henna!!

Paniscus
June 13th, 2008, 07:18 PM
Yowzers! Nice growth! And I agree, those are pretty curls you've got there! Looks like tailbone to me...or if not, it's darn-near-close-to-it!

Wonderful head of hair you got there! Great color and curls.. and tailboneish, I'd say! If it was straight it'd be past TB probably, am I right?

Chamomilemaiden
June 14th, 2008, 09:11 AM
WOW, is that possible? Such growth? What are you doing? :)
I think you could be tailbone or almost tailbone. My longest hairs when stretched are at tailbone at 34.5 so why not :cheer:

Wow - Your hair is just gorgeous!! I'm always bowled over to see these "anniversary" pics and how big a difference a year can make in the healthy growth of members' hair.

Looks "tailbone" to me! ;o) Keep up the good work - it's obviously working well for you!

I have no advice about the whole tailbone thing but I do have a few smileys to add to your thread:

It grows very quick, between you and squiggy flop I am jealous!!.
my growth is nothing compared to SHELIAANN1969

(though i was happy to hear thet you are jealous of my growth)

i mean WOW! thats alot of growth.. and i thought mine was fast for going from shoulder to waist in 7 months.. SHELIAANN1969 i think we can give that medal of honor/jealousy to you..
you didnt mention trims.. i unfortunatly had to trim off 4 inches.. i like the way your hem line looks.. since you didnt say that you trimmed im going to assume that you didnt.. so thats an extra congrats on having such healthy looking ends without trimming.. :flowers:

Thanks for all the lovely replies, I am so pleased. Quoting a friend of mine ---- "I am so happy I could vomit rainbows" :D hahaha :cheese:

I love the idea of 'vomiting rainbows of happiness'!

Hard to tell exactly whether it's tailbone or not, due to your hemline: some is, some is not tailbone. Probably the longest bits are when wet or stretched out.

Either way in just one year you've had amazing progress, and I just love the flame red colour you have!

DrkAngel
June 22nd, 2008, 05:34 AM
WOW. either your hair grows super fast or mine grows at a snail's pace. (or maybe both now that I think of it). Your curls are gorgeous! And I love love love the color (I mean it!!) :)

DarkChocolate
June 23rd, 2008, 12:57 PM
Looking good:)
I love your color and you are lucky that you hair grows together:)
I am jealous of your curls. With soft curls like that you probally don't have a bad hair day:)
I always wanted curly hair when I was younger.

Xandergrammy

My vote is that if you yank on those beautiful curls, it'll be tailbone! No matter where it officially hits, your hair is gorgeous!!
