View Full Version : When I lean my head back . . .

April 29th, 2011, 09:34 PM
I searched and didn't see a thread like this. Related to mini-milestones, but not quite!

I get SO EXCITED when I can lean my head back and tickle new places. ;-) A few days ago I noticed that when I lean my head back, my ends are at my (temporary) goal of tailbone! Aieeee!

If I really arch my back, I can touch my ends to classic, which is my final destination.

So . . . where are your ends when you lean, wriggle, arch, or otherwise contort backwards? And how happy does that make YOU? :cheese:

About hip. It makes me very happy, because even just a few months ago it was more like waist.

April 29th, 2011, 09:54 PM
When I tilt my head back I'm at hip! Woooo! I can't wait until I'm finally there I will be so happy.

April 29th, 2011, 10:00 PM
I love this!
When I lean back, it is just barely classic! Woot!

April 29th, 2011, 10:20 PM
am only at waist-but am not flexible so can't arch much-

If I lean back, I'm BSL+.... :crush:

If I lean back my hair touches the floor. But does it count that I can lean all the way back into a backbend? :o

hahahaha !! :lol:

I'm at tailbone when I lean my head back

Mine too! I manage to scrape the end of my (sadly short) braid on the floor during ballet. Having a very flexible back = this not being an effective way to measure hair growth.

When I tilt my head back its at about hip length :)

April 29th, 2011, 11:43 PM

Me too! I can't wait to actually be there! lol

April 30th, 2011, 12:33 AM
I'm at waist when I lean back. Hurry!!!!

April 30th, 2011, 12:54 AM
Classic when I lean back - so close to my goal! :D

April 30th, 2011, 01:16 AM
If I lean my head back, my hair reaches to my hipbones. :)

April 30th, 2011, 01:23 AM
When I tilt my head back my hair is knee length, when I lean back it's ankle length. :)

April 30th, 2011, 02:07 AM
If I lean back: waist!
If I lean back more: hips! But that's some serious leaning back ;) BSL, waist and hips are within ~20 cm (8") on my body, though.. maybe even less :)

April 30th, 2011, 03:51 AM
when I tilt my head.. it's tailbone!

(and I'm super envious of the floor touchers!!!)

April 30th, 2011, 03:56 AM
when I lean mt head back I'm at waist!!! I love it!!!!

*Rose Red*
April 30th, 2011, 04:15 AM
I love this and do it from time to time to see how long my hair can be :D Only a few weeks and then can reach the chair :)

April 30th, 2011, 04:48 AM
Hehe when I do this I get to BCL ;) Nice since I'm not quite at waist yet lol!!

April 30th, 2011, 04:51 AM
When I lean my head far back, my hair just about brushes classic, and then I get all excited. Then it hits me that I'm a few years away from that. *sigh*

April 30th, 2011, 06:55 AM
I get midway between APL and BSL!

April 30th, 2011, 08:33 AM
Looks like it's knee for me : )

April 30th, 2011, 09:31 AM
Its apl for me! :)

April 30th, 2011, 09:32 AM
Having a very flexible back = this not being an effective way to measure hair growth.

That's why it's so much FUN. :D

April 30th, 2011, 09:34 AM
If I lean back: waist!
If I lean back more: hips! But that's some serious leaning back ;)

I think we've discovered a new flexibility regimen. :p

April 30th, 2011, 09:52 AM
Leaning back is one of my very favoritest motivators!! When I lean back, I'm between BCL & TBL!! TBL is my goal right now so it's very SQUEE worthy!!

April 30th, 2011, 10:40 AM
I can tip myself back to tailbone as well! Now, If I only had something very interesting to look up at all the time, and someone following me around with a flash to make the hair look super shiny, I would be golden! (pun intended, lol)

April 30th, 2011, 03:33 PM
When I lean my head back I'm at about waist.
Oh hair growth gods how you tease me so! :p

April 30th, 2011, 03:42 PM
Im at hip....hip...hooray! (wish I was for real :D)

When I lean back I'm only a hands width away from classic!!!! :D

April 30th, 2011, 04:56 PM
I can bend very far at all, but it goes to BSL. But even that makes me happy because it's growing! Yay!

May 1st, 2011, 05:59 AM
When lean back I'm at tailbone :D

May 1st, 2011, 06:04 AM
when I lean back I'm at BSL! Hopefully not long until it is :)

May 1st, 2011, 06:32 AM
Feels wonderful.

May 1st, 2011, 06:47 AM
When i lean my head back, my longest hair is just 4 cm away from waist.

May 1st, 2011, 07:02 AM
I can mak my hair reach tailbone, which is my goal, by leaning back. So yay! :)

May 1st, 2011, 07:25 AM
When I lean my head back it's about halfway between hip and tailbone. If I bend my back I can touch the floor, so it doesnt count really.

May 1st, 2011, 10:43 AM
Yesterday I was walking barefoot, with my hair down, and as I walked I could feel my hair ticling my heels - great feeling ! So that's what I get when tilting my head back.

May 1st, 2011, 10:55 AM
I'm at my crack! :D

May 1st, 2011, 11:01 AM
:cheese:When I lean back in the shower....my wet hair touches my *ahem* crack!:cheese:

May 2nd, 2011, 07:16 AM
If I tilt my hair back it's between past waist and tailbone, which is my goal so yay =D (if it's over my shoulders and I hunch a bit, it tickles my elbows which made me ridiculously happy xD)

May 2nd, 2011, 09:54 AM
when I arch my back I feel my hair tickling my tailbone.
Love to do that! Can't wait to actually be able of walking around feeling that, it's so cool!

May 2nd, 2011, 09:57 AM
If I lean back, I'm BSL+.... :crush:

Me too!!!!

May 2nd, 2011, 08:10 PM
When I lean my head back, I'm at armpit length!

May 2nd, 2011, 08:17 PM
Between hip and TB :-)

May 2nd, 2011, 08:18 PM
If I lean my head back... my hair is at waist. If I really arch, it can get to almost hip! :D

May 2nd, 2011, 09:30 PM
When I lean back, I'm at BSL, and when I really stretch my neck I'm about half way to waist. Le sigh. The dreams...

May 2nd, 2011, 09:45 PM
Mine nears the floor when I bend backwards but I bend REALLY far back ;). If I'm just tilting my head back my hair touches tailbone.

May 5th, 2011, 03:58 AM
I tried this in the shower this morning. When I tip my head back with my back straight I'm at BCL! :D If I arch a little, I'm at tailbone. Can't wait until I'm there with dry hair and a normal posture. :)

May 5th, 2011, 05:16 AM
When I lean back my hair is waist +. It makes me kinda ... impatient :D But happy too.

May 5th, 2011, 02:50 PM
Mine is a little past BSL when I lean back. So close!!

May 5th, 2011, 03:01 PM
Leaning back, body straight...mid-thigh. I have no plans to grow that long, tho!

May 5th, 2011, 03:26 PM
I've loved doing this ever since I joined LHC! :D

When I tilt my head back as far as I can without arching my back, my hair reaches just above classic length! Yay!

I don't know how long it is if I arch... I think I'm too flexible for that to count!

May 6th, 2011, 04:18 AM
When I lean back my head my hair is a little past classic. If I arch my back it reaches knee :D

May 6th, 2011, 04:41 AM
I am glad I am not the only one who does this just to experience the feeling of the required length :p

if I lean back my head I am classic, and that feels so nice <3

May 7th, 2011, 11:22 PM
My ends brush the backs of my knees...if I lean really far, my calves. Thighs, why are you so long. :p

May 8th, 2011, 02:56 AM
when i lean my head back i reach my tattoo which is around hip length.. my goal is to have it cover up my whole tattoo without having to lean back.... yup its a while away but still exciting

May 8th, 2011, 05:27 AM
I only have to tilt my head back a little to get to BSL. Tilt back further and it's way past :D

I remember the amazing feeling of tilting my head and having it touch my hips but that time will come again!

May 8th, 2011, 06:00 AM
When I do it, which isn't much arch at all thanks to body pain, I am a bit past classic. Yay! :D
It's like a trip into the future.

May 8th, 2011, 07:40 AM
A good tilt of my head back and suddenly I can sit on my hair!

May 8th, 2011, 08:14 AM
If I lean my head back as far as I possibly can I am ALMOST at tailbone. One day I hope. :D

May 8th, 2011, 11:51 AM
Past knee, upper calf.

May 9th, 2011, 03:31 PM
When I do it I'm at about hip! :cheese: I would looove to actually get to this length, gah.

May 9th, 2011, 03:46 PM
I've not done this is years.
Lower waist, it makes me very happy.

May 9th, 2011, 08:39 PM
A happy mid-thigh! :D

December 30th, 2011, 04:20 AM
This thread makes me smile :)

I've got my hair in braids right now, but it reaches a little past TBL when I lean back :)

December 30th, 2011, 04:53 AM
tailbone length suits me very well :P

December 30th, 2011, 05:27 AM
When I arch backward its hip length :crush:

December 30th, 2011, 05:46 AM
Just past classic!

December 30th, 2011, 06:50 AM
If I lean back, I'm at waist...my goal. It makes me feel impatient.:rolleyes:

December 30th, 2011, 07:21 AM
When I lean my head back, I'm at tailbone. Hard to believe it isn't true!

December 30th, 2011, 07:23 AM
I would love to see what my hair does when I get a little more length like some of you. My ends curl up. I am not very flexible. I can get my hair just past the shoulder blades doing this.

December 30th, 2011, 07:35 AM
Mine tickles my waist :) Its funny how its added to my 'hair wish list'......up until now, I would read posts of the super-long haired and dream of reaching their lengths, now I read their posts about leaning back and im hankering after an extra foot! Waaaaah! ;)

December 30th, 2011, 07:41 AM
When I bend backwards mine is waist or near it.

December 30th, 2011, 08:08 AM
When I lean back, my ends touch mid-thigh :D

December 30th, 2011, 10:13 AM
Past TBL! :D

December 30th, 2011, 10:25 AM
Hehehe such fun! I'm definitely at TBL that way!

December 30th, 2011, 10:34 AM
I barely have to tip my head at all to be at waist length - next month I should be there for real! Tipping my head back I"m at tailbone, and with a bit of arch I can sit on it.

December 30th, 2011, 10:43 AM
I'm in between tailbone and classic when I tip my head back. I like it, maybe I should change my goal to tailbone : )

December 30th, 2011, 10:45 AM
I am at TBL when i lean back!:)

Lean back.. lean back.. lean back.. i think about that rap song hehe:p

December 30th, 2011, 12:36 PM
Just had to try:). I'm at TB while leaning my head back!!! Woohoo :cheese: !!!

December 30th, 2011, 05:47 PM
When I lean back I feel the hair tickling me around my tailbone. I love the feeling!!!

December 30th, 2011, 07:29 PM
I felt something tickle my bum in the shower and I realized it was my hair :lol: I'm about halfway down my behind if I tip my head over I think, but I haven't done it in a while for some odd reason.

December 30th, 2011, 07:36 PM
BCL, I'm not sure if I am committed to growing there yet...

December 30th, 2011, 08:52 PM
I'm at BSL if I tip my head right back. I haven't been at BSL for years, so I'm finally getting there (again!) :D
