View Full Version : Two Years!

Today marks two years since I've joined LHC. Though I haven't always been active on the forums, I've been actively growing out my hair with LHC methods since then.


Pictures have been edited out. Sorry for the inconvenience!


I went from APL to waist in two years. This included about 3 inches being trimmed off. My length isn't the only thing that changed, however. I started out as a dedicated CO washer who oiled with coconut oil and loved her Body Shop wooden comb more than anything. I also only used hair sticks or my Ficcare Maximus to secure my hair.

Now, I shampoo with sulfate-free shampoo (since COing makes the hair to my shoulders go limp from being over moisturized) and I use sunflower/olive oil and my Tangle Teezer. Plus, I've fallen in love with hair forks and Flexi-8's (curse all of you enablers).

I just wanted to say thank you to every LHCer out there. Thank you to the newbies, who offered up questions that I researched until I found a correct answer. Thank you to the gurus, who answered questions and presented inspiration to us all. And thank you to everyone in between for all your love and support.

I love you guys! :cloud9:
