View Full Version : August 2011 measure-in :D

August 1st, 2011, 12:46 PM
It's August 1st, which means a new measure-in thread :D

I'm at 107cm (42.1'')

August 1st, 2011, 12:57 PM
I measured several times and got around 30". :cheese: In another month or two I'll be solidly at waist! :D

August 1st, 2011, 01:09 PM
Poo...... I gained a whole inch in June and was hoping the same for July. It didn't happen!! My hair has its own plans. So I measure in at 24 1/2"( which is below BSL) so by the end of this month, or by the 29th of this month I shall be at 25". That still seems so short compared to most of you lovely long haired beauties.

August 1st, 2011, 01:10 PM
I dont kniw what happend but i measured my hair in at 36", while i really thought i had 37 already.
hmm we'll see next month :) its long anyway

August 1st, 2011, 01:43 PM
I'm at 93cm, which is 36.6 inches.

August 1st, 2011, 01:46 PM
I only measured about 10 days ago for the first time, so it seemed a little silly to measure again, but I'm glad I did. 28.25 inches. A quarter inch in 10 days isn't bad, I think? If I can keep this up, I'll have waist length by Halloween :D

August 1st, 2011, 01:50 PM
30 inches :) <3 It was my orginal goal, but I like it soooooo much I have a new goal 36" <3

August 1st, 2011, 01:52 PM
i measured for the first time a little bit ago...29 inches =)

August 1st, 2011, 01:53 PM
I measured earlier this week and got 29". Two inches to Hip length, woohoo! :cheese: I hope I'll be there by the end of this summer!

August 1st, 2011, 01:55 PM
30" which is just below BSL when dry & curly.

August 1st, 2011, 01:57 PM
I grew 1/4 of an inch this month, so I'm at 26.75 inches. My BSL is at 29 inches (I know, long torso) so I still have a long way to go. I'm hoping to be there by the end of the year.

August 1st, 2011, 02:07 PM
26 inches :D 4 more to go till waist :D

August 1st, 2011, 02:50 PM
Lol, 19.5 inches! Not even APL. I am most envious of all the lovely long hair you ladies have!

August 1st, 2011, 03:12 PM
This past month I grew an inch, now at 19"!! :D If my hair keeps this up I should be at APL by Halloween! :)

August 1st, 2011, 03:48 PM
3,5'':o So short...

August 1st, 2011, 04:12 PM
I currently measure in at 20 inches... Yay me! :)

August 1st, 2011, 04:34 PM
28.5 inches. I trimmed last weekend, about an inch I thiiiink.

August 1st, 2011, 05:04 PM
I'm at 88cm (34.6). that's about 0.5"of growth

August 1st, 2011, 05:11 PM
My SO measured for me two days ago, that'll have to do it : he said mostly 154 cm (60.6 inches), although the few longest hairs were 160 cm (63 inches).

August 1st, 2011, 06:54 PM
I'm at 17 1/4 inches. I think I'm up 1/2 inch.

August 1st, 2011, 08:18 PM
26.5! 1 inch!

August 1st, 2011, 08:25 PM
18 inches shoulder.
Waist is somewhere around 31ish.
So 31-18= 13 inches to go. *sigh*
I'm going to guess... Maybe two years till then...
Hopefully I'll be transferring to UC Santa Cruz by then, so sometimes i just tell myself that I have things to look forward to. That gets me through the day :)

August 1st, 2011, 09:20 PM
I'm at 26", which is right on target. No huge growth spurts for me. I do have a tube of Monistat needing to be used up....

August 1st, 2011, 09:22 PM
36 1/2 up 1/2 in.

August 1st, 2011, 09:44 PM
40.75 inches after my 1/4-inch trim...anything over 40 is really long to me, so I am just enjoying it!

August 1st, 2011, 09:45 PM
20". I have a long way to go!

August 1st, 2011, 10:39 PM
I am 46.25 inches, measured wet, which is 1/4 inch growth. It is thigh length when wet and about tailbone length when dry with bun waves. It is probably shorter when curly but I rarely let it get naturally curly.

August 1st, 2011, 10:55 PM
I'm sitting at 19" and my goal is 36" so I'm just over half way there! Yay me! If my hair continues to grow at it's current rate @1/2" per month it will take three years if I dont trim my hair the entire time.

August 1st, 2011, 11:58 PM
I'll join in, so at least I'll have a record somewhere.

Starting again, as I just cut a lot off to get rid of damage. :-( At 16.5" today, hovering just at shoulder.

August 2nd, 2011, 01:07 AM
15.5" here. Not too shabby considering how short it was at the beginning of the summer.

August 2nd, 2011, 01:18 AM
17.5 inches, not so bad really. I grew about 3/4 inch in a little over a month. Still a long way to go to reach my goals though!

August 2nd, 2011, 01:38 AM
Just 19 inches, 2 till apl:(

August 2nd, 2011, 02:32 AM
32.5 inches. Not bad considering I had to trim it. :D

August 2nd, 2011, 03:07 AM
im at 27.8 arghh i just want to be at 28 haha.. I think when I measured 27 inches (which was like 2 months or more ago) I may have over estimated so I'm going to wait untill I am officially at 28 before "updating" my "current length" and signature haha but congrats everyone on their great hair growth and taking care of their hair :D

August 2nd, 2011, 03:39 AM
28", but the ends look quite pitiful... Wait a minute, not the ends, more half my length, really/ And it is still a long road to waist, let alone waist with more or less decent hemline.
Oh, the things I bear for my hair...

August 2nd, 2011, 04:02 AM
62 cm / 24.4 inches.

August 2nd, 2011, 05:10 AM
About 16.25". I can't be bothered to try to be exact.

August 2nd, 2011, 05:21 AM
I got 29" a point somewhere, sort of almost 30" yay !! started at 27"

August 2nd, 2011, 12:54 PM
I gained half an inch so I'm at 47.5". I'm thinking about not growing it longer than 48". It starts looking not too good when it's down. :rolleyes:

August 2nd, 2011, 01:21 PM
About 50.75", or up ~0.5".

Some of my eyelashes are still in residence and have stayed blonde. My scalp has still some minor hair, growing in blonde and other dark brunette (my normal colour).

Iv noticed a few arm hairs, havent had those in years.

It looks like the extra servings of liver boiled in water is doing the trick. I may loose it all in a couple of months due to the stress Im under from this &#37;^&** ATOS benefit assesment test.

August 2nd, 2011, 03:17 PM
29 in! I'm gawking at my 1 in growth since last month!!

August 3rd, 2011, 01:43 AM
29 5/8"... I've only gained 1 1/4" since I last measured in April. Granted, I *did* trim off the more porous, breakable tips, which were likely the longest parts of my hair. I'd rather drop a little unhealthy hair and slow my progress than deal with ratty, broken ends.

August 3rd, 2011, 05:07 AM
sigh...measuring the lhc way of starting from hair line at my forehead won't reflect my length accurately, until my hair is much longer.my longest strands are about 4.5 inches...and it grows sooooo slowly

August 4th, 2011, 10:33 AM
My hair grew 1" this month which brings me to 43". This was my ORIGINAL GOAL length :cheese::cheese::cheese:

Being a true Longhair though I revised my goal length months ago and I am headed to knee :D

August 8th, 2011, 09:02 PM
I am at 28 inches

August 8th, 2011, 09:24 PM
I'm at 42" this month, which was my original goal when I joined :D I extended my goal to classic, of course :o

August 9th, 2011, 08:34 AM
I'm finally at 37".

August 9th, 2011, 08:50 AM
A little past 40". I didn't get quite my half inch this month despite at least 2 weeks of monistat.

I can't remember my original goal, I think TBL (38"). I don't have a goal now. I am considering terminal, but honestly don't think I can handle it. But I am super curious what my term length is. My only real goal is virgin TBL hair. I have about 6 years to go. SIGH.

August 9th, 2011, 09:05 AM
Doesn't seem like my hair grew any this month.. I know my bangs did but the length didn't seem to.

August 9th, 2011, 10:00 AM
My hair definitely seems to slow down in growth in summer but I still get the average 6" a year.

August 9th, 2011, 10:05 AM
went from 32 to 32.25, that's right, a whopping quarter inch. On the positive side, I have more waves since starting to CO wash and that may have sucked up a quarter inch in length. At least I'm hoping so since the ends if anything look better.

August 9th, 2011, 10:17 AM
I'm at 26" :) Waiting for waist! :)

August 10th, 2011, 04:20 PM
I'm at 28 inches:cheese:

August 10th, 2011, 07:44 PM
19" :cheese:

2.5 years ago when I started growing at 20.5", I never thought 19 would be something to celebrate - but it grew a whole inch in a month for the first time ever!

August 10th, 2011, 08:12 PM
19" :) My next goal is 31, haha, I'm aiming high! :D (It will take me at least 5 years...*sigh*)

August 10th, 2011, 10:25 PM
34in, just about hip length. My "bangs" are just about SL and my sides are at waist.

August 11th, 2011, 10:46 PM
27.75" Whoo! I had to do a happy dance.

August 11th, 2011, 11:45 PM
22.5" or so, which puts me about 1.5" from BSL. So I should be there in November or so, depending on how long summer continues (I stall bad when it gets hot out). And waist is only three inches past that. So my hope of waist-length hair by the end of my junior year is starting to look possible.... I'm hoping for solid hip by the time I graduate.

August 12th, 2011, 04:59 AM
23" .... But it's layered up so I think i'll leave it another 6months before I measure again... it's feeling healthier and that's all that matters :-D

August 12th, 2011, 08:04 AM
Right. I quit measuring months ago because it was driving me a little crazy. I can see by comparing photos that my hair is longer, but I just got out my measuring tape and I got the same number as my last measurement. 38 inches.
