BLIMEY! OK, you're making me feel shabby :D I joined before you with hair the same length and I only just hit BSL.

Congratulations, EllisGurl, on achieving waist length hair, and your hair looks so thick and healthy! It is quite a transformation from 2005!

July 1st, 2008, 04:18 AM
Thank you every body!!!

what do you use to color your hair?

the end result is very nice:)

My hair is naturally the colour of black coffee. The damage is from a box of highlight that had ammonia in it.

I've used Catherine's henna mixed with clove for about a year and a half. I henna about once avery two months.

I LOVE it. Not to be of offense, but it looks SO much better than before. The length, texture.. Even the colour, with your skin tone, is so much more beautiful :D

No offense taken. It was a total wreck before!

And at waist dry, not stretched -- a real milestone with such thick wavy hair!

It looks lovely!

Henna, has pulled out all of what curl I had but that's OK with me. All my curls ever did was look frizzy!

July 1st, 2008, 04:33 AM
Nice growth! and it looks so healthy i'm also loving the colour! congrats:D

July 1st, 2008, 06:00 AM

congratulations! your hair looks absolutely amazing!
we're not hairtwins or anything but i can only hope my color will look that rich when it's that long!

August 10th, 2008, 07:31 AM
Thanks everyone!!!

nostalgic: my hair colour has always been one of my favorite features. It has natural red highlights but henna definitely makes a difference. Because my hair is so dark anyway, it doesn't change the colour, it just deepens it.

August 10th, 2008, 07:37 AM

Huge improvement. xD

August 10th, 2008, 07:47 AM
Wow, that's one incredible hemline! So even and thick - do you have ANY taper? :wink: Congratulations on reaching your goal -- it sure looks amazing :flower:
