View Full Version : 4 years and 2 months...has it really been that long?

October 18th, 2011, 10:54 PM
So it would appear that I have been a member of this fine community for over four years now! I was hoping to have 1,000 posts and minions by now, but maybe that will happen by year five :p

So without further ado, pictures!

**One note: I am all about quality over quantity, so in the quest for very healthy hair, I have probably cut off at least half of my growth. I don't have a super long length goal (TBL is the current thought), so I'm happy making my way slowly but surely.

Way back in fall of '07, about APL:

About fall of '08, BSL:

'09ish, close to waist:

Fall of '09, one of my favorites:

And fall of '10, maintaining at waist:

And then this year - late summer, solid hip when wet, flirting with hip when dry:

And finally, taken yesterday after a ~2" trim a few weeks ago:

I've also been doing henna glosses since early summer of this year, and you can see how it plays up the copper that occurs naturally in my hair. I love it!

Congratulations on four years! :flower: I my hair looks as beautiful as yours when it gets to hip length.

October 22nd, 2011, 03:59 PM
Wow! If that's what four years can do, I will extend my project timescale. (I'd only reckoned on 3 years - looking at your photos I am converted!) That said, you have worked to get it looking that glorious & every millimetre is a credit to you. :D
Goes back to re-examine photos & consider what I'm actually ready to do to get hair that glorious. :o

October 22nd, 2011, 07:26 PM
Beautiful hair. And I agree with you-the 2009 picture sure is stunning.

October 22nd, 2011, 07:36 PM
Soooo pretty!!! I just love your ends!
Very beautiful.

Masked Rose, your hair is absolutely breathtaking. I love the color, the length (in all the pictures), and the wave/curl. Good for you for taking excellent care of it and enjoying it as it grows out, trimming as you feel necessary. :)

October 26th, 2011, 08:45 PM
Hey you! It looks AMAZING. Has it really been four years?

October 26th, 2011, 08:50 PM
Ooh! I really hope my hair turns out as nice once it gets longer. I love your curl/wave pattern!
