View Full Version : My One Year Post

October 31st, 2011, 07:33 AM
I'm a few days late with this. When I joined LHC one year ago my hair looked like this:


Today it looks like this (I probably should have combed it or something, eek. :o):


I grew out from a pixie, chopped off the mullet twice...probably 2 inches total, maybe 3...to even things up.

Never thought I could grow my hair longer than shoulder length. I didn't think I had the knowledge or the patience for it. You all shared the knowledge with me and the patience is still being worked on (I have a trimming problem) but this is the longest and healthiest my hair has been in my life. I know it isn't long by LHC standards, but when you've had hair chin length or shorter for 39 years this feels long. ;)

Thanks to everyone for the time you take to answer questions and offer advice. I wouldn't have made it this far otherwise.

Wow that's a lot of length. I'm glad you found the advice and support you needed to grow it longer.

Happy Anniversary! You've sure got a lot of growth in just a year. Looks like you've got some waves in there, too.

Thanks everyone! My hair grows really quickly (about an inch a month) in the summer but then slows down a lot during the winter. I actually do have a lot of natural wave in my hair but henna has killed that for whatever reason...added weight maybe?

^_______^ Congratulations hun, that is a tremendous achievement for your first year! It looks wonderful. I know what you mean about your hair feeling long too! I hope I can get as much growth in my first year as you did. Happy continued growing.

It's great that you've successfully defeated the mullet :D From here on out, I think it will be happy growing with barely any trims needed! Congratulations!

Congrats on your growth! Henna also killed my waves, went from a 2a to a 1b/1c. I wasn't crazy wavy to begin with, but still.

That's amazing progress, especially with trims!
