I can't believe it's been one year since I found this site. I don't get to post much now but I'm still a lurker who loves looking at all the great hair :D

I found this site in November 2010 ( so technically these pictures are a month late, sorry) and I started growing it ...Then in January 2011 I had about 4 inches cut off for a "fresh start" to the new year, then I had another small trim in Feb. 2011 and a dusting in August... then I pretty much left it alone.

so here is my progress....:D

November 2010: My starting point:

January 2011:


and ...December 2011 My one year !:D

Thanks for all the great tips! Now that I'm working I have to do a little more to my hair than usual. So I am trying my hardest to keep it healthy! I can't wait till next year to see my progress...Tailbone here I come.:D

How beautiful and shiny! Can't wait to see how it looks at hip!

I could have sworn I posted yesterday? Maybe I didn't press submit...busy day at work and sneaking in some computer time :)


Thanks for all the nice comments. When I started back to work I had a brief phase of wanting to cut my hair off into a pixie again, I'm glad I waited that phase out!! :D I would have regreted it.

I have to do more to my hair now that I'm working, but I'm trying my best to keep it healthy and not use much heat... I do miss being able to just oil my hair and leave it in all day :)

thanks again and I can't wait to get to tailbone!

Your hair is gorgeous! So thick and such quick growth. Congratulations, at this rate you'll get to your goal in no time. :)

Really lovely! What strikes me is you have no breakage/frizzies on the top! Just long thick healthy looking! I have fine hair that breaks easily so I doubt I'll ever get hair that looks this great!

December 31st, 2011, 12:25 AM
Excellent hair!

It was nice when you came but now it is really showing it's full potential! :) It's going to be so awesome at tailbone.

Happy growing. :D

Your hair is so beautiful! Never looked damaged at the start either.

December 31st, 2011, 11:01 AM
Amazing progress, your hair is so thick! I'm envious of anyone who has virgin hair like you, because your hair looks lovely so easily! Mine is so dyed that I feel like I have to grow out completely new hair to have it look good :p

December 31st, 2011, 01:25 PM
Looks lovely - thick, glossy and healthy. :)

Thank you but it's not virgin hair :) I wish it was!... my natural hair is lighter (more of a reddish/auburn-ish/ brown mix). I use a dark wash or semi/vegetable dye to get a darker color. I changed how I cared for it, but I'm still dying it...probably always will to keep it the color I want. :D

Amazing, excellent job! Congratulations on a year of healthy, shiny hair and wonderful growth. :D Can't wait to see next year's thread!

January 1st, 2012, 10:30 AM
WOW!!!!! That is all I have to say! WOW!

Your hair looks very healthy, shiny, and super thick! I love the color and you've had great growth. Can I have your hair? :D
