View Full Version : January 2012 Measure In

January 2nd, 2012, 11:14 AM
Holding steady at 28"; microtrimming to try and thicken up my hemline.

January 2nd, 2012, 11:23 AM
32 inches :) waist length! wrong measurement sorry, 28-29 was the edge of midback i am now in my 30's :)

It does shrink and extend a lot though, annoying when it does since it has grown a lot since my last trim.

January 2nd, 2012, 11:25 AM
I just trimmed so I'm back to 38.5 inches

January 2nd, 2012, 12:49 PM
I trimmed 3 days ago so I'm back to 48,7".
1.3" to go till goal length. :)

January 2nd, 2012, 01:05 PM
at 26 " was 26 & 1/4" but i trimmed^^ my hem is much neater now

January 2nd, 2012, 01:12 PM
I trimmed recently, so I am at 23.5.

January 2nd, 2012, 01:18 PM
Only 24 inches for me, which is half way between apl and MBL on me. :( grow, damn you hair!

January 2nd, 2012, 01:31 PM
26 and a half, so not much growth in December. I gotta update my current picture now, ugh.

January 2nd, 2012, 03:01 PM
30.5! I've finally reached waist!!:cheese:

January 2nd, 2012, 03:11 PM
This was my first time measuring, exciting! I've reached 30 ", my longest parts are almost touching waist. I'm really tall myself though so my hair needs to grow a little more to finally reach waist.

January 2nd, 2012, 03:17 PM
28.75 inches

January 2nd, 2012, 03:47 PM
I need to get a trim though, so I won't be at 18" for much longer. :p

January 2nd, 2012, 04:11 PM
gained.5 inch since my last measure.. starting this year at 23.5 with my first offical stripe shirt .. 2011 was 4 inch trim so hopefully it's all growing in 2012 at least to hitting the next double stripe line :)


January 2nd, 2012, 04:34 PM
Yay! Just measured, I'm almost at 27 inches. Should be BSL soon.

January 2nd, 2012, 04:39 PM
44.5" as of 1/1/12 :) I'll be trimming 0.5" soon, though.

January 2nd, 2012, 04:49 PM
measured wet, 25"!

January 2nd, 2012, 04:56 PM
a smidge less than 33.75"

January 2nd, 2012, 05:14 PM
23.5" but I really need a microtrim. :( So Probably 23" when I'm done tonight.

Only at 24.5 inches so only about 0.5 inch growth in about 3 months :( although it does seem bushier so maybe different hairs on my head are growing, just not the ones for length :confused: Will probably not get to waist till next summer

January 2nd, 2012, 07:20 PM
24.5, just made it to APL

January 2nd, 2012, 07:26 PM
35.5" (almost BCL) but getting ready to trim a little. I'm just trying to work up enough nerve and strength to let go of an inch or two but may just settle on a microtrim instead. :)

January 2nd, 2012, 07:30 PM
31.5" WOOHOO. Changing my goal to 37".

January 2nd, 2012, 07:32 PM
Looks like I'm about at 32". :) In another year I should be at my goal.

January 2nd, 2012, 08:57 PM
47cm which I think is like 18.5".

January 2nd, 2012, 09:02 PM
I am about 17.5 inches. 18 inches is shoulder blade length on me. I call it upper shoulder length.

January 2nd, 2012, 09:16 PM
I'm at 18.5".

I had it trimmed in early December, and hope to not need a trim until at least June. It definitely does not feel long by any means, but it's starting to feel not depressingly short. It's past my collarbone stretched now and I'm hoping to reach APL this year.

January 2nd, 2012, 09:21 PM
Measured on Jan. 1 at 38":cheese:

January 3rd, 2012, 01:49 AM
24 3/4! Not going to update my profile till it's 25 inches though. :)

January 3rd, 2012, 04:30 AM
I'm starting this year at 24 inches. Only two inches left to BSL! :)

January 3rd, 2012, 12:37 PM
I am starting off the year at a firm 28", which is MBL for me. :bounce:

January 3rd, 2012, 03:54 PM
Measured today after taking about a month off due to the holidays and it was 23.25 inches.

January 3rd, 2012, 10:46 PM
I am about 23.5 inches :/

I swear my hair doesn't grow, it's been this length for two month now. I'm hoping this stall will end soon.

January 3rd, 2012, 10:49 PM
I am 21.5" this month. This is after a microtrim of about ~0.25-0.5". Was 21" one month ago which means I have grown about 0.75" or so since last month. :D

January 3rd, 2012, 11:09 PM
I am at 54 1/2". Recently did a 2" trim. Think I will wait about another year and do a major cut-as in 'classic' maybe.

January 3rd, 2012, 11:12 PM
Anyone still here? I can't start a thread for some reason and have a question about protiens?

January 3rd, 2012, 11:18 PM
I am at 43.5 inches, which is just a month's growth away from my "real LHC goal", since when I first started reading here, I thought 44 inches sounded just incredibly long! I'll probably keep growing just to see but I'd like to see classic with a great hemline someday, so I'll probably be trimming a bit more once I'm past the 44 marker, which is where I'm claiming solid classic, too! :D

In other news, I did the biggest trim ever on dd7. Her hair was solidly past classic when stretched (she has about 3a curls), and we took off a good 2 inches, so she is back to just past tailbone with much nicer ends, and we were able to keep a little mini ponytail for her baby book of some of the last of her blonde hair, as it is darkening as she gets older. Both of us are very happy with it. Just had to share somewhere that would get it...a big deal to us, and no one else will even notice...haha.

January 3rd, 2012, 11:30 PM
I'm at 26.5 inches and past waist and on my way to hip! Yay!!!

January 4th, 2012, 10:42 AM
55.75". My goal this year is to get aggressive about trimming out splits regularly, in addition to my usual trims every 3-4 months.

January 4th, 2012, 11:23 AM
Just measured in at 24". Surprised I got a half inch since Dec. 17. I somehow forgot that hair does grow, lol. Still quite a bit longer until waist since I have a long torso.

January 4th, 2012, 11:48 AM
I'm sure the tapemeasure doesn't read any different than the last couple months but it looks longer.

January 4th, 2012, 11:51 AM
I reached my first goal - 30". I think I'll be aiming for waist now - which should be about 34". I'm also hoping to thicken up my hemline. Maybe go for a trim in late February.

January 4th, 2012, 11:54 AM
My friend Jennie help me measure it today and it's 42.5.
It's been five month since I joined the LHC and I so exited to see the long term results of the things I've learned here.
I resently dicided to stop trimming for awhile and see if my ends can take it, I hope so cause I'm much more carful and always wear my hair up since I joined.

January 4th, 2012, 11:55 AM
32" after a half inch trim a couple weeks ago.

January 4th, 2012, 11:59 AM
70 cm (umm... 27.5" for you Imperial folks!)

Here, waist! C'mon, pretty, pretty, waist length...

January 4th, 2012, 12:23 PM
Just cut 3" off mine again. Back to 29 or 30 inches.

January 4th, 2012, 12:44 PM
Last trim for me was last Feb 2011, at pixie length. I did no more trims/cuts after that.
I joined LHC in July 2011 at 7".
January 2012 I am 9.75"

I plan on not trimming for 2012 as well. If I do need to trim...I will wait until december, hopefully by then my hair is long enough that I can see all of it and just s&D myself..really don't want to go to the salon.

Awww, now you done it.
Now I have to take my hair down to measure it...


wicked kisses
January 4th, 2012, 12:49 PM
Looks like it grew...

33" now.

January 4th, 2012, 11:19 PM
I'm at about 28 1/2 inches. My next goal is waist which is 29 inches.

January 4th, 2012, 11:22 PM
Hmm...I don't generally measure it. I have reached BSL though, after a 1/4" trim in December. Hoping to get to waist this summer (only 3" away).

January 5th, 2012, 06:42 PM
I'm at 32 5/8", somehow it grew 7/8" last month. At this rate, I'll have TB for Christmas!

January 6th, 2012, 11:09 AM
32 1/2 inches if I did it right. Just about 2 1/2 inches to TB depending.


January 6th, 2012, 11:21 AM
I just found out I've been measuring incorrectly.

January 6th, 2012, 11:29 AM
I'm at 20.25". Still a ways to go to waist, but I'm content to wait. :)

January 6th, 2012, 09:47 PM
My DH measured for me and I am at 45 inches :D

January 7th, 2012, 05:30 AM
Still at 31" for me, which is rather disappointing as my hair seems to have forgotten its in its growth spurt season!

January 8th, 2012, 07:38 AM
I am measuring in today at 26" exactly which means I grew 0.5" this month :)

January 8th, 2012, 08:25 AM
Just cut an inch off, I was almost to 29, now I'm almost to 28. Goal is 36.

January 8th, 2012, 09:02 AM
My hair is about 7 inches from bra strap length. My hair I think is going through a growth spurt.

January 8th, 2012, 12:00 PM
65 cm or about 25.5 inches. I'm 3 cm or slightly more than an inch below my bra strap.

January 8th, 2012, 01:12 PM
21.5 I am about 4 inches away from BSL and 9 away from waist: my goal.

January 8th, 2012, 02:10 PM
28 inches, that's almost at my waist. Seven more inches and I'll reach my goal.

January 8th, 2012, 03:28 PM
I measured at 25.5 the stylist cut off an inch when I requested half an inch :steam
