View Full Version : One Year Longer and Wavier--Happy LHC anniversary to me!

March 22nd, 2012, 04:06 PM
I joined one year ago on St. Patty's Day! I'd chopped off my hair two months before and was looking to grow it out long again. I'd also decided to embrace the gray and join in with the wonderful Renegrays!(Thanks so much you guys!:flower:)

Anyway, I'd chopped it to barely shoulder and right now it's kissing BSL. I trimmed it once during that time back in January and got 1/2 an inch off. So, I didn't measure right away, but I think I was about 19 inches when I joined and now I'm about 25. Pretty average growth I guess. I've gone to CO washing with occasional CWC, and I still brush my wavy hair sometimes but have been introduced to combs and simple finger-combing in the shower. I love to do hairstick buns now when I had no idea what to do with my hair before except braid and ponytail it. So a big thank you for that!:flowers:

Since it seems to be customary to add pics, here they are!

About 2 weeks after joining, shampooed the night before and brushed to an inch of its life trying to obliterate the waves--
Sorry, I have no back-of-the-head pictures as I couldn't do one for the life of me and DD was no better at picture-taking at the time.

This is now, St. Patty's Day and most recent pics--(I thought about trying to make my hair prettier and get better pictures, but you should know what it really looks like at 1 year anyway, right? This is CO washed, slept on, uncombed hair:o--looks like my last hairtyping pic! I'm sorry I didn't even bother to put on makeup for you.:p)


So thank you LHC! I've enjoyed being with you for the past year!

Lovely wurls! Happy anniversary. Also, no way you need to apologize for not wearing makeup. (I think we need to accept our faces as they naturally are, but even if I didn't, you're one of those women who really doesn't need to cover anything up)

SunshineLiz, lovely! You look great and so does your hair. Lovely to see how soft and subtle the shades of your hair are. Very inspiring. I hope my silvers look like this when the henndigo finally grows out.

Congrats! Nice sparklies and waves! =)

Thanks all of you, you're all so sweet!:flower: My silver looks more subtle in the later picture because it's an indoor photo with flash. I can look quite white on one side if parted correctly and in the sun!

(And thanks, BlazingHeart! I actually don't wear makeup most of the time, but I usually try to for photos that I'm going to actually show to people so I don't look washed out.:o But I decided to go ahead and use those photos anyway.:))
