View Full Version : Feeling good about a recent hair decision! And 2nd Anniversary! n!

Hello LHCers, This month is my 2nd anniversary here! The time has flown and I get so much enjoyment from this place on a daily basis though I am more of a reader than a contributor.
I wanted to share that I've decided not to trim until April of 2013 because I want to start really gaining length. My hair has been in the neighborhood of 29" for a LONG time...I keep trimming away any progress I make. I just had a trim in April and I'd like to finally reach waist before I trim again ( and be enough past that I can stay below waist post trim!).
My wedding is in October so the more length the better for the half up curled style I'm planning on

And I know threads are more fun with pictures so here is an action shot from February when future hubs and I went to Magic Wings ( a butterfly conservatory in MA)

I like that decision...I will try to do the same. Let's see how it goes. My hair was at its longest when I had not trimmed it for a year.

beautiful hair! Your wedding is a good motivator. I will try not to trim in 2012 as well.

You did a good thing with all your trimming though your hair looks fantastic and healthy :thumbsup: a warning about the no trimming its great for the length you gain i did it last year but had to trim a fair bit recently due to thinner ends after nearly 11 months of no trimming.

Happy anniversary! :)
The picture looks like you'll reach waist soon, and you'll have beautiful hair for the wedding! Just a hint concerning your hair decision: going for a whole year without trims can be great for growth, but be sure to baby your ends and don't be afraid to do a little microtrim along the way if the ends are too damaged. You don't want to grow for a year and then have to take off quite a bit again because it looks scraggly.

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding and you second lhc anniversary! I remember when I grew out my bob I didn't trim for over a year and made so much progress! My one year is coming up here and I'm literally the same length I started with from trimming away progress as well as getting bleach damage and cutting in way too many layers. I guess I learned a lot the hard way but your post is very inspiring to gain length the good old fashioned way (determination and patience) Happy growing! Love your action shot as well.

I plan on keeping an eye on my ends I wear my hair up 90% of the time and I will micro trim if needed. I just really want to break through the 30" barrier I keep coming up against!
