Hi everyone, it's already the 1st of August here in Europe and I wanted to open this topic for this month because I reached my goal which I stated when I joined LHC last April. I'm at 32" I gained 0.5" in the last 2 weeks plus I had a trim of 0.5" so totally 1" in July.How much did you gain? :cheese::cheese::cheese::cheese:

It's still the 31st here, but today was hair-washing day, so I measured.

February-61"
March-61.5"
April-62"
May-62.5"
June-63"
July- 63.75"
August- 64.5"

Before June, I was only getting 1/2" per month, but in early June I started taking biotin, and now I'm getting 3/4" per month! :D If my growth rate stays like this, I'll be at ankle in less than a year!

26.75" stretched, 22" curly. The curly measurement stayed the same, while the stretched measurement shows .75" increase in length.

25 inches, up from 23.75. I skipped measuring In June.

No growth here, I'm not really surprised because it's winter here and my hair seems to need a rest.

ETA: that would be about 30.5 inches still then.

I'm at 32.75/33". I've been trimming a lot lately and I'm not good about measuring how much I trim, so I'm just estimating, but I think I've stuck with my .5"/mo growth rate pretty steadily lately.

42"!
A magic number indeed.

And that puts me at classic. I've finally decided (after a couple of months of dithering - "not quite sure if I can legitimately call it") that it IS classic.

Wooooo. :)))

Another couple of inches and I'll also be able to do the fake crown braid with one long plait wrapped around my head. (Next mini-goal on the way to terminal.)

This in my first measure-in, and my current hair length is 50.75 inches (measured wet).

34 from 33,5! I'm thinking about staying at 35 for a while when I get there to trim. But then again I might just continue to grow :D

Another Australian here! My hair only grows at an average of 0.5" per month but at least it is growing. Up to 26.5". I will be buying some different vitamins tomorrow. Hopefully, I get a growth spurt in summer.

Finally at 28" (when wet)! :happydance: I was stuck in the rut of 27" for May, June and nearly half of July.

I have finally taken a measurement of my hair when dry and it looks like it's 23.5" right now (though this seems to change every day). It seems like my hair might take a LONG while to get to dry waist length.

Congratulations! Yes, I know the feeling :D My measurement was when my hair was wet and pulled straight.

I joined LHC in June and was at 19". I had a trim and as of today August 1st, Im at 20.5" :) I'd say that's pretty good!

AmandaPanda

38" - which means I grew approx. ¾"

I plan on trimming a little on the 8th or 9th

This month marks the 4th year anniversary since I cut my hip length hair to my shoulders

Whatever growth I have had I just trimmed off due to splits :( Probably about a half inch since June :(

32 3/4" - and *clears throat* I am no longer a non-trimmer... I have been dealing with slow growth/stalling all summer, and as it seems to be breakage rather than seasonal slowing down, I have just trimmed about an inch. I will do microtrims from now, until my old damage from rough handling is gone.

22.25" in July, and 23" this morning! That's the most I've ever grown in 1 month!!!:) I hope it continues!

This month I got about 2 cm of growth (0.79 inches), bringing me up to 92 cm, or 36.22 inches.

It doesn't look as long tough :rolleyes: It's a shame to think I'm getting a trim in September but oh well... It's growing good!!!

:D

Eta: Wow, I just noticed! One more inch and I'll be just 10 inches away from my goal!! YAAAYYYY!!!

I just looked at your hair album ... wow! You have come such a long way. I saw one of your photos and your hair is brought to the front & it is very long! It just doesn't look long in your back photos because you appear to have a long torso :D

Another one inch growth month! (So who's complaining?)

At this rate, I will be close to BSL by Xmas!!!

I'm up to 42 inches, meaning a whole inch of growth this month! :grin: Methinks the hair vitamins are working :disco:

24" still no growth. I wonder if my last measurment was wet or dry. This one was dry, will have to measure again on wash day.

27 and a titch, but I always round it down. So 27 it is, up an inch from last month.

27 inches in July
27.75 in August

My next trim is in September but I've been treating it well so maybe I can stretch that a little:).

Think I might have to experiment with Biotin though after reading Socks' increase in growth!

Alva
August 2nd, 2008, 06:26 AM
37.5 this time, I am going to get a tiny trim though soon :)

EvaSimone
August 2nd, 2008, 07:02 AM
I don't believe that I have had much (if any growth) this month.

Every time I measure I get between 0 inches and .25" of growth.

Oh well next month I guess... :)

Saranne772
August 2nd, 2008, 07:08 AM
Well I am up from 39" to 39.5" A decrease in 50% of growth rate!

velvetcat
August 2nd, 2008, 07:17 AM
37", a growth of .5".
I'll take it!

I had a lot of bad health this month, but still had growth...but I can't wait to get out of the 30's.

I have some Biotin, maybe time to try it again...

August 2nd, 2008, 11:51 PM
30 and 1/4":) I've passed the 30" mark again

26.5 inches as of today. I did, however, do a very small 1/4-1/2 inch self-trim 2-3 weeks ago. It didn't get all my ends, only the longest. It was more than a dusting, but didn't seem to affect length too much. Slowly creeping further...



Whoops! I have to change my siggy!

32.5 inches up 1/2 an inch from last month :)

I finally got around to measuring. I'm at 35". I was measured at 34" when I got it trimmed back in June at Enchantress but I think the difference is different people doing the measuring. I know I didn't grow an whole inch since the 3rd week of June. I wish!

Florida Mom
August 3rd, 2008, 10:00 PM
27 1/4 inches.... my typical 1/2 inch a month.

redtea
August 4th, 2008, 08:34 AM
I grew one whole inch! I went from 22 to 23 inches! :)

24", up from 23.75"...only 1/4" for July. :( I usually grow 1/2".

27.5 inches, 1 inch longer than last month! I usually grow 1/4 inch per month. Those vitamin supplements works miracles. :)

I'm at 54.5" up from 54" (post trim) last month.

Kiraela

I'm somewhere between 35.5 and 35.75 - I measured several times and it was always somewhere between the two - So I'm going to round down and call it 35.5.

Elanor
August 5th, 2008, 02:19 AM
26 inches :)

I was at 25'' sometime in May/June so at least 1'' growth in the summer so far.

rhosyn_du
August 5th, 2008, 03:18 AM
I'm at 21", which means I got a whole inch of growth this month to make up for the slow, slow growth of the last couple months. :happydance:

Pikkukala
August 5th, 2008, 07:26 AM
Didn't measure in July, but it was 33" at the start of June and now it's 34", so there's a little change there.

Lillian
August 5th, 2008, 02:26 PM
I trimmed an inch last night (trim eight this year) and so remain at 44" for the time being.

Paradise Lost
August 5th, 2008, 02:54 PM
27.4"
I was at 26.8" last month. My hair used to grow faster, so I'm a bit disappointed. It seems that reaching my first goal (waist) will take longer than I expected. It's still some growth though.

tigerlily83
August 5th, 2008, 03:01 PM
I measured in at 17.5" (not straightened) sometime last month.... but I measured last night and it came to 18". I did gently straighten this one time since I've given up on heat styling, just to see my true length. I wonder how much longer I have to go until APL? :)

LaurelSpring
August 5th, 2008, 03:09 PM
I skipped a couple of measure ins and this month found that I am at 26. :cheese: It really is growing!

August 17th, 2008, 04:53 AM

KarenLynn
August 17th, 2008, 07:32 AM
I measured 98 cm/38.6 inches on the 13th (up 2 cm/0.8 inches since mid-July), then proceeded to cut 6 cm/2.4 inches. Now I'm back to 92 cm/36.2 inches.

Wonder17
August 17th, 2008, 07:40 AM
Well, nothing big here, but it's sure nice to know that now I measure 23'' (60 cm):D
Good luck to all of u hair growers out there!
