View Full Version : 3rd anniversary

July 8th, 2012, 07:25 AM
My 3rd anniversary is tomorrow! :D
I'd like to thank you guys for all your help and support! :flower: Without LHC I'd probably still be at TBL with very demaged and thin hair. :disgust:

I reached my goal length in March which was 50". :joy: I've been maintaining since then and planning to do it till next March. Then I'll see how my ends look and I'll choose one from these options:
a, keep this length and trim all the growth every month like now (not too likely)
b, cut back to classic
c, grow to knee length and keep it
d, grow to knee length and then cut back to classic.
It mostly depends on my hemline. I want my ends to be as thick as possible.

Sooo, a before and after shot:


(Same trousers. :laugh:)

The first photo was taken in May 2009. (Unfortunately I don't have any length shots from July 2009. :() The ends were really thin and it started to taper at about shoulder length.
The second one was taken today. The line wants to show where knee length is on me. Growing 4" would take me there, I think. :confused:

Anyways, I'm pretty happy with my hair now. :)

Enjoy your beautiful hair at whatever length you desire, Loreley! It's really something else! Reminds me of Empress Elisabeth of Austria's gorgeous locks!

Oh my, your progress is beautiful! The difference in the hemline is impressive :D
What have you changed in your routine since joining?

Oh my, your progress is beautiful! The difference in the hemline is impressive :D
What have you changed in your routine since joining?

I tried a couple of things in the last 3 years so my routine changed a few times. When I joined I used sulfate shampoo and coney conditioner. Then I was CO-ing for about 9 months. After that I started using a mild sulfate free shampoo, cone free conditioner and coconut oil. That was till last autumn. That routine just stopped working so I went back to cones. This spring I tried going cone free again but my hair hated it. Now I use tons of coney stuff and a sulfate free shampoo (SLES shampoo at about every 4th wash) and my hair just looooves this routine. I still use coconut oil every now and then, though.
Before joining TLHC I didn't really trimmed my hair, that's the main reason it was so thin. And I was ripping it with those evil plastic brushes and apart from that totally neglected it.
