Thank you LHC for giving me the determination to grow my hair. Its been two years tomorrow, so I thought I'd post a composite picture of my progress.

So, question from a straighty: do you even /need/ a pillow to sleep on at night with all those curls?

So beautiful! :toast:

Thank you, Ginbill, Madora, Tisiloves, and petali! I appreciate your comments.

sun-kissed, :) I actually need a pillow to keep me from squashing my curls. It looks like this.;)http://hearstmuseum.berkeley.edu/exhibitions/images/cen/culmination/asia/japan/9_9160.jpg

MiamiPineapple, thank you


Wow, that is amazing! Do you find it easier to manage now that it is longer?

Maybe, it is actually easier to manage now, at this length. I wished someone would have explained that to me 50 years ago. This is the first time in my life my hair is longer that APL.

Holy moly!!! Great progress.
Have you ever straightened it just for fun to see how long it really is ?
Although, with curls like those I would shun a flat iron for life! I am totally envious of the perfect ringlets.
Is your color all natural too? the dimension is crazy pretty.

This is SO encouraging. You have gorgeous long curls and it didn't take 10 years like everybody threatens. Your pictures make me so happy!

I'm the same length as your 2010 picture, so maybe I only have to wait 2 more years. Sigh. A girl can dream.

Wonderful progress and gorgeous hair!

Thanks akilina, My hair is near BCL straightened, although I never flat iron. I just can't get used to the lack of volume, let alone the damage it would probably cause.



What a gorgeous head of curls! You're a real life fair haired princess Merida!

Tota, thanks so much. Merida is a gorgeous red-head and I am a fast-fading blonde that is mostly a grey color. BUT I am of Scottish descent, so I am very flattered.



That is some amazing growth, keep it up. :) Just curious... If you stretch out your hair, how far does it reach?

Thanks, Dancing Queen. I am very near BCL when I stretch to measure. Right now I am 33.5"


wow your hair is awesome!!!!!! :D
can you give more details on how you sleep?

Sookie, thanks! Actually I pineapple my hair in a scrunchy at the top of my head. It is long enough that I still end up lying on the length most of the time. I have to CO wash every other day or every third day to keep my curls from turning into a frizzy, ratty, nest.

That is an amazing amount of growth --especially for a curly! Such gorgeous hair!!

My hair is so short and the curls are all wonky and not so well formed yet because there isn't enough length. Your photos have given me so much inspiration, thank you!

Congrats and Happy Anniversary, kitschy!

Beautiful.....just beautiful. Do you wear your hair down much?

kitschy
August 2nd, 2012, 03:27 PM
Neecola, your hair is not wonky it is beautiful!

Thank you longhairedleah.

sakuraemily we signed up the same day?...., and I checked out your anniversary thread. Your hair is so shiny and healthy! I'm jealous.

You are so kind Curly Crone, and yes, I wear my hair down probably 90% of the time. If I put it up, it is usually in a cinnabun that I tie upon itself. (....a benefit of texture :afro:, my knot will stay all day)
