    Is dry shampoo an option?

    Same for me since I've gotten more virgin roots. I used to be able to go 72 hours between washes quite frequently, but 48 hours is the new 72 hours, and at 24 hours, I already look visibly oily but not to the degree where I'd wash it yet.

    I'm starting to wonder if I might try growing to terminal. In some ways having knee length hair is a pain, but I love it. I have only a bit of natural taper at this length, and I still have a few inches of thinned ends and layers to cut/grow out. My great grandmother had my same colour hair and texture and her hair was past floor length and still very thick. For now I'm focusing on getting rid of those old layers since I'm so close, but after that I'm not sure. When I first joined this forum, I wanted to maintain at TBL and then maybe grow to classic and not much further. Now I'm at knee, so who knows.
    TBL 37.5" ~ Classic 42" ~ Thigh 48" ~ Knee 52"

    You have come such a long way since joining LHC, Decoy, and it would be great to see your hair growing longer, so I encourage you to go for terminal. When you have the right genes, which you apparently have with a great grandmother with floor length hair, then it's a challenge to explore how far your hair can reach, at least once in your life! Your hair is quite similar to Saige and Maborosi, who are also growing to undiscovered lengths…
    Do you often wear your hair in a braid? I don't remember having seen a braid picture of your hair.

    Do you apply the first C to wet or dry hair?

    Over the past month I've really started noticing my hair growth in the shower. I can see my hair without tilting my head, and I can feel it sitting properly in-between my shoulder-blades. It's exciting to feel like it's finally getting somewhere!
    16 months bleach-free

    I really messed up my injured arm yesterday, I had to mount my elbow up against a cabinet to do my updo today. But I managed to do it, yeehaw. I'm still happy how my flowerbed looks all tidyed up (while busting my arm yesterday).

    Wet, but with excess water squeezed out. It took some experimenting to get the right balance so I didn't end up with conditioner dripping or running down my face
    Knee by 'Nineteen - hooray! Tiny trim and now onto Calf!
    Picky scalp but easygoing hair - phew

    I'll have to give that a try before my next wash. My hair is dry and could probably use some extra moisture from leaving conditioner on for an extended period of time.
