    I feel I'm perfecting the french braid. yesterday me and my husband visited a friend and I wore my perfect french braid. today it's fuzzy but it's still mainly straight and somewhat neat

    I was looking at the long hair hashtag on instagram the other day and realised that even classic length isn't long enough for me anymore mid thigh length seems so wonderfully perfect and proportionate for some reason. That's what LHCitis does to people! I wonder at what point I would start calling knee length not long enough

    Most definitely!

    Yuuup! I mean, I do feel like I might be slowly creeping towards 'long enough' for practical purposes and hemline-wise, but recently I've been noticing my hair in the mirror occasionally when rebunning or something, and it seems to look barely mid-thigh, not far below classic, and it just really messes with my head. It sort of feels long when wrapping a zillion times round for buns (thanks thinness!) and in my mind I can now accept that I can call it knee-length outside of LHC, but I dunno. Some days I get moments of 'yay I can't believe I actually reached it!' and other days it's sort of 'oh come on, how is it not longer already?!'
    If knee had been my firm and final goal I think it would be different. But wanting solid calf length now, coupled with a mild case of imposter syndrome, conspires to make it 'still not long enough yet'

    [/End rant]. Sorry, been a stressful week and my scalp is doing its crazy-paving desert thing again and those posts just triggered the outburst that was evidently laying simmering just below the surface!

    sad thought: just when I started to get involved into indian herbs I went back to my local indian store and they didn't have any aritha powder left, the guy from the store said they won't be bringing more since the product didn't sell I was so excited to try it out

    I have realized that my hair does seem to be growing. When I trimmed it myself I got part of the back shorter than the rest. So when I measured I was sometimes measuring to the short part and sometimes the longer part. Now I seem to be more consistent with my measurements and I can see that it has grown! I really was thinking I had reached terminal. So tailbone may be possible by the New year.

    I forgot how long it takes from ordering some hairtoys until they ship it. I'm way to unpainted sometimes. It's just the last time I bought a few was 2017. And I can't wait to try them in my hair.

    same here: my hair starts a normal taper at apl then of course the bigger taper to the ends. but the difference between normal taper and very tapered ends because of haircut abd breakage is not that visible anymore

    On Day 5 hair, which would just be a frizzy mess if I left it, so I've brushed out my curls for work. I'll be washing tonight. My hair feels so fluffy and smooth and long brushed out
