    I am so frustrated/impatient with my hair ever since I reached BSL! I'm having some kind of Hair Dysmorphia Disorder -- it just seems so short to me, even though it's the longest it's ever been. It feels like waist is so far away, and in my mind I'm a true longhair, but no one else can see it.

    Wonder why this particular milestone feels so frustrating???

    Tomorrow I'll post with more constructive and interesting things; tonight I just wanted to whine!
    Now see I still have the dysmorphia disorder, but I finally stopped obessing over length..lol

    I was at BSL around April/May and now I'm at 28 inches with two more to go.

    I understand the dysmorphia lol, mine still seems short to me too!

    Yay I can join! I cut from *just* WL (pulled straight) to just past APL in June, but my summer growth spurt is making up for it!

    I'm a bit past BSL with pulled straight hair.. just barely there with dry curly/wavy hair (but only because the hair growing from the back of my neck is almost straight!).

    I have 3-4" to go until I am at waist.. probably 6 or 7 until I am at waist with curls. So I should be there in a year, perhaps a little more with trims.

    I am trying to resist the temptation to trim more than I need to. The condition of my hair is crap, but I want to reach a real milestone and maintain there before I cut off the majority of the damage..

    I'm just scraping past the bottom of my bra strap. I was midway to waist the beginning of this month, but after some serious clarifying and ceasing all use of cones, I uncovered an immense amount of splits going up my layers that no S&D mission could get rid of. So, I sucked it up and cut back to almost all one length. Now, with a healthier hemline I hope to start growing better. Maybe this time next year I can say...is this waist?

    Also...I don't even bother measuring anymore... I get too many measurements that vary too much

    I don't really measure anymore either. My hair in it's natural air-dried state is finally actually longer than the bottom of my bra strap. Once it hit the bra straightened, I relaxed a bit on the measuring.

    For that thread that asked about your particular measurements at each milestone, I measured. I'm at 29.5" now and waist will be 31.5", so hopefully by the end of the year I'll finally be at my "goal". Of course, after being here at LHC for so long I've changed my plans and now want to see how long it can get before I go crazy and do a real "chop" to get an even hemline straight across with no layers. At that point I'll probably again try to see how long it will grow.

    Benign neglect is a really liberating stage!!!!!

    This is a great thread! Happy encouragement all.

    Oh, I refuse to count my growing-out bangs as a "layer," cause then I'd just get too depressed....

    So NOT counting my jaw-length bangs, I also have layers just past APL and then the bulk of my hair is about an inch past BSL. I've got some crazy taper going on. I think this is the cause of my HDD, perhaps -- if it were all one length with a straight hemline, maybe I'd think it looked "long."
