    Oh can I join, even though i am a flys nose away from the top of BSL, I was at BSL and went and trimmed, but I should officially be top by end of September and have another 3" (with old granny bra on!) to the bottom or 2" (with my normal one on!) and 6" until waist.

    I am hoping to get to waist by august 09, then next and final stop is classic for me, but you never know!!!

    thanks for this thread! i was just wanting to seek out new hairstyles for my new length...

    i'm at about 30" which for me--curse the long torso!--is about 6" from waist. sigh. i'm deep into mid-back though, which means i can make some cool hairstyles, if only i could think of some.

    anybody have any really fancy ones? i have a big work event coming up in the next few weeks...
    i wish i had used olaplex BEFORE i bleached. sigh.

    I would like to join. I am not quite sure how long my hair is. It is at least bra-strap length, I would say. I am still waiting for my hair to recover from some recent damage. After that I shall better know how close I am to waist-length. I am one of those persons wearing my hair up for a year, to distract myself from the length I do not have.

    Still here. If I pull my hair out straight it shows growth, but if I leave it alone it spirals into tight coils at the bottom and looks like it has for the past four or five months, hovering right at BSL.

    Some people consider Bsl when the hair touches the top of your bra strap and other like me consider it Bsl when it reaches the bottom of the strap..HTH

    This is such a familiar journey for me, i have a habit of growing to waist then chopping back to bra strap. This time though i wasn't actually wearing a bra so it got cut to just above bra strap, my length before was hiplength, but fairytale ends with serious thinning. If i don't trim i normally take a year to get to waist, but given i'm a bit above it....or maybe i'm at it now.....plus i intend to trim while i grow i'm going to allow a year and a half to be really generous.
    Plus now i'm not really obsessing about length anymore.....i used to loads, but i can really see the wisdom in Harpgal's advice on enjoying the journey now. I'm focusing on thickening up, and enjoying the oilings, massages, treatments and just connecting with my hair as a part of me and not cursing it for what goals i've not reached yet. My first length goal is waistlength, then after that, i'll see how it looks on the way to hiplength.....if it looks nice there then i'll just keep up the trims and see what happens.

    I have to say, i've noticed alot of lovely hair in this thread.....some of you may be wishing your hair was longer.....but as an observer i think you can't see just how beautiful it looks already

    What makes it even worse for me is that it will be likely years before I've grown out all of the old highlighted ends! *mournful face*

    I noticed that when my hair was BSL I was able to do more styles with my hair, it kept body & curl a bit better, but had to be washed more often. . .

    My hair seems to be stuck at waist, but I guess that's ok.
    You grow girl!
