    Default No trimming club!

    Calling all non-trimmers, old and new! If you're fed up with losing length to trims or cuts, join the club! Individual split ends snipping (search & destroy) doesn't count

    Post here how long you've not been trimming, and/or how long you want to abstain from it. What goals do you want to reach before you grab the scissors? Do you want to maintain or develop fairy tale ends? Have you joined the old club and then fell off the wagon during the 'dark ages' of LHC?


    I haven't trimmed my hair since I found the (old) LHC and decided to grow my hair again. That's just over 2.5 years. I started from a layered, shoulder length cut, which gave me 'artificial' fairy tale ends as my hair grew to waist. My goal is tailbone, and I think I will not trim until then. I'm quite happy with the look and health of my hair, and I do (occasionally) S&D.

    The club welcomes members old and new!

    Me me me! "Old" member here. My last dusting was in December 06. Before that, I couldn't even tell you when my last real cut was. I just reached TB and still see no need to trim. I have fairytale ends and luv em. I am growing to terminal anyway, so I just don't see a need for trimming.

    I haven't trimmed in a year, but today I'm going to have my mom cut about 1/2 inch off because it's quite split.....I don't worry too much about tiny cuts like that cause my hair grows a full inch-inch and a half each month....however after today I plan not to cut again and protect my ends against splits better so that I can hurry and get to my waist!

    What do you do to get your hair to grow that fast?

    I joined this club just before LHC went down. My last trim was at the end of December and I'm still on the wagon I am a non-trimmer at heart so it wasn't difficult even with LHC being down. However, I have been a trimmer for a couple of years before I found LHC because I was so tired of having tiny brooms on the ends of my hairs... During this time I trimmed more than my hair grew and went from tailbone to waist. My hair felt awfully short and I still had a lot of splits above my hemline. But after learning about S&D-ing and gentler haircare I have now less splits than ever before since my hair grew long No need to trim more then! I'm perfectly fine with S&D when needed only.

    My first goal is to get back to TBL, and after that I'm going for terminal length (wherever that is). I'm definitely going to develop fairy tale ends sooner or later. I won't reach terminal without them, you know

    Hi Stagecoach, I can fully sympathize! It must be we are hair twins, although yours is so much more long and lovely! I do S&D and always find splits, even in my shortest hairs. I try to practice good hair care, but it's split-city here!! It's been around fourteen months since my last real trim, and I'm holding out, if I can stand it!!!

    I cut my hair to chin length right after I got married in June of 2006. Got it cut again to even it out (it was a funky cut that was shorter in back than in front) right before I started my new job in late July of 2007. Then got it cut again in early may of this year to layer it around my face more. It's got a nice "shape" to it now, so I don't plan to trim at all until I hit at least BSL, and may not even trim then depending how it's looking. I'd like to get my layers evened out a bit eventually and perhaps get some long "bangs" cut so you can see my face better, but all of that's debatable. No plans for fairytale ends--I like blunt ends a lot better on my own hair (though fairytale looks lovely on some ladies).

    So yeah, count me in.
