    Thats a lot of progress for just 6 months! I love the color.

    You have had an amazing amount of growth, Lainey, congratulations! I really like your salt & pepper color, not to mention the nicest little hair flip, ever. I am so happy for you, your progress is inspiring.

    Loved the video, she is quite the 73 year old!

    I can explain to the gal in the video why more people aren't out there in inline skates outdoors. The first time I tried them one of the wheels picked up a pebble causing an immediate stop to the forward momentum of the skate -- but not the forward momentum of my body. The helmet hit so hard it cracked. Now, maybe upgrades since those days prevent that sort of rock accident, but I'm not inclined to find out.

    I did like her hair and attitude, though: "When I get old...."

    Thanks for the encouragement bokeh and luluj. Much appreciated. I’ve got a way to go to catch you both!

    That sounds like a scary episode Cg. Glad you escaped in one piece. I can’t see myself skating. A 20 minute jog is my preferred exercise. I do love her spirit though and the fact she’s sporting lovely long natural hair.

    I'm sticking with Yoga and Tai Chi myself. Much safer!

    Good for you jogging! My feet and knees couldn't take that anymore but as long as I can still work in the garden I'm happy.

    Yes bokeh, I feel the same as you, the privilege of having even a small garden like mine, is a blessing. They are such a refuge. I’ve not too much expertise but I have plenty of enthusiasm and have spent plenty of time in it since retiring.

    You will get there, Lainey, no doubt about it. Remember, we were where you are now, at one time.

    Thanks luluj. I think what’s kept me going this time is seeing that it is actually possible, because there’s so many on here who’ve grown from pixies. I haven’t trimmed for 6 months and I’m kind of minded to keep going for a little while yet and then just trim the hemline. I saw that yours has now reached over 20 inches-congratulations. How are you mostly wearing it these days?

    Thank-you, yes, twenty-one inches! It has been quite some time since my hair has been this long, it's a nice little milestone, indeed.

    You have the determination in you, it's obvious. I have every confidence that you will make it another six months, and even if you do freshen the hemline during that time, you will gain quite a bit of length. It's exciting!

    I was fortunate enough to receive six beautiful, lush velvet scrunchies for Christmas. They cause zero hair damage and the colors are rich and lovely. So needless to say, I have worn them in my hair almost constantly. Usually I do a low, loose ponytail which is comfy. My face framing layers are now long enough to not slip out and get in my face...finally.

    Are you able to put your hair up?
