    Default Non-Trimmers Measure-In

    - The thread for LHCers without/that hate/that can't find scissors^^ you pick..
    I felt like something was missing from the Polls and Projects-forum.. so I'm restarting the trimmers/non-trimmers threads, originally posted by Spidermom..

    Yay! I really missed these threads! May I suggest that those who can edit their posts go back to their original post to add new measurements. I think that was done in the old threads to make it easier to follow each person's growth progress.

    I'm a non-trimmer, going for terminal. My last trim was on December 23, 2007. I only do S&D.

    My measurements:
    January 1st: 31" waistlength
    February 1st: 31.75" (+0.75")
    March 1st: 32.25" (+0.5")
    April 1st: 32.75" (+0.5")
    May 1st: 33.25" (+0.5")
    June 1st: 33.5" (+0.25")
    July 1st: 33.75" (+0.25")
    July 31st: 33.75" (no gained length)

    As my lately slow growth and stalling seems to be caused by breakage, I will have to start trimming until my old damage is gone. As my final goal still is terminal length, I will one day go back to non-trimming, though.

    Hurray! I was wondering if this thread would come back. I'm a non-trimmer for life and so I am going for terminal. I don't cut my hair for reasons of faith.

    My measurements so far:

    October 2007 28"
    November 2007 29"
    December 2007 30"
    January 2008 31"
    February 2008 32"
    March 2008 33"
    April 2008 33.75"
    May 2008 34.25"

    Trimmed quite a bit in June 2008. No longer a non-trimmer. *bows out of the thread quietly*

    I hope its ok, if I post here.
    I would like to start measuring regularly to keep me motivated.



    April: 55 cm (21.5")
    May: 58 cm (22.8")
    June: 59 cm (23.2")
    July: 59 cm (23.2") I got a little scissor happy when I cut in my bangs and trimmed maybe 2 cm off my length. It seems like I trimmed off all my new growth. It was stupid and I won't do it again.
    August: 61 cm (24'')

    I will switch over to the trimmers tread.

    I am a non-trimmer, but i measure yearly. Last year (2007) i got 7.5 inches.

    I never measure monthly i just find it obsessive

    I usually just assume ill get 6 inches that way i wont be dissapointed but suprised.

    The only purpose i see in measuring hair is a yearly goal tactic other than that it seems pointless and obsessive.

    Default Non trimmer

    I'm a non-trimmer simply because I KNOW I'd mess it up!!!! My last salon trim was a year ago. As for length...I haven't measured lately....I guess I should!

    Non-trimmer out of laziness and fear of people with scissors. I love to see terminal but am taking it one landmark at a time. My most recent measurements:

    Feb 34.5"

    March 35.25"

    April 35.75"

    46.5" ===== about 6" till knee
    1c/2a/b - M(mix of all 3 but mostly medium) - iii (4")

    I trimmed in Mid February, but I am now a non trimmer, because I am not trimming for at least a year now.

    Well I'm gonna give a short hairtrim history.

    In November 2005 I had 1" trimmed.
    In early June 2006 I had 2" taken off.
    In late June 2007 I had 1" taken off.
    This June I plan to get at least a short trim.

    Right now my hair is at 'almost' 49". Last June, it was 46" AFTER my trim, so in these past 10 months I've only grown 3". My hair seems to grow faster if I trim just a tad off every 3-4 months or so.

    2008
    April 3 @ 48.75"
    May 3 @ 50" 1.25 growth spurt!
    June 3 @ 50"
    July 3 @ 51" 1" of growth!
