    So, for personal reference, do you ever trim? microtrim? If so, how often and what is your technique. I was trying so hard to not trim, but due to all the tangly hemline and hair shedding during detangling (3b fine hair) I gave in and trimmed a little more than an inch and this did help considerably with the hairshedding/breaking during detangling, but it was sad that I had to trim, or risk breaking alot more hairs. Thoughts?? thank you for sharing your hair trimming---if you ever do this/hair care routine!

    I plan to take my long silver to the grave
    I worked too hard to grow this out ( the longest I have ever been in my 64 years), and probably wouldn't have enough time to do it a again LOL
    GG!! I know exactly how you feel!! I told my hubby the same thing.

    Oh I know those fears. My Mom lost almost all her hair but, used Rogaine and it grew back all curly! But, she also did the perm/ strawberry blonde dye for almost all her life. More reasons to just let those natural silver strands just glisten and grow!

    I'll definitely keep it! I've put too much time and energy to not

    I have this fear too! The idea of that scares me so much! Because the hair can get matted from surgery and I wouldn't want anyone trying to brush/cut it. Eek!!!

    Haha, I suspected I'd be in the minority here ah well. I dunno, I guess I just sorta miss the properties of shorter hair sometimes, but I also want to experience the as yet unknown properties of super long hair (by "normal" standards that is) its almost like a project to me.

    I'm still at least 2 years from my goal of virgin TBL, so no chop is happening any time soon, just speculating, but I think it's likely I will want a change at some point later in my life.

    My goal was waist when I joined LHC, I'm now at BCL on the way to tailbone and then classic, so no I won't be cutting because every time I reach a goal I change it for a longer one
    Tailbone to Classic!
