    Paulownia, your natural end curls are gorgeous!
    Was it not me that should be offended? Because it was my cheating
    I didn't take it that seriously. I knew you were joking. Thanks for compliment.

    Just to be safe i'm going to start this out with i'm not offended. i thought i would share how i do my photos and my measurements. for the circumstances of this thread being the monthly length photos i did decide to pick one day out of the month regardless of where i am in my wash cycle and how bouncy or not bouncy my curls are to take a picture on my natural hair. i chose the 20th since its in the middle of the month. i also take stretched length shots as well but i normally wait till a friday. i find that i use the 11th and the 22nd depending on where it falls closer to my wash. the reason why i do that is because i oiled it and used a BBB to distribute and braided it. i take it right out of two side 3 strand braids and bbb a bit and snap! i find it easiest to see my color demarcation line that way as well so i post that manipulated look both loose and stretched. i check the length and see how far the color has gone in about a month.

    now as for measuring i do it on the 1st of the month on dry hair stretched by my DH. calling milestones i do in 3 steps. i'll claim it when i reach it wet,(verified by the DH which i call step one to be official) i'll call it stretched which is when i feel it is acceptable to start popping into the next thread down and appear less in the one that i was in. i consider my hair classic stretched officially (verified by LCHers with a picture and the DH's measurements). third i'll call it unstretched in which case i respectfully leave the graduated thread! feeling that i officially in my own eyes reached the milestone.

    phew that was a lot thank you for reading this far! your the mvp!!!

    paulownia those curly ends are gorgeous!
    and tekla I see some growth for sure, also your hair looks so nice and sleek in those pics.

    Here's my March pic

    Ok it's barely the 17th but I got impatient! I feel like I may technically be at SL now which is pretty exciting.
    No trim first half 2019; No dye until 2020.

    You are so right Paulownia, thanks so much!!
    Totally organic. Growing slowly with microtrims, hoping to thicken and maintain a blunt hemline.

    Hey, so yesterday it was time for my monthly photo. I don't see much progress from February except maybe the U-cut of my hair has become straighter (side hair has become longer). I don't really know so you can make your own conclusions.

    Just for fun: the pic from right after the last trim I had: on 17th October 2018:


    19th February (so you can compare with this month's pic):


    19th March (with bun waves)


    I don't see much growth since 19th Feb... but my hair looks more the same length. It could be the slight curls at my ends, maybe making it look shorter this month. My hair is a weird thing. I wish it would grow!! But you can see it has decided to grow a bit since Oct - seems pretty slow. Also, I swear, the trim made it so much shorter. When I hit the 6 month mark of no trimming, I'm just gonna let it grow. Please grow, hair!

    Note: My hair looks so much straighter than it actually is this is what happens when a curly brushes their hair. (Sorry for long post!)
