    Default First time growing long - another newbie here to let it grow!

    Hello there!
    I'm Sarah aka fraukakao, 26, located in Germany looking forward to grow my super thick hair super long!

    Some facts about my hair:
    - Medium single hairs but LOTS of it. Talking 4,72" circumference lots of it.
    - Had every color you can imagine on my head
    - Didn't see more than 1" of my natural hair color for the last 15 years, seems like a dark ashy blonde (level 6/7)
    - The longest it has ever been was close to BSL and totally deepfried then
    - As of today it is 17,7" long and just above my shoulders

    I do love braids (e.g. Game of Thrones or Vikings style) and that's the main reason I want to grow my hair as long as it gets. Also I'd like to see what my hair can be if I leave it untouched and let the mane grow. To achieve the best my hair can be I want to stop dyeing/bleaching/processing it and grow my bleach out, also I'm curious to see what my natural hair color actually is, as I didn't see it for 15 years

    Here are some pictures of the mess:

    Longest it has ever been on the left and on the right my starting point this years May with 14,9".

    And right now:

    The right one is like it is today, I got bored with growing out and dyed it with a wash-out blue dye (Directions Midnightblue) on the blonde base.

    I hope I can find some motivation to stay away from colors and bleach, a good care routine for my bleached lengths and of course some fellow longhairs to enjoy this adventure with me. Let's see how far this mane can get without overly use of scissors and harsh chemicals!

    Best wishes

    Hello and welcome

    I love your cobalt blue looks. I'm a retired blue hair and some days I really miss it


    I hope you enjoy growing it out!
