    Default Hello!

    Hi everyone,

    I am a longtime lurker of this board and a few others and I've decided to finally join! For the last 15 or so years I've gone thru cycles of growing out my hair, a few different cuts, horrible bleach mishaps, and everything else that one can do to their hair. I've had bobs, undercuts, even a buzz cut before. The longest my hair has been is about midback length before I get the urge to color it or end up chopping it off.

    Most recently, I had the right side of my head shaved. I have been growing it out since about early July and those hairs are measuring about 2.75" while the rest of my hair (in individual sections) measures from 10.5" to about 13". My hair is currently a little past armpit length and I plan on slowly trimming to allow my shorter side to catch up. In the past I would just bigchop and grow it all together, but it's so much harder to grow that way. Luckily, it's pretty easy to hide the shorter hair on the side by combing my hair over it or using a headband when I wear it up. Also, I have a few layers and this will give me a chance to also grow those layers out so i'm happy about that.

    My goal is to wear my hair in protective styles as much as possible, trim every four to six months, and just be patient I guess. I am natural type 3c/4a and I straighten my hair for trimming so I don't want to do it more often than that. My ultimate goal for my hair is to see just how long it can grow. I've done all of the short haircuts and fun colors, so this should be a fun(albeit lengthy) challenge! Can't wait to get to know you all, as I plan to spend a lot of time here haha.

    p.s. I will post pictures once I am able to get some taken.

    That is so weird. I thought I'd already welcomed you to the forum. Apparently not?

    But... welcome!

    Welcome, fellow recovering impulse-haircut addict!
    I also decided to grow long because it's the one thing I haven't tried yet.
    I'm excited to see those curls!

    Welcome! Story. Of. My. Life. I used to sit hair model for trend shows, so for some years, I feel like I've been every (natural) hair colour, with weird disconnections and shapes. ..but it's so nice with change, and to be styled in new ways.. Good luck to us both!
