    Hello everyone!

    I am hoping this is going to be the beginning of a journey for me. My hair has been stuck at around shoulder length or shorter for 8 years now. Mostly because every time anything bad happens my answer is to dye or cut my hair. It has been bleached countless times, and dyed every colour imaginable. Washed and heat styled every single day. And I was always fine with the length because I've been told for years my hair is too thin to be too long, and it would be weird.

    Then one day last September I discovered the curly girl method and suddenly my hair looked okay without heat and I could go longer without washing. It was actually shiny, which it never had been before, and it started to grow. So in November I got a haircut (it was very much needed) and I stopped bleaching my hair, apart from getting someone to blend it slightly so the line would be less harsh. And when the lockdown stress came along, I resisted the urge to do something drastic, and I just gave myself a trim.

    And now I'm here, because my hair is the longest it has been in years (not by much but still) and I don't look awful with hair this length! I want to grow it! Been lurking here for a while and there are plenty of people with longer here that isn't super thick, and that is so inspiring to me.

    So this is the hair I am starting with!
