    Default Long time reader, first time writer

    Hello there!

    I'm a biracial (black/white) woman from the US Midwest. I'm active in my local LGBT community, and I love makeup and computers.

    I've been growing my hair out since about 2014 when I cut off my hip-length dreadlocks.
    My 3c hair is APL when dry/curled and BSL/WL when straightened or wet.

    I looked through the LHC forums when I started trying to care for my hair in 2014, and I've referred to the forums intermittently ever since.
    I decided against registering at the time because the forums didn't have a significantly visible natural hair contingent at the time.
    When I visited to find an at-home haircutting guide for one of my long-haired friends, I checked the curly chat for the first time in awhile and noticed the activity. After that, I thought about how my growth feels like it's plateaued for the past few weeks, and how bored I am with the same handful of end-protecting braids and styles - so I took the plunge and registered.

    Looking forward to learning new ways to care for my hair and befriending people with similar interests.

    Hello and welcome! I used to live in America, and it sounds like you have fun hobbies and interests!

    Hip length dreadlocks are a definite look. I was seeing a girl with that same hairstyle but unfortunately it didn't work out

    I have nearly pin straight hair that couldn't hold a wave for if it tried, but there is a great blog I read on hair care tips. She focuses it around curly hair but I have found many a gem there.

    But of course, I've found many more here which is why we are all members! Enjoy the forums, wealth of knowledge, and good luck on your hair journey!
    Keep going, keep growing

    Welcome! A good friend is biracial black/white as well. Her hair is so beautiful and epic with wild curls.

    How long do you plan to grow?
