    How does your current length goal compare to your initial length goal? How much goal creep has occurred?

    Had classic length as a young teen (10/11) and so wanted to get back to that length, because I loved it so much at the time. And to me the longer, the easier, with a cut-off point for comfort at classic length. So always that goal; never changed!

    Originally wanted hip, now want tailbone. Might want it longer once I get there idk, but for right now I donít see myself going longer than tbl.

    When I joined, I had no idea. So I used terminal.
    Then as I got goals, it was waist, tailbone, classic, knee, calf.
    I got to knee, had so much damage I decided to have someone else trim and even it up...and lost almost a foot.

    So I’m back at classic...from “lower waist.” And while I’ll celebrate mid thigh/fingertip (this is an inch difference), I’m aiming for knee again.

    I believe back when I started growing a decade ago from BSL that I just wanted to grow as long as possible. I didn't have high expectations for myself but that was my plan. By the time I joined LHC, I had more "practical" goals at specific body markers, and then extended those several times as I hit each milestone. So, in my mind, my goals have changed a lot, but actually I've stayed pretty true to my initial motivation.

    Goal creep is real for me! I started off wanting waist-length hair and now I'm aiming for classic. Might go longer if I find classic manageable.

    Very long hair isn't common here, and I get the feeling that both my mum and my future MIL would prefer if I had it shorter. I do so wish they wouldn't keep bringing it up, but as long as I can keep it looking kempt, I'll keep growing!

    when I first joined I wanted hip length for a nano second then I realised it was much shorter than I thought, then went right to midthigh, then knee, then floor after seeing the amazing heads of hair in the floor length topics floor is my ultimate goal but I'm setting smaller goals first, but my vote of much longer is still valid

    Joining LHC this January seeking management hints for long hair before resorting to shears, I had no future length goals in mind as my hair was already "long" for me. In fact at that time not even knowing what "classic" was, a very common goal, I missed it, the goal that is. From reading this site, knee, apparently achievable by year's end, now looms as a definite length goal for me, and measurements indicate my trip may end near ankle in a few more which I'm now curious to see for myself.

    ETA So I pick 1-3 benchmarks longer than initia

    When I started growing my hair on purpose, 2 and half years ago, I wanted what we call hip length. I changed to classic some months before rejoining LHC in January 2020.
    Next Goal: TBL. Final Goal: CL+.
