    Default TEN (?!) years of LHC

    Ten years ago yesterday I joined the LHC! It's so wild to me that I've been in the community for so long. I found the forum looking for hairstyle ideas because my hair was near waist and a ponytail wasn't cutting it, and I couldn't do ANYTHING else. I've learned so much here and I've really enjoyed everyone's company and support as well. I've been more and less active over different periods but I always lurk! I've grown a lot, and so has my hair.

    My first LHC pic (sorry for the bare back):


    I got to near-tailbone, which was my goal:


    Before I got frustrated and cut back to above APL. Then after about a year I missed my hair and started growing again:


    I wanted to reach classic, and I did!


    ...But I contracted LHCitis and here I am today. This is not a flattering picture of my ends but it's real and I'm okay with it.


    Now I am making the final push to knee this year! I'm not trimming until I get there, which I expect will happen early fall. Then I might cut back a few inches to try for a better hemline. Or maybe not, because LHC-itis is REAL -- I am living proof. I never thought I could get anywhere close to knee but here I am. I would offer a Q&A like some have on their anniversary posts, but my hair is not that remarkable so I'll just say -- thanks to everyone who makes up the LHC, it's a really special place on the internet and I appreciate you so much!

    Wow! Congratulations! What a milestone

    Your hair is gorgeous, and definitely an inspiration (along with your fantastic blog!). Good luck with getting to knee this year (you're so close!!) I hope you keep lurking for many years to come

    Congratulations Zesty. Having been bitten by this bug too, I now know how it feels pushing knee and it feels great! Thanks to people like YOU for providing the inspiration which makes this refuge from the shorthairs possible!

    Happy anniversary!
    It's been fun watching your progress, and I'll echo what Lapushka said: I wish you were here more often!
    Hair is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.
