    Default Hello! Happy to be here!

    Hi everybody! So happy to have found this group!


    My hair is currently at MBL, and about 6 weeks ago I was feeling like I needed to make some decision about my hair. Get layers? Trim the ends? OrÖ see how long it can grow? Well, since Iím posting here I guess you know what I decided! The longest my hair has ever been was waist length, in my 20s. Now Iím in my 40s and Iím curious how long it can grow. Iíve made some changes to my routine, such as sleeping on a silk pillowcase, wearing a satin bonnet, brushing gently, and not brushing while my hair is wet. The next change I made was switching to sulphate-free, silicone-free shampoo and conditioner. My scalp has never been happier!


    Thank you for reading and I look forward to learning from you all and contributing where I can!

    Welcome!

    Just be patient, and do S&D whenever you see a split end.

    I was a "late bloomer" as well. Currently 50 years old, just turned 50 a couple weeks ago.

    My hair is heavily layered (cut it myself, wolf cut) but that's not for everyone, certainly would *not* recommend this for shorter lengths! Unless you want to look like an 80s rocker dude.

    Anyway: welcome!

    Welcome, I have almost the same goal in mind, to see my terminal length while I'm still relatively young and healthy.

    Welcome! It sounds like you're off to a great start with the changes you've made.
