    Talking Hello--finally hoping to get active after lurking for a while!

    Hello hello!
    I have been poking around for a few years without making an account, and then once I did make one I didn't actually do anything with it, but now I am! I just did my first ever picture measuring my hair from behind--for years I've been monitoring my growth by looking at it flipped over my shoulders so I could see it in the mirror.

    I'm a 1b/c/iii about half way to tail bone length! Goal is as long as I can get it and keep it healthy.

    I also veil/wrap my hair in public, so I get to keep all my beautiful locks to myself muahahaha.

    Howdy, nice to meet you! I also cover my head out of the house. We have a headcovering/headscarf thread on here somewhere. . .

    Yes!! I've browsed it a couple times. I've only been wearing a scarf/covering for about 7 months, but I've noticed decreased damage (probably because I'm not playing/pulling on the edges of it)... Also some hairs that I thought would never grow have gotten substantially longer, so I'm really happy with that.

    Awesome that you have noticed such a difference with headwrapping! Best of luck on the way to tailbone!

    Kia ora, mochichichi (yay a fellow lurker!) Good luck with your goals! Lovely to hear the health is just as important to you as the length <3 Thank you for sharing that you wrap/veil in public - this is very new to me and something I intend to explore righto! I'm going to try and locate that thread shelomit kindly mentioned

    Thanks!! I'm really happy that the wrapping has decreased my damage; when I started I was really worried about the friction of the cotton on my hair and also that the velvet band to keep things in place would wreak havoc on my baby hairs and cause my hairline to recede. I still worry about those things, but so far so good.

    Much love to my fellow lurkers!!
