    Sigh. Just got a fresh trim today to blend in all the growing in bits on my crown. More trimmed than I wanted from the length, as I kind of expected going to a hairdresser for the first time in at least 2 years. But I'm not planning on trimming my hair til next year anyway. A little past apl (the dreaded length that takes forever to get through...) Time to baby the heck out of my hair.

    I swear it's so true! APL somehow manages to be the hardest to keep healthy, I swear hip length and beyond is easier. Must be because it gets greaser faster, maybe its harder to put up safely and keep the ends covered.. just took me a long time to get past that length as well. Once you're past waist though, it seems to get easier to carry on!

    Yes! I have not trimmed since June 2022 when my hair was nape length (chin length), so I'm in!

    I'm pulling out of no trims for now, though I might do the second half

    I really can't decide if want to do this or not.. my hair is super fine and straight midback length, and hasn't been trimmed in about a year. There are definitely split ends and the tangles are starting to get more noticable but I don't think it looks unhealthy or too terribly wispy at the ends. I know people with thicker hair probably judge me but I really want to make it past waist by next winter!

    Hi, I’m not sure if it’s appropriate to do an occasional check in here, please let me know if it’s not, I’m new here )

    It’s been almost 4 weeks since my last root bleach and about 3.5 since my last trim. I’m not struggling with wanting to cut, it hasn’t been that long but I have been stopping myself from trying to tone my hair. As anyone who has gone light blonde and tried to keep it a light ashy/ silvery color knows the tone does not hold for long. Mine is pretty much gone 3.5 weeks out. It’s a nice bright sunny blonde and doesn’t look bad but I’m bummed it didn’t stay icy for long. I only wash my hair once a week since it’s curly so I was hoping for a bit more longevity. Bummer.

    The issue with me toning it is 1-more damage because even a semi permanent toner uses a low volume developer and 2. More damage because I don’t like the first tone half the time and almost immediately do it again. Haha. So, yes, it’s safer to wait until I do my roots at 8 or so weeks out and tone it one time then.

    My other issue is my hair is just recovering from my keto diet experiment last fall. I did lose a stubborn 20lbs over two months but it caused my hair growth to almost complete stop and I developed a bald spot … scary! I’ve been afraid to calorie restrict since then and stopped keto. The bald spot has slowly filled back in and my hair growth rate has improved but I’m still not where I used to be. I feel like I will be lucky to get half an inch this month which is again an improvement but I used to get almost an inch a month. Bummer.

    MegaHAVOC, I can say as consolation that when I started my strict keto/carnivore diet and lost 10 kg over 2 months, I experienced heavy shedding (telogen effluvium), but it’s completely normal after a major lifestyle change and especially weight loss, and my hair went back to normal as my body adjusted. Of course, I don’t recommend caloric restriction.

    Oh that’s good to know! I kinda thought that was what was going on but was still worried as I had never had the crazy hair loss happen like that from weight loss. After pregnancy, yes, unfortunately, haha. I wasn’t trying to calorie restrict so much on keto but being on the diet just caused me to eat less - sometimes way less than I should have been eating. It was my fault but I kinda got tired of eating the same foods all the time and just would not eat. Again my fault as I’m not a great cook/ don’t enjoy cooking and made the same meals too often. Lol

    I'm already dropping out, I think my ends are too damaged to go the entire year without a trim
