    Thank you <3 I think it'll be another 2-3 inches before it's comfortable, and stays for me. Hopefully it won't be too much longer for you!

    Measuring unstretched because flexibility is dumb.

    This is how I usually wear mine.

    In other news, I managed a super uncomfortable lazy wrap bun. it fell out almost immediately, and was awfully tight to do but it was my first stick bun since cutting my hair! I hope this means I will be able to bun soonish. I miss buns.
    That certainly does sound like you will be bunning soonish!

    I like a good stick or fork bun...for me they are so much more comfortable than elastics. And I feel being able to use them is a big milestone.

    One thing I'm trying to get use to at this length is the split between in front and behind my shoulders when my hair is down. I like to have hair in both positions. It's time to choose sides- because now my hair at the back is long enough to stay put and not slide in front of my shoulders.

    Helloooooo, I'm here, I'm here!!!


    Grown from shaved, 17 months, no trimming.

    I'm at APL sooner than I thought and I'm soooo excited to be apart of this thread now. I have to measure what MBL will be for me, I'll come back and edit this post!

    MBL for me is about 29 inches. I'm around 21 now ♡

    I noticed this as well on myself. I tend to pull all my hair over my left shoulder but look forward to it all staying behind my shoulders soon!

    I'm still here. Feeling mighty defeated with my lack of progress. This time of year I spend half my time in a town near water plus my usual home gets more humid so my hair is toast no matter what. It gets wavy and frizzy and points every way but down... so it looks months shorter.

    I treated myself to a blow dry about 2.5 weeks ago and it felt long but still with my flippy ends it didn't look like I've made much progress. October 2020 was my last real cut. I did a minor self trim a few months ago. Waahhhh.

    These pics were about 10 years ago... Trying again from similar to that short pic.

    Add: I'm not crazy. I just measured and I'm still 20" which is where I was 5 months ago.
