    I realize Lush is not exactly natural, but I had read a review from someone with thin hair that raved about it, so I decided to try it.

    I had used Chagrin Valley shampoo bars years ago, and couldn’t remember why I stopped. Just did a search here, and apparently my scalp got super itchy and flaky from them. Also I was doing ACV rinses and I have since discovered that my hair doesn’t like ACV.
    Be careful with Lush shampoo bars though, because they contain a lot of sulfates, even more than in a common sulfate shampoo (Garnier blends line). Loepsie (YT channel) aka Lucy used to wash with these and suffered horrible hair loss. Her hair never recovered and she has thinner hair now than she used to.

I don't want to cut it off and lose the progress I've made :/ Just waffling really, but it's nice to know that it is possible to make it to waist+ with thin fine hair!

For a year I cut of 1cm off every 3-4 months and I managed to grow my hair from CBL to APL in a year. So in my opinion, I would start slowly cutting the damage step by step instead of holding on to it. I think it could prevent unnecessary breakage and further damage to your lengths. However, do what feels best
    Amy Bee, I started here with the bottom half of my hair having splits and damage from previous bleaching. My hair got to APL and then refused to grow for 3 years, it just stayed there. I took the advice here to start microtrimming the damage off, and my hair started to grow. Very slowly, but it at least started to gain length. All the damaged ends are completely gone now, and the microtrimming thickened my hemline. I never thought I could ever grow to waist length and I am literally there. I stopped microtrimming for the meantime and am doing S&D for a while and allowing the fairytale ends to just have their way, which I will blunt trim across in a few months, which may set me back to before WL. But I can confidently confirm that microtrimming the bad ends off really works, it worked for me! It seems counter-intuitive, but removing the splits and damage allows your hair to grow again and gain length.

    Eh, I had shoulder length around that time but if I do, I'll definitely dilute and deep condition after!

    Winter has always equaled more tangles but longer than waist has really upped the ante for prevention! I haven’t noticed an increase in tangling per se, just that it’s so much worse to get massive knots out than when it was shorter. I went back to cones once it got cold for this very reason.
    Clever! I never use my silk scarves, this is great!

    Thanks for the tip! I have an old silk scarf lying around somewhere

Now I do not know how old you are and do not believe age should really matter either but I am closing in on 68 pretty darn fast so many of my friends have done the big cut.I am holding firm on trying to grow mine out.
    Good to hear your story missmaggieeliza. Iím mid 60s and growing mine out. I agree itís best to please yourself because someone always has an opinion thatís contrary to your own. Iíve had comments about it being too long, too short, too blonde, too mousy, too grey, too fine etc etc. I only ever remember really liking my hair when it was long, natural colour and it could be worn off my face, so Iím doing it for me.

    Thanks. It definitely looks like that's what I'm going to have to do. How often did you get it cut? If I could make it to APL first I'd be ecstatic. That would be very long for me. I'm thinking I'll get into the hairdressers as soon as they reopen in a month and make a start. My ends are quite unpredictable atm.

    Hi Girlcat! Good to "see'you! I have used Lush shampoo bars but only their unscented one (don't remember the name, it was coconut based) for trips and such. It takes more manipulating of the hair for shampoo bars, both to wash and rinse well, and my hair uses that as an excuse to fall out. So I only used it for overnight trips and such, and not as a main shampoo. Regular shampoo bars don't play well with my hard water AND my hair falls out. So nope, no bars for me.

    Your hair is looking very lovely in your siggy pic!

    Rags, What shampoo do you regularly use? My hair started thinning since I moved to Arizona 11 years ago ... after living there for 6 years I moved to Texas but same thing ... It falls out and does not grow back .... I think it might be the water and shampoo combo .... I am originally from Costa Rica, where the water is soft. I have lost like half of my hair. Doctors have checked my blood and I am ok...
