    Default Any Super-Shorties Out There???

    I am returning, after a very, very long absence. Around August 2007, I had a major (and I do mean MAJOR) chop. My hair ended up about 1 inch long all over, and I have been trying to recover ever since. I am now at about 10 inches, which doesn't sound long at all (mainly because it isn't), but I am trying to get back to long. It's a slow, painful process.

    Is anyone else in the same boat? If you are, what length did you start at and how is it going for you?

    You sure do, Fluke! Your hair looks like mine, about when I first got it cut. How long do you think you'd like your hair to get? Mine used to be waist-length, though I went shorter gradually, and it was below chin-length prior to the the BIG chop. I'd like to get back to waist-length one day. That's my current goal -- but I'll aim for shoulder-length for starters. How about you?

    Wow, LawyerGirl! You are also where I started. How is it going for you? What is your length goal? What made you decide to go so short and now grow it out?

    It is fantastic to know I'm not the only one in this position and that we can support each other on this journey!!

    Pixna, my goal right now is somewhere in between BSL and waist, I think. I have had short hair most of my life, the longest my hair has been ever is probably in the APL area. I had been keeping it shoulder length but went in to get it chopped up to chin and the hairdresser totalllllly misunderstood and gave me long chin length layers in front and then shaved the back. I cried and cried, and once I had someone else even it up, I ended up with what you saw in the picture.

    I decided to grow it out because I miss feeling super girly, and I feel like long hair suits my personality better. Plus, I am impatiently waiting for my BF to propose... and when he does, I want to feel beautiful, not "funky" or "punk" or "daring" or whatever. The hard part, though... is the growing out. Ugh!

    Is it really you? Welcome back!

    I recently cut back to waist, and that seems short to me! Happy growing again.

    You're back, you're back, you're back!

    Oh my, LawyerGirl, that's quite a story -- and a sad one. But, it has a happy ending -- long hair and a proposal on the way! My cut was due to a moment of midlife insanity, combined with the influence of others who seemed to believe I was a curly girl (I'm not), and my lame-brained assumption that my hair would be curlier if it were shorter (nope, another falsity--it just cuts any curl there is right off!). I'm afraid I'll be petrified wood by the time my hair gets to where I want it to be, as I am in my midfifties. Apparently stupidity has no age barriers!!!

    Flaxen!!! You remember me -- thank you!!! I appreciate your good wishes. I can only WISH I were at waist-length now. For now, I will keep dreaming and thinking happy thoughts (which hopefully will encourage my follicles to grow!).

    I'm in the same boat Hoping for a proposal over the next year, so I wanted to give up the short hair - at least for a while!

    Going long after being short for 6 years!

    You and Tresses were the first to welcome me at Shawnee's site. I couldn't forget you!

    Fifties, schmifties, you're not stupid, and there is no reason why you can't grow to waist or even longer again, if you want to. I probably still have the picture I "grew" for you around here somewhere, too.

    You're making good strides, Serabelle!! Perhaps we can all check in with each other occasionally and see how we are progressing!

    I can't believe how long ago I joined the site, Flaxen -- isn't that incredible?!! Thanks for your kind words of support. It's been tough since the chop -- very emotional. Is Tresses still on LHC? I just hope my hair can get long again (REALLY long) before I'm sixty (I'm wishing VERY hard!). I still have the "growing" picture you made, believe it or not. I really appreciated your doing that!
