Thread: Trimmers Measure-In

  1. #21

    Default

    I have been measuring one dry lock of hair at my forehead (I have layers and each hair on my head is approximately the same length right now). I don't have a tape measure but when it is dry and I pull it straight, it is the length of my comb plus the width of one finger, with a few sparse hairs sticking out further than that. And my hair sits in the nook of my collarbone if I pull it around to the front. ah, measuring without a tape measure! I will report back in a month and see if I have any progress.

    I trimmed two weekends ago, still trying to get rid of my extreme taper and even my hemline up. Probably took 1cm off the longest bits. I will try not to trim again until August or September, at the earliest.

    Like Spidermom, I'm not obsessing about measuring, because then I get upset and feel like my hair isn't growing. The last 4 inches or more of my hair are still bleach and heat damage, and I probably won't have an even hemline or less taper until these, and my &^@%# layers, are gone.

    My goal is waist length but THICK - if that means these tapering ends down to my tailbone, so be it - I want the very thickest part of my hair to be at waist. Right now, it's thickest between APL and shoulder, so a long way to go.
    Feb 2013, solid BSL again but shedding. Wondering if this is really terminal length. Hairtype 1b/2b, F/M, ii

    I microtrim every month or when I feel the hemline isn´t straight. I like my 30 inches for now.

    Think I shall keep track here, a little belatedly.

    April 1 - 34 inches
    May 1 - 34.75 inches
    Next trim - July

    *Very* unusual for me to get that kind of growth, but I had significant changes to my routine during April, guess they worked!

    I'm at a measly 3 inches (that's being generous). Right now I'm just texturing and trimming up the back to avoid a mullet as I grow out a pixie.

I know after a while my ends really thin out and look too wispy and my wurls don't form right. it is like they need the blunt cut to look decent.

    measured length today at 26 3/4".
    just trimed last night and took off a 1/2 to 3/4" all over measured after at 27 1/4". I couldn't believe it has grown that much.

    My husband just trimmed 4, yes 4 inches off. It is now just to the top
    of my bra strap or so. It feels so thick and appears wavier! That was
    what I wanted! I feel I can wear it down or 1/2 up without it looking
    thin or straggly.

    In a few months I will be back to close to what I had. Its a nice change for now!

    yeah. so much better after a trim. and definitely will have it back to your length. I always cut in my bang area and those just grow so much because of no dry ends. I need to get brave and take off 2" off my ends and I would probably get better growth. but for now I am trimming about 1/2" every month to take care of ends and keep some thickness at the ends. I can't stand my hair to be thin and straggly. my curls suffer.
