    im going to join this if this is okay. I have just cut 1" off (end of feb) and dont intend to cut now until next feb. Prior to this i went 2 years without scissors.

    im 22.8" at present and really am hoping to get to waist by next Feb, its 7" off so i think if I dont cut I should get there!

    I had a big chop last spring, from tailbone to BSL. I haven't trimmed, and currently measure at 33" - a little past waist. I don't plan on trimming for at least another year, just occasional S&Ds.

    I joined the non-trimmers back in November '07. I am planning on going at least a year before my next trim.

    I don't remember my measurements in November & since my tape measure is still packed away I'll have to come back and add my new measurement later on in the month.

    Haven't trimmed in three years. . . still not trimming. I've had a long stall since about December, but thank heavens it's finally over. I was ready to throw out my measuring tape. It doesn't matter anyways because some of my layers seemed to have caught up in the meantime.

    I just had a trim - it was great - only about 1/4"..... and I don't plan on doing it again for a year. Excepting the occasional S&D.

    I haven't trimmed my hair in about 7 years, but I do a bit of S&D.

    My hair is about 62" when wet and about 60" when dry and brushed fairly straight. The waves make it difficult.

    I'm a non-trimmer. The last time scissors touched my hair was August 2006! I stopped trimming just to prove to nay-saying friends and family that one doesn't need to cut her hair to keep it long and healthy. It's been great to retain my length.

    I've trimmed back to 34" with an option to go back farther to 32". The ends are just too thin, so I'm going to maintain here for a while. I don't know how often I'll trim. The good news? I love the trim!

    I have not trimmed in several months (I have S&D though)

    It was after a trim in October '07 that I decided not to trim my hair for an extended period. A goal with some friends is may but I am thinking of going the full year, or close to it. We have a friends wedding we hope to go to in October so maybe a 'clean-up' trim at that point. I hope to be another 3 inches by October this year.

    Length history: (will update often)
    Sept 24, 2007 - 41 1/2 inches after 1 inch trim
    Oct 25, 2007 - ?? after a 2 inch trim (no measuring)
    Dec 3, 2007 - 40 1/2 inches
    Feb 12, 2008 - 41 1/2 inches
    April 18, 2008 - 43 inches
