    I started at about 21" in September 2007 (last trim, and the first one in 18 months) and am now at about 25.5" with no intention of trimming for at least another 18 months.

    Well, I only do S&D

    Jan:34.5 Inches
    Feb: 35.5 inches
    I was under a lot of stress here so i think that might be why I slowed down in growth
    1st March: 36 Inches
    1st April: 37 Inches
    26 April: 38 inches

    I haven't trimmed since July, although I think I'm going for another very small trim in June, and after the summer may do small trims to get rid of layers, but I haven't trimmed since my last measurement, so here they are:

    26 July 2007: 19"

    31 July 2007: 19.5"

    20 August 2007: 20"

    30 August 2007: 20.5"

    Here ends my compulsive measuring stage. Here also ends my lovely superfast summer growth. My next measurements are a bit random in terms of dates, but I've resolved to do a better job in future.

    20 October 2007: 21"

    12 December 2007: 22"

    23 April 2008: 24.5"

    Note: I always round to the nearest half-inch, because otherwise I manage to confuse myself (I suppose it comes from being taught metric at school, where it's all in decimals, then looking at the measurements of inches, which are in sixteenths and it all just makes my head hurt).

    I measured a day and a half early , and came up with 27 inches (with a few hairs at 27.5), which is an inch more than last month! Yay for spring/summer growth rate increases!

    I am not against a trim if I need one but I haven't felt I needed one in a long time. My last cut, I went to waist length in January '07. Currently between tailbone and classic.

    I'm a non-trimmer (with random S&Ds) but I almost never measure.
    Wish the site had a way to keep track of when you changed your measurements on the avatar section, but I do believe I did that measurement maybe a week after the site came back up.
    Maybe I should start measuring more often.

    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.

    Okay, I had my daughter measure and she read it at 34".
    At this point, I don't even rem. my last measurement or when it was. So we'll start from here and move forward.

    So I measured the other day, and I seem to have stalled where I was when LHC came back up. This is pretty distressing, and I'm sure it was caused by stress, but I really want some new growth.
    I'm going to have to start taking hair vitamins again and see if that helps, cause this is a bit depressing.

    I was at 22.5" in April 2008 when I first discovered this site, and now I'm at 23" at the longest layer. I'm not planning on trimming at all until most layers are at BSL. I have a long back so it'll be a while
