Thread: I just had to say

  1. #1

    Talking I just had to say

    I love looking at everyones progress pictures. Its just so inspiring and exactly what I need to keep me going when it feels like my hair is just not budging, I know it is and im not planning to even wear my striped shirt till my next update photo, so I can be suprised right along with you, as tempting as it is to check after only 3 weeks I can wait 6 more, when I look at the new pictures posted every day I cant wait to click on and see updates from everyone.. Thanks everyone for sharing and having this same crazy obsession as I do...

    I agree with you 100%. I find such inspiration looking at progress pictures.

    I just keep plugging along, trying not to become toooooo obsessive about my hair; just taking the best care of it I can, being gentle with it, etc.

    I'm hoping one day I look in the mirror and say, "Wow! When did my hair get so long???" LOL

    I check out the albums for inspiration everyday. Compared to some, my hair is long. But for me, my goal is still so very, very far away.

    I like seeing progress photos too. My hair's reaching BSL, and by my estimation I should be at waist around 9-12 months from now. It helps to look at photos of waist or longer hair, because I can imagine being there myself.

    I love that you use your striped shirt to measure growth! I think there are one or two other folks that do it. Seems like it would be a pretty effective way to measure, especially since I'm lazy and don't like to bother with measuring with a tape measure--I'd rather go by body landmarks.

    I am so impatient so I am with you, redneckprincess. I just had to quit measuring, even monthly was too soon. I know I will reach my next goal - waist - somewhere between Christmas and next summer so I am trying to just ignore my hair and growth for the time being but it is hard!! Just wondering, did you ever try the SMT?

    Good idea to wear the striped top! I used to measure every month, but then that became SO depressing for me; like watching water, waiting for it to boil. So I gave up and just started doing measurements every 6 months or so. I don't know the last time I got out the tape-measure...it's been well over a year. I'm happier without that dang tapemeasure, I can tell ya that much!

    SMT + scalp massages helped my hair grow a lot more quickly
