    Thanks WCD, AmRed, and foreveryours!

    WCD, I agree, the pictures I remember of your hair always look much wavier to me, but very healthy.

    AmRed, your hair usually reminds me of mine, too -- though yours always looks nicer!

    foreveryours, I'm beginning to think knee is a scam. So close, and yet so impossible, lol. A lucky fluke for those who make it there.

    Darn hair dressers and their misplaced bra straps... Looks like it'll be longer between hair cuts this time, with an extra 6 inches to regrow!

    I'm doubtlessly creeping up on it (eta 4 more months) but I have noticed the "aversion" in the part which doesn't get braided. Interesting

    Your hair is looking just lovely, SparrowWings.

    Here's my autumnal length update. It looks past FTL but it's just the angle; in reality, it's something like 0.5 cm away from fingertip. My ends are looking a mess but I don't blame them after everything they went through this summer. I will be maintaining for the rest of the year.

    Aww, shucks. Thank you.

    Ylva, looking very beautiful! And soooo long!

    I feel you. My ends are so floaty they seem to just want to levitate above the knee.

    Yes I think so too. My hair has looked the same length for months, and has been knee stretched for a bit now. I'll be happy when it finally looks knee length.

    Ylva your texture + that length is really beautiful. I really enjoy seeing your progress over time.

    I'm returning to say that I am going to be in this thread a while longer. Possibly forever. I was really determined to get to knee before cutting back but it was taking longer than I expected and I was unhappy enough with my ends that I was avoiding the LHC and my other online hair-related platforms. I was really close. Husband said that it looked knee from afar but when he crouched down to knee level (I love that man, he humors me so -- LOL) it wasn't quite there, except for maybe a few hairs. It was starting to look knee in some pictures.

    Anyway, this morning I went to a local barbershop and had my hair trimmed back to FTL/FTL+ ish. I'm happy with my decision even though I think it was about 5 inches off. (Husband said he'll measure tomorrow and we'll see. Last measurement before the trim was 52.25".) Anyway, here are the before-and-afters I took.





    Going forward I think I am going back to regular trims. It had been over a year since my last real trim and I think my ends were worse off for it. So I might hover around FTL/mid thigh forever, or I might be able to get to knee, albeit much more slowly.

    Beautiful Ylva and Zesty!

    I'm in the same boat Zesty, albeit at a sorter length. I keep making it to ftl (with knee as my ultimate goal) and then cutting back because I just hate my ends so much! I'm sitting at just over classic now and I think a big chop back to hip or tailbone might be what I need to get back into enjoying my hair.

    Just popping in to pass around a few compliments -

    Zesty, I have to say, your trim looks really great - your hair looks so healthy and it must feel good to have a super fresh hem. To my thinking, there’s a particular joy in a classic+ blunt hem; a bit of a flex.

    Sparrow, I don’t think I had ever seen your hair before - your texture looks like very lazy spirals, am I reading it right? It is so lovely!

    Ylva, look at those ends, they actually look really nice (even for bleach ends, especially I mean). It looks amazing. And past classic, way to go! When did that happen, right?

    Zesty, that is awesome! Looking great, whatever length it is!
