    Post Retire your ruler for 90 days!

    I though it would be a fun idea to start a challenge for all of the measure-holics here on LHC. I have decided to put away my beloved ruler and measuring tape for 3 months and stop obsessing about length for a while. Who's with me?

    Would we get one more measure-in for September or are we cut off from here?

    I can't see any harm in a last measure in. The end of this month will be my last. I'm determined not to measure until the end of November. Hopefully not stressing about growth will make it grow more.

    Ok, I'm in. I'll be too focused on school anyways for the next 90 days. Heck, I might just go 120 days until the New Year.

    One more measurement for September then nothing more until January. I think I can do this. I'll have DBF hide the measuring tape.

    I am up for this. I do need to measure in Septenber as I last measured in June. The reason I do this is because I do think unless you have very straight hair it can be hard to get an accurate result month by month. I also think your hair grows in fits and starts and so one month you may get no growth and be really depressed and then get an inch the next month.

    [offtopic] wow, Coriander, those are some awesome braids you got!

    sorry guys, cant do that I don't measure it that often and I don't need to - I can feel the length when I wash it in shower, I just can't help it - I can feel it

    I'll join in. I'm a daily measurer, but since I cut 1.5" off, I've decided not to measure so much. 90 days I will have my length back and hopefully it will look much neater. I think my family will be glad of the break too, I've noticed a few rolled eyes when I come downstairs with my tape measure.

    Weirdly enough, I go a fortnight with absolutely zilch, and then almost over night I will gain 1/4 of an inch. It could be down to our measuring of course, but my sometimes just feels a bit longer overnight, like I have short bursts of growth .
