    Can anyone give me some pointers about what kind of light conditions I should create to get my camera to show the difference between new growth and dyed parts? My hair doesn't really look colored in real life because it seems that the fading is gradual and natural (sun bleached look) but up until now I always managed to capture the difference on camera. Even last week when I photographed my bun. I have no idea what I am doing wrong today and yesterday and I don't remeber the light conditons from last week.

    I think natural light (also outside maybe) would be the best. My compact camera just makes my hair all red, if I need to use flash. And it is not red.

    I agree as well with the whole "natural light" element for taking hair photos. This may sound odd, but whenever I do a hair toy action shot, I open the blinds of my bathroom window just to take self pictures with my iphone. I think with natural light you can get natural shine that will look good, even in a smart phone camera. If you mix the bathroom light with natural light, it also makes a dramatic effect. Play around with the lighting around you and maybe you'll find a setting that will make you happy. I hope that helps.

    Can I jump in here? About 15 years ago I had hair I could just sit on. I don't think I want that again but I love the way a friend's waist length hair looks so that's my current goal. I haven't measured but it looks about mid -back already. By feel I think I only have about 4-5 inches to go for my longest layer. I haven't had a trim in 10 months, so think i'll continue to just let it grow until it hits waist then start trimming to get rid of layers.

    Great idea, good luck everyone!

    I said I was jut going to wear my hair up five months, but I've decided to go the whole eighteen months. Maybe I can achieve full length retention, which at times seems impossible with my super-fine strands.

    I just plugged my last 3 measurements into the hair growth calculator worksheet and it says that I'll reach waist in January 2014. I don't think I have enough data in there for it to be all that accurate, but I feel good knowing that the computer thinks I will make it

    Keep your mind set and your hair long;
    Keep your head up and your heart strong.

    I'm in!! My goal is waist by New Years (at the beginning of) 2014.

    For waist I need about 31 inches. But I measure length (inches) when my hair is wet and straightened out, and mark landmarks when my hair i dry and poofy... if that makes any sense. Anyways, I'm gonna add another 3 inches for the poof and say I need 34 inches for a good solid waist with dry hair. That means about 9.5 inches, if I don't trim... well, I don't actually know how fast my hair grows, so let's hope I can make it.

    9.5 inches in 16 months. Hmm. Grow!!

    Good for you for wanting dry length. I'm too impatient and i'll call it waist when my hair is stretched wet. I'll do an offical blunt cut chop past classic length since I always bun my hair and never get splits. LOL

    I'm impressed! I don't think I could wear it up daily for that long. But then I like having my hair down as long as it's feeling cooperative that day. I think I do hair up about 1/2 the time.

    What kind of updo's are you using? I finally manged to sort out dutch braids & rope braids those are my current favorites. For buns, i've only managed to consistently do the lazy wrap & cinamon buns. I did recently get a few ketylo hairsticks & those hold much better for me.
