Default Hair length goals

Before joining NC I never had hair to my shoulders and I thought if my hair was shoulder length, I'd be super happy. Now it a few inches past my shoulders then I said well if I can get to APL, I'd be the happiest woman in town. It looks like I will hit tha goal(with my lowest layers) before the year is up. the more I see Black women with long healthy hair, the longer I am willing to have mine.

With APL on the horizon, I said I think if my hair was BSL that would be more than enough hair for me, then I get on youtube or LHCF and I say well midback doesn't seem too difficult. Now I am like I think I will let my hair grow until it decides to stop...

Anyone else experience this? Share your hair length goals.

You my dear have hair anorexia LOL
Welcome to the club!

You will especially get it by going to the LHCF forum. I think my hair is long, go there, I feel bald LOL

I'm MBL now. My goal is waist length. I think that's my goal. My goal last year was BSL but when I got there I thought my hair was short.

I don't want really long hair (had it b4) but I'd love to have big hair that grows out. I doubt if I'll ever get there. My fine strands always flop down When I get enough hair to do twist/twist outs and braids/braid outs, I'll be happy. I just want to do something other than WnGs.

My (current) goal is arm-pit length, unstretched. I think that's all the hair I can handle!!! I know I'll be tempted to get to BSL once I hit APL, but by the time I hit APL, knowing my hair, I'll be in my mid-30s with kids and won't want to spend the time on more. I saw a lady on LHCF with shoulder length unstretched hair similar in curl and texture to mine; she straightened for her birthday and that puppy is waist-length! I don't even WANT to know what APL straightened would be.

I don't really have a specific length goal in mind. I just want enough hair to do alot of styles with. APL or somewhere around there would be good, I think. I can't see myself past BSL though, I don't have the patience for all them tresses, lol!!

the longest I've had my hair was hip length while natural and bsl while relaxed. I was little when my hair was hip length and then I got my first relaxer and it was all down hill from there. Everybody I know has almost the same life story to tell about their hair, "when i was little my hair was long and thick but then I got a relaxer and it fell out".
I want apl unstretched and hip length stretched. pictures of my desired length are in my siggy. the picture of the straight hair is not hip length, I couldn't find a picture of afro hip length hair.

i want at least BSL, WL at best, when stretched. I don't want to go over board.Also, i am rather short(5 foot 3), so i don't want to look like cousin it.

My goal length is below shoulder to shoulder length unstretched hair which I hope is about BSL or MBL once stretched. I think that I would be able to handle that much hair. All I really want is a pony puff, though. Hopefully, my goals will be achieved in three more years.

wanting extreme length is new to me. I have been about MBL for a long time. I thought my hair was long til I started frequenting LCHF. Now I want WL. We shall see.

When I first did my BC I wanted back length hair. Now that it has grown, I'm not anxious for more hair. I have enough hair to do as it is. I'm comitted to enjoy every stage. And if ever I feel like it is too much, I will just cut it off and start over. I already miss my super short hair.

I'll be satisfied with MBL hair unstretched. I was half way there too but I let a scissor-happy stylist go wild.

My goal is to have armpit length hair when it's in it's natural state. So what is that? About bra-strap or midback length. But who knows... Some parts of my hair is now shoulder length and I only had an inch of hair in January. Unfortunately, it shrinks up to neck length in it's natural state.

My ultimate length goal is hip-length. Not too sure if I want it any longer than that, I'll see when I get there.
