Default Growing Out Forum?

I wanted to bring this topic up here to see what the other ladies thought before making a suggestion in the feedback forum. I was thinking that it would be great to have a section just for topics about growing out hair. When I search for long hair topics, I find that there's long hair/growing out topics on almost every one of the hair forums here. It would be great if they could be combined on one board. What do you think? Do you think people would visit it? I think it would be busier than some of the other hair forums here. I used to go to TLHS.org, my favorite long hair site, but it's shutting down. I'm not so crazy about Long Hair Community. I go to this site quite a bit anyway, so it would be cool if we had our own mini long hair/growing out section. What do you think?

I'm growing mine out too, but I'm not sure what's there to talk about. I figure I just wait, right? Might be interesting to see what other people have to say about it though.

I'm not trying to grow mine any longer than it already is, just trying to keep it healthy at this length, but I'd definitely find that kind of discussion interesting!

That would be a great idea. Especially since at the LHC, there are all hair types. The one thing that sucks about growing curly hair out is that it takes forever due to shrinkage!

I think it might be beneficial to have a seperate forum. It could be a support forum. I've found a lot of info about taking care of curly hair. And a lot of info about taking care of long hair. But it would be nice to know how to actually GET long, curly hair

There are lots of vitamins/supplements for increasing growth to discuss, at-home trimming and dusting methods (learning how to get the most "mileage" out of your trim/cut)... Also we can use it as a support center, like someone else mentioned. Maybe someone will have advice about getting through an awkward growth stage, for instance.

This is a great idea. I am currently growing my hair out AND taking a double daily dose of GNC hair, skin & nails formula. I am desperate for any information that will keep me from going back under the scissors. Last cut I had didn't turn out as well as I thought it would. she cut too much, against my wishes. So now I am back at the very familiar "Square One" and willing to handcuff myself to the house in order to NOT get another haircut for a long time.

LET"S DO THIS THING!

I'd be game , I'm trying to grow my hair long and it would be great to get advice, especially since my hair hasn't been more than 2 inches below my shoulders since 2nd grade

What a great idea!

There are a lot of ladies here (including myself) that are growing out there hair, and woul love for their to be an added forum that would cater to that.

I'd love to have a hair growth forum! I'm also growing out my hair, and I'd love to have a place to hear everyone else's tips on growing out hair.

Since I'm growing mine out, (even though I just got a trim and she took off more than I would have liked) I'm all for a growing out forum! ~~jax

Okay, count me in too. I'm trying to grow mine out too. I'm hoping for another 6 inches or so, if not more. I'd love to participate in that forum.

we have a grow out challenge on our 3b forum, and we support each other by not getting a haircut unless we discuss it first! i'd participate in a longhair forum for sure. my hair is just about 30" long now, and i am about to get a shaping with carlos in feb-he's good about not cutting too much and lets me come once a year. i find that the way to grow your hair is DON'T CUT IT
so much for brilliant words of wisdom

The pre-cut discussion sounds like a good idea. I had a cut yesterday when I had my color done. My ends were bad since I've been have a challenge with conditioners this winter so I had about 2 inches cut off, putting me at 27 inches right now. But, I keep wondering if it's too long to be flattering and have thought about hacking off 8 inches or so. I know I'd be mad if I did, so I didn't go through with it. The last time I had a trim before yesterday was July.

I just found a decent conditioner this week (hopefully), so I hope that helps with ends for the rest of the winter. I need to learn about this dusting of my own ends though.

The same thing happened to me in July! I asked for layers too (but I had my hair straightened) and also asked for bangs. The bangs turned out great but I got a cross between a bowl cut and a mullet. She literally hacked off everything...
