The Official "Growing Out Our Hair" Dancers' thread

I'm in! My hair was just above the shoulders this morning, but my Deva stylist got a little too excited today and took my hair up to my chin. The style was incredible, minus the length... Hopefully it will at least allow me to grow out my hair without major style issues?! I'm still sensitive about it, fighting back the tears of frustration, and trying to have a positive outlook...
With that said.... I'm in and dancing full speed.
Cheers to no scissors and much needed support.

I think I have about 1/4" of growth. Judging by my roots (the gray ones).

I would say the same!! Only 5 more inches to go to get back to about where I was!

I'm gonna dance and dance and dance and dance!!!

My hair, when curly, is just at my shoulder tops and I want it about midway to BSL from there (any longer and it pulls all my curls out and starts looking stringy!) but my main goal is the bangs I had to chop off due to breakage... I want them back to the same length as the rest of my hair! They're at the tip of my nose when stretched, but when curly, they don't reach my eyebrows WAHHHHHH!!!

Yeah, so I just realized that at this rate, if it grows 1/8" a week, it will take over 48 weeks to get back to where it was!

My hair is chin length now. It seems everytime it gets to about shoulder length I cut it off. I get so frustrated (bored too, probably) because of the weight and how my hair takes over my head. Would you like some face with that hair?

I really need someone to turn too when this happens.
OhMyCurls... I have to join in on this too!!
: blob7::b lob7:

I've been trying to grow it out siiiince... oh four years ago when satan took the form of a very cute 23-yr old hair dresser who screamed something about my hair being dead, and chopped it up to my chin when straight, ears when curly... I had a less than 1" long pony tail at best.

right now its just reaching shoulder length...almost... the right side is a little past and the left is just there (results of really bad trims since then)

I was thinking of cutting on thursday... I just HAVE to do something about the triangle head... maybe I should just do the top layer (the ONLY part thats triangular) whatcha think?? I want like 3 or 4" past shoulder length...

btw I'm SOOO loving the fact that there are other ppl that understand what I'm saying about my hair.. none of my straight-haired friends seem to get this... and ALL of my friends have straight hair... thank you long island.

Well I had my hair cut and cried at first I hated it but my hair has 'relaxed' into it a bit now. Its still not what I wanted but its not so awful I cant live with it. I do however have stupid long curls at the bottom like 3 inches below the rest, and she feathered my hair!!!!!! I could almost hear the curls crying out as she did it. Had major frizz for few days afterwards, but seems to have settled down a bit now.

I'm in! I was doing really well up until March 07. After that I pretty much threw in the towel and neglected taking care of my hair for almost a year! Hopefully this thread will get me back on track to my waist length hair goal. My length right now is just past shoulder length.

ETA: Oops! Didn't realize this group was for growing out bad/short haircuts! Although I didn't get a too short cut, I am growing out a pretty bad dye job! Does that count?
Texture: Fine
Porosity: Low
Elasticity: Low
Density: Medium/High...I think

So my brother's in on this too now-- although he won't be on the boards.

There are pics of him on my fotki. Hes a hockey player who grows his hair out every year and won't cut it (superstitious bunch) he wants it back to 8"... We had a field day with it one day and took my flat iron to it (I know blasphemous)... quite possibly the most entertaining 40 minutes of my life...

anyway
for the little one!!

And another one joins the dance

I tend to get bored with my hair easily, so I'm growing out a short cut (now just above shoulders as opposed to b/w chin and ear), aiming for BSL. As well as blondish highlights. Natural is the way to go for now

Is it too late to join? I am ready to dance
I am growing out an inverted bob that I loved straight, but not so much now that I threw out the straightener (which is frustrating because it looks good on others I've seen, but looks too little girlish for me). I know I need a trim and shape up, but I am afraid of losing length even though I love my stylist. I am between chin and shoulder length now. I can finally make a somewhat decent ponytail. Hooray!!!!

I am hoping to grow it at least a few inches below shoulder length before I get tired of it (my typical MO is to grow my hair long, chop it off, repeat--I don't do this intentionally, but I crave change and get bored easily). So, for now at least, I am dancing.
botticelli-ish bob.

-Suave Aloe & Waterlily cowash/leave-in
-Giovanni Direct Leave-In
-FOTE aloe vera gel

I hear you on the ponytail. It's been so hot here and I wanted to put it up today. I didn't have enough to get a good twist to clip it up. Short pieces kept falling out. I had to use an elastic to make a tight, high ponytail, then flip the ends up and clip.

I am very proud of myself for resisting the urge to cut this week! I always want to cut when I'm stressed out. this week I weathered the dishwasher overflowing, blue screen of death, PMS, and more, all without cutting!
