The Official "Growing Out Our Hair" Dancers' thread

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!

How is it going everyone??

I have probably grown 1/2 inch (maybe more) but my hair seems to grow really fast when it's short (maybe I just notice it more) and then once it reaches a certain point realllly slows down. I just want it back to my shoulders!!! And I want the back to grow to cover up my scarily long hair line - that's creepy!

I've got about 3/4" or so since the horrible cut. It's been 6 weeks and that's about 1/8" a week, as I noticed before. Getting there slowly.... Anyone else have growth to report?

I've been tempted to get a trim...my ends look pretty dry sometimes. Good thing I don't have the money to spend on a haircut, otherwise I probably would've done so by now.

My hair is starting to brush my shoulders now. Must grow hair long enough to put in a ponytail!

Boy, it really depends on the gel (and the weather, and the position of the stars, and what kind of mischief Britney Spears has gotten into).

But she didn't want to take off much more so it's still a little off.

My stylist trimmed my split ends after my highlighting appointment, and my hair feelt a lot healthier, but a wee bit shorter.
I have to subscripe, because I'm growing my hair too. They're about shoulder length - it depends from how much they're curls. 6cm and I'll be happy, because I don't feel good with so short hair. But I dreaming about 20-30cm.

Oh, I forgot:
Grow hair, grow!!!: blob7:

Yep - mine has definitely grown! I would say almost two inches! My back is about the top of my collar and the sides are about 1-1 1/2 inches below my ear!!!

Mine is definitely longer - I would almost say the longest bits are shoulder length. I almost caved and get a cut earlier this month because it is looking shaggy, but I held out (because really it looks fine to all the world but me).

Keep growing

I've become quite preoccupied with getting my hair long lately. After my last (wonderful) cut, it still feels so much shorter. I know not too much was taken, and anything that was trimmed and evened out really needed to be done, but the shrinkage still leaves me feeling like I miss the rest, if that makes any sense at all... I'm horrible at officially measuring, but, right now I'm back to above bsl (just below my armpits mostly when I cheat and stretch it out). I never really did scalp massages before, but have started to do so with various oils at night, and use camellia oil often as a leave-in during the day....we'll see if the massage factor works-feels good, if nothing else, lol!
I just saw this thread but can I join in??? I just cut my bangs and they look awful, well at least I think so.
But anyway, I always do that start growing my hair long and then cut it off. I really need some support so I donīt do that mistake again and also the good grow hair, grow vibes : )

Has anyone tryed growing hair longer and thicker according to the moon phases? (like this website: http://lunatips.net/default.aspx)
I think it sounds very interesting but I want to know if people have had much success on it.

Also have any of you had success with coconut oil? I have been massaging it inot my scalp for a few days so far so I havent noticed any length but I definatly have noticed my hair is very soft at the roots.

I also use the camellia oil as my leave-in (just a few drops), and now my homemade flaxseed gel to which I've added a bit of both oils and aloe-I've discovered since henna my hair can't get enough of this stuff-needs moisture in amazing amounts right now. From what I've read, my hair will probably need less and less as time goes by...I think this will help protect the length and aid in growth *fingers crossed*. I wish I knew the benefits of light oils years ago...
