Virtualbabe: Amazing curls and length. How long did it take you to grow it that long? I've been growing mine out of a pixie cut for 4.5 years and it feels likes it's NEVER going to be that long.
Thanks whatsercurl! I've always worn my hair long since my teens so I couldn't really tell how long it takes to grow. I know it grows at a slow rate and I would go for a trim once a year, about 2 inches off. I haven't cut my hair since last year so right now, my hair is down to the small of my back if worn straight and it springs back up about 5-6 inches when it's curly.

This is one of my better days I didn't do much just misted and added JCN&S. I guess it was a fluke cuz when I tried that again it didn't come out the same! It seems the MORE I mess with it the worse it gets sometimes!

Nope, you have the length that I want. It's bea-u-tee-ful!! I have never seen a bad hair pix from you! I definitely want your hair! Mine is going crazy. The weather is wet, cold and dry, hot every other day. It doesn't know what the heck is going on. And I shampooed with a protein based 'poo...3 times this week.

Thank you so much, but I had a little makeup on, but it was about 14 hours old at that point! Without any I have no eyebrows or lashes!!! They are white!!! My DH laughs and says the only time you really see my eyebrows and lashes is when I am sunburnt. Gotta love being a redhead!

Everyone's pics are so amazing, and I sure hope this wouldn't intimidate newbies, because I practically am one myself!

Mine too. But I needed the 2" trim because the ends of some curls were starting to split and look frazzled.

Awww!!!! Thank you all!!

I think it was like the perfect combination of product, product amount, weather, and drying circumstances. And maybe a little bit of an act of supernatural force.

Laughing out loud at this, as always rudee! I can top you, though -- I'm late to the party because I refused to even OPEN this thread until today. Dewpoints in the 20's all week and my hair has been HORRID. I was only able to open the thread because some humid hair came in yesterday, so I was happy again. Hair envy can be an ugly, ugly thing. But you all look great.

Maybe I should start a "worst hair day" thread???? Wonder if anybody would have the guts to post.... I wouldn't!

Wow, I didn't believe curly hair like this actually existed. It's gorgeous!! I give curlies such a bad name.

By all means, post a worst hair day threads. I don't normally take pictures of my hair, but my hair probably will be a good contender for one of them. And who knows, maybe people will post and we will all realize that even the best curlies have bad days and that there's hope for us yet. And at the same time, maybe the woodland creatures outside will come and help me bake a pie.
