Wow, I just read this post by me in April of 2011. My hair is now just past waist/almost hip length curly, and tailbone length when I stretch it out. I'm getting close to a length where I want to maintain, but now I just can't bring myself to cut any length off.

That is really pretty long curly hair. How do you keep your hear healthy and long? What is hair regime?
Oh, that's not my hair, I wish it was though. That's just the length of hair I want. My hair is dark brown almost black and it's only shoulder length.

Ahh, I'm so jealous my hair is creeping past BSL, but it will probably be another year before I hit WL.

Your hair isnt very porous, right?Because it hangs very nice. Did it hang this nice when you had short hair as well?

Totally in. January 14th 2012 I chopped off literally all my hair I was always natural I just wanted a new look. Anyway nearly a year later its nearly bra strap length. I know it'll be waist length because that's where it was before I cut it.

This thread seems like it's been dead for a while but I figured I'd post pics anyway since I managed to accomplish my goal on time

This pics are 3 months old, back when I got my hair straightened by Dominicans in NY (my hair got frizzy fast from the Florida humidity over Christmas break tho). From the last time I posted it had taken me about 16 months to get from APL to WL. Now I just wish it still looked that long when it was curly lol

Anyway any ladies still out there on the waist length bandwagon?

I'm going for waist length--flat ironed--and I hope to reach that goal in the next year to eighteen months. I should be able to since I'm focusing on my protein/moisture balance and length retention now. The attached pic was taken 3/2/13, I think. I have a high waist (and I'm just realizing this lol so it shouldn't take too long for me to reach my goal. Anyone going to waist length?-imageuploadedbycurltalk1364900210.582451.jpg

Thank you Rednaturalcurls

It is a lot of hair but you get used to it as it's growing and adjust.
