Who's gonna start the 2012 waist length callenge ;-)

Like Tree83Likes

Looks like it grew a couple of inches. I'm gonna use the bottom of the wings on the shirt to mark waist length. So it looks like I've got about 5-6 inches to go. My ends still look and feel healthy, not many split ends. At this rate I should still be on track to reach my goal by the end of the year. Happy growing ladies!!!

I think the fighting the urge to trim has been the hardest thing - but the most rewarding. Just let it grow!
So I measured my hair yesturday, since the length goal of WL seems to be around 31", and fully dry it's 23.25", and soaking wet it's 27.25".
Btw, thanks for the tips @LisaLisa

I'm currently doing both of those things (countdown to goal!)
I totally know what you mean by fighting the urge to trim Lisa. I hope I learn to do that though because I am just about satisfied with my ends. I got almost all of the straight dead pieces.

Hey,

May I join this? I'm just joined this site today but I've been trying to grow my hair out for a while. I dont use product in my hair so my hair can be anywhere from 2b to 3a when dry and 2a when wet. I got my hair trimmed today so I figured it would be a good time to actually figure out what I'm doing. The back of my hair is v-shape so the longest part when wet is a little longer than the bottom of my shoulder blades. shortest part is at arm pit length. Any tips?

I'm so bad! I broke down and straightened but its ok cuz Jelli you did it first lol jk What temp did you use? I used 350.

I THOUGHT I was satisfied with my ends but yeah no not really. I will continue slowly trimming.

I recently finished an 100 day hair challenge, wasn't necessarily to get my hair to waist length, i just want it really long but waist length might just be my new challenge. For my 100 day challenge, i took biotin and folic acid everyday and used no heat products and it was over march 30th but i am going to the salon to get it straightened today and maybe a few highlights since i wad too lazy to do my own hair but so excited to see my growth!!

I'm kinda glad you did because I see we are pretty close in length with straight hair. I think you may have a couple of inches on me. So now you're my grow out partner whether you like it or not!!! Lol. The flat iron I use goes up to 400 degrees so I turn the dial down a little bit from there so somewhere between 350 and 375.

How are you maintaining your hair at night, wrapping?

I'm in!! My hair is just past my shoulders right now and it grows very slow, so it will probably take me 3 years to get to the waist but I'd like to try and see.
Welcome risos!

I'd like to join the challenge, but somehow I know my hair won't make it to waist for at least a year or few. My hair is currently Bras Strap length? Barely. It's taken me years to get it from shoulder to here, so...

Has anyone had success with adding just Folic Acid tablets to their diets? Plain biotin broke me out badly, but I want to take something... Thank you.

Folic acid is great. I've been using the Nature Made brand.
