Pixie grow out pics

Like Tree7Likes

Hear are some pics of my growing out journey thus far. I like to look back to remind myself that my hair IS actually growing. I'm at a really awkward length now but my hairdresser (Deva certified) says its almost past the awkwardness into fabulousness and it'll be smooth sailing from then on out. For now I'm rocking the headbands and staying patient!

I am going through the same thing right now! I stopped cutting my pixie in May and it's all around chin length now. I did cut off my mullet though so it would be longer if I handled the party in the back

I've been trying to grow out my pixie for 2 years! It takes so long! Especially since I'm always trimming to try to avoid the awkwardness.

Skydiva - your pics #2 and #3 are so cute! I love your color!

Your hair is so adorable and is growing out beautifully. Mine is short and kind of fro ish. I wish I could a pixie cut off
jezzz!! I hope mine grow out fast.

Iroc, if you always cut it to avoid awkward phase you will never grow it to get wher you want.

Here is my most recent grow out pic. This is day 3 hair so it's straighter. I use clips at the bottom to weigh it down while it air drys. It makes it seem longer while its growing Pixie grow out pics-imageuploadedbytapatalk1352576639.273051.jpg

I'm currently growing my hair out from a pixie. I think the most frustrating part for me is growing the short layers out. I'm seeing progress but I'm so limited with what I can do with it that I'm getting bored! I'm always on the look out for distractions (hair accessories, products, etc) to attempt to keep it interesting. I'm seeing the start of my waves but since there are so many different layers in there, they end up just sticking out. I try not to dwell on it too much...it's just hair! In the meantime, I guess I'll just enjoy hubby being able to play with my hair while he still can.

Product Junkie that keeps falling off the wagon!
I wore headbands with flowers or bows on them every single day for at least six months during this time. So much so that people at the hospital where I work still know me as "the nurse with the flower". It became my signature. I'd put a headband in and let the rest go wild and stick out. If not for headbands I'm sure I would've cut it off again. I'm just now growing past the hideously awkward earlobe to chin phase of curly hair. A good Deva trained stylist has helped ease some of the pain of particularly bad times with some light shaping every so often. He says I'm about 3-4 months away from smooth sailing to long hair. I sure hope so. You should post pics every month or two to allow you to look back on your progress. It helps a LOT! Good luck to you on your hair journey!

that is what saves me and prevents me from recutting. i have lots of scarves and just use one every day.i even get lots of compliments. as for sticking out pieces which i get this helps; put in gel, lots of it. diffuse. it "bends the pieces" down so they just look kind of curly.ive grown about an inch in 5 weeks so i figure by the end of march ill be able to mabie ditch the scarves.:
Your hair is so cute! I'm in month three after having chopped my hair into a really short pixie. I'm having a difficult time figuring out what to do with my hair at this point.
At that point for me I would gel it and let it air dry because that made it "smaller". This is when I started with headbands, scarves, flowers, and parting it different ways. I also visited my stylist regularly to get weight and bulk taken out of certain areas to keep it more balanced and less like a wild animal clawing at my head.

Can't tell you how many times I've brought this to my stylist.

Oh, you ladies are in my boat! I've kept my hair in a variety of pixie cuts since 2011. I decided in October to grow it out and stop fighting my natural waviness. Started researching and began using cg method in December. I co-wash most days because I run. My hair is in that really awkward stage where the sides don't quite meet the length in back. I've been trimming it out myself regularly since it was an assymetrical cut to begin with. I'm glad to see your pics, it helps seeing someone else growing their hair out gracefully. I feel like I'm almost back to an actual hairstyle and not obviously in the growing out stage!

Yep! You're growing out very nicely! I went through multiple "this looks like an actual haircut" stages followed by several "this looks like the mad hatter" stages. The stage your at right now was one of my best and longest lasting "this looks like an actual haircut" stages. I rocked that 20's style vintage flapper bob for all it was worth! I got compliments every single day. The stage right after that was by far the hardest and most awkward. Dear GOD did I have layers that fought with me! After a solid six months of headbands every single day, after my last shape up trim, I'm finally starting to settle into more of a bob and less of a mass as you can see in the pic. I often stretch my 3b into a 2c to keep it under control at this length which is what I did here.

I think I'm more of a 2b or maybe c. It's hard to tell because it's so short and I've been abusing it for too long. I'm hoping that by doing the cg method for a while it will encourage more curl as it gets longer.

It will. My hair got way curlier after following CG and growing it for a while. If I gel it and diffuse it I get a head full of 3b ringlets. If I rake it with gel and air dry it, I can make it 2b for a day. Pretty neat.

March grow out pic. Looks like we have finally achieved what can actually be called a bob.
