2013 TRUE waist length challenge?

Like Tree22Likes

I cant believe that August is halfway over!!! Anyway still hovering around MBL (stretched). Sooo I've decided to toss my scissors and wear protective styles until the end of the year. I plan on wearing two strand twist for about 2-3 weeks, wash then re-twist. Here are some twist Ive been wearing for the last 2 weeks. Attachment 38005Attachment 38006

It took me a whole day( with breaks) to twist my hair this size. I don't think I could handle the time and arm pain it would take to make them smaller lol!

I've been growing my hair since Sept. 27th, 2012 and my hair has a lot of shrinkage but it's sort of at an in between of BSL and MBL... It is just past the end of my bra-strap by maybe an inch so I think it might be safe to say it's mid-back length. Well I'm going for waist length myself and I don't have a specific goal in mind for when it needs to happen although it would be nice to have waist length hair by December I'm about 2 or 3 inches away though so I'm not putting my hopes in it xD I'm just rooting to get as close as possible

I got my first trim on Sept. 27th, 2012 and my last one I got March 30th, 2013 and It's about time for another trim because my ends are getting a little dry now. Luckily I can go quite a while and not get bad ends so I hope it means I'm doing something right!!

Thanks I think I'm going for a length just before my butt so I think hip length is what I'm going for but I'm taking it one goal at a time xD
You're welcome! I'm on my way to hip now... I'll give it until February.

I'm just starting mine. I chopped off my waist/hip length yesterday (long story-no pun intended). Any tips on how trims work and protecting/keeping it healthy?
Thanks (;

Sometimes I get carried away and manipulate him too much. He tells me he's fine on his own but I never listen. I wash him less now and all in all we're happy.
