Default Growing Out Curly

Okay...this year im trying to grow my hair to my waist, stretched. My hair is currently around MBL stretched out.

While curly tho, my hair is nearly APL. I have a curl that reaches APL. My curly goal is to be at least BSL curly....it might take me two years tho. It took a little less than two years to get to my current length.

One day i hope to reach WL while curly. My hair is starting to grow down more instead of out.

Any body else have curly length goals?

I want to grow my curly hair to armpit length. It's currently shoulder length curly. This past year was the first that I wore my hair mostly curly. It grew but I could only really tell when I stretched it. I hope I can retain more length now that I kinda got the hang of things.

Anybody with 3c hair notice their hair growing more downward? I have a feeling that the longer my hair gets it might look more like Kimora Lee Simmons daughter's hair, Ming Lee.

I'll never have a perfect microphone afro

this is a nice thread right now, i wanna get to BSL and get a bit of a trim, havent been to the hair dresser for 2 years now, and get a same sort of shape cut into it. though my altimate goal is mid back length. then ill see how i like it if i like short better and go on from there im just touching BSL when wet so it shouldnt take too long any more.

I flat ironed my hair this weekend and it is hip length, when curly it's lower back length just past my waist depending on the products I use and how much the curls shrink. I realized that having hip length hair looks pretty but it is so hard to manage, I'd like to grow my curls a few inches longer to make up for some shrinkage.

I have noticed my hair growing downward as it gets longer. I used to have a curly fro when my straight hair was SL. Then when it got to APL straight I had a flat top fro lol. Now my hair is about 2-3 inches away from WL straight my curls are SL but still very full depending on what I use to style it.

I'd like to be completely below boob length curly, leaning towards waist length while curly. But who knows. My hair is still very big and full right now where it's at, mid boob or so but it's starting to lay down and grown down more than out like I'm used to. So i may leave it shorter and even get it cut if it means keeping all the volume.

My hair is very short and I haven't decide on a length goal yet. I kind of want to get my hair to my waist but I don't know how hard it will be to care for it so I may just settle to a length somewhere near my boobs. I may know the length I want to keep it at when I get to it.

I happen to like short hair so my length goal would be just long enough to put in a Bun. Gave up long hair years ago. I didn't get my first perm til I was 13. What I remember of my long hair then (it was boob length pressed out) was that it was difficult to maintain. Air drying took forever, pressing took even longer... I have thick hair.

Right now my hair is a bit past my shoulders stretched, but with shrinkage it still looks like a pretty short fro.

My goal, I don't know if I'll ever reach it, is hip length curly.

I mean this is a FANTASY at this point.

But a more reachable goal is mid back curly. So I'll be hip length stretched.


This will probably take 10 years. LoL!
