What's the longest time anyone has gone without a haircut?
 
What's the longest time anyone here has gone without a haircut, in the name of growing out one's hair? Right now, I'm at 4 months, and hoping to make it to at least 2-3 more before I have a trim!

Some people never cut their hair.

mariag002 05-28-2007 05:34 PM

Do you mean while transitioning or just in general? Cuz in my life the longest I've gone is 3 yrs, but since transitioning and growing out my relaxed hair the most I've waited is 4 months. That was because the ends were very damaged and its easier for me to wash & go if my ends are trimmed.

My goal is to grow out my hair 100% natural and then after that not cut it for 4 yrs. I know I can do it because a friend of mine did that and her hair (3c) is down to her waist.

I've gone years with out trimming my hair. Right now, I think I'm going to do twice yearly trims. My ends look really good, so I don't see the need for anything more frequent.

longest time without cutting hair

Actually, I meant going the longest time in between haircuts/trims. A couple of days ago, I trimmed my bangs, as they really needed it, but the rest of my hair is NOT being cut at all for awhile yet! I know alot of curly people don't have bangs, but on me, at my age, bangs do really look better(they aren't really curly, which helps!)

Wow, that's pretty amazing. My cousin who also is a curly waited a little over 2 years, but 4 years! I am afraid of the splits. The longest I've waited was 1 year and when I went for a trim, the stylist told me that I really didn't need it. The ends still looked very healthy. Does that mean that I can go a little over a year? hmmm :)

I've gone a year and a half without a haircut or a trim, although sometimes I'd sit at my desk while doing math and cut any split ends I happened to see. my last haircut was 6 months ago, when I chopped 10 inches...and now I kind of wish I hadn't, but I've grown back about 4 and I like this shape better.....I'm watching my ends but no splitting yet. When there is then I'll trim it.

(guano) Your hair is gorgeous! :shock:

It's been 7 months since my last haircut. The longest I've gone is a year inbetween trims. I'm trying to wait longer. It's good to know others have been able to go so long without trims!

Kaia 06-04-2007 03:31 PM

Wow, I'm a wimp. I think the longest I've EVER gone is 6 months, but usually I go every 3-4 months.

DolphinCurls 06-04-2007 09:38 PM

2 years for me

GiveMeABMW 06-05-2007 07:26 PM

After growing out my TR hair for 1 year, I chopped it all off (up to the curly growth) and am now 3 mos without a cut.

I hope to grow out my hair for another year or more before getting it cut again.

Curly hair seems to grow so slow! It takes 2" of straight hair to equal 1" of curly hair, it seems. :(

Ditto, that's beautiful hair!

Notinabottle 06-10-2007 10:52 AM

Thanks!

After my last horrible hair cut when i was 17 I just kinda didn't go anymore to get it cut. I'm currently trying to set up an appt. with Cala Renee in mass to get a devacut and trim it up a little bit because I feel like its starting to take over the world.
:D

I only cut my hair once a year, normally before summer begins. I didn't do that this summer though, so I'm probably going to wait either until this winter or next summer to cut it again. I don't really have a problem with splits, so I mostly cut it to even up the ends since some parts are curlier than others.

Isolinde 06-13-2007 09:51 AM

Nearly twelve years, as of now.

Last time I got my hair cut, way back in high school, they gave me an awful bob that made my hair frizz out like a giant mushroom cap. In self defense, I haven't been back to the salon yet.

That changes tomorrow, though. I made myself an appointment to get it cut, and I'm going in curly. (and not letting them touch shampoo to my hair, either!)

xcptnl 06-13-2007 10:33 AM

Isolinde and Notinabottle - have you had hair cuts yet? I am so curious since you both have gone so long.

I have gone 7-8 months top. But I always keep it shorter - shoulder length. I dont get split ends easily and other than some diffusing I dont do anything 'bad' for my hair so it usually pretty healthy.

Isolinde 06-13-2007 10:46 AM

Tomorrow afternoon. (June 14th)

I'll definitely report back when it's done.

*very nervous*

I will think happy haircut thoughts for you tomorrow.

Isolinde 06-14-2007 04:39 PM

Just got back from my cut!

I -love- it. He didn't take any length off at all (my hair only grows to about mid back naturally), but added some really long layers that are giving my curl a lot more bounce. At least right now, it looks like it's going to give my curls more room to form, since my hair is pretty thick, and usually weighs them down a bit. We'll see how it works when I'm the one styling it, though, and not a pro. *worries*
