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.
3b-3c CG
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.
3B with some 3a. Fell off but am now back on the CG bandwagon and looking for my HG products.

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!)

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.

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

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.
What's working this week:
Shower: Garnier 3x Nutrition shampoo 1x per week, cowash with Tres Semme Naturals, condition with
GF Sleek and Shine deep conditioner
Styling: Tres Semme Naturals as leave in, L'Oreal Melting gel and HE SMU raked in, LOOB and AG Re:Coil scrunched in, Jojoba Oil scrunched in when totally dry

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.

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.

3B that is no longer CG, but still endeavors to have healthy hair by not using sulfates.
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!)
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.

One good reason to only maintain a small circle of friends is that three out of four murders are committed by people who know the victim. ~George Carlin~

In regards to Vagazzling: They just want to get into the goods without worrying about getting scratched up by fake crystals. ~spring1onu~
Tomorrow afternoon. (June 14th)

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

*very nervous*

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*
