This was about 6 years from a bob. I don't think I'll grow this long again, maybe if it all goes gray, because I'd like to have a looooong thick gray braid.

This is gorgeous.

My hair is about mid-back; lower back when its wet. I have found that its somewhat difficult and a challenge to care for long hair. No wonder my mom cut it when I was a little girl. I won't have the length for long though. I want to grow my hair out enough to donate to Locks of Love and have enough length for below the shoulder blades. Any shorter would not do for me.
Somewhat protein sensitive

Co-wash: Suave Natural's Tropical Coconut; Garnier Fructis Triple Nutirtion
Condition: same as above
Leave-in: Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition; LOOC
Styling: BRHG; HETT

I'm going to my terminal length which I haven't been at for like, 8 years. I think it's waist but I could be long. I chopped everything off for one last time and it's all growing back now. It's gone from the top of my ear to allllmost down to my shoulders. I've got a long way to go!
I'm growing my hair from chin length to mid-thigh length!

Default looking its true length

hm. well i cut mine recently, but shoulder length for me is still probably a good 7-8'', just coiled up really tight. i want long hair sooo badly. i want my hair to be as long as shelly davis's(the creator of kinky-curly) in this picture:


i try not to be ambitious, especially since my hair coils up so tightly instead of ever looking very long.

some things that worked pretty nicely for me:
-kinky curly curling custard. when i put it in well and thoroughly, it really does add length, as long as i stay pretty still and down touch it much while its drying

-using clips. i pin moderately heavy clips to my ends while my hair is drying and has the gel on it, and then take them off when its dry--it really adds so much length! depending on how heavy the clip is, it works really well. pins with attachments work well for small bits, but claw clips work well on the ends for larger sections

I was inbetween classic and thigh length the last time I truly cut my hair. I didn't know how to take care of it and it was just a burden, so I shaved my head.

Now that I've discovered natural haircare and know how to take care of my curls, I think I'll grow my hair to waist length. For me, anything longer than that is too much to deal with... of course, I could just not cut it once it gets there and see how that goes.

At the moment, my hair is barely skimming BSL.
Hairtype: 3a/b, normal elasticity, low porosity, medium thick & fine- my hair can't get enough protein!

*****HG Routine*****
Cleanse: Care Cure Conditioner
LI: Biolage Conditioning Balm (not very often used anymore, really)
Styling: Eco Style Protein Gel and a diffuser (pixiecurl method).

I'm aiming for waist length when curly. I'm pretty much there, but I think it will look better in 2 or 3 months... It needs to thicken up a bit towards my ends. Tailbone would be cool too. But I can't get there until the summer, at least.
3C, fine/med texture, normal porosity, high elasticity, very defined spiral

Holy Grail Products: TRESemme Naturals conditioner, my mango/shea butter mixture, Apricot Kernel Oil, Coconut Oil, EVOO & Cantu Shea Butter

I want to get to at least my lower back. Right now I'm about APL but I think I need to get rid of some ends first. I also need to grow out some chemical color and my roots are only a couple inches, so this is gonna take a while

Ok I would like to get to classic length. I would love that, very very much.

That would equal mid back length for me in a dry braid out. But I have a looooong waaaay to go.


You never stop learning...

I want to hit classic, maintain that, then try to go longer if the length doesn't stress me out! Haha!

I want anything from waist to tailbone length stretched, I haven't decided yet. I'll have to see how well I can handle the length of waist length first (I have A LOT of hair). If my hair is too much at any of those lengths MBL would suffice. I'm like a good inch above BSL now.

Big Chop: 11/25/09
Cottony/fluffy, medium/coarse, high density & porosity
SL - APL - BSB - BSL - MBL - WL - HL
