Growing thigh or knee length hair?
Is there anyone here trying to grow thigh or knee length hair?
Does anyone want to do a Thigh and beyond challenge? Im only armpit length 3c with some neck length breakage on the topp(darn flatiron) so i have a long time before im there but what the heck.

Ha! DUDE! I would be so interested in a thigh length challenge, but you know where my hair is right now......CHIN LENGTH I really think someone pressed the pause button on my scalp. Good luck to you and I both! Let me know if you have ANY TIPS AT ALL! :D I hope more people add to this. Love curly talk

Wow, I think thigh-length would be a bit too long for me. But, hey! Anyone who wants to try it, go for it!

I'm too short for hair that long. 5'1. I would DROWN in it.

Haha,Im APL too and would like to grow my hair to classic lenght unstretched,so it would be somewhere around thigh stretched,but I guess Im really far away from that goal- Ill have to do plenty of trimmings once my hair hits BSL (which I hope will happen this year :blob7:) to get rid of hair dye and weird layers.

Well,it seems to me that we all have a long road to go to get to our goals,but patience is the key- well get there once! :wink:

Hippyish is what I go for, hehe. ;) My hair is almost APL dry and almost BSL wet and I'm going for as long as I can get it to grow.

I'm a nerd and I like to do the math . . . my hair grows 3/4"-1" per month depending on the part of my head. I need about 30 inches more to get to knee length, I think.

That's 2.5-3.3 years.

Okay cool. By June 2014 I want hair that is knee length stretched. ;) That should be about classic, unstretched. I hope. If I do things right. I'm pretty good about keeping away from the scissors, but it's breakage I'm worried about.

Before I was CG (and before I knew I had 'curly' hair) my hair was thigh length, but I always kept it in a bun because I really didn't care about my hair. At all. It was a lot of work and I really didn't like to deal with it.

Then I shaved my head. :shock:

But I think now that I actually care about my hair, and I know how to treat it, I might be interested in growing it out again. Maybe not quite to thigh length, but then again..

I just noticed this thread! I realize that it is older, but I thought I'd bump it up! :D

My current goal is to reach knee length soon. I was hoping to reach that length this year, but I still need about 4 or so more inches before I get there and I don't know how long it will take since lately my growth has slowed down somewhat it seems.

I am hoping to go for terminal length and I hope that my terminal length is somewhat longer than knee length. :oops:

a young lady at work, has knee length hair. its amazing. we always talk hair together, she said she didnt really have a goal, she just grow it and learnt to look after it. she said when she doesnt feel like it no more, then she's cut it off. or she might grow it to the ground..... its great having someone to talk hair to.

I saw a little girl with thigh length hair today she looked to be around 9 yrs old it was so pretty, but having hair that long would drive me nuts lol. My friend in school had hair past her butt and in like 9th grade I remember she had it down and it got tangled around a screw on the back of the seat to her desk and no one could get it untangled so that had to cut her loose luckily she didn't care though she just wanted to be free from her desk lol

I think longer than hip length would be a bit much for me. I'm only 5'3", so if my hair was that long, I'd look like I was swallowed by a hair monster, lol. ;-) Currently, I'm trying to grow my hair to at least mid back length. As you can tell from my avatar, I've still got a while to go before I get there, but my hair grows pretty fast so it may get there sooner than I think.

For anyone who is growing their hair to thigh length and beyond, good luck! ^_^

Thigh length curly hair would be gorgeous. I had it to hip and loved it. I donated to LOL and now I'm thinking about growing out again. It is very possible.

I would LOVE to grow my hair that long but it seems like it's taking forever to grow. My goal right now is to grow it right below my cleavage and then after that- beyond! My friend's hair is actually thigh length (probably longer) and gets lots of compliments on it.

Id hate to have hair that long because if you bend down to pick something up or sit down your hair will touch the ground.
But id love to see how it looks.

Omg i posted this! that was my user name lol now i feel dumb for making new account...

bleuyteuy 10-18-2012 02:35 PM

What is classic length? I wanted to grow my hair to around the length of my butt unstretched so stretched will probably be around midthigh length.
I'm 5 feet 8 and I have tight curls. Right now unstretched I'm past APL but not quite BSL so I've got a while to go.

Honestly I have big goals but I hate thinking this far ahead cus its such a long way to go and a long time away.

Pelobonita 10-18-2012 05:50 PM

Classic length is were ur hair touches just under ur butt.

KellyB 10-25-2012 12:56 PM

I didn't know that was ""classic"" length... what does it has about classic? it is not common at all jajajaja

well, I also have big plans, I have a poster from a Dasani water ad (in other countries of latin america is called CIEL) in my room, I want THAT hair. I was looking for a picture, but could'n find it, but is the printed ad for this girl in this video -----> Comercial Dasani - YouTube

That's the hair I want. That length when dry, and hopefully that texture. Mine does not seems to be too far from there, and I try to keep it real when wishing and/or working for something. Let's see.

I'll totally go for it, but sometimes it does not depends on us. Growing process have phases and I've read some people experience a stop in their growing process.

I really hope mine grows to that length.

Knotty_Maddy 10-28-2012 08:56 PM

Mine is past BSL curled and reaches almost to my waist when it is stretched, I would like to grow it to classic length (past butt) but I don't know what that will be like! ;p I am only 5'1" so I might look like Cousin It from the Addams Family, lol!

Anyways I have at least another 18 months to reach anywhere near that length....hope I have the patience to make it there! My hair already drives me crazy sometimes at this length - it takes forever to style and dry, it is always in knots, it costs me a fortune in hair products, it gets caught and tangled in purse straps and zippers and stuff, and my SO is constantly pulling it by accident if he puts his arm around my shoulder etc. ...I am constantly getting it out of jams! painful! :sad2:

So I am not sure hair that long would be nice to live with...although it is lovely to see! Almost Medieval :D If any of you get there, I'd love to see pics...I will post one as soon as I figure out how ;)
