    I've been growing out a pixie cut and now my hair is shoulder length. My goal is waist length for the moment but I'm debating on tailbone length (or hip length) as real goal. I saw this picture of this girl's hair at tailbone length (or hip length I'm not sure which it is) and I really like it.

    That is really pretty long curly hair. How do you keep your hear healthy and long? What is hair regime? :)

    Oh, that's not my hair, I wish it was though. That's just the length of hair I want. My hair is dark brown almost black and it's only shoulder length.

    I'm at waist when I pull my curls out, but it springs right back up to bra length. I'm aiming for tailbone so that it will be waist when it's curly.

    Wow, I just read this post by me in April of 2011. My hair is now just past waist/almost hip length curly, and tailbone length when I stretch it out. I'm getting close to a length where I want to maintain, but now I just can't bring myself to cut any length off.

    Ahh, I'm so jealous :) my hair is creeping past BSL, but it will probably be another year before I hit WL.
    2c/3a, botticelli/wavy/'swavy (huh?)

    My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!

    Your hair isnt very porous, right?Because it hangs very nice. Did it hang this nice when you had short hair as well?
    Hair type/properties:
    3c hair, high porosity, mediumdensity, low elasticity, fine hair.

    Curly hair routine/regime:
    Combine the modified cg-method (low poo) and a modified tightly curly method.
    -Condition and leave in: Aubrey Organics, Giovanni Barzilian keratin and argan oil
    -Sealer: shea butter, Argan, olive and coconutoil
    -Gel: homemade flaxseed gel, Kinky curly custard, Queen Helene Curl royal shaping creme.

    Totally in. January 14th 2012 I chopped off literally all my hair I was always natural I just wanted a new look. Anyway nearly a year later its nearly bra strap length. I know it'll be waist length because that's where it was before I cut it.

    This thread seems like it's been dead for a while but I figured I'd post pics anyway since I managed to accomplish my goal on time :tongue5:

    This pics are 3 months old, back when I got my hair straightened by Dominicans in NY (my hair got frizzy fast from the Florida humidity over Christmas break tho). From the last time I posted it had taken me about 16 months to get from APL to WL. Now I just wish it still looked that long when it was curly lol

    Anyway any ladies still out there on the waist length bandwagon? :)

    I'm going for waist length--flat ironed--and I hope to reach that goal in the next year to eighteen months. I should be able to since I'm focusing on my protein/moisture balance and length retention now. The attached pic was taken 3/2/13, I think. I have a high waist (and I'm just realizing this lol so it shouldn't take too long for me to reach my goal. ImageUploadedByCurlTalk1364900210.582451.jpg

    Stretched I think im there. Curly...I probably have a year or so but im in!

    I'd love to grow my hair down to as long as waist length, but I don't know if I have the patience to wait that long before I get it cut! I actually want to donate my hair, and although I believe I now have the minimum length necessary, I'd like to donate more if possible. If I were not growing my hair out for donation, I'd just cut a few inches off now, because long hair is getting annoying to care for.

    I just cut my hair the longest portions flat ironed were hip length but I just couldn't deal with it. I actually don't mind all the shrinkage anymore when curly because when it is straight and that long it can be a nuisance. I cut it to waist length and I probably won't bother flat ironing till about October.

    I absolutely LOVE your hair! No more cutting! :::shakes finger::: lol!!

    So hip length straight is too much huh? ::takes notes:: the longest ive ever been is WL so i have no clue about Hip length.

    I've been transitioning for 9 months now. My hair and I are going through some ups and downs. I would love to grow my hair to my waist but I don't really know what to expect from it because I still have so much relaxer. Scared to do the BC! My question is, for those of you who have transitioned, is your natural hair now different that when you first started? I hope I'm asking this right.LOL. But if it's been years do you see a change in your hair? Do you know what to do with your particular type? Right now I'm feeling a little discouraged.
