Haircut

I just realized that it's been 5 months since I have had my haircut - no trims no nothing. I went and looked at some photos and you can tell my roots are getting pulled out. But boy, my hair does not grow.

For comparison I attached a photo from August and one from now. First one is August and 2nd was taken today.

In regards to Vagazzling: They just want to get into the goods without worrying about getting scratched up by fake crystals. ~spring1onu~

    It looks like it did grow a bit, but maybe your hair coils a lot more now, and it's not that visible dry. What's it look like wet and stretched out, no difference then either?

    It probably is about 2 inches longer wet. And it does look like from the middle to the ends is curling more. I was just shocked when I took the photos and they don't really look different.

    Your layers look longer for sure; the length could be curling up more. Whatever, it's looookin' good!

    I agree that it seems to have grown. It is curling tighter now, so that masks the growth. :) It still looks good! That's a good cut that can grow 5+ months and still look nice. :thumbright:

    Lookin' good, hair twin! :D





    Guano: My hair is looking funky. :( I think that last "trim" :rolleyes: she did to bring up the back did not work out. I would complain and go back, but I hate to drive so far and pay yet another $5 bridge toll. I may call her and let her know though. The top layer jumps up and it looks like I'm missing some hair in the back, a layer or two. :confused1: I might just go to the local stylist that fixed my last mess, she did a good job and it was 6 months and looked good.

    Your layers in the back grew about 3 inches. The bottom length grew too. This is my hair too -- most of the action is in the layers rather than the bottom length. I think they want to catch up.

    Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.

    I think if you go in for a trim it will look a lot like the Aug picture, more bouncy :) It obvious the layers have grown maybe leave the length and just trim them a smidge.

    Your curls are tighter and that will pull the length up more. It looks 2-3" longer which is average growth for 5 months. Very pretty.

    After I scrutinized more I did notice the layers have really grown - like SBB said they must want to catch up...very odd!

    It has grown out amazingly well - kudos to the haircut master!! I noticed I did not cover up my bald area on top very well-how embarrassing!

    I am going to call today for an appointment!

    And thanks for the hair compliments - you ladies are so sweet!

    You call that a bald spot? Oh, pleeze, that's nothing! Mine is slightly thinner there too and I check it each morning before I leave to make sure I covered it. I've noticed that a lot of people's hair is naturally thinner there.

    :laughing8: That's so funny! I've been wanting to start a thread called "Does anyone else have a hole in their heads?" since I started going CG, because I have a crown in just that spot too, and I'm constantly trying to cover it with errant curls. When my hair was straight it just fell straight down over it: I didn't even know it was there. Now, though? :dontknow: You're not alone.

    You do a better job of covering it than I do. What do you do? I have lots of hair there, it just wants to lie facing out of that spot, and not over it.
