09robiha09robiha Posts: 683Registered Users
I was just wondering if anyone here was going for really long hair, by which i mean waist, hip, tailbone, classic or longer?? I really want to go for classic but looked at my hair this morning and realised i still had about 8 inches to go until i get to waist :(

    I'm thinking about waist-length, but I'm still not sure. It depends on how burdensome it is as it gets longer and longer.

    Oh 8 in. is nothing! I haven't measuread but I'll have well over a foot to go just for lower-back length. I've seen a poster here, Speckla, who is going for tailbone length. I hope she doesn't mind me calling her out. :icon_smile:

    I'm aiming for waist - all my friends think I'm talking crap (they know how scissor happy I am) but I really want it. You never know once I get there I might just keep going.

    Aiming to grow hair to waist from buzz cut - slowly but surely.

    My goal for now is HL stretched. I'm about 1-2 inches away from WL now.

    I'm aiming for mid-thigh length. Who knows, I might not even stop there! :angel3:

    But yes, it kind of does matter how much trouble it's going to be. But most likely I'm just gonna grow it outttt! My hair is now (exactly) bra strap length.

    Yeah I'm considering waist length, but I'd be happy with boob length right now lol. I've never gotten past 3 inches above boob length, so I'm really trying to stick with it this time. I've got a ton of supplement regimens going, I don't dye it, I only heat style on low for like 3 minutes, etc. I'm looking for any other tips too if you guys know of any.

    Also, if you need any inspiration pics, I frequent another forum called the Long Hair Community. Lots of gorgeous long locks over there to drool over. :love5:

    P.S. - Here's a shot of where I was 3 years ago before the great chop. As you can see, I flat ironed a lot, dyed a lot, etc. I think it'll look really awesome once I reach this length again without having done all that other stuff to my hair.

    I want to get it to almost the waist !!! But I might just keep going until it hits the waist.

    Classic, as depicted in PrettyCurls's siggy, is halfway of the body. In short, butt length. :thumbright:

    I'm aiming for WL at most. I have a ton of hair and having it any longer would be too much work. I think it will be about another 2 years before I'm there.
    3c/4a
    I made it! Tailbone length stretched, WL curly

    Teri Laflesh's book "Curly Like Me" sits on my desk and everytime I get frustrated and an impulse tells me to shave my head, I look at it in hopes that one day my hair will graze the top of my butt.

    I think I win with my mullet hahaha! Just wondering wouldn't 'classic' be different on everyone because my butt would be more then half of the whole of me.(I have a long torso and shorter legs!) I know everyone has a different length at waist etc because we all are different proportions.

    Well, yeah. :sign6: I guess classic would be halfway the body. Although the butt is usually somewhere about the middle, right? :happy4:

    I suppose so- haha I would examine strangers, but I might get in a little trouble if they spot me staring at their butt! lol! :toothy10:

    I guess I was just trying to say everyone's actual length at classic would be different. If you measured a group of people who all had 'classic' length hair they would most probably be all different. It's not so a much a single length (i.e. at a certain increment in inches) but continuous - if that makes any sense?

    I'm growing my hair also. I have been trimming 1/4-1/2 inch every 6-8 weeks for years to keep it healthy, and have recently in the past couple months decided to grow to my waist or low back. I am going to try and not trim it so often(it's been nine weeks so far)and just trim it when it needs it. But it seems to grow so slow. I have 5 inches to go :toothy5:.

    Boob length? I guess that all depends on where your boobs are hanging! HAHAHAHAHA!:laughing1:

    Actually my (3C-4A) curls are almost there at around 12-13 inches when stretched, but I'm thinking of getting a few inches chopped off.

    I'm sure I can grow it really long, but it's so poofy-huge! (Way too big for my 5'1" frame!) I know I shouldn't complain because I have so much hair. It's a good thing, really. It's healthy, frizz-free and has a nice sheen to it.

    Lately, though, it's become more time-consuming to get the curls just right. And I use SOOO much conditioner, I think it's hurting my personal finances!

    I don't know...

    Im shooting for waistlength, minimum, and tailbone length max. Ideally I would like my hair to hang between hip and tlbn. Im still not sure about the shape. My hair grows in a natural V but I would prefer a blunt cut. I would probably grow out a few more inches past tlbn just to get even hip length hair.

    Ooh, that sounds really nice!

    It think after my hair grows out some more, hopefully, I'll cut my hair in a V. :bigsmurf:

    I'm aiming for MBL when dry and curly, which I think would be hip length (whch I was in Nov. '07 before I cut it off). I'm currently BSL dry and curly. However, when I straightened (not bone straight) my hair toward the end of November it was WL. I would guess I'm an inch or so beyond that since that was 3 months ago. But, who knows.

    Not sure if I will make it though since it is taking me longer to do my hair and I now have to section it to apply products. Also, the amount of product I am starting to have to use is ridiculous. We'll see. Once I start doing my Henna/Cassia treatments again when it gets warmer I may be able to continue to grow it. I normally use less product when I do those treatments!!
