Okay, here are my pix. The first pic is the one I took the other day with my bra over my measurement T to give you an idea of where BSL falls on me: This pic was taken after I straightened, but before I trimmed: This pic was taken after I did a little trimming: I wanted to trim more but my hair isn't completely straight and my mom was having a conniption that I had the nerve to put scissors near my head. That said, I have technically reached BSL, but, I don't want to claim it just yet. I want more fullness, and I want more of a blunt cut. I did reach my goal of not having to stretch my hair when measuring, but let it fall to the measurement line naturally. I ultimately want healthy long hair, not straggly long hair. The next time I straighten will likely be in March, and this time around I will get it bone straight. Hopefully by then I will be right where I want to be.
I totally understand what you are saying regarding the straggly hair. I wanted a more blunt cut for overall health. I would rather have healthy ends than length anyways. BTW, your hair is very thick which I love and congrats on BSL!!!
