i like using HE tousle me softly finishing touch cream

how often do you wash your hair though? i find with this i need to shampoo once a week but rinse my hair like every 3days or it does start feeling a bit dry. i dont know if the hair is actually dry or if its product build up but if you do a nice rinse and start over then its a great gel

Well I did a quick length check and I'm firmly at MBL the sides and front has caught up w the back I did trim last month so I have a slight U shape insteadof the V shape my hair grows into naturally. Im now 2 inches from WL and 4 inches from HL the slightly longer parts.
I'm not setting an exact month to reach HL it will come when it comes.
I'm glad the bulk of my hair is all one length now. But I can't help thinking I could be HL now if it wasn't for the bkt setback and me having to aggressively self trim.
No more bandwagons no more switching products if I do someone throw that superslap smiley at me

HL is between WL and the start of your crakin, top of the hip bones where you put your hands to pose.

ETA: I would just keep the 1st set of hair band at the top then smooth the hair down and put another set of hairbands at the bottom that way there's less chance of messing it up.

I understand it's hard to claim that length unless you think you're full HL and even harder if you're not sure where it starts. That's my problem with WL the 1st time cuase where I thought WL was is really HL. I didn't claim it until others told me hey you're already there.

But once you reach TL or CKL :lol: crakin length then you'll be sure then to have passed full HL already.

From BSL to HL in 1 year, that's impressive. I'm counting before the trim. The pics really show your progress. Imagine what you can do in 2011. Don't cut yet just wait until it's closer to CKL. There's inspiration and hopw for us all.

AMAZING! I'm REALLY not cutting my hair after seeing your progress! You cut after a year and still maintained length. Just beautiful! Congrats you deserve it!

I realized why some of us have hair anorexia it's bc what you think the length is, is actually longer the actual place it is on yourself. Like WL is where your belly button is but no one including me thinks hat it really looks like true WL to have that look you have to go passed WL or HL. There may be a cure after all.

i think you're right... along with incorrect comparisons

like for instance i always compare my hair to domin, now my hair pales into comparison with hers yet she wont claim hl yet stating she is short. so i'm like "well if she's still short of hl than i'm WWWAAAAAYYYYYY off!!!" :lol:

ITA , don't compare your hair to others.
I know she's HL already and actually now approaching TL. Seriously, she needs to go ahead and claim HL already. :lol:

Wow look at all that growth! And to think you complained that this year that your hair wasn't growing. I think you're already hip length. You should post in the other hip length challenge and claim it. Don't let hair anorexia get you down! :lachen:
