Yes! I did it! I'm a bit hesitant about claiming it due to fear of the Hair Police , but eff 'em. Nothing can dull my shine today! I BCed in late August 2006. Here's a pic of my flat ironed hair from last night. It's just barely Hip Length, but it's there! And it will only get longer. I am so happy! I can't wait to reach Tailbone! I owe my length to the knowledge I've gained here eta: Ack! I tried to delete that ugly BC pic but the mean ole computer won't let me!!!!!!!!
