    What\'s the longest hair length you\'ve ever seen

    in real life?
    Very long hair is popular here on women of East Indian descent from more rural areas.So I'm not terribly shocked to see butt length hair.But today I saw a lady with her hair in a long braid and it was hitting the back of her knee.It looked awfully old fashioned to me [​IMG]
    I wonder if it would be even longer when unloosed.

    When I was about 10 years old there was a lady that had hair close to ankle length in my neighborhood.

    Re: What\'s the longest hair length you\'ve ever seen

    On a man - I saw a black guy this week with waist length hair. His hair looked very nice, and it was neat too.

    On a lady - I once saw a lady with knee length hair.

    [​IMG] Candi, if you had it that long, you'd probably keep it in a protective style (pun intended) most of the time, and only wear it down briefly to show or take pics. There's a picture showing how Diane Witt wore her hair in a protective style in this thread (sorry the first links seem to have died [​IMG] ) The picture I'm referring to is still there though...somewhere in the middle.

    The longest hair I've seen in real life was of an Asian lady and it was down to the back of her knees. But I do feast my eyes on pics of long hair quite often: Par example... An excellent website of extra long hair (more pics under each name) -- and don't forget the index on the left.

    True, but what's the point of having long hair if you never show it? When I get back to brastrap my hair will be OUT!

    Re: What\'s the longest hair length you\'ve ever seen

    I personally would rather see someone w/ hair THAT long with their hair up in a bun or something because to me, REALLY long hair (knee length, ankle length, etc.) just SCREAMS PWT! Sorry, but I don't recall EVER seeing someone w/ hair to that extent look good! It always looks raggedy and Crystal Gale-ish! Sorry! And I have seen some pretty women like that, but the hair just does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for them, just hanging there like that, looking unhealthy. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Re: What\'s the longest hair length you\'ve ever seen

    I have a coworker who's hair is past her butt (she can and has sat on it). Sorry...hair that long isn't for me. I think bra strap is it for me, that's my goal.

    Re: What\'s the longest hair length you\'ve ever seen

    true enough, there's a girl who lives down the street from me whose hair is down to her knees (she's only 15), it's all scraggly and what not at the ends because she refuses to cut it. wears her hair up almost all of the time but it looks like it weighs her little head down.

    Re: What\'s the longest hair length you\'ve ever seen

    The longest I've seen was a co-worker with hair past her butt. I could tell she was taking very good care of it though because it sure was beautiful and her hair attracted a lot of positive attention wherever she went. She wore it loose most of the time.

    I saw a black lady on the Metro in D.C. with dreads down to her behind. I hope I don't offend anyone but it looked so dirty.

    Re: What\'s the longest hair length you\'ve ever seen

    on a man: knee length hair in a thick braid

    on a woman: trailing on the floor a few feet behind her

    I wonder what's the point of taking care of your hair so it can grow long and then turning around and shredding it all over the side walk???

    Re: What\'s the longest hair length you\'ve ever seen

    I had a friend in Trinidad who was half chinese half East indian she had hair down to her ankles and it was thick too ... she hated it but her dad would not let her cut it .
    she had to wash her hair in a tub one side at a time because it was really thick too each of her two ribboned braids were about 3 1/2 inches thick and the strands were thick and coarse too.
    I wonder what ever happened to her.?I bet all of htat hair is gone though.
    she use to put coconut oil in her hair every day like most old fashioned people of indian decent and it smelled rancid because in Trinidad you make your own coconut oil and the smell is powerful..
