Default The person with the longest hair in my family is _______________ length.

All right ladies, it's Friday and a cold, snowy 19 degrees...(Denver weather of course!)



Let's have some fun!

All we have to do is fill in the blank. I guess this is a play on the "genes vs. care" theory in terms of how long we can expect our hair to grow.






If YOU have the longest hair in your family, has it always been that way?





OK - I would say that the person with the longest hair in my family is me. My hair effortlessly grows between a full SL ---> APL. I have been the one with the longest hair in my family for the longest, but my sister (who has NEVER had long hair) is gaining on me since LHCF!

ETA: I am expecting to grow my hair to MBL.

Your turn!

My 10 year old daughter has the longest hair in my immediate family. When lightly straightened it reaches to her waist.

Hey sister

The person with the longest hair in my family is probably my father's youngest sister who's hair is APL when stretched.

I probably have the longest hair in the family, even after my cut. Honestly, all of my father's sisters have healthy looking hair because their mother was a cosmetologist, but I never seen them with hair longer than shoulder length/armpit length.

ETA: I don't know about any of the kids in my family. I don't see them but I don't think their hair is long either, maybe 1.

Default Re: The person with the longest hair in my family is _______________ length.

The person with the longest hair in my family is my great aunt its at her waist. Although most of the women in my family (dads side) have pretty lenghty hair...unless they've cut it. My dad always jokes with me and says that if it wasn't for the length of my hair when I was younger he'd swear I wasn't his child. I don't have that "good grade" of hair not bad but not like his and my moms is pretty decent too....I don't know what happened.

My greatgrandmother had waistlength hair.
My grandmother burnt her hair off, and is 50% bald.
My mother has slightly below shoulder length dreadlocks.

I suspect I'll have the longest hair in the family, as moms keeps hers trimmed.

Don't you love the Denver snow?

My cousins. She's 14 maybe and my uncle said its MBL. She lives in Vegas.
But for those of us in Denver, I guess its me. My mom and aunt both prefer short styles. When my mom was growing her hair out, it never got past barely grazing her shoulder and she gets her hair done faithfully every week.

ETA: They all (my Grandpa and Uncle included) had past shoulder length when they were rockin curls ).

My eldest sister. Right now her hair is close to APL.

All of us have always had shorter hair (SL or above). I don't think any of us ever TRIED to grow our hair. We all pretty much kept short cuts.

I think the person witht he longest hair in my family is me. Mine is about apl now. I've always had the longest hair, especially when i was younger and had mbl hair. My mom has always liked the look of long hair, annd always took care of my hair so it wasn't a choice.

"The Person with the longest hair in my family is... ME actually!"

I'm sorry...I just couldn't resist!

But *ahem*...seriously-speaking, at this moment I do have the longest hair in my family. I'm a little longer than shoulder-length. But before the LHCF, I think my sister had a wee bit longer and probably thicker hair than I did.

My mom usually keeps her hair short, so I'm not exactly sure how long her hair can grow. And back in high school and college she wore an Afro so....

But I think the LHCF has definitely helped me in my hair length and acheivements. I've seen my hair surpass friends hair who always used to brag about how "long" their hair was, and would always like to show off. Well...guess what?? Now that my hair is longer than theirs, and is thriving...all of a sudden they don't bring up the "hair topic" anymore. Hmm....gee, wonder what changed?

In my immediate family (dh and the kids) dh and oldest dd have the longest. They're both bra strap when stretched. Dd may even be MBL

In my other family (mom, sisters, aunts, uncles) the person with the longest hair is my youngest sister, whose hair is about APL. It used to be bra strap, but she doesn't take care of it

Default Re: The person with the longest hair in my family is _______________ length.

The person with the longest hair in my family is me. The pic in my avatar is from July, but I'm almost BSL now. I say I probably have about 1/2" more to go, but that's before my trim in Jan. After that I'll probably be 1" to 1-1/2" to go before I'm BSL (I want nice ends when I get there ). It's hard to say, depending on if my stylists is having one of those SHS days . I hope not . I'll decide whether she's in a good mood that day before asking for a trim .

this whole paragraph had me laughing cause i can so relate. Do we have the same friends? Now all of a sudden they wanna start "seriously" taking care of their hair so it can get longer. The whole time i'm thinking with a smirk on my face: "well well well, i wonder what brought this on".

Two of my adult daughters have BSL hair. One takes great care of her hair and the other just yanks it up in a wet ponytail on top of her head everyday. Go figure...
