Default Is everyone going to reach Mid back or waist length hair EVENTUALLY???

I am almost BSL now should be there in MAY(keeping my finger crossed)....But watching all you ladies with long full waist and mid back lengths makes me wonder.... you know I get anxious about my hair and feel like I will probably never have hair that long...so are we all destined to have hair that long...can everyones hair even grow that long....I know every persons hair on this forum is different and we all have different hair goals but ultimately I think we all want longer HEALTHIER hair!!!
It would be interesting to know if there are ladies on this board who actually did the best they can for YEARS and are still not at the length they want to be.....If there are please share!!

Well, not to be stuck up, but I want my waist length or midback and I think I can grow my hair that long.....I just have to stick to a regimen.....and stop using so many products, and I think if a black woman wants long hair she can grow long hair......just takes time and patience.....

No, Because not everyone wants it that long, I personally am only going to grow my hair to mid back just to see if I can, then chop it to full blunt APL and keep it like that, but we'll see I might just fall in love with it super long...

Default Re: Is everyone going to reach Mid back or waist length hair EVENTUALLY???

thats a good question. i've been trying to grow my hair for sooooooo long, i started thinking it was impossible. But since i've stopped relaxing,i think my hair can def grow much healthier. I've also stopped trimming so i can actually NOTICE growth. Im alittle worried that my relaxed ends might slow it down but i refuse to bc. i also hope it will get thicker as the natural hair takes over b/c although a V is cute, really thick ends are impressive to me. i hope hope hope i can make it and keep it a hip length sometime in my lifetime ASAP - lol. i think when i PERSONALLY make it after all the drama its been through, i will believe anyone can do it.

If they want it that long then yes everyone will be MBL eventually. If you believe it you can achieve it.

I think anyone who wants hair that long can grow it that long. Take care of it, and put the scissors down. There's no reason you can't. Half the people in my family have had WL before and they bunned, moisturized and didn't cut to achieve it. I'll never know if i can because i wouldn't want WL hair - i don't think it's fitting for me, but i love to see it on others!

I prefer to keep it real.

Not everyone is going to get it - even if they want it.

If you're willing to put in all the work and do everything right, it should grow. I've never had hair longer than it is now, and a part of me doesen't believe that it will ever be long, it's like I can't imagine it. But I'm gonna keep pushing and keep doing what I'm doing and see what happens.

What do you think is the minimum length someone can achieve?

Not trying to attack you or anything just curious.

I never wanted hair that long so I never thought about if it was possible, for me anyway.

hahaha..why you feel like that sis?

I think that anyone can have it if they let go of some of the things that they do to their hair. I don't think my hair would be this long if I had of continued to use heat all the time which resulted in having to trim more frequently therefore resulting in no retention. Hair is gonna grow regardless but retaining it is something else.

So what length do you think everyone can achieve if they take optimal care of their hair?

You've just got to do the best you can and grow as much as your genetics will allow. I think everyones hair will grow. Will everyone reach tailbone.....probably not. There are many factor that go into this. Genetics plays an important role. Also folks cut there hair a lot here "setbacks". Or they may get board and desire a spunky style. Someone like Flower hair for example has been growing her hair for over a decade and now she's tailbone. Slow and steady is my advice for maximizing the individual's genetics.

I just don't think everyone can get hair that long. point blank. I don't try to think too deeply about terminal length or minimum length or anything like that.

Genetics, environment, life changes, hormones, and so many other things have a lot to do with our skin, hair and bodies.

It is like saying that every woman that takes care of her skin to the ultimate degree will have flawless, blemish free, young looking skin. Not happening.

It is like saying the every person that eats clean and works out everyday is going to have the perfect body fat percentage.

I think there are many people that can get really long hair and they don’t realize it. But there are many that try, try, try, and try again – and never get it. Meanwhile they spend many years in protective styles, deep conditioning like there is no tomorrow, never combing their hair, not even letting their man run his finger through it. LOL

Honey Dew is right. It depends on how many years of growth your cycle is and how good your hair care habits are in helping you retain what you grow. I believe BSL is achievable for all. Other lengths, possible but not guaranteed.
