Gorgeous hair,
Don't cut so fast try wearing it in ponytails or buns for a while until the "itch" passes. our hair is healthy and thick the ends look great there really is no need to cut.

Yes I know what you mean the self-sabotage thing is real and people don't think that you could do that to yourself once you come close to or reach a dream length. I think wait it out and you'll see that the urge passes, just remember how much work and care you put into getting you new length. Once you beat the urge the first time you'll be able to beat the urge if it ever comes back-trust me I've been there. HTH

I'd like to be added . No chance of achieving this before LATE in the year but since I'm almost at full waist now I think I can do it. This thread will remind me and be my incentive not to trim when I think my ends are getting thin unless there's major damage.

i said i was going to trim a .5 inch but I'm going to try trim an inch this weekend or early next week and then go ahead and do two in june.


@Janet' and @NJoy
I hope it is okay that one pic is a bun and the other is only half a pic. oops



@brg240 i get a lot of ssk's too...AND i (used) to wear wash-n-go's a lot. how are you going to style and wear your hair on a daily basis in order to prevent ssk's?

Girl, your hair is beautiful. Nobody's gonna cosign cutting so, I'm gonna get with the consensus and say bun that gorgeous hair til that urge passes. Thick and healthy? Shoooooot. Back aWAY from the scissors and thoughts of it, girl.

Oh, and feel free to post more pics...more often. Love seeing your hair!

Thanks! I am happy it is very healthy. What annoys me though is the lead hairs. The picture below is pre-relaxer in late January of this year.



Once relaxed back then of course there was more length (siggy pic), but I just dislike the lead hairs being see-thru, and have been thinking of cutting to about two inches past where the line is, it would be further down in length now since this is an older pic.

I feel like I now have about 6 inches of lead hairs, but they are thickening at the ends. Not sure if cutting 6 inches of lead hairs would classify as a cut or trim...I just want more uniformity, but it might set me back on my "hip length" timeline.

The irony is that in my siggy pic, after the relaxer back in January...my hair looks as if its been trimmed...it hadn't.

I guess when I relax later today or tomorrow morning, I'll view the progress and go from there.

Mixing up my henna for tonight. Indigo in the morning. Finally. I have grays sneaking up in my hairline thinking they're unchecked. Naaaah. I'm on it!

@brg240 Gotta say it again! Your hair is gor-or-or-jus!!! Gotta have a talk with my hair to see if it will agree to look like THAT!

Hey you guys, I have to do a product rave. I am so happy. I was watching the glamtwinz youtube video the other day, they seemed to have hair like mine and one of the items they are using to flat iron is a gloss serum. I've never used one of those while doing my hair so I thought I'd give it a try. I bought Smoothing Shea Butter by Organix. Now, just some background, I have hair that loves, loves, loves to be tangled. Even when I would get it straightened at the salon, bone straight, if I would leave it out for 5 minutes it would be full of tangles. Well, after using this product I don't get any tangles. It's amazing. I was just out all night, with my hair down and then later in a side ponytail, and my comb caught just barely 2x. 2!! Around my whole head. I just can't believe it. I'm so happy I had to come in and tell you guys.

@SHEANITPRO
I completely understand where you're coming from. Its up to you if you want to cut it, but I find that my hair eventually catches up with the rest of the lead hairs. Or maybe just continue wearing the ends curly to disguise the lead hairs. Beautiful hair either way!!!!!

I was going to do my hair today for my anniversary, but its now raining. Not only that, but its going to rain ALL !#$@$ week. Ugh. I might rollerset anyway. We'll see.
I don't think my hair has grown that much since the last length check.

Did my first wet bun today. I'm really liking buns as an easy protective style. The wet bun was nice and very easy to do, but my hair is not dry in the middle. I don't want to have to take it down every night and redo it in the morning because I think that would be too much manipulation. Does anyone know if it's ok to let it stay wet? For how long?

Here are a couple of pics of my bun. The frizzy part in the front is from where my edges are growing back after some PP shedding. I wear a headband to cover it, but I had taken it down already.
