I am. In decemeber I plan on doing a blunt cut at WL. whatever hairs are passing WL at that time will be cut. Anything less than Wl will not be touched. I just want to even things out. And make it a little more uniform and move on to Whip length from there

Thanks! I'm MBL now and 2 inches from WL So if I make WL in December I'll cut back to MBL and go to Whip from there. IDK so many options. I may just dust monthly and blunt cut at HL! final decision maybe. LOL

My plan is to cut probably to WL or maybe in a "U" no shorter than WL in Dec. I haven't trimmed since 10/9 so the ends are uneven although healthy. That's the rub--the ends are split-free and in good condition so I'm unsure. And I hardly wear it straight so no one can really see if it's uneven or not. Hummm...

IKR! If the ends were split it's a no brainer but since they aren't and I either bun or rollerset anyway why blunt cut it?

Thanks @constance and @mEmYSELFaNDj for venting with me!

I know. I'm 70/30 on leaving it alone and, really, the idea of trimming is too upsetting. Like my hair would be bleeding. Totally obsessed, I know. (What does "IKR" mean?)

I actually want to start wearing my hair straight more often, maybe once a month or every other month in 2012, so I do want to get it all evened out, get rid of some knots and the few splits I may have. Plus I havent trimmed since Dec 2008, so I'd say im due. lol

This seems like a cool challenge. Not sure if I should join, just here to support. I'm so glad that some of you ladies have decided to surpass WL. Nice to see other ladies besides myself who want beyond WL hair.

LOL thats so funny, for some reason I get that a lot. But I dont see it . But I'll take it tho . hehe

And as far as trimming, or actually not trimming goes, I just dont do it! Started my hair journey in mid 2009 doing back to back weave installs for a little over a year, so basically 100% protective styles, so that way I was able to retain everything without my ends being too damaged, if at all. In the last year I've been wearing my hair out more often which is starting to take a little toll on my ends and I want to even out my natural layers because my crown grows slower than the nape, which is why I have decided to do the trim in Dec.

Long story short: Key to keeping hair on your head without trimming is Low to No Manipulation Protective styles, oh and moisture moisture moisture.

List your Reggie
I'm relaxing tomorrow, so I'm figuring it out as I go. Possibly:
-Wash 1x a week with sulfate free shampoo
-Co-wash 1x a week with cheap conditioner
-Moisturize daily
-Wear a bun as a protective style

# of inches til whip or hip length
Not sure, my natural hair stretched is MBL, but I may have to trim.

C) Tell us your LHCF HL goal idol
I have no idea, there to many.

I'm going to post pics tomorrow after I've relaxed and trimmed.

I'm not planning a blunt cut until HL or just passed. Chasing blunt ends is what set me back length wise in the first place so I'm leaving my ends alone an continue to dust and S&D my ends when needed. I just dusted this week so I'm done for at least 2-3 months.

It's not too late join. WELCOME!

@Lucia thanks for that advice. I'm convinced to continue my dusting and stop chasing blunt ends. It's good to know I'm not alone. Blunt at hip sounds yummy

Ok so I still have not done an official length check. I'm trying to wait as long as I can. So I don't have an length check pic yet

A) List your Reggie
~Wash once a week (for now)
~Deep condition once a week
~Henna once a month
~Protein treatment once a month (to restore curl because henna loosens them)
~PS most of the time & if I wear my hair out, it's on the weekends

B) # of inches til whip or hip length
Not sure yet...hope not far!

C) Tell us your LHCF HL goal inspiration
All the ladies with healthy WL or longer hair

I have slacked off a bit on the hair regimen due to being pregnant and tired. I have heard that you can really get a growth spurt with all the extra hormones, so I am tired but ready to take my hair to new lengths. Did anyone have a lot of growth during pregnancy or is that just a myth? Loving all the beautiful hair I see on this thread
