My Long Hair

My hair just barely touches the top of my knee now. I'm so happy! So I decided that I needed to take some current hair pictures. :aww: When I was putting these together it struck me that they look like bookmarks, lol! no I'm not so vain as to start selling bookmarks of my hair, ....but I am immensely pleased. I've finally reached the shortest end of my dream length! :D

I wish your long hair dreams all come true and the hair will give you a lot of joy.:) (Smile) It's nice to have a look at your hair.
Hello, what a beautiful hair. I would hope to live close to you, because I could help you with all that very long hair. For cares and all ... but unfortunately we are too far. However felicitations for your hair, I LOVE it very much. I hope you will maintain it that lenght, not cut it, and even let it grow more, of course if it will grow so ... do you look like a Princess

aww....  Mine seemed to stop growing once it reached waist length for a number of years, then somehow started growing again.  It's definitely been a slow process.  I've read that humid climates are good for hair growth and I feel like I have noticed that since moving from california to oregon.  Other than that, umm... I trim it myself maybe once or twice a year, if I'm bored I'll clip individual split ends with a nail clipper, I comb it mainly just with my hands rather than a brush because I feel like I can be gentler and also better at distributing the natural oils, if I do use a brush it's a boar bristle one, I keep it in a braid a lot of the time to prevent it from getting tangled.  I suppose nutrition probably influences hair growth, though I don't really pay that much attention to it though I'm not a huge junk-food person, and I imagine genetics is also involved which obviously there's not much one can do about. If you haven't already you might check out which has a community of people dedicated to growing out and taking care of their hair. I think I recall they had haircare guides as well as members who share their own tips and tricks.  I haven't been on there in years, but I recall it being a good site.

I did not know that website (English is not my native language) go to visit now!
I also believe that genetics should be important to all our hair grows at different rates.
I had a very strong anorexia so my body is almost empty of vitamins and that, I will improve my diet to see if I notice any difference, thanks for your tips! :)

Wow, so pretty!  I am glad I am not the only one trying to grow out my hair.  I would have never cut it, but my dad never like long hair on me.  Now that I don't live with dad, I can grow my hair till it reaches the floor ^_^  Good luck with your lovely hair.

-touches my hair- my hair is to my chin ;_; i told my dad to cut it just above my shoulder (it was to the bottom of my shoulder blades- but he cuts it like a bob -_- I'm scared my hair won't grow a bit in time for graduation! Any tips?
aelthwyn's avatar
my hair grows pretty slowly, so I can't say I have any fast growing tips other than that it seeems like it grows a little faster in humid/rainy climates - though that's not something easy to control.

I could always try mane and tail shampoo...

I love love love love love love love LOVE your hair! What's your secret?
aelthwyn's avatar
haha, thank you so much :aww:, I don't really do that much, it's just been many years of letting it grow out.  I have found that living in a damp climate seems to help it grow better, and I usually detangle/brush it with my fingers instead of a brush because I feel like I'm able to prevent ripping it and it seems to help distribute the oils from the top down to the bottom better.
