Haha Thank you! I've been growing it out for like 9 years now, my hubby's grown his hair out this year too and I swear he is worse than a girl. Most couples fight over finances and children, we fight over hair products and, "Where did you put my brush?!" It's fun though, it lets me feel all fairy tail princess sometimes.
rofl Do you happen to be on the Long Hair Community Forum? That's very much the kinda situation you hear over there! And if you're not, you totally should because they have a lot of useful tips and tricks Brilliant that he's jumping on the longhair train, there aren't enough men with long hair ^^
How long is your hair when you stretch it out? I can imagine those curls eating a lot of length.
There's a forum for long hair? o.O Great, my husband will be all over that! He's the one that does all the research in how to care for it and what products to use ect. I just grow it, brush it, gel it. But I will take a look, I've been trying to find some different ways to style it, without cutting it, of course.
Its at the base of my spin stretched out. At least the longest point is, it's kind of in layers in a U shape since I don't like the straight across look. Back in January though, I went for a trim and some layers and I didn't like what the girl did. She went in and would grab a small chunk and then cut down the length of the section and said this was the best way to layer curls. Which she was probably right, because I go to a professional high end place (since I only get it cut once in a while I don't mind the price! lol) She said it would make it fuller but it actually make it thinner and I don't like it. Gaaa, I hate how 9 years of growth can be messed up in 30 minutes. But it's ok, it'll always grow back.
Indeed there is - it's a super nice community too, loads of articles for things like oiling, avoiding damage, different updos and things. I'm currently dying with henna, and washing conditioner only as well as taking biotin suppliments and multivitamins and generally treating my hair as well as I can, and despite all the stress of surgery after breaking my shoulder and so on, I've still had quite a lot of strong growth coming through. Because your hair is so long, there's tonnes of options for updos - in the articles section there's a lot of ideas, and someone called TorrinPage I think it is on youtube is very good to watch. And if you post on the Mane forum saying you're new and asking for ideas, people will be more than happy to point you in the direction of good tutorials for your hair length and type (and you'd get a lot of compliments because curly hair is never fast/easy to grow!).
Like, tail bone length? That sounds about right anyway That's really impressive x_x Oh gosh, hair dressers are nightmares to go to... There's lots of people on the forum who've resorted to trimming their own hair because of a bad hairdresser experience. But that method of cutting does not sound good for any hair O.o jeez... Layers are not fun to grow out x_x If you're interested in trimming yourself instead, there's loads of tips for that on the forum too. I haven't trimmed mine since November, but I much prefer doing it myself. Cheaper, and you can be sure you won't end up with them taking too much length off ^^
