I’m taking better care of my hair these days. Hopefully I will be able to retain length, considering it grows only around 3 inches a year. 4 weeks ago
My hair has been long for some time, and im glad with it. 1 month ago
How I did it: Why I stated that this was one of the easiest yet hardest goals was because prior to cutting out with the scissors (see what I did there? lol) I couldn't stop doing things to my hair. Whether it was to cut it or dye it, I couldn't stop. It was like an evil habit that I couldn't break - I dyed it, hair became damaged, I cut it and the circle repeated itself. It stayed dyed, damaged and resting just above my breasts for what felt like forever.
But as my high school graduation came closer (class of 2013 wooo), I felt like I wanted my hair to look long for the big day. So I stopped cutting my hair as much, and only cut it when it was absolutely needed (which was like every 3rd or 4th month or so) and even then, I'd only cut a little. Given, my hair isn't supernatural and doesn't just grow like weed, so my hair length for my graduation day wasn't that long - just long enough to rest on 3/4 part of my breasts. It wasn't until after graduation where I decided to go back to my natural hair color (which is black fyi) that I started seeing some definite progress.
Fast-forward to November 2013 and even people around me started noticing and telling me my hair had grown long. And to think, just a year before (November 2012), I had cut my hair just below shoulder length and dyed it brown. It's now June 2014 and my hair is black and far below my breasts. Also, I don't have sideswept bangs anymore, which is a hairstyle I've been wearing for the past five years prior to growing my hair long. Instead, I've grown them out as well, and the result is actually pretty surprising to me (hence the :o-reaction). I look different, and I have to admit that I kind of like it.

I'm still, however, in the progress of growing my hair out (which is different from growing my hair long) since growing my hair long meant that I have a lot of dead hair that hasn't been cut yet. I'm still enjoying the long hair though, and I definitely recommend anyone who wants to try it out to do this.
It’s always messy when it’s a medium length. I decided to wash it less often so it won’t get so dry.. and not to use any hot tools because they just make my hair drier. Cheers :) 1 month ago
.. to this goal brush my hair really good from roots to bottom , and use a good conditioner after each bath to save it from damage . 2 months ago
So I think I can mark this as complete. My hair is longer than most peoples, though I don’t think I’m quite done growing it out. In February, I was in the Lion in Winter; a play taking place in 1183 England and I wore my hair long. Luckily I already had a head start since I’ve been growing my hair for about 2 years now. I recently got it trimmed. Down my back, my hair falls to just below my shoulder blades.
Every time I wear my hair down at work, the other girls I work with exclaim “Sarah! Your hair is so long!” 4 months ago
Don’t straighten it often. Keep it tied up when you can. Wash it only every second day. Don’t cut it until it splits! 5 months ago
