Hair Tracker Part 20: November 2016

Hi everyone!

Wow, busy times. I had meant to post a little while back for October, but life got in the way. So, I thought I'd update with my current hair length!

Left- August 2016 at 39.5"
Right- November 2016 at 40.5"

I'm now at 40.5"! Which was my original hair goal for 2016! Hooray!

I've been trimming to keep a blunt hemline, which I prefer as I do not have particularly thick hair. This helps give the illusion of having thick hair, and as a bonus, my braids are less messy and don't have as many little stray hairs sticking up everywhere.

You guys may also notice a demarcation line in both of those pictures. Wonder what that's from? Last year, I did a hair experiment to try and bleach over some henna that had gone too burgundy. As you can see...well, it worked- that's for sure! ;) Check out that post here, if you're interested!

So where am I growing now? Classic length, which, on me, is about 43"

Until next time!

    1. JJJ, that is so kind of you to say, thank you! That means a lot to me!! I really love your your pictures and hairstyles- they are so gorgeous and creative!!

  2. Your hair is beautiful! I love the color as well.
    What haircutting method do you use? The Feye method?
    I try to get rid of my layers, over time, and I really like your slightly curved blunt hemline.

    1. Hi Krullen, thank you so much for your nice comment!
      I used to use the Feye method up until really recently. It was how I always did my hemline cuts until my hair has become so long that it's kind of tricky. So, I have been experimenting with a Crea Clip to try to get a straight hemline. I think my hair has an inclination to grow in a soft-U shape naturally, even when I've kept it as straight as I can!

      Hope that helps!

    2. Thank you so much for replying! Maybe you could do a selftrimming tutorial for us one day?

  3. Beautiful hair, do you now have a new goal length ?

    1. Hi! Thank you for your nice comment!
      I'm fairly close to reaching classic- probably about 5-6 months away! Actually, I had never thought my hair would have been able to grow this long! I had always had hip length (34") as my 'ultimate' goal length, but here I am well past it!

      I think after I reach classic, if I decide I'd like to keep growing, I would like to see how I like my hair at about mid-thigh length.
