How old were u when u decided 2 grow ur hair long?
Oct 31st, 2006 at 2:48pm
 
I was 22 this year when i found long hair boards, if it had not been for baords like this i would stil be fighting with my hair. I just want to thank you all as i have had so many tears cryed over my hair from bad colour to bad cuts and now i never have to worry again.


Not only have i gone natural with my hair but also my skin and makeup to i feel so great to be free from the influential media of this world and just be me.

Thank you all

Welcome to the au natural crowd!   Grin

I've grown my hair long (at least mid back) 3 different times, once starting when I went to college.  That lastest until I was pregnant with my son.  The second time was after my first back surgery... that time I only grew it to mid back, then cut it back to a pixie.  And now my 3rd (and final) time.  I started growing my hair out after a bad cut and a forced change in hair sylist.  I figure I'll leave it long for as long as I still enjoy having it long.  If/when I decide I am ready to cut my hair this time, I will again cut it very short and I am sure it will stay that way.  However, I have no real plans to make that drastic move yet.  Wink

Although I have wanted long hair since the Beatles, I didn't possess the, um, backbone until I was 31. Three women in my life over the years didn't approve.

First, of course. Mom. I, at least, successfully negotiated a compromise for over-the-ears, collar-length.

Second was, my (then) wife. She was a hairstylist with other ideas.

A girlfriend ('89-91) believed long hair was for rock stars. I started my quest for long locks the day she dumped me.

Since then, I have been in relationships that not only appreciated my look but discouraged me from cutting on several occasions. I did buzz it once (2000); just wanted a different look. Short hair didn't feel or look like me, though. A couple weeks later, I started over.

The most recent time that I "decided" to grow my hair long was after a terrible colouring accident when I was 20. During the week between my wedding and honeymoon, I decided to take my natural waist-length, light brown locks to deep raven black using a Level 2 (demipermanent) hair colour. But when the colour took permanently, I had the length cut off to my shoulders, then slowly grew and cut the last of the coloured part out.

It was then that I decided to 1.) NEVER colour my hair again, and 2.) to take much better care of it while it grew back out. So it wasn't so much a decision to grow my hair long as a commitment to reclaim the long hair that I once had. Slowly but surely, it's coming along...  Undecided

Ummm, is this the third or fourth time???  Anyway, I can't remember exactly anymore.  This time I started about 2 years ago.  First year when very slowly as I had regular trims to get most of the layers out.  That would have put me about 47.

First time I was 17, and off to college... cut it when I got married at 20.  Next time I was 28, cut it after birth of my last child at 33.  This time I was 55, and I'm not cutting!

I was 9, I think.  I started with growing the length out but kept my bangs short.  I later decided to grow out my bangs so I could have my hair all one length.  I had to cut my hair to shoulder length at 12 (when my bangs had reached my shoulders), so I could grow it all out together, and I haven't looked back.   Smiley

When I was fourteen. And now I'm fifteen.  Grin
But I've had pretty long (and much...) hair since I was about 9 or something; my mom thinks my quest for hiplenght is a way of compensating for having reaaaaally little hair when I was very-very-very widdle.  Cheesy

After getting my hair cut short every summer for camp, I decided around 12 years old to have long hair. By my hs graduation it was almost to my waist. I kept it long until the second child, then cut it short again. I haven't cut it short since then, about 24 years. I have my hairdresser trim it about every 3-4 months (maybe 1/2 an inch). Both my grandmothers had really long hair. I don't plan to cut it ever!

I've had my hair long, short, and every length in between.  I really can't remember.  I do remember at some point in my mid-20's noticing that my hair had reached the middle of my back, but it wasn't a deliberate choice.

This is the first time I have "chosen" to grow my hair long, and I made it in February of 2005 when I was 40.  I am almost to BSL now, and only have a few inches to go to surpass the length I had before.

I was 25 when I started to grow. This is my first time. When I was a kid, my hair was about BSL length- it just would not grow longer (due to bad haircare). When I was 16, my stylist convinced me to chop it all off, and for the next decare, my hair was of different lengths of shortish- pixie most of the time, but also bald, and a couple of times barely shoulder length.
    When I turned 25, I decided that I didn't want to follow my "bald in the summer, let grow during the winter"-cycle but wanted to have long hair when I hit 30. My idea of "long" was BSL-ish, as I thought it might not grow longer. So, I started to grow, totally ignorant of finesses of longhair care. When I found this board, my hair had made it a bit past shoulder length again.
    I love having long hair- I think I've got short cuts out of my system for good.

What is BSL???  I guess from reading all of your posts..that deciding to grow it long at age 38 isn't impossible!!?? I want it to be long enough that it kind of covers my boobs..I think that would be the mid to lower back area??

Hi Peachygirl!  BSL  Means bra strap length.  Growing your hair at 38 is not impossible, thats when I started! Now I'm 40 with 25 1/2 inch hair, of which is not quite boob covering yet Roll Eyes
