Really I'm on a roll!! :)
So I used to have really long hair. Really long. Here is an example:
This is me when I was 9. (HOLY CRAP!! 10 FREAKING YEARS AGO!!! I'm so old.) But ya. This is my hair when I was younger. It was at least this long as long as I could remember...forever really!
Then when I was in 7th grade I cut it. OFF. Like cheek bones. And I have had it short ever since. I liked it short. It was fun and spunky and curly and fantastic. But, I couldn't do anything with it. Down. Ponytail. Bun. That's all I got. At first this didn't bug me. Long hair is such a hassle! And all I had to do was comb it, put gel in it, and DONE! It was fantastic.
Anyway fast forward to June last year. I had been debating whether I wanted to grow it out or if I wanted to leave it. I had been wishing I could do more with my hair, but I am impatient (another thing that I am working on) and if I was going to grow it out, I just wanted it to be long after like.... a week! But alas that is not realistic. :P
So ya I was in this weird place of indecision. Then on that one day in June, my decision was made. That day was when I went and saw Brave!
I mean LOOK at that hair!! That is what my hair looks like when it is fabulous and long. After I saw that movie I promised that I wouldn't cut my hair until it was long. And I can proudly say that I haven't. And man it has grown.
Here is what my hair looked like the day that I decided to grow my hair out.
Now this is what it looks like today (well not actually this very day, but this month....my hair is currently up in a cute up-do. Thank you pinterest!)
This is me on my 19th birthday!! And yes with my gorgeous mother again! :) My hair is now resting on my shoulders! From cheekbones to shoulders in.....9 months. (sorry had to do the math in my head! haha) Ya. I don't really have a special trick. I took biotin for a month-ish. A lot of people told me that it helps, but I didn't take it long enough to know the difference. (I kept forgetting to take it!) I guess just stay healthy and keep your hair healthy.
So ya. My hair goal is under way. Another 6 months to a year, and it should be where I want it. Oh and I need to get it layered....oh time. Anyway, loving it so far!
Keep you posted on its progression. :)
