    When I was in my teens I had really long hair.

    In my early 20's I donated it to locks of love. 18 inches of fine silky hair. I've kept it short since then. After many discussions with my wife about it, I have decided to grow it back out. For now I'm just going to let it get about 5-6 inches and see how I feel from there.

    lol Thing about it is, it started off as a good dream. Don't you hate those? Anyway, it started off with me and the bros jamming at Coachella, dreads flyin everywhere. Music, drinks all around, the crew's having a good time, in short, paradise. The event ends and we pack up...

    Easier To Twirl

    I have had my hair short for way too long and now, it's time for a change. Usually, when I grow my hair, I get annoyed with it and eventually, it comes off. Though my husband just loves my hair and besides, I love when I can twirl it around my finger!

    Okay, this one's a question to all the ladies

    with long hair. (and long haired men I guess) Whenever I wash my hair I lose massive amounts of it, it's legit scary, yeah I'm a diva. Whenever I look at my hands whenever I'm washing it I've just got tons and tons of hair, hair that was previously on my scalp. Is this normal...

    Because of my work regulations in the 70's I

    couldn't have long hair so Pixie cuts every 6 weeks was the norm until policy was changed the hair growth started but about 10 years ago I went to donate, Locks of Love, and gave stylist instructions but she gave me an asymmetric cut so back to growing again.

    I have very long hair.

    . Except I kind of lacked a bit of impulse-control and started shaving my head. I stopped, but not before I lost about an inch. I'm trying my best to grow it out into bangs. Taking biotin 10,000 twice a day. I think I've grow back about half an inch since the episode in March...

    I Love It

    I really love my long hair and in addition to my beard it keeps me warm like nothing else. When I'm bored I have something to play with and recently a girl asked me if she could make me some braids, I refused, I mean headbanging with braids, how should that work?

    Doing Good

    I am 26 and I have donated my hair twice so far to locks of love. I am now growing it out now for my third donation. This time after I donate it I'm going to cut my hair the shortest I've ever had it. A nice feminine sexy pixie cut.

    This is my first attempt to grow my hair long.

    Since childhood I have always had a short hair. My excuse was that I wasn't very good at maintaining a long hair but now I feel like I want to grow them long. I am curious if that will make me look too mature. It's an experiment so let's see how pleased I am with the result.

    I am indeed growing my hair long :P I think

    that longer hair is pretty and my hair is one of three things that I partially like about me. So growing it out and having long pretty hair would make me feel a bit better. My hair is just about mid back right now, I think I wanna get it down to my bum. So yea

    and women should have short hair :/ she even cut it in my sleep when I was little. Even my mom kept my hair short until I was about 12, then I started growing it long. It's mid back length now and I'm trying to grow it to my waist or longer, but I'm not sure if my family will...

    My hair is about shoulder length

    when straight. I'm trying to grow it about hip length when it's curly since I'm trying to straighten it less. I've been taking biotin and using only Dominican hair products.

    was long until I started going to beauticians...I believe they like to trim more than what they should cut off which is why now I am going to learn how to do my own hair and limit my time going to the salon they cost to much money anyway, This summer I have had tried a product...
