    There should exist some kind of magic growth

    for people with obstinate hair that refuse to grow. Like moi! Over a year ago I had cut my hair really short out of frustration. That is, right up to my hair line. Now that it's grown out a little I wonder what was wrong with me to do such a thing. So now my hair needs trimming...

    It already is long. It's about waist length.

    It was down past my butt crack before I cut it. I might let it grow out to my hips, but not as much as before? Not sure.

    I already have long hair,

    but I really want to grow it longer. My first goal is knee length hair. It now reaches to my tailbone (half an inch higher, maybe). But knee length hair will be awesome!

    I have always had a fade,

    but now I want to grow out my hair. My hair is really thick. If I let it grow I don't think I will ever cut it again.

    Ideally, this is what I'd do.

    I'd grow it out really long. And by really long I mean mid-back. I went natural though and at first getting it to be long was my primary goal but I realize hair is truly just an accessory and now I'm more focused on keeping it healthy. It's growing thicker more than anything. As...

    Usually would grow it down to my waist.

    It looks nice, but can be a bit hard to manage when it is that long.

    Its currently nearly an inch from 21

    which is just above my Coccyx, but I want it longer. Due to my family history, women have grown it to their waists and beyond, so hopefully it will happen for me too. I'll just have to avoid color, heating tools, and rubber bands lol Wish me luck xox

    I've always wanted to have long hair,

    and now it's right about touching my clavicles. My short-term goal is to let it grow past armpit length, and if I like it, I'll grow it even longer!
