MY LONG HAIR JOURNEY- PICS & STORY

Me Kissing My New Baby

Every-time I wear my hair down and go into public I am bombarded with lots of questions, comments and second glances because my hair is so long.

It is unusual to have real long hair these days. People are too busy and just don't want to mess with it ; along with all the short hair fads and styles it's just becoming a thing of the past.

As a little girl I had frizzy, short, stunted hair. I was like every other little girl with dreamy visions of myself with hair like Barbie or Rapunzel. I would get a towel or sheet and drape it over my head and act like it was my long hair.

My mother had a time fixing my little mop. To make matters worse, at three years I hid behind a dresser and chopped it in every wrong direction (This happened a few years before my long hair dreams obviously). My poor devastated mother did her best to cut it evenly then finally put in a tight curly perm.

Mom would trim the ends and my bangs until the age of five, then begin my journey to growing long hair. She actually prayed over my hair that it would grow so she could do something with it and because I wanted it long so bad.

Her prayers were answered at first slowly then progressed further. At around twelve years my hair was to the middle of my back. Of course I begin the fluffing and curling allot.

In my teens it had reached my waist, I begin taking hair vitamins. I still did allot hot curler styling, hair spraying ect. Those were the finding boyfriends days when frills were the thing.

At age sixteen ( almost seventeen) I graduated early from high school and married a few weeks later. My hair was now at the top of my hips.

By this time I had realized the importance of ditching the cheap shampoos and conditioners and using the more intensive moisturizing name brands. I also would do hot oil treatments and time soaking in conditioner. "Using hot curlers less contributed to more growth as well."

Before long I was expecting my first baby and begin taking prenatal vitamins. By the time she was born my hair had grew six more inches (to my upper thighs).

Then came baby number two ( three and a half years later). My hair grew three or four more inches.

In a ten year span I've had four children, my last one was born October 13, 2008. My hair is now around 5ft or a little over. I am 5ft 7in in height.

I am not sure it is the having babies or the way that I take care of it, but I have enjoyed my little girl dream of long hair.

It is a little difficult with kids sometimes so I just put it up in curls or some other updo style. Sometimes I just take half of it and twist it halfway up in a clip where it still looks long, but stays out of my way. I still wear it down allot with various styles or just hanging loose straight with nothing in it ( my husbands favorite way). I usually tie it up or braid it when I sleep.

http://hubpages.com/hub/How-To-Make-A-Stylish-Updo-With-Long-Hair

I wash my hair in the shower with a big handful of shampoo and conditioner. It takes around two hours to dry natural, that is how I usually dry it.

Sometimes I still even frill up and curl it all (that takes a while). I use Conair hot sticks and TRESemme hairspray extra hold as well as shampoo and conditioner in that brand. Though it is very important to change around on at least your conditioner or your hair becomes immune and your hair don't respond as well. I also like Pantene, aussies three minute miracle, St. Ives Intensive mint treatment and for a beautiful glossy shine I use LOREAL Paris VIVE PRO moisturising conditioner. " All these can be found at Wal-Mart or drugstore."

I am 27 now, very busy mommy of four and never plan to cut my hair. I get a kick out of kids I see that say, " Mommy, look at that lady with big hair!" or " Mommy, she looks like Wepunzel!" Lots of women say, " I could never mess with that long of hair!" To be honest I poured over myself more style frustrations when my hair was short and medium long than I do now, plus I save money on haircuts, coloring, perms ect. It's really not as bad as you think!http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-grow-long-hair

      wow beautiful hair. I have long hair (not that long of course, but want it that long now seeing yours) but it is very fine, very fine.

      I think stress and what not has hit my hair hard. Sometimes age takes a number on your hair depending on heredity in some cases.

      My hair grows very slow, however since I been taking gelatin and biotin, it seems to have some spunk. Coconut oil is also very good for your hair, but here very expensive. Biotin takes forever to work, if you don't stick to it, it defeats the purpose.

      Back in the day, ex. the bible days and so, not one woman had short hair, they all had natural long tresses. The reason being is virgin hair, they had no way of blow drying, curling, perming, or colouring that was not natural.

      Today a big factor in stunting the growth of hair is the fact of all the damage we do to our hair. When you do see a girl with long long hair today chances are its hair extensions.

      Do you plan on letting your daughters hair keep growing until she is old enough to make up her own mind?

      Bless you

      SO pretty! I am working on growing my hair out now. It was at my shoulders last fall and is now past mid back right now! I have not cut it since last fall and in January I became Apostolic Pentecostal have the conviction to not cut my hair ever again so I will let it grow as long as it will grow! Love your photos!

      Igneous333, that wasn't very nice. There are a lot of women who turn their noses up at very long hair - apparently, some woman posted here that singingmommy's hair is "nasty" and "dead." Many women consider women who wear their hair long for religious reasons to be "brainwashed" and "sad."

      I choose to wear my hair in a variety of styles and I have had fun coloring it on occasion and experimenting with various lengths, from shoulder blades to pixie cut and back again. I enjoy expressing myself through my personal style.

      I respect your choice to wear long hair and think very long hair can look very beautiful. It would be nice if you could respect my choice the same way I respect yours.

      Wow your hair is so long it's gorgeous I also as a child envisioned having luscious long hair. However my mother would always cut my hair as soon as it got past my hips because it became too much for her to manage. She would put my hair in a plait and I would get comments on my beautiful long plait whereever I went. But as a teen I was not happy with my long hair because I didn't fit in and at that age all you are worried about is; do I look attractive to the opposite sex? Yes haha but now with shoulder length hair I regret cutting it. I wish it was as long as my 'lovely plait' days...

      Absolutely beautiful. I think one problem nowadays is the fact that women have been taught (brainwashed?) in to thinking that their hair is like cosmetic jewelry. They just do all sorts of nasty things to their hair. It's sad to see teenagers coloring the hair at that age and when a woman sees that first gray hair the first thing they do is chop it all off and dye it orange. Yuck. Women don't seem to understand that their hair is just as alluring as any other part of their body. You often hear women say "it's just hair" as if it were something insignificant. Being attracted to long hair is no different than being attracted to big breasts. Men have cherished a woman's (long) hair for centuries and long hair has always been considered by men to be one of the most desired physical attributes. I remember high school and college. Girls with the longest hair always got the most attention. Well, enough of that. Take care of your hair and it's good to see that your significant other enjoys it as well. Good for you!

      As a former hairdresser, I have a wonderfully-cheap solution to tangly hair. It may not work for everyone, but try it on a small section of hair, first, to see. The acidity will close down the cuticle (the outer part of the hair). Making the cuticle close down good and tight makes for shinier hair which also shouldn't tangle. Tangles are generally caused by the cuticle (scales) sticking out and getting hooked onto each other. The acid rinse is helpful because most shampoos are highly alkaline and cause the cuticle to blow straight out. The acidity of the rinse pulls them down tight again to the hair cortex, where they can't catch on each other.

      For blondes--use lemon juice, and for darker hair use apple cidar vinegar. Cut either juice with water--use 1/3 cup lemon juice or vinegar to 2/3 cup warm water (distilled or soft water are preferable to hard water out of the tap). Rinse hair with it after rinsing out all traces of shampoo.

      There are pitifully few shampoos on the market that are worth buying, because most are highly alkaline. Even expensive shampoos generally are alkaline. That's why it's a very good idea to use an acid rinse as your final rinse--to restore the natural acid balance of your hair. This also goes for your skin, too.

      To be assured of having a gentle shampoo--make your from soapwort or soap nuts. Look online for recipies for making these shampoos and the ingredients. It may not be worth the effort, if you are very busy. However, your alternative, is to buy one of the very rare healthy shampoos on the market, and they definitely cost more. My daughter bought a coconut oil shampoo at Whole Foods Market, and it was wonderful. Just be careful that it doesn't contain the harsh extracts of coconuts that most cheap shampoos contain. Do some research to learn more. I don't have time to take for a more detailed answer. Anyway, good luck, and I hope the acid rinses help some of you.

      My hair got cut a lot when i went to the salon to get it trimmed. IDK if it was cause i had a lot of damage or she just didn't know i was trying to grow my hair. its in a weave now, idk if that's good or bad and idk how much my hair has actually grown it been a month but i have been doing whatever i can to make it grow. Idk why my hair hasn't been growing that much, well it as but i guess its falling out. its to my neck after i got it cut but i didn't get to see it that much cause after i got it cut my sister put a weave in it as soon as we got home. before it was on my back kinda but it wasn't very long. also my hair was curled when i got it cut so i don't know the exact legnth. when i was little i let my bunny out then i coudnt find it so i just left it out and went to sleep then it hopped onto the bed and it kept on eating my hair :(. But im 9 now i thinks my bunny chewed my hair when i was7

      I just found this site through a link. First of all, your hair is very beautiful. So glad you will not cut it. I just had 6 inches cut and have been upset about it. In 2001, my hair was knee length. I found an old video that I was in with my hair that long. I was so shocked it was me. I will never ever trim any more than 2 inches at a time. And I don't care what anyone thinks if I have long silver-gray hair to my knees when I'm old. If they don't like it they can lump it. When I have time I will read more about your hair care. Thank you for being an ispiration.

      I have virgin hair, never been cut. As a result it has been very long most of my life. It is perfectly straight and 12 feet long. I enjoy creating new styles of loops and braids. On special occasions, I let it all down and loose to show off. I will never cut it. Long hair is the ultimate female statement of fashion and sexuality. I also like having 2-3" nails and wearing mini dresses with 8" platform shoes.

      I've almost always had long hair, it was waist length until I was about 9 when my mother let me choose my hair cut. Guess what silly me did? UGH! But, it grew back out and I kept it a bit over shoulder length for many years. Then, when I was 20, a friend took me to a very high class salon, and the stylist talked me into cutting it quite short, with longer hair in the front, getting shorter towards the back...you know the look I'm sure. He was crazy. My face is really round. It looked awful. Finally, on New Year's eve 2000/2001, I got it trimmed and never looked back. But, this August 2010, it was half way down my thighs, and while I loved it, I've had multiple sclerosis since 2004 and just couldn't take care of it anymore, so I cut it up to about my lower back, so it's still long, but is about 2 feet shorter. I hope whoever gets that hair in their wig loves it as much as I did!

      Thanks for all the kind responses.

      To EMILY: my hair is not unhealthy,it is not stringy,dry and I don't have split ends. These pics don't really show what my hair is like, it is soft, conditioned and shiny and all 5ft. of it is alive so your nasty comment out of 100's of kind people is sure not going to make me cut it.

      It's kinda strange how theres people with fried looking hair from all the treatments they have, but because it's short nothing said, but even well-cared for long hair is automatically called nasty or dead.

      Sorry I haven't had a chance to reply to everyone individually.

      My husband does love my hair marseille, he would cry if I even thought of cutting it.

      Yes, the Locks of Love I know are trying to do a really nice thing, but I have had some people actually get on to me for allowing my hair to grow this long without donating it acting like I was selfish.

      I just do my best to keep a good attitude to all the negative. I am not intimidated though some people can be very cruel. The only people I've ever heard rude things directed to me about my hair was all women and they all were very bitter in attitude.

      Oh... I'm really jealous!

      I am 15, my hair REFUSES to grow long! It's hardly past my shoulders and it's curly (of fucking course)! My heritage is European/African... I want it so badly. I brush my hair with normal and bristle brush, I massage it well in the shower and rinse it out with cold water.

      But it's growing painfully slowly and some people may think it's silly but I've wanted it since I was really, really young. I'm not being ridiculous, it my secret pain...

      Don't know if I can help you in 2 months, that's very quick. However, massage your scalp, soak in conditioners, take the best vitamins offered at healthfood stores, eat healthy and don't heat, dye, perm or use much gels and sprays for a while, this will boost fast growth. You might take prenatal vitamins as well. The fastest my hair has ever grown was 6 inches in 9 months.

      When I was growing up my parents would never let my hair be cut, since I was a princess. To this day, it still remains uncut and is now 10 feet long. I just love my hair and will always let it grow.

      Great site, thank you for the information and it's great fun reading everyone's stories in the comments too. :)

      The longest I've ever had my hair is waist length after which the ends tend to dry very badly. I've had it cut short so many times and it just grows rather quick.

      Unfortunately, my hair is very curly, the corkscrew curls kind of curly, and even though i want it to appear long again, it never seems to! It's almost waist length now only when it's wet, but when dry it curls right up to just below my shoulders, so frustrating!

      I'd love thick flowing straight hair, but then, i've heard a lot of people want the opposite of their own hair type. ;P

      That is such a blessing! A woman's hair was given her for her covering and glory. I believe it's a blessing from God and may your life be longer than your every strain of your hair. God blessed you!

      Wow! Super long hair! I too always wanted the Barbie hair...I had it up until I was 10 years old...then, my mom chopped it off along with my sisters' into a "bowl" cut :( I got made fun of for looking like a boy...it was devastating to a little girl! I am now 35, just had my 1st child (beautiful little girl) and am now growing back my Barbie hair...so far it is just past my shoulders...would like it 1/2 way down my back. It is so true what you said - sometimes it is easier having long hair than shorter hair, you can always just throw it up in a ponytail, twist, etc...rather than having to style it daily...plus, I don't have to wash mine everyday because it is a little on the dry side. Can't wait for it to grow longer! I'm also going to let my daughter's hair grow and NOT cut it like my mom cut mine! lol Cheers!

      I really wish I had read this before haha, I started growing my hair around April, I have a bet with my mom to keep me from doing anything to it. I have a hard time leaving it go and not cutting it, anyway it's now at the middle of my back I started with it at my jaw line trying to let it get to my butt. I did a home perm right before I started growing it out and it's such a pain trying to undo the damage now I'm trying a home made natural relaxing and moistening treatment I really hope it works. You're advice helped a lot! I'm so excited to see the end result, Thanks a bunch!

      Hi! I used to have really long hair when I was a kid. I have been trying to grow my hair out since 2004. It is now about hip length. It is a lot thinner now than what it used to be. So what kind of leave ins do you use? What about detangler? You say it is important to switch conditioners - do you mean every time you wash your hair or you use a bottle and then buy a different kind the next time? any vitamin recommendations? thanks for any info! your hair is beautiful.

      My girlfriend has long hair (not so long as yours) and it is just enchanting to see. I love gals who have the courage to let it grow that way because men really do love it, but get to see it very rarely.

      Great Hub!

      a woman's hair is her crowning glory and her femininity...its beautiful. I remember the first time i saw long hair. I was a ballerina and this girl who was 18 took her hair down from a bun and it reached below her calves. It was so long and straight and beautiful red. I knew i wanted my hair that long one day.

      Your hair is beautiful!
