Hi Jen, maybe I missed it, but do you have a post or photo laying out where the length markers are on your body? Please bear with me, but how tall are you? When did you start your hair journey? I’ve read your past posts and saw you reached WL in 2012… is that your goal again now with your now relaxer-free hair? I ask all this because I’m trying to motivate myself length-wise. I want it all now but that’s not how life works. Uggghh!
Hi Mayah, here ya go, these are my hair markers. I’m 5’7″. This photo was taken on October 11, 2012 and I started my HHJ in March, 2009 at shoulder length. It just takes time and consistent healthy hair practices. You can do it!
I’ve mentioned this in other posts but it really is one of the “mantras” that helped me let go of my gimme-length-now mindset: focus on the health of your hair and the length will follow. At the moment I’m aiming to get to back waist length but once I’m back to that length I want to shoot for “w/hip” length (between waist and hip length)… Lord only knows how I’ll manage all that hair.
P.S. all my length check photos from 2009 to present are posted here 🙂
