The "Natural Section" has a thread that asks, "Why'd you want to go natural?" So I figured that the growth section should have a thread similar to that one too.. :)

Well, when I found the boards at SL, I thought my hair WAS long. But when I saw the long-haired Divas, I wanted to know what it would feel like to rock long tresses too.  But honestly, I thought MBL would do it.  But after getting there, it didn't feel long enough.  Of course, if hip length doesn't do it, nothing will.
 
I think hair can be gorgeous at any length.  I just want to see what it feels like to have extra long hair.  From that point, I can decide, based on personal experience, what's the best length for me.

I guess I want longer hair for 80% aesthetic reasons, 15% to see how long it will grow and 5% swanging competitions with my fellow asian friends..

Because growing up, my hair was never allowed to grow out. I had chemicals slapped in my head from an early age and it wasn't cared for properly which caused lots of breakage. Now that I'm grown and natural my hair is healthier and has grown longer than it ever has. Plus I can do more styles with longer hair.  I don't need waist length hair or nothing like that, bra strap is enough for me which I'm far from it still, lol.

Your so FUNNY!!! LOLLOLLOL
I totally agree with your whole hair swanging competitions!
I wanna be able to ACTUALLY "Whip my REAL hair back & f

"!!!
I want longer hair because I want to see how long my hair will grow.......my mind is focused on WL......but I have a feeling that after a month or so I will probably end up cutting it off & donating that hair! But just getting to WL will be AMAZING........then even more black people will realize that our hair can get FAR beyond shoulder length!!! Big smile

I would like to see how it can get with the proper care .
I never had long hair so to have long hair would be very different for me.
Different styling .
A different look.
And it would be a nice challenge for me

Because I am natural and I feel it looks better with length. I do not want to waste money on chemical relaxers, I love promoting afro beauty. I did not like short and natural, so I grew it out long to make more styles.

For completely vain reasons:

1. I used to have long hair and I enjoyed the compliments
2. I love taking down my weave and having long, healthy hair. I secretly love those: "your hair is so pretty, why do wear a weave" questions Embarrassed
3. to show that black women can grow long hair becuz a lot of people think "long" is SL/CBL....Confused

The ones who do not believe you, are those that do not read the Word of God.  "But if a woman have long hair, It is a glory to her; for her hair is given her for a covering." 1 Corinthians Chapter 11.

 When I had my locs I was under the impression that I was unable to grow my hair out that long w/out them until I started reading and going on sites. I am now inspired to grow my hair out to it's maximum.

 Don't get me wrong I LOVE short hair and think its chic and sexy, I have had it before. But as female who likes to switch up my look, I feel I have the patient and courage to let my hair grow. Cant wait to get to mid back length.

It is also a great accessory. But a woman who wears here hair short has a certain unique beauty that is not attainable by all. just saying.

I love short hair. It looks so good on so many people. Short the style here and long natural hair would be different since EVERYONE has the boycut or the shaved/ rooster combo thing.

So that I won't worry about when my hair will grow back if I get a trim
So I can wear it down and out a lot more.
Just so that I know that I can grow it out longer than it's ever been

Also... I guess I should add, my Asian counterparts always poke fun at my hair being short, and not flowing in the wind like theirs (I wear weaves 90% of the time so they rarely see my hair.. but when they do... :/ ). Don't get me wrong, they seem to love when my hair is out, but they just don't see it as getting any longer.

...
.....
........
BUT.. the last muhuhahahahahaha will be on them, because when my hair does grow longer, my ponies will be TWICE as thick as theirs.. for even when I flait iron, it steeeellll comes out thicker (I guess it's my flat ironing skills that are to blame, but I love my results so it doesn't even matter)..

I just love the fact that with jet black thick hair, my roots are never visible like theirs.

So WL next year is miiiiinnnneeeee.. and watch, their jaws will drop, since I'm virtually the only black chick in their "group"


So.. I guess, I'll add 20% showing off to my list above.. which throws off my whole 100% balance there..
Eh, I was never any good at maff anyways.

I'm not even going to lie I like to be the center of attentions. Not many black girls have long hair and I wanna stand out with my beautiful long tresses. I also wanna educate ppl on how to grow long hair and that your hair doesn't have to be "good" to get to wl.

I want my hair to be longer because:

2. To throw it in the ppl faces that looked at me like I'm crazy because I cut all my hair off to go natural.
3. To be able to whip it back and forth
4. To show people of all races that African American women can grow their hair past SL and not always use weaves/wigs.
5. To also help people get rid of the ignorance of "good hair" and "bad hair" and that you have to be mixed or another race to have long healthy hair.

Because I hate short hair on me, I had longer hair when I was younger...I love the pixie cuts and other short hair styles on other girls but I cannot picture myself with it Ermm

I have been growing my hair out because I have seen the older women in my family lose their hair as they have aged. I made a vow that I would not cut my hair anymore. I haven't had a relaxer in 20 months and have been weaved up all this time. I haven't officially measured my hair, but it is well past SL.

Growing up I was always told I had "pretty" hair but never really appreciated it. Over the last year it seems that my hair has been stressed a bit by my lack of maintenance.
 
1.I just want to get it back to a healthy state and see how long it will grow with proper care.
2.I also want to prove to people that black girls can have long hair.
3.Though I have relaxed hair, I want people to understand that you don't always have to flat iron and make it bone straight in order for it to look nice.  There is so much variety with a healthy head of hair no matter how long or what texture it is!!!
 
4. Lastly, I have to admit I too miss the questions like "is that really all your hair?", lol!!!

I want longer hair because I want to see how long it will grow.  I am not a big fan of weave I rather the hair be mine.  Everyone always assume black ladies can only have long hair if its weave.  I think some people stereotype woman of color.

I want long hair because I have never had long hair before.. I also think I look beautiful with long hair. Also, I'm tired of buying it. I just want to prove to myself that I can grow long and healthy hair. Most people around here see conditioned to believe that SL is long hair. I even thought that until I joined the hair boards and saw the beautiful hair. I will be excited once I reach full SL, but my goal is to have BSL hair stretched/straightened. So to honestly reach SL healthy hair will be a true milestone for me. I want to see my hair's full potential.

- Just to see if I can get it long, since my hair has never been past NL/SL.
- Longer hair gives me more styling options.
- I just LOVE BIG HAIR!!!

I have never had long hair before.Now I am at mbl and sometimes, I feel it is not long enough because of shrinkage.Personally long hair is more flattering.And it permit me to rock much more styles.

I've had short hair my entire life and I'm tired of it. I'd like to have long hair for a change.  Also, my hubby thinks that when you get to a certain point in life your hair  stops growing. I'd like to prove him wrong.

I wish I had found this sight several years ago. I would have learned how to take better care of my hair, and body, and I'd probably have BSL hair by now.

1) Brings out natural beauty

2) Cost less than weave

3) Looks and feels better than weave

4) Longer hair fits me better

5) Big hair is fabulous

5) It also feels good to prove that the stereotype is wrong about black hair

6) I just love long hair... I’ve been in love with it since I was a little girl.

My hair has always had a good length and I like the way look hair looks. You can have healthy hair at any length, however healthy long hair is my personal goal.

I have not had hair to apl since I was 18, I am now 32 and I want my natural hair to be healthy and long. If i could keep the hair color out of my hands then I could probably achieve it. I vow to not color my own hair anymore. Cry

There is an evolutionary psychological theory suggesting that long and beautiful hair is an indicator of health in women..long hair makes a girl more beautiful...long hair act as a pride for girls.

I really want to see how I look with longer hair. Plus, I want to try out more styles without the use of hair weaves(don't wear them, but still). I'm tired of short hair styles to be honest. I'd feel a bit better too.

My husband has pissed me off even more about long hair! Angry He is convinced Sistah's don't wear long hair any more unless it's weave.

I have got to grow my hair to APL! I will do whatever it takes over the next few years to grow my hair!

I want longer hair because I read a post on FB that made me think. It said, "Weave made Black Women lazy!" At first anger came to me instantly. Just as I was about to tell that man about himself I began to pat the top of my head. And I looked in the mirror and saw 18'' of weave sewed onto neck length hair. So I said, "Imma grow my hair out." The comment was very true as it applied to me. I didn't take out the time to care for my hair but now I am... I've been growing my hair since Nov 2009...

THIS!!! I love a good weave every now and then but I want my own.  I grew it to APL and then I colored it and it all broke off so I want to see if I can grow it back.  My ultimate goal is BSL.  After that I don't really now what else I would do with it.

Don't even let a stylist color it.  I made that mistake thinking if I let a professional do it, it would be okay but it wasn't.  My APL hair  broke off to NL in a matter of months. It hasn't been that long since.Cry But I'm working on it. I'm at SL now.
