How long would I grow my hair?  I suppose there is no limit to the length, depending on the circomestances.  Although I love ultra long hair on a lot of people, I probably won't grow mine that long.
 
The best thing for my hair is keeping a good distance between me and any stylist who thinks most women should wear short hair.

Mid thigh length is the max for me.  I greatly respect everyone who has the patience for longer than that, but I don't think that's going to be me.  I guess I'll see when I get there. 

Best things as in hair products, or hair accessories?  I have a hair safe website in my signature if you need to make some hair safe accessories.  Products though, I don't think I know 2 people here who use all the same products!  They are a very individual choice for what works best on your hair.  Are you growing yours out too, or only your daughter?

for Miri the best thing for her hair are braids and updos.
also turning a deaf ear on anyone who discourages her to grow her hair long

Hi Sugarcube,

How long would I grow my hair?  The answer is contained within my signature picture.

The best thing to preserve the condition of long hair is gentle care (rule number one!).  Consider the stresses to your tresses when doing such things as cleaning and straightening it... and the things which tangle it, and what things can be done to reduce or eliminate tangles -- the braid & bun suggestions you offer are excellent in that regard.

I am at just about 30" and loving it the longer the better.  I'm thinking another foot although seeing Dave and Longhaired 1 gets me thinking of the super length.
1b-M-ii type, 29.5 inches long as of 07/11/06, goal for now waist

Well, my goal length has no limit. I am just going to let it grow with a few trims every now and then.

My goal length is to be able to sit on it. After that I'll decide whether I want to cut it to hip length or grow it even longer.
 
Right now it's an inch or two past bsl.

I don't know exactly how long I will let it get. I know my goal right now is to reach my tailbone.
AS far as what to use, gentle shampoos, if any, condition, condition, and condition. Vitamins are a must. A diet high in protein will help to.As well as salmon oils( or fish oil) or flax oils.

My goal is to make it look tailbone length without pulling it straight.  That means about 3-4 inches to go.

You can see pics of my growth journey on my hair space.  Most recent pics are from last summer.  It still looks close to that now.  (my avatar pic is from '05)

Hairbraider, it is so beautiful! My curl shape is almost the same as yours.I have a layer on the top that goes almost straight , though. It drives me nuts!

Embarrassed Thanks Alisa!  I do have to try hard to keep the top layer of hair from going straight.  I think that's something most curlies experience because it's the most exposed part.

Interesting... I am going to try the lime juice you mentioned before. I have noticed that the more I do n ot brush, the curlier it gets.
