Okay. This is it. Here I am creating my own hair journal. I wish I had done this years ago. Maybe I would have been consistent about letting my hair grow out. Now that I'm 47 I have this desire to really let it get long. Here's my hair now. I think it's longer than the picture I posted in July on the Long Hair Support page. That's really encouraging.

Here's a style I just learned how to do. You put your hair in a low pony tail. Split it into sections and twist and wrap. Easy to do and comfortable.

Hey Pburgh! Welcome to my hair journal! Of course I remember you. I've just been having a lot of fun looking up different styles on the Internet. I ask my hubby to take a picture every time I do something different. He thinks I'm nuts!! So, what are your updates?

Hey Kitty Kat! I'm glad you started a journal too. Your hair does look longer then the first picture you posted. Love the waves! Your flexi looks great. Good color choice with your hair too!

Thanks you guys!!
 
Paper - I've really been having fun learning new styles. You Tube has a lot of instruction videos. Another thing, let's face it, I don't see the back of my hair. When I look at the pictures I think hey, that's kinda cute. In the past I've had lots of thoughts of cutting it. When those thoughts start to creep in again, maybe it will help to look through my pictures. I wore a French twist today. If hubby gets home before I take it out, I'll have him get a picture.
 
Pburgh - Hey, that's great you can get your hair into little pigtails. It's always exciting when it reaches a new stage. Are you growing your bangs out too?

Here's the French twist. That's all the pictures I have up my sleeve for awhile.

wow Kitty Kat i love the french twist soo cute :) It def is exciting when my hair reaches a new length :) To answer ur question I am planning to grow out my bangs ver long like down to my chest :) any suggestion?


Posted By: Kitty Kat

Pburgh, any suggestions on growing out your bangs, you mean? I've had bangs all my life whether my hair was long or short. About five years ago, I grew them out. My hair is all one length now. While I still miss my bangs, I really love not having them. I always had to curl and spray them. My hair is so easy now. I spend about a half hour getting dressed, doing hair and makeup in the morning. (I shower at night.)
 
I've never understood when someone gets a makeover why they cut their bangs long enough to get in their eyes but short enough you can't even tuck behind the ears. I hate it when hair is in my eyes and that was the worst part about growing my bangs out. That was another goal I was so excited about, when I could finally tuck my bangs behind my ears.

Awwwwww i know what u mean i hate having bangs. I honestly cant wait to tuck them behind my ears that wil be a  major goal for me to accomplish :) Is there anything I can do to keep them out of the way as they grow?


Posted By: Kitty Kat

Well, when they started getting in my eyes I just pinned them back somehow with barrettes, bobby pins, etc. OR, maybe it won't bother you. I've been told my hair grows forward so maybe that's why it bothered me so much. Some people with longer bangs just seems like they naturally stay off their face.


Posted By: Pburgh56
Date Posted: August 13 2009 at 6:26am
I hope mine naturally stay off my face :) If not i will prob use barrettes or bobby pins too and pin mine back. do u think that would work for a guy? what about a headband?
Also I was wondering should I let my bangs grow straight down like that or should i get a center part soon. :)
Anything else new with your hair?

Thanks Mike!! So, if I start thinking about cutting it short, I'm hoping I can count on everyone here to talk me out of it!
 
Pburgh, I have definitely seen men wear headbands. Try googling men's long hair styles. As far as whether to part or not...hmmm, that's kind of a personal decision. I can say that I usually part mine differently every day. It seems to give it a little more body up top if I don't part it exactly in the same spot every day.

Thanks Kitty Kat. ur advice def is alot of help. I will def google some styles. I think I am going to start parting it myself a little bit at least. that way i can try different parts and everything and get some more volume like u said. I also wore a headband today and I relaly liked it. Do u think guys can look good with long hair?

Do I think guys can look good with long hair??? Heck yeah!!! I've been envious many times of a guy's hair. I just don't like long greasy hair! How did the headband work for you? I wear those a lot myself.


Posted By: Pburgh56
Date Posted: August 14 2009 at 4:08pm
Thanks dont worry i def dont have greasy hair so u are fine there :) THe headband works great i just push my bangs back with it so it holds them back and i wear it like hat :) how do they work for u? what kinds do u wear?


Posted By: Kitty Kat
Date Posted: August 14 2009 at 6:42pm
Headbands work great for me. I try to use skinny, light ones because they don't seem to make the area behind my ears sore like some of them do. Did you have that problem?

Hey Paper! This is my extra large Flexi.

I love ur flexi :) it is sooo cute and absolutely adorable :) As for the headband I do have that same problem I hate when the back rubs my ears so i go with the small ones too. i have become fond of the cloth ones recently :) have u tried them?


Posted By: Mike46019
Date Posted: August 14 2009 at 9:44pm
I for one would try my best. But when this are say and done it is up to you to cut or not. Anyway thank you for the new updo pic.

Pburgh, I'm not really fond of the cloth headbands. They feel like they're going to come off my head. And for some reason, they knot my hair up at the back of my neck. I really like the way they look on other people though. Smile

Hey Mike, let me ask you this...what do you think about long gray hair? My plan was always to cut it when it started getting gray. But Paper introduced me to a website with absolutely gorgeous long gray hair. It really made me think about it differently. And I think that's why I have a renewed interest in long hair.


Posted By: Pburgh56
Date Posted: August 15 2009 at 10:51am
Thanks Kitty Kat I like the way they look on me.  I understnad if u dont like them tho and i think the other ones would look great too . i love ur hair and i def think long gray hair would look great on u too :)


Posted By: Kitty Kat
Date Posted: August 15 2009 at 2:42pm

Thanks Pburgh! Time will tell if I look okay with long gray or not! Are you having any difficulty with longer hair and this hot weather? I can't stand my hair on my neck when it's hot. That's why it would either have to be super short or long enough to put up on hot days. sunny

awww im sure ull look great. :) I actually havent been that bad with my hair this summer yet. It is alot different cause im used to it short and it hangs down onto my neck. the big thing is the bangs in the summer. I usualy wear a bandana or headband or clips or i just brush it back or to one of the sides. Do u have any trouble with ur hair in the heat?

I saw your post I don't know how I missed it. To answer your question I think going gray is natural comes with life itself. So cutting because of it I would say don't bother. My friend's wife is going gray and is a red head she looks great her hair is still thick I tell her don't cut it. So either should you unless you fell you should.
