It's not a very dramatic difference, since I've cut 2 inches off since February, as I gradually cut off damage, but still, I'm pleased. First a picture of this month's length.
February to August Comparison
The photos are clickable as always. It's obvious that I still have a few inches of damage. I'm going to be trimming minimally for the next year, and I'm hoping to be at waist length by August of 2011.
I think I'll maintain at waist until I grow out the damaged, thin ends. Or I might just cut off half of my growth every 3 months. I'll have to wait and see how it all shakes out.
All in all, I'm happy with my progress. As far as the damage goes, it could have been worse, and in that case, I might have had to cut my hair very short, as I've had to do in the past.
'Til tomorrow, my friends. Love to all.
