: : Hello MLHH! :)
: : I'm Avi! I'm really happy to meet you all. Since I was a kid I've always known I've wanted to grow really long hair- its just something I knew was right for me and it really beckoned to me for reasons I really don't know. I still have that dream- however, I'm a minor(16 right now) and my parents are very strict about this sort of thing- I'm still a short-haired teen at the moment unfortunately. When I head off to college in about 1.5 years I plan to start growing my hair out- I'm looking to get to floor length. And I know it's a very long journey, one that will probably take over a decade- but I'm very set on taking that journey. I just know it :) Seeing that so many of you have the same calling makes me happy that I have others to relate to and help me on this journey. I just wanted to start to get to know you guys and hear from you about your personal tips regarding hair care and where exactly to start when I start growing out- I want to make sure to keep my hair as healthy as possible and I want to know what I'm doing when I start, so that I don't screw up somewhere along the way and mess up the work I've put in. So yeah, I just want to hear input in all regards from y'all- what challenges have you faced? how do you take care to ensure your hair stays healthy? what do you recommend I do at the moment as I still have 1.5 years before I leave the house?
: : I appreciate anything you guys can give me, thanks so much :)
: Hi Avi,
: Welcome to the MLHH! I'm afraid I really can't add much to what everyone else has already said. But I can tell you that your 1.5 year wait to start growing your hair should prepare you for the wait while your hair grows. Patience is what it takes! And I wish you nothing but fast hair growth and understanding from your parents. Do well in school and help your parents as much as possible. I'm sure they will understand your long hair. I look forward to your updates!
Thanks so much Ted! I've spent the last four years preparing for the journey ahead of me, and each day has been hard since I just want to start so badly :( I'm ready to wait but the sad part is I could have gotten a lot done in the time I've been waiting so far. School is going well and I definitely will give my parents the help they need. Thanks so much for the kind words, and I can't wait for the day that I can post my first hair update :)
