: Hi! During COVID I decided to start growing out my hair. Something Iíve been wanting to do for many years. How long should I go?
First of all: your hair looks EXCELLENT!!
Secondly, re. how long you should grow it: just think of the whole experience as an "adventure" or a discovery process -- only you can answer that question for sure.
In my humble opinion, if I were in your shoes, I'd grow it as looooooong as possible. If the length starts bothering you before you achieve what's commonly called "terminal length", by all means trim it.
The first time I grew my hair out, I tried various different hairstyles until 9 years later, I arrived at waist-length. The longer I grew it, the more I liked it!
In June of 2000, I impulsively cut my hair short -- and deeply regretted that decision. That's when I made a commitment to growing it back AND KEEPING IT LONG... Of course there are situations that might be out of my control (like: an accident or an illness or some crazed evil guy shaving my head against my will); but, in general, it's highly unlikely that I'll ever go back to having short hair again.
Take care, have fun with your long hair journey, and Welcome to MLHH!
