"How Long Are You Going to Let Your Locks Grow"

Survey: How long are you going to let your locks grow?

BTW- I am almost at 4 years and 1 month, for those of you who have asked me WHERE ARE THE PHOTO"S of my 4 year+ anniversary, I am still working on them. I plan on washing my locks this weekend and getting the photo's posted by early next week.

*The reason I am posing this survey question is because I am curious to see how long you want your locks to grow. My locks are growing so long I am not sure if I want to let them grow until they stop, to see the potential, or just stop at, maybe, my bra strap............WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS???????

I plan to let mine grow until they reach about the small of my back or maybe a few inches above that spot. No longer, though. I'm wondering if too much length will carry weight that might prove to be an issue, especially when I have to shampoo them.

Hey Sis-

I want to grow my locks as long as they will grow...I had long hair almost to my shoulders when I was a permie, so it would be interesting to see how long they will grow in my natural state. I am looking forward to them growing:)

Probably to just below my shoulders. I have had long hair before and I cannot imagine my hair to the middle of my back with the type hear we deal with here in Alabama. So long as I can put it in a ponytail or wear other versatile styles I am cool with a modest length.

I'm thinking that I will only let them grow shoulder length. I have a small face and small frame. When I used to get extension braids, I never like them very long. Who knows though -- maybe with my real hair, it'll be different. I'm nearly 9 months locked but can't wait until it's time to make these sort of decisions.

I will let them grow to mid back and then see if I can handle carrying that much hair. I see how well Sisterlock founder Dr. Cornwell carries hers so I'm inspired by that.

Well, since this is the LONGEST my hair has ever been, I may just ride this puppy out. I do have days when I want to cut it all off and start over...(with Sisterlocks, that is).

Wow, it is amazing how we all differ....

For me, I plan on letting my hair grow to my mid-back(bra-strap) and then see if I want to keep it going.

I am curious, like Cherie, to see how long my hair will grow.
