Length Check

Hey #TeamLovely!

I started growing out my perm August 2012, big chopped January 2014 and didn't get another professional haircut until September 2017 (another "mini-big chop"). Today's length check is the aftermath of my whole journey.

What Is A Length Check?

A length check is simply a measurement of how long my hair currently is or how long it has grown since a previous time.

How To Do A Length Check

If you're like me, you don't have a fancy length check shirt and you're not even going to go through the trouble of measuring your hair with a ruler! It can be hard to notice any hair growth because it feels like it's the same length for months and months. I found the best way to check the length of my hair is by comparing its current state with old photographs and videos.
