View Full Version : CHIN length challenge...

:) OKAY...I KNOW I'm not the only one on this board who has a hard time getting their hair to grow longer than six inches or so. So...with that said, I'm starting a chin-length challenge. I'm not sure how long it will take or IF it is doable, but I want to try. I really want my BANGS to get to my chin, which will require about 5-6 six inches of additional length. Needless to say, this is EASILY a year's worth of challenge for me. OR there may be people out there growing from a baldie or fade. No matter what the deal, PLEASE come in here if you'd like to grow your hair to chin length. Of course, if my BANGS are chin length, that means that the rest of my hair will be much longer, unless I keep it cut. FOR ME, there are several layers in the back and keeping the bottom layer trimmed so that the other layers can catch up will make it fuller. We'll see how it goes.

I'll join, also for my bangs. I'm at about shoulder length stretched in the middle and back, but the front is much shorter. I'm hoping for the front to reach chin length by the end of 2010.

YAY!! I don't have the length you have, but it will be nice for someone to go through this with me. We'll keep each other company.

Yup this is me right here. (I'm also in the shoulder length challenge but this may be more realistic for me, but hopefully I'll get shoulder length in the back atleast.)

Been natural for years, bc several times, breakage, dryness, etc etc, as a result, I have never got my hair past 6 inches. I'm hoping it's because of the reasons above and not because it's genetic. (My mother, sister, and some of my cousins have hair longer than shoulder length so that's a good sign right?)

Right, now, I'm at about 6-7 inches. I think chin length is 9 inches so I hope to have chin length by September or December at the latest. *crosses fingers* This is the longest my hair will have ever been.

lol. This is cute. I've started locs. But I think the twists in the front could make it to my nose by the end of the year. STRANDed is set for the countdown.

ETA: I stretched the front twists and they ARE at my nose. Okay, so the goal is for the front twists to make it my chin :D

My front twists are at my eyebrows....I'm in. I've got a trim appointment Wed...the ends of my hair are pretty crispy.

LOL...this (chin-length bangs) is another milestone I haven't hit yet. However, it currently reaches to my upper lip, which means I'm only about 2.5" away from the chin.

I can only do one challenge at a time so I'm going to stick to the Length Retention one but I'll be cheering y'all on...

I'll join! I"m trying to grow my hair out from a fade. I haven't had it cut in a couple of months now. My bangs reach about halfway between my hairline and my eye brows. the hair at my nape reaches the bottom of my neck. right now I have braid extensions, because I'm hoping for growth.

Malawi same here. My back and middle are at shoulder length but my bangs only get to the end of my nose stretched. I am down too.

Are there any rules to this challenge?

I was so happy to see this post. I thought I was the only person with 3-4 inches difference in hair length in sections of my hair. I still a newbie 6 mos. natural and was beginning to wonder if I needed to see a dermatologist. I have 5 inches on top 4 on the sides with 1.5 inches of growth in part of the back top of my head. I'm definitely up for this challenge, lol. I've been wearing my hair in a very shrunken state for protection. Any specific oils or routines being used for this challenge?

Ohhhhh I am all in this one! Since I got heat damage, I just cut off the hair that was straight leaving a very uneven head of hair. My bangs are to my nose and down to my chin is where they used to be (if you can imagine the length of damage I had :( ) The back of my hair is past my shoulders, stretched, so I need the front to catch up FAST!

LadyBug13
01-04-2010, 08:44 PM
I'm in!

I echo the comments from those who have collar length and shoulder length hair in the crown and back. My bangs come just past my nose, and I would love to grow out this area. I'm not scissor happy, and the front of my hair has always been last to grow.

Welll, I didn't think as far as rules....I think that you HAVE to find a good regimen and stick to it. So, if you're a newbie, you may go through a product junkie phase. Shoot, there are some old heads around here who are STILL PJ's. Now, I am focusing this challenge for my BANGS, but actually, my hair is short all over, about 5 1/2 inches or so. So, if sides grew to be chin length, that would be awesome as well. Heck, if the BANGS get to chin length, my SIDES will be well past that point. My sides seem to get stuck at the 1 1/2 to 2 inches past earlobe length. So, the focus will be on taking care of the hair, being gentle, etc. I'm glad I didn't get laughed off the board. A lot of you have longer hair, but NaPPyfull seems to echo my sentiments more closely. I have had a HARD time over the years obtaining length and I would LOVE to have my hair grow longer so that I can do more styles with it.

I can't see the picture you posted in your post because I"m at work and I can't see a lot of pics here, so I'll have to see it when I get home. But, I"m looking at your AV pic. I think my hair is around the same length as yours right now. Maybe just a tad bit shorter than yours. Maybe we will complete the challenge around the same time? I don't know how fast your hair grows, though. My hair tends to grow very slowly.

I'm down w/the chin length challenge. My bang extend to the beginning of my nose. My natural anniversary is 5/2710, and it has not always been peaches & cream with my natural hair. Thanks to Nappturality, I been motivated not to give up because I believe eventually I will be rewarded with a beautiful head of hair. Thanks for the challenge and stay blessed.

Hopefully at this time next year I will be around chin length in the front, but that will be a big stretch (no pun intended).... um...chin length in the back (if that is posible) is def possible in about 8 months or so..... *sigh*

I'm late but I'm in. I cut my bang six months ago and it's growing back slowly. I'm approaching APL everywhere but my bang. I started my own challenge the end of dec but what the heck , what's one more challenge. Only thing I'm doing is trying to go for protective styles 2 weeks at a time so I don't get discouraged.

kyamiina
02-03-2010, 11:29 PM
I am down. My bangs only come to my nose. Are the only rules stick to your existing regimen? I am a relative newbie- one year nappy. So I am stlll tweaking the regimen, hope that's allowed.

gilroygal
02-04-2010, 02:15 AM
@ ms-gg- your hair must grow REALLY fast!

@ cerendipity. APL? You go girl!!!!

My bangs ae still in the same place that they get to (bridge of nose) and seemingly stop growing. I have never had hair that reached the end of my nose in the front. Perhaps it's not going to get there. Who knows?:huh:

I think I'm making progress. Then again, I haven't did anything to my hair but get it retwisted since I'm locking. So that may be the key.

02-15-2010, 04:20 PM
yeah Gilroygal , my sides and back are 3 inches from APL( stretched), however my bang and very front area is so slow . I was slightly depressed about it but oh well.

I took one of my braids out yesterday and just stared at it for like an hour or so. Pitiful lol.

I dont know how to get it to grow other than keeping it braided up in the front, its partly my fault though. Last year it was to the middle of my nose but little ole me had to go do an experiment on my bangs...... sigh

I just measured three pieces of hair: One from the back, from the front, and from the crown. The front is now 7 1/2 inches, the back is 8 1/2 inches, and the crown is 9 1/2 inches. I think the last time I measured, the front was between 6-7 inches, the back was 6 inches, and the crown was between 6-8 inches. I've been sticking to protective styles (buns, twists and twist updos, and tuck and go's since October).

03-22-2010, 08:50 PM
Am I too late to join in? I have the same exact problem. If I stretch my hair in the back it reaches my shoulder. Some spots even hit the collar bone. My hair in the front reaches the section between my lip and nose. It doesn't seem to grow.

goldenafrochild
03-23-2010, 04:33 PM
Im in. My bangs are to my nose, my crown is to about my eyebrows and my back which is always a problem is to the base of my neck in places and as short as 3 inches in others. I had some breakage this past summer and a stressful fall so my hair retention has been poor since then. All these lengths are stretched hairs so Im in this one. Got a new plan and everything..

CurlyBeauty
03-25-2010, 12:16 AM
I'm in! My bangs reach just to the bridge of my nose. The back reaches to the lower part of neck now! I have baby twists right now, so I'm sure I'll see definite growth after they come out in mid-April or May. Keep you posted.

My hair is actually getting shorter in the front.

Same here because silly me keeps nipping with a scissors every time I find a knot or anything that looks like a split. I'm just going to leave it until, I decide to do a full trim.

My bangs right now when stretched just about touch the bottom of my lips. My nape just touches my colar bone and the hair in the middle touches my nape. All of this is when my hair is stretched. I'm in for when my bang touches my chin fully. :)

Can I please join? My starting point today is EXACTLY like my avatar. Funny, that was August last year. Now, coming up on 1 year later, it's exactly the same length. It's not that my hair doesn't grow, I've been known to chop like 2 inches off at a time, when I notice my hair starting to hang "down". I don't know why I have this obsession with "big-out" hair. My hair refuses to grow sideways!!!
With all that whining out of the way: the back is collarbone stretched, sides at the top of my ears, and the front is probably at my eyebrows. Thinking of cutting the back shorter again, because the "2010 shag" is not cute...The pic in my avatar was a "reverse" bob type cut, with the back very short, and it has now passed the front, again.
Is anyone having these obvious uneven growth problems, where it's hard to wear "out" styles?
Another thought: Maybe the puff is stunting growth in the front, cause that's where I apply the most gel. (I may be on to something)

I cant hold the camera and snap to save my life. I always look like a deer in headlights or crazy. My bang at the longest point has reached underneath my nose and approaching the top of my lip.

My TWA is 5 or 6 months of growth.
This will take a while for me to reach CHIN length
but I am willing to take this challenge on.


Short Term Goal-- To reach the space between my eyebrows.

Middle Term Goal-- To reach the entire length of my nose.

Long Term Goal-- To reach my chinny-chin-chin! Finally! :-))

First, I must thank you for this 'facial' challenge. I see BSL and AL everywhere and I'm like, "can you wait for my hair to touch my ear"?

I definitely want to join in. My hair touches my chin on the sides but my bangs only reach my nose. I need about 4.5 more inches before that happens. Which will take me at least another year. :-(

I was wondering if you would mind setting up a LIP length challenge for some of us who are not even there yet (Maybe even a NOSE challenge for those still in the forehead region). That way, we can feel like every few months, we are making progress towards our goal.

Just a thought. ;-)

Okay I just found out about the Challenge forums from another forum and so I came to see what they were all about. That's when I saw this challenge. I was just saying to myself that I want to grow my bangs back out to my chin by the end of this year. I haven't had it that long since middle school during my permie days. Right now I am about an inch and a half past collarbone in the back of my hair, the middle reaches the nape of my neck and the front (my bangs) reaches my lip. So by December 2010 I hope to have reached the chin length goal. I'm so in!!!!

Yes i'll join in! My hair has grown from 2 inches to 5 inches and my hair grows in layers as well! Can wait to see the end result! So how are you ladies going to achieve your growth? I plan to just keep my ends moisturized and do protective styles such as 2 strands to grow mine mane.

Dude, my hair has been growing like cra-ra-zy! At first I thought I didn't have a shot in hell to join anytime soon but I'm in mayne. I think it will take a little less than a year up to a year to get chin length in the front. I'll be back with pics next week.

Bk is in the house....lol
I'm down with this challenge, my front hair is @ my nose, hopefully by 06/11 it will @ my chin. My hair grows slowly, however with loving care I will retain length & concur this challenge..

This is sooooooo inspirational.... for real.

ugg so close.
i'm like an inch away. for some reason my front gets tangled easier and i had to do an emergency half inch trim of it because it was all SSKs, splits and nasty.

i know the texture is different from the rest of my hair.
anyway my goal was to have it chin length by labor day. i'm gonna gave to push that off to nov 1

true but it's a challenge and most challenges the people participating post pictures or updates on how they're doing. this challenge has been going on since january and other than myself only 4 or 5 other people out of the many who are participating have posted results. but whatevs if no one else cares that's cool. once i reach my goal i'll move on to the next. good luck to everyone!

Sup everyone. I think I'm almost to there. I scrunch my chin up to cheat a bit.lol But the first pic is from July 27 and the second one is from tonight. (Yep I flatiron one part of my hair to check its length) My hair loves water so it will revert from just shower steam....And I go back to my shrunken fro.

just wanted to show how fast my hair curls again. Ur hair may not do this... I dont recommend anyone straightening their hair just 4 S*&tz n giggles. I do it like twice a year, different section, and very low settings. Just enough to measure that very last centimeter....haha. But this is my hair this is just after spraying water on it like twenty minutes later...so...Imma tell u not to do it right after I do it.... just as practice for my future parenting role.lol Again dont go straightening ur hair cuz u think it may revert. U may be highly disappointed.

Almost all there, I did these box braids recently, and almost all of the hair is at least chin length, the very top and a few sections in the side have about 2 more inches to go.

In low bun territory now!!

I'm soooooo close to my chin. My bangs reach just below my bottom lip, barely. I'm sure I can get another inch or so by the end of the year.

I'd love to join this! I'll post updates and pictures etc! My length in the back is currently 1-2 inches past my nape, shorted on the sides, same or a little longer on the top and my bangs are short-what they call "Chinese bangs."
