I was really looking forward to see my length shots. I honestly had no idea just how long my hair is getting and in what state my ends are in.
Once you reach a certain length it becomes impossible to get a real look at your ends yourself. You turn into an eager dog hunting for your tail when you do that.
So I was pretty surprised to see that my ends are still fairly thick, if they haven’t even thickened up!
I really had assumed I would be approaching terminal length by now.
Once you approach terminal length, your ends will thin out a lot.
Before hair sheds to repeat the growth cycle, they enter a resting phase where they don’t grow. This means a true terminal length has extreme taper since not all hairs grow to the same maximum length anyways.
People who are at real, true terminal length usually have just a few hairs that are super long, so if your ends resemble a blunt cut just remotely, you are not near terminal.
Pretty surprising, but I guess I still have a bit of growth left in my scalp. Question is how much longer I will like it.
