Way back in April 2007, I found the Loom and started measuring my hair (17.5 inches). Since then, I have grown my hair (but not longer than 23 inches) and cut it off (from 16 to 17.5 inches) many times because I struggled with health-related hair thinning and loss for many years due to autoimmune thyroid disease. I am thankful to God that my hair is much better now, and coloring it with Hairprint gives it nice texture and shine.
