    Re: My hair

    Tufguy, you must learn what is a complete sentence and what isn't. You regularly post sentences like "When I was thirteen." You have posted things like "If I want to say that I am tired." Neither of those is a complete sentence.

    In this thread, as bhaisahab showed you, you should have started "When I was thirteen, my hair was very long".

    You will also have noticed that in your context, "hair" is uncountable so it takes a singular verb.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: My hair

    So "Past my waist or knees" is correct?

    Re: My hair

    Not if you precede it with "My hair were".

    And for the millionth time, we do not construct a sentence by writing a statement and putting a question mark at the end. Your question should have been "So is XXXXX correct?"

    Please concentrate on what we are trying to teach you here.
