View Full Version : Introduction
September 23rd, 2004, 06:00 AM
Hello there! It's nice to meet more long hair fans! I thought I would introduce myself - still looking around the board (I'm in heaven!).
Anyway, I've had long hair most of my life - length varying - and now I'm trying to grow it out as long as I can. Unfortunately I never bothered to really measure it or keep track of how long it was, at what date (wish I had) as my errr.... "hair obsession" is a new thing for me (as is learning to care for it properly, now). My profile picture is a few months old, sadly. Need to update it as well as get a more accurate measurement (I tried measuring it myself yesterday), but I think it's at 40 inches now.
I'm kind of drawing a blank right now (sorry... haven't had breakfast or coffee yet!) so I'll close with a "looking forward to getting to know you all"! :)

Welcome to our wonderful nook! :flowers:
I understand what you mean about "hair obsession". I gave very little attention to my hair in general most of my life... So this is like a BINGE!

LOL! Thanks :D I actually really WAS being horrible to my hair and it was showing.... if I get a chance a little later I'll post the before shot - my ends were scraggly and thin and very damaged. I went to a hairdresser I trust and she cut off a few inches to make it all one length.
The best things I've done, besides the cut of course, that showed immediate results were to get a wide-toothed comb and at least use IT before I brush (I still use a paddle brush to help keep my hair from going into separate sections and to help me slick my hair back so I can have it even to work with) and a boar's hair brush so I don't have to wash my hair everyday. Oh yeah, and learning to do quick up-do's so I'm not risking more damage. It's amazing how those few things have really helped.
Next step is to buy a pair of scissors so I can dust for splits. :D

Yes, WELCOME, and what beautiful hair you have....so shiny and rich color!! I remember how I felt when I first found these hair boards! Super-exciting, isn't it?!:flower:

I finally had a chance to look for my pre-trim image from this past May. You can see how thin my ends are. She took off the smallest amount we felt necessary (some more probably should have come off, but neither of us wanted to go that far just yet) and to help even the line out. I don't think I'd ever had my hair cut straight across so I figured that would be a great time to give it a try. I really like it this way so I'll probably let her do that again next time I get a trim (I'm thinking every 6-12 months for trims).

I know! I can't stay away - I keep coming back several times a day wanting to read more! LOL!
edited to say I wish I could reply to each and every one of you about how beautiful all your hair is but I don't want to flood the thread/board. So I'll say it now - every one of you have beautiful hair and it's a REAL treat to look at your photos and see all the different lengths, textures and colors. So much fun! Thank you all for sharing YOUR photos! :flower:

Hi Cynthia, :waving:
I'm late in welcoming you, but you have AMAZING HAIR! Wow! I can just wish...
Oh, and I read somewhere you love (bad) puns... me too, my favourite style of humor is absurdism. So I'll just share this:
What did Obi-Wan say to Luke in the dinner table? "Use the fork, Luke. You've got to use the fork." :wacko: :grin:
November 2nd, 2004, 05:52 AM
Thanks for the welcome, everyone! I'm still amazed by all the information and help I've been finding on this board :D
