Hi, all! I'm new to these boards but not to loving long hair. Some of you may recognize me from the LHL boards.
My story: I cut my hair to a chin length bob from a shoulder length shag (from almost bsl) back in June of 2001. Since then I've been growing towards waist-length and am happy to report that I'm only 7.5 inches away!
I have oily hair that has begun to demonstrate a mind of its own more frequently. Over all, my hair is in decent shape, although my long-time use of sharp bobby pins has contributed to breakage. :( A friend has described my hair as "fragile," so I have to be extra careful with my length.
Well, that's about all there is to say about me. I look forward to learning from all of you!

Welcome to the boards, Almare!
It's nice to have another "fragile haired" member!!!! My gets eaten up by the tiniest little flaws on hair toys . . . and let's not get started on jeweled or intricate detailing!!!! ;)

Welcome! It's so nice to meet you. I'm another member of the fragile hair club, and I've discovered recently that I really can't do any brushing a all.
Here's to a successful journey to waist length for you. :D

Welcome to LHC!
I'm far from the fragile hair club, in fact my hair care would probably curl your tresses! Ask Tbear.... she nearly fainted looking at my sharp hairtoys!
Anyways, glad to have you on the board and looking forward to your posts!

Wow! You guy are wonderful!! Thank you so much for the warm welcome!!!! I'm also relieved to see how many others out there have fragile hair. I was beginning to think I was some type of mutant. :shock:
Don't worry--I'll be posting here when my busy schedule allows. I may "disappear" from time to time, but I always come back. ;)
Healthy, happy hair growing to all of you wondeful people!!

Welcome to the board! :D
I'm not really sure how you were using the bobby pins but perhaps you might want to try Magic Grip Hairpins? They work great for holding hair and are hair friendly. I picked up a package of 10 for $1.69 at Sally Beauty Supply. Here's a website so you can see what they look like:
Straight with body wave and one or two visible S-waves, Coarse & Thick
Biotin - 5mg
Flaxseed Oil - 1000mg
Evening Primrose Oil - 1300mg
Vitamin E - 800 I.U. (Dr's orders)
Calcium Citrate - 1000mg
MSM - 1000mg
