Bikerbraid,

   I would have no idea how to do a French braid.  All I can do is the simple three-strand ....single braid with my hair.  I may not have enough hair for a French braid.

I have received compliments on my hair from a number of women over the past few months!  I had to have a course of physio to deal with a pain in my back recently and each week she said much she admired my luxuriant hair and wished hers were as thick!  Nice to get the compliments and Mrs Redgate doesn't seem to be jealous.

But I still cannot braid my hair - French or otherwise

Since society still views long hair as primarily a female trait, I'm afraid you will probably continue to hear such comments.  All I can offer to you, is to be strong and comfortable with who you are and not let the comments affect you.


Oh, I know that. Most don't do it intentionally, and direct comments like "You need a haircut." haven't made me think twice, I don't really care what people think. I know I'll probably hear comments like that all my life, but like I said, most aren't directed towards me, most of the people who've said they thought i was a girl, I could tell they actually did, so it's actually kind of a compliment to me, as it's shown how much my hair's grown, and how much it'll keep growing.

I also remember someone who I only met once before, who is a friend, I just don't see her that much, I was hanging out at a friend's house with a few other people, and she started petting my hair, and said it was soft. I'm actually pretty lucky she likes my hair, she said she normally doesn't like long hair on guys, but I was an exception, she said I didn't look weird with it. I think it might be partially because she never saw me with short hair, but I don't know

Today at church I received a hair compliment!  I had a low ponytail flipped with one of my antique combs above the point where the flip is.  My pony tail automatically twists into a spiral ringlet.  The lady behind me said "I love your hair, want to trade?"  I laughed, said "thank you, but you can just grow it".  She said "Oh my hair would never look that good long". 

Why is it that older women (she was my age) never think they could have nice long hair?  She made my day, by the way.

They think they can't have long hair because they have been brain washed by their hair stylists to think that their hair requires regular trims.  After all, that's what keeps the stylists in business.

I walked into SuperCuts today for a haircut and as I was waiting, there was a six year old boy and his mom sitting next to me. The kid whispered to the mom that 'She needs a haircut' and the mom just told the child that was the reason why I was here. The kid than said, 'she needs to cut a lot off.' At that point the mother just told him to hush. Roll Eyes

What a rude child!  (children learn what they have heard from adults...)  I might have said something like "Oh no, I only cut off the unhealthy ends"  Of course, I stay out of places like Supercuts anyway.  If you are able to find a beautician who will cut only what you ask, you are very fortunate!

I had to chuckle..... I grew up next door to an ex-Navy man who always wore his hair very short - a butch cut.  He had the softest brush I've ever felt.  He used it every day to brush his hair to make it stand up on top.  I bet the guy who commented to you would not have dared say anything to my 6'2", 260 pound, solid muscle neighbor!

Aw... braiding is the one thing I miss most about my long hair! I can french braid, dutch braid (same as a french braid except it pops out instead of in), lace braid... you name it! It's harder for me to do it on other people, though...

Grow, hair, grow!

My cousin isn't a stranger, but...

When we were little, and I had my long straight hair and hers was mid-length and curly and frizzy and crazy, she used to ask me to trade, and I'd always say no.

Then we grew up, and she figured out how to take care of her hair and grew her curls long and beautiful, and I died and fried and chopped my hair to bits.  At christmas the year I had my pixie cut I went up to her and said...Hey, cuz, about that trade you mentioned back in the day...

Guess what she said?

I used to practice on my cabbage patch doll when I was a kid and learned to do a french braid that way.  My friends with longer hair have asked me to do their hair.  I can do the double ones on the side too, but I've never been able to do my own hair.  I can do it ok until my arms give out.  I think if I kept practicing my arms would get stronger but they get so tired!
