My husband has wanted to see me with long hair for some time now, but due to my straightening, I never really wanted it long, and it was always fried. When I told hime my goal was to get my hair mid-back he laughed. He said I love you, but you'll never do it! My jaw dropped! He also told me he liked my hair straight! But he said he would probably like it curly when it's longer. Now keep in mind that when my hair was to the middle of my neck, I wasn't exactly using very good products, and my curls didn't look all that great. I can't wait to prove him wrong! Thanks to LL and it's members I am learning how to care for my hair the healthy way!

From my own experience, most people cannot visualize someone with a drastically different hair style.  Have fun showing hubby your "new look".

Thanks BB, and I will once again be able to prove my hubby wrong! I just wish he would at least say he supports me, and thinks I can do it. I support him in every venture he has ever taken on, even if I didn't think he could really do it.

1. What's your favourite way of wearing your hair?
french braided

2. Your favourite hair toy (just one, if you can). Why it's your favourite?
i dont have a fav.

3. Do you have a hairstyle that you would love to wear but can't for some reason (too difficult to make, can't be made with your type of hair etc.)
id ont wear my hair down much because it tangles 2 easily

4. Who's your long hair idol? (= a person whose long hair you admire and who inspires you)
i like BB's hair. it looks long & healthy

5. Do you try to copy your idol's hairdos?
my hairs not long enough 2 do BB's hairstyle

6. Do you have any great hair care tip?
well i usually wash my hair before i go to bed because otherwise i have the tendency 2 brush it wet which is really unheathy and when you wake up your hair is dry and u can brush. also ont wash your hair 2 often. in a way you can train your hair . . . if you wash it once a week thats all it will need. if you wash it every other day it will tend 2 get greasy in tht short time period.

7. What in your opinion is definitely passée?
i dont like layers

8. What's the best hair length? (in general, not necessarily on you)
every person has their own style

9. What's trendy next summer? Let your imagination run wild!
incredibly long hair

Okay..more mother stories....my mother postively rejoices in telling me "women over 35 shouldn't have long hair"..I'm 38, go figure.....and she also relishes telling me how her cousin couldn't persuade her 10 year to get her hair cut (apparently split-ended and rat-tails, I never saw it), until my mother asked the kid why she wanted to have the longest hair in the school, if it wasn't the nicest....the intonation she puts into telling this story makes me want to slap her, like, if a 10 year old does what I say, why don't you?

Why do women do that kind of thing to each other? First it's..."long hair? oh yes, clinging to your youth"...suggest cutting it, and it's "it'll take YEARS of you!" ...so who's clinging to their youth then? Double-standards make me want to puke, and the women who bandy them around are just trying to make you feel bad so they can feel better. Ignore the bitches (it's what they are, I'm not apologising) and do what you want!!!

Rant over.

People seem to assume that plain, long hair is for the lazy and careless who can't bother to care for their hair.  When people find out how seriously I take the condition of my hair because I want it to be long and healthy they can't understand why I don't get a "real" hairstyle and get something for my time and money.  Then they use that hypocritical and senseless argument about how a "real" style will cut down on my daily routine "or at least make it worth it". Roll Eyes

"So you gave up on that layered style?"  No, I just didn't like them in the end.  "Well, longer hair really suits you but I can understand why as a homemaker you prefer your hair shorter and simpler".  No, I had long hair when I was a full time student and worked part time.  I just wanted to get my hair into the shape I want to grow it in which is one blunt length.  It irritates me when I've not even indicated that my hair is up for discussion.  

Now people think and probably hope that I'm going to adopt a simpler style all over.  But I actually think I'm striking a very attractive balance with all the busy colors, accessories and retro 50s styles I wear, with a simple sheet of black hair.....and usually flat black footwear. Smiley  I like things to coordinate. Wink  

Individual styles are encouraged like never before as long as your style is thoroughly predictable to "type".  People who know me have described me as odd and off so there!

Well, I hope that everyone wears their hair the way they like and don't feel pressured into making their hair conform to other people's expectations of what someone who dresses a certain way should wear their hair.

I decided to grow my hair out from a short, curly perm, a little over 3 yrs. ago.  It is very fine, layered, colored and wavy/curly and almost BSL now.  For the first time in my life I love my hair.  My mom and all the men in my life support me in this, and who else is important?  I would say just what I said to the people who were critical when I cut it short and permed it,  "If I had wanted your opinion, I would have asked for it."

BTW, I am 58 and will never cut my hair short again.

I've always considered myself unconventional. I never wore designer brand clothes, went to parties, or got wasted. My career choice isn't typical, my exercise routine isn't either, I've never been "typical" I still don't have an ipod for pete's sake.  Roll Eyes Grin I figured why should my hair be any different.  Cheesy I got it layered once in high school because I wanted it to look more like everyone else.  Roll Eyes Thing was somebody still said my hair awful.  Tongue Roll Eyes Since I've grown it out and got rid of the layers, which drove me up the wall!  Angry I've actually gotten compliments on my hair, and now it's not "typical'. Go figure.  Roll Eyes Grin

"Well, longer hair really suits you but I can understand why as a homemaker you prefer your hair shorter and simpler".

I don't know why people persist in thinking that short hair is simpler.  I once had my hair 2" long all over my head, and that was the most high-maintenance style I've ever had.  It took 3 different products to make it do right.  Any stylist will tell you that the shorter your hair is, the longer you'll spend styling it.  Plus, it only usually does one or two things.

That's the thing I love about long hair...the style is exactly as high maintenance as you want it to be.    Cheesy
