Happy Birthday, Madora!

Your sister did a great job photographing your hair -- it looks gorgeous, and it's great to see an updated photo. :) I love your texture -- it must be all that boar bristle brushing -- and I do believe I can see some very nice hints of red!

May 8th, 2011, 05:37 AM

Happy Birthday and Congratulations!!

May 8th, 2011, 08:11 AM
Dear Friends,

Thank you, one and all, for your wonderful comments! I appreciate your good wishes and compliments more than I can say, espec. since at present I'm going thru a lot of anxiety about coping with the other part of hitting 65...trying to find a company that will be best suited for handling the charges that Medicare does not cover. It is rather overwhelming dealing with all that..so your good wishes made me feel much better.

One word to would be long hairs...

It all boils down to 3 things..genetics...handling your hair gently and using hair friendly products..and tons and tons of patience!
I'm a firm believer in the George Michael system of long hair care -- although I have seen members here who have tremendous hair and didn't use his products. I believe in pure boar bristle brushes and I firmly believe that the less you do with your hair, the better it is!

Thank you all! And thanks, too, for all the tips and hints about hair styling..and the EVOO treatment! JoJo, I owe you one! I'm still over the moon about EVOO!:cheese:

May 8th, 2011, 08:19 AM
Happy Birthday! Your hair is beautiful. :)

May 8th, 2011, 08:20 AM
Happy Birthday. Your hair is beautiful....

May 8th, 2011, 08:48 AM
Happy birthday, Madora! :blossom:
And thanks for convincing me about the BBB. I only bought mine two weeks ago but I am sure it worth the money. :)
... by the way, I admit that you are one of my LHC hair idols. :)

May 8th, 2011, 08:55 AM
Hope you had a wonderful birthday and thanks for sharing that gorgeous picture of your hair!

Your hair looks absolutely beautiful!

(Now, I have to admit, when I read "the big 65" I thought this was a thread about hair 65 inches long :D That's what happens when you spend so much time on LHC, I guess!)

Happy birthday!

And your hair is breathtaking! :o
You should be very proud!

Dear Friends,

Thank you so very much for your kind words. They mean a lot. I never knew anyone with long hair as I was growing up..or even as an adult (except for the George Michael folks) so your compliments mean a lot.

I never cease to be amazed at the creativity I've seen here at LHC..and the incredible heads of hair, the hair styling, and the dedication that many show in making their hair the best that it can be.

Kudos to all of you!
