...open a can of pickled beets and think "Hmmmm...I bet it would be super cool to soak my hair in this! Vinegar plus awesome magenta color. Oh, yeah!" :cheese:

I didn't do it but I just might! It's very tempting.

Has anyone used pickled beet juice in their hair?

Also, have you had an "Only and LHCer would...." moment?

Onion peels!!
I wonder if they will give a perm red dye!!??

I use onion peels (a s#!t load of them) to dye eggs the colour of deep burgundy. I have always wondered if it would do the same for hair. It doesn't take long for colour release at all and it looks permanent.

It's an LHC thing, don't worry, we understand you!
I was at Red Robin last night with my friends and i HAD to read the ketchup and mustard ingredients to see what good they would do to hair. I could only guess the red might help give slight color to henna heads when they are scared of losing some when they do other experiments and it MIGHT? lie the cuticle down a little due to the vinegar but there is salt in it :confused: Oh well!

Trust me, you're not the only one reading ingredients on everything you can to see if it just might work. You never know, one might be the miracle product.

spend from EIGHT HOURS entirely trying to detangle a STUCK hairbrush from their hair in order to save some remaining strands and not have to go drastic and cut any hair. unfortunately i could not get it out on my own. I had to call a friend who lives across town who looked up on the net how to try and get it out. (I had a shower at eleven thirty at night, too, so this all happened at night time) I couldn't do it myself so i had to drive HALF an hour away in morning Peak hour traffic with a HAIR BRUSH STUCK IN MY HEAD so she could help. She couldn't so we eventually had to go to the hairdressers, who was FORBIDDEN to cut my hair to get it out! She was very acommodating, i thought, and did a brilliant job of getting it out, completely mutilated the brush in order to save my hair!!!! (I KNOW, for once a hairdressing story that HAS a happy ending!) Needless to say, I will NEVER EVER EVER again use a round brush in my hair, when trying to blowfry. (i rarely blowfry to begin with anyway.)

3. Start asking my DH about his "little box of essencial oils" and actually googling the names to see if I could put some drops in my coconut+shea butter mix.
4. Go out to buy hair toys when bored.
5. Make a big list of brazilian hair products to send to my friends asking them to send me - in exchange to much more expensive french perfums and make up.
6. Asking friends from Asia if they know someone coming to France to send me some oils (in exchange to some french stuff they want).
7. Spend the whole weekend (in the summer!) at home just to try for hour and hours without stop new up dos.
8. Google all the ingredients in the COs I don't know what is.
9. Google all the ingredients in all soaps/detergents/body washes/DH products that we have at home to see if can do any good.

Check every shed hair in your brush to make sure it has a follicle on the end so you can be sure it is actually from shedding as opposed to breakage. I've become a little obsessive about this recently!

Also, spend two weeks agonising over whether to buy some sticks from this site http://longhairedjewels.com/shop-hairsticks.html, decide against it because I can't really afford it, then email the seller to ask about prices for singles as opposed to pairs because that's not quite as expensive :D

THIS. I need to figure out a better way to wash my body without wetting my hair, because detangling is SUCH an ordeal. I've been guilty of becoming a touch icky before I get around to showering, since its hot and its summer, and I ride my bike to class... :whistle:

Plus my acne is flaring up on my face since my face really needs to get washed every day!! Speaking of which, do LHCers have any good tips on washing your faces without wetting your hair? What about showering without wetting your hair? I feel like a shower cap or pinning up my hair would not be adequate to keep my hair at the nape and around my forehead & ears from getting wet, especially if I'm scrubbing my face up to my forehead!!

Haven't you tried braiding your hair up for swimming? or if it was braided, haven't you tried maybe coiling up the braid(s) into a bun for safe keeping?

I feel like a shower cap or pinning up my hair would not be adequate to keep my hair at the nape and around my forehead & ears from getting wet, especially if I'm scrubbing my face up to my forehead!!


I've had this problem too! I usually have my hair in two English braids (sitting inside the bottom of the shower cap), and put the shower cap so that it covers my ears and all the edges of the hairline. For me, having my hair in braids makes it cover my hair more effectively, without covering parts of my face that I need to wash! I think the braids weigh the shower cap down in the back, making the nape of my neck less likely to get wet. Then, if all else fails, I just wash my face in the sink when I get out of the shower! XD Hopefully this helps :)

It would help if I had straight hair... unfortunately, braids would kill my curl.

Pack a bunch of various hair toys in her purse for that "just in case" moment. For instance, yesterday ( it was super hot in SD), I was having lunch with DH & while we were waiting for our food...I whipped out my hairsticks to make a Chinese bun.

How about a spa headband?

Disposable (http://www.amazon.com/Disposable-Spa-Headband-Pack-AH1051/dp/B001680Q8Q) or Reusable (http://www.sallybeauty.com/headband/SBS-260650,default,pd.html)

They don't have as much tension as a "workout" style headband, so less likely to pull out your curls...

OoOo that was a good idea. I like that they also have ones with velcro, so I don't have to worry about squishing my curls and stretching them as I try to get a headband on... I can be nice and gentle :)

This one (http://www.amazon.com/Microfiber-Headband-Sand-count-AH6001S/dp/B0017H86MY) is even microfiber, which is super gentle on hair.

spend from EIGHT HOURS entirely trying to detangle a STUCK hairbrush from their hair in order to save some remaining strands and not have to go drastic and cut any hair. unfortunately i could not get it out on my own. I had to call a friend who lives across town who looked up on the net how to try and get it out. (I had a shower at eleven thirty at night, too, so this all happened at night time) I couldn't do it myself so i had to drive HALF an hour away in morning Peak hour traffic with a HAIR BRUSH STUCK IN MY HEAD so she could help. She couldn't so we eventually had to go to the hairdressers, who was FORBIDDEN to cut my hair to get it out! She was very acommodating, i thought, and did a brilliant job of getting it out, completely mutilated the brush in order to save my hair!!!! (I KNOW, for once a hairdressing story that HAS a happy ending!) Needless to say, I will NEVER EVER EVER again use a round brush in my hair, when trying to blowfry. (i rarely blowfry to begin with anyway.)
:cheese:PARTY PARTY PARTY!!!!!! the cheese says PARTY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, once I had to do the same to a friend of mine. She was having her wedding in a few months so she didn't want to cut her hair at all. I had to cut off all the spikes of the round brush one by one. It took at least 3 hours. :)

Can't you just adjust the shower head below your face? Or it would be even better to get a shower hose, that way my hair never gets wet. As for the scrubbing: I do it at the sink in front of the mirror and only my babyhairs get wet.

Nope, not if I want to wear it down after I get out of the shower. The splashing above my forehead and at the nape of my neck really messes with my curls, and it can look limp in the very front when I let down my hair (which sucks, because I am the most concerned with the hair that frames my face.)

I haven't gotten to read to the end of the thread, so forgive me if someone already addressed the facial washing thing, but I don't wash my face in the shower. I wash my face after I brush my teeth so that I can make sure the facial cleanser doesn't touch my hair. Since I use separate washcloths for face vs body anyway, its very easy. Once I'm out of the shower my face is nicely steamed and I put on my moisturizer then.

You roll your hair up in your car window and not realize it until you turn your head.

My driver's side window is temperamental. I have to open the door, stand up and push on one side of it to get it to roll up without it going up crooked. Occasionally, a few strands of my hair will get caught if I'm not paying attention.

I just leaned forward and awkwardly said, "um, I really like to brush my own hair and I'll need a wide tooth comb and some biosilk." She didn't really know how to take it, but she watched as I combed and conditioned and she said she thought I was "overdoing it". I found a new hairdresser :)

Also, when I watch Ever After, I go into a "do everything I can to condition my hair and micro trim it and massage my scalp and BBB tonight" because Drew Barrymore's hair is SO long in that movie and it inspires me *:D*

I picked up 8 plastic disposable shower caps at the dollar store. Before I got them, I used to just pin my hair out of the way when I didn't want to wash it, but the front and nape would always get a bit damp from washing my face and back. I also use the caps when I CWC - on the final condition, I clip it up then cover it w/ the cap so the conditioner doesn't get rinsed out to early. I just rinse them out and reuse them, rather than throwing them away. With the cap, I haven't noticed too much problem with the hair around the cap getting horribly wet.


And - to contribute to the thread in general - just this AM I was contemplating buying a pair of hair scissors to keep in my desk at work, just in case I found a really nasty split end, that way I wouldn't be tempted to cut it with my normal scissors.

That sounds terrible! I've never had a stylist be anything but gentle with my hair, even if they aren't CG stylists. It's very 'balls-y' of you to take charge and leave the hairdresser. Definitely a good call.

Thanks for the tip, and omgosh, I just did the same thing with the scissors!! I was sitting in class and began noticing 'white dots' in my hair. I thought, maybe these are just particles of dust, or dandruff or something? So I tried to pull the white stuff out by sliding my thumb & forefinger over the hair strand.... Terrible idea!! The end of the hair strands would break at the white dots into these little pieces! :bigeyes: I went to CVS that very afternoon to get scissors so I could attend to them when I got home.

...corrupt his/her family, friends, and SO to the LHC ways. :) I totally got my BF to like SLS-free shampoo. He also likes how his hair is after I put coconut oil on it.

Same here! My SO mixes a little oil into his SLS-free shampoo before applying, and he loves it. Who knew?!

I've got another one.

Only an LHCer would hang out at the knitting section of craft stores and/or knitting shops to find nifty needles to double as hair-sticks. I'm a knitter - and whenever I find myself by the needles, I ALWAYS look for new sticks for my hair. :D

... haunt estate sales specifically in search of dear departed little old ladies' stashes of knitting needles. Sorry you lost Grandma, folks, but SCORE!! :cheese:

That is SO true. I'm always disappointed when I check out our local antique stores and can't find hair sticks, pins, or combs. Seriously - who is buying those suckers, anyway?

And here's another one. Only an LHCer would sit on the couch w/ their SO and S&D while watching TV/movie and stay up for HOURS because you might find another split end!
