    Default Biggest hair problem (or annoyance)?

    Is there one thing about your hair that you consider to be your biggest problem or annoyance at the moment? If not.. well.. I envy you . But, I know for me, I have the biggest problem with the uneven-healthiness of my hair. The top half is shiney, healthy, and soft, and the bottom half is.. well.. dead, from an old perm. I feel like I will NEVER get the dead hair off.. that is, unless I cut it all off at once, but that would be going against my length goal D:. That's my biggest peeve about my hair at the moment.

    I can think of lots of common hair peeves for the poll.. but if yours is not on there, please do still share .

    Interestingly, the best and the most annoying aspects of my hair are one and the same! I can't stand how it just slides out of updos, braids, etc. in seconds . . . yet I know its slippery nature is what keeps it so tangle-free and sleek looking (^(oo)^)v

    That's a positive way to look at it . Mine used to do that.. it would drive me crazy, but I never did stop to think that the reason it was being so 'stubborn' was because it was healthy and sleek.

    You didn't have shrinkage as an option. That is my #1 pet peeve about my hair. Next to shrinkage my hair is dry, dry, dry, thirsty, frizzy and...dry.

    Sorry I left it out, but I'll be honest, it's only because I've never heard the phrase 'shrinkage' and I don't know what it is XD. I guess it has something to do with the hair.. shrinking?

    I said frizz but my hair is getting better in that way as it becomes healthier so hopefully it is an issue that won't last once I have the preLHC damage grown out

    Secondly, it seems to grow very slowly. But... that could just be because I have been doing trims to remove damage. :/.. no clue.

    Stoopid layers make make my braids and buns sprout hairs all over the place. It will be years before they all grow out; the shortest one is just barely brushing my shoulders.

    Aww that's never fun . Mine did that a lot after my perm, I lost a lot of hair. It's recovered itself thankfully, but I remember wanting to cry when cleaning out my drain.

    Shrinkage is the term for people who have wavy/wurly/curly hair, which is when hair is incredibly longer wet than it looks when it dries. :/ Arg, it's annoying!

    Annoyingly, my hair gets greasy fairly quickly at the roots, but also somehow manages to be quite dry on the ends unless I'm careful to do a lot of moisturizing . . .

    Also, since it's been raining nonstop for the last week or so, it's been incredibly frizzy and lank. Why?!
