View Full Version : hello hairy people

October 6th, 2008, 09:06 AM
wow, what a site. i never knew there was an actual community for this sort of thing.
anyways, i'm kristin. been growing my hair for a little over 16 years now. it is down past my butt, not sure how many inches. pretty curly towards the bottom and wavier up at the top. it has never been dyed, blowdryed maybe 15-20 times, and i brush it about twice a month. it's so easy! it just kind of stays in little clumps.
someone will have to point me to an abbreviation guide or something because i don't know what y'all are talkig about, lol.
and i'll post pics as soon as i figure that out too.
nice to be here, hope to talk hair with y'all soon

Nice to meet you, you are going to try the sticky thread at the top of the page. It has links to all the important stuff like the abbreviations and the hair typing system.

Welcome! Can't wait to see a pic of your hair. You will find loads of tips on here. So enjoy!!!

Welcome aboard. I lurked for awhile and had a lot of fun trying to figure out the acronyms on this board. I think it has more than any other forums I've reviewed. By the time I figured most of them out, I discovered they are in an "article" on this website.

Towards the top of the page there are various selections, such as: Home, User CP, All Albums, etc. Within those choices is "Articles". Select that and you'll find lots of info about the website. On the right side of the page is LHC Terms and Abbreviations.

You'll learn so much by reading those informative write-ups. I really enjoyed them.

All I see is a line of code. But welcome. See you around.

October 6th, 2008, 03:05 PM
Welcome, but a picture is mandatory! seeming as you have my dream length hair!

hmm, i thought i did it right? anyone see what did wrong?

Ooh what pretty braids! My tassel tip isn't as far down as your elastic yet.

It looks like the URL is so long that when you pasted it, a space got inserted. Can you clip parts of it until it fits and see if it still works? Or if the space is supposed to be there, replace it with "%20" (which is a URL code for a space).

Welcome squirmingcoil!

The image should be posted on another image hosting site to be viewed. The link will not work any more.

"As of June 2008, Snapfish stopped its image hosting service, which means images stored on Snapfish can no longer be linked to other websites"

That sure didn't work for me, it was just a small red rectangle.

Welcome to the boards, it's a good place. :)

October 20th, 2008, 05:13 PM
Lets see if I can do any better with getting it here

October 20th, 2008, 05:57 PM
How strange, i even switched computers to make sure it would come up right elsewhere...

October 20th, 2008, 06:12 PM

But welcome anyway!
