I wrote this and thought the others here might enjoy it.

The LHC is my helper.
I shall not be discontent.
It maketh me lie down on silk pillowcases;
It leadeth me beside distilled waters.
It restoreth my sheen. (Was originally "restoreth my hair".)
It leadeth me in paths of healthiness for my hair's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the blowfryers
I will fear no evil.
For TLHC is with me; my ACV, it comforteth me.
It preparest a message board before me in the presence of fellow long hairs.
It anointeth my head with oil;
My bun runneth over.
Surely S&Ds will follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in TLHC forever.

That's great! Did you come up with that? If not, where did you find it? I especially like, "it anointeth my head with oil, my bun runneth over".

Yeah, I did it myself. I'm glad you like it. The only line that is original are "It anointeth my head with oil." I really liked the "It preparest a message board before me in the presence of fellow long hairs."

Now I lay me down to sleep,
A satin pillow my hair damage free will keep.
In braided bun until i wake,
slathered in oil, for goodness sake.

Oh how fun! That's really awesome WritingPrincess! I love that you left the anointeth oil part since it fits perfectly.

And I like yours too Kirin - the rhythm is spot on!

What a great idea - I'd wear one. LHC has totally changed the way I treat my hair. Writing Princess' poem would be perfect for this :D

I LOVE this! Thank you everyone. :flower:
I thought about doing it with the Lord's Prayer, but I wasn't able to find the right words. It also seemed a little sacrilegious. I did get two lines that I liked. "Lead us not into hair salons, but deliver us from scissors."

This is fabulous! So funny and so accurate, in many ways. I love it! In fact, I'm going to send the link to this page to my mom, who is a Lutheran minister and whom I convinced last year to start growing her hair long again. I constantly mention things I read about on TLHC to her, and I know she would like this.

Let us know what she says, please.

Okay, so it's not as good as either WritingPrincess's or Kirin's, but I'll give it a shot:

(To the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star)
Long hair, long hair, lovely hair
I will treat you with much care.
SMT'ing, ACV
No more blowfrying for me!
Long hair, long hair, lovely hair
I will treat you with much care.

This is AWESOME and I would SO wear a teeshirt with this on :D (so long as it isnt white I think but maybe even if it is haha!)

Good job!
When my exams are over I might just make my own parody. Maybe with 1 Corinthians ch 13 hehe

I like Dot's! :D So I was toying with a t-shirt designing program and I came up with this.
