November 6th, 2010, 03:09 PM
Well knock me over with a feather! I was out having a drink last night with my friend when this woman came up and said " I hope you don't think im weird or anything but just wanted to say ive never seen hair so long before, its gorgeous how long did it take you to grow it that long?" I thanked her and told her I was coming up to 5 years, which shocked her she thought it had took twice as long!

Thought id share this with you all, it put a huge smile on my face, i am only at waist which is relatively short but it made my day!:D

That's a nice compliment! It's always nice when people are appreciative of long hair.

Congrats Jojo. That's a nice compliment. It feels so good when all the effort we put into our hair is appreciated by a stranger.

Congratulations! That's always nice to have, people forget how random compliments can just make your day.

yes I was so shocked I thought she was going to tell me I had toilet roll hanging from my skirt or something! and it is lovely when you get a compliment off a stranger.

Way to grow, Jojo!!

Aww that was nice of her. I always try and give compliments to strangers when I find something that's looks nice on them or what not. I know how it brightens my day when I get a random compliment from someone I don't know and I want to do the same for other people too!

That is just wonderful! And deserved. Your hair is gorgeous.

I had a coworker tell me that my hair was so pretty down. Because it is up or in a braid every day she did not know how long it really is. LOL.
