Okay...nobody ever compliments my hair. (Except on here! People here are encouraging, kind and I just generally lurve LHC. :D )

Anyway...my father-in-law was over the other day and he said to me, "You know, you should really wear your hair down more...you look beautiful!"

Well knock me over with a feather! God bless henna. :cheese:

Never mind that.

Your hair looks gorgeous - and lighter.

The compliment was loooong overdue!

Thanks so very much, ladies.

Henna makes it thicker. Henna isn't for everybody but it's a godsend for me. I'm very happy.

I'm really glad now that I did all the honey-ings. That worked well for lightening. I can relax now and just re-henna as roots come in...whew. And just watch it grow. :)

I'll bet people compliment your hair inside their heads where you can't hear them all the time.

I get compliments on my hair a lot, but then I tend to state, loudly, that I'm easily swayed by flattery and vain about my hair.

:D I am utterly shameless.

GlennaGirl, I am so happy that you got a real life compliment. Especially given the source, it must have felt really good. :)

Cool! And when you said "God Bless Henna" for some odd reason I got a picture of our Northern Brothers and Sisters singing "O Canada" and was thinking we need to make up a Henna National Anthem!! :)

Awww how sweet!!! A girl who works here always says I need to keep my hair down because it looks so pretty :lol:

That's great!!! Your hair deserves such a lovely compliment!

P.S. I really like your avatar.

Excellent, Glenna! I'm so glad he said that. Now just relax and keep growing your pretty hair.

Okay, lemme get a few at a time! When I hit "reply" a bunch of responses come up but not all...let's see if I can do this correctly...you'd think that after all this time, I'd have figured this out! I'll probably end up just opening a second window and scrolling down.

((walkinglady)) Thank you! Gettin' that warm fuzzy feeling. :D

MemSahib, oh, I have long admired your hair. I appreciate the compliment and it means a lot.

Xandergrammy, thanks! I like the avatar too...it was on a free avatars site but I can't remember which one. But, what cool artwork, right?

Sana, ha ha, yes, that is my littlest guy, making a guest appearance! Or sort of a "Where is Waldo". I didn't even notice him in the picture! You've got sharp eyes. That is E, who will be two on Monday. Yes, he is, to my embarrassment, sucking on a bottle in the pic. (Well, he is my baby, after all...last one, sigh!) Can you see that he's twisting his hair? When he can't twist my hair--I'm surprised I have any left--he twists his own. He has a "thing" about hair. Maybe more so than I!

LOL..u probably have a long haired guy in the making:D And yeah I know how difficult it is to wean kids from their bottles:rolleyes: My DD is 15mnths old & she was just weaned off it. But the moment she sees a kid with a bottle, she runs & grabs it:eek:

ktani: Yep, it really did lighten with the honey. I know honey doesn't work for 100% of the population, and it takes patience, but I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind taking some time and who is afraid of damage. I'm glad now that I tried it.

Thanks, ((Riot Curl))! I love that username, I smile every time I read it. The name draws a picture.

Thanks so much, ((poolsoflaughter))! Was the style in your avatar done at the Renaissance Faire? Our hair is about the same length and I'm getting ideas... :D

((coppercurls)) Thank you. Oh, those curls, sigh.

Spidermom, I have never thought of that. Thank you, dear.

Pegs...I'm so glad my wife loves my hair. :p Thank you!

Saranne, yep, exactly...and he just came out with it, no solicitation on my part...which is unusual, LOL.

Hah sana, so glad to know there's another mommy of a bottle-lover out there! And the funniest thing is that I nursed him and he absolutely refused a bottle up until the end of that time. 15 months...that is SUCH a cute age...kiss that little dear for me.

MadPirateBippy, that made me laugh because that's me all over...."So do you like my hair?" This one was unsolicited so I was shocked!

Thanks, FrannyG. Good gosh, your hair looks like golden glass. That is some incredibly shiny, smooth princess hair you've got going on over there.

Thanks, stagecoach...are you sure you're only an ii? Your hair looks so thick in your siggy.

Thank you so much, frizzinator! Your username is making me laugh. Been there!!! (And return there rather frequently.)

Thank you so much, curlsgirl. As SpiderMom will attest...I always do envy the curlies!!!!!!!!!

SheilaAnn, LOL!!!! "Oh say can you see, through a head full of mud, what so proudly we dye...in the most nat'ral of ways..."

lora, oh, doesn't it feel just great??

Thats a nice henna indigo mix. Kind of purple. A nice cool tone, which is difficult with henna. Arriving at that must have been alot of work. I have been reajusting my color also. Sometimes its scary, if you don't get it right the first time. But it's all payed off for you. Congratulations.

I bet you the only reason people don't compliment you is because their too busy doing this :agape: and are speechless, your hair beautiful
