Hi all,

I went to a party yesterday and caught up with a few friends I hadnít seen in years. I received compliments on my outfit etc. but also a couple on my hair Ė about how long it was and how nice it looked and so on. It felt good because Iíd cut a lot off recently (it was past waist length when straight but now is just about w/l at the longest point).
Iíve also switched hair care regimes and gone back to a leave-in with cones and it seems to have done the trick Ė my hair looks pretty good! Itís coarse and curly and Iím soooo glad that the serum I use doesnít relax all the curls. ; )

Just wanted to share and ask you if youíve received any hair compliments lately.

Mine are usually from older/drunker type of guys who like the color. :? Or occasionally the employees at Sally's.

yes!! I have been recently been getting compliments from friends about how healthy it looks. I am now listening to my hair instead of doing what I think would help. it has been talking to me for years but I just wasn't listening.

My mother gave me one this weekend. A compliment coming from her is a big deal for me because she's usually telling me I should do this or that to change it, but not this time. This time she said she loved the curls and the natural hi-lights the sun has given my hair. Felt warm and fuzzy all day.

Every now and then I get from some of the girls in my circle of friends "wow, your hair has gotten really long" or "I hate you cos your hair is so long".

And I love it. Its good to know they think my hair is long when on here I feel like my hair is still short in comparison to some of the uber long lengths out there :o

I sometimes also get the "pretty hair" or "shiny hair" compliments from my friends as well.

Yes, I do! I admit it! :p I've recently had a rash of teenagers compliment me on my hair, and boy it felt good. It's more than enough inspiration to keep it growing.

I get them on the rare day when I wear it down to work. Most of the time it's bunned, but maybe once every 2-3 weeks I let it fly.

Last week I wore it down and my boss was playfully cutting on another coworker's need for complete and total attention by saying I need to stop wearing my "flowing red hair" down because when I do "I get no attention!" I took it as a compliment. =p

Lol at this remark, but hey, a compliment is a compliment eh?

Although compliments are not that common, I have had a couple from my co-workers in the last little while, and they are definitely appreciated by this old guy! It certainly makes the journey worthwhile!
