A couple of our cashiers at work have at least midback length hair or longer. I am always looking to catch them with their hair down. The first one doesn't do it very often. She just about always buns her hair. She's a light blonde. The other almost always either ponytails or wears her hair down. She has medium brown hair. I use to never pay this much attention to hair. I can blame this forum for that.:D

That could work the other way too. The said bump may potentially damage your follicles especially if you do it against a semi-sharp suface.;) I know I am hair obsessed now.

You know you're an LHC-er if... Your hair gets caught in the freezer?? Haha, this happened to me today, and I instantly thought of this list. :p

What ~really~ happened is...I was in the kitchen preparing dinner when my husband dropped by for a kiss. He lost his balance, opened the freezer door when trying to use it to catch himself, and trapped some of my locks in the freezer when the door closed. :blushing: I swear, we are not newlyweds! LOL

Oh and when you overhear the girl behind you in English class talk about how she is going to dye her hair black tonight and you quickly warn her about PPD and offer to henndigo her hair for free if she will buy the ingredients and you then realize the whole class has gone silent and everyone is looking at you like you are an alien.

The show in question was a Monk rerun, so detective comedy-drama in this case, but the murder weapon was a hairtoy, and the suspect's hair wasn't long enough to use it, but another character's was, and yep, that was the killer.

I love detective dramas, too, and this should be a good year for NCIS. To stay on topic, Abby has some fun hair toys.

When your new idea of a hair compliment is going up to that blonde 1a with hip length hair and telling her "You have the bluntest hemline I've ever seen!"

But no, I didn't, because I had never seen her before in my life and it would have involved interuppting her conversation XD

Of course, it's also possible that one would cut their hair post-murder. To throw off the police and all, since they are SOOOOooo aware of such things. :eyebrows:

You know you're an LHCer when you wonder if anyone thinks it's weird that you're buying 5 bottles of conditioner and no shampoo.

Very true, but in this case the suspect's hair legnth was consistent. Although if there were a long-haired detective on the case, they'd be the one to spot it.


You know you're an LHC-er if you buy five bottles of conditioner and ask "why?" when the friend who is with you suggests you get five bottles of shampoo as well.

Aaaand you keep on talking, in hopes that they will understand/learn something new!
When you get annoyed if a character in a TV show doesn't put her hair up when she's going on "raids".
You cringe when you see how people wash hair on Jerseylicious, but keep watching because it's sorta funny.
You constantly are aware of other peoples' hair, and often feel like saying that you like it, but don't want to be creepy.
You get excited when your hair classification changes.
You start knitting specifically because winter is coming up, and you don't have any hats that will fit on your head with all of your hair piled up in it.
You get confused on how long someones' hair is when you're reading a book and they describe that someone has "long hair"- Real World long hair, or LHC long hair??? :confused:
You spend way too long on YT looking at updo's.
Then you get SUPER excited when torrinpaige posts a new video, but you then get slightly depressed, because her hair's so much longer than yours- then you get hair envy! :D
You shop for hair toys, even though your hair isn't really "that long".
When you try an SMT on your horse's mane and it works!
You then immediately think of trying it on your Weenie Dog- but realize that he won't stay still for that.
You then go and put coconut oil on your Chihuahua, because she let's you put that on her.

If there was an exam in LHC stuff you would pass with the top mark and honours.

You have more hair toys then shoes and handbags, or in the case of men tools and toy cars.

You dont allow anyone borrow your favourite wide toothed comb.

You have a hair recipe book that others think is a spell book.

For those of us with bald issues, you are tempted to grow the hair you have just to see how long it would take to get to your ultimate goal, even ifs only half a head of hair. You also have more hair toys then your haired friends even though you can only use them on your styling head.

You can sit for hours just going through your hair toy box, and sighing.

You know the going best price for every hair toy, shampoo, conditioner etc.

You know which cupboards and electrical equipment to be careful of when your hair is loose.

When you go to see a hairdresser for a trim or treatment you interrigate them for hours before even making the appointment but then cancel it and do it yourself with better results.

Your You Tube favourites is full of every hair tutorial channel in existence.

When your feeling a little low you head for LHC and know your feel better very quickly.

you do nothing but think about my hair at times since I joined. I touch my hair more in a day now than I would use to in five years. I am constantly shifting my bangs out of my eyes. I am constantly just running my hands through my hair especially the sides and back of my head just to see how it feels. I like the feel of my hair on the skin for some reason when it used to bug me as I was first growing it. I have got where I am worse than most women even are with touching my hair. It has turned into an obsession. I have an obsessive personality so the two go hand and hand.

You know you are and LHCer when you go over in your mind the reason why in Tangled that her hair that was cut as a baby stayed short rather than accept a "It didnt grow anymore" theory that is tossed around.


My take:
1) [Practical] Disney did not want to animate a long random strand of brown hair among the golden locks because it would have been too difficult and would have made it seem "dirty" or "flawed" in some way.

2) [Storyline] Mother Gothel told Rapunzel it was from a time in her life when people tried to cut her hair and use it for their own gain and thus the dark streak could have been traumatic for Rapunzel to see as a constant reminder and she kept it cut and out of her sight or Mother Gothel herself trimmed it.

Anywho, my Rapunzel fan-art shows her with brown hair as if it were a few years after the Alice Cullen cut of shame, or blonde as if they cut never happened.

Creatureling
January 26th, 2012, 10:09 PM
LittleOrca, I thought about that too! I kinda thought that maybe the brown hair grew at a normal rate and wasn't super strong like the magical golden hair, so Rapunzel never learned how to care for it properly and cut off all the damage.

I hope that now her hair is all normal, she'll learn how to care for her new hair type and grow out that haircut. I'll guess we'll find out in the sequel.

One girl wears her hair in a neat cinnamon bun that she clips the top part into a tails up and she still has lots of hair left over that forms a mini ponytail over the cinnamon bun. Also her hair is really thick, shiny, and healthy. I always stare at her head... haha I sound so creepy!

When you watch a horror movie and the most scary part is when the monster, a woman who had been made by a doctor in the lab, who have beautiful, black hair at classical lengths get introduced to society by her maker and he have cut her hair to a shoulder length modern style.

When you are watching an anime about giant robots fighting monsters from space and the thing you find most unrealistic is all the action the long haired mech pilot is managing to do without getting hindered by her extremely long hair only held in her ponytail. You know realistically it would tangle into the mech controls.

When you go to relive yourself and you have to check that you have not accidentally dropped your ponytail in the bowl before you start to go about your natural needs.

I CWC with shampoo bars.

So I jump in the shower, take off my shower cap, lather up the conditioner that has been sitting on my head, rinse, use my poo bar, go to grab the ACV.......and it's not there.

Utter confusion. Look out the shower to the counter, nope. Step on the bathmat, look under the sink, not there either. Briefly consider skipping the ACV rinse. Remembers the horrible state my scalp was in awhile back, and I'm not 100% sure that the ACV rinse is the reason the itchy dandruff/sebum plugs and sores are gone, or if it is the sulfate free regimen, a combination of both. However my regimen works, so why change it. Ponders another moment while shivering and dripping, wraps towel around self and streaks to kitchen with the 1 liter cup I use for my rinse and searches for the ACV.

DH must have used it to cook with, it's in the pantry. Dash back to the shower, and continue as normal.

When bleach scares you...

When you spot a new shampoo in the store, and before purchasing, go home and google unfamiliar ingredients, or better yet, post a question on LHC!

When you hate seeing straight hair when you can see that it is very thick and would normally be full of gorgeous curls. And the owner of that hair probably thinks they look terrible... Thank you LHC for being full of proud curlies!

When all the neighborhood kids call you the "Braid Lady" and show up right as your shift ends so you can do their hair. And their mothers' don't even think this is odd anymore...

When your friends come up to you with a yoga magazine, brandish a phot of a model with a funky braid/bun/updo and ask "Will this stay in for chopping wood?" And next thing you know you've got her tipped upside down with BBB in her hand and two hairsticks in your own as you try to figure it out....

.... When watching a friend or a stranger brush their hair, you wince every time you hear hairs snapping one after another, because it causes actual, if just slight, pain in your ears and heart.

When you roll your eyes as someone says, "Your hair is NOT clean unless you shampoo and condition every day! GUH," because you know that after being in LHC for long enough, that is far from the truth for most people.

When you find yourself rambling to someone about your new hair routine, not thinking until later that you might've came off strange and kind of gross talking about not having used any products, including shampoo and conditioner, for almost two weeks. Huh... OH WELL :D

When you're patiently explaining to someone that dying their hair regularly with industry strength hair dye isn't actually solving their oily scalp issue but making it worse, though give up when they act like you know nothing, even though they've actually know nothing beyond what they've been doing to their hair themselves. *sigh*

When you get annoyed after someone tells you to cut your hair and donate it, even more so when they try and tell you you're only being selfish. However, feeling some satisfaction when they go quiet after you tell them what kind of hair CAN be used for wigs, and that you wouldn't be a good candidate for donation anyway. BWAHAHA

When you realize you have only one bottle of shampoo that hasn't been touched for months yet have gone through a family sized bottle of conditioner in a month, and still have three more hiding under your sink.

When you find yourself actually knowing how to adapt a basic hair routine to someone's hair type, lifestyle, and hair product choices!

When you DO actually find yourself quietly examining the girl's waist-length hair next to you and notice that even though it was pretty from afar, it's actually riddled with split ends. And thus, you are tempted to kindly suggest she could do with a trim, but afraid you might offend her. lol

When you suggest to someone that they try CO washing, only to have them give you this look: o______o Ugh, you mean wash my hair with just conditioner? Conditioner can't wash your hair!

...and I thought this generation was meant to be ACCEPTING and TOLERANT of different ways of living. :rolleyes: Selectively, I guess.

ANYWAY

When someone compliments your hair and asks how you got it to be so nice, then hesitate in telling them. LOL ;)

When you tell someone that they can probably get rid of their oiliness by stretching out their washes, and when they freak out about having oily hair, you are unnerved by it.

When you find a YT video that shows "Different ways to wash you hair (even though a lot of those ways are sketchy and damaging)," then read the comments which are littered with people raging mindlessly about how only shampooing is going to clean hair, and in response you revolt by putting up a kind comment about how you are WO and your hair is clean and has never been happier. lol

When you're on the bus, you don't flip out when the girl in front of you accidentally flips their hair onto your book, and just push the hair away. :D

When you watch a YT hair tutorial and the girl brushing her hair says, "*le sigh* I know, my hair is soooo long, you guys *rips through just-part-shoulders hair with plastic brush*," and all you can do is gape in horror.

Doing 2-3 1/4" or 1-2 1/2" trims yourself a year is what should be done to get good growth and to prevent damage.
