I've already seen this posted on the board several times...

Wow, that is so awesome. I would have never thought of hair as being an extension of our nerves, but it makes sense. Yay, another motivation for getting long hair!

As Amber_Maiden said, it's been posted quite a bit recently. Here (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/showthread.php?t=83495)'s one other thread on the subject, four days old.

"Scientific" isn't quite the word I'd use.

Doesn't someone post this post every week ?
I don't mean anything bad, but still.

You don't, it's ok - people just inform you that it's been discussed several times already, so mainly your thread might just die by itsef because, well, people are not going to be as enthusiasticly debating the third time around :D.

Do check out the discussion in the two similar threads, though. You're right; it's very interesting!

I don't think you can delete, but don't worry, you're not the first to start a thread that has been around a few times already ;)

I think that's a common reaction and you shouldn't take it personally. If you are not here 24/24 you can easily miss threads that others read earlier.
There are other cultures and religions too that seem to show there is connection between hair and the spiritual world/powers. Scientific or not, I found the article interesting

P.S: Similar happened to me when I was new. I was told "learn to use the search function; this has been discussed many times."

Thanks for the thread anyway, it made me see the other two threads too! :)

Interesting read, hehe... Interesting how people's perception of the article was different based on whether the 'source' was FB or 'a legit site'... :) ?

Haha, I believe I was told those exact same words on my first thread. This is the first forum I've been a part of that encourages keeping old threads alive, and using the search function.

Don't take it personally, hoopster, it's natural to not see threads if you're not on here 24/7! Thank you for pointing the other thread and the article out for me, I had missed it as well and it does look interesting.

I have read it and it certainly is very interesting.
Don't worry that others have posted it too.
It's lovely that you and others found an interesting article and were kind enough to share it.

Meh, don't take it personally. It's pretty hard to know what to search for when you get excited to have found something interesting, especially when you're new. Welcome to the boards, though! : )
