    Default More rant at a late night, but just wanna see if I'm not alone when...

    When you're in a place and you have supah long hair and then people comment on another person's hair and you just feel like a joke because you stand there with your ponytail that crosses your whole back and people just go to a person with mid-back length ''Wow you're hair's pretty long''. And you're just like ''Hhh! Hmph! ?<M&CHfbeio''

    Or when someone as a greater length and they keep getting comments while you go invisible.

    Haaah. I kinda am starting to keep all the hair enthusiast for myself now cause I just feel like a freak to be so into this. I mean I'm not the only one it's just that (I think I read that somewhere) it just feels awkward when a HairGrower goes like full passionate hair talk with a person I dunno about the rest but I'm starting to feel really ridiculous. XD I don't feel ridiculous with you guys of course. It's just that like.

    I'm this random person that got her hair badly cut just before 8th grade and that started searching for tips and tricks since then...

    and now I'm kinda unsure about how to act around people.

    but if you ask me I have this huge goal and dedication for... hair growth.

    I just feel so weird from like an imagined point of view of others. But I mean, I'm grateful to have this goal that gives me challenges and opportunities to accomplish myself. Still, I think I'll keep it as an obscure part of myself from now on, so I can feel less like a freak.

    Something similar that bugs me: I've taken the time to do a fancy braided style, go out to run errands, and nobody says a word. I whip in a quick french braid to keep the wind from blowing hair into my face, and collect compliments right and left.

    Yes!! I completely get this! I try not to let it get to me since my hair is not supposed to just be for garnering compliments, but it does bug me.

    Yeah... I know what you mean here ... And Spidermom, whilst I don't do braids , I do try different buns. I've realized to everyone other than people in the LHC, a bun is a bun. No one notices the differing loops or twists. I expect it's largely the same with braids. With beautiful hair sticks I get "oh you've got a pen in your bun?" I may as well go to office works and get a few cheapies. I'm learning to just do it and enjoy it for my own pleasure though. Not worry to much what others think or say. Sure I have hair envy sometimes but I try to learn from those with similar hair and texture to my own and not those whose thickness and texture I will never have. I look at growth and improvement in my hair, comparing it to itself. I'm starting a hair journal this year and going to celebrate my own successes. It may be something to consider creaturebailey? We're all here cheering each other on so find threads with similarly "folicalled" folk and join in!

    Hi there! I too am a random person who got a horrific haircut in 6th grade and that's how I found the boards as well XD
    By Googleing tips for growing hair quick, and now look at me, this became my main hobby

    I too have become obsessed and hysterical about my hair. All my life I've been told by proffessionals that I could never have very long hair because my hair is so fine and fragile. At 49 years of age I found the LHC and now have waist length hair and am growing slowly towards hip.

    CreatureBailey, you've come to the right place.

    Lol, CreatureBailey^^ welcome to the hair freaks place !

    I just would like to say that hair is a pleasant hobby, and growing together with the encouragement of other hair lovers is great fun. But hey, "it's just hair", lol. It should not turn into a competition. Not everybody is blessed by super hair genes, and having dream hair has never made a person better. I mean that we cannot define ourselves by comparing our hair to the others. We don't "accomplish ourselves" by growing our hair out. We accomplish ourselves by becoming independent both from people's compliments (= we need to grow amazing hair to feel worthy) and from people's criticisms (= we refrain to be what we would like/need to be because we are afraid of the others' judgement). So take it easy concerning the other people's opinion and enjoy your hair as a natural thing and personal choice. Everybody here is more or less hair obsessed, so it's kind of relaxing to chat about our common obsession without feeling too weird !... ^^

    I think this is a very wise attitude !...

    Just wanted to say, you aren't a freak because you like your hair and want to get complements. Everybody likes getting noticed!
