    Default YouTube "hair gurus"

    Is it just me or does everyone else get "how to grow you hair fast" videos in their suggestions on YouTube and watch them out of curiosity?

    I find it humorous how many of these people are saying "oh don't use heat on your hair or it will stop growing!"... yeah, because that's totally how that works! And then they proceed to show a flat iron and curling iron, and this straightener brush, and this...WHAT

    Or "I only use high-end products, I don't use low-end things like *snotty voice* Pantene, it just coats your hair!" ... yeah. That's what silicones do!! and high-end, or low end silicones will do that!

    And lastly, "I take biotin and it made my hair grow four inches in one month!", if that's the case... you should really see a doctor, as that's simply not possible without an underlying problem. Ugh!

    I can't help but laugh at these videos now that I've been on LHC so often... Hair is so individual that these "facts" (or myths as we call them here) are just...no. Please tell me I'm not the only who who audibly rolls their eyes at all of this.

    Especially the claims on growth rate are getting more and more ridiculous, fueled by people who leave crap comments that "it actually worked" for them... Lmao bye!!
    I simply click the not interested button if stuff like that shows up in hope to get these youtubers out my suggestions and get more of those that are actually interesting and innovative.
    I guess we have a few LHC favorites that everyone likes, for example Torrin Paige who shows alot of buns and updos, BeautyKLove testing diy products and curling methods or those who educating people on ethnic hairtypes that are different from the advertisement "ideal".
    I personally love to watch good coloring and heat styling tutorials although i don't need any of them ( i do use heat but there's inly so many new things i can do with a flatiron).

    How can I control my life when I can't even control my hair!

    For me, as a hairstylist, it all sounds even crazier. But what really makes my skin crawl is actually when there's footage of them violently brushing their wet hair with the worst kind of brush there is! It makes me shiver!

    It bothers me when I see those "professional" hair styling videos where they make a bun that could easily be secured with just a hair stick or two, but then they keep it up by using a hundred bobby pins

    I saw a youtube tutorial by tresemme (I think that was it) for a french twist and that guy teased part of her hair with a comb so much that it looked completely matted. I actually gasped when I saw that. Who would do that to their hair? I can't imagine the nightmare it is to try and get those tangles out.

    I know, right? I've seen a lot of tutorials like that, and usually then I don't look at anything else on the channel.

    The model had really gorgeous red hair too, and by the look of her freckles and complexion it was probably natural. I can't imagine scrunching my hair to that degree. I still cringe when twisting my hair for cinnamon buns.

    What surprises me is that some people's hair can really take that kind of abuse without causing too much damage.

    It is amazing how much abuse some people's hair can take. I see girls here who straighten, dye, and wear their hair down on motorbikes. And they use narrow toothed combs. And they still have hair!
