    I'm really into houseplants and have about 150 currently. We are always trying to find clever ways to display them and keep them from taking over the house. My husband hung a cute, antique ladder in my kitchen by the bay window and I have about 20 plants hanging from chains with hooks. My ceilings are very tall so I have to climb on a step ladder to take them down and carry them to the sink to water and yesterday was that day. The day before I went to the eye doctor and got mono vision contacts (one eye for close, one eye for distance). They are making me dizzy so I'm wearing them around the house trying to adapt before driving or going out in them. Welllll, I was on the ladder removing the last plant and one of the hooks got caught in my hair which was pulled back in a tight spock bun. The hooks are medium sized so it had a nice chunk of hair. I had a plant in one hand and reached up to remove the hook from my hair and lost my balance. I was literally hanging by my hair for a few seconds, and I heard a horrible sound (my hair breaking) and was able to grab the ladder and get my footing. It was very painful, I honestly though I had ripped my scalp open. Several follicles bled and I lost a gob of hair, probably the equivalent of six months of shed hairs. I had to ice my scalp because it was so swollen and painful but thankfully it's feeling little better today. From now on, I will put on a buff or satin sleep cap when working around these hooks.

    Lesson learned!
    Ouch. That sounds very painful and I hope your scalp recovers soon. A good idea to use a sleep cap to prevent it from happening again.

    Always keep a claw clip handy before these messy jobs, that way you can quickly throw the braid up real quick!!! I have to do that for my ponytails and my hair isn't even that long yet!! It still manages to get into EVERYTHING
    Halfway between CBL and APL!!!

    I have accidently spit on my braid tassel a couple of times (when spitting out toothpaste or mouthwash) because the braid suddenly has fallen forward in the way of the sink at the exact wrong second, haha.

    I tend to toss it up into a quick bun with a hairstick if needing it out of the way for a significant amount of time or I don't want to tuck it down the back of my shirt. Sometimes, depending on what I'm doing, I can feel it starting to slip from my back and straighten up real quick to keep it from falling.

    Oh yeah. I forgot about that one...
    Putting it in my signature because I have to say it so often:
    Do what works for your hair, not what other people say is "right" or "wrong." If it works for you, it's not wrong. If it doesn't work for you, it's not right.
