    Default First hair compliment from a stranger!

    Hi! I've been away from the forum for a while because I have a new job with a shared office, so spend less time on the web. I'm back today to crow about my first unsolicited hair comment from a stranger! I was getting dressed at the locker room of the pool after swimming, and I was blow-drying my hair (I know. .. I know, but I don't like going out with soaking wet hair.) There was an older lady nearby who said that she used to have long hair when she was younger and that mine was "just lovely." I told her she made my day, and that surprised her! To me, it means my hair not only looks well cared-for (despite the blow-frying, lol) but also that it's long enough that it's out of the ordinary. At big landmark for me!

    Nice! Especially from someone who used to be a longhair. That says more, somehow.

    Yes, like there's an understanding and respect between you. She understands more how much work it takes you to keep it fab.

    Oh, and if I were you I'd have been blowdrying too!

    How wonderful! it means alot when you take such good care of it and then someone else notices it

    Last weekend I was bending over and combing my hair out with a large tooth comb. My mother was there and said "I just can't look away from you combing out your long pretty hair". Yes, it was my mom, but it felt nice that my hair was comment-worthy.


    a new journey begins
