    Default Protective of your hair

    I've never noticed this about myself until now. I figure this is because my hair is longer then it has ever been before, and I am more protective about it.

    When I am not wearing my hair up, I usually always wear it down my back. I recently took a long trip, through crowded airports and new surroundings... I had it up most of the time, but when I had it down, I kept all of it to one side in front of me to keep an eye on it. I know I'm not the only one with that fear that someone could just come up and do something. Have you noticed yourself being protective of your hair? I'm not usually like this in my normal surroundings, but my hair is a lot longer then the last time I traveled. My hair lingered at my waist for years, and I never thought too much about it. But now since it has grown to tail bone, and I have changed my routine, the way I think of my hair has changed a lot.

    When my hair gets really long, my worry will always be that someone will come up behind me and chop it off.

    This is not necessarily an irrational fear.

    Those poor women!

    I'm protective of my hair around some people/places, but not around others. A few months ago, a fellow student cut off about a 6" chunk of my hair wile we were on a camping trip. Fortunately, it was from underneath in the back, and isn't noticeable. Boy, was I mad though! Just the thought that someone would do that to ALL of your hair makes my skin crawl...

    That is so mean ! why did he do this ??




    My hair is not really long or special yet, so I'm not protective of others... but I am protective in general. As in not rubbing against the car seat with my hair (and not touching it if possible), being gentle when I comb, etc. I could say that I am "conscious" of my hair, while I wasn't at all before deciding to grow it long and take care of it.

    Whoa! What? Oooo.... I'd be mad...
    Tailbone, with deliciously oily strands...hmm...I should probably take a picture with clean hair. At some point. Next stop, classic! And maybe some henna...

    I am not worried about anyone doing anything to my hair. I am worried about what I do to myself!

    I am really careful when getting into and out of the car. . .ur, now.

    And I am super careful to move my hair out of the way when I carry anything to not get it caught underneath. . .my purse, for example.

    Have to be mindful to not let my hair dip down or get flicked into anything too. . .like the stove, cat box etc. lol

    I've started wearing my silk sleep cap on when I watch TV. My hair keeps getting caught in the pillows of our leather sofa.

    I really just need to keep my hair put up. lol

    I'm more worried about the ashes from someone's cigarette blowing into my hair and setting it alight! At a concert I have almost had this happen to me (but it missed my hair and burnt a small hole in my top!) Scary o.O;;

    I'm so pleased other people have this phobia (well, I think our hair is perfectly safe most of the time!) of some random person coming up and snipping all our hair off! It's not something I think about much, but sometimes - such as when I've been waiting AGES at a bus stop! - my mind wanders off and starts thinking about awful phobia things like this.

    Mind you, I also wonder about stuff like "Why doesn't electricity just leak out of wall sockets?" (But my husband sighed and explained that one to me!)

    I am not worried about anyone cutting my hair, but I hate it when people touch it.
    Sometimes when I am at work at my desk, and co-workers would come up and touch my ponytail, etc. Makes me feel very uneasy.
