    Default Is your residency here a secret?

    Nobody knows about me and TLHC. I've mentioned what I've learned here to others and credited the site for the knowledge. I've referred a few people to check it out, but I've hid my involvement. No one knows I have photo albums of hair pics. No one knows I look at other members' albums and comment on their hair. You know? I'm just kind of embarrassed that I'm so into growing my hair out that I take and post pictures of it and look at others' photo albums and discuss hair care and growth. I know it's nothing to be embarrassed about, it's an interest of mine, but it's the tie to vanity (or insecurity) that I don't want others to see. Which is insecure in itself. Whatever. Anyone else hang out at TLHC in the closet?
    Maybe my worst haircut ever.

    I don't really try to hide the fact that I post here but I don't talk about it with others because they are just not interested in hair. I know they would be bored out of their minds if I started talking about sulfates and oils and how many inches my hair grew so far this year..... If I had any friends who were interested in hair or were growing their hair out I would definatly want to talk about it. Once in a while I do give people tips if they ask. I recently got my aunt hooked on coconut oil and my mom and grandma now take biotin and are really liking it.

    mostly, I only mention it in passing if I am in a conversation about hair.
    Almost there!

    Me too, because I don't think the circles I hang out with are interested in it. I talk about ideas from here and give this site the credit, and I've posted on other sites recommending this site too. I also have, twice now, recommended it to people who I had just met who I thought would be interested in the info here about hair, but I don't think they joined. I don't get it. I can't imagine not having this site. When I'm off of my jobs, and have vacation, I log soooo much time here, and when I'm home I'm here. If there is a particularly interesting thread happening that I'm really into, I'll log in first thing in the morning, too, before I get ready for work....and, see, it is now 12:07 am, and I have to get up early tomorrow, but here I am!!! I'm addicted!!!

    My chosen family and a couple of friends know I'm a member here, but they don't really care and I really don't mind mentioning it in passing. ^^ I tried to get a couple of people to come here, but alas, it has not happened.

    Talking Re: Is your residency here a secret?

    I am pretty much out of the LHC closet. I talk about it with my friends and read posts aloud to them sometimes. I have talked some friends into signing up and discussed the site with complete strangers as a resource and support group.
    I am proud to be an active LHC member, but I think it's cool that you can have something that's just for you.

    My family and my friends know that I post here but they don't know that I measure my hair and take length shots. My mum always tells me that I'm too obsessed with my hair and spend too much time taking care of it.

    I definitely don't go out of my way to hide it . . .then again, I'm a member of another forum (about designer handbags/shoes/clothing) where I spend a *lot* of time, so my friends are pretty much accustomed to me doing crazy things like flying across the country for a forum meet-up (^(oo)^)v

    Not a secret at all, but it probably should be. I get a lot of eye-rolls, tuts and a lot of "you need better interests than hair, it's not normal" LOL

    It's annoying especially when I'm particularly pleased with my hair for whatever reason, someone always wants to p!$$ on my parade <_<

    I usually refer to it as ''this hair forum'' that I'm a member of. It never occurred to me people might find it strange there's a forum only about hair (although as we all know, LHC is about so much more than just hair, and that there is no such thing as JUST hair ) until someone got really incredulous when I told them about it. Since then I've just tried to kind of off-handedly mention it when I've needed to, it's not a secret but I don't go out of my way to tell people about it either.
