    Post Do you get attached to your hairtoys?

    Yesterday my much beloved claw clip that I have had for nearly 2 years broke . I brought it back to Nordstroms today to see what they could do about it. I was really hoping they could fix the spring on my old one but they said they could only give me a new one for free. Although the new clip is identical to the old one I am still sad to part with it. It sounds strange but I have had so many good times with that clip. It was with me 24/7 for 2 years afterall!

    Does anyone else form attachments to their favorite hair toys or am I just odd?

    I don't think that's odd!

    That's wonderful Nordy's gave you another one for free!!!

    I have this one headband that I got in a pack when I was about 7 or 8 years old. All these years (I'm almost 25!!) and I still have the brown one. I'd be devastated if it broke

    Oh yeah. I have a vintage pink plastic bow hair fork that I broke. Since it is for children, no surprise there. I have kept the pieces because I loved it so much. Sigh. I mean, what am I going to do with this? I should just throw it out!!!

    I'm like that with not only hair toys but many of my possessions.

    I'm with Carolyn on this one. I've definitely become attached to different hair toys, but I'm also very much emotionally attached to other things--my mother's cedar chest, my flute (I don't care how frequent/infrequently I play, I'll never part with it), and a few family related things. I think it's perfectly normal to form emotional attachments to material things.

    I've only been attached to one - it was a purple and silver sparkle claw clip that managed to hold my hair (when it was at hip) even if I folded it double. I slept over a friend's place in college and someone stole it. I've yet to find one that can do the same - I'm convinced that was the only one lol

    This. I still miss a pair of boots from my childhood, they were just fabulous

    I'm very attached to a certain hairstick, although I don't wear it very often because it's on the long side and has danglies (which annoys the hell out of my colleagues and certain friends), but I bought it while on holiday last year and each time I look at it it makes me smile and think of that wonderful time

    I'm sorry your claw clip broke, it's awful when you have to part with a loved hairtoy (or any other cherished possession).

    You are not odd. I am not attached to all of my hairtoys, but some of them are extremely dear to me. They're not always the more expensive ones, but they are the ones that have meaning to me in some way.
