    Default Megarexia! Ever heard of this?

    I just heard a really funny hair term whilst listening to the radio: Megarexia! It means that you are obsessed with big hair - It can never be too big! And you do what ever it takes to get that huge fluff, and you are of course blind to wether it suits you or not

    I definately suffer from this! Or I used to any way. I hate when my hair looks thin and lank. I would loooove to have curly hair, so I could have HUGE hair without destroying it. I used to tease my hair every day and wear these insane hairdos. All for the love of fluff!

    Now my big hair days are over and I'm doing my best to achieve glorious, healthy, ridiculuosly long hair! (I acctually think i'm replacing my megarexia with lengthorexia instead, much healthier in my book anyway).

    This reminds of a TV show I once saw where they took hair stylists and put them working on a very different surroundings. There was this one episode where a hair dresser from I-don't-know-where was placed in a hair salon in Texas and she had to do the hair for a girl who was going to participare in a beauty pagent. The hair dresser tried to do a style that she thought was beautiful and approriate for the competion and everyone around just kept sayin "Bigger! It needs to be bigger!"

    I saw somebody in the supermarket yesterday here in Georgia with this affliction. Except hers looked more like Annette Bening's in American Beauty.

    I think I suffer from it too. Just a little. I like how big hair looks - but of course it needs to be healthy and thick too :P Pouffy dry teased 80’s cobweb looks... bad.

    I think I have the opposite affliction...my hair in its natural state is very big and I look for ways to make it more compact.

    Edit: Oh, I forgot to mention that I'm far from megarexic, but I think I might be lengtherexic instead

    Same here! I'm all for decreasing the poof. Whenever I see a style that involves teasing, I just can't comprehend why someone would do that. And often wish my hair was thinner. I guess we have minarexia then.

    I have relatives who suffer from this condition... Unfortunately, it's somewhat contagious, so I had it for a while. It'll still pop up every once in a while, but luckily I suppress the urge to buy mousse or hairspray.
