    Default Happy hair = thicker hair!

    Ok, I know that it's pretty much common sense that damaged hair is thinner, more fragile, etc. than healthy hair. And although I know that my hair is still recovering from being horribly maltreated for years, I guess I still hadn't processed how much it was affected... Until I took a look at one of my shed hairs where I could really see the difference between the older hair near the tip, and the newer, "virgin" hair near the root:



    I couldn't believe that there was so much of a difference! I can't wait until the entire length of my hair is as thick and happy as the top bits are.

    Sidenote: You know you're an LHC'er when taking a picture of a single shed hair seems like a perfectly reasonable thing to do...

    *smiles* Yepp, it's perfectly reasonable.

    I've noticed that my virgin hair is thicker as well. Too bad the coloured part starts at my shoulders (my hair is somewhere between hip-lenght and classic).

    Wow, I'm going to have to compare my shed hairs. How exciting!

    Wow, I never realised there could be such a difference, and its visible to the naked eye as well.

    hahaha recently i totally discovered the same thing too!!! It in fact inspired me to make a big chop to remove most of the orangy/thinning/straw-like damaged part, and although i miss the length, the newly discovered thickness is amazing! I too am striving for a full head of waist-length virgin hair, it must be so lovely to have..*sigh*
