    Default Hair Scares...

    Are you paranoid about losing all, or most of your hair, for whatever reasons? Like having it EXTREMELY damaged, or even cut off? There's been times I had my hair up and thought that it got cut off, heh heh.

    On public transportation, there's been people cutting off people's long ponytails for YEARS. The moral here is to wear a hoodie if there's people sitting behind you. ;(

    ITT discuss your greatest fears in relevance to hair, or even your experiences with losing your length unwillingly.

    I am scared I'm going to get cancer and go bald like my mom did. I mean, duh, I'm scared I could die from it. But, if I don't die... I could lose all or most of my hair. That makes me sad. My hair is really important to me.

    I do sometimes think about someone randomly chopping off a braid in public... Or a lock of hair. Gives me the heebie-geebies. But, I don't dwell on it. Besides, I usually bun my hair when I go out anyway.

    Well Im also scared of loosing my hair due to cancer and I have a high tendency for it in my family and also have caught that pap-virus But most likely once i actually have it I will focus on surviving more than my hair and not pay too much attention to it.

    Public scares me everyday. especially since a guy on the subway (last year) ripped out a small streak of my hair and smelled it
    I mostly wear it up and if I dont its hidden in my jacket or at least over my shoulder and I always pay attention to whos behind me.
    With really long hair you do get a lot of stares and its hard to tell creep from just fascinated.
    I came across a lot of internet trolls with a cut or shave f e t i s h in some german hair forums...very scary. :/

    Im also scared about getting into a fight..long hair can be a real disadvantage there..

    If you talking about the HPV virus, having HPV doesn't mean that you have or will have cancer. In most cases it goes away. I had it and it cleared up on it's own. Just keep up with your tests. Finding problems early can be taken care of these days without kemo.

    My hair scares:

    -people cutting it off (does that really happen? why do they do that?)
    -hair suddenly falling out (happens to me sometimes, but only little patches)
    -chemo

    Emichiee.....i really understand the getting into a fight thing.....long hair down or in a ponytail as you say can really be a handicap....i found that out in play fights with my ex.

    My main fear with hair is loosing it from illness.....after seeing how much i lost last year from getting ill and getting telogen effluvium. Before that my main hair concern was that it was growing too slowly and the condition (as in fried) because of chemical treatments.

    We have gas heaters here in our house, theyre the blue flame space heaters, sometimes when I dont have my hair up (middle of the night or early am) and I bend down to turn it up or down, I am like OMG, what the heck am I doing, I could catch my hair on fire!!

    I am pretty much clumsy, duhhhhhhh.....I cant be trusted around fire with my own head obviouslly, maybe I should buy a fireproof helmet for hair protection? haha, that was a joke, I would look dorky in a helmet!! (lolol)

    But seriously, I always worry about burning it! (Thank goodness I dont smoke!)

    I also watch ever careful when shaving pits in shower, someone posted that they cut their hair accidentially and one day I noticed a large chunk of wet strands in my pit right before I shaved it! (Now I make sure all the hair is NOT IN PIT before shaving) I would have a fit if I did something like that to myself! ack!
