I am watching "The Dirty Dozen" on the Sundance channel. I have seen it several times. Never get tired of watching it. Time to go back.

Had my hair cut short, Shrek saw me and the first thing he said was, "Holy Jumping J!!!" I guess it is a bit drastic, but I couldn't stand it anymore.

Picture, or it didn't happen.

I've gotten to that point with my hair. Just sent off an email to the one company that seems to welcome grey hair. Just waiting until the weather gets cooler on a regular basis. Until then, my hair gets pulled up and twisted around most of the time. I swear longer hair on my old head falls out faster than my long hair on my once-younger head.

I come from a family of hairdressers going back over 100 years. I found the following in a text book. "Nearly everyone has some hair loss with ageing. The rate of hair growth also slows. Hair strands become smaller and have less pigment. So the thick, coarse hair of a young adult eventually becomes thin, fine, light-colored hair. Many hair follicles stop producing new hairs.

If ageing isn't an issue, do you have a balanced diet? Nutritional deficiencies can cause hair loss. Do you have a thyroid problem as hair loss can be hormonal. If you are worried about it consult your doctor and ask for referral to a specialist. Do not fall for any of those adverts in magazine that claim to be miracle cures peddled by so-called "Doctors". They are mostly "snake oil".

This is quite a comprehensive article about the causes of hair loss

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/ar...nking-tea.html

Forgot to say - pulling the hair tightly into a pony tail or chignon can break off hair or pull it out at the roots before it's ready to fall out naturally.

I'm pigging out on TV, mostly nature documentaries, now Criminal Minds. I'm visiting my MIL. I don't have a TV and don't usually miss it.

Short is the right word to describe that 'do. I'll be it's easy to care for.

I love it. Wash and wear. The older you get, the better and younger you look in short hair. I get a Pixie cut every time. When Rita asks me how I want it cut, I just tell her, "Off, I want it all off!"

Oh I know, men like long hair. But they are the ones who have to care for it in hot weather.

When I got married the first time, my hubby to be met me the day before the wedding as I was on my way to the bakery to check on the wedding cake. I had long red hair down to the bottom on my butt. He asked what I was going to do with my hair. I told him not to worry, I was on my way to the hairdressers after the bakery. They next time he saw me was coming down the aisle and my hair was cut somewhat like yours PF but a slight bit longer. Only she had curled mine. I never let it grow long again. I sold my hair in the North End. And got a pretty penny for it too. Red hair for wigs was hard to come by in an Italian town.

I have to this day, very thick hair. And it takes to curling and stays that way for more than a week with just one setting. But I don't bother doing that anymore. Why make more work for myself. I love my hair. Now to figure out what to do with those dang cowlicks that stick up all over my head.

It was a bit lower than my jawline and over my collar. After sweltering in the heat at the Celtic Fair (and it was only 85F) I'd had enough and made the snap decision to get it chopped. I'll have time to grow it out before winter.
