Good for you!

I love it, princess. It looks great! One of these days I'm gonna whack mine off, too. I'm so tired of long hair....well, it's not that long, a few inches past my shoulders, but long enough to be a PITA.

I'm healthy with a good diet, so that isn't a worry. Blood-work is always fine too. A few years back when this first happened (I was just finishing up with menopause) my friend up the street suggested I take a small amount of vitamin E each day. Seems her cat had an issue with hair loss and the vet suggested she squeeze a capsule of the vitamin over kitty's food. If if worked for the cat and I didn't take too big a dose of vitamin E I figured I had nothing to lose. It seemed to work!

When I put my hair up I don't pull it hard, nor do I use anything tight to hold it. I use my fabric scrunchies and loop the hair around it. Two long bobby pins later and voila!

I read the linked article. Must be the stress doing it - Himself and I will be married 40 years this November.

Very smart and businesslike. Wash 'n wear as they say.

I have a chin length bob. Boring and rather childish but it's the only way I can get away with wash 'n wear when I'm in a hurry and look halfway decent. My Dad (hairdresser and barber) used to say he'd seen better hair on a side of bacon! Long and up works and is cool in this weather but ageing at my advanced years and layers? Don't even go there!

When I first got Horse I stopped having the grey coloured out of my hair and grew it down to my waist. Wore it up for work and going out but in a plait/braid down my back for riding so I could get my helmet on. If I wasn't giving Horse the respect and attention he thought he deserved he'd get hold of it in his teeth and pull! I finally had it cut off as I felt I was too old for it but I still miss it. So easy to look after and the plait looked rather good as it was quite attractively striped in shades of grey. People used to ask me if it was professionally coloured that way.

The nape of my neck was where it was the hottest! Best of all, I didn;t wake up with a bird's nest on my head this morning.

Thanks folks, yes it's a bit drastic, but in the long run may save me from the heat.

There is a strike that has pretty much shut down a local supermarket chain. It's a popular chain of 71 stores that offers the lowest prices around. As a result, their customers must shop in other stores. I was in a Stop&Shop yesterday and overheard the manager talking to a customer. He said you could tell which customers were from the other store because they were the ones complaining about the higher prices. He said it as a criticism of the other store's customers but I saw it as an indictment of his store's prices.

I like your new haircut, PF. I have had my hair cut that short a couple times in the past, and my hair grows fast. I have very thick, coarse hair. Right now it is just to the bottom of my earlobes. I have heard that as you age, your hair thins, but I think that only applies to those who have thin hair to begin with. My step daughter is having a bad problem with her hair thinning at age 45. She has been told that her hairloss is from stress. I would be so happy to give her some of mine!
