Things that frighten me beyond reason

1. I found some BioSilk Silk therapy and rubbed some between my hands and decided not to use it in my hair because of the ingredients. When I was in the shower, I noticed that no water was penatrating to my hand. It was just kind of rolling off. I used to use that. A LOT.

2. I was looking through my friend's yearbook, and I saw my picture, but more importantly, my hair. Ew. Ew. EW. The awful bangs. The dry, limp, lifeless hair.

3. People.

4. Wet-to-Dry straighteners. I don't know why, but I'm convinced that I'll be electrecuted if I use one.

5. Brushes. I decided to brush out my hair for that thread. The brush could not get through my hair. I have had brushing issues in the past (see the roller brush getting stuck in my hair), so now I officially have brushophobia.

The thought of straightening my hair. I had one of my gay friends who has never seen me with straight hair comment that I should wear my hair like I did when my security badge picture was taken (yes, it was actually a slammin' photo). So I woke up this morning thinking I would straighten it so he could see the difference. I couldn't do it. Almost had a full-blown anxiety attack about it.

Some of that probably has to do with the fact that I don't have "my tools" here with me. All my straightening brushes/serums/irons are out at my place and I'm still staying with my parents. I just couldn't go through with it. Pitiful.

Another thing that frighten me beyond reason...thinking that I will never figure out what the hell is up with my hair lately. It's just got a mind of its own and I'm not psychic here. Do they have hair whisperers anywhere? Do I need to go see a psychic? I mean, what's it gonna take, here...

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.

Ask and receive.

Thanks to Nightshade of LHC for first posting these. There are more, of other kinds of damage.

This is bubbles inside hair from heating the internal moisture inside hair too hot.


Which at some point may turn into this. This is the "white dots" under a microscope, and it's now easy to see how they break so easily and turn to splits.


And this is the source page for these.
Whoa, that's really scary. A friend of mine swears by hers. I might have to e-mail those pics to her. WOW.

I'm also not at all surprised that you have pictures of this. I know I've said this before, but you should write a book or have a TV show. Seriously. You could make millions. Forget Good Eats, you could have Good Hair. Or Charmed Hair. Hairmore Girls. Riot Crrl Live. Naked Hair.

LOL, I'm simply obvservant and a researcher really. Like I said, I was shown these by another hair fan on LHC. I would probably need at least a cosmetology license to get a book or a show.
A bunch of us would totally rally and force them to let you have a TV show. Or a license. Can you imagine the signs we would make? Riot for Riot (Crrl)!

My fears are having my hair burned straight and then having to grow it out all over again.

Fire. I was held over a flaming barbecue grill when I was about five. My brother was drunk and he threatened to drop me in the fire if my mom and grandmother didn't give him money.

Losing my nephew.

Failing.
I Love Epic Men...
