I have counselled a lot of people who suffer from depression because of their hair so I am very sensitive about this issue.

And if you mean counsel in a casual setting, there still is a larger issue at hand. Either way if someone is depressed about their hair, nothing anyone said (good or bad) outside of that persons head is going to change that.

I have no need to lie about anything.

The people I know who are depressed about their hair are depressed because of the comments made by others.

I posted a whole thread about one girl this happened to in the Hall of Shame section
