I know there have been a bajillion and one threads on hair,but I just need to vent somewhere.
(Anyone else notice I've been doing that alot lately?:rolleyes: )


Honestly,I think there is waaaaay too much emphasis on hair these days.
It's kind of like if your hair isn't PERFECT,you're automatically an outcast.
I mean,what's the big deal?
If you really think about it,it's just dead junk growing off the top of your head.


OTOH,I miss having hair.
Sometimes,I get these urges to go curl or straighten my hair.
But guess what?
I can't because I have NO hair!
It kind of sucks.


So,yeah,vent over.
I'm sure I'll add more later.

I completely agree! Hair is just another excuse to critize someone. I always said I wish EVERYONE was bald. It would make the whole getting ready for the day process much faster. Plus, if you really look at it, hair defines a girls social status. All of my friends and I basically have the same hair when we go out. (At school it doesn't matter, its an all girls school, we honestly don't care) Once we're in public its like if you want to be considered pretty at all you have to have PERFECT hair. Ugh, It really annoys me.

you're seriously pushing your luck on this thread. maybe you should just stop posting. Its one thing to say something as mean as your original post to a 14 year old CANCER patient, but stop beating a dead dog. We know you're an insinsitive blankity blank blank. just get off the thread before you get yourself in trouble.

When I was younger I used to have really long hair and in 6th grade I cut 17 inches off and gave it to locks of love. I cut a lot off because when I cut it the minimum was 15 inches and now they changed it to 10. But I like the fact that I gave a little girl somewhere hair.

I've been wanting to dye my hair red for a while and next Saturday I'm getting highlights but I don't want highlights I want my hair I want it red. But my mom was like "you'll see if you want your hair red after it's highlighted" but I had my hair highlighed red in 8th grade and I couldn't even tell that they were there. So we'll see how it goes.

Half the time I go to school with my hair in a messy bun because I didn't feel like blowdrying the night before so I have bed hair.

Gosh, what'd I do? I said hair dosn't make the person? Why does everything I say get me branded for life around here? Maybe not a lot of us have such profound things to say, but I wasn't saying anything bad to her.

do you have dark hair? if so, you'll need to bleach it before you go red if you want it to show up. it'll just turn blackish if you don't.

Are you serious?
Not trying to be rude.
But come on.
That's what I have a problem with.

What's so bad about split ends?
It's only hair!

I have medium brown hair. I don't want it bright red, I want it an auburn-ish, brown red. So it's not a big difference.

I'm getting it done at a salon anyway. So they'll know what their doing. I would never trust myself dying my own hair.

I love my hair. It's at a length that I'm comfortable with. Sometimes, I care to do it, most of the time, I don't. I don't judge people by their hair. It's just hair.

I honestly hope you are joking. My school doesn't really have the hair problem. I have okay hair. Its not bad, but when it is humid it frizzes really bad and I hate it. I think people focus on clothes and who your friends are more but thats everywhere. I'm not like that. I know someone who had cancer and she lost her hair and she got wigs. I couldn't even tell she was wearing one. If that makes you more comfortable I say go for it. If not, your hair will grow back eventuallyit's just a matter of time. :hug:

I hate my hair
We all know in the inside everyone has a different personality
So whats the big deal about hair?
It really is just a pile of waste...
But in Sonyas defence you really dont know what you have until its gone completely :(

Im sorry your hair was lost due to chemo
But we all know your pretty on the inside and shouldnt that be all that matters?

AngelInDisguise,I'm glad to hear you were joking.
Because if you were serious,

It drives me nuts.

My school is waaaaaaay too hair oriented. And it's not like anyone has any sense of style. There are two trends: Stick staight and glued to your head, with layers way too thick at the top, and scrunched so that it's sort of wavy, but it is still flat, and it looks wet. Ick.

Put your own spin on things. Sonya, you've got creativity. Use it! Find a wig that you like, wear it, but to be honest, I don't think that matters. Just have fun with your style. Accesorize. Wear hats. Hats are fun. You could wear Disney hats.

But, just do your own thing. I'm sure that with everything you've been through, you know better than the rest of us that life is too short to spend your time trying to fit in. Follow your own beat.

And livestrong bracelets are always good.

I am so sorry Sonya that you have to go through all you have to go through. I can't even imagine it. It is hard enough just being a teenager. But personally I could really careless about my hair. I mean I wash it and stuff, but I mostly let it air dry and there it is.

Im sorry to hear that you dont have hair. My older cousin didn't have hair because of alopecia (when you lose your hair), its a desease. Her hair grew back in a year, which is very rare. So consider yourself lucky.

I'm pretty lucky.
My school doesn't OBSESS.
A handful of popular chicks may,
But that's about it.

It doesn't matter how many threads you make, as long as you're venting and getting everything out it's OK. And we're here for you 100 percent. I can't imagine what it'd be like to have cancer.

So that's why 2 years ago in March I donated about 12 inches to Locks of Love.

My school doesn't obsess over hair. We're not like that.
Noone is trying to impress anyone, maybe we try to make our clothes look nice but hair isn't really an issue.

Sonya I'm sorry you're going through a struggle with not having hair :hug: Just remember in a matter of time you'll be healthy and your hair will come back. Even if you feel uncomfortable, consider getting a wig. It might make you feel better, yet I wouldn't know because I'm not in your position, but try what you need.

If I had longer hair I would definantly donate to Locks of Love, but I only have a little over shoulder length hair so that's not an option for me. But it's something I would do if I could.
