wtf @ people touching your hair in public etc R&J, some part of me never ceases to be surprised at how rude people can be. If you can still have your hair long and you want it long, you keep it long! No idea where the idea of long hair being dirty comes from. Long dreads being dirty? Yeah theres definitely a stereotype there, but that's attached to the dreads, not the long hair o_O
It is getting a little thinner as I get older, but so far I still have more than enough to keep it long. if it ever gets obviously thin, I'll cut it but hopefully that won't happen any time soon!
the dread stereotype could be part of the "being dirty" thing (I've had long debates with people to convince them that dreads aren't dirty, either! I think that comes from straight up ignorance!) but it also could come from the fact that although I don't shed more than anyone else, its more obvious that I have shed (those long hairs are more apparent than little short hairs!). and also people with long hair don't usually wash it every day. its frustrating, though. I hate having to explain to my step-dad (for instance) that I'm clean.

If that's your real picture you're using as your avatar, I love looking at your long hair!
I'm currently sporting some longish hair, not anywhere near your luxurious locks, though. I have it because I love the feel of it against my face.
yup, that's me. I just cut 4 inches off this weekend and it still hits my tailbone. I also like the feel of it brushing against me. in the winter I almost always have it in a braid or a bun just because it gets in the way with hats and scarves. one of the many things I love about spring...I get to wear my hair loose again.

I get my hair trimmed about once every 3 months, but I've let it go as long as a year. Laziness FTW.
I trim my hair once or twice a year, tops. I only wash it at night and its more or less dry by morning. As much as I would *love* to have curly hair, it being straight makes it super easy... I barely have to brush it in the morning. Like you, the times I've had short hair I had to wash and style it daily to get it to look decent. the way it is now I barely do anything to it. I love it.

Ended up getting an expensive new wig, looks much better and natural and it's not machine made so can somewhat style it. The new foundation and mascara were definitely better, I think I looked good...
I meant to say, karaddin, that good for you for getting a new wig! From what I understand, its worth it to get an expensive one that's natural. I think its awesome that you started the year the way you want to look!
would you recommend the clinique mascara? I have always just bought cheap mascara but its one of the few makeup items I do use regularly. and I like clinique producs... I wonder if I should try it.
speaking of clinique, anyone use their spot corrector
? It has a plant-based, non-retinoid ingredient in it (supposedly)... I've been thinking about trying it for the sunspots on my chest that the retin-a doesn't want to fix. it ain't cheap, though!
