I Hate My Hair

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 361 People

    I always have this upset

    and remorse feeling after having a hair cut or getting a different hairstyle. Damn the new hairstyle always sucks and not as good as the old one. I've always wished that I've not get myself a new hairstyle and regretting after that.

    I Don't Know What To Do

    I don't like my hair, actually I hate it. I'm 19 mixed between black and white. No one ever taught me how to take care of my hair so I had to learn on my own. My mom is white and she had me young so she didn't really know how to deal with my hair either. I recently started using...

    I used to love my hair

    until recently when it started thinning out for no reason. After every shower I take when I brush my hair the brush is covered in hair. I used to have really thick hair and I loved showing it off but now I'm always having to lint roll my clothes and hope nobody sees all the hair...

    Wish It Was Curly Not Fuzzy!

    I'd rather not admit it, but I've never really liked my hair... I have hair which when combed out looks much like the woman in the photograph who represents this group. Although i think she looks magnificent, I've always wished my hair was straight like most people's (I've seen...

    Does Anyone Else's Hair Flick Up At The Ends

    My hair flicks up at the ends really badly, like coat hooks. Even after I have straightened it (I have to use a blow dryer as flat irons make it feel all cruncy and damaged even with heat spray). I have to sit with rollers in and I look like an old granny. My boyfriend thinks...

    Why Us??!!

    I hate being black. No, I'm lying, I love my race. I just hate my hair. Why do black people's hair have to be so jacked up? It's like we're the only race on the whole planet that have this issue. All the other races have nice long, flowing, beautiful, manageable hair while black...

    Obsessed With Having to Have Perfect Hair

    I'm obsessed with my hair and I hate it. I used to have the longest and nicest hair and now after I got a perm and dyed it too much I feel like I'm losing all of it and everyday I worry about it! I know it will grow back, but it just feels so thin and now I cut it all off into a...

    So my hair is really curly.

    Lol should I keep growing it, or cut it? I don't really hate my hair, it was just an option that was closest.

    Well what can I say, other

    than my hair causes me too much grief even if it means something as simple as tying it back in a ponytail. It is thin and wavy but there is a lot of it so wearing it down isn't an option whatsoever as it will not sit neatly unless I go at with curlers/straighteners. Now onto the...

    It's too thin and fine.

    It actually makes me feel self conscious. I've even had one person telling everyone I have cancer and that's why it's so thin. Which was extremely inappropriate of her, but it did bother me. I already feel nervous constantly, the extra attention didn't help. I wanted to drop out...

    It's fine and thin and straight.

    It's been very dry and flyaway so this morning I added conditioner. Now it's soft and silky and super straight and flat. *Sigh* There's no hope!!!!

    I had my hair cut around a month ago,

    it went from waist length to shoulder length. All because of the damage caused by hair rebonding. My hair used to fall out in big clumps back when it was longer, it still falls but not as much as it used to be back then. Maybe I should have it shaved instead. >:)

    but everytime I grow an inch or two it dies and needs to get cut off. The cycle is never ending and I feel like I should give up on my dream of having super long hair. My stylist tells me I have thin hair and I have to deal with my crappy hair but no my hair was wonderful before...

    I have made a horrible mistake.

    .. I got side sweep bangs.. They looked good on me when I was younger but I had lighter hair back then. Now I have black hair and it makes me look goth. Nothing against goth people. I just don't like the look on me.

    My hair is such an issue.

    So much money is spent getting it done just so I can feel okay. I have African hair so It's extremely stubborn and not pretty at all. I really do wish is was longer but It's very short and not feminine at all. I suppose I just have to wait for it to grow and take more care of it...

    I have always had issues with my hair.

    For a long time I struggled with trichotillomania, which is a long term for the basic idea that I feel the urge to pull out my hair whether it be eye lashes, eyebrows, hair on top of my head or pubic hair. My urge was to pull from the top of my head. It was terrible. I pulled so...

    I love when other people do my hair.

    They make it so straight. When I do my hair it's still poofy. I get so mad at my hair that I want to cut it off. But I love it when it's super straight but I can't EVER seem to get it that way. I hate getting mad at it but I do.

    It's so thin. Before I ever dyed it,

    my hair was a really light brown with a lot of natural blond highlights. When I went out in the sun a lot it would shade to a really light blond and it would be wavy. But I dyed it with red koolaid a couple times, with purple dye, and with black. The black was the best and the...

    Curly and Frizzy

    My hair is curly and frizzy. I've had more perms than I can count and I can never get it to be perfectly straight. The only way I can get it to look the way I want it is to get a perm, blow dry it, flat iron it, and put some oil in it. After all that it stays perfect for about 20...

    It's starting to bother me to the point where I feel tempted to just hack it all off. Only that would probably make it worse because it seems that whenever I try and fix it myself, it only ends up looking sh!ttier. Ummm so basically it's always been really long and...
