    My Hair

    It drives me nuts. Its too fine to cut very short because it leaves me looking bald. If it gets too long, the slightest breeze blows it around. If it moves when its wet it stays that way for the rest of the day! In short, it is ridiculous. Why couldn't I be born with...

    Stupid Hair..

    My hair is so horrible.. I hate it so much. It's just so frizzy and thick.. Right now it's all plaited up but when my mum undoes the plaits it hurts soooo much. Sometimes I'm literally screaming because it hurts so much. It's just much bother to make it look ok again. I can't...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    I really want long hair

    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 cannot stand my hair.

    For as long as I can remember, I have been getting relaxers in my hair, for it to just grow back and be a kinky mess all over again. I have to go through the burns on my scalp from every perm. It's just so annoying being black, your hair takes forever to grow, and there's...

    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...

    UGH !!!

    My hair was breaking off and falling apart, so I cut it to "start over", I have to admit it was a good idea in theory but now I have this short curly (jeri-curl looking) hair that poofed out when it dries ... I can't wait until it's pony tail length again ... LOL....

    It's very plain. It's also very thick

    and hard to style. The most I can do with it is put it in a small ponytail. It also won't grow past my shoulders very much and I've always wanted long hair. :(

    It's Really Starting To Bug Me

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    This has stuck with me for years. I've always hated my hair anyway, it's always been a little dry and it's just so wavy. It never straightens because it's too wild and it never curls right because the curls don't stay in. I can never win with my hair. Then i remember going for...

    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...
