</u>So yesterday, when I was drying my hair, I wondered: How much hair does the average person lose when they're washing, brushing, and drying their hair?

Because I lose great big hanks of it sometimes, but my hair is quite thick (lol, Persians), so it doesn't make much of a difference. But I'm thinking that if someone with thin hair lost about a fistful in total every time they took a shower, things might not be so peachy. :noes:

Oh yeah, and that same day when I was washing my hair, I ran out of shampoo and had to rummage through the closet for a suitable substitute.

The best thing I could find was some kind of color-preserving shampoo my mom used to use that, no doubt, was laced with chemicals. :icondeathstareplz:

I guess at least, after using that, I'd have a good reason for why my hair comes out so easily. **shot** And you know that's the nastiest feeling ever, when you've got hair stuck all over on your hands and arms.

That shampoo made my hair feel gross. I: If I had wanted it to feel unclean after taking the shower, I wouldn't have bothered to wash it in the first place.

But back on the subject of blow-drying: I also have to straighten my hair. Because I've got the nasty mixture of coarse Asian hair and unruly middle-eastern hair.
My hair is naturally wavy, but not even the pretty kind of wavy. Not even when it was long. : When it's not dry, I look like a hobo, no lie.
(And dude, when guys have dark wavy hair, it looks good without having to do anything. In fact, most guys have hair that looks good without doing anything. DB< WHY ARE WOMEN CONSISTENTLY THE BUTT MONKEYS OF THE GENE POOL?)

And once, I straightened my white friend's hair, and it was SO SOFT. WHY. WHY. IT'S NOT FAIR, I TELL YOU. I COULD DUMP A WHOLE BOTTLE OF CONDITIONER ON MY HEAD, AND IT WOULD STILL FEEL LIKE HAY.

AND NOW I'M GOING TO GO OFF AND REALLY BE JAPANESE AND DYE MY HAIR BLOND FOR NO. GOOD. REASON. :iconwtfaruplz:


P.S. I didn't think I'd actually have to say this, but I'm not REALLY going to dye my hair, guys. IT'S A JOKE, YEAH?

I'm Asian, my hair is rather thin, is quite coarse and is very prone to dandruff. If only my dad would let me grow it long, then the natural curls will make it look not to bad... But I take pride in it because it's REALLY black.

I lose loads of hair when I wash it too. D:

Hair-dye-preserving shampoo!?!?O___________O That actually EXISTS?!?!
(Sounds like something my mom would want when she dyes HER hair.-____-)

At least you only got to lose some of you hair. Two months ago, due to a certain hair shampoo from abroad, my scalp grew small bumps that hurt when you touch them. They're gone now.

(Asian hair ain't really that coarse. I'm Asian. Try combing it 100 times?(".))

Because my hair is down to 1/8 of my back, I lose a lot of hair! It's worse when it's dry. It gets caught in between my shirt and my bra leaving me with a VERY ITCHY BACK.
Mom: I don't see any more hairs.... :confused:
Me: But IT STILL ITCHES!!! :crazy:

I can totally relate with you on this one. My hair is more Persian than Italian, so even when my hair is clean, it's like....PWOOF!

And my stepsister always uses the good shampoo till I'm left with the crap.

I feel bad now... I'm white, my hair is fun to touch.
I loose more hair at random times of the year (like now), but I'm not doing anything to cause it... My hair is medium thickness, and I do dye it (with a natural henna dye, part of the reason my hair is so soft).
I bet your hair can survive humidity better then mine, talk about frizz!

I have really thick hair too and sometimes it's best to use no conditioner a few times and use really deep cleaning shampoo. I do that then straighten onlyt he parts of my hair that need to be straightend. But loosing hair really ticks me off too. And Dyeing your hair isn't always a best thing, The blonde thing is just a joke but, to me, dyeing hands you a slap in the face.

I have really thick hair too. (Curse my Puerto Rican/Dominican hair...) I have to get it straightened all the time or it gets really curly. And not the pretty kind of the curly, the UGLY kind of curly. -orz- And~ my hair gets really poofy too...

Sometimes I wish I could wear a wig everyday so I wouldn't have to deal with it.

I know how you feel! I have similar hair, though it's brown and I really don't know where it came from in our gene pool. BC My mum has it too. We had... ONE Indian ancestor like 500 years ago but that's just one, man.

I'm considering getting boy-hair.

My hair is thick and the ends curl. My bangs also get really curly and look like springs or a slinky.
T_T It also poofs out and I look like a lion.
Apparently it looks nice but not to me *cries* so I just keep it in a ponytail.

I...
I don't really lose much hair when I shower.
But I've got this super thin, super fine hair so if I started losing big clumps I would look bald after maybe like the fifth clump.


Though maybe I could pretend to be a cancer patient and get onto the rides faster at Nikolodian Universe, 'cause they'd think I was a disabled kid

There's a shampoo/conditioner combo that makes your hair naturally straight if you use it for like a month but it's slightly pricey!! But hey anything to beat down genetics right? I'm 3/4 asian and love the genes so far :3

Yeah, I always loose quite a bit of hair when I shower, but even despite that, my hair isn't thin.

Also:
"And you know that's the nastiest feeling ever, when you've got hair stuck all over on your hands and arms."

OMG, yes, that is SO gross. >__< I thought I was the only one who thought that way. My parents think I'm weird when I tell them this. They just don't understand. -__-

Uh, take a shower at night and not in the morning, then dry it there. Straighten it in the morning. ~o~
Also, when washing, put one load of shampoo, and put TWO loads of conditioner on. ;o
I also find it better when I don't wash my hair everyday, because my hair feels the nicest the day after it has been washed. Weird, right? D;

I always wonder the same thing. I absolutely hate cleaning my brush, it's so nasty. :1

I hate my hair because it went from a pretty blonde to brown (NOES) and I think it's not soft at all, but my friends think otherwise. (Is it a fact that Asians admire white people's hair? Be interesting to study. XD) My hair is naturally wavy and I don't have to do anything to keep it looking decent, but I get awful bedhead a lot. D: I wake up 30% of the time with Italy curls that JUST WON'T STAY DOWN NO MATTER HOW MUCH WATER I PUT ON THEM.

NOES, DON'T DYE YOUR HAIR. D8 Dark eyes seriously look weird with light hair. And most of the time people actually forget to dye their eyebrows, too.;;;

I have Norse almost-wavy, almost-curly hair, and it's super thick. I can't put conditioner on it, or it gets nasty. I can't brush it or it frizzes. And I also shed... I can comb my hand through my hair and pull out a clump of it...

Basically what I can do with my hair is let it dry and hope it takes some sort of shape.

*picks at a piece of her hair and notes how frazzled and tangled it is*
*shrug*
If I take care of my hair then it's soft with big pretty waves and curls and has a nice bounce to it
But I never take care of it :P
so instead it has tangles, fly aways everywhere, and is so poorly strangled in a ponytail.
always.

I have to help my friend dye her hair black with blue tips :ohnoes:
