    Re: Hair problem or questions

    My daughter keeps telling me that twice daily scalp massages will help to keep hair from thinning because it's a circulation problem. I don't know if once it starts to thin, the scalp massage will work, but she keeps insisting I start now, so mine doesn't thin.
    Quite personally, I was getting tired of hearing about scalp massage, but then who knew I could pass that advice along.

    MRD - I'd love to hear your daughter's opinion on this. Mom has been using some shampoo that keeps grey hair from turning yellow but she has been using that for several years and doesn't think that is what is causing the hair thinning problem.
    doxie, when your mom sees her doctor the next time, have him/her check out her thyroid and order blood work. Both an overactive or underactive thyroid can cause hair loss.

    I just scanned the last 2 pages, so I'm not sure if this has been pointed out yet.
    Just to remind you all, Dry scalp is not the same thing as Dandruff.
    Dandruff is clumpy, sticky and yukky. Dry scalp is just that, dry skin on your head.

    Re: Hair problem or questions

    I just got a haircut. I decided I liked the short hair better and asked for it to be short with mad layers. She barely cut any length and hardly any layers and left the hated Bozo the Clown clumps behind my ears. I hate it. Do I go back and demand they cut it the way I wanted or go somewhere else with a picture to make sure there are no misunderstandings? It wasn't expensive ($14) but while I was there another woman came in unhappy with her cut demanding it be fixed and after she left they made fun of her. I'm not much of a demanding my rights kind of person. What would you do?

    Go to a different salon and take a photo. photos speak much louder than words where haircuts are concerned.

    If they can't cut it right the first time, they probably won't the 2nd time either. And they've messed up both yours and another woman's and then they made fun of her, so that would make me VERY leary of ever going back.

    I'd not go back. EVER. And I'd let the owner know why.

    Re: Hair problem or questions

    Just the fact that they talked about another customer in front of you would make me not want to go back. That's just tacky. I agree with myrosiedog. I would be sure to let the owner know exactly why I will not be coming back.

    Re: Hair problem or questions

    I think you need to find somebody with a haircut that you really, really like and ask them who did the cut. Just going out there on your own, you may end up with the same amount of dissatisfaction. You can't be shy about chasing somebody down to find out who cut their hair! And it would be better for you to decide with your own eyes who has a really good cut that you like. I'd be hesitant just hearing about somebody's skills as opposed to seeing what they can actually do. And don't rule out a barber...which doesn't mean that you will get a masculine cut. There are a lot of female barbers out there (and some men) who do fabulous women's cuts, and the whole styling route, too. I go to a barber shop with 4 female barbers; they do it all! Men also come there. And I pay a lot less than I would at a salon/beauty shop.

    Re: Hair problem or questions

    That's true. Before we moved here my husband and I both went to the same barber to get our hair cut. I haven't found anyone that I've liked as well since. I just wish he wasn't so darn far away now.

    On the flip side, I had a friend who used to get her hair cut by the same person that cut her husband's, and they looked like BROTHERS!!! Of course I'm not sure if it was a barber or a beautician, though.

    Gut, try a hair school. The instructors are right there with the students checking them all through the cut and the price is good. My daugther's school charges $7.50 for a cut and those kids do some good work. And the instructor makes sure that they haven't butchered it.
