Floor Length Hair: Q & A
You may be wondering what floor length hair has to do with happiness. It actually does make my life a lot more fun and helps me bring more fun into the lives of others but that is not why I am posting a blog about my hair on this site. Because my hair is unusual, many people have questions but I do not want to take time away from the more important message of how to increase thriving in one’s life to answer those questions when I am speaking at events. Also, I recognize that not every member of the audience has those questions. My solution is to post a Q & A here that will answer the most common questions. If you have a burning question that is not addressed here please feel free to comment and I will answer it.
Q How long has it been since you cut it?
A 1985 (that makes 28 years this year – 2013)
Q How long did it take to grow it that long?
A It took 17 years to reach the floor. It seemed to grow faster once I began keeping it in a braid but I think it was that I lost less to breakage.
Q What shampoo or conditioner do you use?
A They have changed often because the manufacturers keep changing brands. I do not use expensive hair products. I use far more conditioner than shampoo.
Q Does it give you headaches?
A No. It would if I put it in a pony tail. I don’t do that.
Q Is it a religious thing?
A Not for me.
Q How long does it take to wash it?
A Start to finish it is about an hour. If it is very tangled it can take longer.
Q How long does it take to dry it?
A I never use heat on it. I allow to dry naturally.
Q Do you use special vitamins or a special diet?
A Nothing unusual and nothing that has been consistent for 28 years.
Q How do you wash it?
A A hand held shower head is the key.
Q Who braids it for you?
A I do.
Q Does it get in your way?
A Not very much. I thought it was harder when it was shorter. Now I can just put it in my pocket if I don’t want to deal with it
Q Will you give me some?
A If I gave everyone who asked some I would have been bald long ago.
Q Do you donate it?
A No. #1 – old hair would be thrown away. You don’t want to make a wig from old hair. #2 – I am using it. That question is usually followed by, “What for?” and the answer is to make my life more fun.
Q Do you ever step on it?
A Not as long as I don’t back up.
That takes care of the most common questions I receive. If you have one that is not answered here feel free to leave a comment. Comments require registration on the site.
I hope you have as much joy as you can in life.
