  • No act of kindness, however small, is wasted.
As my hair gets longer, I do love to have it around my face.  I enjoy moving it around, tucking it behind my ears, and even sometimes playing with it.

However, at times, I have to admit it is annoying that it covers my eyes or otherwise gets in the way, especially so when I need to do some work that clearly would benefit from having both of my eyes clearly being able to look at something.  My hair is not that long, however If I comb it straight down in the front, the ends of my bangs can reach my mouth. 

To deal with this, I have been wearing a thin hair clip to hold the hair down and to the side.
Even my sideswept bangs can cover one of my eyes if I comb my hair sideways.

I guess the growing head hair is both a benefit and a drawback of being a woman.  At least it is all my hair, not that I do not love a nice long hair wig.   :)    You can wear some really cute hair embellishments with longer hair, they really can be very feminine adornments.   :)   Some can look nice with shorter hair too.   :)

So do any of you find yourself in the situation that you need to hold down your hair to get it out of the way?   It is a “small price to pay” that is for sure, and sometimes may even pretty up your hair.

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

My natural hair isn't long enough now to worry about. Hopefully it'll start growing faster and I won't have to use a wig. :)

With my wig I sometimes do use clips or bobby pins to keep it out of my eyes. I also like the pins to help shape the hair on my forehead.

Good topic question.  Personally, I sometimes put my hair in a ponytail especially if I wear a cap and at night when I'm asleep - I think waking up in the middle of the night chewing on my hair wisened me up to that.

I still have some bald areas but don't wear wigs so when I part my hair sometimes I wish I had something to hold that hair into place.  Eventually, it will be long enough to part over and fit into the ponytail.

Hair accessories are not just for clearing your eye areas from hair. They can be used for straightening curly hair. And above all, they can be useful in attracting attention and accentuating your hair whey you wear monotonous clothes. I keep various hair accessories.

I sometimes use clips to hold my hair back to the sides of my head, sometimes I clip it up in a bun (especially at night, it simplifies brushing out in the mornings). Other times I will use my sunglasses on top of my head to hold the hair back out of my eyes or out of my mouth while eating.

Good luck,

I pull my hair to the back of my head and I use a hair band to keep it there. I just do not enjoy getting my hair in my mouth. Without the hair band, my hair is always in my eyes or mouth. This is just so annoying, so I use the hair bands.

I suppose I could get a hair cut, but that is just not my style. This is a small price to pay for being myself.

I haven't been too successful when I've tried barrettes etc. in the past.  I do use a UW Badgers scrunchie for my ponytail on fall Saturdays. I have a Packer ribbon hair tie for Sundays but I'm not too good at getting that right without twisting the ribbons

       Ponytail girl here but like the accessory suggestions  ;) Lately been tying low to one side so it drapes over my shoulder rather than hanging straight back. Avoids being caught in a car seat should I suddenly look down . . . and easier to nervous nibble is so inclined?

What's/is there a trick to braiding one's own hair? You know your hair is getting longer (again) if one can reach around and grab it behind your back! I understand *straight* hair is much stronger than *curly* and final length is directly related to duration of growth (Anagen to Catagen) phases.

lol Went for Birthday dinner last night daughter-in-law did "Dream of Genie" hair style with ponytail sticking straight up on top of head!

That is an absolutely gorgeous look with your ponytail and adornment.   :)

Thank you Chrissy.  :-* I still don't know where the blond is coming from  >:( . My natural color is almost black, before it went silvery-gray.

Same here.

I started out with dark brown, then went to black as a teen and 20's. I started turning a little gray in my late 30's and each year, I just got more gray. Now I noticed a few blondish streaks in my hair, but it is mainly silver gray.

I am happy to just have hair of any color.

I was like you, dark brown turning almost black later.  I did not see any gray hair until I was close to end of 50, and after that I turned gray very fast, just in the back of my head is some black hair left .  Now all of a sudden, I have  new black hair starting to come out in the front of my hairline.  Might look funny in the future, an almost black ponytail gray hair in the middle and black bangs in the front!

I've noticed that too!  Maybe it is the stress relief?

Linde,


Maybe your estrogen is growing new hair for you?

Chrissy
I don't know,  I have no receding hairline to start with, and the black hair is growing in between the existing gray hairs.  Might be that the estrogen found some old never used hair follicles, and decided to activate them?
Those and my swollen feet may be the only things estrogen is doing for me.  I know that spiiro works, because I have to run every two hours or so to the bathroom to drain.  i now have to plan any activity such, that i am near a restroom facility every two hours  .

I wear all sorts of things like Bobby pins of various colors and some with decorative designs or flowers. I also wear various clips with various finishes. Then there are the hair bands and pony tail bands. Berets are nice because they can have some additional style and serve a similar purpose to Bobby pins. Then there are the larger ones that are very nice.
