my hair!!!! i have what i consider short hair…. i usually get it cut shorter in the back and leave the sides long…. for about 10 years, my hair has never grown past just below my ears, it just doesn’t… i don’t know why…. but it’s so frusterating because i can’t grow my hair long!!! and to top it off, i have thin hair(thanks mom, lol)
So i’ve been looking through hairstyles for the wedding, and i’ve seen SO many beautiful pictures of wedding hair……… for long hair 🙁 ……. i can’t find ANY i like with short hair!
Now, i’ve been contemplating buying real hair extensions for the wedding, but i can’t fathom spending another 600$ to have them! *sigh* i’m just getting really frusterated, i just wish my hair was even shoulder length or just below even. It would help alot! guess i’m doomed to have sh*t hair on my wedding day

Out of interest, does your hair always rub on your clothes/shouldrs/collar? If the ends are costantly rubbing on something it might be fraying the ends away just enough to stop signs of significant growth. Get some natural hair masks on (egg, olive oil, honey) and eat lots of fresh vegetables, oily fish, legumes, nuts and pin your hair up so end are free. Give it a few months and see if there’s a change.
Also if you’ve been getting your hair cut short, then it will be short. 😛

Maybe talk to your doctor about options? There’s no real reason why your hair shouldn’t be growing. Try using a volumizing shampoo and don’t cut it until the wedding. If it’s still not long enough, try finding a freelance hair stylist who can do extensions cheaper.

I bought human hair extensions at Sally’s Beauty Supply and my hair stylist dyed them and cut them for me. I wanted more volume and a little bit of extra length. Cost me about $95.00 after getting $5.00 off with my discount card. Just something to think about!

@BerryBerry: I have to keep cutting it because when it gets to a certain length, not only is it unruly, but i need to cut it to keep a style. Otherwise it’s blech! i do notice that when it reaches a certain length the ends just start splitting, so i can’t just leave it like that, haha.

Hi there! Don’t worry, you’re not alone 🙂 I actually have AGA (androgenetic alopecia) aka female pattern baldness which started when I was 17 and has left me with very very thin (scalp showing) gross hair. I wear a human hairpiece, and actually if you are looking for doing something special, there are loads of cosmetic options! Check out http://www.designbyflora.com she makes human hair wigs and hair pieces. These can be clipped on or bonded (glued to your scalp). I’m not sure what extent you are dealing with hairloss (if at all), but another good site to visit is http://www.heralopecia.com (check out the wigs/extensions boards. There are sooooo many women with thin hair and/or alopecia, and they don’t even realize it. If you are concerned about the quality of your hair, you can visit a dermatologist. You might have a hormonal imbalance, maybe a vitamin deficiency, thyroid issues, etc. Or maybe you just have short, thin hair (has it always been this way, or did it start to thin out?) I hope this helps!
