wild nice one for that link, how did I miss that thread? It seems to be a very common problem these days, probably due to all different reasons.
I think to be honest, it's always been a problem, but women in the olden days weren't focusing on it too much (what with the war and all that).
The other day I tried to get a bit of sympathy from my gran by telling her about my hair, and she said "Really? Oh yeah by the way guess what happened to your dad?".
I thought "that says it all doesn't it", my gran is normally a good listener but that subject really didn't shock her at all. But then again, she did grow up during the war, lost her mum when she was 6, her husband at age 53, and a 34 year old son.
So my thinning hair was not going to concern her too much.
~ There are times I know what I am doing is a risk, and this will be a perfect time to try this protective wear out! Working out with weights last week, I left the gym only to see the rope I was pulling over my head w/weights on it must have rubbed my forearms, and left markes!~ So, this is a perfect example as to WHEN to wear this protective gear..plus playing with our pets! I will post back once I get them and have had a chance to try them out! I am really excited to have something to protect my forearms, as to try out your suggestions as well! Thank you all!
