Thank you soulboy

Beautiful hair so thick too looks lovely.

Mines a real mess at the moment been losing loads for a couple years now

getting thinner and thinner the strands are really thin .

Never recovered after being in hosp 2 yrs ago with pneumonia.

Came home it all frazzled up really dry then started shedding and has never stopped strands getting thinner and thinner and losing loads every day.

Your hair looks wonderful and a lovely colour too 💕X

Whilst busy studying the crossword Alice was blissfully unaware that a small pink and white pony was busy trampling her prized flowers.Very nice hair do my love and you do look very elegant as bernadette noted.

I do feel a bit better mennel ,I'm quite good at lifting myself out of the dumps ,by telling myself off

Wow your hair looks great and well done. x

Alice went out with brand new hair

Though it took her a while to get there

Now though she is the belle of the ball

And is standing very tall. x

Time you went to specsavers bev,i get the distinct impression that Alice is seated or are you looking at a different picture than the rest of us?don't even think about setting your beast on me,Scruff's is prepared to do battle. :) xx

Ha ha the battle of the puddy cats. Can put it on YT and make a fortune. x

Omg i didn't know if that was a proposition or an invitation to do my laundry .either way i may sleep with some difficulty tonight or have vivid dreams. :) xx

Oh dear - I do give some men uncomfortable thoughts. :O x

Oh dear skis this is triggering me a bit so will delete it. Sorry. x

we were only having a bit of funny banter. :)

Yes I know that and it isn't your fault. You know I can take a joke with the best and that's all it was. But it unfortunately triggered something in me that has really upset me now. :( Sorry to be a flake. xx

Oh gosh everybody lighten up. It must be a British thing you guys are a little uptight for the most part aren’t ya?. Maybe I’m not uptight enough who knows but they call the name of my state” the land of fruits and nuts” bcuz nobody trips too much here. Cannabis is legal, gambling is legal, you can marry someone of your own gender. I hope you love how I worded that ever so proper. Basically doesn’t matter what anybody thinks if you can’t joke around and have a laugh then what the hell are we here for. Oops you got me in my sweet spot: my rights as an American Citizen. I am very fortunate I hope you people are too but I’m not too educated on the history of your country unfortunately world history was not one of my strong points. Love you guys’s show party on

You ought to try being seen as an ugly woman in the UK. There are reasons for my reaction which you could never understand.

Hi hypercat ,do you know there is beauty tobe found in us all ,some times it is on the out side ,the best beauty of all comes from within ,like yourself and many many more on this forum ,you are always there for people ,and for that I send you many many thanks

I think our rights mostly match yours. To be fair, the Revolutionary War was so that American citizens could have the same rights as British citizens. I am glad you love your country as I do mine, but certainly on the whole we are not so brash xx

Complements in its self gives us a lift in our days,you and skis have took the biscuit by really making me laugh,I absolutely love this forum

I really love the color and it really looks soft and healthy I would’ve thought it was natural if you hadn’t mentioned hair dresser. I wish my hair would go that color but I only have one grey hair says my hairdresser but I make up for it with very wrinkled skin for my age. I’ve had extreme sun exposure and had lots of fun getting them. You’re not an old lady unless YOU say you are. An I’m not sayin👍

in reply to Sandyeggo

The colour is natural sandy ,bit not the style , I have enough wrinkles ,not usually a sun worshiper, just old age ,I wish there was a majic formula, I've never tried anything, as I dont believe they work ,you have the right idea about the old lady bit ,thank you sandy

Maybe your hair is not white because you have benefited from all that sun building up your Vitamin D.

Your hair is fabulous....so chic.

You wear it well, sparkle on !!

That's a nice thing to say thank you fircome

I love pure white hair. I used to have very dark brown hair, but now it’s iron grey, which looks horrible. I wonder if you can have silver white put in at the hairdressers, I think it’s a really flattering colour for older skins

in reply to Croydonia

I suppose you could croydonia ,the young girls dye theres silver now dont they

As they say: if you’ve got it flaunt it. Not that I follow my own advice. Much too modest but seriously your hair looks lovely -great colour and cut.

Best wishes

in reply to Perrythomas

I'll tell you what I did ,my hair was very dark in my younger days ,and as I got greyer and greyer I started to dye it blonde as some years passed I could see my roots were white ,so I let the roots grow about three inches then I had all the blonde cut off ,iwas left with a very short hair style ,it soon grew ,I havent looked back no more roots

You look lovely Alice. Very smart. I love your hair. Mine is silver, I would like it to go white, I think white hair is very sophisticated. I never go out without my make-up on, and smart clothes. It makes you feel good, and it cheers me up. Take care. xx

I'm sure you look lovely ,silver hair is very much in fashion

It looks brilliant. Great style!

Such a healthy looking head of hair Alice70.

Sorry you have been feeling a little down lately, but you must be

consoled by the fact that unlike some of us you never

have a “ bad hair day.”

Good wishes. You must be feeling better looking so good. 😊

I'm feeling better at the moment ,thank you ,today I got for induction for polumonry exercises, thanks for complement

You look great! I think the best photos are taken 'candid camera style' when the person isn't posing. And I'm so envious of your hair, I have nearly fully white hair ... but it is 'hypothyroid hair' so thin and in poor condition.

Thank you moogle, I know what you mean about thyriod hair ,my mother myself ,sister and daughter all have hypothyriod ,my mother ,sister,daughter suffer with there hair problems ,I've been lucky I had very thick hair to start with ,I lost some before being diagnosed ,that was 30 years ago ,I've been on 125mg of levothyroxine since would you believe, my hair did thicken back up after treatment ,my sister ,daughter hair is better after treatment ,but not the same as it was ,my mother who has passed now her hair was so thin I consider myself lucky,so I know where you are coming from best wishes

Oh Alice, you look lovely. I actually like white hair. And I'm not being funny but it suits you very well. We all have those very down times when we can't seem to catch a break. But it will pass. You take care and just keep putting one foot in front of the other. We will be okay.
