Do you believe in this?

When I was growing up my parents believed that kids with real short hair would have really thick hair when they grow up. So of course, my youth pictures make me look like a boy. I look at those pictures now and I absolutely hate them. To this day, I will not wear my hair short. I want it at least shoulder length. Is anyone else brought up on this theory?

  • I have never heard that before, nor do I believe that. My DD has really thick hair and only gets it trimmed. She has had short hair only once.

  • It's total BS. Thick hair comes from more hair follicles, and you don't create more hair follicles by shortening the existing hair.

  • I had long hair until I was went to school and then it was cut short. I wore it that way until recently. I've got tons of hair. I don't think your theory holds true.

  • That's a new one! and completely wrong... the length of the hair does not matter
    *long hair can appear thicker though-depending on the cut and curlyness/straightness of the hair
