    Have any of you ever caught yourself just staring at your scalp in the mirror, like you're watching for new hairs to sprout? Every now and then I catch myself staring at my hair line in the mirror all squinty eyed, like I'm willing my hair to grow, and I have to laugh at myself. "You will grow....NOW!...okay...NOW! Hmmmm...that didn't work...pause...NOW!!!"

    Lol. Needless to say, this "treatment" has not resulted in miraculous regrowth, either. :)

    I do stare at my scalp in the mirror.

    I try to compare in my mind, to the best of my knowledge, how it looked last month -- or the months prior to that.

    When it's wet, I cannot stand the site of myself, unavoidable as it is.

    I sometimes have to run out of the refuge known as my bathroom for what ever reason, and do so with a quick and sudden sweep of it all into a side part, lest I am seen with my centre part and all it's moth-eaten glory!

    crap.

    I wish I could have a forehead reduction. :woot:

    Glad I'm not the only one. ;) I hate looking at my wet hair in my mirror, too. Unfortunately, my bathroom mirror expands the entire length of my wall. EEEEEEK!!!

    It's comforting in a way that others feel like I do! I always felt like I was the only one!! I hate anyone seeing me with wet hair & never go swimming now (umm...suppose I could wear a swim hat). I always carry an umbrella in case it rains as well. :(

    I try not to look at my head. It just makes me sad. I'm always looking at every women out there though. I will look at every person that walks by me and try to figure out what type of hair loss they have if any. I know it's crazy! :crazy: The other day I said to my husband "I'm afraid I have a bald spot in the back of my head, but I'm to afraid to look".

    I do this, too! I was talking to my sister a couple of weeks ago and was stealing glances at her noggin while I was talking to her, hoping she wouldn't notice. After about 15 minutes, she asked me, "Is there something wrong with my hair?" BUSTED!!!

    But yes, I am a scalp looker. :)
