      Has anyone found that having their hair cut... the actual combing / cutting / drying process (rather than just the fact that your hair is shorter :oops: ) - makes your T change / go weird / buzz more / buzz differently ?

      No, I havent noticed this.I wear ear protection when I am blow drying my hair. I guess I am being overly cautious.

      No I havent had that effect, have you Jane?

      I also wear earplugs for hair drying, the hairdryer is actually quite a loud noise so I think it makes sense. I also wear them for vacuuming.

      Yes - yesterday. T changed - mosquito buzzing and poking became much louder and much more of it. I didn't realise that fiddling around on outside of head could affect T except for that 'banging fingers on back of neck' thing you read about every so often.

      What will you do then go hippy and let it grow :)

      I am in a state today. The right ear has come up full now and my head has been full of noise.

      Sorry today is bad for you Louise. My head is still absolutely full of buzzing noise - all over it. All day and all last night. Not the screeching from side to side tho... for that I'm grateful but the buzzing is SO annoying.

      Already a hippy - have been since I was 14 walking barefoot through the streets :oops: (although at 14 I was still
      going back and forth between motorbikes (with the hells angels at the isle of wight watching hendrix) and hanging out with the squatters. I enjoyed both! Always a hippy at heart tho.

      My hair does look a bit strange, now that I'm soooo much older, if it isn't cut, so I think I'll do it myself in future.

      Really do want to know if anyone else has experienced the same thing with hairdressers. I don't like being the only one :( It was only a cut - i didn't even have it washed (just sprayed with water) as there was no way I was going to bend my neck back over a sink....

      Hmm .. maybe dreadlocks :) - I remember my two eldest having those - I thought they were cool.

      Yes, long, grey dreadlocks!

      hmmm.. not so much of the grey :) maybe rainbow ones? with a few beads at the end that rattled and masked the t as I move... first grandson due in June may be able to use them as a rattle too - multi purpose!
