Re: Hair Loss

Hey Dave Theere has been a history of spam on this hair post for quite some time. I used to get very irritated and then good old harker showed us the way with his humour. Most of the sites that we are directed to are actually short term money lending places. My understanding of most of these places is that they are extremely high interest and pressurised return 😉 ... lots of vulnerable people get on this site and not all are computer literate, hence me always commenting if it is a spam. WHo did you get to remove hair on your free flap? Julie

Re: Hair Loss

Ahoy Sailor, Sorry if I spoke out of place and I do understand that people will try to flog things on different sites,So how do you differentiate between a person helping someone try a different brand of cream,spray or whatever the product is and the computer predator peddling their wares, it seems to me the only solution is just to not bother. tks for the friendly advice. Cheers Dave

Re: Hair Loss

Re: Hair Loss

Dear Alex ... is it a prerequisite to writing spam that you need to talk a load of rubbish before you drop your little advertising bit in there?

Re: Hair Loss

Hi Jules I think there has to be a postgraduate thesis, most likely a PhD, in research into why a blog on hair loss attracts so much spam. Any ideas? Cheers Sailor

Re: Hair Loss

I lost every hair on my body during chemo. Did it bother me? NO!! The only part I didnt like was no eyebrows or eyelashes. I loved the freedom of being bald. No more hair spray, shampoo, gel, etc. I dont like hats, and I tried on wigs at Look Good, Feel Better - they just weren't ME! Each to their own I suppose, but I, for one, loved being bald!
