Hi ,

Time for the man's view. I'm new on here (not an FM sufferer) but my partner has recently been diagnosed with FM. She had all her cut off (and coloured dark) a few weeks ago and absolutely hated it. I didn't mind, it has to be what makes her feel happy and attractive. It is now growing and she has just coloured it much lighter and it has tranformed how she feels about herself (for now anyway). Luckily her hair is quite fine so she won't suffer from the heavy hair thing. Yes it is tough for us OHs because we know you hurt but there's so little we can do to take it away - I have been living 'with it' for 8 months now and it has had a huge impact on how we live our lives already.

Get it cut , n tell him u had to try it, it will grow back. But also if u could percevere with it and grow it long enuf to tie it up, that also would be a good thing, mine was short last summer(short at back n longer at sides) n used to get so frustrating somedays, and most days used to end up having to wash it just so it wud fall right.

But now its to my shoulders and its easier to look after , if i have a bad hair day, its tied up and a nice clip to keep my fringe out of way, and sometimes I can get away without washing it for 4 or 5 days :oops: i know its not ideal but it depends on the kind of week i am having :wink: .

Whatever you want to do with it you just get it done, speak to the hairdresser and she should advise you too :D

I have long thick hair if it wasnt for my husband i would have to have it cut as i cant manage it.
Not only does he wash ,condition and dry it several times a week,he puts my colour on every 6-8 weeks.
Each morning and evening he brushes it,he does it bit by bit so it doesnt hurt.He is one in a million, so caring and understanding there is nothing he wont do for me and has been the love of my life for 35 years
Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to dance in the rain
