    I have a lot of hair, it's super fine and likes to stand on end and fly away, but it is very, very, thick. I'm tired of the bathtub getting clogged every couple of months, I was positive there was no way I lost that much hair. So I bought one of those screen net things that go into the drain hole to keep things you might not want down the drain from ending up there. I bought a set, one for Valentino who likes to drop my belongings down my bathroom sink, and one for my bathtub.

    Since Monday I have collected enough hair to upholster my furniture, build 10 nests for the little hens, make a nice little coat for Angel the Chihuahua, and maybe make a couple of cute cat toys!

    I had a ton of hair in that trap every single day! How can I not be bald by now? I didn't realize that humans have more hair than your average Yeti.

    I feel you, really I do. I have long hair, same texture as yours. I should be bald, but I'm not. [​IMG]

    I just don't get it, I know hair grows and is replaced,, but geez there is no way it could keep up with this! My students were laughing at me before they left my class for Art,, I had the big clips you hold paper with holding my hair back. Not paperclips, the twisted ones, the big ones!! The ones you pinch together?

    My long hair is really thick, and it gets into everything! I find it everywhere, and DH has had some strange findings, too, but no details about that!

    I have to use the screen in the tub, otherwise we'd be pouring all sorts of nasty stuff down the drain every other day, and that's not good for the septic tank!

    What really amazes me is that between the hair I lose and the hair my dogs shed, I have wall to wall carpet! And no installation required! [​IMG]
