Hair Dye/Video Game Addiction - February 4th 2012, 07:58 PM

I've been dyeing my hair for about 2 years now. Its starting to get really bad. I only dye one section, but my hairs starting to fall out of my head. I do it to feel like im not falling into the background, but its not working.
Also, my favorite game broke(Skyrim). Its like my second life. Im struggling without it.
Im addicted to these things. I want to stop, but it seems impossible.

I love dying my hair. I do it often. i think there is nothing wrong with dying it as long as you remember to take care of it. Try to get some hair solutions that improve the look and health of your hair, and make sure that your hair gets all the vitamins it needs.

As for the video game, making having it break was a good thing? I personally love Skyrim. However, I've learned to handle my life first before I start gaming. As long as you balance everything out, you should be fine.

I like dying my hair. (Mostly I dye it in vibrant shades of blue or green because I like how it looks) and i also love Skyrim. If your falls out when you dye your hair, i think you might be alergic to whats in the dye.

As for video games, i suggest taking up minecraft as it is and endless game with new updates often, with a quirky retro theme to boot.

Not really addictive, just kind of distractions.

Not sure about your video game question, but I can help with your hair.
How often are you dying your hair? If you wait at least a month in between coloring, your hair shouldn't be falling out. You just need to take better care of it and use good moisturizing products.
I dye my hair often as well, if you go through my album it has some of the colors I've had. My hair has been bleached a few times as well. However, its still in good condition and relatively soft.
Wash your hair every other day to keep the natural oils in your hair, those are good for it. Washing it too much strips your hair of these oils. Also get a deep conditioner to use once a week, and a leave-in conditioner to improve the health of your hair.
They also make henna dye, which is actually healthy for your hair. It doesn't contain peroxide or other harmful chemicals. However it is a bit more expensive.
One last thing is if you comb your hair while its wet, use a wide-tooth comb. Regular combs can stretch out your hair which makes it more prone to damage.

And here you are living, despite it all.

I heard dyeing your hair a lot is not good for your hair. Not sure if its true. I have only dyed my hair once about a year ago. My hair is natural dark brown and I dyed it light brown. When I first dyed it I was scared and excited. Good thing the color looked good on me. I might dye it again not sure. I would like to dye my hair red like a soft red nothing to bright. But Im afraid work wont like red hair. Any ways good luck. You dont have to go extreme on the color your dyeing it can be as simple as mine was just a lighter brown.
