Just The Right Words for Hair

by Nancy on February 3, 2013

file0001270100514You’d think with the vast quantity of words in the English language that we’d have one for the day you wake up and your hair won’t do anything. It’s grown that infinitesimal amount that weighs everything down and sends you to the calendar to check the date of your next hair cut.

Joan, Shannon (our friend and hairstylist) and I coined the term bangphlasia to describe when our bangs get too long and are driving us nuts but we have yet to come up with a word for when one’s whole head of hair gives up the ghost at once. So, this post isn’t so much about a just the right thing, it’s a call for help to create just the right word. Suggestions?

P.S. Speaking of hair words, I discovered that in Japanese there is a word for when you look worse after a hair cut, age-tori. May you never suffer from age-tori!

Good point. For people like me with straight hair, overgrown hair goes limp. For people with wave and curl it goes wild child.
