Is she herself going to be doing the hair cutting, or will you go to a hair dresser? Maybe you can speak to the hair dresser about having a style that hides the situation?

I can't think of any reason why the hair dresser would not want to do your hair. I think the only reason they've ever refused is if there are active lice. And it doesn't sound like this is the situation.

I think you're extrapolating way far. How can this indicate aids, many people have peeling skin and flaky scalp, often from dandruff or dermititis or any kind of skin condition. Nothing has to indicate anything serious. Wash your hair before you go, and tell her you have a skin condition (you don't have to give details) and let it go from there.

How old are you? Why do you think she'd report to your parents?

thanks so much for your help- im sorry for being so obnoxious toyou, it want personal
so i went, and i was like have you ever heard of trichotila mania and she was like no, im sorry so i was like , ok so its an anxiety disorder where you pick at your skin (even though dermatilamania is the skin one- but NO ONE has heard of that) so i might have one or 2 scabs. so she spent like a minuete looking for them andwas like> where are they? so i showe her, and she was lke, will i hurt them i f i shampoo you? and i was like, oh no not at all so then that was it
and i love it finaly my hair looks good and she gave me a semi side part to hide the scab and my mother was like ohh, i love the part etc so it really worked out well
oh yeah, and she said that a lot of her clients ull ou their hair and asked if it was like the same thing, i was like yeah (i wasnt gonna tell her i pull too)
YAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!

Oh, I am so happy that it worked out. You are allowed to be obnoxious. I get the feeling it helps you sort your thoughts out. I kinda figure the more objections you can give me here, and if my responses are helpful, you'll be ready.

So I'm really happy and glad that it worked out and that you feel good about it and that she was able to help you feel pretty and look good!!!
