- Depression. Feeling depressed if someone else's hair is complimented when you are around.
- Fatigue. Anxiously awaiting the next moment to show your superiority.
What YOU can do to cure Big Hair Syndrome:
Get over yourself.
How family, friends, and strangers can help.
Family and friends: Be understanding.
Big Hair Syndrome is a serious matter. It severely affects the lives of your loved-ones. Although big hair is not a big deal for people with an ounce of common sense, having big hair means a lot to these people. Sufferers of BHS are often tired from looking over their shoulders and comparing their hair to everyone else's. They are compelled to gain approval and pretend to not value it. It must be hard to be thirsty for attention and pretend to not like it when you get it. Have pity on them.
Strangers: Try not to laugh too hard.
People with BHS genuinely believe that their hair is better than yours. Poor. misguided. people. They think that they are the only ones who know how to grow big, healthy hair. These people are unaware of the Internet and the ubiquitous nature of cheap, natural hair products ( Walmart sells Shea butter now, btw). Your hair will be big and fluffy soon enough. The only thing that they have on you is time. When you are around someone with BHS, try not to laugh too hard at their buffoonery and hum the mantra cleverly coined by Drake, " Fuck you and your time difference".
We need to make the world more aware of the pervasive nature of this illness. The CDC reports that 3 out of every 8 Atlantians have some form of BHS. Share this post with friends and family and help people with BHS get the help they need.
