I had thought that distorted follicles were the norm because of a post by dfahey I read a while ago, but now thanks to your response Seana, I now think that yanking only causes SLIGHT distortion and not HEAVY distortion. Thank you for clearing that up for me.
"I leap for joy when I get an occasional virgin hair client, but I don't see many like that and many will not let hair grow for 3-4 months or longer in my locale and beyond."
But maybe Dee's definition of "virgin" includes "never been shaved" as well as methods that detach the hair root from the papilla? I think we need a new word to differentiate between "never been yanked, as well as never been shaved nor cut with nail scissors" and "never been yanked but has been shaved or cut with nail scissors". I think Adrien's definition of "virgin" includes not having shaved:
"In this case, An area that you never shaved/waxed/tweezed (or you didn't touch it during at least 6 mouths) is called a "virgin area"."
"Is it pick on Seana Night? Cause I so rarely get a night off."
I just wanted to ask all the questions that had been lingering on my mind, some for years, before I would forget them. It's good that I got them all out of my system. It is only seeming like I pick on you, because you're the one who posts the most. At least lately. So you are usually the last person to have replied to a post. Also, I know that of the hundreds (thousands?) of people who post here, you are one of the few who would most likely know the answer to almost any question, so I'm glad to get your reassurance on my suspicions and uncertainties.
