It's so hot today, when I worked outside, I had to put my hair up.

My hair was getting soaked with sweat. That's the first time this year for me. So have you had to put your hair up because it's so hot? For those of you without hair that you can put up, when was the first time you had to wear a hat? I've been wearing a hat on and off for a week now to keep from getting my head sunburned. So have you had to do things to keep your face from getting sunburned?

oh my, it was also so hot on our side of the world. I was literally just standing up, not doing anything, and I was sweating buckets. yikes. I long for the rain every single day, seriously.

Welcome person from the Philipines. During droughts, I wish the same thing. This is a new spring, a new growing year for us. We have had enough rain. Last year it rained every day, some days only a part of the day, but most days, all day. So this year, I'm hoping it doesn't rain much. It just rained yesterday. That is hot, when you're doing nothing and sweating. Thank you very much for your response.

In a Texas winter, you probably could, but not our winters.

I hate the hair down around my neck, I used to cut it short, but got tired of having to have it cut all the time, so I started putting it up.

Here, we grown hair for the wintertime. Many people cut it short for summber, but with a style that growns out well for winter. In sub-zero weather, you want all the layers you can get to keep you warm, hat, collar, scarf, hair, anything and everything, knitted necklaces even!

I don't like to wear a hat much, unless I have to stay for long hours in the sun during a school outing! I have noticed that the temperatures are getting higher. It is becoming hotter already and summer has still some weeks to come. I just try to keep away from the sun and stay in the shade as much as possible.

I'm under orders from a Doctor to wear a hat outdoors. My rosacea, also three medications with the side-effects of make my skin more easily burned. It's almost like being a medically induced Albino.

I would hate that. I get flushed from the sun, but when I am out of the heat I am my same old freckled faced self, only older.

Yesterday I did wear a hat to keep from getting sunburned, but today it is cloudy. So I just pulled my hair back when I took the dog for a walk.

Yes, there are other reasons to pull hair back.

It's interesting because it happened to me almost same time as you did. Last Saturday it was hot in the UK, I felt like summer came. people seemed all going out on the street or in shops. I was in a Japanese chain fast food restraunt called Wagamama. I had a bowl of spicy noodle. I felt so hot when I was eating my noodle, so I had to put my hair up. I also dressed spring clothes. I thought I made a mistake. I should have summer dress then.

Yes, we had a day that went to 80s. I had dressed for the 60s in the morning and thought I would be home by afternoon to change, but I wasn't and I was wishing I had summer clothes on. Thanks for responding and take care.

However the temarature in the UK is not stable. this morning I went out and felt very cold. Luckily I had my scarf. If I didn't have it I think I will get cold to walk one hour. I live in the south of the UK but recently the temperature of the country is a lot lower than same time of last year. This spring even the daffodil blossomed later than before. by the way I also write on helium. Look forward to your more articles.

I don't think I'm writing for Helium any more. I might go take a look at yours though.

There were two days this week when I would have liked to have put my hair up. Unfortunately I had it cut really short about a year ago. It is going to be about one more month before I can put it up. Hats make me hot, I do not wear them. I have moisturizer with sunscreen in it, and my hair is really thick so my scalp and neck do not burn. I do not seem to burn easily like I did when younger. Maybe it is all that healthy food I eat now that is helping me.

I started out a red head as a baby, my hair fell out, then came back in white blond, then it kept trying to turn darker. I was stuck with dirty blond hair as a teenager. Ugly stuff, everyone's hair had shine except mine. Then in my 30s people started calling me a brunette, light ash brown. Now it has some grey in it. My hair has always been thin, thanks to menopause, it's even thinner. I'm under orders from my Doctor to wear a hat. Three meds I'm on, blood pressure, rosacea, and allergies. They all make it easier to get sunburn. The only place I've ever not burned is my for arms and hands. Most sunscreens make my rosacea bad. I get hot in a hat, too and sweat more, but I will take the hat off in the shade and fan myself more. I want to loose weight and get rid of at least the blood pressure meds. All those hair colors, must have been a lot of people taking over a lot of people in Europe! I'm probably a Viking, a Swede, and a Roman!

I am mostly gray, on my dark brown hair. I am like a map of Western Europe, but no Spain or Portugal. I also have Native American roots. No meds, just vitamins, though.

I have found that aloe vera cools the pain of my rosacea. Lots of people tell me, "So you're a little red, why put a topical med on it?" Because it feels like a lit match is being pressed against my face. Another friend I had went out-of-her-mind with itching from rosacea. My aloe vera plants have quit growing. I think they need nutrients. Since they grow in poor soil, not sure what ones they've used up.

Well, you got yourself a good workout it sounds like. We had some nice weather here today. Sun and no rain. Still the wind though. I always wear cover on my face with sun block. I just naturally put it on both in Winter and Summer months. It automatically comes with the sunblock so it works fine.

Yes, people forget that winter can also be very sunny and in my area that it can reflect off the snow to get it 2xs.
