    Default How does the hair get IN MY BRA?!

    I wear a shirt, and a sweatshirt and a coat for Pete's sake...how does the flipping horse hair get INSIDE of my bra through all of those layers????

    I have that problem with both hair and hay. Maybe it's the boobs fault.

    I think it works it's way through the clothes. Although considering the amount I find in my bra...maybe not.

    I still can't figure out how hay gets in there in winter when I have layers and a turtleneck on.

    It is amazing where horse hair can end up, either during clipping season or the spring shedding season. A few years ago, after clipping a number of horses, I felt what I thought was a pimple inside my nose. A day or two later, there was a pimple on the outside of my nose too. I had to squish it (yuck, I know), and out came a horsehair that had worked its way straight through my nostril, from one side to the other. Yuck, yuck, yuck. If horse hairs are determined enough to do that, it's no wonder they end up in bras!

    Over the winter I had fleece sheets on the bed. I know how my hair got on the pillowcase, I know how the cat's hair got on the pillowcase, but how the heck does bright orange horse hair (cats are not orange) get on my pillow!!!

    I know EXACTLY how your head hair ends up in your bra...when you pull your shirt over your head, a loose hair will follow. It always ends up tickling either your back or your cleavage.

    Do you have hay in your hair when you get dressed?

    I have the same problem with alfalfa leaves getting in underwear, even in the winter, thru several layers of clothes.

    I think that is one of the mysteries of this world that will never be solved.

    My freshman year of college my non-horsey roommate found hair from a horse that is not mine in her clothes. That one still getes me.

    Oho! Very true. That's why it only works one direction too... in, not out.

    I had a funny/awkward situation with horse hair once... my boyfriend was giving me a hug, and he came up with a bunch of horse hair. One was about human sized, and red (my horse is chestnut). He got all bent out of shape because he thought it was another guy's hair. No, just my horse... my other BF lol.

    well, however its getting in, for sure the bra is trapping it there. So let the girls fly free and the hair will fall right through your shirt...

    I remember my hairdresser telling me about "hair splinters" so I can totally believe that story about the hair in the nostril! So gross, but true! Hair has some weird way of working itself through your clothes. After I get a hair cut I always have little hairs everywhere no matter how covered up I was!

    Yep. My dog groomer got one in her nipple. She ended up having surgery to get the hair out.
