Feeling bogged down with all the talk of recession and swine flu? Here’s one way to brighten up your day. Take a look at a new blog called which features extraordinary hair styles. While some of the people pictured have obviously invested a great deal of time and money to create an extreme coiffeur, the everyday school and family portrait photographs also reveal some intriguing and amusing hair styles.

While these unique looks make an individual stand out and provide audiences worldwide some amusement, over-styling and over-use of hair products has a detrimental effect on hair growth and is a common reason for hair loss in women.  For example, hair extensions, braiding and weaving all put extra tension on the hair follicles and in doing so pull the hair from the root causing traction alopecia. This can lead to bald patches and a receding hairline and is especially common in Afro-Caribbeans. Furthermore, excessive use of chemicals to straighten, perm or colour hair and over-use of heat to dry or style hair can cause dryness. This results in hair breakage, which also can lead to thinning hair.
