I'm growing my hair to nirp length. Don't ask why, it's just something I have to do.

Regardless, what should I be doing to it before it gets that long in relation to cutting/trimming it? It's on just really spilling out of my collar now, but it's very "bottom heavy" and I'm looking to avoid a pseudo-Osmond-do if possible.

We have a hair growing thread over here >>2783, but since no one but me has posted there in a while and /poof/ is sometimes a bit of a graveyard, I'll forgive your eagerness (and your Fabio picture).

If you were just starting, I'd say crop the back and sides as much as possible, it tends to look much nicer growing out if you let the top get long before letting everything else sprout. Since you're already over the collar now, though, all I can say is persevere. You probably won't look how you want to look for a very long time. My advice would be to find someone with similar length/texture/colour hair to you and style it in a similar way as it grows. Also, believe it or not there are some ways for men to tie their hair that look alright, if you ever find that it's getting to be a pain.

I started visiting a website called The Long Hair Community that has a discussion forum full of oddballs and fetishists and people who dry their hair with old t-shirts. If you can get past their eccentricities, the people there have valuable advice to offer on nirp-length hair (which they revealingly call 'bra-strap length' regardless of gender). Which reminds me, it's worth mentioning that facial hair helps and generally compliments grown out hair. If you can grow it nicely, I recommend it.

Good luck, adventurer.

I'm intrigued now. Are you an actor? Nah, they've got wigs for that. An undercover policeman? A spy? Or are you just doing it for a girl?

Maybe the girl is himself. Maybe that's why he's growing his hair like a girl. For the girl inside him.

4758 God damn it I hate windows, I typed out a whole reply and then it crashed.

It's going well enough. The hair's not looking too goofy. However, it does sort of "fan out" when I walk.

Still, if it's horrible by the new year then I can still just lop some of it off, get it bleached and go around making shit pop-art.

My first reply was so much funnier, man you don't even know there were semi-colons and everything.

Getting compliments and comments all around this Christmas season, very pleased. Even an interviewer mentioned how different I looked with short hair when checking my ID. I can actually see this being my new thing, lads. I'm leaving it for at least another six months after this.

What about OP and others? Everyone brings up this sort of thing when families get together.

New tip, lads: remember to brush your hair back before you go at your face with an electric razor. Just shaved some of my bastard fringe off.

>Or are you just doing it for a girl?

One very late comment on this. It may seem a bit stereotypical, something everyone says, but I've definitely found it to be true: long hair on lads polarises opinions a lot, especially around young lasses. The upside is the ones that do like it tend to like it very much.

More importantly I like it, but y'know, I'm a /poof/.

It was a satire of the effete ponciness generally ascribed to those with long hair. In my case, that's not totally incorrect.

Also, yesterday I was misgendered by a 5 year old, which was fun.

I've avoided this problem by keeping face hair and generally being a muscle Mary. Although it is still quite cute to get mistaken, in a way.

It used to happen all the time when I was 17. Now I'm 19 and it's basically never.

Lately I've noticed my scalp has been very dry, not to the point where I have flakes in my hair, but it's nearly there. A bit of teasing and flakes do appear.

Does anyone have any tips for keeping it fresh and moist, like a cucumber or a hippo?

- Drink lots of water and get some good oils in your diet
- Exercise helps to regulate the distribution of sebum
- Don't roughly towel or blowdry your hair after showering, just tamp it down with something soft
- Consider switching to a less harsh shampoo and conditioner, try different things until you get results you like

There you go, that advice was well worth the wait, right?

Gentler shampoos, and better moisturiser. But not too much or you'll have perpetually greasy hair.

I like that threads on .GS have such longevity. I'm still growing, and was most recently compared to one of the BBC musketeers. The good looking one, whichever that is.

OP here, it has been two years since I last had a shear, but twice this week I've been inspired to do so again.

First it was a dream in which I had short hair and enjoyed it, and because you should do everything your imagination tells you to my mind was already made up. But just now I started watching Prometheus and remembered that David was the reason for another haircut soon after I first saw the film. That guy's so cool looking.

I'll be handing in my Long Hair Club membership card and club issue Browning 9mm later this week.

I can live with that. Though I have since had it trimmed back.


Godspeed, lad. I think everybody in this thread has probably cut a bit by now. The point is to try new things and see if they look good (or shit). Hope your crop serves you as well as it did in your imagination.
