    Was looking at this video and was wondering...How much time do you spend on styling your hair?

    When my hair is long it can take about an hour between blow drying, flat ironing, styling, re blow drying, re-styling, spray fixing and glossing (lolz). Right now it's short and it takes about 17 seconds to style.

    I have curly hair as well and gel can get in the way, especially during humid weather or wet weather. AXE makes great products for different hair types. I used to spend almost 45 minutes trying to calm down this tragic mess of a curly 'afro' before i discovered those products. Now, less than 10 minutes and I am ready to go!

    Average: 5 seconds towel drying.
    Max: 30 seconds applying gel, but very seldom.

    He's cute! He should've left his hair alone as he casually has it at the beginning.

    I buzzed it all off so I don't spend ANY time on my hair. I don't even shampoo anymore - I just use the same soap on my head that I use on my face.

    up to 20 minutes if I am going somewhere that I don't want to look like a somewhat shaggy-haired teenage kid. If I choose to stay home or hang out with friends, I usually towel dry it and it will dry somewhat decent.

    My hair is longer than average.

    <---- I get my head shaved purely so I don't have to spend any time on it.

    That's my reason and I'm sticking to it icon_biggrin.gif

    From 1997-2007 my hair was never longer than an inch and a half, and for most of that time it never got longer than a 4-guard on the electric clippers. I really loved having it shaved and rough looking.

    Since then, I've been on a three-year experiment to see what it's like to have long hair.

    I miss the days of 3-minute showers and stepping out the front door five minutes later. I miss the days of 105-degree heat that felt good as long as I was running/biking/walking enough to move the air over the sides of my high-and-tight buzzcut. I miss the days of not having to put a damn thing in my hair, like, ever, except occasionally sunscreen because it was so fuggin' short I'd burn. I miss being able to drive with the windows down without having my hair get in my eyes. I miss being able to lean over and kiss someone without having my hair get in their eyes. Yikes.


    BUT...


    The whole point of this kind of thing is to create an external appearance seemingly at odds with my self-concept, and then mine the contrast for personal insight. In that regard, I love the long hair, and I love the constant reminder not to confuse what I look like with who I am. Some days I think it looks good, some days I think it makes me look completely ridiculous, and some days it's just a bunch of stuff growing out of my head. But you know, is that any different than how it is for anyone? Everyone has those days when we think, "Ohhhhh... yeeeah, I am gonna knock em dead today!" and then days when we think "Oh jeez, where did my mojo go?"

    I think there's a strong conformity among many homosexual men that tries to approximate an external masculine cosmeticism to compensate for a certain sense of psychosexual lack, whether internal or external in origin. My goal is to throughout my life develop an ever-deeper sense of who I am in essence, regardless of appearances. Then, not only can I make wiser choices about the directions my life should take, I can apply that same facility to attempting to see others for who they really are, instead of just scanning the room for someone who meets a socially-mediated standard of visible "attractiveness" or "masculinity". There are plenty of butch-looking guys who waste money, are manipulative, unfaithful, selfish. Those characteristics are invisible, but I can't think of anything more essentially Manly than being a good steward of your resources, being straightforward and honest in your personal dealings, being loyal to your companions, and seeking the good of others when appropriate, even at inconvenience or pain to yourself.

    I shave my head. Every morning, I just get up and go. A bottle of shampoo can last me a year. icon_lol.gif

    I think people who have curly hair (including me) have it harder. I'm trying to grow out my hair and since it's naturally curly, i straighten it with chemicals. It's an annoying process. Anybody else have the same problem?
