infinitefriend9 saidBasically, how much do you invest in grooming to look your hottest?
Why do you think it's worth investing so much?
Is looking your hottest important to you?
Looking good and well groomed is important. But I've never tried to look hot.
I buy the cheapest clarifying shampoo I can, as recommended being best for my hair type by an ex-BF who owned a salon. I use nothing else, not conditioner or gels. My current barber endorses that. I wait until they go 2-for-1, buy a bunch, cost under $2 per 30-oz bottle.
But I've begun using a barber again, used to cut my own. All my friends are impressed by what a great job he does, and for $20 a visit. I don't dye my fairly recently grayed hair. Nor do I even use a hair dyer on it. I simply comb it still very wet from the shower and it dries and holds as I want on its own. No time wasted with fussing there.
I use ordinary inexpensive bath soap, no body washes. And no skin lotions, no colognes or other scents. I do have to spend much more time keeping facial & body hair under control now that I've become older, I think that's my biggest time consumer, so I don't look like a werewolf. But that only costs me my own time.
And not to make me look "hot". That's a young man's occupation. Although even when young I never went that route, anyway.
