My hairstyle has changed over time, but the products I use are a major part of who I am, which is strange because I tend to shun such capitalist thinking, except in grooming.
Dab of brylcreem as conditioner, Byrd Pomade to hold it all in place, safety razor shave with Astra razors, and a splash of Clubman Bay Rum aftershave.
I think its more of how those products came into my life rather then the quality of them.
I thave a paradoxical relatiionship with it.
It is very important to me and at the same time i don't care much about it. I care a lot about how i look and hair is to me a huge part of it but at the same time i don't care the hair specifically.
I am never happy with how it is cut and always try new cuts but none work the intended way.
i hate it
but i cant shave it
because i have an even more disgusting
disgusting weird skull shape
I'm getting seriously bold at the age of 18, so I will eventually shave it after I finish high school. Until then I guess I want to have as long hair as I can, before saying sayounara to it.
I have really messy curly hair that has always been hard to mantain. When I was a kid my mother just got it trimmed every time to the bare minimum, and even then I never combed it or brushed it so it was always messy and uncared for. Then as I grew and was able to get it long, it got worse. First because I still never combed it I got it tangled horribly. Then when I tried to get it long again I looked like sideshow bob from the simpsons, and people would yell that to me on the street…. I gotta say I'm also skinny and my hair bulks up and goes in all possible directions and it's impossible to give any shape or order.
Then I got myself some dreadlocks made but they didn't last long, then I shaved my head bald and went like that for about two years, until I left the razor on an ex-gf's house (she sent me back almost everything but the razon, even a Bookcase she had gifted me and now instead she gave it to my roomie) and I started growing my hair long. 6 months after I had a messy head again and my gf insisted getting me a decent person haircut. Now I look actually pretty good, it's the first time I like a haircut I have (besides baldhead, which I used to like a lot too).
I hardly get a chance to wash my hair though.
My hair is a very intrinsic part of my life and experiences.
