I also have grown my hair well beyond my shoulder (maybe that would be arm-pit length? there just is no other part of the body there to describe its length tounge1).

Well, I'm studying information technology and there are a lot of long-haired guys here so that's quite common. And I listen to metal virtually all the time, that's why I let it grow.

But it's starting to get really thin now so I'm afraid I can't keep it long for much longer (pun tounge1).

Do you actually prefer to wear them loose or do you wear it as a kind of ponytail/whatever?

I wear it loose, but put it in a ponytail if I'm playing sport, cooking or doing anything where I want it to stay out of the way smile

time for more srs discussion on hair. Particularly, haircare.

Where does everyone stand on conditioners and volumizing shampoo?

I use conditioner every day- no volumizer (though i should).

By the by, Herbal Essences. You won't regret it.

I only use normal shampoo and conditioner, but not daily. That's too much imo.
And I prefer to always let it dry instead of using a hair dryer, unless I have to.

I seriously can't go without the conditioner I have to say. Garnier Fructis (or however it is spelled) for me. I tried 3-4 other types of conditioner, too, but they were all like more like water compared to Fructis!

First, I'm new Hi All, smile

I have also wavy long hair already 2 years..., I suggest that you normal shampoo every two days, or if necessary when it's too dirty.

I use normal shampoo everyday, and never use conditioner. I then dry it as much as I can with a towel, and give it a brush. I then give it another brush when it's completely dry - I never use a hairdryer (I don't actually own one ).

What do you guys do when you have a haircut? I don't have one very often, but when I do I usually have it layered so that there is some variation in the length of my hair. I find that this looks much nicer than all of my hair cut to a uniform length.

I have hair that goes down to about my shoulders, so its right on the line between long and short. Long hair is much more manageable if you can find the right kind of shampoo and conditioner wink5

Don't forget: If you want long hair, that doesn't mean you will not have to go to the barber anymore . Just remember that when you go, tell that you are growing it and they won't cut off too much. If you don't, you will get dead points at the end of your hair and then it gets hard to brush and will look messy.

I experienced that when I do not wash it daily with shampoo and conditioner, it will lose volume and will look greasy. After showering, brush your hair and let it air dry, then brush it again. If you use a wind blower every day, your hair will become unhealthy. Besides, if you let it air dry and brush it again after, it will have a lot of volume smile.
Tip: Try out if your hair looks better if you shower before going to bed, or if you shower when you got up in the morning. That is a huge difference!

And I agree with the rest, wind = deadly for your hair. You won't be able to have your hair properly until the next time you shower tounge1.
Tip: Keep a brush with you! Long hair won't just stay perfectly for the whole day if you do not brush it.

Hope you will have healthy and nice hair this time!

Hey guys, I've always been interested in having long hair, I was pretty close at the beginning of this year, but I just couldn't handle it anymore.

In my early teen years my hair changed drastically, it became semi-curly. And now when I let me hair grow more than it ''should'' it becomes a big puffy affro cry and it never seemed to fall, the cool way.

I'm planning on giving it a try one more time. My hair is short at the momment though.

I just wanted to hear some suggestions/experiences or anything regarding this, specially if you have long hair yourself!


My hair was quite long about a year ago, but it used to get in my way quite a lot lol, so I decided to get it cut short. but since I've been growing it back but it's not growing correctly. I would suggest growing it but only to s length that you feel.
