What is a really good hair gel that’s completely worth the money? I need help finding one. [R]

I want one that keeps my hair in place for the most part, but doesn’t look like it’s gelled if that makes any sense. Like.. I don’t want it to look hard. Any recommendations ? I can never find a good one. I am male with wavy short hair. I usually style it in a fohawk with just water but that doesn’t last long

Dudes with long hair, how did you survive the awkward in-between stages? [R]

I'm currently in the process of growing out my hair because I want to enjoy it as long as I have it which, genetically speaking, isn't likely to be a very long time.

I also lost my dad to cancer and wanted to donate my hair to be used in real hair wigs for chemo patients.

Right now my hair is at a super awkward length where if i just leave it be it is long enough in front that it will hang down my face just far enough to cover my mouth.

It doesn't really want to keep out of my face and I don't know how to wear it in a way that doesn't look weird.

I could seriously use some help unless i want to find a picture of myself on /r/cringeanarchy very soon.

Edit: It's not long enough for a bun or ponytail yet, that's the problem.

Edit 2: I'm 17, in my second semester of university now. Everyone is way older than me and im in a gigantic ball of awkwardness, so I might as well ride it out.

Edit 3: have some almost fitting quality music

Yup, I have hair down past my shoulders and this is how I dealt. Buy a thing of this crap, put a small amount on your hands and rub them together, and then run it through your hair while dry. Will keep the hair back and out of your face for quite a while.

Then furiously scrub your hands in a futile attempt to get it all off, curse as you frantically search for just anything to wipe them on, realize you didn't rub it through your hair well enough and there's a blob of it that makes you look like you eat straight butter all sloppy, rinse and repeat every day.

Depending on the type of pomade you get, it might leave your hair looking greasy. There are some similar products that don't give it that look.

i had this same question probably 15 years ago, after getting fed up with my gel pretty much turning to flakes, there was this one dude in school who just had amazing hair, so I had to ask him, it was pomade.

specifically this one, although there is a much bigger selection these days, this is the only one I tried. Unfortunately I didn't have enough hair to care about using any by the time it became more popular. Used to have to go to salons way back in the day, but now you can easily pick them up at walmart.

it's one of the best products I've ever used, you get just the right amount of the "gel" look without it looking wet (it looks more shiny and healthy, but not like you stepped out of a shower), it holds in place ridiculously well, never flaked, and I didn't have to use much to be effective, it also smelled great but that's probably more preference. I was a cheap ass and happily paid 20 for it back in the day since it lasted so long, looks like competition has brought the price way down.

Sounds pretty much like my hair and routine for work. Go for American Crew Pomade man. Usually lasts a solid 8-9 hours before I even have to start pulling it back, but I've already left the office at that point so I don't really mind.

I'm thinking about getting this haircut. What do you guys think? Pics of me included. [R]

Try using a pomade. If you want to stick with American Crew, they make a pretty good one.

Waxes, fibers, and clays will generally give a dry look. If you want it to look shiny, or almost wet, stay away from anything that says "matte." Those try to make it look like you don't have anything in your hair.

More seriously, lets talk about that inimitable ABCDesi style.

The costume design people on Mad Men use American Crew Pomade to replicate that look. Fair warning - this product can leave your scalp flaky and dry.

Guide to Growing Long Hair? [R]

Is there, or can someone create, a guide to growing your hair long?

I've been growing my hair out for about six months, and have some questions that would probably benefit anyone who is thinking of doing so. I haven't done a lot of research, but a quick web search gave me the basic advice that "if you want long hair, don't cut it". :-D

  • Who (what kind of hair/weight/features) looks best with long hair?
  • What are the phases you go through when growing your hair out?
  • Should I really just never cut it?
  • Should I do any touch-up grooming like trimming ends, neck, or sideburns? If so, how often?
  • Do I need to style it one way, or can I wear several different styles when it is long?
  • What products are good for long hair?
  • What products are good for long hair if I'm on a budget? :-D
  • Should I shampoo my long hair every day?
  • What tools (brush, comb, etc...) should I use with long hair?
  • How do I tame my mane when I look like a lion after I've slept?
  • How do I know when it has reached the right length?
  • How do I get through the awkward lengths?
  • How do I know when it is too long?
  • What styles should I avoid (e.g., Mullet)?
  • How do I find someone I can trust to cut my long hair well?
  • Where can I find long hair trends for this season/year?
  • How can I speed up morning care/grooming of long hair?
  • Any other advice?

All the American crew pomades are good in my book since they are readily available almost everywhere, they rinse out easily without leaving much gunk, and they give hair a natural look, and a little bit (about a dime's worth) really goes a long way with damp hair.

AC Pomade This one is good for having a shiny, easy, slicked back look Justin Timberlake Just becareful on how much you apply because too much and your hair can look very weighed down, greasy, and a gunky mess. Murray's Pomade and Suavecito are cheaper and yield the same results however they do come have a smell and murray's is hard to rinse out.

AC Fiber This one has a clay-like consistency and really is best for molding short hair or fixing the front of your hair. Matthew M. has the front fixed while the rest of his hair has a lighter pomade/conditioner mix to show his waves. AC fiber has a wax finish and it doesn't dry greasy giving a natural look.

AC Grooming Cream This one is the best of both worlds especially for curly medium hair. It's not too greasy or waxy, medium hold and has a great healthy shine when applied.Adriane Grenier This one is great all around, I've used Kevin Murphy's easy rider it yielded similar results.

Pretty much in the world of pomades you will find these 3 types of pomade some will be oil, wax based, or some inbetween depending on how you feel like fixing your hair that day.

As for sulfate-free shampoos they are nothing like regular shampoo. A shampoo is basically like putting dish-washing soap in your hair. It produces all this bubbles and foam that strip out all of the natural oils in your hair. What happens is that it leaves your hair dry and frizzy which is not a problem for straight hair, but for wavy/curly since the hair defies gravity it takes forever for that oil to reach the entire strand. Yes you can apply different oils or add moisturizing conditioners but really the best thing for your hair is your natural oils that are produced from your scalp. Sulfate-free shampoos don't bubble and they don't entirely strip the hair of oils. When I was using pomades I would shampoo every 3 or 4 days due to the accumulation of gunk from the pomades. Since my hair got a little bit longer, I don't use pomades anymore (only leave-in conditioner and mousse) I shampoo about once a week or whenever my hair gets really oily.
