Hair Direction? (in Off-topic)
February 4 2007 7:39 PM EST
I know this may be a weird topic, but let me explain with a little background. You know those spirals on the top of your head that control the direction of your hair? While most people have one, I have two. Basically, it means that my hair is growing in different directions in different spots and it I have to constantly snip off little bits here and there to make both sides of my head look symmetrical. Like on the right side of my head my hair grows downward, but on the left side of my head, my hair grows forward. I was wondering if there was anything you could do to change the direction in which your hair bends/grows over time. My hair is too short for a comb to be effective.

Go for the 'messy' look.

Keep all of your hair at 3/8ths of an inch long. Direction won't matter much then. I just trimmed my hair down to the 1/2 inch again today, felt good. It was getting unruly. I don't have differing directions, I just have several spots that "poof", and I refuse to maintain my hair or by any sort of product (other than a razor) to kep it looking acceptable...
Shave your head. Think of all the money you can save on hair care products and hair cuts by just getting some cheap clippers:)

I can't go for the messy look. My hair is too dull and would eventually just go back to its dull shape anyway.

I'll 3rd the shave your head idea.
Buy yourself a set of clippers, clip on the 3/8' attachment, and go to town.

I guess no one has a real solution then. I hate the way my head looks when it's shaved.

Then go really long so the weight of the hair drags it straight. Then braid it for the Pippi Long-stocking look.

wear a hat? become a hat person?
I agree messy look works fine, if water doesn't work, get some hair product, and thinly put it through all your hair.

ask Flamey about some of the products he uses ;-)
it's called "product" not products...heheh
I buzzed my head this morning, noticed I'd gone too far south with the buzzer, and was going to have to use the razor on my face anyway, so I bic'ed the skull as well as the jowl...nice to be shiny clean for a day!

That double spiral is called a double crown. I've got one as well. Add to that when I was younger I also had very curly hair. Looking like Krusty the Clown is not a good look when you're 16 and trying to impress the ladies.
Shave it off. If you keep shaving it off through life then nobody will notice when you start going bald. ;)

Grow it slightly longer, add some strong gel and viola!
You'd probably have to go for a slightly messier look though. Failing that, grow it longer then that, add stronger gel and spike it.
how about duct tape. fixes everything ;)

it may be turning circles but at least it isnt turning loose!
February 5 2007 3:23 PM EST
ya have 2 options...
grow it long
cut it short
the middle man is a a difficult route... so dont do it :P. Having to gel your hair every day to make it look good is a pain...

Takes me about 2 minutes to gel my hair in the morning and its slightly curly!
