Josh, I think the only haircut that is truly "low maintenance" would be a VERY short buzz or no hair at all. Personally, I keep my hair like this. When just out of the shower, it hits about 1/4 inch above my eyebrows (sometimes a little higher). I squirt three pumps-worth of Aveda phomollient into the front and mess it around. I blow it dry (usually about thirty seconds). And when it gets the desired scruffy look, I dab a fingertip of Kiehl's gel in it. I leave the top, sides, and back dry and natural. At the current medium length, my hair is wavy and it flows nicely. Mike, For years (three to be exact) I had the same fear. I told myself. "My hair is me." I had long bangs and long everything else. When my hair gets longer than two inches it gets UBER-curly.. I would get out of the shower and dry it with a towel. I'd wrap some strands around my finger so they would curl more. At some points- just before a well-deserved haircut- it looked almost like a fro. I liked it and everyone else did. So I stuck with it. Last summer, I attended a Youth Leadership Conference and was convinced I needed "suit hair." So I cut it in the fashion described earlier. That was nearly a year ago, and I'm fine with the new 'do. So there's my input. Good luck with any decisions on hair, everyone. It's hard to make drastic changes.
