    I've always used them to after they dried, but I am starting to hear that it was actually the other way.

    Plus, how do you make side hair fall forward without looking like such a doofus? My hair generally falls the same way that Chace Crawford's hair falls, but it just doesn't get as messy-stylish as his. Mine just tends to look like a dummied up asian hair... [​IMG]

    I think I was in high school the last time I used a blow dryer.

    0) brush
    1) gel
    2) brush again
    3) let dry
    4) spot brush to remove any 'gooky' spots

    Soft products, (leave in conditioner and non sticky oil/wax products) use after drying while hair is still slightly damp. Finish drying after application and volume will increase. Use sticky products (gel and spray) after hair is completely dry.

    What men blow dry their hair? Or need to add "volume" to it?

    +1 My method exactly. I have ultra-fine dirty blonde hair. I'll do the gel thing very occasionally using the cheapest gel I can buy at Dollarama. Just a dab spread on hands & work into hair. I never blow-dry it. If I do longer hair I style, let dry, then I just wet my hands shake off excess water, and pat down any frizzies. Sometimes takes 2 tries. I may use gel more in winter when it's so dry my hair needs help.

    No. To the blow drying. Also, to the hair products.

    Wait, you smell that?
    How about putting this under health and body? How is this men's clothing?

    You need to step away from your blow dryer!

    why? what's wrong with a man using a blow dryer? It takes too long for my hair to dry on its own (especially when it gets long), and I find it easier to style with since it'll let me push my hair in a certain direction.

    If you need to use a blow dryer I would say your hair is way too long...unless you are a woman of course

    I usualy dry my hair first at least a little, I find the product works better when my hair is not soaking wet.
