    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    if you think your hair is receding/thinning, and you're worried about it, take propecia. you'll thank me.

    i don't use product because i'm lazy, and i don't like that sheeny producty look. i know people love the super-pomaded #menswear look right now, but i've never been a fan. for example, i personally don't love bows or aeglus's hair. too much.

    I do sometimes think that. It certainly has receded in the last few years, but not much. My brother is four years older than myself and his hair is awful and has been since he was 19 or so. Maybe I've dodged the baldness gene?!

    Either way, my hairline is annoying and styles are pretty limited because of it.

    see a doctor if you're worried about it, they should be able to tell. or ask your barber/stylist if you've seen the same one for a few years. or don't worry about it.

    So people like bows and artishard (whose hair is clearly full of product) look tryhard and really bad?

    I think it's pretty shaky ground you're standing on my dude

    There's a difference between having a widow's peak and a receding hairline, a lot of people don't seem to realize that.

    Also, does anyone know any decent conditioner for average straight hair? All of the products I've tried end up making my hair relatively shiny but at the same time take away all the volume.

    Try the Khiel's stuff. Lots of options and they are solid bets.

    I have a weak hairline and a bald spot now that I'm on 40. Sucks. Big sad face

    I try to run a short look to keep it clean and it works in general. Not great pics but trying to help the thread (or something...) Note that this is NOT intended as a fit pic. Just hanging out during the summer.

    I like bows and artishard, so no hate, but yeah, I've been meaning to say that their hair looks way too gelled-up for awhile.

    My hair is really, really long at this point, and really thick, so there's just a ton of it. Not sure what to do with it but I don't wanna cut it.

    I haven't been here long enough to be familiar with their hair, lol... as a general rule I do think having a ton of product in your hair looks bad... it doesn't look natural. It also depends on the local custom, if everyone has hair full of gel then it would seem normal. I live near Boulder and Denver and it's not usual to see people using a lot of product around here. Kinda like wearing cologne, it's not the norm around here but if you go to the middle east it's customary for people to apply A LOT of fragrance, if someone did that around here it would get a lot of attention, and not the good kind of attention.

    But whatever, it's just my opinion, which is worth about $.02 anyway... [​IMG]


    KJ, I really like those cords you have for sale, wish the waist was 17" instead of 18"...

    Does propecia really promote hair growth? I spoke with my family doctor last year and was told that it only reduced hair loss. Plus you have to take it everyday for the rest of your life, or until you don't mind losing your hair.

    So for awhile I rocked the long hair or top knot.
    [​IMG] (dat hunch)
    [​IMG]

    then about two months ago i did this
    [​IMG]

    and a few days ago i just said fuck it and buzzed the sides, leaving the top long. plan on continuing this, want to get the top crazy long. i dig it.[​IMG]

    i think its of note to mention that in the last two photos there is no product in my hair. fuck that. stop washing your hair so often, it'll naturally become awesome. i condition once a week, wash as needed, usually every other week. i just scrub the shit out of my head in the shower with warm water. i work out everyday, my hair does not smell, nor does it look dirty. on the contrary when i had long hair, and i washed it every other day, it would get filthy rather quickly. meh. it looks a bit shiny/greasy in the latest photo because it wasnt fully dry from shower, otherwise it looks like in the other pic. i cant stand guys who look like theyre obviously wearing product.

    also, i didnt think my weight loss was going so well until i looked at this series of pics. gonna pat myself on the back.

    Hair looks good in both, but to be honest, I think if you have your beard how it is now with the longer hair it would look pretty awesome :)

    Haha, thanks. :embar: Right now it's literally mousse, blow dry bangs and sides while brushing, blow dry top upside down, and some smoothing cream afterwards. This is the simplest I've had it in years haha
