Certainly oils in the diet make a difference for the scalp.

But for the lengths of the hair? Not so sure... Mine is sadly bone dry, maybe because I'm naturally curly (more like wavy) and my hair is pretty long... I noticed dying it makes it dryer but no way to stop this because I'd not showcase my white strands

Talk to a doctor and figure out your t levels.
Hahahahaha!

It is a joke and it is not.

First of all, I was hoping people will figure out when my name ends with -ix and my profile pic is Obelix, I might be Gaul as well (actually, I am Boii from Western Carpathian )

Second, answer to you question is Yes

Yes, it is a good idea, I might want to see doctor about it.




Thank you all once again for responses, I am reading about this, I will read all your advice

Dietary changes promote healthy growth of hair but won't necessarily help hair that's grown out of the follicle which is effectively dead. The only vitamin that helps 'dead' hair is vitamin A since it's integral to the production of sebum which is the waxy oil that coats hair so it appears healthy. But if you're using a strong shampoo and don't brush the sebum down the shaft, it won't matter how much vitamin A you consume.

Unhappy Neat hairstyle for long male hair?

Guten Tag,

I have a huge problem with my hair.

To sum it up, this is pretty much my head right now: https://c8.alamy.com/compde/gp48jb/e...opf-gp48jb.jpg

I totally love this guy's hair: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOz8URORp_k (and the rest too...professionally, of course! )

Anyway, my hair is probably too short right now - about 25 cm long.


So I would like... can you post me some cool hairstyle ideas here? if you care? I am googling like crazy, but can't find anything...catchy enough. since my hair is really bad, I need to put the together, like those dreads... somehow...

I am writing this thread from pure desperation... So thanks for any kind of help!

Your hair is only 25cm long and completely ruined. The combination of length and ruin makes me suspect that the hair you have is really old hair and you don't need to get it trimmed much - is this the case? If so, the only way to get long hair would be extensions. Some people are able to grow really long hair while others are not.

The thing with beauty is that we need to work with what we've got. I'd love to have thick flowing locks, but that's never going to happen. I'd also love to have a darker complexion but I happened to have been born with pale freckly skin.

If your hair isn't inclined to grow long and healthy, then bite the bullet and do the best you can with what you've got. I'd be suggesting taking it back short and then taking really good care of what grows back so that you don't end up looking like a llama again.

Of the white dreadlock wearers I've seen, yep, probably stoners who have progressive views and alternative lifestyle. And they also tend to be under 30.

Your hair is pretty short and ruined. Perhaps you can shave your head and start over?

You like that guy's hair and it's short, and if your hair is a mess, you should simply cut it short and have a good salon do it so it looks best. Take a photo or two of what you like for shape at least.

Don't try to stay in anything like dreads unless you're a musician or something. They look messy and dirty except when they're fresh. They're bad on your hair, makes it break off unless your hair is real strong. Stay a little more mainstream since you aren't really that type anyway and simply go to the salon for a trim once a month. Don't go the cheapest route. Don't do the $8 haircut. Go to a real salon, someone who knows what to do with hair.
