A hairy question, for men.

Two possibilities that I am aware of would be a quality "leave-in" hair conditioner following shampooing or an oil like Vitalis. I have utilized each, but find that the leave-in conditioner tends to assist in keeping hair in-place. Most of the time, I have my hair cut at Cost-Cutters and purchase the leave-in conditioner recommended by my stylist. With either method, I have never had any problems with insects being attracted to my hair styling products.

The answer has always been easy. Air-conditioning is excellent, maintenance is zilch between cheap haircuts 10-12 days apart, and you're supporting our troops wherever you go . . remember all the WWII vets who never wore anything else again?

No other haircut is as hat-friendly, either. I do a short flat-top instead of this buzz. No.1 on the sides, and a landing strip atop. Maybe you'll have some interesting scars or indentations to story-tell with.



You can get you a MARPAT, Field Cover, Desert. I got one for Xmas awhile back from the resident Marine. Great rain hat.

If I go less than a #4 I tend to look like an escaped prisoner. It's the dark hair and pale (oh so pale) English skin.

I'm not, btw.

An escaped prisoner, that is.

I, too, have gone to the "50-60's flat top with the #1 on the sides. As for the insect problem, I use Absorbine jr. I put several DABS on my ball cap, and several elsewhere; NO not there. Learned that trick from a campground host/farmer.

So I tried using Brylcreem, "A little dab will do you." Well this also attracted flying insects. So now I use nothing, but my hair flies around and looks messy and I don't like messy.

Now, due to "Basil Cell Carcinoma," I have become a hat person. So my question for you is, what can a guy use to hold his hair, neatly in place, without attracting flying insects? Maybe this question is too late because I have become a hat person to shade my face.
Oh! Boy. What a problem to have - and I mean the carcinoma. Keep up the good work on that business.

When the day comes, if ever, I'll loan any who ask my barbershop instructions for the "1-1/2 Special". That would mean a 1-1/2 shoe for the part above the ears where some hair remains - for the rest - take 'er down to skin. Lots of hats help in so many ways.

Cedar lined cigar box?

No, actually I never get outside without a wide brimmed hat, unless it's cold enough to need my ears covered too.

Even those of us in areas w/o freezes need a bit of time when we can do longer-term projects :-).

Acrylic Nails are great for scraping off small areas of filoform. You'll want "French Nails" for a natural look.
