Protracted Hair For Men

It isn’t always easy standing out at London Fashion Week. Among all the Hackney hipsters with their studded collars, metallic jackets and Prada mesas and the buyers and editors, dressed head to toe in Céline, one can easily finger like that tiny slice of a gherkin on a McDonald’s burger: bested. Not that standing out from the crowd was what I go to Fashion Week for – I indeed work there. I’m a writer. A pretty brilliant one. You should take on me. Get in contact – but no one’s ever complained about getting some notice from the It-crowd, right? Generally trying to avoid eye phone with street style photographers who don’t have a card and won’t report you what their blog is, I sometimes hide behind my braids. This, however, got me the attention of Men Style Fashion.

Why Have Extended Hair

A couple of years ago, I decided I wanted to grow my locks. Retrospectively, I guess this desire was born out of the frustration across looking like everyone else (coming from a rank in Germany I promise you’ve never heard of before where all and sundry does in fact look the same). Funny enough, the most recent time I had a haircut was in the summer of 2010. I don’t remember getting my ringlets cut prior to that. I guess it must have been in 2007 or 2008, circa the same time Britney Spears had that infamous haircut. By now, my tresses looks pretty unstructured and barely touched. There are no evidences left of a certain ‘shape’ and every single hair has its own in detail. It often looks wild and messy and – dare I say – reminds me of a someday when rock stars didn’t have glam gangs yet and campaigned for a better world while the wind blew via their hippie hair. While this all sounds fetching good, some might wonder how my hair isn’t at least 50% split ends after years of not wounding it.

How To Maintain Long Hair

First of all, I always wash it using ice distant water which closes the outer cells your plaits’s cuticula consists of (seriously, Google it!) and prevents it from revenge oneself on frizzy. Also, I never blow-dry my hair. When it draw nigh to the products I use, I like switching it up with currently about 5 sundry shampoos in my shower. I like Dr. Hauschka and generally try to look for firms that don’t test on animals. The best thing I ever did to my tresses is argan oil from Arganic – 100% pure, organic and cold-pressed; it is the first-rate argan oil you can get. Since it is not diluted, even a few drops left in your braids for about 20 minutes before washing it out will do mind-blowers. It really nourishes hair (and skin) without getting it unctuous.

The Power Of Having Long Hair

If this makes you privation to grow your hair, I’m telling you go for it! It’s the best conversation starter constantly and helped me getting hit on by designers and models in the past (models have sex my hair – all of them). And what would LFW or LC:M be without a good hussy that never turns into anything but heartbreak? Specifically: New York Fashion Week.
