If you don’t fancy the dreadlock look at present, though I think it might find great favour with the squirrels, and at the bar too, this is what I do to have low maintenance long hair. Apply lots of conditioner in the shower after shampooing and comb your hair then; it’s easy. Rinse. That’s it. I don’t comb or brush my hair any other time. Way easier than short hair. And anyway, why do you think God or Evolution made hair? Why, do be long of course. :o)
