    Since I got my hair cut a few weeks ago, I've been getting less attention from girls, and I've lost my zen. I need my hair back!

    Any way?

    I prefer men with short hair too...sigh.

    You could try lusting after a pretty woman. This will lead to a slight rise in testosterone, which will promote hair growth...ummm...or at least beard growth. There was an old study published, okay, not so much a study as a letter, which was submitted anonymously by a wacky researcher who was living on an island for his research. He started measuring his beard growth, and noted that it always grew faster when he was expecting to leave the island to visit his girlfriend (how he got a girlfriend still remains a mystery).

    Seriously? I have noticed that my facial hair is growing faster this year... the year I sit next to the sexy chem girl I always hit on :wink:.

    I'm surprised you like men with short hair. I think it just looks goofy.
    My hair used to be like Ashton Kutcher's hair in the older episodes of that 70's show; sort of longish. Now it looks like his hair in the newer episodes; all short and awry.

    You can try to eat extra healthy food, it might help depending on what you're eating now :wink: but really, I think you'll just have to wait :)
     
  7. It's hard for some people to let go of the mullet. My thoughts are with you.

    I guess I'm just from a different generation. I've always liked the clean-cut look. Awry isn't good though...if it can go awry, it isn't short enough yet :wink: Long hair in the 70s was pretty scruffy. In the 80s it was more attractive, but then they were more of pretty-boys spending far too much time on their hair (I'm not interested in men who spend more time on their hair than I do), in the 90s it got shorter, but back to scruffy. I thought it was heading back toward shorter again, but a little tousled looking. You could always wear a hat until it grows in enough to have it recut by a better barber.

    Otherwise, not much else you're going to do to get your hair to grow much faster. Even faster is still pretty slow. But a good diet is supposed to help, or more that poor nutrition will slow hair growth I think.
     
  9. There is a additive called "MSM" that is claimed to enhance hair growth, although its mostly used for joint pain.

    Try the Ron Pompeil hair solution. I saw this on TV and it was... compelling...
     
  11. hehe Ron Pompiels "give me a hideous amount of money for something you can get far cheaper" hair solution. That stuff is a treatment of balding.. and thats not what this guy is after.

    Off topic: Proven treatments for male balding are - minoxidil and finasteride. Don't ask me how i know, and I won't ask why you want to know :)
     
  12. Ashton Kutcher short hair is definetely much cuter
