Hair Today...

I've had the Mohawk for over 2 years now, and I'm wondering if it's time to change.

I originally got it as a gimmick for a party and ended up keeping it because I liked the way it looked. I had to keep it short because if I let it get any decent amount of length I had issues with it in the car (specifically hair would be pulled out because my head was rubbing against the roof of the car).

I haven't had the 'hawk itself cut since late last year (since that was the last time I saw my regular hairdresser back in Brisbane) and the sides haven't been trimmed since a week before the move (late April). As a result I'm looking very shaggy at the moment, shaggy enough that you can't even notice the 'hawk.

The question is, what do I do with my hair? I haven't found a hairdresser here yet (to be honest I haven't really looked all that hard. Someone who cuts my hair has to be someone I trust, and life hasn't really been stable enough since the move to find someone I can trust), so if I decide to get a new do I'm going to have to find a new hairdresser or barber.

Options are:
1) Shave it all off. That was the original intent when I got the mohawk in the first place, I just got a bit distracted. The good thing is that it's easy to manage, so wouldn't need to find a hairdresser that I trust. Any one would do really.
2) Continue with the mohawk as it was. Means I would have to find a trustworthy new hairdresser.
3) Leave and let it grow. I've never had long hair before, so I have no idea what I would look like with it.

My original plan was to continue with the mohawk, but extend it further down to my neck and possibly let the hawk itself grow longer. However, after chatting with towkarn he's said he thinks I look better with a full head of hair instead of the mohawk, so now I'm torn on what to do. (Yes, I'm easily influenced. How many of you didn't already know that?)

I have very fine hair, so it doesn't hold a style well without using copious amounts of product, something I prefer not to do (a lot of you will know why :) ). Short is easier to manage (in terms of the hair itself, and for keeping the dandruff under control (I have very dry skin on my scalp, so I can't avoid getting dandruff)), but long would be interesting to try. I don't know. Any thoughts?

I speak from experience
Its cold in Melbourne at the moment. Go the full head of hair until later and then re-evaluate :)

I can recommend a good hairdresser...

Mario at Forecast, in Royal Arcade, off Bourke St mall. I have loved everything he's done with my hair, my mum's, my friend's (who originally put me onto him) her mum's... I'd love to say some guys as well but don't really know many guys who go to hairdressers - or don't know that I do, anyway.

(don't judge by my current hair - I haven't seen him since shaving it all off!)

If you let it grow, the Tea Tree oil based shampoos, both Standard and anti-dandruff, are good for fine hair/sensitive scalp combos.

Can you recommend any? I haven't really ever cared about what shampoo I use (I've always had short hair) so walking into the shampoo section of the supermarket always leaves me confused.

Mmm, hot shower...

Yes, yes it is a hot shower. I think I'll be taking one when I get home just to try and thaw out.

I turned on the hot water and got naked while it was warming up, and when I put my hands under the water to see if it was hot enough, they started tingling immediately... It felt so weird! And yet so good...

Yep, that happens every time I wash my hands because I only use hot water!

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
