I believe the name I used on the site before was perhaps "SimbaNala"? I don't recall but it would have been around 2009 or 2011 when I was on here. I like the name Skyfather much better. It's sort of a play on Navajo. They believe there are two gods, Earth Mother and Father Sky. I changed it to Skyfather as so it doesn't seem like a Catholic prist. Maybe it's just me but that's why. LoL
I'm not upset at my parents, I can't force them to understand nor would I want to. I'm just relaxed about it and know that it wasn't the time but now is. Sadly because of the way the world is, I knew I wouldn't be able to do what I did in such a short period of time, get a good paying job, buy my first house, etc. So it had its trade offs but now it's time to begin again and third time is the charm!
My biggest concern about like a hat or beanie is heat building up while working out and I don't want that to lead to breakage? Maybe I'm being a tad bit paranoid though.
My goal is still about mid shoulder blades length but I'm in love with even the awkward phase, it makes me so happy everyone I feel my hair blowing in the wind and while there isn't much now, it's enough that I feel like I'm doing the right thing.
I do recall you on the forum before and thank you for the re-welcome lol. I do believe it would have been more in 2009 I was here before, but it's nice to hear from you again! :)
I've attached a photo I took a couple nights ago on my length currently. Off to a good start I'd say. This would be my four month mark approximately. Actually, it won't let me attach it because it's over two megs, so I'll have to do it on my computer instead of my phone, so I'll do it in a little bit.
: Welcome back to the mlhh Skyfather.I don't recall when you were last on this board but maybe you were using a different name then.I've been on this site actively since 2005.
: In feel bad that you were dealing with such resistance about having longhair.You would think in this day and age most people would be over the fact that some men like having longer hair.It doesn't hurt anyone so what's the big deal...right?
: In my experience I've been lucky that there was little backlash when I was growing out my hair and maintaining a longer length.I've had longhair uninterrupted for decades now :)
: As for tips I'll just mention what I do.My hair is straight and fine just so you know.I workout also and being my hair is long I just ponytail it while at the gym.In your case you might want to just wear a ball cap to keep hair out of your eyes and such.I do that for work as I tail my hair them place the tail under the cap.This protects it from the elements and minimizes tangling.Other than that I wear hair sticks while out on my leisure time.Loose is mostly when indoors at home unless its not really windy out.As for hair care I just shampoo and condition every other day which works for me.After the second day my hair looks flat and a bit oily.Hope this helps with you as I'm sure others will offer something different up.Mainly experiment and see what best suits you my friend.Have a great weekend and please do keep us posted on your progress.Cheers.
