So, all through high school I grew out my hair. The last time I cut it was actually my sophomore year, so 2017. I've been thinking about cutting it for a bit, maybe do a different hairstyle. Last night I was hanging out with a few coworkers, and I decided that I'm gonna shave my head, and let it all grow back. It'll probably take at least a couple years, but why the hell not?

Pic is me from like last January? I haven't even trimmed my hair since 2017 so I have bad ends now, and it's basically stopped growing. So the picture is kinda close to what it is now, just a bit longer (like a bit past my chest)

    Don't shave it completely. Start by cutting half of it and then trim the ends once every 2 months.

    It is a bit of a hassle, but it is worth it. Your hair looks great, btw. Complements from one long haired person to another

    PS. Avoid holding it in a ponytail for a long period of time 🙂

    @bytecode it has formed my hair in weird form that I can't simply brush off, unfortunately :/

    And potentially it can cause hair loss if it is too tight.

    @taho101 oh, my hair is naturally curly and it straightens a bit when I wash/brush it... always make sure the ponytail is not too tight... and I am sure bleaching it and then painting it blue damages it more than a ponytail :D

    Another male dev with long hair 😄 I have long hair but a lot of people tell me I need to cut it if I want a job. That’s one of the most annoying things I have to hear from people

    @Bubbles Yeah it really sucks to head that, especially when it's not true. I decided myself that I want to cut it all off, but I'm gonna regrow it.

    @infernalempress I’ve been thinking of cutting mine but it’s mostly because I kinda miss the way it was at a certain length but I still LOVE my long hair

    @Bubbles People also kept telling me that, they are just stuck in the middle ages... meanwhile, I have job paying 39€/hour (after taxes) and I have a quite long blue hair with blue synthetic dreadlocks :D

    @bytecode really nice. Btw, how do you color it?

    I wish to color at least a part of mine in red or blue.

    @taho101 not sure tbh, I did not know how to do it myself so I just went to a hair salon, showed them my synthetic dreadlocks and told them to match my hair color to those... but beware blue color is astronomically expensive... and long hair requires a lot of dye... and my hair is kind of special in a way that it acts a bit like a sponge so I needed even more dye...
