Weird Hair Days…

weird-hairI have stubborn hair. I’m not kidding and I’m not making things up. My hair – though considered to be the sexiest thing ever by women all over the world – does have it’s weird days, and today happens to be one of the weirdest. As a rule, I don’t use cosmetics like hair gels, hair sprays and hair wears and other strange inventions. I am quite proud of the fact that my hair, most of the times, does not need much coaxing to fall in place and look presentable. Today, it decided to revolt.

I tried all of the following methods:

  1. Hot water soak
  2. Cold water soak
  3. Jumping up and down
  4. Shaking my head from side to side, vigorously, trying to make it fall in place
  5. Talking to the hair softly, while running my fingers through it, trying to make them sit
  6. Screaming at them and fingering them violently (Fingering them?)
  7. Pulling a few out from the roots in order to threaten the rest
  8. Wearing a cap for ten minutes, hoping they’d sit properly

again-weird-harrWell, none of these techniques worked, and I had to resort to the most primitive of methods – I soaked them in water and while they were recovering from the shock and before they could spring right up, I put my helmet on and drove to work.

No luck. Any ideas, anyone? I don’t use a comb, by the way. Never have. So, if you have any ideas, then make sure a comb isn’t involved. 😀

  1. This has been my problem too! 😦 Tried everything from egg yolk and soaking my hair in beer…yeah those are the things that women do! 🙂 But I tried some guy things too, like not cutting it short and not combing!

    Hehehehe!! You’re back commenting! 😀
    And yes, I’ll read that post! 😀

    Oh, I’m so jealous, man! Some people looks so hot despite having weird hair! 😀

  9. LOL!! well, I don’t know if you’ll like this solution, but coconut oil is supposed to help keep hair in place 😀

  10. tell ur girlfriend for help or the best option is to go bald for a change ….for further hair advice call Salman Khan! hahhahha… 😀

  11. Try using a conditioner or try oiling ur hair..
    Or shave your head.. and u’re rid of bad hair days for life .. 😛

  12. I guess Nita’s advice will be the right choice .. Hair in Beer .. Wow, that will be great .. Even if ur hair don’t set properly, u can squeeze out Beer and drink .. Ek tir se do shikar !!

    New theme huh !! .. Wadde log, waddi baatein .. I hope u understand Hindi !!

  13. Soaking the hair in Beer is actually good. Beer has natural Conditioner effect (except the beer itself is artificially brewed). But you have to be very specific about which brand though, in anyways the hairs will get high but they will fall to the ground. Or you can also get a hair cut 🙂

  14. Oh dear God ! What problems have you created us with ?

    Everyone says cut it off, I would suggest you shave it off !! Yes man, shave completely !

    No one giving good suggestions, huh?

  15. hehehe.. Nikhil… I agree with Alice and Hope… all your problems can be solved (including hairy ones) by a simple technique. Get yourself a woman!!! 😀 😛 😀

  16. Dude, whats wrong with you…!! Hair Dryers are a boon to woman kind!!! You need to give that a try, trust me every strand will become disciplined!!!
