    ...Gotta big problem.
    I like to do alot of windmilling.
    And also verticle sledgehammers.


    My hair gets really tangled bros.
    I dont know how to stop it.
    After a show I cant even get a brush through
    it without ripping half it out. So I have to wait
    until the next shower and condition the shit
    out of it just to try and get a brush through it
    without pulling most of it out.

    What do I do?!?!?!?!???!?!?!?!????

    I never knew there exist terms for types of headbanging :lol:

    Condition your hair before a gig.
    Cut the tails once in a while.
    Brush you hair from the bottom to the top, not viceversa!
    Make sure your hair is healthy (Biotin, Vitamin E,... FTW)
    Get some intense hair cure from the store....

    If you headbang a lot you won't get rid of tangled hair but these tips should help minimize it.

    It also depends a lot on the hairtype, thick hair = less trouble. blablah

    Get someone else to play your instrument so you can concentrate on the acrobatics.

    The vertical sledgehammer is trademarked and not to be used outside the permission of darkness inc. :err:

    From bottom to top? How the hell is that possible?:err:
    Plus I have thinner hair, naturally straight. So it loves to
    wrap around itself. If the wind blows outside for more than
    3 minutes off and on. It gets tangled as fuck :mad:

    I think he meant using downward brush strokes of 10cm or less starting from near the end of the hair length. Once that area is done move up the hair length 10cm and start again. Repeat the process.

    ok...What do you do when you're on tour playing shows everyday and you don't have a shower nearby for a day or 4 lol

    Dealing with knots is a small price to pay to look good while rocking out.

    By small i mean incredibly painfull and tediously long.

    I found an old copy of Metal Hammer lying around before from early 2002 :OMG: and there was a thing about Machine Head on tour in there, apparently Rob Flynn didn't shower for either 14 or 19 (one of the two, i can't remember exactly which) days o_O

    Your hair sounds the same as mine^^
    I can have perfectly untangled hair and then tie it back before I go to bed and when I get up in the morning it's tangled again :mad:

    But before gigs I wash it with shampoo and conditioner and I find that helps a lot, as I think someone said earlier in the thread :)

    that's not so bad, my friend gets chunks of hair stuck in his upper strap button and tuning pegs. he handed me his guitar after a gig once and there was still hair around the straplock.

    OH okay... Sometimes I do this because its the only way to get a brush through it. It will not go from top to bottom without ripping it all to shit.

    It is a price to pay. Not to mention half the hair volume by doing it because
    reguardless of what you do you end up ripping some out every damn time.


    Rediculous :)

    Very.

    hm. You must have been referring to the cut your hair post above. n00b.

    Thats kind of grody. Reminds me of my old rythem guitarist, He played without a shirt sometimes at practice and he sweat excessively, So all that curly greasy looking hair, Was all over his fuckin back, Stuck on there. Looked like a goddamn siamese cat or something with all the loose stuck hairo_O



    I always use conditioner, Usually pantene proV moisture renewal.
    Maybe I need to switch it up, WHats the best conditioner
    you guys with thinner hair have used?

    Right. well hair isnt just "hair" to me. I look and feel alot more comfortable with longer hair. Just fits my features better on my face for one thing and i love my hair. Or else Id shave it. I have before, And hated every day of it
    until it grew back.
