If you're a man who's been blessed with curly hair, smile! Women all over the world pay hundreds of dollars every month to pump chemicals into their hair, burning it to a frizz trying to make it look like yours-and you were handed your curly hairstyles on a silver platter!
That doesn't mean that curly hair doesn't get frustrating every once in a while, because it does. Curly hairstyles often have a mind of their own, ranging from the lanky, dragging curls sported by Mel Gibson in some sections of "Braveheart" to the tight frizz you see on Tom Hanks' head in "Big". If you've been letting your hair grow out into a "Surfer Dude" 'do just to keep it tamed, relax. There are hundreds of options out there just waiting for you to make the most of them.
Shave it off. Hey, it worked for Justin Timberlake! The short buzz is back, and it quickly solves all of the options associated with your curly hair. It can't frizz if it's not there, right?
Keep it short. If you aren't the type of person who enjoys walking around with their scalp shining through their hair, that doesn't mean you're doomed to a lifetime of 'fro. Keeping it short (as in, 1" or less) will create a trim collection of curls against your head that appears neat and tidy (or, in some cases, 100% curl-free).
If you want to keep your wavy locks but are sick and tired of struggling with them every morning, a little maintenance might be in order. If you're like most men you hate the idea of spending hours dumping goop in your hair trying to make it behave (and you've probably already tried with gallons of hair gel before coming here).
This is the time to break out a little preventative maintenance. Do you remember when your Granny told you that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure? She was right. There are literally hundreds of options available out there for out of control curly haircuts that will soften and relax your curls and make them easier to work with.
Stay away from hair dryers and combs, they're just going to make your frizz worse. Instead, opt for a wide toothed brush (or comb if you absolutely can't stand it) and comb it through with a touch of gel or ordinary conditioner after your shower. Allow it to air dry.
