In other news... The last time I cut my hair was in May of 1995. At the time, it was mostly brown, and there was a lot more of it. Once it had grown out a bit, it was nearly maintenance free: wash it, comb it, tie it back, forget it. Since my hair seems to have a natural length between 12 and 15 inches, it was both the easiest to care for, and the neatest, hair style I had ever had.
Fifteen years later, my hair has gone through gray to dead white, my hairline has retreated to the top of my skull (and is generally thinner everywhere), and the natural length of what new growth there is, is more like six inches. I find that I am sliding back into being perennially unkempt (even by my significantly lax standards).
I wonder if it is time for a change. The only personally viable option is some variation on a buzz cut/ shave, which would then be maintained in my typically haphazard fashion.
