And A More Realistic Solution to Your Awkward Stage Hair

“How do you make your hair grow faster?”

Paired with different variations of “how do I get through the awkward stage,” these are the most common questions we get by far.

It’s understandable. The awkward stage is a pain.

It’s the biggest reason there are relatively few men with long hair. The awkward stage weeds out the experimental and noncommittal members.

Compare it to business, physical fitness, long-term travel, and frankly anything in life that’s worth a damn. Nothing worthwhile comes easy, or fast. If you could grow long hair overnight, every guy would do it, even if just for the weekend.

But you can’t. There’s no such thing as a longhair weekend warrior—although quite a few guys had their night of glory this past Halloween.

The hard truth is: there is only so much you can do to make your hair grow faster.

Overall good health, avoiding damage, and taking in the right nutrients can help, the details of which you can read in Quick Tips. Beyond that, it’s up to genetics. Patience and commitment are the name of the game…the long game.

Once you accept that fact, there’s a certain sense of pride that comes with it. As men in the awkward stage, we must embrace the struggle. Instead of being concerned with just getting through it, we should wear it proudly. Like a poor-looking badge of courage, ragged in appearance yet standing tall.

This cold realization begs the next question: ok, if you can’t make your hair grow faster, what can you do to mitigate the awkward stage? Well….

  • What if you had a consistent reminder of what you’re after?
  • What if you had a little firepower to make it through the awkward stage, while making a statement to the naysayers?
  • What if you could place something on your skull that would let everyone know, “I’m not cutting this head of lettuce until it blooms into its righteous glory.”
  • What if, instead of people asking you, “when are you going to cut your hair,” they asked, “what is that…tied up scissors? What does that mean?”

Well….there’s no more “what ifs.” We are stoked up to offer you a more concrete, practical solution to your situation.

    1. Yo Aaron! Man thanks for the comment. The reason we’re not shipping overseas just yet it’s hard to accurately determine the shipping costs, and it adds another level of complexity. But we need to get these lids on your locks. Tell you what though, email us with your address greathair [at] and we’ll see what the shipping cost would be and try to work it out for you. Thanks for reading and repping it hombre!
