I have pretty early starts in the mornings and as a result sometimes do not leave myself enough time to have a shower before needing to leave for work, usually as a result of a healthy use of the snooze button.
I have the unfortunate burden of having hair that really doesn't fair too well in the night, making it pretty messy and it is obvious that I have not showered. As a result I get referred to as delightful things such as 'Stinky McGee' or 'Homeless Henry'. This is somewhat undesirable and has forced me to try to conquer the issue of bed hair in the morning. Things I have tried:
- Combing my hair - I look like a little 'Gay Boy' and that's another quote from my work buddies. Plus it doesn't really do anything to the stubborn tufts
- Throwing water on it and drying - As I get lots of tufts sticking up, I do this in an attempt to flatten them all down again. Alas, it doesn't work and makes my hair smell. Nickname: 'Wet Dog Donald'
- Washing the night before - Although it feels soft and fluffy, still sticks up and looks like I've had a raucous night in the bedroom. Nickname: 'Sweaty Lover'
- Hair Gel / Wax - More often than not I end up looking like, and I quote, 'Grease Ball Gavin'.
As I have had little succes and a lot of abuse from my attempts, I hope you fine folks could 'help a brother out'.
Notes: My hair is pretty thick and medium in length - I get it cut quite short when I go to the barbers but still have issues.
Disclaimer: I do not genuinely get abused, it's just more fun this way.
