How did I guess Vermette would be part of this thread? He does have the nice hair. And he really, really likes to do tv interviews, probably so he can show it off.

I think you'll always look crappy in the in between stages. Until you get to a certain length, it will look bad no matter what you do with it. Hats are definitely your friend.

Haha this thread is classic... a kid coming on here asking "how to grow some sick flow." Jeez louise!

I had my hair pretty long about a year ago, enough for some flow. It was just a pain in the ass keeping slicked back without wearing a hat, so I guess it was in one of those between stages. I also used to wash my hair every day so it would get really stringy/frizzy. Now I wash it every other day and condition every day, but I'm thinking about cutting down more. I just don't really like having greasy hair.. it's kind of gross actually..

Yup that includes trims. From what I hear, trimming it regularly will actually help the hair grow faster. Something to do with split ends and whatnot. Never really worried about it. I don't think my hair looks six years long. It reaches down to just below the middle of my back.

I should do the math to see how much money I've saved on haircuts. Then cross reference that with the money I've likely spent on conditioner and extra shampoo usage to see if I came out on top.

For some people, like me, flow doesn't work out, no matter what you do.

It might not be for you.

Resist the urge to shear it all off during the awkward in-between phase, which will vary in duration from person to person.

I go from buzz cut (Number 1 shear) to long every couple years, and I almost have to grow it longer than I want before I get it trimmed to the way I like it.

I think the key is to grow it long it enough for your hair type that it no longer requires product.

I use a good deal of waxes or putty on my hair during the in-between phase, but I have to wash it out before a game or it irritates my eyes when it pours down with the sweat. Yes, I shower before AND after games for this reason when using hair product.

The title was a joke, relax

Just trying to have some fun here. My buddy suggested I grow my hair out, so I thought I'd give it a shot.

As a girl who had rocked short hair for years before growing it out - just make sure you take care of it. Wash it regularly, comb it after each wash so it won't get flat and tangled. Don't be afraid to use a hairdryer either - that will help with the flat, frizzy look you get in that wierd halfway stage where it's about chin length.

How long do you want it? When I was growing mine I used hairpins and big headbands to keep it at bay, but that might not be an option for you

Baseball and football seem to be favoring the dread locks, how much longer til hockey hair turns into dread locks? A lot of estrogen in this thread by the way.

There's not a lot of black guys playing hockey with long hair though. Laraque and Carson rocked the dreads.

you have to go through some rough patches, but stick with it and you'll have some sick flow.

I went for it once, but it never quite looked like Tang's, no matter what I did. I realized I am too friggin ugly, so went back to good ol' "comb with a towel" haircut.

Some folks have softer/harder and/or natural curl. You need to have the proper kind of hair to pull a Letang mullet.

you have to start with the wings, this means having the curling locks coming out from your hat. have a shower then put your hat on with wet hair, pull the hair straight out. it takes a good couple months but once the wings get to a length that they just arent working anymore. take off your hat and BOOM hockey flow, just like that. leave in conditioner will make it smooth for the ladies hands and the goals and apples come with the flow. you will find your stride longer and more powerful, your passes tape to tape and your entire game will change. you tell all your buds its frmo exercise and training but its not, its all flow.
