I"ve got long straight asian hair. I"ve had long hair since I was a kid. I had been washing it daily with shampoo all of my life up until the last few months where I'll only shampoo once or twice a week at most. I'll just do what Jarek does and scrub it in the shower but without chemicals. When I was washing daily with shampoo, it'd get pretty greasy the next day thus requiring shampooing daily. But now I can go 3-4 days before I feel the need to shampoo. I shower after hockey and make sure to give a good rinse to get the sweat out. Showering daily keeps the stink out. It doesn't smell all perfumy, but it doesn't stink.
The one thing that does annoy me is when my hair gets caught under my bag strap when carrying the gear. I hate that.
Sick hair that was invented by hockey players...dont listen to and lacrosse players, they will try and tell you they invented it but they're just posers....Your flow has to be the perfect length...not to short not to long...you will know when it is perfect because you will play the best games of your life...take note of the perfect length so you cut it back to the perfect length when it gets too long...When it is too long that is considered an OVER-flow....side effects of an OVER-flow are; ankles bending more than usual, flopping passes, getting burned(applies to defensmen AND fowards), and the worst side effect that can kill a team is being a MAJOR sieve (goalies only)
