Life is a series of choices. Every step is a choice, an option, a decision. We try our best to make these choices based on what we know. What we pick may not be based on what is right and what is wrong, but what we believe in our minds and hearts. Whatever we do decide, we have to compromise. It is always one or the other.

Why I Prefer A Shaved Head

Shaved HeadThe place where I work has a formal dress code. Being one of the few Kuwaitis, and also because of the nature of the place, I prefer to dress in a dishdasha with a ghutra and agal. Because of the gahfiya under the ghutra, the hair has usually been pressed for long hours, so it tends to get pretty messed up (either that or it becomes super slick and you know what that looks like don’t you?)

Anyway, I shaved my head the other day and boy does it feel good. I’m a big fan of shaving and have been doing it for a while. I sometimes grow it, but I prefer a shaved head. Even showering is easier :p Never the less, the benefits of a shaved head are far greater than having a non shaved head.

Thanks to Shale for providing 4 – 15.

  1. Use less shampoo while taking a shower.
  2. No need to Comb.
  3. Can easily take of head gear without worrying about a messed up hairdo.
  4. No head lice.
  5. No dandruff.
  6. Save a bucket of money on wax. Also, since you live in a hot country, you do not have to worry about your wax melting and your spiky, messy hairstyle falling down.
  7. If you lose weight, people will think you have aids.
  8. You are more like an egg, and people will want you to tap your head with a spoon.
  9. You do not need to wear a hat to the swimming pool.
  10. When you go to prison, you will not feel humiliated by the shaving bit.
  11. If you wear tight black t-shirts, people will think you are gay.
  12. If you get a black eye, people will think you started the fight, because you are a skinhead.
  13. My Mother will look at your head in disappointment, like she looks at my younger brother’s shaved head.
  14. You are more streamlined when you go swimming.
  15. You can tell people you have undergone chemo and ask them if they think your eyebrow wigs look real.

What other benefits would you attribute to a shaved head?

  10. Q8cuteberry |

    Ohhhh Na3eeman ;) I like shaved-head guys, looking all dangerous & like ex-convicts *giggles*

    A girl gotta love bad guys :P

  11. Shoush |

    Am imagining that it feels amazing having the wind blow on ur scalp. Very refreshing i bet.

  12. N. |

    cixousianpanic,

    Marzouq,

    princess,

    eshda3wa,

    Nomad,

    Q8Cuteberry,
    7ayalah men yana ;p Allah yen3am fe 7alech. Yeah, the non-shaved face also adds to that x-convict look. ;p

    Shoush,
    It does! Especially if its a cool breeze, not something hot and humid! :D

  13. 3baid |

    It’s just more convenient :)

  14. Sarah |

    who is the hot guy on the pic?!?

  15. Angelo |

    “If you lose weight, people will think you have aids.”

    I can see this one as an advantage because you will gain sympathy from other people.

    Well, I’m kinda proud of my hair (e7em e7em) but a shaved head can represent athleticism and masculinity; hence, that you used swimming many times in your list. Good for youyou should be bold and proud :D

  16. Fayoora |

    I totally agree with eshda3wa!

  17. EniGma |

    i wish i had a shaved head just so i can get a REAL head massage

  18. N. |

    3baid,
    It sure is! :)

    Sarah,
    I haven’t the slightest idea!

    Angelo,
    lol, yeah there’s something about a shaved head that just feels so right!

    Fayoora,
    :D

    EniGma,
    lol! ;/ Shave your head then :p

    “You can tell people you have undergone chemo and ask them if they think your eyebrow wigs look real.”

    looool

    i have always wondered how having a shaved head feels like..
    my bro says you feel really light.. whatever that means..

  20. N. |

    Peony,
    Your hair weights quite a bit, imagine you’re carrying less weight on your head, it would feel lighter! ^_^

  21. Very.Q8ya |

    PLZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ PPL LEARN FROM N.!!!!

    GAR3A FOR LIFE ;DDDDDDDDDDDDD

  22. N. |

    Very.Q8ya,
    Thank you ;P

  23. This Lady |

    Oh i have one! if ur going bald, ppl wont notice!

    shrayyiiiiiiik?

  24. N. |

    This Lady,
    lol, good one! True

  25. manutdfanatic |

    None of those reasons up there are convincing enough. Long live hair.

  26. N. |

    I hope you’re talking about Long hair women, cause it wouldn’t be pretty if a woman shaved her head.. :/

  27. manutdfanatic |

    I don’t think it’s pretty when a man does so either.

  28. N. |

    That’s too bad, I love shaving my head. Currently I’m growing it though. I love women with long hair though.

  29. manutdfanatic |

    Don’t most men? It’s high we raised our level of expectations too.

  30. manutdfanatic |

    *time

  31. N. |

    I think most men do, however there are a few women who look hotter in short hair. I didn’t understand the next part of your comment.

  32. N. |

    What do you mean by time to raise level of expectations?

  33. manutdfanatic |

    I was correcting my typing error from the first comment.

  34. manutdfanatic |

    Referring to women in general.

  35. N. |

    So you want women to raise their expectations of men, by being picky about men’s hair?

  36. manutdfanatic |

    Yup. Partly.

  37. N. |

    Oh, aren’t they? I’m sure there are some women who are *cough* prefer longer hair on men, I think they like to grab it.

  38. manutdfanatic |

    They don’t sail on my boat.

  39. N. |

    Short haired guys?

  40. manutdfanatic |

    Varies from guy to guy. In a nutshell; guys with shoulder-length hair make me want to puke.

  41. N. |

    Wow, that bad? Doesn’t very long hair look gay though?

  42. manutdfanatic |

    Huh? I thought I just said I DON’T like long hair on guys! :S

  43. manutdfanatic |

    A normal decent haircut would do. No long hair, no bald heads. Please.

  44. N. |

    oh. shoulder length hair. I read that wrong. :/ My bad. Yes, so what’s ideal do you think?

  45. N. |

    Oh lol, that sounds reasonable. Decent is always good. ;p

  46. manutdfanatic |

    Yep. Baldie.

  47. N. |

    Now I’m baldie? Twit.

  48. manutdfanatic |

    Twit? I always liked that word. Thank you, baldie.

  49. N. |

    Your welcome. Twit. :*

  50. manutdfanatic |

    Your? Hahah. Baldie. I’m beginning to wonder how you got those poor women to agree to live with you.

  51. N. |

    Its late. You’re. You think they’d love me for my unique spelling techniques? No.

  52. manutdfanatic |

    Aha. So what do they love you for anyway?

  53. N. |

    They love me for my 4-year-old baldness, and of course. My sexism. They think it is sexy. And, I am a very fair person.

  54. manutdfanatic |

    They think your sexism is sexy? What kind of women have you got locked up in there, you mad bald thing? Fair? That still doesn’t make me accept your old offer.

  55. N. |

    Yeah, they do. It may seem strange but they love it. It does something to them. Yes, I am fair of course, playful, cheerful, enjoyable, entertaining, not to mention my 4 year old tendencies. Oh, and I do have a kickass unique way of writing and spelling things. ;)

  56. manutdfanatic |

    “playful, cheerful, enjoyable, entertaining”

    Where can I purchase this toy? Toys ‘R’ Us good enough?

  57. N. |

    Nope, you won’t find that at Toys ‘R’ Us, only here. Right here. How about it?

  58. manutdfanatic |

    Nah. Not interested anymore. I was thinking of decorating that shelf in my bathroom with it.

  59. N. |

    Oh, I really would NOT recommend that.

  60. manutdfanatic |

    Why? I assure you; my bathroom’s quite spacious; oh, and airy and sweet-smelling too. And you get to look out the window at rows and rows of flowers below.

  61. N. |

    Hmm, that’s a very tempting offer.

  62. manutdfanatic |

    I know. I’ve always been quite the temptress.

  63. N. |

    Indeed you are. There was a legend once, about a temptress, I don’t remember the legend, but she lived miserably.

  64. manutdfanatic |

    “La Belle Dame Sans Merci”? Oh there’s another one; I forget the name. The one where she’s really beautiful and she’s a prisoner in some castle….

  65. manutdfanatic |

    Boo-hoo. I don’t want a miserable life. But I’m not too keen to change my temptress “qualities” either. Real dilemma. Advice please.

  66. N. |

    I had a feeling you’d figure it out! Don’t tell me you mean Rapunzel? Or whatever her name was.

  67. N. |

    Hmm, well pick wisely. Also, be constant, that’s the advice I can give you for now ;P

  68. manutdfanatic |

    Not Rapunzel.

  69. N. |

    I might remember vaguely but that’s all that comes to mind at the moment.

  70. suspic |

    I shaved my head twice by mistake, growing it back’s a bitch.

    My family kept calling me Ekkosan. =(

  71. N. |

    How do you shave your head by mistake? and what’s Ekkosan? lol!

  72. suspic |

    I was a kid, a naive chap, and told the barber to make it seem like a gar3a but have the githla a bit longer so I’d mess it up, the bastard shaved my whole head 3al 9ifir and kept a long githla. I looked like an emo lesbian. I was a child, I didn’t know what to do but watch in fear how I got scarred for life.. =(

    And Ekkosan is an old cartoon with this bald Japanese kid who had a HUGE 9ma5.

  73. manutdfanatic |

    Hahahaah! Poor Suspic!

  74. N. |

    Suspic,
    LOL! Thats pretty bad. I don’t think I’ve heard of ekkosan before, I might have but I barely remember.

  75. Elaine |

    If I am a man I think I will shave my head too after reading this post…No need to comb my hair everyday :)

  76. Nasser |

    Elaine,
    lol, yeah. It is a great feeling! Summer is coming up, and I’m thinking about it again.

  77. komodo dragon |

    im sure shaved heads are much better to deal with, but only certain guys can pull it off, oftentimes hair is an essential part of the look

  78. Nasser |

    Komodo dragon,
    True, some guys are not suited for it.

  79. manutdfanatic |

    I landed up here….again. I couldn’t help but notice your summer plan…

    NO. That’s a final word.

  80. Nasser |

    manutdfanatic,
    Summer is here and I haven’t shaved yet, so I might not do it. Maybe next year =p

  81. manutdfanatic |

    Never.

  82. Prince of heartzZ |

    Wats up, amigos? You r missing some vital components..bald head is good for memory as it increases blood flow but when look matters and wanna look charming, go for long hair and ofcourse bald head wont give a professional look. Comments plz.
