Hey I've been growning my hair for the last few years and its now at around collar length. (If it get any longer I'll be suspended and withdrawn from my exams by the school! but more on that another day!)

Just curious as to whether its possible to outgrow my crown or something along those lines ... it's just rather annoying.

I'm not sure what you mean by "outgrow my crown"-- I assume you mean "top of my head" by "crown," but I am confused otherwise. Do you mean that the hair growing from your crown is shorter than the rest of your hair? If so, this would probably because, if you had a traditional "short back and sides" cut, or even moreso, a closely cropped cut, before you started growing, it will take longer for the hair on the top of your head to reach your shoulders than the hair near your neck. The only way to fix this is to keep trimming and growing until it's all the same length.

That sucks about your school's policy on hair, and I hope you have luck protesting against them, if that's what you intend to do.

No, I'm sorry I was very vauge. By 'crown' i mean the point on your head where (in men) you're hair all seems to circle around. It's like the center of you hair. Some people have 'double crowns' etc.

I'm pretty sure this is the proper term for what I'm describing - it's what I've always called it lol.

And as for the school protest . . well as most people who live in teh south east of england will known long hair is generally socially unacceptable by both adult and student and is often the source of much bullying etc.

Last time we tried to make a petetion one of our 'recruits' who was trying to get signatures got his petition torn up and then got beat up.

So is what you're asking, is it possible to get rid of that little spinny part your hair circles around when it grows?

I think, honestly, that it partially depends on your haircut and training your hair follicles to grow in a certain direction, but if you've got short hair now, I think that's something you may just have to live with. I'd ask your hairdresser/barber for suggestions, if you want to!

[BTW, I like your nickname! [Big Grin] ]

It really is a matter of how you style your hair. Some cuts make it easier to do than others, but if you style your hair, especially when it's wet, so that your crown (if that is what it is called) is covered, then it should fix the problem. Now that my hair is short, I have to do a little bit of messing around with it so I don't look like I have a bald spot on the back of my head. :p If you're still having problems, I'd ask the person who cuts your hair to help you out, either by showing you how to do it, or by giving you a haircut that makes it easier for you.

I used to develop a quite unappealing tuft at my crown, a patch of hair which was utterly uncontrollable. The only thing which managed to knock it down was when I grew my hair longer, and the sheer weight of the hair took it down. I don't know if it's helpful, but perhaps an alteration of the amount of hair might cause a change. If longer hair doesn't help, try shorter. I prefer mine longer, but to each his own.

"And you're really asking me if I prefer injury to embarrassment? That's not even a choice. I don't know anybody who's literally died of embarrassment."

People are annoying sometimes.
