Never too old for ponytails. I've had a couple of awesome profs with silver ponytails.

I can still pull it off, but it's entering the "questionable" stage. I'd rather kill it before it gets to the "skullet" stage.

EDIT: Well shit, I guess I'll put it to a vote. here's what I look like as of a few nights ago. Cut it or keep it?

Keep it for now, it looks good to me; but if that front section becomes much more of a peninsula, consider a new hairstyle.

You can also use a shampoo meant for eliminating buildup. If you have an itchy scalp and/or get breakouts on your scalp, a shampoo like this might help.

[up][up]Head & Shoulders? Best anti-dandruff shampoo I've ever tried, even the cheap store brand imitations are great.

[up]Keep the ponytail, it suits you sir.

Edit- quick question to the ladies, does anyone know of any good make-up removers that wont leave your skin feeling oily or leave you with panda-eyes in the morning? It's something I still haven't found a good version of over here.

I learned about using cold cream in stage makeup class and it rocks. I use Pond's but Abolene is also good. I get it at Walgreens.

Albolene is usually the go-to for theatre people, but it can leave a kind of greasy slickness. Basic cold cream — like 'cat said — Pond's is good. But I have to admit that I've never found any make-up remover that will completely remove water-proof mascara in one try. There's always enough left to make smudges the next morning.

I've always used Simple facial wipes for make-up removal.

I've always used mineral oil to remove eye makeup, then washed my face with regular soap and water.

I will give Ponds a try, thank you all very much for your. I'm not so keen on facial wipes as someone with sensitive skin though. I was trying to finish off all my freebies I'd get with make-up and the only one that worked on water-proof mascara was a Clinique oil based remover, seems too pricey for such a tiny amount though. And as I have stated before, it's usually the pharmacy sold products that do the best job.

I actually blew a buncha money on sephora makeup remover wipes—so worth it as everyhting comes off in one swipe, and you can reuse the wipes when you wet them with a little water.

I believe in olive oil as conditioner, baby oil as moisurizer, and thick stockings when I'm too lazy to wax.

I found an organic pear glace body butter on the close out rack at the store. Scout likes to lick it off my feet. Weird dog.

Also, I don't know if Big Lots carry the same stuff every where but there are Olay brand makeup removing potions and lots of Dead Sea minerals products at the one by my house these days.

I finally stopped having zit outbreaks when I began using an unholy combination of salt scrub and sugar scrub on my face. Mmmm... so pustule-free... [lol] Need a very good moisturizer with, though... and for that I go with Villainess' whipped shea lotion.

Also, bacne cannot survive bar soap and a shower brush.

@Bur: a good substitute for a shower brush is one of those green-and-yellow dish scrub pads. Just don't use the same one for dishes and you're good. They're cheaper than loofas, work better and last longer. It takes your skin about a week to get used to that much scrubbing (and don't use it on your face), but after that you'll be soft, supple and zit-free.

Lip balm also works to greatly reduce the dryness of fingertips after you've cut your nails too short.

Gentlemen looking for an inexpensive alternative to moustache wax, try Garnier Fructis Style Surf Hair. Seriously! Unlike regular moustache wax, a little goes a long way and you don’t need to heat it before using.
