Most men are pretty useless when it comes to grooming products. We'll maybe muss some gel through our hair on special occasions, but that's about it. As it turns out, men's hair products are almost as varied as their female counterparts. This lavishly illustrated infographic will help you to distinguish a clay from a wax and a mousse from a pomades. (Have no fear: it also includes plenty of styling and application tips.)
For the past five years, a woman (read: angel) named Germaine has been cutting my hair. I booked an appointment with her after my former hair stylist moved away, and we talked for a least 30 minutes about how she was going to cut my hair before she picked up a pair of scissors back in 2013.
It was great. She was great. And every subsequent time I went to see her, she would confirm I wanted the same thing and then go to town, always giving me the perfect haircut. Now Germaine is having a baby.
If your home has ever been hit by a nit infestation, you know how difficult it can be to get rid of the little blighters. No matter how thoroughly you treat and comb your kids' hair, the cycle of eradication and rediscovery never seems to end. Fortunately, it's not difficult to banish them for good by following a strict procedure. We asked Aussie head lice expert, Nadine Ismiel-Nash, to share her tips.
I've always hated haircuts. In high school and university, when I was going for "a look", my hair was the easiest part of the look to get right, and the hardest to hide when it looked wrong.

Even now that I'm a dried-up old husk of a dad, with brittle grey hair, I'm fretful under the touch of a new barber.
Losing your hair must really suck. I often spot baldies staring sadly at me as I run my fingers through my thick mane of lustrous curls. It's a majestic sight, so who can blame them? Fortunately, it's possible to combat hair loss via a range of natural hacks and treatments. This infographic explains seven common causes of baldness and how to fix them.
It had been a particularly stressful week when, scissors in one hand and 10cm of hair in another, I decided to cut. A few snips later, I felt triumphant. Sure, a week from then I paid an expert to fix it. But in that moment, I felt like a weight had been lifted, and that felt good, even if it was just a few grams.
Dear Lovehacker, I have been dating my boyfriend for over a year and things have gotten serious to the point where we discuss marriage. I love him and think we would make great partners in life. He is caring, patient, smart and enjoys the same dorky things I do. But there is one attribute that I am struggling with. I have slowly learned that he has a fetish for very long hair.
