Many of you have no clue who this fella is…
No guesses?? C’mon, seriously? It’s me!
Yes, that’s Dad or Alive, hiding under a rug of healthy, protein-fortified wavy movie-star quality follicles. But that was like, thirty years ago. Back then, I could wake up, take five to eight seconds to throw a comb or brush through it and come out looking like The Donald. These days? My wig takes a beating.
Now my routine takes a little longer. First, I need to inspect my hair every morning in the mirror for five to eight MINUTES, pulling a seek-n-destroy mission on any new gray hairs, which seem to be growing in abundance since my third kid came along. Then I need to zero in on any thinning that may have occurred overnight, even if it requires me to use the magnifying glass app on my phone to analyze my pillowcase.
Once I’ve eliminated those two threats, I head for the shower and let Dove Men+Care and The Good Hair Guide do the rest.
With a handful of different shampoo options, I choose the one that best fits the day. Maybe I’ve got vomit in my cowlick… so I’ll head for the Oily solution. Otherwise, I’ve got a choice of Thickening, Anti-Dandruff, Fresh & Clean, Aqua Impact or Sensitive Scalp.
Too bad they don’t have a formula for the fragile emotions of a full-time stay-at-home dad.
EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the most nude I’ve been in any of my 200+ blog posts. Enjoy that. Also, this hairy post is sponsored and done in conjunction with Life of Dad, LLC for the #GoodHairGuide campaign.
Every time I hear the word “cowlick” I think of this cartoon: http://www.theorange.co/blog/hair-cowlicks-finally-explained
I’ve given up on the hunt for grey hairs. They’re here and they’re staying.
Can we make sure you don’t get more nude in future blog posts?
Just be thankful that you still have some. I wish I had Dove Men + Care when I was saturating my hair with hair gel in the 90s. I wonder what would have happened if I avoided that.
Never thought I’d say Adrian Kulp, Hair Model. But there you have it. May your follicles bask in the Dove Men+Care clean.
3rd grade Adrian is dashing and the comb-over is rad.
