    my unique hair style on July 12, 2009 :

    My hair has always been thick since I was a child. Problem back then was that my hair was so thick and without wetting it with water or putting oil after wash, hair would stick up like crazy. Now my hair has thinned a bit by using oils. I was looking around for hair growth oil, but I think it is better not to play around too much with hair because it gets damaged easily that way. Important thing is to keep it clean and healthy.

    what if you are bald like me? haha. then you won’t even worry about the speed at which your hair can grow. I am willing to wait no matter how long it will take to grow hair on top of my head, which I know will not really happen. Yours Mathew Jackson.
