My Hairstory

Spring 2010

I started growing out my hair in the Fall 0f 2009 mainly for the sake of curiosity.  I had never grown out my hair before and very quickly discovered that I really had no idea how to treat, style, or condition it.  I hit the net and found a lot of great websites with a ton of information.  Now it’s been two years and I thought it would be nice to create a male centered space to discuss all things hair.  Since the beginning of MANE MAN, the site had grown to include information on hair, personal grooming, style, lifestyle and everything in between.  I hope I can pass on some of the things that I’ve learned and share some of my experiences with you.

  1. OMGosh … can I tell you that I didn’t even realize you and Jor-el are one and the same?!?! That being said … you know want to know about the name. Are you a Superman fan or were your parents and Jor-el is your God-given name:)?

    1. Hahaha YES. I’m always impressed when someone picks up on it. It was always my go to fact in those “getting to know you” games. It is my given name and my father is a huge Superman fan! Apparently, my mother is also a very understanding woman lol.

    1. I had no idea! Sadly as far as I get is being a big fan of the movies. I like Superman novelty stuff too but by no means am I an expert lol

      1. Awwwww, bummer! LOL!! And here I was going to ask you what you knew about all of the “Ls” in Superman … Jor-El, Kal-El, Lana Lang, Lois Lane, Lex Luthor, Lionel Luthor, Linda Lee, Lori Lamaris … LOL! I like Supes, but I’m a Batman girl through and through. That’s my boy;)! Oh well, thought I might be able to add you to my crew of comic comrades … but alas, it was not meant to be. BUT … we still have the curl connection;)!!

  2. I am so excited to have found your website! I have two amazing little men that have awesome hair. My youngest (age 7) has locs that I do myself and my oldest (8.5) is just now starting to grow his hair out. He wants to see what his natural curl pattern is with it long and, also, just see what the texture is like with it long. Its more work for us both but I think having a good natural hair education is essential even for boys! Thanks for doing your part to educate the next generation of boys (and girls too!)

    1. Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment. I appreciate it. Please forward the blog on to any curly haired guys you know. We got some exciting stuff coming up soon!

    1. Hi Van, I’m glad you found me then! Please let me know if you have any questions and I’ll do my best to answer them.

  3. your fro is gorgeous honey! I will be checking into your blog more frequently because i have a little one-year-old whose hair i want to grow for as long as i can. I plan on putting him into single strand twists or plaits once his hair starts growing. But i gotta say i love your hair and i really wanna know what your length goals are, if you have any?

  4. In my family men usually started to lose hair after 25. I was thinking how to prevent this. Did not want any lifetime drugs, so I’ve started to use a dietary supplement called Hair Gain Formula by Military Grade. It provides the necessary nutritional support for hair and enhances growth. Moreover, this product is the only nutraceutical which possesses prostaglandin D2 blocking properties. Now I am 29 and I have still all my hair in place. Hope this lasts long enough.

  5. Really love your hair. I’ve thought of growing something like yours but the fact that I’m a lazy guy and I know how difficult to style and condition it 😀
