    Unhappy Headsets and Hair

    Well... this may win the title of the most stupid thread of the year but this is a problem I bet A LOT of gamers have.

    I'm a WoW player and an abusive Teamspeak user and I decided to invest and buy a new Headset (a good one) since my old one used to hurt my ears after like 3 or 4 hours of having my ears "squeezed" with the headphones.

    I decided to get that Logitech G930 Headset cause it looks awesome plus it has those big ear covering that isolate sound and doesn't make pressure directly on ear. (like my old ones did)

    BUT

    Now I have other problem... really stupid one...

    Since the G930 covers and makes pressure around the ear, after 30+min of gaming it flattens my hair above the ears and makes me look/feel stupid! (clown looking funny aswell) XD

    Only taking a shower seems to work on making my hair look natural again ("unflat") and I can't be taking a shower everytime I go to play 30+min.

    Anyone has a solution to avoid this? I really dont believe that everyone that uses this type of headphones uses really short hair... There must be A LOT of players with same problem! :|

    PS: Please don't mock me! XD

    Shave your head.

    Now, headsets and glasses REALLY don't go well together..

    You know I used to solve this by simply using a piece of cloth with enough layers so it evens out the flattening over like half of your head. Then there was no flattening at all. It worked but I must have looked really weird .

    Many just might not see it as much of a problem like you do.
    Do you usually go out after sitting by the computer? Then it's usually a good idea to take a shower anyway, to meet the world - fresh!
    If not, are you just wanting to be pretty in front of yourself? I'm sure you know how good you can look, and don't need to see it every few minutes in a mirror.

    As for your problem, can't you just arrange your hair around it? I mean, lift the beam going above your head so it doesn't rest directly with pressure, and lift your hair away from your ears?

    try taking a comb and wetting it then running it through your hair-

    If you have a hair product in it- doing this will reactivate the bonding in the product


    dont soak your hair just run the comb under the water once or twice to get your hair back to normal

    after this set with a light hairspray shot if you do this.

    Well it was exclusively in raid times 8pm to midnight or so in my home where nobody saw me . But trust me, this goes all the way back to when only Counter-Strike 1.5 existed and in all those years I never found a better way to deal with it. This, while ridiculous, works.

    I have short hair... not "shaved-short"... even being short it has size enough to get/look flat. :P

    I normally just rub it with a bit of water, add some vax, and woah; it looks mint again.

    Why not reverse order and take a shower in the morning instead of at night before gaming? Or even take a shower after gaming and before bed? That is where it seems to be your problem...

    Maybe I am mistaken?

    Doesn't always work out like that. Example:

    The way I style my hair is generally: Water -> Vax -> Let hair dry -> Sleep -> Looks perfect (sort of dirty/messy-ish) in the morning.

    Now, let's say I want to sit down and listen to a bit of music a lovely Saturday morning. After about an hour at the computer, my friend calls and wants me to come over. My hair now looks absolutely fucked, both around my ears and on the top of my head. What do I do? I don't have time to shower, add vax, let it dry and sleep for several hours before going there.

    Headset hair is the worst.

    Also beauty tip for any and everyone... the less you wash your hair the better. Washing it once a day is too excessive and harmful.

    If you have fairly short hair, you can probably get away with once every 2 weeks.

    Slightly damp towel, give your hair a good rub down.

    Don't bother with a headset unless it has noise canceling and possibly outside vibration canceling.

    Unless you have an issue (whether it be personal or medical) with putting stuff in your ears, just get earphones/buds and a desk/portable mic.

    Thing is... My guild starts raiding at 23PM till 03AM... When I finish raiding I MUST go o bed sleep cause I have to wake up at 8AM, and so I'm really tired when I go to sleep at 3AM and don't have patience to take a shower.

    When I wake up in the morning its too freaking cold to take a shower... PLUS... I'm too tired to wake up half an hour earlier cause of the shower...

    PS: Damn... I just realised I'm a complicated guy... (Damn... I behave like a girl!) XD

    WHAT? Wash my head ONCE EVERY TWO WEEKS?!?

    I don't wash it for 48H and it starts looking oily and kinda green! (since I'm blonde)
