I also have long hair and have spent many a day on boats. Not necessarily sail boats but i feel your pain. I am notorious for tying my hair up as tight as possible so that it is highly unlikely to come undone. And then once or twice a day i take it down, brush it out, and put it right back up. You'll be absolutely disgusted with yourself at first. But its better then going crewcut. Done that too. Then just wash it when you can...

Plus, on more extended cruising, there's the disadvantage of requiring frequent cuts. I'm considering growing out my less-than shoulder length hair so I can keep it out of my face & not need to get it cut so often.

Interesting thought, though on balance I think really short is easier than really long, (it may, however, be less fun). When we left our wonderful stylist taught me to cut Dan's hair, and him to cut mine - one solution to your 'frequent cuts' dilemma.

Still not sure now. Too short and my fine hair looks awful if not clean. Too long and a pain to wash. Thinking just long enough to tie up and if in doubt wear a nice tight fitting hat.

what ABOUT lon ghair, anyway--is fine and dandy to keep it--isnt a rule to have to cut hair if ye has a boat--LOL..... tooo much peer pressure makes folks bland and uninteresting......long hair is not difficult to wash--i use sea water and rinse in sea water and let it dry a minuet then rinse with a cup or 2 of fresh water and dry a lil then add some leave in conditioner--- what is so difficult about that??? tie it up whenye feel it is in yer way--is all common sense.
