: Hey man! I've been growing for about 2 years and started almost the same age as you. I was also living at home and got a lot of push back from my family. Just stick it out and it will get better. Once I could tie all of it back things started to die down and eventually people let it go and some actually started to say it looked good. My mom hated my hair, but now she loves it.
I've found alot of it comes down to age. When I was younger i got lots of complaints about the hair. But once I reached the age of 45 it all stopped. After i reached the age of 45 all the complaints stopped. For family I was that eccentric uncle who had long hair For cmployers and friends I was that eccentric with long hair. The bottom line is people love to dump on those who are younger.
I'm now 64 years old and have now experienced two decades of complaint free long hair farming. So for me, at the age of 64, I love having long hair that is all grey now. Eccentricity is great.
