So… I'm wondering if clarifying shampoo and crushed up vitamin C tablets would actually make permanent hair dye fade? Is it damaging?
I want to go lighter but don't want to go straight to bleaching.>>103440
Have you tried using a bandana or similar? That's sort of the only thing that comes to mind

I also have a question about lightening. This is my current color. I dyed it very dark brown in June and haven't touched it up since. My natural color is an ash dark blonde. Would bleaching it right now get it to a light blonde in one go? I want an ombre/balayage/whatever where my roots are left alone so it can grow out healthier.

Buy this, it should remove everything
Yeah, I'm not near any major city like that. Shit. So, if I use the color remover like >>103464
mentioned before I go, would that help it come out more evenly?
When I destroyed my hair from bleaching and cutting wasn't an option, I focused on trying to create optimum conditions for it to grow out which worked:
1. If your hair is bad enough for it to be breaking off, it's probably hellfire dry so don't wash it for at a week. It made my hair look way better as it allowed my hair oils to get to the ends of my hair by brushing it from root to end daily. Also in general, don't wash it too much. Cornstarch is your best friend if the roots are too oily.
2. This Moroccan oil double pack was great: https://m.feelunique.com/p/Moroccanoil-Hair-and-Body-Duo-Special-Edition?url=Moroccanoil-Hair-and-Body-Duo-Special-Edition&slang=EN&gclsrc=aw.ds&gclid=CjwKCAiA0uLgBRABEiwAecFnk4eub7QaHgwLu2t72SQIZsZzj_gwhIARNfkmW2OP_xID_aXzXq0QxBoCt3sQAvD_BwE
I've just included the first link I saw but it's cheapest at salon supply stores.
3. Deep treatments improve the look of the hair. L'oreal professionel absolut repair lipidum is a really good product but it is a tad pricey.
3. (a) I saw this hack on YouTube where you put your straightener on low heat, wrap aluminium foil around it and "straighten" your hair with a treatment mask on it and it had a visible effect on my ends especially. (Here's a video: https://youtu.be/TthHf4zIJWU
4. As soon as your hair grows even if that shit is like 0.000000001cm CUT IT OFF otherwise the breakage will continue up the length of the hair.
Sorry I can't really help you with texture, I have the opposite problem(won't lay flat how I want it to, a bit too thick).Perhaps switching away from sulfates and silicone-enhanced conditioners would help. The cones in most conditioners are probably really weighing down your hair. I would recommend nixing that.
BUT one good way to get waves is to braid your hair when it is a little damp(not wet, too damaging). I have also had success with making rag curls and then combing through them, it looks fancier to me. But YMMV.
For the texture, if I were you I would visit a salon or even just a mid range place if youre on a budget.
Personally, I didn't believe the stylist a month ago when she said she could getmy hair to settle down. She did, because that's what pros are paid to do.

Every single damn natural color i've tried isn't as flattering as unnatural colors
I have pale neutral grey ish skin and very very dark brown eyes and havent be able to find a natural looking match since ive ditched unnatural hair colors, my natural ashy black makes me look diseased so do blondes a redhead copper looked the best but but i couldn't make it look natural with my bushy black brows
Ive stopped dying my hair since finishing school to ~blend in~ more since i was probably going to have to look for a job or something but i just feel less-attractive than what i could be and looking at old pictures makes me miss the old look and how good it made me look in general
Saw you on /fa/ anon !
I have dark brown eyes and is greyish pale as well, so blonde made me look dead without make up as well as black.
If you want to have a natural hair colour, I recommend a chocolate brown, it gave life to my face without makeup but it's boring. (Changing back to unnatural for the exact same reasons)
Have you tried lightening your eyebrows a bit? There are lightening kits for facial hair that I use for my eyebrows. Even if you do it too long, as long as you wear makeup you'll be able to make them a colour that works with your hair.

is it possible for someone with super thick straight hair to have hair like this?
even with straightening a blunt cut, i get triangle hair or when i get layers, it gets too voluminous. and no, i'm not getting an undercut.
Even Caesar couldn't pull off the Caesar haircut, or am I thinking of something completely different
Is be very curious to see some reference
Coconut oil on the ends and after washing.
Use a silk cap or silk pillowcase when sleeping, it helps stop breakage and helps your natural oil to moisturise your hair shaft. I guarantee those frizzes will be smoothed down if you use one.
My damaged hair has grown out and improved so much since doing this.

Yes, Olaplex is definitely the business anon (I assume you’re specifically asking about Step 3). For the best results, ignore the 10 minute suggestion on the back and saturate your dirty hair in it before bed. Then wrap it in plastic and a towel, and shampoo it out in the morning. It’s not a protein treatment so leaving on for an extended period isn’t going to cause harm.
Olaplex is what saved me a few years back when my hair was platinum (and for the subsequent following years when my hair was still super damaged and just covered up with brown dye).
This is my hair during both colors, using Olaplex every now and then, and investing in a high quality shampoo. Olaplex isn’t going to save your hair if your using shit shampoo/conditioner regularly btw. >>103526
Protein packs are absolutely NOT a the same. Olaplex helps remind the hair. This is not what protein does. Also, beware of over proteinizing your hair. If you leave it too long and it’s not what your hair needs, the protein will dry out and damage your hair and you’ll get a bunch of breakage. >>103533
First off, throw that head and shoulders into the trash. The amount of silicone in that shampoo is probably adding a crazy amount of weight to your (I’m assuming) fine and straight hair. It’ll be really hard to nicely style your hair until you strip the silicone out of your hair.
If you want something harsh to pull out the black dye in your hair, once a week wash your hair with Dawn dish soap and use a good (i.e. non-silicone) hair mask afterwards. The dawn will probably help strip the build up in your hair at the same time so it’s a win-win.
After you’ve switched to a sulfate free (your dyed hair needs the moisture) shampoo and silicone free conditioner, pick up a medium sized round blow dry brush and learn how to do a proper blow out. As long as the round brush isn’t too small, you should be able to use it on your bangs as well to give them a little shape without making them puffy and round. A little volumizing powder rubbed into your roots will go a LONG way to helping your hair appear more voluminous overall. They can be a little expensive, and there’s a slightly tacky/dry feeling on the scalp, but I find that a results override any temporary discomfort.
Sorry for hair sperging btw. I miss working at a salon lol.

Actually, Jerome Russell does a dupe called JPlex if you're UK. It's decent!
My scalp has been flaky for a long ass time. I do not dye or heat style it. I tried dandruff shampoos which dried my skin out and caused more flakiness. I then thought it was fungal bc I was letting my hair air dry. So, I mixed a little tea tree oil in my shampoo and started to dry the roots with a blow dryer, which I thought worked, but alas, my scalp got flaky again a day or so later. I also use coconut oil once or twice per week to moisturize my hair and scalp.
I'm starting to think it's the minerals and whatever else in the water here. We have hard water in my region and I can feel the flakiness of the mineral deposits on my skin and scalp.
Has anyone dealt with this before? I will be buying a hard water filter for my shower head but that may take a few weeks. Please tell me my diagnosis is correct and it gets better anons! >>103526>>103899
Ty anon(s?) I'm in the USA but am happy to hear there are options!
The crushed vitamin C tablet thing does actually help too, although if you’ve used a box dye from the store you’re still going to have a tough time. The tablet trick works better with stained semi permanents in my experience.>>103894
Definitely stop using the Patene as soon as you’re able. Regardless of your hair type, that stuff is just gonna make your hair heavy and dry feeling from the silicone build up. Do you have a photo of your own hair, or at least someone with similar hair? “Thick” means so many different things to different people it’s hard for me to give you decent advice.
Although I agree with the other anon that replied to you. As some really basic/general advice, Shea Moisture is a pretty decent budget line for thicker hair types.
If you can find it, Giovanni’s 2chic line is another budget friendly option that’s fairly good. I live overseas and found some in a “western hair care” import store. It’s not my first choice, but it’s definitely good enough to tide me over until I can pick up my regular stuff on my next trip home.

Thank you anons!
The shea moisture is available in my local Walmart, Will buy asap, i hate using Pantene kek but I got lazy searching for a shampoo… >>103943
I'll add a picture (my hair is dirty and curled cause i was working out wearing breads). I checked for that 2chic product and it's available in a kinda shifty website for my country so I'll search more, my hair is a total mess and gets split ends all the time,I started using that argain oil from OGX, but doesn't really work..
Also I'm not the one for giving advice but when i get dandruff i use that vinegar with water trick, it works most of the time

Curse you, BTZ, for changing the formula of the Spike It Cement!
And I'm stuck with 3 because I bought 2 to get 1 free online. The last time I bought any was when I stocked up a year ago, so no chance of finding the old formula in a store to exchange.
The new formula dries dry, holds poorly, and doesn't add body.
I hate having to trial and error products, even if a lot of stores allow returns because ultimately it's wasteful.
If you can't be bothered to keep dyeing all the time try l'oreal root coverup spray in any colour except the dark brown or black, because those transfer, the other lighter browns are fine. It lasts a couple of days and covers well.
I'm going through the same thing. The only way to reverse it is by getting a hair transplant like elon musk. You can derma roll and eat flavonoids for prevention. I've also heard people experiencing reversal of grays through intermittent fasting and keto diet.
File: 1546027488201.jpg (67.78 KB, 564x562, Hidden-Undercut-Glory.jpg)
Anybody have any experience with partial/hidden undercuts like in pic related?
I have medium length, curly/wavy hair that is super dense and thick. I love my natural hair texture but it is so thick and heavy that I have to tie it back 99% of the time so I don't overheat. It sucks because I look way cuter with my hair down but it's just so heavy and makes my neck so sweaty that I inevitably always give up and put it in a ponytail.
I feel like getting an undercut like this would help a lot - my hair wouldn't be so thick, heavy, and unmanageable, it'd be so much easier to wash and dry… plus the hairs there have a weird curl pattern and I wouldn't miss them at all if I were to shave them off. But I'm very anxious and not at all adventurous when it comes to doing anything to my hair so I'm hesitant. Any advice? Should I just bite the bullet?

Does anyone know any good shampoos and conditioners that are $15 tops for type 2B/C hair? I've tried Maui Moisture but the coconut oil in the line I got from them broke me out. I'm considering trying the Fruit Fusion line from Shea Moisture. The only thing holding me back is the very mixed reviews.
Ever since the first time I decided to cut my hair short, I've had this ongoing craving to do it again as soon as my hair has grown out. It's a vicious cycle, if you ask me.
The struggle for me is that while I look better with long hair, short hair (anything from a pixie to a buzzcut) is much more practical and comfortable. When I have long hair it's mostly in a ponytail anyway, and it's very fine and thin which means it gets oily and stringy within a day without proper washing.
Right now my hair has grown to just beneath my shoulders, and I'm having those intense shaving urges at least once a week, kek. I feel you, anon.
Fuck, yeah I've wanted to do that sort of thing for years because I think girls with really short or buzzed hair look cool and cute, but I know it would look bad with my features. I also had a pixie once but it just made me look unbalanced, idk. I'm also growing my hair to braid it so I don't look so ethnically ambiguous lol.
What do you think specifically looked bad about super short on you? I don't think a dark buzz or even pixie would be "overpowering."
>>104845>When I have long hair it's mostly in a ponytail anyway, and it's very fine and thin which means it gets oily and stringy within a day without proper washing.
This is exactly the same for me.
The thing with short hair though is that it usually (imo at least) only looks good if you style it properly and you have to get it cut regularly or it gets to this this strange in-between length at which it looks terrible no matter what you do.>>104848
Funny thing: I‘m quite the opposite about the sex signal stuff.
Back when I cut my hair super short I was seeing a guy I was really into and we‘ve had this weird hot and cold relationship going on for a year (never officially dated or had sex, but we always would get super close and emotional and then not talk to each other for weeks). So after a long period of not talking to each other we finally were getting closer again but then when I got my hair cut he totally rejected me. Like, straight up told me he wasn’t attracted to me anymore because of it. Which is another huge reason why I‘m afraid to do it. I‘ll just think I won’t be attractive anymore. (I know I shouldn’t care.)>>104849
I don‘t and didn’t even think it looked genuinely bad. It just didn’t feel… right? Idk.

i made the mistake of getting my haircut a bit shorter than my shoulders and now i have to deal with my hair swooping to the left. it's like a giant cowlick. i don't know how to exactly describe it so it drew a interpretation of it. i'm not even trying to exaggerate it looks super nice on one side, and the other just flips outward. straightening my hair can only do so much too.

Hey anons, so I used to dye my hair black a lot (only the ends though), but recently it started to fade very quickly and I decided to bleach it, which made it orange.
I was going for a lighter brown to match my roots but bleaching dried off the hair, I'm taking care of split ends and all.
Do you guys think it is worth it to try to bleach again and dye or is this orange socially acceptable? I like it but I'm ashamed that the stains make me look like a 10 year old decided to play with bleach.
Use the colour remover kit listed in this thread, do weekly masks of coconut oil + raw egg for 3months minimum and then re dye it or deal with dead hair.
My hair used to look like that when I was 16 so I know how to fix this clusterfuck.
I totally got you. I want to do an undercut and cut it much shorter. I have bleach damage and feel like just cutting it and letting it grow out while investing in one or two human hair wigs.
I think cutting it can be liberating, since it will grow back, after all.

I got split bangs on a whim. I used to have bangs all the way through school but it's been quite a time and I forgot how much trouble they are. It's been a one day and I already regret getting them lol.
Are they too long to be styled like bardot bangs? Should I style them with a hairdryer or an iron flat or some product? As you can see on the pic, they have quite strong growing pattern to the sides. It's hard to get it to stay on my forehead.
Any advice appreciated

Hey anons has anyone with super hyper oily hair noticed that your hair got better with bleaching?
My hair is just plain nasty, naturally so, went alot of times to the dermatologist, used expensive pharmacy shampoos, still have to wash it everyday or its impossible.
I tried not washing it as often to see if my scalp would calm down but still nothing.
I bleached it to a 9 to dye it soft pink and voilá, my hair was shiny, fluffy and i didn't have to wash it nearly as much. I guess since it was short my natural oils fixed the bleach damage very quick.
Now my hair is all natural again and planning on going for a platinum blonde this year.
and I went out and bought the Not Your Mother's naturals shampoo & conditioner. I don't hate it, but I think it dries my hair out. The shampoo and conditioner I was using before (with coconut oil that broke me out) made my hair the softest it's ever been so I'm wondering if my hair is just trying to deal with the change in product?
I have no idea about the bangs, but for the frizz, I know it's kind of a meme at this point but have you considered trying out the curly girl method? You don't have to follow every step to a T, like some people still use sulfates/silicones in their products and are fine. But it's a really good starting point to figure out how to tame hair with any kind of texture (I'm assuming your hair has some kind of curl/wave if it's super frizzy?). There's also a lot of good dirt cheap drugstore products available, at least if you're American. My conditioner is literally 78 cents and it works great, and my hair gel is like $3 for a huge bottle.
I'd definitely recommend not using terrycloth/regular towels to dry your hair, get a microfiber towel or just use an old cotton T shirt, and scrunch your hair to dry instead of rubbing it. One thing that also helped me a lot with my frizz was using a lot of conditioner, like WAY more than you think you'd need. My hair is super dry, though, so YMMV.
Aside from meeting your normal micronutrient needs, supplements won’t make your hair grow faster or any better. Just being healthy is enough.
Kudos for doing the full shave, and enjoy the silky new growth!
yeast is amazing for hair growth. I'm using a mask for scalp, it's a Russian product so there's probably no point in recommending it to you, but really just use any good yeast mask (just google thoroughly if the ingredients are natural, try to find something the most "organic") OR yeast supplements. Girls drink it but honestly it's a pain to make it and the taste is fucking awful, so I'd go for the tablets.
My hair sped up with the growth so much that the hairdresser was so shook she searched for my last visit in her planner, coz she wouldn't believe me so little time had passed since my last visit. I have a lot of sudden baby hairs, too.

lol anon why bully
it's called, idk, maybe Grandma Agafia (yeast mask). Sorry for being a knob if it's like widely avaiable in the US or wherever, I just don't know
I think a month or two of regular usage. I have very long hair already so I didn't notice the faster growth, just realized at the hairdresser's when she told me (and it was 2 months since my last visit). But the growth of baby hair I've realized earlier by myself.
Some tips, I think the instructions say to use it for the full lenght of hair or something, but most girls use it for scalp only. This way it's more efficient. It's not anything special for hair but great for the scalp.
I use it every time I wash my hair (so around every 2-3 days), I damp my hair and scalp, massage the mask in, make a bun and leave it for like 5-10 mins, then just wash my hair like I normally would. So it doesn't require much effort and time which is great for lazy fucks like myself.
Thank you, anon!
btw does anyone have perhaps some tips for dry hair?
My hair is dry and stringy and I've never even dyed my hair nor do I expose myself to the sun.
My diet is sugarfree and I don't eat junk food. Sunflower oil and coconut oil didn't help.

I know it's pretty divisive at this point, but has anyone tried following the Curly Girl Method?
My hair is currently a mix of 2b and 2c. It used to be 3a when I was a kid, before I went through an emo phase in my teens and religiously straightened my hair. Lately I've been trying to take better care of my waves by not using sulfates etc, but I find that my hair is either bone-dry or weighed down and oily. I'm considering switching to co-washing in place of shampoo, specifically the "As I Am Coconut Co-Wash".
If anyone has tried it and has product recs, please let me know!
i’ve followed the CGM for two months now and i really like it. what has helped me is joining a CGM group on facebook. as far as products, i’m a cheap ass so all my faves are USA drugstore stuff.
not your mother’s naturals yellow shampoo, conditioner (mix to make a DIY co-wash), and leave in spray
herbal essences totally twisted mousse
LA looks blue gel
black orchid diffuser
shea moisture manuka honey deep conditioner
i’m 2b/c, low porosity, fine
it’s called curly girl (method) support group international. it’s the one with 109k members.
i haven’t personally used it bc i’m too cheap to buy a real co-wash but the as i am that was mentioned up thread is the most universally loved curly girl product i’ve ever seen.
me!! i may have posted this somewhere else but honestly, go to a doctor. hair loss could be due to anemia, thyroid issues, or some vitamin deficiencies. i'm going through it rn and ended up going to a dermatologist and found out its just genetics (kms). in the meantime, checkout the hair loss subreddit as well- there's one or two posts for females.
secondly, you'll find out that it's much more common than you think! we're in this together!

i know this is similar to a question that an anon asked previously, but i need some advice specifically for eczema and dry climates. i have eczema that i think has spread to my scalp and the fact i live in a very dry and cold environment means that my scalp is super flaky/scabby/itchy and i even have patches of blood in some areas because i've scratched so hard. i'm thinking of making an appointment with a doctor to get some advice, though last time i went they just gave me a prescription serum that didn't really help that much. anyway, i know that it's super gross, but i'm hoping that maybe one of you has had a similar experience and could give me some advice on how to treat it? i'm thinking of maybe switching to a gentler shampoo or something, but i don't know what would be a good brand.
genuinely, thank you so much for responding. have felt so alone and shite over this. i'm sorry to hear you're both going through it, too. hope you're doing ok and wishing you both a happy and hairy 2019.
thanks for the reddit rec, i'll check it out. will try to pluck up the courage to see the doc too. just scared to have my fears confirmed.
I follow an altered version of it. Basically, I'm not no-poo.
But, the last time I got my hair cut at a salon, I went to one that specialized in curly hair and the stylist told me that I should avoid heavy oils, and I have 3b hair. Maybe for type 2 hair try finding something that's less oil-based.
What is your routine like? All these products shouldn't add hydration to your hair, but keep the moisture inside it. I really like the Love Ur Curls leave in conditioner because you're supposed to use it while your hair is soaking wet and it locks in that moisture. They're a Canadian brand (Toronto) and I think only available through their website https://lusbrands.ca/
OGX Quenching + Coconut Curls Shampoo
OGX Damage Remedy + Coconut Miracle Oil Conditioner (dye/soft bleach damage)
LUS All-in-One Curly Leave in Conditioner
DevaCurl Light Defining Gel
I put all this shit in whilst my hair is wet, scrunch out the excess water, wrap it up in a microfiber towel to keep it out of the way while I do my morning routine, then let it down and let it air dry. Hasn't failed me yet.

anon, not to be mean but it's an awkward haircut. Either cut the sides for a "total" pixie or cut the sides a bit while letting the fringe grow out, so you can do a "messy" voluminous short style. Then you could style it just by tousling the hair with product covered fingers.

Unfortunately my hair can't hold a curl to save a life… but perhaps when my hair is a bit longer, I will consider it.>>105657
Oh I know ;_; I think I'll have to live in a hat for a month until it grows out… It never used to look this awkward until my most recent haircut. >>105644
I might get flack for this, but I genuinely liked Emma Watson's hair – sleek, clean. However, I don't think our hair types are similar at all, and my hair at the moment is too short right now.
Something textured and wavy is something I would consider "cool", though I don't think I used the right adjective. Instead, I meant something that is a bit low-maintenance, still looks good and has texture. This is probably contradictory, but that's the gist of it.
late response, but have hope! i'm having some growth back after like a year lol
in the meantime, avoid really tight hairstyles. wishing you the best as well :)
i noticed that most northern europeans have mad fine hair, and if you look around you see lots of celebs with it. emma stone for example.
but you don't really want coarse hair anon, my friend has mediterranean heritage and she's living in a land of frizz-eaze and straighteners 24/7. it's a case of grass is greener.
So damn many really thin strands.
I get best results using organiccare shampoo and conditioner (no parabens, sulfatea, etc etc) and coconut and Argan oils. Pantene makes a dry shampoo that gives a fair bit of body without much weight.

Is heat styling that bad? I have frizzy, mousy hair and I want non-frizzy, nice-looking hair. I used to straighten it, which made it easier to wear down, but it was really flat and I think that might look a little dated now. I stopped a couple years ago because I lost my straightener and have just been wearing it air-dried out of the shower and it ends up looking like google-pic related, or like the Princess Diaries girl before the makeover, but with a Lord Farquad-length bob.
Should I just get a new straightener? Does blow-drying help? I'd just like to look less sloppy.

Anyone have experience with permanent hair straightening/keratin treatments/magic perms etc?
I just can't with my hair anymore, it's so time consuming because it's long, thick and curly. For a week with nice hair, it's a 3 day process with washing, drying(no heat) and styling

I'm not sure if this happens to everyone, but from experience, I get so much shit for having curly hair, and it is a ton of work just for it to not cooperate or be styled as versatile as straight hair. I get pat on the head "Its so poofy!!" like I'm a dog. I get told how dry it is and how I should try some crazy method that worked for their already perfectly straight manageable hair. I get told how I should straighten it more often because the one day I didn't have time and wore it natural, I get shitted on. That it "looks like pubes". I just want straight hair so i can style it in pretty, low maintenance ways and not be ridiculed for something I was born with :( I don't delay my straightening treatments anymore. Once I see my hair growing out, I try to get it managed before its noticable and people start pointing it out. Plus its much easier to comb than if i were to go full natural.

Just a PSA I bought this stuff for like 6 dollars at winners (tj max in america?) and it made my damaged ends feel amazing
I get it done every 6 months. Around 3 months is when my curly hair starts to become noticeable and I have to use a flat iron on the new growth for it to be tangle
Free and blend with the permanent straightened hair. I have not had issues with breakage and it’s one of the healthier permanent methods compared to a relaxer. It also gets much straighter than a relaxer would. It’s still important to keep the hair oiled though because in general curly hair needs it and you have breakage if you don’t keep the hair moisturized. The best thing about it is not having to flat iron it much or blow dry it at all because it stays straight. I just focus on the new growth in between touch ups.
I have curly hair, and I love curly hair. I don't mind the maintenance because I love how it looks at the end.
I don't personally think straight hair is all that versatile since tutorials always use millions of Bobby pins and tons of hairspray, but if you like it, I love it.
This might sound like bad advice, but I'm being completely serious. What worked for me was buying the cheapest no brand shampoo/conditioner from the grocery store(I had given up lol). All that silicone in the products will coat your hair. Avoid heat if you can and air dry with rollers in.
My ends are fried af from bleaching + heat, so I hide it like that. Also a darker hair color really helps hiding damage
Olaplex treatment is as close to a gold standard as we can expect now. Its offered in salons and weaker versions are sold for home use. Protein treatments can also help but worth verifying with a hair stylist since in some cases it makes it worse. Avoid heat damage and overly hot water, look into leave in conditioners with UV protection for the hair (like Its a 10 brand).
If you think shampoo and conditioner might be an issue Indian hair washing herbs (shikakai, reetha, amla) are sold in powdered forms and might be an option to consider since they cleanse and condition without sulfates or silicones.

I always wanted to have hair like pic related but my natural hair is completely straight and very fine (warm dark brown color). Do you guys believe I'll ever be able to achieve this kind of look? Maybe some sort of perm ?
Not to mention the never ending frizz and 99% of the time it’s an uneven mess with both curlier locks and dead straight hairs.
Easier being born with straight hair and just curling it and frizzing it afterwards.
The grass is always greener on the other side I guess! I always wanted big curly red hair, like, even when I was 9 years old.>>107819>>107842

I need help.
I’m really bored with my hair. The thing is, I don’t know what to do with it.
I don’t have super thin and flimsy hair but it’s still kinda thin. I have quite a long face/forehead (or at least on most pictures it usually looks very long), so haircuts with much volume probably would suit me best, I guess? (Pic related is me btw)
I’ve had very short hair once and everyone told me how great it looked but idk I really don’t know how to style short hair and I also love long hair.
But then again I’d like to see what it’s like again. But as I said; don’t know how to style it for the death of me. (Also growing it out is genuine hell.)
On top of all of this, I have a sidecut growing out, which I can hide quite well though.
But anyways… any suggestions? Doesn’t matter which length. I’m open to anything tbh. I just want change.

anon! It'll be fun!
Really annoyed and sad at the state of my hair, it's eating into my existing anxiety/OCD-ish tendencies and knocking my already shit self esteem. My GP sucks ass, please be my internet doctor, lolcow
>started noticing this from 2017 and I'm barely 21 now
>I keep noticing my hair parting in the mirror but ignore it, then check after the following signs crop up and it's fucking BIG
>hair clumps from washing get bigger and bigger until I could root a 1/12 doll with it. Room mates comment on the shedding because it's hard to vacuum off a carpet.
>the hairs that fall out don't have big bulbs at the end, they're tiny (not telogen effluvium?)
>It's plain upsetting when I can compare the end of a hair (years old) to the root (recent growth) and it's so thin it's hard to see.
>My scalp seems more sensitive to pain when I comb and I wince every time I do and feel every hair that comes away -without- pain. Hairline is becoming fucked.
>Had 2 blood tests, hormone and iron levels were normal in both, no idea if it runs in family because lol, no fam
>Come late 2018/2019 and it feels like the amount of fallout is lessening but one new thing is shedding strange 'baby' hairs, really fine ones that are a couple of inches or less. It's like my scalp tried then went 'fuck it'.
I know this is an obnoxious long blogpost but I've got no one to vent to and I've been holding it in for months. Should I look for hair loss treatments, a wig, or ignore this? I heard about Rogaine but it's expensive and only lasts as long as you apply it and I can't afford that.
If you're using oil-based treatments, probably stop using those and find something more watery.
tbh I don't really understand what your question is…
Are your nails brittle or thin too? That could indicate an iron deficiency, you said your levels were normal, but some women lose more iron during their periods. If that’s not the case, you can also try taking biotin supplements and prenatal vitamins. I’d also recommend massaging jojoba, maracuja, or argan oil (research them all to see which would be the best fit for your hair type) to the scalp once a week for a month. Also if you’re using any chemical treatments like dyes or bleach, you should quit until your hair is in healthier state. I went through something similar and lost 1/4 of my hair about 4 months back, and I did a combination of all of this, including adding an iron supplement to my vitamin regimen. Since then, my shedding has been drastically reduced. Your best option is to see a doctor as excessive shedding is an indication of a number of health issues, but I have a shit gp too, so I hope this helps a little. When my hair was at its worst and thinnest, I also happened to be extremely stressed and a little malnourished, so remember that hair loss isn’t a stand-alone problem, it’s more likely a symptom, and you have to treat the root of the issue to see any real fix. Good luck anon!
My nails feel average. I've got multivitamins but they don't cover biotin so I'll try that out although the other month I read (from an NHS study no less) that supplements aren't proven to do much and you also risk taking too much of certain vitamins? Idk. I get nervous during appointments so I don't think I pushed hard enough when I talked about the shedding to that GP, she took a few seconds to look at my scalp just to confirm "yeah" then literally told me "it's a part of aging" (bitch, what, I bet my birthdate is right on your screen).
I guess I'll make another appointment with another doctor. It gave me chills when I was on /r/tressless and a woman was saying how her hair loss was the only symptom of a cancer she had.
Oil doesn't always weigh down hair.
Anon clearly said they have dry, thin hair and asked for treatment recommendations.

Please help me.
I have very dry/scraggly hair. I use a coconut oil shampoo/conditioner and rarely if ever do I straighten it, though I do blow dry 3x a week. It looks so damaged and brittle and feels coarse and thick like horse hair, lol.
I started taking fish oil pills this week. What else could I be doing?
Do not wash your hair 3 times a week, that's insane. You need to wash it once or twice a week and let the natural oils actually reach your hair. To keep greasiness at bay while your hair gets used to this new regime, apply talc.
I would also recommend using actual raw coconut oil to use as a leave in product. Shampoos that claim to have coconut oil in them will do nothing.
File: 1551299004888.jpg (28.1 KB, 400x400, argan oil.jpg)
reminds me of my hair, this helped me a lot. I put it in when my hair is dry after washing.
Some of these things might help?
Check your diet, drink more water than you already do, no sulfate/silicone etc shampoo, use leave in conditioner (saved my dry ass hair) or deep condition, let your hair dry naturally>>109380
Could be issues with your water?
Ok, I will attempt to cut down on washing. Is there anywhere to get talc in stores, or only amazon? >>109381
Thx, will try this!>>109382
Do you have a brand of leave-in you can recommend?
My hair should be fine then. please answer >>109165
if you can.
nta but I'm also considering one and asked around about brazillian blowouts in my area and I've only found one salon that offers it. Is 2 months considered a long time? That's how long they said it'd last.
They also said keratin treatments last slightly longer, about 3 months. How different are the two?

Has anyone used one of these at-home permanently straightening treatments? Keratin hardly lasts and it's a pain to not get your hair wet and Japanese-style costs 250 USD where I live.
The reviews I've seen of this product seem good but the people who reviewed it had frizzy straight hair, not curly.

Just wanted to post a quick update in case anyone else has the hair same issue(s) as me.
I used a hair mask (Herbal Essences bioRenew Moroccan oil) and have also been using two pumps of Argan Oil of Morocco every day. I’ve seen a pretty big difference in my hair already.
Thanks everyone for the pointers!

How bad of an idea is it for me to dye my hair blonde if I have thin, fine hair? I'm scared of damaging it and making it look worse. Obviously I'd go to a real salon.
If you've ever dyed your hair blonde, would you say it was worth it? Do you feel like it made you look better?

I have thin, super fine dark hair and I actually like the effect bleaching had on it. It's much more voluminous and shapable and doesn't get oily as much.
You can photoshop it to see if it suits you.
On another note, I need some type of product to help my waves hold. I'm alcohol and silicone free so it's difficult to find a decent one.
I was blonde as a child and have blue eyes, so going blonde again suited me very well. My hair became more voluminous, straight (my natural hair is 2c-3a) and less oily. But when the roots showed up again, my scalp produced way more oil than before and my cowlicks/curls came back and made styling my hair harder. So it was either having my roots bleached every 4 weeks or looking like crap.
I kept the color for 4 years but the bad male attention (i couldn't go to a club without being hit on 5-10 times, no joke. Also a lot of those dudes were openly gross and creepy) and the upkeep made me go black again. It also ruined my hair completely to the point of having to cut it off entirely. It's been about 3 years and only now i have reached the length i had back then. I obviously don't regret anything, but it's a thing you have to keep in mind. Also olaplex didn't exist back then or it wasn't accessible/nobody knew about it.
Those are alcohols, but not "the" alcohol (ethanol)
They are used to give products a creamy texture. I've never seen a conditioner without it, unless it's liquid.

I've had bangs forever cause i have a similar forehead/bony big nose combo. you can seriously rock it. look at zooey's upglow as soon as she got a restyle, made a huge difference. adds a lot of youth to your face if you pull it off right. if you're worried you can get the clip in/fringe or bangs extensions if you want to dabble before you make the commitment.

Well you posted Lady Gaga and she looked pretty good with bangs so yeah.
That pictures might have convinced me of the opposite, she looks a lot prettier without imo… >>110900
I look nothing like her from the front, so it wouldn't look like that on me.
nta but adding onto this…can I pull off bangs with a long/large nose and
glasses? Is there something important to consider?

My hairdresser always uses only like two strands and that's definitely not enough hair for my bangs. They're always separated and greasy :(

I've been using avocado oil on my hair for a while now and my hair really likes it (probably because I'm going blonde so it's a bit dried out). Are there any other oils I should/can use to keep my hair nourished and as healthy as possible?
I just put it on when my hair is damp, brush it out and then let it air dry
I mean I've seen posts about people having sore scalps when their hair is growing but not to the extent mine has gotten.
I'll look into a dermatologist for sure. there's gotta be something up with my scalp. when I was younger I had natural hair and never experienced soreness.
-change shampoos to reduce flakiness
-wash hair about twice a week, condition lengths and ends
-Use dry shampoo, or my preference of cornflour, within 12 hours after you wash your hair.
-Use leave in conditioner once a week
-avoid any chemicals on your scalp other than shampoo
