I've been trying to style my hair into big loose curls with foam rollers (because I don't wanna use heat on my hair) but they're such a pain in the ass to sleep with, I always end up removing them during the night. Has anyone had success with foam rollers?

Does anyone know an affordable dupe for Olaplex? I bleached all the black dye out of my (natural dishwater blonde) hair and I'm now growing it out in my natural color and the ends are frieddddddddd. Coconut oil weekly helps but after my next trim I want something better to help with my puffy split ends!

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.

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.

I bleached my hair and a couple months later started having insane breakage. Now I’ve just got all these short frizzy hairs at the top of my head. I’m so depressed about it. If I could pull off a pixie cut I would start from fresh but I can’t.

Any tips for growing out damaged hair? Right now I’m sticking to 1 trim a month. Cut everything to my shoulders.

I've had bad breakage for a while now, even though I stopped bleaching and colouring my hair to try to prevent it. I don't have tips for growing it out (except wait? lol). But my hairdresser taught me a trick for the short frizzies. Spray a teasing comb with hairspray and lightly brush your roots down. Also, try not to wear hats if you can avoid it, especially wooly ones, because that will create static and make the hairs stand up.

No. 103514

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.

Farmers I need a lot of help with my hair. I’m so lost with what to do with it and it’s so ugly and unflattering. Any help is greatly appreciated.

It’s all one layer now essentially and I know I need some sort of cut to make it look decent instead of flat and limp. Any cut suggestions? I kind of want to grow it out but I’m not sure what long style to have since I feel like it always makes my hair limp.

It’s a few inches below my shoulders and a mix of black and brown. I meant to dye it a dark brown but it ended up black ugh. I’m trying to wash out the black with a head and shoulders shampoo I use everyday. I also condition every day (mostly the mid park and the ends).

I have eye length straight bangs and they are just so lifeless! I have super straight hair so they just kind of hang there. I need bangs though because I have an 8 head sadly. Is there any way to style them and give them some volume without calling too much attention to my big nose?

Last question , anyone else have flat, limp, super straight hair styling tips? I’ve noticed it looks nice wavy but I have 0 idea how to wave. I’ve tried to use a straightener to make waves but they look super crimped, and have never managed to use a curler. Should I just try harder to learn one of these hair stylers or is there an easy waver?

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

I'd also recommend the generic advice of doing protein treatments and avoiding shampoos/conditioners with sulfates. Regular masks are designed to add in moisture, but super damaged hair from bleach is porous and needs structure. Don't do the protein on your non damaged hair though, it'll make your healthy hair dependent on the treatments. I gave up and dyed my hair as closely to my natural color as I could and just had to deal with nasty feeling hair for a long time. It's been about a year and a half and my hair is finally looking good.

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.

Unless you've got a particularly striking face, I wouldn't go for the full structured Caesar cut, but maybe a softened more feminine version of it. Get it textured on top and have the fringe thinned a bit so if you get sick of it, you can sweep it to the side more easily.

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.

Any anons dealing with thinning hair? My hair has a little texture and is curly so I have some illusion of volume but my crown/part is getting kinda sparse.

I bet there are "mature-hair" tutorials that are aimed at older people that focus on thinning hair that you could cherry-pick for yourself, since it's a big problem with getting older. Generally, I hear that darker roots makes hair look thicker close to the scalp. Also, have you tried changing the way you part your hair? A deep side-part would put more volume on top of your hair, or if you're already doing that, change the part to the other side. Probably want to see a specialist eventually though.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I have about the same curl type and I really like the Not Your Mother's Naturals line. I use the one with the pink and yellow bottle but I think they're all basically the same. Plus there's usually a BOGO 50% off coupon at Ulta/Walgreens etc. so you can get the shampoo and conditioner set for only $12 or so!

Every now and then I get this intense urge to shave all of my hair off.
It sucks, because I know I‘d look extremely ugly and growing it out is a huge pain in the ass. But I feel like I want to make this experience at least once in a lifetime.
I got a pixie cut once but regretted it so much that I immediately grew it out again and didn’t get my hair cut after this for years. Even though many people told me it looked so good on me, I didn’t feel comfortable at all.

But anyways… I just want to do it so badly. Closest to it was me giving mysef a sidecut the other night and it felt amazing. But I only like it because I can hide it fairly easily. But man, the thought of shaving it all off…
Does anyone else have this?

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.

I love short hair too, mostly long bobs, but I’ve had to admit to myself that my hair type isn’t suited for anything shorter than shoulder length. I’m the polar opposite with thick, coarse, brown hair, so anything too blunt it tends to overpower my face. I want to cut my hair badly mainly because I want to grow out some of my dead ends, and because I don’t really like the attention long hair gets, even though I like the way it looks now that I’ve been taking care of it and conditioning/toning the blonde in it. I think my whole psychological complex around short hair stems from the fact that I hate how men think long hair is like some sort of sex signal. I love my hair for me, not because I’m in interested in other people or want to be bothered with idiot men.

No. 104849

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."

>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.

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.

If you have the money for a stylist, I would recommend having them restore your hair to its original color over the course of the next several months.

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.

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.

yeast is amazing for hair growth.

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.

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.

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".

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/

I use:
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.

late, but yes anon! i was dealing with horrific grease with a grown out ombre. i wanted to grow out my natural hair for so long! then i found myself having to wash it so frequently. it tried 'no poo' but i hated how it looked styled, as my hair is naturally fine and loves to get stringy. i went back to platinum a couple months ago and now it takes about 7-10 days for my hair to get properly greasy like it did. the only downside is spending a bit more on revitalising products because your hair really does struggle being so dry, and most it really sucks every bit of moisture up quite quickly. but yeah, i'm happy i don't have to wash it all the time now. good luck!!

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.

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.

This is really embarrassing but I have psoriasis that’s spread to my scalp. It’s gotten to a point where I’m always shedding skin and can’t even wear my hair up anymore for fear of looking like a snowy mountainside. The problem is that most treatments for regular dry, flaky scalps don’t work on psoriasis and in some cases make it worse. Do any farmers have a solution for this problem?

Is it possible to fuck up your hair with a hairbrush?

I recently changed my old hairbrush to a new one with sturdier, longer bristles and in a matter of a week my hair went to complete shit. It's incredibly frizzy but it feels like it lost half of the volume at the same time. It also feels weirdly shorter.

Help.

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.

No. 106031

if you want volume but still want it to seem sleek and styled id recommend practicing blowouts! maybe switch to a shampoo and conditioner meant for "sleek" hair and using a sleek/straightening serum too and then blow dry with a nice round brush. you can get the styled look you want and it'll be smooth but you won't have it be so flat and limp like you would if you use a straightener. also i like those powders for volume you can get to put in your roots because they really make your hair look big and luxe.

All those "perm" treatments do is slightly take away your frizz which I haven't even noticed it doing that. I've had keratin treatments and brazilian blowouts many times before I realized I was wasting my time and damaging my hair. I mean, once you hit the shower, your hair's going to be curly again.

do you want permanent straightening results or just temporary so you can keep your hair curly? If you don't want any chemicals and just want it straight for temporary, look into a silk press. They do wonders and its just the technique of some oil products, blow drying and flat ironing. My hair comes out looking like I got it chemically straightened. it will revert to curly once it hits moisture or gets wet and wrapping it in a scarf is crucial to keeping it straighter for longer. Keratin treatments are temporary but they supposedly last a month or so. I hear they're very damaging though, so i think its better to just do silk presses. I did have my hair permanently straightened with a relaxer in the past. Its too drying and it doesn't get it bone straight. I stopped doing that and switched to thermal reconditioning/Japanese straightening which gets my hair permanently straight and its more healthy. it saves me a lot of time after washing it, and easier to keep from tangling. it still holds a curl if i use a curling iron.

I started the CG method again a month ago, and my hair becomes almost completely straight a few hours after washing. It was actually curlier when I didn't do CG.
I know there can be a transitional period, but I have done CG in the past for 3 years and my hair was always a 3a with bits of 2c, just more frizzy when i didn't do CG.
I mean I ain't mad, but, I still am? I just decided to go full curly again, and now i barely get a 2a.. I used to need a blowout and straightening to achieve that.
Did anyone else's curly hair almost completely straighten when you changed routines (not necessarily CG method)? It just feels so unnatural to me.

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.

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.

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 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.

I have a similar hair texture but my hair is wavy/curly. Short cuts really help a lot by not weighing everything down but tbh you're never going to get a really nice look without styling. I'd say go for shoulder length or slightly shorter and try using curlers and mousse for volume. Curlers are my go-to for quick styling because you can wet your hair a bit, roll it and either blow dry or air dry while you get ready. Takes 10-20 minutes at most but makes a huge difference look-wise.

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.

Nta I’m not 100% sure, because I’ve only had a keratin treatment done once. But from what I understand, those treatments require opening the shaft of the hair to be effective. Doing that can cause damage if your hair is in a poor state, if you have virgin or healthy hair, you typically won’t notice that damage. But in hair that is more porous and potentially damaged, it’s not worth it.

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.

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.

This all depends on if it fits your skintone. I'm going from black to blonde currently and the lighter shades look better on me, which I personally find to be a huge surprise.

I went blonde for a year and the constant maintenance is expensive and annoying. Especially if you have dark brown hair, they have to tone it too which adds up. I remember every time I went it was like at least $60. I hate roots showing too so it was like $120 a month just to maintain my hair, lol.

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.

No. 110841

>>110794

Those are conditioning and texture enhancing ingredients. Isopopryl or denatured alcohol is drying. It may be a good idea to research what each individual ingredient does in a cosmetic formula as there is a lot of confusion as to what is what.

I have wavy hair that I've never taken care of properly before. I'll be transitioning to curly girl products this week, but need to be able to brush or comb my hair throughout the day. What can I do to make this work? I think I have 2b hair, but don't know about the porosity.

No. 110875

How to be able to comb your hair throughout the day really depends on all of these other factors that you should know, like porosity. Before just buying whatever and wasting time and money, do some research into your hair type.

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.

I need help badly. I went natural in summer 2017. everything was fine until my scalp started to get sore. terribly so to the point that even just moving it hurt too much. it was hard to wash my hair because of the tenderness, my eyes would water. I'd endure it in order to thoroughly wash it (my natural hair is thick as shit) because washing would relieve the pain by about 30% I'd say. it never went away until I gave in and relaxed it. immediately the pain disappeared. it was as if I didn't just spend 6 months in agony.

ofc I get tired of relaxing my hair (which is why I went natural) and cut it all off a month or two ago. the soreness came back early as hell. it's getting more intense as my hair grows. I comb it/detangle it and wash it thoroughly but again, washing only lessens the pain slightly. I have my bf rub and massage my scalp from time to time already. is there anything I can do? I'm actually thinking about putting it in a protective style soon.

I bleached my hair over a year ago to the point of significant breakage, I have a lot of natural length and have cut off most of the bleached stuff except for about maybe two inches.

But ever since then I have had really bad, brittle hair, even the "virgin" hair I am growing breaks off - especially around the hairline, there are tons of whispies where there haven't been before. And I am getting really have dandruff at the very front of my hairline and around it, but not really toward the back…

Anyone have any similar experiences and know how to restore their hair back to normal? This is really saddening for me

I mean I've seen posts about people having sore scalps when their hair is growing but not to the extent mine has gotten.

You have to cut all of the breakage and damaged virgin hair off. I dealt with the same. If you don't, it will travel further up your hair and the virgin hair will be a mess as well.

-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

Hate to say it, it's not the answer you want, but the best thing really is to chop it the fuck off. I did the exact same to my hair and made chewing gum out of it, spent ages trying to salvage it, and the best thing I ever did was just bite the bullet and get a pixie cut even though I HATED it. Hair grew out fine after that. No matter what you do or how you pamper your hair you cant get it back to normal, and if you just try to grow it out, the damage will travel up to your roots.
