Do Asian salons do a better job of dying Asian hair? I'm assuming they do but just to be sure, I want a second opinion from you guys.
I have extremely thick hair and its annoying and sheds so much. in the shower I end up with two balls of hair but my head is not balding?>>142121
I get massive clumps but that might be from mental disorders or genetics, lots of reasons.

I relax my hair since I can't deal with natural and just eanted to say if any black anons are doing the same, jojoba oil has been doing wonders for keeping it hydrated after adding lotion to it.
You do you boo. Most products that curly girls use in their hair make me break out like no joke, so I keep my hair straight in order to avoid shitty acne.
There was no way I was designed to have curly hair. I sometimes feel like I was God's joke.

It’s a lot of info but worth it imo. You do kinda need to switch over all your products at once but just start at the top with the beginner routine (see pic). For wavy hair the squish to condish (google it) method is wonderful and I’d never thought to apply gel in my hair but I use Hairwonder botanical styling gel extra strong and it’s absolutely great in giving me curls.

My virgin hair is like pic related. My body hair is light blonde. I tried a lightening spray a few years ago with peroxide (I think?) in it, and my hair turned strawberry blonde and brassy which I didn't like.
Will lemon juice + sun also make my hair brassy? And will a purple shampoo/conditioner help with natural, lemon + sun induced brassiness?

I tried Weightless Volume. My scalp and hair gets very greasy fast. When using this shampoo I found it difficult for my hair/scalp to feel clean after one wash with it so I work often have to wash 1-2 more times. Once I adjusted to it, it did seem a little better.
However since you want hydration this could be your product. I'd say to give it a shot!

Any mohawk/deathhawk/undercut/etc. anons? How do you maintain your hairstyle, at home by yourself or with someone's help, or do you just go straight to the barber? I've had my sides shaved for a few years now and always do the maintenance on my own, but as the middle part keeps getting longer I get even more anxious over making mistakes and accidentally clipping off some of the longer hairs that'll take forever to grow back. Especially since a couple months ago I started growing sideburns like in the pic, I have to be even more careful now. If you shave at home, how do you make sure that both sides are even and symmetrical? Any tips on making the whole shaving process a bit easier and less tedious in general?
Tie your long bits down really tight and gel/wax the edges down, just make it really difficult to accidentally clip them.
Get a good double mirror setup and let your arms rest, you'll make mistakes if you're tired.
What do you mean by even and symmetrical? The sides will be the same if you use the same grade of clipper all the way around.

i am by no means an expert but many people 'refresh' their hair after a day or two between washes. you typically dampen your hair and use some kind of product to add some moisture or definition to your curls

i’m a natural blonde and i’ve tried to go medium/dark brown for the longest time, but i’ve had some bad salon experiences and i’m nervous. i managed to keep my hands off my hair during quarantine except for trimming it, and now that salons are open in my city, i want to go try to go brown again but i’m terrified of another bad experience. the problem is my hair pulls ash tones like crazy and i always wind up with an almost charcoal color instead of brown. both times this happened the stylists just tried to fix it by adding golden highlights or a glaze and it really just wasn’t what i wanted. it was also impossible to get the color out of my hair, so i was stuck with something i hated for a long time. i just want chocolate brown hair - how hard is it to get something like pic related? any stylist anons have any tips on what i should let my stylist know?
If you don't know shit about hair care and you have tailbone-long hair then maybe consider going a bit shorter. This can't look good.
For a very long time I had hair this lenght, then gradually went waist, above waist and now mid-back and honestly I find this lenght superior - you get the "long hair looks" but with no "haggard horsegirl" vibe. It also looks healthier in general.
okay sperg off.
If it goes for sleep, basically whatever you can do to prevent rolling around on it. You can put it in a very loose bun, or a high pony (where the pony goes up, on the pillows). The braid is believed to limit breakage, you won't pull on hair, it won't catch up in anything but you can still sleep on your braid accidentaly (and you gotta deal with waves). Same goes for everyday care, wearing hair up will prevent damage. But tbh why wear the long hair up? It's long for a reason lol.
Secure the ends with silicone serum. Read about PEH balance. It's a rabbit hole if you want to truly take care of your hair

So because of corona i had to dye my, usually rainby colors, hair black to match my black roots, I used a cream color not permanent dye, the black was also more like a deep dark purple than traditional black with red undertones.
It now has faded do a dark wine-ish color because my hair was a magenta pink before it all, and oh boy it looks weird, also because i have a pixie-bob so it’s basically three inches of natural hair three inches of the weird wine color.
Since my hair is basically split 50/50 between healthy natural hair and dyed hair will it fry too much if i go straight to bleach?
My hair tends to handle bleach better than average so normally im not too worried but I’ve never had to bleach a black that wasn’t the one in my roots, im usually pretty satisfied with my dye jobs and i was planning to go for a grungy blue now but now im not sure what to do.

How do I remove tangles/knots from my hair without ripping through them with my comb? I know you're supposed to start at the bottom and work your way up, but I'm still just ripping/tearing through the tangles to get rid of them.
pic unrelated, just pretty hair.
You need one of two things (or both):
2. Water flow
I highly recommend that you do it in the shower unless your hair is completely matted and fucked up where water will be wasted because of it. If you don't feel like wasting water just put some water and conditioner (2:1 ratio respectively) in a spray bottle and get your hair wet before combing.
Why people brush/comb dry hair, I will never understand…..
File: 1596288225667.jpg (60.32 KB, 1000x1000, 51nrhPs1nWL._SL1000_.jpg)
Agreed with this anon. Apply a decent amount of conditioner in the shower and very gently comb out the tangles with your fingers or a brush like pic attached. The conditioner is like lubricant and the water will make your hair stretch instead of break as you comb.
Thanks. Wetting my hair in the shower in the morning is not an option but I'll give the 2:1 mix in a spray bottle a try. I assume I don't have to spray it dripping wet? Like how wet should I make it? Should I use a comb like this >>145981
too? Currently I'm using a wooden wide tooth comb.
>Why people brush/comb dry hair, I will never understand…..
that's how I've been taught and I never second guessed it
File: 1596296849583.jpeg (69.54 KB, 683x1025, 43728393_066_b.jpeg)
I'd say start off dampening your hair, not to where it's drenched, even a little moisture will help.
If it's still difficult to work with, try spraying a little more at a time. Im assuming this is in the morning, so I know you probably don't want the wet hair look.
And I personally don't use that comb unless it's when I'm washing my hair and want to get dandruff off of my scalp but I use a brush like pic related on my boyfriend's hair (it's really long and straight) and a denman brush on my hair (textured)
File: 1596316230080.jpg (24.25 KB, 314x400, moroccangold.jpg)
this product really helps detangle my hair. I have the same problem you're describing and I feel like this leave in mask just works really well as a detangler too? I just use a few spritz when my hair is damp before I start combing and I feel like it works better as a detangler than anything lol. I would try those wet brushes other anons mentioned too

I have never been interested in dying my hair until I saw this
I have a Slip pillowcase. I have to wash it at minimum once a week or else I start breaking out - more than I would with a cotton pillowcase.
As for hair health, I can see it working for those with more brittle hair. You can run your head across it and it feels really cool and smooth, pretty much no friction.
I have very healthy virgin hair so I personally haven't seen a difference in breakage. I also can't say I feel any discomfort when I'm in a bed with a cotton pillowcase.
But if you want to splurge and feel fancy as hell, go for it. Just be prepared to hand wash every 5 days or so.
Lol I've tried long bobs before and they're not bad, but they only look full with tons of chunky layers (which aren't in style now) and like an hour of styling which is time that I don't really have
It's fine though, I'm trying to learn all about lace fronts so I can start wearing those full time, it'll be expensive but worth it I think
thanks for your input!
I already cut a lot off, (approx 10 cms) and I really don't want to cut more so I guess Im stuck with just letting the grays grow….or try to find another hair stylist but Ill probably get the same answer .
Are you sure it's breakage though? You naturally lose a lot of strands everyday and everyday new strands start to grow back in because of it. Over a long period of time this causes new growth of all lengths.
Other things you could do to prevent breakage are using elastics without metal or scrunchies and eliminating heat all together. Even straightening your hair only once a week is still burning it once a week. Be careful with how you brush it regardless of whether it's wet or not.

I chopped about an inch off my ends (my hair is straight & even length to my nips) using a pair of really sharp nail scissors and finished with thinning shears. It doesn't even look half bad.
I parted my hair down the middle, wet it slightly, joined both sides in a ponytail juuust under my chin and put another ponytail holder above the ends I wanted chopped off. Kinda like pic

OMG guys help please…Half a year ago I dyed my hair dark auburn colour with a semi permanent box dye. I did not like the result but I thought that in a month or two, it would fade anyway. It did not, so today I used a hair color remover to get it out, The problem is, it did not remove the hair dye, it just made my hair a couple of shades lighter and now it is bright red!!! For fucks sake I can't go to job interviews looking like Carrot Top. What do I do?? Should I just buy a dark brown boy dye and dye it again? Would that do further damage to my hair? The hair color remover made my hair texture weird and it also smells rancid. pic is the product that I used

I would invest in good shampoo and conditioner. Biosilk is available at most grocery stores and has worked wonders on my dry hair! It’s really lightly scented and gentle which I love. You can also invest in some single use hair masks and just do those once a week or every other week whenever you feel like you need it. You can find them at target or Walmart in the ethnic hair section but I feel like anyone can use them? Idk it’s really worked for me and I have thin straight hair that gets dry easily. Also biosilk has an oil you can use a little teeny bit of on your ends which helps prevent splitting! That’s my advice product wise, I really don’t style my hair much. Maybe Pinterest tutorials !??

Are we encouraged to post our hair transformations? Either way, I'm posting mine. My hair has completely changed overnight! When quarantine started, my hair went nuts. It wouldn't stay clean longer than a day, wasn't nearly as wavy as it'd been in the past no matter what I did. I found out that coconut oil molecules don't penetrate the hair shaft, and cut those products out of my routine. My hairdresser friend suggested I use a 2:1 conditioner:shampoo ratio but that gave my hair an awful residue/build up. Luckily I went to see him for a bangs trim the day after trying his cowash suggestion and his senior stylist came over and gave me the advice that's changed my life!
My hair is fine, low porosity, average-to-thick density. It hates conditioner. No matter the amount or the brand, ingredients, etc. it'll weigh my hair down without a doubt. She suggested I go with her routine, as she has similar hair to mine:
>On wash day, cleanse hair with an astringent shampoo (I use Carol's Daughter Wash Day Delight)
>Follow with a much more moisturizing shampoo (I use Shea Moisture's Manuka Honey and Marufa (jojoba) Oil shampoo), working it through the hair like you would a conditioner — starting from the ends and moving up, finger detangling the whole time. Let sit 5-10 minutes as you complete the rest of your shower routine.
>Rinse hair with warm water.
>Take a shower brush (I use a boar bristle one) and run it through length of hair so as not to have any residue, especially at the scalp.
>When out of shower, take a large cotton t-shirt and wring hair out via a scrunching motion. Go in with styling product of your choice (only one I use is Miss Jessie's Soft Jelly Curls) applying first with prayer hands before raking it through. Scrunch the hell out of your hair and let air-dry. Can also diffuse it once hair is 50-75% of the way dry.
I've also discovered the Godsend that is satin night caps. I feel like I'm going to milk some cows when I put it on, but it's made a significant difference in how much I need to refresh my hair in the morning. The only downside is that it flattens my roots.

I want to get a long, layered fringe (something like pic) but I have a cowlick in my front hairline. Is getting a fringe a bad idea?
from previous thread reporting back with an update.
I've been using nizoral shampoo and minoxidil (Rogaine) consistently for just shy of three months now and it seems to be making a difference. I went to see my stylist who also happens to be my older sister for my first cut-and-color in six months due to lockdown and figured I needed to disclose what happened and what I was using in case anything might react to another. Broke down a bit, told her everything, and god bless her, she was so supportive. We're not super close so it helped a lot. She looked over my scalp and told me that I have so many baby hairs coming up already that she's guessing the next time we do my hair it's going to be totally different. I've been applying it around my hairline too so I can more easily see the difference as it grows and it's definitely denser. I'm still pretty anxious about the whole situation, but I wanted people to know that Rogaine is an option, it's not male-only (women can even use the 5% that's usually branded as "for men only", just only use it once a day rather than twice like the "women's" 2%), and AS LONG AS YOU APPLY IT CORRECTLY AND CONSISTENTLY (directly to the scalp, 1-2 times a day, EVERY. DAY.) it seems to be working. If it keeps improving and I like where it ends up, I honestly almost feel kind of obligated to spread the gospel. I was so ashamed to need it, but seeing an actual difference now makes me want to dismantle that shame and stigma. I had considered using it before all this because my hair was already thin and fine and I was always jealous of girls with thick, full hair, and now I wish I had just gone for it way back then.

This is what it looks like in the light, though I suppose it's too dark to be dirty blonde.
I think in this case I'll leave it be, I hate how colored hair looks great the first few days then it just looks messy and ruined no matter what you do with it.

Since ash blonde is currently the subject; i've been thinking about letting my hair go natural/virgin.
I have been slightly lightening it with camomill extract spray (which is a natural way to bleech it essentially), but it's still damaging.
Like most Nordic people, my hair is a natural Ash blonde, often referred to as rat/mouse coloured, and I've always felt like most people think it's ugly or dirty looking since they call it "dirty blonde".
But since there's a new trend to have literal old people grey hair now, I'm wondering if it's become more trendy/acceptable to have ash coloured hair??
(see pic for the average nordic ash blonde hair, mine's ashier/less brassy, if that makes any sense)
I know lush is treating their employees like shit, but I love their shampoo bars. Tried drug store ones, but they didn't do it for me.
I never hat this issue before, maybe try out different shampoo bars, you skin might like them more?

I started using this a few months ago bc i hate using conditioner and my hair seems to be growing really fast, its always soft, and it never feels dry or greasy. Definitely recommend, its $10 at target

what hair color is this? it's pretty
I wouldn't advise you to slap dark brown box dye on your head at home just to cover the pink, it has somewhat high chances of looking shitty and low chances of being removed succesfully when you get tired of the upkeep or want to go lighter again.
Just wait for the pink to wash out unless you really hate it that strongly. If you shampoo it several times in a row and rinse with hot water whenever you wash your hair, you could probably get most of it out in two to three weeks (assuming the brown is virgin hair). Then I'd do a bleach bath (look it up) just on the balayage bits to get whatever's left over out of there as well. It shouldn't put up much of a fight, pink is one of, if not the easiest color to remove in my experience.

I've been wanting to get wispy bangs for a while now, but I have super thin patchy hair (I have female pattern hair loss). Has anybody had experience with bangs and thin hair or would it be better to just steer clear altogether?
I have the same colored hair as you and I came to the same conclusion as you have about it. That was ~2 years ago and there's one more trim to go before it is 100% virgin hair again. I'm so glad that I made the decision and now I get to reap the rewards finally. haha
I looked it up a while ago and got such an ego boost from all the articles about how mousy blonde hair was in
and how to get it. Look those up for inspo lol
I was also extremely over dying my hair as I had been doing it for like 10+ years. The atrocities…
I'm not an expert, BUT it depends on a few things, like the hair dye because there are different types of dye. I'm assuming you mean permanent hair dye which goes into the hair shaft. yes it damages your hair, but not very much, not as much as bleaching it. bleaching your hair actually puts holes in your hair and makes it thinner.
for your second question, I don't really know to be honest, again it would depend on the hair dye. there is such thing as demi permanent hair dye which doesn't go into the hair shaft (it just clings to the outside of your hair) and is supposed to come out eventually.

Pic related is my hair
I'm obsessed with red hair. Do you think my hair is too dark to be dyed a natural looking red, or is would it have to be bleached? Also ignore the unicorn toy in the back lol
So shiny I thought you had grey hair from all the reflection.
It would be a pity to lose all that shine by dying it.
She's not asking if she should dye it, anons. I think your hurr natural hair is better durr comments are inconsiderate when she clearly says she wants red hair. Her hair won't all crumble from a dye job, she can dye it back or regrow it virgin if she doesn't like it. But it's cool to try new things.
To answer you question, anon, you don't have to bleach it, red will work on dark blonde.
It's not inconsiderate to compliment someone, lol
Bad day, anon?

To actually answer anon's question…
I don't think you have to bleach it, your color looks close to mine and I've dyed mine red several times with no trouble. I actually use henna, which is nice because it doesn't cause damage to hair cuticles. My hair always feels very thick and full afterwards, and the color turns out to be a rich auburn similar to pic, which I think looks nice and natural.
I have wanted to go more of a ginger/coppery color, which would likely require bleaching, but if you're good with a richer red than you should be good to go.

From what i've heard you can get a very good results using henna to dye your hair which is not damaging since there's no bleaching, here you have an example of the resutls before (on the right) and after.

Ok anons im the bitch from the vent thread who had pictures used to catfish, my hair is currently a weird faded out turqoise-green color, pic related.
What can throw over it that's not black, (my natural hair is black and you can see the roots in most picture so you can tell its me) over it asap that's going to look somewhat presentable?
I was thinking of ginger red and also dyeing my eyebrows ginger, but will the green mess it up?

There's some residue that gets left in the tub but nothing I couldn't get rid of with a bit of scrubbing. I use Surya Brasil, which is noticeable for its image of some fancy long-bearded old dude with a pretty lady haha. More recently I bought a box of Light Mountain, which has cute animals on it. Similarly simple instructions, although I do see a segment that talks about optional lemon juice and tea. They list that as a "special effect" you can include which is supposed to help "bring out golden highlights in already light hair."
I have been a long time henna user. I usually let my henna sit for four hours in a warm place and then you can keep it on your head anywhere from 1-5 hours (I usually just watch a movie) If your hair isn't naturally black you will see color immediately but it does take 48 hours to 'settle' into its real color. Pros
Great for your hair and if you have any sort of scalp issues.
Looks shiny and healthy (if you use red…I find that using indigo to make black or brown makes my hair look dull?)
If your hair is long and thick it can be a pain to apply and wash out.
It can be hard to get an exact color because all hair is different.
I have used henna from NightBlooming on Etsy (kitsune fire fox), Light Mountain (dark brown) and Henna Color Lab ( wine red, black, dark brown. If you want more information sites like hennasooq and nightblooming are great places to start, also there are lots of forums like long hair community with peoples stories/how they mix their henna

A bob with bangs isn’t outdated per se but the horizontal parting of the bangs kind of is. If you want it to look more current you could part and cut the bangs more like a triangle shape.

I’ve been using exclusively curly girl method for about 5 months now, and this is the first time that I tried to skip hair gel and other styling products in my routine. With full routine my hair looks like every girl with wavy hair on the curly hair subreddit. Now my hair looks kinda like pic related (not me). Straight on top but wavy at the bottom. It’s very similar to how it was pre-CGM but much softer and now, 4 days after washing, it still looks and feels fine with 0 effort.
The only downside is that my hair feels a bit slippery (but not oily) and no hairstyles will stay, I sleep with a braid in and it’s everywhere in the morning, and hair bonnet is a lost cause. I can only wear my hair down and obviously it gets in my face like that. But doing a half updo or pinning it back makes it look lifeless without the curls, probably because of the way it was cut. I will do my full routine again next wash day which includes a protein curl cream and gel so that the waves are more evenly distributed through my hair instead, but I’m very happy with what CGM’s been doing for me.

Do you think Karen Gillan's hair matches her skin? This might sound like a dumb question I guess, but I saw someone on a forum a long time ago saying it didn't, and now I'm paranoid because I really want this hair color but I'm afraid it won't match. I don't have her exact skin tone but I'm naturally a brunette so I'm worried it won't match my skin tone and I'll look stupid. I have no idea what her natural hair color is.
Just because someone is a natural something it doesn’t mean it actually suits them, my natural color looks awful on me.
She looks good with red tho.

I have similar coloring to you and I've wanted to do some kinda ombre blonde like this for a while. When the roots match your eyebrows, it looks a lot more natural imo, and also tends to grow out in a more flattering way.

what type of blonde is this?>>152459
I would recommend masks from Planeta Organica, also korean aloe gel Holika Holika, it does wonders for hair of all types, and it's great not only for hair and scalp, but also face and body. You can get the gel on amazon.https://www.amazon.com/Holika-Aloe-Soothing-250ml-Seller/dp/B01NBZST89/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=holika+holika&qid=1600984411&sr=8-3
I don't know about the PO masks though, they're popular in Russia and some european countries but I haven't seen them in american internet stores
Babushka Agafia has some good and available maskshttps://www.ebay.com/itm/2x-300ml-Grandma-Babushka-Agafia-Natural-Bio-Yeast-Hair-Mask-Stimulating-Growth-/173803630421
Best mask ever is your favorite conditioner + 1teaspoon honey + 1teaspoon argan/olive oil, mixed well.
Honey is a humectant that draws hydration into the hair, and oil will make it smooth and glossy.
Shampoo, towel dry hair and apply mask for at least 20 minutes. Rinse with cool water. Works like a charm!

has anyone had any experience with high-lift color? i want to go from a dark/medium brown to a cool light ash/mushroom brown without spending hours in a salon
thing is anon, bleaching is the ONLY way to lift your hair colour. You either lift and deposit colour separately (salon) or use box dye to do both at once (lift and deposit).
Box dyes aren't all bad, but high lift ones are very damaging because they use 40vol bleach to make sure they lift even the darkest natural black hair in one go. For natural medium brown hair (white people hair lol) you never need more than 20vol.
Bleaching hair at home is intimidating but if you only want a few levels of lift, you can do a bleach bath. It's much easier and you don't have to be as precise because you tone down the bleach with shampoo and apply it more like a hair mask than dye.

I use solid shampoo + conditioner, rn I'm using pic related (American cream from Lush) and it works well for my fine hair, it doesn't get them oily at all. Even if you get a bar conditioner that leaves your hair greasy, you could still use it as a pre-shampoo conditioner.
I've always wanted to try the ones from Chargrin Valley Soap, espcially their Henna shampoo bar
Natural thick, healthy, shiny platinum blonde hair is possible. There's a girl (well woman) I know from my childhood who has natural platinum blonde hair, and while all us other light blonde girls got darker hair throughout our childhood and teen years, she got to keep her perfect platinum blonde hair. I lowkey envy her to this day lol.
Bleached platinum blonde hair that's in good condition? I doubt it. Maybe if you come from a blonde that's already very light but not quite platinum.

I cut myself some straight bangs during lockdown and I liked them but not enough to keep them more than 6 months. I'm now growing them out and they are pic related length. They don't look as good tho and I'm looking for haircut inspo that would work with them. I want to cut my hair short, like at least shoulder-length, maybe shorter. I have really straight hair with little volume, face shape should go with anything. I'm two steps away from getting a stylish kpop bowlcut lite or something but I think my boyfriend wouldn't like it very much. idk, send inspo if you can!

Thanks anons, the first one is nice.
I'd love to go for a shag but I'm afraid my hairdresser fucks it up or that my straight flat hair is gonna make it look 2000s scene. Don't shag cuts need a lot of care?
File: 1601304582941.jpg (48.93 KB, 640x639, shag-haircuts-1578511164.jpg)
I think a shag could benefit from a little styling, like applying some leavein conditioner and scrunching in a light hold gel, but it's generally considered a wash and go style that can add more volume to fine hair because of the layering. I would say consult a hairstylist that you trust about it
Pic related is one example on fine, pin-straight hair

I think this exact photo was posted in the thread before but, I really want to get a shag exactly like this. I have wavy/curly hair that I think would naturally end up looking similar to this. But I'm REALLY worried the bangs won't suit me. I've had bangs probably a dozen times in my life, different types, and none of them suited me… I think it has to do with the fact that my face is a bit circular and even though I have a big forehead, the lower third of my face is a bit recessed so it looks weird with bangs? I'm not sure. What do you all think? I think it would suit my ginger hair but it would be an absolute bitch to grow out if it doesn't look good.
These types of 70s bangs are pretty forgiving and you can always make them more like a face frame type of thing. Can't really make an recommendations without you posting your actual face though.
I'd go to a really good expensive hairdresser for the first cut, one who knows what they're doing and can make it work for your face. After you get a cut you actually like take a lot of pictures so you always have a reference.

Curlers with the clamp are easier for most beginners, especially if you don't care for the vic secret wave, and look for a barrel size that corresponds with the curls you want. How well does your hair hold style and how concerned are you about heat damage? I had curly hair (2c/3a probably) that was fried and permed into weird frizz, and to get back to what my natural hair looked like, I use the sock method and just do it really tight and high, almost dry with leave in conditioner, sleep in it overnight, and that's been better for my hair, held better than heat curls, and looks more natural.

I keep seeing young people on every website talking about fearing their hair is thinning or receeding;
You are for sure under a lot of stress right now, their is a literal pandemic on, never mind the normal struggles of youth
Stress will make your hair brittle and fall out more easily
You aren't balding, you're just extremely stressed at the moment
If you can get your stress under control, the rest of your health will improve
If you can't un-stress right now, just try to remember that life goes week by week;
Yes the next week is coming, but take the weekend for all it's worth and know in your heart another one is coming inevitably
Even in the middle of the most miserable week, the weekend is that much closer
That said though, in your case, you might consider asking your doctor for birth control to regulate your hormones, would you also consider your body hair to seem a bit much? If yes to that, honestly that sounds like what happened in my 20s, I wound up getting an IUD and taking the pill at the same time, cleared my acne, annexed my periods, made my body hair and 'moustache' grow back in slower and thinner, and made the hair on my head significantly stretchier

I have had problems with thinning hair since I was 16. I remember doing test for androgen levels back then and everything was ok. They wanted to put me on hormones for my period but I was constantly on various meds for depression and I just didn't want to take even more pills. Now the only new thing is acne and receding hairline. I will make an appointment but I feel like it's just my shitty genes that make me extremely sensitive to stress, not hormones >>154628
Thank you anon, your words made me feel a little better. As for my body hair, everything is fine (at least for now), I never had any problems with excessive hair growth. I have to mention I have this old habit of scratching my head even though my skin is not itchy, I can't control it, I usually do it unconsciously when I'm deep in my thoughts. When I was 16-23 I would scratch my scalp until it started to bleed. It's not even remotely as severe now, but I wonder if it can still irritate my skin to the point of losing hair? Or maybe I permanently fucked up my skin?

with barbra's side profile in mind, which hairstyle do you think suits her best? do you know of any other celebrity with this sort of side profile?
mine is pretty much almost exactly like hers, except the tip of my nose is a lot more upturned. I really hated how big it was, even after I grew into it but then learned to actually be okay with it. Still though, a few days ago I saw a video of me with my hair down and I looked hideous and realized my side profile looks horrible not because of my nose alone, but also my forehead! I hate it sm now that I see it. Instead of being prominent or straight, it's sloped. I looked it up and this type of forehead is masculine, no wonder. I don't have a prominent browbone or anything, but I still hate how it basically makes me look like Phineas lol. Anyways, im wondering if I should just always have my hair up, or if maybe a simple low pony would look good too? I think the hair down looks worst because it creates a vertical line on the back of the head making the slope even more obvious, and styles that accentuate the shape of the head are better?

Lady Gaga is kind of similar
My hair is extremely similar to how you described, but I'll occasionally get some bendyness or an outright ringlet near my roots.
I have a lot of theories about buildup, but my hair has looked the best after ploppingfor a small amountof time in a tee (microfiber makes me frizzy) after dabbing the roots first. I haven't tried clipping, but I've heard of a lot of success there. I think the hair might get too heavy or there's buildup as the root
So there's a lot of information out there on the various types of polyquaternium. They're in hair products more often than not. A lot of CG approved products have them. It's there as a film former, at least that's the most basic definition.
I'm going to get some Kinky Curly Come Clean and attempt to start washing with that bare minimum once a week, maybe finding a cowash or low poo-ing the other days with shampoo that doesn't contain it. Evidently it can require a couple of washes to fully get some of them out. I'm considering a sulfate based clarifying shampoo to strip everything first.
Curlsmith In Shower Style Fixer has Polyquaternium-10 in it, but supposedly that's one of the easiest to wash out from what I've read. It's a great product that feels sort of like a mix between a balm and a gel to me, but you're required to use it on sopping hair. The plan is to detangle with Kinky Curly Knot Today, rinse most of it, then apply the hair product and plop in a tee, drying the roots a little first.
Same curl type, my hair is straight for about 15cm before the curl gets going. If your hair is fine, it might be the length is too much for your strands and the weight is pulling the roots straight.
The Deva cut is supposed to fix this problem with dry cut layers, but personally I don't like the way it looks on "white" hair, very eighties perm vibes because you don't get that lovely dense volume like with natural black hair.
Personally I embrace the straight roots and I think it's pretty, reminds me of rennaisance paintings.
I can get the roots to curl/wave nicely but only if I put big handful of mousse (not gel) on sopping wet hair, style with Denman brush, squish gently into curls, and then let drip/air dry over a few hours. Walk around with a towel over my shoulders. My hair looks awesome and the curls are perfectly formed, but man it's a drag so I only do it on special occasions.
Thanks anon! Yeah, my expectations are pretty realistic, although getting 3A curls would be lovely after a few tries.
For the plopping stage, do you HAVE to use mousse/gel? I find that my hair looks weighed down and greasy with even the faintest amount of leave-in product.

Similar to this. My hair is kind of in between thick and thin. The hair on the edge keeps flopping in over and looks like shit.

I'm not entirely sure but I don't think gel or mousse is optional. You need it to hold your waves/curls. Once it's dry you 'scrunch' out the cast so it shouldn't end up looking greasy.
I highly recommend looking up the Beginner Routine from r/curlyhair, the link is in the sidebar on the right. I know reddit is generally disliked here but this subreddit has all the info you could possibly need in one place, it's a really really good resource.

I let the toner sit for 30 minutes yesterday and I hate it, it looks gray and I’m thinking of going to Target to buy a blonde box dye. Should I go forward with this or put the bottle down?
Ok. Olaplex 3 for a couple of weeks once a week. You're going to have to suffer with wonky ass hair, I'm sorry. After you've treated it and given it that break, you need a neutral protein filler. It's a neutral base, it'll help hold onto the color without grabbing too much.
What color did you use? Brand and the color itself?

I used this brand. It did lighten most of my hair to a white blonde color but my hair feels dryer than usual now.
Where do they sell Olaplex though? Don’t you have to be a stylist to buy it? Right now the only conditioning treatments are a packet of ion damage repair, Garnier argon oil leave-in conditioner and another leave-in conditioner from my local visible changes salon, aloe Vera hair oil, coconut oil from some Hawaiian brand and a free vial of argon oil from Sephora which I found works for dry hair.

I did like how the color turned out, may not dye it again for awhile…
It's at Sephora. Make sure you clarify first, follow directions to a T, and don't leave it on any longer than they say to.
I can't tell how the color looks since your hair is bunned up, but if you're happy with it that's what matters. I've never had success with hair oils, but your hair can get overly conditioned and weighed down with a lot of conditioners/conditioning agents in tandem if it's fine.

i just got a hair cut similar to this, from having waist length hair in the front and some dumb undercut growing out at the back
i thought i'd hate it and miss the long hair but actually its fucking dope and my boyfriend suprisingly also loves it, also dyed it a dark red which came out pretty nice
big reccommend, i feel very hot
Well I'm not sure. I once used rice water after a day of sitting and it made my hair feel pretty strong and solid, but then I let it sit for 4 days or so and I was gagging at the smell, and I've got a pretty strong stomach.
Weeny fucking orange peels or whatever will not help. I had a shitload of essential oils and it did NOTHING to the smell. That shit stunk up my bathroom, my hair and even after several days I swear I could still smell it on me despite washing a bunch. It's not worth it unless you're poor or desperate.
But yeah actually, it made my hair beautifully shiny. Is it worth it if it smells like a dehydrated alcoholic pissed up my bathroom walls for a week after doing it? For me, no.
from what i've read, you're not supposed to let it ferment for that long. some people use it after only a half hour of soaking but i feel like 12 hours to one day (depending on the heat / humidity in your house and whether it's exposed to direct sunlight, sometimes it ferments much faster due to those factors) is the sweet spot for actual benefit to the health of your hair as opposed to just making it sleeker/shinier
if it's been fermenting for several hours to a day, you're also supposed to dilute it because the acidity increases the longer it ferments and too much acidity can be harmful for many types of hair (think of things like apple cider vinegar rinses and how they tell you to dilute it to avoid damaging your hair)
i've forgotten about my huge jars of rice
water for several days, i just dump it because even if i dilute it to the point where it's mostly filtered water and barely rice water, it smells and feels very acidic which i feel probably isn't good for my hair.
i hope this post isn't patronizing or rude, i'm not sure about the traditional ways to ferment and use rice water but i agree with you that it gets very gross after a few days, and i think it is also likely
to damage many types of hair because of the acidity>>156072
they make hydrating and moisturizing masks for your scalp, klorane's soothing shampoo with peony is supposed to be good for things like this but i haven't tried it personally
most people who have worked with hair for a long time say to avoid scalp scrubs and harsh clarifying shampoos because the scrubs can create microtears on your scalp (similarly to coarse scrubs for the face) and the really harsh stripping clarifying shampoos tend to dry out your scalp and roots
rene furterer's complexe 5 plant stimulating concentrate oil comes recommended by people who work a lot with hair and has good reviews, it's very expensive but might go on sale for the holidays. oils and creams specially formulated for the scalp are really good for a dry flaky scalp, you'll probably want to check the ingredients for fragrance and anything irritating though
a fragrance free dry oil for hair with non irritating ingredients might be a good alternative to a 50$ special scalp oil, they tend to absorb decently well and won't leave you greasy for a lower price point
castor oil (the real cold pressed oil kind, not the weird jelly by the same name) sweet almond oil and jojoba might do the trick for even cheaper
if it doesn't come in a dropper bottle you can buy multipacks of those applicator bottles you use for hair dye for dirt cheap and have a more precise application to the scalp without weighing down random parts of your hair
It's ok but I prefer cider vinegar rince with 2 drops of ylang ylang
For the "thickening" properties, henna does the same if not better

Alright so I went to a professional to get my hair dyed for the first time ever after only doing it myself for years. And honestly I'm a little bit disappointed after the 350$ I spent.
I gave them pic related for the hair color I wanted. They kept referring to it as "copper" which maybe should have been a red flag.
But anyway, my hair turned out super coppery/orange, not red like pic related and much lighter than what I asked for. It doesn't look bad, it actually is pretty and matches my skin tone and I like copper hair but it wasn't what I asked for.
My questions are 1) would you call pic related copper? And 2) for those of you experienced with hair dye, what shade/brand might make my hair look like pic related? I was gonna post a picture of how my hair turned out so you guys could see it, but in pictures it looks nothing like irl.
File: 1603654371673.jpg (61.94 KB, 570x570, wellaproblogredhaircolorsimage…)
Are you sure? Because this pic is basically what my hair turned out like. Do you think these two are the same color?
>>156617>under direct light in a hair salon
That's true, I got my hair dyed red and they took pics for insta, I was shocked when I saw them because it looks just like that photo. It looks much darker the rest of the time, not as vibrant as >>156614
but darker/more subtle.
File: 1603654818741.jpg (46 KB, 570x570, wellaproblogbrownhaircolorsima…)
reds are a litte flimsy with lighting and >>156614
would very likely look like >>156616
under direct light in a hair salon or outside in the sun.
(deleted because grammar lmao)
You should've shown something like pic related and asked for a Reddish/Wine Dark Brown, never mention copper or anything like that or it will be orange-ish.
go back for a correction anon. If this is what you gave them and walked out with this >>156616
you should be mad, because they bleached your hair unnecessarily to get it that light. That's your whole head of hair over-processed, damaged for no reason.
If you don't trust them to correct it, at least complain and get a free treatment out of it to repair some of the damage.
I know why they did it though, because basic bitch hairdressers get tired of using their eyes and "interpret" the reference you bring in instead of mixing a custom color. The pic you brought was vibrant red so the stylist went and picked the most vibrant red from the back so you wouldn't complain.
Your reference would look mostly brown in natural indoor light, so the stylist overcorrected (in the laziest way possible).
And $350? You should at least be happy with the result. Honestly after years of going to overpriced stylists I've learned that hair is lowkey easy if you do your research, I get way more compliments on my DIY cut & colour than I ever did from salons.
I swear hairdressers can't do red hair. It always looks unnatural, too orange, too red, too purple. They get creative and fuck up. Best bet imho would be choosing a permanent hair dye and/or henna and doing it at home. I strongly recommend henna and maybe cassia if you're in it for the long run.
Video related is pretty good if you want to know more about it.
I had super dry scalp and the only thing that actually worked was shampoo with urea as the active ingredient. Eucerin makes a good one but I've seen cheaper generics as well.
Use a silicone free conditioner like Shea Moisture afterwards and try avoid any heat styling, or any styling products except for leave in conditioner.
When your scalp heals you can go back to using more products, but you have to baby it for now or it'll get worse and worse.

Anons plz help me out, what should I do?
My hairline is so unfortunate, it's M-shaped and I don't have much hair on the my temples (not because of hair loss, it's been like this since forever) and because of this the hair on my forehead looks flat, thin, nearly see-through and very easily greasy.
My face in general is rather wide, especially my jaw, so my flat front hair is giving the illusion of me having an ugly pear/triangle shaped face. If wear my hair back it also looks awful and cavemanish.
I had bangs when I was younger but because of my wide face/square jaw and big nose that doesn't really suit me either.
Now I thought of getting ear or chin length side bangs to cover my sides and create some volume but I'm so bad at styling that I fear that those strands would just hang limp and greasy in my face.

i need to find a regular shampoo/conditioner instead of just buying what's on sale. what do you gals use?
if it helps, my hair is kinda wavy. it's thin, but i have a lot of it, so it's cut in layers to add volume and accentuate the curls. and it's prone to split ends, bleh
Maybe this is an old wives tale but I always heard it's good to change your shampoo/conditioner every few months because otherwise your hair gets used to it and you stop noticing the effects of it?
I've been switching mine up forever, rarely buying the same bottle twice in a row. Any anons know if that's even true?

hey anon. i also suffer from hair loss (a lot more extreme, i actually think your hair looks great but it might be because im comparing). you mşght wanna get a hormone check. high prolactin causes very bad hairloss. same with cortizol.
honestly, i dont notice anything wrong in this picture. dont worry, but still get a hormone check before its too late. im 20 now and been dealing with this since age 15 due to anorexia fucking my hormones. healthy eating and supplements (biotin/fish oil/vitamins) help a lot.
You can curl your hair by putting it in rollers or if you want wavy hair you can braid it before going to sleep and put on some hair mousse in the morning when you undo the braids. You can find so much more if you just google it.
I don't know about making hair less flat. I have the opposite problem
if you hair is straight naturally you might as well just give up on damage free curling because the curls will fall out by the end of the day if using rollers or braids etc, imo those methods only work if you have any texture to start with. as for volume, only thing I found that helps is kinda propping my hair up in little poofs when it's semi-wet still. when it gets bit greaser dry shampoo helps somewhat too.
t. flat thin straight hairlet
It's the Boots expert sensitive scalp treatment because I'm UKfag and also poor. Here's ingredients
Aqua (Water), Glycerin, Polysorbate 20,
Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba) seed oil, Xanthan gum, Caprylyl glycol,
Aloe barbadensis leaf juice powder, Sodium lauroyl lactylate,
Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium benzoate, Tetrasodium EDTA, Ceramide NP,
Phenoxyethanol, Ceramide AP, Phytosphingosine, Cholesterol, Carbomer,
It's not the best one I've tried but it does ok. It depends what your skin likes. You could probably do the same thing with moisturising face toner or very diluted water based moisturiser now that I think about it, if you put it in a spray bottle or nozzle bottle. If you wanted something to buy I found plenty by googling things like 'itchy scalp treatment tonic'. Good luck and moisturised scalps to everyone.

Can anyone give me some help? I want to get my hair like pic related but I dont know what it's called or how much the price would be. I've never gone to a salon so I'm quite nervous. My hair is brunette, a 4 or 5 (virgin hair, but the ends have been bleached a shade lighter). It goes down to my rib cage and it's thin.
To get hair like the picture, would I ask for foils? All over bleach? I'm lost lmao.
Hey friends no worries. If you can't find anything I'm sure a thin moisturiser with soothing ingredients would do basically the same thing, I'm going to use a face toner next to test that theory. Tbh I think anyone regardless of hair type should use a scalp treatment, if you find the right one for your skin it seems like it would help pretty much everything? My hair has been falling out less too.
Semi-related, I found out what each of the ingredients do using a site called https://incidecoder.com/
. You can dump a list of ingredients separated by commas and find out their function. Looks like this scalp treatment is mostly moisturisers with one anti-acne and one skin regulating ingredient.

My hair is naturally stick-straight and tends to look oily after only a day or two, but it's bleached and dyed a really beautiful cool purple that I want to maintain. I started putting it in foam rollers like pic related after shampooing and holy shit it's amazing. It air dries overnight so I don't get heat damage, and it looks amazing and clean for days afterwards. Definitely recommend.

I have very fine, dry, long slightly wavy hair (similar to pic) no matter what I do the ends are split and frizzy and my hair is NEVER shiny like it used to be.
I used to live somewhere pretty humid and had some shine to my hair and but since moving to the desert my hair has become permanently crisp despite never dying/heating it and using high moisture conditioners. I let it air dry and try not to overbrush but nothing seems to get it shiny and neat looking.
Has anyone managed to successfully change the consistency of their hair/gotten shinier hair without damaging it? do masks and balms even work?

My hair structure is similar to the one in the picture but longer. I have a lot of fine frizzy, wavy hair that looks like a complete mess when I brush it. How in the seven hells can I make it look neat and shiny? I always wanted glossy hair…
Nope, I struggle with the same. I've tried the curly girl method + adaptions for wavy hair, but I still end up with frizzy, dull hair. I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
I might look into the hard water thing.
you're probably protein sensitive if you're doing loads of masks and still have crunchy hair.
Switch to protein free products (Shea Moisture tea tree one is my fave)
Curly girl things that actually work: Never brush your hair dry. After shampoo, put in loads of conditioner, brush with wide tooth comb or Denman brush, squish curls and rinse just to clear the roots. It's OK to have conditioner left over in the lengths of your hair. Squish moisture out of hair and then air dry or plop in a cotton t shirt.
Sleep with hair in loose bun/top pony. If it looks crazy the next day, spritz it with water/ diluted conditioner so it's at least damp before brushing and styling.
It takes a little while to recover from protein overload. Give it two or three weeks.
ayrt, I also have fairly fine, not very dense hair so I feel you. I should have added that I use silicone free conditioner as well (and protein free as I mentioned) so my conditioner is not heavy at all, though it's moisturizing I don't get that coated, slippery slimy feeling that heavy silicone conditioners leave behind.
But of course everyone's hair is different!

tbh, CGM works the best for "ethnic" hair– coarse, kinky or extremely tightly-coiled hair with thick strands (i.e. 3C, 4A, 4B, and 4C). so much of traditional CGM focuses on using heavy butters and sealing oils, all while often not even using a shampoo. for coarse, kinky/coily curls the weight of the heavy conditioners produces an aesthetic elongating and smoothing effect; fine-stranded hair, even if it's very curly, will look extremely limp and greasy using this same methodology.
i have fine, frizz-prone, high-density 2C/3A hair (lots of wavy to curly strands with a thin diameter, in plain English). here's what was key for me:
>lightweight hydration>NO butter or oil based products>wash hair approximately every 2-4 days, averaging 3 days between washes>depends on how active i've been/how much ambient dirt i've encountered>hair feels either exceptionally dirty or exceptionally dry? use a lightly clarifying but sulfate-free shampoo paired with a deep conditioner that leans on the light side>rest of the time? a volumizing sulfate-free shampoo with a lightweight conditioner>lightly dry with a microfiber towel>when still damp: a panthenol-based conditioning spray + a texturizing spray >once 90%-100% dry: small amounts of a water-based, protein-rich pomade for taming frizz
for me, this combination of products results in light, bouncy curls that are hydrated sufficiently but aren't greasy. even without using a hairdryer, they have volume and spring up instead of being weighed down like they were with oils and butters.
it took me a ton of trial and error to find a method that produced the right combination of volume and definition i was looking for with my hair type. my current methodology hardly resembles the traditional CGM, but instead borrows some of its ideology (sulfate and silicone free, emphasis on no heat). i hope this helps someone out there!
File: 1604955302908.jpg (319.64 KB, 1600x1600, weird-al-pictured-2012.jpg)
I have similar hair to you, CGM doesn't work for me either. My ends are so dry and frizzy but my roots are noticeably oily a day after washing.
Curly hair is just so much goddamn work. You can follow all the different washing/styling methods you want and still not have it work right for your hair.
Avoid this ingredient, use this product, but who has the money to buy all this different shit? How do you avoid fragrance when every damn shampoo has it? I'd cut off my leg to have easy 2A hair.
Pic related, might as well be my dumbass looking hair.

I'm starting to get real tired of my long hair.
It's almost waist lenght, I grew it from a pixie cut. It was real pretty when it was bra-strap lenght, but now I look like a proper swamp witch.
It became thin, and I have a shit ton of fly away hair (ppl say it's either from breakage or new growth, but pretty sure it's breakage for me)
I don't really know what to do, it took me so long to grow it, approx 4 years. I'm considering stopping my sulfate/silicone free routine or I don't know, maybe getting layers or something will help, even tho I hate how dated it looks
Devacurl is honestly too expensive and now that it's making girls' hair fall out…yeah fuck that.
What's bothering me though, is that all of the brands like Shea Moisture and Maui Moisture are owned by huge businesses who tend to cut corners. I've heard of ingredients being replaced with garbage like corn syrup. I'll check out the other brands you mentioned though, thank you

I want to dye my hair myself, but I've only bleached my hair at home and I don't know how to color it. I know box dyes are bad and I should go to Sally's or buy the dye online, but I'm more worried about my hair turning green because I want to go from a virgin sort of medium blonde to a pretty decently dark brown (pic related is pretty much where I'm at now and the color I want) and I have no clue where to start with fillers and stuff (or if I even need a filler). Every youtube video I watch says something different, so idk what to do. I also don't want my hair looking flat and one-dimensional, so should I try adding some lowlights or something or will I get that result if I mix two colors? I've highlighted my own hair many times before so I'm pretty sure I could weave some lowlights in, but again, I don't know if I need to start by filling my hair or what I need to do.
Any anons have good recommendations for an at-home dye that will give results like picrel? General tips are also very much appreciated. Thanks!
What color undertones are you wanting? Darker hair colors can pull green because they have a blue/green or green base, usually called ash on the box. If you get a golden brown, this shouldn't be an issue on virgin hair, unless you heat style it constantly. I would go level 3 or 4 at darkest with a golden base.
How long is your hair?
File: 1605809641932.jpg (52.93 KB, 500x500, Medium-Chocolate-Brown-Hair.jp…)
I want a warm, chocolate sort of brown (the brown in my first post and pic related is exactly the kind of tone I want, I think it might almost be reddish?). Unfortunately my hair is naturally ashy and the few times I went brown at salons in the past, I wound up with an almost gray-brown initially even with professionals doing it. They corrected it, but my hair seems to seep all warmth out of any color I have lol. Do you think a golden brown would add warmth or would I need a reddish-brown if not a filler? And my hair is just below my shoulder-blades.
If I add a contactfag on the friendfinder for it with a sharklasers email, it would be welcomed but no pressure.
I can make you out a diagram, but I'm not trying to shit up the thread with real personalized advice. I can work around it if you're more comfy that way
Alright, here goes.
Sally Beauty visit:
-1 bottle Colorful brand neutral protein filler (keep color without bleeding out as easily, equalizes porosity). You can use the ion brand, but I don't have any experience with how well that works.
-1 tube of Ion Color Brilliance 4G, 1 tube of Ion Color Brilliance 5N. I'm leary on your color coming out too dark and anything above a 5 can pull really disgustingly muddy. Having too much neutral can also give a muddy appearance, the protein filler can help balance hair sucking in too much of the color.
-4 oz of 20v creme developer. If you want to stick to the Ion brand, that's probably formulated the best to work with it.
-Plastic bowl that you can thoroughly mix everything in
-vaseline only on your hairline and ears, just a light coat, don't get it in your hair.
-hair color remover wipes to get anything off that you missed
-an applicator brush
After you've gotten the vaseline on your hairline/ears, you can start on your color mix. The color mix starts to develop, so you wait to do that part last.
There's a few different ways you can approach the protein filler. I would just mix half of it in with the color mix, that way it's being used through the whole head for the same amount of time.
Squeeze the entirety of all of the tubes into your plastic bowl and mix extremely well. The ratio is 1:1 for developer, so if you get a 4 oz bottle, it should give you just enough. Make sure you've gotten every drop out of there and pour it first.
Don gloves and start applying all over the head, gently running the color through to the ends. You'll want to make sure that your hair is ABSOLUTELY saturated. Cremes usually make up a thicker texture, but that protein filler should help thin it out a little bit to make a better spreadable consistency. Wait 25 to 30 minutes, and rinse completely from your hair. You can use a little bit of the water and suds it up with the color to begin a lather and get it out more effectively. Apply a deep conditioner afterwards and rinse thoroughly.
I hope this advice gives you great results and doesn't fuck up your hair. Good luck.

I like this product, Derma E Scalp Relief Conditioner. I know this might not be your exact situation, but my scalp tended to feel dry and itchy and even after trying a bunch of "anti-dandruff" shampoos nothing seemed to work. This stuff feels great, scalp doesn't itch now and it doesn't make my hair oily and greasy (although I primarily just use it on my head/scalp). Apparently it uses salicylic acid for scalp exfoliation plus tea tree oil for soothing skin.
File: 1606000636663.jpg (12.46 KB, 425x425, scalp.jpg)
dandruff is not the same as flakiness in the sclap. dandruff is produced when your scalp is oily and flakes are just dead skin cells in a dry scalp.
i have dry scalp and doing an oil treatment has saved my hair. i put sweet almond oil in my scalp and massage it either with your fingers or with a shampoo brush (pic rel) leave it overnight and wash my hair with a sulfate free shampoo (because sulfates are very drying and will irritate your already dry scalp even more) also scrubbing the scalp really well while shampooing. then deep condition with a moisturizing hair mask or leave your regular conditioner a few minutes before rinsing it out completely. and i will also recommend shampooing your hair just once a week and cowashing in between if you need it. once in a while, maybe once a month clarify your hair with a shampoo that has sulfates in it but try to use a "low poo" that has less sulfates than regular shampoo.
Tidy and neat will not work. You need bangs because your forehead sucks and you can't go for the blunt bangs that look tidy because as you said you have>meaty jaw>wide face>big nose
Anything super clear-cut/blunt will emphasize the meatiness of your face.

I want to cut my hair short again after growing it out with my bangs to see if I'd like it,
used to have a short blunt bob with straight bangs before but it looked flat and boring,
I'd go for a pixie cut but I have a round face and I don't think it would be flattering, so I'm considering something like this.
Would I look like a Karen? I know it's a tacky early 2000s cut but it's something I've always liked alongside lady's hair in dmc lol
I assume I would simply have to style it with gel so it doesn't seem like a lot of maintenance either? I just really want short hair again
If you go to a good stylist they will update it and make it flatter you. It's a cute feminine cut, I'm sure you could make it work.
IMO Karen cuts are notable for being done really badly, so just don't cheap out.
if its blonde with roots like this? yes you will look like a karen
if its black or dark brown? nah
If your hair is dark, you won't be able to go blonde on first dye. You will probably end up dying it every 2 - 4 weeks to avoid damaging it / balding.
Also I usually straighten my hair before bleaching and my hair has never broken or fallen out. Easier to get an even cover this way imo
if by straightening your hair you mean with a flat iron, that's ok. but please dont relax your hair or chemically straighten it either before or after bleaching it, it's 100% bald city if you do that. also if your hair is too dark you might have to bleach it a couple of times before you get to a level 8 like >>160955

I've a few tips on how to prepare it. Depending on your henna type, jamila, rajhastani, etc, it'll have different dye release times. One way to make life easier for you in this aspect is to prepare a big batch of henna and then freeze it. Before you plan on dyeing just separate a portion and let it thaw in the refrigerator. The good thing about this is that you'll always have henna (almost) ready, once thawed it keeps for days in the refrigerator without demising and you wont have to experiment with dye release times. It's truly foolproof.
Also once you reach the depth of colour that you want, don't put more henna on top, just do the roots! A lot of people end up with very dark hair because they just keep adding more and more henna

Have you considered a low undercut like this? My friend has really similar hair to you and she said it worked great. It takes off a lot of the unmanageable volume and nobody can really tell you have one when your hair is down. I'd get it done professionally first, but after that you can buy some clippers and maintain it really easily. I do it for her now and it looks just like when she first got it done.

So! Currently at the top colour after years of dying my hair warm dark brown, decided to go for a super ashy dark brown, does anyone think this redken level 5 green based correction colour with 20v will take my current colour to that colour or should I bleach it lighter first?
