No. 142163

that's what I also heard, it is better to go to asian salons since asian hair can be different and needs a special kind of treatment, kinda like how it's better to go to a black hair salon if you're black/have curly hair.

I can see the value in doing it when your 4a and beyond. I used to relax my hair and I have 3c/3b hair and it was a nightmare for me. My hair fell out like crazy, it was heavy as fuck and i hated my hair. Natural is easier for me.

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.

No. 142487

I am ashamed to admit to myself that my hair isn't shitty, my products are. I used my room mates shampoo and conditioner that he recommended to me (he has long hair too) and it's so nice, to not have dry hair at all. It's waving again and my scalp isn't dry. I was using very cheap shampoo and conditioner of a no name brand. Tomorrow I'm stocking up on the same more expensive brand, multiple times. My hair is caucasian, thin and I don't have much of it but now I actually have volume … being a poorfag really ruined my hair all this time.
anyone got their fave Europe available shampoos/conditioners that work for thin, frizzy hair well? might experiment around.

Is there anything I can do to make my hair hold colour better?

I had it box dyed for years, then recently bleached to get the colour out, was blond for a while, now red but on some places it just won't hold. I'm pretty sure that from the middle it will all wash out in one wash and turn into a brown-ish blonde again. I plan to get it chopped collarbone length (now tit length) but is there anything else I can do besides wait to grow it out?

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.

The brassiness is the pigments in your hair, doesn't matter how you lift it, its gonna be orange unless you colour over it. It probably won't lift as much so you might not notice it as much, but the effects as literally the same.

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.

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?

No. 142883

I pin my hair back, and slick it back with conditioner as to not get any flyaways in the way whilst shaving the sides. Mistakes are inevitable, but honestly they’re not really noticeable. I only really shave it down to the skin during summer and let it grow during the colder months, and even then I just use a trimmer with a guard. My right side isn’t as symmetrical as my left, so I will probably need to go to a professional to help me sort out the symmetry a bit more.

No. 142884

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.

No. 142887

>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 meant like how to make sure that the shaved areas have approximately the same width, shape and placement on both sides of the head. The same surface area, distance from ears, etc. so the middle part doesn't look lopsided.

Is it better to grow out hair, wait until the 'healthy' section is grown to the desired length, and then chop off all the dead spindly ends?
I think I have this problem where I get my split ends chopped off yet the result is my hair never growing because my ends damage so easily that the healthy ends quickly go damaged after a mere weeks. I'm at the point where I just wanna keep on with the damaged ends so that eventually when the fully part of my hair gets to the length I want, I can just chop to there.

Am I making sense?

No. 142947

Anon-chans, I came back to having bangs again after seven years of not having them. Anyone has advice on how to take care of them?

No. 142954

It's always best to trim the split ends as soon as you can since the hair can split even more and travel up. That will fuck up your healthy hair, and it might be why you notice split ends a week after trimming. If you didn't trim high enough, the damage is still there but less noticeable and will keep coming back.

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.

You need one of two things (or both):

1. Conditioner
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.

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.

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)

I have never been interested in dying my hair until I saw this

No. 146834

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.

No. 146837

I've been using a silk pillowcase for a while (actually have 3 now) and I'd definitely say it helps with tangles/breakage since it's not as rough as cotton. If your hair is very fine/prone to breakage, you'll probably like it. You could also do a silk bonnet if you don't mind wearing something on your head at night, but I like the pillowcase more.

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

So I am prematurely going gray. Like the hair down to right under the chin is salt and pepper and the rest is just dark brown (I have long hair, down to a couple of inches under the middle of my back).
Went to a hair salon that is known for dyeing hair crazy colors and told one of the stylists that I wanted gray highlights to make the rest of my hair blend with the grays on top and she flat out told me that it would not work because they would have to bleach at least 3 times and that would burn/melt my hair. Is this true? Or are they just being lazy asses because I have long hair? I saw their IG and they have a lot of japanese women there with white/gray/pastel dyed hair that doesnt look "burned" or "melted". (btw I don't want to dye my hair black or dark in general , I love that is salt and pepper).

No. 146969

Sounds like it could be true to me. I don't know your exact color and quality of hair but three times could very well be true for a good result. Since your hair is so long the hair towards the ends is weaker and more damaged I'm guessing even if you take good care of it. I'd say your best bet to get what you're looking for would be to cut it considerably shorter. Even then bleaching is hell on your hair so it might be best to just rock what you have. Cutting it shorter could also surely fix part of the issue you have in the first place.

No. 146986

Lay off the purifying stuff, invest in some leave in conditioner that has no alcohol. Switch up your shampoo to a moisturising one but at first try if just changing the shampoo, and see if that does the trick. Leave in is vital for the ends though, you can also add it on dry hair.

No. 147300

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've been trying to get to my natural hair color (strawberry blonde) all summer with bleach and dye, but now i just have an uneven gross mess. i don't wanna bleach again and i don't have time to get a stylist to help me fix things. my hair is still very light though so i tried to use a gingerish box dye earlier because i figured it'd just make my hair a darker red, but now that its dry my hair is ash brown? idk how that happened because the dye i used was very orange. and apparently it wasn't dark enough to fix the unevenness so there's some parts that are darker and some that are light ash brown.
i'm really sad and frustrated. my only option at this point is to dye it dark brown, but idk if that's a good idea. i had dark brown hair when i was fake tanning and it was okay, but i'm extremely pale now and not sure if the dark hair would look strange? i don't have freckles, i have cool toned skin and my eyes are blue.

No. 147629

Dark box dye that isn’t multiple rounds of jet black will likely come out patchy again because (1) you have sections of hair that are more saturated with dye than others because of poor application (it happens) and (2) because of varying cuticle porosity in the strands from bleaching it. You need a stylist to remove the dye and lift your hair to the same level to get even coloring, even if it’s dark.

No. 147701

Depends what kind of shag you want. An authentic shag has the short layers on top, flowing out into gradually longer ones, otherwise you're really just looking at a layered long cut with a soft fringe. It wont really be a mullet if you keep the top layers a bit longer than a few inches, and I really think shags suit most people, other than myself. I had one and because I have a small face/head, it swamped me entirely, even with some of the weight being taken out. I say go for it but do your research for local hairdressers who can do it.

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?

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.

>>141823 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.

Hair in pic is 100% brown anon, no doubt. From what I've seen, dirty blonde hair usually has naturally high/lowlights. Anyway I don't think there's anything you can do to alter the color without upkeep and/or damage, so if you're not down for that just leave your natural hair be. The haircolor in pic is pretty and if it's healthy you're better off just leaving it as is. Unpopular opinion I guess but imo natural, healthy hair looks almost always better than altered "unique" hair does.

My hair was dirty blonde growing up so I'm used to calling it that. I hated it because it was so mousy. It finally darkened in my 20s but I always admired darker brown hair. Nothing against 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)

No. 148749

I guess it's because of the "blonde" label that people are after, but brown hair looks better than dirty blonde anyway, coming from someone with dirty blonde hair. There's just something unappealing about this color that's not quite blonde-blonde, not quite brown and just murky looking. I'm not a fan lol.

No. 148807

If your hair is in healthy condition, then it's a very beautiful ashy tone that will only be enhanced by style choices like a flattering haircut or the colours your choose to wear. But imo the bottom line is that healthy hair is beautiful hair

Wait, what? People don’t like this hair color? It’s unappealing? I’m super confused, I’ve always thought this was a super cute hair color (I have dark brown hair)

You should never use a boar bristle brush on wet hair. It looks like you have a lot of breakage in the second picture, and that is probably why.

No. 148832

In the nordic's it's seen as a very noncolor, boring mess even thought it is perfectly fine, in fact a few years ago when it first started popping up in a bigger way, I was jealous. I have pretty dark hair and most people assume I dyed it from that mousey greige/roadside brown.

Thank you, kind anon! I hadn't known that — I'd just grabbed one from Target when I hadn't seen any silicone ones.

No. 148869

Yeah, you should really only be using detangler brushes (with thick plastic "bristles" that are far apart, ideally bendy) when your hair is wet. The boar bristle brush is for dry hair, it basically takes the oils from your scalp and distributes them across the entire hair shaft.

No. 148955

Does anyone else here use bar shampoo? How is it?

I bought one for sustainability reasons (I've been experimenting with reducing my plastic waste and shit) and after a few washes, my hair got used to it and it's doing really great now, however, I find that there's a LOT of dry grey skin flakes on my brush now. You can't really see them in the actual hair (unlike when I was struggling with dandruff), but my brush is full of them.

Anyone else had this experience?

No. 148976

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've been boycotting Lush all my life lmao, their stuff is way too expensive here, like 2-3 times as expensive as in the US. I bought mine from a local seller and even consulted my hair type with her, but I guess it just wasn't a perfect match, which is a shame, cause it makes my hair look great other than the flakiness.

No. 148999

Yeah I have the grey fluffstuff on my brush/comb aswell. (Is it really skinflakes?) But I started washing my hair with CG-approved ingredients and using that shampoo bar at the same time so I thought it had something to do with the lack of really harsh cleansers in combination with hard water. But I'm not sure. Regardless my hair looks fine so it doesn't really bother me, you really can't see anything when you look at my hair.

those kind of shampoos are just kind of drying in my experience. or maybe it has rice/other kind of starch in it that keeps depositing on your scalp and giving the appearance of skin flaking, or maybe all the shitty fragrance in it gave you dandruff-like reaction. sorry, this post isn't really as helpful as i thought it would be, but it must be one of those three.

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?

No. 149424

I have the same problem and I had wispy bangs for a while and I got a lot of compliments on them! Tbh it depends on how bad your hair loss is but as long as you go for the thin and wispy look instead of the thick bangs look I think you’ll be fine. If you’re still unsure I’m sure you can ‘trial’ what they’d look like on your face by doing a faux bang look, there are a lot of youtube videos on that I think.

No. 149458

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

Two questions from a total noob in hairdye:
1. If you go darker than your natural hair color (so no bleaching) can you remove the color?

2. If you go darker, does it still damage your hair?

No. 150090

It probably depends on your natural colour. I had very very fair hair before I dyed it dark brown and it never really came out but I suppose if your hair was fairly close to the dye colour it would come out eventually?

No. 150102

this basically answers both your questions. for permanent dye. not really. dying your hair with permanent dye, even darker still actually requires some color removal, since the dye works by filling in your empty hair shaft. that's the difference between permanent and semi permanent dying.

No. 150108

Dry shampoo (use it BEFORE you get greasy, not after) and washing your bangs more regularly, like on their own not necessarily with the rest of your hair. As for the thinness, maybe try to blowdry them with a velcro roller to give them more volume.

Which one is better for the hair, blowdrying, or letting it dry naturally?

No. 150200

Heat is always worse, may look worse but in the long run it's better no matter the care regimen or oils with excessive heat.

No. 150201

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.

No. 150248

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.

Those who have used henna, what was your experience?
I've watched a few videos and it seems kind of like a pain in the ass. Like, you have to mix it with lemon juice and and tea and then let it sit for 4 hours and then leave it in your hair for 5 hours or something. And then it doesn't show up in your hair for like 48 hours. Is it worth it?

No. 151117

I don't know what type of henna you've been looking at but in my experience it's been way more straightforward. It's pretty similar to a typical dye where I just poured out the powder, mixed with water and applied. No waiting or anything. You are supposed to leave it in for several hours but I wear a hair cap and just leave mine all night so my hair gets as saturated as possible. When I wash it out in the morning it is a bit of a mess and looks like you've been murdered with all the red color in the shower, but it's immediately visible. I have no chill when it comes to my hair and wouldn't have bothered if it was more complicated than that.

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.
Fixes damage.
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

I was thinking of switching to the Surya Henna cream just for ease, does your hair feel nice afterwards? I am trying not to damage my hair when I color it. I love henna but I want more of a maroon red then the fox red I have and surya has a really pretty Marsala color. Would you recommend it?

No. 151260

It's worth a few more washes to see if it's a fluke or not. Most shampoos are chock-full with sillicones and what not, maybe it's just a certain ingredient in your shampoo that doesn't work for your hair and the lack thereoff in the showergel boosts your hair?

No. 151270

From what I have experienced you can do a cooler tone brown or red and a neutral tone black but you need to mix indigo and possibly amla. Places like hennacolorlab are reputable and have it pre mixed so you don't have to do the guess work. Generally just henna will give you only a warm red tone and you have to add other herbs to change the color. Henna builds though so a lot of people that henna for years their hair will go towards burgundy.

I did an at-home keratin treatment a few years ago and it transformed my coarse, dry, frizzy. wavy hair into smooth stickstraight hair, but it was gone after literally one wash.

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.
