Ok nonnies I have a silly question. I'm a natural blonde. I've been using minoxidil for the past year and and thank god it worked and my hair stopped falling out, but it turned my hair darker at the top, and I read that can indeed happen. I wanted to know if my hair still looks natural or does it look bleached bc of the darker roots kek
File: 1656625641079.png (466.8 KB, 700x525, 5fac5e5998669500182b583a.png)
I've tried that to no avail. My hair looks like picrel right after I wash it, just a bit less curly perhaps. As it gets oilier over the next few days it tames down but still looks bad. I really want to try curtain bangs but it will never look decent with my hair.>>272811>>272788
Thanks nonas! I will try both.
I divide my hair in half, pour about a tablespoon into my hand and use that amount for either side (so 2 tablespoons). I have waist length hair though, if your hair is shorter use a bit less. I start with putting it in my ends which soak the oil up pretty much immediately, then I re-apply it to the tips and length of my hair, up until the part of my hair that's already greasy. I don't soak it in oil, just put enough in it so it feels as greasy as my scalp and let it sit in one of those claw clips for a while. When you take it out it should feel like your whole hair is greasy (like natural grease). I've also heard coconut oil 'sticks' way more onto your hair which might be part of your problem, I've only ever used olive oil and it works like a charm! I don't even shampoo my ends that much, I double shampoo my scalp and the second time put some in my ends and scrunch it a bit, it's never looked gross or greasy for me (though parts of my hair are slightly bleached, it's not too dry just slightly damaged but I think that could have a lot to do with the absorption of the oil). I have naturally thin/straight hair btw, I don't know what this would do for other hair types but I'm sure there's some info out there. Hope this helps!
I know right! Best discovery of the year for me haha>>273683
No problem! The ones for cooking are actually better for your hair because it doesn't have unnecessary additives like perfume or whatever, it's the closest to natural so no worries! Plus it's way cheaper because you're buying in bulk, well, hair care wise anyway kek.
you have to read the label. you can use a tool like curlsbot or inci decoder that explain each ingredient to you. to elaborate on what >>273713
said, surfactants are ingredients like>Sodium laureth sulfate, Sodium lauryl sulfate, ammonium lauryl sulfate, ammonium laureth sulfate, etc
they're usually the first ingredient(s) on the list.
silicones have a million different names like>dimethicone, cyclomethicone, dimethiconol, stearyl dimethicone, cyclopentasiloxane etc etc
oils are oils (duh) and butters like shea butter, coconut oil, Argan oil etc
polyquats are usually listed as lolyquaternium-7 and polyquaternium-10 afaik

Kek accidentally posted in the old thread. Has anyone here gotten layers, maybe a shag or a wolf cut with fine or thin hair? My hair is virgin medium brown, and I really don't want bangs unless they're pretty long and curtain-y, I have a weird long and narrow forehead, very high and wide cheekbones.
My hair atm is such a dry, wavy, scraggly one length mess.

I'm lost with my shitty hair. It's super thin and super oily, my hairline is super high so my forehead is huge but there isn't enough hair for bangs, not even curtain bangs because I have these big bald gaps on the sides? This seems to look like male pattern baldness but I'm a woman. I think it has gotten a bit worse as I got older and also since using products that make my hair healthier but appearing thinner, because when it was dry it looked fuller as well but it didn't feel very healthy or soft. What the fuck do I do? I can't cover my huge forehead and my hair is so damn thin, do I just give up and grow my bangs out anyway and just accept my 10head and thin hair? I already take iron supplements but I'm pretty sure it's always been like this or similar to this anyway..
I have the same and there's a few things you can try. Right now, I'm trying the rosemary oil+scalp massage combo, which supposedly stimulates the hair follicles similar to Rogain. For a more permanent solution, there's also hairline microblading, which is less expensive than a full hair transplant, but supposedly lasts around 2 years. And there's always products designed to fill in the hairline, like Mamonde's hair shadow.
I definitely agree that the bangs you have now are highlighting it, but most people probably won't notice just looking at you. It's not in style nowadays but I find that a side part and long, swoopy bangs is the way to go to hide my own temples.

Bring a pic! And just find a good hairdresser, maybe a woman that doesn't seem old-fashioned/bitchy lmao
I had pixies on and off for years, indistinguishable from a "male" haircut, and they didn't really fight me over it especially when I brought a pic
Yes exactly, some older women can be great of course but there's a Type that will be annoying about your hair
I think living in a large European city might've helped too
Yeah, I've bleached my hair a few times at home, so I know I won't get to blonde in one go. I might be chickening out, because I just remembered how shit my hair felt when I finally did get it to blonde.
But I want it so much, life is unfair
I don’t think what you’re feeling is uncommon anon. Hair is important to how others perceive us, especially as women. We often spend so much time conditioning, doing leave in treatments, etc., sometimes it almost feels like a waste to cut it at all. I would suggest to look at it another way, don’t think of yourself as losing
hair, think that you’re making your hair healthier
by trimming it and taking care of it. View it like a dental cleaning. Hair always looks its best when it’s healthy!

I've found the best hair style on me is something like this, my hair looks pretty much exactly like this now, and I feel like it's boring
Curtain bangs make my face look longer, my bf even told me I look best with hair pulled away from my face
Medium length hair is such a boring length but looks most flattering since long straight hair drags my face down
I'm thinking about at least adding highlights to make it look cooler, and always curling it

I have fine limp hair just like Kiki, and it looks so much better when it's a little damaged by bleach/heat. Hairstyles and curls hold way better, I get more volume and it looks thicker. It took me years to figure this out because the number 1 advice is always to keep your hair healthy and shiny.

I had natural ringlets in youth, but my mother straightened it or put products in it to keep it relatively so. When I turned 11, I started dying it black. It automatically lost shape to fried waves. I've been growing out my natural hair for 3 years now in my 20s. I don't use product and take boiling hot showers. My natural hair is incredibly frizzy but relatively straight/wavy. I'm not sure if it's possible to retain my natural curls or if the changed when I hit puberty. The texture of my hair is thinner and doesn't react to humidity the way it once did. I'm Scottish and my hair is about 1C/2B now. It used to look like pic rel.
nta but important sidenote: Do NOT use salt sprays or other similar products on bleached or otherwise brittle hair. Bleached hair snaps from products like that very easily, especially at the top. Bleached hair is often already brittle and weak and salt sprays dry it out even more. I lost a lot of hair when I used salt spray on bleached hair myself. Volumising sprays with heat protection (with barely any hold) are better at adding texture to weak hair.
Sprays like this are very good for giving healthy hair texture which I think you meant but felt important to mention in case some nonnie

Generally blues turn really green on blonde hair. If you don't mind it to stay forever as it's impossible to get out of hair, you might be able to do it with Elumen Bl@all.. That is the only blue I know of that needs no toning, but it's seriously impossible to get out.
With other blue dyes you should tone it first to as neutral as possible. You can use a permanent toner or a silver direct dye or just some purple/pink direct dye mixed with conditioner. Toning is easy to do yourself so don't be afraid of toning, unless you want green like this picture.
Also keep in mind that a non-greenish bright blue colour requires a very very light base. I suggest finding before and after photos of people using the same dye on a similar base to see what it will look like. Since your hair isn't platinum it might be better to go for a dark blue colour.

Just part it anywhere except straight center nonnie
. Even a slight part 1cm on the side is enough, and you can choose which eye you want covered up a bit more with hair. Don't go too close to your temples because it looks dated, imo.

I made my hair too burgundy (picrel not mine) after putting copper hair dye over ash brown (but it was closer to gray brown than I wanted) and I was wondering if anyone knows a quick way to make it a neutral brown? I already used the red to cancel the ash and I know dye only covers dye.
Also my hair is curly, hence why I don't like the red. I look like the clown from the Simpsons

You know how there's always these pictures of dramatic bad bleach job "rescues" and it goes from looking a frizzy mess to super glossy, bouncy and smooth?
What the fuck are they using to get that glossy, bouncy smooth look?
Doesn't seem to matter what the fuck I do, protein treatment, deep condition, leaving in oils, etc, my hair looks frizzy and split end like. Even when I cut it all off and grew it out natural then didn't style it for all of COVID so no product or heat damage, it had that frizziness.
I assume they use a gloss treatment for the glossy part but what the actual fuck keeps it so perfectly smooth looking?!!
File: 1659132467472.jpg (129.44 KB, 960x720, Curly-Girl-Method-Transformati…)
Your pic rel seems to have naturally straight hair. The bouncy, silky look is a combination of pro products, blowout/straightener and her natural texture. Maybe you have wavy or curly hair. Have you ever tried following the curly girl method?
The shampoo I use is fine, it's just when I skip shampoo that I break out.
Most of my other acne is almost definitely hormonal/diet related, but my skin products are also as safe as possible for both regular acne and fungal acne.
Pastel warm shades wash out easiest. Crazy Color dyes fade very fast if you mix with conditioner. Just don't do anything too bright and you'll be fine. Pastel pink is the easiest to make blonde again.
Also you generally dont need proper bleach to fade direct dyes since bleach powder with just shampoo does a lot. Dries hair out but doesn't damage it the same way.

In my country almost everyone has this hair colour me and all my family included kek. 5 would be noticeably darker. Definitely 6. If you turn blonde in the sun you could be a 7, the blue light makes it look so ashy that it's hard to tell what undertone your hair has.

Is it feasible to have long hair but with the ear area cut short? I like my ears to show like in picrel but I don't want to just tuck the hair. The rest of the hair would be really choppy.

look up shag haircut also, might be closer to what you're looking for. not a hairdresser but mullet always sounds like the short to long ratio is super obvious. shag is more sublte/blended
A dark brownish/black similar to >>275603
looks more natural on people with lighter hair/cooler tones imo. Deeper blacks with blue or silvery undertones tend to look a bit more unnatural or sorta goth-y.
AYRT, I always go for shag haircuts because my hair is very fine and it gives great texture, but what I'm asking is, will it look retarded to cut the hair above the ear to like 1/2" so the ears are always showing, with a long
shag. Thank you for the reply!! I think I'm just gonna go for it. My hairdresser said no but I'm going to force her kek. I have neck-length layered hair, like a grown out pixie cut with the "above ear hairs" cut short, I'm just gonna keep it that way as I grow the length out. I think the shagginess will help it not look like a literal notch of hair awkwardly cut out. I have no idea if I'm making any sense kek but ty for the additional inspo

NTA but I also use this one every few weeks and it's pretty nice. While it doesn't lather much, it cleans well without being too drying. I also like picrel, which can be used more frequently IMHO.
If you used permanent hair colour you could try something like colour b4 colour remover. It may dry your hair out a little, but it's not as bad as bleach.>>279829
Seek out a brown-black hair dye, not just pure black. Anon in a previous thread recommened me garnier olia 3.0 soft black and it produced great results. Fades to a dark brown and doesn't make the hair look synthetic.>>279914
Castor oil is said to help with promoting hair growth.
Rosemary oil like infused oil you make at home? It stimulates blood flow which can help encourage the follicles along with a gentle scalp massage. It was studied and found to be nearly as effective as 2% minoxidil. So there’s at least one actual study on it? https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/25842469/#:~:text=Rosmarinus%20officinalis%20L.%20is%20a,its%20effects%20with%20minoxidil%202%25
The carnosic acid in rosemary that you’re infusing in helps promote healing to damage follicles or something like that. I make rosemary water with a few drops of peppermint and spray it in.
I've seen a study it has similar effects to minoxidil as >>281291
linked, so not tons of research but there is some hope >>281291
thank you I am going to give it a try, the rosemary and peppermint water sounds good
do you use it every single day?

Thanks nonna's, it's what I guessed but oh well. I have heard that castor oil enhances hair growth, I guess it doesn't hurt to try, rosemary oil got rid of my dandruff for good so I have some faith in it. Can't find that tonic in my country sadly, but I don't have thinning hair just genetically fine so I'm not sure what it would do.
I am SICK of hairdressers saying they can cut/style curly hair only to show up and they be visibly overwhelmed by the curls I, IN DETAIL, told them about via email/phone. Just say you don't have experience with curls!!
I had one hairdresser when I was younger ask me to straighten my hair, she'd cut it dry, mistaking heat damage for dead hair and cutting way too much off. Now as an adult my options are to travel far (in the UK there are like 10 salons that specialise in curly hair) to get an overpriced cut OR do it myself. I have a consultation with a local non curly salon, highly recommended and hopefully they can cut my hair though I really don't trust it unless they advertise as such. I'm biracial, so I have a lot of texture which throws hairdressers off. I'm just frustrated I guess. OH and curly specialists are way more expensive, plus the added cost of going out of town or being on a 4 month wait list FFS.

Absolutely. To be honest though, I think a lot of people don't pull it off. If your bone structure isn't somewhat soft; if it's angular/severe I think it looks weird. Think Courtney Cox in Scream 2.

I've used a few as I had a similar reaction to using head&shoulders:
Ultimately I used a CBD-extract oil made for sensitive skin (KIEHLS CBD OIL) that gave me the best results and thankfully after one bottle I was then able to use these two in a blend to help.

I would also do a lazy heat treatment so load up my scalp in the oil, wrap it in clingwrap, put a shower cap over and then use a heat pack on top of my head while I chilled online
Synthetic wigs with bangs and a fake scalp are going to be the cheapest and easiest to look natural (though IMO, cheap synthetic will always look wiggy). You can soak the wig in fabric softener to lessen the plastic shine.
Human hair wigs with HD or invisible lace are going to look the most realistic, that is if you go through the trouble of plucking and cutting baby hairs (provided the wig is not pre plucked), bleaching the knots (which are the tiny little black dots you see on the lace which is where the bundle of hair is connected to the wig) (again, if the wig is not pre bleached), and gluing it to your hairline (though if the wig has bangs you are more likely to get away with not gluing it down). If you really want a natural looking wig with human hair I recommend luvme hair, hairvivi, and ashimaryhair. Human hair wigs are going to be more expensive than synthetic, and will typically run you about 150 USD and up. I don't have much experience with synthetic, all I can guess is that the higher you pay for synthetic, or even getting a synthetic/human hair blend, it will look more realistic. People will say to never pay more than 70 USD for synthetic wigs, so keep that in mind when shopping.

I like doing Dutch braids as they make my hair look fuller
This only really works for long hair but braid your hair in two braids starting with the back section so the front 'overlaps' on your face a little bit more, then pull the braids through that front section of your braid. You'll have nice double braids and most of the weight will be on top of your head instead of just hanging. Also you can't go wrong with milkmaid style braids like >>286273
Also braiding the front sections of your hair and putting it into a top-knot along with the rest of your hair is very cute imo (though depending on your style it can look kind of animu).

Question–is there even really a short hair cut that looks cute on very fine, thin, straightish hair? I finally realized what's up with my hair–it has absolutely 0 texture. And, I realized that all the short hair cuts I have fawned after through my life were on textured or much thicker hair. I'm not really sure what to do because my hair looks so basic, so accountant that it's unbearable.
File: 1662844707455.png (38.88 KB, 940x227, dgdg.png)
Basically yes, and check the ingredient list. Look for unrefined, cold pressed etc. It will vary depending on the specific oil. When people say they use rosemary oil for thinning hair or whatever, they mean the essential oil. But it needs to be diluted in a carrier oil - it's way too concentrated as is and it can burn your scalp. This is a great article specifically for hair loss http://science-yhairblog.blogspot.com/2017/02/scientifically-tested-over-counter.html?m=1
As for where to buy, check health food stores, normal grocery stores, drugstores, pharmacies and compare prices. I think iHerb also carries high grade essential and beauty oils, personally I never had an issue with them.
Thank you so much nonnie
. So I need to buy an essential rosemary oil, ideally cold pressed and mix it with something like jojoba oil? I'm going to try.

As a PSA for curly haired nonnies I want to share my favorite brand of hair gel. It’s curly girl approved (no silicones that build up in your hair, alcohols that dry it out, etc), holds well, and costs like $3. I love the stuff. Though keep in mind that my curls have a big diameter. I recommended the brand to a friend with tight curls and he said it held too well, so that it gave him a “ramen hair” look that he didn’t like.

I have 2A hair (Asian-type). I'm trying to grow it long this time (always had it short) but it noticeably falling off more. Is it normal for longer hair to shed more? Also some note said my hair is growing slowly (my nails and body hair grow normally). It was like picrel 10 months ago and it's just reached shoulder length now.
Thanks a lot nonnas.
Guess I do need a trim after all. I thought long hair would be more convenient in terms of I don't need to get frequent haircuts. I'll try to keep growing it out and while finding a suitable hair tonic. I don't put things on my hair since it gets oily easily.
My hair generally grows 1/4" per month but I read that Asian hair grows the quickest at up to 1-2 inches per month: "On average Asian hair grows between 1 and 2 inches per month. Asian hair grows 10% faster than caucasian hair and nearly as much as 30% quick than African American hair." Source: https://hairday101.com/how-fast-does-asian-hair-grow/
If I got that pixie cut 10 months ago (caucasian) I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be at shoulder length by now tbh.

This picture has been floating around for a while but has anyone actually tried this thing? Can it actually put little hearts in your hair or is it just marketing?

I really want to dye my hair a muted, dark blue shade but I know it's a bad idea. I'd have to pay someone to bleach my hair to shit, make sure it is as blonde and cool toned as possible so that the dye doesn't turn green and then I'd be stuck with blue hair until I cut it all off. I miss being a teen and not giving a shit about any of this and impulsively dying my hair.
I think your best bet is a warm colour, maybe pink? It's easy for brights to clash with warm browns so have you considered something like >>292771
? It's a very cool look I think and doesn't look that teenagerish

I really like acid green and orange, but any color can work imo.

does anyone have a dupe for Oribe's detangler? i've been searching and can't find anything specific other than some shitty articles.
the only specific product i've seen that's decent overall for super cheap is Garnier Hair Care Fructis Pure Clean Detangler + Air Dry - but i've never tried it
for reference i'm light brunette to bleached (platinum-ish) blonde, really love Oribe but just can't do the price tag most of the time

This is absolutely not what you're looking for, but since I love it so much, it is 6$, smells divine, and has light, nice ingredients.

thank you anon, would you say it's moisturizing/hydrating enough for bleached hair? Oribe's smells really good too so I might give this one a try, since it's cheap and i'd rather avoid Garnier
side note, I would always use Suave Kids Apple when I was young and I remember being obsessed with the smell, been tempted to order a bottle for shits and giggles but the reviews are mixed for adults (or if they just changed the formula/ingredients)
tbhhh I think they might have changed the formulation on the pipette as well.
I think it still is very moisturizing; people do say that it's kind of like conditioner in a bottle because the spray is almost nonexistent, so you're stuck dispensing it onto your hands. a little does seem to go far, though.

Nonnies who have suffered weird hair loss in the past–what did you find out was causing it?
I do intend to ask for labs to be done from my doctor in a few days and unfortunately it might still be a while until I am able to go see a hormone specialist.

I've had good results doing diluted vinegar washes for my hair but can't quite get it as shiny as I'd like.
What works for other people here?
I spent a good year trying to find out why my hair kept falling off in chunks at the top of my head. I did alot of tests and after all that the cause ends up being stress and depression. I've changed jobs and gotten treatment and my hair is growing back. Ppl notice it now and ask me what products I'm using that fixed it so it must be a visible difference.
I hope you find out what's causing yours soon so you can treat it if it's possible.

Looks like slice foils with a light beige blonde toner

I finally just accepted that I have to wash my hair every day. Co-wash (washing w conditioner) doesn't do shit for me UNLESS it's picrel, which has sulfates, so almost defeats the purpose of not using shampoo every day. I just try to condition my ends with leave-in treatments (It's a 10) and dry oils.

You could do a online color analysis that helps to identify which undertones suit your skin best.
Also your natural hair & skin tone have low contrast so a half head of foils can help to create depth and increase contrast
Honestly I've given up mostly and do the following:
Sleep with it in a messy, loose bun on top of my head, and just wear side braids through the day usually. Weirdly enough, the braids always look good and are very easy to make look thicker. When undone, it leaves the shiniest waves. Ponytails look terrible in comparison. However, regardless of what I do (hats aside) I just use dry shampoo on the top of my head because there's really nothing I can do to help it otherwise.
IDK. I just ignored braids for years and was pleasantly surprised by how they look in my hair.

I want to cut my hair short like picrel. How do I get this look without looking like a mom?

Back! Yeah, I'm a soft autumn as far as I know. Here's a sample of what I'm talking about. I have no idea why, but my hair looks so rich in the sun with all sorts of tones, but in a lot of lighting it looks so…swampy on me? Am I imagining things? I'm still not sure about highlights.

Can I get some help? I know nothing about hair, always hated mine so never cared, but I want to "improve" myself and hair is a big part of that process. My hair colour is like picrel, I would love to have a hint of another colour in it, like red, rose, maybe a little bit brighter, I don't know. What are things I could use that aren't permanent for starters and wash out over time. I never dyed or bleached my hair, I just need something different, something I can start with.
no bleaching for me, that would be something to be done by a professional. I might give Elumen Play a try, they have some nice colours.>>296540
I get what you are saying and I agree with you, but every salon around me seems to be unable to work with any hair structure that isn't 100% straight and what they're providing isn't worth the price it comes with.
I think you should try temporary products like the Hair Tonesfrom Make-up Revolution (or their Rainbow Drops, which can be added directly to your usual conditioner and you can choose the intensity you want) or a pigmented conditioner.
Also I entirely agree with you about salons being unable to work with anything other than straight hair, but learning to cut and style your own hair makes a world of difference.

1. Washing them along with my face in the morning. Used the la Roche posey blue bottle on both my face and bangs together. Sounds messy but it's quick and not drying at all (no I did not condition them). It'll feel awkward at first but it's kinda refreshing. Make sure to work a bit of the face wash into the root area and rinse well.
2. Towel drying my face and bangs well then using a cylinder shaped hot air brush to dry them into a nice shape. It won't make your banks super old school round like some people think. The bigger the cylinder especially, it'll just give them a bit of body.
This doesn't take more than 5 minutes for me and bangs look fresh every day

>>296605>treating your bangs as part of your face and not of your hair
legit never thought about it like that
It seems pretty unlikely it would make your hair oilier, but maybe that brand isn't good for your hair and is making it feel gross? There's only one brand out of all the different dry shampoos I've tried that actually keeps my hair oil free AND feeling decent (Batiste).
Also make sure you put it on before your hair gets oily, not after.
You'll get awful looking roots after like 2 weeks.
When you go lighter, you can have 1 or 2 cm of dark roots and still look somewhat fine. but lighter roots on black hair will make you look like you're balding with just a few millimeters (and I have darker hair than you). Black hair will give you a lot more trouble than just damage and fetishization (which will happen even if you're not alt, black hair is as much of a fetish as blondes now)
if you go for semi-permanent dye, you can say goodbye to your white shirt collars. and your bangs will stain your forehead when it gets too hot outside too. I haven't tried demi-permanent since middle school, but it might be a smarter choice.
I miss my black hair so bad sometimes but I really don't miss the nightmare maintenance (and the even worse nightmare that was transitioning back into natural hair)
tl;dr : yes, it's a bad idea

I'm wanting to get some color tint shampoo and conditioner, can any nonnas recommend a brand they like? I get choice paralysis like a mf. I have medium blonde hair that lightens nicely with sunlight, it's medium thickness and wavy. I'd like to go with a strawberry tone. Thank you in advance for your recommendations.
Are you jealous or something? I've seen freshly washed curly hair that looked somewhat similar.
My hair looks much more dirty a day after shampooing and it's straight and very thin.
