the thread pic is cute but I wish it wasn't cropped
Yes! I had one on my cheek that I swear just popped up one day, no rhyme or reason. I can't comprehend how I could have just ignored that long-ass hair when it was smack dab in the middle of my cheek.

No. 272247

Yeah I have one right below my bellybutton kek. I think I've had it since I was a teenager? I just wait until it gets long enough and then I just pull it out with my fingers, but then it always grows back. Honestly at this point I'd be kind of disappointed if it disappeared forever.

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

No. 272776

Is there a procedure for chemically un-frizzing your hair? I hate my hair texture but I don't want to do something like Japanese straightening because I want to keep my waves/curls. I just want them to be smooth.

do you use any leave in product? Maybe try using a spray bottle, adding a quart of conditioner (of any kind, just the norm one you use as part of your wash routine) and add warm water, apply to hair in the morning and it should help with frizz. tbh its hard advising not knowing your hair type.

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.

No. 273669

Sorry to bump but this has seriously changed my life. I had pretty frizzy hair with super thin ends but ever since I started putting extra virgin olive oil in it before washing it's shinier, I barely have frizz anymore and it somehow even feels thicker! I put it in an hour or longer if I have the time before I wash it, then I wash it thoroughly, double shampoo and condition after. I smell like a fucking salad for a bit but after washing it's never noticeable (I always ask my mom to smell my hair, she's very honest kek and she doesn't smell anything weird). It costs barely any money either and we always have it at home for regular cooking. I wash my hair twice a week and my hair has benefitted from it so much, I hate having products in my hair so this is perfect, it's so much prettier and healthier now. Gives leave in conditioner a run for it's money.

No. 273676

how much do you use? I've previously tried this with coconut oil but would either end up with very oily hair or terrible dry hair from overwashing to get rid of it.

No. 273678

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!

No. 273681

Girl it’s crazy how olive oil, plain olive oil isn’t mentioned as much as it should be. I’m curly and my hair loves that stuff, i tried so many routines and olive oil alone really makes my hair sleek and healthy.

I know right! Best discovery of the year for me haha

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.

I’m EU fag and I have no idea what is clarifying shampoo, does anyone know? Or describe what it is so I can look for it in supermarkets

No. 273713

basically, you want a shampoo that has surfactants and no silicones, polyquats, or oils. most basic drugstore shampoos fit the bill - a clarifying shampoo just has to clean your hair and scalp without gunking them up again. if you find those are too harsh, either use them less frequently and/or right after deep-conditioning, or try one with gentler surfactants. unfortunately i don't think i can explain surfactants to you in a meaningful way, but they're not too hard to recognize.

No. 273715

I don't know if it's the same in your country but I'm in the EU as well and you can find clarifying shampoos here under the literal English term "clarifying shampoo" or sometimes called (roughly translated) something like "purifying shampoo". They can be a bit hard to find though, idk if they sell them at supermarkets, not where I am anyway. Yves Rocher has a clarifying shampoo, that store is in a lot of EU countries I believe.

No. 273740

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

This is super helpful, thanks anons. I applied it mostly to my ends last night before showering and left it in for about 15 minutes. My hair is fine/curly and prone to an oily scalp/dry ends so I didn’t use it on my scalp, rather applied to my ends and combed throughout my length a bit. I gotta say, my hair definitely feels a lot softer and even a bit thicker. I’ve always had terrible luck with most “natural” treatments so this was a nice surprise. Definitely will use it again. No weird smell after shampoo and conditioning either.

I lost a lot of hair (mostly on my crown and part and some on my sides) and the hairs aren't tapered but I did get my hair cut a week ago (so I can't really tell if it's regrowth) but I heard regrowth is supposed to appear all around your head? The most noticeable hairs that stick up are on my crown and part. I use satin pillow cases so I really don't know what's going on. I hope it's regrowth but I don't want to get my hopes up.

Anyone ever got electrolysis/laser hair removal? I want to get basically a brazilian, legs, and armpits done. I guess I'd prioritize the brazilian first though cause shaving that area is hell for me. Idk if I even want a full brazilian I just know I'm very hairy down there and it makes me feel so insecure. I literally cannot shave that area and waxing is rather costly so most of the time it's just bush.

Is it painful at all getting the procedure done? Do you think it's worth the cost?

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..

No. 274875

Grow out the bangs, shoulder-length medium chestnut brown would be nice. The bangs you have are just highlighting the thin temples. You can hide those if your bangs grow out and you get to tuck them behind your ear, or they hang out parallel with the rest of your hair

No. 274877

Thank you. I don't know about the short length though because I thought short hair makes your face look wider? I have a very wide square jaw as well. And are there any tricks to make my huge forehead less obvious or do I just have to live with it?

No. 274894

your hair actually looks like it's of decent quantity/thickness and looks pretty, it's just that your temples are thin. do your glasses pull out your hair a lot on your temples? not trying to insult you or anything but i see some women who have very very slight hormonal hair loss present with slightly thinning temples. you could try some anti-androgenic supplements for that and see if they help. like it could be subclinical, or maybe it's just genetic for you to have thinner temples, which is normal too.

No. 274895

I know this doesn't help you but I have this curse too and it's nice to know I'm not alone. I find laying it down with a bit of hairspray helps it look less like baldness… But of course does not solve the issue. My hair has always been like this too I think it's just genetic.

No. 274982

I promise I'm not a fakeboi, but if I want a short haircut that's androgynous/not a pixie cut what should I ask for? I don't want to go to a barber because I have much finer hair than most men and I don't want some man botching me on purpose or giving me shit for cutting my hair, but where I live I'm just as likely to end up with an overly twee pixie or some kind of feathered, matronly disaster if I go to a female stylist.

No. 274985

Could you maybe bring a little more hair from the left to the front? I also have a similar hairline and I find that is kind of helps, although tbh i don't have the same hair texture as you at all. Your hair really isn't that thin imo. There are also powders and products you can use to make your hair looks thicker. As for your five-head, unless you want to get your hairline lowered, there isn't much you can do about it.

No. 275302

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.

I wish I realized sooner this makes an actual difference. I went to hairdressers my mom recommended all my teens and early 20's and often returned unsatisfied, they were usually staffed by older women. Jumped from salon to salon for a long time. Randomly went to some salon that turned out to mostly staff young women, have been getting my hair cut my women who seem to be around my age (20s) and haven't had an unsatisfying cut since. Not to be ageist, I think it's probably just that younger hairdressers are more up to date with current techniques and styles because they graduated more recently?

Does anyone have advice on hair attachment? I mean, being attached to it so much that you don't want to cut it. I want to cut my hair on my birthday in a few days (to get the split ends of, plus to let go of the negative things and developments that have happened since my last birthday). It is just 3-4 cm but I have not been looking forward to it even though for me it has ritualistic purposes. How do I stop being so attached to my long hair? Call me retarded but I feel like I'm cutting a part of myself of and it's not even for vanity reasons. My hair reaches just above my hip bones so it will still be long if I trim it, I'm not getting a new style either and it won't be drastic so I don't know where this fear comes from. Sorry for the hair sperg but this attachment is so annoying, I straight up have to mentally prepare myself to get my ends trimmed.

No. 275578

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!

Curtain bangs make my face look longer, my bf even told me I look best with hair pulled away from my face

My hair is actually very thin and completely flat but it just looks different on that picture, it looks much worse typically. I actually just found out about rosemary oil as well and plan on trying that when I can order it, but I'm still lost about my forehead? Side bangs or "curtain bangs" still show off my huge forehead too much, it's still very obvious that my hairline is super high. So what is worse, the bald temples and having huge bald gaps on the sides and in the middle when having straight bangs, or my really high hairline and huge forehead being more obvious when I have no bangs or side bangs? :/ when I asked a hairdresser for bangs she just cut 2 small sections on the sides which was cute but didn't do anything for my forehead at all and didn't look like bangs.. she also explained I just don't have enough hair for bangs but I'm frustrated about my forehead every time I look in the mirror or look at a selfie. Typing this out I feel like it just is what it is and I need to let go of trying to hide my shitty hairline/forehead but it's upsetting..

Just out of curiosity, what hairstyle do you think would look best for someone with pretty thick, straight hair? I also have a forehead on the smaller side and a rounder face (not prominent cheekbones at all) although I wouldn’t say that proportionally my head is big to my body. I just ask because usually I just grow my hair long and that’s it, but I’m curious if there’s another style/length that might suit me more. I’m afraid to ask my hairdresser since last time I did he recommended I get a perm lol.

I don't know if it suits your style but PrettyShepherd always makes nice hair tutorials imo. A lot are pretty niche but this one (crown braid) is pretty wearable.

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.

It’s normal for hair to go through changes like that in your youth. Some born with curly hair that goes straight. Or straight to curly. Puberty can change it. It even changes when you get much much older and start to grey.

Any nonnas have tips for growing out a mullet/shag without losing my mind?

No. 276488

Don't know how long your hair is but it's summer, you can pin your bangs away and wear your hair in a bun or wear a sunhat. Also if your bangs are in that awkward phase, curling them helps with making them shorter and fuller. With headbands you can fully hide them. Good luck growing it out nonna!

No. 276501

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 didn't know.

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.

nonas do any of you have advice on how do deal with extremely thin hair (like, bald patches thin) and a double crown that accentuates it? should i just start minox? i'm 18 so i wanted to avoid it because i'll be stuck on it for the rest of my life, but nothing else has worked. is there a particular style i could try that might obscure the bald areas? the worst is at the back of my head, like at the end of my parting.

How should I wear my hair if one of my eyes is bigger than the other?

No. 276824

1) nearly everyone has one eye bigger than the other, I can assure you it’s not as noticeable as you think 2) if it really bothers you that much, opt for some sort of asymmetrical style, or something with a choppy or tousled look. It will draw attention away from your facial asymmetry and make the whole look more cohesive. I would avoid tightly cropped hairstyles, or anything super sleek and pulled back. Also getting super straight blunt bangs is not a great idea as it provides a straight line on your face for your eyes to be compared to.

Side part and some layers around your face should work, I think.

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 have had long hair all of my adult and teen years and I really like the idea of cutting my hair into a short bob but I'm scared I'll regret it because I have a chubby body, I think it would face my round face but I'm scared about the body part and it's the main reason I've had long hair most of my life but when I tried shorter hair in the mirror or on apps I thik it makes me look younger but I'm unsure how it would really look like.
My long hair sometimes weights on my head so much I get headaches and my middlepart has been growing wider by the years so that's another reason to cut it.
I also can't style it for shit because it's so fine and easy to tangle on top of damage from dying and heat.
I talked about it with the guy I'm currently interested in, at first he was against it but when I showed him how it would look he became as confused as me, mom is against it, I have no one to give me a real answer.
Should I just go for it and get a cute bob?

No. 279177

You’re giving a lot more reasons to cut it so I’d say just go for it anon. It will always grow out again if you don’t like it. Even if you do a fairly short bob, you can grow it out to medium length again in about a year. I wouldn’t worry what the people around you think, they don’t have to wash/style your hair all the time. They’ll get used to it.

No. 279191

I'm confused, what's the connection between long hair and your chubby body? Long hair doesn't cover/hide your body, is it about an illusion of comfort? Anyway hair grows back, if you don't like it, it'll grow back. You should definitely cut at least SOME of it to prevent headaches.

No. 279195

I get a bit headachey from long hair too and I cannot emphasize enough how light and freeing a bob felt. Soooo pleasant, and it felt way healthier. That said, I got bored with it and am growing it out again. It only took about a year to start looking decently long again, so it really wasn't a big deal either way and not worth fretting over. If you do it and don't like it, it's not the end of the world but at least you'll get a few months with a lighter head and a big improvement on any damage.

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.

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 can answer your question but would need to see the dye you used. There are 2 types of dye and the ones in stores tend to have stronger developer than necessary to penetrate gray hair since its one size fits all. Due to this the hair shaft is opened more than necessary to just deposit tone and the warmth of the scalp develops it even faster, and depending on if you dyed your hair before, what color it is, what color you're using, you may get strange results.

I'm not a hairdresser or anything but the only thing I can think of is that your hair has a lot of very pigmented, golden undertones to it? Since yellow is opposite to blue in the color wheel, maybe your hair is just too pigmented to take in the black. The only thing that I can think of that would help is to bleach it a bit to get rid of the pigment. You could use a toner beforehand but I feel like that would just fade as well. But either way you sound like you have very beautiful hair.

Anons–what's your take with someone with naturally tanned skin that's close to the depth of their hair and eyes?

For example my hairdresser said some parts of my natural hair is bluish/olive/cool-toned. Most of the time it looks extremely drab and even swampish in certain lighting, but beautiful in the sun. My skin is very warm, muted, with gold undertones and maybe a slight hint of red.

I look kind of rustic and, idk, very paradoxically bland and I'm not really sure what to do.

I asked my hairdresser what she'd do if she was me and she said something about peach tones, which I still find hard to believe.

can anyone recommend some oils I can use for my scalp? I want to start doing oil massages regularly because I'm fed up with my dry flaky scalp, and don't want to be dependent on shit like head&shoulders (Which is what i think fucked up my scalp this badly in the first place).

I was just thinking about my coloring, I'm a soft autumn and have pretty much same colors as you, but my hair is definitely very warm for a medium brown. I have been thinking about trying some ginger but with shadow roots with my natural color. Peachy sounds pretty nice unless you hate the idea?

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.

So I spent the weekend bleaching my (dyed) black hair and got a mixture of medium-light browns, blondes and whites throughout. I have very thick waist length hair so I know I'm never going to manage a fully one-colour hair. I'm aiming for a medium grey hair. I used grey permanent dye and my hair blends from an ashy blonde to grey.

It might be a stupid question but I don't really know where to go from here. It looks nice, just not what I was aiming for, so I don't need a quick fix. Should I do another lot of grey dye or should I focus on getting the orange out of it then dye it? How good is coloured conditioner?

my hair was thinning from hypothyroidism but taking the meds has made it all out in literal handfuls, it's incredibly thin now and just looks so terrible I'm too embarrassed to go out. I'd just shave it of so i don't have to have a mental breakdown everyday but it's too socially unacceptable where I live. I've tried all the topical treatments that have some studies backing them but nothing is helping. Idk anything about wigs or hair pieces, and I'm pretty sure hair extensions just ripped out more of my hair… does anyone have any tips on finding wigs that look natural, or would those attachable ponytails look natural?

Question–what is a good maintainance/casual braid style that includes braids near the top?
Preferably with two braids, because my scalp can't take the weight of one well.

I also have very thin, fine hair and honestly it's such a huge mess after the slightest bit of wind that I don't understand why I spent so many years wearing it loose.

No. 286262

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.

No. 286283

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).

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

Lather up Nizoral shampoo into your head, maybe add a couple drops of tea tree oil. Leave it on for a while before washing out. Wash your scalp every day like this for a while until it's gone, you have to be consistent. Yeah it'll dry your hair a bit but it resets later

No. 289717

I definitely notice more shedding when my hair is longer, I always thought it’s just that the individual strands are longer so it seems like there’s more. The shedding also feels lessened when I get regular haircuts, so I dunno, maybe keeping your hair short helps with shedding a bit. As for your growth, going from a pixie to shoulder length in less than a year sounds like normal to fast growth to me. Apparently about 6 inches a year is normal growth. I don’t think you have anything to worry about.

How difficult is it to upkeep bleached hair yourself?

No. 292850

Not trying to crush any dreams here but VERY difficult over the long term. It’s hard to get the color to match and not have stripe-y roots, it’s also hard to avoid re-bleaching areas of your hair over and over right near the root, so if the damage gets really bad you are stuck with committing to a very short cut if you want to get rid of the damage.

It depends. Oils help to condition and protect your brows so they stay on your face longer basically. Rosemary oil has been shown to promote actual growth. Castor oil is popular for brows and lashes but I don't think it's been proven to do anything. If your brows are naturally sparse or if you've been plucking them for years, don't expect big changes from any oil though.

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

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)

No. 293629

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.

Any anons know a cool goff/weird/messy hairstyle for long, straight hair that's not the typical bat's nest one? I have terf bangs but I've been growing my hair out for a few years (waist length now) and don't want to cut/shave it. I love it because I never have to style it but it can get a bit stale sometimes. I have long fake hair available and love braiding so if that's needed it's no problem! Also, any inspirations for different/uniquely cut bangs? I have bettie bangs and tried to cut them more choppy just now just to have something different.

I have never been able to grow long hair in my life. It will get to about shoulder length fairly quickly but then refuse to grow any longer, I spent like 2 years trying to grow it out before getting frustrated and going back to a pixie cut kek. My mom has waist length hair that grows insanely fast so I figure genetics isn't the problem. Should I try supplements or something?

No. 293743

What is your hair texture? If it's dry/porous it's possible it 'stops' growing because the ends break off, many people have a 'limit' when it comes to growing their hair out. If you dye or heat-style it that could have much to do with it as well. I have tailbone length hair because I barely cut it for about 4 years kek. I think those supplements are a scam but if you want and can try them I say why not? Also if you have coily or curly hair you could try having braids or fake dreads for a while so your ends are protected that way.

Thanks nonna! I'll be looking into hair sticks, I've thought about getting a wooden brush but they're quite expensive (if you actually want to get a nice one) so I'm saving it for a special occasion. I've been growing my hair out from a long bob to waist length now but I want it to grow down to my knees or as long as possible, it's been 4-5 years since I started. It makes me a bit self-conscious seeing women with extremely long and thick hair though. I don't have thick hair naturally, it's medium thickness but the ends can get very dry and break off so they look very thin. It's the only reason I trim it to begin with.

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 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.

While they looked great, they constantly got in front of my eyes, and that bothered tf out of me, and I couldn't do anything about it. And when the hair got greasy, the bangs would just make me look unkempt, especially considering I couldn't put them behind my ears with a tied hairstyle.

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

But I'm still self conscious about wearing wigs. I've been shopping around and don't know where to buy from or what to get because I've seen wigs worth hundreds and $20 ones worn by fashion youtubers who make theirs look natural. I've been burned trying to buy one that costed that much from a shit shop but human hairs will always get damaged and fray and I'm wary of all these generic shopping sites with fibres from god knows where that say they're kanekalon or even human (which feels sketchy after I saw a documentary exposing the hair trade, women in poorer countries get paid pennies for it or are attacked by people who literally cut and run).

Is reverse ombré not worth it if you have dark hair? I recently went to the salon and I’m lighter by the roots and slightly darker at the rest. I was not supposed to be this dark all over, my face looks better with not a lot to contrast it/contour it around. As it grows out I don’t want the same intensity and want lighter, similar to the roots, but what’s dark will probably have to stay dark because it’s already over-processed hence reverse ombre. I kinda wish I had asked to wait to come in later when my last stylist was in but I didn’t know when I was gonna be off again from work and wanted something new for start of November.

Why is dry shampoo making my hair even oilier? I have very fine, very low density virgin hair and don't use heat products. Normally my hair already starts to get oily one day after washing so I thought dry shampoo could help me have day 2 hair for once in my life. I spray about a foot/30cm away and let it set for 5 or so minutes before shaking my hair with my hands. I don't section because it's easy to see my scalp when my hair's starting to get oily. I'm using Berlin Pulp Riot dry shampoo which a lot of reviews said was good for their thin hair. Any advice?

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.

No. 297569

it's probably build up and I don't think you should keep using it.

nonas i have a dilemma…
for the past 6 months or so i have been going back and forth on dying my hair black. im naturally a warm brown with blonde highlights and honestly i like my natural color, but i have this compulsion to dye my hair black. i dyed my hair with black box dye in middle school but it always came out patchy and along with using heat i absolutely fried my hair and it took years to recover. i also had a problem with pulling out my hair, which i dont do much anymore. i do have a problem with obsessing over my hair texture though. my hair is currently a long bob with side bangs, and i just cant stop pining over photos of girls with black hair.
my concerns are…
i want to grow my hair longer, at least to my bust line. i dont intend to use heat on my hair, but will dying it make it damaged enough that it wont be plausible to grow it longer?
is this compulsion to dye my hair black a bad idea?
will dying my hair black make others see me as some goth girl fetish fuel? i already dress edgy, often in japanese lolita esque or emo/gothic styles and have for years but im afraid of being pigeonholed into a porn category.

No. 297927

If you don’t want to look too goth-y, try a soft black/darkest brown color. It’s a lot more flattering on naturally lighter hair. Whether or not your hair gets damaged from the coloring depends on what kind of color you use, how you take care of your hair, etc. Get more frequent trims if you’re really worried about the damage, but of course it will take a bit longer to get to your desired length.

How about you ease into it with a semi/demi permanent brown black, darkest brown or natural black? Go to a salon and explain that you don't want it to last long or damage your hair.

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)

your nigel isn't spending a bucketload of money to visually improve any body part of his for your viewing pleasure, he probably doesn't even shave his balls for you, so maybe you should calm the fuck down about your nipples of all things.

There's a separate thread for body hair, but it's probably not as bad as you think and i doubt your guy will care as long as he gets to see boobs and fuck.

What kind of color would look best on very oily and very thin hair, plus a huge forehead? I thought blonde would make the huge forehead less obvious, but might make the oiliness more obvious? What kind of shade or color would you get if you had hair like this?

Whatever colours clash with your complexion will make your flaws stand out more, whatever colours are in harmony with your complexion will make you look better. So it depends on the colour of your skin and eyes.

Uh I'm pretty fair, I think I have yellow/olive undertones, vague eye color tbh it's like a mix of grey/green maybe blue

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.

Dark colours hide oily hair a bit better. I have similar colouring to you and I dyed my hair soft black, I'm very happy with it. My natural colour was dark blonde, my oily skin and scalp would show through in the hair in mere hours.

My bangs were sectioned/cut too far back so I'm trying to grow the top part out (if that makes sense). Does anyone have tips? They keep falling forwards and pinning them just looks a bit strange.

Don’t use John Freida. His red tint conditioner and shampoo are purple based. They won’t make you strawberry. Maybe go for gingerful since it’s more red toned? It uses henna I think though so make sure you don’t plan on using metallic salt based dye on the same strands. You could also mix your own with vegan semi dye like arctic fox in your regular conditioner.

Head bands, hats, headscarf’s if pinning doesn’t work. Maybe braid the smaller strands back. You can also try curling your hair to help it blend sometimes.

so I have a big forehead that's been bothering me lately, but I don't know if bangs would be a good idea since my hair is extremely thin (plus I don't have a lot of it) and it's always oily no matter what I do
should I risk cutting it and try out bangs, or should I give wigs a try instead?

Same situation as you anon, I had bangs for years and it was such a struggle keeping them tidy. They would be always clumped together with oil unless I blasted them with dry shampoo and hairspray every morning. All the dry shampoo I used gave me a very itchy scalp with gunk buildup. They did a poor job of hiding my 5head because the hair is too thin, there was too little of it to have full bangs, and they had to be like 5 inches long. Best thing I did was grow them out, now I tuck them to the sides and wear a hair band, it gives a similar look to side bangs and still does an OK job covering most of my forehead. I'm unsure about wigs as I've never tried them, sorry.

Thanks nonna, now that you said it I could braid some fake hair into it and it might look like a conscious choice instead of a bad haircut kek.

No. 300249

oh wow that sounds like it was a hassle, I guess I'll avoid getting bangs because that same scenario will probably happen to me if I get them

I'm an idiot and accidentally dyed my 7N hair 6W instead of 6N I meant to grab. It's demi. Can I just put a demi ash over it, or a green semi, once it fades a bit? Demis always start out surprisingly dark so I wanna off myself rn becar it's basically auburn and I just painstakingly got stubborn red couple months ago. Pray for me, color oops will be my last resort.

It's hard to say for sure without being able to see it and any color treatment you've ever done to get your hair to where it is now going to play a factor. A pretty safe bet, or at least what I would do, is opt for the greener shade in semi-permanent and do a strand test. From that you can adjust the processing time and/or dilute the dye with conditioner.

>I haven't shampooed or brushed my hair in 6 years
Yeah, I can tell.

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.

I used 2% Ketoconazole shampoo because I had itchy scalp and dandruff since I was little and nothing helped. Dermatologists had no idea what it was. Anyways, this shampoo helped. Feels so good! BUT I lost so many hair while using it. I would say maybe 1/3 of my hair. And I still lose hair… but I think not so much since I stopped using the shampoo but I’m not sure. I developed some kind of anxiety disorder when I see how much hair I lose kek yes it’s very dramatic. Anyone else experienced that?

She washes her hair with rhassoul clay. I've actually seen a lot of black youtubers back in the day, naptual82 in particular swear by this and imo her hair always looked great. I don't think the woman in the other video looks dirty. Ngl, i did do it once and whilst my hair was incredibly clean and my curls are very defined, idk if i would ever do it again because of the clean up and the risk of getting clay stuck in the drain. Honestly, everything in the video is stuff i hear black woman talk about doing to their hair from oiling the scalp which i completely recommend btw. The video is long for a reason, it's very detailed.

Ketoconazole has been proven to reduce hair loss because it inhibits dht. If your hair is falling out, it's not because of the shampoo.
