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

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.

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.

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

>>273676
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’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

>>273708
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

>>273708
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

>>273708
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.

Question time: I have a lot of hairs sticking up on my crown and some on the top of my head, some on my part, and some on the sides. I want to know if this is most likely regrowth or breakage? 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

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

>>274873
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.

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

>>274873
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.

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? It's currently in the awkward stage where my bangs are too long, but not yet curtain bangs and all the layers are swallowing me up. Alternatively, give me haircut ideas for a long, square face and thick straight hair! I feel like I've had everything under the sun and I'm just bored.

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!

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.

No. 276824

>>276817
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.

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?!!

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
