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.

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)
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.

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.

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.

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 used to have 24" bellami extensions (beaded row ones).
Pros: got compliments on my hair genuinely every day wherever i went, held heat styles for days, let me cut alot of damage off natural hair without worry of losing length which helped my natural hair get really long
Cons:About $1200 for the hair and $450 a month for moveups + coloring my roots, didnt blend that great when I didnt style my hair, very heavy, couldn't wear normal ponytails without the beads showing (not a problem if you have darker hair)
I do it the way you recommend, hair first then body. I'll try to be more thorough? I do use my hands and not a loofah or cloth; if that's all I'm missing then I will be thrilled.
Any recommendations for the oily head? I think I'm just one of those people who needs to wash their hair every day. I tried no shampoo to see if it balanced out on its own but after 6 months I gave up (that was when I found out my hair products were breaking me out, but it feels like cursed knowledge now lol).
Currently I'm just being my oily self because it's better than breaking out to be honest. 2a fine hair doesn't look great weighed down like this but kinda feels like my hands are tied here.
nayrt but I bought a salicylic acid cleanser and a back scrubber for bacne. You can also try something like The Ordinary's Glycolic acid as a toner to help clear spots up when they appear.
One thing you can also try for oil control is dry shampooing before you get oily. IE, wash and dry your hair, then immediately apply the dry shampoo. Or spray it the night after you wash your hair and let it absorb throughout the night. I have short hair now but when my hair was longer, dry shampoo was my savior.

My hair is naturally dark brown, I've dyed it so it's a bit lighter (in pic). I have naturally quite pale/neutral skin though so I find it really makes me look old unless I tie it up. I usually dye it gingery blonde but I've recently given up because my hair grows out so quickly. Can anyone recommend a way to find a good middle ground between my natural colour and blonde? Should I try highlights? It's just such a pain to dye my whole head every few months.
Why not try something like >>273898
that won’t require so much upkeep? Keep a bit of your root color and blend it down with highlights and low lights. The grow out is usually a lot less painful compared to doing your whole head and touching up your roots every few weeks. Usually looks a bit more natural too.

Hey nonis can I get opinions please? I have long hair, a bit longer than the 2 photos to the left in picrel, blunt, no layers, slightly shorter in the front. I've been wanting to cut around a foot and get layers, like the 3 photos to the right, what do you think? If I cut it I plan on donating it.
I'm doubting because if I don't like it or miss it would take about 2/3 years to grow it to the length it currently is, but I am kinda tired of the maintenance (washing takes forever and finding 3ft long hairs everywhere is annoying). Going for an in between length is not an option because I want to donate.

How does every girl I know get her hair to look nice like pic related? It doesn't have to be straight like that, just a popular style I noticed. Yet it looks healthy, pretty, and uniform.
Meanwhile my hair looks limp and flat, uneven texture, easily gets messy or oily yet can also be too dry. It's almost troon-like and I'm only saved by having a decentish face. Picture a homely/mousy girl and she has hair like me (I probably am one lbr). The only hair care I do is shampoo and condition, which I change products for regularly and make sure to get the ones without nasty stuff in it. I'm guessing there is more to the process of getting hair like the pic. I don't even want it that perfect but closer to what normal girls have that I somehow never achieved. I actually would prefer to have waves or curls but I hate the idea of introducing heat to my 99% virgin hair.
>>307046>99% virgin hair
Speaking from my experience, and I used to have the frizzy "hermoine" hair when it was at its most virgin, heat styling via a hot air brush after your hair is 70 - 80% air dried is an absolute godsend and the one beauty tool I'd actually call a holy grail item. I've been drying my hair like this for over a decade every 3 days and it's very shiny and long.
Another thing I do is eat and drink protein bars and shakes. They have some good whey-based shakes that have a ton of good vitamins and nutrients and I've been doing this for over 5 years. Your hair may be virgin but if you have nutritional deficiencies you can still produce damaged looking hair. The quality of your hair is more contingent on you not having vitamin deficiencies and not bleaching or ironing the shit out of it than it is completely avoiding all heat.
As I've said, I've dried mine with a hot air brush for years but I don't mess with irons as their heat needs to be too high to work and is directly contacting the hair via plates, while the air brush produces hot air not hot metal, is already a lower temperature, and is evaporating water which displaces some of that heat energy. Bonus points if you point a fan at yourself while you use a hot air brush, the vapor flies away drying the hair faster and the cool air immediately sets the hair and locks in shine.
>>307046>I hate the idea of introducing heat to my 99% virgin hair.
Unfortunately heat is exactly how you get nice hair. Hair care is a bit of a catch 22 - in order for it to be healthy, you should avoid heat, not wash it too often, etc. But washing it and using heat is what makes it look good on a daily basis. Most of us have a bit of frizz or flatness that we really can't solve without heat styling.
If you're really determined not to harm your hair, you should possibly aim for a style with more texture. Like, sleep with your hair in a bun for volume or do heatless curls or braids for waves rather than never styling it and hoping it magically becomes beautifully smooth.

Everything you've said makes total sense nonas, thanks. I hope it wasn't weird to describe my hair that way but it's exactly why I've been hesitant to make a change, especially since I had recent health issues that made it deteriorate.
However, I see what you mean. Maybe I'll start with overnight braiding for waves to begin with or something else not involving heat, then move into it if I'm still unsatisfied (likely). I'm grateful my mom got me a heat brush (I think it's what you're describing) recently as a gift, so far I have barely used it. Time to break it in some more. Tbh heat damage sounds like a bit of a boogeyman since evidently most other women's hair looks great when they use it.
Pic is what I have and plan to actually use now (with heat protectant)

Does anyone know a light/non-greasy hair oil that can be used frequently?
I desperately need one since my hair ends are dry as fuck and only hair oils make them feel alive for a while, otherwise I look like picrel because I have short hair. But I also live in a humid country and can't deal with that greasy feeling on my head it feels like I'm getting deep fried whenever I step outside kek. I constantly feel the need to 'wash it off' but I can't, because then I'll end up with semi-greasy hair (if I use a gentle shampoo) and possibly acne or a dry scalp and dandruff. I can't try hair serums either because they could be expensive and many good brands are unavailable here, while hair oils are cheap and accessible. I know, covering my head to avoid sun exposure would/does help but it certainly doesn't turn dry hair into soft and silky all by itself.
I haven't, so I'll give it a try. Thanks for the suggestion nonnie

I have 2b/2c hair and I'd like to relax only my bangs, is it a bad idea ? I'm thinking about using picrel (n°1) since it's not too hard to find.
I like my blunt bangs, they are the style that suits me best and I have never not wanted them so I'm not worried about the permanence or anything. However I am constantly exposed to humidity and getting them to lay flat for more than a couple hours is impossible, I have to flat iron them three times a day and it's just stupid. My hair is currently completely natural and undyed, and I did a lot of dumb shit with it before with no problems, so I don't think it's too fragile and bangs get trimmed often anyway. But I'm afraid to take the plunge because whenever I see someone with relaxed hair it's a dry, gravity defying mess.
File: 1673323364548.jpg (65.41 KB, 750x750, SBS-311098.jpg)
Honestly my only experiences are with picrel since i have 3c hair and I can't say anything nice about relaxers, granted hair relaxers for black women are pretty much nuclear explosions for your hair compared to what you have posted. If you intend to relax your bangs you really have to invest in some bond repairing products to make sure it doesn't look like shit and look up maintenance videos. I'd also consider patch testing with a small section of your hair you don't give a shit about before fully committing because if it goes wrong, there is probably no way you can hide it. It's probably good to try and avoid getting it wet and straightening it as much as possible after doing the relaxer.
Thank you nonas !
I style my bangs with a blow dryer/round brush also and then flat iron and set them with hairspray. Back when I was in school this would make them last the whole day and even more, but I have a physical job now and am either working outdoors or inside a warehouse that's very humid, not to mention the sweat, so that's why I thought about relaxing them but yeah, it's probably not worth it.
I actually grew out my bangs a bit since I planned to cut them post-relaxer, but instead I'll cut something more layered and airy that will blend well with the rest of my hair when it curls up. Or I could try micro-bangs, but let's not replace a bad idea with another.
I did use a 100% henna. It’s been a few months tbh and i only used a brown toner over it. I was thinking of trying a bleach wash? I read that hair colour remover doesn’t work on henna.
I definitely have to think about it a lot if i want to go there really. I have decided so far to not refresh the colour atm.
I have a pixie that I've maintained for a year-ish now. Never cut it myself though, because mistakes are just that much more obvious when your hair is short. I get trims from this pretty cheap salon school by the students there. Most places advice a trim once every 4-6 weeks but you can kind of stretch it to two months if you don't mind rocking the overgrown look.
Do you want to cut it yourself? How about you get it cut professionally first and then do trims yourself? The maintenance kind of sucks, especially if your hair grows fast.

I bought one of these to keep my bangs up for morning skincare without styling them again, but for the life of me I can't get my hair to stay in it. I feel retarded because it seems like everyone else complains that their hair gets stuck, but even if I physically smash my hair into the velcro as I roll it still slides out and I just end up adding grease and kinking the tips of my bangs because they won't stay stuck long enough to roll them under. My hair is extremely fine, thin, and straight… is there just not enough to grab onto? Has anyone else had this problem and figured out a solution?
No, it's not.
If they are licensed/went to school/they have worked on "white" hair, before ever working on black hair
t. black woman whose black hairdresser works on all types of hair
I have never gone myself because I’ve wondered the same thing, if they’re going to look at me and think gtfo
But I think black female stylists are probably the best in the game because they care about the integrity of their hair and go to great lengths to take care of it, I love watching black salon hair videos like silk presses and conditioning treatments, I think you should go for it

>>313333>Use 1x per week, for damaged hair use 2-3x>Apply a generous amount from scalp to ends>Wash off
Yeah, I followed the instructions on the bottle. I didn't really use a "generous amount" and only used a dime-size 1x a week.
I even watched some brand-sponsored videos on how to use it and the same instructions were given, plus that you could use it on healthy or damaged hair. The sponsors emphasized that you "couldn't use too much" and that it was safe.
It probably does work better for bleach damage, but the brand definitely should've been clearer about that. I think that's why they're getting sued now, because it was being shilled as a "miracle product for all hair".

yeah that's what I was worried about, I guess I'll avoid bangs >>313329
I keep my hair somewhat short already so maybe I can try that >>313331
there are other pics of her where her bangs look a little bit greasy/stringy so I think it's her real hair>>313340
another anon recommended a pixie too so maybe I should go for it especially if it makes hair look thicker

Sure, picrels are close. I just cut mine myself with a flowbee lmfao. I love it so much that I wish I had been wearing it this way for years, even when I had thick hair. I've never been into doing anything to my hair and this style actually looks cuter the more bedhead-y it looks so it's perfect for me. I too plan to shave fully bald when it is my time but for now I actually enjoy my hairstyle for the first time in my life.

Any everyday hairstyles for long, straight hair? I used to just wear it loose but it's so long now it tangles like crazy. I've just been wearing it in a bun, sometimes with accessories like picrel but I'm a bit bored of it. The only other thing I can come up with are two braids but it just doesn't suit me, it accentuates my babyface.

What about hair sticks? They're kinda hard to get the hang of but once you get it down, they look so beautiful. There are lots of styles, and iirc long-haired women really like hair sticks because they can actually hold a lot of hair.

I talked to a hairstylist friend who has cut my hair before and showed her some pics with bangs like the one I posted and she said she thinks I have enough hair to pull it off… still iffy if I should just go for it though. also was just diagnosed with seborrheic dermatitis by my doctor and given some medicated shampoo (ketoconazole) so could sebderm be partially to blame for my awful hair? I'm really insecure about my shitty hair so I'm hoping the medicated shampoo makes some sort of difference. is there anything else I can try to improve my hairs appearance? like maybe sea salt texturing spray, vinegar washes, rosemary oil, etc?

Late reply but I have a similar complexion and hate hair upkeep, but enjoy a lighter hair look. I opt for very well blended highlights, it really brightens up my face while not requiring the level of upkeep a full dye would.

Nonas i wish to get a short fringe (above the eyebrows) but i think that my cowlick will not make it possible.
Picrel is just a reference but the left is similar to the side fringe i have now and the right is how i would like to cut it, i'm pretty sure i can not pull it off and it will end up looking like the top of a pineapple, should i just give it up?
My hair is naturally straight, i just have this random dumb cowlick that always troubled me and i wanted to try something different, straightening my fringe doesn't seem to work much to flatten it either.

Not sure whether to post here or in sex advice. Have had short hair for most of my life so it's a new challenge to me. Any tips on having sex in missionary position without your hair turning into a frizzy tangled mess? Should I just cut it short again? Having a bf is ruining my hair.
Thank you nonas, that was so helpful and you gave me some hope! Maybe i'll decide and go through some of these suggestions later on, i'm so tired of the same fringe.>>315855

I just happened to be scrolling up itt and saw this question that was directed at me 8 whole months ago and I feel bad for not answering. On the very off-chance this nonny
sees this reply, try texture spray wax but use it extremely sparingly. I do one spritz around my head from like 12" away and use it to "piece" your ends together to give the texture of the shag more definition (I usually skip this unless my hair is extremely clean and I need it to look bedheaddy asap beacuse my hair will do the same thing on its own in like 10hrs after washing). Also DRY texture spray which does the same thing as the spray wax but is much lighter in weight and less greasy; you don't have to be as careful with this one because it is more lightweight but still use relatively sparingly as opposed to sonething like hairspray application. I spray this on my roots to lift the hair and keep the texture prominent, otherwise my hair falls flat. (Note though: even when my hair falls flat it still looks pretty good because of the nature of the shag haircut but obvi the products make it look cuter) And last but not at all least, volume/texture powder. You can honestly only buy/use this and omit the other 2 products above because it's so good. Lightly sprinkle on your roots (not on top of your hair parting though, always put it under the top layer of hair) and it will look good even without the other two products mentioned above. It's also really good for keeping bangs in place on breezy days if you put it right on the base of the bangs. Use sparingly as well because it is extremely effective and will become a sticky mess if you put too much on. It's easy to learn though. When my mom and I discovered this product we went ape shit. If you're a burger let me know because I have a tip on really good deals for these products. I hope she sees this post!! Currently growing out a short shag and it's so playful and cute
Maybe? I’m a farmer, not a hair specialist. My hair used to be straight and smooth, then after puberty became wavy and frizzy. I’ve read hair texture can change in different stages of a woman’s life due to hormone fluctuations. Women have experienced changing hair in pregnancy and menopause. And according to this study, the thyroid can affect hair texture as well. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7432488/
Idk about your health or anything but I’m just putting this out there as a possible reason why it’s changing. It could be temporary or it could be permanent.

black henna is not real, there is no such thing, it's a scam and dangerous.
unless you mean mixing indigo or katam with henna powderhttps://www.beautiliciousdelights.com/blogs/news/indigo-or-katam-which-one-should-you-use-in-your-henna-mix
idk your hair type but anon just brush your hair every evening before you go to bed it’s way less hassle in the long run than letting it knot and cut it off.>>316855
nooo don’t do this! Get yourself some good quality henna (there are different shades) and indigo powder, learn how to use it and there you go. It’s a bit more complicated and if you have dyed your hair with other dyes before you should be careful and test it on a strand beforehand to not get weird results as its common knowledge to not mix henna with other dyes. If you do it right and already have dark hair you can achieve pitch black. plus all those premixed henna/natural hair dyes are trash, the best results can only be achieved if you make it fresh on your own.
Can't brush my hair everyday, that would fuck up the waves pattern so bad but thank you for the concern, nonnie
I'm a literal farmer so even protective hairstyles last maybe a couple hours before stuff gets stuck and everything becomes crazy frizzy
I recently shaved the lowest section of my nape where friction happened the most and it seems better tbh but I still have so much fucking hair I honestly don't think people will notice if I chop off some knots as long as they're tiny

my coworker keeps telling me I should dye my hair because it looks 'boring', I'm a natural blonde and idk what other shade or color fits me, she also tells me my hair doesn't look good from the front and I know that, my bangs are pretty thin because I struggle with alopecia and I explained it to her many times but she doesn't get it. It's still much better than it was before because I used to have my scalp literally showing at the top of my head and now you can't see it basically. I achieved that after almost 2 years of using minoxidil and improving bloodflow in my scalp through everyday massages and exercises, I also supplemented vit D and went full keto and included products that lower DHT levels. Someone who shits on my hair like her doesn't have any idea how much effort I had to put into keeping my hair. If I gave up, now I would have a bald spot on the top of my head and I would need to wear a topper. Even my trichologist was surprised by my effects, she didn't expect that, 2 years ago we were considering platelet rich plasma injections but recently she said I don't need them. Sorry for blogposting I just don't have a place to vent about my hair, I explained so many times how my alopecia works but certain people don't seem to get it and keep telling me about various conditioners and other shit when the problem doesn't lies in the hair itself. But on the topic of dying, do you think I should dye my hair? Also I have a question for owners of thin hair here: is blow drying better than air drying for you? I always thought that blow drying is bad for thin hair but recently I've been reading some different opinions. I'm also considering buying something like Revlon one step hair dryer, I basically never blow dryed or stylized my hair and I'm wondering if I could make it look better this way. I don't want to cause much damage though. What are some good heat protectants?
your coworker's a retard anon, don't dye your hair. Since you have a light hair color, the root regrowth would make your hair look even more sparse/like you are balding.
I don't have thin hair/alopecia specifically but usually, for people whose hair is fragile, it's better to avoid heat and dyes altogether in order to limit breakage, hair loss etc. Idk if there's a good cream/oil to tame the weird texture that minoxidil causes but maybe look into that if you're really worried about your hair looking messy. Or find a different haircut that you like if you're that bored with your current look, but whatever you do, keep your idiot coworker out of it.
your hair color is very pretty. I agree with >>317064

I recently cut most of my hair off due to it being severely bleach damaged. now I'm looking for black wigs but of course it's all indian hair, which is naturally black, but it is visibly not my natural hair color/texture. should I dye it over with black box dye to make it look more like white people hair that has only been dyed? srry if this sounds autistic
I'd suggest just letting your natural hair grow out for a while unless you know for sure you want to have black hair for a long time, black box dye is can be hard to get out of your hair and keep it healthy, hair salons are always bitching about that on social media and it will be really expensive (I saw one posting about how she charges an extra $100 for clients who come in with black box dye on their hair and called it "the shoe polish tax"). but if you KNOW you want black hair, it shouldn't be a problem.
my other suggestion would be to try a veggie like arctic fox or manic panic. the thing about those dyes is that they work better on bleached hair because they coat the outside of the hair instead of entering the hair shaft like permanent dye, so they typically don't last as long. you can also blow dry the dye when it's in your hair to make it last longer
I dyed my hair black with box dye a few years ago then bleached it out at home and dyed it back brown, my hair was in relatively good condition but still not nearly as good as it is naturally
For the sake of this thread I won't mention the ridiculousness of buying some other woman's hair just because you fucked up your own.
But what do you need a full head of kurokami for, really ? If you need presentable hair for work just get an inconspicuous style of wig in a color that looks good on you.
Most of us who have to cut off our hair after fucking around and finding out just cope and let it grow back though, it's not the end of the world.

What are the best shampoos/supplements for regaining hair growth and thickness? I dyed my hair with shitty garnier box dye about a month ago and that, combined with a really stressful period in my job and my family life, has led to me slowly but surely losing a ton of hair. I went from having super thick and full hair to it being thin enough that I can loosely hold it all in one hand. Just running my fingers through it makes me loose two or three strands and on wash days my shower walls are literally covered with hair. Please help!!
Iron and biotin. And you could start to put oil on your scalp and massage it. Warm up the oil, massage scalp with it and wrap warm towel around head. So relaxing!
I also lost so much hair but I think its coming back. I hope its for real and not just wishful thinking. I want to cut my hair a bit shorter than shoulder length and go blonde from light brown. Im not sure if I should go completely blonde or bleach the face framing part and some strands in the rest of my hair. So exited to get a huge change in my appearance though, its really needed.
Rosemary water is better than any oil though, and it's very cheap and easy to make at home. Just use it daily on your scalp
Also improving bloodflow in the scalp with head massager and taking vit D3.
I can only judge on my own hair dryer vs shitty hotel hair dryers but it does seem to make a difference, some are just weaker and dry your hair slower.
If you want a safe pick I'd go for Parlux, I got mine as recommended by a hairdresser friend and I've noticed every salon I've been to recently has them. Pricey but they seem to last. Like how my expensive GHD has lasted me over a decade, totally worth it.

i can't help you on the technical aspects because i have no clue either lmao but i use the InfinitiPRO by Conair and i really like it, i also got it to replace my ancient hairdryer and it is a significant improvement both in terms of drying speed and minimizing frizz. if you're able to access a bed bath & beyond that's where i got mine and because they always have hella coupons and discounts i got it for like $30 with tax but the regular price isn't terrible either.

I know almost nothing about hair dyeing (have virgin hair) so be patient nonnies. I have light brown hair color (level 5 or 6?) so would achieving the hair color in the pic be possible without using bleach, but something like high lift color? I'd probably opt to go to a hairdresser if I ever decided to dye it, but I'd still like to know if it's possible without bleaching?

I had short hair for most of my life but decided to grow it out because it’s more cost efficient. I’ve always been very low-effort in terms of my appearance, so lo and behold my hair is shoulder length now but looks like shit and I’m shedding everywhere. This is lolcow so I might get called smelly for this, but I have decided to embark on a natural haircare journey. I watched Katherine Sewing’s videos on youtube, as well as some other historical youtubers. Katherine goes a bit hard on the ayuverdic/eastern medicine mumbo jumbo which isn’t really my thing, but a lot of her practical advice seems sound, such as wearing protective hairstyles, using your scalp’s moisture as a natural conditioner and using e.g. a boar bristle brush to dry-clean your hair. I’m excited to see whether I’ll have any more growth and for how long I can avoid going to the hairdresser. Need to learn how to braid hair. Will post updates if I remember to. Does anyone else have experience doing "natural haircare"?
I have waist length long hair I constantly get compliments on and I'd never recommend natural stuff or any of those scams as I've tried them as a teen and none made a noticeable difference to me.
Make sure to wash your hair at least once two days because otherwise it'll get matted and the overly produced oil will only make things look and feel worse. Use hair oils from drugstore brands instead of buying natural stuff and trying to mix yourself because you'll probably fuck up the ph and get something that's too acidic since oils are acidic to start with.
Don't play with your hair or touch your scalp too much as it'll cause breakage and make your hair get oily quicker.
Get haircuts every 3-6 months if you can.
Always blowdry your hair, leaving it wet is more damaging.
Also get your blood levels checked, if you're unhealthy, no amount of upkeep will help your hair look better.
Only wealthy people could afford getting photographed and did buy from apothecary people. You just don’t get to see the people who had bad hair.
They also used lots of animal fats and grease to style, don’t romanticise the past.
>>319395>Don't romanticize the past
You don't need to use animal fats/grease/avocado oil or whatever to style/treat your hair, although some people did or probably still do for that matter. It's mostly about using less products on your hair (daily shampooing only became the norm during the 1920 and onward). Anyway, will probably report back in a couple of months.
Honestly I had great results with Olaplex no. 3, but there was another anon earlier itt who said she had bad results. There are a lot of great reviews that say it’s a hair saving miracle, and there are a lot of negative reviews that say they got bald spots after using it. I’m not sure what the disconnect is tbh. My advice that has personally worked for me:
- start application on dry hair BEFORE washing
- dampen hair with Olaplex no. 0 or with water (only dampen, not super wet)
- section hair and apply no. 3 evenly (I use a wide tooth comb)
- cover with plastic shower cap (keep hair damp)
- leave on about 1-2 hours
- wash hair with shampoo and conditioner
Some reviews I have read seem to think Olaplex no. 3 is like a conditioner, but it’s some heavy duty shit imo. It calls itself a “bond builder”. Don’t leave it in your hair overnight or use like a leave in conditioner. The brand has some leave in conditioners and styling products that are pretty decent though. I also think it’s more catered to heavily processed or bleach damaged hair rather than regular old dry hair. I used Olaplex before when my hair wasn’t bleached and barely saw a difference, but on my extra shitty bleached hair, it really made a difference. I hope this helps you anon.
Hi, nonnies, can I get some advice for hair that is extremely baby fine with 0 texture that is very prone to breakage?
Also for some reason once in a rare while it seems to…fluff up?. Like, it looks more dense, is much shinier, and looks less frazzled. Normally it's hell to detangle and in the sun has hair sticking up everywhere. My hair gets so greasy-looking normally that I have to shampoo it daily usually or wear a hat. The color itself worsens how bad it looks because it's a very mousy, cool, almost bluish brown next to my very bronze, warm skin.
IDK. I 'm just sick at feeling at war with my own natural hair, sometimes I feel tempted to just get a pixie cut, but I realize that it might actually worsen the issues/take even more styling to not look like a mess.

What do you think Scully's hair color is in numbers? I'm mostly interested in a tone than base color (7.?). It certainly has either .3- or .-3 (gold), but it seems like there should be another number, and I feel like if it were 4 it would be way more coppery? Please don't laugh at my pitiful attempts hehe, I'm no colorist
She said to only
blow dry and wash your hair every two days and if she uses natural products and air dries her hair looks matted… lol. Girl does not have naturally straight hair, clearly.
What do you mean how? Hair is more fragile when wet, which is why you shouldn't brush when wet, letting your hair stay in that fragile state for hours will damage it more that applying heat for a minimal time. Girls I know who naturally dry their hair always had the worst and most damaged hair possible even though it wasn't dyed or anything which makes me believe this. >>319814
My hair strands are thin so it gets weird when I don't blowdry but let it naturally dry. I don't get why you'd gatekeep straight hair though, what I do definitely works out for me and since anon wanted to grow out her hair I made recommendations. I don't understand how you expect me to wash my hair everyday and let it naturally dry when my hair is almost down my butt. It'd barely be dry by the time of next wash, kek.

Another balding one coming in. For me it was that I got celiac disease maybe after the vaxx like another anon told me. My hair is armpit long and so thin its like two rat tails. Maybe one thick rat tail. I will get this cute haircut though so its ok I think I look better with shorter hair anyway. Very excited.

These diverse opinions on this color are like slaps from every direction. I've had burgundy before but it was darker, this color is very bright and will stand out anywhere. Another example.
I also considered to only have a section of dyed hair. I also considered lavender, or a deep red. I want to live my best fullest life, hair grows back.
This color looks a bit pinker/mauver than >>320247
to me. Honestly, burgundy is overdone to me, but if you make a bit more pinker/more purple, I think it can look pretty cool or more modern. Do what you want of course! Just an opinion.

Actually guys I think I am gonna go with something like this, but my base hair color is not as dark, it's brown.
If you have a good forehead and can tolerate growing pains after, sure. I think it looks super cool on other girls but unfortunately it just made my face look bare so I had to compensate with makeup/accessories. I missed my bangs and hair in the front more than all the length ironically. But it feels really nice to the touch and after washing it sometimes I miss it. It's been like 2 years since I've done it and I'm trying to get it at least shoulder length again to see how I feel about going shorter again.
Your hair will also 'velcro' to things like pillowcases, beanies, ect right after it is done.
Hate to break it to you nonny
but there is no cure. Our hair will suck until we die.

From this pic it looks like L'Oreal's 7G "medium honey blonde" but you tell me, I've never watched X-Files.
Just curious, whats is your haircare routine? Mine is shampoo/condition 2 times a week, oil once a week and ACV rinse once a month. It's worked wonders, my hair is down to my tailbone now!>>321502
For your scalp an apple cider vinegar rinse might work, it also makes your hair more shiny so maybe that will help (it also gets rid of dirt/product build up). Also a wooden hairbrush and oiling your hair before washing can help a lot with frizz. Good luck nonnie
Anon you don't have the hair that'd be fit for curly girl or no poo, I think. You're not curly enough, my hair texture is like yours if I let it airdry(which i dont) and we're just wavy not curly, which imo is easier to take care of.
My hair was kind of like yours and I just use a basic Korean brand shampoo that made my hair straighter and oil my wet hair after shower using loreals classic hair oil.
If you have buildup on your scalp you can use a cleansing shampoo once a week or so and shampoo your hair two times in the shower if you feel like once isn't enough. Your hair might be greasy and not using enough shampoo or not shampooing correctly might be the reason why.
I wash my hair like once a day or once two days and blowdry it while brushing it out which seems to make my hair straight even though my hair doesn't dry straight when I airdry.
If you want a neater look you can just straighten your hair or do keratin hair straightening but that'd be damaging.>>321602
Mine is washing once two days or so, oiling after washing and oiling before I ever brush my hair. My hair is straight, a few inches above my tailbone so a bit shorter than yours but I'll get a haircut soon because it's too long for me right now. My last haircut was like 3 months ago if I recall correctly.
I wash every 2-3 days, I use homemade shampoo bar soap. Herbal Essences Smooth rose-scented conditioner. I let it dry halfway without touching it then I brush it from the tips then move up until the top of my head. I don't use heat on my hair much anyone.
Going to be real, I don't know how to take care of my hair.>>321606
Yeah, they pushed the concept as a bandaid answer which just didn't help at all. I didn't know about my hair type back then which is my bad.
Where do you get the shampoo? I have been looking online for a while. I haven't tried to blow-dry my hair at all. That just occurred to me.
My mom didn't know how to deal with my hair type since hers is the opposite of mine super curly, fine, and thin hair. I'll look up how to shampoo properly to see if that helps. I usually just do the roots and rub my head for a bit then rinse it all out.
I have the same problem except it started when I was like 15-16. My hair texture just changed completely and went from super smooth low porosity and shiny like a doll's hair, to this mess that always looks unclean and dry or greasy and no matter what I do, and I tried for years
, I can't do nothing about it. I also lost a big chunk of my hair and started thinning on the temples. Shitty hair genetics I think.

I'm contemplating whether I should stay black or dye my hair back to auburn. If you'd like to offer up any other color considerations that would work with my skintone, I struggle figuring out my season. All I ask is please no blonde
I want to say I'm a soft or true autumn but black actually looks okay on me so I might be a winter. All the charts I've seen for autumns scream that I need to stay away from black, but it's my favorite color. Brown eyes, my natural hair is brown with blonde and reddish streaks, freckles
Idk anon, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism at 15 but then after like a year all my thyroid hormones went back to normal and last time I checked them, like 2 years ago, they were still normal. My other hormones like estrogen, progesterone and testosteron are ok, everything seems to be normal except for DHT which is higher than it should be. I would have to take hormones to lower it and I couldn't take them if I wanted to get pregnant and also, my doctor told me she had patients wih much higher DHT levels than mine and they still had much thicker hair than mine so she also doesn't think that's the underlying cause. AGA makes me more sensitive to DHT but I don't want to stuff myself with hormones if all of my other hormones are all right, I don't want to disrupt them. If I had PCOS or something, I would consider it, but I don't.
I was vit D deficient but started suplementing and still no difference. I really think I just have shitty hair genetics. It's still hard to accept though, since my hair was the only thing I liked about myself, physically speaking, I think it was objectively beautiful, and even strangers on the street were complimenting me on it, both women and men, children etc.

Maybe I'll just stick to black. There's a coworker of mine who's willing to help me dye it red again, she knows more about hair than I do. pics are old and I'm currently at this awkward halfway point between black, red, and my natural color trying to strip the dark without bleach. I want a more boisterous red, similar to picrel, if I went for red again
I got a lot more compliments on auburn, which makes my heart sink. It's like people in general are more repulsed by black, but i like it better on myself. Just trying to find a half decent shade to go with so it my hair won't look like shit when I take my uni graduation pictures

no1curr but i got knotless box braids for my birthday and I am so in love with them. I went to a local african braider salon as opposed to an ig stylist like i did last year and the results are literally night and day and it took half the time! There are so many braids too so it looks full as fuck and there was 2 people working on my hair so it took 3 hours instead of the usual 6-8 hours. It looks like pic related but 10x better if you can imagine. I honestly want to wear box braids for the foreseeable future because its just so much easier for me to handle than my natural hair. The only thing Im nervous about is that I have to start looking for jobs again soon and I keep reading how corporate jobs hate box braids and you won't get hired if you go on an interview wearing it. I honestly feel like this is BS and fearmongering because box braids are neat and professional as fuck especially the smaller sized ones. I'm so tired of black hairstyles being policed and ridiculed. you literally have to think to yourself "will this hairstyle make me be treated like subhuman trash today?" I'm tired!!!
auburn is really trendy rn and so are warm autumn colors but imo they really don't suit everybody. there's so many natural blondes in my city who dye their hair strawberry blonde/ginger/auburn and you can really tell because it looks like the person often fades away if that makes sense, even if their color is pretty itself.
maybe in your case you could do a gloss so it's black but has a reddish reflection in the sun?
Maybe I'll just go for black again, although I think I prefer blueish black to the more ravenette black, it's easier and cheaper
If I don't pick the right red itll wash me out too much
Yeah that auburn is a little too close to my eye color and right now I don't think my hairs going to take it.
I'll go for black again, I already consulted some friends who said black is better and bought the dye as well! Thank you for your input

what's a faster way to fix or detangle extremely matted hair without cutting it? i'm talking almost glue-like levels of stuck
what type of hair do you have? depending on your curl pattern you might have to avoid the mayo and just go straight to jojoba oil.
This is a good guide:https://www.kizaia.com/blogs/news/how-to-untangle-severely-matted-hair
Love 518 on youtube is a wonderful channel that does detangling on a variety of hair types and she talks through the process realistically.
bangs can be annoying and high maintenance but curtain bangs also can be a safe intro to feel it out. a few soft pieces on each side can be cute and not really annoying, try it nonnie
mine are see through and i love the look but it's the type to need styling everyday/ between washes with rollers or something so too high maintenance for depressionchans

Is it possible having straight hair as a child (1b-1c), then getting wavier hair (2b-2c) after puberty kicks in, and finally going back to having straight hair (1b-1c) again at 23? In my teens I had crazy hormones that caused me some serious acne issues all over my upper body (but no PCOS), plus I had terrible stress and also kept my hair as dry as possible (even I had naturally oily hair) so it wouldn't compromise the skin on my back and my face. I didn't have any notion on haircare and so I used low quality shampoos and usually some camomille sprays that made everything worse. I never used conditioners. To fight my acne I went for an aggressive treatment with isotretinoin which dried my scalp and affected the quality of my hair. I was losing a lot of hairs every day and also noticed thinning despite having always had thick hair. On top of that, while I was at uni, I lived in a city that had very hard water. It's been two years since I quit the treatment, almost one year since I've moved back to my natal city with better water, and 7 months ago I chopped all my hair when I got a pixie haircut. I've been taking extreme care with my hair (high quality shampoo, oil scalp massages, ACV rinses, vitamin and collagen suplements, drinking all the water I need) and the hair that has grown since October is nothing like the one I had before. It's thick again, but softer and shinier. Is this due to a change of habits or does being completely out of puberty weight much more?
Sure, I'm a bit past classic now. I need a trim though, I've been getting a lot of split ends.
I always said classic would be my limit and I've been maintaining for about a year or two but I'm kinda tempted to try for knee length ngl.

has anyone lightened their hair with lemon or hydrogen peroxide before?
i tried with lemon and it got very slightly lighter, and i have some peroxide that my mom gave me (she used to put some in my hair and let me sit in the sun as a kid to give me lighter blonde streaks).
trying to think whether it's worth it. i just want a very light change for the summer, but i don't want to full on bleach and dye it. my hair is like the left image, i want it like the right.

been experiencing a lot of hair loss problems from years of adolescent SSRI roulette. im cutting back my meds and im in fact now on an extremely low dose but my hair is so thin and patchy in places i have multiple bald spots - if i don't wash my hair for 2 days you can see my scalp just visible across my head. it's really hurting my self confidence, was already bullied throughout high school for being a "bald freak". I'm trying to get a hair cut to get a short masculine style again, because that usually helps make my hair look more voluminous, but i was already born with a genetic hair disease that causes dry/brittle hair and a very sensitive/patchy scalp. should i just shave it all off? i'll look like a freak but i kind of do anyway and im a computer science/artist hermit, so it wouldn't be a surprise. im kind of at my wits end, im not even 20 and ive lost so much hair it feels unsaveable. may just fully lean into the well-dressed insane person look, because at least i know how to dress myself and according to my girlfriend i don't come off as a 'tist, just an observant recluse. dunno. really wanted to vent as well lol, i'm surrounded by lib-type white people and all the therapy sources in my area just push the "you're beautiful the way you are!" bullshit

Cut it short and embrace the buzz.
Spend the money on good quality shampoo, conditioner & strengthening treatment so any new growth is reinforced.
Silk pillow case and micro fiber drying towel (helped my hair breakage)
Getting the areas of your scalp/hair line tattooed
I understand the whole 'love the way you are' but goddamnit sometimes I just wanna look cute

There are hair fibers you can buy to make your hair look thicker, it actually works pretty well I've seen people use it.
I have had problems with hormonal hairloss in the past and since I have started to really take care of my health, eat healthy and take daily multivitamins it has really improved a lot.
NTA but I've used fibers before and it feels so weird on my head. They would barely stick on my hair strands, but that's likely because I have low porosity hair. I do think fibers would definitely work better on other hair types.>>327762
Tbh I think finding a shaggy type of hairstyle, anything with lots of layers can help with the appearance. My hair is past my shoulders and it's been working out pretty well keeping thinning shears on hand, surprisingly. Having layered bangs helps a ton.
Couple of options
-Consider an up-do
-Get a hairdresser to cut and style your hair who has your type of hair (Honestly, my hair is damaged & frizzy after years of straightening and finding a hair dresser who specialises in wavy/curly )
-explain in detail that it went super frizzy after straightening it and if you can remember what products were used so they don't use those

I just tried to do a blowout at home and it came out looking flatter than before I styled it. What the fuck did I do wrong? My hair is hopeless, I'm sick of nothing working.
I mean there's some promising research showing that pepperment and rosemary oil can help with hair growth. Not sure how true it is.
I'm more interested in rice water and whether or not it's a meme, tbh.

Nonas I’m so desperate. I’m growing out henna. I just hate the orange so much. Today I tried Wella Shinefinity which is a non oxidizing color on a test strand.

I've been using this piece of shit for roughly a year now and I realized it fucked my hair up.
I've always had thick hair but it started to look kinda thin lately, I didn't know why but then I noticed I have so much breakage.
Nonnies, what do you use to style your hair?
I like the look I get with this brush but I can't keep using it.
Hair straighteners make by hair look flat and greasy, I prefer something that gives a little more volume.

Does homemade chamomile tea leave a reddish tone in your hair like commercial sprays or can I safely use it to get highlights in my light ash brown hair? I'm going for a medium ash blonde at max, I don't want to change my color too much. I also live in a very sunny area.

Try this nona it’s awesome!
Nta but I'm in the same exact boat as OP and I looked into sprays like this- apparently they are extremely damaging (kinda duh) and a nightmare to color correct ($$$) if you ever decide to dye your hair. >>331969
Also something to keep in mind is that the spray will turn your hair copper/orange-toned, it won't stay ashy (I have light ash brown hair as well). I'm assuming you can tone it using purple shampoo or a toning kit but I haven't looked that far into it because I decided to not use the sun lightening spray.
File: 1685467142262.jpeg (106.36 KB, 1179x1677, IMG_8939.jpeg)
Got curious and looked this up. It’s basically just hydrogen peroxide and water in a spray bottle.
I used to use a lot of “natural” treatments to lighten hair, chamomile tea, lemon, plain old hydrogen peroxide, I personally don’t recommend any of them. Even if your hair is fairly light, the results are usually so subtle they’re barely noticeable, or they’re very orange/yellow toned. It’s up to you of course, but some subtle professionally done highlights and lowlights will look a lot better and not be so damaging since the process is more controlled. >>332148
I think this is just because shorter hair is associated with older women.

Kind of late to the party but you could try a japanese hair dye such as Liese (recommending this one bc I haven't tried the others) my hair isn't as dark as yours but I used a brighter copper shade (bottom left in picrel) and it turned out very bright. So I think one of the darker reds would work on your hair. This was many years ago though, I think they changed their shade range since then.
For the eyebrows I just used brow mascara, there are special dyes but since it seemed troublesome and dangerous I never tried.
Dyeing your hair regularly is a considerable money drain and waste of time however. Don't do it just because an AI told you so.>>332446

What are good layered haircuts for wavy hair? (i think i have wavy hair)

Okay girls so my hair is like this naturally, very dark brown. Looks black in lower lighting and has a slight reddish/lighter brown tint in direct sunlight. Never bleached or dyed it.
Should I buy a natural looking red colour box dye and put it over my hair to achieve a natural redhead look? And do the same with my eyebrows? I'm obsessed with natural redheads and I already have a slight red tinge to my hair in the sunlight and I think it would suit my cool toned, pale white complexion.
On a side note, I saw a natural orange haired girl with blue eyes and while I usually prefer dark eyes, she looked like a princess and I probably looked like a strange creepy goblin staring at her lol. Why couldn't I be born with copper hair why does God hate me

File: 1686581144519.jpg (57.85 KB, 520x759, orange_hair_color_shades_ideas…)
I used to love dying my hair, so I say go for it! Make sure you're ok with it being a little bit damaged (all box dye is damaging to some degree, be forewarned). Careful not to give yourself hot roots. Be careful with box dyes because a lot of them are an unnatural tone. With reds you often get some version of the shades in picrel – traffic cone, ronald mcdonald or burgundy/purple wine-red and not a true ginger color. There are more natural looking oranges out there but you have to do your research.
if you have long hair you could always experiment first with the ends and do a two tone thing.

this shit works SO WELL, went from ginger back to legit platinum. it doesn't smell anywhere near as bad as the other ones (which smell like sewage imo) I'm proper stoked?? I've tried so many of these and they all hardly work or proper stink for days.
, I’m so sorry you got lice. Could it possibly be from your mom’s home somehow? If you haven’t come in close contact with anyone recently, look at things like combs or any shared items. It’s more uncommon than person-to-person contact, but it’s not impossible.
I found the Maui hair range to be quite damaging to my hair & scalp. The second ingredient is a long-chain sulfonate salt which is very drying and can cause the over-production of sebum to counteract the 'deep cleanse' it provides to the scalp.
If you're looking to do the curly girl method, I had good success with my scalp with Noughty hair products.
I personally ended up giving up the curly girl method and went back to using Kérastase or redken
I have wavy hair too and I had to modify the CG method to get it to work for me. I don't follow the product recommendations in terms of sillicones etc. that have to be avoided. Just a regular sillicone shampoo, conditioner and scrunching in mousse on dripping wet hair and drying it with a micro fiber towel gets the best results for me.
That said if it left your hair greasy, are you sure you clarified before starting to use CG-approved products?

Maybe go very, very light blonde and dye your eyebrows to make it look more natural. Or get your hair done like picrel if you have dark eyebrows and don't want to dye them. Hope it turns out good, update us please

I'm a complete noob when it comes to haircare so please no booly if i'm retarded, but how do I detangle my hair without it getting frizzy? I'm frustrated because my hair has a deep wavy texture with almost ringlets at the ends naturally but when I brush/comb it in the morning I just end up looking like picrelated. Most advice says to detangle when wet, which I do, but I can't shower in the morning due to timing issues so it'll inevitably get tangled again while I sleep.
>>337849>how do I detangle my hair without it getting frizzy?
You don't. If you have curly hair you should only detangle it when wet, so you can get rid of the dead hair and get the conditioner evenly distributed throughout. Stop brushing/combing your dry hair because it will just mess up the shape of your natural curls.>>337983
This is what I do too, leave-in conditioner is a godsend.
Like the other nonnie
said, I use a spray bottle or the handheld shower attachment. Both work good. >>338059
I do this already, but when I want to wear my hair down and curly for the day, it makes a big difference to wet my hair in the morning and then scrunch up the curls. Just taking it out of the braids after sleeping doesn’t look the same to me. In the summer I usually just redo the braid or bun because of the humidity though.
I wash my hair like twice a week at most and it’s super dry so it doesn’t get too greasy but it does sometimes and when it does I do a loose French braid or use a hair claw to do it up, I like a lot of volume and looseness because I have a peanut head and I will NEVER be seen in public with slick hair.>>340272

Do you also have an alternate shampoo and an alternate conditioner? My dermatologists always tell me to alternate the medicated shampoo with a “softer” shampoo, like made with natural ingredients and without any scents. I used to use one I would buy with oatmeal milk, it’s pic related.
The doctors told me to wash my hair at least twice a week and to wash my hair once with the medicated shampoo and the next time with the other shampoo and such.

I'm autistic about haircare so I'd like to do it as natural as possible and without damaging it at all, but henna seems scary and too intense

im planning on bleaching and dyeing my virgin hair (hope thats the right term) but i recently started using special shampoo for my dandruff, its almost completely gone, and im wondering if i can bleach&dye my hair after the treatment is done or if i should wait a bit afterwards? im kinda scared it'll irritate my scalp or something. idk sorry for the retarded question
I can't say for sure because I don't know how serious your special shampoo was, but if your scalp is not more sensitive than usual it should be fine. No harm in waiting longer if you're not sure. Bleach chemical burn on your scalp sucks, I've done it to myself. To lower the risk of chemical burn it's recommended not to shampoo for a couple days before bleaching roots. FYI if you are bleaching and your scalp starts to burn not just tingle then you should rinse it off immediately.
Are you worried about bleach and dye giving you a dandruff flareup? It can definitely make dandruff worse. Might be worth considering if you just went through a treatment.
im curious about this too
ive considered just starting to dry my hair with a blowdryer every time i wash it because otherwise my hair looks so unruly. probably let it toweldry mostly first though.
but i remember that when i blowdried my hair in ms along with hair dye i totally wrecked my hair for years. i didnt eat animal products to various degrees though so im sure that didnt help either.

I have 4c kinky af hair! I recently lost a lot of it due to me honestly turning lazy after my hair reached a certain length and not maintaining it among other things I was blow drying it like crazy because I wanted to see my length. (My hair shrinks like 75%). I also just hated detangling because it was time consuming and seemingly impossible the longer my hair got. Now that I noticed my hair was falling out this whole time I’ve decided to take my natural hair journey seriously again. What has been a game changer has been the knot on my watch detangler from aunt Jackie’s. When I tell you I can literally sleep on my Afro and wake up to it being a matted mess but as soon as I use that detangler my brush glides through my hair. I highly recommend if you are prone to knots and locs like me. I haven’t had to cut out a loc or rip through a knot since I started using it. I just wish I found it a year ago when my fro was giant. I’ll get my baby girl back!

Same anon I also tbh contribute Aussie shampoo and conditioner for my hair loss too! In like 2021 the natural hair community was raving about it specifically 4c girls because usually hair products not designed for our hair type are too harsh and drying. But aussies pull was that even the shampoo was softening and it made detangling in the shower easier. However I noticed that every time I used that product I would brush out clumps of hair. At first I thought it’s just shed hair and I’m being dramatic. But looking back I remember seeing big clumps of my hair on the floor. Then I saw a tik ton of a girl saying Aussie made her lose her hair so I stopped. As soon as I stopped using Aussie and went back to using shampoos and conditioners targeted for natural hair, my hair barely sheds! And when it does it’s not in large clumps.
Any nonnies experienced hair loss from Aussie products? Pic related was my go to for like almost 2 years straight and my hair is about half the length it was year ago

I've been thinking of dying my hair like this (but with a more gentle ombre), but I'm kind of worried that it won't look good on wavy hair or that it will seem like I just have forgotten to cover up my roots. Should I go for it nonas?
I think a good diet helped me a lot with that, and getting my ends cut at least bi-monthly by someone with “good hands” idk, it’s something people talk a lot in my country, you need to find a hairstylist with “good hands” to help you out with that.
Something else that I think has helped me a lot is not being too stressed, working out helps me relax, and I think that my hair gets longer when I spend at least a month working out daily without interruptions.

Most leave in products make my hair greasy. Anyone got an recommendation for a nice blow dry cream that is not heavy? I’m eyeing picrel but I would cry if it’s too heavy because of $$$

honestly i genuinely believe braids are not meant for every hair type. braids can be very harsh on your hair no matter the hair type.(hell sometimes its harsh for me and i have a whole afro) If you are noticing frizz and broken/tangled hair i would cease! Also please remember that just because someone's hair "looks" like yours doesnt mean their hair care will work for you. You have to factor in not only their hair type but density and even porosity too! That person might've had more density than you and could handle braids.
not to give out community secrets but, I feel like nonblack people with straight hair would benefit from wrapping their hair at night. I think that is a protective sleeping style that would benefit straight hair the most. in the black community (hispanic too) after we straighten our hair or get it permed we do this thing called wrapping (theres another term but i gave yall too much already) where you get a paddle brush a shit ton of bobby pins and brush all your hair to one side wrapping it around your head while bobby pinning it down. Not only does it maintain your style but it protects your ends from rubbing against your clothes/pillow while you sleep. Its also straight hair friendly and not harsh on your hair like braids would be. Pic related is how it looks when done correctly. Afterwards you get a scarf or bonnet to further protect your hair. Just remember the direction you wrapped it when taking it down.

I'm white and I've done this before but without the pins! I was amazed at how straight and smooth my hair was when I took it out in the morning, especially my ends. My hair is slightly wavy otherwise. Now I just wear a bonnet for long hair because it's easier and I didn't like how wrapping changed my hair texture.
LISTEN you might call this retarded i call it self preservation. somethings you gotta keep secret otherwise prices will go up! supply and demand people! gatekeeping is important actually!
But seriously! Long bonnets work too! as long as no one is sleeping on cotton pillowcases and we are actively protecting and moisturizing the ends of our hair and not over manipulating anyone can achieve long and healthy hair!

Nonas help me decide on what to do with my hair.
I am tall, have a bit of a wide round face but no babyface, i look my age.
My hair is wavy light cold blonde, around 2A-2B. It is currently to my collar bones. It grows fast, and earlier this year i cut it shoulder length, around 15-20 cm shorter than what it was.
Im playing with the idea of cutting it shorter , like picrel.
Would it work with a round, wide face? i feel really insecure if i dont have alot of framing pieces and bangs over my forehead. I would love to keep it long with hime bangs, but it looks silly on my wavy hair.
Any other styles that would look good on me? I dont have time in the morning to style it. ¨
Do i just grow my hair long ago and accept having boring hair?

What's the most low maintenance way to dye my hair? Is it worth the damage/upkeep? I have medium ash brown hair and I'm thinking of getting blonde highlights to match how it looked when I was young. My hair is super healthy, thick and shiny so I don't know if I want to risk damaging it. It also grows like 1-2 inches a month so I can't dye it from the roots. But I want some dimension in it.
Pic rel, left is my hair, right is what I want. I just feel so boring with dark hair and dark eyes and pale skin.

I asked this same question about a year ago and I'm still unsure so I'll ask again. I miss my buzzcut/'skinhead girl' haircut I had as a teenager but I don't want to give up my long hair (10+ cm past my shoulders) so I thought of something like picrel as a remedy.
My hair is decently thick and wavy so I'm not too concerned about volume. My main question is will this be a bitch to grow out if I decide I wanna get rid of it without cutting the rest of my hair? Is it impossible to maintain yourself?

this is late and maybe you've already dyed it by now (how did it turn out?) but i think it can work, it'll just be a much darker red/auburn. you can try recreate something like lola tung's hair (she's a natural redhead).
also not to discourage you but natural redheads have warm toned skin even if it's pale. red looks kind of off on cool toned skin. but if you have a slightly red tinge to your hair then you're probably more warm toned than you think.

Alright thanks, guess I'll stick with the hair I have, since it's very low maintenance and cheap. I used to have hair like picrel about seven years ago, but then I simply stopped going to the hairdresser and let it grow.

she is a natural redhead, her eyebrows are slightly red too.

What color hair would you say this is
No it's not, a pretty girl can have neon pink/platinum blonde/etc. unnatural hair and look good but it'll look bad or trashy on most people. It's similar to face piercings, if you're hot it adds character, if not you look cheap. >>344240
Why would anyone be jealous of a color they can easily get if they visit a hair salon?
you totally can but it might be less expensive to buy a high quality human hair wig in blonde and try it out that way.
if you do go blonde you'll need several lightening sessions to lift your natural color and it might be a fun idea to pick some in-between shades to wear as transition colors (consult a stylists, wouldnn't wantot pick anything that makes it harder to lift)
thanks anons >>344238
that’s my natural hair color lol, wdym cheap
>>345939>What hair color looks good on a VERY pink toned person?
Her natural color.
>she's one of those who was blonde as a kid and therefor thinks her now very clearly brown hair is still blonde
Cringe and delusion. Why are you friends with her? Reminds me of people with brown eyes who say they have green eyes.>>345946
Nobody who has to dye their hair these colors ever pulls it off.

I have no idea how to take care of my hair nonnas. I have 3a-3c type hair, extremely thin and low porosity (very similar to picrel, no shame to the model). I should note that I've lost around 40 to 50% of my hair volume since 2019 and still experience major shed (I use 5% minoxidil nightly to prevent from becoming bald).
My hair is always limp and airy after drying, curls never defined/frizzy, low density, there's no weight to the hair and consistency in texture. Like for example I have two weird bunches of strands at my base that are always awkwardly dry/frizzy and they feel almost gritty to the touch. I have never dyed my hair or bleached it, the most I've ever done is straighten it once or twice in my life. Granted I usually keep it up in a bun most of the time since I stay in the house and only make it look nice for when I have somewhere to go. I've also heavily neglected it for a good decade, which probably is the reason for it looking like a rat's nest. I just want to revive my hair again and be confident wearing it, and not have to plaster it with a bunch of oils and leave-ins that make it look worse. I'm not good at hair science at all nonnas, I really would appreciate any advice.
tldr; I can never have a good hair day and idk what to do to make my hair flow naturally and beautifully like most 2b-3b curly girls.
