Basically I want bangs but I'm afraid the top of my head will look like it has a baldspot. I'm also not sure for what type of bangs to for.

For anons with undercuts, do you maintain it yourself or go to the salon? I think buying a shaver would be more economical but I'm afraid of screwing it up.

I'm not exactly sure what a "shaver" is, but if it's pic related I'd say go for it. They have these different types of endings which can prevent you from going too short.

No. 43589

Depends where the undercut is. I had one on the side (is it just a sidecut or undercut too? IDK) and I trimmed it myself with two mirrors and lots of patience. Pin all of the other hair back very tight and smooth, go slow and keep checking with an extra mirror. They're bastards to grow back though, I had a love-hate relationship with mine until I just let it grow out. Now I want one on the lower back of my head.

No. 43590

I need a good heat protectant. Any good brands or recipes?

No. 43591

So I bleached my hair to hell and back, and I want to dye my hair brown. But my hair is a damaged and it feels like straw, no matter how much product I use, how little heat I use, etc. I already cut it a bit, so I don't have many options. I need some advice.

No. 43592

I spent a lot of money on keratin treatments and other products after I dyed my hair back to brown from being blonde. None of them really worked so I chopped it all off and got extensions. The extensions were only there for a few months until it got to a short bob. It was worth it and fun to have long Rapunzel hair.

Sorry if this advice is useless, I feel your pain

No. 43593

When I got my hair bleached the first time (they actually did it 3 times, because the hair was black) I started using diy hair masks. One that really helped was egg, milk and honey. Sounds gross and smells like it but it helped somewhat to get the moisture back.
Whatever you use, just keep using it, it takes a while for the hair to repair itself.

No. 43594

There really isn't a way to completely cure or fix damage on hair, since it's already dead when it grows out of the skin. Products with silicone can fill the gaps in the hair and make it seem smoother and thicker, but some people just don't like silicone in their hair. I abused my hair until it literally burned off about an inch, I've tried everything for about a month but still I'm getting the damaged ends cut off. Treatments can fix some of the hair so you don't need to cut off as much, but there is no real miracle fix. I've been using ton of conditioner (no silicone), oil before washing, washing my hair 1-2 times per week, making sure to eat healthy and I've let it be natural, no heat, blowdrying or any styling/coloring products. It has made it better but I still have to cut off quite a bit. I'm never bleaching my hair again, especially not 4 times in one summer. Very stupid thing to do, learn from my mistakes and burned hair.

No. 43595

What hairstyles are good for people with fiveheads? I've had some sort of bangs my whole life and I'm tired of them.
I look like I'm balding around my hairline and temples even though the rest of my hair is thick. Am I just stuck with bangs?

No. 43596

With or without hold?
For just a plain protectant, Tigi/Catwalk makes a good one that doesn't leave much of a product-y feeling afterwards. Wella's Eimi styling line also has a decent one. My favorite stylers are from the Colorproof line (everything from them has heat protection), but it can be a hard brand to find + expensive.

If you're looking for something with a good hold, especially if you have fine hair that hates holding curls, I suggest Redken's #22 Hot Sets

Try Olaplex. If you can get the #1 and #2 treatments from a stylist and then get the Take Home #3, it should help significantly.

Cut off as much as you can, honestly. Especially split ends! Otherwise they'll damage your healthy hair and you'll never have long, healthy hair. It'll grow back anyway.
Also make sure to get a reddish brown when you dye it otherwise you'll end up with a greenish brunette.

I want to cut my hair but I'm not sure what to get. My problem is that I have thin hair and a large forehead and finding something that would look nice isn't easy. Most of the stuff I find online seem to be short "mom" haircuts, '00 hair styles or complex braids/ponytails and I really don't have too much time in the morning to style since I have to walk to work

No. 43602

I'm 100% the same, anon… Kiki forehead, Kiki thin hair. I'm not balding like her but it's bad anyway… Sigh.
I don't have a "proper" haircut, it's basically the basic long hair with side swept bangs. The only suggestion I have is this: i started applying a tiny bit of hair mousse into my bangs before blow-drying and it has helped me a lot. It looks a ton better. You can apply it to your entire hair, of course.

No. 43603

Thanks, I'll try. Just got to get the right amount so it won't end up being greasy. It's also the reason why I'm unsure about bangs - I have oily skin so I end up breaking out on my forehead. :/

Just used color oops on my dyed black hair that I had for about 2 years. Going to bleach it here on Friday but reading stuff like >>43591 freaks me out. I'm only bleaching it enough so it'll at least get dirty blonde (seeing as right now my hair is half orange and half dark brown) then I'll go again in a week or 2. Plus my hair is pretty soft and healthy rn due to lots of deep conditioning.

No. 43608

I'm bleaching anon. When I bleached my hair the first time, the damage was minimal since I let my hair soak in coconut oil for about 2 hours before I bleached it. The coconut oil acts like a barrier for the extensive damage. Try not bleaching everything in one sitting, and don't use anything more than 20 if not 30 developer; anything more WILL fuck up your hair entirely. When in doubt, go to a professional. My hair went from being about 30 inches to 14 inches, mainly because I cut off that much to save whatever was left. Ironically enough, what damaged my hair was color oops after I dyed it for a job. Worst mistake. Just a tip for anyone, if you're ever in a position where your hair is at risk, buy a wig. It'll save you so much time, damage, and effort. I used to be so careful about my hair and how I kept it, and after awhile, I was like fuck it. Hair grows back, so there's never really a need to stress. Keep us updated on how your hair goes!

No. 43609

OCD has ruined my hair because I've picked at it too much and ripped hair right out of the follicles a lot over the years, not to mention stress has my hair falling out every day. It's not in huge clumps but I definitely notice hair falling out a lot more than it used to.

I have tried biotin supplements but it only seemed to help everything that wasn't my hair. Am I just completely fucked? I feel so ugly because I can't do anything to my hair without exposing bald spots (the prominent ones being on the very top of my head, and either side of the top-back of my head). I also have thin and fine air which just makes me feel like a balding old lady. It's gross. Please tell me there's something I can do to remedy this.

Buy a serum that helps keep your hair straight. The one I own is Straight Talking from Mark Hill. It's pretty good. I put it on after I wash and dry my hair, and when I straighten it, it comes out pretty straight. To hold the straight, I'd recommend a little bit of pomade to hold it together.

Try a ponytail maybe anon? A side one maybe. You could still comb through your hair but not at the root so if you come across a knot, you won't rip the root out.

Just touching it or pulling it out?

I'm going to start wearing a satin night cap to retain my hairstyle and hopefully help stop breakage. I bought one from Sally's but it seems kind of low quality. Do any Anons use these? Do you prefer using a wrap? Any hints?

I wear one because I'm black with longish curly hair. I use square silk scarves.
The bonnets always gave me a headache, and the rectangular stretchy ones allow you to tighten too much and pull the hair.
really be careful about not putting any pressure on your hairline.

No. 54876

Basically, quite some time ago I used to dye my hair with henna (lush, so no metallic salts), I stopped using it and just used dark brown box colour, recently I used a colour remover which was pretty good, gone a light brown/ginger except for the last three inches which are only slightly lighter, I've been to the hairdresser to have it lightened, they've done a strand test and said it lifted fine, but I'm worried about the whole head as I haven't mentioned about the ends being dyed with henna as usually hairdressers won't touch it, anyone know if my hair will melt off or go green? Sorry for the rant

No. 54920

Touching it, rearranging it, combing out knots, but not sure if it's trichotillomania. I also pick at my face. What do you do to keep your hands busy? I feel like that would take care of both issues vs just wearing a ponytail for the one.

No. 54946

Writing, drawing, just holding stuff and touching it, using my phone, a round rock in the pocket, etc.

No. 54963

Hi anon,

Which lush henna did you use? Since there are no metallics salts, it won't react to bleach and make your hair smoke off. They do however mix henna with indigo to get different shades of red and brown.

If you used anything darker than a light bright pure copper (the colour of natural henna) there's a chance that indigo is in your hair. This can be a problem because it doesn't lift as well as pure henna and as you get lighter you could find your hair coming up stained dirty blue/green under the henna.

If your hair is just straight henna'd with no indigo then you can bleach no problem but it might have an orange cast that's hard to tone out compared to the roots - also the quality and thickness of your hair might decrease as a result of breaking down the henna (henna thickens and protects the strand as you know - it can be jarring when you lose that thickness!)
But if you're fine with that, then go for it! Good luck anon.

Side note - if anyone else is thinking of henna-ing their hair I would definitely recommend using 100% BAQ henna over the Lush stuff - you get better control over what goes in your hair, it's cheaper, it's simpler to bleach or dye over, and you tend to get a more even/rich result too :)

No. 54972

Anon, you babe! Thanks for your great answer. I used the brun one, which does unfortunately have indigo, I haven't dyed it with henna for about six months so I don't know if that makes any difference! Very anxious but I'll see how it goes

No. 54988

Just to add, the hue also depends on the henna. Jamila (there are posts online on how to tell real Jamila apart from counterfeits) takes longer to release dye and usually runs orange, Red Raj is a true burgundy red, there's articles about that also. If you're after a specific shade it's good to know that.

I'm getting this haircut tm (not a first, I've had this cut before). Only difference is that it's going to be shorter in the back, and longer in the front. I'm having trouble getting volume in my hair, it tends to either be stripey or super static. I've tried mousse, blowdrying and brushing with my head upside down, sprays…but nothing works. In the few occasions that it does work, it only lasts for like 2 hours, then the volume is gone.

Am I using things wrong, or what can I do?

Maybe ask for layers underneath the main, visible hair. You can also try volumizing hairspray

DO you have a good haircut? Curly hair is hard to cut, because it goes against every fiber of a hairdressers being to cut the way it needs to be done. If it was straight hair, you'd basically end up with a badly/choppy layered bowl cut. I haven't been able to find a hairdresser I really like yet, I'm considering going in and asking they cut my hair dry.

No. 55578

Thank you for the advice! I had never heard of the Curly Girl Method, but now that I know about it I'm willing to give it a try. I'm still trying to figure out what would work for me, because going no-poo and washing only once a week sounds a little scary to me. I work out and sweat a lot, and my job requires I look nice and processional.

I currently have a layered haircut. I honestly don't even know what to ask for when going to a salon. But I'll lool this up too and I'll surely try it. If it doesn't work I'll have to wear my hair in a bun until it grows back lol

No. 55587

Same exact thing happened to me two months ago. I find that the inversion method actually helps even though I thought it would be nonsense. Until the layers do actually grow out though, I'm just sticking to ponytails/braids while missing my long hair, sigh

I'm growing out my hair for the summer and it's currently boob length. My hair gets extremely fluffy and unevenly curly everywhere because I have very thick hair and no layers. I want a layered haircut that isn't too short. Should I get layers that are dramatically different lengths and choppy to negate the fluffiness? Or does this only work when you have straight hair? (pic related)

No. 55854

Is pic related how your hair currently looks, or what you are looking for it to look like? I have naturally thick, wavy/lightly curly dry hair BUT use keratin hair treatments. The hair in the photo is similar to mine before brushing it in the mornings if I didn't straighten the day before. Keratin is my "secret" if that's the look you are going for.

Opinions on growing out hair that's been color treated/bleached?

My hair is currently about an inch below my armpits. About a year ago I bleached it and I've been growing it out ever since (no coloring, no bleach heat protectant ect.) I like the dark ash blonde I have growing in. But I feel like it clashes with the weird faded blonde that's the rest of my hair.

My question is, should I risk the money to try to color match the rest of my hair to my natural color so it will be easier to grow out? Or just let it grow naturally and avoid the damage/possible mess-ups that could occur with a color change.

For reference, my hair looks very similar to the image >>55827

No. 55866

Let it grow out, but it would be best to cut all of the bleached hair off. Even if it isn't especially damaged, it's weaker than your virgin hair.

No. 55870

I'm not going to chop off twelve inches of my hair lol but thanks

No. 55872


I don't think they meant all at once. Just cut like a inch every couple months and before you know it you'd have grown out the bleached hair.

I did this with my damaged hair for a while, but I got tired of small cuts so eventually I just chopped the rest off.

I've had blackbrown-black hair for approx 8 years (naturally blonde) and I want to eventually go to a ashy brown. I dye my roots once every 2nd month(very rarely use heat shit etc) so it's in pretty good shape considering the circumstances.

I will probably go to a salon to get it professionally done, but do you guys have any tips for what I can do before/in between the dye-jobs to make the process faster and better?

No. 56143

I have really fine and soft hair, but it isn't thin, and it gets horrifically greasy within 2 days. I've done a lot of those stupid "healthy hair DIY" masks and it just doesn't help with my grease.
I also can't style my hair for shit since it just falls out of ponytail holders and it can't hold a curl at all.
I just want to shave it all off.

No. 56146

Have you tried out the root touch-up dyes? I know they're marketed more towards graying hair but I don't see why it wouldn't work just as well for blond hair in between salon visits.

No. 56147

Use a good conditioner, some hair masks maybe etc.

No. 56155

Probably if you used one of those dye removers it would take most of the color out (especially if you're natural blonde), meaning the hairdresser wouldn't have to bleach it out, and you would end up with the same color and much less damage. I got my hair from blue-black to natural auburn with only two boxes and it felt great. Those things STINK though, they have lots of sulfur.
Otherwise do everything you can to preserve the health of your hair like:
sleep in a hair net
get a silk pillowcase
don't cook it in the sun
trim ends regularly, and keep them braided and away from the general environment
when you use a hair mask, pat hair dry with a t shirt, apply mask, then cover it with a shower cap to let it soak in. if you don't have a shower cap i just use cling film

No. 56156

Sound like you could use a scalp toner anon. I was reading on an Asian beauty reddit people started using a face toner for oily skin on their scalp, and it made their hair so much less greasy. Which makes sense since scalp is skin, so maybe try treating your scalp as if you had really oily face skin. As for DIY things you could try diluted witch hazel in a spray bottle.

No. 56164

Question for anons: Have any of you naturally gone from a dark hair color to a lighter one?

My hair used to be dark brown, and suddenly in my late twenties it's coming in dark-medium blonde. I took a photo yesterday and compared it to a similar photo from 2 years ago, and my hair is drastically lighter. I'm pretty happy about it, but I only ever heard of blonde hair turning brown, not the other way around. I'm not sure if this is a precursor to going prematurely grey or is a result of vitamins/keratin treatments. Any anons have experience with this?

No. 56208

Hey anon, I don't have a weave but my mother has had one for the past 10 years or so. You shouldn't be nervous! Weaves usually look really good imo, BUT be wary about doing them too much – they pull your root hair and can cause balding.

i need major hair help. it's damp in these pics so it's usually curlier when dry and even longer when i straighten it. though thin, i have quite a lot of it.

i've been growing it out for years and while i love it it's just not practical. i work in hospitality so it has to be pulled back. i usually do a top bun (which makes me look like i'm balding) or a long braid down the back. i'm sick of both of those and the top knot hurts my hairline and i feel like it's making my forehead even bigger lol.

as you can see i have a massive forehead and square face. the obvious answer is bangs but my problem with that is what kind? i can't really do blunt bangs because that would be too much work and they would just frizz up in my sweat on my face when i work.

ideally i'd like some bangs or at least front pieces i can pull out to frame my face. but idk if i have too much hair or what but any pony i try just hurts my head and gets all over the place. maybe i'm just not good at styling it.

i'm also afraid it's kaka levels of limp and gross, so there's that

What can I do for my disaster of hair? They're naturally shapeless (not straight, not curly, just an uneven mess) and if it was this alone I'd be like "Okay, I can just straighten it or something", but no.
It's frizzy as fuck, like, I straighten it and it only takes a bit of humidity in my own home to make the frizz monster come back. My hair also look dull and damaged, even though they're not dyed nor stressed out with treatments/heat.
I know it may seem a basic, almost dumb question, but please send me advice. Some anti-frizz product that works, DIY masks, anything that works. For example, I noticed that when I get out of my hairdresser my hair look nice, soft, bright and all good things. So it's a matter of products, I think.

i think that is the best bet. ty.

lol i know it is super weird that a lot of us have big foreheads, idk, maybe that's why we hate on them so much for it lmao

ty, i just have been feeling insecure about it lately. i think i will try the bangs

i'm the anon above with the long hair and while it looks shit in that picture (it was damp) it's actually really healthy despite it's long length. BUT it's a pain in the ass to maintain.

a lot of people recommend sulfate/silicone free but i tried those for like 2 years and they made my hair worse so keep in mind your hair type and that those may not work for everyone.

what i do is: wash only once or twice a week with shampoo, the rest of the time wash with water and follow with conditioner on the ends(or dont wet at all). dry shampoo will be your friend.

whenever you can, like if you get home in the afternoon and aren't leaving the house til the next day, put a hair mask in and leave in overnight or til that night. it can be DIY like olive or coconut oil or a drugstore mask or nice salon mask. i've used em all and tbh i don't think the salon ones are worth it. anyway, just keep that in for at least a few hours, wash out, and follow with condtiioner.

also, when you condition, leave a little bit in. don't rinse out all the way.

dry hair with a microfibre towel (i like the turbie twist thing) and don't rub it. air dry whenever possible. i also follow with treatment sprays when my hair is wet after a shower.

it is a lot of work tbh but it's made it so that the damage is gone.

honestly it sounds like a big part of the issue for you is environment (humidity) so i would definitely use a styling product with silicones to seal the cuticle and a gentle hairspray. that should help a bit, along with keeping it healthy as possible.

No worries anon. I went for most my life with shitty hair without realizing what a difference product makes. I used to use dollar store shampoo and conditioner and it just made things worse. OGX shampoos and conditioners are a cheap way to go sulfate/paraban free if you are interested although as >>56658 said it all depends on your hair.

Before starting keratin treatments (reallyyyy cheap to perform at home if you trust yourself to be careful aka not pour on your scalp/follow instructions), I read all these horror stories of people going bald or burning their hair. I was scared, but for me keratin is just what my hair needs! I have long hair around the same length as >>56658 and also wash 2-3 times per week, but blow dry/straighten or curl almost every day. It's in 10x better condition than before I started doing all this stuff so I'd recommend perhaps giving her method a try first and then if it doesn't work, trying mine.

For reference, here's what my hair looks like now after straightening (not my pic obviously, but only takes 5 minutes to straighten like this with the keratin products I use)

Here's what my hair used to look like (color, texture etc – the keratin lightened my hair, as I said and since it needs to be redone on all your hair, it creates an ombre effect), so you can compare it to >>56642 and your own hair to see maybe which treatment might work best for you. Hope this helps and good luck anon!

No. 56662

I have very similar hair and I have to admit it's a nightmare situation.

The first thing you have to decide is whether you want to have straight hair or to nurture your natural curls/waves, since both need/use very different care equipment.

I'm a lazy asshole so my go to is either forking over the money for the 7 month keratin treatments so my hair is pin straight with no heat, which I don't do regularly. Or I focus on developing my waves and do a no fuss system of washing once a week (I have a slow oil production so I can get away with it) and in the shower use regular shampoo but I try to get a nice argan oil conditioner and I slather that on, like I go through x3 the amount of conditioner I go through compared to shampoo. Then I leave it in for a long time and wash it out. As soon as I get out I dry my hair a little with a towel and immediately comb it. I also try to use a nourishing serum while combing, either coconut oil or I test out random brands (John Frieda frizz ease is my favourite serum to put in). Then I separate my bangs and put them in a roller, and braid the rest in two pigtails and let it dry overnight (I only wash my hair at night). Some days I take it farther and will pin the braids to my head or do pin curls and wrap everything in a scarf so that the serum I used really works and I end up with really shiny and wavy pretty hair the next day. Oh and I take the curler out of my bangs when they get dry (usually 20 mins out of the shower) and let them settle overnight so it isn't crazy 80s bangs. I try to use heat as little as possible and it really does look nice and luscious like beach waves. Oh and I only brush my hair every 2/3 days.

If you want to emphasize your curls and waves, you basically have to do a similar washing style, but then try to comb the hair in the shower. Then when you get out dry your hair with a cotton shirt and get a good curling mousse (currently trying to find a good brand for me). You can also add a serum for curly hair before or after the mousse to keep moisture in. Do all of this bending over while scrunching your hair. You will notice wavy larger strands of hair starting to form. Those are your natural curl patterns and you have to make sure not to separate them so they don't become frizzy messes. Add some more mousse/serum to those wave strands by lightly running over them, you want to manipulate them as little as possible. Then just go about and let your hair air dry. This works better for me during the day because then my head doesn't flatten the curls at night. Depending on your mousse you might end up with normal curls or crunchy ones. Those need to be worked out a bit so they aren't gross sticky curls with product. But you end up with really pretty wavy curly hair with lots of volume.

No. 56664

Oh and if you decide to try the curly method, don't touch a comb/brush outside of shower time. It will comb out your curls into s frizzy lions mane.

No. 56666

Not that anon but I've tried "not touching a brush," but I get hardcore knots underneath my hair if I let it go all day without a brush. I try to go until bedtime without brushing or combing but I will literally have mats under my hair. (My hair is very thick, wavy and fine.) Any remedies for this?

No. 56676

Your hair sounds like mine. You can use a detangling comb in the shower while the conditioner (preferably one with a lot of slip) is still in it. That helps, but I would still get the giant knots that would take a ton of detangling spray to undo.

No. 56685

The anon who talked about the no-brushing here;
I used to get really bad knots and tbh I chopped off my hair (it was thigh length) to shoulder length because most of my knots were caused by just damaged hair due to lack of care. I haven't gotten them since. Oh and a big contributor to my damage/knots was that I was really self conscious of my hair so it was always in a low ponytail and I got the knots from the area around the hair tie, so maybe you're doing something similar that is contributing?

Or if yours just happen you just can't do the no brush method. It'll be annoying but everyone is different and you're just someone who has to brush your hair, nothing wrong with that. I would say try getting a brush or comb that is veriy uninvasive, and you might just have to spend a long time drying and straightening your hair once or a couple of times a week so you can brush it while it is straightened.

No. 56691

I wouldn't do this, doing that to your hair while it's wet is way more damaging. Use a leave in conditioner and brush it dry instead.

As for a solution for doing no-brush, I don't really know of one. I have fine, straight hair so i can pretty much go no-brush as long as my hair isn't damaged.

No. 56697

Thank you all, I'm going to try your methods :) Any product/brand advice is more than welcome.
Also >>56642 your hair looks way better than mine, you seem to have some nice volume and texture, while I noticed that even though my hair seems all big when it's frizzy (like in >>56660 but sometimes even worse) it actually is kinda fine and has little to no volume (not Kiki/Kota tier, but not thick either).

Guys, I really don't know whether to cut my hair or not.

At the moment it comes down past my bellybutton to my hip bones and I've always liked my long hair but lately I've kinda become bored with it. I have a lot of it, but it's fine and dead straight so I often have trouble getting it as voluminous as I want.

I'm thinking of getting something like pic related, but I'm really afraid it will look flat and gross. I dig the voluminous, textured look.
My hair has been long for years so I'm also scared of regretting it if it ends up looking like shit. I've done that a lot in the past just cutting my bangs.

I don't really know how to describe my face shape. Like a soft square maybe? My jaw kind of comes out slightly wide but I have high cheekbones that stick out so my forehead/jaw/cheekbones aren't all aligned straight. My chin is pretty small and not pointed either.
All I know is straight bangs look awful on me and make my face look huge.

No. 56725

Shorter hair tends to be better for fine hair. Not super short if you don't want, but definitely not super long. The weight of your hair will pull it down and make it lay flatter against your scalp. It's easier to texturise and volumise shorter hair because you're up against less weight.

Once your hair hits your collarbones shoulders, there's no real difference in how flattering it is on your face if it's the same style. Layered hip-length hair will be as flattering as layered chest-length hair.

My advice would be to go shorter but maybe compromise and cut it to chest length with subtle layers. You'll get rid of some of the weight and get an opportunity to see how this changes styling but you won't have a hugely different style that you'll hate. If you're feeling brave, go for it though!

To add some texture or volume, try wax instead of gel, a salt spray or blow dry some volume into it. Don't wash it everyday and don't weight it down with too much product or product that's too heavy.

No. 56727

Thank you for replying!

I think cutting to chest length is a good idea. I even like how chin length looks in the same style as the picture I attached, but I wouldn't go that far, at least not just yet.
But I've lived with long, heavy hair for so long and I'm so over it looking flat all the time! If it needs to be chopped off to get some bounce and fullness back into it, then so be it. I figure if Marzia/PewDiePie's gf can do it and look great, then hopefully there's a chance for me.
Thanks for the advice!

A friend of mine has long curly hair too, and when she was a teen she used to have bangs. It did look awful, because she straightened her bangs (obviously) but not the rest of her hair, so I just let you imagine how it did look like.

if your hair is naturally near black then all the bleach its taken to get your color this light has probably just killed it - esp if naturally it was really dry/frizzy to begin with. it looks like there's a ton of breakage which you cant do anything about really. the only way itll actually be healthy is if you chop it off and grow it out again, but if you want the hair you have now to just -look- healthier just wash with cold water, use a moisturizing shampoo/conditioner, do the occasional hair mask and use some kind of hair lotion/leave in conditioner and an oil after each wash.

I'm really scared to go back to black, I've always felt like my natural hair has swamped me and I wear a lot of black so it's made me feel like a nun

Are there alternatives so I can have lighter hair?

No. 57003

you don't have to go back completely to black, but adding any kind of pigment (dying it something darker) back into your hair after stripping it (bleaching) will help, even if its just a couple shades darker, plus in general darker hair hides damage better. All the hair on your head more than likely wont ever be all that healthy, so your best bet if you want to keep it would be to focus on making it look good + babying it to prevent further damage. if you want to continue having light hair i suggest either 1. going to a professional to have them lighten your roots for you (and dye your hair if they offer the color you want) or 2. if youre doing it yourself do it in like 2-3 steps over the course of a couple weeks/months. ive also heard of people putting coconut oil in their hair before bleaching to help minimize damage. a couple extra tips on babying damaged hair would be to dry it in a cotton teeshirt after your shower(softer on hair), dont brush it when when wet, dont wear it in tight updos and avoid heat styling like the plague. i have like 7 inches of hair right now thats probably in a similar health condition to yours and doing all that + what i listed in >>56999
makes it look a thousand times better

No. 57004

Just go to a professional. I guarantee anything else you do from here short of buzzing it off will not make things better, if not make it worse. Your hair looks completely fried and box dye is the worst thing you could do to it right now.

Ok, so here's my advice:
-OLAPLEX, seriously, if you can find a salon near you, a professional Olaplex treatment will help immensely. If you don't have the money for that, see if you can at least get a hold of the #3 treatment. (Make sure to apply it on damp and DIRTY hair for at least 4 hours). I honestly thought this shit was a scam until I tried it. It's not gonna make you feel more moisturizer btw, but it'll help reseal the cuticles.

-Invest in a nice, moisturizing, gentle shampoo. Conditioners and oils and leave ins are great, but you'll lose their effects if you're using a subpar shampoo. I really recommend Loma, Moroccan Oil, and Colorproof.

-Learn to blow dry properly with a round brush. I know everyone always says to avoid heat, but honestly once you damage it you're never going to be able to hide that damage without a little styling. Full stop. Use a good leave in cream with heat protection and maybe a light hold. Dry with a paddle brush until mostly dry, detangle, clip into sections and work through piece by piece with the round brush. To prolong the style, sleep in braids or loose ponys and try to use a satin pillow case.

Pic related: I went from dark brown, to white, to various blondes, to auburn and managed to keep my hair's integrity. These things really helped me.

No. 57036

Well you don't want to bleach it out anymore, it's already pretty wrecked. Like the other anon said honestly your best bet is to get to a professional regularly and see what they can do for you to salvage your hair and make it look as good as possible until the damage grows out and continue having them do your dye job beyond that as well, because it's just going to look better than box dye. If you can't afford professional help, condition as much as possible, avoid shampooing except when dirty/greasy, and use leave-in conditioner afterwards. Try to avoid heat as much as you can. Deep condition/mask once or twice a week.

As for going dark to hide the damage - again, box dye is just adding more damage to your hair. If you're really strapped for cash try going to a cosmetology hair school, they're much cheaper and since going dark is pretty standard, they're not going to mess up your hair.

No. 57042

Love your hair in the 2nd (right) pic anon.

Not >>57008
but I believe Olaplex is generally used to help prevent damage when bleaching hair (used during and after bleaching). Japanese straight perm makes hair stick straight (forever) and keratin smooths hair (removes frizz and makes hair healthier, but washes out over time).

I researched Olaplex, but never tried it because of the price, but if you are going to bleach your hair regularly or more than 2 shades from your natural color, it's probably a good investment.

Your hair looks really damaged, but not much more than mine used to be. Like you, my hair was naturally dry and frizzy even if I didn't dye or bleach it.

anon and just use keratin treatments (do it myself) and "nicer" hair products (basically anything without sulfates/parabens and with keratin or something smoothing). I didn't have to cut all my hair off like some people suggest. The keratin cured my hair amazingly, and as a plus it grows in a dark/medium blonde color now (from dark brown)…AND it comes in oily, when it used to be dry my entire life. You might want to trim the ends of your hair to prevent split ends moving further up the strands, but again, you can just do that yourself with a professional pair of hair scissors.

If you don't want to have to pay salon prices for everything and keep dying your own hair, I am with you (no idea how you feel about this, but sounds like you enjoy dying your own hair like I do). I stopped going to salons completely because they always fucked up my hair (even the expensive ones). Bleaching your own hair (properly) will be a lot less damaging than most salons imo.

Like >>57008 recommended, definitely try the Olaplex if you can afford it. If not, then you can use coconut oil (saturate hair 2 hours before bleaching, then apply bleach OVER the coconut oil in your hair). This can come out a little brassy, but it seems you already like warmer hair tones, so shouldn't be an issue. Likewise, if you want to be extra gentle with your hair, then try getting highlights every few weeks until you lighten to a color you like. THEN dye it that pink/red color. Make sure not to wash your hair for like 3 days prior to bleaching too. BTW, when giving yourself highlights, there is really no reason to go platinum and then tone down if you'll be dying your hair a warm tone anyway. Just lighten to a tone that would be nice for dying a red/pink color (obviously the lighter the hair, the brighter the color). Good luck!!

No. 57043

Olaplex is a treatment to help repair damage. It won't straighten or smooth your hair if it's naturally curly or wavy. Essentially what it's doing is reconnecting broken bonds in the hair without heat or extra damage. The professional steps are sometimes mixed into due and bleach mixtures to help keep the integrity of the hair while the chemical process is going on.

So if your frizz is from damage the Olaplex can help because of its repairitive properties. Otherwise if the frizz is just "natural" it's probably just a sign of dehydration and improper curl maintenance. Thick or thin hair isn't really an issue with this treatment.

As someone who used to have naturally dark hair (my hair grows in lighter now), I used to bleach it blonde and it was always healthy. UNTIL the hair salons started changing the way they bleached my hair. Suddenly my hair was fried and I had to cut it all off.

I noticed the difference is that they used to lift my hair to the desired color, and then wash it out. Now it seems impossible to find a place that does this: they make your hair literally white and then tone it darker. Of course this means my hair is over-processed afterward. My hair not only used to look natural (because the tone matched my natural tone, only lighter), but it was also soft. I'd recommend just bleaching your own hair with some olaplex to be honest. Watch some videos on youtube, it's pretty easy to do. I stopped going to hair salons completely and now do all my own hair treatments, and my hair looks wayyy better than it does when I leave the "professionals"

I'm not sure what the bleaching method is in Asia to bring black hair blonde. Maybe someone else can answer this though.

You can use a heat protectant spray. Honestly, if you are only going to be using it like once a month or less I doubt you have anything to worry about. Also, don't use on wet hair and make sure to get a decent brand.

One suggestion most people probably don't think of is to buy heat protection ear covers. I use these when I do my hair to prevent accidentally burning my ears lol (I straighten my hair a lot).

Hope you guys don't mind that I have some questions, I'm a noob at this.
So I have dark brown hair and am a total hair virgin, I've always had my natural hair color and never really tried extensions or anything (most I did was dreadlocks and curls)
But I'm a sucker for the pastel look (awful, I know) and I think it would be a shame to bleach my virgin hair completely so I was looking into the ombre coloring thing.
Would it be best to do this with extensions or ask my hair dresser to bleach and dye it this way? Wich method would look better and/or be easier? Will extensions give the same effect or will it look extremely fake? And is it true that you have to dye your hair every week if you want to keep the pastel in? Also, if I ever wanted to go back to my natural hair color, would it still be hard to do like with full bleaching/dying?

I use castor oil for quite some time. Daily for about 2 months maybe, now just occassionally. It definitely darkens your hair, so if you're a (dark) blonde like me, it's worth using just for that. It strenghtens the hair, its life span is longer - no weak lashes falling out when removing makeup, for example. Speaking about eyebrows, hair's growing faster, got darker, but they're not fuller.
Bretman's eyebrows got so miraculously full because he had them full before; he just abused plucking.

I just smear it on my lashes with my finger lol. I've been using cleaned mascara wand but now I'm too lazy, and the oil actually improves the state of my under eyes skin. So I find it quite beneficial that it's everywhere near the eye area
It doesn't get into your eyes if you're using right amount, it stays on lashes. If you use too much, it drips and possibly hits your eyes. So just don't use too much.

i have 2C curly-wavy hair with fine individual strands, but i do have a good amount of hair on my head. it's prone to frizz, but it doesn't curl so much when it's shorter or a few days after it's washed.

It's not too uncommon. Hair texture can change as you grow, esp in teens. I know someone who went from straight hair to heavy curls in their teens.

It can also be because of hair length (longer hair is heavier and the curls may seem less 'dense').

Dying your hair can also change your hair texture, but the hair that grows out after isn't affected by that though.

I second short side swept bangs. I have very fine hair with loose waves too. It's too thin to pull off straight bangs but they look thick when pushed to the side. From my experience, side swept bangs with some face framing pieces will make you look like you have way more hair than you actually do and possibly slim out your face. I have an egg head and a man jaw and it does wonders for me. I do have to straighten my bangs every day since they flip out weird but it's worth the few minutes of my time imo.

if you already have a round, kinda chubby face, i dont think this haircut is a good idea at all. it makes the girl in the picture look like a round mushroom so i cant imagine it would look too splendid on you.

The circled red is what my hair is, and the circled blue is what I want.

I've wanted to be blonde for a while, but I HATE dark roots with a passion, and I have fine hair and I'm so scared of my hair being fried if I go blonde. Im willing to go to a good salon, but I'm worried even a good salon can't avoid frying my hair.

Also, my eyebrows are very dark.
Have any other anons had a blackish to blonde change, and how did it go? I'm not planning on doing a box job, because it seems like a guaranteed way to destroy my hair.

No. 60353

Not blonde but something similar

I went from black (box dyed, 5-7 years) to brown (kind of a golden brown like your pic, but wanted red but that's not really important). My hair is almost Kiki tire thin and it past boob length. The whole process took around 6 hours and a bit less than half of my hair was cut off.
Since I used box dye, it was a bit lighter on some part and darker on others lol. Some parts actually turned blonde, like the lower part on the back of my head. The hair itself was kind of coarse, rough, dry feeling but they gave me a really good, moisturizing hair mask that fixed it within a few months.

If you don't dye your hair you should have it waaay easier than me and maybe even go blonde in one sitting. But expect maybe two because of damage or whatever. Just take good care of your hair after bleaching and you should be fine.

You could slowly lighten your hair using highlights if you are worried about damage.

Your hair is naturally very dark, so you are going to have dark roots, no way around that.

With that said, I also have fine hair that lightens quickly and lighten it a couple shades. Even good salons fry my hair. I'd personally recommend DIY kits, that's what I do now. It's the easiest way to avoid your hair frying if you can trust yourself, because once your hair is fried it's fried. You can mask the damage, but never truly repair your hair.

dont do it. you're going to give yourself a hard time in all areas of your life and be a laughing stock which WILL get to you eventually especially if you already have mood problems. yolandi's kind of a celebrity so it's just not the same. it looks like a "im 16 and in an awkward phase" haircut on a normal person.

theres tons of ways to look "interesting" without destroying your hair in one of the worst ways possible. you'll most likely regret it afterwards and feel even worse. imagine growing that shit out when you're older.

dont take it out on yourself. if you feel destructive and fidgety go punch a pillow or kick some ass in a video game. hell, buy those glitter slimes on etsy and play with them if you have to take your mind of things.

I get that, I shaved my head clean once in the middle of a breakdown (yeah, yeah, give me those Britney jokes) and regretted it for about a year afterwards.

Does anyone here have any experience growing out their hair?

I got a bad cut and it's been my kind of wake up call to realize that I just want long hair without the maintenance of bangs and short cuts.

My hair now is about armpit length with choppy bangs that I have to pin back. I want to get it down to at least waist length, which will probably take about two years, right?

My current plan is to not use any heat styling unless it's a very special occasion, or just a short blast from the blow dryer during the winter when it's too cold to walk around with wet hair. I'm also not going to color or bleach it, of course. I'm planning on washing it only about three times a week, and use oil treatments and masks on my hair regularly. I'm also taking vitamins and making sure my diet is healthy, as well as staying hydrated and exercising.

Is my plan solid? Have you ever tried to grow your hair out? How did it go? Was it easier after the awkward stage? Thanks guys.

So I looked for Yolandi inspired haircuts that are less extreme and I found this pic. I don't like it, it looks kind of half assed.

No. 60445

you'll hear different opinions on that but imo no. Only when you need to get rid of heavy grease or wash off all of builded up proteins and such.
Actually, it's not necessary to wash your HAIR with shampoo too often. It's drying and ripping off good protective stuff (sorry for my lack of proper wording). Just shampoo your scalp, and when you wash it off, your hair gets washed a bit too. For example, I wet my hair, put on a mask or conditioner, wash my scalp with a shampoo WITHOUT washing off my mask/conditioner so it protects my hair from the shampoo. Then I wash it all and use my favourite conditioner again.
My hair has never looked better, tbh

apologies for rant but we studied the horrible effects of accutane in aesthetics school lol

No. 60486

Anon, take it into consideration carefully and try going for it in steps. Try bettie bangs instead (A shorter style of bang than usual that isn't as drastic as Yolandi's).

You also picked the worst pic of Yolandi you could've possibly grabbed for your example, ouch.

Just google image bettie bangs or bettie page herself. I suggest taking them longer at first and gradually move them up and see how you feel.

All in all remember: Your hair WILL grow back but the shorter you take it, the longer it will take to return. Take it slowly.

I personally just cut some short styled bettie bangs and I love them but i can only wear my hair a couple of ways when I'm lazy or i look retarded. It's a very high maintenance style if you don't have the facial structure to pull it off bare-faced/messyhaired (I do not).

Luckily my hair grows fast so it'll be a more normal (and thus, easier to hide when i'm lazy as fuck) in a few weeks but i also am basically hikkikomori status so it's kind of irrelevant anyway.

If you HAVE to leave your house often, don't take the risk anon.

Don't take the risk if you don't have any idea of how to cut your bangs or you'll probably fuck them up. If you find a good stylist they'll do what you want.

No. 60487

I think going with any drastic bangs is usually a safe bet. It's easy enough to hide them (Pinning them back, headband, whatever you choose, or even changing your hair part can hide it for awhile. Did that with my sidecut when i stupidly tried that out) and your bangs will usually appear to grow faster than the rest of your head so it's not as agonizing as an all over cut if you hate it.

I don't think the pic is bad. It's a candid one that's not photoshopped and the hair isn't styled so much.
Also Betty bangs aren't what she's got, half her hair is cut short, she doesn't just have bangs starting at the crown or sth. Bangs would be a compromise though, instead of going full mullet from 0 to 100.

My bone structure is pretty good, I think I could pull it off. I've just been sporting really boring hair my entire life so it's going to be jarring no matter what.
Funny you mention your hiki tendencies because we're in the same boat there. I'm no NEAT but what I do allows me to stay indoors for months sometimes so maybe I can fuck up my hair idk. I feel like I've got to do it once in my life.

Accutane was fucking amazing for my hair. It didn't last though, maybe it permanently decreased the oil production a little but when I was actually on it I could go nearly a fortnight without my hair getting greasy.

Source? It causes birth defects but only if you're pregnant, and you have to get regular blood tests to ensure that you aren't. Never heard about the sterility thing.

Honestly, accutane was the best thing I ever did for my self esteem and appearance. The only regret I have is waiting so long because I listened to paranoia about supposed horrific side effects and was too scared to try it. Cystic acne doesn't have to cover 'every inch of your skin' to make you miserable, people who are dealing with it shouldn't be afraid to try accutane with a derm monitoring their usage.

Yeah her hair is shaved short on top to create her bangs, with slightly longer layers on top. You could do it home with someone elses help or go to a highend salon but its likely they will just give you mircobangs instead of shaving, and it could come out looking too 'clean'

No. 60506

Yeah that's what I feared about getting it done at a salon. They take the shit to seriously and make it all accurate and neat.

You could try and at least do the bangs by yourself to start, I feel like that would be easier without someone's help.

That's actually the closest to Yolandi's I've seen. The dreads are pretty gross but it's helpful to get a good look of the top of the haircut. Also helps to see how that grows out in her newer videos. Girl needs to lose some weight, though.

No. 60520

I still haven't figured out exactly what the best way to cut this would be. Maybe tie back the entire lenght at the crown, behind the ears?

Those are quite obviously clip in bangs anon, her real hair is tied back and the bangs and side pieces are clipped onto it.
If you want them for real I suggest playing around with it by tucking different amounts of hair behind your ears and see what you like best, then just cut them shorter

No. 60555

It's called a hime cut, and you want to be REALLY careful with that. It typically rounds the face, and the longer ones hide your jaw, it doesn't make your face look slimmer.

You want to avoid anything that hits cheek to jaw if you want to make your face look slimmer. If you REALLY want them I guess start with a layer that starts just past your chin.

Collagen stuff doesn't work but I found that Biotin and Vitamin D helps a lot. Lots of women if not most in the northern hemisphere have Vitamin D deficiency. Get yours checked.

I've been looking around for tips to keeping hair colors to stick around, I pay around $200 or more to get my hair done at a nice place as I have the most inconvenient hair, so I'd like to know more.

So far I wash my hair with cold water only, have color protecting cleansing conditioner that I don't leave on too long, don't use any heat either. Is there anymore I can do to keep it from fading? Or should I just give up and go back to my natural hair?
>tfw you pay way too much to upkeep your hair
>getting anything fun done at a salon takes at LEAST 3+ hours
>hair cuts take about a full hour

There's a point when your hair is just too thick and mine has passed that by 100x. It looks pretty yeah, but I put a crap ton of time and effort to keep it that way. I've just learned about diffusers for curly hair and I've upset I've never heard of it before. My hair isn't as heavily curled as most that use it but it works perfectly with my hair.
Does anyone else know this feel? Almost all my family has thin straight hair besides me. I've had people come up to me and just touch my hair without asking basically my whole life, I've even had some people be rude to me because she thought I lied to her about not wearing extensions.

I've never had trouble with natural colors staying in my hair so I want some clarification, do you mean unnatural colors at all? What color if it's natural?

I read once somewhere color-protecting shampoos/conditioners can actually make the situation worse, but this likely varies by brand. What brand do you use?

That said, all color fades eventually, even natural colors. For unnatural colors, the color you choose can have a big impact on how fast/slow it fades, and the brand of haircolor can impact this too (do you know what brand your stylist uses?)

Also $200 sounds like way too much but i also have always been a cheapass and just done my hair myself (So i've lived through all of the shittiest mistakes from too-short bangs to ugly colors to bad bleach jobs)
It'll depend on the brand but i usually see that being labeled as auburn.

No. 61195

I have the same problem, only I don't have OCD and didn't pick out my hair. My hair has always been in the thin side and very fine, plus I have a high forehead (my asshole brother once said it looked like a receding hairline when I was getting my hair dyed), but I rarely dyed back then, and never now.

Anyway, around 2011 or 2012, I started getting hair fall far more frequently than I'd ever had before. I used to part my hair down the middle, but after a while, so much scalp began to show, that I had to start parting it off to the side more. I went to my doctor at the time, and he said it was stress. At the time, it may have been stress that helped aggravate it. But five years later, and my hair isn't nearly back to the fullness it was when I was younger.

I've looked around online at possible causes. Trying biotin didn't seem to work, and only made me break out more often. I began to find stuff linking antidepressants to hair loss in women, and I'm wondering if that is the root cause of the problem. I got my psychiatrist to switch me from Prozac to another antidepressant, but I don't think the newer one is helping with the hair loss. I'm almost tempted to go off the meds entirely, and see if it helps bring growth back, but I know I'll get more depressed if I do.

I feel fucked, basically. I don't know if a dermatologist can help or what. Not to mention I don't know how much a session with a dermatologist will cost.

Can you stop derailing just to show off how not retarded you are?

Cause it's not working

Yes. I cut mine too short so i've been dealing with it a few ways
>Avoiding leaving the house
>Hats (Sometimes too hot for that) just tuck whatever you have up there. Works with thick headbands too
>Bobbypin it to the side (mine are too short on the under layer)
>Spray em to the side
>Just style them properly and live with it
>Remember they'll grow back.
>Avoid the mirror as much as you can (You'll notice the difference in length more)

But there's nothing really besides trying to hide them or make them look better until they're long enough to get cut into the shape you want, or otherwise just left to the side to grow out to the rest of your hair length.

I mostly just shove mine to the side.

If they're the right length fauxhawking can work but that doesn't look good on everyone (Makes me look dykey but some look super cute with it)

Right now it is purple and pink ombre, it's been almost 2 months now and the purple seems to be sticking so far which is nice.

I use pic related, my hair is really strange and most shampoos/conditioners make my hair unmanageable.
My stylist I think uses aveda? I think that's what it's called. Yeah I can see how it seems expensive but I've been to around 5 different solans I stuck with for good amount of times in my life and all were the same price, it's more due to how long the appointments are, I have to be the last appointment because depending on what I do it can take up to 4 hours to do my whole head. Normal haircuts takes 1 hour at minimum, even when I cut it above my shoulders. I've had a lot of pissed off stylists because they didn't listen when I said how long it takes over the phone and they didn't schedule right. The girl I'm with now scheduled my first appointment for 30 mins and by the end I had 2 other people from the salon help blow drying my hair at once to finish it off since her other client showed up.
It's just extremely thick to the point it really is inconvenient, it gives me migraines sometimes due to the weight.

really the main thing is, does it suit your style? if your style is very vanilla, it might look ridiculous; see the trend of (for lack of better word) preppy girls putting pink streaks in their hair. if you're already alt-leaning, it'll automatically look better.

other things to consider; brightly coloured hair is more of an accessory than normal coloured hair is. if you wear a lot of colours, your hair might clash. like, when i did my hair super bright red, it was so hard to find a red lipstick that looked good on me because it had to go with my hair, my skintone, and my outfit. imo this is i think why goths look best with brightly coloured hair; when you're wearing all black all the time, it's a pop of colour for contrast

people will treat you a little differently from a glance, yeah, but for me it's fun to show people that their first impressions are totally wrong. i also have piercings and tattoos, though, so i'm going to get those looks no matter what colour my hair is

overall tho, if it's something you've always been wanting to do, do it! it's not irreversible. if you really hate it or get a lot of flack for it, dye it back.

My hair is fucking ruined from going pink.
actually, it wasn't pink that was the problem- i had it for about two years. i decided i wanted to go blonde, and instead of stopping and telling me they couldn't do it, the salon ruined my hair. i ended up having to dye it black and cut it above my shoulders. my hair was brittle and falling out, and when damp it felt like noodles.
i was so depressed with how i looked, ie dned up getting extensions. yes, i know, they're bad for your hair- but you can't imagine how horrible i looked. i just want my hair to grow out. and it is! i've had my extensions for almost a year, but my hair grows slow.

today i went to my hair stylist (a different one than the bleach lady) to get my extensions redone. somehow, six inches of my weave disappeared. i was sat there for 4 hours, but i wasn't facing the mirror so i didn't see it. my extensions are so short now, it looks almost like my hair before i got them. they're less thick too. i have no idea what happened. i should've said something while i was there but i was so in shock and trying to convince myself that maybe when i style it myself it'll look better.
so now im depressed about my hair again. i don't regret having pink hair, but i regret ever trying to go blonde- that's what ruined my hair. fuck. i just wish my hair was long again!!

Sage for samefagging but I also think you should look into curl defining products. If you have waves, there's tons of serums/mists/sprays/mousses that are lightweight and meant specifically for wavy hair. Won't weigh your hair down either.

Hey, I've never dyed my hair before but I'm thinking about getting pic related so I hoped you guys could answer some of my questions:

I've read that unnatural colors only last a few showers: Once they're "gone" will it look just blond or will it still have the color but more faded? I'm asking bc I've heard getting your hair dyed is quite expensive and if it's only gonna last like a week or two then that wouldn't be worth it to me. I kinda like the faded (like in the pic) look more, so will a hue like this stay longer?

No. 62656


no, actually darker colors will stay longer, but never fade into metallic-pastel tones like this . pic related will yellow out after 2 washes, 1 if you're using hot water. you can always refresh it in the shower with dye mixed into hair conditioner, but you'll lose the color nuance if you have any.

i recommend getting a good semi-permanent dye in a bright, strong color like fuschsia, forest green, dark blue etc., keeping it in your hair 4-5 hours, washing it off with cool water and not washing your hair for one week after dying your hair, if you can manage it. afterwards washing your hair with cold water will help the color stay longer.

So I've never dyed my hair before and I've always had a fancy to just go black. I already have dark brown hair that's pretty thick and curly, and when curled it falls slightly past my shoulders. I do tend to blow out and flat iron my hair at least once a month at times, if that makes a difference. My gut is telling me that I need to go to a pro to get it done because the last thing I want to do is ruin my hair. However, am I breaking the bank for no reason if I go to a salon, especially since I'm going darker with no intention of going light?

You could also go to a school of beauty (or whatever they are called)
Bleached my hair there recently only 20 bucks and the result was as good as any other professional.
So if you are concerned about the money try that out. They also have their teachers there all the time and they make sure that the person doing your hair is capable of doing it.

I'm going to piggyback this to reassure you (further). I'm a cosmetology student and at my school, the teachers keep an incredibly watchful eye. In addition to this, absolutely everything we do has to be okay'd before we can move on to the next step. After the service is complete, the teacher takes one last look, then you're on your way!

burgundy is worn regularly by older ladies in the incredibly conservative third world hellhole that i live. chocholate cherry is basically a brownish deep red. it's a basic bitch color. they lost their "novelty" long ago and neither of them are considered particularly outlandish.

I'm a lot like you, naturally thick, shoulder-length dark brown hair (although mine is wavy, not curly) and I recently dyed my hair black at home. It turned out great. You really don't need to go to a professional, although I'm a poorfag who hates salons so perhaps I'm biased.

It sounds intimidating dying your hair by yourself, but it's quite easy, at least to do one solid color. Plus, since your hair is already dark, any mistakes will be quite forgiving. Just watch a couple of YouTube videos if you're nervous about doing something wrong.

Good luck with your hair, though. I think black hair looks amazing and I never regret doing it on myself!

I've had my hair fried countless times, by hair stylists.

My hair lifts very, very quickly because the strands are so thin, but the majority of hair stylists are SLOW as hell. For some reason, many of them work on my left side and then finally when they get to my right side my left side is white. Likewise, despite stating I want highlights framing my face, my bangs and hair around my face is always left 2 shades darker than the rest of my hair by most of these people. I've tried cheap salons and expensive ones.

I lighten my own hair now. In fact, I also cut/smooth/olaplex etc etc. my own hair too and the results are much better than at the majority of salons I've been to. I'm not perfect yet, but at least my hair suits me better now and I save a lot of money.

I've watched a few korean videos of them dying their hair cool tones and I guess that's what you gotta do, otherwise you'll end up with a warm tone.

Blonde expert anons please help.

I've been dying my hair since I was 11. I was blonde as a kid and ended up with medium or light brown hair. I was dying my hair black for years and was always told that when I had my hair blonde it looked best. I'm told dark hair makes me look sick and corpse like.

I have my natural hair color now and am looking to go blonde. Is there a box dye (I know some anons will cringe at the thought) or something at Sally's you would recommend to go to a dark or medium blonde? I'm going gradually up a few shades till I get to a level 8 or 9. My shade now is about a level 5. Similar to the swatch in the pic at level 5.

I've heard good things about Wella dyes.

I have naturally #5 hair too, and lighten it to around #8 using at home highlighting kits (pic related – I've used a couple kinds and it doesn't matter much as it's just a thick bleach). These are better than at a stylist if you are happy with the undertone of your hair, and just want a lighter color. A lot of people like ashy tones like >>67935 so if your undertone is ashy, it will be a lighter ashy blonde. If your undertone is warm like mine, you can keep it or "tone" afterward or using Wella.

No. 68235


I'd recommend lightening to a level 5 and dying with a demi-permanent from wella. If you don't achieve a cool enough tone from just the dye, I think it's ion that makes an ash booster that'll up the cool tones. You only need the tiniest bit unless you really want navy blue hair. I made that mistake (on a test strand thank god) while I was trying to go from red to ash blonde.

I'm getting my hair colored like pic related (only more vibrant– I'll have my hair bleached first) in a couple weeks and I'm stoked. I've had colored streaks in my hair before, but I've never had anything as dramatic as this. When I had only one streak of color, I was able to tie off that portion of my hair in a plastic bag to prevent the color from fading in the shower; I could still wash my hair every two days, but I'd wash the colored portion maybe once or twice a week.

Guy Tang has a video called "Rose Gold Hair Tutorial" with his Mydentity line… The rose gold does look dark in the video and what you'd probably expect from a rose gold. It kind of sounds like she's inexperienced because everyone knows you cannot get ashy from gold.

What she did wrong was using the wrong color. Like I said above, you cannot get an ashy pink with rose gold. Rose Gold is warm. If you want it fixed try getting a colorist who knows the difference between warm and ashy hair.

In conclusion, look around and consult a colorist to fix it and knows her shit. You were the customer and it's your hair. If you said "ashy pink" she went right around and did the opposite of what you wanted.

Due to extreme stress and repeated physical and emotional trauma, my hair started falling out about a year ago. It got to the point where it was literally coming off in thick clumps whenever I touched it. Like hundreds of strands at a time, repeatedly, just coming out in my fingers. It gradually stopped getting worse about a month ago as my situation improved; now it still falls out some, but the intensity is less so.

But now my hair is brittle, dull, very frizzy, and the actual strands are thin and weak. I have slight bald spots visible over all my head you can see if I pull my hair back. The body and volume is so diminished that my curls now fall in about eight tiny little wispy clumps. It takes wrapping a new hairband three times to make a loose ponytail now. It hasn't grown in months.

This has seriously destroyed my entire sense of worth. My hair was my absolute favourite trait and what really made me stand out. I would get multiple compliments about it daily from random people. It was objectively very nice and unique. Now no one even looks at me when I go out and I know it's because of my fucking hair. I'm a vain person and it just kills me.

I'm tentatively hopeful that it isn't falling out as much now, but at 22, I'm terrified that it is never going to be anything like it was. Biotin or oils don't do anything in this case, the fanciest hair products don't help me. I tried, but the more fussing I do to it, the worse it gets. I read hair loss due to trauma can be irreversible and that there's nothing to do about it but wait and see. But I can't even stand looking in the mirror. I feel like that quote from the English dub of Howl's Moving Castle, 'What's the point in living if I can't be beautiful.'

Mainly I'm just venting. But I guess I'm asking if anyone has ever experienced something like this – hair loss due to trauma – and if you recovered from it, how long it took, etc.

No. 71005

Hi anon, I'm sorry to hear about all of that, I truly feel for you. I've experienced the same thing recently and it has been a slow progress ever since. After I was done freaking out about it, I decided to do something about it but stress about the hair less because it only makes it worse. I made a hair oil mix from castor oil and Indian gooseberry oil (you can use castor oil alone if you want) these two helped my hair before it was falling and made my eyelashes and eye brows grow and get thicker so I'm confident it'll help with my hair and could help with yours too. I apply it to the roots of my hair and use it as a mask on the rest of my hair the night before washing it. I also only wear my hair in protective hairstyles now, no ponytails or anything involving a hairband because it just causes more hair loss. I mainly wear it in just a braid. I had bald spots as a child and my mother used to rub garlic on them and it grew the hair back like sorcery. I haven't tried it yet but I might do it before showering for a couple of times and report back with results.

For now anon you could try clip in extentions or a wig to help your self esteem until your hair is good again. Keep eating well and taking vitamins, I've had hair loss due to stress and trauma twice now and it always came back. Don't give up and don't think about it too much. Also, maybe you could find something else to focus your vanity on for now? I'm sure you have features you overlooked when you had beautiful hair. Best of luck, anon.

hi all,

i'd like to go dark, as in black or espresso - but i never quite get the shade right.

my hair at the moment is really warm darkish auburn. it looks ok, but washes me out a bit since my natural hair is a little cooler.

with my natural colouring, i always seem to get dark colours wrong and end up looking grubby and dirty rather than pale and "creamy" if that makes sense?
i'm very pale but i think i might be olive toned - my eyes are olive green, too. pic related to give an idea of this.

Anything damaging really. Chemical processes or teasing can contribute. Do not let your ends "fairy tail" which is basically getting so thin that it ends up tapered. Get your ends microtrimmed, which is basically removing a very small amount of hair length. Only every 2-3 months.

When I had virgin hair it was long enough to pick up some pieces and search for strands that were split. I call that process search and destroy. Use very sharp scissors too meant for cutting hair and find individual strands you can cut that are split. I would often not find a split end for maybe 2 months because it worked really well not doing anything damaging.

Heatless styles can be your best friend anon.

i have a pixie cut with subtle face framing sections that go along my cheekbones and side swept layered emo bangs (lol). i think it makes me look pretty andro in the "could pass for either a college aged tomboy or a teenage twink" sense. i regret getting my bangs trimmed though tbh, i'm not as rigorous with washing my hair as i could be so i get a lot of forehead acne from them and if i wear a headband it somehow makes my forehead look way more massive than it actually is. i think the most important aspect of picking a hairstyle is your face shape, though, so maybe google "short hair for (face shape here)" and scope out the results before committing?

So I have long black hair but I don't want to ruin it with bleach. I want to find a good quality white wig instead. Human hair would be cool, but anything that is heat resistant is fine as well.

So I've had a left side parting for all my life, and recently I've noticed what seems like a small balding patch on the beginning of the parting line (after the forehead ends). Should I worry? Will it grow back? What can I do? Now I've parted my hair on the other side and will keep it like this for a good while. I wear my hair in ponytails some days of the week but they're never tight, and I've always had my hair down until 3 years ago.

Really hoping someone can come through because I'm desperate.

My hair is very, very thin. Like kiki-tier thinness. I'm not an anachan, and I've been tested extensively for hormone disorders or vitamin deficiences and my lab work always comes back normal. I am under an extreme amount of stress daily and have a pretty bad anxiety disorder on top of that so I'm pretty sure it mostly falls out due to stress and is almost half the density it used to be.

Right now I have no idea what to do with it. I've been trying to grow it out because I was just keeping it at chin length (since it was so fine and short) but I feel like that ages me terribly because it looks like thin old lady hair. Does anyone have ANY ideas for flattering hairstyles for very thin, very fine hair like kiki has? I also have similar breakage up front around my temples and bangs like in the second picture. But I have such little hair that bangs themselves might be a bad idea because then that's almost half the hair on my head being gone.

It's really distressing and making me feel very unfeminine. Hair extensions aren't an option because my hair is literally too thin to hide even tape ins or keratin tipped. I know all the tricks like blow drying upside down for volume and using dry shampoo but nothing seems to help with how flat and thin it is. I'm not sure if I should just admit defeat and resign to a pixie cut or if maybe there some medium or long hairstyles that actually flatter very thin, very flat hair?

No. 73706

parting your hair in the same way especially if you pull it back can cause some mild traction alopecia/breakage in that area. you're doing the right thing by switching up your part and you should notice it growing back and going away in a couple months. You might sprout some funky baby hairs in the mean time while it grows but it should be easy to cover with a different part. avoid too tight ponytails like you've been doing and definitely avoid topbuns, those seem to be the biggest culprit for that kind of breakage!

Sigh anon, I envy you lol. I just want low maintenance hair. I have thick curly hair that I perma-straighten and it still feels like I have too much to manage and deal with. My sister has thin straight hair though. What she did was got a perm, but nothing crazy. Just a very mild perm, which you then straighten and it just gave her more volume. Or just blow dry it as you normally would and it dries straight but fuller. (If you're worried about heat damage and stuff)

No. 73709

extensions is only realistic answer to people with extremely thin hair. you can hide it well by simply keeping your hair down at all times. if koots can do it, and she has about as much hair as most people's bangs, then so can you.

I know that this sort of thing loves to flare up in the winter months, and it's super embarrassing.

No. 74051

Maybe you need to use more product to weight it down. Use a mask and a conditioner, spray some oil on wet hair (on ends or from half to ends. The same rule for conditioning).

You HAVE TO trim split ends, though, or the damage will worsen. Don't do it yourself, because you need very sharp professional scissors for it. Go to a salon, tell them to cut until it's healthy and start anew from there. Don't use too much hairspray, when hair is stiff from it it breaks very easily. Sleep with your hair in a loose bun or a braid. Use something - an oil, a silk, any product meant for ends after washing your hair. Avoid going to sleep with your hair wet, avoid using heat. When you're sitting, remember not to lean on your hair.
I have long straight hair (little above the bum) and I take a very good care of it. Still I have to trim it every two months or so. It's inevitable.

if you have naturally straight hair and it's in healthy condition i 100% recommend. blunt bobs done right almost always fall and dry perfectly. i had a blunt bob for about 2 years and not once used heat on it because there was absolutely nothing that had to be done to it except let it dry. the only problem is that if you have something similar to pic related like i did, curling can get tough, especially at the back where there can be heavy stacking. tbh tho i barely ever even tried curling it cuz it looked that good straight all the time.

Thank you all so much for your advice! I did some more research and found out bobs with blunt bangs are great for my face shape, so I'm getting more excited!

One last question:

I'm gonna slowly bleach my hair for this new hairstyle, for a big change (I'm experienced with bleaching/dyeing my own hair, so I'm familiar with the process - I can get salon quality stuff and plan on grabbing some olaplex to help me out, too)

HOWEVER, since I've let my hair get so long, should I wait til after the cut to bleach? Usually I'd think before, so any damage can get cut out, but gosh it'll be so much more product that way…

side swept layered bangs work wonders! don't do framing strands though or it just makes your face look fat. the side swept bang will show more forehead while the layering will bring more attention to your cheekbones. you can leave it longer as well, just stay away from volumous cuts and bobs which will just round it out even more.

hello fellow moon-chan
my face is like a plate but honestly I think a lot of striking hairstyles can look great on round faces. I got sick of my soccer mom cut so I got a super choppy graduated black bob with a shave under. It looked kickass and was easy as hell to maintain. Pic related is similar.

Issue is, my hair is fine but thick and very strong and dark, and I look better with my years-ago ass length hair so I'm trying to grow it out.

Right now it's around shoulder lenght
I'm too lazy to style it and since it's a tiny bit wavy, that makes it always look like shit; limp at the top and dry and frizzy looking at the ends.

My hair is in awful shape right now. I used to have such nice, thick curls, but I have PCOS and I lost a ton of weight, so a bunch of it has fallen out as a result. It's so thin and broken now that I'm tempted to shave my head so it will grow back evenly.

I'm scared of going for it though so I'll probably just cut it super short and hope for the best. I've heard good things about Olaplex, so I'm considering dropping some cash on it for the sake of trying to salvage what I've got.

I hate having short hair, but if it will be better in the long run to cut it and treat it so I can grow it out again, I will.

Good luck growing it out have patience. I grew out my hair for 3-4 years I believe I don't recall anymore. Like everyone else says:
Be careful brushing it. From bottom to top slowly and braid it at night loosely.
No heat , Don't bother trimming it every month I've gone about twice or so in the 3 years , Use hair masks once to twice a week( I like coconut oil even though it's hard to wash out) only wash your hair every two to three days or longer if you can handle it, careful with the dry shampoo because it can build up and that sucks.

Any decent hairdresser with know to give you a dry cut. If they don’t, pick another before you get in their chair. It’s salon 101 to give curly hair a dry cut because it is so different wet v dry (as you probs know). And with proper tools, there’s no chance of that extra damage myth.

If you’re short on cash, see if your local college or university has a hairdressing school. You can get cuts for free (or basically free) and their teacher is usually supervising. It’ll take longer because they’re usually less confident and their grade may depend on giving you a bomb cut. If you’re not asking for anything crazy, I’m sure you’ll be happy with it :)

Such a loaded question, there's so many brands to pick from so I'll give you my basic list of brands to avoid like the fucking plague: Bellami, Luxy, Sallys. I don't like these brands because out of the box, they feel soft and lush, but after straightening/curling once they show their true quality - horse hair. Unless you're a beautyguru with some clout, there's no point paying extra for the youtube brands.

So for brands I like, I've tried Zala recently, and remain impressed with the softness and health of the hair, it's fucking dead and it's better than my real hair. Another brand I've researched and really want myself is HairSecret, but I opted for Zala based on the price. They both have a pretty comprehensive color palette and every set I've ever bought comes in a sealed bag, with an unsealed or loose tester strand. If you don't rip the sealed bag open, and only use the tester strand to color match, you can refund and replace with a better color match. As long as you're not a blonde, I find color matching less of a priority to blending the extensions into your own hair to mask any slight difference in tone. Watch a handful of youtube videos to give yourself an idea on how they'll work for you.

Anyone have graying hair? Is there anything that can be done to slow it down? I started getting them around 14, I've had to pull them out since 16. I'm 19 now and I have several dozens or more that I need to pull out every few months. I'm scared of getting to the point where pulling them out won't be viable anymore.

I'm pretty sure it's genetic because the same thing happened to my mom, but it progressed faster for her than it seems to be for me. I really like the way my hair is now (very dark, and my graying hair is full white), and it's something I'm often really down about. I don't want to have to constantly dye, but even with dye the new hairs have a really wiry texture compared to my natural hair.

Is there anything at all that can slow it down? I know there's probably not but I just don't want to deal with this, it's really depressing.

No. 78790

I realize this might not be that comforting to you, but people are really into white hair, especially on young people. I live in SK and my friend has exactly your hair type (very dark and gets white hairs) and everyone we meet compliments her all the time.

I know that maybe it's just a SEA "oh an exotic foreigner" thing and isn't all that helpful, but figured I had to present an alternative opinion. For the slowing there's some things you can do!
- A lot of hair problems stem from Vitamin B12 and biotin deficiency, you might wanna get your levels tested. Biotin pills are prescription free and really good for your nails as well
- I've heard of egg oil helping with early-onset hair loss/greying
- don't smoke/bleach/hot dry
- don't pluck too much since it damages hair follicles

Sorry to hear you're experiencing that issue and I hope it gets better for you!

Does anybody any haircuts/styling tips for very thin hair and a godawful hairline? I know nothing about hair and haven't had it cut in years so I just wear a baseball cap all the time to cover the top of my head but I can't do that forever. I used to have sidebangs but they looked really weird because the way it parted showed how high up my hairline was, if that makes sense. But I imagine full-bangs would make my hair look even stringier because there's barely any of it to begin with. I'm probably going to get something drastic done because it really can't look worse than how it is now, but does anyone have experience with similar issues and how to fix it? Also, this might be a dumb obvious question but does shorter hair give the impression of more volume? My hair is really long and limp and it almost feels like it weighs my head down, would cutting it to shoulder length or above give it a little more volume or would it look worse?

Bangs have to come from the top of your head, sometimes quite far.
Cutting hair shorter does reduce the weight of the hair and so more bouncy. Otherwise, long layers can me used to increase volume around your head while keeping the length.

Short haired curly hair anon here, i'd say above the shoulders about 3 inches but for it to have that rounder shape, you'd also need layers or else it's just going to be flatter at the top and have more volume at the ends instead of all around, if you like that look.

pink neutralises green. you could mix some pink dye into your conditioner or use a strong clarifying shampoo, maybe that helps… and you should use a mask/conditioner with protein and sulfate/silicon free shampoo and conditioner (pureology and living proof are good brands) and maybe get an olaplex treatment. good luck anon!

Tone all the warm parts with purple toner, the blue/green parts will not stand out as much when the rest of the hair is cooler. I would be wary of toning them, but Anon above may be right.

You have to treat each hair section differently as the blonde/red needs purple/blue and the green/blue needs red. If you're not a good at-home hairdresser it may be worth forking out for a trained stylist

No. 80902

Baby pink is very hard to achieve, gonna say trained stylist again. If you can find a platinum hairdye in the beauty supply store, do a strand test with it (a cm section you can hide) to give you an idea of the results. Don't chuck it all on your hair as it could go patchy or orange depending on the undertones in the dark brown. Based on the strand test you know how to proceed. Big changes should be done by professionals unless you happen to be very experienced with at-home color changes and repairs

it's honestly not that hard. i did it on my first try, you just have to lighten properly and tone and you're good. the real issue with it is that it fucking fades so it's not worth it imo. it needs too much maintenance to go to the salon for it though. unless you can go to a good salon that will properly lighten your roots, and afford to go 2-3 times a month, learning to do it yourself is much better.

Hey! I'm struggling with very dry hair. When I brush it when it's dry it gets as worse as in the picture, tho my hair is more wavy. But even if I don't brush it when it's dry it's dry af. I'm pretty sure it's naturally dry because I have never done anything to it that could have damaged it, never dyed/bleached it, never used any heat, don't use drying hairsprays/gels, only wash it once a week..

Anyway nothing seems to work. Any product that any hairdresser has ever recommended to me never works, hair masks, hair oils, home remedies…. nothing works. Either my hair is still as dry as it was before I used x product/treatment, or it gets oily af. No inbetween.

have you tried mixing olive oil with coconut oil? use 1:1 ratio and keep in in overnight. wash with COOL water (warm will dry you out) and use a deep conditioner. avoid any heat tools and sleep with your hair in braids to prevent frizziness. use a wide tooth comb instead of a brush. i hope at least some of this helps, anon!

No. 81099

If you have hard water, wash your hair with a clarifying shampoo once a week or so.
Try putting oil on the ends of your hair while its damp and braiding it, I have similar hair and this helps a lot. Putting it on dry hair makes it look greasy.

Wavy/curly hair is naturally drier than straight hair. It has more to do with texture than hair quality. It's less obvious if you let your hair curl instead of straightening it (brushing wavy hair when dry also straightens it). Look into the curly girl method.
If your hair looks silky when blow dried and flat ironed, you just need to find a routine that works well for your hair texture. If its looks brittle and dry when straightened, then your problem is either some sort of nutritional deficiency or, unfortunately, shit genetics.

You could try using coconut oil overnight to help make it appear a bit healthier - I did this while growing out my straw-like bleached hair. There's no product out there that can "repair" damaged hair but you can temporarily improve its look with hair products.

I just got coconut oil from the local Indian food store - the organic non-hydrogenated stuff, put it all over the ends of my hair, wrapped it in a shower cap & towel then slept in it all night. After a shower I'd put a little on the ends while it was damp, then use a glycerin-based hair cream and small amounts of soft moulding wax at the very tips.

No. 81130


First things first make sure you don't put coconut oil near your roots (unless you are using it overnight). Instead put it on midlengths and ends, going much lighter on the oil in the midlengths and heavier right at the tips, which are the oldest and driest hairs on your head.

Secondly, have a look at websites for black/afro hair care - they suggest using a moisturising leave in conditioner, then a sealing oil and lastly a curl defining/hair styling cream. I am not black myself but it did help me improve the overall appearance of my hair when it was frazzled after a bad bleach & dye job.

Here's a quick explanation of the 3 step conditioning regimen


I agree with this anon - put oils on hair while damp, the hair cuticle is swollen from water and oils can coat more areas of damage on the cuticles flared scales.

How do I deal with having a mix of different hair textures? I recently cut off a lot of the dry and damaged hair I had from using heat and chemicals and started styling my hair naturally.

Is there anyway I can style my hair to make the texture look more consistent? Scrunching doesn't seem to work all that well for the hair in the back btw.

Are you from african decent?
From youtube tutorials I learned that african hair needs different care than caucasian hair like shampoos with proteins and stuff.

From a curly hair person to another: Lots of conditioner.
For cutting you should either look for a really good hairdresser (I noticed most usually cut my hair as if it was straight hair and it never worked out and always looked like shit). When it is longer you could just bent-forward into your bath tub rinse your hair with water thoroughly and cut a straight line. (image related) This way your hair gets cut in highly skewed level so the locks get more prone. Never cut too much since of course due to the locks they always are a lot shorter when dried obviously.

I have people asked me if I cut my hair all the time, because due to the locks they always lock different and shorter when freshly cut kek

For getting the curls more tidy: Leave-in conditioner or light oils (coconut oil, flaxseed oil, almond oil - take the natural ones for cooking so there is no parfum in there or anything like that).

Skip stuff with silicone.

any curly haired girls who straighten their hair, know how to fix this issue with bangs? I have a hard time keeping my bangs to lay flat. I resort to bobby pins a lot for a side fringe.

Ive tried blow drying in the direction I want them to go and straightening them flat down, but idk what to do.

No. 81608

I have a cowlick and I think what I do might help you. When blow drying, dry in different directions (right to left) by alternating sides every few seconds. Also when I'm getting ready I pin my bangs to the side, and depending how long it takes to get ready, unpin them and pin them again on the opposite side (similar to the drying method). If you let the bangs down and it looks funky, try pinning them yet again but the opposite way they were last.

Also when flat ironing, try curving inward as opposed to straight down - but not so much that you create a curl.

I hope this all makes sense!

No. 81619

somewhat related to bangs/fringes:
how do you guys keep your bangs from looking like a mess on windy days in photos? I went hiking once and taking photos with everyone turned out horrible. I couldn't get my bangs to stay in place. Bobby pins don't work well with blunt bangs.

No. 81621

If you're leaving your fringe down you can't really force it to stay in place without product, and that looks greasy and unfortunate. Really you need your fringe cut in a way that still looks good when it's out of place. So not too thick, not too straight and blunt, chipped into and a bit wispy is best so that it can be swept to the side or in half or whatever and still sit naturally.

Honestly my fringe is pretty shitty because I trim it myself out of laziness but that works in a way, it's always imperfect and doesn't have to sit a certain way so a bit of wind won't make much difference.

Is there any hope to save my bleached hair? I have an ombre hairstyle and it's chest length, but it's not growing whatsoever. I keep on doing coconut oil treatments, avoid using heat inducing products, and I only wash my just once/twice a week… What am I doing wrong?

At this point I'm frustrated enough where I just to chop off all of the bleached parts in my hair. Should I just cut my hair?

No. 82697

How long (weeks, months, etc) have you been trying to make it? Have you tried supplements? Your hair might not be growing because of your diet or it might be breaking off and that might be making it seem like it’s not growing.

No. 82701

I know that I should just go to a salon, but has anyone grown out a fringe/bangs without going to a professional?
Every time I try I end up cutting it off again because of it falling into my face and generally looking like shit.
And if you cut hair, how do I cut it so it looks nice when it grows out? I have both regular and thinning shears.

No. 82707

Not a big fix, but I'm a dye addict and adding Argan oil every couple days to my conditioner stopped it from having that frazzled dyed look. Whenever you wash you should use conditioner too, and a hair mask twice a week. You can get fairly cheap masks if the price concerns you, mine only costs £5 for a pot.

No. 82714

Go to a hairdresser, tell them to cut your bangs to the side and wispy it up a bit. Choose your "dominant" side, so your hair naturally falls into place. And then just grow it out slowly.
When it's getting awkwardly long, side cut will help you get it out of your face. Wispy - lighter, more flowy, won't look ugly on wind. The worst you can do is trying to grow out bangs from a blunt cut.
But growing out a fringe is always a pain and really there's no magic way to make it bearable I guess, use pins if you can't deal with it

You probably need protein treatment, not oil. Oil is just moisture while keratin actually helps mask the damage. I used to dye my hair blonde and it was super scraggly and gross no matter what I did until I got some protein treatments, made my hair a lot more manageable. Hask has some really cheap stuff that works pretty well. Damaged hair actually can't be "fixed" though, just temporarily made better. If you want to actually prevent the damage you should probably get Olaplex treatments next time you get touch-ups.

Another thin haired anon here. I cut off a majority of my hair last year to get rid of all the damage and went back to my natural color. Zoey Deschanel is hair goals for me but my hair gets super flat when I grow it out long. Like Koti flat and literally sticks to my head. Even when I get layers I only get so much volume. Any good products or other methods I can use to get something really voluminous without being drying?

No. 83091

That's a very top heavy cut. Depending on your facial features, that could be a bad move. The "long bob" with bangs is dated. But that shouldn't be your main concern. Figure out your face shape, features you want to emphasize, etc. Hell, even your body shape should be a factor. There's a ton of great videos out there about it. Brittney Gray is a great place to start. Do't feel overwhelmed, this should be a fun exploration!
how is that almost universally flattering? It could really skew your proportions. Its very heavy on top and thin around the jaw line. Its a great style for someone with a round face, though, imo.

No. 83119

Real talk, that is basically my current hair style (only down to the small of my back) and I'm thinking of getting it chopped off and regrowing again. I feel like my ends are just really dead and I need a fresher start.

Otherwise the only thing I've heard of that really works, besides trying whatever volume shampoo/conditioner is on the market is blow drying in the opposite direction. So if your hair sits on the right side of your face, blow toward the left and so on. Salon girls I knew would do this for clients to get lift into their hair.

Dammit, I hate being slightly behind the times because I was fancying a long bob. I have an oval face with a bit of square jaw so most hair styles can work.

Exactly how much hair would I need to remove to get rid of split ends? I cut my own hair throughout my teen years so I've only been to a salon a handful of times and I'm nervous. My hair hits the top of my armpit atm and I'm hoping getting it cut to my shoulders would be enough…

everyone is different. It depends on your care routine, styling, texture, etc. I had my hair trimmed after two years and only had a few centimeters cut off. Find a good stylist and trust them. Split ends are usually visible so you should be able to get a good estimate of how much will be cut.

No. 84009

What do you mean by thinning edges anon? That your hair line is start to thin out and receded? because to me it sounds like something along the lines of a pixie might be best for you, since you and get a lot of natural volume with shorter hair. I don't really know what's trending right now when it comes to shorter hair so maybe a pixie isn't ideal for what you're thinking of. And you do have your face shape to consider.

I've had boxed-dye red hair for six years. Finally decided to change and oh my god I can't get the red out. I even decided to go ahead and bleach the fuck out of it and dye back over with a different color and somehow the same shade of red came back at the ends.
So now I have the top part of my hair (not just roots throughout) a bright berry purple and the ends of my hair a weird rusty red. Any suggestions? There's too much red left in it to just chop it off, I'm hesitant to bleach it any more than I already have, and at this point I'm not sure putting any more dye in will even affect it.

No. 84507

People will think you did it intentionally, because ombre, but if you want to get rid of the red you need to counter it with toner, meaning purple or blue dye diluted with conditioner. Obviously only apply to the red sections.
Use vegetable dye like manic panic and not box dye to make the toner. (or SFX, Arctic fox, Directions)

No. 84523

toner doesn't work on dyes, anon. and it only works on natural color if the color is lighter than the toner. the reason her hair color didn't change is because how dying works. since boxed dye is permanent it means it has lightener in it so it penetrates the cortex and replaces the color with the dye. basically there's no more room in the shaft for the new color to penetrate or stick.

Can anyone suggest a place to buy cute wigs? I’ve destroyed my hair and feel so self conscious about it. Several sections snapped off an inch from the root and the end result is extremely frizzy and difficult to make look polished or cute. Hair is a huge part of identity and nbd but having fried hair makes me want to shave the entire thing off and start over. However, that’s not an option as I have professional career where a buzz cut would not be acceptable in the least. Even if it managed to look good on my lumpy ass head, it’s not my personal taste so I’m not comfortable rocking it. I’m coming to terms with the fact that I’ll probably be forced to shave my head soon, just because of how extensive the damage is. No coconut oil can fix this mess. So I’ve been loooking into wigs but I’m a complete novice. I just want something realistic. But I don’t even know where to start. Is synthetic a no-go? Should I look for more expensive wigs for quality? Where do you shop for something that doesn’t scream cosplay? Please help me out, hair anons

No. 85537

Anons, I need some advice.

I have been dyeing my hair black for quite some time, and now I want to go back to my natural colour, which is dark blonde. I'm conflicted on whether I should try going to a hairdresser to try and dye it back or just chop it all off at the regrowth. It's in a good shape right now, but I'm afraid of damaging it even more. I know that dyes tend to wash out over time and the border between my natural colour and the dyed part may be noticeable in a month, plus the whole dyeing process probably will include a shit load of stripping the color, toning, dyeing and maybe bleaching, sooo my hair may be pretty damn fried at the end.
On the other hand, my facial features aren't really suited for super short cuts, so it's basically choosing between a lot of pain in the ass versus looking like a 12-yo boy for about a year. As for now, my roots have grown for about an inch, and it looks unkempt and weird because of the contrast, and yeah, I know about regrowth toning sprays and I've been using them, but it's messy and takes way too long every morning.

Has anyone else gone back from a super dark color to their natural light one? Is it worth the time and money?

No. 85544

Honestly get a wig if you can afford it.

The whole colour stripping and bleaching part also depends on how long your hair is. Been dyeing my hair black for 6 years, decided I wanted to go red. My almost waist length hair was cut off almost to my shoulders because it was fried.

Idk, maybe that helps a bit on deciding what to do

No. 85596

I went from 10 years of black box dye to a light orange. My natural colour is dark brown but I wanted to go ginger.
It took me one year to get most of the black out. My stylist pulled out a decent amount but not fully at once. My hair is pretty healthy and I’ve been bright orange for a year and a half now. I started from black two years ago. Didn’t end up with fried hair and didn’t have to chop it off!!

does anyone have this weird fluffy thin hair ( obviously this is a wig but it was the best photo I could find)? How do you deal? Not thin as in not enough hair, as it the hair itself is thin but you have a lot of it resulting in this weird fluffy shape. I'm sick and tired of straightening it for hours everytime I want to go out. I don't like any tight curly styles because I already have dark hair and thick eyebrows and not trying to look spanish when I'm not. Not a fan of updos/ponytails either.

I have the exact same hair, anon.

The only way I can make it look semi-normal is by combing it while it's still wet before bed, then brushing some anti-frizz product through and then braiding it. And then when I wake up and unbraid it, it looks okay for a few hours and then goes to absolute shit again…

I don't have any good advice but I hope someone else does

No. 85751

there is a way to do it, there's this stuff called color b4 or colour oops. they sell it online if you cant find it instore, i've found it in drug stores/grocery stores before. it absolutely reeks but if you follow the directions you can drastically remove a shitload of pigment. I've used it a fair amount of times to remove box blacks/reds, it basically "lifts" or expands the pigment molecules so they can be washed away. it only backfired once, my hair changed colour from caramel to dark brown like a mood ring (while i was at work) from sweating/maybe not washing it all out. it's about $30 a box and really worth trying. thinking of doing it myself when i get paid, can update on the results if need be :)

No. 85757

I used colour b4 a bunch of times but it never worked for me personally for some reason (even though I did everything I should have for as long as told on the box).

Overtone has good colour depositing conditioner. My hair is dyed red and I used to use that in the beginning. It was great. They have pastel to extreme vibrant in all colours. I don't use it now, I hardly wash my hair, so my colour doesn't fade, but I would def recommend it.

Sounds like you might have a cowlick. If you see a good stylist you can tell them about this problem and they might be able to cut your hair in a way that helps this.

hmm it's supposed to last a lot longer than that, it was a very long (and to be honest intense/smelly process) so if it was anything similar it might have been. did they call it something specific when you had it done? at our salon (this was like 2010 mind you) it was new fangled/banned in canada but i just had a quick look online and it still seems to be a thing. maybe ask your stylist/salon if they do it and what they think. it's the best thing i can think of for that gorgeous long-lasting straight look. i think some of the k-vloggers/j-vloggers (maybe sharla or taylor, or maybe peachmilky?) did a couple of straightening salon vlogs but i could be wrong, but that could give you some idea, albiet on western hair.

my mom and i both inherited this kind of hair and I really hate it! i gave up on straightening and just get it layered and curled with heat perms now (like digital or air wave) cause i want it long. it takes to the curls really well since it's so wavy, and getting it layered calms the frizz. i don't know where you live/have been going but if there's a japanese salon anywhere near you please check them out, they know how to deal with this type of hair.

my mom spent the bulk of my childhood frying her hair with old straightening techniques and recently has just been rocking a short pixie-type cut cause of how damaged it was. going for layering is key though, i got a short bob once with an undercut and it looked nice for a long time. short hair cuts will require maintenance still. i guess getting it professionally straightened or curled will too.

slightly OT but that picture is triggering the hell out of me because her hair looks exactly like mine did in my freshman year of hs. i've always hated my hair-type, especially since my half-brother didn't inherit it. he gave everyone lice once and my mom and i both had to get our hair cut super short cause of it. i also get salty cause my chinese fiance has nice pin-straight hair while i got stuck with a naturally fluffy mess.

Have you even read the curly girl method? CG isn't a method that promotes water-only washing.

CG recommends either co-wash (washing with conditioner) or washing with a 'low-poo' SLS-free shampoo.

Kek I used to backcomb to get this look but I don’t really recommend it. You should try out pic related, I had it and it worked well, but instead of backcombing you can scrunch your roots gently to give it a slight, messy lift.

I have no idea what my face shape is or what hairstyle would suit me. I feel like I have a pretty big forehead, but since I have a big ass nose blunt bangs are a no no (tried it before). I'm a blank slate, so unprocessed long (past boobs) hair without any layers or anything and it has a tendency to get wavy or curl when I treat it right. (but tried to find a picture where my face shape is most visible)
Any advice or suggestions are welcome, just no sidecuts or pixiecuts because it's a turn off for the bf.

Long hair is definitely the way to go for your face shape, imo. Shoulder length or longer.
I think you look nice without bangs, but if you're thinking of cutting a fringe avoid short bangs, curtain bangs and blunt ones, as you said. Alexa Chung in pic related has wispy, slightly layered bangs that look really cute.

As for the overall style, maybe you could try some soft layers. They're not too harsh and don't take much away from your length. I'm obv not a professional by any means but i think it might look really good~

I could go for layers to encourage my hair to be wavy to balance out the longness of my face, that's a good idea, thanks!

I tried to see if I could find a picture where I had something similar to wispy bangs and pic related is what I could find. So I guess something like that, but slightly fuller and longer then. I'm mostly wondering about whether I should get bangs because my forehead is a bit on the big side, not a 5-head but I still want to optimize my looks. So I am considering like you said wispy bangs or maybe even side-swepped.

I have a Kirsten Dunst type of round face, so really round and that type of haircut suits me the best.
My hairdresser at first advised me against it but after seeing the result we both agreed that it looks fantastic.

I look younger and fresher and I keep getting compliments that I look cute. Even strangers on streets throw me "cutie" couple of times per day.

On the other hand, I love long hair, I think it looks super feminine. Unfortunately it doesn't look that good on me. I have thick hair so with long hair I get that pyramid shape with my top being flat and the rest wrapping my neck and shoulders. I looked like someone belonging to the missing link species.

Currently, my hair style is more like pic related though recently it started look wavy and curly.

Also, my hair dresser said that for round faces, side bangs are better but I kind of disagree. Straight bangs are better on round faces imo and easier to maintain but you should see that for yourself.

Hope my input helped!

Are there any other anons with shitty, Kota-tier fine hair that can help me out?

My scalp is so oily and it always looks like my hair is dirty, it's awful. I've been trying to train it to produce less oil (by washing it every couple of days and using dry shampoo in between washes) but it's been over a month now and it looks just as greasy as when I started. I don't think it's related to my diet, either, because I've changed it many times in the past to no avail, so I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this that has been able to get their sebum glands to chill a bit?

Sincerely, Gollum

I have fine hair but I only do what you're doing when I'm trying to actually get my hair oily for a while because it's been extra dry.

You might have to try changing shampoos and conditioners and just seeing what works for you. You want a light shampoo and conditioner, along with a weekly deep conditioning treatment.

Fine hair here.

Try not to touch or play with your hair during the day- that’s all I’ve got. I’ve done the every other day shampoo thing to break the cycle. I do like dry shampoo if I need I touch up.
My problem is split ends. Even with short hair I get them. No dye, no heat I get them.

I'm considering cutting myself some bangs again to cover my mystery-level fivehead, but am unsure if it would look weird with the way I dress. It suited my face otherwise when they were cut like that before, but it may be too weirdly cutesy for me now.

>by washing it every couple of days and using dry shampoo in between washes
Dude you need to leave it alone for at least a week without washing at all. No hair spray, no creams, nothing for a week to, even better, a month. Just brush them gently for a long time every day to get the sebum down to the bottom and get rid of dead skin.

I know it sounds difficult but washing it every two days is not going to make it any better, ever.
I used to have extremely greasy hair, now it's better. I try to wash as little as possible, two times a week is good, but when I have events coming I'll do it more.

I've been trying to bring out my wavy hair by cutting out sulfate in shampoo (for around 2 weeks now) and I definitely see a difference. My wave pattern is much more bouncy and prominent and my ends are very curly. It's cute, I like it.

However there is one major problem…I've noticed that my hair looks oily as sin all the time now, even right after washing it, it's super streaky and disgusting. For some reason my scalp looks okay but the rest of my hair is a greasy mess. It used to be the other way around, my roots got oily very fast and my ends/the rest of my hair looked pretty good even after a few days. What am I doing wrong? Tips are very much appreciated

But I'm confused, is sulfate free shampoo only suitable for people with super curly or kinky hair? Because I don't use any styling products at all yet I get so much build up in my hair.

Christophe Robin Clarifying Scrub-you can get this stuff from Sephora and it helps A LOT. You just use it on your scalp and it helps with the oilyness a lot. I try to only use it a couple times a week tops. It also helps stretch out the time between washing your hair.

Oribe texturizing spray works way better than dry shampoo and actually gives more volume.

I also get a lot of split ends because my hair is pretty damaged from bleaching and heat. so I use Olaplex on my ends as well and it helps with that.

Use corn flour (literal cornflour from the grocery store) as dry shampoo before you hit the "becoming oily" mark, so within 4 hours after washing. I have been using it for years with no ill effect or irritation. Before, my hair would get oily usually within 16 hours after washing. Frequent washing, while removing the oil prompts your scalp to make some more oil, so it's a cycle unless you use something like I recommend. I now wash my hair every 3 days rather than every day. I don't use spray or product dry shampoo due to sensitive skin. So try it out and see how it goes Anon. Btw it is the main ingredient in very expensive dry shampoo products so go to the source and save money.

I had this issue up until last week when my mom showed me a different way to wash my hair and it fucked changed my life. My hair is straight and fine, and gets greasy ridiculously easily too and my scalp gets irritated easily as well. I use a normal cheap ish Apple shampoo for oily hair, not surface free or clarifying or anything like that (those made my hair worse), I just use a cheap oily hair shampoo that I already know doesn't drive my scalp crazy. I put a squidge of the shampoo into a 500ml squeezy bottle of water or other empty shampoo bottle and shake it up. In the shower I saturate and wash my hair first with just water, then pour this weird water-shamp stuff all over then continue with that and rinse it out.
Any way other than this leaves a residue on the hairs no matter how carefully and hard I wash and rinse. This made a huge difference for me so I hope it works for you if you try!! It saved me from blowing money on ~magic expensive shampoo~ too.

Professional here! First of all - the issue is not your hair, i is your scalp.

Oily hair =/= dirty hair. Washing too much can contribute to a lot of the problems you’re describing. You really shouldn’t wash your hair more than 2-3 times per week, to keep your scalp balanced.

It sounds like you’re dealing with either seborrheic dermatitis, eczema, or psoriasis, which would explain your oily hair/dry scalp situation, as well as your extreme scalp sensitivity. I would encourage you to consult a doctor or dermatologist, because those require specific approaches different from treating other dry scalp and oily hair issues.

I would encourage any anons to please not use vinegar in their hair if they have scalp sensitivities or have had reactions to commercial products, without doing a patch test first.

For 99% of people who are dealing with imbalances in oil production - the answer is to wash less, and - yes - use decent products when you do wash. You don’t have to buy the $1 bottle of suave when you’re cleansing the proper amount and using the right amount of product (less than you think). Every major brand has regular sales on full liters at major discounts, as well. It’s not magic expensive bullshit - it is pricey because the ingredients are better and concentrated enough to be effective, and a decent amount of R&D goes into developing them.

Unless you have a scalp condition - wash your hair 2-3 times a week with quality products, refresh with dry shampoo, and look at your diet! You need a healthy balance of alkaline and acidic foods. If you have the balls - do the true power-reset of two weeks with no washing. You will hate it the whole time, but I have seen it work miracles to re-balance people’s oil production.

A full fringe woudln’t be the most flattering, but short textured bangs are a great look on short foreheads! You just have to make sure they’re not cut too wide across your forehead, with a round face, and that the rest of the cut doesn’t emphasize too much volume or layering above the jaw.

No. 93048

I did a full reset on my hair for about two-three weeks while I was on holiday. Used scarves to wrap my hair up and was so excited when I could finally wash my hair again - one day later it was just as greasy as when I first started.

I think some people just have to wash their hair more often than others. I do it every day or every other day depending on if I've been working out or not, and it's a lot less of a hassle than constantly trying to fight the oil with sticky dry shampoo and other nonsense stuff.

No. 93083

Sure! Some hair types can take it! If you’re not experiencing dryness or scalp problems, you’re fine. Younger women in particular can get away with washing more often. Every other day is totally fine for healthy hair if you have enough moisture in the strands and not just overproduction of oil at the roots!

I highly recommend New Wash to folks who just can’t get that balance right with washing. A lot of people are scared off by the price point, but I have seen it work miracles to re-balance hair. It’s also a “use sparingly” sort of product so you save a lot of money because minimal product actually gives better results than overdoing it.

I need some advice anons: my hairline/face shape is really unfortunate, nothing really suits me.
My hair is rather fine, but it's not like I have too little hair. The texture is flat and straight at the top but slightly wavy and dry at the bottom.
I always used to straighten it, but that damaged it badly. Right now it's a bit above shoulder lenght and I alternate between parting it at the side and the middle, no idea which one looks better.

People told me that having a bob suits me, but since I gained weight I don't think that's a good idea.
I tried dying it dark brown, red and black when I was younger. I also had bangs as a teen but was very bad at styling it, so it looked pretty shitty.

Any advice on how I should cut or style it? Is my colour too boring?

No. 95535

File: 1537268345125.jpg (350.8 KB, 633x704, IMG_6489.jpg)

I have two things I'd love some advice on!

Should I dye my hair a darker colour? My hair is naturally a dark neutral blonde that looks a bit lighter in sunlight, and although other people seem to like it I don't think it gives enough contrast for me to look nice. I'm very pale with soft blue eyes and faint freckles, so it feels like I'm almost desaturated. I've always been envious of Alexis Bledel's hair colour, but her colouring is a lot… brighter? clearer? than mine, so I don't know if it would look good on me.

Also, how do I style bangs with this stupid cowlick? I hate my forehead, but whenever I get bangs they're completely at the mercy of the cowlick and end up looking terrible. Apparently I have a diamond face, so bangs are probably a bad idea anyway (since they take away hair that can hide my wide cheekbones). Maybe the cowlick is protecting me, idk

I think something like a rich honey (pic related) would look nice. Also I think your hairstyle is really cute. I have a big forehead and wide cheekbones too, and I keep my bangs short but swept to the side (like Gemma Arterton). Showing that little bit of forehead makes all the difference on my face and keeps my bangs from really boxing it in.

Thank you for your help! I saved that image so I can start hunting for colours like that. And thank you for liking my hairstyle, it helps me resist the urge to start heat styling again (I'm super scared of damaging my hair after spending about a decade bleaching and straightening it until I had to cut it all off)!

Are these the bangs you're describing? Google gave me a few different styles but this is my fav! Side-swept bangs would better obey the cowlick too. Thank you again for your help!

Maybe a long bob (lob) with subtle layering would be cute? It could give you some volume up top! I have a similar color as you and I used to dye it darker but now I just leave it. If you want to experiment with color maybe some subtle highlights like babylights or balayage, balayage is very low maintenance. Often times a shorter cut will make you look thinner!

Is there anything I can do for this? Lol. I’ve been trying to grow my hair out for about 3 years from a super short pixie. I hate getting it cut because it always gets fcked up….but maybe I just don’t know what to ask for. My hair is so thick and one length I just put it up in a bun every single day but doing that has murdered my ends. I’m afraid I need to get it cut shorter. Is there anything I can do so I can wear it down without looking mental? Would layering help? I really like Noel fieldings hair cut from 2006/2007. I also didn’t really decide to dye it this color…. my friend had a bunch of left over due and I was bored… the color probably wouldn’t be as offensive if my hair looked relatively nice

You could try a keratin treatment that straightens your hair and takes the frizz out. Keratin treatments don’t necessarily make your hair healthier but it looks healthier. You could also get layers if your hair still feels too thick; I’d also recommend getting an inch or so cut off just to get rid of damaged ends. I’m not a hair expert in any way and am pretty retarded when it comes to beauty but my hairdresser recommended these things and they’ve helped a lot. I don’t think your hair is as bad as other anons are making it out to be.

My hair is fucked up these days and I'm not sure what to do. It's becoming greasy faster than usual and I should peobably wash it 3 times a week instead of the usual 2, which was just fine before. But My scalp is messed up now for some reason, I'm having a lot of dead skin on my scalp and I know from experience that washing my hair more often will make this issue worse. I'm only using the Head and Shoulders shampoo because that's the least worse one and I had this problem as a teenager for years, I feel like there's nothing to do but wait until it calms down.

No. 98268

Anon, I have a pretty similar issue like yours. Oily scalp. I also have frizzy ends.
The Head and Shoulders shampoo was shit for me, especially the one that claims it helps control oil. It actually made my scalp oilier than ever.
I suggest buying a sulfate free shampoo. I recommend the aragan oil shampoo from OGX, the Walmart generic version if it works just as good for me as well & it has almost double the amount for about the same price.
I use the non-aerosol SoCozy dry shampoo in between hair washes. I can go almost a week without washing my hair. This one's a little costly, about $9 a bottle, but it only takes 4 to 6 sprays to work. I tried using aerosol dry shampoo before, but it made chunks of my hair fall out once. Not sure if the same would happen to you. I have low porosity hair so that might have been a factor.
Avoid any products with protein and heavy oils.

My whole life I have had pretty oily hair but recently it has become unmanageable. It got to the point where it was greasy immediately after I got out of the shower and blow dried it. So I started using baking soda and vinegar to wash it which helped for a short while but now it's gone back to being super greasy - I have to wash my hair every day. Dry shampoo doesn't work in my hair (I've tried so many - batiste, dry bar, igk, etc.). I went a week without washing my hair and it didn't help at all. If I don't blow dry my hair and let it air dry it's immediately greasy. The shampoo and conditioner I use don't have sulfates so why is this happening!!!

I have belly bottom-lenght hair. My hair has never been this long, but I've always dreamed of it and I want to grow it even longer. It's just hard for me to not get really frustrated with my hair, to the point where I consider cutting it of.
My hair gets extremely frizzy and I just don't know what to do about it. The best I can do is use shampoos without sulfate, phosfate, parabenes, and wash my hair with cold water, but it's still so frizzy and witchy and ugly. The outer layer is just flat and plain frizz, the middle layer is wavy, and in the inner layer I have curls. It looks so weird.
I straighten my hair sometimes, which makes my hair soft and nice, but long terms it breaks my hair too much, so it won't grow longer.
I wish I could get that texture permantly. My sister has it, and I'm so jealous that her hair is extremely long and she doesn't even have to do much to care for it.
I've considered getting it permanently straightened with the japanese method, like Rachel of Jun and Rachel:


My haircolor and texture is exactly like Rachel's before straightening, just even longer and wilder. The problem is that I'd have to travel out of town for this and I'm sure it's going to look weird when my frizzy hair starts growing out while the rest is straight and I won't necessarily be able to come back to get it straightened frequently.
Idk what to do, I feel like I've done everything I can. So I'm hoping maybe some of you know of any product that might help?

I had/ have the same hair situation as you. Honestly home hot oil treatments, noughty rise & shine and my Kent woodyhog brush have completely changed the game for me. I actually have manigable hair in the week and it’s amazing. The hot oil treatment I do is about two cups coconut oil and 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil with a set time of 20 min (put the ends of your hair in first, obviously it’s not actually hot oil it’s just warmed on a stove.) After I wash the treatment out with my normal shampoo and conditioner,hit it with a few pumps of rise & shine and brush it with the wood brush I personally put it into Bantu nots to dry. Takes about a day, so try this on a weekend. Then if I need to wash my hair in the week I only do cowash and put my hair into pig tails so I can twirl around all day. Long frizzy hair looks so much better when it’s put into air dryed curls imo. The brush pictured or anything with similar wooden teeth is great for frizzy hair wet or dry. Hope this helps.

Ok so I waited to see if the problem would go away. My hair isn't getting greasy faster than usual anymore now so that's an improvement, maybe it was because I was about to be on my periods. But my skin is getting worse. I have to let my skin heal so the scabs will fade away but whenever I wash my hair the scabs get worse. I have no idea what I should do because changing shampoo won't change anything and the last time I saw a dermatologist for that she didn't help at all. I don't know if it's an allergy or something since the last time it happened I was like this for years and the scabs just disappeared all of a sudden.

Any farmers deal with telogen effluvium or hair loss in general? How long did it take to grow back?

I lost ~65% of my hair during the start of this year, the shedding was very dramatic first but slowed down after a few months. Right now it's limp, thin, and still slightly shedding. I can't see any regrowth whatsoever and it's kind of disconcerting. (Maybe I should go to a dermatologist.)

i can say that if you have any stressor on top of whatever initial stress it was that made your hair drop, you will drop more. about six months in to a slight regrowth, i had another severe shock to the system (major surrgery and then a death in the family) and i got down to about 40%. it's taking a very long time to see any regrowth tbh but it's not falling as bad as it was.

Hey fellow anons with hair loss, do either of you have any experience with spirolactone (sp.)?

Google says that this is psiorasis, not dermatitis… or are they the same?

According to an article they are two different things… but I am not an expert.

>Having an itchy, flaky scalp is a common problem for many people. However, before you can figure out how to treat the condition, you must identify the cause. Two conditions that can lead to itchy scalp are psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis:

Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease. It can cause skin cells to grow so quickly that they accumulate on the surface of the skin. Patches of rough, scaly skin can appear anywhere on the body, including the scalp.
Seborrheic dermatitis is a skin condition that can cause rough, scaly skin on the scalp and face. The common name for seborrheic dermatitis is dandruff. In babies, it’s called cradle cap.

I only have slightly similar scabs on my scalp. A few years ago they were at the same place on my scalp as well, and disappeared after years of me having them. I've had horrible acne all over my face, shoulders and back but it's not related to what's on my scalp at all, and I've never had scabs on my body. Now I'm checking this website that >>99427 linked and what I have looks closer to seborrheic dermatitis. Then again I want to make sure can find a solution so I'll ask a dermatologist. I already use dandruff shampoo, have been doing this for years as soon as I first started to have this problem btw, always the same brand.

Actually I feel really stupid right now because all of your answers helped me way more than whatever the fuck my dermatologist ever did for me when I was a teenager and when it first appeared.

stick with a nice soft sideswept or a tendril-y fringe if you're fine-haired, anon.

Your hair looks very nice and healthy and not at all thin. Definitely get a trim and some treatment for the ends, they are a bit scraggy.
Personally I don't like the heavy blunt bangs on you, for one I think it's a haircut that only works for very young women and secondly it emphasizes the broadness of your face, you have strong cheekbones and jawline. I would grow them out a bit, so they are less heavy, and give them a softer shape, showing a bit of your forehead and brows and framing your eyes to elongate your face.

Garnier hairspray should be fine. Hold it at least 20cm away from your head and use tiny spritzes. It’s not gonna hold them perfectly because curls on straight hair will always fall out but it should get you a night out.

Same, anon! I’ve been dying my hair black with semi-permanent dye for about a year to allow my hair a much needed break from high maintenance blonde. It’s finally feeling like I might be able to bleach it again in a few months, but personally I’ve heard only horror stories about going from black to blonde. Since your hair has been processed (I’m assuming, if you used a dye with developer) it’ll probably be a couple of rounds of bleach to lift to an acceptable blonde. However, hair that’s already been processed can have a couple of things go wrong. It can have a chemical reaction with the bleach, which could of course break your hair off or even turn it green. Personally, I think I’ll just wait for the dye to grow out, go for a cut and bleach my virgin roots. I’m quite fortunate in that the dye I’ve been using is actually blue-based so I can see a pretty visible line between my natural growth and dyed hair. I’d suggest you lay off the dye and set your expectations low. No stylist will be able to bring you to your ideal color in one appointment, especially with all the added risk of going from black to blonde. Accept that it’ll be a few months of appointments and lots of money to go with it. If you’re able to grow out your natural hair, you’ll be facing a much easier and less damaging process. Either way, good luck on your hair journey!

My roommate did it over several months by getting successively more and lighter highlights. In the end it was hard to imagine her ever having black hair because it was such a natural transition.

I have thin wavy-ish hair. Whenever I go get a haircut, the stylist always insists on straightening my hair before the cut. I hate using any heat on my hair. Does every stylist do this?

No. 99924

this is not normal. is your stylist washing your hair beforehand? usually stylists will wash it because wet hair gets relatively straight. she shouldn't be straightening it at all because you won't see what the cut looks like on your hair as you normally wear it.

where are you even going? stop going there.

Any good tips on promoting hair growth? My hair is naturally extremely thin and I have zero volume to it nd it gets greasy real fast so I end up washing it every couple of days.
Is there some medication, maybe vitamins I can take so that my hair grows thicker and fuller? Maybe some kind of special shampoo?
I know shit all about hair.

Hair vitamins exist, and help if you have a deficiency. I just take prenatal vitamins, because the extra iron is not a concern, according to my gp. If your protein intake is low, try increasing it.

Hey fashion color anons, I could use some help.

I bleached my hair last month and applied a toner TLDR; it's fading and I want to try a fashion color but I don't want to go a pale blonde. Is there a color I could put over this warm goldish hair I have? I wanted to try hot pink even if that meant a more peachy color… or do I force myself for the extra mile of a pale yellow? Which I hope I do not have to do.

No. 100114

Go for Arctic Fox, it's super bright and long lasting. Virgin Pink is that hot pink I used, it was SO intense. I'm used to Manic panic or box dye garbage so it really shocked me. I got it at Sallys.

No. 100158

Arctic Fox user. It’s the only dye I’ve used that thoroughly conditions my hair while I’m dying it. The colors are vibrant and soak in quickly.

Mix in a deep conditioning pack with the dye, let it process under a shower cap, and rinse with cold water for extra healthy, shiny oomph.

Question I've had for a while. I'm twenty four and I have had white hairs since I was maybe fourteen. I'm italian-irish with near black hair, I wondered if this was normal.

this is the part where you have to cut your hair short and let it grow again. been there, don't fight it anon, you're just wasting your time. the texture is not gonna get bettter ever and its gonna grow super slowly. chop it. any stylist that says they'll fix it is scamming you.

Girls if you have hair prone to frizz/live in a humid area Color Wow Dream Coat is a life saver. I was skeptical but I ordered it and it works wonders. My hair is so shiny and soft, no frizz at all. I went out in a drizzle today without a jacket/umbrella and my hair didn't frizz up or get ruined, it's seriously a miracle. Usually my hair frizzes up just when I go outside because I live in such a humid area. 10/10 would recommend. They have a curly hair version too

Never seen someone wear clip ins that weren’t horribly obvious. Plus they damage the real hair. Most extensions are ugly tbh. Very obviously fake unless you get a high end salon tier job done. Clip ins will absolutely not look like a high end salon job, especially if you plan on putting your hair up. The clips show and look cheap.

No. 100738

just get clip on ponytails or half wigs or something. i don't like hair extensions personally, they look pretty bad/fake and they can get pulled really bad when you style them.

No. 100745

>anons who have worn clip on extensions: were they worth it?
That's pretty individual, depends how stingy you are. I paid $400 or so for mine and just wear them on 'special occasions'. They are obviously extensions and I think my natural hair looks better, but I admit they give me a confidence boost and I enjoy the process of dressing up. I grew up with scene hair and I can't help enjoying the tacky fake look of extensions, but in a dark club nobody can tell you're wearing them anyway.
>do you think i could have some for daily use? or would daily use be too much?
I'd find that too much. They aren't very comfortable so you probably wouldn't want to anyway, but if you did they'd get ratty and damaged a lot quicker. .
>I hate my short hair and miss wearing ponytails, pigtails, spacebuns and all that fun stuff.
You aren't gonna be able to do many styles with clip ins, they're quite restrictive. I'd wear them in low pigtails/plaits at most, if not just out.

All in all, not really a great investment. But if you have realistic expectations (that they won't look perfect and give you amazing, easily styled hair) and don't mind the cost, they can be fun.

My hair is so oily, I've tried a clarifying shampoo and it only seems to make it oily faster. I had a dry shampoo that worked really well for the first month or so then out of nowhere it feels like it's not working at all.
My hair has low porosity. I think this is the biggest problem. Even blow drying after getting out of the shower won't do much. I wash my hair twice a week, I try to push every 4 or 5 days, but some times it's just too much oil.
My hair is also very thick and flat at the same time, I think my skull might be flatter towards the back. It's also thinning at the crown. I feel like such a mess.
My hair used to be so perfect and full and had great shine when I was younger. I really miss those days right now. I don't want to go back to washing every other day.

Tip 1- don't cut your own bangs, once a hairdresser shapes them properly you can trim them yourself or get the hairdresser to do it for like 10 bucks.

I have a kind of harsh face too so I ask them to 'chip into' my bangs, that way they don't look too thick and heavy. I can wear them either front or side because of it.

I made a huge mistake, I got my hair chopped into like a long shag with this horrid straight, broad Korean-style fringe (not my choice, I actually went in with pic related).

I've been thinking about changing my hair, it's been black for almost half my life and I really really want a change. However I have a hard time choosing which colour I want, so I'm wondering if any anons here have unnatural hair colours and how hard it is to maintain it?

No. 102404

I‘ve had unusual colored hair several times in my life and it’s genuinely a pain in the ass to maintain, unless you don’t care looking like an unkempt piece of trash. Especially if you dye it really bright colors it‘ll look greasy very easily (even when it’s not) once it starts growing out.
Dyeing for me always takes up quite some time as well but that’s because I apply it very carefully/thoroughly.

I’d say only do it if you’re really determined to take care of it. Also: Bleaching is incredibly damaging. Be aware of that.

Since one of the pictures is of an balayage; if you have a salon that offers this kind of stuff, go for that. It doesn’t damage all of your hair and it’s easier to maintain imo.
But only trust the salon if they have pictures of their own salon available, since there are sooo many salons out there that don’t know shit about that kind of stuff but will tell you they can do it nonetheless because they want the money.

I have pretty thick hair, but it's been gradually thinning at the crown for about a decade due to PCOS. I have dark brown, almost black, hair and it gets noticably greasy after about 3 days because of it thinning. Would dying the roots a shade darker probably help with this issue? Or should I dye my scalp instead?
I'm only in my mid 20s with this issue and it's possibly the only thing that makes me so self conscious.

No. 102420

Does anyone have any advice for dealing with traction alopecia? My job requires hair below the shoulders to be pulled up at all times, so for almost half a decade now I’ve had to wear my hair pulled up in a ballerina bun and now I’m starting to get recession near my temples. I sleep on a satin pillowcase, wear it down outside of work, use scrunchies instead of elastics, and I don’t heat style or color it. It’s baby fine, but pretty dense and waist length so I think the weight of it may be a problem. I really don’t want to have to cut my hair because short hair looks awful on me, but I also don’t want to permanently destroy my hair line.

No. 102421

Changing your hair colour to something closer to your scalp colour might help disguise the thin-ness. If you're dark with dark hair though ignore me.
I have dyed dark hair, blonde roots and a white scalp, and this gets really thin-looking once greasy. If it were all my natural blonde it wouldn't be so bad because it would all blend in.
It's probably not as bad as you think anon <3

Instead of a ballerina bun, try milkmaid braids (not tightly braided) wrapped around your head. That might distribute the weight of your hair better.

Any idea on how to stop dying your hair?

I know this might be easy for some people but I have been dying my hair since I was 11. Not by choice either. I was hitting puberty and my hair began to darken so my mother started to bleach my hair blonde. Ever since then I've had my hair dyed. I honestly have no idea why it's addicting now, it's just so hard to stop. I realize I feel comfortable with my natural hair color, the longest I've grown was 2 years and it was difficult to get that far.

Any advice? What do you anons think would take away urges or help lessen them?

No. 102797

Maybe try to dye it only a shade lighter/darker so it won't be a big difference? Or use non permanent stuff?

No. 102800

So it’s the actual act of dying your hair that you like? You could always just start doing a deep conditioning mask once a month instead, applying it feels similar to dying your hair. Some even deposit a small amount of color.
Or if the reason you don’t feel comfortable with your natural color is because you think you look better with the dyed color, maybe look into color analysis. It could be that you need to wear different colors of makeup and clothing with your natural color than what you’ve been wearing with your dyed hair.

No. 102844

Thanks anons, I think you have a point with the makeup. I actually don't wear makeup but have been wanting to for ages. I think like you say, if I try wearing makeup and focus on different makeup I'd be able to not get so bored with my hair.

I'll try experimenting with makeup and see how it goes. My hair is weeping for a break.
