Curly hair - March 6th 2010, 05:06 PM

So I have very curly hair with even some ringlets in it. It's natural, so I have it from birth. It's not bad, but if I want to get it ok, it takes a lot of work. I can only use a comb when I washed my hair, because otherwise my hair is looking terrible. I wonder what I could do to change it.
To have an idea, my hair is looking like this, but with ringlets as well:

I already tried to make it straight with a straightener, but there's no result.
Does anyone have an idea?

The picture isn't showing up for some reason, however for curly hair I suggest working with it rather than against it. Straightening is all very well but you need to invest time and effort into it and also money to buy a top-notch straightener that actually works!. I suggest popping into your local health and beauty store and buying some products for curly hair such as 'anti-frizz' ones or stuff that promotes shine.

Good luck

& it's just like she's in another world.

I have curly hair too... embrace it? Everyone else wants your hair. Mousse can help. As in, step out of the shower, comb out your hair, use mousse and scrunch it and then it will be nice and beach-style. (: Seriously though, the good thing about curly hair isn't that you can't brush it, but that you don't have to brush it. It saves time! No big deal.

hey I have naturally curly hair too, but i generally just straighten mine out, but have you tried frizz ease serum? i used to use it all the time when i was younger, absolute lifesaver haha, and its only like £5ish from like boots or superdrug.


Also i've personally found with my hair the only straightners that properly work for me are GHD's.

Full agreeage with Katrina, I have naturally curly hair (although I mostly straighten it now) and I've used mousse since I was thirteen or fourteen. Just scrunch it in while your hair is wet and it'll help take control of frizz and flyaways. You can also try hair serum and shampoo/conditioner for curly hair.

Thank you all! I suppose I'm going to get some anti-frizz in the store and I'm going to scrunch it.

*glittermist, the picture is one of Hermione in the first movie of HP, because I look quit hard like her, with more curls.
