Question hair mehem - June 24th 2011, 07:37 PM

my hair is always messy and puffy no matter what i do to it!
straighten it : frizzes up after a while
curl it: dosent work and or makes it worse
ponytail: what i usually do, but since i got my hair cut its even messyer now!
pigtails: goes frizzy after 10 minutes
Braids: some of the hair in back comes loose
one braid in back: hair on the side of my head on the top layer dosent reach so it just hangs there and puffs/frizzes up!
so as you can see i really can't do anything to make my hair look like a normal persons!(at my school at leats) and if i put it in a ponytail in the morning and the hair framing my face is all nice and straight, in 1-2 hours or if wind gets its way, its puffy and frizzy from then on out! if you have any tips could you please tell me?

Life is too

Short to spend

It at war with


I’m catching stars in the sky because I am fixing the soul within me. May it be from the heart a girl broke years ago or my soul simply repairing itself as it was shattered on my walk on this earth. May the stardust fill those cracks within my soul making me brand new, but never forgetting who I once was.

Some great ways to reduce frizz is to thin out your hair, to get layers cut into it, air dry your hair, and use an anti frizz serum

And here you are living, despite it all.

To get rid of my frizz I use the Pantene Frizzy to Smooth shampoo and conditioner, then I typically put an anti-frizz spray in it and this creme stuff (Not gel, but not mousse, it's weird) that I got from the Hair Cuttery. (But the spray and creme ARE a bit expensive because they're from the hair salon, me and my mom saw them at Ulta for cheaper if you have an Ulta near you.)
I also got my hair thinned at one point and it was amazing. Your hair will feel so much lighter afterwards. (It could've been because I got 6 inches off at the time though... But I'm sure the thinning contributed to the lightness a little bit.)

These are the things you can find at Ulta or your local hair salon that helped me out a lot:

^^ Also makes your hair shiny, protects your hair from heat damage if you want to straighten/blow dry, repairs damaged hair, etc.

Hope that helped. =)

I understand your pain, my hair gets frizzy so easily.

Like others have said, getting your hair thinned is probably a good idea. Other than that, I would experiment with different shampoos/conditioners as well as hair sprays/serums and see what works for you. Tresemme or Pantene products usually work best in my hair, but there are products out there that are less pricy and might work better. So, be patient, and good luck!

And the [mome raths] outgrabe.
