Boar bristle brush PSA: pretty much all of the cheap, widely available brushes, even the ones advertised as having "100% boar bristles" actually have mostly nylon bristles cut to resemble boar bristles, with only a small amount of real boar. I suspect it's because nylon is cheaper and bristles made of it do a better job of detangling hair than ones made of boar (if it feels more like you're grooming a horse's mane than pulling something rigid through your hair, then you probably have the genuine article). Cheap boar bristle brushes also have terrible build quality and shed a lot, so you really have to read reviews and be willing to pay more to not get scammed if 100% boar is what you want. It's like that here in burgerland, not sure about other places.

is it possible to further lighten hair I already darkened? I had a faded red color then dyed it black. I’ve washed it and it’s been a couple months now and it’s lightened but I want it to be even lighter without bleaching it. Do I just keep washing more often? Use purple shampoo? How do I get more of the black dye out?

So I really want to dye my hair but I've gotten stuck on whether I want a flattering color or something funky regardless of being flattering. I have light medium skin, with olive yellow undertones. I kinda look sickly green a lot of the time. My natural hair is deep dark brown and I have brown eyes. I was thinking of something lie pic rel but it would probably make me look even more sallow. In the past, I had jet black hair that looked harsh and awful. Literally drained all of the color from my face. Green, magenta and purple were my best colors imo.

I'd stick with flattering. I have olive undertones too and I've noticed wearing the wrong colors can make me look extremely sick rather than just being kinda 'meh'. It's such a tricky undertone to get right and it kinda sucks the joy out of doing something funky when it makes you look awful kek. Maybe try pink or purple hair?

No. 371390

Yeah, you describe it perfectly. Off colors don't just look bad, it goes straight to jaundiced. I never used to care, and I've had all of the colors of the rainbow but I think I want to look healthy for once kek. Pink and purple are good ideas, but I don't want to bleach my hair. It's finally long and somewhat healthy.

Try using one of the hair color filters in apps. I was gonna go blond but figured dark brown looked better using those softwares and went with brown instead. You can't guess how it looks unless you can photoshop a color or try a wig and even then it's hard to get that exact tone with dye.

Sageblog but I dye my hair with that color. It doesn't get brighter like that, but it gives you a cool cooper reddish brown. I have your same skin tone, except I don't look sickly green.

I would use an app to change your hair color, but remember that the color changes with natural or artificial color, so the result might vary in that sense as well.

I have fairly curly haor I have been working on (for years) keeping healthy and growing it out. Its in pretty good shape. I flat ironed it for the first time in maybe 2 years the other day, because I botched my at home layers trim and wanted to even it out which is easier on straight hair. Fixed the layers and had long straight hair for a couple days. I washed it and then used a deep conditioner. But after washing and conditioning it, it dries with straight ends. Ive never had this happen before, and I used to straighten my hair quite frequently in a past life. It doesnt seem damaged,no splits or weakness. Washed it again and same thing! What is happening? Like someone used a curling iron but left the last 6 inches out of the iron so it's straight.

My scalp is CONSTANTLY itchy. I can’t take it anymore. I’ll scratch until my scalp bleeds.
Only washing it fixes it but I can’t wash it that often. It’s thick and curly so it becomes like sticks if I wash it more than twice a week.

I’ve tried changing shampoos, idk what to do. I do get dandruff but it’s not that bad, I think it’s a normal amount. I think the itching started around a year ago?

Has anyone had this problem? What can I do?

I have an itchy scalp and the only thing that's been able to reduce the itching is using clarifying shampoos with tea tree oil.

lame answer but you could consider seeing a dermatologist, if it's that severe you might have a skin condition that would need medical help. There are several issues that can cause intense itching and they'd benefit most from prescription products rather than cosmetic/OTC products

I second with>>372389. Everyone else has good recommendations but don't try a bunch of random things on your scalp if it might actually be something requiring medication.

I have seborrheic dermatitis and it took me forever to recognize what it was. My face usually has small patches so I never thought it could get worse than that. During a really intense stressful time of my life I had an intense sb breakout and all of a sudden my scalp was the same. It scabbed and itched like fucking crazy, it was also embarrassing shedding everywhere. I tried so many products and absolutely nothing help and some just made it worse. I'm not entirely sure what helped my scalp return to normal but a pharmacist gave me steroid cream for my face and after 2 weeks of using it my scalp seemed to clear too. SB is a fungal thing technically, so maybe my face was a trigger. See a dermatologist!!

I shampoo my hair twice a session, 3 times a week and while it's shampooed I use a wide teeth comb like picrel to scratch my scalp. I had the same problem and replacing just using my fingers with combs helped me a lot especially when I wash it twice. Don't comb your hair or anything, mine gets super tangled when I comb it while shampooed, but I stick this in my hair and scratch my scalp, take it out and move it to the next part and so on. This got rid of the itch completely for me. Hope this helps, sorry if this was common knowledge that everyone does.

Depends. If one side is light and the other is a color prone to bleeding (like some pinks or reds can be awful for that) it's hard to keep them seperate, but if you check the reviews of the dye you're using before hand it should be okay.

Apologies for potential a-log.
Nonnas, please tell me if there is a way to fix this male baldness pattern type of shit.
I had this type of empty space since forever, which is inherited from my father. At least he still has hair in his 50's and last year got his first grey hair so I don't worry as much for now.
I fucking hate my hair to the point of wanting to go bald but oh wait, this shit string grows at the speed of a snail so I will look like an oompa loompa for the next 3 - 5 years. And I got the worst of all worlds - curly, frizzy, fine and almost non-existent volume hair. I met more grandmas with healthier hair than mine and I'm 24 for fuck's sake, my hair looks like a fucking broom with no shape.
I tried castor and rosemary oil everytime I'm about to wash my hair to see almost no results for almost a year. Doesn't help that my iron levels are fine when I do the treatment for a month and afterwards it goes back to abysmal levels.

I'm cursed with AGA myself, if your hairline looks like the left it looks great, I'd kill for mine to look like that, it looks similar to picrel ob both sides now and it's not slowing down
how old are you? my honest advice is to go to a good endocrinologist, get ALL the hormonal shit tested, androgens, DHT, thyroid hormones, iron, vit D and if the doc confirms it's AGA your best bet is going to be spiro+minox especially. If it's PCOS it won't nearly as bad as with AGA.
for myself idk if there's anything I can do to undo the damage, I just want my hair not to fall so much and for that fucking pattern to not advance more. I'm mid 30s and the hairloss skyrocketed in the last 3 years, my hairline wasn't that bad in 2019 and I still had a lot of hair.
>>373606
go to another doc, my endocrinologist specifically told me you can have regular periods, hell, your ovaries can even look fine (no cysts) but your body can still act like you have PCOS, you need to take some blood tests
best case scenario is u only got some vitamin deficiencies/gut issues that can be fixed via diet/supplements

I have been to 4 docs in the past year and they all told me "welcome to women's world" when I told them about my severe period pain (all women btw).

Never went back
My periods are regular 90% of the time (and when they aren't, it's because of external stuff like meds) and I am a poster child for PCOS. If you can, get a better doctor. Many doctors, especially older ones, think PCOS is a womb-only thing, when it's actually a metabolic syndrome. Exactly what this anon said >>373607

Has anyone here experienced hair loss at the center area of the hairline?
My hair is very long and it's always been thick and voluminous, except over the past year or so I've noticed that it's been thinning specifically in the area right at the center front of my hair. It's only really noticeable when my hair is tied back, there's just way more of my scalp visible there than there used to be. I kind of ignored it up until my friend mentioned it and told me she noticed that my hair in the front and up top had become a lot thinner.
The thing is, I'm in my mid 20s, healthy weight, varied diet, not particularly more stressed than a few years back and no hormonal birth control or irregularities that I know of. Hair loss doesn't run in my family at all. I wear my hair down most of the time so I don't think it could be traction alopecia or anything either. I never dyed it or used heat on it. My friend recommended a dermatologist who helped her but that's going to cost me way more money than I can spend right now, and Google isn't helping much so I'm hoping to get some nonnas perspective.

I'm the OP. My hair is like this naturally. I only use shampoo and conditioner (sometimes). It's straight and whenever I finish a shower I brush it so it won't get tangled. It's a LITTLE bit frizzy, only at the top. But it's not that noticable. It used to be curlier when I was younger but around puberty it changed shape, same happened with my sisters. I use picrel.

It looks good the first days but it can look flat sometimes. I'd like it to be a bit more wavy. Do you have any more advice to make it wavy aside from using a flat iron?

Yes, that’s female pattern baldness. It will progress unless you’re one of the lucky majority that responds to treatment.

If you used permanent dye, get Color Oops or any of the similar color removers on the market. It works really well, but you absolutely have to rub it thoroughly into your hair and rinse while rubbing for at least 30 minutes. It reverses the dyeing process but the dye molecules are removed by mechanical agitation. Meaning - follow the instructions and really rinse the shit out of your hair.

The method I used was crushing vitamin c tablets and mixing it with head and shoulders shampoo and then I would sit out in the sun for an hour. I did this once a week for a month and it lightened from black to a darkish burgundy color (?) not sure why cause I never previously dyed it but it was something at least.

Another thinning receding hairline anon checking in. My hair has always been frizzy and brittle, I could live with that but I'm in my 30's now and the thinning has made it look absolutely hideous. I can't use minoxidil since I can only find it in ethanol where I live, and while it worked really well for hair growth, it eventually irritated my scalp to a degree where it looked like psoriasis and obviously undid all the progress. Hormones are all normal, it could be low iron since my ferritin is on the lower end but honestly I'm not sure I have a lot of hope of fixing it.

Anyway, I use volumizing mousse and hair fibers, and shade my scalp a bit which works alright. I keep my hair pretty short so it'll at least fluff up. I was wondering though if you guys know any ways to style slightly longer hair that might work instead of just accepting a grandma cut forever? I think stuff like braid crowns could look pretty nice with my face shape, I have a wide jaw too (fml) so to balance it out I want to keep most of the volume above my ears if that makes sense. But my temples honestly look so bald, I don't know how to make it work or what other styles could be worth trying. Pls post any styling advice you have nonnas I'm desperate.

I have thick bangs that have randomly been really prone to being greasy for the past year and if I shower in the morning it becomes greasy in the evening. No shampoo and conditioner helps here in the states and I saw that Asian hair care is good quality. I believe I'm going to try ichikami oil control shampoo unless a nonna has better suggestions. My hair is very straight with ever so slightly waves. As well as I believe it's coming from my scalp since it's most greasy there then what touches my forehead.

How did your hair turn out nonna? I´m using store bought oils, one from Fable & Mane and one from Yves Rocher (eurofags probably know).
I finally tried the porosity water glass test today but I´m not sure? At first the hair stayed on the surface for probabyl 5 minutes until I pushed it under the surface and then it very slowly sunk. So is it low or high porosity kek I have no curls btw.

No. 377707

Pick an oil based on your hair type. My hair is super thin and fine and using olive, coconut or shea makes my hair super greasy and brittle, so I stick to thin oils like jojoba or argan. If you've got thicker, dry hair, then go for thicker oils. Imo doing a regular oil treatment that suits your hair is the most important thing, mixing different oils won't change your results too much but it can be fun to make your little concoction.
>>377565
The porosity water test is not reliable. Go from your own experience : if your hair takes a lot of time to dry, to get fully wet, and doesn't seem to take moisture in easily, it's probably low po. If you're the opposite, and your hair tend to absorb moisture, but then gets frizzy and dry after some time, you may be high po. If you've bleached your hair, treat it as high po too. There's also medium porosity which is normal, balanced hair, so maybe you don't even have to ask yourself that question. Also be careful of yves rocher oils, they're advertised as jojoba, argan, etc., but they're all mostly scented sunflower seed oil. You'd better go with a 100% pure oil that you can find in a pharmacy, some are not even that expensive, or if you're broke just buy sunflower oil at the supermarket but don't get scammed

I think just brushing it and leaving it to its nature is enough. But if you wanna go fancy, hair clips seem like a good option for this style if you have bangs, either put them on one side and clip them, or split them in half and clip each to one side.

My hair has developed some kind of sticky film on it and I'm bordering on panicking. It's been like this for a week, I woke up some day last week and my hair was sticky. I was really confused but I assumed I just didn't wash out the shampoo and conditioner enough so I tried to wash my hair extra good that night but when I ran my hand through or over top of my hair there was this rubbery sound, like a fucking tire. I was SO confused, there was like a film on my hair making it feel all rubbery. I spent like an hour in the shower before getting out because I gave up. The next morning it was okay, still not as soft as my hair used to be but I was just thankful it wasn't sticky to touch. But again in the shower it felt rubbery. Then I chalked it up to maybe it having to do something with my hair dryer, because coincidentally the day my hair was sticky was ths day I started to use a hair dryer to dry my hair instead of letting it air dry. I'm afraid to stop using the hair dryer because I'm afraid of my hair going back to the sticky state, it's as though drying my hair with heat combats it. I also really want my hair to go back to normal, though. What do I do?? I'll be thankful for any information on what's going on with my hair.

hair is dead protein so i make sure it has less chance of breakage by eating the right foods like eggs/fruit/meat/veg (calorie (protein) restriction will thin the hair so i don't diet), and then put it up into protective styles as i wait for it to grow half an inch every month (the fastest hair will grow is 6"/15cm a year so it's just a waiting game + breakage prevention). before washing i brush it with olive oil so it passes through the brush without catching, i use conditioning masks and hair oil so it remains smooth and doesn't tangle. and if i blowdry i use protective spray and the coldest/luke warm setting. it's at the top of my thigh now and continuing to grow well. according to chemical and physical behavior of human hair by clarence r. robbins, hair generally grows to a max of 3ft. i also read that dyes may contribute to weakening hair and causing hair splits (when the hair splits as far as 4cm up from the end) leading to breakage, but it would not affect the anagen phase (hair growth).

fr when i started embracing my curls my hair routine went from wash -> air dry to a multi-step routine + diffusing lmao i’ve never been higher maintenance in my life

that being said i’ve found that the cut that works best for me without having to do my whole hair routine (but still looks good when i do) falls about an inch below my collar bone with medium-length layers on top, hitting between my earlobes to about an inch below my jaw. it gives me decent movement and volume while still allowing for more elaborate updos and air dries pretty long with waves and a few ringlets (for reference, when i diffuse at this length the shrinkage ends up leaving my hair around shoulder length)

of course this is all dependent on hair texture, density, and curl type. i have very very fine hair, medium density, low porosity, with big s-waves and loose-to-medium ringlets depending on what part of my head you’re looking at, so if you have a drastically different hair type take this with a grain of salt! if you are ever interested in doing a more elaborate styling routine though i have found some really lovely budget products i swear by that i’d be happy to yap about as someone who has spent most of her life refusing to do anything more than air-dry with no product

Your hair type sounds very similar to mine and I have given up on styling products because most of them are way too heavy, so I'm interested in hearing about the ones that work for you.

What results can I expect if I mix MM Vampire Red with volume 20 developer? It's going to be my first time going for an unnatural color like this and I don't want to go overboard and fry my hair but I also don't want to end up with a burgundy brown instead of a more vivid color. My natural hair color is roughly like picrel. I've only used box dyes before.

are you bleaching beforehand? if you do you'll get that neon red (speaking from experience, i used vampire red on bleach yellow hair all through high school kek) but if you put it on your natural color it will end up closer to picrel, maybe slightly brighter since that's a fairly light brown. Also you don't need to mix developer into it, that won't do anything. manic panic is actually pretty kind to your hair and I've never felt any damage after using it, it's the bleach that'll fry you if you use a high volume or leave it on too long.

I get a lot of compliments on my hair color, and my natural hair is darker than your picrel. Since my hair hasn't been dyed before I just bought schwartzkopf Vintage Red and slapped it on my hair and it lightened about a level or two and my hair is now a dark burgundy that looks EXTREMELY red in direct light. I use vampire red in my conditioner and it helps maintain how vibrant it is. If your hair is the color of picrel, you could prob get away with slapping a bright red permanent dye on that bad boy, and it will look even more red than my hair.

Sorry if I'm being dumb, but did you mean Manic Panic Vampire Red? Don't mix that with a developer. The developer will just dilute it, it's a direct dye not meant to be activated.

I fucked up cutting my own hair, and I had to go to a hair salon which I never do. Ended up with a haircut like in picrel but with short bangs. I hate it, and I feel like my whole identity is in shambles now kek. I don't even want to outside now, partly because how short the hair is and partly because styling this haircut is such a pain in the ass. With long hair you can just brush it and go, but with this cut I have to straighten it and use hair wax to look decent. Bought some hair vitamins in the hopes of making my hair grow faster, doubt they will work though lol.

I once asked for a short hairstyle that went down to my chin all around (I had a pic) and ended up with a style similar to your pic, I was so devastated. I didn't want to look in the mirror at all for weeks.
>styling this haircut is such a pain in the ass. With long hair you can just brush it and go
As someone who's had both waist length and super short hair I always tell women short hair is harder and takes more work, but people don't believe me and still make the mistake of cutting it short because they think it's "easier". No you HAVE to style it every day or it's gonna look like shit, you also lose the natural femininity that comes with long hair so people treat you worse if you don't look put together at all times. Women just don't get away with rolling out of bed and having a badly combed over bald spot like men do. Long hair I could just leave in a braid for days and people would compliment me on how cute it looked, or like you said brush for 1 min and then it looked great. After my bad haircut I decided to grow my hair really long so I didn't cut it for years, I'll never get a short hair cut again.

Nonnas, I have a face like picrel and I know it's awful. I've been thinking if I maybe style myself a little better I might not feel like such an ugly duckling. Right now I have a fringe and long plain hair that I pin up or braid sometimes, and I'm not sure if it makes my nose stick out more.

weird, I have a hairstyle like this and get complimented on it constantly, even though i just do it by blindly clipping away at it with thinning shears kek. Maybe it's because I don't have the "middle aged mom" highlights and just stick with my natural mousey brown color. I guess also my glasses give it a different vibe. I'm ugly so I used to never get compliments on anything, but since cutting my hair a couple years back, people are always telling me how cute my hair style is.

Anyway, why don't you try styling it like this? I think it can look cute and retro.

I feel like bangs will emphasize the nose in general, especially blunt thick bangs. Just pin your bang up and see if you like yourself better that way. Having nice, healthy hair is what's most important in my opinion and can elevate your look. Adding volume and curls can also help make the face and its features a bit smaller, but honestly you can't totally detract from your nose. The best way would be to act like Rossy de Palma, that is not giving a fuck and feeling yourself as if you were a painting. She did wear bangs and looked cool either way, so embrace your witchself and go all out with whatever style makes you happy.

Same experience. Ever since I cut my hair short (and myself too so they're not perfect, but my hair is curly so I can get away with it), I keep getting compliments from girls. When I don't want to style it, I wear hair bands and other accessories and it works out. The constant trimming to keep the shape is annoying though.

nta but I have a fairly chunky nose. I recently got some subtle, airy side bangs and I feel like it actually makes my nose look less prominent compared to when I had a completely bare forehead. I think it's because of the volume, most of my forehead is still visible and instead of sitting flat, there's some airiness where my bangs are sticking out a bit. This way, there's some added dimension that balances out my nose. It sticks out less because it's not the only point of forward projection on my face anymore.
That being said I do also have a fairly strong jaw/chin, maybe if you have a receded chin airy bangs would make the lack of volume in the lower half of your face more obvious, idk. Of course, either way >>392069 should wear whatever she likes, I used to have blunt thick bangs years ago and even though they weren't flattering my face I loved them a lot.

Some people just look better with short hair. It's more work styling but if you trim your own hair between appointments it's not that bad. My mom keeps nagging me to visit the hairstylist but since I've moved to America I haven't found anyone that can do a good job on my curly hair. Last appointment I booked was going to cost me a total of $300. It's insane and I'm cutting my own hair again.

Nonnies what do you think of “natural” blonde highlights like this? I have long darkish-brown hair and I was thinking of getting something like this done for the spring/summer, but it would be expensive, so I wanna be sure it’ll suit me. However, I’m not sure about the vibe it gives off. I’m from the southern US and there’s a certain style here of white women (like myself) dying their hair blonde, like the “southern belle” style that I don’t really like. I’m a bit masc and mostly date other women if that helps describe the image I want to reflect

How long is too long? I've been growing my hair out of laziness, now it's almost at my waist. I thought about letting it grow longer and selling it. But I can't help but feel like it's too long.

It's cringe but I'm a high twintail supremacist. From the ages of 12 to 23 anytime my hair was long enough I tied it in twintails. I have thick curly hair which needs to be layered a lot, so they look quite big and fluffy without teasing, and somehow it happens to be the most flattering hairstyle on me (along with the shoulder length 70s nonsense shag that I currently have because I started an agriculture job and wanted something easier to maintain… I showed up with my stupid twintails on the first day of work though)

It keeps your head cool in summer and you can lay down without being bothered by a ponytail, it also weighs a lot less so no headaches, and you don't need a fuckton of bobby pins to keep your top layers from escaping the tie, it all stays put all day long. I had to style my bangs every day though which could be a downside for someone else but I have to do it with every other hairstyle anyway due to my hair texture, so it didn't change much. Minimal hassle for maximal swag. The only real problem is that men consider twintails to be a sexual thing and a shady guy tried to scout me to do porn once. Shayna wishes she was me

I'm trying to resist the urge to cut it short again because it is so frustrating taking care of it, I really want to grow it long, but God I am so tired of the time consuming perfect little curls, especially when my hair is a freaking mess with different types of curls mixed with straight hair… I might just go "fuck it" and wear it like that, this is what freedom looks like, I can legit "wake up like that".

Hairdressers just don't know how to cut short hair, I've yet to meet one who can do it properly. I had to learn how to cut mine at home so I don't end up with the Karen special. I used to get unintentional bowl cuts as a kid because they especially failed at cutting thick hair with lots of volume.

What one anon said about some people suiting a certain length is also real. I love long princess hair but I've had short hair since my mid teens because long hair looks terrible on me. It grows into an unkempt mane of Indian hair that's painful to brush through and impossible to style because it's so heavy, so it just ends up being messy Hagrid hair with no volume on top and too much volume below the chin. It makes me look dowdy and matronly whereas short hair on me is cute, playful and flattering.

I have the same kind of thick, heavy (but healthy) hair, though I'm not Indian. I wore it long, to my waist until around 25, then I had someone cut it into an Audrey Hepburn-style pixie. It's so much more flattering for me than long hair (though I also don't regret having long hair).

You need to find the right person to cut it and then never leave that person. That's all i can recommend. idk I think short hair on me looks much cuter than long hair. I did have to change how I posed for pics though, just needed to understand how my profile looked if that makes any sense.

I just got my hair highlighted and I think I hate it. It’s chunky with big blonde streaks at the front right next to my natural hair color which is super dark. Will washing my hair help the disparity in color? Please help anons.
I’m working with something like picrel but just image a bright blonde streak at the front of your bangs and then brown right next to it.
This has me considering whether I need to change my hair stylist because I feel like her style is so dated compared to other hair people. My family has been going to her for a long time and she gives me a friends & family discount so I feel really guilty trying to find someone else.

I don't know about dye, but you should definitely switch hairdressers. There are just some things that older ones can't do and there's nothing to feel guilty about.

Chunky highlights are pretty popular with everything y2k being trendy so I wouldn't worry about it too much. But you could put some kind of dark blonde toner over your hair to make the bright parts look less stark, I did that because I had an ombre done that I thought was too drastic and now I love my hair color.

You can't make bleached hair darker by washing it. You can only put toner over it to make it darker, but make sure to only put it on the bleached bits because otherwise you will still have the same color difference, just a couple shades darker. You should probably go to a different hair salon and maybe have them fix it. I don't go to hair dressers anymore, I have never once gotten what I asked for and I think that 99% of them are just incompetent.

Just like anything else it's a trial and error thing. The very first hair oil that I tried was Hairmed 01, but no matter how I used it, it still felt too heavy and made my hair stringy. The next one I got was Schwarzkopf Rose oil, and it works great for my hair.

Okay to follow this up, is there any way that I can make my hair less brassy or do I have to go back to the salon and have it dyed? I feel like one of the biggest issues is that the blonde is way too warm-toned and it doesn’t match my skin because I have a pink undertone. Should I have just dyed my hair altogether? It’s hard to explain but I feel like my natural hair color (the brown) doesn’t really suit my skintone either even though it’s my natural color.
I can’t reply to everyone’s comments rn but I appreciate all of your advice and will personally thank all of you later.

i'm morrocan and i use it, it really is some of the best products i have owned. Argan oil does not hydrate your hair, it's an oil. It does not replace a shampoo or a curl defining cream.

Let me break few misconceptions

> Oil can not hydrate or moisturize your hair, because it does not contain any water


> Silicones are not bad for most hair either, most shampoos can remove them, they create a protective shield on surface of the hair.

They are an anti humectant so they retain hairs moisture while creating a barrier to external moisture finally, they also are friction reducer- will prevent breakage from brushing, and blow dry brushing

> If you have curly hair, always make sure to remove entirely creams, or oil you put on your scalp because it clogs it and will impair hair growth

Sure, I used to not do anything to my hair either, but I realized just a couple of minutes with a purposefully angled hair dryer can make a huge difference in the amount of lift. Picrel is a traced pic of my hair, I keep it a bit longer on top so that I can get a rounded look, I used to put a little mouse in it but eventually realized my hair doesn’t really need it as long as I blow dry it in the right way. I don’t do anything fancy, I usually just take one hand and hold the little sideburn pieces down to the side of my face (so they don’t get blown the wrong direction) and then on medium to high heat, blast the rest of my hair directly upwards (for bangs, upwards and sideways) for a while so the roots dry facing up-ish which gives the hair the lift I’m looking for. Then I blast downwards for just a half second or so to make sure pieces don’t stick out at weird angles/make sure everything is laying approximately the same direction.

Also, I realized I like this hair cut better with a tiny eency weency bit of extra length at the back of the neck, which you can see in picrel. I think it makes it look more fun and youthful. just imo

I naturally have medium/dark-ish brown hair (closest to 5 on picrel) that I have since dyed really dark brown that almost resembled black when fresh. The color has since faded and the last time I dyed my hair was October. I tried to lighten my hair with the strongest at-home bleach but the color didn't lift at all. (I only did a test strip)
I'm assuming this means I can't bleach hair at home? Do hair dressers have stronger stuff that would be able to lift the color? I'm currently in a hair crisis but I am thinking of a light brown color that wouldn't be possible without bleaching.

So I usually bleach my hair to a #60 bleach blonde with classic bleach mix, but last time I tried bleaching my hair, the smell of the bleach seemed 10x more potent than usual. It actually got to the point I couldn’t breathe and every time I inhaled it was like being gassed literally. Even my roommate who sometimes helps me was like ‘that doesn’t smell good…maybe you should rinse it off’ I checked the peroxide and I think it might have been left open for a few months or something. The bleach powder was new and fine. Is this expected when using old or expired liquid peroxide? Honestly I’m used to regular bleaching smells but this was like atomic smelling and nearly killed me.

Does anyone have any experience using cassia? It's also known as senna or colorless henna (although it's not the same plant as henna). You can't dye your hair with it but it works well as a hair treatment for volume and softness, and if your hair is very light it may give you golden highlights. I'm thinking about buying some but pic related is almost 13€ for only 100 grams, it's not that cheap.
>>401558
I think the only problem with a balayage is that you'll need to maintain it with specific products or even going back to the salon every other week to get it touched up so it doesn't look fried. If you live in the northern hemisphere your hair tips may become very dry on summer.
>>401607
It doesn't sound like that product was in proper conditions at all, nona. Would you consider using other methods to lighten your hair that don't involve conventional bleach? I know most of them could take you up to a month to get actual results but maybe that's good. A lot of women lighten their hair in a two or three week span, taking some time to moisturize deeply the hair before applying any chemicals again.

I've been trying out curtain bangs inspired by korean hairstyles lately and am learning to style them. I clean them everyday, blow dry then put on a hair roller, wait and fix with some hairspray, then brush it with a comb with some more hairspray to separate the strands. I really like the airy/wispy look like picrel, but even if I can kinda achieve it with styling it clumps almost as soon as I go out and I have to fix them nonstop. Does anyone have a tip to keep the wispy look ? Should I just always have a brush with me and brush them out often, change the cut, or find a better hairspray?

If you are very careful (if you’re doing it yourself I assume) it can be soooooo fucking cool.

hairspray is a necessary evil when it comes to bangs but it’s really hard to find brands that do the job without making your hair look clumpy or crispy. What kind are you using? My bangs aren’t as wispy as they used to be, but when they were I used hairitage hair spray, but it was always super hard to find stocked in stores. If you don’t have a good hairspray I’d say stop using so much of it. Wispy bangs especially are supposed to blow around and be a little chic, it’ll look unnatural and weird if they’re stuff and sticky. I was also a fan of dry shampoo (again hairitage brand, there might be better ones this is just one I like which I’ve always used), I’d flip my hair upside down and spray it on my hairline from a distance. It gave me a wind blown wispy sort of look that I could easily piece out jnto something really cute. Also did the job of holding things relatively in place without being sticky and clumpy. It’s a really delicate balance. Though, with all of this, bangs really are just the devil. Especially when you first get them, you’ll always be fiddling with them and worrying about them. wispy bangs are the worst, too. one gust of wind and you’re over. I wish you luck and fortitude anon.

I've always had waist length hair and went up to a few inches past my shoulders for the first time and I love how cute my braids and ponytails look now. but then, I'm still working up the bravery to go all the way to bob length and Chappell Roan music videos make me wanna grow it back out so maybe don't listen to me.

Sometimes I feel like having long hair is such a curse because people will inevitably tell once you get a drastic haircut that you looked better before. I went from waist length to a bob once because my hair was shitty and bleach damaged and people still commented they couldn't understand why I did that. These days though I really like having long hair, it's just fun to braid or put in different updos when I'm bored.

Up until now I thought the hairstyle in the very first clip only exists in 90s manga. Now that I know it's possible, I kindly request a tutorial. I am absolutely retarded with hairstyling and the most complex thing I manage is a high ponytail. When I put hairclips in my hair, they never stay in place. Please give a step by step description.

Nonna this is very easy you can absolutely do this! I've done it by accident before (the tiny sheer bangs part) it doesn't suit my face but I think it's a really cute look. Just start by cutting the tiniest amount of bangs like literally taking just a few hairs especially if you have thick hair. You're just cutting like baby hairs essentially. Do it about mid eyebrow length and you can trim more if you want after. Then part your hair all to one side and pull the bang pieces out, stick a clip in it you're done
Ryoko shinohara has her hair in that exact style in the drama Last Cinderella, for some reason I can't find a good pic of it but it's worn that way several times in the movie

how do i get my bangs to stay in the style of top left and bottom? it always ends up flat and to the side like in pic 2, no matter what i do. i know i have a cowlick and widows peak but there must be some way to get the style to stay?

my routine:
blow dry front pieces from side to side and then flatten with a brush and point blow dryer to tip (my attempt to get the hair to stay forward)
then i spray it with some kenra hairspray.

Nonnys, i have a sort of squarish round jaw and soft features. Tiny nose, big almond eyes, medium lips. No sharp edges at all and i want to look sharper. Is that even possible with a haircut? If not, what hairstyles would compliment soft feminine features.
I have had pixies and long hair all the way to my arse. I just have medium length hair with slight long bang from last two haircuts. The current look makes my jaw appear super square and wide and i dont like that. My face shape completely changes when i put my hair up. So badly that when i grew my pixie cut long enough to slap in a ponytail, my coworkers didnt recognize me lmfao.
Anyways, some advice would be nice.

nonnas i need help so bad. please. nobody replied to my hair post and i cant even go on reddit because i cant get enough karma bullshit for advice. ive hated my hair since i was a little and its making me obsessive lately.

naturally my hair is a dark brown and looks like this. however i assume from bleaching it again and straightening it more (i think its more so the straightening without a heat protectant when i forgot one on a week long vacation that really fried the fuck out of my hair because even with bleaching or highlights i still maintained a decent amount of curl)

its not stringy but just frizzy and so dead and dry on the ends. i even cut a bunch off and it wasnt enough. i havent been touching it with any heat or bleach and im just at a loss.

id really like to dye it all a lighter brown and trim more and wear some curly clip in extensions until it grows out. does this sound like a good idea? i love it straight and i love the blonde on me i just feel like i need to take a new route. i can still straighten it sometimes but i just want to feel pretty in my natural hair and not have it in a frizzy low bun that makes me look fucking homeless. i cry so much over it. and im not good with wigs and theyd be awful in the heat. if i ever want blonde i figure i can just try out a wig in cooler weather but i dont think the bleach damage is worth it anymore.

my hairdresser is also out until september so im just at a loss. do i find a new one for now?

tldr my naturally brown curly shoulder hair length has been drier with less curls lately and i have stopped heat and bleach (the bleach is grown out i have about 2-3 inches of fresh hair regrowth) i look homeless so im thinking to trim, dye an all light brown, and grow it out…probably need to see a hairdresser

Anon I don't think you need to panic like this is some super horrible problem unique to you, bleach damage is incredibly common. You shouldn't have trouble finding info on reddit if you just search key words.

I have the same issue except my hair isn't curly. I'm going to dye it back to my natural colour, keep getting trims, wait til it grows out. Not much else for it. Go see a different hairdresser, who tf wants to wait months for a haircut out of loyalty to a stylist?? And I don't think you need extensions or a wig unless you're cutting your hair ridiculously short. Maybe you should use olaplex too (I cbf but it supposedly works).

Anons idk what to fucking do. I literally showed the hairdresser the above picture, and I ended up leaving looking like a slightly redder version of the below one.
We both admitted it wasn't what I was looking for, but since I'm 1. awkward, 2. it is a really good color and it admittedly DOES look good on me. But as the evening went on the more I hate it because it's not what I wanted.
Is there anything I can do on my own (other than emailing the salon)? I'm kinda freaking out atm and considering going ham on it with head & shoulders and hoping for the best.

It's probably not gonna fade to that color up top unless you started with something very light brown to begin with. If you started blonde or brown it's just gonna fade to a kind of orangey color or brown again. Just rock the red, you don't always get what you want 100% and if it looks good you should just enjoy what life throws at you

it's scary the first time, but get some hairdresser's scissors and do it yourself. you'll need them anyways since keeping these bangs means trimming them every few weeks. the bangs in your picture are a staple in jfashion but if you ask a hairdresser for it outside of japan they'll assume you want either thin bangs or the super wide zooey deschanel fringe.
make an even n-shaped part like picrel. if they're too wispy, add more hair into the top of the part (from further back on your head). also if your hair isn't stick-straight it may just need some styling tbh

If you nonnies hate dealing with hair, please get dreads. It's literally the best decision I ever made. My maintenance is so low, no more straightening, curling, and spending 40 minutes to an hour in the morning getting my hair ready. I also tried the curly girl method (2B curls) and it ate up hours of my time.

They require root touchups every 3 months or so (how often you go in for touchups depends on if you want them looking extremely neat at the root or if you are okay with the roots growing out a bit) and they do need a deep vinegar cleanse once a year. Obviously, you shower as normal with them provided you have a clarifying shampoo (you don't use conditioner or it creates buildup).

To me, this is so much easier than my old routine. You already are saving so much time in terms of not needing to style your hair daily. If I tried to wear my hair naturally in the past, the curly girl "routine" after I'd wash my hair took hours to complete when I didn't have dreadlocks. For me, it wasn't worth wasting a whole weekend (okay, I'm exaggerating a little, it would take about a whole day at least since my hair does NOT dry. It takes 7-10 hours to dry on average when I used the curly girl method). If you learn to do root maintenance yourself, it's nice because them you also don't need to pay someone to do your maintenance for you. I guess the only other consideration is that you'll want silk pillowcases at least to avoid lint buildup.

if you work out, you can spray your scalp with a mild vinegar/distilled water mix to keep your scalp fresh. I've never had to do that since I don't sweat that much in general.

Again, it's all about perspective. If you like your hair the way it is and it looks neat, that's obviously the easiest method of all. I just find it far easier to have dreadlocks than to have to style my hair to avoid it looking frizzy.

Going to try out the $$$ hipster salon with the "gender-affirming" hairdressers because at least these ladies aren't a million years old and seem to know how to do cute short hair on women, unlike my bitchass ex-hairdresser who no matter what I told her kept giving me the same basic bitch blunt bob and leaving the entire back an inch longer than the front because of supposed "cowlicks". At least she was cheap. If I don't get the 90's boyband cut of my dreams then I'm buzzing it all off. Wish me luck.

Hairdressers can be very close minded. I go to a vintage hairdresser because my style is very vintage leaning. She usually does an amazing job but she’s quite misogynistic.

I'm gonna go insane, I haven't changed anything to my hair routine but for the past few weeks it's been getting bad. It started feeling waxy/sticky, heavy and gross at the back after washing, now it's spread to more of the lengths and almost the whole back of my head. It's so embarrassing that I have to tie my hair all the time, when I usually have nice, thick wavy hair with sort of ringlets at the ends. Now it looks all dull and disgusting. I asked for help at a beauty store and they gave me a light, natural, silicone-free shampoo I've been making the switch to but it's getting even worse. Tried putting on less shampoo, more, rinsing abundantly, it's not changing. Anyone ever had this happen?
