Anonymous asked: My hair is thick, wavy, and super frizzy. Even if I go out with it looking manageable, in an hour I'll look into a mirror and IT'S A FRIZZY DISASTER. Are there any hair masks (homemade or product, idc) or hair products that will make my hair soft and shiny and frizz-free?
I don’t know about homemade products, because I don’t use them, but look for products that are moisturizing. It helps to control the frizz. Also, keep dryer sheets with you, especially in the winter because they reduce static and help to control frizz.
Anonymous asked: I have no idea how to style my thick hair, and I'm sick of putting it in a low pony tail all the time. Do you have any suggestions for an everyday look?
I’d wear it down a few days, figure out what the tendencies of your hair- like, mine tends to get curlier as the day goes even if I flat iron it. Then from there figure out what kind of hair you have and look up styles for your hair type/length. I’d also suggest getting goody spin clips because they are AMAZING and can hold my long think hair in a bun or twist all day.
Anonymous asked: I really have thick hair which is up until my waist. My only problem is, the end tips of my hair has this curly effect which annoys the hell out of me. Its not the kind of curly that is nice its like a sea waved looking in every strand of my hair. I cut my hair so that it'll be gone but by the following day it comes back
I’d use a flat iron.
Anonymous asked: About the anon with really thick curly hair, sometimes anti-frizzing gel makes thick hair thinner.
I would suggest anti-frizz spray, personally.
24keres asked: I have super thick wavy/curly hair that is being weighed down, I think by the conditioner I am using, and won't keep any curl! Any suggestions for products that could help with this?
I use Tresseme conditioner and I love it. I was using Dove, but it made my hair feel greasy (I have super oily hair already) I switched to Herbal Essence and it made my hair feel waxy. So far this one is pretty light. I’d also suggest a moisturizing conditioner, or if you color your hair use a color treatment conditioner (or try one anyway- they’re usually gentler).
I’d also suggest finding a good product- mousse, hairspray, or the like, to use anyway because thick hair can weigh itself down if it’s long enough (mine is down to my waist and heavy enough that it has trouble curling) that will help it keep it from being weighed down.
guyyssss i have extremly frizzzy hair which is also really dry. iv never done anything majorly bad to my hair and i dnt know why its like this. i know ull say dont apply heat but when i straighten my hair it actually helps… it makes it less frizzy. iwas thinking on getting my hair permanently straightened. any thoughts?
Some people have naturally dry hair. it’s pretty common. I’d suggest shampoos and conditioners that are moisturizing. (intense moisture if the brand has it) if you’re into the natural route, olive oil is really good for your hair.
I’d be weary of chemically straightening your hair, I’ve had friends who did it and it dried out their hair even more. If you can find a moisturizing product that works well, that should control the frizz.
memoriesihaveofyou asked: I have long thick hair and I try to braid it into sections so that it comes out like mermaid hair but mine just ends up becoming a big poof ball. Anything you can suggest to help me. I don't use hair products when I do this so if you have a suggestion I would appreciate it thanks :)
I would use some kind of hair product, either a light spray gel (Garnier has a spray gel- but I wouldn’t use anything stronger than light because it’s really thick and gloppy), a mousse (I like Suave and Tresseme), or hair spray. A friend of mine uses a dry shampoo, but I’ve never tried it. You can also use an anti humidity spray, or a smoothing cream. It depends on the texture of your hair.
Anonymous asked: I mean like when it's down it looks like I have an Afro! (Same person from the last one)
I would recommend seeing if you can find a product that will let you smooth down the top and let the rest hang. Followers? Any input?
Anonymous asked: I have thick curly hair that reaches my butt, when it's wet. And I my shoulders when it's dry. My hair is too thick to wear down! I try a lot of products but nothing works. I feel really insecure with my hair because it's always in a pony tail, braid, or a bun. And my friends started asking to wear it down, but I can't. Anything you recomend?
What do you mean it’s too thick to wear down? (That can mean several things) can you give me more specifics? thanks!
Anonymous asked: I have thick frizzy hair about medium length and it seems like my hair never grows any longer than that, even when I go get it trimmed and I would really like for my hair to grow longer. So if theres any suggestions that would be great!
You’ve pretty much reached your “terminal length” i.e the length where your hair breaks off faster than it grows. I’d suggest using a lot of conditioner and cutting out heat as much as you can. Also protein and vitamins can help your hair grow stronger, which will help it grow longer.
koalastwee asked: Hi! So ever since i was little i've wanted to grow my hair out super long. The only problem is that i have SO much hair that it gives me headaches whenever I put it up once it hits a certain length. Currently I have it to mid back, entirely layered starting below my chin. I want to grow it longer, but don't want to get migraines from it! Someone told me to get it thinned out, but I don't want split ends either! Is there any way for me to live a long haired life?!
Also my hair is straight with some body, but no waves. If that helps! Puffiness isn’t a problem for me…
I’d suggest using more than one pony tail holder and wearing it low on your head. I had the same problem (my hair is waist length) when I’d use one elastic and wear my pony tail high on my head. I also started using spin clips on buns because they disperse the weight.
Anonymous asked: After looking through this blog I'm seeing a pattern of people with curly, frizzy hair who don't know how to tame it; I want to offer my solution. I have thick hair (on a good day it poofs four inches off my neck, on a bad day or when I'm forcing it it goes higher than seven) that's far past my butt, and it's ringlett curls to boot. A product I've found that works miracles is Ouidad Climate Control - it locks curls and contains frizz for a day or even two. It's done wonders for my hair.
Anonymous asked: Hi! So, I have insanely thick hair. But it's straight, as well. And it's coarse. I really want soft hair, and I've tried lots of things. I use a great conditioner and leave-in conditioner. And I also sometimes use a hydrating mist. While they do help to make it softer, it's still coarse. Do you have any tips?
I’m going to open this up to the followers- From what I’ve been told, there’s not much you can do with course hair. Any suggestions?
