I'm fairly pale, and I have blue eyes.

Here's a (bad) picture of me, somewhat recently



EDIT: Haha, alright. I'll try and get some color.

Honestly though, I'm not sure I'd want to do it gradually or partially. I'd rather just do it all at once. And I don't necessarily want it real light, just a dark blonde at most.

Also another concern: I am a pitcher on a high school baseball team, and they might not tolerate the long hair, but that is a while away so **** it.


I never got answered with the bold above. i figure its a noobish question but i don't want to go about doin' it wrong.

I have extremely curly hair, and it always gets really knotted in back. It sucks. Thought I'd share.

Alright, I've got a question.

I've got shoulder length hair, kind of like Dave Mustaine's but a dark blonde. I like it, but it frizzes a lot. Any suggestions for controlling it?

I've been using some kind of frizz control shampoo for a while now, I'm not even sure of the brand, but its orange colored and it's in some kind of wavy bottle, almost like this

) )
( (

Would I be better off using something else?

i would put a little bit of mousse in it. not gel or anything. like dove brand mousse will keep the frizz down, but it wont feel like there's any product in your hair...
but if you wanted it to be straight, then get a flat iron and run it through your hair to get rid of the frizz

Yeah, my hair does that, too. I just put a ton of conditioner in it when showering and brush it out.

Hmm...You can always try out different hair products until you find one you like. Also, as ForNow..WeToast said, mousse makes a lot of difference.

Quick question:

My hair is shorter in the front than it is in the back. In the front, it comes down to about my chin, and in the back, it's at/a little past my shoulders (I have a pic in my profile, but it's quite a bit longer than that). Should I even it up?

I understand it may be hard without a recent pic.

I has chemically straightened hair. So anyone who's thinking of doing it can give me a bell if you want.

Do you want to grow your hair longer? If so, then go ahead and even it up. Otherwise, it's really up to you. Also, my mom has had her hair chemically straightened. I don't know the process or anything, but it does work very well. You do need to go in and do maintenance every 6 or so months.

At my local hair salon, it costs about $300. I don't know how much yours will charge.

I'm not entirely sure how it works to be honest. They put some stuff in your hair and leave it for about an hour or so before they wash it out. The downside is that is strips your hair of its natural chemicals, so then they condition it and whatever to put some of the moisture back in. That's pretty much the first part.

Because of the moisture thing again, you put some cream stuff in it once every day and you're recommended to only wash it once a week. If it gets wet, it will go curly again, that kind of sucks.

So when I wash it, I do all the normal stuff then I blowdry it straight. That makes it easier to straighten and then when you do put the straighteners over it, it just thins it basically and makes it look awesome

When my roots start to come in curly, I just straighten as close to my scalp as I can. I've had my hair straight for about a year now, but I've only returned once to get my roots done. So yeah, it lasts as long as you can make it last.

As for the person who asked about cost, the initial straightening cost me 30 ($60) and it took a couple of hours. The one time I went to get my roots done, it cost 20 ($40). To give you an idea how well it works, heres a before and after picture-

$300?! Mine was a fifth of that!

Before (guess which I am, haha)

Stoned 2 days ago-



Sorry about the super-long answer.
