Pit, the time has come. It is time for me to cut this mop that has been resting atop my cranium for six years straight. Normally, this problem would require very basic thinking and a couple hours of one's time. But here's my dilemma; I have very curly hair. It takes fifty minutes to de-tangle in the shower, and 10 minutes to clean. It is almost always frizzy, even when tied back and I just can't deal with it anymore. It really is that frustrating. First-world problems, yay. Or if you're reading this, Devourke, whatever you class Australia as.

The only issue is that short curly hair looks equally off-putting. If I choose to cut my mane, I want to make sure it's worth the trouble. I need pictures of people with curly, short hair, who DON'T look creepy. Give me hope, Pit. Or at least try to.

If I had curly hair I'd shave it all off and become a skinhead so no one would know.

Not that tight. Here's an unfortunate photo my brother took of me at the start of the year. Yes, I am wearing random clashing items of clothing, but it's all I have to work with.

My hair was made of ringlets bro. I'm too lazy to copy paste all the advice we gave you in the self conscious thread, but all that advice is gold

Straighten your hair like all the cool kids in those metalcore bands these days. That's what you kids listen to ... metalcore right?

luckily, I have ridiculously straight hair. People ask me why I straighten it constantly. Well at least before I got really tall, now they just ask me if I play basketball every damn day

Yeah. Makes it EXTREMELY frizzy and 9 times out of 10, breaks the comb.

There's always straightening.

Looks like if you get it to about ear length or less, you could work with it. Regardless, you should probably tame that mane
#17
Yep. Cut it short. Comb it when it's still wet and style with pomade.

My hair is about 3 inches all over when stretched out. That works with what I'm talking about. Your curls are a little tighter than mine, but it would still work for you. But since your hair is so long already, you might want to leave it longer and see how it works for you until you decided if you want it longer.

Yes. Australians are just so backwards.

What I would like is the sort of ear-length or shorter 'stylishly messy' look, if you know what I mean. The only reason I've kept this hair for so long is for consistencies' sake. I was really, really, really shy as a kid, and grew it out thinking it'd afford me some sort of identity (yeah, I know.) Around grade 11, when I stopped caring, I just kept it long because it had essentially become part of who I am and it felt right. But I'm out of school, in the 'real world' now, and am a whole different person. I'd like to make a few changes.

Yeah definitely go with pomade. Combing works for me because it breaks up the curls. But it might not work with longer hair. But the pomade keeps it from being frizzy, but doesn't make it all crunchy. It keeps the shape too, but still looks natural.

I've decided on what I want to do. Cheers, everyone. If my hair isn't how I like it at ear-length, etc., then I'll look into permanent straightening. I really don't like curly hair, so that's always a last resort.

I kinda feel for you bro. I have curly hair and I know what a pain it is to look after. I suggest either keep it long and maybe or grow it longer, or shave it completely off. It kinda looks stupid in between in my opinion.

Also try going to the hair thread for more advice.

Yeah. Well. I sympathise, but my only semi-successful solutions have been:

a) not brush it. Ever. Just wash it every few days and kind of pull the tangles out with the fingers. Importantly - use conditioner, plenty of, as that'll stop it getting too dry (and thus smooth out some of the knotting and frizz)

b) shave it all off and enjoy the lack of cleaning products and all that light airy breeze stuff playing over your scalp. Then enjoy the months of ever changing hairstyles until it reaches original length, allowing you to find your ideal length.


May affect the outcome: how thick is your hair? Is it just really voluminous from all that frizz, or does it grow thickly? Is it fine strands or more wiry/heavier?
