I have pretty cool hair, i think. A lot of people agree with me. It's just, it's not that soft. It's not dry or damaged or anything, it just isn't as soft as other peoples hair.

Does UG have any advice on getting softer hair? Preferably without buying a special product, unless it's a shampoo or conditioner.

BTW, right now I use Garnier Fructis. It works good, but my hair isn't as soft as I'd like it.

Please help.

pretty much any good "bed head" conditioner will work wonders. my girlfriend works at this fancy salon and she's always bringing me awesome bed head stuff.

ye, a conditioner does help

Edit: basicly, leave the conditioner in your hair as long as possible.

If you already have a conditioner, try leaving it in longer.
For example:
Use and rinse your shampoo.
Work the conditioner into your hair.
Use your soap on the rest of your body and rinse.
Rinse the conditioner out.

That's what I do. It's worth a try, at least.

Shampoo it twice! Wash your hair once, then again straight after. Then slap some conditioner on and off you go
#10
Condition it, then apply some leave-in conditioner after it is a bit drier.

I feel so delightfully metrosexual posting in this thread. Which may not be a good thing.

Exactly. My boss was a hairdresser for 30 years, and that's what he told me. Shampoo twice, then conditioner once. And I've got some hair moisturiser as well which makes it smell and feel good

That's your problem you wash it far too often it becomes greasy a lot more quickly than if you washed it less.

Besides twice a day is just a ridiculous hassle.

you should have directed this towards the girls of UG in the title

Joico's K Pak Reconstructer (shampoo & conditioner) works miracles.

Cheaper and amazing smelling is American Crew Citrus Mint shampoo & conditioner

Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

Huh, I use Garnier and my hair is ridiculously soft. People just want to touch it all the time.

I personally dont like conditioners because it just makes my hair look greasy.

Maybe I just have slightly oil hair which in turn keeps it soft...

Try the new pearl protein stuff, I think it's Garnier or something. It's pink, Then shampoo like twice and condition like. Also straighten it and brush a lot. That's what I do, anyway.

Everyone has oily hair. Conditioner is used to replace the oils that you wash out with shampoo.

Yay for Garnier Fructis! Try the Sleek and Shine kind along with conditioner every once in a while. Also, try to air dry it when you can. However, there are people out there that simply have coarse hair. I've got it easy since my hair is thin, fine, and shoulder length.

Let it dry naturally.

Works for me.



Always blow dry your hair.

My hair always go frizzy if I don't blow dry it. And it becomes greasy after 5 hours.

Do you use the Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine? I use that all the time, and it makes my hair really soft. I use a buttload of the conditioner, though, and I comb it through my hair so it gets evenly distributed. And then I let it soak into my hair for a couple of minutes before I wash it out.

Works for me.

you wont get softer hair without buying new shampoo and conditioner.

also do not use a blow dryer ever.

Quote by auditorylove
NEVER blow dry. use a flat iron if neccessary. heat=damage

Flat irons cause just as much damage, and possibly more so, because the heat is both higher and more centralized.

But they do make your hair softer. If you gotz the cash to spare, buy a Chi. They're amazing.

My hairs so soft and in such good condition that i'm currently a competition hair model so listen up...

every time you shower (once a day preferably)...

1. shampoo once or twice

2. condition it once

3. dry it as much as you can with the towel THEN blow dry it if you must

4. Only straighten it on special occasions ie. not every day

yeah, shampooing too much strips your hair of its natural oils which make it soft, so i wouldn't shampoo too much too often. i'm not saying it doesn't work for this guy, just that it might not work for everyone else

Not MORE damage if you let your hair air dry first, which I meant by no blow dry. It's more heat, but if you do it right and only go over each piece just once, its less. You can also turn the setting to low, in which its less heat. If you blow dry AND flat iron well then.. good luck. I do that, but I'm a girl and can handle these things. My hair is awesome.

i have this spray on conditioner stuff that i spray on my hair after im done washing it and then i towel dry it. its also smells awesome.

This is a myth perpetuated by people who don't know the proper way to use a blow dryer.

STOP when the exterior is just dry.
There will be enough moisture remaining inside the hair shaft to prevent damage.

Overdrying WILL cause damage, but you need not overdry.

Me too, on all three counts.

I usually blow-dry it first, to get some of the kinks out (because my hair is naturally kinky), and then I go over it with a flat-iron.

Yeah, it kind of fries it, but that's where conditioner comes in.

OH MY GOD!!! im not the only man using hair conditioner? woo hoo...

but my problem is that...im losing a lot of hair...i mean a whole lot of it...any ideas how to prevent it?

I use conditioner. Garnier Fructis for dry and damaged hair, both shampoo and conditioner.

i let my hair dry naturally this morning, and it worked a little bit. tomorrow i will shampoo twice, and see if that helps.

i have some Suave Sleek Smoothing Cream, that you put in your hair and leave it. It makes my hair greasy, not soft.

Maybe if i get some of that shampoo that straightens hair. cause my hair is very wavy and stuff.



my hair is kind of like that, but a little bit longer in the back, and more flippy at the bottom.
