HOW THE HELL DO YOU DO IT?!?! >____>

My hair is medium length now. But unfortunately for me I have that wavey/curly hair type, bleh. So in order for me to keep it how I like it I have to take a shower all the time and then use gel on it.. which causes it to become hard, still, and slimey. And then eventually gel or not my hair goes from the straightness and all, to what's seems like a flattened ball on my head. Not even a style.

Ahhh. Help, what products or things should I do to get my hair the way I want it and keep it that way? How do you guys manage it?

I don't do anything but wash it. My hair is long and straight on it's own, and it's fucking gorgeous.

But hey, at least you have a 10% chance of absolutely guaranteeing failure.

Pick a hairstyle that your hair can handle? I've just got naturally straight hair. A casual blow dry after the shower and I'm straighter than Michael Douglas.

do something with your hair without having to go out of your way like that.

i have really curly hair and back in middle school i had it short and i tried to spike it and it never worked. sometimes i would spend 20 minutes in front of the mirror. (i know.. sad) i finally gave up and didn't cut my hair for like 7 months.

best decision i ever made lol.

but seriously. i don't think you should go so much out of your way to try to style your hair if your hair isn't even like that to begin with.

but that's just my opinion.

I have the same problem. (effin beaner genes! )
i use to straighten it but then i got too lazy for that. So now the best thing to do is use good shampoo, and conditioner and right when you get out of the shower, get a towel and dry the EXCESS amount of water from your hair and then get a hair tie and put in a pony tail. I do that until my hair is dry and when it is I take out the hair tie and there you go. Beauitful long man hair.
#18
shower with shampoo and conditioner then when you get out the shower IMMEDIATELY comb it. dry it slowly. comb it again.
boom

For me i had teh kinda akward phaase where it didn't look as well but when its longer its much better....i just comb my hair then take a shower with shampoo and conditioner then come for a while afterwards and it stays pretty straight except for some of the ends that get a lil wavy.
#24
I may not have the type of hair best suited fo rwhat I want... but I've been told that I look a lot better with longer/straighter hair, so yea..

To the guy who posted the pic.. lucky :/... but I don't even need it that straight, hell, I would be happy if I had something like Jack White's hair...
#25
Mine looks funny when you straighten it =]

You really just gotta take one day to experiment with it to find a pattern you can follow to keep it nice.

TS, you should put your hair in a 'fro. 'Fros rawk.

I'll be living vicariously through you, incidentally. I wish I could get a 'fro.
#27
pretty safe bet that i possess the most epic hair in UG.

ON-TOPIC:see a stylist, preferably a woman. guy stylists like to get jealous of teh long hair. like always, keep it clean. it will seem longer brushed, but don't overdo it. Brushing stresses the hair follicle, thus hindering growth.

When I first started growing my hair out I got to a point where my hair looked ****ing retarted. My fair practically curled 180 degrees. I used to try everything and nothing work, as it got longer it got better. When my hair is about chin length it will curl forward about 80degrees. But when it's shoulder length, I don't have anyproblems with it curling. I don't even need to dry my hair anymore. It seems like the longer your hair gets the more tamed it gets.
