Well, my hair doesn't grow "down", it grows "out". What I mean is, it basically naturally layers over itself, so it forms something that resembles an afro when grown too long. Because of this, I've had to keep my hair really short for most of my life, simply because it looked pretty stupid when grown too long (afros look pretty cool, but the way my hair grows out just looks weird :P). With my hair short, I've spiked it over the years. Lately though, it's been getting really tedious having to spike it everyday.

So my question is, is there a way make hair that grows "out" grow "down"?

Thanks UG

Nope. I same hair as you and I've tried everything. Is it wavy? Because mine's wavy and grows out in layers....Sucks, eh? It won't grow down because it's curly. You can't change that.

I have the opposite problem, my hair is too damn straight and grows straight down. I've been growing it out for almost a year and it's the longest it's ever been in my life but it goes straight down and it's just barely too short to put it up in a ponytail, so I have to wear a hat or I look horrendous.

Just waiting for it to get a little longer...

My hair sucks, also...it grows fairly straight on the top, but all curly on the sides, thus making it look horrendous whenever I do anything but spike it up. I guess I'll be joining that group now...

I'll join. I've even tried straightening my hair to go down, and it didn't work. I feel like an idiot. The only time my hair was straight was when I had a mohawk.

This is what you do: wait until it is about 6 inches long and go to a hair salon and have it relaxed. You may want to repeat it a couple times. Once your hair is nice and long, it'll go down like normal hair. That's what I did and my hair is currently approaching 18 inches.

I have the same problem. Thick hair that's somewhat curly and likes to look puffy :P

i think I have the same hair as you, you'd have to check my profile pic though, but you go to a hair shop, ask them to thin it. Then they will, as the name implies, cut some layers out making your hair thinner, It'll hang down more. You'll have to keep getting thinned as you grow it out so it grows down. Then you might get some hair like early Chuck Schuldiner.
#24
I have a weird solution. But it works for me. I shower about half an hour to an hour before I go to bed. When I get out, I blow dry then brush my hair. At this point its all lumpy and "out" like you said. but when I go to bed I put a beanie on. The beanie flattens my hair and makes it look WAY better. Not really straightened, but just good. try it.
If you think things can't get worse it's probably only because you lack sufficient imagination.
#25
the longer you grow it the more "down" it will lay, also thining it out and layering it will help. my hairs the same way to... but its not curley.... go figure

I have straight hair =] grows straight down. Nice and thick, jet black. Only problem is that my hair tends to curl up at the end. =[

Mines somewhat like that. it gets puffy, and all ADOIASJODIASJD when the wind blows.

I tried straiting it (lol ) god...that freakin ***t hurt like ***K! and at the end it looked to freaking gay. seriously it looked preety freaking gay. good thing it wasnt permanent so all I had to do is put some water and it went back to normal.

I have heard that there's something that you can do to your hair and it makes it completly straight, but it costs like $500 or so

yea but that would be really expensive and incredibly bad for your hair, I wanna do it just so I could have perfectly straight hair, but it's close enough so I probably won't bother

hair grows out until its long enough to grow downwards

Im half black and I have incredibly wavy hair when short, but as it grows longer it gets straighter, though I do have to straighten it everyday if I want to look presentable/damn sexy.

I put on a bit of vegetable oil to moisturize my hair before straightening and that seems to work wonders and gives it a really healthy look. Also have your hair layered and thinned once it is of moderate length.
I've been here since '04.

#35
I'm black and so my hair would be a frizzy/kinky/nappy....Quite similar to Slash's hair if I grew it out to that length.
My hair's to my shoulders now, after I cut the dreadlocks a while ago.

Mother likes to chemically treat my hair with relaxer [makes your hair straight], which is a product you could easily buy at a drug store or something in a box for like....5-10 dollars and do yourself or have a friend help you, but I most definately don't recommend it if you have a sensitive scalp or anything like that. Some can harm your hair, some take out certain chemicals and all of that stuff.
Maybe you could ask someone who works at a salon, they'll recommend you something, you can buy it at a store and they can do it for you.
#36
I have had the the same problem with wavey hair mine straight on top and curlier on the sides. This took me a while to do but keep getting the sides cut out and let it gown long on top i mean you have to go thru a few ****e hair cuts but it works out in end. Also get this down at a good salon because they will layer it so when its growing it wont look so bad.

i asked my dad, hes a hairdresser (hes not gay)

yeah your screwed
shave your head alot
then it wont grow in any direction
#39
It's just not long enough, is all. Unless you have black-person hair, you will not have an afro. Once you grow it out a bit more, it will be more weighted and grow down. Some things to help are:
- Deep conditioners. Having poofy hair does not help the situation. This will calm it down and probably add a little weight.
- Pomade. It'll weigh your hair down too, and if you put it near the roots while your hair is still kinda damp and blowdry downwards, your hair will be more likely to stay down.
- Cutting in layers. If it's all one straight thing.. it'll be poofier at the bottom and stick out. This way, the hair underneath wont push the hair on top outwards.

Keep it short. I used to have long hair and got it cut awhile ago, much easier and much more comfy. I don't get anymore what the appeal is to people other than "u can headbangz wiht it!!!!1!"
