I'm going to this place. They specialize in dreads. Also, I had my friends do it a month or so ago. They didn't do such a great job and my parents made me comb them out the next day.

What do you guys think I should do with my hair? Pics in my profile. I kind of like it the way it is now because of small waves and like it curls at the bottom but I would like it long again, maybe as long as I used to have it or longer or somewhere in between. idk Help me!

I COULD but the process is incredibly painful and last time it took 10 hours. I think I'm gonna give it one more shot. If I can find a place that will actually do it, that is...

Dude, don't get dreads, especially if it takes that long, and it's probably not even worth it. I'm growing my hair out like that myself.

This is a bit late for a few people, but there was a bit of misinformation floating around in the thread about a certain subject, and it was really bothering me. Yes, I mean you Tom Hatton.

When it comes to chemically straightening hair, there are pretty much two ways it can be done.

1. 'Relaxing'

This is what Hatton is talking about. It doesn't make your hair perfectly straight, but it's a lot cheaper and not as hard on your hair. As the name would imply, it relaxes your curls and makes it a bit straighter.

2. 'Chi' or 'Japanese' straightening

This is the expensive, lengthy process. However, it makes your hair perfectly straight, permanently.

Both, however, need to be repeated as your hair grows out. As, obviously, it doesn't change the way your hair grows naturally. Nothing can.

Too late, I'm already set on it. Also, it only took that long because my friends, who had never done it before were trying to do it.

Yes, that's how mine is done. I wasn't aware of the other version... to be honest relaxing just takes a lot of the weight out of your hair, making it easier to straighten. It works best on black hair though... if you just have a white man fro or something, I wouldn't recommend it.

*looks at profile*
You could put blonde tips on your fringe/sidebangs, or put it on the back spikey part, which I think you sorta did on one of your pics. Anyway, I'd highly recommend going to a hair place for it because doing it yourself can turn ugly (trust me on this).

Yeah it does, and sometimes conditioner will make your hair greasy if you don't wash it out really well (I used to have this problem all the time), so make sure you get all the conditioner out really really well. If that doesn't help anything or at least make your hair get greasy less quickly, try changing shampoo/conditioner. On top of that, avoid touching your hair as much as possible, because that also makes it greasy. oo and most importantly, take showers every day especially if you play sports. Dirty hair = greasy hair.


If none of that helps, I dunno what to tell you, you might just naturally have hair that gets greasy quickly.

My hair is pissing me off. It's kinda long right now, a little bit longer than my chin... Problem is, it's really wavy, and uncontrollable. I wish to keep it this length but only a little more straight and that stays in the way I want to to. Also, I wish to keep the fringe since my eyebrows are a little faulty and my forehead is somehow big...

I was thinking either Chemical Straightening or buying those hair irons. Any tips?

Either one could work. Chemical Straightening is quite expensive and takes a while, but it will permanently straighten your hair. Of course, you have to go back in when your roots grow out some, because they won't be straight. Using a flat iron would just be a daily thing.

I've already done Chemical Straightening and worked out for only 3 weeks, approximately. It wasn't the Oriental Straightening or whatever it's called... And another problem is that I wash my hair about 3-4 times a week since its really hot here

I also tried using "Nivea Straight and easy" shampoos and conditioners, still no good results.

Are good Hair irons very expensive? And will their efficiency remain good with use?

I dunno about the irons really. Just shop around. The Chemical Straightening that I was talking about it probably the Oriental Straightening that you're thinking of. My mom had it done and her hair is bone straight all the time. Also, she washes her hair almost everyday. It cost her $300, though.

No, the straightening I did was only about 10euros. I'll just look around for those hair iron things.

Any other tips on how to take care of wavy hair?

Blowdrying can help for wavy hair. It won't make it straight but if you dry your fringe with the dryer above your hair pointing downwards and go in the direction you want your fringe to go it's easier to style it. You can also do the opposite for the back to get a bit of volume in there.

For irons, if you're going to be using it regularly you should get a good quality one. GHD Stylers heat to 200 degrees very quickly, at that temperature you can get the job done quickly and efficiently and the plates protect your hair from damage. They are rather expensive though.

6 inches isn't long at all. You should probably grow it out some more.

You could try it out but they're a bitch to get out if you decide they don't look good yet. Everyone I know who has ever had dreads started with long hair and they looked good.

You can get dreads at 6 inches and they would probably turn out better in the long run. Also keep in mind that your hair gets about 20% shorter when it gets dreaded. Also, the fatter the dreads, the shorter they are.
