What should I do about my hair problems?

Asked by: Raspberry Angel 541 views Hair , , , ,

My hair is really thick, dry and naturally curly, but not curls you notice. It just kinda ‘poofs’ out the side of my head, which has resulted in a lot of teasing that really hurts. Lots of people say, get a better conditioner or shampoo, but none of the shampoo’s or conditioners I use actually work. My hairstylist said that she can give me a straight-perm, but it costs 200$ which is money I don’t have. I straighten my hair sometimes, but it usually takes 2 hours and I don’t have that kind of time. I’ve been using deep conditioner after deep conditioner, smoothing cream, you name it and I’ve probably used it, but nothing works. I have a picture of my hair, it is the fifth post down.

    Oh gosh, curly hair is a doozie. I didn’t figure out my hair till I was about 16. Leave in conditioners are best for curly hair. Only brush your hair before you put in the leave in conditioner. Let it dry before you go to bed or if you shower in the morning, let it dry before hair spraying it. Hair spray is curly girl’s best friend. :P Shower conditioners are good for detangling curly hair, but they tend to weigh it down. I used one for a few years and quit. I have not had a rat in my hair since using Herbal Essence conditioner, but I haven’t used the product in about two years. As far as shampoo goes, it’s best to use anything that doesn’t stick to the hair. Right now, I’m using avocado pit shampoo (http://freethinkingcavewoman.blogspot.co… with aloe vera gel and organix brazilian keratin shampoo (http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productD… My hair has never been smoother and feels so clean too! Plus, I’m saving money! XDFor leave in conditioner, Yes 2 Carrots is great. For cheaper, Suave Professionals leave in conditioner is also great, but I use flaxseed hair gel homemade. Here’s that recipe:bring to boil 2 cups of water stirring occasionallyadd 1/4 cup of flaxseedsonce boiling, stir vigorously for 5-10 minuteswhen it creates a slight thin foamy film, stir more and turn to medium-high,when it bubbles incredible less and starts showing a dark brown color and slight thickness feeling, turn off heat, remove from heat, and stir a little moredrain into bowl using a hand strainerpoor into mason jar for storagerepeat process with same seedsadd 1/8 tsp. epsom salt and stir it in welladd 1/8 tsp. rose water for scentadd 4 drop vitamin e-oil for hair growthstore in frigI’m not sure whether it’s the flaxseed hair gel or the avocado pit shampoo, but when I straightened my bangs the other day, I saw some highlights. I’ve never had highlights and have never done anything to my hair color. My hair is brown, so I don’t know if you’ll have the same thing happen, but it’s pretty cool. Also, my hair used to take around an hour and a half being shoulder length to straighten. Now, at a little longer length, it takes about 30-45 minutes.Best of luck with your hair!

    Edit Steps 1 Try to use at least one moisturizing product per week. When purchasing a moisturizer look for "Hydrator", "Moisturizer" etc. In this case, it is recommended yo use both Reconstructor and Moisturizer. Shampoo first. Towel dry gently; dab, don’t rub Apply Reconstructor for 5 minutes Rinse Gently towel dry again Apply Moisturizer or Hydrator. Wrap hair in a plastic wrap; leave on for 10-15 minutes Rinse Blow dry2After using these treatments your hair will not be dry, brittle or dull ( This treatment has been used when hair was burnt from chemical re-bonding, after 2 treatments & a 2 cm trim you could never tell it was burnt.)3Brush your hair and apply some light oil on your hair or serum. Light oil will give the best results but you can use coconut oil instead.4Do this at night so that the oil can rest and spread around your head in at least 12 hours.5When you wake take a shower and wash with shampoo and conditioner.6Let your hair dry.7Put a small amount of oil on hands & rub, smooth on to hair, and leave it there. Your hair will be really shiny and smooth.8Put a bit of Oil every week, to maintain that beautiful, healthy looking shine.9When brushing your hair in the morning use the soft brushes with the sponge-like base used for less pull on tangles and wash the brush just rinse it then dry it carefully and dry the base but avoid drying the bristles too well now when you brush your hair it will look shiny, feel soft and not wet!Edit Tips Condition your hair more so it gets softer. But don’t do it everyday or you may get greasy hair or you may get a lot of build-up. Cut the ends of your hair every six to eight weeks. Split ends should be cut too. Another way to get shiny and smooth hair is to add vinegar and cold water together and apply to your hair at night and wake up in the morning and wash it. Do this every day for about 2/3 weeks. Hair will be shiny and soft. If you like, you can make your hair smell nice by putting a cup of strawberries in the blender. Then put it on your hair for 20 minutes. Rinse your hair with cold water and you are ready to go!

    I have faced same problem like you, my hair is too much of curly and many people used to gave many suggestions to me. But i got nothing, now i am using serum for my hair straightening. After head bath you have to spray the serum on your hair part, then it gives the shining and straightness to your hair.

    Extreme heat, cold or sun exposure can leave hair dry, brittle and damaged. You may even be contributing to the problem in the way you wash and shampoo it. But there are steps you can take to restore your damaged hair and prevent it from going dry again.http://www.remyvirginfulllace.info/treat…

    Damaged hair arrives with too numerous complications–split finishes, brittleness, even hair breakage. This is often initiated by too much blow drying, extended exposure to the sun, and also the use of hair chemicals such as colorants. Fortunately, even the most badly-damaged hair can still be remedied. There are ways to restore impaired hair to its former days of being healthy and shiny…..Read more information at here:http://www.shortremyhair.info/how-to-res…

    Use anything that has argan oil in it. My stylist uses pro naturals moroccan argan oil on my hair, their products are sulfate, sodium and silicone free so they’re super moisturizing. I currently use them at home too and my hair feels healthier.
