 Hi my names Makayla and I LOVE straight hair. I can't stand curly hair. ONe time awhile back, my mom took my straightner away from me because she told me she hated straight hair. I couldnt stop crying and I snuck out to buy a straightner. Some girls look cute with curly hair, but I sure don't. I just love how straight hair looks manageable and clean and smooth. Curly hair sometimes looks like you havent brushed your hair in days. lol. but anyway, sometimes I have trouble taming my straight hair down because after I spend about an hour making it straight, it goes back to being frizzy. What could  I do to tame it down a little bit?

problems with 'the wave' [13 Feb 2008|09:40am]

[ mood | confused ]

my hair is past my shoulders about 4-5 inches. i have naturally wavy and thick hair, which i cannot stand anymore. i've had my Conair straightener for almost a year now, and i love it, but i want to see if there are any products out there that could make my hair straight (or straighter) without having to iron it everyday. so far i've tried Sunsilk Straighten Up shampoo, conditioner, and the creme stuff. and i'm currently using Sunsilk Anti-Poof shampoo, conditioner, and a combo of the Straighten Up creme and the Anti-Poof creme. but, to my disappointment, none of them work. any suggestions for a good shampoo/conditioner/any other product combo that would help with my problem? for a fairly low price?

Hey, I'm new here.
I have very thick, kinda long hair. It's really curly, and I got it layered a while ago but am letting the layers grow out which makes it worse. I'm looking for a straightener that works good with really thick hair, and doesn't take forever. I also want one that wont damage my hair, as it is already a little fryed. I'm thinking about a professional Remmington. Any suggestions?

Hey everyone. My name's Sissy and I'm 17. I have really wavy hair. I've straightened it almost every day for the past 6 years. I don't have a problem with doing it but I was just wondering if anyone has any ideas on a new look I could go for? My face is pretty round and I hate it but I want to keep my hair the same length as it is now and straight but I want it kind of choppy. And ideas?

Hey. I'm new here.

I've been fighting with my very curly hair for awhile, and just when I find a product that really, really kept it perfect all day (even through running frantically in the halls at school) it seems to have been discontinued. I'm wondering if anyone's heard of anything similar.

It came in a little container with a screw off cap like a pomade or hair wax and was blue with a silver cap. I think it was made either by Zero Frizz (most likely) or Frizz Ease. It was a white cream and it was a finishing balm that you apply when you're done blowdrying/using the flat iron.

It seemed to seal all humidity out and kept even my hair pin straight. I loved it. I used to get it at Walmart.

I use this stuff called Secret Weapon now but it's nowhere near as good.

I have a nice Chi straightener that I adore but without a nice finishing cream it's all a wasted effort. Help anyone?

EDIT: I wonder if this community's even active. I didn't noticed the date. Sooo .. whatever. XD

is there a way to permanently straighten your hair at home? i can't do that shit every day. it doesn't have to REALLY be permanent, even once every couple days or a week would be okay.

also, samurai. yay or nay?

My hair is pin straight or always some where near it. And my hair must hate me with all the spilt ends and such. I'm suffering from split ends and dead ends. I've tried one type of deep conditioner and it makes my hair feel heavy and gross. So does anyone have tips on what to do to keep from having split ends instead of running to a salon every month?

sedu hair straightener [10 Oct 2005|11:40pm]
i was thinking about buying a sedu hair straightener. but i have a few questions before i buy it. is it as good as they say it is? does it cut your hair straightening time in half? and the big question.. does it repel humidity? i live in pennsylvania so we get some bad humidity. so will the sedu hair straightener leave your hair silky smooth even in the highest of humidity? my current hair straightener does but sometimes it pulls on my hair so i was thinking about the sedu. i read some reviews at folica.com and all of them were great. pages and pages of possitive reviews. so many more than the chi and solia. please help me out. i really want this hair straightener but i just want to make sure it's as perfect as everyone says it is.

Can anyone recommend a product that will help keep my hair straight? I have no problems getting it straight, but as soon as I step out into Florida's hot humidity, it frizzes and waves back up.

And also, have you found it easier to keep longer or shorter hair straight? My hair is currently below my shoulder blades and I am considering cutting it above my shoulders, but I'm worried it will frizz and curl worse.

questionnns [23 Sep 2005|04:21pm]

[ mood | curious ]

hey, im new :)
I have long red hair, and it's naturally straight, thick, and a bit coarse. I blowdry it completely straight, but reading the posts here I'm worried about the damage I might be doing to my hair :( My grandmother's always told me flat irons fry your hair and blowdrying is better between the two. If blowdrying is better... I'm 16, and I'm still job searching so I don't have a lot of money, but it'd be awesome if you guys could give me some suggestions on flat irons that are under $30 and won't ruin my hair, or make it dry.

I also read in a comment posted here that pantene puts a layer of WAX on your hair? Is that true? I've been using it the last couple of weeks and now I'm not sure if I should switch back to Dove?

Here's my hair: Read more...Collapse )

questions! [22 Aug 2005|03:36pm]

First of all, have any of you used this hair dryer http://conair.com/conair/products/detail.jsp?product=351
the shape and everything looks like it would be ideal for getting your hair straighter while blow drying it. So any input on it?

And second, I'd like to make a weird reccomendation, for those of you with lighter hair or light highlights, I mix a tad bit of jergens soft shimmer skin radiance moisturizer with my frizz-ease wind down relaxing creme and it REALLY keeps my hair super straight all day. Plus the shimmer brings out my highlights and looks awesome. It's pretty light weight so as long as you dont go over board it doesn't greasify your hair either.

Oh and I almost forgot, what does everyone think of the glass-plated straighteners? I saw one at fred meyer today, and was kind of curious.

More gorgeous girlies... [28 Jul 2005|10:08pm]

Ok, here are a few hair styles belonging to various celebrities that I want to steal. This is what I aim for when straightening. It may be superficial but... I don't care. Hope you like it!

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us Ok so maybe her hair isn't DEAD straight but she's so freaking beautiful I don't care!

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us Straight, side swept fringes are sooo cute

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us Straight black hair reflects light more than any other type, making it looks really healthy and shiny. (Am very tempted to dye my hair a few shades darker after the summer, but I'm a bit worried about the damage - I don't want to trash my hair. I'm allergic to split ends)

Hate to give you nightmares, but always remember: here is an example of how you DON'T want your hair, lol
