Shampoo??


Recommended Posts

So naturally my hair is curly, but I usually iron it. Problem is, I like a lot of volume, but I have really thick hair, & it doesn't blow-dry very well, so I have no choice but to iron it. When I iron it, it turns our pretty flat & boring.

 

Anyone have any suggestions? I currently use Head&Shoulders, only because my stylist told me that it keeps hair dry, thereforee causing more volume.

 

& please don't suggest "teasing" it, cuz it turns out very pornstar-ish lol

 

Thanks in advance!!

paul mitchell makes a straightening serum. its a little bit like gel. you work a dime-sized amount of it through your hair before drying, and it tames it. you can run an iron over the ends of your hair afterwards, instead of your whole head.

 

i don't know if regular stores sell it, though. you can find it at salons or online.

 

theres not many shampoos that will actually help. usually you have to use them in conjuction with a plethora of other products and it becomes expensive and time-consuming.

 

have you ever considered a japanese-straight?

Drying out your hair will also cause it to go limp. Try a nice volumizing shampoo with a bit of volumizing conditioner at the ends. I always liked Fructis or even Pantene. Obviously a Redken or Paul Mitchell would be great- but who can afford that with gas at 4 bucks!?!? Really try to get most of your straightening done with your blow dryer. Use a nice flat brush and when it's almost dry tip your head upside down and brush down.

 

Also: I use a curling iron at my crown (large barrel) to round out the top and give it nice volume. Then just brush out what is too "curled".

 

I can talk hair all day!! haha

 

Ya, any shampoo made for volume really does help a bit, and conditioner in small amounts will help make it more bouncy.

 

Good luck, girl!

No, I loveee my curly hair, so I would'nt want to permanently straighten it, & I don't wanna use too many products in my hair. I've tried a few, and all they do is weigh it down even more. But thank you!!

loll it's not like mini-curls. My hair is pretty long, about 3 inches above my waistline, so it's more like long waves

 

why not go for the eliza dushku hair. you wouldn't have to straighten it then. plus it'd surprise everyone who's only ever seen you with straight hair. and as an added bonus curly hair is soooo hot. but make sure you go for the old one cos her new hair makes her look kinda facey (lots of face)

curly hair is so in at the moment, just look at celebritys

My hair is curly during the week, but for the weekends I straighten it to get the more "classy" look

 

Curly is casual/sexy, but sometimes straight looks more elegant

i apologise in advance for this post

have you tried those ghd hair straighteners. apparently they're the best on the market. or is it only shampoo your looking for?

I use a wet to dry ceramic iron on my curly hair so that I don't have to blow dry or dry it first (I towel dry it). that helps with volume. You might want to try using the iron - or a curling iron - to curl just the ends under which might add volume.

I have naturally curly hair and I like my curls. I stay away from blow dryers and let it naturally dry. Its soft and healthy and has bounce. I use curl specific shampoos and conditioners (a really good brand is biolage). I put mousse, gel and creme in it afterwards and that does the trick for me, personally. If you have curly hair, its already dry so why blow dry? Thats for girls with straight hair.

 

I'm complimented on my hair all the time and I don't go through half the trouble that most girls go through. I coudln't even understand half of these posts.

I want volume when I straighten it, not when it's curly. Curly it has a lot of volume, no problem; but when I straighten it, it's flat. I mean "blow dry" as in "straighten", not literally drying my hair.

I don't really see the problem. Emmmm, why don't you just wear it curly?

 

Curls have volume, natural is better for your hair, and... i personally prefer curls.

 

(And ironing is your hair's greatest enemy, just in case you didn't know it. The normal state of ironed hair is not having volume, nor shine, nor nothing. Grrrr.)
