I've come to the conclusion that every hair product, every no-poo thing, regular cuts, henna, more protein, whatever, don't help my hair. My hair does what it wants to do. Right now it is still getting thick and long and I'm just using a cheapish natural shampoo infrequently. My hair was thin and brittle when I was trying other methods, and I can't believe how thick it's getting now.

i had just resigned myself to growing my hair out from that stacked bob that takes years to grow out.
and what happens?
my hair salon, that up and disappeared, has just been spotted again. i am torn now- go get my hair cut back into the bob, which admittedly really suited me, or just finish growing it out? i haven't cut it since december and it's actually okay.

the kid says there is a 75% chance that when i walk in the door the people will say "oh noooooo! we moved to get away from you!!" (this was the place where I fainted in the chair one time, although i always left sick tips)

I have a hair appointment for Monday and I haven't decided yet if I want to keep growing it out (but get more layers put in) or go back to a curly bob. I like being able to pull my hair back when I go running or biking (a pro for keep growing it out) but I also liked how the bob looked. Decisions!

i just put my hair in 2 pigtails. whatever. would your bob be long enough to do 2 pigtails? (do you not want to associate yourself with having 2 pigtails?) sometimes it's juuuuust long enough to pull back in one, but the pigtails are more secure and get more hair off my neck.

My bob was right around my chin at the front and then quite a bit shorter in the back so I couldn't really do much with it. My hair is *just* long enough for one ponytail now, but before it got to that point I was doing the 2 pigtail thing!

thank dog, i too have just reached ponytail stage, but i did use the pigtail thing regularly. it makes my face look really, really long, but sometimes you have to just tie it up.

Does anyone have a good cruelty-free dupe/alternative to Pureology stuff? I just chopped my hair off (yay!) and they gave me some sample packets of Pureology shampoo/conditioner (the super smooth kind) at the salon. Normally I wouldn't buy it (because L'Oreal), but I was running low on shampoo so I figured I might as well use it up. And... my hair looks nicer than it's looked in years. So now I'm looking for something similar that won't give me icky conflicted morals. Any suggestions?

I'd recommend Neuma. I got a sample of their smoothing shampoo and it was awesome but a little too moisturizing for me so I purchased one of their other shampoo/conditioners and it is great.

Thank you, that does look promising! I'd normally go for the volumizing one since I have the flattest, thinnest hair ever. I never would've picked out the super smoothing one for myself, but I do like what it does to my hair.

I got my first bangs since the mid-nineties! And they are forking straight!! (I have a stupid natural cowlick that made this impossible in an era when nobody here had access to a straightening iron.) Success!

(Tried to post the selfie I took at the salon, but I'm having problems with my image hosting site. Apparently I can't link directly to a picture anymore. It only shows up as black. Boo.)

Thanks, teacup! I hope I can style it as well myself. I have very wavy hair & this stupid cowlick as well... so it takes a lot of straightening to stay like this.

Thanks, lilyyw! :))

This just in: after blow-drying it in shape and then taking the straightening iron to it, my hair looks just the way I want it! Yay. So stoked.

Phoenix, that style looks great on you.

Boober, your curls are seriously amazing.

I vote to let it grow, lobster! I have curly hair like you and I fall into a cycle of growing my hair, then getting lazy and wearing it back all the time, then I get frustrated and think "if it's always up, then I'll cut it shorter", then I get sick of my shorter hair and the cycle starts all over again.

This time, I decided I was going to grow it but not get lazy and wear it down most days. I found a stylist I like and now I take 5 extra mins in the morning to blow dry my hair with a diffuser and embrace the curl. If I find myself getting frustrated with how the curl is looking then I take it as a sign to head back to my stylist and freshen up the layers.

If you have a Costco membership or know someone who does their Kirkland brand shampoo in the purple bottle is supposedly pureology. I love that stuff. The conditioner too.

I finally made an appointment for a haircut for Thursday next week. I'm still having the internal debate on whether I just want her to trim and shape it, or if I want to lose a few inches. I'll probably go with a trim and see if that helps the curl issue, and if not, well, I'll just get more length off at my next cut in another 6-7 months.

Are bridesmaids supposed to get pedicures and hair and stuff?

Because my hair looks like shiitake but I am terrified by this weekend since my friend/the bride insisted I get a pedicure even though my dress covers my feet (and my feet are disgusting and need to be hid).

I could try to get it done tomorrow by this girl who used to work at my job but quit because we came, and now hates us, but that's my only option and I'm pretty sure she'll hack it all up and smear pork grease on it.
