lovely ladies please tell me what to do with my thick, frizzy hair!
I have always (since my teens and i'm now 37) had my hair cut in long layers with the hope of weighing it down so it doesn't frizz up so much. I am fairly happy with my appearance in other areas but my hair really lets me down and i often feel self conscious. It is very thick, coarse, wavy and frizzy and i don't know what to do with it. Just spent a fortune on argan hair products that make no difference!
My hair sounds a lot like yours - very thick and frizzy. I used to have a long layers style, too but got sick of only being happy with how it looked about 50% of the time.
I got it cut into an inverted bob (google it) and I absolutely love it! It's perfect for thick hair and I've luckily managed to find a fantastic hairdresser who cuts it exactly how I want it, the cut lasts for ages too ...only need to get it done every 3 months or so. I know about a million other women of my age have the same style, but I don't honestly care.
It's cut down hugely on blow drying time (three minutes, no joke) which in turn has improved the condition of my hair, even though I'm straightening it every other day. I'm using that new L'Oreal oil and I actually think it's lots better than argan/moroccan etc. Anyway, for the first time ever I feel like my hair is groomed and shiny...long hair was nice but rarely consistently nice, iykwim?
Try a Brazilian blow dry in a salon or one of the kits from amazon - I use the keratin kits They really smooth my hair and make it so much quicker to dry and style until I forget to use the salt free shampoo and wash it out
