I need hair help

I cannot stand this part of growing your hair out. Whenever I get my hair cut a little too short for comfort, I start babying my hair. As in, not putting any heat on it at all — no blow dryers, no straighteners. Nada. Which ends up with me putting my hair back wet or french braiding the bang-area LC style.

On me though? It can look cute sometimes. But for the majority I despise my hair pulled back.  I’m also trying to not wash my hair every single day, either so it can grow faster, and healthier. Maybe I’ll just never cut my hair again. Maybe that’s how it grew…

I got my hair cut on June 1, and since then I’ve babied it and I’m getting quite sick of this babying process. But at the same time I don’t want there to be any split ends next time I get a trim. I know the tips and tricks everyone is going to give me: Dry shampoo, teasing the hair (which I am a total gimp at), and again not putting any heat on it and not washing it often.

I just want my long hair back. RAWH! Look how long that was. I don’t even remember how I got it that long. Maybe it was before I knew what a hair straightenr was, and my hair was healthy from wearing it UP all the time, lol.

What do you do, to baby your hair? Do you deep condition it? What do you use? I need hair help.

  1. I wash my hair 2-3 times a week, but more important I take essential fatty acids, omega 3, flax, seems to give me strong hair and I havent had split ends in years(and I used to get lots!).

  2. I have curly hair, it’s fine but I have a lot of it, if I don’t wash my hair everyday it looks like pewpy. Once a week I use a deep conditioner and put a bag over my head (literally) and put the hot air from the blow dryer on it. The conditioner I use is awesome, and is a great price. It’s called Cynos deep recovery mask. It is honestly the best conditioner I’ve ever used. Since you have fine hair, you could always just treat your ends.

    Nancy says: Where do you buy the Cynos deep recovery mask? I’d like to try it out maybe!

  3. With me I always end up with the ‘grass is greener’ mentatlity. When I have a short hair, I get serious long-hair envy, and its the opposite when I have long hair! I’m trying to find a happy medium, but its tricky!

    Nancy says: I really dislike a certain length of hair on me. Any shorter than shoulder length and I cannot stand the way it looks. I love my long hair lol :( Come back! lol

  4. Uhg, I hear you. I’ve started the whole not washing my hair every day thing and so far so good (I have really fine, flat hair and I like the extra volume it gives me). My vice is the blow dryer and straightener… I don’t know if I can give them up :(

    Nancy says: I know, and I’m now trying to not use BOTH on the same day, but my hair looks so much better when I use both :(
