What is your biggest "issue"?
 
What is your biggest issue with your hair? Tangles? Frizz? Volume?
Spill the beans!
And if others have a solution to aforementioned problems, spill those too!

I'd say my biggest issue lately (even though I am LOVING MY HAIR this summer!) would be getting my hair to "lay" how I want it to, without messing with it too much while wet and causing it to frizz out everywhere. I've been recently literally not touching it while its wet, so I have these great ringlets, but they are in these awkward coils that aren't necessarily the most flattering.

Split ends/damage is my biggest issue. I have a lot (or I feel that I do) of damage from years of using SLS poos, hairspray & other BAD things & from getting highlights. I want to be able to look at my ends & not see even one split end. That wish is probably unrealistic. But it is my main goal to get my hair as healthy as it can possibly be. I don't want to cut off all the damage at once cause I really like my hair long.

i have two main ones that i can think of:

1 - front left section of my hair has a few curls that are much less curly than the rest, barely wavy.... always trying to make that part curl more. when it doesn't, i try to tuck it behind my ear, hiding it under other curlier hair

2 - frizz, though not TOO bad. mostly a little bit of canopy frizz that i've learned to accept, but i often get some separation frizz too that really bugs me. it's only really noticeable up close though, from a safe distance (like in the mirror) it pretty much looks fine.

I get some canopy frizz too! That's my chief complaint but I think I've gotten to a point where I accept it more than I used to. As long as my waves/curls stay pretty defined then I don't mind it so much (as long as it's not too much!) :)

Tangles are the big one, and frizz. Though I notice my frizz is better if I don't diffuse and if I don't plop for too long.

Dryness. It takes a lot of rich conditioner to keep my ends from drying out to the point where they split like crazy and break off. Thank gawd for Too Shea!

Frizz!-on 2nd day hair. My hair usually looks ok when its' washed & done & not too bad on 2nd day if wetted well. But otherwise just frizz! & if Ive worn my hair in a pony & take it out it looks straight but still frizzy, how is that possible?!
Although for the past 2 or 3 days I have put some Almond oil on the ends & I think this may be helping, hope it wont build up though.

Frizz or weighed down roots--since now my hair is longer. :?

Dealing with frizz because of intense humidity here in TX is my biggest problem. I lived in AZ before and it's dry there so my hair had almost no frizz then! :cry: So now if I am going to be outside most of the day I have learned to leave the crunch from my gel in my hair so that my hair doesn't turn into a puff ball.

lushaholic 06-16-2005 12:42 PM

Munequita, your hair is beautiful! :)

superrach3 06-16-2005 01:46 PM

major separation frizz! i just can't figure out what i'm doing wrong. i use a lot of conditioner, gently scrunch in my products, and don't touch it while it dries. life is so cruel....

p.s. munequita, i turned bright green after i saw your hair. it's so beautiful!

Muñequita 06-16-2005 05:30 PM

Thank you lush! :blush:blush.gif You have beautiful hair and what color! I love your curls! All you here have beautiful hair too! Sky, Pixie, kimmy and rain. I'm not worthy! I'm not worthy! I bet you other ladies without pics have great hair too! (hint, hint: we want to see pictures!)

Since some people voted on my picture post that I'm a 3a & others voted I'm a 3b, who knows where I should post, but what the heck, right?

So, what, we can only pick one issue we have with our hair?! :shock: :lol:

I need volume that lasts from roots down & I'm tired of the tangles & dryness!

Biggest issue is the kind of ratty, stringy, uncurly way the back bottom of my hair looks. It's not unhealthy or split but it looks like some horrid mutant layer under my curls.

When Francis (at Devachan) cut my hair the first time, he was surprised at how non conformist that part was. This last haircut with Anna, she and Lorraine disagreed strongly about cutting those stringers off completely.

Don't want to lose length or I would have it cut up to a thicker layer.

That is actually exactly what mine does too! :x Yet I don't want to lose that length by cutting those strands shorter either. :? So who was all for cutting it off, Anna or Lorraine?

itsjustmeghan 06-16-2005 06:36 PM

mine has to be getting the curls to last all day long.
i don't have much frizz lately, and my hair is super healthy. i just think i use too much leave in conditioner, but it's so i don't get the dry spot in the back...
so i guess it's either curls that don't last all day long, or the dry spot...
can't seem to find a hapy medium!

The back underneath layer of my hair is almost straight. What I do is give it a hefty dose of Jessicurl Gelebration spray. It doesn't get as curly as the rest of my hair, but it does improve the curl enough that it doesn't look like a swatch of someone else's hair pinned in!

I would say my biggest problem is separation frizz, especially in the bottom third. I probably should just cut a few inches off, but I like it below shoulder length because it's curlier.

If we were allowed to post a second problem, I would say flat roots!

I love the color of your hair! Always wanted dark, shiny, curls.

My biggest issue is my hair does not last the day no matter what I do. I have tried leaving in the condish and rinsing it all out. If I don't leave some in, I have a ton of frizz. By the end of the day,every day, I have Big hair. And forget about ever having second day hair.

Love this new 3a forum :D

My biggest issue is separation frizz, especially in the front of my hair. The front few curls on each side of my face seem to kind of unravel during the day. Sometimes I can wet them and sort of coax them together, but that doesn't always work. I think it's because that layer is too short (chin length) to curl properly, so I'm working on growing them out.

I also have some weird straightness on my ends that I can't figure out. The last 1/2 inch of my hair sometimes turns out stick straight, which is really odd. I know it's not caused by damage, because it happens regardless of whether or not I've had a recent trim. I can usually fix it by re-wetting the ends and kind of scrunching them.
