what to do with my hair...

Sooo... more hair problems!!! lol. my hair is crazy andi dont know what to do with it. for the most part, im a 3b. but when i straighten my hair, i can not get any waves in it or anything. its just pin straight! humidity does not even affect it!! yea yea, ur probably like wow thats awesome... but its just weird! i do flat iron my hair and that might b the problem but i cant stop!!! its the only way to get my hair str8! i have crazy dried weird hair. and its real thick. and i have WAY TOO MUCH of it. and a child my mom made two pigtails in them ALWAYS so my hair is naturally parted! no matter how much i try to push it back, it will fall split down the middle or a little off to the side. my hair is just really stiff and never looks hydrated. it can look shiny, but never like, fully hydrated like pics ive seen (ex. misfitcurls). i do leave ins everytime i wash my hair and use hydrating shampoo and this dominican conditioner that supposed to be full of good stuff. i'm just a big poof ball!!!

Products, someone, pleaseeeeeee. and please if u can relate or have similar hair trouble, please posts along with ur resolutions!

OMG, you have the most beautiful hair! You have that wonderful thick, coarse hair that is not affected by weather. You should feel lucky--try having limp, fine hair that frizzes at the slightest hint of humidity or won't hold a curl for more than 2 seconds. It just sounds like you need to learn to work with it.

As far as the parting problem, it just sounds like you need to retrain your hair to go the way you want it to, which may be challenging because your hair looks very heavy and wants to follow the path of least resistance. Can't you blow dry it AGAINST the part it wants to take and do this day after day until it gets the hint?

Good luck, though it's tough to muster a whole lotta sympathy for someone with my dream hair!

Good luck!
OK, I admit it.....I'm an alias! I wasn't born with the name Honeycurls!
Dood, get over it; there's no time limit on lurking.

I so busy runnin' allllllll over the place and ain't nobody chasin' me!
Wow, Our hair looks very similar and acts similar as well if it is true it's not affected by humidity. Mine's just not as thick as yours. Does your hair seem to get less curly the longer it gets or vice versa?

The products I use on my hair for moisture:

Qhemets Biologics (Olive and Honey Balm)
Giovanni Smooth as Silk (as a leave in)
Aloe Vera Gel
And an occasional Fenugreek treatment (every 2 weeks)

After doing my CG routine:
I put two dabs of olive and honey balm on my hair, focusing on the ends. Then I put to blots of Giovanni in, and a little bit of aloe vera gel. I scrunch it, and my hair becomes as soft and shiny as baby hair, but pretty well defined. Another thing that has helped me immensely is Henna/Fenugreek treatments. I've only been using it for 1 month and I have noticed a huge difference in everything.

I also stopped straightening my hair and I also use the CG method. Mine used to be frizzy and the curls undefined. After I stopped, my curls came right back to life. Now all I have to do is grow my shoulder-length hair out.

You're gorgeous by the way! How long is your hair now??

I dont brush or comb my hair. i comb it out when i wash it. when i str8en it, i dont comb or bursh or touch it cause it poofs it up even more. when its curly, i cant put a comb thru it even if i wanted to, and i dont touch it cause it poofs it out

i also dont really put it in pony tails unless its hot. and sometimes at night, when its str8, i'll wrap it so it doesnt look ugly in the morning...

i think im just gonna cut it all off and start over
My hair used to center part all the time until I re-trained it to part to the side. My hair is kind of too short to have to have it go straight back without a part without some kind clip at all times, but I'm sure yours could do it. It's best to finger comb it back when it's wet and you've put products in it already, that way it will kind of set into position. What I usually do is use a few bobby pins or claw clips on the top of my head to hold that front section of hair back while it dries. You might have to leave them in all day for the first little while (even after your hair dries) while your hair gets used to it, but eventually you can take them out after your hair dries and it should stay.

Awww.... don't give up. Maybe it's a product issue? I know it can be very frustrating. What if you change what products you use?
Sometimes things have to get worse before they get better... Try switching things up a bit and see what happens.
