I have lived most of my life with short (buzzcut) hair. As I approach my inevitable mid-life crisis, I thought it would be fun to have longer hair. It has been about 14 months and I now realize (after reading here) that I have made several mistakes, including haircuts, shampoo every day, aggressive towel drying, and unhealthy products.
I am not fond of the wet hair look, but I also don’t like how my hair can frizz. My guess is that Heath Ledger has similar hair – and I have seen good pictures of him with short and longer hair.
I have a couple of questions:
1) What is my hair type (I was thinking wavy 2b)?
2) What style do you think would look best (shorter or shoulder length)?
3) Is CO washing a good start to figure out how to care for my hair?
Thanks for reading and any feedback – I do not know anybody that can help me (the wife has straight hair, and after reading here *I* have given her tips on how to change her hair care).
In addition I think you may want to look into a styling paste or serum to lock in the moisture and protect your hair from the elements a bit. To help your curls stay put you could also try a gel or mousse (maybe something like Garnier Fructis Volumizing gel?). HTH!
