Default Question about Flyaways/Dry Hair

It seems that when I don't shampoo or put conditioner or stay in conditioner in my hair, my hair becomes extremely frizzy and its dry. I then have all these random hairs poking out that I can just like pull out. But when I condition it or putt stay it, my curls form perfectly and I cannot pull out anything. What is the reasoning for this?




Thats my hair when its dry. If you see, you can notice those random hairs poking out. What could I do to make my hair more compact. Like I wouldnt have all these unformed curls. I think I do not have enough oil in my scalp? Also how could I make my hair look the best possible?


Thanks a lot. Oh Yeah I am a guy.

Whatever you're using could be drying out your hair.. Take a look around here. http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlta...wforum.php?f=7

I am using Kerastase Hair shampoo as a prewash and Revita shampoo as my regular shampoo. I was wondering if using Revita is bad? i am using it to prevent balding. i am not balding at all right now, but I have been using it for 4-5 months and onwards incase and a preventive method for balding.

I am unsure if this is bad for my hair, since its curly and dry?

Sorry, I know nothing about balding, but I know that curly hair needs it's moisture and two shampoos is more than enough. Shampoos can have harsh detergents that strip the hair and dry it out. Conditioner is key to keeping it healthy, especially after shampooing- twice. I suggest that you skip the extra shampoo if you want those flyaways to settle down.

So I should condition everyday? I only shampoo around 2-3 times per week. I havent been conditioning lately, just shampooing.

Are those hairs in my picture flyaways or frizz or what? The ones that are like seperated from my curls.

Ahh well there's the issue right there, conditioning everday is the key especially on shampoo day. Shampoo strips your hair of natural oils and you're not replenishing any of the lost moisture in your hair. Juicytube was right about the harsh detergents in shampoo, so you should def. skip the extra poo or the poo at all until your hair can recover from the shock of all the poo'ing.

So yes, condition everyday.

if you showed a picture of the sides, the front, or the back I might be able to see the problem better. usually the top doesnt show much except the part, although i understand that your hair is short (mine is too), the flyaways are really obvious from different angles

I conditioned today with Phytobaulm, I dont know if any of you have heard of it, but it was impossible to rinse out.

hmm you could put some stay in conditioner everyday? I dont know, you should get advice from the experienced posters here.

Those are flyaways I think, or frizz

I actually dont think you need to condition anymore, in fact to avoid build up...I wouldnt.
When your hair is drying make sure you dont touch it AT ALL, because this could be what is causing the fly aways

Wait, what? I shouldn't Condition? Why not?

So I just get out of the shower and just let my hair dry without rubbing it with a towel. Just air-dry? So those hairs poking out everywhere are frizz or flyaways?

I don't know why she said don't condition, because every curly should.

Rubbing your hair with a towel will roughen up the cuticle and promote frizz. Air drying would be the better option. I don't know if it's frizz, flyaways, or just hair. I think your hair is cute! Your hair will be in overall better condition if you start ..conditioning. =]

condition if your hair feels dry. If its not dry, I dont see why would need to condition it, at least not everyday.
Towel drying is find, just dont touch your hair after that.

Alright. I do not think my hair produces enough Sebum though, because unless I sweat or put stay in conditioner in my hair, my curls are not formed. They are frizzy and unformed and annoying.I also am able to pull random hairs out, and I shed However, when I put stay-in conditioner or sweat, my hair has curls that form perfectly. What can be done?

Sorry to ask so many questions, but I am just trying to figure out how to make my hair healthy and look good.

When you are using the towel your not scrubbing it around on your head are you? YOu could sort of blot the water out of your hair. Definately use conditioner everytime you wet your hair regardless if you use shampoo or not. If you have good curls with the leavin conditioner then keep using it. I use leave in also all the time and it helps with the frizz and fly aways.

If you're using a regular terry towel - that could give you frizzies. And don't, repeat - don't ever rub or scrub your head with the terry towel. If you can, get a microfiber towel (bed bath and beyond carry them) and gently blot the excess water out by scrunching with the towel.
I'm having issues right now with fly aways, dryness and frizz
What kind of climate do you live in? Any humidity? that can have alot to do with it too.
I would condish but also read the ingredients. some people will get extremely dry hair using anything with protein in it. And stay clear of some of the bad cones. Alot of homework to do

I live in the DC Area. Its like 90-95 degrees right now. So I should never rub it with a towel. Should i just pat it or let it just air dry once i get out?

Right - don't rub with towel. You can pat dry or better yet.... take your towel and just squeeze or scrunch water out.
