I feel your pain -- I am a 3a on top and pin-straight at the nape of the neck. It's always been like that. Before CG my stylists cut it shorter than the rest so it wouldn't stick out. Now that I...

The problem with 1950s hairstyling is that your hair went into pin curls whether it was straight or curly. I've had mine (3a) styled for such a thing and they had to flat iron it, then put it in big...

I primarily use SIF in the summer when it's very humid. I only use it on dry hair, the day I wash it. It is a godsend for second- and even sometimes third-day hair. But I never reapply. Just...

I like Nature's Gate heavy conditioners, also swear by Devacurl One Condition. V05 is too light for my hair but fine for "washing." Deva Angell has helped manage the pouf, too.

Sounds like your top layers are too short. Ugh. The only thing I can recommend - until you get a trim - is to leave extra conditioner in those too-short layers. Also I long ago switched to evening...

I swear by Cala Renee in Beverly, I tell her to leave my hair big and funky and she does an awesome job. You get a Devachan cut for half the price of the one in NYC, and no Fung Wah bus.

Sounds like you are doing great. I usually wait until the top layer is crunchy with gel and I can scrunch it gently. Also, though, remember that you are very early in the CG routine. My hair went...

I swear by Angell alone in the winter months, but once the humidity hits I have really come to love B'Leave-In before the Angell. I just rub it between my palms and run them down my hair, then...

Now that I think of it my coworker's sisters, who both have corkscrew curls, swear by the Carriage House in Cambridge. They do Ouidad cuts which are a mixed bag, but it seems to work better for...

I dunno, women with long hair seem to love Dana too. The complex match of hairdresser + client just failed me with him.

I like going to vintage stores and getting cheap silk or cotton scarves. I wash 'em with Woolite and get a super funky look. Also the headband thing (with scarves) works better for me if I don't...

I have extremely thick but dry hair, and I no-poo every two or three days (the third day it's usually clipped up). You can no-poo every day, as the gals at Devachan told me, but my hair takes so...

I have also gone to Cala Renee in Beverly, a couple of times, and won't go anywhere else now. I tried Dana at M Salon, due to his scads of good reviews here, but had a mediocre experience. Cala...

I went to Cala Renee outside of Boston and she is terrific. She did the Deva training and I'd recommend her anyone. No bus fare to NYC, half the cost and all the style!

accessories for very VERY thick hair?

My hair is now past my shoulders and I am ready to get a little fancy. This is the problem though: my hair breaks barrettes. Last time my hair was long - high school - it was just a matter of time...

I like the Nature's Gate Henna Conditioner too, it is gloppy but not heavy and rinses out well. The V05 Kiwi Lime made my dry hair even dryer, but for the record I had to stop using Devacurl No-Poo...

yes, great idea!

I'm a 2C and have had a hard time finding products via the message boards here - it seems most people have fine hair, even if they have tons of it. I'd love a place for other people who have hair...
