if you find a good stylist

and go short enough, you won't need to worry about straightening, I don't think. I was able to simple use styling products to make my pixie behave.


I love piecy pixies and still stare hard,...

I've been disappointed when

a semi permanent made my hair feel dry and definitely straighter. I applied it to fresh growth hair with a small amount of previously dyed ends. I went darker than my natural colour.


I've...

I cringed

I cringed terribly when I read about opening the scissors and sliding them down the hair - isn't that essentially like using a razor?

I had grown my hair out for a year plus, it was awesome,...

Product buildup...I think

I'm naughty on the fingertip scrubbing thing. I just can't figure out how to do it, maybe my nails are too long?? I've tried a scalp brush, but it tends to wander off (kids play with it), never...

I've done a few rounds of low dose

I did one round of regular/high dose, about 20 years ago, and it stopped the cystic acne in its track. Since then, I've started and usually stopped because of unrelated health issues, a couple of...

I took a variety of photos today

Including some with a piece of hair pulled straight - can't believe that it has actually grown (well, it has been almost a year since my last ultra short pixie cut). My hair feels super short, and I...

I think that I've accepted my hair since birth

I think that I accepted my fuzzy hair since birth bec it didn't start out super curly - it would go through periods of less curl, esp in the winter (and under hats). I had pretty crazy, fuzzy hair...

Ooops! Read labels!

On another thread, a poster pointed out that the SHAMPOO of Tresemme Naturals contains SULPHATES (which could explain why I didn't buy it - must have read the label and left the shampoo on the...

Oh! Thanks for the heads up

The Tresemme Naturals shampoos do contain sulfates.[/QUOTE]

I must have read the label at the time, perhaps that's why I have the silicone free conditioner only!

I think that we might be hair twins

or at least we were about 20 years ago (for me, not you).

I would often look red in photos (made no sense), would end up brassy (yellow head), would find that my hair would suck up colour and...
