Op here. I've had peter pan short hair since middle school and now I'm in the process of growing it out. My hair is really thick and curly and it reaches just above my shoulders at the moment.

Put mousse in your hair when it's damp and let it air dry or dry with a diffuser. I like herbal essences mousses since they smell nice and have good hold without residue.

Does the no poo baking soda/apple cider vinegar thing actually work? I just can't see how swapping out shampoo for vinegar and only washing your hair once a week is a good idea; it sounds like the hair version of a fad diet to me.

>> No.8902382

Your hair feels gross for weeks but eventually it stops overproducing oil because you aren't stripping it with shampoo. I tried it once but only got to the "it's only half as greasy as it was when I first gave up shampoo" point before giving up because I hated it.
If you want good shampoo that won't irritate your scalp or strip your hair just buy shampoo from the african section. They don't fuck around.

>> No.8902469

I never did the baking soda bit because that actually strips my scalp too much as well and makes it feel raw (the pH of that stuff is like 9, no need to upset my normal scalp pH and scrub it on top of that...yeah, that wasn't fun) but have been successful just with vinegar and scalp scrubbing with plain water before. The reason I don't bother with it now is laziness - I do cardio four days a week and on no poo I would have to rinse and scrub my scalp thoroughly with water on the non vinegar days to avoid gross oiliness. Now I do CWC twice a week with sulfate free, pH balanced shampoo and cone-free conditioner. I can just quickly rinse my scalp in between times instead. I didn't actually have much of a problem with dry ends/oily roots prior to trying no poo and was only washing my hair twice a week anyway, I just thought it might help it grow longer.

I moved from a place with very soft water to a larger city with hard water around six months ago. I still use shampoo and conditioner (the L'Oreal Eversleek line, it's sulphate and silicone free) and before I leave the shower I do an ACV rinse (watering it down to about 10-15%). It's working very well so far, when I first moved here my hair got dirty very quickly and it was less shiny and dry to the touch, but has since improved and back to its usual behavior.

I used to have bangs when I was a kid and hated them, but now that I'm into lolita they started tempting me again. After thinking about it for a while, and remembering how annoying the uptake for them is, I decided to just buy some fake bangs.
My hair colour wasn't simple to match, but I think I found something close enough. They were pretty cheap but turned out to be good quality stuff. I bought a few so I can style them differently so I'd love some inspiration images as well!

If your hair is wavy (mine is too) you will need to straighten them every morning. Short hair curls more. Which kind of sucks. But even if you cut bangs and don't like them, you can just grow them out as long side bangs, a lot of people have those.
In theory, there should be some sort of bangs that are flattering for your face. Your face shape plays a big part.

>>8903342
Wide chin and cheekbones? Sounds more like square. Could you maybe post a pic? And is yoir face longer or shorter?
If your forehead is narrow or small, I would definitely go for thick bangs, for obvious reasons. If it's more square-like, thinner bangs without side pieces is probably better.
Pic related is a good example of the latter. On people with longer faces, this length would look awkward or edgy. But since her face is shorter, shorter bangs help elongate her face. Her forehead is obviously pretty wide, but starting the tuft of bangs in the middle of the hairline helps her look more rounded.
Cosplay wigs may not always be the most flattering, because the bangs are very thick usually. If you haven't cut them properly, they might be too long as well.

African section? Could you elaborate? I'm quite naive (I'm a man, btw.) to the whole subject...

I don't use any conditioners or special shampoos, I take a high dose of Vitamin D almost daily, I wash my scalp in medium-hot water around 2 times in a week... That's about it, I guess?

You have a short forehead, but also a short face. If you do bangs, they need to be eyebrow level, start high on your crown, medium thick, and potentially pushed to the side a bit. Or a thinner section of jaw-length "bangs" that you can push to the side to cover some of your forehead

My grandmother is a hairdresser and does it for me, the only bit I'd say is complicated is getting it right to your roots and the mess it makes. This is the process we go through (Using powdered henna from spice stores.)
>Mix the henna with hot water until it's a good consistency
>Make a kind of bain marie with a bowl of hot water to keep the henne mix runny enough to apply
>Start spreading the henne on your hair from the roots
>Make sure you part your hair with a comb so you get to all the different layers
>Once your roots are fully covered start covering the rest of your hair in the henna mix
>If you have long hair you can even dump the ends of it in what remains in the bowl and mix around
>Cover your hair so the henna won't get everywhere and wait for a few hours

My hair is currently (dyed) black with light pink highlights. Every time I redo my roots black, rinsing it out causes it to stain the highlights and they need to be found (tricky because they're quite thin) and bleached again.

Will slapping some Vaseline over the highlights beforehand help with this?

Try washing your roots when they get dirty, trust me. As you generally would, depending on your ways, you can use dry shampoo, no poo, or just oil.
Do not keep them in for more than 8 weeks, you can probably do 2 months, MAX.

Keep your hair mosturised, I cannot stress this enough, if you don't, you'll start seeing your hair fall out (especially from the twists)

I'm using bicarb soda with my routine atm but only once a week (unless your hair gets dirty) otherwise its just lots of brushing (to distribute oils) and warm water 'washing' and making sure you physically wash your hair (you can even -gently- comb it out when wet, but avoid brushing or it'll break)
If you're only just starting no poo, start going a day or two without shampoo first and ease into it, when you introduce the bicarb make sure its diluted (I usually do 1:8 or less) and only use it when your hair is getting oily, it will saponify with the oils in your hair and you should actually get a little bit of lather, if it doesn't lather you are either using too much or your hair isn't oily enough, this is where the problems with ph and drying your hair out tend to happen (been there, done that, it's not fun)
Also please note that this is purely anecdotal/ what's worked for me so feel free to experiment a bit. The longhaircommunity forums have quite a lot of info but they're also a little obsessed and spend hours just on haircare.

Has anyone had luck regrowing/ growing more hair? About a year ago I tried the birth control shot and half my hair fell out. While the bald patches have filled in, my hair strands are very thin now and if I pull my hair back my entire pony tail is only a bit more than an inch wide. I'm really unhappy with my thin hair and I don't know what to do any more...

So I have really flat hair. It's a bit thin too, so unless I style it, it looks super dull and boring
Sometimes I curl it, and when I do, I absolutely love how it looks, but it takes sooo long, like an hour.
It lasts until I shower the next time, but I at least need to do it like two times a week and it's really a pain in the ass
Any other methods to add volume/texture/anything to your hair?
Oh and I should mention, my hair is really short, like 5 cm above shoulders (pretty much pic related with less poof)

The key is to pick an under layer of hair right behind the ear and create an open curtain using the upper layers of hair. Also use a small section of hair and fluff it up once all the hair is in a good spot.
It goes without saying but when you pin the ends tuck the non-braided portion under the other braid.

Something which might help is argan oil. You can shell out for 100%, but the one I have is about 50/50 argan and linseed oil.

I can't really brush my hair when it's dry without ruining the curly texture, but brushing it when it's wet is obviously super damaging - So I run like 10 pumps of oil through it with my fingers after every wash and just leave it. Super softening, super detangling, no breakage so far.

Low porosity is the one that stays afloat on water, right? If so, it is. Got a tub of shea butter leave-in conditioner recently, would that do or is it best to go look for the pure stuff? I've only used the conditioner once, yesterday, so can't really say if it'll do.

It wont last as long imo, I had a friend henna my hair and omg it was a huge smelly muddy mess.. and I have waist length hair.
It went from a dark blonde/lightbrown to a nice auburn, but I want to say it only lasted about a month or two with my routine.. as much as I liked the color the process was enough that I never did it again..

I've been no poo for 2+ years, I started with ACV/BS rinse.

Before getting into the shower I would premaking my rinse mixes..
>>First mix 1 tablespoon Baking Soda to one 32oz cup (I use one of the giant plastic slurpee cups) of hot water
>>In a seperate 32oz cup, mix 1 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar and fill it up with cold water.
>>Quickly brush out my hair and detangle it..
>>Once in the shower I rinse and start pouring the mixes
>>First the BS mix slowly starting from the top of my head, down the back, making sure I get my oily spots and massage into scalp..
>>I avoid my ends since I want to avoid drying them out further..
>>Then is the ACV mix (which neutralizes the BS)
>>Quick pour from the top of my head, but focus more on ends with the ACV, usually dunking my ends in the cup.
>>Then a final rinse with cool water in the shower..

I usually do this twice a week, with the other days just a quick rinse since I pull my hair up at night to sleep and I get sweaty sometimes..

I kept at this for about 6months before descovering shampoo bars.. I personally use a brand called Chagrin Valley Soap and Salve, and I just replaced the BS/ACV with the soap straight up and never looked back. I love this brand, and although I've never used lush, I'm assuming it would be the equivalent..

If I keep my hair pulled up I usually can go a week with out shampooing and my hair still smells and feels nice, and with a quick rinse I can put it back down again..

It isn't possible to reverse anything but visible damage with products, is it? I've been applying oils like hell to my hair which my hairdressers fried (at $200 per treatment) by trying to bleach blue out of my ends. Not even the salon owner told me that it probably wouldn't be possible until after I complained?? So I've dyed over them but it's temporary, because their terrible job has left my ends damaged. Lately, though, it's been sitting straight.

Is this just the image of product deposit? Honestly, I want to get it cut to avoid huge split lengths if that's the case, but if I can avoid it I want to grow it out about an inch longer before cutting so it doesn't sit at my shoulders.

I don't know if the hair thickening works. I don't want to destroy your hope, but I don't think you can actually make your hair thicker, no matter what you do. Just healthier.

Here are some tips to grow it out:
>use a gentle brush, for example the tangle teaser. I love mine, and you can grab one for sale on Amazon quite often
>don't wash your hair everyday! Try to wash it no more than 2-3 times a week
>use conditioner every time!
>coconut oil is your new best friend
>braid your hair overnight, don't wear tight ponytails, try not to wear your hair opent too much; learn some simple braids and updos
>get your split ends cut regularly
>DON'T use any heat like irons or blowdryers. Ever.

Personaly, I just use cheap drugstore shampoo and conditioner. It does the job; I don't really believe in fancy saloon stuff unless you need it for s.t. specific, like taking care of belached hair. Make sure they don't include silicones! Otherwise, you can always use coconut oil or oilve oil for treatments (have I also mentioned coconut oil is your new best friend?).
As said I personally don't use fancy products. There's only so much a shampoo can do, and I try to use natural stuff like aforementioned oils.

These are just general tips without knowing your hair type. I hope it helps, for more specific stuff you'd need to give more details.
I don't have thin hair so I can't help much on that, but I assume a proper hair cut and styling can help giving it more volume.

Wtf, my hair is a 3A as well and I can do bangs perfectly. Of course I have to flat iron them after the shower, but if your hair is well hydrated they won't spring towards anyone else's eyes. Just cut them a bit longer than usual so you can curl them inwards, it looks more natural than the super sleek ones.

You need a real toner. The purple shampoo wont get it to what you are looking for. Go to a local sally's and tell them you want a neutral/ash toner, someone should be able to help you. If you have any friends with a licence to purchase salon quality get goldwell 8na and mix with 1/4 ng to get a nice color. leave it on your hair for about 20min. Then keep your follow up with the purple shampoo for upkeep.

Castor oil will just get the appearance of hair density sadly. What I would suggest if your hair is colored to stay away from anything with sulfate/parabens. This will strip hair color and weaken hair.
It's a 10 is a great product for hair health, shine, and strength. For a weekly treatment I recommend Kerastase. If you have the money to spend on it it is literally the best thing ever.

This is >>8952258 again, I guess you're out of luck if you wash your hair every day, but I haven't felt the need to style them more than once in between washes (I only wash my hair once a week). I've also found that using a round brush while blow drying can keep them in check for a day or two, but it could work for you if you wash your hair more often and don't need them to be so long lasting (and if you use a hair dryer, which I don't either).

They were specifically asking about the hair in OP - none of that is achieved without heat and product, hence why I recommended TBD as the LHC tends to be all about hair protection and heat free styling, which is fine for growing your hair long but doesn't really tell you how to replicate the OP hairstyles particularly with what sounds like typical Asian hair (which tends to pull out of curls and sit quite flat without heat or product). The TBD bloggers' hair is pretty fried from the amount of styling they do but it's not like blow drying it a couple times a week would make your hair look like that, they legit curl or straighten and blow dry their hair daily as well as using a ton of strong chemicals.

>>8952453
Straight hair with bangs is fine for lolita as long as it is all in place rather than has lots of flyaways. The thing to be aware is that anything larger than a small bow may overwhelm your head if you don't have a lot of volume at the crown so it may be worth giving your hair a little lift on the top of your head, either by styling it with hairspray or blowdrying it - it's quite a subtle effect but makes a big difference in terms of your headwear not overpowering you.

So my hair goes from being dry to oily almost all time. I dont really know how to take care of it - if I wash it too often it becomes dry, and sometimes it has like "oil" that leaves white trace on combs.

The last time I did one of the high twin-tail lolita styles with my real hair I just did pull-through ponies. I'm going to suggest you do an upside down braid though. It'll get all of your hair to the top of your head at least, and then you can work out the curls with whatever hair is left.

Do you gulls think cutting is the only solution for damaged hair?

My hair is around 85cm and the tips are somewhat damaged (a bit dry, split ends here and there) and I am willing to cut arround 10cm, but I'll do it only if there is no other solution.
It's worth noting my hair has been bleached once before but I don't use any dye on it anymore

Any tips? Been doing treatment once a week, argan oil everyday, is there something else I could do?

>> No.8959848

>>8959845
>tl;dr There is zero way of reversing damage on hair because it's already dead silica. The best thing you can do is remove damage and hide damage.

I'd just trim the very edges (around 2cm) and let it keep growing, trimming every couple of months. That way you'll still at least maintain the length. Eventually you'll have removed all of the damage and can let it grow without bothering.

Argan is the best thing for making your hair LOOK and FEEL good. That shit is amazing.
People say "Oh no, never ever use products with silicone in it! It just hides the damage instead of fixing it!" as though it could be nursed back to heath in the first place. It's stupid. Silicone products are fantastic for the appearance of your hair by coating the follicles and making them smooth.

I'm kind of lazy and I was thinking about cutting my hair short. I've got 20 inches in length, is it worth cutting off? It gets really greasy with in a day now and it gets tangled unless i have it up. Which i hate having it up because why have long hair if it's up all the time. Also i feel like i can never wash the conditioner out of my hair all the way, so even if i just washed it it willl look like its greasy.

If your hair is stick straight, go for it. If it has any wavy or textured, you WILL hate it. Shorter hair curls more. Trust me, I did this last year. It doesn't end up like a cute wavy bob, it will be a triangle and you will have to heat style it every day.
But yeah if it's straight, it's totally cute, go for it.

>> No.8965689

>>8965599
No, but it might be worth looking into alternative hair care strategies. Even dead straight hair will need daily styling to look like that at that length (it will want to flip in/flip out/possibly stick up if you sleep on it funny) so that sort of hairstyle is bad if you are lazy. You're probably best with hair about to your armpit length so it's long enough to pull itself into somewhat of a structure but not so long that it's tangling, or look into layered/thinned out styles if it's the sheer amount that tangles.

My hair has a very slight wavy to it probably because of how long it is. I looked at some old pictures from when i was 14, back then it curled but not in a triangular way who knows what it does now

I'd go longer, if your hair has a wave to it then it may well curl up to that length once you cut it - in the before picture it looks like her hair is about armpit length anyway. Also bangs may not be your friend, I have to heat style mine even though I have typical straight Asian hair, because they stick up weirdly.

I currently have bangs, they are naturally straight.

>>8965738
Yeah, but the extra length weighs your hair down a little, and conditioner can weigh it down even more, and using it that close to the root is redundant anyway since you're producing oil to protect that part of the hair already. The two could be part of your troubles. You should try clarifying shampoo, too. It might help clear away any buildup of product in your hair.

The oil/wash balance is a problem I'm currently trying to deal with for myself with moderate success. My hair is 30" and it's fucking everywhere. I keep it up most of the time, but I agree it's not the cutest.

Not really. My sister has wavy hair and she loves her short cut. It gives her texture without it looking like a hot mess and even so, that look is in style right now. Hair grows back. I say just try it and if you don't like it, let it start to grow again.

Okay, so I'm considering to dye my hair pink, like a really light cotton candy pink. But I'm afraid it won't go with my skin, and also, I've never dyed my hair before, I've been a boring brunette my while life and I really want to change that. Anyone who has dyed their hair this color can share the experience?
Also, how would it go with j fashion?

>> No.8966253

>>8966188
Basically you've got to read everything you can about treating damaged hair. Because you've gotta bleach your hair to light blonde to be able to get cotton candy. Also you might really want to *keep* it that color because depending of the pink dye you'll probably have to bleach again if you want to dye it another color.
Jfash wise it's perfect if you wear sweet/fairy kei/other pastel styles. If you still wanna wear classic or gothic prepare to buy a wig.

>> No.8966336

>>8966188
Forget how it'll go with j-fashion, enjoy up keeping that shit. Have you read anything about dying hair before? To get it light pink, you'd basically need white hair, which is very hard to achieve. If your hair is even a little yellow, it'll be orange. You would need to bleach at a salon multiple times, then keep up the pink color yourself. Light colors will wash out within just a few washes. You need to kwep your hair toned because the toner will wash out as well. Then go back to the salon every month and a half or so for your roots. Bleaching at home would be terrible because it always ends up very uneven that way, which is more noticeable when you add colors because the more damaged and porous parts will end up brighter than the darker healthier parts. It's expensive and your hair could all break off either way. I'm not telling you not to do it, but don't do it.
Why not just get a couple of big highlights and dye them pink? Then you don't have to worry about them growing out or looking patchy. Or you could do a Rinrindoll thing. You can still have fun hair without potentially fucking it all up.

You're gonna have to style it a lot and trim it often, don't be fooled by how easy it looks.
I've had short hair all my life and it's now at mid back length for the first time since I was a toddler. Take it from me, long hair is ten times easier to style.

anon I've dyed my hair ever shade of the rainbow since I was a wee one. Yes, you have to be careful of damage, but that's really only true if you use bleach A LOT. it will be harder to get and maintain a lighter pink, but I kept a solid bubblegum for a long time. It's about using good product, which means going salon unless you've got any friends in beauty school and you can shop at places like Cosmo Prof or something or the sort. Look for salons that use Olaplex, or Pravana Vivids line is amazing and the color holds like a mofo.

If you're serious about your hair, talk to a salon, and make sure you buy some good shampoo as well to keep your hair lively and fresh looking.

Suggestions for convincing clip-in fringes or extension pieces? I've tried a couple of brands (Taobao off-brands, Prisila and Cyperous) without much luck. They're always glaringly obviously fake due to the fibre types being a heavier texture than my natural hair.

My hair is pretty thin and fine, but I also have a fivehead, and look stupid without a fringe. Being so thin, I can't have a fringe cut into my natural hair without devoting most of my hair to it. I mostly stick to wigs, but it'd be nice to have an alternative in summer when it's hot, but I'm at a loss for convincing clip-ins.

Hi, I guess this is the right place to ask. I recently just got off a round of Accutane, and it wrecked my hair. I shed so much while I was on it and it completely dried it out, but is slowly going back to how it used to be (gets oily easily). I also recently started birth control, and ever since I did my hair's gotten kind of blah, I just feel like my body has gone through so much lately that it doesn't know what to do.
Do you think getting a good hair cut would help? I had to get about 4 inches cut off not that long ago because of split ends, and so the stylist could go in and just help with all the shedding. Like, I shed so bad I broke my vaccuum, it was just hair everywhere. But maybe just hacking off a bit more would help?

Or is there some sort of vitamin besides biotin or a supplement I could take to help? Or food I should be eating? Sorry if this is confusing, I feel like my hair just can't keep up with my body at the moment.

If your hair is really straight, it sounds like it might be dry. Do you use heat tools like a curling iron or a blow dryer? If you do, you should try letting your hair air dry, and avoid curling it unless it's for a special occasion. This is number one. After that, you can try treating your hair with coconut oil, maybe cut it with conditioner at about an oil:conditioner ratio of 1:5, it really can be a pain in the ass to wash out. If you're having a lot of tangling issues you might buy the slippery-est conditioner you can find with a silicone (dimethicone or any other -ones) high on the list of ingredients (ie. a cheap conditioner).

I hope this helps you!

For those who use clip in bangs, how did you pull off color matching?

I have always had really thin hair so real bangs would be too much of a sacrifice. But my hair also gets lighter near the bottom. Either the shaft/ends of my hair won't match or my roots weren't.

My local Sally's didn't have any in store and we don't have an Ulta so I don't think there's anywhere I can go to physically look either.

Any advice for severe dandruff? For as long as I can remember my scalp has been a flaky mess. I don't use any products on my hair, other than shampoo and conditioner. I've never dyed my hair, and have always been told by hairdressers that my hair is in good condition. I don't wash my hair excessively either. My hair is waist length, and very thin.

I have thin hair and when I have it long I always braid it to avoid tangles (and minimise the brushing needed). There are lots of cute braided styles, but I am lazy and usually just had a single French braid down my back. I also never use heat styling. I cut it to just above my shoulders last autumn, so I could donate to little princess trust, and oh my it is so much harder to care for when it's too short to braid! Luckily it's just about long enough again now!

Depends on how difficult the cut style is in the drawing. Hair-stylists have many books with different photographed cut-styles, so a drawing might not be too far off. It all really depends on how well the drawing is made, and if the cut is doable.
