my hair!

Question Posted Saturday July 22 2006, 1:04 pm

My hair is naturally frizzy and wavy.

Everymorning during the school year i straighten it for the most part

But my hair never looks the best until that night when it gets a little greesier (prob. because i dye it straighten it and sometimes blow dry it) but if i wash it every other day it looks really bad (like super greesy) the next day if i don't wash it

My problem is i am going to go running everymorning come home shower blowdry it and the whole shabang but my problem is it always looks dry and frizz's easily if it has been washed in the past 12 hours or so. I know its not the straighter but more of just my hair is dry but i know i have to shower after i run because I am going to be sweaty

My question is how can i wash my hair and get all the sweat out but keep it from being as dry looking (and it frizzes right away once i step outside if ti was freshly washed because its humid where i live most of the time). I was thinking maybe just rinsing it with water would work and acually shampoo it before bed but i wasn't sure

any ideas?

any products to help? I am not going to stop straightening or change straightener so don't suggest that (unless you use the most amazing straighter ever for under $50 because I use a helen of troy and i love it. but don't make your choice of straightener your adivce alone)

My school is an open campus so i go outside for about 5 mins every 45 mins so i can't avoid the elements (i live in PA)

Sunsilk just came out witth this new line and there are different colors for the different problems you have .. you would probably be pink for dry. they have a bunch like poof, kinky, flat, etc.

i use it in blue for poofiness and it works really well.

get a cream too that you can use when you get out of the shower or before u go out in the humidity. sunsilk also has them to go along with the shampoos so im sure tthatd work

i straighten my hair too alot and id never stop either, but blowdrying isnt always necessesary and sometimes its good to just give ur hair a break and stick it in a bun.. especially if its rainy anyway.. and since you have to shower everyday sometimes maybe just use conditioner and no shampoo thats what my hairdresser told me to do to keep the color from fading

hope i helped :)

I use what is called a hot oil treatment. They are GREAT! you warm them in hot tap water, then put them on your hair right before you wash your hair in the shower. your hair takes what oil it needs, and the rest is washed away with shampoo. You use them once a week and they are very cheap at walmart, target, etc. hope i helped <3

How was i supposed to know you tried them? maybe you should have said what you tried in your question. Also, you have to use them for three weeks to really see a big difference.

try hair serum by frizz ease or Garnier Fructese... do not just wash ur hair with water without soap... just wash it using a mositerizing shampoo like thermasilk, or sleek look by matrix

Well i use Alberto VO5 Miracle Mist.
It protects your hair from heat damage.
Like from blowdrying and straighting your hair.
It costs like $4 a bottle, but it depends where you go. I go to CVS.

Hope I helped
