I want to pernamentley straighten my hair, but my mom won't let me. I am planning to pay for it. My mom still won't let me because, as she says, you will look like a wet muskrat, just like everyone else with stick straight hair.
But I am getting a haircut, and it will be shoulder length. My hair is EXTREMELY poofy, no matter what kind of shampoos or serums I use. When I straighten it with a straightener, which takes about an hour and a half (which I don't have time for) it gets really nice and silky, and the poof disapears.
I think I really need this: I only wear my hair down when I straighten my hair, which is about four times a year. Otherwise I wear it in a pony tail, which makes me feel like a tomboy.
How do I convince my mom to let me? I am 16 by the way.

(my hair is seriously like getting shorter every day because its breaking off and it smells soo burnt when it gets wet) if you dont already have somewhat straight hair it wont help you that much anyway because it will still be super poofy. so i wouldnt get it permanetly straightened it but you should def buy some hair protector spray (the herbal essences one is great and it smells amazinggg). also you could try scrunching it because it'll look cute and this summer if your gonna be swimming alot and you're not gonna want to straighten your hair every time you get out of the pool.

i would think twice about getting your hair straightened i did it once and i ABSOLUTLY regret it. My hair ended up breakinging so i had really really really short hair (like boys length hair) on the crown of my head and it was really noticeable and it stuck straight up. My hair ended up getting even more frizzy. [ StarryNightSkies's advice column | Ask StarryNightSkies A Question ]

orphans answered Saturday June 9 2007, 5:50 pm: Try to explain to her your dilemma with having to straighten it all the time. Tell her that you will pay for it and you will not hear any complaints about it. Get her to understand why you want to do it. If she says no again then tell her how much time it takes you to straighten it and how badly it can damage your hair if you continuously straighten it. Explain to her how you feel you would look so much better if you could wear your hair down.
