I have crazzy frizzy hair. It's thick, wavy in parts but not everywhere, oily in parts but not everywhere, frizzy, gross.<br><br>
I am so at a loss as to what to do with it, that I just want to rip it all out. I can't figure out what products to use on it, they all seem to do nothing. I can't find a good haircut, they are all too much work with a 4 month old. I want wash and wear, but I want sexy wash and wear.<br><br>
Anyone have similair hair and product recommendations? Or ideas?

Sounds a bit like mine. I don't have answers, unfortunately.<br><br>
As long as we're asking hair questions, what do people do with all those little 1/2" long hairs that grow along the scalp line??

My hair is insane and the only thing that helps is a flat iron. Shampoo it all and only condition the ends. I never use conditioner by my scalp!<br><br>
I have mostly one length hair with about an inch of layers. I had it completely thinned out too!

I have a few suggestions for you...<br><br>
asian straightening- I love this.... its pretty much like a perm except its permed straight. Then your hair says perfect/non frizzy until it grows out again from the roots. Seriously after getting out of the shower you don't even have to brush your hair and it dries perfect.<br><br>
the ceramic hair iron- I've seen this as cheap as 20 bucks. Its time consuming though, and its hard to do the back of your head unless you have a friend whose willing to do it for you.<br><br>
hair product called bioSILK - This stuff is great. It smells good, makes your hair shiny and less frizzy.

I don't have curly hair but biosilk is really nice stuff!<br><br>
If you are brave, you can get the asian hair straightening done at a hair school for much cheaper. Or if you know a hairdresser, they may be able to hook you up outside of their salon.

It depends how long your hair is and where you go. If you go to the expensive American salons that offer it can be like 400 dollars....However I found a korean lady that owns a low key salon who did mine for 150 and I have pretty long hair. 150 dollars is what you pay for a hi-light or color around here so even though its alot its better than 400 dollars. Plus its great... I wake up with perfectly straight hair without even brushing it. I almost never "do" my hair. Its always wash and dry. Oh and the best part is humdity does not affect your hair at all! If you think about how it saves me a year of "doing" hair time... 150 bucks is sooo worth it

how long does it 'last'? In other words, how often would you need to get a touchup?

When you get it done, its perfectly straight to the roots so it depends how fast your hair grows. But even if your hair grows out a little the weight of the rest of your hair keeps it pretty straight still. They "say" that by 6 months you can see the roots and should get a touchup however I do it every 1.5 years. Pretty much when you have to start using the ceramic iron for most of your hair then its time to redo it. And my hair grows unbelieveably fast

I have surfer hair. Never looks brushed but one thing I learned recently is when I take a shower, I never let the hot water touch my hair. I love it on my body but it makes my hair frizzy. Shampoo and rinse on the coldest setting you can handle and see if that helps. Also, use good shampoo. I use Neutrogena.
