What's good for keeping curls nice, and/or how can I keep them nice? I buy so much stuff, but nothing ever works how I want it to. Usually I put stuff in my hair while it's still damp, but when my hair dries, my hair is either way too hard, or gets really poofy D:

Yeah, and if you get straight, short bangs (like Rainie Yang) and you have eyes that are considerably close together then its cute if it's width ends a cm farther from the far side of ur eyes. =)

Ne, ne guys. What do you guys recommend to properly straighten your hair? Not including chemically doing so and ironing. When I got my haircut, they blowdried it and I was all ... "That isn't my hair isn't it?" [In shock of perfectly straight hair]. So I tried blowdrying when I felt like it but my efforts were in vain. Hahaha. Do you guys have any tips for properly blowdrying your hair? Thanks ne~ ^^



uhm, when blowdrying, to get that super sleek straight look the air flow from the blow dryer needs to be directed "down" the hair shaft from the roots until the end that may sound relatively simple but in reality it means that you need to elevate the nozzle of the blow dryer above your head not only is this a challenging task for some short armed people, it can be quite tiring to hold a blow dryer up above your head for an extended period of time. another trick is is learning to skillfully utilize a brush and a blow dryer at the same time many people have to practice using a brush in one hand and a dryer in the other in such a manner as to be able to successfully anchor the section of hair being dried with the brush while still directing air flow from the top down
and about time..Allow plenty of time to blow dry so that you create your dream style. Speed blow drying can cause frizz and other issues to pop up.
If your hair is prone to frizz, keep your fingers out of your hair until it is 100% dry which means no finger combing yet.
and uhm alternate hot wif cold
since the heat from the blow dryer "opens the cuticle and allows a style to be formed". finishing a section with a blast of cool/cold air from the blow dryer will help to close the newly created texture or lock in the straightness of the section.
start with hot and finish with cold on every section to first build in the desired style..lol

I think round faces look perfectly fine for bangs. You could do many, many things with your bangs with that facial structure. You could bob it bluntly--though I wouldn't recommend that. You could have the bob, just not as blunt like my friend Maxichan has. I can't send you a picture of her but she's somewhere on my buddy and her picture is up. With a round face you could also have short length hair such as Ueto Aya. I say don't be hesitant to experiment since if in the end you don't like the outcome, you could always clip your bangs up. That's what I do on lazy days. =D Sorry about the no pictures stuff. I was kinda sorta lazy. ^^;

on average how much should a person straighten their hair? i usually do it like 1-2 times a day (when hair is dry) and i've haven't noticed any damages but my hair is starting to poof alot so im just wondering should i keep going? my hair has thin alot after like my 2nd week of straighting my hair.

also i have a cow-lick (where the front part of your bang sticks up like a cow just came by and licked it <,<... bad part is it's only on on side of my bangs!!! >.<) on my right hair bang so it always sticks up and i want to get that down... how do i do that w/o using massive amounts of gel? should i just straighten it over and over until it stays or maybe wax it in place?(takes quite a rub down) i'd like other methods that involves the least amount of products and ironing, i was hopeing more for like maybe a shampoo (doubt there's ones) but any thought counts i'll take any idea cause my hair, especially bangs are starting to frizz.

thank you ^-^!!

This may seem reallyy weird, but I have specs that gets in the way of my long bangs at the side. Like, the bangs is cutted slanted, so it's longer- but 'cos of my specs, it curls up! Is there ANY cuts/ways to have a nice hairstyle while still wearing my specs? I don't really fancy the use of contacts (I'm incredibly scared of pain)

Er, if it's any help, I'm asian, with layered hair- slanted fringe.. Erm. Short sides infront that gradually layers to longer hair at the back. ._. Makes sense?? lols.

i've got cheap methods and more expensive ones (all involves shampoos and conditioners >.> DuH! ^-^) well i'll start with cheap....be cause we all are in some ways.... well usually to have a nice smooth sleeky shine you want to massage your hair for a while with condioners (your choice, but my sister says this stuff is great and the stuff is loreal vive pearl shampoo and conditioner ( the conditioner is the main part here for it gives your hair the shine and smoothness... where as the shampoo is only there to clean and nurish), i swear she uses it not me >.>) well yea and while massaging your head you wana to do that for i'd say a good 1-3 mins then rinse with cold water. and you want it cold because it closes the hair folicle at the shaft. wel then using this same method you can also buy more expensive products better for retaining your hair's new color. but loreal works. it's medium and wont damage your hair coloring much. or what i usally do is just buy any product from salons and asks them personally, which product is best for bleached hair. because mostly they'll tell you the product (that they have but it works so i dont mind. i usually shop from salon places or online for my hair products any who o.O) well yea there ya go hope that helps you giving you hair a new shine ^-^!
