Whoever the fuck said Asians need straighteners. FUCKYOU

Okay with that over with, go die.

-_-" I used straighteners SLIGHTLY for like 3 days, and my hair's kinda wrecked. My bangs feel dry and bitty (damaged), and the head feels weird.

Washed it like 3 times, still the same. Starting to try some Dry and damaged conditioner, maybe it'll help after a few uses.

ANY HELP WILL BE APPRECIATED.

Also, who thinks I can get the same hair as the protagonist from Final Fantasy Versus XIII? :O

Any idea how I should ask my hair cutter to cut it? :3

some hair straighteners doesnt dry your hair but those are a bit more expensive than the normal ones ($100+) aaand the cheap ones tend to 'fry' your haaair.. and the best way to make it healthier is... hot oil treatment..

you can go to walmart or something and buy those hot oil creams...
all you have to do is wash your hair, apply hot oil cream, rap it with foil [you can use a blowdryer to increase the heat if you want], let it stay for about an hour, and rinse...
you should do this every month..

hopefully this helps (=

What's Hot oil treatment...

I'm never going to striaghten my hair again. I just want my hair fixed

Lol happened to me to my hair was so fried when I us eot use my straightner. It's a lot better nwo though. But yeah I agree with lovemixin theres many kinds of straightners and the cheap ones tend to eff your hair up. Also always remember spray a thermal condition spray on your hair if you're going to use any heat thingy mabobers on your hair, such as blowdryer, straightner, curly thingy. Lol. Welp hope your hair gets better.

hot oil is like deep conditioner ? LOL, i dont know hot to explain it but yeaaa...
it doesnt burn your head or anything.. it heats up a little depending on the brand that you buy.

you can try using thermasilk shampoo and conditioner too.. (=

Well, it was a given that straightening = damage.
So if you don't like that, just don't straighten >__>

For Versus (<3) just go show the stylist the pic (make sure your hair is long enoguh though)

O_o I think I might go buy a grey/blue dye and try see if I can use it xD

My hair is pretty much cut like Versus already. I'm going to take a pic to them and try get it soon.

Anyways, can you like, tell me is it best to use foil with it. My mother suggests I just use a plastic bag, coz it might give me a static shocK O_o

//edit: hopefully my hair fixes itself soon. It's a bit weird and bitty still Probably burnt.

Yeah, Asians use straighteners. Depending on what style you're going for, straightening helps.

Also, did you make sure your hair straightener has ceramic plates? That helps lessen the frying action or something. Just like what lovemixin said, good hair straighteners are like, $100+. **Edit:: Hm, you live in UK right? Umm, I'm not sure what the currency ratio is from there to here -not very smart about things like these- ^^;

As for that hot oil thing, I heard it's good on your hair, but I'm not too sure about how to apply it. >_<
I usually google something like that.

you can use both... i dont think itll shock you...
but if your mom doesnt want you to use foil, you can use the plastic bag..

or buy a shower cap and use that.

Whoah, hmm, then your hair must be really sensitive if it damaged a lot [lol, guessing~]. Just continue with the hot oil treatment, and don't forget to keep using conditioner a lot. ^^
