post #105691 of 109053

Cool, I need to start doing that. They finally have some stores in/around LA. I haven't gone to one yet bc online is still easier but given the alterations (I too need the 34" inseam taken down to 32"), it's probably time to start going in person or at least taking stuff there rather than paying my tailor.

Chestnut hill isn't too bad if you can walk to the D/C. It isn't super convenient though that's for sure.

Suppose that isn't terrible.

Also good to know that if you order online and bring them in they will hem them. The Chestnut Hill store is pretty small and has a lot less options than the website does.

does that american crew stuff work on asian hair?

post #105695 of 109053

American Crew Fiber is heavier than B&B Sumotec. It also smells worse. And is like half as expensive. So there's that.

Basically my problem is that it looks great, textured and a bit messy while it's still wet, but once it's dry it's lifeless, straight and boring.


Sounds like your hair needs a treatment/masque, so you get some vitamins/moisture into it.

I've heard that coconut oil should be good and cheap, if you don't want to go out and buy one.

Don't like american crew fiber.

I missed the earlier convo about hair products but I will second the vote for Sumotech.  Been using it for a few years.  The tubs aren't exactly cheap but they last me a long time.  I use it to create texture and shape my hair a bit.  My hair rarely gets longer than 3" on top so I can't speak for longer hair but if it's what Synth uses I'd say that is proof enough of it's awesomeness.  It gives my normally flat hair a lot of life and movement.  Plus you can reshape it throughout the day pretty easily.

 

edit: (not asian)

do any of the stuff recommended in the last two pages work on asian hair?

post #105700 of 109053
My hair regimen at this point consists of:

A: not washing (just rinsing)

B: A tiny bit of this every day or every other day

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000ULJJ60/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_dp_ss_3?pf_rd_p=1944687602&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B000N2OEDE&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=1WGFVNR9PF659A6JT6SP

It's very light, more like a cream, not greasy and mostly rinses out. There are stronger hold versions if you desire. Try this for like a week so your hair 'learns' and gets acclimated to the new texture. It might take more than a day or two before it looks the way you want.

It'll look this when you get out of bed:

Depends, are you floppy noodle hair asian or spiky brush hair asian?
post #105702 of 109053

I just have a normal one sided undercut and mainly concerned about the long part, would like it to have volume, etc, etc.

post #105703 of 109053
Been using Sumotec by Bumble & Bumble for the past 4 years or so. Not too heavy, doesn't make my hair shiny and gives it a good texture and hold. B&B surf spray is also worth trying.

spikey brush.  I am growing my mohawk back out.  I will probably tie it back in a sorta high ponytail at some point,

post #105705 of 109053

I'm assuming spikey brush is the type that stands perpendicular to where it comes out of your head? If so, have you guys used that trick where you put a beanie on after you wash your hair and let it dry under there? I've used that and it's decently successful in taming my hair and making it less puffy when short. With this method, I generally never use product anymore.

Currently growing out my hair from the typical short on sides long on top. Tying up my hair and putting it under a beanie until it dries is getting me through the awkward grow out phase.
