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.

I think that's everybody's issue.

KOY … you might try washing your hair at night and going to bed with it wet then using a good skin moisturizer as your "product" in the morning to style it up. Sleeping on it will give you the tousled, messy look and the moisturizer will add just a bit of texture. (I know the moisturizer thing sounds weird, but I learned that from a very knowledgeable hair stylist friend of mine!)

If you have wavy hair and generally want it relaxed adding anything to it generally makes it wavier. Curls love moisture and tend to curl up even more when moisturized with something. That advise maybe would work if you have straighter, but frizzy/dry hair, but waves would just get crimpy-er.

Recently, I got this procedure done on my hair called a Brazilian Blowout. It is usually expensive at around $300, but to make a long story very short I got it for nothing. It seriously makes your hair much straighter, smoother, and shinier naturally. It apparently lasts 2 to 3 months. If you're really distraught about your hair I would recommend it, but it is very expensive. Having lived with this procedure done for about a week now I now know that smooth, straight hair has its very own issues as unruly, asymmetrical wavy hair. Everything sucks pretty much unless you're David Lynch.

Matte clay usually does the trick for keeping my hair straight. I like to use a water based pomade to make it a little smoother first then work in the clay.

Not trying to spend that much on my hair which actually is smooth it just looks like dry crap if I don't do anything to it. I've played around with the gfs straightener but I don't really know what I'm doing

Hair straighteners work very well, but it is a vicious cycle. Use it a few times and then you have to keep using it because it ruins your hair so badly that without it its like a rats nest until it grows out again.

I have wavy-to-curly hair (it varies) and a regular haircut with medium sides (tapered to a 2) and defined (but not shaved) sidepart. I've been very happy with the results I get from using sulfate-free shampoo, silicone-free conditioner, and combing water-soluble pomade (like Prospectors or Bona Fide) into it when it's almost dry.

I can recommend this for people with curly, slightly dry/frizzy hair to achieve some texture and hold while keeping it soft.  Never used anything like it (though my experience is limited).  Certainly not as dry as sumotech.

What's your definition of "texture" Usually that term couples with making wavy/curly hair wavy and curlier, which is exactly what I personally don't want, quite the opposite.

Hey guys!! I have a hair cut picked out but would like to get someone's opinion on if it would work for. I have pictures of what hair cut I want but don't want to post them on a public forum but wondering if I could pm someone about them or if text or kik works I can do that as well.

Thanks in advanced!

Oh FYI I'm 25.

I should have said preserve the texture already there.  It smooths out the rough and dry edges.  It not going to significantly straighten.
