Fantastic. Thank you all for your help.
post #617 of 1137
I tried this product at Lush called Jasmine Henna Fluff-Ease. It is pretty much like a hair treatment to smooth your hair a bit. It is pretty good, I tried it for the first time last night. It is mostly sold to women with thick unruly hair so it tells you to use an insane amount, I didn't. It also says to put in before you shampoo and condition, but I didn't do that either. I slathered this stuff on after a shampoo and condition and let it sit for like 30 minutes, rinsed out. It basically makes my hair a bit easier to style in the morning now. I would recommend giving it a shot.

Do you have to apply it daily?
post #619 of 1137
No, but I would and am going to.

Just went to Lush and picked up a can of Dirty Cream like you suggested patrickBOOTH. Smell might take some getting used to but I actually like it, smells fresh and natural.

 

What might you or anyone else recommend as far as blowdrying? Apply when damp, blowdry into desired position, apply a tiny bit more? 

 

I never know if I should actually blowdry my hair at all if I'm going for the natural, swept up and off my forehead look.

Blowdrying hair adds a lot of volume and poofiness. Honestly I don't recommend it.

Found a recommendation for this pomade and gave it a shot.



Yardley of London English Lavender. Easily the best pomade I have ever used. It manages to hold my hair into place all day long and without feeling stiff. It even manages to hold my hair in place when I work out, which is something products have had trouble doing for me in the past. Smells nice and for a pomade it's not that shinny. If I had one issue with the product, it would be that it doesn't wash out as clean as I would like.

Amazon sells the stuff for $10.

booth,

grooming creme > fiber?

Do you know any good barbers in the hamptons? I am here until Sunday and I had a horrible experience with the last guy I went to.

blowdrying

I showed the picture you posted to a stylist and she told me that I needed to blow dry my hair to get your look, I didn't remember you ever mentioning blowdrying so I told her she was mistaken. She gave me a "are you stupid" look and I said well I have known the guy since I was in grade school and not once has he blow-dried his hair. lol

she cut my hair and messed up. frown.gif

hopefully I find someone I can trust before I straighten it.

Grooming cream is better than fiber for my look, but it only worked when I was flat ironing my hair every day. Now since I have waves and such I need more hold. Like I said I use The Big Tease from Lush.

As far as blowdrying goes, if you comb it out and put a blowdryer right next to your hair as your comb it essentially does the same thing as a flatiron and just uses heat to and comb to "pull" out the waves. This is an incredible amount of work. Right now I just use The Big Tease and comb it back.

As far as barbers in the Hamptons I have no idea, I have been using the same guy since forever.

You should try their H'SUAN WEN HUA hair treatment and see if you like it. I preferred it over the jasmine henna. It gave me a less oily build up feel to my hair which is a plus because I shampoo weekly. I use the product the same way you described but only once a week and I leave it in for a couple of hours. Not an exact time or anything just whats convient that evening. It smells like a spicy cinnamon chai. I love it but I can see others not taking to it. It uses eggs so it's recommended shelf life is only 4 months but I'm not concerned with best before dates on topical cosmetics.

Picked up a jar of dirty hair cream from Lush like you recommended. Smells awesome, looks cool, applies like a cream. Once it dries its fairly matte and feels kind of like a light paste would. 

 

Have you ever used dirty cream patrick? I'm just wondering if I should apply it when hair is still wet and let dry or towel dry to damp and then apply the cream. Look I'm going for is not too slicked or constructed, just swept up and to the side (off my forehead) for a "I just woke up and brushed my hair off my face". I think lightly blowdrying to the side with a little bit of cream in might help.

 

Anyways here are my first uses:

They told me it doesn't weigh your hair down as much. I need as much weight as I can get with my flufffy head.

Creams don't work on my hair. I need hold, creams just define the waves and curls even more.

What about pomade? I'll need to look into lush...i used to use this mineral cream stuff...forget who makes it next time i go home ill look because i have some left there. This stuff did okay for my hair, but ive been doing a stay in conditioner with pomade and it has been working better than fiber for me.
post #629 of 1137
Same thing. Doesn't hold enough. It will for like 1 minute then migrate back into curls.
post #630 of 1137
Mine doesnt stay straight but goes to waves...my hair is just getting long enough where i am getting some curls...mostly on the sides
