So I picked up The Big Tease at a Lush store today, after reading about it here and it being discontinued. On the label it says it has a "fantastic shine". Just how fantastic is this shine? I prefer low shine/matte finish and I haven't used this yet. I was told this was the last one they had in the store, so I just bought it anyways. If it's too shiny, I may return it.
Got some questions about the ole hair (male, btw). I have rather wavy, dry, thick hair. It's getting to a length now where I don't want to style it with pomade anymore and just wanna let my hair do its thing. I recently have been washing my hair in this routine:
Monday: Shampoo (put in at the beginning of shower, then wash out at the end)
Put conditioner in after that, and wait about 3-4 minutes and wash out
Tuesday: Just conditioner (put in at beginning of shower, the wash out at the end)
Wednesday: Same thing as Tuesday
Thursday: Repeat Monday
Essentially I skip 2 days. Both my shampoo and conditioner are moisturizing and are recommended for dry hair.
My hair still seems a little too thick on days that I wash it with shampoo and need some recommendations on what to do and if I am currently doing something wrong. I was thinking about either
1. Skipping another day of shampoo
2. Keeping same pattern but applying leave in conditioner after I get out of shower
The Bronner's rinse is insanely hard to find. I still haven't found a place in New York that carries it. I have only gotten it online. There are a lot of sulfate-free and silicone free conditioners out there you can get easily. I will warn you the Bronner's in a very weird product. You have to dilute it and pour it over your hair and massage it in. Since it is mostly lemon juice it burns like the devil's asshole if you get it in your eyes, or if you just shaved. While it is cumbersome, and odd I find that it works very well to make your hair sleek without buildup. If you want to try to find a regular sulfate free silicone free conditioner Loreal makes one in a orange/rust colored plastic jar that is very good.
Why do you say diluting is a must and roughly how much do you dilute it? I've been using it for a month or so now and really like it (haven't diluted it at all), but God damn it hurts when I get some in my eyes or a cut or something.
Just signed up to the forum but I like what I'm seeing so far. Anyway, I was just wondering what you guys thought would be an appropriate hairstyle for me (heres a secret, I'm 21 and have never been to a barber/salon because my mom is a out of practice barber, or used to be, and she's been cutting my hair since birth). Anyway does anyone have any suggestions (or can anyone weight in on what my face shape is? Google wont tell me because every site has a different opinion - the general toss up seems to be between heart shaped and diamond). Also, would anyone be kind enough to enlighten me on barbershop/hair salon etiquette? How do you go get your hair cut? I mean do I bring a picture or do I ask the person cutting my hair what would look good? LOL sorry for sounding so newby and stupid but it is what it is. Thanks for any future input !
