So what do you do if your hair is a giant thick poofy mop that shoots out in 20 different directions? Some day I'd like to transition away from the slick-back but I have no idea how to control this monster. Would prefer it to be limper, thinner, straighter, etc. Looks awesome wet.

Sounds like you have similar hair to mine. If you come up with anything, let me know. shog[1].gif Haven't been too successful with controlling it so far.

I feel like the majority of people with thick hair want finer, thinner hair, and vice versa. I have pretty thick wavy hair that won't do anything I want after it's over 2" long. Annoying when I want to try something other than the usual.

Yeah I have very fine, wavy hair that is an absolute pain in the ass to do anything with. Wish my hair was a bit thicker.

^ on the other side of the fence, i wish my hair was finer. My coarse hair means that unless i take steps (blowdry, styling), it just poof up into a giant ugly broomhead like guile from Street Fighter.

I got some bumble & bumble sumotech on somebody's recommendation (I can't remember who now, long thread) and its awesome for my thin sort-of-wavy hair. I was previously using some vo5 matt clay, which works okay, but makes my hair look a bit greasier than the sumotech does. Also with the sumotech, its less noticeable that there is something in my hair when I run my fingers through, the matt clay made my hair clump together a bit more. Sumotech is a bit easier to work with too. And smells better.

My brother is using it too, and he has thick hair that is hard to control, and he really likes it too. Holds better for him than the clay did.

Wouldn't this be possible if you just thin your hair a bit, get an inch of the top length, grow out the sides and make the parting higher on the head?

 

I don't think the pic of your messy hair is too far off.

yeah i guess the thinning is key. there's just so much that it never lays down that flat. thanks for the advice.

Art, you should grab pics of what you want and go to a good spot where the people know what they're doing. They should be able to offer some guidance/suggestions. Just keep in mind that if you do try something new its probably going to freak you out at first. Just FYI, always had good experiences at dicksons hairshop on LES.

At a certain point though, it's simply your hair not being able to keep up with the style you want. You gotta work with what you've got.

cut my own hair for the first time this afternoon. just trimmed the sides and back, but relatively happy with how it turned out. except for the part where i mixed up the guards and took a swatch out that is way shorter than the rest shog[1].gif seems like something that really isn't that hard once you get the hang of it, though, and I could drastically decrease how many haircuts i actually need to pay for, which is awesome. going to pick up a pair of clippers this summer when i wont have easy access to my roommates. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
