    I have thick straight Black hair and I usually don't apply much of anything to them (no hair gel or anything) and at times (with it being windy) I feel that I truly mess my hair up and they get out of shape and everything (they look very messy). So far I have not had a haircut (last got one in August).

    I've started using just a dab of extra hard fixing gel,
    I comb my hair parted to a side, the brush it to shape, apply a little bit of gel in my hand and extend it carefully over the hair, specially the front and top and just what is left in my hand over back and sides.
    That's enough to keep it in place but my hair is short now.

    Do you use conditioner? It helps quite a bit. Especially combing right outta the shower.

    Also try using a bit of argan oil. Its made my hair a but softer in the short time I've used it and a bit more manageable.

    I have not applied hair gel too much simply because it tends to make my hair look weird at times, I want to know what kind of looks I can pull off with long straight thick black hair

    A lot of tips which are very useful for hairs but Oiling is the best tip for hair falling. Mix amla oil and coconut oil in equal quantities. To this add 1 tbsp of lemon juice. Apply this mixture all over the scalp. Keep during the night and wash off with tap water in morning.

    I wish there were magic oils to stop hair loss, but to my knowledge there are only two medications that may help: minoxidil and propecia.-

    I have cow licks going in every direction on my head. When I wear it longer the weight usually takes care of the problem and I can get it into shape with any light gel, When I wear it short I really need some holding power to get it shaped and going in the right direction. My stylist turned me on onto MITCH / Paul Mitchell last year and I ve been their biggest fan since. Great shaping quality, lasting hold and it doesn't look like you've shellacked your head.

    Argan oil is easily absorbed and will not make the hair feel oily. This is a big plus for many.
