    how can you guys go multiple days without shampooing?

    Right now i'm running/playing sports 6 days/week and can't imagine not shampooing my hair after becoming all sweaty.

    I never condition my hair. When you use product for styling it is pretty much a wasted step. Plus, most of them are just filled with silicones that can cause flaking. Any natural oil based conditioners are good if you have straight hair and want to keep it straight, or have curly hair and want to maintain the curls. If you have waves in your hair and you want your hair straight stay away from moisture. Rule: Curls love moisture.

    I have curly hair and I would like wavy hair unless I can find a hair style that is profesional looking. Any recommendations?

    If you don't want to Japanese straighten it you can flat iron your hair every morning. I actually used to do this until I got sick of wasting 20 minutes of my life each morning. I have seen your hair and it is very wavy/curly, there isn't a product out there that will do it for you unfortunately. I think you have to resort to something very short for a professional look.


    Of course, except you would just have a widow's peak.

    Sure.


    I wouldn't call it curly. Just very unruly and coarse. It is a rat's nest if I don't do anything to it.

    Have you chemically straightened your hair, if so does your hair become dry?

    I am getting a haircut or straightening my hair today, probably going a haircut because I cut my hair about two weeks ago.

    Anything you recommend? I am hoping my hair can do the the following

    I don't do chemical straightening. I might try it though. I just have a product that I use to pull it straight. I have to use a lot of it though. My hair is nowhere near as curly as yours.

    I have gone through a few products and have not had any success, what do you use? I doubt it would help much :('

    Do you think that hairstyle is possible for me?

    Lush The Big Tease. It won't work in your hair. Your hair is too curly to have products make it straight. Why don't you use a flat iron? I used to, but it does make your hair dry. If you want straight hair you are going to have to deal with dryness and just use a cream of some sort for moisture.
