Try all the products form John Frida his got an anti frizz range. Were talking first shampoo. then 5 minute conditioner, hairmask once a week, put foile over and then a towel over it as the warmness will penetrate the air roots. Leave for about 30-60mins depending on the condition of your hair.

What you do to your hair AFTER you come out of the shower is vital, first you can use a strengthning oil, which stop yor hair from braking.

then you use a conditioning spray, rememer doing this while the hair is still wet

Before you blow dry, put some heat-defense/straighetning lotion in it. One by bed hair is good. Just go easy on your hair for a couple of weeks, I know is hard but you have got to realise that your hair is only going to look worse

You should also start with having a treatment for the hair at the your salon every 3 weeks. Just think as it as an investment. Cuz the first step to look good is to have nice hair.

Hope this Isn't to confusing. if you want to ask me anything in perticular feel free to PM me.

Thanks Pucci Mama thats great! I've stopped straightning my hair about a week ago and i find it looks better without being straightened anyway! And i've stopped blow drying my hair every other time i wash my hair basically!What do you think of the aussie leave in conditioner spray?I really liked the 3 minute miricle stuff so i'm hoping the leave in spray won't be too heavy for my hair! I'll invest in some John Frida frizz eaze range as my friend just started using it and its worked really well! What kind of treatment at the salon should i have?
Thanks alot

And dancingellecat !!!

i hate my hair - rant thread
every time i get my hair cut...
i hate it...

it's too 'styled' or 'polished'...

the guy who cuts my hair is a close friend and he is super talented...
but he works at a salon on madison ave across from chanel and he has this thing about 'pretty' hair...
he always wants to blend the layers and smooth out the rough edges...
***which are the very things that i want to keep...!!

but i can't seem to find anyone else who gets me either...
so i just keep going back to him because he is very talented and i never look bad....
it's just that i don't look exactly how i would like to look...
it's too 'uptown' and not 'cool' enough for me....


is it ever even possible to get your hair exactly how you want it?

i can dress myself and i can put on my own make up...
but i cannot cut my own hair...so it is never exactly what i want...
what's a girl to do?!?!?....


(i used to cut my own hair-that should tell you something about how much this irritates me!)

I don't think I've ever heard of someone complain that their hair was too good-looking !

Why don't you ask someone who has great hair, where they go? Or take a picture to your friend and say, "I want THIS."

Sorry those are obvious and you've probably done them but that's all I can think of right now.

i have the SAME problem here in sydney....
the guy is so used to cutting hair of the ladies who lunch that it ends up too polished and too subtle....
but i tried someone else once and it looked like a complete amateur mess...
so i stick with him- because he's fantastic......but too 'safe'.... and sometimes when i get home i take to my hair with the scissors just to roughen things up a tiny bit
i drop little hints each time i go back to see him, and i think he might be starting to understand- actually i think he gets it, but his hands are trained to coif each hair to perfection

my advice is tell him!!!!...
ask him if he can do something a little edgy...
make it into a joke....say something like "you're too good...my hair looks too pretty!.....i need you to be a bit more careless and make me look a little more messy...."

i have had two amazing haircuts in my life....
on the other side of the world.....
he hit the perfect balance between elegant and edgy....

i think you've either got to take a chance and be willing to try a lot of cutters and risk a lot of awful haircuts until you find the one thats closest to what you want.... or you have to stick with the guy you know is going to make your hair look good and either tweak it at home or persist and hope he loosens up a little...

good luck softie- i know your pain.... !

YES!!--take a picture!! Don't be shy.. and tryyy others!!! don't be scared to try other!! what is cool to you may not be cool to others everyone has different views on what is 'edgy and cool'.. besides isen't trying to be edgy all the time a bit.. boring?

I don't know.. but to be truly edgy is difficult either you have it or you--don't.

yes palyxa...i know how ridiculous it might sound to some...:p

but at least adorefaith understands where i am coming from...

that is exactly how i feel adore--
i think he DOES get it but he is just very trained to do it a certain way at this point....
and that is exactly what i want...
a balance between edgy and elegant...(i'm going to tell him that next time!!!)
i think i will try the joking method and see if this gets me anywhere...

because believe me....i HAVE told him.....repeatedly!..
we get into heated debates in the middle of the salon...
**which i find completely embarrassing- because he won't back down anymore than i will !...
in the end we usually end up with some sort of compromise
ie- i get to have bangs but they aren't blunt cut-he blends them...
......

argh!!!....

who's 'trying' to be edgy?...

i am trying to strike a balance...which is the hard part...


i think edgy is just as easy (and as boring) as polished...
i want something ELSE...
something UNIQUE...
so i don't HAVE a picture of it...it's in my head!...that is the difficulty...


thanks for trying to help though...and for responding...
maybe i will try to find a bunch of pics and see iff we can blend them together into a new and unique look for me...

YES!! I am so sick of people 'trying' to be edgy it just looks so HARD and not real.. imo.. looks forced.. and nowdays everyone is is trying to be edgy specially teenagers!!

what is truly chic hair is a la' Lou Doilloin (sp?) when she had long hair.. you know.. relaxed care-free.. but still well groomed, It is hard to strike that balance!

It's in your head?? Maybe describe it so we can try to help you--by maybe finding a picture, sweetie?

softie have you tried pleading ?
sometimes i think my guy is more stubborn than anything else he KNOWS what i want -- he gets it......he is just selfish and wants me to walk out looking the way HE wants me to look

try BEGGING.......
tell him to follow your instructions and do it your way....just once...
and that you'll come back to visit him in a few weeks-when you've styled it yourself- and you'll prove to him how great it looks...
hey, who knows- maybe YOU can teach him a new trick or two...
i dont know about your cutter but mine owns the salon.....and he loves the thought of $$$.....so maybe if you tell him that he'll win over new clients if he strikes this elegant/edgy balance, he'll be a little more willing to try it..... convince him that there's something in it for him !

i think they're scared to break out of their formula sometimes... they have their clientele, they know what works, the hair is always flawless, and they're happy.... but if they realise there are women out there who are searching for exactly what YOU are searching for, maybe they'll open up a little and re-train their hands...

:p

ah! softie & adore . . my tfs sisters . . i also feel yr pain!
have to say apart frm a place in london . . i'm never happy w/my hair after it's cut
i much prefer my hair abt a week or two after it's been cut
when it's a bit disheveled & messy . . vaguely 'styled' but more natural
so my only solution is to cut my hair myself . . or i prefer razoring it w/my trusty razor comb
