  • I have no idea. Shaved heads are in and they actually look good on some.

  • i have been hearing alot about a brazillian blowout. Look for a salon who is certified to do it.

  • Theres this stuff from Sally Beauty supply called Hair One. You use it instead of shampoo/conditioner. You apply it in the shower to wet hair, let it stay for like 5 minutes or longer. Then rinse. And apply a little bit more to damp hair without rinsing. It's awesome! It's similar to the WEN product you see on infomercials but a lot less expensive. It's $10 a bottle but since you no longer need shampoo/conditioner, it's actually quite a deal. The olive oil one works best for me. My daughter has super curly hair, wild hair, and it tames it. My hair is just thick and sometimes frizzy, and it works for me.

  • those above are redkin products that should be available at JCPennies (or their Salons), Also available is this:

    Or check out Sally's beauty supply.  Look for a protein treatment product like :,default,pd.html?cm_vc=SEARCH

    and try a styling gel or mouse (I'd probably go gel) that is thermal protecting and if possible contains protein

  • I wouldn't do the brazilian blow out on already relaxed hair. Especially if it's slightly damaged (which it sounds like it is). You may end up with a chemically shaved head like poster one suggested, lol.

  • did you consider going natural instead of trying to tame it? idk if you would consider that.. I just like natural hair :)

  • For a homemade solution, mix together an avocado, some mayo, and an egg then coat your hair with it and wrap it up in a shower cap (plastic wrap works fine, too!) Sit in a nice steamy room or wrap your head with a damp towel and blow dry it so it's nice and warm, that'll open the pores of your hair and allow the mixture to seep into it. Wash your hair with a moisturizing or baby shampoo and end with a cold rinse. That'll 'close' the pores of your hair and make your hair appear less frizzy. (Rinsing with cold water every day is recommended.)

    A hot oil treatment can also be done at home with any cooking oil, olive oil is nice but I prefer coconut oil for the scent. Rinse your hair with warm water, then apply the oil from the palm of your hand, working it into your hair. Wrap your head in a similar fashion to the way I described above, but keep it on for as long as you can, overnight is best, then wash it just like above.
