View Full Version : "If I don't ......, my hair will"

What happens to your hair if you don't -.......-?

Or even, what happens when you do -........-?

If I don't towel my hair, it dries looking shinier and smoother.

If I don't us a leave-in, my hair becomes mega-fluffy :D

If I CO, my hair sometimes appears darker.

If I don't comb it for a while, my hair rears its ugly head and attacks the nape of the neck with tangles.

If I don't braid it at night, my hair will be irreparably tangled in the morning

If I don't wash my hair at least 5 times a week, it turns into a greaseball

Hah this brings back language class memories. Specifically German 'Wenn ich...' sentences, plus some sort of nightmare conditional tense. Throw in some modals and it's all over :)

If I didn't dust my hair once a month or so, I would get horrendous splits and my hemline would just look sad.

Ok but I still didn't do it right. I'll try again.

If I don't do an SMT soon, my hair will be utterly un-combable.

If I don't wash my hair, it is wavy and voluminous.

If I don't wash my hair, it is also greasy.

If I use any product at all (shampoo and conditioner included), my hair is poker straight and lifeless.

It's a catch-22.

If I don't get my hair dry before bed I will wake up with it still damp. Also, if I use SLS shampoos my hair will poof out into an afro! :laugh:

If I don't wash my hair at least twice a week, the length gets dry and tangly and the scalp gets greasey and gunky.

If I don't wash my hair at least twice a week, the length gets dry and tangly and the scalp gets greasey and gunky.

Ditto ^^

If I don't use a little jojoba oil before I comb, I get a lot more breakage.

If I don't use an ACV rinse, my hair will look dull due to my hard water.

If I don't comb/brush my hair before it dries (yes I brush when damp), it will dry frizzy and wurly

If I over-moisturize, my hair has zero volume, is too slippery, and is all fly-away like duck down.

If I don't scrunch my hair, it isn't as curly as I would like it to be.

If I don't s&d, no growth. :(

March 21st, 2011, 08:47 PM
If I don't use cones, my hair turns into fluff and floats away!

March 21st, 2011, 08:57 PM
If I don't brush it, it remains much flatter and less. . . poofy?
If I don't brush it, the roots of my hair are too greasy and the ends of my hair are knotted
If I don't wash it after exercise, it starts to smell way more than you would expect
If I don't wash it at least once a week the dandruff is horrendous

If I don't contain my hair while I sleep, I will look like Einstein in the morning (and my hair will break off and be really hard to untangle).

If I don't detangle in the shower, I will lose more hairs and my hair will be very difficult to comb.

If I don't wash my hair every day, it doesn't get so dried out on the ends. :)

If I don't brush it regularly while it's down, I will have massive nape tangles.

If I don't S & D, my hair will remain damaged and break off from split ends.

March 21st, 2011, 09:03 PM
Ooh, I have another one.

If I use typical SLS shampoos more than every once in a great while, my hair becomes bone dry and breaks off after about shoulder length. Ask me how I know... :rolleyes:

March 21st, 2011, 09:21 PM
If I don't wash but do brush, my hair becomes smoother and less frizzy by the day. That being said, my scalp gets heavy and gunky if I don't wash every 2nd or 3rd day... :\

If I don't cut it, it gets longer!

March 21st, 2011, 09:44 PM
If I don't condition, oil, and sheen it, it turns to poof, fluff and frizzz.
If I don't wash it about every three days the ends become dry and stiff and stick outward off my back instead of hanging down there.

If I don't wash my hair for 4+ days, the sebum gives me serious root volume. I have more root volume when my hair is greasy than when freshly clean. :o

If I don't brush my hair, it will look fluffier.

If I don't condition my hair enough, the damaged parts will resemble velcro and the rest will get more breakage. My hair absolutely NEEDS conditioner, more so than shampoo, actually.

If I don't use water, aloe vera, bionINFUSION moisturizing hair lotion, and a sealant(shea butter and jojoba oil) then my hair gets extremely dry.

If I don't saturate my hair with conditioner (I have to use so much that it foams up and starts dripping down my back), then detangling is a nightmare for me.

If I don't braid, bun, or twist my hair, then it is really hard to manage because it turns into an afro and it usually gets really dry.

If I don't detangle gently (for me it is probably unconventional for many on this thread) which means small sections, going from my biggest wide tooth combs all the way to a fine tooth comb, then I have serious matting, shedding, and balls at the end of my hair.

If I don't trim my ends, it will break off and looks like it's not growing...

March 22nd, 2011, 12:49 AM
If I don't try a new hairstyle every so often, my hair will lose the fun factor that keeps up my motivation to grow.

March 22nd, 2011, 09:29 AM
If I don't practice benign neglect my hair will drive me insane.

March 22nd, 2011, 06:54 PM
if i dont trim my hair gets tons of splits
If I dony brush I dont frighten people :D the comb is king!

March 23rd, 2011, 03:28 AM
If I don't use cones, my hair will not be amused. At all (>(oo)<)`

March 23rd, 2011, 03:56 AM
If I don't sleep with my hairsock-thing, DBF's coarse beard/stubble will attack my fine, fine hair. I end up with masses of flyaways that are all ear-length.

THAT is why I cover my hair to sleep.

April 1st, 2011, 08:03 PM
if i don't oil my ends its really hard to run a comb through my hair.
if i don't do CO my hair tangles a lot and my scalp itches.

April 1st, 2011, 08:45 PM
if I do use the blow dryer my hair gets frizzy :(

April 1st, 2011, 09:16 PM
If I go to bed with wet hair I'll wake up and find it wavy
If I don't brush it after washing (when it's still wet) it will dry full of tangles and look a bit frizzy
If I put too much shampoo when washing it will look a bit dry and frizzy
If I cut my hair I will get furious :) that's why I'll never cut it

April 2nd, 2011, 12:39 AM
If I run a brush down my length before it dries, it has barely any tangles!
If I am very patient and work slloooowwwllly when I comb, I have far less breakage!
