    I don't even try... I can't imagine using products in my bangs, that would be just too much. Oh, I sometimes use dry shampoo, but this is really not so often, it's so easy to wash them only, if needed.

    I sometimes heat style them, with a round hot air brush. But it's impossible to get them behave outdoors, because it's very windy here, so everytime I go outside I'm like why did I wanted to have bangs... But at the moment bangs feel a better choice than no bangs.
    I have heard the mermaids singing... and I do think that they will sing to me...

    When I had bangs in high school, nothing would ever make them stay longer than five minutes after I did them. And since my hair is wavy, they had that awful habit of sticking out in little horns. Which is why I grew mine out and only just cut in some really long (chin length) bangs of a sort a year and a half ago. Some bits to soften my face with updoes. I make a pin curl overnight and then I have a nice little curly wave at the side of my face when I take it down in the morning. When it stops behaving or annoys me I can pin it back up with a clip.

    My fringe would clump and get greasy if I had the tiniest bit of moisturiser or any kind of lotion on my forehead. It didnít behave too badly if I kept moisturiser away from it, except that I have a cowlick and it would always part there.

    My hairdresser put strong mousse in it once to keep it looking perfect but I didnít like the feel of it. I think hairspray would work if you used lots, but again I wouldnít like how it feels.

    Blow drying it while brushing each side towards the middle might help.

    Oh yeah, when mine are greasy or nasty from sweat, sometimes I stick powder in them. You could use a little dry shampoo but I never have any. I use the same oil control face powder I use on my face.

    Well, I know I worry about it too much. Even one of my sons has told me that.

    I have blunt cut fringe. If it doesn't feel like laying normally that day I just fingercomb it back. Doing that gives me mildly Disney Ariel type bangs (not sure how exactly to describe it, voluminous and sweeping), but with a mid part. I like it because it's easy, and looks pretty decent. Though I have pretty average hair and I don't know how it would work with thin hair. My knee-jerk is to recommend that you try to accept your hair and the way it lies, then rock that. Instead of taking time and energy to putting products and heat into your hair.

    Well, I haven't been using any heat. The rest of my hair is always up. Just want to not have to be constantly combing my bangs to keep them in place.

    This! I've tried a lot of different products but it's so much easier to just let them do their own thing.

    I wash my bangs separately or use dry shampoo but products just end up making their way onto my forehead and cause breakouts. I found blow drying from side to side (instead of straight down) makes my bangs more manageable, if that makes sense. I've also had to change the style/cut of my bangs to work with the clumps. I've gone from short blunt bangs to long whispy bangs. Work with what you have

    Mine are short and blunt. They seem to not separate as much when shorter.

    Mine liked to curl into the cutest little ringlets when they were short. Wanted curly hair most of my life but never in my bangs
