Thread: "sleek" hair.

    For hair like that they have probably used a lot of products and a straightening iron. Sure some people have hair like that naturally but I have rarely seen natural hair like that. It's probably styled for that one photo but going out with hair like that it will get messy and tangled afterwards and get lots of flyaways.

    If I flip my hair over my head, the underside is super smooth and absolute silk...love it! However, the top layer is wavy and rough (white dots, breakage). I would give almost anything to know what Iím doing to ruin it. It canít be nutrition related if the new and under growth is nice. Itís no wonder that I have such conflicting feelings between cutting and growing it!

    My hair is pin straight, but to make it look like this I need to get a professional blowdry. Any waves would need to be eliminated with flatiron, I'm sure

    The top layer bears the brunt of the weather, heating, air conditioning, whatever else it has to deal with. You could try a bit of extra babying for the top layer, and cover it with a scarf when you’re outside, when possible. Do you use a silk or stain pillowcase, or sleep cap? I use a silk scarf over my pillow and it makes a huge difference.

    I second hair wrapping.

    Glitch has like 2a/b (or was it 2b/2c?) hair naturally but with wrapping, her hair has that sleek, straight look: https://forums.longhaircommunity.com/entry.php?b=132074
    I am currently mostly lurking; if I ignore your posts/PM/visitor message, I am sorry but I cannot deal with people easily right now. I will get back to you when I am more mentally capable.

    I third wrapping it! If you have any trouble keeping the silk scarf on while you sleep try one of these.

    Good point and advice...thanks, all.

    I will be buying some silk bonnets or scarves and pillowcases. The satin cap I have now is too snug and rubs in the back, so I only wore it a couple nights.
