Thread: Straight and Silky Thread

    Default Re: Do we have a straight hair thread?

    Hi!
    I'm somewhere between straight/wavy, but it's certainly more straight than wavy.
    Is it just me, or is getting BSL length layered hair into a good looking cinnabun mission impossible? I always end up with just a funky looking bun.

    Checking in. See siggy below for my qualifications.

    What I would like to see are some styles for 1aF hair. I am blessed with medium thickness but it's still so slippery that I have needed an extra year's growth than other hairtypes need to do similar styles. Even now, at classic, my hair laughs at these lovely no-tool-to-hold-it-up dos many of the less-fine types can achieve. "What? You're trying to put me up with no toys at all? Watch this!" and it slides right out and down my back. (My husband, who has very curly and medium coarseness hair, once watched me try to tie my hair into a knot. He was cringing while I laughed at him. Of course, my hair promptly slid right out.)

    60threet forks and Ketylo's are the only good forks and sticks that can keep my slippery hair up, and still, I have to insert the stick or fork in the right way or sometimes it will slide out. But I got the hang of it and I think those forks are the best for my slippery hair.

    Flexi's are great too when you use the right size, but I think you can't avoid the 'slip-factor' of straight hair with any kind of toy

    You just described my hair! I have straight hair, with a hint of wave on the length and then a wave at the end. It's really hard to describe.

    This is a great idea for a thread!

    Talking Re: Do we have a straight hair thread?

    What I think is great about our hair is how volatile it is. We can have sleek, straight hair that people envy with simply a hair brush, we can have soft s-waves or defined ringlets with just wet hair, bobby pins and rags. I guess cos my hair is not so fine or thin I can more easily see these positives but we all have them!!! Straight hair is shinier and allows us to have any hair we want without heat!!!! Plus updos are a bit easier to achieve, (when not too slippery lol). As much as I often feel painfully envious of wavies and curlies, it is a lot harder for them to manipulate the kind of hair they have. We all have beautiful hair so let's rejoice and focus on the positives not the negatives We get the best of all worlds!

    Siggy variation alert!!!

    Phalaenopsis, you're almost my hair twin. Mine is the same color, though I'm a ii instead of a iii. It's straight as a die, but mine isn't so slippery.

    I used to curl mine into a ginormous mane with a curling iron and lots of teasing, and that's what I miss most now. Learning to like it "just hanging there" has taken me years. But seeing the back of your head, I realize a little more what other people must see, and that's encouraging.

    Another 1a here
    But it's too long to dry it comfortably so I (amost) always have braidwaves.

    I agree about the fairytale ends, since I had my first EVER blunt trim, the ends are more difficult to tuck into buns.
    But the fairytales will come back to me I hope

    It's also very slippery, clips or elastics etc just slide out.
    That's why I have to mist it before I make an updo, that way it has more grip.

    1a with two pontytails...somewhere along the line it stopped looking cute

    @Eresh, omg, I even didn't notice that you're a 1a How cool though! Very pretty hair!

    @dragonlady: ooh, hairtwins, I like that I'm going to check out your profile. Indigo girl also has the changing haircolour thing like me, it's something typical for dark blondes maybe?


    And it's so fun to see so many straighties together. I always thought we were some kind of underrepresented species or something

    I'd like to join too! I find it's easier to work with my hair when it's a little damp - for braids, etc. And when bunning, I always have to make that severe pulled back, tight look to keep everything in place. But wearing it down is appealing - and easy!

    I'm also a straighty - though maybe not a 1a - still trying to figure that one out. But definetely straight!
    I have heard of misting to help buns and such hold - what does everyone mist with? Straight water, or leave in?

    ETA: Cause my hair's so slippery, I need all the help I can get
