My hair is always very frizzy when dry, any way I can take care of it without arrousing susspision from the rents?

I would suggest a smoothing conditioner used whenever you wash your hair, but maybe you already do, I dunno. It's not strange for anyone, male female or otherwise, to want to tame frizzy hair, I wouldn't worry about anyone's suspicions.

I agree with Shilo, There is nothing male or female about many hair products. Scents used are the only problem. Kill the frizzes with no fear.

I recommend trying Herbal Essences Touchably Smooth shampoo and conditioner.

I would highly recommend getting a flat iron, that's how I deal with frizz aside from the conditioner, but that might not be something you're willing to do.

I've heard that the "leave it in" kind of conditioner helps for frizzy hair. I've a headful of wavy frizzy hair but haven't tried that product as of yet.

You're not styling your hair in any way? How long is it? Maybe start looking up some hair styles for however long your hair is (short, medium, long) and use the defense that you just want your hair to look good. No harm in that, guys and girls do that.

For some women quality hair comes naturally but for most girls it's literally a battle.

Thinking of it reminds me of all the commercials for beauty products out there.

Worst of all, it's something everyone has their own solution to.

Myself, I've learned not to wash my hair everyday. In fact, it's best if I do very little to it at all.

My favorite conditioner is Paul Mitchell. (Purchased from a salon so that you don't get bottom of the barrel stuff)

A friend recommended that I only wash my hair once every two weeks but I was so used to washing my hair every night that

I kept ignoring her. Finally when I went on a trip I wasn't able to wash my hair for a while and one day I woke up and

my hair was PERFECT.

In fact, this might seem crazy but it helps to not even brush it at all. The more you brush it the more the abrasion can

dry it out.

Shower at night when it's the coldest and let your hair air dry.

Last but not least, I have a trick of my own that I haven't done in a while but it used to work great.

Put on a Santa hat and do a lot of exercise. The oils from your head get trapped inside when

you sweat and your hair becomes shiny and soft!

(I learned this by surprise while working as a valet around Christmas time)

Argan Oil. I only recommend Moroccan Oil, or One'n'Only Argan Oil as good brands. I have fabulous hair. (;

PS. Moroccan Oil cost 40$ per small bottle at Target, and One'n'Only is sold at Sally's Beauty supply store for 10$. .

I dunno about how well it works, but my (now ex) hairdresser used moroccan oil spray on my hair last time I went to her, and if nothing else it smelled amazing. I mean, like, I was sniffing my hair every ten minutes or so up until I washed it out. I wish I could afford to buy it.

OH ALSO. If you have very frizzy unmanageable hair, there is a simple and expensive solution. Dye your hair darker, like black/chocolate brown, dark hair dye closes the hair cuticles. Closing the hair cuticles make the hair really soft and shiney! Dark hair dye just changes the texture of hair in a good way. People dye it for the texture change rather then the color. Its actually very simple to do at home. IF DONE RIGHT.

So...

Dye your hair dark.

Apply a Hair Gloss(Not Glaze) every 2 months.

Wash your hair only 3-4 days a week, less is you can.

Condition a lot more than you shampoo.

Like I SAID ARGAN OIL is from heaven. C:

SLEEP in a loose braid!

Well those are my fabulous hair tips, hair tips get it? HA.

I to have been bothered by frizzy blow away hair. My hair is very thin and dry. This weekend I tried Volumizing Mousse in my hair. Wow. I put about about a tennis ball size rubbed into the ends of my wet hair. After blow drying, I have great control all day long. My hair is soft, doesn't feel sticky like hair spray does, and stayed pretty much put all day long. I'm sold on Volumizing Mousse. It made a great difference in styling my hair. Give it a try. I've found my solution. Kathryn

      I feel for both of you. I worked 7 years 7pm-7am in the PICU and it wore me down and I ended up with severe depression.  I wasn't seeing daylight most days  Shift work is for the birds. I'm happy for both of you on your post op recoveries and happiness!  @Aurora I didn't realize how similar our hair is! Mine was that bright at your age but has lightened up a bit since then.  My goal is this woman's hair!  She's got some great pointers for our hair texture BTW.

      I've got one here that comes by to help out with the cat food.  Sometimes shows up in the middle of the day.  It gets up in the attic also.  If I'm out on the porch at night it come anyway, and just looks at me from time to time while eating.   I just gave up and named him/her Rorrie.   I was exposed to depleted uranium, which may have helped.  But I'm right on the edge income wise.   I would hate to loose it.  They've been good to me.

      Glad it's going well for you.

      Inspiration What inspires you today? I’m not sure myself what inspires me. OK, I’m trying to write stories about the only non-binary trans bi-gender person I know (don’t know). I’m trying to be inspired, but trying doesn’t seem to work. I don’t feel inspired yet. So I’m asking myself—and the only answer now is coming right here to TransPulse. Thank you, Davie

      I forgot, I can't upload a bmp file.

      Definitely @Bri2020, you'll really be filling that out.   Hugs!

      Sorry about your chickens. I don't know what got to them, but I know from personal experience that a raccoon can climb and squeeze through a tiny opening. I've been trying to get a mother and babies out of my basement for weeks now without hurting them. Finally yesterday the mother abandoned them and I was able to get the little ones to a shelter. The lady from Raccoon Ridge was thrilled to get them. 5 wk old baby raccoons.bmp

      I understand how you feel. We had good luck with our hens but our ducks and turkeys didn’t make it through the summer. This was when we live in the country a few years back. Those little dinosaurs were fun.

      You look comfy Shyla! I went thrifting last night with my wife, looking for "summer evening wear" to wear out to music in the park and happy hour kinda of things. I found three dresses. 1 is a maxi with spaghetti straps and slit side. It barely fits my chest so once I get my BA it will have to go but it looks great now. I also got a bodycon maxi in almost sheer black with a racer back strap set up.  Last but not least is the pre-sewn sarong pictured below.  I absolutely love it and it will accommodate my BA just fine ( I think I will look fab in it at that point although I'm feeling pretty fabulous in it right now!)

      @KymmieL thank you for that. I just failed in being open with my wife and couldn't get away from a life of hiding/lying and she called me on it. Your wife is right and I'm glad you were up to the challenge. I hope I am able to overcome my weakness before losing someone extremely important to me.

      Liz I'm sorry about the chickens. Predators are highly motivated and can be pretty impressive in their efforts.  You might need a corgi lol   They are poultry herding dogs so get along with chickens just fine.   Kimmy, people can def be pretty good at denial. You may have to choose whether to confront the issue head on or let her live in that denial state. I'm all for just being upfront and clear but you know your situation better so.....  good luck either way.   Not much to report in my life other that a great shopping trip at the thrift stores. Pics will be posted in "What are you wearing" thread.  I was specifically looking for summer evening dresses and found three.

      Well to be fair, if I didn't already KNOW what those patches were for, I'd be confused too. Kudos on finding a fun pride event! It looks like I'm going to be sitting it out again, nothing pride-based around here to DO this year. Le sigh.   Hugs!
    • KymmieL
      I am going to a pride event tonight, a story telling called tales from the taphouse. Being open with the wife I told her last night that I was going to this event. Just now my wife says, thank you for not hiding it but I still don't understand. It gave me strange dreams last night. I guess that she is living with blinders on as well. While I haven't came out an told her I am on HRT I am not hiding it either. There are three packages of the patches in the cabinet I have my medication in. right there in plain sight. I think she is just in denial.   Hugs to all, Kymmie

      Sorry about the chickens @Elizabeth Star. I know when something happens to one of my babies, I'm pretty wrecked. I mean I cried for two days because I was getting rid of my CAR. I'm useless if I lose a cat and it would be even worse if I felt that I'd failed them somehow. My deepest condolences. I know exactly how hard that is and how much harder it is on E.   Hugs!

      Thanks for the review.  I will definitely look for it.   Hugs,   Charlize
