I don't know if soaps can do that. Might be easier to buy yourself a straightener.

I need to get one too come to think of it.

I have sort of wavy-to-curly hair too. While straight would be nice, I'd rather just make the most of it naturally :) easier than straightening it every day. Curly is beautiful :)

Hi Rose,

I need to update my avatar. The one you see of me is my "birdsnest" hairstyle, that I had to wear before I came out at work. My hair is quite curly on top, has a straight band around the sides, and back to curly at the bottom - just messy!

Now that I'm out to everyone, my hair is much different: straight with just a bit of wave. I use a blowdryer and flat-iron to achieve it, but may ask my hairdresser to do a perm as well. (it was too short for perming - it grows slowly on top of all it's other faults.) The use of the blowdryer and flatiron can damage the hair, so I use four different products to offset that: a long-term conditioner applied at the salon, a creme rinse after washing, a mousse-style conditioner when I get out of the shower, and an oil that's used after blow-drying. my wife has been doing the same for years and her hair still looks terrific.

At times, I miss the old wash-and-wear style. But, I signed up for this - girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!

Love, Megan

PS - love your name - has a nice familiar ring!

Ah hair, according to my counsellor my single biggest hang up.

My natural hair is very grey, reasonably thick at the sides but unfortunately very thin on top. I would just love curly hair as I think, hair for hair, it looks thicker than straight hair.

I am letting mine grow and it is now nearly to the bottom of my ears.

I have adopted a central parting which spreads my thin top hair over both sides of my head and definitely looks thicker.

Please update your avatar Megan as I would love to see how you look now.

I may have a picture taken shortly of my hair to gauge some reaction.

I just don't like wearing my wig, despite the fact it was actually quite an expensive one.

My feeling is that as with false breasts so with a wig, it just isn't me and who I want to be.

My apologies for interjecting in this topic.

Best wishes,

Sarahw

My hair is the same way. Mellisa is right, you'll probably want to get a straightener, or have someone straighten it for you.

For some reason people seem to like my curly hair, but I hate it! >.< It seems like everyone wants curly hair until they realize how difficult it is to manage. lol I found that using non-polyurethane based conditioner makes the hair a lot softer and more manageable, though. ^_^
