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,

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. ^_^

      I've come to the realization that my journey to where I am at today started some 40 years ago, if not earlier. I started to cross dress before my teens and eventually got caught by my Mom. I stayed in the closet for many years with my parents being the only ones to know, they didn't support me at all. Looking back I have come to realize that I outed myself many times to various women who I happened to encounter in everyday life while out shopping. They were accepting of me and didn't draw any attention my way while I was shopping. One older lady I remember from Scotland made a point of helping me every time I was in the store to find whatever I was looking for with a huge smile on her face. This was way before I even thought about going out dressed female. Laura would emerge for awhile then would vanish within the closet for a time.   I often wonder how well did I do at hiding in the closet, I remember being teased while in high school about how I stood and walked. Was my fake facade not covering everything as I thought it was. In my twenties I was in the closet living male by day and as much as possible female at night within my bedroom. During the mid to later part I was in college and at night I would put on one of my female outfit to unwind in. As many know college life has its challenges to keep ones privacy, ones sneaking into each others rooms looking in the closets and drawers. Yes, I did have someone get into my room the one year and find my female clothes but there was no mention of it from anyone. I would remain in the closet for another 18 years before Laura came out and wouldn't be put back. I started to dress more female around the house and eventual to the point of going out every time as Laura.   So I say to the ones still searching and questioning, look to your past for some of the answers because they very well could be there. This is not a short journey we under take but one of many pitfalls and rewards to be each discovered along the way. I am sure others here can relate to what I have said about the hiding within the closet afraid to come out but have and seen how wonderful it is to be our true selves.We can not allow fear of the unknown to rule our lives for one day more because the future is brighter without it.    Laura Beth

      Welcome, Tali. I'm so glad you found the courage to say hello to TransPulse. I hope you find this a welcoming and informative place, and a safe place to just be yourself. I also have social anxiety and have found life my complicated with my transgender issues. But, I have found support here, and I'm fortunate to have a few people in my life who accept me. I hope you also find the support you want/need as you make your journey, which will provide happiness too. The happiness will come!!   Gwen

      It sounds like you have a good plan for the future and are getting through the present difficulties with a grace that deserves praise.  I remember the humiliation of being called by my male name in crowded waiting rooms.  Those times were instrumental in getting me to make the necessary steps to change my legal status. HRT and living as yourself are certainly major steps along your journey as is finding a style that works well and makes you feel comfortable as yourself. Thanks for the update and happy birthday!   Hugs,   Charlize

        Hi Mary,   I have slightly more than 20 good trans female friends that I speak with on at least a weekly basis. I have never felt alone and if I really need someone to talk to there is always someone nearby. My friends situation is very different. Don't know what the stats are but there appear to be far less FTM than MTF humans out there. That is stating the friend situation only for him. Now, since he's attracted to cis females, the numbers diminish even further. No clue for how many cis women are looking for transmales  but the number seems to be like really really low. So, to me, online dating is a no brainer.  I've checked a few places and the suggestions on dating sites are not many.   Good for you doing the online dating thing. I as well think we should be up front about who we are and I also think it can be safe providing that common sense is used       I really appreciate your view,   Tess

        Thanks Vicky. Some people like very much to be part of a couple, me being one of them. Good luck at your weddings!!!

      Hi Tali, one thing that helped me was getting out of the house and meeting others. My family members all responded differently  to it. My nephews were pretty much a shrug. It took time for some to come to terms with it too.   Welcome to Transpulse!  hugs, Marcie
