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.

Hugs, Charlie

I use shampoo and conditioner, and I brush it, but that's about it.

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

      So I made a video about my worries about socially transitioning on Youtube. About easing my way into being a woman out in public not just in the comfort of my own home.    The more I spoke about it the more clueless I felt I was as to what would be most comfortable for me and for other people.    Like, it will be super scary going out dressed as ME. Not because I'll be uncomfortable but worried about how people will look at me and treat me.    What are your experiences? Did you ease yourself into it? Or did you just turn up to work one day with full make up and dress.    My video is here where I speak more on the topic -      I wish I knew how to stop link's I post from making a huge deal of it. How do I make it stop showing a giant pic of my ugly face?

      Hi Tracy  I like all of those.  My favourite Song of all time is Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.  There have been others but none like this. Carrie

      I went into the city today this picture is of my in front of the Queen Victoria Building which is in the centre of the city and is very old as you might guess from the picture.  This was just before I met with my image consultant which went terribly well. 🙂 The other picture is of my at my local chess club.

      It's a difficult one has it has changed over the years. I probably could not pick a single one but The Rolling Stones, The Doors, Creedance Clearwater Revival, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd and The Ramones would have to be in the shortlist. Having said that lots more are coming to mind. Individuals like Carlos Santana and Chuck Berry. Such a variation!   Tracy

      Hit Tori Glad you had a good day!   I know how hard it is to stop I have smoked since primary school.  You can smoke on the medication but it is not recommended though I always have.  My doctor told me at the beginning to had half an aspirin if I was going to smoke because it would help to stop the blood from thickening too much. I saw my psychiatrist for the first time to day and he told me I would not be seeing him again.  While that may sound bad it was wonderful.  He wrote me a letter of support form SRS surgery.  He said many of the doctors in Thailand know him so it is a great step.  LOL I just need to find a doctor now! 🙂 🙂 With lots of love Carrie

      Hi Tori Sorry was talking to my dad to give him the news from today which was fantastic.

      I've had a good day, Carrie.  I just finished writing about it in my blog.  How about you?  It's after 11 here on the U.S. Pacific coast; almost time for bed.  Contemplating one more toke and a half a cigg before bed.  I'm trying to wean off the ciggs for good.  You would think if a person only smokes 5 a day, might as well quit, eh?  Not that easy; they're my friend when I need a break.  I'm pretty resolved on it now though.  Don't want to smoke and take E together.  I'm giving myself until my B-day.

      Congratulations @Shay & @Kaltia_Atlas . I know that you’re both very happy right about now. The thought of taking that very first dose is still as fresh in my mind as it was back then. I’m sure you‘ll both will have this memory for the rest of your life. Another huge milestone soon to be completed for the both of you ladies.   Best of luck on your next adventure! Susan R🌷

      Welcome @Hammertime. I’m glad you found us. It’s nice to see another Washingtonian in the group. With a little hard work (emphasis on ‘little’), you’ll likely find many of the answers you're looking for and even make a few friends along the way.   If you feel comfortable doing so, maybe share with us a little about yourself and your journey here. I’m sure many would be interested.   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      Should I leave the dark? Show everyone my heart It’s safe here But so so hard to stay I want you to see who I am But I don’t know if I’m a man If I don’t know who I am Who can? I am so so scared To tell you what I feel Because I can’t figure out If my feelings are real I’ve been talking to others And nothing is helping I can’t tell my mother That she’s got two sons I look at myself and I hate who I am Is that because I’m trapped Or because I feel fat? No one taught me how to deal with these things Am I trans or just tired of gender stereotyping? I don’t know who I am I don’t know who I am!! Someone please give me a helping hand! Give me a gender that I can accept Give me feelings I can understand Give me a body and make me feel safe PLEASE help me find who I am! I want to be me   But no one knows who that is
