The Hair Thread

This thread is created for forumers to provide tips and tricks on maintaining a good hairstyle as well as hair-care.

After i came back from Japan a week ago, I've concluded that their hair is really not over-hyped, it is a fact that in 10 people on the street, 8 of them have great hairstyles.
A great and attractive outlook does not only depends on how you dress, a good hairstyle plays a very important role too.
In Singapore, i've noticed a lot of people tends to neglect putting an effort to take a step further in styling their hair, common style and texture can be seen everywhere. Example for females, rebonded hair is so common here unlike over there, where finding a person with simple type/fully rebonded hair is such a pain.
After observing for some time, i found out that texture is extremely important. Different kinds of styles requires a certain texture. It is defined as dry, wet, oily and frizzly. If you match your style with the wrong texture, you're pretty screwed.

So you may ask how do someone changes his/her hair texture? It concerns several factors:

- Personal Hair-care
- Shampoo/Conditioner
- Styling Wax/Clay/Cream/Gel
- Styling Spray
- Hair color

You might find most factors on the list above is exactly the same as the factors that affect one's hairstyle. You're right. From this, Texture = 50% of your hairstyle. The other 50% concerns about the haircut, the form and shape.

Remember, hairstyles are international trends. Same for food, some people prefer sashimi over fish n chips and vice versa. For example, amercian hairstyles tend to be more glossy and neat type. Japanese having matte texture and twists at ends. Whereas for china is towards frizzly hair. Malaysia girls love to have straight fringes and frizzly at the back whereas Singapore girls likes rebonded hair.
Therefore, opinions can vary so don't take it to heart. The more the merrier, it can show you how some opinions can differentiate from each and every person.

Those who visit the long gatsby thread in edmw can migrate over here since its much easier to navigate for new users.

Posting of pictures of hairstyle is greatly encouraged as it will help alot in defining texture and form of your hair.

Thanks and enjoy your stay here!

welcome to the thread Renaissance

im also a hair volume fanatic when it comes to hairstyling, personally i dont like flat hair as im more used to style using volumized fluffy hair. its much easier and looks more "layered".

for me, i use volumizing shampoo which u can find in sasa in singapore. just ask the salesgirl for it she'll know.

2nd, hair needs to be "cleansed" as in no natural oil must be present when styling, i have oily scalp, so i need to use tea tree shampoo to make my hair less oily, therefore enabling a better styling palette. just can't imagine styling an oil-based hair. lol.

And yes, the urban legend of washing your hair will make hair thicker and longer seems to be partially true. it all goes down to what type of shampoo ure using in my own opinion. Do not use conditioner if you want volume. Push your hair up lightly from time to time gently. Don't pull your hair up, it'll damage your roots.

my hair few weeks ago.

My hair now, no that's no me.

Best suitable for Singapore's fuck up weather. But needs lots of maintenance though.

Another question:

I am using Gatsy moving rubber (purple) as well as a normal Styling spray after that but the spray caused my hair to look shiny. Any sprays to recommend that can have the matte finish?

Go for a trim once in 2 months, trim as in really trimming and little cutting done, only cut away the "weeds" lol. and yeah, must also tell the stylist that you're planning to leave it to grow long.

frequent trimming can enable easy styling even when it gets thick. cuz most trimming is done inside ur hair, so externally, it still looks like youre still having long hair. also, it makes you feel much more comfortable since theres more air ventilation after a trim.

hard styling due to long hair is because of the thick hair which causes weight, so ur hair becomes flat. because of this, hair "lines" will makes the hair looks layered will become undefined, so most of the time will style till blood boil. >.<

if ur hair gets flat and inner roots get oily after around 6-7 hours, means that you have oily type of hair.

some of my friends they can dun wash hair for a day but their hair is still damn dry and frizzly type. can't imagine me doing that.

bro, i recommend u to try Giovanni's Triple Treat Tea Tree shampoo, can buy at SaSa and Beauty Language. Been using for half a year. Clears off natural oils and residues such as wax/clay and hair spray. Making ur hair clean and non-oily. Can throw away your conditioner liao. lol.

If you notice how stylist in saloon cut hair, sometimes they will clip your hair up before cutting rite?

thats internal cutting. also referred as layering. layering will make your hair become more volumized, at the same time it retains its length.

after cut finish, they let go off the clip, you can see ur hair become like cotton candy lol.
