With volume, naturally your hair will look thicker and fluffier.
Saltwater spray can be one great option to consider to achieve volume.

long and thick hair? haha gotta use a comb. fine bristle.

quick question to all.
should i continue to thin my hair or just cut alittle shorter while leaving the "thickness"?

having coarse hair sucks

anyone uses paul mitchell products?
feel like trying these. going swanston tmr to take a look.

Instant Moisture® Daily Shampoo

Lavender Mint Moisturizing Shampoo
Personally, i feel that if you do not have thinning hair problem, you should try to thin your hair whenever u go for haircut. Too thick doesnt really give you a clean and neat look. Looks haggard instead. With that said, i will also try to cut shorter a bit but this is totally up to one's preference. Just avoid long and thick shd be fine.

Not sure if I got thin hair but I definitely have coarse hair. Haha. After blow drying, sure will fray out, damn messy. My hair is like screaming Asian! Probably will cut a little shorter at the sides and back. I might wanna leave a little length on the top and front. Probably not layering my hair this time and see how it grows out and see the texture. Still gotta consult purple. See she zai anot. Haha

Used to thin/layer my hair too much in the past.

You allergic to that substance? Went swanston today, their Paul Mitchell stuff like suddenly very limited, they say no stock. I bought awapuhi shampoo. 300ml for 16.90. I think next time order from strawberrynet if use already good. They got 300, 500 and 1000 ml online.

You can check out the website. They got listen the ingredients used in each product.
Nope, because Sodium Laureth Sulfate can cause the following
  • Irritation of the skin and eyes
  • Organ toxicity
  • Developmental/reproductive toxicity
  • Neurotoxicity, endocrine disruption, ecotoxicology, and biochemical or cellular changes
  • Possible mutations and cancer

My hair has been alot better in terms of texture and "softness" since I switched to Avalon Organics about a year ago. The Bioton Thickening shampoo is what i use, I don't know if it is the primary factor in my hair "improvement", but it does work.

SLS-free (although there is some green washing), and ordering from Iherb.com is cheaper than paying Watson prices.

I'm generally curious... the packaging wrote no sulphates instead of no sls/sds... does it seriously contain no other kinds of lauryl sulphates? If no is it still bubbly?

They bluff you sia... sodium coco sulphate is just sodium lauryl sulphate made with cheaper ingredients... sodium lauryl sulphate is the sds I'm talking about... but oops! It isn't the related laureth sulphate that the other guy was actually asking about

my bad! Apologies

Edit. I'm in no way suggesting that this is a bad thing. In fact I might just try this one out after my shampoo runs out

Not exactly a pro but in my opinion, clay is usually dry in texture. Use the hard part of your fingernails and dig it out in an upward direction. The amount to use is approximately 1/2-3/4 of your fingernails. Reason in doing so is because you wouldn't want it to get stuck in your nails and this method is easier in digging the dry clay out. Rub them onto your hands till you get a slight burning sensation. You shouldn't see any visible remains on your hands then. Apply as per normal onto your dry hair, in the direction as if you are towel-drying your hair after shower.

As for why you couldn't replicate the same hairstyle that your hairstylist did for you, i wouldn't be surprised. Coz they are hairstylists. Seldom are we able to replicate the same hairstyle that they did for you. My advice is to practise as much as you can and try not to be dogmatic about attaining back the same hairstyle that they did for you. There are so many diff hairstyles out there so just have fun styling it.

actually most of the time cant get effect i think it is coz some ppl hair thin n straight. as in very fine. n soft.. thats what most hair salon ppl will tell u.. they always intro hair sprays after the put the wax/gum etc etc etc.. u ownself make best is when ur hair is wet.. use a hair dryer to dry it but 'style' a bit.. that will help a lot.
