Do you guys use heat and hair product to style your hair at least 5x/week? I think I lose a lot of hair doing that man.. Every morning lose ~20 strands of hair. I didnt go count them of course, just an estimation from looking at the floor.

I used to have similar issues like you, sometimes when the hair is long, there can be as much as 50 - 60 strands on the floor, I almost wanted to see doctor back then.

But after I cut the hair shorter, and wait for it to dry naturally to about only 10% wet, then I use hairdryer (with the diffuse attachment thing + lowest heat) to dry the rest. This will keep damage to a minimum.

For conditioning, I apply a lot of conditioner to the hair and let it stay there for 30 mins before washing it off.

I only use a bit of powdershake + hair spray, though.

For maintenance, I use water matrix after every shower to moisturize the hair and also that bulboton hair loss thing to take care of it.

of course, all these hair products add up to quite a bit (since i also perm which sets me back by another $150+), but it's worth it long term.

Hi all,

One question for this typical kpop hairstyle.
See below vid:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vyekWBfZAqM

Look at the guy with the red checkered long sleeve shirt and the ball-like blonde hair on the left.

Did he apply some sort of wax + spray on that hair, or is it naturally thick like this? When he turns his head, the hair doesn't move a bit.....the whole thing looks like a wig. Is it, or is it not? :eek::eek::eek:

I've seen a couple of guys here in SG (PRCs, to be exact) with similar hairstyle and when the wind blows (huge winds), it doesn't move at all.

If the hairstyle is short like those combback or crew cut and wind blows and it doesn't move, I can understand, but this type of long one? It defies logic.

Can someone explain or analyze? :eek::eek::eek:
one word.

PERM

i think i'm just greedy lah, i want the hair to absorb as much nutrients as possible. also, i find that when i put the conditioner longer (20 - 30 mins), it can really soften and clean away the spray and stuff there. Previously when i apply and just wash off, the spray and hair products can't go away (shampoo is unable to clean the stuff off, only the olive oil conditioner can)

i remember reading an article some years back which says conditioners need time to be absorbed into the hair.

of course i didn't. :s13::s13::s13:

i take a long time to bath (20 - 30 mins), slowly wash.
what happens is, at the start of the bath, i apply conditioner and let it stay on the hair. Then, for the next 30 mins, i just bath normally, then before stepping out of shower, i wash it off.

feels really really good and hair feels very soft afterwards. :s13::s13::s13:

Can consider using hair mask the next time, for deep conditioning. And yes, it is indeed true that leaving it longer on the hair will enhance the end results, as it takes time for the hair mask/conditioner to work into the inner hair layer. If you have budget, can bring it further by using conditioning heat cap or steamer to DIY at home. :)

I guess most people use blowdryer and styling products on their hair everyday. And of course, there will be consequences that follow. But it is not the end as there can be ways to reduce the damage done (preventive) or to fix it (corrective).

You can consider using a good heat protectant to reduce the heat damage done to your hair when you see symptoms caused by heat, such as dry or frizzy or even split ends.

When you feel that your scalp is often itchy or feels "dirty", try out a scalp cleansing shampoo to cleanse it well. And if its you having a hard time to comb through your hair due to excess styling product residues in the hair, try changing to a stronger cleanser to do a better job.

First impression after reading your post, get yourself a new and stronger cleanser. It seems that your hair is not cleansed properly that leads to probable yanking off of the hair. I could be wrong as you will know it better yourself.

like jh say, only if u using old fashioned hair mask then u leave in long. for modern conditioners its best to not let it soak there too long tho... not too great for scalp. u know they always say conditioner avoid scalp? i think if u leave in for so long sure will flow onto ur scalp rest there one

Then IMO, it might have to do with weak hair follicles. Try getting hair tonic or ampoule to strengthen and nourish the weakened hair follicles. Condition should improve from there.

I wouldnt use "old fashioned" but instead, conventional. For hair conditioner, i will wash off probably after 30 seconds or so. Wouldnt be more than a minute. It will probably do more harm than good. Silky smooth hair can be achieved through many other means such as vitamin booster, which is getting increasingly popular nowadays.

But when it comes to deep conditioning, hair mask is still one of my preferred options to go for.
