Is No poo still a thing?
I'm thinking of starting but I'm uncertain about the methods.
Also hair Inspo
Was gonna post a new thread but since this is up, is there any way to actually get different hair texture? In all the pics on here so far, they have that almost woman like hair where you can see thick strands of clumped hair. Know what I mean? Its not just an afro mess. Theres separation.
I am a part of the jew fro life but with a similar haircut to the main pic, and obviously it looks nothing like that because its just one clump of hair.
Any products etc? Like the asian dude, thats so sick so how the middle has like 4 separated blocks of hair.
how2 Elias? nopoo? what about just water?
>have hair in pic minus any product
>mfw it can get so curly on humid days that it fucks up the hairstyle
I know product could perfect it, but I fucking hate the feel of sticky/mucky/hard hair. I like to be able to run my hands through, its so damn soft.
Also, I have been cutting the sides shorter and shorter, currently getting a 4 when I get it cut. I dont know if it will look good any shorter? How short is too short? I dont want any scalp showing, that shit is gay.
Also also, I dont know when to stop growing the top and just get it trimmed/maintained at a certain length. As it gets too long, it starts to hang off the back and look odd.
When I had shorter hair I would use shampoo only if I was getting dandruff, if I didn't, then maybe once a month, if that.
I would use conditioner more often than that but usually only a little bit to add some good smell to it.
I would more often just wash my hair with cool water. That worked for me most of the time.
Look up an apple cider vinegar/water mixture. That worked well for me. Really depends on the person. Have to test stuff out for yourself to see what works for you.
Can one rock shaggy/messy hair and still be /fa/?
Hair looks like shit at the moment, but this is no exaggeration when I say I've literally washed my hair with nothing but water for over three years. No shampoo, no conditioner, not even any product.
Still kind of do it. Just clean it more often now. I'm just growing my hair out long right now and have to use more product when I'm going through the awkward stages. Still getting a feel for what works for me at this length.
I'd have to rarely use product when I had my shorter hair. Loved the natural oils. When you hit that sweet spot with your hair it's awesome being able to naturally style it. Would get tons of compliments on my hair.
I've been using coconut oil as a conditioner lately. Something new I've been trying. It kind of works as a substitute for your natural oils too after you shampoo. Pour a tiny amount in your hand, rub your hands in it, then run it through your hair like you would pomade/wax.
>disgusting rat hair that looks greasy even from a potato picture
>how small are your ears.jpg
>tfw no jawline
3 weeks in no poo with only rinsing with cold showers (just started that too) and conditioning. Hair is a lot easier to work with. I've only been putting a dime amount of paste for work but didn't bother this weekend and it looked p good. It doesn't hurt to try bb
You're probably right.
Better pic cause first one made it look much greasier than it is.
I'm picturing you as one of these kids right now and it's fucking hilarious.
got a #1 buzz last week, and I'm loving it short
I think I'll regularly buzz it, but I kind of want to do something unique with it
sorta like the arrows in kanye's hair right now
what if I didn't shave a small circle on the front of my head, and kept growing it out like a front ponytail?
I know it'll look funny
Having a bit of oil in your hair, especially if you've got coarsely-textured hair, helps to ensure that all of the pomade (assuming you're not using a water-soluble product) ends up well-distributed and unclumped. It can be difficult, using the hands alone, to keep the pomade warm enough that it distributes nicely, and using a blowdryer on oil-based pomades makes a horrible sticky mess.
When using shampoo more than three times a week (especially in humid weather), a minute measure of natural oil goes a lot further than the cheaper silicone-based lubricants.
Pomade and paste are different products with different compositions but similar uses.
Pomade, strictly-speaking, is any wax-based shaping, styling or (less-commonly) finishing product. It usually consists of at least one wax and one oil but in its simplest form, could be made from any appropriately-textured fat. Because pomade is made using primarily lipid-soluble ingredients, it will stiffen when cooled and is difficult to distribute through cold or very wet hair. Unlike gel, mousse, paste, and spray, pomade doesn't dry. Being oil-based, pomade has moisturizing effects desirable among those with dry, coarse, or easily-damaged hair. Depending on the glossiness and stiffness of the pomade, its outcome can vary from adding a bit of weight and form to a semi-stiff unwashed style or full-blown greaser gloss.
Pastes, on the other hand, are water-soluble styling, finishing, or (less-commonly) shaping products that can be formulated for desirable results in wet hair. Most are meant to provide results between those of gel and pomade. While pastes do set when dryed, they do not harden completely and may contain emulsifiers and wax or oil. Pastes should remain somewhat flexible when dried. Ideally, pastes provide nearly as much hold as gel, while adding less weight to the hair and drying with a more-natural and less-crunchy finish. Higher-end pastes may contain oils or waxes which provide moisturization. Pastes are available in a wide range of hold and gloss levels. Many companies try to market paste as pomade; if it is water-soluble, it's not pomade.
Pastes and pomades both provide less overall control than most gels, mousses, and sprays. They also look more natural and are less stressed by motion of the hair and so, may look better after a long day. Because pomade does not set, it can be restyled quickly if need be. Paste must be re-wet to be restyled, but does not go as shitty when rewet as, say, mousse. Paste is a lot easier to wash from hair.
anyone have more detailed reference pics of this cut? or even a name of it would be ideal, wanting to go for it but need some more pics to show barber before he just shaves my head
Unless you're detangling hair with conditioner in it, avoid combing drip-wet hair (actually, you should avoid combing really wet hair altogether). Also, the more wet your hair is when you apply product, the tighter it will clump and the closer to your head it will set. Try towel-drying your hair more thoroughly, or even with scrunching, before applying shaping product.
Using curling mousse and a blow-dryer are a short path to big volume, but unadvised unless you drive a magic school bus or are in a glam band. For more natural-looking volume, try a product which sets with a flexible finish, such as a paste or light-hold gel. Apply the product when the hair is still damp and soft, but dry enough that it does not drip. Instead of trying to style it and go, try giving it twenty or thirty minutes to start setting, so that you can redo any weird sections and, if necessary, weigh it down with product and/or water (or scrunch it if you really like those curls).
I like american crew fiber, but sometimes it just doesn't do the job right because my hair is wavy as fuck and humidity kills it. Are there any similar products that will keep it straight without much shine? Sometimes I use dax and it holds extremely well, but I don't always want my hair greased.
Any Ausfags been to Kings Domain barber in Melbourne? It looks like a cool place but I looked it up and got three rather average reviews on yelp that made me reluctant to try it. I just want someone who can recommend a haircut that would actually suit me.
I haven't used shampoo since like... 2009. Well sometimes I'll use diluted shampoo if I have product buildup or I've been sweaty and feel really gross but it's pretty rare. It's nice, I guess? I can't really remember what my hair was like before so it's hard to contrast.
kanye is a celeb so he can pull it off. don't do it. you'll just look like an autistic FOB ghetto nigger
does heat tools make hair soft? also i have thick straight hair and a five head, how to make them obey gravity :/
I have healthy, thick, asian-like straight hair at shoulder length. When my hair is damp it lays down perfectly and looks godly, but when it gets totally dry it kind of lifts itself up to too much volume and looks terrible.
Is there any kind of product I can use to have my hair just chill the fuck out and stay godly after I have showered?
Preferably near odor free, non-stiff and non-sticky.
I have asked some girls, but they generally dont have hair as thick or straight as me.
yes i have this problem too. my hair isn't dry. i used all sorts of oil.
only when it's wet it's pleasantly soft and tamed. there's a science behind this though. i heard that cone-based condish can help. looking 4ward 2 try when my hair is longer.
2y+ no-pooer here. I recently started using some conditioner due to more dandruff and less consistent texture. Works fine. Make sure to use a cheap-ass conditioner though, no silicone etc.
Hair stylist here, I only ever condition
no poo is a troll
for styling I just put productthrough wet hair, quick blow wave and it turns out perfect
get a sulphate free moisturizing shampoo to use after conditioning first
I'm not very /fa/ but I really need a haircut and I don't know shit.
I'm not very good looking so I'm really trying to at least get a decent haircut that suits me. Appreciate any and all suggestions.
Just wean yourself off of it, eventually everything regulates itself. Dilute shampoo and eventually space out how often you use it. There's no rush to do it, just take as long as you need to feel comfortable with it. If you dont have success with it then youve not lost anything
I've been growing my hair for about 9 months now. I just recently started no poo and I HIGHLY recommend it . I thought it wasn't going to work out for me because I work out 3 times a week and my hair is already naturally oily and starts to look disgustingly greasy after a day w/o showering. It didn't work out for me at first but after learning how to do it the right way I noticed a great improvement.
>It didn't work out for me at first but after learning how to do it the right way I noticed a great improvement.
What's "the right way"?
I tried no poo for over a month and my hair was still oily af and I had really bad dandruff.
What should I do with my hair? I'm thinking hitler youth cut
At first I was a pleb all I did was get my hair all wet, massage the scalp minimally, and I used kinda hot water. Basically the exact same way I washed it with shampoo, except no poo. After I started using cold water and really massaging the scalp and working the grease out of my hair with my fingers I was fine. If you're already doing this and it's been a whole month then I don't know :/
Thanks for thinking so. While I did get compliments on it before no poo my hair was a lot more dry and frizzy and it wouldn't hold itself in this style, which I really need it to do at this length.
How do you you guys describe what you want to your barber/stylist?
I don't think going in there and saying "cut it like the guys on effay" will yield proper results.
And if you cut it yourself, how did you learn/what do you do?
What's wrong with giving them a picture? They appreciate it and it saves you having to use words
I'm a complete autist around hairdressers for some reason so I just sit down, show picture, and let them cut it.
Go to YoungStalin.com for pics
don't cut hair yourself unless you're either buzzing or really good at it
>>8977004 here. I'll try again since I didn't get an answer.
Really what to do with this mop. It's becoming way too much of a hassle overall and ends up all over the play by days end especially since I bike everywhere. I kinda want to get a HY but I don't think it will work out cause of how much it curls and I don't want to go full close crop fade. What should I do?
>growing my hair for the better part of a year
>ask friend to trim it up
>comes out way shorter than I was expecting and generally awkward looking
>say fuck it and shave the rest off with no guard, skinhead style
>actually looks pretty sweet
>3 weeks later
>holy shit my hairline is fucking awful
I want to kill myself.
Is there a name for the style or a picture I can give as a reference to a stylist for the buzzed sides w/ the thick top?
Sorta like the OP picture but more trimmed sides and a thicker top that's a little more styled. And what product would you guys use to style the top if you have naturally thick hair?
>Have Jude Law type hairline
>Thinking of taking Proscar
>tfw imagining how much nicer my hair will look
What technique do I do to get this kind of hair shape?
A professional hair stylist at your beck and call. Photoshoot hair is usually not very permanent by nature. That said, anyone at a decent salon should be able to cut something similar and give you an idea on how to achieve something similar with at-home styling (probably using product.)
>the 4 on the right are good fits imo, 2 on the left are decent too
could a guy without a 15/10 face pull this off? how to achieve (lengths, products etc)
how do I get this hair?
I get the cut is pretty easy, but how do I get that texture into it?
Hair looks like this, anything I can do to make it less shitty?
It is really wiry and I'd like to have it not be like that.
It gave me terrible dandruff and you faggots told me it would go away after a while and it never did.
People used to call me hobo, fuck you.
Anyways, taking exclusively cold showers and using shampoo every third day has made my hair look p. good.
Anyone else use this thing while nopooing? I think it's called a scalp brush or shampoo brush. Got it at a japanese dollar store (daiso). Seems to work a lot better than digging my fingers into my hair now that its pretty thick.
Are you David Bowie? Do you have a wonderfully outlandish fit to go with the hair every single day? Can you reconcile looking like that for work?
need to think about those things bruh
Well grease and water and shit. You know, polar and non-polar crap
My experience with nopoo:
Eliminated my dandruff but scraping my scalp after getting wet produces lots of dead skin under nails. I assume that the grease and shit clumped together and formed an actual layer rather than flaky bullshit. Literally a godsend.
Makes my shit hair actually look nice, acts as if it had product in it, without product
Leaves a very undesirable feeling after rubbing it, not sure if just my own psychosis or just girl who rub my hair doesn't care, feels greasy
I don't do full no poo but cycle with a good wash every once (couple weeks) in a while to start fresh, takes about a day or 2 to get back no poo status
Does smell if I don't do the biweekly wash,
Everyday water wash where I just rub and soak for a good while
