See This is the thing! When I cut it it just comes back! like instantlly! I don't use heat becuase it mkes it worse and I only use conditioner because I know sometimes shampoo makes it worse. I use serums and oils. My hair never used to be like this intill like a year ago it use to be pretty and stariaght. I dont know if its beacuse I tuck it behind my ears, which I used to do all the time when it was pretty or because I have well water which I have had for ten years. i know My younger sister has the same problem and she lives in the same conditions as me! I hardly ever use a pony because it just makes the wavey cress worse! I need help!?
grow it out- Bangs will not work for me either- too wavy to tame
Find a stylist who understands what you want and have that person teach you how to work with your hair
Try the John Frieda hair product line, available at most drug stores.They are a real life saver for me!
I use the anti-poof shampoo & conditioner from Sun Silk (at Walmart). The blue bottle. A BIG round brush also helps. I, like you use to say heat hurt my hair & let it "air dry" but now I use the round brush & only allow the flow of air on the hair on the brush. It works great & I finally have decent hair -if not the "Pantene Hair" I always wished for. Good Luck!

I don't know why you can't make a pony, I think wavy/curly ponies look the best! My hair is perfectly straight until it gets below my shoulders then it starts to wave like crazy. Maybe if you cut your hair a little the wave would fall out. Might make your hair more manageable, too. Hope this helps. What's a "wheatish" face? We don't have that expression here. (08/26/2007)

I think you could still wear a ponytail. Don't try to pull all of the wave out, just gently pull back and gather into a covered elastic band. Let your waves work for you, around your face. The shorter bits will soften up the round shape.
When my hair is long, I like to pin it back loosely with bobby pins. It's one of those controlled chaos-looking things, just sort of piled on the back of my head, with some curls going this way and that. Maybe try that? It takes me like two minutes, tops, to do it. (08/27/2007)
I am not a person who likes to fool with my hair. It has a lot of natural curl with an irregular wave pattern in the back. When I was young (1950s) I wore a pony tail pulled up to the crown and it hung down to the collar of my blouses. People with wavy or curly hair can wear pony tails. I now cut it myself with a trimming razor and taper it with no shaving at the neckline. I keep it very short and don't need to do anything but shampoo and keep it knocked out of my eyes. (08/27/2007)
You have long, black beautiful hair and big, dark eyes, and you are not satisfied with that. Oh to be that young again. How about pulling the hair on top to the back, and hold it with a barrette or a covered rubber band and ribbon? That's a classic style for long hair. If it's long enough to braid, you could twist the braid into a knot and pin it to the back or top of your head. (08/27/2007)
I also have long and wavy hair. What I found is that a haircut with long layers works best with the curl and I can still pull it into a ponytail (which is mostly what I do). If you have problems with frizz, using conditioner helps. (08/28/2007)
I realize I am on a 'thrifty' website, but for 14.95 you can upload your photo on thehairstyler.com and try on a ton of different hairstyles and see exactly which ones will suit you. (08/31/2007)
I've got very thick, dark, curly hair. First of all, buy the best, thickest conditioner you can afford. Then after you wash with shampoo, put conditioner on and leave it in. I also then put a curl balm (cheap Sunsilk brand) and mousse (again, just a cheap Sunsilk brand) then I tip my head upside down and blow dry it with a diffuser, touching it as little as possible.
While a good haircut helps (get them to thin it and layer it) these tips keep frizz under control too.
Of course, if you get oily hair this won't work, but my hair is very dry and coarse, so never gets oily.
This course of action means I only wash my hair 2-3 times a week and when I get up in the morning I wet my hands, run them gently through my hair and I am ready to go! Also, as an emergency fix, moisturizer is GREAT to control frizz, just as good as all those expensive creams and can be used on hair when dry.
Enjoy your curls, they're beautiful! (09/04/2007)
Sorry, meant to say buy the BEST and thickest conditioner you can afford, not the most expensive. Obviously price isn't everything, even with conditioners!
