My mother is always asking me on if she should grow out her bangs, is there an age that women should not consider wearing all one length hair. The length of the rest of her hair is pretty much shoulder length.

Mrsmac

p.s. i'm 31, so that gives a clue to her age, although i could never say the number.lol

All "one-length" hair that comes down to the shoulders looks great on a lot of women, regardless of age. Just because you reach 'elderly' status, doesn't mean that you automatically HAVE to resort to the short cuts and weekly appointment for roller sets! I have seen a lot of women 60+ who have hair down to their shoulders - whether it's layered with long layers, all one length, natural color, grey, or dyed, and it still looks great! True beauty & style comes from doing what is right for YOU. If your mom likes longer hair, and it suits her facial shape, then tell her to go for it! She could always go shorter if she doesn't like it - but it's worth the try! Here's a little bit of advice from some women on a site discussing just this topic! It's pretty funny, but very educating! http://www.gwenworld.com/2004/10/my-...ooks-good.html

Thanks for that info. The link is hilarious she is a funny lady.

So far mom still has the bangs, and shoulder length hair, its been that way for a loooong time. I really don't see her changing it any time soon.

I have angled and layered hair. For the first time in my life now I have to blow dry and straigten my hair daily for it to look good. I have perfectly straight hair, but with all the hairs being different lengths it frizzes like crazy! Now I want to just get rid of the layers, and just have straight hair rather then angled. But I know that hair just cut straight can be boring. Any ideas for good styles?

I pretty much have the same hair as yours... Mine was layered and angled.. but I've had to grow out my layers since EasyStraight made my hair totally unmanagable. The ends of the layers - which I would usually flip out or curl under - would lay flat and stick straight, and looked so choppy and horrible. So every 2 weeks, I'd go for a trim on the length - and leave the layers alone... but keep trimming the angles - now about 4-5 months later, my hair is all one length but with angles... I'd say to keep the back all one length - but keep the angles around your face... so that way you can either flip em' out - or curl them under... and they way you part your hair, flip it to the side, or style it... can make it look like a nice fresh look - but with the ease of "one length hair"... plus if your a hair 'flipper' like I tend to do every so often... if the hair is going back away from your face, the shorter hair from the angles will make the hair on the back of your head look layered...

here is my question:
would like to ask You all if You could recommend me a hairfriendly stylingproduct/treatment. I have black shoulderlength hair which is wavy mostly the day after I shower (after I shower its curls and frizz!) But the thing is that I have flyaways and some frizz..irritating! it makes my hair loos its texture. What product can I use...? My hair is dry. Now I use L´oreal Intesive repair schampoo and masque. And once/twice a week I use Kerastase Age Recharge

Firming gel-masque ( the personal in the salon recommended it, after using it my hair feelt little smoother healthier and thicker! but there are still flyaways), My flyaways are so thin...and i do have a lot of hair...and then I tried to use spraybalm, but it makes my hair to soooft and the flyaways get worser. I`ve used Outshine From Redken but it doesnt hold to much during the day. Now i try Bead Head mastermind, but it doesnt hold up!. I also dont like the smell, to strong. Im really trying to save for long here and would like styling products that doesnt "kill" my hair. I dont like strong chemicall products...I´ve used Redken Fresh curls and Clean moister, but I find them to strong and smells like chemicall...they were just to much for me. I really hope You can help me out, because this problem makes me feel bad inside sometimes...I´ve really tried a lot of brands, only salonbrands and even after recommendation from hairdresser it doesnt always seem to work for me. You gajs are my last hope! (sorry for the long thread but I have trouble writing in english...just want u to really understand what im asking for...) Thank You! hope to hear from U soon

It was ok where it was... sometimes people dont' check this because it's just kinda an intro thread... but - no prob!
Actually the really only 'easy' way to tame flyaways is to spray some hairspray on your brush & comb them down. You can also try a frizz serum or something by SexyHairConcepts their Straightsexyhair products work well - they have a straightening balm that helps calm frizz & flyaways that I use. Being flyaways are more likely than not broken hairs, it's kinda something that you either have to spray down, coat, or just bear with until they grow a little. I have a bunch like 3" long that stick up right at my forehead. Usually I'll just use the spray/brush technique or rub a little lotion or pomade on them to smooth them out.

OMG! I am so excited about this part of the forum. Anyway, here's my deal:

I dyed my hair all black last year, about 3 months ago I attempted to strip the color using a color remover called Effasol made my L'Oreal. It didn't work as well as I thought it was going to, so I did it AGAIN, my hair lightened a little bit, but not like I wanted.

I went to my local beauty college and the girls there used 40v bleach on my hair on a big chunk on the underside of my hair and weaved strands on top of my head and in the bangs area. Yeah, my hair fried a lot and fell out a bit where it was bleached, but I was warned and kinda knew that was going to happen.

So, ,I dyed it blue with a temp dye made by Special Effects and it didn't take, so I tried again, still didn't penetrate the bleached areas very good. I also used Clean Canvas shampoo before I dyed it to make sure it was ready, did not use conditioner. The blue faded a lot, so I bought a very bright magenta pink dye, very liquid vegetable dye made by Manic Panic. This stuff is scary. Everything I touch turns pink because the dye won't wash out good. When I scratch my head, my fingers turn pink. It's been about two weeks since I dyed it and I use Pureology shampoo (Hydrating) and a leave-in conditioner made by Botanical Nutrients. I also use John Frieda's Spotlight, which is a thick serum that makes my hair really soft.

My problem is this.. my hair seems to have a film built up on it, not sure if it's the dye or the conditioner. I don't know what to do, it's so heavy and seems to get dirty fast. Should I try the clairifying shampoo Clean Canvas on it? Someone told me after I dye with Manic Panic to do a vinegar rinse on it to lock in the color better. Geez.. I just washed my hair and it looks dirty again already!

please help me out NYANGEL So sorry Miranhat!!! I didn't see your post, as I only get email notifications from the hair forum... and this thread is more of a "notice' - but I'm sorry I missed it!!! If you post your questions in the Hair Talk forum, I'll be sure to get them asap

As far as the Hair Energizer you posted... it seems ok - it seems to have a lot of decongesting ingredients ... which is good if your pores & follicles are clogged up from product build-up and residue (which can lead to thinning hair or hair loss - along with something known as DHT) As far as your hair being oily... I really like 3 clarifying shampoos best out of I'll I've tried....

1. Paul Mitchell "Three" shampoo

2. John Freida "Cool Dip" shampoo

& 3. Prell shampoo (the original green one)

These are great clarifiers to get rid of all the gunk.... I wouldn't use these everyday... but at least 2x a week. On the other days, I would use a gentle shampoo & conditioner that isn't very thick or creamy. A lot of creamy ones have a waxy by-product that coats the hair and can leave it dirty looking and limp. Definitly not the greatest thing for oily hair. Check out "BIGSEXYHAIR" shampoo & conditioner by Sexy Hair concepts... they should give you nice volume without weighing hair down.
