hair trouble

okay girls, I seriously feel retarded lol The ONLY time I ever like my hair is when I get it trimmed and my stylist blows out my hair and uses that round brush on it. Well, I bought a round brush, and I'm doing everything she does, but it's NOT WORKING!!! lol, My layers are NOT defined, I DONT have movement, and it's a bit frizzy. On saturday, I had model hair, now I look like gene simmons, but with longer hair lo. What is wrong with me?!

first of all...


did you use the same product in ur hair as the stylist ?  like hair spray or styleing gel or a shinner?


Next, when you blow dry, you have to make sure you blow dry in SMALL chunks...don't put too much on the brush. 


Start blow drying at the top of your head to get some volume then with the round brush, make sure its twirling often so you don't burn ur hair


when ur done, if you want definition on ur ends, u may need a little bit of hair wax to separate the ends and give them definition


hope that helps!

I think it just takes a lot of time to get used to blowing your own hair. I can do someone elses really easily, but I cannot blow dry my hair as well.

I have lots of trouble using the round brush and hair dryer too... plus, I really don't want to spend all that time on it. So I bought one of those hot air brushes... it's kind of a hair dryer and round brush in one. It is $16.99 at Fry's. This is what it looks like:


I have lots of photo 56350-1


It works incredibly well. And I've been using it for years... even when my hair was long (mid-back length). My hair is very straight, but it'll still get frizzy when I blow dry it. And I have to use the round brush technique, otherwise my layers will look like crap. I use a spray-on leave-in conditioner that keeps the frizzies away. Even if you don't think you have dry hair, a leave-in conditioner can do wonders! The hair near my scalp can get pretty oily, but my ends dry out very easily. So I spray on conditioner after a shower and give the ends a touch-up later in the day.


My stylist told me that using an ionic hair dryer will really help keep your hair from getting frizzy too.

thats tru the one i have has an ion button and the science behind that is that your hair has pos. charges and the ion has negative so it will keep fly aways and frizz away or something like that!
