I'm losing my hair due to an auto immune disease and since nothing is working I've decided I want to try to keep the hair I have healthy. that means stepping away from the blow dryer/flat iron (not because if fries my hair, because extra brushing makes me lose hair). I have long wavy hair and I have been looking for a product that I can put in my hair to make it not look crazy ... just shiny and soft, not crunchy or greasy. I have found one gel/cream that helps me keep my hair curly but the next day it's a mess of tangles and I end up pulling out more hair with the brush than if I had just blow dried it. I remember asking my hairdresser ages ago for a product like this when I was overworked and underpaid and low on time and she just looked at me like I was crazy and said there wasn't anything. ush: there has to be SOMETHING! this is me blow dried something to that effect would be nice but at this point I don't care what it does (curly, straight, wavy) as long as it keeps my hair shiny, soft, tangle free and semi presentable. I know a cut would probably help but I'm holding off until march so I can go home and see my regular stylist and get a cut. both of the hairdressers I've seen since I've moved I haven't been happy with, so I'd rather not waste the money. even a trim ended up bad! so is there anyone else out there that isn't a slave to their hair dryer/curling iron/flat iron?
