I have to respond first to Lorryann.  I feel your pain honey.  I too just cut most of my already short hair off into what was supposed to be a short, sexy, spikey cut.  It was all that when I left the salon but what a mess the next day!  I went back three times and even went to a new stylist and after a month and a new cut I like it a little better.  I got a lot of wonderful advise from the short hair board folks but I think I may have to grow this mess back out.  I hate being dependent on so many products and my hair feels like straw.  And windy, humid days (of which there are a lot where I live) send me into a panic.  I hate the thought of the blunt bob but it sure was easy.

Now Goddess, you surely do have a marvelous attitude.  I was thinking of growing out all my color too.  It is so expensive and time consuming to maintain.  And with hair this short why not?  My husband has never done a darn thing to his hair and he looks great.  Why not me?  I don't know that I'll have the courage though.  I am always searching for the perfect style--easy to maintain and fabulous looking.  I think most of us with fine hair, especially if it is very thin, were taught early on that our hair was lacking somehow.  I remember mine being referred to in hushed tones by various relatives as "pitiful."  So no matter what has happened in the 45 years since, I still feel like I have pitiful hair.  I think you are right though.  Most of us probably look much better than we think we do.  If you spend this much time worrying about your hair you are probably caring for it pretty well.

Welcome to the boards.  We are happy to have you here.  This is a really wonderful community.

OMG I have the worse fine hair I have ever seen.  Its so straight and fine and sparse.  I have so much breakage that their are little hairs sticking out all over the place.  It has never been longer than my shoulders.  Right now their are a few hairs that are almost to my shoulders. 

I don't color it, perm it, or style it.  I try to be as gentle as possible, eat well and take my vitamins, but noooooooo its still as ugly as ever.

Did I mention to top it off I have a big swirly cowlick on top of my head in the back, it makes it look like I have a big bald spot AND instead of growing outward in the back the shafts point down what little hair I have their lays flat to my head.  Sooooo pretty.

I also detest my fine hair it breaks &  becomes dry for no reason I treat it like gold & it re-pays me by being terrible, I have a cowlick on my rightside in the front that causes a long fringe to go haywire.

Colouring is a nightmare my re-growth never goes light enough unless I use a little bleach even as I am a natural level 6 & if colour overlaps the hair breaks.

My hair is sort of ok on the 2nd day after a wash but on the day of washing it's a miserable frizz ball.

On the upside in Summer it grows like crazy.

My hair aggravates me so much, sometimes I just want to rip it out!! It's incredibly fine, and is really easily messed up. It gets tangled when the wind blows it, and when I try to style it using a blow dryer only half of the hair stays on the brush and the rest goes flying in all directions, which of course makes me mad!! My hair has always been difficult to style, but the one thing that will work for me is styling from wet-to-dry. I don't even use styling products because they weigh my hair down so that it is limp and even harder to style than before. Then again, I get aggravated at it because most of it gets dry before I have the chance to style it, so then I have to get it wet again!

I appreciate it every now and then, though...sometimes I look in the mirror and I'm like "Wow, my hair looks really good!", but of course, the next time I wash and style it I'll be cursing it because it wants to do its own thing! It's a vicious love-hate cycle...

Quote Someone tell me, if you're in the shower, and gather hair to one side like
a low side ponytail, hold it with one hand and slide your closed hand over
it, if some hairs come out? Just one or two a day. I don't brush as often
as I used to so I am hoping it is just the leftover hair that used to end up
in my brush. People supposedly lose up to 100 a day, and I've only
counted losing about seven or eight that end up in my hands when
styling.

Is this normal? I can totally freak myself out for no reason sometimes.
*sigh*. Fine hair AND a hypochondriac. Fantastic.

I don't know if you're still looking for an answer ... I see nobody replied ... I am pretty sure this is NORMAL! It happens to me too and it sure seems like a whole lot more than seven or eight! I'm the same as you -- fine hair and hypo! Ha, ha! At least you're not alone!

My hair is very fine and thin although i do have a lot of it.  i had it to the middle of my back but it looked stringy and wouldn't style for anything so i completely chopped it off.  Now it looks even worse.  i'm trying to grow it out but, of course, it's taking forever.  I've heard that taking certain vitamins helps hair grow faster.  Has anyone tried that?  Does it really work?  I look like a guy.  It's awful!!

[QUOTE=eashworth] Lately, I've become more frustrated with my hair.  It
is thick, but very fine and long.  I can't do much with it.  I have no idea
what style would work for my type of hair, so I don't style it.  I just wash it
and let it hang!  I'm bored with it and nothing seems to work.  It won't
even hold when I tried to clip it up like I see a lot of girls doing.  [/

Jonathan Antin says that's the best kind of hair because you *can* do
stuff with it. But believe me, I feel your pain. My hair isn't quite thick per
se, but there is a lot of it even though my individual strands are very fine.

Has anyone ever tried Thicker Fuller Hair product? I've been using the
shampoo for a while now but ever since, I have been feeling like I've been
shedding more. There is a guy on my swim team with alopacia and it
scares me to death that I could ever lose it all... I try to be nice to it even
though I dye it red all over every few months because the color fades.

I also don't like my hair. I want to grow it out long, but it just won't work out. The longer it gets, the more it becomes thicker, wavy, and cury. It just wouldn't grow downward.

I am really surprised at the amount of people who hate their hair. I absolutely love mine (mostly)

I decided long ago to quite fighting my hair, so started wearing it long and sleek, fine hair is truly in a class by itself. Mine has always been silky soft and shiny. People die for this look and it comes naturally.

I do have a couple of cowlicks that I have to deal with everyday, I simply rewet them and blow dry them where I want them. Works for me.

My only problem now is wanting a little body as I am getting older it is getting thinner, but I am looking into rollers.

I have just started to appreciate my hair after all these years. (I'm 19)

When I was younger, I had straight hair that was thick, yet baby fine textured. I hated it so much. I wanted curly or even wavy hair really badly. I thought my hair was so boring. I would wear it in braids a lot so when I took it down, it would be wavy.

Then I hit puberty and my hair became very wavy , even thicker than it was, and a frizzy mess. I would straighten it and completely regretted ever wishing for curly hair.

Finally, I got sick of dealing with straightening my extremely thick hair so I had it chopped off. My hairstylist cut it in layers, and told me to put some gel in and blow dry with a diffuser to make it curlier.

I love it now. It's so much easier to deal with. I have come to love my waves and curls.

DANGER! I drive like you do.

I don't want to cut my fine hair short. I LOVE long curly hair styles and is actually planning to perm it. I think a perm will add some volume to my hair, but I'm worried that my ends will go all messy after being curly....

I absolutely HATE my hair. In summer, my hair is a combination of oily roots and flyaway ends, and it frizzes like mad. They almost floats aimlessly around my head, in all different dirrections. Ok, then i used shampoos which smoothens hair and tames frizz, they did what they promised, however, they weigh my baby fine hair down. My hair just sticks flat to my head and looks limp. I have thought about using a volumizing shampoo but I'm afraid that it doesn't control my frizz. Not to mention that my hair is extra thin...and it is actually THINNING. 30 strands fall out a time i comb through my hair, and I've a really bad scalp. In summer it is oily and itchy, in winter, it is dry but still itchy. I've spend tons of money trying out different hair care products, but none of them really helps, some even make the situation worse.

 

Simply saying, my hair is fine thin and limp thinning frizzy flyaway hair with oily scalp coated with dandruff. Also...just forgot to mention that my hair grows sooooooooo slowwwwwwwwwwlyyyyyyy.

Six months ago I had my haircut, there isn't any great difference in the length of my hair now...wtf...

What can I do?!?!?!

yeah, the thought of taking medicine (which truely hasn't been around long enough to know the long-term effects of) scares me.  I have tried a topical solution from the Health Food Store but alas, no difference.

My hair dresser bought me some shampoo & conditioner (Nioxin) which she said worked on her balding boyfriend.  I have been noticing it for a few months and didn't notice a difference.  However, she said the way to check is to go up close to the mirror, part your hair anywhere and you'll see a bunch of hairs that are only an inch or two long (depending how long you've been using it).  I did see a bunch of new growth so was pretty excited.  But is this new growth always there or is it a direct result of this product?

I used Rogaine (or a generic of, anyway) for eight months, by my hair only got thinner while using it :-( .  So either my problem isn't genetic thinning, or I'm one of the people it just doesn't work for :-( .  Although I have heard that you really have to use the 5% minoxidil if you want it to do anything. . . and they only market that towards the men :-P . . .  I've wondered if it would hurt anything if I used the men's extra-strength, but I've been reluctant to try, after the women's kind did nothing to help.

More awesome than a manatee!

I am taking the capsules now.  I have been taking them for six weeks.  I don't see any difference so far.
