I DID IT!!! I CUT IT!!! And I'm loving it being short but I now want to go a bt shorter, my hairdresser wanted to cut it in like an inverted bob but I was too scared and now I wish she did
Is it too soon to go back and ask her to cut it in???? It's still hot on my neck to wear it out but I don't want her to think I'm rude ???? I've read everyone's comments and you have all suggested great things for curly hair. Will come back and do a reply in a sec.
Here's the link to my new do.http://s159.beta.photobucket.com/user/just...904274995609319
I have had my hair long since 2008. It's thick and curly and afro but I straighten daily with my GHD. I'm getting a bit tired of the straightening and how long it takes but I'm worried I'll regret cutting shorter. I always had short bob style hair until 2008 so this is the longest time I have had long hair.
But I also feel ready for a change too.
So wdyt? Here is a pic of it short in 2005 [I look a lot different now lol]http://s159.beta.photobucket.com/user/just...?sort=3&o=1
And here with long hairhttp://s159.beta.photobucket.com/user/just...971644186762179
This is the style I'm thinking ofhttp://s159.beta.photobucket.com/user/just...?sort=3&o=0

Hmmm, I prefer the shorter hair
Posted 03 January 2013 - 08:38 AM
I think somewhere in the middle, not quite as short as it was, but not as long as it is now. I'm not much help

Have you thought about having a keratin straightening treatment?
I am no expert but have heard good (and the odd bad) thing about them.
It means you can wear your hair as it is without having to straighten it all the time but you do have to have it done every few months and it aint cheap!

Long much nicer
Posted 03 January 2013 - 08:39 AM
I think you would really suit a choppy bob.

I agree. I like your hair shorter but maybe cut just above your shoulders?
Posted 03 January 2013 - 08:43 AM
Definitely long! Makes you looks much much younger!!
Posted 03 January 2013 - 08:45 AM
I think somewhere in the middle as well

I haven't tried the keratin straightening but years ago had it permanently straightened. It worked ok but I still had to straighten with the straightener of a morning lol. I guess I could give it a go if someone did it locally
Straighetning takes me almost half an hour at my length which is exhausting before work and getting the kids organised
I have to add that first pic of my was after apretty bad pregnancy with DD so I looked like crap lol

Love you with short hair, and I think the style you've picked will suit you really well.
Posted 03 January 2013 - 09:19 AM
I like it longer I think it makes you look a little younger although you have a young face already.
I have my long thick hair keratin straightened and love it. I blow dry my hair (to my knicker line length) in 10 minutes it dries so much faster and it looks as though I have used my GHD but I haven't needed to. Onlly use the straightener now for special evenings out or on Christmas day here in Cairns high humidity etc wanted it to stay dead straight against the heat all day.
I haven't regretted the choice to start using keratin at all in fact I love my hair again, I wear it out all the time rather then the easy pony tail or bun style.

I think u look younger in the pic with long hair, however the short does look nice too.
Im also contemplating a cut. I went very short last time and everyone loved it, except my partner. He prefers long hair. Im just finding my long hair annoying now. Wear it in a ponytail most days, so whats the point!
The pic of the style u like is very nice. Go for it! It grows back
Posted 03 January 2013 - 09:33 AM
Thank u everyone
The Keratin sounds like it'd work well in my hair. I'm going to see if anyone does it locally
I think majority on here says cut....... MMMMM am I game enough ? I know it'll grow back but I worry that I'll regret it and it'll take along time but then I'm over having so much hair too lol
Posted 03 January 2013 - 09:41 AM
I think long hair suits you better but I think the style you're thinking of would be fine too, especially if it saves time.
I also have thick curly hair and I wear it curly. I am always curious about why curlies choose to straighten their hair. Don't you like it curly?
Posted 03 January 2013 - 10:03 AM
I like curly hair but hate mine. I've put a pic of mine curly with lots of product in it to try and contain it but it's just yuk
It's a back view ....http://s159.beta.photobucket.com/user/just...?sort=3&o=3
Posted 03 January 2013 - 10:15 AM
Definitaly long - it does make you look younger.
Posted 03 January 2013 - 10:33 AM
I think you should embrace your curls. And save the straightning for every now and then etc.
Lots of products aren't the best for curly hair you need to keep it basic and use a good shampoo and conditioner. put in a mosituriser after washing then you leave it alone.
I think this is a nice curly hair look that would suit you. and i think some wamer highlights would look nice too.http://www.boxno216.com/2012/06/beautiful-...eachy-hair.html
Posted 03 January 2013 - 10:38 AM
I think long suits you a bit better.
Posted 03 January 2013 - 10:40 AM
I love her hair. The product I put in mine was wash with a dandruff shampoo [My scalp is always yuk so have to use it] then a moisturising conditioner. I then put in some moroccan oil, John frieda frizz controller and some juice curling stuff. And it turns out like above pic I posted. So frizzy. The link u posted, her hair seems so nice and conditioned. Maybe I'm not looking after mine enough?
Posted 03 January 2013 - 10:43 AM
i reckon keep it long, definatly better, and definatly embrace your curls and keep the straightening for when you can be assed. You should get some morrocan oil, best thing ever! It will smooth and define your curls, add shine, a lovely smell and make your hair softer. best stuff ever!!!!!!! I would love it if my hair was that curly!
eta ok just saw you do use morrocan oil already...mmm...well i like it long and curly but if you dont then id reccomend the keretin sounds like a good idea

Shorter. I think you look aged with longer hair.
Posted 04 January 2013 - 11:57 AM
Do it!!! I think you'd look fantastic with a style cut like the bottom pic you linked.
Can you come back with before and after pics, pretty please????
I'm still building up the courage to chop my frizzy, curly bra-strap length hair to about shoulder length but am thinking I might get the Keratin treatment again before I do. LOVED it last time, but is is pretty pricey!
Are you in Sydney? Just received one of those deals for a Keratin relaxing treatment for $79, but no use to you if you're not in Sydney.

I agree you look younger with long hair, however your hair looks a bit lifeless and stringy when it is long. The short style also suits you and makes your hair look fuller-bodied.
Would highly recommend a keratin treatment - it won't straighten your hair but it will remove the frizz so you can wear it naturally wavy and it will look really healthy and shiny. If you want to wear it straight you still can, it will take a fraction of the time to straighten with a GHD, so your hair is also exposed to less heat over time, improving the condition further.
Posted 04 January 2013 - 04:42 PM
The long hair definitely makes you look younger! But I really like the style you posted and think it would look great on you, as its kinda I'm-between the shorter "bob" ish style and the longer style which can sometimes get a bit straggly (I know because I've got the straightened long hair problem, too!)

"Hey, come here a second," my mum said as she replaced the book in my hands with a wooden spoon covered in what I prayed was red sauce. Together, we walked into the kitchen and hovered over the skillet like we were peering into a crystal ball. Looking into my future, I saw me eating a lot of take away.
