Currently: Relatively thin and flat when straightened. Thicker but frizzy and wavy (not in the nice way) when unstraightened. Mid length (About an inch past my shoulders) Side fringe (which since my friend decided to blow dry and straighten my hair as straight as possible a couple of weeks ago lies pretty flat on my forehead. Before she did this, I was going through a nice period of not having straighten my fringe or anything because it was sat just right on my forehead curling just the right amount. Since she straightened it I cannot get it to fall like this, and it just goes straight down even when natural) and a center parting (in a somewhat failed attempt to make my hair look more even on both sides). My hair is soft, though I suffer with static and frizziness.
I am trying to grow my hair longer at the moment. I had it shoulder length, but I now want it back to around chest length.
Completely natural (before straightening on a near everyday basis and before I got it cut shorter with layers): Very wavy and frizzy. Very thick. As here (about 7 years old):
My hair seems to be getting thinner over time. When I first got it cut, my ears were not noticeable behind my hair, now my ears often poke out. It looks greasy quicker now. I once washed and straightened, and noticed it looked like it could be a little greasy :/
After I got it cut, before I got a side fringe (Also the length I am currently aiming for):
At prom, a couple of months or so after I got the side fringe.
Photo taken last September, still with a side parting.
The advice I am seeking:
1. I want to have thicker hair again, and I don't know what the best way is to get some volume back. I am currently leaning towards having it curled (like a prom, which was actually a combo of straightened parts and curled parts), but I don't know what the best way to curl my hair would be, since it is kind of thin at the moment. Anyone recommend anything? If its curlers, ideally, since I'm testing it out, they wouldn't be much more than £10, definately no more than £20. Theres always time to get better ones later on. Like these for example: http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Produc...7C23719045.htm
2. Any tips for reducing the static I have so much trouble with? Do you think maybe a change of style would help? I've tried some sprays and serums and these just make my hair look greasy. I usually try and use a little hairspray which does help to an extent.
3. I'm tired of the massive gap my side fringe leaves, and I'm thinking of getting a full fringe again. Thoughts?
I don't usually have much time to spend on my hair every day, so ideally suggestions for my hair will be relatively low maintenance. (I.e. I don't have to get an hour earlier every day to do my hair).
