    Hi I am going travelling in Jan 2011 to South East Asia for 4 months and then to Australia for hopefully a year.

    This may sound pathetic but, i have no idea what to do with my hair for the 4 months in Asia. I currently relax it but this isnt going to be an option there.

    I have tried googling what to do with my hair for that long but couldnt find any responses.

    I think ill end up plaiting it, but if anyone has any tips on how to make the plaits last for 4 months id be really grateful?

    Thanksxx

    Just realised i put this in the complete wrong thread - sorry x

    OP just get a nice shape up..tbh i dont think anyone will really care about your forehead.

    And black guys who straighten their hair...well thats just a sign of a loser! sorry to say
    but i'm being serious. the last time I had short hair, people dissed me hard and it was the worst year of my life. I really was depressed and life was on the low for me.

    saying that, that was in year 9 and when I do want to change my hair it's going to be for uni...

    don't get your panties in a twist..... not saying that black people shouldn't straighten hair/wear weaves... I know this is a "touchy" subject for some black people..
    I dont understand why it should be. if there really is to be black equality in the world then I think that black people should do whatever they want to do. I didnt laugh or think it was wrong when white people got dreadlocks. I think it's subjective, it suits some people and it doesnt suit others.

    agree. apparently touchy issue amongst some black people (esp women)... chris rock made a documentary film about afro hair (not sure of the name) and it explores these issues (mainly around women and the weave and the whole cultural identity of their natural hair).....

    you can! maybe im being biased for saying he has the best hair because he is just gorgeous! i read in a magazine once, if i can remember correctly, he uses some smoothing cream to calm his afro down and then straightens his hair, and then uses loreal studio gel to style it..what a saddo i am for remembering that! lol

    and whoever says boys straightening their hair are gay, ...get with it, we're in the 21st century!

    Would you say there is a difference though between a black person such as I to straighten my hair as opposed to an Asian person (I presume) such as your self to cover their hair in gel, which is typically a western style. :holmes:



    BTW: I do not straighten my hair, I was merely posing a question.
    Sorry, missed this quote (it didn't come up on my list).

    Assumptive. Also, I think those rudeboy Asians with gelled hair look silly as well, same applies with white guys who use hair straighteners (used to be common in my school). TBH any male who goes to that much effort on his hair is a loser tbh.

    There was a time when women would have thought the same, but then some women started doing it and then an arms (hair) race ensued until it became socially unacceptable not to do these things. Eventually, I predict the same will happen to men, especially as big corporations will make billions of pounds from it and will push the agenda through advertising campaigns. The female market is already saturated tbh, I don't think there's many more ways that a woman can spend money to further her attractiveness.

    Yes I have seen these things however one must agree that they hardly have an effect. People who tend to look young when they are old is mostly due to genetics. Or some botox or drug of another. These creams do not really do much but reduce wrinkles and lines and perhaps help skin. Not really anti-ageing. :erm:

    It doesn't matter if it paralyses your skin or doesn't do anything for your health so long as it doesn't make you look like you're becoming older and less attractive :borat:
