    I had dream last night that I woke up and my hair had grown quite long and I was combing it to make it less frizzy and more straight and it just looked really pretty. And then I woke up and looked in the mirror with my short/medium frizzy curly hair :sad: I really want long straight hair... or just long hair at least :/ I wish I had not cut it... which was months ago.

    Grow it then. Just get a very short trim every 6-12 months.

    Grow it out, only cut the split ends off when necessary. You should get maximum growth in a reasonably short amount of time :yy:

    How was it too much effort? Tbh when my hair was shoulder length I found it a lot more effort. It was too short to do anything fun with, it was super frizzy so I had to straighten it all the time, so I also had to wash it a lot more. Now it's butt length, I wash it 2/3 times a week max and just leave it natural. So much easier. Depends on what kind of hair you have I suppose though :dontknow:

    Just be patient and grow it. Make your mind up as well.

    My hair is really wavy and frizzy and it gets into loads of knots super easily. And when I cut it, I just had to brush it and leave it out or something and it was fine. But when its long I have to spend WAY more time making it look nice and not so frizzy and adding oil etc but it looks nicer....

    Then you are going to waste a lot of your life wnating one thing and then changing your mind and going in the opposite direction. get a wig or extensions of you cant wait.

    Think carefully before you cut it short again.

    :lolwut: I never believe it when people say they have their parents cut their hair for them. I go to the Christian barber down the street every six or so weeks and get a nice little Christian boy haircut for £5. :angel:

    That's my life tbh :sad: I've changed career paths like 10 times and don't even get me started on relationships.

    I don't think I'm going to cut it for a while. Hmm extensions would be a good idea but for me it feels fake and therefore I can't be confident with it.

    My hair used to be like this, still is now but I make sure it isn't too long or too short, what sort of shampoos do you use and what do you use to condition? I found using special shampoos got rid of my frizz or calmed it at least whilst retaining volume. Get it trimmed and see how long it gets before deciding on a length you can manage it. I find my hair is unmanageable when it's short as it curls up and gets more frizzy.

    I just normal shampoos and conditioners which probably isnt a good idea in itself... what kind of special shampoos do you use?
