    I have really thick, poofy and dense hair...and i hate it :mad: I found this picture online which resembles the poofiness issue i have. What i want is smooth, silky, shiny, flat hair and not a big poofy mess I use Aussie moisturizing shampoo & conditioner but i'm going to get Redken All Soft when i run out of the aussie stuff because i've used it before and i think they worked better on my hair.. I know that using a flat iron helps but to be honest i don't have that much time to spend on my hair each morning (it takes ages to straighten it because there's so much hair) plus it isn't too good for the hair in the long run. So, any others with the same issue who've found a solution? Please share any product recommendations etc

    EDIT: i hope the pic works now as i attached it..?

    link doesn't work for me however my general advice would be use a leave in serum or get your hair thinned out.

    I used to use John Frieda Frizz Ease hair serum which worked wonders as long as you didn't use too much near the roots.

    eww that is exactly how my hair is... it's already been thinned out but it doesn't change the actual texture of my hair.
    Can't give you much advice though but still subscribing to see what others say

    If I were you I would get your hair thinned next time you go to get it cut. It feels a lot less poofy and takes less time to straighten. I find that sometimes my hair gets too poofy when it's really soft so if I've used to much product on it or put in too much conditioner in.
