I feel like my hair has really impacted my life, and this sounds dramatic I know. It’s just, my hair is like wavy/straight, and sort of thin, that it doesn’t fall well when not heat styled. When I blow it out, it only looks good for 1.5 days before it gets oily. I see girls that either have naturally straight/bouncy curly hair or ones that don’t have to wash their hair for 4-5 days and I think, wow that would save me SO much time. I just feel utterly not confident in my natural hair and I notife

Can you look into clip ins/extensions? They might help you feel more confident about your hair. Best wishes!!

Why don’t you get your hair professionally done. And get feedback from your stylist on how to manage your hair naturally.

Have you tried “training” your hair to not get oily as fast? I used to wash daily but i am down to every 3 days now.. it depends how I style it and how frequently I touch it as well ha

Use a good bit of quality hairspray. When my stylist does mine it lasts for 5 days plus depending what I do that week. I can never get those results but I don’t use product at home…until now!!

Hey, girl. I FEEL you. You are me. I have this exact same problem with very thin (not alopecia or pattern hair loss, just thin and fine) and frizzy hair.

Here’s the thing: no one notices or is as critical of your hair as much as you are. And that hair envy you have? Those girls are probably just as self conscious about other things.

When I want a little boost I wear my clip in extensions. I even have clip in ponytails and a clip in bun. I highly recommend Luxy and Barefoot Blonde. I really like the barefoot blonde fill ins for some light volume that looks really subtle. You can style the extensions and they’ll hold the curl for days without getting greasy.

I’m also debating getting some tape in or bonded extensions but can’t bring myself to spend the $$$ on that yet.

Hang in there! Sending hugs!

notice* at the office, if it’s natural, I don’t get looked at the same and feel so self conscious. It just feels like overwhelming to have to style it all the time just to be taken seriously or feel confident! I think this has affected me all my life 😵

My hair is similar to yours from the description. It looks best when straightened and if not straightened the waves need to be styled. I recently got Japanese hair straightening done. The best $$ I spent. It's straight now without any maintenance and is natural looking. So most days I just brush my hair bad I'm good. Japanese hair straightening or some type of keratin treatment may be worth looking into.

I’ve thought about doing this! Did you find your hair fell out from it though? Being that my hair is thin, I wonder if this treatment would be too harsh.
