really? I usually have problems on my dominant side. The pushing motion gets a smoother better shaped line than the pulling motion for me. pencil eyeliner is used more for just one smooth, flat line above your eye- not too precise and crisp, the product is softer because of that so it dulls quick, obviously.
are you trying to do winged eyeliner? liquid eyeliner is really better for that if so."

you need a chemical exfoliant that stays on your skin longer than a cleanser. I use Peter Thomas Roth peel pads. they're a bit pricey but they'll last you quite a while if you follow the instructions."

This is why I use pen eyeliner. For some reason it's much easier for me to get the wings symmetrical than a pencil eyeliner. I use pencil eyeliners when I want a softer look, and I use a blunt one specifically to give that smudged out appearance. I like Nyx for those, and I use a copper one with my lolita looks. For pen eyeliners there was a majolica majorca one I loved, but since then had been using a dolly wink one which isn't bad but has a tendency to flake out."

You should only introduce one new product into your routine at a time so that if you have any adverse reactions, you can pinpoint the product.

It's a good start. Also, good on you for starting with creams and spf before cleanser, because the other way around would be hell to fix. The next step would be incorporating some of the steps at night. You'd want a good cleanser as well - start with a foaming cleanser first and then if it doesn't break you out after several days then you can introduce an oil cleanser. R/asianbeauty has a lot of recommendations for what is best for your skin type. From there you can get addicted to it and start having a ridiculous 8 step routine like the rest of us."

Whoops, I guess I went a little crazy to start! Nice to know I'm on the right track though. I have pretty resilient skin and so far I haven't broken out or anything so I think I'll stick to this for now. For cleansers, I've used olive oil to remove makeup and cleanse for years (moisturiser when in a pinch), and my shower gel is a very gentle micellar water one with no parabens, sulfates, dyes, or scents. What cleansers would you recomend?"

I’m also using cheap oils, not sure if they are working or not? I use Tree of Life brand. Can anyone recommend good brands for serums that work but isn’t too pricey?"

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==9983863 && dateTime=="09/03/18(Mon)18:03:15")

In all honesty, it's hard to not use a couple of products when you're first building a routine. Just try to keep it in mind in the future so you don't have to wonder which product might be bothering you, you know?

For oil cleansers, I find The Face Shop's Rice Water Bright Light Cleansing Oil to be cheap, simple, and effective for removing sunscreen. I also like the Kose Softymo Speedy Cleansing Oil! They both come in pumps and are very easy to use, only requiring one pump to clear everything off.

For your second cleanser, most people use a gel or foaming cleanser. Cosrx's Low PH Good Morning Cleanser is a popular and affordable choice. It also doesn't require a PH balancing toner because of the PH of the product itself, so you don't have to worry about losing any effectiveness from your other products. I also recommend picking up a konjac sponge to use it with. I only need about half of a pea-sized amount to get lots of foam with a konjac sponge and this cleanser."

It really depends on how well your eyeshadow holds in general! An eyeshadow primer will make sure your eyeshadow goes on more pigmented in general too. Some people find foundation or moisturiser works just as well, but they're rare special unicorns and most people should use a primer. Basically if you find your eyeshadow fades or flakes off after a couple of hours then you might want to invest in a primer. Also eyeshadow primer can double as concealer. It's pretty different to general silicone based makeup primer like the Smashbox ones."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==9984218 && dateTime=="09/04/18(Tue)01:15:00")

you can, but it's easy to get things too hot in the microwave. let it set a minute or two after taking it out, and check the temp before putting it on your skin or it'll be like napalm. personally I'm a bit paranoid about burning myself, so if I were doing it I'd probably heat a container of water and set a container of wax inside/on top of it like a double boiler. easier to control the temp that way."

What sort of shade range are you in? Etude House and Missha do both cool and warm toned BB creams, if you want a Korean brand. I am about an NC25-30 in MAC shades, and currently use Laneige Pore Control BB cushion in 23/sand and Etude House Precious Minerals Matte 23/Tan (with their BB creams with the older shade names, I was W24/Honey Beige). Japanese BB creams tend a little on the more yellow side as well - Canmake oxidises quite orangey on some people but if you find that BB creams are often not warm-toned enough for you that may be a good option.

Yes if you do it slowly and stir it. There will be hot spots in the wax when you microwave it and usually the best thing to do is microwave it for a minute to start, mix, then 30 second increments with mixing until all liquid. Then wait for it to cool a little before you apply it, it will ALWAYS be hotter than you think when it's sat on your skin long enough to dry..."

sounds pretty good to me, nivea cream is a godsend and works wonders for my skin.

Also, you can layer it on thicker at night if you need to so that your skin doesn't look oily in the morning. You can also try the German kind, and the German soft brand.

You need to treat your scalp for sure.

Don't waste it on the strands of your hair.
If you apply it and just go about your evening for a few hours before you take your shower you should feel a difference by the next morning if not immediately after washing it out.

Long story short, I'm an idiot and I put a really dark blue hair dye that was apparently for brown hair on my bleached hair, and now I can't get it out.

Source: I have very hooded eyes and winged eyeliner isn't possible for me at all basically.
You just have to find what works for you
You can get scalp treatments prescribed by a doctor. Dandruff and dry scalp is very different, if you have a dry scalp then dandruff shampoo can make it worse.
Take some blood tests to see if you're lacking in some things, like iron of vitamin d. A lot of different things can affect your hair.

Different anon again, what if it’s naturally frizzy but not curly? My hair is quite straight but individual strands refuse to stick together, giving it a frizzy appearance. Hairdressers always assume it’s damaged and over-processed until they look up close and can’t find a single split end. I never use heat and have never bleached or dyed it. Every product I’ve tried just makes it look greasy or crunchy.

I know the best advice is to ask a hairdresser but hairdressers in my area are held to extremely low standards and most know very little about hair beyond cutting it into what’s currently trendy and shillings their salon’s overpriced brand products.

The only info I found that seemed relevant was meant for chemically damaged hair, but my hair is entirely virgin. I’ve never even owned heat tools. Not even a blow dryer.

Do you see how the makeup is done in >>9986905? You'll have to experiment with that shape if you want to play around with winged liner or shadows. Instead of using an upward angle, you'll pretty much be working horizontally. It sounds really weird, but it works. The main thing is to just avoid accidentally drooping the line or shadow downward. (Although, this look totally works for some people, just not me.)

One of the biggest things I can recommend is wrapping your hair to dry it. It's a pain in the ass, alleviated mostly by only washing every couple of days, but it works.

I basically do everything that you listed and was just air drying my hair - it felt AMAZING baby soft, but the top layer of hair would still frizz and not hold it's true curly texture. Because the top layers are the most exposed and dry out much too quickly.
Now I get out of the shower without ever touching my hair with a towel, spray some leave-in conditioner, run a bit of gel through it, run a wide toothed paddle brush through to spread everything and then immediately tie a silk scarf over the whole thing while it's still wet. Sleep in it.

>tl;dr, a lot of frizz is just caused by the hair drying too quickly and rapidly shrinking. Cover it so that it can dry slowly."

How much is your budget? My holy grail is Hada Labo Gokujyun Premium Hyaluronic Lotion for toner (though be careful to make sure your environment isn't dry since the moisture might be sucked out of your skin instead).

"My skin tends to be okay except for a few hormonal breakouts and some sebaceous filaments that I've had for going on a decade now. I have a few fine lines, dark circles, and of course just a general dullness that's been present since forever.

However, I notice that especially on my chin, jawline and cheeks, I have these weird hard pebble-like things in my pores. I'm almost positive they are closed comedones and not milia.

I've tried to use a BHA before (Stridex in the red box,) but it just made me breakout in gigantic cysts for 3 months before I finally ditched it.

I've wanted to try a few of their products, but I can't stand in the store long enough to buy anything. I get a headache from all the smells.

I tend to get hormonal acne around my period on my chin pretty often. My advice is first and foremost don't touch it. I'm sure you're smart enough to leave it alone but I always fuck up by trying to pop it and just end up with a huge scab.

My best methods for dealing with those is a warm compress (warm towel for about 5 minutes at a time.) Then, I like to crush a dye-free tablet of ibuprofen and mix it with water in the cap of a plastic water bottle. Apply the paste to your cyst overnight to reduce some of the inflammation. In the morning, I just use an acne spot treatment to keep it from getting worse.

Otherwise, I drink some spearmint tea to try to reduce my skin's oil production and just try to wait the cyst out. If it does eventually come to a head, the Cosrx Acne Pimple Patches are great for getting rid of it cleanly.

My advice would be to stop trying to strip your hair out. Blue's gonna stick there for a while, and short of bleaching it, you're not going to get rid of it before giving yourself a chemical cut. If you're trying to get to pink, I would put a semi-permanent violet (on the red side of violet) stain on your hair. When that fades, it will be extremely easy to get to pink because the remaining pigments will be much closer to the pink color you're looking for.

I haven't tried the other colors in the line, but benefit's cha-cha tint stays in place for me all day.

I'm not sure if this is the answer you're looking for, but regular exercise, drinking lots of water, avoiding drugs/alcohol/caffeine, a healthy diet, vitamins and less stress will do you a world of good no matter how old you are."

Collagen taken orally has no benefit except for making your poops better because the body will just break it down for other purposes.

Hand eczema is the worst. You are probably waaay undermoisturizing if you're only doing it twice per day, basically every time you wash your hands or they feel remotely dry you should be slathering them in moisturizing cream even when the eczema is not flaring, a minimum of 4 times per day. Whichever cream this is may vary depending on what you're sensitive to - one of my friends swears by sorbolene, I prefer steam cream (but some people are sensitive to the essential oils) but my dermatitis/eczema is related to frequent hand washing/sanitizer at work, so slightly different to purely allergic eczema. I probably apply some form of hand cream at least every hour at work.
Make sure you aren't contaminating the creams with your skin bugs e.g. touching the top of the tube/pump, dipping fingers into tubs as this can cause infections.
You can try bleach soaks twice a week with very dilute bleach, the ratio should be online and it's designed to cut down skin colonisation with bacteria which will hopefully reduce the risk of boils (make sure you look for the one for skin infections, not hair bleach baths with peroxide for lightening hair... ). I found it didn't really help me as my skin bugs were probably screwed up from frequent hand hygiene anyway, but if you are getting secondary infections like boils it may help you more.
I'd do the steroids again twice per day just to settle it down, but also moisturize at least 4-5 times a day and use (clean) moisturizing gel gloves overnight, over the top of whatever moisturizer you choose. I sometimes use vaseline at night to "seal in" my cream as well."

Thick hair anon here with weeb aesthetic
When I was younger I tried hard to get asian type bangs several times by different stylist, but when my hair got cut short it would stick out and settle weirdly (I think it’s the same physics of a straight wire bending weirdly after being cut) I do believe hair type makes it near impossible to get certain styles. I had to douse my bangs in oils and straight iron JUST my bangs 15 minutes everyday, not worth it.
To further prove my point, my friend with much thicker and wilder hair than me recently tried to get the see-through korean bangs many “aesthetic” idols use. Her bangs would just settle weirdly and look like a weird clump of short hair on her forehead, not cute at all, yes she flat ironed everyday too

"This is sort of a weird question and technically is about cosplay but it's about human hair pieces which are almost never worn for cosplay; basically: I'm white and have never worn any sort of hair extension before. For an upcoming cosplay, a character has a haircut that has parts that are too short to convincingly fake with a wig. My natural hair is already pretty short so cutting it a little more isn't a big deal. The top of his hair is longer than the rest and he has a widows peak which I don't have, so my plan was to wear a human hair full lace closure (pic related, it's basically a lace square normally used for finishing a weave), punch a widow's peak into it, bleach the knots so they're invisible, cut the hair to an appropriate length, and blend it with my actually hair, which would be dyed black. Any advice on how to make sure this looks convincing? I've already dug through a lot of black hair channels on YT and it looks like I can use something called weave molding gel to glue down the part of my natural hair I'm hiding (since my hair is too short to sew it in) and then use hair glue to hold the closure in place, and spirit gum to keep the lace on the front down.

>two become raised

Anon, you should go to a dermatologist to get checked for skin cancer. That's no joke.

ACV is okay to use in your routine, but the key is to dilute it. Putting ACV straight on to your skin without diluting it, and putting it under a bandaid so it can't breathe, is for sure a recipe for a chemical burn.

I use it only at night as a spot treatment for acne. I dilute ACV in a 1 to 3 ratio with water (three parts water to one part ACV.) Be sure to moisturize afterward, and don't put it on any sensitive areas of your skin or any already damaged parts.

Don't beat yourself up for being stupid, I've done worse stuff to my skin trying to figure out how the heck to use certain products. Not everyone can use ACV because their skin is too sensitive, and that's okay. Try to introduce new products into your routine more gradually, and look out for your own safety.

108 at 5'6" is quite thin anon. I don't mean to rag on you about it since you already seem very concerned. I'm sure you don't look haggard, but you may be looking a bit wan from your weight loss, especially if it was rapid.

Focus on eating nutritionally dense foods and nurturing your body. If it will make you feel better about yourself, there's no problem with gaining a few pounds. I'm positive your face looks fine and you are probably worrying too much. Take care of yourself, anon."

If you want very thin lines either get a liquid waterproof eyeliner with a brush tip or keep your pencil extremely sharp.
Pencils are only really great for undereye waterlining or for when you want a more smoky- smudged look.
If you say you want “subtle” eyeliner I’m guessing a liquid might be a lot more helpful for that, that or get a pencil with a much finer tip like the ones you roll up like an eyebrow sword pencil type as they’ve usually got smaller tips than the average wood eyeliner pencil.
Also with liquid liner, run it along your lashes too to blend it into them a bit and make it less noticeable that your wearing eyeliner."

Like recolour, or fill in brows that aren't there?

If you have dark, full brows naturally, any colour lighter than your own brows is probably going to need you to cover then up with concealer/primer/some sort of base for the colour to sit on. I generally use matte eyeshadow for the colour and an angled brush.

Toner is not makeup though, it's part of your skincare routine. If you don't use toner, make sure that you have a low-pH facial cleanser as toners are often used for pH correction.

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==9997885 && dateTime=="09/23/18(Sun)01:22:38")


You should probably start with a good moisturiser and build a routine from there. You should have a really good cleansing and moisturising routine before you even think about AHA/BHA because that can really mess your skin up if you don't know what you're doing.

>>9997882 is right, but as a side note, most cleansers these days are low pH, making toners more of a secondary layering step."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==9998174 && dateTime=="09/23/18(Sun)13:30:41")

Just to add onto these, not all toners are pH adjusting toners. Hydrating toners are your first hydrating step after actives (e.g. AHA, BHA, vitamin C), and are more common in Asian skincare. Astringent toners also exist (in the west only), but they're shit because they just dry you out and there's no reason to use them. It's true that you don't need a pH adjusting toner if your cleanser is already low pH, but hydrating toners are great to include in any routine, regardless of skin type."

Thanks, everyone. Yeah, I probably do need to start from the ground up. My whole life I've just used basic soap and no moisturiser, and I've been lucky enough for it to last me into my late 30s (probably cause I barely am out in the sun), but I should have learned how to take care of my skin sooner. I get a bit of acne from time to time, but it's nothing unmanageable so I'm not sure if I should be messing with PH beyond these non-adjusting toners. I'll start there and look into Asian ones, and not try any AHA stuff until I know my skin doesn't react badly to anything.

Anon... These support the treatment of an infection AS A RESULT OF OPEN SKIN LESIONS DUE TO conditions like eczema or dermatitis, not the treatment of the eczema itself. If you’ve got open wounds anywhere on your skin (which at some point the cycle of dyshidrotic eczema will produce unless carefully controlled with steroids), those open areas can become infected. Bleach baths can help with that. They cannot help against the continued breakouts of hereditary eczema because microbes are not what’s causing those in the first place. Anon didn’t ask how to get rid of infections, she asked how to prevent breakouts. The only proven way to do that is steroids.

What might be confusing you is the mention of “steroids or antibiotics” and this is understandable. Corticosteroids are sometimes prescribed to AD sufferers during the process of healing a bacterial infection that got in while a dermatitis wound was open. I’m sure a bleach bath could help with that. It’s not talking about reducing the need for the topical steroids that can dial back or prevent a breakout in the first place.

Dermatitis is a medical umbrella term that covers a bunch of discrete conditions, and AD or “contact eczema” is well understood to be a different condition than hereditary eczema (which itself is less well understood). I’m a hereditary eczema sufferer like the girl who asked. No environmental conditions have any influence whatsoever on what causes a breakout (particularly for the hands/feet - look up dyshidrosis if you haven’t but avoid looking at images if you want to sleep); the only reliable suspect is stress but that’s not exactly a helpful thing to tell someone to avoid.

TLDR: if you’re getting infections, sure, bleach bath away. Do NOT try to use bleach as a preventative measure, or to try to slow/stop the process of blister formation once it has begun. All you’re going to do is irritate the skin more. Use your steroid cream."

And to add: lest it be confused, I’m not championing steroids here. They are not foolproof and will not always work perfectly on everyone, and they have their own fairly serious downsides, especially with continuous use. They’re simply the only (real) game in town for those of us whose problems are genetic and not environmental. It is not perfect, but everything else is snake oil. The unfortunate fact is that there’s just not much money to be made in researching a better treatment for this since the population of sufferers whose condition can’t be reasonably well controlled by steroids is extremely small and the condition isn’t “sexy” or fatal.

And obviously, if your skin condition can be controlled with more moisturizer or better hygiene: you don’t have hereditary eczema."

Blues will nearly always fade through green if they are truly blue - otherwise you're looking at a fade through purple and grey (assuming you're getting your hair at least to a 8-9 and trying to get all the yellow out)

SFX have the best pink (Atomic Pink) that I have ever used and they also have Blue Velvet which is a deep indigo fade-through-purple shade and my favourite despite the PITA that it can be getting it out of stuff. Their lighter blues were not worth it for me - faded fast, were more like toner and just wouldn't "stick".
Directions is also not bad but everything I tried from them faded green - Plum (which is supposedly a pink fade, but that was really not the case at all!!), Midnight Blue and Atlantic blue. Directions for me has similar staying power to Manic Panic Amplified but at 1/4-1/2 of the price."

"Does anyone have any tips on getting eyeliner to stay put? I have oily Asian double lids similar to pic related, and no matter what I do, after a few hours my liner will always smudge to way below the bottom lid.

I typically use pencil liner for tightlining and liquid to wing it out on the outer corners only. I never use eyeliner on the lower lid at all. In the past, I've used liquid only or pencil only, and that didn't help either. I've also tried a ton of different eyeliner formulas, including pencils (MAC, MUFE), liquid (Kat von D, Dolly Wink, Clio, Stila), gel (TonyMoly), and even cake liner (Laura Mercier).

It's not my mascara, since I usually don't use any. I also do use primer all over the lid, and my eyeshadow will look perfect even after 12 hours. It's just my eyeliner that's giving me hell. I constantly have to wipe black smudges off of my lower lid every hour or two and I just want it to end."

By cake liner do you mean the ones that come in a little pot? I've heard good things about the Bobbi Brown and Nars ones.
Otherwise Urban Decay liquid liner has pretty good staying power for my oily lids.

I definitely suggest trying out different eye primers. For example, Too Faced original one holds much better for me than Urban Decay's. Also after primer I bake with a bit of nude eyeshadow too before applying actual makeup.

I mean the ones like pic related, they're like eyeshadows but you swipe a wet brush around and it turns into a gel / paste type of consistency. The Laura Mercier one is designed especially for tightlining so I thought it would fix the problem, but sadly it hasn't worked out either. Thanks for the tip on the primers, I'll try out a different one. I've only ever used the UD primer potion.

For my undereyes, I use a cream concealer set with powder. I've been told setting sprays are more for setting base makeup than stuff like liner, but at this point I'm so desperate I might as well give it a shot."

It's not just makeup that's affecting your skin. Think of UV rays, being near pollution, poor diet and sleep, dehydration, and physical things like rubbing eyes. All of those contribute to skin aging.

As for your under eyes, what you're complaining about are dark circles, as those look like bruising.

Puffy eyes are easy: reduce salt intake and use a cold compress on eyes.

Dark circles vary, and depending on what color they are, you have different reasons for it. Generally purpley brown ones are genetic, and the only thing you can do is be gentle to not worsen it. There are creams specific for lightening the skin around your eyes, but they won't fully get rid of it.

Also, wrinkles under your eyes isn't something you can really get rid of as the skin is delicate. Try dabbing/stippling makeup on around your eyes."

Okay, here are my, completely non science-based, opinions on the matter.

What seems to differ from eyeliners that work and dont work for me is by what they are removed. Mascaras that work for me do not smudge (my main issue, never have issues with flaking) but are easily removed by water. In comparison, waterproof mascaras usually perform poorly on my eyes and smudge a lot. Thus, I deducted that the same must be true for eyeliners. I'm currently using Smashbox Always On Gel Eyeliner pencil (not the always sharp one, but the actual pencil). Its basically undestructable on my eyes (dries quickly, not smudgeable) and will last an entire day. However, rub it with water and it'll start smudging.

my point to make here is maybe your eyeliner isn't compatible with the type of longevity your eyes need.

Also fuck tightlining, it looks so good but shit always smears everywhere, I assume its because its constantly in contact with a moist eyeball."

Start with cleanser and moisturizer.
Cerave or cetaphil are good brands to start with.
Even if you have oily skin, a gentle cleanser is better than one that will strip all your oils/skin barrier.
Other brands that you can buy online - The Ordinary is raved about but may be a bit overwhelming for a newbie to skincare. Bravura London is a decent brand and they have some basic skincare routines on their website which is a nicer introduction to acids and actives than The Ordinary."

I had that. My skin was basically clear but had all these little bumps that never came to a head. Changing my pillow didn't work, acne medicine didn't work because I didn't have acne! It ended up being something called folliculitis. The bumps are caused by a fungus - it sounds gross but its not that bad. I did two things: the first time I did it, I went on an antifungal called fluconazole for just a few days. cleared it up INSTANTLY. since then, when I get little flareups, I wash my face with nizoral shampoo. I let it sit on my face for about 5 minutes and then wash it off.

"Has anyone gotten a curly perm? Did you like it? Did it damage your hair? How long did it last?

I have short-medium length hair (below my jaw, above my shoulder) that I'm really bored with right now. I thought a perm might be a nice way to change things up while I let my hair and bangs grow out. I feel like a granny when I talk about this around my friends because even our moms haven't had perms since the 90s."

Yes, I had a cold perm 5 months ago on the ends of my dead straight Asian hair (what people call 1a) and I love it. My hair is about armpit length. Every perm is damaging, but I got my hair cut first so that I was starting with my hair in the best condition possible - I've been back for trims but no more frequently than before I got the perm. It is a bit more work to keep the perm shape because it can still be brushed out to straight/slightly wavy, so I tend to scrunch dry it then either plop it or put it in a bun."

"I'm really a newbie to skincare and while my skin isn't terrible without using product, I want to make sure my skin is as good as it can be if possible!

A few months ago I started using the garnier micellar water cleanser + their rosewater toner along with a moisturizer that was intoduced to me at a sephora by a worker when I went to france called "Honey Drop" made by Farmacy. I told her I had dry areas around the nose especially if I were to use foundation there so she ended up recommending this to me. I also use the "simple" brand exfoliator once a week on my nose.

I'd really like some help on what else I should add or change!

Your skin might be super dehydrated in those areas. I recommend for you Cerave from the tub (cheap AND effective) or The Ordinary's Buffet. Both contain ceramides and hyaluronic acid which help your skin retain its water content. This keeps your skin from drying out.

Also, make sure you aren't OVER exfoliating with your exfoliation product as I've done that before and that can make your skin raw, red, and flakey for a few weeks until you repair the moisture barrier in your skin. I hope this helps!"

Yes, with fairly tight rollers. My hair is that white people mixture of 1 and 2A that won't hold a heat curl at all, untangles itself when you tease, and rag curls fall out in an hour or so, so I didn't have much hope. The individual strands are pretty thick and sleek so I was mainly hoping that the perm would do enough damage to the strands to allow me to curl it with heat and get some root volume when I want it. And good thing my expectations were low because the "perm" disappeared in fucking days, lol. But at least at that point I could heat curl and style it a bit. I hope you have better luck! Curls are great, don't let it make you feel like an old person."

I'm in the same boat and have consulted with extremely pricey LA people about this. If you're like me where it runs in your family and you have troughs and darkness even when you're plenty healthy/rested, the only thing for us is surgery. Sorry :c"

If you have under-eye wrinkles at 18, I'm sorry to break it to you, but that's genetic. Nothing you do or don't do will change it. Surgery is probably your best bet, unless you can find a way to just be happy with yourself."

Thank you! It sounds like we have very similar hair textures, so maybe I'll hold off. I don't want to pay $200+ for something that's not going to work.

Heat styling does nothing for my hair unless it's from wet (blowout will hold for a decent while) or literally frozen stiff with product, but I was hoping a perm would be different. I'm sick of having lifeless hair.

I have terrible dark circles/bags (red/brown on my lid and deep purple under) and I swear by benefit's boing brightening concealer! It's like magic."

">>10012854 >>10012828
Have you gulls tried a bantu knot-out? You look silly for a few days while the hair is drying, but it lasts for a while, especially if you use a bit of product. The final hair style depends on how you knot it, pin it, and brush it out.

I know rag curls use a really similar technique, but they just don't work for me (maybe because it dries a lot faster?). Same with heat and perms. This is the only thing that gets my hair to curl and stay curled for more than a few hours."
