Help Ladies!!!! Need Advice.
About my recent hair-cut. I am new to this country and wanted a hair-cut.I had medium to long hair that are wavy and very frizzy and they were cut in two steps. So I searched for hair salons here and was recommended to one good salon by one of my friend. I got the appointment with the senior most hair stylist (paying up way too more for that approx $70) so that I can have a good hair-cut. When I met her I told her that I want a hair-cut that should be easy to manage just brush/comb(i.e. no blowdry and styling). I donot want to invest my time in blow-dry and styling as I am a mom to a very active 9 month old infant. That time she shampooed my hair and cut it and at the last before blowdry she applied some styling product (to straightened my hair) and blow dry it and gave me a good look with short hair. I was very happy with the look I got and so was my hubby. But for a very short time. After 2 days I took a head bath at home and as usual I donot blowdry my hair and I just apply hair serum to reduce the frizziness (the same serum that i used to apply before the hair-cut) But my hair have become way too frizzy with this cut and all the more wavy that it looks horrible.I am in a fix what to do. Please suggest me what to do. Should I call up salon again to talk to them. Has anybody unfortunately gone through it. what did u do. I dont know in this country if i can go back to her and ask for something else like a hair-cut or a hair straightening treatment kind of thing and should i pay again to rectify it. I am really worried as I have two functions to attend this weekend. Any suggestions are welcome.

You need to go back to the salon and say ''' I said very clearly that I needed a cut that would NOT require a lot of ''fusshing''-- I got exactly what I asked NOT to have- I need you to make this right. '''' They should provide you with product and counsel to make the cut work for you- and they should charge you VERY little money to make it right.
Good luck, S.-

Most stylist would want you to come back in the future for other hair cuts and want to make sure you are happy, so do go back and tell her what you need as soon as possible.

I would ask the stylist what product she used on your hair or what she/he recommends using to control the frizziness. I think it is okay to call or go back just to find that out. It doesn't sound like another hair cut would help you, just something to control the friz! S.

call the salon and talk to the person who cut your hair. find out what she used on your hair and ask her for suggestions. any good hairstylist wants their customers happy so she should be willing to help you.

Well, it looks like everybody has been through that. I'm from Europe and I feel your pain. We go back there every summer and this is where I would have my hair cut. Once per year, that's right, but it will be the way I want it. The last time I had a hair cut here, I went back to the salone and "yes" she was very concern and her supervisor did try to make it better and still looked terrible. I had to have it on a ponny tail for 4 months. Since than I found a Russian guy close to where I live and I'm very happy with him. He takes time to talk about what exactly I want and than takes time to do it. Last time he even sad "no" to one of my requests because that would make my hair fussy and like a pyramid after the first wash at home. Plus is very afordable. This summer was the first time ever I went back home in style. Good luck with finding the perfect one for you!

My hair is the same. I don't recommend getting it straightened. I had this done so I WOULDN'T have to do anything to it, and ended up having to flat iron it because the straightening left my hair looking horrible. It also smelled like the chemicals forever which gave me a headache.
What I do is wash my hair use a light conditioner, let it sit for 5 minutes, rinse in very cool water and let it dry naturally. I only use a large wide toothed comb on my hair. Other types of combs and brushes breaks off the hair causing worse frizzing. I NEVER put products in my hair because I don't like the look or smell. I don't comb my hair when dry except using my fingers. I can put it up in a alligator clip or ponytail or leave it down and it still looks good. I also keep my hair a little long. About shoulder length. When curly hair is dry, it shrinks a lot and if it's like my hair, it will look like a Christmas tree when dry. Keeping it a little long compensates for this.
I wish you a lot of luck.
Also, I wouldn't go back to have it re-cut. I feel that would be a terrible disaster and mistake. Let it grow a little more.
I'm in the same place you are, I just learned to live with curly hair.

Go back to the salon a/s/a/p!! Most times they figure something out.

is your hair just frizzy or is it a little curly. If it curly try using products to maintain the curl and you can let your hair air dry. I like KMS products curling balm and spray get.
