MOD MOD MOD!! Ok my hair is SUPER fine. So when I curl my hair it does NOT stay curled for like 10 - 15 min.! I even bought a hair spray that is supposed to hold your hair based on wht u want when u curl ur hair. And guess wht! It still doesnt work! Frown plz help!


Hey girly, I would talk to a hair stylist. They will probably have the best suggestions for your hair. My roommate has thin hair too, and when she curls her hair she never uses a curling iron, she puts hot rollers into her hair, so try that. Hope this helps! Smile Smile

Thanks! Curling irons always confuzzled me. =)

My hair used to be naturally curly, but I think now that I have been straightening it more regularly, it's forcing my hair straight, even when I let it air dry. Frown
Is there any products or things I can do or use to restore my natural wave\\curl? :\

My hair used to be very curly! But my hair has grown sososo much that the volume is weighing down the curls and making it straight. I want my curls back I've tried curling it but it never seems to work is there another solution?

Hey girlie. Try using products like mousse and hairspray to help with the curls.

Hey mod whenever I take. Shower and get out my hair has a weird texture. When I go to blow dry it the top by the roots gets all greasy and gross. I've tried not drying it but then it smells weird. What should I do?!?



Hey chica! I'd try a volumizing shampoo and conditioner. And, make sure that you're not using too much conditioner ... that can weigh your hair down and make it look greasier Smile

mod mod!
i want pretty and big curls (like miley cyrus'). i don't want to curl my hair and putting it in rollers is too hard. i've tried to put it in a bun after a shower, but it takes a long time to dry. how do i get curls that are easy and fast.

Hey girl,

Unfortunately, aside from braids and buns after a shower, your only options are a curling iron or rollers. Using them once in a while won't hurt your hair - just be sure to use a conditioner in the shower and practice to do it right!

Hi Chica,

Hair dying can be tricky. You can buy semi-permanent hair dye that will fade out, but sometimes those will still leave color in. But your mom is right, it usually has to grow out, before the color is completely gone. I have never dyed by hair before with an at-home kit, so I don't have too much experience with this or advice. I would also talk to your hairdresser to see if he or she has any recommendations for semi-permanent hair dye. Good Luck!


danielle D.


I have light brown hair and I have never dyed it before, but I really want to turn the under color (or just a streak or something!) purple. Me and my sister went to the neareset drug store and found some purple semi-permanent hair dye from a brand called Splat.
When I asked my mom if I could dye my hair, she said no because it would never fade out and I would have to grow it all out before it disappears. I don't want that to happen, I wanted it to eventually just fade out (like after a month or two!).
Is that true? And do you know of any companys that sell purple hair dye that just fade out like how I want? Thanks SO much!

Well that cannot be the only solution! Have you ried flat ironing it? If you get a good, may be a bit pricey, flat iron, you can't get burnt inless you touch the hot parts in between. Hope this helps!

by JarOfHearts1999 on 3/23/2011 8:45:16 PM


I have really thick hair and I always have it up in a pony tail Or when i try to to straighten it just frizz's back up can you please help
xo-Maddie-xo Thanks Smile

Hey Maddie,

Ponytails are awesome go-to hairstyles, but you can definitely mix things up a bit. Try using a pretty scarf headband to dress up the normal ponytail. To stay away from the ponytail, try putting your hair half-up half-down. You could also ask mom or a friend to do a braid in the back - it controls like a ponytail but is a lot more flirty and fun Smile

my hair will NOT curl perid and if it does it lets down as soon as i step outside
MOD any advice


Hey girlie. Make sure you blowdry your hair after you wash it. Make it as big as possible. Then trying curling it with a curling iron. Do not straighten your hair before curling! If this doesn't work, ask your mom to help you put your hair up in curlers before you go bed. Then, after sleeping with curlers all night, your hair will bounce in the morning. Use a good hairspray to keep your new curls in tact.

I have super super thick hair, lucky me, and its straight. I feel like the only thing i can do to it to have it down is to flat iron it. Even though i try really hard to curl it, mind you i have tried everything imaginable, my hair falls flat in 20 minutes max. Any ideas?

by kenna_luvs_soccer on 3/20/2011 6:54:06 PM


i have thin, fine, straight hair and i dont know what hairstyles to use that will work well with my hair. do you have any ideas?

Helen S.

by lennyhommie on 3/18/2011 3:41:40 PM


I have kind of big ears that stick out, since my hair is really fine and really really straight. How can I style my hair so that my ears don't poke through? Usually I wear my hair in a ponytail because my ears don't seem huge like that, but I don't want to wear it like that every day. Thanks!

Hey girl, you could try wearing your hair down without pushing it behind your ears or half-up, half-down as a compromise with the ponytail.

MODMODMOD! i wash my hair every other day and the next day that I've washed my hair it's already starting to get oily I tend to use different shampoos and conditioners when I wash my hair what shampoos and conditioners would you recommend? Thanks! Smile

Hey girlie. Try looking out for products that say "for oily hair" on them. Those should help. Also, try to not condition it as much. That could help.

Not that I dont like my hair because I love it but one of my friends has the best looking hair, its like every time we are together her hair is perfect and people notice. I am not jealous but is it normal to be envious about her hair? Does anyone else have friends like that where you just wish your hair looked as good?

by luckykel on 3/13/2011 11:33:44 PM


Mod mod mod! My hair sort of falls flat, yet poofy all the time. Curling doesn't help, it just makes it poofier. how do i make it look better down? i always keep it in a pony most of the time cuz its unmanageable.



Hey girly girl! I'd try using a round brush to dry it with in sections. Then, go over it quickly with a straightener, and finally put it in some hot rollers (hot curlers). Leave the rollers in for about a half hour, and blast with a shot of hot air, and maybe a spritz of hairspray, before taking out. Then, run your fingers through and shake it around. My hair is super curly, and that's what I do. It works great! Smile

hey my hair is naturally curly because im african american and its shoulder length i really want to wear it out but but i cant find a product for my hair type that doesnt make it greasy and how to make it less frizzy and get the perfect curls

Hey girlie! I know what you mean -- I, too, am African American and have a hard time finding the right products. I suggest going to -- they specialize in hair care for all types of African American hair Smile

Whats the best type of curling iron to use?

Hey girlie! The best type of curling iron depends on many factors: thin or fine hair calls for a smaller iron, whereas thicker hair can use a larger barrel and so on and so forth. Also, material is important: ceramic helps to maintain moisture, whereas metal can make the hair appear dry. It all comes down to your hair type Smile

i flip the ends of my hair out with a curling iron because my hair is short and layered. my mom has had the same curling iron 4 15 years, and we just bought a new one. I'm so excited 2 try it out!!!!!!!!!

by spicyllamachick2120 on 3/11/2011 7:29:32 PM


modmodmod hey mods alright so i have been wondering there is this guy that i really like and like 3 days ago he broke up with his girlfriend, and ever since then we have been hanging out nonstop and i want to know if he likes me, so i asked my friend to talk 2 him and he said he thinks its to soon to ask me out yet...i kinda know what that means but then again i dont know,today i asked him for his number and he literally like grabbed his phone out of his pocket right when i said it is that a sign? Well anyways if you have any ideas on how to find out if he likes me and tips on how to get him to ask me out that would be spectacular!Laughing

Hey girlie! While I think it's best to wait -- since he just got out of a relationship -- here are some tips to find out if he does:

I curled my hair today! How ironic!
I use a flat iron. Main reason being because it's easy to have one tool for everything, but partly because its much easier than using a curling iron. You can also hold open the clamp and wrap the hair around it for Taylor Swift like curls. If you don't know how to use your flat iron for curling your hair, there are about a gazillion Youtube vidoes on it. It takes a while to get down but its really simple and more fun that using a curling iron. ;)

i am trying to grow my hair longer. but i need a haircut really bad bc of split ends that aggarvating dead feeling. have any tips for growing my hair out and keep it looking healthy without chopping off my mane?

hey! the answer's simple: get your hair cut (just 1/2 an inch or so) every month. it'll keep your hair healthy and actually speed up the growing process. good luck!

So my hair won't stay curled. It's soooooo thick and goes to the middle of my back. I use heat protector and have tried hairspraying the section both before and after I curl it, but within an hour it is completely straight again. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks a ton!!! (:

by thecupcakequeen on 3/11/2011 5:18:34 PM


how would you make an outfit look totally casual, but cute also?

hey! well that depends. if you're wearing mostly neutrals, add a colorful accessory. belt a dress to change it up, or just do your hair differently Smile

I have strawberry-blonde hair and it goes right below my shoulders. Its straight but i get alot of lumps in my hair. I hate hair in my face but I dont want to pin my hair back cause it will make my face look like an odd shape.. and I can never figure out how to do that "messy bun". I hate my hair!!!! I usually straighten it but im so sick of it. Any cute hair ideas?

by loveforever21 on 3/11/2011 2:19:53 PM


Mod! Mod! Mods
I have a really ugly mixed shade of blonde hair that is super curly in some areas, straightish in others, and wavy in the others. Every where is super frizzy. My hair reaches right above my chest, when not straight, and it has been that legnth for the past three years and I dont have any bangs. It hasn't grown at all D: Everyone at school has long hair but me! Everyone makes fun of me for it and it really makes me have no self confidence about myself. My family can't afford extensions or a Brazilian blowout. How can I cut and style my hair to look better?

Hey girl, I'd try using a straightener and straightening shampoo. It may help control the texture a bit more and straightening your hair will make it look longer.

You can do this with a flat iron too right?

Hey girl, yep! It's all about just twisting your hair around the iron so you get waves.

I have curly, brown, blond, copper-y colored hair. I have a little bit of natural highlight and lowlight to my hair. But I want to try highlights. Should I wait until summer? And what colors should I get? I don't want to emphasize the red in my hair. Thanks!

Hey girl, I think when it comes to highlights, it's all about what looks natural. Products like Sun-In let the sun naturally cause highlights in your hair. Should you go to a hairdresser, I'd ask her advice. Be sure to go for a color that's similar to the tones already in your hair.

MOD♥ I transferred to a new school recently and some of my old friends attend that school. Two of my grade school best friends go to that school and we don't talk at all anymore. Nothing happened, we just grew apart. Do you think it would be possible to become close with them again? I would really love to connect our friendship (: Thank you!♥

At my new school, I've made a lot of new friends so far including this guy. He's cute, really sweet, funny, and I think I might like him. He comes up to me at lunch to talk, we talk in algebra, and we have the same bus. I think I might like him but I don't want to make a fool of myself if he doesn't exactly feel the same way for me. How do I find out how he feels? Should I flirt with him? Thank you♥

i DON'T WANT TO SOUND RACIST BUT this seems like it would work for a caucasian person. They normally have a super silky and smooth hair texture. My hair is more coarse. How would i curl my hair with it having the texture it does?

Hey girl, you don't sound racist; that's a legit concern. I have a friend with coarse hair and her hair curls just fine with a curling iron too. It should work for both hair types.
