I have blond hair - plenty of it, but it’s quite thick and dead straight. I’ve tried having short hair and although it’s great as far as manageability goes (just wash and go) I don’t think it really suits me. Back in the 90s I had the ubiquitous long-fringe “curtains” look. That worked fine for my hair but of course rapidly went out of fashion. Since then I’ve struggled to control it. I aim for a kind of artlessly tousled look, but it very rarely works. If I don’t put any products on it, it goes madly fluffy - not a good look - unless I allow a couple of days’ grease build-up. But I don’t like the feel of gel, and in any case it never seems to work that well and my hair soon goes “flat”. I’ve tried wax, but it’s horribly sticky and greasy and tends to encourage spots on my forehead.
Anyone else got a similar problem? What products can help? Don’t get the wrong idea - I’m not especially vain
