I decided to go ahead and make this thread so i don't hijack anyone elses with hair talk.

So, if you have questions, or concerns about your hair or some one elses, feel free to ask .

background info : Former Chemical Art Director I for Toni and Guy. Chemical instructor. Trained at the Academy Dallas and London. Have trained with the Hair Police ( www.hairpolice.com) in exstensions and dread locks. I make hair peices (as seen on my Avatar). My main area of expertise is colour and exstensions....I can't cut hair, but I can answer questions about hair cuts.

Is there an actual way for one to make their hair artificially white without killing it? I tried some at home products and I ended up looking like cheetrah from the thundercats with bright yellow hair with orange spots.....not that thats not cool, but I have been curious to see if I could do that.

Not really. If you want stark white (Are we thinking Storm X-Men) there really is no way to do it. If you have very dark hair you can acheive platinum. One of my former co workers, who was asian, used to bleach and bleach and then apply a platinum toner and got a silvery grey colour, but he also kept his hair very short. If you have any previous colour in your hair (especially black) you will never acheive anything lighter then the Cheetara yellow....Beleive me, I was platinum for 3 years...went dark and tried to go back to platinum...very yellow!! My hair was pretty close to white, but the longer it got, the nastier it looked(fried and fuzzy). I saw a gel at trade secrets the other day (don't remember the brand) but the colour was called ChromeDome and it looked like silver goop in a bottle.....but I don't know how opague a gel it is.

Does that cover it?

A simple "no you can't " probably would have worked....but I have been known to go on and on .

Red, if you don't mind possibly ending up like Ronald McDonald, depends on how curly your hair is....is it loose curl...tight curl? ringlets? Afro? I don't reccomend white/bleaching...curly hair is frizzy enough as it is.

Well, find a hairdresser, consut with them before making an appointment. Find a curly haired hairdresser. If you see some one with curly hair and you like it, ask them who did it. Curly hair is tricky and not every one is an expert at it...

Washing your hair less often is better for it. Washing too often can dry it out and make it frizzy and brittle. I wash mine 2-3 times a week.Put conditioner in your hair before you get in the pool TIGI Fast Fixx is a good spray leav in for that, has UV protection. Wash your hair when you get out of the pool don't let the chlorine dry in.

Thanks...............I think when I tried to make it white I had just recently dyed my hair dark brown which turned out black.......my hair is its natural color right now which is almost black.......and yes I was talking white like storm in the x-men.

Oh well, I guess I will just keep my hair o' naturol. lol

Do you want permanant or temporary dreads? Are you black or white? Is your hair curly or straight? (All of these things do matter).

If you want temp dreads..and are in the US, I reccomend going to www.hairpolice.com and looking up the "affiliates" and seeing if there is one near you and getting their temporary synthetic dreads, they can do them in many different colour...washable, and removable, and you won't need to shave your head to get them out.

I would definately look for someone to do dread exstensions for you then...Removing permanat dreads is not just chopping it off, it's shaving your head, letting it grow out a bit, then shaving it again....You have to really be commited to Dreadlocks!

Dear Your Majesty,

In the days when I had a full head of flowing locks, I had utterly crap hair, which at the time I thought was cool, but quite blatently wasn't. Except for a number of comedy haircuts and bleach jobs (the badger stripe was my favourite), which were fun, I've never had a proper cool haircut.

Now, obviously due to my high virility (or so my balding brother tells me), my hairline is heading south, and makes any length of hair greater than cropped look like I'm in denial. Also, having been a suedehead for the last 5 years, I can't help but feel that any hair makes my head look enormous.

Another thing to consider is that loony cuts (like my av) aren't really viable anymore (more's the pity), as I work in a very very straight-laced industry, and represent my company as part of an on-site team with a very very very big customer.

Any suggestions - should I invest in a comedy syrup (....syrup and fig....wig) for laughs on nights out? Or is there a cunning style I can adopt that doens't make it look like I'm trying to conceal my massive shiny spam?

Cheers,

Jonman the baldy british bloke.

It really depends on the shape and amount of recession you have.....If you just have a hariline recession, many styles can be done. If you have a bald patch (friar tuck styley) that is a diffrent story all together.....

Ex: Sting has a very recessed hair line , his hair is short, but not shavedand is worn some what spikey or flat.

Phil Collins...the man just needs to shave his head!

hair texture also has alot to do with it, if you have curly or straight hair and what not.

Some times a slightly subdued mohawk (dare I say the beckham?) can look really good on a receeding or balding male...but you have to have straight hair to do it.

Shaving letter or shapes into your head went out with Vanilla Ice.

you can try Rigaine ( do they sell it in England) but once you start using it you have to use it forever...there is also a shampoo called Nioxin , again , I don't know if they sell it in England.
there is also transplants and so on...

Widows peaks are no biggy. My husband has major one and he is still yummy....so there.

www.cadhla.com you can check out his hair...receeding and curly, double wammy.

you mentioned an island...is it cut off from the rest of your hair??

no pun intended.

I think the cut you have works for you, because you are not trying to hide it, when you start actively trying to make yourslef look less bald...it draws more attention...


Blame your mother....it came from her side of the family.
