  • How to encourage curls in fine hair?

    My shortish bob has a slight curl or wave to it and I'd like to find a product that would bring out more curls and make the ones I have stay around longer.

    Is there such a thing?

    If you find one, I'd love to have some. I don't have even a slight curl in my hair.

      Those old fashioned sponge rollers work great for this. If you want looser waves, then use larger ones and dont roll your hair tight. But, if you want tighter curls, then the smaller or medium sized ones work better. All you do is roll your hair when it is damp, almost dry. Then, leave them in all day (if you are home) or all night if you want curl the next day. It works great and the curl holds well for days, w/o any products to weigh your hair down. However, if your hair is too fine to stay in the curlers or roll, then try a golf ball size of mousse before you roll it. You may have to experiment a bit to find the right size rollers for the look you want, but the results are well worth it!

      D/Xed 2003 with IC. Also have the co-existing condtions of VV, Vulvadynia, Lupus, Fibro, GERD, CPP, Endo, & Adhesions, and Depression

      Meds: Estrogel (due to total Hyster)
      The meds r/xed by my Pain Dr. from the Pain Clinic are as follows: Morphine ER and IR, Baclofen, and Lyrica and Seroquel (used off-label as a sleeping pill, but it also helps with depression)


      (I listed my meds in case someone reading this has been told like so many ICers that Drs dont r/x pain meds for IC.) I want you to know that there ARE tons of us who are also dealing w/this disease and the pain and many of us ARE on pain meds.)

        Grant that I may not so much seek
        to be consoled as to console;
        to be understood, as to understand,
        to be loved as to love;
        for it is in giving that we receive,
        it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
        and it is in dying [to ourselves] that we are born to eternal life.

          I used to have perms all the time, but now that I'm retired I don't want to spend the time or money on getting one every three months so I wear my hair straight now.

            Hi everyone!

            Thanks for the advice.

            A few years ago my hair dresser at the time sold me a bottle of "Ringlet" which is a liquid that comes in a pump type silver bottle.

            I could never see how it helped but I'm giving it a "go" again. I wash my hair, touch up the color at the part and crown, throw in some thing for body and then I added some Ringlet today.

            I dry it with a diffuser - scrunching it up/plucking it up with my fingers for the first few minutes then I dry it with the diffuser with my fingers sort of fluffing it down from the root to the end - all over. After its pretty dry I let it sit for about 15 minutes and then put the sides behind my ears.

            Its just my opinion but not too may 67 yr olds can pull off having their hair around their face - so I always put it behind my ears.

            Total time -1/2 hr including other morning "essentials" such as teeth brushing, face washing and moisturizing, getting dressed, etc.

            Looks kinda curly now (2 hrs later) but I'll see if it holds all day!!

            Thank again for your help!!
