My straightened hair won't last for more than an hour or two. How can I fix this?
I've had very long hair for most of my life, and it's naturally straight. I recently wanted a change and got an A-line bob cut. Tragically, I then discovered that when short it has a natural wave in it right around the chin area. It flips out at the chin at the right side and looks incredibly stupid. And this isn't a little flip at the bottom - this is a big-ass flip. It looks like one of those 60's flip haircuts
- except only on one side.
Obviously, I want to grow out this awful pain-in-the-ass haircut, but in the mean time I want to look half-decent. I'm stuck straightening it every day, which works initially, but after an hour or two, it always flips out again. I went out and splurged on a CHI straightener, and bought John Frieda Frizz-Ease serum on the recommendation of a hairdresser. I've tried straightening it straight, straightening it in the opposite direction, extra hairspray, hairgel, various heat protectants, but it STILL won't stay for more than an hour or two.
I would just give up and hide it under a hat now, but I feel like that there's got to be a way. I mean, people with tight curls manage to get their hair to go and stay straight - am I really stuck with my flip until my hair grows out?
