Title: Fine hair around the hairline
Post by fireninja99 on Oct 20th, 2008 at 4:30pm
Hi. I am Asian, and I have black hair [If it matters. Does it?]. I have quite oily hair and I get dandruff if I get lazy and don't wash my hair. I have to wear my hair in a moderately high ponytail for school on a daily basis.

In May I got a very layered haircut [Which I love], it's kinda short in front so I have to clip my hair up and tie my hair in a lower and looser ponytail. [School rules, can't have hair in my face] But I noticed when I clip up my hair, finer hair that I can't clip up is all around my hairline. Is there something I can do to grow out? It's been that way for years. A bit late for help?

The hair tie I currently use for school is the fabric-covered elastic, which I think is quite hard on my hair. I'm about to switch to the scrunchie and the purple one for home and school.

I also need some suggestions on growing long hair. I drop a lot of hair [Is it normal?] and when it gets worrying I just cut it. I want to grow long hair [To about under the bust] but I am only allowed to have haircuts every two months, no more often. Is that fine? How much should I tell my hairdresser to cut every two months? Or should I leave it to him and tell him that I'm growing my hair long? I kinda have a phobia of him over-cutting and my hair's growth rate can't keep up with the amount he cuts.

I don't cut my hair often at all. For a quite a long while now, I cut my hair every 5-6 months until I read the 20 step guide to keeping long hair and realized it isn't very good for my hair. My haircut times vary a lot, I just get one when I think about it. I know it's unhealthy for my hair but it doesn't really affect my hair much. I used to swim a lot, yet my it still stays shiny and soft no matter how much sun or chlorine it's exposed to. I know, I know, what more could I ask for when I already have hair like that, right?

Anyway, I hope I get useful suggestions from you Rapunzels. :)

Welcome to LongLocks!

The shorter hair you are experiencing is probably a combination of new growth and some damage from wearing your hair in a ponytail all the time.    The hair tie you use should be soft so that does not cause any more damage.  

As for trims - keep in mind the average person's hair grows 1/2" per month.  If you are trying to grow longer hair, your trims must be less than that.  If your hair is pretty much one length at this time, you probably don't need to trim your hair any more than 2 or 3 times a year.  You can trim the split ends yourself with a sharp scissors.

Growing long hair takes patience and care.  Take care of your hair and you will have beautiful long hair.
