Unruly Hair!

Hi there, I have just come back from a 6 month trip overseas, with a new head of curls, which I have never let grow before. Because of remote locations, and so on, It has grown very long, but also I have only been using hand soap, and no shampoo etc. Once I arrived home, I borrowed some conditioner from my mother, however I would like to keep my hair long. I think it may need some styling, in the form of a cut, and also some products. Where I live is quite humid, and so it tends to frizz a lot, but can look great at times, One photo I took just tonight on my webcam, and the other was taken after over a month of soap use. I am not really sure what to do as I don't trust the ordinary hairdressers that I used to visit, What would you recommend in terms of products and styling?

Thanks for your help, Jake.

    What kinda soap?? Because the hair still looks nice lol it could have been a moisturizing soap. But keep using the conditioner and another 6 months will reverse any damage you might have done.

    I only recently started using conditioner. For about 30 years I only used shampoo.

    Now I only use conditioner. So I would say if you want to grow it longer then you will need to keep it moisturized with a good conditioner.

    Men are so lucky! LoL! One using just shampoo, one using friggin hand soap.. Both still have gorgeous hair!My hair would look like I've been smokin' crack for 3 year!! 😒

    Anyway, Princeton said it all when he said moisture is the key. As far as styling, I like the way you're wearing it in these pics. You look famous. LoL!

    I'm a soap junkie. I have used soaps from Europe and middle east and they are extremely moisturizing and not the drying crapy commercial soaps they sell us in the US. I buy this EVOO soap that is made in Greece to bathe with and it is amazing. I get so many compliments and people asking me what high price products I use. My bff brought me back some soap from France and I was so sad to finish the last of it. I use ayurvedic soap to wash my hair.

    Anyway, it is hard to recommend product without knowing your hair propeties but you might try Tresemme conditioner. I love your hair. You are a cutie pie.
    Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it. :wav:
