Thanks for sharing, I have long hair and with maddening curls, its very fried and frizzy which annoys me immensely. I am going to see a decent stylist and take care of it more, I have learned a lot more recently on what I was doing wrong and going for healthy first over a look.

I am starting to embrace the curls and get the frizz under control, living in the south means I tend to hibernate during the summer months and only have good hair days in winter :-)

I had some damage from highlights; my stylist recommended a shampoo enriched with proteins, and it helps a lot; I also go longer between highlight treatments, and that has been helping also.

Thanks, I am looking at colouring and switch between getting something outrageous or more natural, I was looking into coconut oil for moisture or egg whites for protein I haven't found a magical product that works for me yet and think old school may be the way to go. I haven't coloured my hair since I was a punk into Billy Idol and Bowie back in the day. Luckily no photos exist of those times (shudder)

I love a more natural look, still trying to find a feminine style which suits my hair type and the shape of my face.

Thanks for sharing! I'll definitely give it a try.

Here’s a link for the shampoo I use http://www.beautycarechoices.com/alfaparf/semi-di-lino-reconstruction-reparative-shampoo
I’m not affiliated with the company in any way; I just like it! I wash my hair every other day (you only need to use a small amount) and the medium size bottle lasts a couple of months for me.

My natural colour, haven't coloured for 3 years. Never use hair dryers (unless I have my 2 monthly  trim). My hair stops at this length & wont  go any longer, nor will my  sisters (2 years younger). I'm 61 in October https://scontent-lht6-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/31046354_621161471568380_2876802617080545280_n.jpg?_nc_cat=0&oh=6778bec6b6b4e6dc454a18dacb2e46b3&oe=5BDA9AE8

You look really nice.  If I looked like that, I wouldn't have a cartoon avatar. 

This is a really useful topic.  Thanks to Julia and all contributors.

... Ican't get the hang of posting pix, tried many times.

If you are referring to the photo in the url, a preview showed that putting [*img] at the start of the url and [*/img] at the end, WITHOUT the asterisks, would display your photo on the forum.  (I used asterisks because markup language doesn't display on the forum.)

Alternatively, you could quote from a post that displays a photo and replace the url with your own.
