So, about a year and a half ago my hair stylist moved because of a new relationship. This meant I had to find a new stylist. I haven’t actually been to see the same person more than once since.
I have wavy hair and lost of it, but the individual strands are pretty fine. Its currently just above shoulder length as I’ve been trying to grow it back out.
About a year ago I went to a stylist around the corner from work. I don’t think this stylist was very skilled, but the cut wasn’t so bad I complianed…just really blunt, and not well layered. She also used thinning shears to remove some of the bulk.
Fast forward to the past 3 months I’ve been battling with MAJOR flyaways. No matter what product I use, or how I dry I cannot tame the frizz on the top of my head. If i part my hair there’s 3 inch hairs sticking up. If i wear it back…you guessed it 3 inch hairs. GAH
So, what caused this? Was it the thinning shears? AND any suggestions?
…I just bought $30 shampoo this weekend because…that will help. lol

use s factor smoothing lusterizer to tame the friz and any tigi hair wax for the ones that stand up!!! there’s 2 kinds… one that is shiny… and another that is matte. either works to your preference. the dry wax can give your hair a textured look without looking greasy.

i am obsessed with s factor. it smells so good n works so well. the only down is the price… but little goes a long way.

I have the same type of hair and don’t ever let them near you with those thinning shears again. I swear I don’t understand those things. I’ve had my stylist start in on my with those things (after 3 years of going to her) and I almost wacked her away with my shoe!
Get something that will add a bit of weight to your hair. The hair wax might be too much for your fine hair. I use silk therapy but there are other “shine serums” that will work. I’d also use a light gel. I like curl junkie products.

If she used the thinning shears close to your scalp (which you are NEVER supposed to do to longer hair) then, yes, that could have absolutely caused the flyaways. And since the cut was done 9 months before you noticed 3in flyaways, then I’m guessing that’s what happened, in which case I’m SO sorry she did that to your hair!!
I would try using gel on wet hair and hairspray on dry hair as needed until the flyaways grow out long enough to lay down on their own.

OMG I MAY SHAVE MY HEAD!!!
I’ve tried a plethora of products (some you’ve suggested) and nothing works all day…re applications make things greasy. Plus, since adding the products I am finding I have to wash my hair every day which is kinda counter productive.
I went to a salon to get my hair washed and blown out this morning (and try to find a new stylist) and she wonders if its breakage since it seems to be centered around the front of my head? I do straighten my bags daily (but I only wash & dry every other day at the most), I also tend to pin the front back for work. Plus, I don’t ever remember the thinning shears being used near my scalp.
She managed to get everything smooth…and it stayed that way for the drive home!!! She also suggested I get my hair cut again because the layers are all wrong for my hair type…which I know because its been nearly impossible to style, but I am trying to grow my hair out for the wedding (it was an angled bob previously) so I can’t get it cut again until just before.
…unless I shave my head.
