It might help if you posted a picture first? I want my hair down but I’m getting it done because mine has a habit of ‘poodle-perming’ on me!

I did my own hair and used products I had tested before the wedding. If you like how your hair looks when you do it and you don’t want a fancy style, I’d say you can totally do it yourself. As for products, it’s difficult to recommend something to you since I (and other bees) can likely have very different hair than you. I’d say the best bet is to consult with people who have similar hair to you, or talk to your hair stylist (or read labels at a drug store to find something with a description that matches what you want, which is actually what I did and it turned out well)… Good luck!

I am a white girl with curly hair, and the product that makes my curls smooth is Redken ringlet 07. It’s like a lotion that you put in and it just smooths things out. I also just John Frieda serum if I’m going to blow dry it, and Redken fresh curls spring mousse, but you might not need those extra products. I like to finish it off with John Frieda anti-frizz hairspray — that stuff literally makes my hair a rock that will not move.

I have naturally curly hair and did my own, with my sister’s help. It was down and to the side.

My hair stylist was actually the one who recommended that I skip the pro. She has been cutting my hair for 10 years and said “there is no one who knows your hair better than you or i, and I’m not driving out there!” haha. I dont know, maybe permed hair is different.. natural curls are hard for a new person to wrangle.

Here’s mine

Regarding inky_1:’s Morrocan Oil suggestion, I used this and it damaged my hair, although it makes your hair feel soft it will give you split ends over time. 

I dont have any suggestions about doing your own hair, but I do want to tell you that I am Asian and most, actually all American shampoo’s are terrible (very damaging to your hair), try to order some Japanese Shampoo, I used Tsubaki by Shiseido which I get from amazon.

@elysion:  Yes, I use that product 🙂 I love it! It makes my hair silky smooth and gets rid of all frizz! You just put a little bit in your wet hair before you dry it. I recommend it as a product for anyone because it just works wonders on my hair. The best part is that it doesn’t make my hair oily… and I have blonde hair, so you can SEE oil lol.

@Aicyla22:  Did you use a specific brand? Because there are many brands of moroccan oil — I ONLY use that specific brand. It was recommended by a friend who is a stylist. It’s more expensive than some of the other brands, but I freaking love it. It does much more than just make my hair soft…
