Multiple personality hair: How to deal when your hair is curly and straight at the same time.

There is a hair gray-area between curly and straight that many of us live in. And I’m not necessarily
talking about wavy hair. It is more a mix of curly, straight, and wavy hair growing out of different
parts of your head. This can be something you are born with, or your hair texture and wave pattern
can change due to hormones or certain illnesses and medications. It can be a challenging figuring out
what to do with mix-textured hair.

Lay down your weapons…

First thing, don’t fight your hair too hard. I think it is best to treat your multiple personality hair like it
is curly. Don’t shampoo too often. Make sure it is well moisturized and don’t mess with it too
much….Like after you have towel dried it and combed through it with your fingers, give it a good
scrunching and let it dry without messing with it at all.

As far as your cut and style….

What I have found is that hair with inconsistent wave/curl pattern does best with layers and some
bulk removing. When these two things are combined, they result in a general blending of textures and
freeing of bulky weight so that the curly parts are less poofy and the straight parts are more wavy.
This makes the hair appear more consistent throughout, and it happens to be great for low
maintenance styling.

In closing, be grateful that you get the best of all worlds in a weird way. Your hair has multiple
personalities. If your hair went to a party, it would be the most interesting one there.

I rarely feel sophisticated, but these Lauren Bacall–like waves change that fast. After setting my hair in rollers, I brush out the curls and apply styling cream for extra silky strands, then pin one side back. It's simple to create yet feels siren-chic. - See more at:

The Braided Brooch

"Krista's [Soriano, Articles Editor] style is more low-key so I wanted to do something that didn't distract from that," says Chen. "This braided brooch is easy-to-do yet glamorous and can be worn casual or dressy." Chen started by grabbing a small section of Soriano's hair, just behind her bangs and dividing it up into three strands.
