Competition Hair

I sometimes cut the ends of hairnets off, but do not remove entire hairnet. Use oil for shine. Blond hair normally is not as shiny anyway as dark hair

How do you apply the oil? From my own experimentation, oil (and most shine-specific products) seem to undo the hold-power of gels and hairsprays.... like the two are mutually exclusive, so i'm having to chose between hold or shine. I usually go for the hold since my shine-experiments have not been overly successful.
 
I use argan oil product for hair. Not sure about the brand, but I can look when I get home. I think it is just called argan oil. Got it at a CVS. I take two pumps into my palm, rub my hands together and then gently put over finished hairstyle. I had no difficulty with the oil dissolving Got2b, not even the smoothoperator one. Gives natural shine not the high gloss though. I did not care for a lot of shine products with a spray, because spray always came out uneven. My stylist taught me to put the product in the hands and run it through the hair, and that worked.

*cries* I don't want to think about hair again. I have about 5 more inches of hair than I did my last competition but it's still 8 inches less than I had last year for Badger and Ohio. I don't style short well...

Argan oil, also known as Moroccan oil, is great stuff. It's a dry oil, so it's the only one that doesn't weigh down my fine hair. And, even with my bleach-white-blond color, it does give hair some light-reflective qualities.

Ahhh i have some of that Moroccan oil. I kinda like the smell actually. I actually have the spray-oil version though...I'll have to try it on top of got2b gel.

I haven't tried the spray-on version. I think that might work better for me. I'll have to give it a whirl. And, yeah....I think the oil smells good too.

Lorelei.... Love the hairstyle. Out of curiosity, how long is your hair? I've been trying to step up my hair game and am curious if styles like these are possible with shoulder length hair

I think if you have a lot of hair to begin with, and tease it a lot? Or get creative with extensions.

I'm growing out my hair specifically so I can do more with it, but it's super fine and there's not a lot, so...yeah.
 
I went and looked - the product I used is redken all soft argan 6, but this is not to say any other argan oil would not work

llamasarefuzzy, thanks! My hair is shoulder blade length and I am growing out the bangs. With shoulder length hair, I would say buy a pony tail in your color, and you can cut off strands, put an clear elastic like Diane's brand (found in Sally Beauth Supply for example) around the base to secure it, and you can use it in your bun for more volume, or for the designs.
