  2. Have you been checked for PCOS? The supplement inositol and keto are supposed to be miraculous for it, even better than metformin.

  3. I actually do have pcos and hypothyroidism since I was like 14

  4. Okay well xxketo on here for more information on how keto can help. I actually follow the AIP (autoimmune protocol) diet and found that I no longer needed thyroid meds and my period went from being 2-3 times a year, to being regular. I haven’t needed thyroid meds in 7 years, when I was originally told I’d need them for life. Inositol has been helpful for me too. Good luck!

  5. An allergist can do a chemical patch test to see what common shampoo etc ingredients you might be allergic to

  6. Do you know the porosity of your hair? That can affect what products you should use drastically

  7. I didn’t know about this it seems really interesting though hopefully it’ll help my hair, thank you for the recommendation I have the sort of hair that goes really curly when wet but on a daily basis just frizzes outwards so looks messy.

  8. Yeah so sprinkle some water on it, and if it beads up on top of your hair instead of making it wet, it’s low porosity. If that’s the case, search “fine low porosity hair” on reddit. Trader Joe’s tea tree shampoo is recommended. If you need conditioner (which you might not because your hair isn’t long— i dont use much and my hair is long), the Suave Rosemary Mint conditioner is good. People recommend the LA Looks sport blue gel. Our hair plays by a different set of rules and can’t handle much moisture. The Curly girl method is terrible for us. I’d avoid Shea Moisture and anything with coconut. I hated the Not Your Mother’s Mango conditioner some folks recommend. If you have been using really heavy products, use a clarifying shampoo once to get rid of the build up. Hope that helps! Edit: what is your routine? Also, I hope you aren’t brushing it while it’s dry!

  9. Do you know the porosity of your hair? That can affect how you help it a lot

  10. Well, your pictures don’t really show much? They arent very clear and the selfie is a weird angle. Hmm, I’d say whiten your teeth (crest white strips and whitening tooth paste), make sure your beard is trimmed neatly. I like the glasses and the white shirt fits you nicely. You’re not ugly at all. Your body looks great, you should be proud of your hard work!

  11. Do you know the porosity of your hair? That can affect which products you should use

  12. Okay i have forehead lines too, but I’ve sort of decided that they look cool? Keira Knightley has them and they kinda add to her beauty. It’s like an effortless thing.

  13. I'm glad you found a way to embrace yours! Thanks for sharing!

  14. Hmm, well something to consider is how you’ll be able to express yourself while you’re singing. If you are trying to do a soulful face, but can’t move your forehead, it might take away from your performance. And forehead lines are on young peoples foreheads you know, I’ve had them since I was 25. But if you want botox, don’t feel badly. Sorry if I’m being annoying, I guess as an entertainer, your whole body is an instrument, and I there are trade offs with plastic surgery, you know? Like when people get a nose job and their voice changes etc.

  15. I would see if you can determine if you have high or low porosity hair. Once I learned mine was low porosity I was able to find products that leave my hair feeling clean and don’t contribute to build up. My hair also loves an apple cider vinegar rinse once a week. My hair is a lot less oily now and doesn’t get limp and stringy.

  16. What products do you use? I recently found out I had very fine low porosity hair and currently what is recommended on r curlyhair for that is the trader joes tingle shampoo, suave conditioner, and la looks sport gel. Surely there must be better products!

  17. I really like the Giovanni products - I buy the big smooth and silk shampoo with a pump and really like both the smooth as silk and green tea conditioners. I haven't tried any of their other products. The Maui hibiscus water conditioner was also good. About once a week I use Avalon organics apple cider vinegar shampoo, or do a full ACV rinse (dilute, scrub into scalp, leave on while I shave, etc.) and both make my hair so soft and happy. I also love the Olaplex no. 7 bonding oil, it gives my hair just enough moisture and doesn't make it greasy. I have wavy hair and really like Miss Jessies products. I got a few of the sample sizes to try and love the curly meringue. I'm so happy to finally have found products that are affordable and don't result in tons of build up!

  18. Thank you so much for such a thorough reply! I really appreciate it!

  19. Well, taking a close up selfie in terrible lighting facing the camera straight on makes everyone look bad (there is a Vox article that talks about how selfies make the nose look 30% bigger than it is)—however, when i look at this picture i dont say, “hey this guy looks bad and ugly.” If you built up your jaw chewing gum (carefully, as to not get tmj—check the mewing subreddit) you would probably feel better about your appearance. Also having your hair long enough to cover your forehead would look good and frame your awesome eye color. Your skin looks really nice. Weight lifting might help your confidence. You have a lot of potential. Just don’t get lost in focusing on what you don’t like about yourself. I think if you follow my advice, you would be considered good looking, actually, not that you’re bad looking now. Be kind to yourself.

  20. Make sure youre getting adequate vitamins and nutrients! That can help a lot! While losing weight, prioritize healthy food, rather than eating small amounts of junk. I had to learn that and it helped so much! They have apps that help you make sure you’re getting enough iron ans calcium etc

  21. Your routine seems to be working because your hair looks great!

  22. Brown flatters your skintone far better. You also look more youthful. The blonde looks Old Navy and the brunette looks Madewell, if that analogy makes sense.

  23. Sooo, I'm another fine/wavy, I just did that test, and, lo and behold - drops just stayed on it. What does that mean for the correct products to use?

  24. Okay, so the trader joes tingle shampoo, the suave rosemary mint conditioner, and the LA look sport gel are what are generally recommended. Fortunately, the cheap stuff works for us. I can only do a teeny amount of conditioner every other day ( test what you can handle) and I have to rinse it out completely. If you research products, be sure to include “fine low porosity hair” because many different textures can be low porosity. My hair hates excess protein. I also couldn’t do the Not Your Mother’s Mango that some people recommend. Coconut is bad too. Shea moisture is not for us. I can’t cowash— I need shampoo. Hope this helps!

  25. I appreciate your suggestions! Thank you :) Do you have any suggestions for refreshing low porosity hair?

  26. Well I just wet my hair and scrunch it a bit, though there is surely a better answer. I wish I knew more— I only recently learned that I have fine low porosity hair and there isn’t a lot of good info on here about it unfortunately. But I constantly see posts from people who have similar hair to mine asking for help on here, and all of them seem to end up having fine low porosity hair! Honestly there should be a more prominent pinned post about porosity because in the past week I’ve probably helped ten people, but I’m new to it myself! It frustrates me to see that a lot of people just start telling people CGM stuff rather than asking if they know their porosity, because CGM is so bad for our hair!!

  27. Test the porosity— if you flick water onto it and beads up on top instead of absorbing into the hair, you have low porosity hair, and that has a whole different set of rules than most curly hair. People of all different textures can have it, so if you do, you likely have “fine low porosity hair.” If not, don’t worry about it

  28. If your doctor is dismissive of referring you to a dermatologist, maybe get another doctor? What do they care if you see a specialist? It doesn’t cost them money! It’s actually smart to have a yearly skin check at the dermatologist. My dermatologist looks me over to make sure I don’t have any suspicious moles or any other issues. My regular doctor is not someone I trust for skin issues because that’s not their speciality. Doctors are supposed to help you, not dismiss you. You have to advocate for yourself.

  29. Exercises would be my immediate advice but you're already on it. Target your jaw and shoulders specifically and I guarantee after a period it'll help. It may not fix the world but it's a step in the right direction :)

  30. Do you have any exercises that you recommend?

  31. Apply for food stamps etc if you’re able. I knew a girl working at a prestigious publication who was on food stamps. There is no shame in using them. You paid for them with your taxes.

  32. Hey!! I had missed your comment for some reason!! I’ll follow your advice.. can I dm you?

  33. Hi sorry I don’t so dms on reddit because I don’t have the app. I’m also not the best with advice. If you do check r curly hair, try testing the porosity of your hair. That makes a large difference in how you care for it. You might have low porosity hair. If you flick water onto it, and it beads up on top, rather than making your hair wet quickly, you have “fine low porosity hair.” You would not use what the average person with curly hair uses. If it isn’t low porosity, you’ll find plenty of advice

  34. Okay, so the trader joes tingle shampoo, the suave rosemary mint conditioner, and the LA look sport gel are what are generally recommended. Fortunately, the cheap stuff works for us. I can only do a teeny amount of conditioner every other day, and I have to rinse it out completely. If you research products, be sure to include “fine low porosity hair” because many different textures can be low porosity. My hair hates excess protein. I also couldn’t do the Not Your Mother’s Mango that some people recommend. Coconut is bad too. Shea moisture is not for us. I can’t cowash— I need shampoo. Hope this helps!

  35. Okay thank you I will probably go shopping tomorrow and try this out and Sunday because that’s my wash day at the moment

  36. Oh so it it is low porosity? It seems like a large percentage of people who post with hair issues end up having porosity hair! There ought to be a pinned post about it!

  37. Oh this definitely helps! Love to hear that cheaper stuff works, haha. I don’t have a trader joe’s close by but maybe I can order it. I always assumed frizz=not enough moisture, but from all the feedback I’m getting I realize that’s not the case at all. Thank you!

  38. Great! Don’t clarify too often! Let me know how it works out! It seems like every other person having issues on this sub has low porosity hair!

  39. Also, if i have too much moisture in my hair, it looks dry and rough

  40. Taking a close up selfie in poor lighting while grimacing isn’t going to make you look your best. Plus, the photo is over exposed. For pictures, having good lighting, knowing your best angles and expressions is key. You can find videos on youtube to help you. Cameras are jerks and require all sorts of work to get good photos. A bad photo is not more accurate than a good photo. Do I think this is a good photo of you? No, but I would bet money you look far better than this in person.

  41. You look like you could look distinguished. You have a Clint Eastwood look to you (younger than he is now, of course). Be kind to yourself.
