I need the two signature half-pigtails Misa has and it's difficult to do so because there are constantly too many flyways.
Does anyone know...
- Where to get small enough hair ties
- How to tame flyaways
-Any good hair products to keep my hair from changing too much through the day (hopefully this won't make it too stiff)

Thanks!

Any other tips you may have are welcomed

I recommend getting the little rubber bands that people use for hair braids. They are usually found at Walgreens, Walmart etc- but I know you can get them at Sally Hansen if nothing else. As far as fly always without making hair stiff (I'm assuming your using your own hair?) I do a keratin treatment at home - you can get them for 7 day treatments and they make hair really smooth and help make hair look healthier. You can get them at the salon but they cost an arm and a leg. I personally like the organix 7 day one. I do not recommend the tressme one. Then I spray my hair lightly with a hairspray and comb through the problem areas. I'll even use a toothbrush and spray that with hairspray and brush it in the part area. To get the real full look of her ponytails id use some kind of volumizing hair moose. I like the tressme 24 hour body one.

Yes I'm using my own hair. Thanks for the resources on the tiny hair bands! I'm afraid a keratin treatment wouldn't solve my problem and I just wouldn't have the time. My main problem is my hair sort of... Bending and such (there's a word in Korean I know that I don't think the English language actually has, it's difficult to explain) Thanks for the hair mousse idea, I have some somewhere, I'm sure.

You mean your hair is wavy?

As a fellow Korean I so get the translation problem. What's the word? I would also recommend a leave in conditioner or a deep conditioner. A shine serum or spray might also help you. Hairspray is awesome as long as you don't over spray :)

You might want to look into hair oil. There are tons of new products you can find at places like Meijer, Target, Walmart, etc. I just was looking the other day and found all sorts of brands that make it made with avacado oil, coconut oil, argan oil, and more. You pump a little into you hands and rub it through your hair. It really helps to tame fly aways.

If your problem is more that your fly aways aren't from dryness or static then maybe try a cream pomade. It will help keep the hair together and smoothed down.

Also, I use a Moroccan Argan oil deep conditioning mask to give my hair some shine and hydration. For deep conditioners I would say you only need to do them once or twice a month.

OH! I see what you mean. I agree with Jujufox on getting a hair oil product. I would say that the treatment would help a lot. Just keep taking care of your hair and you'll be good. :) I also agree on going to a salon. Maybe asking the stylist on what they recommend would be helpful to you. Good luck!

Thank you! That helped a lot to have someone be able to understand the word.
