    I'm not sure if anyone else can relate to this, but I have incredibly straight, fine hair. It's light brown/dark blonde in color, and tends to grow very straight and outward.

    I've often heard this described as "asian hair" and it's texture does rather resemble that.

    Anyways, how do you deal with your straight hair? Do you grow it out and wear it long, or do you cut it every chance you get? How long can you go on the sides before you "Need" a haircut?

    Go short and textured and use thickening shampoo.

    I think you can do more with your hair than the 2 options you listed.

    You're lucky you dont have my very flat straight hair with no volume whatsoever

    I have the same problem. My straight hair is extremely fine with little body, but still develops cow licks because it grows straight outward.

    My solution has either been a short buzz cut, which fit in perfectly in the Army, or I have to grow it fairly long to keep it from spiking. Medium-short is impossible unless I use gel, which I hate. I also get the world's worst bedhead.

    The problem is having very fine hair, which tends to be flat AND unruly.

    Mine never did what I wanted when I was young and it was curly.

    Now it won't do what I want now that I'm older and it's straight.

    Straight or curly, the advantage is it's baby soft - people love running their fingers through it!

    At least its not curly like mine. My only options are keeping it short or shaved.

    My hair is completely straight and very fine. Style wise I can't do much with it either. I have found that if I use styling clay, as opposed to a gel, then it ends up looking much better if I use it.

    Using volumizing shampoo is a good idea as well. I have used it in the past and it helps add something to it.

    I just go with what I got. I'd rather have straight hair like I to as opposed to super curly hair. I'd imagine the latter is a lot harder to deal with.

    Hmm... back when I had fine straight hair;

    There were only two options.
    1. Buzz it short so you never have to worry about it
    2. Let it go so long that you can tie it back out of the way and never worry about it. (Caution, if you drive a jeep, it can whip around and put your eye out.)

    Anything in between is always a disaster.

    I've got the same hair. I get it cut every two weeks and keep it pretty short (see pictures). The only product that really works is Matrix Beach Clay. It doesn't look greasy or change the color of my hair but it keeps it from standing straight up and showing the cow licks.
