how to get wavy hair

Kenhina Headcanons
  • Hinata has a fascination with Kenma’s hair. He’ll beg to braid it and will keep asking until Kenma gives in and lets him. Natsu frequently joins in and gives Kenma a makeover. Her face is too pure for Kenma to refuse.
  •  Out of the two of them, Kenma is surprisingly more clingy. He gets depressed whenever Hinata isn’t around to brighten his day, which Hinata knows. He’ll send Kenma a barrage of texts throughout the day to keep his spirits up. Kuroo never fails to tease Kenma when he smiles at his phone because he knows Hinata texted him. 
  •  During training camps, no one dares to try and sleep beside Hinata because Kenma will give them the most terrifying glare all while sitting in his boyfriend’s lap.
  •  For Kenma’s 18th birthday, Hinata surprised him by traveling to Tokyo and organizing a surprise party with a combination of the Nekoma and Karasuno teams. Kenma will never admit to crying later that night in gratitude.
  • Both Kenma and Hinata’s wardrobes are so mixed together that they wear each other’s clothes constantly and don’t care. Kenma loves the smell of Hinata’s clothes, and Hinata loves how warm and soft Kenma’s are. 
  • Kenma’s hair gets super wavy if it gets wet. Hinata is completely enamored by it ad will purposeful bring Kenma around water just to see it. 
  • Hinata soon stopped bringing Kenma near water when he accidentally discovered Kenma never learned how to swim. Kuroo nearly killed him for that.

How do you get your hair wavy? ^^

I’ve done a tutorial on my IG showing how I do this + I use a sea salt spray that I actually just posted about yesterday by Evo Hair.

Curly/wavy hair in the Bakumatsu - Happy Birthday Gin-chan!

October 10th is the birthday of Gintama’s protagonist, Sakata Gintoki, who is constantly complaining about his unusual “natural perm” hair. 

(thanks to Colton of the Life Lessons Gintama Mangacast for finding Gintoki and Katsura’s first fight about hair)

Gintama is not known for its historical accuracy, but it might surprise you to learn that Gintoki’s hair is totally possible for a Bakumatsu samurai. Generally, we have a stereotypical idea of Japanese hair as very straight, perhaps a little bit wavy at the most. But there are and have been for a long time Japanese people with wavy or even curly hair. Both Edo period hairstyles and modern haircuts tend to hide how wavy that hair can get, but the following photos show that Gintoki is not alone in knowing the pain of a natural perm. 

Kuroda Kiyotaka. Satsuma commander, famous for convincing the Meiji government to spare the life of his opponent, Enomoto Takeaki.

Kishida Ginko, from Okayama, one of Japan’s earliest journalists, assisted with the Hepburn Japaenese-English dictionary in the 1850s and was busy in the 1860s on some of Japan’s first news publications. 

Nishi Amane, from Tsuwano, was a Rangaku student who was sent along with Enomoto Takeaki and Hayashi Kenkai to the Netherlands to study in the 1860s. 

Maebara Issei of Choshu, Kiheitai member in the 1860s. (Executed in 1877 as leader of the Hagi Rebellion.)

And let’s not forget

Sakamoto Ryoma of Tosa, incidentally the inspiration for Gintama’s other leading fluff-head.

P.S.  If you’re wondering why I collect pictures of curly-haired samurai, I have very curly hair myself. As Gintoki says, it can be a pain. 

So first off, I’m feeling a lot better than I was earlier tonight, if you guys were worried.

Second off, two of my best friends met tonight and I was so terrified that their personalities wouldn’t mesh but then they got along really fucking well? So that’s awesome.

Lastly, I’m REALLY FUCKING SATISFIED by how poofy and wavy and gorgeous my hair gets after I go dancing.

Hi! I find your blog very interesting and I agree with a lot of things you say. I'm Kazakh but I myself look Russian (I'm 100% Kazakh. Kazakhs looked Slavic before the Mongol invasion). When I moved to the US, people began telling me that I was culturally appropriating Kazakh culture. I find it weird that if a person doesn't fit a "look", they're not considered to be a part of that group. They also asked my sister (she looks more Mongolian) if she felt that my "whiteness" made her feel bad.

Thanks for sharing, I’m sorry to hear that. This is a wrongful invalidation of identity that happens when we allow ourselves to be so forcefully restricted to the white/non-white or POC dichotomy, where certain cultures are arbitrarily classified as “non-white” and thereby, you having features that look “white” or “European” means you must be appropriating that culture in question. In part, I think this tends to happen in the US because its system of privilege is very colourist, whereas outside the Americas, it is ethnicity based. The colourist systems fails to account for diversity within an ethnic group or region. 

It forgets that genetically and culturally, there is no area where Europe suddenly ends and Asia begins. It fails to account for how ancient invasions and the common African origin of humans mean many modern ethnic groups are made up of a mosaic of haplogroups. It forgets that the first person with the fair skin mutation most Europeans have today was Indian or Middle-Eastern- it caught on more in Europe because it conferred a much bigger advantage. But it is the reason many, many non-Europeans have light skin. It forgets that many ethnic groups cannot be classified so simply as “white” or “non-white”. This binaristic dichotomy is reductionist. 

There is this weird tendency to claim certain features as being “white”. As far as I know, all my recent ancestry is East Asian but people have asked me if I’m mixed because of my wavy hair and facial features, like how my eyes look. I get that wavy hair like mine isn’t common among East Asians but the truth is the Han ethnic group absorbed a lot of other groups like Austronesians and Central Asians over 4000 years. Our DNA is far from pure and uniform. 

Racialised identities are not proper tools to classify ethnic groups to begin with because race is a social construct.
