I'm sorry to bother y'all but I am looking for advice on haircuts for fibromyalgia. I still want to look feminine and pretty but would like something low maintenance that I can curl or leave relatively straight.

      Get it layered! Takes off so much of the weight but helps it look more voluminous and if you have the slightest of curl/waviness it brings them to the front.

      I have a medium bob that's shorter in the back than the front. It's long enough to style, but short enough to require little maintenance. I don't have the resources to go to a salon, so I keep it up myself... it's really easy. I just pull my hair back into a low ponytail and cut it off to the desired length. Personally, I dye it a deep red or other jewel tone for a unique look.

        @faerywyrm that sounds beautiful. I have gone for a medium bob too. It feels so much lighter and doesn't tickle my back at night. So happy I chose this length 💕💕 the colors sound lovely too. I'm currently trying to get this black mostly out of my hair then plan on going a fun color again 🤗

          @BethEntrekin the bright dark dyes will cover up the black just fine... my favorites are ruby and amethyst.

      I just colored my hair black. It goes with my a line bob. It's not perfect (home job), but i love it. It's just long enough to be feminine but short enough to be manageable.

      I have an asymmetrical pixie/bob cut with a side part and side shave and my partner helps me lighten and dye my hair vibrant pink but... If you don't want something so edgy, I used to really like having a stacked bob with layers to keep hair off my neck but it was still longer and feminine in the front. I also like having short bangs because I have a larger forehead but I also don't like hair in my eyes. I'm lucky because my hair is naturally wavy or I can use smoothing cream and wear it straight. It's fun! Good luck!

        @DragonflyHKD I have my sides shaved and the top permed similar to what you're talking about. It looks feminine but I was definitely going for a punk aesthetic. Lol

      I have a very sensitive scalp. I can't put anything in my hair for a long time or I will migraines. What I do is put electric rollers in my hair. My shoulder is messed up, so I can't use a curling iron. Sometimes, I end up spraying the Icy Hot Pro on my shoulder, too. I take my time to put them in and why they are in my hair. I do my makeup to keep my mind off of it. My hair will last for 3 days, and I use dry shampoo, too. The rollers aren't in for more than 5-6 minutes. It's quick and easy.

One user mentioned that they had to chop off their long hair due to the added stress of its weight, which helped them. They kept it slightly long enough to still pull it back or put a bun on the top of their head. Dividing the hair and having two braids or ponytails, spreading out the weight, and keeping them low hanging also helped until they decided on a short haircut.
