Hair loose or braided at night?
My hair is finally getting to a longer length and I'm wondering what everyone does when they go to bed.  Do you leave your hair loose and flowing or do you braid it or put in a scrunchie?

Just purchased Mason Pearson hairbrush -- omg!
(I know there's an older thread for Mason Pearson hairbrushes, but I thought I would start a more updated one....and more specific to my concern.)   So, I just bought a Mason Pearson hairbrush online (Anthropologie) since I thought it would be helpful with my hair that's starting to tangle as it grows longer. However, it just hit me that I spent way too much money on a hair brush. Can someone reassure me that I wasn't insane for this? Are these brushes really worth it? Did they change your life? Do you feel like your hair has improved with it? Or is this just a spoiling-thyself purchase? Am I terrible person? Haha...I'm only half laughing about that...

What's your favorite hairbrush?   I currently have the Wet Brush and like it, but looking for new options.

Shampoo & Conditioner for Dry Hair?
My current L'Oreal shampooo & conditioner are almost out and I'm looking to get something that will actually help my hair look better. I've tried many hair products over the years, but have never fallen in love with anything.   My hair is a little longer than shoulder-length and very thick. It's pretty dry and I have a lot of frizz and static, as you've probably noticed in my WCC photos. I've never dyed my hair so I don't need any products for color-treated hair. You should probably also know that I use Neutrogena's T-Gel shampoo about 2-3 times a week for my seborrheic dermatitis.   Here are a few of the S&C I've tried: Bumble and bumble Thickening - I've bought this before and it did nothing for my hair. Alterna Bamboo Shine - also wasn't impressed with this one. Carol's Daughter Monoi - really liked this and it foamed a lot for a sulfate-free shampoo which was great. I only had a foil packet though so I'm not sure how I would like it after multiple uses  Ideally I would like to find a S&C without sulfates and parabens.   Do you have any recommendations on what I should use to help my dry and frizzy hair?

Products to tame thick, curly/wavy, frizzy hair?
I'm looking for new products to tame my hair once and for all! I have long hair (down to my waist nearly) that is very thick, curly/wavy, frizzy, and rather puffy! My hair is virgin and the only heat products I use on it are my straightener maybe once every two months.   I use Garnier Fructis Brazilian Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner and finger-comb my hair in the shower. I let it air-dry and apply John Frieda Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Cream on top and under my hair, trying not to run my fingers through my hair too much. I don't brush my hair besides the shower. I wash my hair everyday so I can reapply the products (my hair looks weird after I sleep in it and its dry).    I'm looking for products to control my hair and enhance my curls, without that crunchy feeling. The John Freida product I use works ok, but I have to apply large amounts of it throughout the day to get it semi-tamed. My hair gets especially poofy and I need to bobby pin sections back so I don't look like a lion! I would love to find a product that keeps it controlled. Any suggestions from ladies with similar hair types?

Best hair products for excess sebum?
I have pretty oily hair and what feels like tons of excess sebum plugs that I can just pull out at any given time (that's gross, I know, I'm sorry.) I've yet to find a shampoo or treatment that will help slow down sebum production. The only one I've seen that specifically mentions sebum is Jumping Juniper by Lush, but I don't have a Lush anywhere near me and I'm iffy on ordering something and having to pay shipping if there's something better or more accessible for me.   Does anyone know of any shampoos that help fight the oils that make the extra sebum?

Cruelty-Free Air Drying Products? Do they exist? Recommendations, please!
Okay, so I'm really looking for a product to use in my hair for air drying, and I was really interested in some of the Bumble and Bumble products, but they test on animals.   I have a LOT of long, straight hair, but the strands are really fine, so I hate to use heat. It also has a tendency to go flat and limp with heavy products.   I'd really appreciate any cruelty-free product suggestions. I'm horrible with hair, and I have no idea what to do with mine.   TL;DR - Light, cruelty-free product for airdrying hair, GO!

Mason Pearson Brushes... worth it?
Helloooooo! I'm thinking about purchasing a Mason Pearson brush. I've done some research but I haven't taken the plunge yet because of the price tag. The main reason I'm considering dropping that much $$$ on a brush is because I have an extremely sensitive scalp. I have large surgery scar on my scalp and whenever I brush my hair with my current brush I get chills down my spine! Not fun. I'm considering the Mason Pearson brush for sensitive scalp/fine hair. I'm wondering if any of you ladies have tried them? What are your thoughts on the "Rolls-Royce" (lol, read that in a magazine...) of brushes?

how can i curl frizzy curly hair for prom?
  So my younger sister would like me to curl her frizzy, bra length, curly hair like the picture attached. Maybe even a little bit for curlier not ringlets though. I can do my own hair but i just can' do others especially hers. My question is what products can i use to tame the frizz. flyaways, make it smooth on top and have the curls last forever.

Buyers remorse
I bought a GHD Air hair dryer and used it the other day. It definitely cut down on drying time. I only rough dry my hair before I style it, but it probably took 5 minutes for my shoulder length hair. My husband even commented on how quick it was.The dryer is a little heavy though. I'm finding myself still wondering if I should have purchased the Drybar Buttercup or the Bio Ionic 10x. I happened to snag a limited addition color of the GHD, and I wonder if I'll just get used to the weight. whwnever i have an expensive purchase like this I have some doubt if I bought the right item.

Can I Re-Dye My Hair So Soon??
Hi there. Just today I purchased and dyed my hair with the Clairol Natural Instincts hair color. Unfortunately, the color I chose was too light compared to what I wanted. How soon can I re-dye my hair? I'm thinking of waiting maybe 4-5 days. Since I'm going darker, not lighter, I'm hoping it won't be quite so damaging. Also, this was my first time ever dying my hair and my hair is usually very healthy as I rarely use heat on it. What do you guys consider to be a good wait time? Is less than a week too soon? Thanks!

Hair concerns
Hello Ladies and Gentlemen!   I have fine hair (but I was told I have a lot of it). Whenever I was my hair or brush it, there are always a few strands that get pulled out. My concern is slight hair loss and I really want to promote new hair growth. Also my scalp is itching and I have the tendency to scratch it and I get flakes. I often feel little bumps (acne?) on my scalp. I recently purchased Cerafill Anti-Thinning Solution shampoo and conditioner. I also bought Macadamia Professional Ultra Rich Moisture Oil Treatment and Wet Brush. I really like the oil and the shampoo seems to be doing its job but I am not sure. My scalp is this itchy (maybe it is just a habit I acquired?). Any ladies who can give me some recommendations? Should I see a doctor? Any opinions of ReTress?
