Hi ladies I am looking to switch up my hair from drugstore brands that I have tried in the past and was looking for some advice. I currently have medium length hair that I am growing out over the summer. My hair is constantly dry no matter what I am using to clean it and lately has felt always greasy too. Recently I have been switching between different brands once they start to leave my hair so greasy and lacking in moisture. I also itch a lot on my scalp which seems really weird. I have gone between Paul Mitchell, Garnier to the Loreal line and at this point I am ready to get something better. I have tried everything so I am thinking it is time to have a salon quality routine now. I have thick, coarse, dry hair that I do color twice a year at most. I would really love shiny, healthy hair that doesn't look so dry and damaged all the time.
Hi guys! For starters, I don't really do much of anything to my hair. I'm not good at it, and I am lazy. I love doing my makeup but spending a lot of time on my hair is just so tedious in my mind. I have really, really oily hair (or, let's say oily scalp). I also have very oily skin, which is all due to genetics. Diet may play a role, but no matter what, I will always have to deal with more oil than most people. So because of that, I use a clarifying shampoo daily. This may sound like too much to a lot of you but I assure you that it is completely necessary to not look like a greaseball. I use random conditioners because I haven't found one I really like. I use that from just below my skull and down. If I do use it any higher, it only makes the situation worse. In any case, my hair usually looks like crap. It gets like poofy,or when it's less humid, almost kind of stringy? It's just not soft and smooth. I have fairly straight hair but if I air dry (which I always do) and don't touch it too much I can keep decent waves. But I just want something to keep it smooth but not greasy. Just soft and not frizzy or poofy or like I've been standing in Florida heat all day. Please help!
Ladies! (and men!) I'm the MOH in a wedding this Saturday and finally decided how I'm going to wear my hair. My question for you is how much of a difference does a 1/4 inch make in curling irons? I have a 1 1/4 curling iron as well as a chi flat iron that I use to curl my hair. I'm going to buy another smaller curling iron so that I can have a little variety in the curls and so they last longer (my hair is super long). Would there be any point in buying a 1 inch iron, or should I go for the 3/4 inch to notice a difference in curl size?
So I am ready to bite the bullet and purchase a high end blowdryer since I blow my hair for work and school almost every day. I've been pretty overwhelmed by all the options and reviews, any suggestions? I was thinking of purchasing from sephora but I am open to other suggestions... Thanks <3
It's been a year since my last cut. My hair is a virgin, and its long. I do not dye, blow dry, or use many products on my hair, except this dry hairspray which is only spray where my bangs are (like bumble and bumble drysprun.) I rarely get split ends.And lately I noticed that my hair is now really rough at the ends and knots are formed quite often. I love my darn hair, but now I have know idea what to do. I use the brand alterna- bamboo abundant volume, both shampoo and condition. I always/usually tie my hair in a bun. Is there any suggestions of a good hair product that I could use that'll resolve it or should I go ahead and get it cut? Any good bumble and bumble products?
Can anyone suggest a hair care line for hair that has become dry/brittle from medications?? I have color treated hair & I flat iron but since I started on cabergolline (pituitary tumor)& off/on HRT & testosterone gel because my levels are low. Menopause & lots of hormonal things happening. Looking forward to any suggestions
I know this may sound silly but I can't figure out what my face shape is:/. I wanna get my hair cut and want a haircut that will flatter my face but regardless of all the sites that tell you how to figure out your face shape I'm kinda lost. I guess I'm not good at shapes?
I'm not sure I should trust those pesky bloggers, they seem to be biased about curling irons So I am asking you, which one is your favorite for loose beach waves? I have a Hot Tools that works really well, but it's not a wand.
Hi! Does anyone know if Sephora ( or any company) sales a product that helps hair grow when you have lost it due to Chemo? Not looking for a miracle product but a product that might help speed the process up and doesn't cost a Arm and Leg, I can only afford to lose one limb at a time! lol!
Hey Everyone, I've been diagnosed with PCOS about 8 years ago. Hirsuitism has always been major problem for me. I have thick, coarse facial hair with a fair skin tone whack makes it worse as its extremely visible. I am so sick of trying various methods in vain whether its waxing, shaving, or threading.I have extremely sensitive skin, and whenever I try any of the above stated methods it always results in a rash that refuses to go away for at least a few weeks! Laser would not work for me as my hormones are out of balance which would not provide me with decreased hair growth let alone permanent hair loss.I'm at my wits end and have only one option left which is epilation..has anyone in a similar situation tried it without resulting in breakouts or redness? I'm not too sure as to whether I should purchase one as I'm not sure whether it would suit my skin. Any advice is welcome let me know if there are any other methods I can try
My friend has thick, wavy, coarse hair. Her sister stole her Chi straightener to take to college and she was asking me if I knew of any better straighteners to cut down on the time it takes her to straighten her hair. Features she likes: -heat control -gentle-ness on hair (not too much damage, but she does use heat protectant) -lower than $150 in price She also likes to curl her hair with it. I'm kinda out of my league here, so thanks in advance!
I want to purchase some hair care on Amazon since it is almost half the retail price on the company's website ($70 vs $150). However, I've heard before to not buy any hair or skin care from amazon because the sellers replace the real product with things like Suave or Dawn and sell that to you. What do you think, do you purchase from Amazon?
A friend of mine (no, seriously) underwent chemo a couple of years ago and her hair has been growing back, as she describes it, thin and with limp curls that just fall and stick to her head. She's at a loss for what to use to give more lift at the roots and more body and manageability to the rest. Any thoughts?
Kevin just bought the Drybar Mai Tai Spritzer Sea Salt Spray and we got a little spritz happy in the office. It smells so good! Kevin has tighter curls and I have more loose waves, but I think this sea spray looks great on both styles of hair! What do you think? Who wore it best? Have any of you tried this spray? What do you think?
Hi! I am having dandruff and dry scalp for quite a long time. I've tried drug store products before such as L'Oreal and John Freida. Unfortunately it didn't work as well as I thought. Are there any recommendations in terms of home remedies or beauty products that people would like to suggest to me? Thanks!
Does anybody have the same problem like me? I have been growing out my hair, it is by my waist now. It feels so heavy and I am having headaches. When I put in a bun, it gives me a headache too. I really like to have a long hair style so I can play with it and curl it. I have a very thick hair And I have never experienced this much headaches like before
Hello, lovely community members! I am in search of a boxed hair dye that will give me a bright and vibrat but natural-looking, coppery red color -- one without too many cool/burgundy tones. The pictures I linked to show approximately what I have in mind. I am a natural auburn and have already been dying my hair red (the product i was using has been discontinued), so I don't intend to bleach my hair before coloring it. Recommendations would be appreciated!
Just curious to see if anyone's used Macadamia Natural Oil's Flawless? It's supposedly like Wen. Wen didn't work for my oily scalp and dry ends, but I'm still drawn to trying this with the promise of bouncy hair (just did some bad damage to my hair this week from coloring). Anyone have experience with it or heard good things?
I have no idea how to handle my hair. I really want to buy better products for my hair, but have no clue where to start. I can't seem to find any hair regimen that would attack every issue going on with the situation growing out of my head. I have fine, straight hair, that air dries crazy frizzy, and acts like it thinks may be just a bit wavy. My scalp is dry, my roots get oily very easy, and have a ton of fly-aways that refuse to stay down. I haven't dyed my hair in 3-4 years, but if I want to have hair that looks even a smidge better than the worst possible hair day in history, it needs to be blown dry, and flat ironed, because of how damaged it is... Creating more damage. Besides my roots, my hair is super dry, and damaged. But if I try to use a product to help smooth my hair, the dry damaged parts also get oily. My hair, also, will NOT hold a style. It looks really good, sometimes, when I curl it. For about 20 minutes. Another thing, even if I found the right products for my hair, I wouldn't know how to go about using them. Is hair like make-up (not that I know how to work with that either, but that's another post)? Like a primer and a concealer, should I wait a certain amount of time before I use a certain product? I, obviously, did not draw well from the hair gene pool. I'm about to come to the conclusion that the only thing to do, would be to shave it all off... Even though I'm nearly 100% positive that my head would be one of those weird lumpy shaved heads. Please help! Side note- Can you curse in these Q&A's? Because if anything really needs to be cursed at, it's my hair.
Hello all, I am looking for a shampoo for my oily roots. but a conditioner for dry ends. I have hair that goes to my bra and is not color treated. Also, I am allergic to Panteen and Herbal Essences, and Wen didn't work for me. Thank you.
So, I dyed my hair teal the other day (though thanks to the bleaching it came out more green). I've been getting plenty of polite compliments, but I feel as if it's more of "Wow, you're courageous enough to dye your hair crazy colors!" rather than "Wow, that color looks amazing on you!" Every time I look in the mirror I'm just not happy with it. Should I shampoo it a bunch to make it fade before I strip it, or should I just strip it?
I need a good recommendation for something that'll give my hair volume. I have straight, fine hair and I'm very low maintenance when it comes to my hair- I just come out of the shower and like to walk out of the door. I need a spray that will give me volume without having to blow dry or style my hair. Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated!
Can anyone recomend a good shampoo and conditioner? I am trying to grow my hair out, and I know if its much healthier it will look better. I do know there isn't anything I can do or buy to grow it faster, but I know if its healthier that can help it out a bit. Plus, I hate frizz, dryness, split ends and I have all of that.
hi I have a problem with my hair is that when I use a straightener or a blow dry a meat like smell comes out and my sisters always tell me that I have a meat smell and my scalp smells so oily I don't know why some tell me that it's a hormone please help
I used to always bleach my hair out and do crazy hair colors (like, full head of either red, blue, purple, yellow... I think the most creative I got was pink with blue stripes...) but I stopped doing it 10+ years back.. Some sorta failed effort to grow up? I dunno, didn't work out. So anyhooz, I got an itch for the last few months to put in some color, pink of course, because that's my favorite! And I had this idea for just how I wanted to do it. Not the full head of crazy colors like back in the youthful days, but something a *tad* more grown up and hopefully stylish... A little effort, if you will--Not just weird for the sake of being weird! I was also debating getting a haircut so even if it came out completely craptacular, I figured it wouldn't matter I could just cut it off. Well, I did the color job this evening. I'm psyched. No haircut!
I really love using Aveda's Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother, but I would love to find something more accessible and inexpensive than $25. I know I don't want to go ultra inexpensive because then I will probably not have a great quality product. Can anyone make a recommendation?
