I recently purchased the T3 Whirl Trio curling want set and I have mixed feelings about it. It works just fine, but the metal foot that sticks out from the side of the tip of the barrel gets caught in my hair and it drives me nuts. I want a similar interchangeable wand set that has a smooth barrel tip. Any recommendations?
I was wondering if people had any ideas for a change in my hair. I'm not loving it at the moment. It normally looks like this: Spoiler (Highlight to read) No blow drying, no hot tools of any kind. Just my hair as it naturally occurs. No blow drying, no hot tools of any kind. Just my hair as it naturally occurs. And when I volunteer at the shelter and have to put it up, it's much easier to handle when I straighten it, like this. Spoiler (Highlight to read) I LOVE my hair right after my hairstylist blow dries it straight (which I can't do because my blow dryer is good, but not that good). Spoiler (Highlight to read) It also occasionally looks good naturally, but this is a very rare occasion. Spoiler (Highlight to read) And usually only when my bangs are a certain length. And usually only when my bangs are a certain length. I can't even tell what color my hair is, brown or blonde. XD But it is naturally wavy, often frizzy, thick, and very hard to control with barrettes and hair ties. It reaches my mid-back. Since I am not in college yet and not working yet, I usually just throw it up in a messy bun because I don't care. But I start college next semester, and I will be studying to hopefully become a vet tech. Not that hair is the most important part, but it needs to be out of my face when I'm at the shelter. (Today I was at the shelter, and my hair was in a ponytail but I had to stop several times to adjust my bangs because they were in my face.) If you have ideas, please reply! (Pictures of ideas welcome.) I will not cut it shoulders or above, and I won't dye it a "non-naturally occurring" color. I don't know what I want. New cut? Color? Something I can do to make my hair straight for a while? Should I grow out my bangs? Screech like a pterodactyl? If you've made it this far, thank you, and happy thanksgiving.
I'm taking the plunge of going blonde-er very soon and I'm seeking advice and product recommendations. I have not had my hair dyed in nearly two years and haven't bleached since high school, and even then it was a horrible out of the box shade that never worked for me. So I'm going to get it professionally done. [Hair Inspiration in the spoiler] Spoiler (Highlight to read) I am needing advice on: A shampoo & conditioner to replenish and restore on the days that I wash my hair. A shampoo & conditioner to help control/prevent brassiness. A really great hair mask again for replenishment and restoration. Anything else I possibly might need to know about caring for and up keeping. My hair is naturally very curly/wavy, fine but full. Any and all suggestions and tips are greatly appreciated
Hey BTers, help an impulsive but indecisive sister out! I have a hair appointment tonight supposedly just for a trim, but I'm having urges of "oh screw it let's just chop it all!" I've had a pixie before and said I'd never do one again just because growing it back out was such a pain, but I have a fantastic hairdresser now whom I trust to make that process easier if I end up going for it. So... talk me back from the edge or over it! Picture suggestions also welcome.
I have sort of a weird heritage; olive skin, light ash brown hair, blue eyes. I've always dyed my hair blonde... but I'm looking to do something different than just the classic platinum highlights. Any suggestions?? I'm wanting to switch to a color or color combo that compliments my olive skin tone.
I recently cut of 6 inches from my hair and have dyed it lighter, but it is really damaged now I keep getting regular trims, but I need some type of moisture repair mask, shampoo and conditioner that are good for blonde/ gray hair. Any help would be appreciated !!! Thank you!!
Hello, all. I've been wanting a new hair color for a long time, after going from a light blonde, to a medium brown, I've been thinking maybe a dark black, or maybe a cool gray, but I'm really not sure, as I've only done blonde and brown and I'm not very sure about what I'd want. I have a fair skintone, and green eyes, I'll add a picture, but I just wanted some opinions
I have natural curly hair which I am attempting to grow out healthily. With my hair texture (Japanese/Nigerian mix) I am quite prone to fairy knots, split ends and the whole nine yards. I've been dabbling with the "Search and Destroy" method, and everything that I've read emphasizes the importance of using high quality shears. What constitutes high quality? Does anyone have any recommendations for which brands and where I might be able to buy them? And apparently I need to learn how to proofread. I meant hair... not hear... (*>ω<*)
I have very long, naturally thinner hair and a few years ago I began using the Bumble & Bumble Thickening Serum and it was a miracle product for me and made my hair very noticeably thicker. I usually stock up on it during sales, so I haven't had to purchase one recently. I went to Sephora last week I saw they didn't carry it anymore, so I looked it up online and I can't find it anywhere, not even the B&B website! Does anyone know of a comparable product I could use instead? I really don't want my hair to go back to being thin and limp! Thanks everyone! (In case it's important, I still use the Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner almost every time I shower.)
I realllllly am in the need of a nice repairing leave in treatment maybe? I have loose curls and a little bit of frizz, I bleached my hair back in feb and I regret it, my hair is sooo dry and sooo frizzy and doesn't curl like it use to. HALLLLP ! pleaseeee
I've been using bumble and bumble straight shampoo and I love it. Im debating on whether to get the matching straight conditioner or a different one from their line? Or any other conditioners you love? The hair line for Canada is small-ish in Sephoras.. so hopefully its something we can get in store (cough*briogeo*cough)
My CHI Flat Iron is slowly dying on me lately, and only works when it wants to. I've had it for 10+ years and has lasted me a very long time. My next purchase I am looking into and have been eyeing for a very long time knowing that my CHI will die on me eventually is the GHD Flat Irons. There are like 5 GHD's: Platinum Professional Classic 1 Inch Eclipse Gold Professional 2 Inch Gold Professional 1 Inch I was interested originally in the Classic 1 Inch and have tried it before. I have thick, frizzy hair. Do all 5 of these flat irons do the same thing? I have read the descriptions and it just seems like to me the differences are that some have just 1 switch so it heats up to whatever temperature or others have the type of switch that you can adjust the settings or something. I want a GHD that makes my hair soft and silky. I have never tried any other one except the Classic. So, for those of you that have tried the other ones, are they just as good? And I have noticed there is a price difference in almost all of them. I am investing in a GHD because I have heard amazing things about it. I am not really interested in the other brands at Sephora, and the Sephora near me is 2 hours away in Winnipeg, so they may not even have some of these in stock when I go in to the City next weekend. Even when I check the availability in store option, it does say "it was available in the last 24 hours" but most of the time it never really is there at the store. Any suggestions and help on the differences would be awesome!!!
hello my loves.... I would love to say good morning but sadly it has not been. If those I have not met do not know me my name is Skye and I am a sophomore in high school, I am a shopaholic and makeup junkie to the max! Im just trying to trot my way through high school so I can move to L.A when im done, feel free to message me, I love new friends! anyway lovelies, so it was a sunny south florida day and my mother and I drive to the local salon that I have been going to for several years. I was going to get a subtle trim to cut off any "dead or split ends" that might have emerged since I haven't cut my hair in a year ( an exact year ago a different hairdresser had F'd up my hair and cut half of it off). I was greeted by a hairdresser who I never met before but she was very welcoming and kind and walked me to a empty seat. I told her EXACTLY what I wanted ( subtle trim, no length taken off) NOW, my beauties I will insert a picture of what my beloved hair looked like exactly a day before it was cut. I would also love to know if any of you think that there are split ends or noticable damage judging from that. okay so then she advised me to head over to the sink so the other lady could wash my hair and get it wet so it was easier to cut, I did, my hair was wet and I returned. At first the combed out then started subtly cutting off the little ends and tidying it up, I felt comfortable so I began looking through my phone as she was snipping and talking about her vacation. WORST MISTAKE EVER, within minutes of checking through instagram and texting my boyfriend where I was, I literally....literally..felt the wait of my hair had decreased and I looked up and no bish.no. HALF OF MY HAIR WAS GONE, and she was still talking like nothing was wrong! I said " um excuse me, what happened to my hair?" I had like this sickening feeling in my stomach because it looked exactly it did a year ago when a completely different hairdresser cut half of it off. she looked up and her poor little face looked kind of afraid and embarrassed so I just said "Its okay,Im just going to go now" so my mother saw and was instantly shocked and I just waited for her to pay and then drove home. as soon as I got home I cried for two hours. anyway im not even going to start some little pity party im jsut looking fro the best pills/products to grow it out, please lovelies. I literally look the same as I did a year ago and all my lovely grown out hair is gone. *Picture*
I hate to aedmit that I neglect my hair by using shampoo/conditioner from a brand that I know isn't good for my hair. I'm looking to change my shampoo and conditioner. I have oily hair; it's neither thick or thin but I have a lot of it. I have colored/bleached ombre hair so there is a bit of breakage. My hair gets EXTREMELY tangled after I shower. I currently use It's a 10 keratin spray to help brush through my hair after I shower. It is a life saver. However, I tried their conditioner and it didn't do much detangling for me. What are some good shampoo/conditioner I should try?
So I decided to go ahead and buy the Bio Ionic One Pass Iron over GHD's new Platinum one. Mainly in part do to functionality issues with my Eclipse (I had two that suddenly broke after less than a year's use ) and did'nt want to risk it happening again. Also, I did my homework and searched Platinum reviews and saw the negative ones were quite similar, death beep that overheats and never works properly again. I contacted GHD on why they never respond to the negative reviews , I found them to be very evasive with me almost like they new the design could have faulty issues. I new right then and there the Bio Ionic would have my vote, I found a lot of praise on this iron and several salons nearby highly recommend it and carry it. Moreover, I'd pick functionality over pretty packaging any day, I want to get my money's worth.
Originally I posted this in Ask the Experts but thought Hair was probably more appropriate. So... I have been thinking about getting the Bellami extensions. I haven't worn extensions in years but really have been thinking about them lately. The only ones I have used were from Sally Beauty (forgot brand and they no longer have them). They were human hair and over $200 but very nice. Has anyone used Bellami? If so, please share your thoughts.
I like the idea of washing my hair at night and sleeping with it in braids for waves in the morning. Problem is, my crown is a complete frizzy mess the next morning. I put anti-frizz cream in my hair at night before I braid, but what product can I use in the morning that will tame the frizz without requiring me to brush out all the waves I braided the night before? I have thin to medium hair that can't decide if it's curly or straight. I don't want something that will make my hair crunchy or still look wet. I'm after low maintenance with this styling approach!
I have naturally straight, somewhat thick, shoulder-length hair. It is impossible for it to hold a curl. Also, my hair does not have a lot of body. Is there a product that could help give my hair body and help hold curls? I just want to do all of the cute wavy hairstyles that are in style these days.
I am looking for hair products that will make my fine short wavy hair manageable and full of volume in a humid location for holidays. I usually blow dry and straighten it, then put hair spray on to hold. I want to be in the water and not be a slave to my hair... Any suggestions?
I need a new blow dryer. My last one was over 10 years old(I know) so I'm sure anything will work better! I'm wondering what YOUR favorites are! My main concern is Frizz. I'm contemplating between the T3 feather weight 2, and the drybar buttercup. any help is really appreciated!!
What I'm looking to do is pin up style hair with pin curls. I have super fine, somewhat thin hair straight hair. I know I need some sort of setting lotion or spray in before I put the pin curls in. Any suggestions for something that will give hold and body without making it sticky or oily?
So, I am 20 years old & I've been using clip in hair extensions for about 3 years now, which has REALLY taken a toll on my hair thinning & fallout (when i wash my hair) wise. My hair is damaged & has breakage from regular heat styling, & dying with box dye etc. I have naturally curly hair also that doesn't really have curl anymore, more just wavy. Looking for a shampoo/conditioner, treatmeant, anything really that might help my stressed locks?
