Products suggestions for frizzy hair
I have very thick, frizzy hair, and I like to air dry it sometimes. Does anyone know any products you leave in to smooth it, and leave it frizz free without my hair looking and feeling oily ?

Alterna mousse or Bumble and Bumble
I have fine just past my shoulders straight hair and am looking for a mousse to volumize. I'm torn between Alterna and bumble and bumble thickening mousse. Which will work best for my hair type?

How do i make stronger and longer?
I just recently cut my hair short as it was very long, and i just want to get the length back but also to strengthen it while its growing out. I just really would like my long hair back. It was very brittle before and i cut it so it would get rid of the damage on it because i was curling and straightening it, but it has almost been a year since i put heat on it before i cut it so it was getting a little better with not applying heat. Since i have cut it i have used heat once or twice. But also i've mostly been having a french braid in or a high loose bun. So is that good to be doing or just keep it down in hopes of growing it longer. I normally wash my hair 3 to 4 times a week. The shampoo i use is tresemme keratin smooth and also that conditioner, and after i sometimes will put a moroccan oil in it. Also my hair is very dark brown almost black in color, semi thick. Please help me! It would be greatly appreciated!

Volume for straight oily hair
I have straight and somewhat fine hair that gets oily/greasy quickly. I am going to Vegas in 2 weeks and I know that because of the humidity my hair is going to fall flat even faster.

I'd like to color my hair at home to cover up white hairs (never did it, as my hairdresser is great, but I won't be able to see him for a couple of months so I need a solution for the meantime).

hair care for daughter with fine hair
My 9 year old daughter has very fine hair and it gets stringy quickly. There was a drugstore shampoo (just a Dove brand) that worked well for her for a couple of years but I can't find it anywhere anymore so I think it was discontinued, and we've gone through quite a few inexpensive brands without finding anything else that works very well. I use a few different professional hair care products and I tried those on her but I have hair color and more heat damage so all my products are too heavy for her. We do blow dry her hair a few times a week. If anyone can recommend a lower to mid priced product line that will clean well enough to get out all of the sweat from gymnastics and playing in the dirt without stripping her hair, and a conditioner that will really condition without feeling heavy, I would really appreciate it! I think what we are using now is the worst one we tried all summer - if we don't find something better before school starts our early mornings are going to be terribly unpleasant as blow drying hair that is dry and sticky with residue is not going well!

Super Frizzy Curly Hair
Hey guys. I don't know if anyone can help me, but I have really frizzy, dry, sorta-curly hair. When I use the curling creme by KMS and a little cheap hair gel with a run of hairspray, my hair looks good for the day, but I've run out of KMS.   I'm fine with my natural texture, I just need something that will seriously control my frizz. I've tried everything, and honestly, the KMS worked great for a one day thing, and I wash my hair every other day or every three days.   I've been looking into the Josie Maran argan oil hair serum. Can anyone vouch for it? Or anything else?   Thanks!

What's actually the cleaning agent in Wen?
I just started using Wen and have mixed feelings...My hair is definitely softer, but kind of heavy. Not sure how to explain.   While I give it some time before deciding if I love or hate it, I'm wondering what's the actual cleaning agent in the product... There's alcohol in the formulation - is that it? Or the cleansing part is done just by the water? Any thoughts?

Top Flat Irons
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!

hair dyes
I have been wanting to dye my hair for awhile now and since I'm going to go see my girl beyonce slay the stage (YASSS!!!) I thought this would be the perfect time. My hair is naturally black and I'm not gonna go lighter cause I feel that I would look SUPER weird. So I'm guessing the color I should get is jet black cause thats all i can think of. I'm also on a budget so I probably won't hit up a salon and I'm just going a shade darker so I think it would be a waste of money. I wanted to know if there are any good drugstore or beauty store brand hair dyes? I also have thin asian hair that has no life if that helps. I plan to do this once and not keep it going but if i notice a change and i like it then hey maybe i will keep dyeing my hair. Thanks again!!!

Is Tria laser hair removal system worth it?
I hate facial, and hairs on my arms and legs. but its extra time and energy waxing and shaving them every now and then especially in the winter.    I've been eyeing the Tria hair removal system for a while, but I didn't know if they would work for sure or create uneven patches or hair growth.  plus the cost of it being $500ish, I was waiting until they upgraded further so its like all the flaws are corrected.  I also thought the "window" or the screen where laser lights come out was way to small and would take forever to do the entire leg..    Also I have a lot of peach fuzz on the sides of my cheeks. Can it work for those as well?

Need advice on hair products to use for cold rolling long hair
My 10 year old daughter has waist-length hair, that she would like to wear curly.  I have tried putting her hair in curlers, and having her sleep in them.  The curls have turned out beautifully, but her hair is so thick and long, that halfway through the day, the curls are drooping, from the weight of her hair.  Can anyone recommend a product or products to use when rolling her hair, to give her curls a bit longer life?
