I normally use a GHD but the one I had for 2 years died, and I purchased the classic flat iron. The quality wasn't there so I decided to try something new and purchased the T3 single pass. I tried it the minute I got home on dry hair with heat protector on from the morning. It made "schh" sound but honestly, I thought it was their technology.. but then my hair started smelling funny and the iron started "steaming" (this is on the lowest level of heat too) when I washed my hair the next morning, my hair was soo fried and damaged that I couldn't even comb through. I wore deep conditoning treatment for 2 hours, washed it, still the same. This morning, I put on conditioner on my entire hair... and still nothing is different.. no improvement whatsoever. If its just the ends, I would just cut it off, but its the entire outer layer of the entire length... In Korea, there is such thing called "Repair magic straightening" that I don't think reverse the damage, but mask it.. is there something similar? or is there anything I can do?
I have coarse-thin hair that is pretty damaged due to bleaching & heat styling. Two biggest struggles are lack of volume & really dead-looking, unmanageable ends. Not sure if I should try the restore or full line, or maybe even the PHD...any suggestions from those who have used them??
Whenever you see models, they always have amazing hair after getting out of the ocean or the pool. My question is whenever i get into the water and come out my hair frizzes especially at the top and its like I have an afro. My hair is normally wavy but blow dry it and sometimes straighten it. Is there anything I can apply to my hair to keep the frizz down after I get out of the water and am sitting on the beach (since i won't have a blow dryer on me)
I'm somewhat of an ingredient snob when it comes to what I'm putting on my hair, I research the ingredients in products so I know exactly what I am putting on my hair. I use the Onesta Hydrating Shampoo and Hydrating Conditioner, I've loved them for a few years but am looking to switch it up. I love how the shampoo has a lot of botanical ingredients. The conditioner has silicones in it, and I want something that is free of silicones, sulfates and parabens. I have heard about alterna cavier but I know the conditioner has silicones in it. So my current routine is shampoo with the Onesta, condition rinse it out, co-wash with living proof curl conditioning wash then finish with the detangling rinse. I style with prime style extender, restore targeted repair cream, curl cream, no frizz spray and I use Josie Maran Argan Oil on my ends. I also use the Night Cap a few nights a week too. And I know that there are no sulfates, parabens and silicones in those. My hair needs a lot of moisture, so I need something that is moisturizing without silicones, sulfates, parabens, and heavy oils. When I say no silicones, I'm talking about something without dimethicone, dimethiconol and amodimethicone. My hair also loves living proof products. I have 2b/2c, high porosity, thick hair. I can not under any circumstances use any Deva products. Any product recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
A couple of months ago, I went and got copper strips in my hair. I had never dyed my hair before and was very upset with the job so I bought a box dye of intense black red (or something similar) and it just developed a red sheen on top of my hair. I want to dye my hair dark again, but will that get rid of the strips?
When I got married, my hair stylist used some kind of setting powder in lieu of hairspray. It was NOT like dry shampoo hair powder, but like a product for hold. It didn't leave my hair my hair sticky or glossy and my hair stayed curly for DAYS! Anyone know what this stuff is actually called and where I can purchase some for another special occasion? I can't seem to find it through googling..
Hi all, I have been wanting to get my haircut...but not sure which style to go with. the latest trend i have seen is the LOB which i have seen on Kim Kardashian, Diana Madison, Kirsten Cavallari and Nicole Polizzi. I have seen all these celebs/people have their hair cut into a LOB. I have very thick, heavy. frizzy, wavy hair. I have managed to grow it out and it is sitting right at my chest (almost close to my breasts sorry lol). The last time I went for a cut was almost 8 months ago because I was trying to grow it out because I have been wanting long hair for such a long time. But now that I am back to work after mat-leave, in the mornings when I wash my hair it is so thick and heavy and it takes so much time to blow dry and then straighten thereafter. So do you guys think that a LOB is the way to go? Would definitely be less blow drying time and possibly straightening time too. What do you all think I should go for? I am open to all kinds of suggestions to take my stylist and show different pictures to achieve a look i want. I am going to take pics of the above mentioned celebs to get an idea. But would love for some feedback from you all...people post and give great comments and suggestions here lol Any suggestsions? If you want to post pics with what you are talking about definitely do that so it helps me out and i can add it to my collection of "haircut idea's" i have saved lol thanks all! can't wait to see and hear all the suggestions.
My hair is really fine and thin and gets oily easily. By the end of a workday, my roots and the hair towards the top of my head looks oily, flat and gross. I want to go out at night with my hair down but don't have time to wash it again. Is there a product (like a dry shampoo or something) that will make it look like I washed the top of my hair when I didn't and might add a little volume too? Thanks!
So I wash my hair every other day and I use clarifying shampoo and no conditioner.. knowing that is supposed to help w/ the oilness. However, my hair still gets really oily. Can you recommend any products that can help? Please help!
I am curious. I washed my hair EVERY SINGLE DAY for most of my teen years and early 20's. Now into my early 30s I am washing every other day. Which for the most part, helps extend my highlights that i pay entirely too much for every 8 weeks! lol
I have thick shoulder length brown hair that is straight. Every time I use the curling iron the curls never stay for too long. I've tried hairspray but it makes my hair feel like dry straw. What could I do to make the curls stay?
Has anyone tried and compared Bumble and Bumble's Surf Foam Wash shampoo to John Frieda's Beach Blonde Cool Dip shampoo? I have tried B&B and know I like it, however it is a tad pricey. I love their new Surf Infusion spray compared to the original, so I'm not so interested in John Frieda's spray, despite it being a cult classic in its own right.
Do any of you guys know what kind of haircut Diana Madison has? She is an entertainment entrepreneur...and i love her new haircut she recently got. I have been wanting a different cut and came across this. Looks similar to Kim Kardashian's just not sure...
I recently chopped off my long hair to a layered bob in order to donate it. However, due to my hair's natural texture, I'm having a really difficult time styling it because my hair is so fine and stick straight and I'm trying to achieve the messy, beachy look to make the bob look more modern. I've tried some mousse and salt sprays from Aveda, Redkin, and Lush and within an hour my hair falls flat with just the ends curling up. Anyone with a similar hair texture-- have you found a salt spray that works well for you and actually lasts? Or is there another type of product I should be looking into?
I have fine/wavy hair, that i constantly struggle with, because of the fact that i struggle with heat damage and breakage and trying to combat an extremely oily scalp. I've currently cut down to washing my hair two or three times a week. I am looking for a shampoo and conditioner that will help me deal with my oily scalp and heat damage without weighing it down. Dry shampoo recommendations also. high end or drugstore.
I have very thick hair and it takes a very long time to blow dry my hair. I need some sort of spray or balm to put in it to make this process go faster. I know it's out there I just don't know what it's called or where to find it. I was hoping sephora would have something I'm looking for but I can't seem to come up with anything. I don't have the time to let my hair dry naturally. Thank you.
While I don't normally put too much stock in beauty "rules," I have read a few times recently that if you have brunette hair, your eyebrows match your haircolor or be 1-2 shades lighter than your hair color. I have very dark brows naturally. Right now, both my hair and brows are natural, and as you can see, my brows are several shades darker than my hair color. Does this look too harsh? Should I look into lightening my brows? (Honestly, the thought kind of terrifies me.) I have a hair appointment today and I am also going to get thoughts from my stylist, but thought I would also throw it out to the ladies here. What do you think? Thanks!
I have always been curious about the Hairfinity supplements but never felt I could shed 24$+shipping (to Canada) for one bottle that is supposed to last only one month. But if it REALLY works, it can be worth trying... Has anyone taken the Hairfinity Supplements ? What are your thoughts ? did you have any side effects ? Thanks
So, my Chic Week purchase is likely to be a new curling iron. I have not owned one in years (I'm an old school hot roller girl when I don't just go au naturel with the waves). It's time, though. Looking for someone larger than 1", ideally more like 1.5". Was considering the Amika Switch Starter Kit with the 1.5" barrel added on. Seems like a good way to get different sized curls from one product, more or less. (Might eventually get the Beach Waves barrel, too.) Thoughts? Suggestions of alternates in the 1.25" - 1.5" range?
I have long, thick hair but it is also pretty fine. I am in need of a good shampoo and conditioner recommendations! I need something that wont make my hair fall flat and keep it clean longer (I wash my hair about twice a week)
help? i am 38 and have been told by several doctors over the last several years that i most likely have lupus, but i won't agree to have the "official" tests done until i can obtain life insurance to protect my daughter. I am 99.95% sure the doctors are right since every time my body does something weird, i look it up and it is listed as a lupus related thing. I have never been vain, and have pretty low self esteem, with the exception of my hair. Of course, it has almost all fallen out over the last 2 years, ever since i almost died from pancreatitis (most likely lupus caused). Now, i have maybe 1/4 the hair I had, and every time I get stressed, i loose more. Is there a product that can help reverse this, or am i better off trying to find a wig or extensions? any advice is welcome and really, really appreciated.
I am completely new to hair extensions and need some help! I recently cut my hair just above my shoulders, which I am not fond of. I have been thinking of ordering hair extensions. Has anyone bought from My Fantasy Hair? I like what they have thus far as they have different lengths. I want either 14" or 16". Would 150 grams be enough? I obviously would not want it to look tacky looking like I do have extensions in. If someone could help me out I would really appreciate it as I am a COMPLETE newbie!!!! Thanks
