Dry shampoo for red colored hair
I have seen many threads about dry shampoos and which are best for different scalp and hair type, but haven't found anything regarding thin, color treated, especially red hair.  If anyone has a recommendation I would love to hear it, including pointing me to an earlier conversation a missed.  Thanks for your time.

Need routine for 3a curly hair
I have long, thick 3a hair that I really can't stand managing. My curls tend to be dry, frizzy, and undefined. Oddly, when I wear it straight it looks shiny and healthy. I've worn my hair in a wet top-knot for the last three months due to the heat and humidity and amount of time required to style my hair straight. Additionally, I wear a surgical hat all day; it leaves me no motivation to "do" my hair. I'd like to find a routine that allows me to style by diffusing or air-drying and will last 2 days with products that refresh curls. I can't skip washing more than one day since I have an oily scalp. I'm using Lush Curly Whirly shampoo but am open to a new conditioner. For me, Lush American Cream was lackluster. I prefer a conditioner that I can feel providing more slip and detangling. I've tried so many that feel like I put nothing on my hair. I've also tried DevaCurl, Ouidad (albeit, not all), and B & B styling products...all were disappointing. I prefer not to individually wind all my curls...considering my hair is under a hat all day anyway. I just hate looking homeless when I take it off. I know I'm asking a lot here

A replacement for Wen?
I LOVED Wen, but I see Sephora no longer carries it.  Is there a replacement for it that works like it does?  I have never been as happy with my hair as I have been with Wen, so I'd love to find something very similar.

I buy Wen from QVC. The formula of the Wen from QVC is different and actually better, than the formula that Sephora used to sell that was manufactured by Guthy-Renker.  see post

IGK Live Hair Consultation on 3/22
I am excited to announce our first ever Live Hair Consultation on BeautyTalk! Mark your calendars because this Wednesday, 3/22 from 10 am - 2 pm PST, the founders of IGK will be on BeautyTalk answering all of your hair questions.    This probably sounds similar to Live Chats and that's because it is. The difference is that Live Consultations are personalized to your hair and much longer than a Live Chat (FOUR hours). Because everyone's hair is different, we are encouraging participants to upload a photo of their hair along with their question. What we want is for you to feel like you're getting the (virtual) salon treatment so show them your hair and tell them about your hair type and hair goals for the best advice! The Founders of IGK are a group of four talented hairstylists who really know their stuff so they  can help you master your frizz, give tips on curling your hair or even give advice on the right cut for your face shape.      Be sure to follow the link below this Wednesday, 3/22! We'll be live from 10 am - 12 pm PST:  http://community.sephora.com/t5/Ask-The-Experts/Li ve-Hair-Consultation-with-IGK/m-p/2727916   See you there!

How to get a high ponytail that STAYS
So I see tutorials on how to create gorgeous high ponytails with volume. I can not seem to master this.  When I pin the poof it always falls flat within seconds and the ponytail always sinks down and doesn't stay high.  Any advice?  I've seen stylist videos where they use this tool where it's like a hair band with bobby pins on the side. I'm so curious about this.    Thanks in advance

fine breaking hair
I had two balayage treatments 4 months apart and my hair has been breaking at the mid shaft since then.  My hair is fine and straight and my hair was lightened with bleach. I rarely use heat styling and use a UV protectant spray and Marrakesh oil after showering. I shampoo/condition every 2-3 days with Joico's KPak Colour Therapy shampoo and conditioner.  I need advice on a leave in conditioner or other treatment to help my hair stop breaking!    Thanks!

Living Proof vs Moroccan Oil
Hi,   I switched from Kerastase to Living Proof about 2 years ago.  At this time I was dying my hair red.  Living Proof has been great for my hair.  No split ends, etc.  Last year I started going really gray so you guessed it - I'm dying my hair blonde.  I know going blonde is harsher on my hair and I'm having flyaway and frizz issues.  My hair is naturally wavy.  I've been reading on Moroccan oil and it seems to be a miracle product.  Would Moroccan oil work for me? I really need something to cut down on my frizz - what would you recommend.  Preferably sulfate free.   Thanks,

Seriously Heat Damaged Natural Hair
I've been natural forever but up until a few years ago struggled with excessive straightening. Now I usually only straighten my hair November- April. After my previous flat iron my hair will not curl. I've tried DIY masks and deep conditioners. Nothing is working. I refuse to big chop has anyone else ever experienced this after just one flat iron? I was using a new flat iron the NUME I can't remember which one I gave it away after this experience.

DevaCurl Issues!
I started using DevaCurl No Poo and One Condition in early January and used it until about a week ago. My hair was gorgeous but I wasn't able to get my hair really clean and developed some crazy dandruff which I've NEVER had a problem with before. I also noticed that I was shedding more hair than I was used to and that my hair seemed to be thinning a little. The shedding seem to get worse and that is the main reason that I stopped using it. When I switched back to Ogx coconut curls I was no longer shedding like crazy. Has anyone else had either of these issues while on these products?

help for fine wavy hair
HI all, I have wavy hair that is also fine (not coarse at all) and there is a lot of it total. My issue is that it gets frizzy and out of control but all the curl or wavy hair products I have used make it look and feel dirty.  So far I have tried curl diva- dirty feeling, and big sexy hair- frizzy from Sephora.  Do people have any other options?  I would like for it to feel and look clean but not like I just rolled out of bed.  I currently don't blow dry, just finger comb and go.  I also wash every three days.    Thanks!

Natural Hair Growth After Chemo
hey guys, so i was talking to my dad and he's been trying to get more hair regrowth. he always had a full head of hair (he's why my mane is so lustrous lmao) even after chemo a while back, but he still wanted to try to get more regrowth if he could. the only thing is that he's the opposite of me and wants to keep things natural with no "chemicals". are there any products anyone could recommend that won't scare him off by sounding too sciencey? lol. even stuff like hairbrushes would be great.  i've never needed to delve into the world of hair growth because i've always had too much of it tbh .

In need of new shampoo for thick, dry, curly hair that I normally wear straight
Hi,    I have extremely thick, dry and naturally curly hair that literally looks like Hagrid from Harry Potter if I don't style it correctly.  I have been trying to grow out my hair so I have been using the Mane n Tail shampoo for about a year and  I think I have developed an allergy and have been getting a really bad rash on my neck.  I am looking for a hair product that is hydrating for curly, damaged hair.  I usually wear it straight because it is extremely hard to manage when it is curly and it hates any kinds of blow dryers so in the winter it is almost never straight.  Does anyone have any recommendations
