am looking to naturally dye my whole head black using henna. If anyone has ever used henna to color hair, tell me of your experience, and the different techniques you have used. Also, where can I get quality henna powder in NYC.
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 currently have brown hair with balayage highlights and use the Medium Brown Anastasia Brow Wiz for my ashy brown hair. However, tomorrow i am dying my hair to a warm reddish brown color. I am wondering if you girls think I should change up my brow routine and start using the Auburn brow wiz in conjunction with my medium brown color? I'm nit picky about brows totally not matching hair color, and am just wanting additional opinions. The color is by no means fiery red!
I purchased this Japanese hair product from my salon the other day. $35, but I have seen it on Amazon for around $25. It's an AMAZING leave-in that makes your hair silky soft (and look at the bottle!). It also comes in a "light" version. If you really want to go nuts, they also make a hair oil (orange bottle) and a light version hair oil (yellow bottle). You can also get them shipped directly from their website from Japan, but it will take about 30-45 days for delivery. The description online says that it smells like apples, however, it smells like fresh laundry to me...kinda like a laundromat! Purchase it, you won't regret it ;-)
Has anyone tried and compared Bumble and Bumble's Surf Foam Wash shampoo to John Frieda's Beach Blonde Cool Dip shampoo? I have tried B&B and know I like it, however it is a tad pricey. I love their new Surf Infusion spray compared to the original, so I'm not so interested in John Frieda's spray, despite it being a cult classic in its own right.
I have always been curious about the Hairfinity supplements but never felt I could shed 24$+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
I want to get a new hair styling tool. I had been using drugstore versions up until now, mostly because I seldom used heat styling tools before. But as I am curling my hair more and more, I want to invest in a "nicer" product. To get an idea of what I am looking for: I have very flat, straight hair, currently mid-length, just below collar bone. If I just came out of the shower, it will literally look like it's been straightened. So the main purpose of me curling my hair is more for putting in some volume rather than the curls themselves (I do like curls too tho!) I have a curling iron and a straightener, and I find myself reaching for the straightener more for just putting in some messy curls. So after some research, I have narrowed my choices down to 3ish: 1. GHD classic straightener (225 CAD): lots of raves, seems versatile and durable. Given that I already love curling with a straightener, this looks very promising 2: GHD curve (295 CAD): I am looking at both classic wave and creative curl wands. Mostly inspired by Fleur de Force's review, I love how her hair looked with these. I don't have much experience with wands, but given that I love messy-ish big curls that just add volume, these look like a time saving way (and a little more fool-proof...I have to be a bit more careful with a straightener to make sure each curl comes out uniformly) 3: T3 world trio (255 CAD): Another one inspired by a you tuber (Tati btw, who raves about this). I love the fact that there are 3 barrels that lets me experiment more with different looks, and the white exterior is so pretty. But I have came across some reviews about T3 products dying after a year or two. Please give any insight you have! I really appreciate any input!
My oven just went up and flames and burnt all of my front hairs to a crisp. Thankfully, I'm fine, but my hair is not. The front hairs are basically all now an inch or less. Does anyone have any secret tips or products they know of to help hair grow back nourished and hopefully quick? I'm not looking to get romaine or anything like that but hopefully something extremely nourishing and moisturizing. Any help/ advice will be greatly appreciated. 😰
Hello my makeup friends, Long time no talk:/ I am looking at booking a private party at Drybar in Chicago for next summer with about 7 girlfriends for a long weekend away. Has anyone been to a private party that could share their thoughts? Good or bad is welcome! Thanks Ladies, XOXO Britt
Hello, fellow Sephora devotees. I have a question about a product that Sephora doesn't sell, but I was hoping some of you may have tried it in the past (or use it currently) and will thus be able to answer these questions. The product is the KQC Thermal Shine Spray, and I'm debating over purchasing it. So, let's brass these tacks, shall we? I have read that you can use the spray on wet AND dry hair, but what I can't find out is if the spray only works (i.e. makes hair glossy/shiny) if a heat tool is used on said hair in conjunction with the spray. Essentially, I want to know if I could use the spray on wet hair, let it air dry, and still get the wonderful glossy results as if I had dried using, say, a hairdryer. Or, if I could use the spray on already-dry hair and get the gloss without using a heated styling tool as well. Anything you all know about this spray would be greatly appreciated information! Thanks in advance.
Hi all. At one time I purchased a Phyto shampoo from Sephora that smelled like Coca-Cola. It was a dark, clear liquid and worked great. I didn't save the bottle so I only know the manufacturer. Can anyone help?
The other day I went to my local sephora and they had new things on the To Go section, they had a Wen Hair kit for $22. If you live by one, and you love this line or want to gift it or try it out for yourself, I'd recommend swinging by and checking to see if they have any or if they'll have any. Or you can also call and ask. Thought I'd mention it since I don't see it online.
Hello all, Just moved to Toronto and I'm looking for a hairdryer with a wattage of 2000 or over. Cannot seem to find one anywhere and my UK blaster won't work either. Please save me from having hair that looks like a badly made hat!! any suggestions?? Thank you
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?
Hey So I've always had very thick and very cource hair that is naturally very frizzy and puffy. Because my hair is very cource, it's also very dry on the ends. My hair is kind of straight, but it's also very, very kinky and flips out all over the place so it has a few loose waves. As I'm growing older (I'm now 15), my hair is getting harder and harder to manage as I get so many flyaways and it's so hard to put it in a ponytale, even. The last year or so I've been straightening my hair everyday and although my hair doesn't get especially damaged as it's so strong, it takes such a lot of time and effort, and I'd love to stop doing so but it looks crazy if I don't. I also dry my hair using a hair dryer, also I don't blow-dry it properly as it's very difficult on my hair and takes such as long time. Although heat is meant to cause more frizz, I find that if I let my hair dry naturally, it's even more crazy. My hair is quite dry but it tends to get a little greasy sometimes, so I tend to wash it every 2 to 3 days. However, I do find that it's shinier and more managable a couple of days after washing my hair. I'd love to put together a better hair care routine, but I don't what would work well on my hair! Any reccomendations, tips or ideas? Thanks so much ! Oh and I live in the UK if that helps productwise.
Just purchased the AgaVE Smoothing Trio & cannot wait to use it in the morning! I've been using Living Proof No Frizz & Perfect Hair day but went on the suggestion of the Sephora rep. Anyone out here in BT land try this set? If so, I'd love to hear your thoughts
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?
Hi! I am looking for a new shampoo and conditioner. I have a few items from Bumble and Bumble and I love them so I would like to stay with that brand. I am debating on the Let it Shine one or the Thickening one. I've been recommended both and just can't decide. What is your opinion on them? The length of my hair is roughly to the shoulders.. brown with some blonde highlights. Thanks
When you're getting out of the pool or just came back from a day at the beach your hair isn't always the prettiest. Here are my top product to keep your hair beautiful after you finish swimming: 1. Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil This product adds moisture and softness to your hair when the chemicals have dried your hair out 2. Bumble and Bumble surf foam shampoo and conditioner gives your hair nice beachy waves when its really flat 3. Wen replenishing treatment mist This product restores your hair after all of the salt and chemicals 4. Drybar detox dry shampoo This product just makes your hair feel clean again 5. Bumble and Bumble surf spray This product gives you great waves and covers up the dry flat hair that the beach gave you
So I did it. I got about six inches lopped off my hair and, while I wanted to go blonde right away, the lovely and skilled stylist suggested we take a multi-stage approach to keep my hair healthy, and lightened it up using balayage. Evidently, I won't need to have the color revisited for about eight weeks, at which point we'll add in more blonde. I'm new to balayage so was wondering if anyone else has experience with it and can I really wait eight weeks? I love the fact that my hair doesn't scream 'highlights!' and I just want to ensure I maintain this in the best possible way!
I have straight hair, and it gets super boring sometimes. What's your favorite way to curl your hair? I just don't really want to use curling iron, because my hair is thin enough and I don't want to damage it. Brands names are welcome too
Just brought a T3 compact Singlepass. The Ultra Chi was an option, but I wasn't sure if the Australian voltage would kill my Chi. What do you guys recommend for a universal voltage hair straightener? Australia voltage: 230 V 50 Hz I am not staying at a hotel, I will be in my family home.
