How often do you wash your hair?
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?

Q. Which Bumble and Bumble Blow Dry?
Hi! I'm currently deciding between two Bumble and Bumble Blow Dry products. The first one is their Straight Blow Dry: kuId=1376318 The second one is their All Style Blow Dry: skuId=1668037 I have coarse hair that's on the frizzy side, and has been dyed (think thick/coarse asian hair) and was just wondering what you guys recommend. Thanks for the help!

Q. How can I make my hair grow faster?
Back in late October I cut off 9 inches of my hair to donate to cancer patients for new wigs (locks of love program). I'm happy that I did this but I want my hair to grow long again. Any suggestions or tips on how to get hair to grow faster? Help would be much appreciated . Thanks!

Flat Iron Recommendations
Does anyone have any advice, or know enough to compare different types of flat irons? I'm wondering if all of the tourmaline/ceramic irons with adjustable heat settings are created equal.   After about 8 years of faithful service, my trusted Chi straightener appears to be on the fritz. I did a little research on flat irons, thinking that I was going to get a T3 (I bought the T3 Whirl Trio curling wand recently and it is amazing). After consideration, I ended up buying the Rusk Heat Freak Str8 iron, thinking it's also tourmaline/ceramic, and it should work the same. Plus, my sister got it for Christmas and loves it. After using it for the first time this morning, I'm underwhelmed. It took me a long time and a lot of passes to get my hair straight. I don't have that kind of time in the mornings (my makeup application suffered greatly at the expense of my hair, haha). I'm just a little afraid to spend the money on the T3 if it is going to basically be the same as the Rusk.

Create texture/waves with fine, straight hair
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?

Best Daily Shampoo for fine/oily/straight hair.
Hi everyone. I have fine, natural (never been dyed/highlighted) shoulder-length hair which tends to get greasy and flat by the end of the day. I cannot go without washing it everyday because it looks completely greasy from root to tip the next morning.   I have used a variety of shampoos (most with a clear formula as opposed to the creamier versions), make sure to only condition my ends, and use “It’s A 10 Lite” on my ends before blow drying. I also use dry shampoo mid-day to combat the oilyness on my scalp but nothing helps in the long run.   I have tried sulfate-free shampoos before and they weighed my hair down (maybe due to them being too much moisturizing?) and am wondering if there is a gentle, daily shampoo that anyone can recommend.   Thanks in advance!

Drybar, buttercup set...?
I'm curious about the Drybar buttercup blowdryer and specifically looking into getting the new set with the dryer, the dry shampoo, and heat protecting serum...It's a total of 205$ which is like unthinkable for me, can anyone share their thoughts with me on the dryer, is it worth the price? Also, if you use the dryer do you like their products as well, have not tried those either?? A little history: I have really fine and pretty thin hair, i really don't do much heat styling to it because it is naturally very dry and prone to damage. I recently tried to quit blow drying to see if my hair would improve (look less dry/frizzy/dull/damaged) it did look much healthier letting it air dry but it then would be so limp and just hang so i was conflicted, it looks bad when i don't blow dry and it looks un healthy when i do....Also i use moroccan oil on my damp hair mostly in the ends to smooth and moisturize and i really like that, recently i got into shine serums so i now use Kenra silkening gloss i think it's called and i LOVE that, its more weightless than my moroccan oil so i can use that on the areas closer to my scalp and around my face and that helps to smooth down my natural waves around my face. SOO using both of those i'm pretty happy now with my blow drying results but i still feel like it could be better, so what better than looking for some wonderful thoughts or advice from the lovely BT'ers

lupus related hair loss help
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.

Hair Extensions.. HELP!
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!!!!

Shampoo: B&B Surf vs John Frieda Beach Blonde
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.

Best shampoo & conditioner for bleached/damaged curly hair?
Soooo... I recently bleached my hair blonde (result pic below) and I washed and dryed it and my naturally curly hair appears to be wavy now like the curls are gone?

Best shampoo, conditioner, and products for thick, wavy, frizzy, blonde hair?
I have very thick (at least for a blonde) hair.  It's wavy, frizzy, and seems to break easily.  It tends to be more on the dry side.  Does anyone have a good idea of products I should be purchasing to keep it soft, smooth, and happy.   Also, I know that with drier hair I shouldn't wash daily...but then my dry scalp itches like crazy all day long.  Any ideas?    Lately I've been using Healthy Sexy Hair Shampoo, but it builds up really quickly in my hair.  I need something else.

Brow Color in relation to Hair Color?
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!

Make my hair dry faster
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.
