Q. hair previously dyed red
Hi! So I previously dyed my hair auburn for about 4 months, then burgundy for another 3, until it faded. I then cut my hair shorter (it had been long) and decided burgundy did not look as good anymore, and wanted to go back to brown/my natural color. The brown looked nice, however, the red was still present. Is there anyway to remove the red?

A. I'd recommend going to a hair salon... red can often be a very difficult color to remove, especially without professional grade products. see post

Q. Can you help me tackle my frizzy, dry, unmangiable hair?
I find myself constantly fustrated with my hair- it's an absaloute nightmare and I can't do anything with it! It's not curly or wavy but it's not really straight either- it has a few kinks/waves in it which look quite strange. It's incredibly thick and coarse and very dry as well as extremely frizzy and puffy. I get really stressed out putting it in a pony tail or bun because my hair just won't do as it's told and falls out and sticks out everywhere! I've tried so many high street anti-frizz products I've lost count, but none of them really seem to do anything to my hair- I'm under the impression that they're really aimed at people with finer hair than me who just have a few flyaways. I used to straighten my hair every day which was extremely hard work, and even though my hair is so thick and strong it could handle it, I've noticed that it's in slightly better condition in it's natural state. All I do with my hair nowerdays is just wash it, every 5 days or so, with whatever shampoo and conditioner my parents have bought and put a bit of coconut oil on the ends of it as it's drying (which does absaloutely nothing but it makes me feel better :') ). I let it dry naturally as it turns into a giant puff ball when hair dried. My hair would look really lovely and voluminous if I could just tame it; I'd love to put together a hair care routine suitable for my hair but I don't know where to start! I feel like it would be nice wavy, like it does have a few waves in it which can look nice on the right day. I'm also vegan so it would be great if the products reccomended could be cruelty free. Any ideas? I'm so sorry for babbling on, any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Q. I bleached my hair
So, I bleached my hair 1 week ago and I don't like the results. Now I want to dye my hair dark brown. When will it be ok for me to do this without it damaging my hair? Also because of the bleach my hair dried even more and I don't know what products to use. What will work for my hair? I just bought this product by Wella, it's a reconstructing mask. Will this help my hair?   Thank you!

Q. How to Deal with Thick and Tangled Hair
Help! No matter how long I brush or comb my hair for, there always seems to be one clump that just will not come apart. I recently got my hair thinned out at the salon due to this, and after she styled it, it seemed almost too thin, but after I washed it myself a few days later, it seemed no different from before. I've tried different shampoos and conditioners and products, but I can't seem to find anything that works for me. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Q. Best straightener/conditioner?
Hi! My name is Alison and I am thirteen years old. I currently have a layered haircut that falls a little past my shoulders and am looking to grow it. My hair is naturally wavy/curly, but with my haircut, it looks absolutely horrible ! I use the GHD Platinum hair straightener (love it, worth every penny), but I'm looking for a different shampoo to help straighten it more. I currently use L'oreal Straightening shampoo and conditioner, but is there another one that y'all would recommend?  Thank you so much!

Q. Drybar: 3 day Bender
Anyone own the Drybar 3 day bender?   I just bought it and can't for the life of me get it to work properly. My hair gets tangled on the bottom and it doesn't really leave my hair soft and lush.    I really really want to like this product and I probably will go to Sephora and personally ask them to show me. I want to give it a chance.   But I wanted to get some of your opinions for those who use it and if there's any tips on how to use it. There's not a lot of youtube videos about this product and the reviews are mostly good. I just need some tips on how to use this properly.

This is my first time posting a question, I apologize in advance if I put it in the wrong section or someone has talked about this before (I couldn't find anything) please forgive me  I just wondered what everyone's thoughts are on hair perfumes… have you used them?

Q. Lip Waxing...what about the grow back
So I am considering doing the upper lip wax... at the Benefit brow bar place.  I'm naturally blonde so I have that peach fuzz all over my face, which isn't really noticeable but still slightly annoying in the upper lip area when I want to wear concealer there so I just avoid it.     Anyways, I am worried if I wax there it will grow back thicker and more wiry.  I've read this is a myth but about a year ago I was picking at spot on my chin where I had peach fuzz and tore some hairs out and now every so often I get a thicker darker hair growing in there that just seems to pop up overnight like some ninja beard.   So I'm worried the same will happen with upper lip.   Anyone have this experience?

Q. Holding a Curl from a Round Brush
Hi All,   Within the past 6 months or so, I have noticed that when I round brush my hair, it doesn't hold the curl as well as it used to. I use a 2 inch round brush and have long hair, but I want bouncy curls like I used to get from round brushing.    I'm not sure if maybe since my hair has gotten longer, it's too heavy to hold a curl from a round brush? I use a blow-dry spray, but if anyone else could recommend a product or a technique for getting my hair to hold a curl from a round brush blowout, I'd really appreciate it!
