Hair Dryer
Hi beauty experts,    My T3 featherweight kicked the bucket and will not turn on so I am shopping around for a new hair dryer. I was never in love with my T3 and replaced a ton of them but I stuck with them due to the warranty as it is rather good and cost me relatively nothing to replace over the years.    I have long, wavy/curly color treated hair that I only blowdry when I straighten (couple of times every couple of weeks). I do need to follow up with a straightener afterwards. I would love a diffuser that could help on days I don;t have as much time to air dry but the T3 diffuser just frizzed out my hair so I stopped using it.    I am looking at the Sephora blow dryer (love the travel one), the Devacurl dryer (love that it comes with a diffuser and is meant for curly hair) and the Buttercup by Drybar. I tried the GHD blow dryer ( love my straightener - 8 years still going strong) when it first came out but didn't love it. I also looked into the Dyson but the warranty is only 2 years - for the price point it needs to be longer than 2 years.    I am a little worried about the Devacurl and the Buttercup as the reviews seem to indicate that they stop working 1-2 year after using it and with a warranty of only one year this is somewhat of a concern for me.    Would love to know your recommendations and anyone who has been using the above dryers for 2 years+ without any issues.    Thanks so much for your help. :-)

Can someone help me decide upon a haircut and how to style it?
I would like to do something with my hair. I have always had my hair pulled back (which may be the cause of my uneven hairline) and tied up all my life. I don't like my hair down because of how frizzy it becomes. I have tried many antifrizz products and am using shampoos and conditioners (Shea Moisture products) so that there are no sulfates to strip my hair of moisture but none of it seems to help the frizz. I live in the Caribbean and daily temperatures are normally around 33-34 degrees celsius A little bit about my hair: I have to apply oils as soon as I wash my hair or else the frizz is much worse when it is dry. When I sleep and wake the next day my hair is dry like I never applied anything. I don't really blow dry my hair. I let it air dry and I don't use heat tools on it at all. I like low maintenance. Hair is naturally wavy to curly and is flat at the top of my head and gets wider below ( like a triangle). Please consider I wear glasses all the time. It never feels greasy unless I put too much product on it. I am of Indian descent by the way. Here are some pics. I can't get the pics to rotate when I add them here. sorry If you look closely at the pic above you can see shorter hair sticking out of my head and looking wiry like. It is like this no matter how much hair product I use. (Shea Moisture style milk or moisturizer) What style do you suggest? How can I style it so I can maintain it? Really sorry about the photo orientation guys.

Curly Hair
Hi,   I have blonde curly hair. I was wondering what a good shampoo/conditioner would be. Or any additional hair products would be.    I'd prefer nothing with coconut oil, as that just makes the outside of my hair feel greasy and waxy, but does not actually provide the moisturizing qualities needed. In addition, Argon oil tends to be more drying.   More on my hair: it gets knotty, and obviously can only be brushed when wet. I've tried most store brand conditioners, and most are too heavy and weigh down my curls. The only one that seemed to work was "Beach Blonde - detangling conditioner" by John Freida. However, like most hair products my hair "builds a tolerance" and that no longer works.   TLDR; Need hair product recommendations for curly hair.

Damaged hair
Hello, I am in desperate need of some suggestions. My hair is naturally very dark, and past my shoulders. I get bored with it (like every girl does) and switch it up. I've had highlights, balayage, my hair bleached. You name it, I have done it. I recently got a wave perm.( I thought it was going to be a good idea for summer so I can just get up and go) It absolutely fried my hair. I am currently using Redken for my shampoo and conditioner. After the perm my hair needed some TLC so I purchased Mudslide by Drybar and it has helped some. Some parts of my hair are frizzy from the damage, and it just doesn't feel healthy anymore. The curls  from the perm aren't even there anymore, so I end up straightening or curing it everyday. I need a good everyday shampoo and conditioner to bring my dry damaged hair back to life.

Looking for a hair product for hair worn up.
I have fine hair that I'm required to wear up for my job.  It's still semi-wet when I put it up because it takes forever to dry and I'm not going to blow dry it everyday just to put it up into a bun.  Yes, I try to make it loose but it can't be messy.  I'm also outdoors a lot so my hair sees the sun, wind, rain, etc.   I'm looking for a product that will protect my hair from the elements and the constant up do.     I'll admit, due to how fine it is, I even wear it up on my days off and especially to the gym.

Q. Tips for Traveling to Europe with Heat Tools?
Hi Beauties!   I'm planning my first trip to Europe (Hungary, mainly) in a couple months and am concerned with being able to use my heat tools...I have a lot of hair that I try to take particular care of, and I'm attending a wedding - so I need to look polished.   I have a Velecta Paramount hair dryer, an amika Polished Perfection Straightening Brush, and their Switch Kit curling iron.    I mention the specific tools I have so that I can ask the following: Has anyone traveled to EU with these specific tools, or similar? Did you use a converter - which one? Has anyone tried just ordering new tools from a EU seller so that the tools have the right hardware? If so, any suggestions on similar quality tools to look at? I'm also curious to see if anyone has other thoughts/ideas/suggestions on the topic that I haven't thought to ask about.   Thanks!!

Need hair coloring advice please
I initially requested ombre highlights with a "funky" color.  The salon I went to told me the only way to do this was to bleach the hair first, then to color.  I agreed accept the highlights came out looking more like two giant skunk stripes.  I also had to re-color my hair weekly because the color kept fading from a deep plum to a washed out pink/red.  It drove me nuts so I decided to do something natural and permanent. I went to a different salon and they assured me that my hair would not be further damaged.  I had more highlights put in with bleach to blend out the thick stripes and then color was applied over the lightened hair. That washed out after 2 shampoos and my hair is completely damaged.  I'm so confused because I thought permanent hair color would not wash out, let alone in just 2 washes!  Did I get ripped off?  Also, is there a way to color hair without bleaching first? Thank you!!!

Do you think professional/salon shampoos and conditioners are actually worth it?
Hello all!   I have been using drugstore shampoo/conditioners, nothing expensive or too fancy for pretty much my whole life. I have tried more expensive shampoos/conditioners but have never seen a significant change in my hair to fork over the extra money. It's funny because I spend a lot on styling products, but cringe for some reason over the high prices of salon shampoos! I think it's just because I want to make sure they actually do something for me. Do you all think that the higher end shampoo and conditioners are actually worth it? If so what do you like? Or what do you like from drugstores?   I have very thick, wavy, blonde hair that I wash 2-3 a week. Would love any recommendations!
