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 .

What is included in the AMIKA #TheWiseOne Switch Kit Customizable Set?
I bought this last week, and was so excited to try out the new curler and especially to use the 3 Amika minis that are supposed to come with the kit. To my surprise, I never received the 3 hair minis and called customer service to they said that it is actually NOT included in the set?! But it's shown in the picture and they are listed in the "what comes with this set" in the description. I am seriously shocked with Sephoras deceitful advertising. I am just wondering if anyone else purchased this product and if so, did you receive the Amika 3 minis? Thanks!

Beauty waves/loose curls: Need recommendations for a new curling iron/wand
So, most posts I've seen on BT are a little older, and I wanted to get updated opinions/recommendations from everyone. I'm in search of a curling wand or iron that is a 32mm barrel or 1.25 inches. I have a NumeTitanium wand (which is a piece of junk). My Nume does awesome curls, but they die down and just give my hair a slight bend by the end of the day. I want to maintain the beach waves for at least two days. I have long thick hair. Most curling iron's I have tried just don't cut it- my beach waves/curls are gone by the end of the day. I don't want to spend more than $150 (unless it's from Ulta because I have 2000 points I want to redeem which equal to $125). Thanks in advance!   EDIT: I also live in Miami where humidity is 100% year-round.

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

Keeping hair straight and frizz-free overnight
I have naturally wavy/slightly curly and very frizzy hair that tends to get oily at the roots. My usual routine at night is to shower right before bed and blow dry my hair straight (I shower my hair every other day and blow out my hair only on those days). Once I’m done, my hair feels fully dried, and looks frizz-free, but as of the last few months, I wake up to a very wavy frizzy mess and then I have to straighten it again which defeats the purpose of straightening it at night (to save time and not wake up others in the morning).   I don’t feel like I sweat much in my sleep, but I’m guessing that could possibly be a reason why this happens or maybe my hair isn’t fully dried even though it feels as it is. I almost always leave my hair down when I sleep and avoid putting it in an elastic because my roots tends to feel oily when I put it in a ponytail and I don’t want to leave an indention in my hair from the elastic. Sometimes I sleep with a clip in my hair, but that’s not always comfortable.   Any idea what I’m doing wrong, or what I can do to keep my hair straight and frizz-free overnight? Any tips or product suggestions would greatly be appreciated!

Does anyone know of semi-permamnent drugstore dye that...?
Hi there, Does anyone know of a drugstore red/auburn hair color that actually looks red indoors? Any dye I have tried looks black indoors, but a lovely red in sunlight. I am hoping to find a semi-permanent dye at the drugstore that looks red all the time, indoors too. I have tried the Loreal Casting Crème Gloss, but I have the same problem. Dark brown/black indoors; lovely auburn shade outside. I could probably find what I am looking for in permanent dyes, but I only want semi-permanent. Also, I am not looking for a bright red (like Ariel), but a natural medium/dark auburn shade.  Thank you for reading this.

Q. Ceramic vs Ionic?? Looking for a new hair dryer
Helloooo!! I am looking for a new hair dryer and I have a few questions and was wondering if anyone would be able to answer them. My first is the classic "ceramic or ionic" question. I have normal to thick wavy/curly hair that does take a bit more effort to blow dry smooth. I loooove volume and I read somewhere that ceramic is better for volume but I feel like ionic would be better for my hair type because it's curly. Additionally, I can imagine that I would be able to create the desired amount of volume with a little help from my plumping mousse and velcro rollers if I had an ionic dryer. I also keep seeing words like "tourmaline" "nano titanium" and "titanium", can someone please clarify what they mean exactly?? I have my eye on the Babyliss Pro Nano Titanium Portofino (info is right here if you are not familiar  http://www.babylissus.com/product.php?pcID=206_153 &product_id=132 ) but I was also wondering which hair dryers you guys like the best/would be good for my hair type! Thank you One last thing, does anyone know any good hairsetters?? Babyliss makes hot rollers and I am looking for a nice set of PRO hot rollers, but it seems like not that many brands carry them, if you happen to know of any hot rollers that would be lovely. Thank you!! xoxo

Devacurl Decadence or Qhemet Biologics?
  I need help deciding between Devacurl Decadence products and Qhemet Biolgics. I have Coily, thick and VERY DRY hair my hair type is 3C/ 4A. My hair  is most likely somewhat damaged as well. I have gotten samples of Devacurl Decadance products and even the coconut curler and loved it however, when on the website I see really great reviews for Qhemet Biologics products for Afro dry thick and curly hair. The only thing is Qhemet Biologics is online only so I cannot sample it so I do not know which will truly be best for me. What will moisturize, bring shine, lessen frizz, help with split ends  and bring health to my damaged hair?

Q. Recommendations for Products for Postpartum Hair Regrowth/Strengthening
Hello everyone! I am ten months postpartum and in need of product recommendations to encourage my very long, fine hair to grow back. It started falling out like crazy after my little guy was born (as it does to everyone who's had a baby). I wear it in a ponytail/messy bun most days, but on occasion I'll straighten it or style it in a donut bun, and all I can focus on are the little devil horns all around my face from new growth. It's lost a lot of body, and while I don't usually go for "lift"-style volume, I do miss the little that I did have. Does anyone have a product that they love? I don't wash my hair every day (usually 2-3x a week) and haven't for a long time (except when the munchkin was a very newborn and I needed to feel a little bit human!). It does tangle fairly easily, and I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I actually don't brush it very often, either. Thanks!

How to Define my Naturally Curly Hair (White/Latina Girl)
So I have naturally curly hair, but some days the frizz takes over and it doesn't look so curly. I've had the hardest time finding products, I bought Sexy Curly Hair Cream but it makes my hair look wet all the time, like it doesn't dry and it doesn't define them at all for me. I would say my curls are 2C. Every time I look something up on Pinterest or YouTube, the only tutorials and tips I can find are for black women. That obviously doesn't work for me, a Danish/Latina mixed girl, because my hair type and texture is completely different. So does anyone have any suggestions for me? Thank you so much!

Oily Hair Itchy Scalp
I've noticed basically every time winter comes around my hair starts to get super oily and my scalp starts to get itchy in spots. I always think it has something to do with dandruff but I haven't had dandruff problems for years. Then again I'm still using dandruff controlling shampoo but its not helping with my winter hair problems. For the rest of the year my hair is perfect after I wash it and I only wash my hair every other day. Is there any shampoo products that I can use to help control my oily hair and itchy scalp during the winter months?
