Best Dry Shampoo?
Hey my Beauties, I'm looking for a new dry shampoo and wondered what your favorites are.  I really like to avoid ones with a strong fragrance, as I don't like my hair products to compete with my perfume.  I have fine, 3A curly brown hair for reference.  Reading reviews it seems like most of them have a strong scent.  Any recommendations?

Q. Leave-In Conditioner/Hair Mask for Thick Hair
I am looking for a drugstore leave-in conditioner/hair mask to use once a week for long, thick hair. Because my hair is not particularly dry or damaged, I thought the average leave-in treatment would be fine, but I tried a sample of Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask and it had no effect. I haven't been able to find any recommendations online for products for my hair type, and I'd hate to buy something that I won't use. I just want my hair to be soft and shiny!

Best products for extreme hair loss?
I feel like I am losing a fraction of my hair daily! I think its a combination of the heat (shedding), prescriptions I am on, and diet. I don't blow dry my hair or straighten daily, just occasionally. My roots are weak, so I lose strands every time I flip my hair or run a hand through it. Would a scalp oil help? Recommendations please!

Replacement for B&B Curl Conscious
I don't have curly hair, but the former B&B Curl Conscious foam made me look like I did. LOVED that stuff and bought as much as I could before they discontinued it. But I am running out and need a replacement. Something that will take my layered hair and give it more than just a wavy look, but something closer to curls. Any suggestions?

Q. Product to make dry, thick hair curly?
My hair is very thick, medium length, and has been color treated many times. I live in Nevada, and as a result, if I let my hair air dry, it is dry as straw and fluffy, no matter what leave-in conditioner I use. But when I go to humid places like San Francisco or New Orleans, suddenly my hair has perfect curls like I used a waving wand. Is there a product I can use to get this effect at home?   This is my hair in Nevada, on a good day:                      And this is my San Francisco hair   I'm fairly young, if that helps anyone answer this question. Thank you!

Curling iron for really short hair?
Hi! I have short hair, a longish pixie ( a little shorter than how Victoria Beckham used to have it) and want to make it look wavy to give it more texture. I would love to use a curling iron but most of the barrels are too big. Do curling irons come in really small sizes? If so, what's the smallest?

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?

Best product for hair flyaways?
So I've noticed lately that my flyaways and "frizz" have become more bothersome in my opinion. For reference, I have super thick brunette hair (chest length), and actually very minimal volume at my roots. Rubbing lotion in my hands or shine serum or other drugstore products don't really work, and I don't like to use gel or anything in my hair because it's easily noticeable. Are there any holy grail products out there for frizz/flyaways? It doesn't help that I'm in the middle of a humid, hot, Michigan summer, but my hair has been bothering me for a while lately. Any advice would be appreciated!

whats your haircare routine?
So, I'm noticing my hair care routine is almost as many products as my skin care routine (well, not quite) but it got me wondering what everyone does for their hair in the morning and night.   In the evening, when its a wash night, I will use a tad of hair oil on my ends and leave in conditioner.  Then I will put in a heat protectant and blow dry my hair straight.  I love to finish it with a shine spray, LOVE the Oribe  texture shine spray I sampled recently.   OR I will put in a curley hair product and let my hair dry naturally at night.   ** this is the part I am still needing help with, as my wavy hair usually ends up frizzing on the ends, and looking so blah without added help from a curling iron in the morning.  Then I am dumbfounded as to what to do for my hair in the morning.     My morning routine usually consists of a bit of dry shampoo and some texturizing / shine spray.     Once a week, I wash my hair with a purple shampoo and deep condition my hair with the purple Aussie conditioner.  LOVE.

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!

New haircolor and how to take care of it?
Hello! So, I'm going to be dyeing my hair for the first time ever soon. I'm kinda scared, really. I have very thick, dark brown hair that's fairly long. When I say it's thick... I'm not kidding. I've broken who knows how many hair ties and brushes and combs. I'm very pale with a cool undertone and blue eyes, but I have central heterochromia; green around the centers of my eyes. I'm trying to figure out what haircolor would be best, and how do I take care of my hair?

Curly Hair, Cold/Dry Weather.
I live in the northeast, which means cold dry winters and hot humid summers. The latter really works for my hair - I love my natural curls in the humidity. However, it is May now and it's still cold/ dry out. My hair in the winter turns into this haystack of flat static-y waves that I can't style without hot tools. Any product suggestions on keeping my summer curls in this cold/dry weather?    Thanks!!

Hair Tools: Blow Dryer vs. Straightener
Hi everyone,   I am looking for some advice on whether to get a blow dyer or a straightener. I have shoulder length hair and all I really want is to look presentable (read no frizzy mess). I hear a lot of good things about the Drybar dryer and the straightener, so I am debating on getting one or the other. I do not have naturally straight or fine hair.   If you have both tools regardless of brand, please share which you think is more beneficial to your hair routine.   Thank you!
