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?
Please please please help!!!! I am 24 years old with fine, straight, blonde hair. I am a natural blonde, but I started highlighting my hair only 3 years ago, and my hairdresser is very conscious of my problem and concerns with hair growth so she isn't bleaching my hair off. I only get my hair done maybe every 2 months, and its mild highlighting. I only style my hair maybe once to twice a week, and I only wash it about the same, once to twice a week. When I was 22 I was hired to be a model in a hair show and the artist colored my hair to be platinum blonde and cut it into a blunt bob by my shoulders. Since that time my hair HAS NOT GROWN AT ALL! it dry and breaks off at the end. It feels full and looks healthy on the top but is stringy and spare towards the bottom. The pieces around my face are about 2 inches shorter than the pieces around the neck/shoulders. Ive tried letting it breathe and grow but nothing worked so for the past year I've been wearing tape-in extensions to hide what I am so frustrated and embarrassed about. Ive asked a lot of hair stylist as to what I should do and 98% the response I get is "oh wow thats weird, just use heat protectant." That isn't going to solve my problem, I need a regiment or something to stick to and be consistent with that WILL work! Ive tried, (for a short while because I just grew frustrated, for about a month): Ovation Cell hair therapy Olaplex Biotin Natural exotic Oils as hair masks Pureology and just not doing anything with it at all.. please help me! i am sooooo clueless when it comes to hair!
I would like to use clip in extensions for my wedding but do not know what to get. Is there a good brand? I have never used extensions before so I do not know anything about them! I would like my hair to be slightly longer and look fuller
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!
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!
Do the Invisibobble hair ties leave dents in anyone else's hair? I bought them to try them but they seem to leave dents in my hair! I don't know if it's just the way my hair is or if I'm not using them right, but they leave dents in my hair.
I used Redken Color Extend Magnetics for a while and noticed increased hair loss, so I tried Nexxus Color shampoo/conditioner. The Nexxus caused very little hair loss, but it didn't clean my hair and left it weighed down and feeling dirty. So, I tried Living Proof products and my hair is majorly falling out , so much that other people notice and I can see my scalp! I'm freaking out and looking to try new shampoo/conditioner (obviously) but am afraid yet another product line/ingredients will make it worse. Seriously, as in clumps of hair stuck in the drain, on the floor, and falling out while I am just sitting at my computer at work...OMG. I'm probably sensitive/allergic to something in it and no, allergy testing is not an option (too expensive). What products will help my hair regrow and look less thin, and also help it look volumized asap? I know it will take a while to grow it back. My hair in general is very fine, straight, and tends to hang no matter what I use, so I don't really mind just want my hair back. I am so sad and self-conscious about this. ************** UPDATE I have a happy update! I did more research about my issue and decided to try Yes to Carrots Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner and after the first wash, ZERO hair was in the tub! Even after I combed it, the difference was dramatic. I know for sure I am either allergic to the silicone-related chemicals (silicones also make my face get little bumps) or the sulfates. It is probably silicones since I use sulfate free hair products for the most part. So, am quite happy to have halted the hair loss with Yes to Carrots until I see my doctor in the future. Really, a huge difference. My boyfriend and I did a little dance of joy when he saw the hair-free tub Hooray! Thanks for your support when I was freaking out. Hugs to all of you.
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?
I can't seem to get the bumble and bumble dont blow it to work on my hair.. my hair is thin and just in the middle of my **bleep**/middle of my shoulder blades... Is it not working because of my hair or am i doing something wrong?? My hair just seems limp using it, lifeless.. and OILY at the roots!!!
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?
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!
Hello ladies! I am thinking about using hair removal cream on my arms and thighs, but I'm worried that it will cause the hair to grown back thicker and darker. What has your experience been with hair removal cream? Which ones would you suggest? Thanks!
I have long hair, naturally wavy and with loose curls. I've tried every product and nothing keeps the curls and fights frizz My routine is to towel dry my hair after washing, and put some product in and let it air dry. Recently I've been using Redkin Curvaceous full swirl serum/cream. I've also been using moraccon oil to fight frizz - which isn't really helping. My hari tends to be a bit dry. So i'm looking for a product, or combination of products, that will help me get and keep those great curls. I'm also looking for a product that I can use the next day to revatilize my curls, boost them, reawaken - however you want to phrase it. If there is a different product that I could use or the same as above. I need some help Sephora. I've tried every brand and nothing seems to really work, can you help?!
Looking for a product that will enhance waves!! I have fine/straight hair, but love to sleep in two braids with slightly damp hair to create soft waves. What product would anyone recommend to increase the hold and definition without the crunch?
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?
I'm looking for a finishing spray for light to medium hold; I have other products for the heavy duty stuff I'd love something that has a nice scent, to be part of the experience. I was using Ojon color sustain Gloss Finishing Hair Spray, but Sephora doesn't carry it, and I like the Ouidad Finishing Mist & Holding Spray http://www.sephora.com/finishing-mist-setting-hold ing-spray-P242151?skuId=1200138&icid2=products%20g ... but it is unscented. Thank you for sharing your experiences.
My hair is a dirty blonde but bleached with highlights. I'm going away for Christmas break and I want to know which product to use on my hair to protect it! I plan to deep condition with coconut oil while I'm away - but to be safe, I'd like something in my hair while the sun is out. Thanks!
hello my loves.... I would love to say good morning but sadly it has not been. If those I have not met do not know me my name is Skye and I am a sophomore in high school, I am a shopaholic and makeup junkie to the max! Im just trying to trot my way through high school so I can move to L.A when im done, feel free to message me, I love new friends! anyway lovelies, so it was a sunny south florida day and my mother and I drive to the local salon that I have been going to for several years. I was going to get a subtle trim to cut off any "dead or split ends" that might have emerged since I haven't cut my hair in a year ( an exact year ago a different hairdresser had F'd up my hair and cut half of it off). I was greeted by a hairdresser who I never met before but she was very welcoming and kind and walked me to a empty seat. I told her EXACTLY what I wanted ( subtle trim, no length taken off) NOW, my beauties I will insert a picture of what my beloved hair looked like exactly a day before it was cut. I would also love to know if any of you think that there are split ends or noticable damage judging from that. okay so then she advised me to head over to the sink so the other lady could wash my hair and get it wet so it was easier to cut, I did, my hair was wet and I returned. At first the combed out then started subtly cutting off the little ends and tidying it up, I felt comfortable so I began looking through my phone as she was snipping and talking about her vacation. WORST MISTAKE EVER, within minutes of checking through instagram and texting my boyfriend where I was, I literally....literally..felt the wait of my hair had decreased and I looked up and no bish.no. HALF OF MY HAIR WAS GONE, and she was still talking like nothing was wrong! I said " um excuse me, what happened to my hair?" I had like this sickening feeling in my stomach because it looked exactly it did a year ago when a completely different hairdresser cut half of it off. she looked up and her poor little face looked kind of afraid and embarrassed so I just said "Its okay,Im just going to go now" so my mother saw and was instantly shocked and I just waited for her to pay and then drove home. as soon as I got home I cried for two hours. anyway im not even going to start some little pity party im jsut looking fro the best pills/products to grow it out, please lovelies. I literally look the same as I did a year ago and all my lovely grown out hair is gone. *Picture*
I am looking for a clarifying shampoo for my thick color treated hair and a hair mask. My hair is so dry and I can hardly put a brush though it after i shower even with conditioner. Once its dry it knots up so fast! I think it has something to do with my water. Any suggestions would be helpful.
Hey guys I want to buy a clipless curler, I want something not too expesive but not really cheap either. Also it would be great if it came with multiple barrels. Do you have any favorites or suggestions?
Hi everyone, I'm looking for help in choosing a new shampoo and conditioner. I have long, thick, straight hair that has oily roots but pretty dry ends. I already go 3 to 4 days within washes, and I do use dry shampoo to try and rid my scalp of the oiliness. I hardly use heat on my hair at all anymore and I dye my hair at home every few months, but it's not really something I'm concerned with when it comes to shampoo and conditioner. I just really need something that keeps the ends of my hair looking hydrated in between washes but also keeps the roots less oily. Any other tips on what I could do in addition to changing shampoo and conditioner are also appreciated. Thanks in advance!
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!
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!
I have wavy hair that is cury around my face and the nape of my neck, my hair is also extremely fine and prone to breakage. Use a lot of heat to deal with the unruliness does anyone have any advice for shampoo conditioner and styling products?
My friend has been using boxed dye on her hair and she says that her hair won't take dye anymore or the dye seems to wash out quickly/fade. She has been using permanent boxed dyes. After using numerous boxed dyes the hair seems damaged and she wants to cover greys. I don't dye my hair so I couldn't offer advice. What is the correct way to re-dye/refresh hair colour? Example: If she has dyed hair is it correct for her to keep using dye over dye with developer etc? I was googling and found that people refresh/tone their hair in certain ways. After dying with permanent is it correct to keep re-dying with permanent dyes and developers or are you supposed to use a semi-permanent overtop (or a less intense developer)? I'm lost here lol please help!! (also trying to cover greys here so please keep that in mind)... Thanks!!!! =D
Hey guys! I was one of the lucky recipients of the Madame CJ Walker giveaway held a few weeks ago on BT. I received 4 products and would like to share my thoughts and results with everyone. Hopefully all the winners will drop by and report how they like the products. I'll start with my thoughts on the products before use and update once I get a chance to try them. About my hair I have curly hair that leans more towards coily, especially with the right products. On the curly spectrum I'm between 3B & 3C. I also recently had highlights done so my ends have been very dry and damaged. Initial thoughts General: Each bottle is clearly labeled with which hair type it's best suited for in addition to being color coded. Purple is for all hair types, pink for heat styled, blue for wavy/curly & yellow for curly/coiled. Wonderful Pre-Wash Protein Treatment: For all hair types. This is (obviously) a pre-wash treatment. It smells slightly floral in a clean way. The ingredient list includes shea butter, some oils and "fatty" alcohols which are apparently good for the hair. Who knew?! Jamaican Black Castor Oil: For curly/coily hair. This is new to me. It's very thick and has a strong-ish scent. You rub this on your scalp to moisturize the hair. In my initial test it seems nice but makes my hair appear oily. The instructions also suggest using it as a pre-wash conditioning treatment. I will most likely use it for that. Ultra-Moisturizing Co-Wash: For curly/ coily hair. If you don't know what co-washing is, the quick definition is washing your hair with only conditioner. Loved by curly girls (myself included) it's a great way to prep your hair for styling without drying out your curls. VERY excited for this one! Defining Butter Creme: For curly/coily hair. I tested this out a little this morning on my second day hair. It left some residue on my hair and I can still smell it, 12 hours later. Hopefully I'll like it more on wet hair. Please share your thoughts on these and any other curly hair products! I know there are a lot of us curly girls roaming about BT and it's always helpful to hear what works & doesn't work for others!
