How can I get my naturally curly hair to hold the curl?
  I have wavy, curly hair.  The sides of my hair seem to hold curl much better than the back of my hair.  Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could get the back of my hair to stay curly?

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

Dry Bar Buttercup Blowdryer
I recently purchased the Drybar "big blowout bundle." From what I can see from the pictures on the Sephora website, Bio Ionic makes, the Drybar blow dryers, as their names is printed on the side. However when I received mine, I don't see the name "Bio Ionic," on it. Do they no longer make Drybar's blow dryers?

Q. BABYLISSPRO Nano Titanium Digital Straightening Iron vs Drybar Tress Press Digital Styling Iron
I am shopping for a flat iron and I was considering the Drybar Tress Press, until I saw the Babyliss Nano Titanium Digital Straightening Iron, which is $50 cheaper, and I noticed they look nearly identical except with different labels and are in different colors. This made me think that those two irons could be essentially the same product but with different labels slapped onto them. I wonder if these two irons have the same manufacturer? I know that different brands of makeup have the same manufacturers so some makeup products are pretty much the same, but does this apply to hair tools as well? Take a look at the pictures, what do you guys think?

Bumble and bumble Surf Foam Spray Blow Dry -Thermal Protection?
For some reason I can't ask a question on the product page. Does anyone know if the Bumble & Bumble Surf Foam has thermal protectant for my hair? It seems like it would since it is a blow drying product, but the page doesn't explicitly say so. Thanks.

Hair straightening at home - what to consider?
One of my friends is considering straightening her long hair. She prefers DIY methods. I have researched in google and saw Matrix Opti.care helps to keep hair smooth and straight. Is there anything she should consider before getting straight hair?

Invisibobble leaves dents in my hair!!
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.

New Hair Product
Looking for a new hair product. I loved Bumble and Bumble Color Minded Styling Balm, but B&B discontinued it last year. I have yet to find anything similar.  I don't like B&B styling creme.

Hair product curling hair
I recently decided that my hair needed a change.  It was long and I never used any product or anything.  I just flat ironed it.    It's really thick with natural curls but they're not cute so I make it straight.    So I got it cut.  It's now a "lob" just below my shoulders.  I really want loose/beachy waves like the lob pics here:  http://www.somewherelately.com/2015/03/new-hair-fo r-spring.html   I got a 1 3/4" curling iron but I think it's way too big so I'll try a 1 1/4".    But I need help with product.  Obviously I shampoo and conditioner but then what?  Should I use something before blow drying?  Before using the curling iron?  After?  One thing I recently got was a root lifter.  I used it for the first time today but I wasn't impressed.  (It was Aquage... I don't think I used enough).    I feel like a need a heat protectant and something to set the curls but I don't want a really stiff hold.  Help!

Tape-In Hair Extensions
  Hello,   I am interested in getting extensions and wonder if ya'll can share with me any experiences you've had with Tape-in hair extensions.   I bough clip in but it felt heavy, gave me headache and kept sliding down my hair. I wonder if the tape-ins would be better since the weight is distributed across the tape, instead of focused on the clips....   Any input would be much appreciated!

Styling gel/cream.
Hi everyone   I'm Scott, I'm growing my hair out and need some product recommendations please. My hair has a slight wave to it and is prone to dryness and slight frizz if I leave it to its own devices. My current routine: I shampoo and condition with Pureology Precious Oil and then apply one drop of Josie Maran Argan Oil and one drop of john masters Organics Dry Hair Nourishment and Defrizzer (mixture of natural oils) to wet hair and leave it to air dry. This works well right now because my hair is still quite short. However, when it gets longer, I would like to incorporate a styling product. Is there something available I could use that will quickly set the style in place when it's still wet but that I'm able to brush out and still retain a natural but set look? If that makes sense. I've already come across a product which I think might be suitable called AVEDA Confixor Liquid Gel. Does anyone have any experience using this product or any of AVEDA styling products, particularly the gels and creams? Also, I'm not adverse to using products that contain silicones and/or quats because I think the shampoo I use has the correct combination of surfactants to remove and prevent build up. Do you have any product recommendations please in any price range? I'm looking for a gel/cream to use as a leave in on wet hair that will work without heat and will not cause stickiness or flakes but still hold the style in place. I'm also open to any other suggestions or advice. Thanks

Lightweight volumizing mousse for thick straight hair for everyday to night use
Looking to get extra volume that's lightweight, not sticky or greasy, to use on my extra thick straight hair that I occasionally add curl or wave too.  I don't want the gunked up stuff I have to wash out that night.  I also don't have to look like a grease ball and I rarely use conditioner because of my hairs extra softness.  I am currently using suave professionals seafoam all day foam stuff and love the formula, but kind of want to see if there is anything else out there.  I see they have other formulas in the suave line now, but there are also others I am eyeing...not your mothers, got2b, nexxus.  Should I stick with same one and I am never a suave fan except this and looking for both drugstore/ low end and mid level products.    Suggestions?

Alternative to Bumble & Bumble Thickening Serum
I have very long, naturally thinner hair and a few years ago I began using the Bumble & Bumble Thickening Serum and it was a miracle product for me and made my hair very noticeably thicker. I usually stock up on it during sales, so I haven't had to purchase one recently. I went to Sephora last week I saw they didn't carry it anymore, so I looked it up online and I can't find it anywhere, not even the B&B website! Does anyone know of a comparable product I could use instead? I really don't want my hair to go back to being thin and limp!   Thanks everyone!   (In case it's important, I still use the Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner almost every time I shower.)

Whats your favourite bumble & bumble conditioner?
I've been using bumble and bumble straight shampoo and I love it. Im debating on whether to get the matching straight conditioner or a different one from their line?   Or any other conditioners you love? The hair line for Canada is small-ish in Sephoras.. so hopefully its something we can get in store (cough*briogeo*cough)

Hair
So I decided to go ahead and buy the Bio Ionic One Pass Iron over GHD's new Platinum one. Mainly in part do to functionality issues with my Eclipse (I had two that suddenly broke after less than a year's use ) and did'nt want to risk it happening again. Also, I did my homework and searched Platinum reviews and saw the negative ones were quite similar, death beep that overheats and never works properly again. I contacted GHD on why they never respond to the negative reviews , I found them to be very evasive with me almost like they new the design could have faulty issues. I new right then and there the Bio Ionic would have my vote, I found a lot of praise on this iron and several salons nearby highly recommend it and carry it. Moreover, I'd pick functionality over pretty packaging any day, I want to get my money's worth.

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.

Deesse's Elujuda Emulsion
I purchased this Japanese hair product from my salon the other day. $35, but I have seen it on Amazon for around $25. It's an AMAZING leave-in that makes your hair silky soft (and look at the bottle!). It also comes in a "light" version. If you really want to go nuts, they also make a hair oil (orange bottle) and a light version hair oil (yellow bottle). You can also get them shipped directly from their website from Japan, but it will take about 30-45 days for delivery. The description online says that it smells like apples, however, it smells like fresh laundry to me...kinda like a laundromat! Purchase it, you won't regret it ;-)

Shampoo: B&B Surf vs John Frieda Beach Blonde
Has anyone tried and compared Bumble and Bumble's Surf Foam Wash shampoo to John Frieda's Beach Blonde Cool Dip shampoo? I have tried B&B and know I like it, however it is a tad pricey. I love their new Surf Infusion spray compared to the original, so I'm not so interested in John Frieda's spray, despite it being a cult classic in its own right.
