About my hair: It's 4 inches past my bra strap, medium thickness, and a medium coarse texture that I don't dye or heat style. I wash my hair every other day with Macadamia natural oil flawless cleansing conditioner and use a protein treatment one time per week. I use Chi Silk Infusion and Macadamia natural oil healing oil on towel dried hair. I would think that with how I take care of my hair it would be super healthy, but I just got an inch cut off 2 weeks ago and my ends are already super stringy, dry, and rough. Any product suggestions or tips as to how to get them smooth and healthy again? Thanks!
My hair used to always be frizzy, thick, and curly/wavy growing up. For some reason when I moved out to the Midwest two years ago, my hair has become very straight and fine. I can tell part of it is due to the fact that use heat tools daily (straightening iron and/or curling iron) and wash + dry my hair every other day. It stays pretty flat, dull, and uncooperative most days. I have been trying the Living Proof Restore Shampoo + Conditioner and Moroccan Oil on my hair when I watch it, but it only really makes it softer. I would like to grow my hair back out and have healthier looking hair. Any techniques or ideas on how to make my hair healthy again?
PLEASE HELP! I'M DESPERATE! I have very fine hair with little frizzies around my temples and the crown of my head. My hair is naturally curly/wavy but it never looks right if I let it go natural. My hair is incredibly dry and brittle. If I let my hair air dry, it is one big frizzy ball of dry hair. So everyday for work I must blow dry and straighten my hair. I use It's A 10 leave in miracle treatment (which used to work wonders, not so much anymore) before styling each day, and Argon Oil to try and smooth the frizzy fly aways after straightening. But yet my hair still feels dead and dry. It tangles easily, and feels like my fingers are running through straw What are some products I can use to restore my hair, and give me that beautiful soft, silky smooth, frizz-free, shine, that I will be able to run my hands through with pride?
Let's just put it this way...I wanted a natural looking ombre on my dark blonde hair. I went to my colorist the other day to get the bottom portion of my hair lightened a little more than the rest of my hair and it came out gold, but not quite brassy which I later used a purple shampoo to tone it down since he didn't put a toner on me after he applied the color. No big deal right? Well anyway, I was going for the Lauren Conrad ombre look and soon realized it just wasn't meant for me after he colored it. No offense to my colorist, he did a great job for someone that has many layers and side bangs, but I personally don't like the look on me. So I plan on going in on Saturday to hopefully (crossing my fingers) to get something along the lines of this look: I really adore the way the light hits those colors, it's ungodly gorgeous in my opinion and compliments the model's skin tone perfectly. I know it won't look like this on me, but we do share close to the same skin tone. I truly hope the ombre comes out :/ I'm a perfectionist when it comes to detail and colors, so the littlest thing wrong (which may not be wrong in someone else's eyes) will bug me like nobody's business! Anybody else out there had a bad experience with ombre or it just wasn't meant for you? What was the process you used in order to get rid of the ombre effect or did you go to a salon and get it professionally corrected?
I currently use a deep contitioning treatment once a week and a nourishing serum after every wash. I am using Living Proof's Restore Mask and Josie Maran's Argan Oil Hair Serum. I have about two or three uses left of each but was wondering if anyone had any other suggestions or could recommend something they consider better quality. I do love these products but am always open to change. Thanks in advance!
So I have pretty long-ish hair. My hair is also VERY VERY thick, not course but still pretty thick. It gets damaged easily; it gets split ends easily; it dries out easily; etc. I could go days, weeks, and months without using heat on it, which i have done in the past, and my hair will still turn into a frizz disaster! It gets poofy too. With summer being here, I'm debating if I should get a hair cut or grow it longer. I feel like no matter what I do, my hair will still get frizzy and dry. To give you an idea of how long my hair is now, it's just along the top of my breasts. Knowing the background of my hair, should I cut it short or keep it long? Keep in mind, I would only cut it to shoulder length because cutting it shorter than that is a disaster for me (as learned from the past). Thanks!
I have to say, for bleaching my hair by myself three times in a month, my hair is feeling pretty good! I'm starting to run low on my Wen cleansing treatment and I'm looking to try something new. So from what I've learned, Carol's Daughter and Alterna are the way to go when it comes to bleached or just dry and damaged hair in general. I can't decide between the two and which product to try. I don't need any more oils, I've been doing over night olive oil treatments and putting Moroccan oil and Argan oil in as well. I could use your suggestions on a shampoo and conditioner please! I've been using wen cleansing conditioner for years, i forgot what else was out there lol ^.^
This must be a really stupid question. But i can't seem to do it properly. How do you do a messy bun? And by messy bun, I don't mean that weird loop looking that sticks out of your head. I mean those messy buns that look effortless, but probably isn't. Any specific directions to make one? I have very straight, blackish/brown hair that is thinning (OMG NO!!! My nightmares recently have truly been about it!) and reaches the middle of my back. I part it so the hair falls on my right side (You can probably tell by my photos). Are there any (VER) quick, (VERY) simple hairdos that I can do that works for school? I suck at braids. I can only ropebraid, fishtail, and do the simple braid. I prefer not using hairpins but if I must, only a few. I don't like using hairspray, even though I use it a lot anyways. Thanks!! So, so sorry for the long post!!
if you've seen any of my previous threads, you know I have bleached hair & it is dry frizzy and damaged. I haven't used any hot tools on my hair since I bleached it. I think its been long enough. I'd really like to try to straighten my hair soon, getting really sick of my curls every day! I wont dare put my chi on my hair though, its too old and it takes too high of a temperature to get my hair straight :/ I saw some good reviews on youtube for coolway http://www.coolwayhair.com/ but I like to compare and reviews things before committing to purchasing them. any recommendations?! <3
Anyone know of some good home made hair or facial masks ?? I've been putting olive oil in my hair and my hair is loving it!! Since I recently bleached my hair I've been giving it a lot of TLC and was wondering if there are any other home remedies I could try. I wanted to add some egg to the olive oil, I heard that is good but I wasn't really sure how to go about doing it and putting it in my hair.. should my hair be wet, or dry? and has anyone actually tried putting mayonnaise in their hair?? thanks in advance! <3
I have tried many different styles of hair- in my profile picture from my wedding four years ago it may be long and black, but right now it is short, lavender, and undercut. (the style is very similar to that of the singer, Pink) I'd like your recommendations for products to get a spiky, fun look. Something that would be strong enough to do a mohawk if I desired. Something not too sticky! Thanks!
Hello! I have naturally curly hair, and I'm all about embracing it. Unfortunatley, I have yet to find something that really works on my hair. My hair is more wavy-curly. My roots can tend to be a bit oilier, and the rest of my hair is ok. Like most curly haired girls, I also have a little bit of a frizz problem. Right now, I put in Herbal Esssence Volumizing Mousse, and blow dry it with a diffuser. It looks great after this, but when I sleep on it, it doesn't look too good. Basically, I'm looking for something that can help maintain the curls until the next time I wash my hair. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
I am looking for two different products. I need a product that I can apply before I style my hair, something that adds shine and smooths my hair out, but the product can't be heavy and weigh my hair down. I want this product to help improve my hair. The second product I need is finishing product...Something that adds shine, maybes tames the fly aways. My hair is naturally straight and fine, it gets oily around the roots, and its color treated, so its a bit dry. I am having trouble finding products that can benefit my hair while adding shine, without leaving my hair feeling heavy. Can somebody help?
Hi , I am looking for a new flat iron. My hairs are long, healthy and wavy.I am looking for Flat iron to get rid of frizz and to have smoothness/style. Which flat iron and product do you guys recommend ,that won't damage hairs ?
Hi, I got a blow out in which they used the Living proof no frizz products. I loved how my hair looked, so I bought the products. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I tried it myself, and my hair does not look sleek and frizz free. I'm thinking it might be an error with the amount I used of primer? I used the shampoo and conditioner. Then after towel drying my hair, I added a quarter size amount of primer from the top of my head down to my roots. After blow drying my hair with a rounded brush, the hair on top of my head looked matted at flat. It also looked a little greasy at the top to about 1/3 the way down. A few hours later I ended up adding the straightening spray (blue bottle) and straightening my hair because it just looked so greasy. What should I have done differently? Thanks
I recently got a pixie cut, and plan on keeping it short. But, my hair now gets very oily very quickly, so I have to wash it every day. I've heard about some Bumble & Bumble products, but don't know what to try. What is a good daily shampoo that will clean my hair enough that it won't be too greasy to use texturizing products?
I'm wanting to get highlights in my hair. My hair is medium brown with a reddish tint in sunlight. I'm thinking I want to go pretty light. As light as i can go while still looking natural. (no zebra stripes or platinum or anything). I have fair skin (don't tan) and green eyes. Im just wondering if getting highlights would wash me out? A girl in my class has blonde hair and she got highlights and they made her look sick! Also, what colors should I ask for? Caramel, honey, cool, ash, etc? Thanks!
i have bleached hair and my ends are very split and very dry! i need something that will bring them back to life. i already cut my dead ends off but they keep splitting. i could also use a lightening product. anyone have any recommendations? doesn't have to be from sephora. please help! ive gone through two bottles of http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?s kuId=364992&productId=P6038 it helped but not as much as i hoped. i've also been using wen http://www.sephora.com/sweet-almond-mint-cleansing -conditioner-P374588?skuId=1444934 like 3 times a week for a deep conditioner but its not doing much, and some times my hair feels gummy after i rinse it...maybe im leaving it in too long ?
My hair is pretty thin, so I am interested in hearing opinions from all you beauty lovers!!! I actually couldn't find any posts about this anywhere in the forum, and I was thinking that this might be pretty relevant to some of us. Love or hate? Does anyone have, want, or loathe? Any thoughts or advice on this matter is appreciated!
Hey Guys and Gals! I need help finding the best black haircare products for myself and my family. We kinda deal with dry hair/scalp at certain times... And i would love to know what cures that. I also need shine. Whatever helps, Helps!
Hey everybody, I'm pretty stumped when it comes to figuring out for myself what works for my hair and how to properly manage it. My hair's thick, oily and frizzy. Right now I use a shampoo with k etoconazole (that's the stuff in Nizoral) 3 times a week for when its super oily and or built up above my neck and pretty basic conditioner. I don't get conditioner near my scalp, but (I know this is weird) it can get kind of waxy with buildup and oily within a day. Any tips for preventing this/methods to properly wash my hair without getting buildup? I think how I dry it can contribute to oiliness too, so if there's a proper way to dry it/brush it so my hair doesn't get concentrated oily areas, please let me know. Also I'd like to get a defined wavy look when it dries. I've not had much luck trying out mousse or various curl gels. Instead it looks messy. I'm trying to get the hang of easy things and learn how to "properly" apply a product to my hair and use it.
Has anyone with color treated & oily hair tried this and liked it, your experience? I tend to have oily hair so 2-3 days is as far as i can go. But since i do color my hair ive tried to find a sulfate free shampoo to maintain my color. im currently using a few different ones from matrix, and while it doesn't fade it i thought it would be better to have the option to alternate Ive tried wen and its not for me, the problem i find with sulfate free is that it doesn't fully clean my scalp especially since its oily. wen after a while built up and weighed my hair down. Right now i use it solely as a conditioner and it works great that way. Anyone use living proof? i am thinking of trying the small size.
I have curly, frizzy, dry hair that I subject to a little too much heat styling. I really need a new shampoo that hydrates without weighing my hair down and leaves my hair feeling CLEAN. I hate the feeling of product in my hair, especially around my roots. I don't really care about price if it gets the job done. Thank you!
i know, disgusting. but i've suffered with it for months! and i've been using head and shoulders which makes it worse, i also dye my hair black every couple months, but i use garnier oila (the one with no ammonia) does anyone have any home remedys or something? or better shampoo?
I know there is a ton of favorite makeup product posts, but what about hair? As most of us know our hair is one of the most important features and has to be handled with care. Why is hair so important? Well, it depicts what style of makeup we're going for, what the occasion is, and sometimes (most of the time) how our mood is affected throughout the day/night. When we have bad hair days, it seems like whatever we do that day is just not that fabulous. However, on good hair days we feel on top of this world! I'd like to see what products make you most happy because "Ain't nobody got time for"...bad hair days!
