Made a terrible hair mistake...
I have a lot of baby hairs that stick in every which direction. I hated it so a couple months ago I plucked some of them out. Well I think I got a little pluck happy because I plucked a lot out and my hairline looked really stupid. Now all of them are growing back in and it's getting really stubbly and it looks awful. I want to try to grow it all back in but it's so embarrassing with all this stubble. Any tips on what to do? I feel so awful about myself and so self conscious I know it was a stupid decision

Question about haircolor
I have some questions, trying to color my own hair and save money. I bought the color i know my stylist uses, Matrix 6warm and i bought the 30 vol developer. But i didn't take into consideration i had highlights done since then, my hair is naturally a dark brown. It has some new growth and my highlights are a light brown yellowish with hints of orange. Im trying to get my hair like either picture, i like them both. I also bought a Matrix 7ash color, i was going to mix the two but not sure if it will give me the color I want. I was also wanting to know if i should use vol30, would that dry my hair out?

Can anyone suggest a dry shampoo (from personal experience) for medium thickness and black hair?
I haven't tried any and since I work weekdays I hate washing my hair everyday. Like I mentioned, I have black hair that's medium in thickness, and get's oily after a day and a half after washing. Are there any brands someone can suggest from experience that won't leave residue?

It's been so long since I used anythingv else that my hair has just gotten used to it and I was thinking about trying Living Proof. What do you all think? Is Wen worth the cost that we pay? I am spending aboutv159.00 a month for all his products. I know that there have been many questions about this product but not one like this that I could find. Thanks in advance , Dan

Weird curly hair!
My problem is that I'm not sure what my hair is anymore and I don't know what to do to solve it. It is very thick hair and the under layers of my hair are curly, not pin curls but big curls that are very gentle but the top layer of my hair is the exact opposite. It's frizzy and doesn't curl maybe a slight wavy. I wonder if there is any way to get the top layer of my hair to be curly too without using a billion products? Please help!

Hair stil coming out
Yep, 3rd post back-to back! lol I am trying to put myself back together again! lol SO, I am doing the detox, eating diff., taking supplements & vitamins, and working out ( and yes it hasn't been that long)..... but I am over this whole hair thing'e.   I went and saw my derma today & he said it could take a year b4 my hair bounces back (gets out of shed mode, & it has been 10 months). He had my blood taken to check some things, did a "pull-test", and took some hair to look at under a scope (or whatever). In the meantime he said I could go get Men's 5% Foam Rogaine (not sure what the active ingredient is yet) & massage it in my hair everyday.  So, here are my main questions: -Do y'all think I should wait for the test to come back? -Do you know of another treatment w/ the same active ingredient(s) that may work better & maybe make my hair grow faster (think I am gonna grow it all the way out again & NOT cut it for a hot minute ) lol ?     Any input would be great! Thanks!

Products to use on dry (as in not wet) hair
Does anyone have any recommendations for products - particularly heat protectors or styling products - to use prior to curling dry hair?    In order for my fine, straight hair to hold any curl, it has to be at least 2-3 days old, so I'm rarely putting products in wet or damp hair and am looking for something that won't weigh my hair down or leave it feeling greasy prior to curling. Are any products geared specifically towards applying to dry hair?    I tried searching and all I came up with were threads from people who had dry (as in not oily) hair.  Spoiler (Highlight to read)

Q. Is there a hairspray/spray that you don't have to wash out??
I'm black and I get my hair relaxed every 5 or 6 months and I don't wash my hair in between. But when I want to curl my hair and want it to hold I need to use hairspray but I cant because I'll just end up having to wash it out because it'll get sticky or matted and I can't do that. Is there anything out there that could help??

Products for dry and products for wet
Hello! I'm looking for some easy healthy products to use. My hair is VERY thick and it is long and layered. I don't usually do much to it styling-wise unless I'm going out. I don't even really do it for work. I'm looking for first, recommendations for if I shower in the morning, that I can spray/rub/dab/comb through/etc on my wet hair to kind of give it an extra advantage. I usually don't blow dry unless I have to...my hair has a weird wave to it and does tend to frizz, so I'm looking for a serum or something to help control that. I'd also like to find something to put on my hair when it is dry. I've used the paul mitchell heat protectant for when I style, but I guess I'm looking for something that can do the same thing, kind of bring out shine, tame frizz, give me a good look on the go. Hopefully that's not very confusing! I guess I will add the my ends are pretty dry and I tend to every now and then get dry scalp with the weather changing, but just taming my hair and bringing out the shine and trying to make it look healthier is my main concern. Thanks!!!!

Help! My frizzy hair has suddenly gotten out of control!!
I have extremely thick just past shoulder length hair. It's kind of in between wavy and straight (although I do straighten my hair a bit, never stick straight). All of a sudden in the last 2 weeks it's gotten incredibly frizzy! I'm assuming that means my hair is dry? I use a very conditioning conditioner (if that makes sense) but I just use whichever shampoo. Any suggestions? Please!

Sulfate free, Salt free, Color Preserving, and Hydrating Shampoo/Conditioner?
After getting a demi-permanent glaze on my hair this week, I've been searching for a new shampoo and conditioner. I've got a long list, and I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas?   My current hair: long, fine, and the ends are overprocessed. I dyed my hair bright red for many years.  I've added an amber glaze (darker than my natural shade), and want it to last as long as possible.   What I'm looking for: Sulfate free: This should be relatively obvious (but I just learned, for instance, that Aveda's color preserving line has sulfates) Salt free: This is a new one to me, but my stylist insisted that sodium chloride is deadly for color Color preserving: I want to protect my color, especially since it's been processed so many times Hydrating: Bumble and Bumble, for example, technically meets the above criteria, but my stands are straight-up parched after using it.   Does this product exist, or am I asking for too dang much? Thanks for the suggestions/insight! Spoiler (Highlight to read)

Bellami Hair Curler set (6 in 1)
Has anyone ever used one of those? If so how do you like it? This company has a code available pretty much all the time for 160 off on 289.99$.. but shady part is that if you use the code that is advertised on their website you don't get product guarantee and NO exchanges and returns. And they charge you 40$ shipping.  Who pays 289.99$ full price when you see a shining code next to the product? such a **bleep** gimmick.   Are their products actually that good (Hot tools) that people overlook these things.  I just wanted to see what you guys thought about the brand, their products and if you think its worth it to buy their curling irons (I'm on a lookout for one).

Off topic: KQC Thermal Shine Spray
Hello, fellow Sephora devotees. I have a question about a product that Sephora doesn't sell, but I was hoping some of you may have tried it in the past (or use it currently) and will thus be able to answer these questions. The product is the KQC Thermal Shine Spray, and I'm debating over purchasing it. So, let's brass these tacks, shall we? I have read that you can use the spray on wet AND dry hair, but what I can't find out is if the spray only works (i.e. makes hair glossy/shiny) if a heat tool is used on said hair in conjunction with the spray. Essentially, I want to know if I could use the spray on wet hair, let it air dry, and still get the wonderful glossy results as if I had dried using, say, a hairdryer. Or, if I could use the spray on already-dry hair and get the gloss without using a heated styling tool as well. Anything you all know about this spray would be greatly appreciated information! Thanks in advance.

Rita Hazan Root Concealer - does anyone use it?
So after trying to color my hair with a demi permanent that did not work    yesterday I picked up the Rita Hazan Root concealer at Sephora (I was there for the Wen shampoo, that I want to try, but that's another story).   The sales girl said wonders about the root concealer but, after trying it on a tiny section, I'm under the impression that it will completely ruin any shine I might still have left...   Do any of you use this? What are your feelings about it?

HELP-Scalp Residue?
I've been using Shampoo and Conditioner from Living Proof for almost a year now and am very happy with it. Over the last 6 months, I'd tried to stray away from daily shampoos, and generally wash every other day. I have very thick hair, yet it's somewhat fine in texture. Over the last couple of months, I've been noticing something weird- the crown of my scalp sometimes itches and when I scratch, I get a white reside under my finger nails. It's almost granular, not at all flaky like dandruff. And you can't see anything when you look closely at the scalp. What could this be? And what can I do to stop it?   I've tried Medicated Selsan Blue and it really has no effect.
