Dry shampoo for red colored hair
I have seen many threads about dry shampoos and which are best for different scalp and hair type, but haven't found anything regarding thin, color treated, especially red hair.  If anyone has a recommendation I would love to hear it, including pointing me to an earlier conversation a missed.  Thanks for your time.

So, Violet or Grey?
I've just recently cut my hair for random reasons, and I've added a little touch of grey to it, which I really liked, I want to do the whole thing a greyish tone, or maybe a light lavender grey tone. Yes, or no?

How to get a high ponytail that STAYS
So I see tutorials on how to create gorgeous high ponytails with volume. I can not seem to master this.  When I pin the poof it always falls flat within seconds and the ponytail always sinks down and doesn't stay high.  Any advice?  I've seen stylist videos where they use this tool where it's like a hair band with bobby pins on the side. I'm so curious about this.    Thanks in advance

IGK Live Hair Consultation on 3/22
I am excited to announce our first ever Live Hair Consultation on BeautyTalk! Mark your calendars because this Wednesday, 3/22 from 10 am - 2 pm PST, the founders of IGK will be on BeautyTalk answering all of your hair questions.    This probably sounds similar to Live Chats and that's because it is. The difference is that Live Consultations are personalized to your hair and much longer than a Live Chat (FOUR hours). Because everyone's hair is different, we are encouraging participants to upload a photo of their hair along with their question. What we want is for you to feel like you're getting the (virtual) salon treatment so show them your hair and tell them about your hair type and hair goals for the best advice! The Founders of IGK are a group of four talented hairstylists who really know their stuff so they  can help you master your frizz, give tips on curling your hair or even give advice on the right cut for your face shape.      Be sure to follow the link below this Wednesday, 3/22! We'll be live from 10 am - 12 pm PST:  http://community.sephora.com/t5/Ask-The-Experts/Li ve-Hair-Consultation-with-IGK/m-p/2727916   See you there!

Seriously Heat Damaged Natural Hair
I've been natural forever but up until a few years ago struggled with excessive straightening. Now I usually only straighten my hair November- April. After my previous flat iron my hair will not curl. I've tried DIY masks and deep conditioners. Nothing is working. I refuse to big chop has anyone else ever experienced this after just one flat iron? I was using a new flat iron the NUME I can't remember which one I gave it away after this experience.

help for fine wavy hair
HI all, I have wavy hair that is also fine (not coarse at all) and there is a lot of it total. My issue is that it gets frizzy and out of control but all the curl or wavy hair products I have used make it look and feel dirty.  So far I have tried curl diva- dirty feeling, and big sexy hair- frizzy from Sephora.  Do people have any other options?  I would like for it to feel and look clean but not like I just rolled out of bed.  I currently don't blow dry, just finger comb and go.  I also wash every three days.    Thanks!

fine breaking hair
I had two balayage treatments 4 months apart and my hair has been breaking at the mid shaft since then.  My hair is fine and straight and my hair was lightened with bleach. I rarely use heat styling and use a UV protectant spray and Marrakesh oil after showering. I shampoo/condition every 2-3 days with Joico's KPak Colour Therapy shampoo and conditioner.  I need advice on a leave in conditioner or other treatment to help my hair stop breaking!    Thanks!

curly hair
I want to be able to style my hair in updos and braids and things like that, but I it's so hard for me. I have layered hair so I don't want pieces sticking out every which way if I do normal braids. I also struggle with my curly frizz. I don't know what to wash it with or what to put in it to help it not curl so badly and to keep the frizz to a minimum.

Styling Products for Fine Hair?
Hi everyone, Would love to get loopy hair looks out of my fine hair. it is shoulder length, naturally curly/holds a curl.   I feel pretty good about the products I put on and in  my hair for straight and curly looks but what about styling tools?    Is anyone with fine hair using this tool or something like it? For long loops, should I be using a brush type product or more of a curling iron?   http://www.sephora.com/blowout-babe-thermal-brush- P396012?skuId=1703560&icid2=products grid 396012#pdp-reviews Would love any and all advice.

Living Proof vs Moroccan Oil
Hi,   I switched from Kerastase to Living Proof about 2 years ago.  At this time I was dying my hair red.  Living Proof has been great for my hair.  No split ends, etc.  Last year I started going really gray so you guessed it - I'm dying my hair blonde.  I know going blonde is harsher on my hair and I'm having flyaway and frizz issues.  My hair is naturally wavy.  I've been reading on Moroccan oil and it seems to be a miracle product.  Would Moroccan oil work for me? I really need something to cut down on my frizz - what would you recommend.  Preferably sulfate free.   Thanks,

Help! I'm a 30 Year Old Virgin...to hair colour.
For a full 30 years I was totally satisfied with my long, easy to manage brown hair. It was fine. I cut it myself, I watched you tube videos, I played with layers, bangs, etc. But then...I had a baby, and I just don't feel like I have a fun look anymore. So now I'd like to try hair colour.   My dream is to go from warm brown to ash blonde ombré. How realistic is this? Can any beauty expert tell me before I make the leap to a salon consult? (I'm in the boonies, this is a commitment.) Is ombré still a thing? Are there any new trends in natural hair colour?

My hair is long & heavy; how do I get it to hold curl?
My hair goes down to the top of my hips, and it's fairly thick as well. I don't color it either, so it's pretty soft and tends to fall pin straight. I am having the worst time getting the curls to hold the longer my hair gets. No amount of hairspray of any kind has proved to maintain hardly any style. I need something that will give me texture and prime my hair so it will hold better. I've found that anything that smooths it is a complete disaster for my curls. Any suggestions??

Natural Hair Growth After Chemo
hey guys, so i was talking to my dad and he's been trying to get more hair regrowth. he always had a full head of hair (he's why my mane is so lustrous lmao) even after chemo a while back, but he still wanted to try to get more regrowth if he could. the only thing is that he's the opposite of me and wants to keep things natural with no "chemicals". are there any products anyone could recommend that won't scare him off by sounding too sciencey? lol. even stuff like hairbrushes would be great.  i've never needed to delve into the world of hair growth because i've always had too much of it tbh .

What is included in the AMIKA #TheWiseOne Switch Kit Customizable Set?
I bought this last week, and was so excited to try out the new curler and especially to use the 3 Amika minis that are supposed to come with the kit. To my surprise, I never received the 3 hair minis and called customer service to they said that it is actually NOT included in the set?! But it's shown in the picture and they are listed in the "what comes with this set" in the description. I am seriously shocked with Sephoras deceitful advertising. I am just wondering if anyone else purchased this product and if so, did you receive the Amika 3 minis? Thanks!

Beauty waves/loose curls: Need recommendations for a new curling iron/wand
So, most posts I've seen on BT are a little older, and I wanted to get updated opinions/recommendations from everyone. I'm in search of a curling wand or iron that is a 32mm barrel or 1.25 inches. I have a NumeTitanium wand (which is a piece of junk). My Nume does awesome curls, but they die down and just give my hair a slight bend by the end of the day. I want to maintain the beach waves for at least two days. I have long thick hair. Most curling iron's I have tried just don't cut it- my beach waves/curls are gone by the end of the day. I don't want to spend more than $150 (unless it's from Ulta because I have 2000 points I want to redeem which equal to $125). Thanks in advance!   EDIT: I also live in Miami where humidity is 100% year-round.
