Hello, I am in desperate need of some suggestions. My hair is naturally very dark, and past my shoulders. I get bored with it (like every girl does) and switch it up. I've had highlights, balayage, my hair bleached. You name it, I have done it. I recently got a wave perm.( I thought it was going to be a good idea for summer so I can just get up and go) It absolutely fried my hair. I am currently using Redken for my shampoo and conditioner. After the perm my hair needed some TLC so I purchased Mudslide by Drybar and it has helped some. Some parts of my hair are frizzy from the damage, and it just doesn't feel healthy anymore. The curls from the perm aren't even there anymore, so I end up straightening or curing it everyday. I need a good everyday shampoo and conditioner to bring my dry damaged hair back to life.
I have fine hair that I'm required to wear up for my job. It's still semi-wet when I put it up because it takes forever to dry and I'm not going to blow dry it everyday just to put it up into a bun. Yes, I try to make it loose but it can't be messy. I'm also outdoors a lot so my hair sees the sun, wind, rain, etc. I'm looking for a product that will protect my hair from the elements and the constant up do. I'll admit, due to how fine it is, I even wear it up on my days off and especially to the gym.
Hi Beauties! I'm planning my first trip to Europe (Hungary, mainly) in a couple months and am concerned with being able to use my heat tools...I have a lot of hair that I try to take particular care of, and I'm attending a wedding - so I need to look polished. I have a Velecta Paramount hair dryer, an amika Polished Perfection Straightening Brush, and their Switch Kit curling iron. I mention the specific tools I have so that I can ask the following: Has anyone traveled to EU with these specific tools, or similar? Did you use a converter - which one? Has anyone tried just ordering new tools from a EU seller so that the tools have the right hardware? If so, any suggestions on similar quality tools to look at? I'm also curious to see if anyone has other thoughts/ideas/suggestions on the topic that I haven't thought to ask about. Thanks!!
Will sephora restock the drybar total blowout bundle or another similar bundle?? I just ran across it on sephora.com yesterday but it was out of stock. My hair dryer just died, and I am looking to try to drybar dryer along with some of their other products. It was limited edition and I have called to speak with online rep - they said it was still there so they didn't think it was discontinued but there was no restock date. Thanks!
a thread to talk about your hair goals / experiments / fails / wins / products etc. consider this a RANDOM THOUGHTS: HAIR thread when i joined BT years ago, i was at the beginning phases of growing out a shaved head, after a decade of cropped pixie cuts and avant garde styles as well as defying my natural texture. my hair is past my shoulders now, and am fully immersed in this world of hair care and styling that i had been absent from for so long. this thread can be about anything. thoughts, questions, anecdotes that you feel like sharing but for whatever reason don't want to start an independent thread about. cheers !
I am looking for a good heat protectant to apply to my air dried hair before straightening or curling. I have long, wavy, thick hair. It is color treated. I am currently using Living Proof spray but am not a super fan of the spray.
Hi, Currently I am using Ouai Smooth Shampoo and Condition for my hair but so many times I feel my hair isn't clean well. Also, when I use oil before shampoo, my hair has oil after the wash. I feel my shampoo isn't mix well with my hair, but not sure about it. P reviously i was using Moroccanoil Shampoo and Conditioner. Also, I feel after start using Ouai shampoo, I have more hair fall. I have tried to use pantene shampoo to see my hair reaction and I feel that shampoo mix well and clears my hair.But that one have sulfate in it. Could you please recommend me best shampoo for my hair? My hair type: I have frizzy hair (Frizz sticks only for wash day) Little bit curly (Waves in hair) Lots of hair fall
I have such straight fine hair that never wants to do anything! I'm looking for products to add volume/texture to my hair that makes it more lively, rather than so dull and boring! Any suggestions would be wonderful!
I initially requested ombre highlights with a "funky" color. The salon I went to told me the only way to do this was to bleach the hair first, then to color. I agreed accept the highlights came out looking more like two giant skunk stripes. I also had to re-color my hair weekly because the color kept fading from a deep plum to a washed out pink/red. It drove me nuts so I decided to do something natural and permanent. I went to a different salon and they assured me that my hair would not be further damaged. I had more highlights put in with bleach to blend out the thick stripes and then color was applied over the lightened hair. That washed out after 2 shampoos and my hair is completely damaged. I'm so confused because I thought permanent hair color would not wash out, let alone in just 2 washes! Did I get ripped off? Also, is there a way to color hair without bleaching first? Thank you!!!
Hello all! I have been using drugstore shampoo/conditioners, nothing expensive or too fancy for pretty much my whole life. I have tried more expensive shampoos/conditioners but have never seen a significant change in my hair to fork over the extra money. It's funny because I spend a lot on styling products, but cringe for some reason over the high prices of salon shampoos! I think it's just because I want to make sure they actually do something for me. Do you all think that the higher end shampoo and conditioners are actually worth it? If so what do you like? Or what do you like from drugstores? I have very thick, wavy, blonde hair that I wash 2-3 a week. Would love any recommendations!
hey all, i have long, thick, blonde hair and i need some ideas for hairstyles for prom! I don't want to go all up but i definitely dont want to wear it all down. please share pictures of hairstyles that are sort of half up/half down types so i can get some ideas of what I want to do. thanks! PS-Here's a few pictures of me to go off of what you think would look best<3 and here is the dress(: it will be sewn together in the middle so it's a one piece dress, and i'm not sure what types of accessories i want
my curls will not hold for the life of me. I have the T3 whirl trio. I prep my hair with Bumble and bumble invisible oil primer and B+B flexible hold hairspray, and I also add a bit more spray when I'm done and my curls still fall out by the end of the day. It's so frustrating! Any tips on what other products to use that won't make my hair crunchy from hairspray?
Hi, Everyone! Does anyone have a recommendation for a shampoo/conditioner for sensitive scalp? I've tried the "Jason" products and so far, they've worked well (and are affordable!), but feel that they're not the best for my hair. I was also looking at the "Human+Kind" products, on the Sephora website...any feedback about these or any other products?? Thanks!!!
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.
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?
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
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/Live-Hair-Consultation-with-IGK/m-p/2727916
See you there!
am planning to get hair lace wig since i have light hair and i want long curly look, for daily use for long duration. what is your recommendation? is it safe? does it affect my real hair? also can i swim in it? which ones/sites you recommend?
I'm total virgin when it comes to dye, I also have very long (aka old) hair. I've ordered the DryBar Blonde Ale shampoo and conditioner to fight brassiness from creeping in. Does anyone have suggestions for other products that would be helpful? Im fair and cool toned with blue eyes and naturally brunette; what make up might compliment my new look?
I LOVED Wen, but I see Sephora no longer carries it. Is there a replacement for it that works like it does? I have never been as happy with my hair as I have been with Wen, so I'd love to find something very similar.
I like to wear my hair down with half upbraids but they barely ever work out. Are there any suggested hairstyles that I could do in 10 minutes or less? P.S. 1 or 2 braids will not work because I have layered hair.
