Best product for hair flyaways?
So I've noticed lately that my flyaways and "frizz" have become more bothersome in my opinion. For reference, I have super thick brunette hair (chest length), and actually very minimal volume at my roots. Rubbing lotion in my hands or shine serum or other drugstore products don't really work, and I don't like to use gel or anything in my hair because it's easily noticeable. Are there any holy grail products out there for frizz/flyaways? It doesn't help that I'm in the middle of a humid, hot, Michigan summer, but my hair has been bothering me for a while lately. Any advice would be appreciated!

whats your haircare routine?
So, I'm noticing my hair care routine is almost as many products as my skin care routine (well, not quite) but it got me wondering what everyone does for their hair in the morning and night.   In the evening, when its a wash night, I will use a tad of hair oil on my ends and leave in conditioner.  Then I will put in a heat protectant and blow dry my hair straight.  I love to finish it with a shine spray, LOVE the Oribe  texture shine spray I sampled recently.   OR I will put in a curley hair product and let my hair dry naturally at night.   ** this is the part I am still needing help with, as my wavy hair usually ends up frizzing on the ends, and looking so blah without added help from a curling iron in the morning.  Then I am dumbfounded as to what to do for my hair in the morning.     My morning routine usually consists of a bit of dry shampoo and some texturizing / shine spray.     Once a week, I wash my hair with a purple shampoo and deep condition my hair with the purple Aussie conditioner.  LOVE.

Q. Can you help me tackle my frizzy, dry, unmangiable hair?
I find myself constantly fustrated with my hair- it's an absaloute nightmare and I can't do anything with it! It's not curly or wavy but it's not really straight either- it has a few kinks/waves in it which look quite strange. It's incredibly thick and coarse and very dry as well as extremely frizzy and puffy. I get really stressed out putting it in a pony tail or bun because my hair just won't do as it's told and falls out and sticks out everywhere! I've tried so many high street anti-frizz products I've lost count, but none of them really seem to do anything to my hair- I'm under the impression that they're really aimed at people with finer hair than me who just have a few flyaways. I used to straighten my hair every day which was extremely hard work, and even though my hair is so thick and strong it could handle it, I've noticed that it's in slightly better condition in it's natural state. All I do with my hair nowerdays is just wash it, every 5 days or so, with whatever shampoo and conditioner my parents have bought and put a bit of coconut oil on the ends of it as it's drying (which does absaloutely nothing but it makes me feel better :') ). I let it dry naturally as it turns into a giant puff ball when hair dried. My hair would look really lovely and voluminous if I could just tame it; I'd love to put together a hair care routine suitable for my hair but I don't know where to start! I feel like it would be nice wavy, like it does have a few waves in it which can look nice on the right day. I'm also vegan so it would be great if the products reccomended could be cruelty free. Any ideas? I'm so sorry for babbling on, any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

New haircolor and how to take care of it?
Hello! So, I'm going to be dyeing my hair for the first time ever soon. I'm kinda scared, really. I have very thick, dark brown hair that's fairly long. When I say it's thick... I'm not kidding. I've broken who knows how many hair ties and brushes and combs. I'm very pale with a cool undertone and blue eyes, but I have central heterochromia; green around the centers of my eyes. I'm trying to figure out what haircolor would be best, and how do I take care of my hair?

Curly Hair, Cold/Dry Weather.
I live in the northeast, which means cold dry winters and hot humid summers. The latter really works for my hair - I love my natural curls in the humidity. However, it is May now and it's still cold/ dry out. My hair in the winter turns into this haystack of flat static-y waves that I can't style without hot tools. Any product suggestions on keeping my summer curls in this cold/dry weather?    Thanks!!

Hair Tools: Blow Dryer vs. Straightener
Hi everyone,   I am looking for some advice on whether to get a blow dyer or a straightener. I have shoulder length hair and all I really want is to look presentable (read no frizzy mess). I hear a lot of good things about the Drybar dryer and the straightener, so I am debating on getting one or the other. I do not have naturally straight or fine hair.   If you have both tools regardless of brand, please share which you think is more beneficial to your hair routine.   Thank you!

Coarse hair finds relief!!!
I recently tried a sample of Rita HAzan's new weekly recovery remedy, 2 step treatment to be used weekly. Is there any reason I could not use it with every shampoo?  I wash every 2 -3 days and have well water as well as am menopausal, with colored red hair.   This is the first product that has consistently given me swingy, shiny, soft hair , much like I get at the salon.  I plan to use it regularly unless I hear otherwise,   Thanks!  DrMom14

Best Products for Fine Hair
I have posted a conversation asking for advice about my fine hair. I got a haircut recently and I told the hairstylist that I suffer from itchy scalp. She said that it might be because my scalp is oily. I have done a coconut oil mask. I usually don't have the time to style my hair. I usually let it dry naturally and I always have frizz. It also looks flat. I have been eyeing the Living Proof Oil for frizz prevention. My sister decided to try some products on me last night since I will need someone's help in doing my hair for my graduation. She used Bumble & Bumble powder (dry shampoo?) and Moroccan Oil spray before she curled it. It feels nice. But any other products that work well? For itchy scalp and frizz?

My hair doesn't grow!
  Please please please help!!!! I am 24 years old with fine, straight, blonde hair. I am a natural blonde, but I started highlighting my hair only 3 years ago, and my hairdresser is very conscious of my problem and concerns with hair growth so she isn't bleaching my hair off. I only get my hair done maybe every 2 months, and its mild highlighting. I only style my hair maybe once to twice a week, and I only wash it about the same, once to twice a week.  When I was 22 I was hired to be a model in a hair show and the artist colored my hair to be platinum blonde and cut it into a blunt bob by my shoulders. Since that time my hair HAS NOT GROWN AT ALL! it dry and breaks off at the end. It feels full and looks healthy on the top but is stringy and spare towards the bottom. The pieces around my face are about 2 inches shorter than the pieces around the neck/shoulders. Ive tried letting it breathe and grow but nothing worked so for the past year I've been wearing tape-in extensions to hide what I am so frustrated and embarrassed about. Ive asked a lot of hair stylist as to what I should do and 98% the response I get is "oh wow thats weird, just use heat protectant." That isn't going to solve my problem, I need a regiment or something to stick to and be consistent with that WILL work! Ive tried, (for a short while because I just grew frustrated, for about a month): Ovation Cell hair therapy Olaplex Biotin Natural exotic Oils as hair masks Pureology and just not doing anything with it at all..   please help me! i am sooooo clueless when it comes to hair!

New Trend - "Women Shaving Facial Hairs"...Let's Discuss
I’ve been hearing lately the new trend “women shaving their facial hair”.  As for me, I am Indian and have been dealing with dark black hair for years and years.  I have been waxing for several years.  But lately I have come across things like Dermaplane which you get done at the salon which is pretty expensive or you can buy a Brow Razor and do it at home on dry skin.  I have watched so many Beauty Guru’s who have been just recently started doing this or have been doing this for years.   And the myth of it growing back thick and coarse is totally untrue.  I wax my facial hairs…my sideburns are probably the worst and I have always had issues with them.  Many of the women use the Brow Razors for peach fuzz.  I certainly don’t have peach fuzz on my sides but yes on my cheeks and stuff.  I know there are alternate options like laser hair removal, but not a lot of us can afford it.  And this seems to be a cheaper and inexpensive option.   I have been researching and am looking into buying those Brow Razors myself.   Just wondering what everyone’s take on this is.  I would love to hear everyone’s feedback and comments if they are currently doing this, what the pros and cons are and if its beneficial to you.

Best Styling Product for Thick, Naturally Wavy Hair (Normal to Semi-Coarse Texture)
I have very thick, brown hair with some natural wave in it. Prone to dryness. Texture-wise, it is semi-coarse. It holds curl easily and gets BIG in humidity.    I am getting my hair cut shoulder-length, with a fair amount of layers. I'm pretty low-maintenance, so I would plan to style it wavy be either (a) using a diffuser or (b) letting it air dry. While I want to encourage wave, I am  really worried about avoiding the "triangle effect" (which my hair is definitely prone to!).    What styling products are best for preventing frizz, but creating some definition and separation when I diffuse or air dry? People have alternately suggested that I use mousse, cream, or a gloss - so confusing! I am also open to using a combination of styling products ( i.e. spraying with a leave-in conditioner and then using a styling product).    Please help!!

Need help with my fine hair
So my hair is fine but I have a lot of it (that's what I was told). I don't believe I have dandruff but my scalp is itchy, so I scratch it often. I know there is no miracle product that can promote new hair growth but I was looking into maybe some scrub or other treatments. I'm definitely going to cut my ends since they seem to thick and heavy. I usually twist my hair before I got to sleep (when I wash my hair) so that it adds volume. Does it damage it, I do not know.

Oily scalp (day 2 greasy), dryish ends, thinning hair question
Last year about this time I moved into my sister's in between a buy & sell. I assumed that the change to her well water changed up how my hair behaved.  Well, I moved into my new home a few weeks later, and my hair problem didn't stop.  I started having really greasy looking hair (not just roots) with more hair loss than normal.  I got the greasy part just isolated to roots again on day 2, but I'm still having the thinning problem.  Over the past year I have tried going to every other day shampoos, switched up products, taken vitamins, had my thyroid checked (no issues).  I'm still dealing with a hair loss conundrum!   Shampoo & conditioner - when problems started I was a devoted Biolage user for a decade.  Now using Living Proof Perfect Hair Day.  Heat - blow dry maybe 2-3 times a week, mostly air dry.  Tools utilized: wide tooth comb pre & post shower, round brush when blow dry Treatments -    leave-in biolage spray on ends only    tried Living Proof Overnight conditioner but I wasn't impressed    Phyto botanical balancing treatment- only used once so far Vitamins - Evening Primrose Oil & Biotin    I'm at a loss.  Anyone have any thoughts?  On my lunch break I am considering buying the Phyto serum, shampoo & vitamins, but I'm curious to see others have done before I invest in this option.  Nothing seems to make my hair happy these days!

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!
