Looking for something to freshen up my hair after hard workouts so I don't have to wash my hair everyday (I usually wash it every 2-3 days but workout more frequently that that). I use dry shampoo but I still think my hair smells and looks greasy. Wasn't sure what my options are as far as a no-poo or some other method. I'm not opposed to getting it wet and restyling it, I just was to keep shampoos and cleansers to a minimum. My hair is long and thick with no artificial coloring. Some natural curls but the weight/length of my hair keeps it just wavy. Any recommendations would be appreciated!
I live in Florida with almost constant humidity. My hair is a tight curl frizzy mess around my face and then different types of curls and waves throughout the rest of my head. The textures also range from thick and coarse to smooth and medium thickness. My blonde hairs are pretty fine, and vary with their wavy/curliness. I have never dyed or bleached my hair.
Does anyone have any advice, or know enough to compare different types of flat irons? I'm wondering if all of the tourmaline/ceramic irons with adjustable heat settings are created equal. After about 8 years of faithful service, my trusted Chi straightener appears to be on the fritz. I did a little research on flat irons, thinking that I was going to get a T3 (I bought the T3 Whirl Trio curling wand recently and it is amazing). After consideration, I ended up buying the Rusk Heat Freak Str8 iron, thinking it's also tourmaline/ceramic, and it should work the same. Plus, my sister got it for Christmas and loves it. After using it for the first time this morning, I'm underwhelmed. It took me a long time and a lot of passes to get my hair straight. I don't have that kind of time in the mornings (my makeup application suffered greatly at the expense of my hair, haha). I'm just a little afraid to spend the money on the T3 if it is going to basically be the same as the Rusk.
I'm considering buying my first proper styling product as I want to curl my hair more often without damaging it. I was considering Drybar's Southern Belle Mousse, does anyone have experience with using it on fine hair? It's sort of pricey (for a beginner) at 25 dollars, and I'm wondering if I'd be better off going for a cheaper grocery-store brand until I have more styling experience... Thoughts? PS I've heard drybar products has a strong musk scent, that tends to linger in the hair. Is that true?
Looking to get a new hair dryer. The one I currently have is a decent one. I think I got it like 5 years ago at a salon for $65 or something. My main concern with mine now is drying time. Along with it being heavy and has no attachments (or maybe I just lost them). I would really like it to have different heat settings, a cooling button I don't have to hold onto, just turn on. And a long cord. Non damaging too! Let me know if any of you have a hair dryer that you just love. Thanks
Any know any products or home remedies on how to grow my hair out faster and heather. I currently use biotin and heard about fish oil. But I want to know more options to know which is best. Also I need advice for frizzy hair.
I just started using Wen and have mixed feelings...My hair is definitely softer, but kind of heavy. Not sure how to explain. While I give it some time before deciding if I love or hate it, I'm wondering what's the actual cleaning agent in the product... There's alcohol in the formulation - is that it? Or the cleansing part is done just by the water? Any thoughts?
I've searched through the BT threads and saw a few recommendations for this system, but no actual results or review of the system. I'm trying to address some hair concerns and have a few sample packs to try which I'm hoping will last 30 days. Does anyone have experience using this system? How did you like it? What results did you see and did it meet your expectations? Any information is appreciated. Thanks!
I need some help, I have always had black hair. And I always color it black too at home with Wal-Mart brands (L'Oreal etc usually whats on sale). I have never had any other color except black as my hair color. I was recently doing some research and came across a hair color I got interested in, which is this Dark Cherry Black. I was wondering what colors and brand to use to get that color? I still want my hair color to originally look black, but with like some dark cherry black where you can see in the sunlight. So I don't want to go full-on just Dark Cherry Black lol if that makes sense. I definitely am not going to spend so much $$ to get it done at a salon. It has to be reasonably priced like Walmart type brands. I live in Canada so typically I get it from Walmart. I also read online that people use Developers, but I have no idea what those are for and if I should look into that as well for a dark cherry black. Any suggestions? Please help! If your a hairstylist, that would help even more!
I recently lost both of the little plastic applicators that come with the Phytocyane Revitalizing Serum and I need to find somehow to still be able to use the product. Unfortunaly I can't use it with out the little plastic pieces because you have to break the glass tip off the vial to use. The applicators that came with the vials kind of scratched my head so if anyone has any suggestions on what to use I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance
Hey guys! I'm wondering if any of you have tried laser hair removal at home using any of the devices and how successful it's been for you. I personally have dealt with hair EVERYWHERE and since a very young age. It sort of sucks when your name rhymes with hairy ("Hairy Sherry") because it made elementary school very traumatizing. So I never believed that there could be an affordable option to reducing my hair. I researched quite a bit into home systems and finally purchased the me smooth about three months ago. I'm not kidding when the results amaze me; I've been brought close to tears at how much of a difference it's made in my daily life. Prior to that, I'd tried everything (shaving, waxing, tweezing, epilating). The only thing is I have yet to try it on my face (not only do I have large pores but I have very small hairs from most of the pores all over my face). Have any of you had experience with using any of the devices on the face? Any tips? Thanks for reading!
I came across a can of Nick Chavez Amazon Hair, which is a spray gel - I loved it! There was no strong scent or sticky build up, but I think it's going to be hard to find so what other prods can you recommend? My hair is straight & fine. TYIA
I'm seriously considering switching to all silicone free hair products and wanted to see if anyone here has gone through the whole silicone detox and completely eliminated silicones from their products? What were the results? What were the speed bumps? What are your fav sulfate, para ben and silicone free hair products? Any tips would be helpful!
My hair is SUPER thin. I will shower in the morning and in about 6 hours it will become oily and lose all volume. Dry shampoo seems to do nothing for the oil control. I use Organix Biotin and Collagen volume shampoo and conditioner for the volume but it doesn't seem to have a big effect. What should I be using to help fix the oil and volume problems?
Anyone know any good shampoos that repair damaged hair. I tried the Ojon Shampoo damages reverse an it was amazing but the price is it bit high. Any of you know a cheaper ones that are similar or a better one?
hi I dyed my hair pink I don't know what I was thinking. It's patchy and does not look good. Should I crop it all off into a pixie so it grows back nicely or try to dye it a different color. I'm embarrassed to go out in public
Hello, I have always had fine, thin, straight hair however after my son was born my hair became very think and curly. An obvious result of prenatal vitamins and pregnancy hormones. Since I stopped the prenatal vitamins I have noticed a big difference in my hair. It's getting thinner again, and now more brittle. Not that it matters but could - we moved east from Ca a year and a half ago. Going from dry to very humid I noticed a lot of change with my hair. Add in new stylist, the weather, different vitamins and heat/air conditioning all year round my hair is worked! Currently I wash with a sulfur free shampoo, use Unite 7 seconds to help with tangles post shower. I used to use DermOrganics oil on my ends but ran out - I didn't like how quickly it would dry my hair. I tried Angel nourishing cream but that seemed like it did the opposite, made it more dry on the ends and frizzy. One of the first ingredients - alcohol. My roots get oily within a day or so - I'm washing every 2 days. My hair dryer is old and could be the issue. Either way, I feel as though I may have to cut off inches in order to get my hair back to a healthy state unless there is a product that can help rebuild the hair from the bottom up. Is there anything I can add to my regimen that will help with strengthen the hair shaft? Thanks in advance for any advice or recommendations.
I'm really incredibly lazy when it comes to my hair. I have very long fine hair with lots of chunky layers. It takes me 2 minutes to dry and 2 or 3 minutes to straighten and I'm done. I love that!! However I would like to be able to style it with a bit more bounce and body. Not curls or waves. My stylist does it with HUGE Velcro rollers but I have zero interest in doing that. I was wondering if there was some kind of styling tool I can use instead of my straightening iron that can give me body? Here re is a picture of my hair for reference just after my stylist used those Velcro rollers - I'd like to recreate this without rollers.
Hello beauties! I need your help with something... Does anybody know where could I get a wig like this one? Hairdo AND the color, too ( especially the color! )? Exactly the same if possible ( or minus bangs ). I absolutely don't know anything about wigs, so any possible help, recommendations and suggestions are very welcome, and much appreciated. Happy Holidays, everyone! Edit: I used to color my hair to similar color, but the maintenance was a huge pain in the behind! So, no matter how badly I wanna do it again... I'd just rather give wig a chance first... It's not the same, but considering I don't want to dye my hair again just yet ( enjoying my natural blond hair for the time being ), a wig wouldn't be a bad idea for those occasions when I feel like enjoying this color again sometimes. And enjoying this do without cutting my hair... for now...
Hey ladies, I'm looking to buy a new flat iron/straightener. My hair is thick, wavy, and frizzy. I straighten my hair every day (I use a heat protector, no worries!) and I've previously only used a Chi, but all the ones I've had have broken or don't help me get the silky straightness I get when I go to the salon. Suggestions? Thanks!
I want to try using an oil on my damaged hair but am not sure which one to try first. I just used Moroccan Oil but overall was disappointed. It did make my hair really shiny and improved on softness, but took away a lot of the natural wave my hair has and only helped a minimal amount with frizz. I'm looking for an oil that will really cut frizz, enhance wave, and soften. Thanks in advance!
im kind of torn between which one to get..I have a GHD flat iron that i've had for 7 or 8 years.. the quality and durability is fantastic. but I hear Dry Bar is really good as well.. which would you recommend?
