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!

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??

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)

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!

I'm looking for a hair gel that can give me slicked back boyish hair, kind of how you see during fashion week. It cannot flake. I don't care about the cost, or if its meant for men.   I've tried to google, but haven't found what I am looking for   Please help!   Thanks!

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)

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).

Hello ladies,   I really need an advice on how to stop my curly hair from falling off. I have tried everything to stop my hair from falling off, from using products to following a good diet and a stress free lifestyle...but nothing has worked.    If anyone knows of a product/ treatment that will help short my curly hair from falling off and actually gaining volume, please let me know! Help please!    Thanks Ladies Spoiler (Highlight to read)       sincerely, Ana

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.

I have been using Wen for about three years and have always atuck by the brand. I use the cleansing conditioner in all the verities and the re-moist and his styling cream and volumizing spray. 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

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?
Hair
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.

Please Help. My hair is fine wavy/curly but flat on top. I cant seem to get any lift without it frizzing. Can  anyone suggest anything. Oh my hair is below my shoulders. And help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi there,    I seem to have the chronic problem of having relatively dry wavy hair but without the payoff of voluminous roots - instead, my roots are always greasy on day 2 and I rely on dry shampoo without fail!    It just seems that this shouldn't be the case given that my hair is pretty dry.    Any tips, ladies?    xo Grace 
Hair
Any one know how to get a perfect shine for thick dry hair that does not make you hair look oily or ruin the hair style by making hair straight?    Also, any advice for freeze puffy hair?

UPDATE: I bought a new flat iron and my hair stays straight all day now!! I was at Brandsmart and thought I'd look in the hair section. I looked at all the options available and picked the most expensive one pretty much (still only around $49.00). I bought the 1  1/2 inch tourmaline ceramic Infiniti Pro by Conair, Apparently it's new so I'll list some of it's other features so you can find the exact one I'm speaking of: "24 hour hold"  "70% less frizz"  "true ceramic heater". As I stated earlier, my hair held it's shape all day and even through the next day, it was also very shiny and soft. I noticed it took me about half as long to straighten my hair than it usually does so that was a nice surprise!    __________________________________________________ _________________________________________ I have wavy/curly hair and live in humid Miami.    Maybe I don't use the right hair products, maybe it's the humidity, maybe it's my flat iron - but for the life of me I can't keep my hair straight when I flat iron it!   I straighten my bangs (growing them out and they're long enough to be separated down the middle and kept on both sides of my face) every morning while getting ready before work, but by the time I get to work (altogether 20 minutes after  straitening  them) they are no longer straight and suddenly looking pretty much how they did before I straightened them!   As you can imagine this is very frustrating and a little bit confusing lol. Below I will list the products I use on my hair so you can get an idea of what I'm using on my hair and what might be better options. Maybe you've had this same problem and found a fix to keep your hair straight for a longer time.      Products I use: BaByliss PRO Ceramix XTreme flat iron Garnier Fructis Style sleek & shine flat iron perfecter straightening mist with argan oil for a 48 hour straight finish <-- yea, right I wish      Thanks in advance!  PL20

Does it hurt? I get my eye brows waxed occasionally but waxing your neck sounds really - REALLY - painful.   I have a lot of hairs on my neck and chin, and they're long, not like peach fuzz unfortunately (I could deal with that) and I think my only option is waxing. Does the hair grow back lighter after the first waxing or do you need several sessions for it to start growing slower? I don't know why I have facial hair like that, but if it's hormonal will waxing even work? Or will the hair grow back within a week?   Thank you!

My hair is down to my collarbone. I want to grow it longer, ideally down to my shoulder blades. However, when my hair gets to where it is now I have problems. My hair gets easily tangled and it's sometimes hard to run a brush through. I also will get some split ends and a bit of breakage even if I don't heat style my hair much. When all this happens, I tend to throw my hands up, go to my stylist, and have her cut off a few inches to make my hair healthy again. I currently use a keratin conditioner and, two or three times a week, use a sulfate-free shampoo for colored hair. I use a serum after I straighten my hair.    What else can I do or use to get my hair growing healthy? My hair is fine, naturally wavy, and I color it at home ("stop coloring" is not an option for me). 
Hair
I bought this product before I decided to dye my black hair ombre and now I'm reading all the labels to my hair products. Sephora and Living Proof's websites say this product is safe for color-treated hair, but I saw this ingredient:   C10-40 Isoalkylamidopropylethyldimonium Ethosulfate   First of all, what a word. Secondly, doesn't Ethosulfate sound like a sulfate? HELP! I've been using this product and I don't want to mess up my hair!

I'm curious to start trying nicer hair products, but I'm not sure where to splurge. I've heard great things about Living Proof and Bumble and Bumble. What are your favorites?

  I have really bad eyebrows and I want to fix them! My eyebrows are really crooked and I was wondering if any of you guys have advice like should I tweez them to try to fix it or should i fill them in to make it match. I was also wondering if there is anything I can put on my eyebrows to make them grow faster.

My GHD flat iron just burnt out yesterday   I've had it for ~4 years with minimal usage, but somehow didn't last.   I'm searching for a new iron and I need and would appreciate your help!    I'm looking for a good quality iron that will last and leave minimal damage to my hair.. GHD used to give me a smooth effortless results that didn't feel like it was "pressing" on to the hair, but glides so maybe something similar with a temperature control    I've read a few reviews on T3 and CHI, but they both have mixed reviews
