So I have very fine hair that gets really really frizzy, no matter what I do. I know hot showers aren't that great for your hair, so I usually take cool-ish showers. But still, after I get out and style my hair(etc) it gets all these little fuzzies on top! It is really dry where I live, so I thankfully don't have to worry about humidity. I am getting really frustrated with it and don't know how to help my weird hair! Any advice will be taken!! Btw...I have a medium A-line haircut.
Hi everyone, I love Philosophy's scents and recently decided to return to their line for hair. But I discovered that my favorite conditioner, Amazing Grace, seems to have been canceled after a formula change. In fact, they don't seem to carry any conditioners any more. Can anyone recommend another amazing-smelling conditioner? I love sweet foody scents, but I'm open to anything that will pair with Philosophy shampoos like Cinnamon Buns, Hot Buttered Rum, etc. My hair is fine and wavy and prone to frizz. At times I've tried the naturally curly method, but I'm not using it at the moment.
Hey guys, i have a curling iron at my house that i sometimes use, but i doesnt work that great on my hair. I was wondering if a curling wand is better or just a different method. My hair is fairly straight, a little wavy normally and its pretty longish. Thanks!
Hi I'm having this issue where in one area on my head-starting just above my temple and going basically in a line towards the back of my head- my scalp is dry. I don't think it's dandruff, it almost looks scabby or scaley, but it doesn't flake (until i pick at it...bad, i know!! but I want it gone!!). It is the same color as the rest of my scalp, it's not itchy...and when it does flake the flakes are huge!! not just little specks! I don't know what it is!! I tried putting vitamin e oil on it for a while before my shower, didn't help. I always make sure i wash the conditioner off my scalp...especially there now so I don't think it's build up either...any suggestions on what it is and how I can get it to go away? thank you so much <3
I have dark brown Asian hair and want to dye it so that it looks magenta in the sunlight. If i just use a bright temporary dye over my natural color without bleaching, will it create this effect? I do not want it to be super vibrant, just have a subtler color shine in the light.
I've been struggling with volume problems for a really long time & I need help on finding an oil that adds volume to my hair but is also a heat protectant and tames frizz. Any suggestions on products or advice to add volume to my hair?
I'm a 26 year old Caucasian transgender woman with multiple hair issues. My hair has always been oily at my scalp with dandruff/flaking but now I also have issues with hair loss/thinning (which is not typical for genetic women at my age). My hair is also pretty straight for the most part, fine and color-treated (naturally dark brunette dyed red) - I typically will not put any product in my hair after I shower and VERY rarely style it with a heating tool (blow dryer, curling or flat iron). I've used (and still use on occasion) Wen cleansing conditioner which is very gentle on my thinning hair (I don't notice much hair falling out when I cleanse with it) but I don't feel like I can go more than a day without having to cleanse my hair again due to oil build-up. I've tried multiple Carol's Daughter products because they are formulated with natural ingredients and exclude many of the harmful properties that Wen also leaves out of their products (Sulfates, Parabens, Phthalates, etc.) and am now using the Monoi Repairing Shampoo & Rosemary Mint Clarifying Conditioner. This shampoo/conditioner combo leaves my hair feeling very clean (free of oil build-up), soft and shiny but I have the problem of having about 50-75 strands of hair falling out (not breakage) each time I wash my hair every second day, aside from when my hair just naturally falls out on a day-to-day basis (maybe 20-30 stands that I notice). Does anyone with similar hair issues have a shampoo/conditioner combo that works well for them that they would recommend trying? Price isn't an issue as long as I find something that's effective. Thanks! After reading some helpful responses to my issue/question, I thought I should add this to my post: I mentioned my being transgender as an indicator as to why I'm dealing with hair loss (as a genetic male). It's definitely just a natural testosterone interaction problem for me. Part of my hormone replacement therapy (prescribed by an Endocrinologist) includes antiandrogen drugs to combat my hair loss issues. However, I have noticed using different products such as Wen vs. Carol's Daughter Monoi Repairing Shampoo, for example, I have more fallout with one than I do with the other. So, I was hoping to find a shampoo/conditioner that wouldn't give me as much fallout as I'm getting now. I included pictures so anyone reading would have a better idea of what my hair looks like. The photo was taken last week so it's very up-to-date as far as its [my hair's] current state.
Can dry shampoo be used on African-American hair? I'm interested in trying a dry shampoo out but I'm not sure that they are formulated for my hair type. I have thick, coarse hair that is chemically relaxed and I don't wash it everyday. Any suggestions?
I have short hair. I cut it this summer into a boy cut, and now I want it longer. My hair is a little lower than my chin, but it's shorter in back, and I have side bangs. Anyways, what products can I use to get it to grow faster? Thanks.
Hi! Okay, I am in desperate need of hair advice. I had to cut off my hair to my shoulders about two months ago because it wasn't too healthy, and it's only grown maybe an inch since then (I can never seem to get long hair) and my hair is always oily after one day. I have to wash it every time I want to wear it down. So basically I wear it down one day, up the next (so that I don't strip the natural oils by washing it every single day). My issue is that I not only need longer hair, but I need THICK hair. My hair's thin, and fine. And it's driving me nuts. I'm going into cosmetology school in two weeks, and I can do so many different hairstyles on my SISTER, but not on myself because my hair is too thin (or short). Basically I'm looking for either vitamins I can take, or products I can use. Ones that REALLY work because I'm on a tight tight budget. Thank you!
My "It's a Ten" is almost gone and I want to try something new. My hair is very long, very thick, a little course and poufy. I prefer spray because I like the convenience and don't like heavy creams applied with my hands. I shampoo/condition every other day and most days in the winter I blow dry it completely and then use a flat iron. I'm looking for an all-in-one type product. My main issues would probably be dryness/dullness, something to protect from heat, and also TANGLES! My hair is getting so long and the last few months the tangles are outrageous! I've never had such bad ones before. Any suggestions on a good leave-in-spray to make my hair look all pretty and not so tangled? Thanks everyone!
I have a CHI straightener and was recently informed that the ELLA straightener was better. I have thick coarse wavy hair and use my straightener daily. What type of straightener would be best, I know there are numerous brands out there!
I have very thick, coarse, curly hair and like to straighten it occassionally. However, due to how course and dense it is, straightening it takes a considerable amount of time and I am looking for ways to extend my style before washing because my hair tends to get oily after a day. I have never tried any of the dry shampoos and want to know if they remove the oil well. Also, if anyone has any suggestions on brands they like, that would be much appreciated!
My hair gets very oily over night so I have to wash it everyday, which I know isn't good. I've tried washing it the night before and then trying to style it the next day but that just doesn't work. I'm looking for a dry shampoo to use and I'd like to the Oscar Blandi one. Does it get rid of oily hair and actually make it look clean? I'm scared to use any dry shampoo just because I don't want my hair to look oily and gross. Does anyone have any other/better recommendations??
I have extremely thick hair, and it is only getting thicker. Every morning, I wake up with huge chunks of matted hair that are painful to remove. I can't find a conditioner that really does the trick of helping to detangle. Any suggestions?
I have super thin straight hair that seems to always be frizzy, towards the ends mostly. I have tried hundreds of finishing sprays to tame the frizz and add shine, but my hair gets crazy greasy so easily (I have to wash it every day). I can't seem to find a perfect product to finish my hair and I'm desperate, any suggestions ?
Hi, i have an hair with brazilian blowout but i don't like the straight hair anymore. I'm looking for a hair with texture, beachy hair, not so straight anymore. Straight with texture. Which would be better: Surf Hair Bumble and Bumble or BB Texture Bumble and Bumble? Does this really work, even with a brazilian blowout hair? * sorry for the english mistakes, i'm still studying english.
Hi guys! So I normally have poofy, wavy/curly hair. I usually put it up or something, but occasionally I straighten it. However, all of the products I've tried seem to not really affect its softness, shininess, and healthiness of my hair. The ends get dried out easily, no matter how much I try to prevent it (even without straightening my hair) and get very straw-like, even before the ends start splitting. Even the top, which is soft, is not as soft as so many girls I see out there. I look at pictures of girls with really shiny, beautiful, healthy, SOFT, glossy hair, and have no idea how to achieve this. I'm also on a budget. I know that higher priced products usually result in higher quality products, but ideally, I'm looking for something that can help make my hair look healthy and glossy. I'm talking conditioners, pre straightening treatments, whatever. (Although it should be noted that when I DO straighten my hair, I always let it completely air dry first, I don't know if this can affect any products recommended.) I have dandruff, so my current routine is Head & Shoulders, and a shea butter conditioner, with some drugstore brand spray, and handfuls of pre-straightening heat protectant products. Hopefully this isn't too vague. I appreciate any help.
