My hair is course, thin, and dry with blonde highlights. It tends to have frizz and a little wave too, and my roots get oily. I tried a sample of Ojon oil and it was terrible...the smell was overwhelmingly awful (maybe the product had gone bad?? really it was that horrible) and it made my hair stringy until I washed it a few times in a row. Any suggestions for better hair treatments?
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 have never in my life used a curling tool, but recently purchased a tapered curling wand and have been staring at it for days, afraid to use it because I have no idea how to get started. i have naturally wavy/curly hair that has a very inconsistent curl pattern, so if I let it just air dry totally naturally (no product or styling), it's a poofy, crazy mess. Normally I either straighten it with straightening balm, a blow dryer and flat iron, or use a little curl defining cream and twist 1 inch sections into tight spirals, which air dry into loose spiral waves that stay until the next time I wash. I'm hoping to use the tapered wand to get larger, more defined spiral curls, and have watched several tutorials on how to maneuver the wand, but I literally don't know how to start. My questions: 1. Do I blow dry straight first, and then curl? That seems counterproductive, but if so, do I put any product in it before blow drying? Or 2. Do I let it air dry natural, and then curl? If so, do I put any product in it while it dries? Or 3. Do I "style" it curly like I would normally do (curl defining cream, twist sections, air dry), and then use the wand to curl the loose spiral waves into larger, more defined curls? Thanks in advance for any advice y'all have!
I have natural curly thick hair, live in Hawaii with high humidity. Most anti-friz products just pump up my hair even more. What products can be used to contain the friz but still look natural, other than flat iron which breaks my hair?
So I have decided to got natural and I am TERRIFIED of the big cut because I have a huge head that looks odd with a short cut. Any advice to keep my relaxed hair from breaking off of my new natural roots while I wait for the grow out? Thanks so much for the feed back! I appreciate it. I'm looking into protective styles and hair products that will keep my hair in great condition.
I've had my GHD for about five years now - no crackling, no drops, no cord issues, no fuse problems; I am thrilled that my darling iron has lasted this long! But I've noticed my hair just doesn't seem to look as "pretty" after ironing as it did when I first started using it - now its still a bit poofy and not as sleek and shiny. I thought maybe there was product build-up, so I've cleansed the plates - no change. The plates still seem to get awful hot. It's not my shampoo/conditioner/styling products and tools, as I use quality brands. Maybe the ceramic has worn down? Maybe it doesn't get as hot as I think it does. Maybe my color-treated hair is just trying to tell me that its poor strands are fried! I bought a new GHD back in November during VIBTOPIA, but I haven't been able to bring myself to open the box due to not knowing if it's the iron or my hair. If it's not the iron, that's money that could go towards more makeup! On the other hand, after almost daily use for five years, should I really expect my iron to behave brand-new? How do I determine where to draw the replacement line??
I see that Sephora does not currently sell the pins I am looking for. I went to a nice salon and had my hair done in an updo a long time ago. They didn't use bobby pins. They used pins instead. I found some pins at a store but they are too wide. They were the Sta-Rite 100-1 3/4" & 2" black tipped hair pins. I want something close to a bobby pin but not so closed between the two pieces of metal. Any ideas where to find the product in this picture?
A long time ago in place called Tony & Guy in Scottsdale, Arizona (now called Brillare) I had my hair done. This chick said if she can use this product to make my roots feel "clean," I said sure. She put it on my hair I believe after my wash and before blow-dry. I swear it was a WOW feeling, it was incredible!!! Now I would like to find this product and use it because I loved the feeling of a "clean root." I forgot what it looks like and called. If any of you use, or know of a product that does that. That would help a bunch!! Thank you!!
I have a problem...There is alot of hair strands in my neck that I personally don't like. I want to grow my hair, longer…Cutting is not an option right now. My goal is to grow it longer to the middle of my chest; it is lil longer than where my collarbone is. In my past I used to cut it short in the summer, since I lived in a warmer state and grow it out in the winter to keep my neck warm, never had a problem...Until 3 years ago...A year ago I made a mistake, It was bothering me soooo much that I end up pulling alot out that made me somewhat bald a couple inches above the neck. So bad that when I went to get my hair done, hair stylists would say what have you done? I do not want that mistake again, very humiliating. So I was wondering if there is some kind of hair gel, or some kind of product to keep them out of my way. Something that is maximum hold and can hold for a really long time...Say like 5-8 hours, or possibly the whole day. Hair clips aren't working...The strands keep falling out, so much that it's driving me crazy! If you can help me, that would really help. Thanks!
So I'm trying to grow my hair out so that when I curl it it will be at my waist line. I would say I need it to grow about 8 inches give or take but the problem is it's already getting damaged. I already don't dye my hair, the only heat it gets is I blow dry my bangs on medium heat and curl my hair on low. However, my hair is naturally thin so I guess it breaks a little easier and I try to only take off about an inch of split ends every 3 months so it will keep growing longer. I need ideas for how to get my hair to grow fast and how to fight off the damage. If we can get that down I also love my hair to be super soft. Any ideas?
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?
Hello there! I'm currently looking for different methods of hair removal (for my legs and underarms), whether it be a super cheap natural method or a machine. I really don't want to fork out money to get laser hair removal just yet, I just want something that really works for the time being. I've heard of the no! no! remover, pumice stone removal, and tria (which is for darker hair and lighter skin, which I have light skin and REALLY light hair). I also, have thought about waxing, but I'm slightly nervous about the pain factor and the idea. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
On the mornings that i spiral curl my hair in the morning with my chi, it looks great as soon as im finished but within 30 min, its completely flat. I dont know what I'm doing wrong or how to make it stay curled throughout the whole day. Ideas anyone?
I've been wanting to dye my hair for a really long time and I'm not having a lot of luck. True, I have REALLY super dark hair (almost black) but I don't want to go through all the trouble of bleaching it. Is there any way I can do this inexpensively without having to do such? Products or techniques would be great. xoxo
I hate watching QVC, even if I just flicking through the channels I'll get caught up in it. I've seen the Wen hair care a few times, has anyone tried it? It sounds great, but pricey and may not work with my oily and dry hair. I also hear the edit reviews and remove bad ones, yikes. Thanks.
About 2 months ago I purchased Clean and Clear shampoo and conditione And had to stop using it. My scalp got super itchy. My hair started coming out more than normal. Started feeling like hay. Overall a nightmare for me. I am 34. My hair before this was great. I have always had thin and straight as a board hair. The itching has gotten alittle better. But my hair is still thin. Hay or straw like. And dull. Any advice on my problem will be great I do take biotin daily.
I have color-treated hair that is pretty wavy/curly. I straighten it all the time, but in this summer heat here in Virginia it gets so humid and hot that it gets frizzy and wet and it's such a waste of time to streighten it and also not very healthy. I used to use a drug store gel and moouse (The herbal essence brand and the aussie brand) but I was recently told that those could strip the color, especially reds. I was recommended to try several beach sprays, but my hair still poofs up and gets unruly and frizzy. I need a good gel that keeps my hair in place and keeps it looking nice and curly and then when it dries it still looks nice instead of a hot mess of a frizz ball with disgusting waves. Help!! (I don't really mind the crunchy-ness either, but obviously I don't want anything to stiff. I want it to dry and look nice and natural but still polished and in place!! ) Thanks!
Hi dolls, I recently started wearing my side-swept bangs straight across, and I really like how it changes up my style. The only problem is, after wearing my bangs to the side so often, it's very difficult to make the part go away when I wear them straight across without breaking out the flat iron, which feels like overkill. Are their any good, light (I have very oily hair) styling products that could solve my problem? Thanks so much in advance!
Hello all! My hair is super thick, and somewhat coarse. Some conditioners tend to be too heavy and leave a really gross film on my hair. Yuck - and on top of that, they don't really soften it, either! I'm definitely trying to avoid that, moving forward. I find that if I use anything other than an oil on my hair to keep it from drying out, it causes a lot of build up. With it being summer and all, my hair gets a lot drier than usual. The last time I was in a store, I got a sample of Alterna's conditioner (caviar, I think - it was in a dark purple bottle) and that seemed to work great! I wanted to know if anyone could recommend another conditioner (or maybe a shampoo as well!) that they think might help.
My hair used to always be frizzy, thick, and curly/wavy growing up. For some reason when I moved out to the Midwest two years ago, my hair has become very straight and fine. I can tell part of it is due to the fact that use heat tools daily (straightening iron and/or curling iron) and wash + dry my hair every other day. It stays pretty flat, dull, and uncooperative most days. I have been trying the Living Proof Restore Shampoo + Conditioner and Moroccan Oil on my hair when I watch it, but it only really makes it softer. I would like to grow my hair back out and have healthier looking hair. Any techniques or ideas on how to make my hair healthy again?
