Q. What do you recommend for combination hair?
Hello everyone!    I'm still new to this store and all that comes with it, but I have experienced a lot of different things for my hair problem. I have really oily hair and yet  I also have dandruff like no tomorrow. I would like to see if I can't find something to help control both of these problems. I have tried a lot of different things in the past to help with the problems, but any long term use of items soon becomes ineffective.    What would be recommended to use?

Q. Thick, colored, oily hair
So I am naturally blonde but have been coloring my hair for two years a mahogany brunette.    I know that washing your hair everyday is bad for it, however my hair looks so greasy the next day if I don't.    My hair itself is very thick, medium length and is very healthy. I have asked my stylist for advice but she told me I should just keep doing what I'm doing.

Q. Perfumed Hair Mist?
This is my first time posting a question, I apologize in advance if I put it in the wrong section or someone has talked about this before (I couldn't find anything) please forgive me  I just wondered what everyone's thoughts are on hair perfumes… have you used them? Do they damage your hair or make it dry or oily? Do they make your hair feel like kinda dirty or weighed down? Are they the same scent as the perfume line? Would they work on skin as well? I would very much appreciate any advice or experiences… thanks so much and have a lovely day

Hello, I have extremely thick hair. Its not oily and its not super dry either. But everyday, even right after brushing, the back section tangles up extremely bad.

Q. Curling Iron for Shoulder Length Hair?
Hi Everyone,    I've decided to invest in a quality curling iron, and I've narrowed it down to the Drybar 3-DayBender Curling Iron. I have medium thickness, shoulder-length hair, and I need ceramic tools to actually get it to hold it's shape. The problem is, I don't know whether I should get the 1" or the 1.25" iron.    I also plan to grow my hair out, but I'm curious which one would be preferred with my hair the length it is now? Which one offers more versatility in styling (curl shape, changes when used with products, etc)?   Thanks in advance for the help! <3

Q. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day--Is it Really Sulfate-Free?
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!

Q. Lip Waxing...what about the grow back
So I am considering doing the upper lip wax... at the Benefit brow bar place.  I'm naturally blonde so I have that peach fuzz all over my face, which isn't really noticeable but still slightly annoying in the upper lip area when I want to wear concealer there so I just avoid it.     Anyways, I am worried if I wax there it will grow back thicker and more wiry.  I've read this is a myth but about a year ago I was picking at spot on my chin where I had peach fuzz and tore some hairs out and now every so often I get a thicker darker hair growing in there that just seems to pop up overnight like some ninja beard.   So I'm worried the same will happen with upper lip.   Anyone have this experience?

Q. How to curl my already curly hair!
LOL so this question is a bit wierd, however I'm really curious as to how I can achieve perfect curls! I already have wavy/curly hair and use quite a number of products to tame the frizzyness!! (Living Proof Wave Making Cream, Alterna Kendi Oil treatment, Paul mitchell Shine spray) But no matter what I use, I still end up with lazy curls at the end of the day and my hair never looks smooth..it always looks very dull. I do own the Sultra Bombshell and was wondering if you ladies had any great tips on how to curl it the right way. The last time I tried, I ended up taking away my natural curl and the iron sort of left a wierd wave that did not look cute. Also, I never know what to do with the ends! should I leave them out, or go back and striaghten it with my iron?  I have tried many videos on youtube but it seems like most of the ones I had seen, the girls had blow-dryed their hair and then curled it which left the ends looking great! But this would not work for me as I do not like too much heat for my hair. thanks in advance!

Q. Holding a Curl from a Round Brush
Hi All,   Within the past 6 months or so, I have noticed that when I round brush my hair, it doesn't hold the curl as well as it used to. I use a 2 inch round brush and have long hair, but I want bouncy curls like I used to get from round brushing.    I'm not sure if maybe since my hair has gotten longer, it's too heavy to hold a curl from a round brush? I use a blow-dry spray, but if anyone else could recommend a product or a technique for getting my hair to hold a curl from a round brush blowout, I'd really appreciate it!

Q. Tips for dead straight hair?

I tried to tease my hair, hairspray, blow dry, perm and all sorts of crazy things in the past to put some volume in my hair and they never worked out.

Q. How to get natural volume?
So my everyday hair routine is to straighten my sorta loose wavy hair and spray dry shampoo that has volume in it. Unfortuantly the volume doesn't last long, but im getting tired of using up all my sprays and buying new ones. I want to get natural volume. My mom who is 52 always dyes, blowdries, and ties her hair. She has a lot of split ends but she still has a lot of natural volume. She doesn't do anything to try to get volume. I don't think damaging my hair will help. Do any of you know how to get natural volume? I stopped teasing since it takes too much time having to brush out the tangle, plus it damages my hair a lot btw. Thanks, atexnoemi.
