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

Q. How do I keep my hair from tangling?
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. I just have to barely move my head and my hair is tangled up. Is there any products I can try to prevent the tangling? I can't stand having my hair cut short and its super annoying. Thanks.

I keep catching sniffs of my hair after using the Drybar Texas Tea volumizing shampoo/conditioner this morning and I LOVE IT! I need a more moisturizing conditioner, though (I have thick, dry, wavy hair & live in humid southeast TX).   Anyone know of a 'heavier' (better?) conditioner that smells similar?

Q. Is there a hairspray/spray that you don't have to wash out??
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??

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. 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. 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. 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.

Q. Curling wand noob needs advice on the basics please?
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!

Q. When is it time to replace a flat-iron?
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??

Q. Wanting to get my strands off the back of my neck without cutting it
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!

Q. I need my hair long and strong(and super soft) help!
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?
