Q. Fine, Thin Hair and Scalp Help.
I'm 27 years old and I've got baby fine hair. While I'm not running into any issues as of late fine thin hair now usually translates to even finer, thinner hair down the road. I'd like to start a preventative regimen for a healthy scalp to curb the thinning of an already sparse mane. Any sug.?

Q. How to Deal with Thick and Tangled Hair
Help! No matter how long I brush or comb my hair for, there always seems to be one clump that just will not come apart. I recently got my hair thinned out at the salon due to this, and after she styled it, it seemed almost too thin, but after I washed it myself a few days later, it seemed no different from before. I've tried different shampoos and conditioners and products, but I can't seem to find anything that works for me. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Q. Curling Irons vs. Curling Wands
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!

Q. Best straightener/conditioner?
Hi! My name is Alison and I am thirteen years old. I currently have a layered haircut that falls a little past my shoulders and am looking to grow it. My hair is naturally wavy/curly, but with my haircut, it looks absolutely horrible ! I use the GHD Platinum hair straightener (love it, worth every penny), but I'm looking for a different shampoo to help straighten it more. I currently use L'oreal Straightening shampoo and conditioner, but is there another one that y'all would recommend?  Thank you so much!

Q. Drybar: 3 day Bender
Anyone own the Drybar 3 day bender?   I just bought it and can't for the life of me get it to work properly. My hair gets tangled on the bottom and it doesn't really leave my hair soft and lush.    I really really want to like this product and I probably will go to Sephora and personally ask them to show me. I want to give it a chance.   But I wanted to get some of your opinions for those who use it and if there's any tips on how to use it. There's not a lot of youtube videos about this product and the reviews are mostly good. I just need some tips on how to use this properly.

Q. Are Kerastase Products worth it?
I'm going to be switching hair products and right now I'm looking at a couple different brands, and I'm wondering if Kerastase products are worth the price? I've heard really great things about the brand and I've got pretty finicky hair, so I figured it might be a good idea. For reference I have hair that is 2 inches longer than my shoulders, pretty dry and it's dyed red. The other brand I was looking at is Redken, and ill mention the comparable products as well. So the products I'm interested in are the following:   1. Kerastase Bain Mirroir Shampoo/ (Redken real control shampoo) 2. Chroma Reflect Milk (conditioner)/ (real control conditioner) 3. Chroma Thermique (heat protectant)/ (satinwear blowdry lotion) 4. Sublimateur jour (leave in conditioner)/ (Crema care)   I'm also going to be trying the kerastase masque. but ive already decided that.   The redken is alot cheaper but I figured with such a difficult color the Kerastase might be a good idea?   Thanks for your help =]

Q. Does strawberry blonde hair look good with dark eyebrows?
I was born with dirty blonde hair, and dark brown eyebrows that look black from far away. I dyed my hair dark brown a few months ago because I didn't want to look "weird". I've gotten quite bored of brown hair, and found a really lovely strawberry blonde color, and I'm considering dying my hair that colour. I don't know if it would look weird with my eyebrows, though. I asked my friend, who also has dark eyebrows and dyed her hair platinum blonde, and she told me that it will look great as long as I keep my brows perfectly groomed. Is this true? Will strawberry blonde look good on me?

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.

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.

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
