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.

Q. ORGANIX products?
Hi there, has anyone out there used organix shampoos and conditioners and or products? I noticed that they usually win some magazine awards and they are all natural, no sulfates and honestly really affrodable. I was thinking of trying them.... anyone had any luck? Also, their website isnt that great, so not sure which shampoo to use ... I have color-treated hair, fine and damaged hair (although I would love some volume).   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??

Which Drybar shampoo would be a good everyday shampoo? I bought the 'Happy Hour Blowout Shampoo' and it feels great in my hair (with conditioner of course). I want to order the value size from Sephora but i've heard that this shampoo should only be used once to twice a week....has anyone tried the other drybar shampoos for daily purposes?   Thanks!!

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. 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. Solutions for thick, dry, frizzy hair
The title basically says it all. I have really long, thick, wavy hair--and I'd consider myself very lucky if it weren't for all the frizz! I suspect it's because my hair is dry. =/ Any suggestions? I'd prefer something that can be applied to dry hair to sort of "tame" it, but at this point I'm pretty much open to anything that works--conditioners, shampoos, relaxing balms, oils, anything!   Extra love if it smells amazing.   Thanks for the help. =)

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!
