taking care of your hair

Recommended Posts

Glad to see this thread come back to life!

 

I love the Redken line and ESPECIALLY the anti-snap.

 

Trying to get my hair to grow, grow, grow. I've got til April. I take care of it, use good products and get the ends trimmed (my HD is also a Redken specialist ... love her) ... but I need new tips/tricks for hair growth/thickening.

any advice would be appreciated :)
probably only a 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch every 5-6 weeks you could go up to 8 if you are growing it out just use really good products so the hair can stay strong and moisturized... sorry your hd cut to much off it will grow i promise our hair only grows between 1/4 inch to 1/2 normally every 4 weeks so be patient.... hope this helps........

Yay, I love this thread!!

 

Erica, I got my hair trimmed about 4 weeks ago and the ends are already drying out. sad.gif My HD told me I could come back in 8 weeks since I'm trying to grow it out, but I can't believe how bad the ends are getting already. Is there something I can do to keep the ends healthier?

 

Also, my hair doesn't really have that really healthy, soft feeling/look, is there something more I can be doing? It's definately healthier since I started using Redken, which i'm in love with, but it's still a bit blah. I live in a pretty dry area - there's not a ton of humidity, whether it's winter or summer, so I'm sure that's adding to it - but I'm just ready to have NICE hair!!

THANKS CESSY! I will take your advice and prob wait until 8 weeks to get another trim. Also i usually use Biolage shampoo and conditioner and now that it's almost gone I'm due for a new brand I think. I wasn't over all impressed with Biolage. I'm thinking Aveda? Is redken better than Aveda? Also which type would you recomend for thin but lots of it curly/ wavy hair?

Hey Miss Cessy! What is the best shampoo and conditioner for not so natural blondes..blush2.gif I get foils every 2 months but my color always seems to fade. I love the way it looks right after my coloring, but can't seem to maintain it well. I use the violet shampoos every once in a while, but let me tell you.....after accidentally leaving it on too long a few times...purple hair is definately a good color for me! smile43.gif

 

Is there a good brand that I can pretty much find anywhere? Any drugstore brands that are decent? I use that John Freida sheer blonde conditioner alot since I seem to go through my conditioner twice as fast as my shampoo.......Thanks lady!

Hey Erica,

 

I need more help!! My hair is SO dry. I use a Chi "Iron Guard", which my hd says hydrates my hair, but omg - my hair is so dry and has so much static! How can I get rid of that? My hair totally lacks body too (sad.gif), so can I get rid of static and add a little life?

I'm so not a professional, but have you tried silk therapy by biosilk? It's a leave in serum that works wonders for me!!!

redken has a blonge shampoo called blonde glam or color extend shampoo...blonde is hard because the light blends in ... keep it hydrated and strong and the cuticle will lay smooth then it stays shiny......anti snap is great for making it srong it is a leave in works wonderful....hope this helps...

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
