    Well, I quit using Herbal Essences when I bought Redken (for Coloured Hair) and I quickly discovered your tip about applying to the roots, because it felt greasy (eew!). So now I've stopped doing that. It is soft, and health-ish... but really not what I'd expect from such expensive stuff! My hair is just past my shoulders and I use conditioner about the size of a quater through the ends. But it still doesn't have oomph to it!

        Oooh, I see where you're going with this! lol. I only use one other thing that my hairdresser sold to me. It's like a re-hydrator because I straighten my hair. It's by Chi (I think)

            I think that's what the CHI is suppose to do. It's called "Iron Guard" It says:
            Thermal protection spray. Protects from the hottest heat tools.


            What about something volumizing? A long time ago, I went to a hairdresser and she used a "volumizing tonic" (that's what she called it! lol) and it worked super well, but the place has since closed down. She also sold me some crappy aveda product that I COMPLETELY hated!

            I don't know why there is so much product out there!! lol, it's confusing for people like me!!

              I must have missed this thread the first time around. Thanks for the info. I have very fine, limp hair (although it tends to get relatively "big" in the humidity). Are there any certain products you recommend? Thanks! My hair is an embarressment...you'd probably gag if you saw it! And I know I need to start taking if care of it...like yesterday...so it looks good come October. IKES!

                I just saw this thread also!! I have naturally wavy hair and it gets really big in humidity. I like how it looks here in Dry Colorado but not in Mexico.. Any suggestions. Brian likes my hair straight and down, but I dont think that will happen for the wedding.

                  you just have to make sure you use a moiturizing product shampoo and conditioner and some smoothing products......it is so hard everyones hair expands in the humidity....but if you your hair is in good condtion it is better pm me if you want......

                    so your hair needs protein then moisture.....a protein shampoo (extreme )by redken...and a light condtionor because it could make your hair to flat.....(clear moiture ) by redken...but a really great trement for your hair would be CAT it is a protein treatment it repairs the cuticle of your hair and makes it stronger...you shampoo your hair and then spray it in for 5 min then rinse remeber it does not make your hair soft it is strenghting your hair so you need conditioner after... you would love light gel because it would help with body but weight down a little frizz.... let me know pm if you need too.....
