    Re: I need hair help!



    This is going to sound very strange, but go with me on this for a moment. The stuff you want is called Mane 'n Tail, made by Straight Arrow. They make shampoo and conditioner. It's about $8/bottle, but the bottles are huge so it'll last you a while. You should use both, but if you can only get one I'd go for the conditioner. (Be sure and use it as a rinse though, not a leave-in.)

    Hair should be clean and damp; squirt a quarter-sized amount into one palm, and 'whip it' between both palms for a good 30 seconds (like you are rolling a little wad of dough into a ball quickly between 'praying hands'); The conditioner will start to become 'frothy' like a whipped cream - between the heat and the friction of your rapidly moving hands - and you will get the faint smell of oranges. Now, 'scrunch' this into your hair, and allow to air dry (you can blow it dry later; just let it air dry, then re-dampen it slightly and blow it dry). This conditioner has human hair Keratin (protein) in it, and it will creep into your hair and fill up the porosity; don't over-use it (it's just a waste), but you can use it every time you shampoo your hair - or about 3 times a week; what your hair doesn't need, it will just slough off...

    Many people use this (incorrectly) and don't get what the 'big deal' is; it's NOT used like regular conditioner, but after you are out of the shower, the way I described; if you don't see the 'froth' or smell the oranges, you are blowing it...

    By the way; this conditioner is used by me to 'test' the hair; after using it the way I described, I will re-dampen the hair slightly and look at the ends: if they won't even hold the water (in other words, they still look dry - even when wet), the hair is 'incompetent' and needs to be cut off / trimmed back to health...

    Let me know what you think...

    I think I can find the Tigi products around here which is my first choice.

    I looked for the Loreal product that VF suggested when I was at the store yesterday but they didn't carry it. I assume that I will have to look at a beauty supply store for it, along with the product that EQ suggested.

    Thanks again for the help!

    I haven't been able to get over to the beauty supply store. Will look for all these great products that everyone has recommended and will let you know what I can find. I don't know that I am going to be able to find some of these products because all we have is a Sally's.

    Re: I need hair help!

    I go swimming a lot and my hair was starting to seriously look like straw. I found two miracle cures. The first is L'oreal's Natures Therapy Mega Moisture Nuturing Creme. This was recomended by two different beauty supply places to me.

    And my second miracle cure is putting pure jojoba oil in the ends of my hair, and combing it through, after I wash it and it is still wet (only use a tiny, tiny amount - like 4 drops). This has made a huge difference on the ends of my hair and has given it a lot more body. It also makes it really shiny too.

    ^ Hmmmm. Probably both. But they may be easier to find at a beauty products store nowadays because they're not as well known/popular as they used to be .

    Can you get it at a beauty supply store or just a salon?

    ^ It's like a hot oil treatment only instead of lasting just a few hours , it lasts for a couple of months. It makes your hair look shiny and you get them in clear or colors.


    I used to do them all the time when I swam and played water polo in college because I was in the water as much as four hours every day.

    I have to blow dry. That is not even an option. You don't want to see me when my hair has dried naturally.

    What is a cellophane treatment?

    Re: I need hair help!

    Low lights with some really good conditioning product built into them and maybe a clear cellophane treatment over all of your hair to protect it from any chlorine or sun damage that you may be getting from your local water and from being outside. Also, blow dry as little as possible . Natural drying is much better for your hair or at least a cool setting on your blow dryer. Drink lots of water too and stay away from caffeine.

    All these tips have been a reminder to myself as well!

    I have tried Philosophy and wasn't impressed but I will give Bedhead a try! I will see if I can find that John Frieda stuff.

    In High School my sister decided she was going to bleach her hair and COMPLETELY fried it. She used John Freida Salon deep conditioner damage control and it did WONDERS... it's expensive, but worth it. Bedhead and philosophy are good brands, too.
