Can anyone recommend a good hairspray that can tame those little fuzzy flyaways? I want something light/non-sticky if possible.

*I already use other products that help define my curls and make them fairly shiny, but I still always have those stubborn frizzies on top of my head that don't blend-in with my other hair. Someone on a youtube video says she uses hairspray on them, and then smooths it down with her hands. I want to try that.

 I haven't used hairspray since about 1994, so I'm not even sure what's out there right now.

you'd think conditioner only washing would leave your hair nicely moisturizing but no, my hair is feeling dry. i used the whole foods brand conditioner- it's not the most moisturizing conditioner out there but i thought maybe just using conditioner would condition my hair enough. i also used a flax seed gelee, which has conditioning properties as well. bah. any suggestions/recs for co washing appreciated.

I recently posted my curiosity about using apple cider vinegar for naturally curly hair, as my curls seemed to be getting flat and dull and just all around weird.

I'm not sure what happened, as I can't think of any recent change in my daily routine, but they seem to be getting some of their springiness and natural texture back.

Maybe it's the weather, or the increased amount of water I've been drinking....the above are Saturday morning, still-damp curls.

I'm hopeful.

And I'm still keeping the apple cider vinegar in my fridge just in case.

Has anyone here tried rinsing their hair with apple cider vinegar? I've heard of it used in natural hair care routines as a clarifying wash, and also to boost shine/softness.

My curls have been unusually dry, limp, and lackluster for the last two months. I only use a leave in conditioner, maybe have used hairspray once, in addition to my regular shampoo and moisturizing conditioner.

I'm wondering if apple cider vinegar my help.

Ladies, can you recommend a flat iron that is good quality, but doesn't cost hundreds? (I can't afford a really nice one, and also I'd probably only use it once a month or so anyway. So let's say something you can get at Target or Walmart,etc.)

Actually, I don't even want stick-straight hair, I'd like to be able to easily add (big) curls if I want. I know NOTHING about straighteners. Would a curling brush be better?

So a friend of mine who is a stylist and a salon owner suggested the new Truth about Curls line from Paul Mitchel.

found out a friend works for them and he hooked me up with a sample set of the line

OMG - I am in love!

I have 2b waves (I think) and just tried the shampoo along with the leave in conditioner (very small amount of the 'poo even tho I was a sweaty sweaty mess from a workout a small amount was all that was needed)

my waves/curls are defined but the hair feels really light and there is no frizz

have not tried the Twirl Around url definer but I have high hopes

hello all

I have what I think is 2b hair and I actually prefer to use just conditioner to cleanse the hair and not a lot of products

any one suggest a product that won't weigh my hair down but also moisturize? I did have some luck with WEN products but the latest batch was the wintermint and my hair started falling out in clumps (and I have fine hair to begin with!) the fig was OK but it did seem to weigh down the hair

currently using the conditioner at my gym and this is looking to be a bad idea as while my hair isn't falling out, the frizz is insane

also, samples would be good as I don't want to plunk down 20 bucks on a product and find it doesn't work.

sulfate free would be awesome as well

I am so overwhelmed and was traumatized by the hair falling out that I am a bit gun shy to try anything

Has anyone done (or is currently doing) water only cleansing + conditioner to condition? If so, how's it working for you? I'm very interested in doing water only to cleanse+conditioner but am curious how it's working for others.


UPDATE: Thanks everyone for responding. I tried the water only cleansing+conditioner but my hair was a weird combo of both too dry and oily. Tonight, I did co-wash with V05 Moisture Milks and then put Mixed Chicks leave in conditioner, then a dollop of LA Looks sports gel and plopped. We will see how it works out......

I'm getting my hair professionally dyed for the first time ever. I'm so excited. I'm going slightly darker. Has anyone lost their waves/curls when they dyed their hair? Thanks!
