1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    my hair kind of sucks... you really can't do anything with it. I don't think its dry but tends to look dry at times. It is also very thick and I have alot of hair. Its very hard--at least for me--to style. Idealy, I would like to my hair to look healthy and moist and I would like for it to cooperate with a messy style. My goal has proven somewhat impossible. It always seems to look its driest when I put any kind of styling product in it. I've gotten to the point where I get really short haircuts and get them really often and just let my hair sit naturally (which actually looks good on me, but I often find myself wishing I could style it). I've never tried any shampoo or conditioner that I have paid more than $10 for and have never used a product that I've paid more than 15-20 dollars for. Is this probably the reason why? I'm willing to purchase something pricier for significant improvement but I guess I'm somewhat reluctant to waste money trying out different brands and have it be in vain. Anyone have any similar experience or any tips?


    A good hairstylist should be able to make some suggestions and help you find a style you are happy with. One doesn't have to pay a ton of $ for a good stylist.

    Also, if you go to a stylist, they should have samples for you to try. If they charge anything, it may be $1-$3 for some travel size samples.

    Don't be afraid to try different stylists and see which of their suggestions work for you.

    I know it's a late reply, but I just read your post. I'm looking up this "kese"...are these mits somewhat abrasive?

    Yes. They're designed to be exfoliating.

    Now I am intrigued...I feel like getting one just to compare to my Salux cloth, which I love.

    The best shampoo that I have ever used, is Jean-Marc Maniatis SHIINE, bioacide de fruits. A close second, is Queen Helene, Mint Julep.

    I have very thick, wavy hair and the best I've tried so far is Anthony Logistics shampoo and conditioner.

    I'll second the Nioxin recommendation. They also have a formulation made specifically for "thick, unruly" hair. I foolishly bought it despite having fine, thinning hair [​IMG]

    Nioxin is over priced to the max! Doesn't do a thing for thinning hair. It was developed by a dermatologist (yay!) who was trying to help her dad reverse his balding. It doesn't work, to say the least. If you want something for thinning hair then try a tea trea oil shampoo or something with buckthorn, so I've heard.

    All you need is a shampoo without sodium laureth sulfate, which is hard because most drugstore and salon brands have it.

    If you want something easy and cheap, use this:
    http://www.vitacost.com/Jason-Shampoo-Natural-Jojoba
    http://www.vitacost.com/JasonConditionerJojoba

    Doesn't dry your hair out at all. Salon "product" is over priced.

    I haven't tried their kelp or biotin flavors but next time I will try the biotin one for S&G.

    Listening to hairstylists talk about hair is outrageously funny. They think they are doctors.

    Yes I was an idiot and let my haircut lady talk me into some Nioxin scalp treatment stuff. What a joke.

    Brings back fond memories of going to a drunkard and him cutting into a cowlick, then telling me I was going bald.

    I'm going to try the Jason shampoo though. I like their aloe gel as an aftershave balm sometimes. It's also good to treat my cat's hot-spots around his neck.

    I use Biolage. I am right now trying the Costco generic but as soon as I'm done back to Biolage Matrix and J Crew Conditioner.
