RoxPink, it's great that you're already aware of your undertones and their importance. It sounds like you're very warm, so if you want contrast and more drama, choose a cool-toned shade, like beige blonde or ash brown. If you want something that looks natural, go for a rich medium brown with subtle caramel and auburn highlights.

How can I chose a hair color that will really bring out my features. I love experimenting with hair color but I dont know what really suits me. I have a medium skin tone but gold undertones and brown eyes. Im currently blonde but have been brown, brown w/highlights and a redhead

I was wondering, I'm a blonde that loves red hair and I'm going to get strawberry blonde done again. What is a good conditioner that will add red tones without any sulfates? Is there anything that will help keep the color bright that I can use each time I wash? Thanks!

Pattyg, VO5 hot oil is an oldie but a goodie. It's super cheap, and it really does work. Hask Henna N Placenta also works well, although the ingredients might not sound appealing. If you can go a couple bucks up, Aussie 3 Minute Miracle is pretty great, too.

Luckystar 87, it's really hard to get broken ends to feel soft again, so I sympathize. When my hair starts to get that way from all the experimenting I do, I start going on a long regimen of deep conditioning and no heat styling. For a treatment that hydrates and feels great, I love a good banana and almond oil hair mask. You just get three tablespoons of almond oil, mash a banana into it, and then put the mixture on when you get in the shower or tub. The humidity opens up your hair shaft, so the moisture gets locked in. When you're finished shaving, washing your face, etc, gently shampoo it out, use your normal conditioner, and then rinse with cool water to seal the cuticle.

Brokenbones0, what about using your facial moisturizer on your baby hairs to keep them a little more tame? I've also been known to cut off offending baby hairs, and some people even shave their hairlines, although I don't know that I'd recommend it. Your curls sound cute to me, but it you don't like the ones around your face, you could also use a gel product with a small wand to slick them back, like John Freida Full Repair Touch Up Flyaway Tamer. Mandi from CelebStyle tried it recently and really likes it :)

Hello, Is there any home remedies to get my hair looking and feeling healthy? I just got a hair cut, but my ends are still really dry and brittle.

Marian - for those days you get crunch, you can also scrunch the crunch out! Rub a TINY amount of coconut oil/jojoba oil/shea butter (literally what you'd get on a finger if you rubbed it on the butter), warm it up between your hand and scrunch your hair. That's how I get my best curls. :)

Marian, for getting waves going, I love a good sea salt spray or texturizing spray. My favorite soft texturizer is A Beautiful Life Pre Game texturizing spray—there's nothing in it that dries hard, so your hair keeps its natural feel. If you want to make a salt spray, it's as easy as dumping a couple of tablespoons of sea salt in warm water and then throwing the mixture in a spray bottle. Then, when you get out of the shower, just spritz the solution onto damp or towel-dired hair. If you have fine hair like I do, and even a little bit of wave product has a tendency to gunk your hair up, there's also the bun method. It's fast and easy. Check out this YouTube video for a quick look at how to do it: http://bit.ly/l48zm5 It even works on straight hair, but I've tried it on my kinked open waves and it gets results. Give them a try, and if you don't like any of these I have some more ideas for you!

Fifth Ave Girl, I'm glad you're not going back to that stylist. What I'd recommend for you is a series of strengthening and deep conditioning treatments. To strengthen your hair, I like Redken Extreme CAT spray and Nexxus Emergencee. They both really help with breakage and smoothness. For deep conditioning, I like Neutrogena Deep Recovery Hair Mask. You can also try smashing up an avocado and adding some olive oil, slathering the mixture on your hair, and then wrapping your hair in saran wrap and leaving everything on for 30 minutes or so. It's a great way to get your hair some moisture the natural way.

Hi! I have naturally very curly, pouffy hair. However, the fine hair that is around my hair line always gets out of control - even more curly, some stick out, and it just looks awful unless it's straightened but that looks strange as well. Do you have any suggestions as to what can be done with it?

Hi all! I've been getting Keratin hair treatments for the past 18mo. (I've had 4). I always felt my hair was dry with these treatments, however my stylist tell me that the treatments were good for my hair. Now I can honestly say my hair has NEVER been to broken, brittle and full of serious split ends. It's been 6 months and I am done with the treatments, never again. I'm try to get my hair back in good shape. Any suggestions would be welcome.
