Your skin tone/coloring: Fair/Cool
How often do you wash your hair? Every other day or every three days
What’s your go-to shampoo and/or conditioner? Orlando Pita Argan Gloss
Must-have styling tool or product? T3 Hairdryer, John Frieda Straight Fixation

-Warm light-medium
-Every two days
-Whatever is on sale (have yet to find one that does enough for me to continue buying it so I just accept the fact that they are just to clean and condition my hair and expect nothing else from them)
-Any serum (have not found a HG for my wavy frizzy hair yet but I have to put something in it)

I am obviously frustrated with my hair.

Have you ever tried Curls Creamy Curl Cleanser? I like it a LOT more than Diva Curl, which I found deeper cleaning than most sulfate-free products but almost as bad for frizz as a regular shampoo. I’m wavy-frizzy too, and it’s the only thing I’ve repurchased so far, though I do put a harsher shampoo in my rotation because I get buildup over time with it. My boyfriend is very very curly and doesn’t have issues with that, he doesn’t shampoo with anything else anymore. Just putting that out there. 🙂

Your hair sounds pretty similar to mine — I randomly purchased the Head & Shoulders Smooth and Silky shampoo/conditioner (even though I don’t have dandruff — I don’t know if that makes any difference), because it was on sale, and I really like it! The shampoo doesn’t strip your hair and the conditioner isn’t super heavy; I haven’t had, like, ANY frizz issues since using it. Plus it’s cheap! It’s just really conditioning. And smells great. Hope this helps!

I have never tried head and shoulders, I always thought it was for dandruff too! Thanks, that definitely helps and I will try this one out too. I have never repurchased a shampoo and conditioner so I am hoping that changes with one of these suggestions!

Skintone/Coloring: Fairly light, very neutral; dark-featured.

Frequency: 1-2 times a week in cooler weather, 2-3 in hotter months. I have dry, coarser hair, and I don’t use styling products on a regular basis, so I can get by on less frequent hair washing.

Go-To Shampoo/Conditioner: Whatever I find on sale… However, for my daughter who has a thick mass of fine hair prone to tangling, we’ve found Paul Mitchell “The Detangler” to be absolutely HG! We’ve tried sooo many things over the years, and have recently stumbled upon this gem.

Must Have Tool/Product: Aside from the aforementioned conditioner for my daughter, I’m perfectly fine with a brush, towel, and headband/ponytail holder, LOL!

Your skin tone/coloring: Porcelain
How often do you wash your hair? every 4 days or so
What’s your go-to shampoo and/or conditioner? Alaffia Everyday Shea vanilla mint shampoo & conditioner. Briogeo don’t despair repair deep conditioning mask.
Must-have styling tool or product? I don’t use anything else.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light/neutral
How often do you wash your hair? Daily (morning)
What’s your go-to shampoo and/or conditioner? Living Proof Full shampoo and conditioner
Must-have styling tool or product? Living Proof Full thickening mousse, LP Restore hair mask 3x/week, LP Restore Instant Repair (ends only) for blow drying, LP Flex shaping hairspray (smells good and holds hair without stickiness)

Your skin tone/coloring: warm light
How often do you wash your hair? 2 to 3 times a week
What’s your go-to shampoo and/or conditioner? I use Lush shampoo bars a lot
Must-have styling tool or product? Leave-in serums. I haven’t found my HG yet so the brand doesn’t matter at this point. I’ll try It’s a 10 brand next.

Your skin tone/coloring: NC20-25
How often do you wash your hair? once every 3 to 4 days…sometimes even longer in the winter.
What’s your go-to shampoo and/or conditioner? I prefer Aveda and incorporate the Invati shampoo every other shampoo to help with thinning hair.
Must-have styling tool or product? Can’t live without Oribe styling products. Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray is my fav. I have short very choppy hair and this lends some body and texture to my super fine strands.

I just want to thank you for your concealer tip (to apply concealer and then colour corrector) and the best tip was not to powder. That has made a huge difference. Thank you!

Wendy, Me too!Thanks a ton!I adjusted a bit though. I still am doing the corrector under though. I do use the orange by Armani. I tried it once over. I really noticed no difference except that I can get a better feel for where to place it by putting the concealer after. Plus it is straight orange, so I think I was worried it would look orange. I tried skipping eye cram and that did not work for me But, my skin is dry. So I just use very little of my eye cream and am skipping the powder. Your right, it last less long. But, I just pop my concealer and corrector in my bag and made a small take-a-long of eye cream. Much easier to touch up than a powdered-over under eye. Many Thanks to you my friend! 🙂

I agree Wendy! Besides getting smarter on which products to buy and not buy, I’ve picked up so much
helpful info as far as my beauty routine goes. Also, just my attitude regarding it is different. I used to be a little embarrassed because I really did not know there was actually people who had an actual “collection” of makeup. My sister had me talked into seeing a psychiatrist at one point about it! Now,im like..it’s my $.my finances are straight otherwise, mind yo business,lol.I love Temptalia and the community just as much! I’m addicted. If Christine shuts it down,I will go into withdrawal!:D

Skin colouring – NC15-ish
How often do i wash my hair – 2-3 times a week (used to wash everyday but i find i was stripping all the oils out of it!)
Go-to Shampoo – created by my colourist, his own brand (which is a symbol – like when Prince changed his name to a symbol – and 112 – which is the number of his salon). Sounds kinda pretentious but the shampoo and conditioner are amazing!
Must-have styling products – Shu Uemera’s Fiber Lift and L’Oreal Professional SteamPod cream (that truly coats the hair from all heat!!)
Styling tools – i’m in desperate need of a new hairdryer (any suggestions for fine hair?) and loving my Click’nCurl set!!

The Drybar hair dryer- it’s yellow- I think it’s called the Buttercup- is awesome! I don’t dry my hair too often, but when I do, it does an awesome job- and quickly!
I’ve heard GHD had good dryers too!

I’ve used the T3 for a long time and it’s super gentle with great time and a cold press, and I also have a sensitive scalp along with fine hair, it that helps. 🙂 I hope you find what suits you best!

Thank you both for the blow dryer suggestions! I think that all of the choices are sold at Sephora so i will just have to wait until November to get the best deal possible.
Temptalia readers are the best!!!

Absolutely! And I so agree with you! Temptalia readers are the best! Look above at Wwendy and how she was searching for a new solution for her under eyes and finally found it! When she posted that.. Others saw and lol at them thanking her so much! It’s such s beautiful thing! So many have been so utterly helpful and kind to me, if not have placed orders confidently without them! And Christine is amazing! This really is such a wonderful place! I have the featherlight t3 I purchased a a deal on hsn eons ago but if you google and really dig in, you can find serious bargains in places you’d never expect that allow returns! Try the company website! Usually the first purchase makes them happy and offers you a deal! (Like with clarisonic) So all hope is found! I’m so glad we could help and I hope you find a compatible price soon! 🙂 XOXO!!!

I never use any tools other than safe for hair elastics to hold bins and ponytails. My hair curls if I just twist my finger around it or twist it. Otherwise it’s straight.

Must-have styling tool or product: One ‘n Only Brazilian Tech Smoothing Lotion for my straightening blow-out. And for when I pull my hair up into a high ponytail or bun, I use Silk Elements Straight Edges Edging Gel so that my fly-aways and baby hairs stay up and back off my face.

What’s your go-to shampoo and/or conditioner? I colour my hair so I use either Biolage (which my colourist uses) or Joico for coloured hair; conditioner….I rarely use a trad. conditioner any more but when I do, it’s usually Redken All Soft or AG UltraMoist but I am more likely to use a leave in and I have way too many on the rotation – Ojon Damage Reverse Serum, AG Fast Food Leave in or their new BB cream, Moroccan Oil or Macadamia Oil, Aveda Smooth Infusion Glossing Straightener (and these are just my “faves” – I have about half a dozen other products that I don’t use as often because I don’t like them as much). One of my best ways to get the hair I want is to mix Moroccan Oil and the Aveda Glossing Straightener.
Must-have styling tool or product? My flat iron. Honestly, a good flat iron has changed my life. My original CHI is still going strong but I did buy another one last summer as I needed something “dual voltage”. I often don’t even bother blowing my hair dry any more, which lessens the damage. I also got a ridiculously expensive but really great clamping comb thingy for flat ironing my hair) for lifting and holding the tricky bits at the back without burning my fingers). Oh, I just looked online and it’s called a “tension comb”.

How often do you wash your hair?: Every other day, sometimes every day depending on how often I’m working out.

What’s your go-to shampoo and/or conditioner? Shea Moisture because it’s cheap but has far fewer of the nasty stuff most cheap shampoos/conditioners have!

Go-to shampoo and Conditioner: Alterna caviar. But I got a 500 point perk of Bumble and Bumble hairdresser’s oil set and have been using it and actually like it just as much. I think it’s cheaper. So, I may look into it or something else once I am out.
Must-have styling tool or product: I have 2. I good heat protectant and Oribe texture spray

– Warm light medium (Asian)
– Every other day usually, occasionally I’ll go an extra day
– Pureology Hydrate

Radiant Red Colour Magnifying Daily Conditioner.

Must-have styling tool or product? I don’t style my hair fancy very often. A hairbrush and a stretch-comb headband or a ponytail elastic are my usual. If I want to get fancy, the Bed Head Deep Waver: It’s the only thing that works on my hair. Curling iron curls just fall out instantly.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light Neutral

What’s your go-to shampoo and/or conditioner? Chagrin Valley Ayurvedic Herb solid bar shampoo! I rarely condition as my hair is super short and it doesn’t get frizzy

Must-have styling tool or product? Dry shampoo and hairspray for days I don’t wash. Because my hair is so short, I spray it in place or else it’s just everywhere.

Your skin tone/coloring: My coloring? Don’t you want to know my hair type? That influences the products you pick. I’m light olive with dark eyes & hair. My straight hair is medium textured, shoulder-length, layered, and I have enough of it for three people.

How often do you wash your hair? 2-3 times per week. More often if the weather is warm of if I work up a sweat.

What’s your go-to shampoo and/or conditioner? Head & Shoulders Green Apple Shampoo for dandruff. I follow that with L’Oreal Evercreme Nourishing Shampoo bc it’s silicone-free and has oils (most dandruff shampoos have silicone and silicone build-up flattens hair at my roots–so the L’oreal Evercreme helps me get rid of some silicone without stripping). I follow with L’Oreal Evercreme Nourishing Conditioner unless I use a hair mask. I haven’t found a hair mask I love but right now, I’m using Dermorganic’s.

Must-have styling tool or product? A hairdryer and some sort of leave-in with some heat protection. Right now, that’s L’oreal Colour Vibrancy Spray.

Your skin tone/coloring: NC 15-20.

How often do you wash your hair? Everyday. My hair gets out of shape easily. Only after washing and blow-drying can I restyle it.

What’s your go-to shampoo and/or conditioner?Currently it’s Brazilliant from Lush Cosmetics. I love their shampoo bar since I’m in between places and I shower at the gym i go to. So size matters, the smaller the better. And those 3 oz. shampoo bars last 1.5 months (sometimes more!) on my short yet very thick hair on a daily wash base. For conditioner I go with Aveeno. They are pretty good in that price range with lots of discounts available in multiple drugstores.

Must-have styling tool or product? blow dryer and round brush. I use Drybar’s full-pint medium round brush.

Your skin tone/coloring:MAC NC30-35, Neutral, Dark Brown almost Black ombre to a light brown wavy hair

What’s your go-to shampoo and/or conditioner? right now it’s Intelligent Nutrients PureLux shampoo and I don’t have to condition my hair afterwards. This shampoo is creamy and very gentle. Doesn’t have any of the “usual suspects”/SLS/parabens/silicones/phthalates/etc.

What’s your go-to shampoo and/or conditioner? I use either L’Oréal EverPure Volumizing shampoo & conditioner, and Moroccanoil Extra Volume shampoo & conditioner since both sets are in the shower, but I don’t really have a go-to. I’m going to try cleansing conditioners soon!

– Lush shampoo (the one with bananas) and Lush american cream conditioner
– paddle brush and blow dryer 🙂

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair/neutral with long, thick, colored brunette hair

How often do you wash your hair? “Don’t wash your hair every day! Wash your hair as infrequently as possible! I haven’t washed my hair in 5 years!” Well, I tried. I really did. But I finally went back to washing my hair every day and it’s been so much better – my scalp isn’t as dry, itchy, and flaky; and my hair isn’t as oily. I use sulfate-free shampoo, so it’s not as harsh.

What’s your go-to shampoo and/or conditioner? I like the OGX brand, but I always have L’Oreal Everpure Sulfate-Free Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner and Trader Joe’s brand conditioner (that stuff is the best!)

Must-have styling tool or product? Hot air brush! And Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Cream and Kerastase Oleo-Relax serum.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair with neutral/warm undertones, NC15. I’ve just moved back to a much colder climate and I can see my skintone is fairer already!

How often do you wash your hair? Every other day – my hair is short and can get a bit greasy on day two, but I hate washing it more often.

What’s your go-to shampoo and/or conditioner? Sebastian Color Ignite Mono! I never wanted to make the step up in cost, because I was happy with my Redken, but after being given some Sebastian products, I now love them!! Plus it’s actually lasted me an insanely long time. I finally ran out of the Sebastian shampoo recently, and I had a bottle of Redken shampoo in the cupboard, but I’m nowhere near as happy with it now.

Must-have styling tool or product? It’s a tough call between my hairdryer and my straighteners, but it would have to be my hairdryer. I can’t get enough volume out of my hair if I air dry it!

Your skin tone/coloring:
NW15, N1, MUFE HD 117
How often do you wash your hair?
Twice a week, it is quite dry.
What’s your go-to shampoo and/or conditioner?

Flattening iron and Osis Flatliner Iron serum

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, thick mid length medium-to-dark hair.
How often do you wash your hair? Every 3 or 4 days, longer if I can get away with it
What’s your go-to shampoo and/or conditioner? Aussie Moisture shampoo and 3 minute Miracle deep conditioner, or lush shampoo bars. I still have some B&B surf hair left as well, the shampoo is good but the conditioner doesn’t really do much for me.
Must-have styling tool or product? I always use a serum or oil after washing my hair, otherwise it gets mega frizzy. Also, dry shampoo is always necessary! The Dove one is fantastic, I go through them so quickly though.

Your skin tone/coloring: light to medium warm (getting some color again, finally)

How often do you wash your hair? Every other day.

What’s your go-to shampoo and/or conditioner? I alternate many shampoos and conditioners, but currently in my shower are the Wella Elements shampoo and the Elsève anti hairloss shampoo plus the Kérastase Chronologiste mask and the Klorane mango butter conditioner.

Skin tine: brown or nw43 (summer shade)
Nc45 winter

How often do You wash your hair: 3 times a week but it really depends on my activities and whether I’m swimming or hitting the beach alot that week. And how sweaty I get in the gym

Shampoo: Tressemmee
Conditioner: Tressemmee for curly hair or for dry/damaged hair

Styling tools: I don’t use styling tools because my hair is naturally curly but when I want to style and straighten it I use a Corioliss flat iron that can also be used to curl your hair with.
I prefer to wear my hair curly it’s unique and beautiful besides it will not stay straight in humidnweather

I’m naturally neutral to cool and VERY fair, but I selftan myself up to what’s probably an NC30.
I typically wash my hair twice a week. A little more if I’ve been wearing it straightened, since I touch it more then and the lack of texture shows oil more. A little less (yes, seriously) if it’s curled because the hairspray and the curls make it look cleaner longer.
I haven’t found a ride or die yet for my frizzy, coarse, wavy hair. I rotate through a few, like Sexy Smooth Hair, Pureology Hydrate, and the John Frieda Volumizing ones, but my favorite is Living Proof’s Perfect Hair Day.
I love It’s a 10 Plus Keratin, Big Sexy Hair Root Pump Plus, and my 1″ Sultra curling wand.

Your skin tone/coloring: Pale warm-neutral
How often do you wash your hair? – Depends, every 3-4 day if I don’t work out
What’s your go-to shampoo and/or conditioner? – Barnängen Aloe Vera conditioner and Kinky-Curly Knot Today! I try to stay away from shampoo with sulfates and I can’t find one without…
Must-have styling tool or product? – Tangle Teezer, my hair gets tangled too easy!

skin-tone: light to medium. Usually neutralish but I think the sun is giving me some olive.
Washing: Whenever my hair wants it. Usually twice a week. Sometimes more if I have been doing yard work. If it feels dirty, wash it. My hair is curly so it does get wet everyday, can’t brush it because tge curls lose all their volume and I look like a cocker spaniel in a show coat.
Shampoo/Conditioner: Lush’s Big (the sea salt feels so good!) and veganese (nice and lightweight so the curls are bouncy)
Styling Tools/Product: coconut oil if my scalp gets dry and Miss Jessie’s Quick Curls if I am wearing my hair down for the day. A wide tooth comb and boar bristle brush for smoothing fly aways
