Rbb, is there a sealant you can get at the drugstore? I assume shea butter is a sealant? I don't like the idea of oils on my hair, though, so I'm looking for something else.

Gel for Grays

I need a new gel. I was using Aussie (used to be called "Tizz No Frizz") for a long time. Then I went to the LA Looks Sports Gel. Now I'm using the Aussie Instant Freeze. I use them over Garnier...

I think my hair is losing curl now that it's gray. Maybe it's the haircut. The sides by my ears are real fluffy and undefined. The whole head seems more wavy and less curl. Can I get it back, do...

Thanks, Myrna and Jeep. I do co wash, but I am still trying to get rid of the effects of that Pantene shampoo so I use shampoo now and then. I also have to remember than since I don't use a brush,...

Yes, Jeep, that makes sense. And it's relieving, too. I didn't really want to keep shorter gray hair. I want to see what the curl pattern looks like longer and I sort of want to buck tradition and...

Question about shedding

Last summer I cut my hair shorter to speed up the growing out process. The dye is pretty much all gone now and my hair began to feel thicker and healthier with hardly any shedding. So, I started...

I wore my hair smoother in front with waves in back and my daughter thought I looked older than when I wear my curls defined.

Thanks, rbb, for your reply. I've used VO 5 clarifying shampoo twice and I even used Dawn dish soap this morning. I'm seeing a difference, but I hate to use this harsh stuff on my hair. I found...

Like my profile says, I usually use Jhirmack shampoo once a week to keep any yellowing at bay and it worked fine. I couldn't find it at the store so I bought Pantene's Silver Expressions instead. ...

This is probably the third (maybe fourth) time I've tried to go silver, but the first time I've actually accomplished it. I bought a box of color about six months ago and my daughter said, "No. ...

Thanks, Deb. Yes, it does feel great. I look older, but, NEWS FLASH, I am. For me, it was just time. I do feel, however, that transitioning with curly hair was easier than if my hair was...

Anniversary

I colored my hair for the last time one year ago today. It seems silly to even remember this, but it's kind of a big deal for me. I have just the tiniest hints of brown in some sections. ...

Starmie, it helps me to pay a little more attention to my makeup, too. Without the brown around my face, I can look kind of washed out. I am also trying new colors to wear. I tend to go with...

"Go Set a Watchman". I didn't like Scout as a grown-up and I didn't even finish the book. It felt like it was written by someone other than Harper Lee. "To Kill a Mockingbird" is unparalleled.

One more thing, Starmie, I notice you are from Australia. Do you think there is a cultural thing there about looking older? I have no idea.

Product Question

Jeep, I haven't been around for a long time. If you remember, you and I "went gray" at the same time in 2005, but I didn't last too long. Then I tried again in 2008, but caved for a son's wedding. ...
