I too have been addicted to the Kerastase Oleo Relax line, although recently it is not doing a good enough job on fighting the Florida heat and humidity. By the time I step out of my house and make it to my car, my hair has been going flat and becoming frizzy.

I went to Ulta and found Redken's Smooth Down line and I am really loving it a lot!! I purchased "Butter Treat" which is like an intense deep hydrating conditioner and then used "Heat Glide" leave in serum before I blow dried/flat ironed.

It is 92 and sunny out today and I had zero frizz issues when I went out this weekend. I definately reccomend this line to kill the frizz!!

^ i have heat glide and just hate how heavy/sticky it is. it's even hard to wash off my hands. i can imagine how much harder i have to wash it out of my hair =\
i discovered the Phyto line and it is just amazing. it's super light but very effective. i may stock up on that next.

Damaged Hair (colored, bleached, heat styled)
I didn't see a recent post about this so I thought I'd start one.

Does anyone have frizzy, damaged hair?

My hair is FRIED after I dyed it black for years, then decided to try and bleach as much of it out as I could. I ended up with an uneven red so then I had to tone it w/ more red dye. I also blow dry & flat iron my hair daily because if I didn't I'd end up looking like Edina from Ab Fab.

Any way, I'm looking for some tips & good products to maintain the frizzy mess w/out making my hair all greasy. It's summer now and quite humid.

Thanks!

My hair is in terrible condition. I've naturally got dark brown hair but I've been doing a full head of blonde highlights for around 5+ years, combined with straightening and blow-drying it every 2nd day

May hair stylist thinks the condition has been greatly improving over the past year, but it still looks like a damaged mess to me.

I know the feeling but after having had my hair bleched for years and I swear by the following........

L'oreal purple shampoo in the silver bottle - great for keeping brassiness away and then Redken All Soft conditioner

then

Redken Anti snap leave in conditioner

and as often as possible I put almond oil on my hair and leave it on overnight which really seems to work for me.

Hope that helps

My hair has responded really well to a product called Terax Creama. I found it on clearance at Harmon's for $1.42. It is excellent.

I think this would be the right place to ask this but last night I made the horrible mistake of trying to highlight my dark brown hair with an out-of-the box kit and now my hair is orange It looks awful and I hate it so much. Is there anything I can do to take away the orangeyness or darken it back to brown without dying it again because I want to change it ASAP but my hair is completely fried. Please help!

^ You're probably not going to be able to get rid of the orange at home (if you went to a salon, maybe, but they might tell you to just leave it due to the risk of further damage bleaching to get rid of the orange would cause). You can probably put a brown semi permanent over it and it should hide the orange temporarily and then you can just retouch it when needed. You might want to choose one that has a bit of red in it so the orange parts don't go green... been there, done that!

I've been here. I went to the salon and they dyed my hair WHITE blonde when I just wanted a few highlights to brighten it up. I went back then they proceeded to put orange highlights in my hair which I did NOT ask for but got anyway. Anyways, $200 later I decided enough was enough. I fixed it with a box treatment and it looks wayyy better. I suggest getting an "ash" colour rather than a warm colour or else it will come out looking very bronzy and still orange. Maybe even a bit red. An ash will tone things down nicely
Best of luck !
