  1. Hey Lauren, welcome I'm Lis hope you enjoy the forums
  2. Hey Jessica, I'm Lis welcome to makeuptalk Always great to have a supportive husband to product addictions, lol
  3. I've tried it a few times and do like the results that I get, though it takes getting use to the pain. I'd recommend not having too long of hairs and prepping well with cleaning before and maybe even using a powder or oil to help, that way you don't have to keep going over the same section. Then of course using some type of calming lotion afterwards or even one that is suppose to minimize growth as it can be painful when first starting. I like it though, I still shave occasionally just because of sheer laziness. Let me know how it goes for you
  4. Hey Rebeccar, welcome I came as a lurker and still lurk around lol. I hope you enjoy the tips and help and aren't as hesitant about posting as me lol.
  5. I agree julep's oxygen is pretty good, though it is pricey. Have you tried Nail magic botanical nail strengthener with horsetail, it is at sally's beauty supply it seems to work pretty good you can use it as a base and top coat, it isn't as expensive.
  6. I like shea moisture, it has gotten good reviews for the price and ingredients. A lot of hair companies are jumping on board and have less chemicals than before, so it would just depend on what you are trying to avoid. If you are trying for all organic ingredients you can check out this small list http://www.organicconsumers.org/bodycare/links.cfm not all have hair care but are usda certified organic for beauty products. If you just want better ingredients and don't care about completely certified organic you could look up these brands I'm sure each will have some line catered to repairing hair and controlling frizz. I'm somewhat bias, my favorite of the listed is shea moisture. But I'm a product junkie so I have other brands as my favorites for my hair type. Aveeno Active Naturals Burt's Bees gud Jason Natural Cosmetics Kiss My Face Nature's Gate Shea Moisture Yes to Carrots Yes to Cucumbers I've even heard good things about Trader joes haircare, so I'm sure there are even more not listed, if you visit health or whole food type stores. Sorry to seem so vague, but there are a lot of good ones out there. Hope this was somewhat helpful, my hair is thick and curly so I'm not sure on the thinning issue, except for oils and hair masks :/
  7. L'Oreal has a line that I hear is pretty good for the price. If you want to splurge carols daughter has a good one in their monoi line. HoneyClouds spa gave some good tips too, as unfortunately from all we learn about hair split end prevention is key. It's usually recommended to trim off the splits so that your hair isn't further damaged as products tend to only hide the problem. But getting a good heat protectant should help as well as being mindful of the tools you use when combing. Hope you find something that works for you
  8. I agree I like sally hansens strips, they are easy after you get the hang of it though I with they would keep making more colors I like the glitter ones best lol.
