If you could design your dream hair product, what would it to your hair and why?

What's something you can't stand in a product and what do you love about other products?

I personally like the smell in products. I love a product that is moisturizing but isn't oily. I have used some products in the past and while they moisturized, two or three days later my skin was breaking out.

My dream hair product would have natural and organic ingredients, it would smell like coconut, it would moisturize my hair and make it appear shiny without clogging my pores.

Then you would love pure, unrefined, extra virgin coconut oil. I will sing the praises of this stuff until the end.

I get it at stores like Whole Foods Market or the local health food store. is a very light oil (even though its solid at room temperature) It easily penentrates the hair shaft so it doesn't sit on the surface making your hair or scalp greasy. And even though its an oil, it also has moustirizing qualities.

I'm pretty sure the coconut oil I have is pure and unrefined. As for extra virgin...::runs to bathroom to check:: nope. Once this can runs out I'll get extra virgin but it will be a while though. It lasts so long considering how short my hair is.

Helene Curtis used to put out this shampoo that to me, smelled like crisp autumn apples.

Haven't seen the stuff since the 80's, but it came in a Red bottle, and it smelled heavenly.

I have super oily hair, and now that we live with hard water well, I ended up cutting 12 inches off and donating it because I could not get it fixed.

So...my dream product would smell like those crisp apples, make my hair shiny, soft, and manageable, while controlling the oils in my hair.

I bought some hard water shampoo at Sally's, but after just one use, I can't get my fingers through my hair. It's just awful!

Have you looked into a filter?
I could have sworn they have a filter that helps with hard water.

Try using distilled water as your final hair rinse. Its cheap and you can get it in large bottles in the water section of your grocery or Walmart store. Try it!
I used to do this when I didnt have soft water.

We have a water softener. I'm renting a place and the landlord refuses to try anything b/c he said the town we live in is horrible with sediment and iron.

I'll try the distilled water suggested, I'd love to have shiny hair again.

My hair looks like birds have nested and pooped in it all day, and that's right after it dries from the shower!!

This is off the subject but back in the 50's there was a product called Charles Antell that was supposed to be a miracle compound with lanolin that would keep you from going bald. It was many years later that someone actually had a lab analyze the stuff and it was identical to lard.

My hair is fine and thin, but also wavy, frizzy and oily! It's also halfway down my back. I'd love a product that made my waves smooth and shiny, without making it look oily or weighed down, made it look a little fuller, and kept the frizz away all day.

It would also have to be something I could put in my hair right after a shower, comb through and then air dry, because I don't like to fuss. It should have a light, but not overpowering, scent and be as natural as possible.

I currently use the Frizz-Ease creme, which works ok most of the time, but if I put in too much it looks greasy, and if I get into a breeze my hair just gets frizzy and wild again.
