Make tangly hair less tangly/velcroey & more slippery?

How can I make my tangly/velcroey hair very very slippery and untangly? (I'd rather not use silicones, which is what most detangling sprays seem to be mostly composed of, because I think they do actually make my hair more birds-nest-y after a couple of days.) [more inside]

This dress, but less expensive

I love this dress, which I tried on in the store (no belt in the store). But $150 for what is essentially a big comfy sack is completely ridiculous. Where can I get a dress like this - soft fabric, cut small enough for my petite frame (I tried on and liked the XS but could go smaller), basic black? I really like the shape, with longer sides, particularly. I was also easily able to layer a shirt over it, or under it, when I tried it on.

How to blunt the edges of aluminum earrings

I bought some beautiful stamped aluminum earrings (at least, I assume they're aluminum), and the edges are razor-sharp. They are thin sheets of metal, about the thickness of soda can walls. I would like to blunt or cover the edges so they're less sharp. [more inside]

ISO plus sized evening dress in Barcelona

I find myself needing to buy an evening dress (below the knee, shoulders covered) in Barcelona tomorrow. The catch: I am around size 16 US and do not relish spending lots of time in stores that will not have anything that fits me. We are staying in Gracia and do not have a car. I'd prefer something within that neighborhood if possible, though metro and cab are ok if needed. Recommendations as to where to shop? [more inside]

Help me track down this bathrobe!

So I just watched an eminently forgettable movie trailer, called ironically enough, Unforgettable (2017) starring Katherine Heigl and Rosario Dawson. The movie does not appeal, however, the floral bathrobe/kimono that Rosario Dawson's character is wearing at 1min47 seconds into the trailer definitely does. Your challenge - where can I buy it? Mefites, don't let me down. I know you can do this.

In which order should I tan and shave my legs?

My best friend's wedding is a week from today and I am wearing a super beautiful bridesmaid's dress that will reveal my arms, knees, and lower legs. These parts of my body are pasty and pale, slightly bruised, and hairy because I haven't yet started wearing anything that would show off those areas. What will be the best way to hide the cuts and bruises, get a reasonably realistic tan, and get rid of the hair at least on my legs? [more inside]

White Patch of Hair

My hair has been longish for about year. I cut it all off tonight. It's now extremely short. Like clippers short. The big surprise was that I have one circular white patch about the size of a half dollar on the back of my head. That spot is so white and my hair so short that it actually looks like I shaved that particular spot. Like I imagine people will think I had a barbershop accident. It's not a great look.

How can I learn to identify the most common perfumes?

I was riding my bike last week and a car drove by that absolutely reeked of a very common perfume. I realized that I want to be a more scent-aware person that can smell a perfume and build a story about the person and their sense of style. What are the 20 most common, mass-marketed perfumes in the US and how can I teach myself to identify them without buying any? Most perfumes annoy me, but I think they will annoy me less if I know what they are. Kind of like identifying raucous bird calls.
