My very thick hair has apparently thinned. What do I do?

A few months ago, my hair went through a massive shedding. But, because I have thick hair and because it would often shed, I didn't think too much of it at the time. However, my hairdresser says my hair feels thinner . . . and now I am concerned. Help! [more inside]

Fuzzy hair removal – Difficulty: eerie

As I’m growing older, I find my ear lobes to be increasingly covered in fine hairs. My battery powered nose/ear trimmer fails me. Can this fluff be removed via waxing (pain tolerance is high)?

Hair scarf style suggestions?

Looking for ways of wearing a head scarf/wrap/bandana/etc that look BOTH definitely feminine AND appropriate for a young secular white woman. I'm trying to avoid looks that are unisex or tomboyish (which tend to make me, a trans woman, look more masculine than I'm comfortable with). Does such a thing exist?

Hair Cut??? Shivers

I am not my hair... but I'd like to at least be friends.

Three or four times over the past four years, I have had the haircut of my dreams. But for reasons I genuinely don’t understand, no matter how many pictures I bring into the salon of what I’m after, it has been extremely difficult to keep getting the same haircut. So I turn to the hair professionals and other styling experts of Metafilter: please help me become fluent in stylist-speak so that I can explain exactly what I want! [more inside]

Good Sites that Review Hair Color

I've started coloring my hair at home. I have found many sites that offer reviews for these products, but they are organized by product, not by color. For example, on Amazon, all reviews for L'Oreal Preference are all in a clump. What I'd like to find is a site where people have commented on specific colors. For example, I'd like a set of reviews for L'Oreal Preference Medium Ash Blonde (8A). I realize I can search Amazon by keyword, but I feel like there must be something out there that does a better job of organizing this. [more inside]

What the hell is going on with my scalp?

For the past 6 months, I've been in an on/off battle with my scalp - mostly the crown and a bit towards the back. It itches badly when I break a sweat (I workout daily), and then produces flakes in rough patches. The flakes build up (and re-build) incredibly fast - like overnight, in patches that are thick and dry. I've tried all the OTC products (T-Gel, T-Sal, Nizoral, Dermarest, Tea Tree shampoo, etc) - and they offer some temporary relief - but the flakes, patches, and sweat-itchiness continues. Please help!

What causes hairs to curl after reaching a certain length?

My friend's son's hair starts getting curly after it grows a few inches long. What would cause hair to switch from being straight to being curly after growing a certain length (or, probably more accurately, after a certain amount has passed since a certain point on the hair was created)?

Looking for my favorite barber's new gig

I used to get great haircuts from a barber named Yollanda in Brooklyn. She worked at Badlands Salon in Park Slope, but when I called them up last week, they told me she no longer works there, and they obviously have no incentive to tell me where she's working now. I'd love to track her down— she's the best and I wish we had exchanged contact info! All I know is that she's originally from Jamaica, and lives near Atlantic Terminal. Anyone know her and where she's cutting hair right now?

How to best disguise my thinning lady-hair?

Asking for more aesthetic advise, not medical. My dark brown hair is wavy and about 6 inches past my shoulder blades, and falling out at a rapid pace.

Looking for a helpful hairdresser in London

I'm going to be in London this weekend and am looking for a men's hairdresser/barber.

According to this, Justin Trudeau spends less than two minutes a day on his glorious hair. Is it really that easy - just rub your fingers through your hair with the right pomade - or does it also require a glorious haircut from just the right barber?

What differentiates clipper blades and clipper guide combs?

We have an Oster Classic 76 hair clipper that the wife uses to cut my (thick, no-joke) hair and we love it. We have a full set of guide combs but only ever use 3 of them (#4, 5, and 6) for my head and I'm considering getting those size equivalents (0A, 1, and 1A I think) in blade form with the hopes of making the job easier for her. Could you help me understand if this is dumb because I might have this all wrong and not be doing any good buying said blades?
