Weird disease? While cleansing my skin (oil cleansing method), I eventually pulled out what I thought were blackheads, but were actually a mass of black fibers tangled together (too thin for hair). Since noticing this, I realize that some of the blackheads my skin releases appear to be these same fibers. The only thing I can find online is Morgellons disease, but I don't have the feeling of bugs crawling under my skin, and I don't have lesions. Any ideas? [more inside]

Looking for a hairdresser in Orlando that works well with long curly men's hair. [more inside]
I have managed to reach the age of forty-mumble with no idea how to deal with hair-care products. I shampoo regularly (Head and Shoulders for the dandruff works fine), keep my hair fairly short (but not buzzcut, because my head looks stupid when the hair is too short), and sometimes blow it dry, but all this other stuff - pomade, hair spray, the stuff the salons call 'product' is beyond me. Where can I go to find out about how to use them? [more inside]

My four-year-old daughter got a haircut the other day, and as part of the haircut, the stylist sprinkled what looked like glittery talcum powder on her face and hair. She loved having "sparkles" on her face and hair all day and was sad when she had to wash them off in the bath. I'm not sure how this stuff works, but is there anything affordable and low-maintenance that I can get for her to help get her sparkle back?
Help me create a functional light bulb crown! I saw this amazing sculpture at an art walk this week, and I'd like to make it into something wearable for Burning Man. My guess is that I can start by buying this type of bulb, but I need some advice beyond that. Wiring type and strategy? Batteries? How about affixing them to my head? I have long hair and could do something creative with little buns - I want to secure everything in a minimalist way (no baseball hats) so that the focus is on the lights.

I've just moved to the country from New York City, and although many things about living here are easier, the water is really really hard. My skin is fine but my hair looks just awful--where it used to be big and bouncy, it's now flat, dull and frizzy. I tried adding baking soda to my shampoo (per thriftyfun.com) and that helped for about a day but now things are back to terrible. I just came from getting a haircut--which I'd hoped would help--but it's still awful. Help me. Please. Products, techniques, anything?

I have very long hair and I've decided I'd like to chop it to a bob, but I want to go to someone who can do a great job and give me advice on what will look good since I've never had this haircut before. Any recommendations for amazing salons or stylists in the SF Bay Area (SF, east bay, wherever...) or up north in Santa Rosa/Petaluma/Sebastapol areas? I'm not made of money, so salons at all price points appreciated!
