Why is there hair in my phlegm? [more inside]
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?

Where to get a great hair cut in or near SF? 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!
Trying to grow hair long. In that awkward neither-nor stage. What do I do with this stuff? [more inside]
So, I used Lush henna on my hair about a year ago. It has taken that long for it to grow out and now only my ends remain the henna-d color. My roots are beginning to gray so I have a box of semi-permanent hair color I'd like to use but I'm afraid of what will happen to then ends if I use it. Is it safe?

I've asked how to keep my red hair from fading, and those products definitely help, but I've returned to my old standby for touching up my roots: Schwarzkopf Igora toning mousse in Light Copper Brown (5-7). I've finally mastered the art of applying it evenly without staining my fingers. Only problem is, I'm out of the stuff now, and it appears to have been discontinued. What can I use in its place?

my platinum pixie has gotten frizzier over the last few months ... any recommendations? [more inside]
I'm a guy with short hair. I don't use any product and it's sort of parted / flipped in the front. I pretty much just run my hand through it and that's how it stays. However, it's always easier to manipulate it after waking up in the morning (and thus ~24 hours after my last shower). After I shower and let it dry, it doesn't really stay up and is sort of lifeless - not sure why (maybe it's less oily from an active day and a night's sleep?) Might be a silly question, but is there a product that I can put in my hair after a shower to make it easier to manipulate, but without it looking like I have product in my hair?

Dear Ask Me, I have been growing my hair for 3 years, with a goal of donating to wigs for kids (gets wigs to young people with permanent hair loss, as in alopecia, and burn victims), this year I topped their requirement for a foot in length; I want your tips of ensuring the best possible preservation of the hair. I have kept it maintained, but I am hoping there is a "final stretch" treatment that will make it in top shape for donating (not necessarily 'shine', or looks, but strength, and fortitude).

Every morning, I wash my hair. Then I leave for work, while my hair's still damp/wet. Does this make me... weird? [more inside]
I once had brown hair. Over the past ten years, it changed to grey and then to white, with very fast change during stressful periods periods in my life. After recently using a dermatological shampoo for seborrheic dermatitis, it's changing back to brown. Is this normal, why might it be happening, and might it be a problem? [more inside]
My head hair is brown with wisps of grey at the temples. My facial hair is salt/pepper. I would really like some way of colouring my head hair grey. I know that greying is colour loss which is difficult to mimic. I am not interested in repeated temporary solutions as might be used in theatres. I would like something similar to the semi-permanent hair dyes and going to a hair salon for this would be fine. Reason? Why not - it's just another colour. Or lack of it. Upkeep would not be an issue if the result was good. Does such a process / product exist? Thanks.
