My three-year-old daughter got a haircut yesterday, and in keeping with her rambunctious ways and fine hair, it's short and simple. But the stylist put some product on her hair to make the ends flip out a bit, and it's adorable. I didn't notice what she used and I'd like to recreate the look at home. What do I need to buy?

Help! I have a knot in my hair, and I can't get it out. I think there is some gunk in there, but I'm not sure what it is.

Is there some other remedy I can try before cutting a chunk of my hair off? It's in the back and on the top, so it would look a little weird to cut it. [more inside]
