so now you need to get used to humidity as well. i'm assuming that makes your hair harder to style? plus you need to pick a new stylist. i remember when i first moved to the bay area. the thing i missed most was my former hairdresser.
Czb- a devacut is the cut from the people behind devacurl. Some people swear by them, but I think they probably work better on hair that's curlier than mine.
Kris-im with you on the blow dryer. I have an old elchim, and its still kicking after 10 years too.

That's the thing I like about the Solano. I dropped it and cracked the little plastic thing on the lint screen. I sent it to Solano with a $30 check and they did a tune up, cleaned it, and replaced the lint screen.
wcg - i looked up the deva cut and it seems that only a few salons in SF even do them. and i'm not familiar with any of the salons so i will stay put.
kris - seattle is more expensive than newport? that's crazy!
The two places I've looked at are quite a bit more. I always get a cut and partial highlights and typically spent about $210, including tip. He would always throw in a few highlights underneath so it would look good when I put it up. Here, the decent places are charging about $230-245 for partial and cut. Not including tip. So, I guess not really that much more, but I was surprised that it was more in general. The higher end salons are around $300.
that sounds like a LOT. wow. i'm sure it's not as high as NY but still. i pay 175 (including tip) for semi-perm color + cut. i don't go to a shi shi place like di pietro todd but a moderate place. if i went there, it would probably be 250+.
is your hair as long as that pic you posted?
Years ago I had lovely curls, then something happened in my 30's that made my hair go bonkers & have 3 different textures growing out of it. WTF?
I wash with Aquage Sea Extend Strengthening Shampoo (it's sulfate free)
Condition with Joico K-Pak Moisture Intense Hydrator
The after towel drying & combing with a wide tooth comb, I either use a small amount of "It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In Lite" OR I'll use "Biolage Exquisite Oil" (like a pea size for my length & thickness)
Then I put in "Sebastian Thickefy Foam"
Then spray "Aquage Beyond Shine" heat protectant spray before flat ironing
Then after I'm finished flat iroing, I spray a shot of "Sebastian Trilliant" on it for loads of shine that doesn't weigh it down.
I used to use Biosilk's Silk Therapy Oil before I started flipping back & forth between the It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In Lite & the Biolage Exquisite Oil, but it was so heavy on my hair, that literally, more than half a pea size would weigh it down.
Thank you all for the suggestions! I'm going to see what combo I can come up with that works best for me. Right now my hair is about halfway down my back. It's pretty long. I usually don't go any shorter than shoulder length though if I get the urge for a dramatic change and whack it all off. I like the length though, especially when I flat iron. I just don't like the frizzies!! I know it's this damn humidity in the South but I'm willing to try several products if I have to. You all have given some really great recommendations though so now I'm off to buy some products!
Let us know what you end up buying & what works / doesn't work!
