Jonathan Van Ness: Happy new year queens! New year, new hair! More healthy hair tips videos & products linked in the description. ❤ thank you all so much for being here week after week. ❤
Ro Guerra: I always enjoy your tips! I have really incorporated them into my hair care. I always learn something new with your vids! Love you!!! Ps I’m boring with my hair. It’s long, on the thinner side, slightly wavy and I still have not found someone who I like to cut my hair. I’m 31 and I still haven’t found a good stylist!
midoriguchi: 1. less heat on hair ends 2. don't go too light (i. e. bleach) 3. haircut frequency 4. long term hairstyles (no extensions) 5. do not overwash 6. sleep with your hair up 7. pre-wet hair before the pool (so it doesn't absorb pool water) 8. know your needs 9. no heat stylers Thank you JVN + happy new year!
Jennifer Hernandez: I just love your videos!!! I have to tell you. I watched your video regarding fine hair. You mentioned not using the concentrator on the hair dryer. Game changer!! I just had someone at the gym complement me on how gorgeous my voluminous hair was ! Pretty crazy ! Youve got me hooked now! xoxoxoxo
Stephanie: Thanks for the tips! Sleeping with a silk bonnet is such a game changer imo. My dad's trying to grow out his beard more and I'm just wondering how many of these tips also apply to that. Like is it basically the same or are there some beard specific things?
Ladyalight: Wow you have such a treasure trove of knowledge when it comes to hair. Thanks so much for imparting your wisdom!
roxyqueen2: I get married this weekend and I have been COMMITTING to my hair, including non-frequent washes, air drying, using a microfibre hair towel, sleeping with a silk pillowcase and putting it loosely up at night with a silk scrunchie. And watching and learning from JVN videos of course! WELL, the other morning I woke up and I looked like Cher from Clueless. It was so fabulous and shiny and soft and the best I’ve ever seen it look in the morning!
Valerie Raquel: Can I just take a moment to say your vibes are pure sunshine? Thank you for the hair care tips, goddess ❤
Autumn Lucas: I committed to washing my hair less and sleeping with my hair up (usually in a silk scrunchie) in 2022, and it has changed my hair. I used to have super oily hair that would get frizzy, and now I can go almost an entire a week without washing my hair and it keeps my natural wavy/curly texture better and for longer
Des Austin The Artist: Happy New Year!!!! Thank you for all these great tips too! Love JVN!!!!
Leslie Witherspoon: These are great tips! Especially reducing tension and going easy on your ends. Protect your edges and pretext your ends!
Gabrielle Gagné (she): As a barista, I started to use a snood instead of doing a bun. I feel that my hair don't have this pull back pressure and they feel super soft when I finish my shift
DeAGarzón: My sister got me one of the JVN sets for Christmas, so I got a haircut and started using the products. I am speechless! My hair has never been shinier and softer. I am all in for wearing my hair as it is and JVN's products are making the process a joy ❤️ Feliz año, Jonathan! Keep bringing light, love, and laughter to the world!
Jasmine Jenkins: I don’t even lay my hair in anything upholstered in my home without a bonnet
Libby Audrey: Loved these tips! I’d love to see more videos on how to choose the right shampoo and conditioner and not being afraid to mix and match based on your needs and how to properly use a scalp massager while shampooing.
tabularasa: Interesting to hear about hygral fatigue. I never learned the term for this until now, but I've certainly dealt with the issue. Finally a few years ago I reduced the shampooing of my long hair down to about once a week-- and it is healthier than ever now. I definitely used to have the overactive oil production problem, but now my sebum appears slowly and gently over many days, and actually makes my natural waves look better and more structured. These are very good and honest tips, JVN. Unsurprisingly, the best advice for healthier hair is to stop messing with it so much
Amanda Cornejo: I would love to hear your take on silver hair. Tips and tricks to make the new changes in our hair seem youthful. I love my silver's but sometimes I feel like I'm in a rut since I'm not doing a lot with it anymore.
Antonia Rebelo: Thank you for these wonderful tips - I was guilty with #1 - too much heat on my ends which resulted in taking off about 3 inches in my last salon visit - lesson learned Happy New Year Jonathan, looking forward to more of your content for 2023
Elizabeth K: Hey! Watching these videos and gradually integrating JVN products into a simple routine is really paying off for my hair! I love the Instant Recovery Serum - what was I even doing before this?? Thank you so much. I enjoy all of your content. I'd love more heatless style tutorials.
fruitypebs23: I love how Inclusive you are with your tips. You cover all types of hair from straight to kinky/coily. Thank you ❤️
Bryn Birchler: These videos are so helpful! I'm trying to get more into haircare this year and have recently been cutting back from washing every day to 2-3 times a week thanks to your instruction. I'd love to see more videos about how to use product (which ones to use together, what's best for different hair types, order to put it in your hair, etc.) and more styling tutorials!!
gracielanemakeup: This was so incredibly helpful! I’d love to see a video on different semi permanent hair treatments- like keratin treatments and wether they are damaging to the hair or not
aja brown: I am so glad that you are so into hair and well versed in all textures. I wish more stylist were as well versed as you. You're tips make so much sense. I fell into the lie that black hair doesn't grow. Even though I went to the salon my whole life I just never had decent length retention. Now that I am in charge of my own hair care, it's been better. Still don't have much retention but I feel that my hair is healthier because of people like you who offer advice that I never thought about. Healthy hair is start. I would rather it be healthy than long.
duckiezoomie: Hi Jonathan! I have a question ♀️ for those of us who suffer from trichotillomania- what do you think is the best way to hide bald spots on the crown of the head? ❤
Natalie Rivero: i love seeing your tutorials, especially for styling wavy hair bc i feel like there is a lot of education/styling tips for straight/and or blown out hair already. I love that in your tutorials you still give good advice (: Thank you, I have turned into an advocate for your hair products to my friend group and even gifted some this xmas.
DancingForLife Follower: Loved these suggestions ❤️ learned a lot. I just had to cut off so much damage now I know how to protect my fine hair
Jenn Hoffmann: I’ve been wondering about how to best grow my hair, lately! Thank you!
Aaron: Okay I’m so obsessed with your products and have lots of them and love them so much!! I would LOVE to see a tutorial on how you achieve men’s/short dry look hairstyles using your products. Like quiff looks or short messy. Please!!!
stroncal: Yes thank you!
hol: My hair is definitely thinner/suffering alopecia from having had nanobead extensions for a few years in my teens. Luckily it’s not super bad. Is there any way to reverse this?
Clau: Thank you sooo much for this video, great tips, I already do the cold rinse at the end of my showers!
Victoria-Riza Hyde: Reducing hair tension in 2023! Thank you JVN! I'd love to learn more about hair loss and how to stimulate hair growth.
Ali Tomer: Would love a vid on healthy transition away from chemical processing ❤
Haley Whitten: Jonathan! I have a question about sleeping with hair in a loose top knot. I’ve done it but when I do, I wake up and have sore hair from it being in that up right position. And it makes it hard for me to have any other style for the week except an updo. Any tips? It’s like my hair conforms to the up right position even when I wear it loose. I do have a bonnet however and that works.
Elle Tomie: Hi Jonathan! I have been working very hard on my hair care journey the past while but I still am a fine haired babe who relies on heat styling to make my hair look like... anything? Is there a way to best transition away from heat styling to let my hair get more healthy while still looking *good* for my day to day? I find putting product in my hair when it is wet doesn't result in a nice finish if it air dries, it either looks oily from the product or crunchy-- I still want some shape control! Would love a video on this!
Paula: Jonathan, my hair is so fine (and thinning! I'm 71) a silky scrunchie just falls out when I put my hair up so I use a coated pony tail holder (which also doesn't stay in place, but at least its still somewhere on my head). I hate sleeping with my hair down now. Any suggestions on alternate ways to keep my hair up without sleeping with a bonnet? Thanks in advance - I love your channel!
anonymouspirits: Thank you so much JVN!! I'm asking a question for my mom who is growing her hair out for the first time in 50 years!!! She gets it braided and adds extensions every 6 weeks (or longer). Can you share an alternative protective style for a badass elegant grandmother with a baby fro?
Trace B: Reason #273 I don’t have kids- they might barf or shit in my hair. Working from home has helped my hair so much. I used to flat iron it & put it in a ponytail 5 days a week & wash it every other day. Great tips, I need to try the pool one!
Natalie Uygan: Happy new year queen! And thank you so much for the great tips! ❤
Nivedhitha R: Loved the tips ❤️
Katie McDevitt: I just got the pre wash scalp oil and your hair mask saving up for the shampoo, conditioner and heat protectant now!
orion: omg thank you this is exactly what i needed! <33
Jasmin: Hello Jonathan and Happy New Year Thank you for another great video. Can you please in one of your future videos talk about cow licks on the back of the head, how to style hair so they’re not so visible, how to disguise them second day after washing and if there are any specific cuts to help them make appear less obvious ❤
Maria Cole: Any thoughts or opinions on minoxidil? I’m 33 years old, active duty Army, and I have to wear my hair pulled back almost every day. I’m noticing my hair thinning around my hair line.
michelle schultz: Hi Jonathan! When I sleep with my hair in a very loose top knot my roots get “sore” — is that normal? And how do I prevent/cure it? Maybe a video on all the weird questions you get asked?? Thanks! Appreciate you!!
Louise Houston: Any tips for hair loss would be great! It’s very mild but it’s happening. Thank you … and loved this video
Erin Martinez: Omg I’m obsessed with your videos! I was wondering if there is anyway you could discuss the best highlights for darker hair when wanting to add dimension. ♥️
Halee Van: Thanks for your video!! I would love to hear your advice or see a tutorial on how to refresh 2nd or 3rd day hair. I want to stop having to wash my hair every day but always wake up with a super flat spot in the back that makes my cowlick super obvious help!
A B: Love you AND your vids!!!! What about videos on styling second (or third ;)) day fine, wavy/curly medium-length hair? Ponytails look like miniature ponytails on me yet I get tired of always wearing my hair down. You've encouraged me to have more fun with my hair. Thank you!!!
Rachel A: Can you talk about how to take care of your hair on a beach vacation? If you’re going in the ocean every day, should you wash it every night after?
Maria: Thank you so much I am currently trying to grow my hair back after chemotherapy, using your JNV range & love it, so gentle on my scalp and hair. Conscious of my hairline, any recommendation of your products that may help ? Thanks
danYELL: Wishing you the happiest of years, JVN, hubs, fur babies and of course - plants (especially those pumpkins- stay away, kellyanne bugs). And thanks for continuing to bless our lives with your presence.
Greentea9876: With this video and the fine hair video, tbh thank you so much!!! I never see videos that have actual explanations of why hair does this or that. Thank you so much for the information ❤☺️
Jo Ann Weiss: Brand new subscriber. You give me hope that I can have longer, fuller hair. COVID really did a number on my fine hair. I’ve decided to stop coloring and embrace my silver or white. (Can’t tell.) so that should help. Thanks for your advice & giving me hope.
Jennifer BOO: Thanks JVN ❤ my hair is boring. I go for a haircut once or twice a year. Use semi permanent hair colour and yes close to my hair colour. No highlight no styling with irons or anything - Sometimes I use a blow dryer- it’s long past my shoulders but I want it longer- however - I wash my hair every 4 days - because my hair falls out in a medium size clump after washing- and my hair is a little on the thinner side - used to be thicker - and I now sleep with one of those satin pillowcases to help my hair and skin out. Like your JVN…just cannot afford them all the time though. Ok TMI. Thanks for sharing all the hair love tips! HNY2023!
D: I’m growing out my natural colour (yeah) but now have this weird line of where I coloured my hair and my natural colour. Any tips on how to make the transition less obvious? In a non damaging way would be amazing!
Arpine Petrosyan: Loved those tips! Thank you! Could you please teach me how to use the JVN leave-in conditioner without making my hair greasy? Thanks!
Benny: Happy new year queen thanks for the fab tips!❤
Anne duddy: Loved seeing you and hearing your tips! Your energy and sweet voice brighten my mood ✨️
Jess S: A few months ago I learned that UVB rays trigger hair growth. That's why your hair grows more in the summer! I don't remember what episode it was, but I learned it from the Huberman Lab podcast. I've learned so many amazing random things from this podcast!
Jared Craft: Love any and all hair tips!! Definitely need these ones
hope44: Whenever I wear my hair up to sleep, I panic that I’m getting breakage at the temples, even if I made the bun as loose as I can
Rosy: I would Love love love to see more reddit stuff like "am I the asshole" or "scandalous secrets" segments. I can't get enough of you're reactions (and wise advice actually) I live for it!
Mary Rachel Leach: Can you talk more about hygral fatigue? I’ve never heard of that before and I sleep with my hair wet a few times a week.
Jaime Pawelek: Would love a video that teaches us about the different types of curly hair. You have mentioned them before with letters and numbers but I don't know what they mean. Thanks JVN!!
Leslie Witherspoon: Do you think it's worth it to see a trichologist to learn about how to better care for your hair? I'm older, getting more and more grays and EVERYTHING is changing. I want to maintain the Integrity of my hair and scalp overall, but I don't think I can afford to be experimenting with random products in order to figure out what works.
Julie Fulton: Thank you so much for your videos!! They are very helpful!! I bought a silk pillowcase and am trying to wash my hair, and get it wet, less. I was so ignorant about my hair! Oh, and I bought your products!!
Brienna Meffert Fogle: I’m loving my JVN hair products, especially the pre-wash oil. Quick question on heat protection. Is less more? When I’m restyling day old hair, do I add new heat protectant?
Hets Girl: I would love to see more about other, more affordable products you'd recommend please. I watch the blowout professor, and he recommends redken. It has changed my life! Adding a good quality leave in conditioner, like morrocan oil or pureology, oh my lord! Best hair of my life! Are there any more that are as good that you'd recommend?
gagalover2k10: @Jonathan Van Ness Hey Jonathan, thanks to you I’m getting better at roundbrushing and straightening my hair. Did you use a flat iron to get the look you had at the start of the video? I love how it looks
Bridget Polglase: I'm so excited! I've recently purchased JVN products ummm the scalp oil, air dry cream and shampoo conditioner daily volume....I'm so excited!!! All products smell soooo good and I've only used them once so far and no exaggeration here but I have noticed such a difference in my scalp like not itchy and it's not dry or any dandruff balls. I had previously bought another shampoo conditioners that claimed scalp detox no nasty chemicals vegan friendly etc seriously my scalp was stinging and itchy. I'm so hopeful for my hair's future now ☺️ thank you Jonathan and please don't stop doing what you do and don't go changing a thing!!
Olivia Kubala: Thank you for doing fine hair tips btw! Maybe you could do another video about hair color terminology because when I look at services that hair salons offer, I don't really know what they mean. Like...I don't know what a semi-permanent color is, what a gloss is, etc. A hair color terminology 101 video would be cool. Thanks for being your awesome self!
Kim Martin: I do everything you recommend for hair growth, but what do you recommend for an intensive one off conditioning treatment? I also take hair growth vitamins thanks happy new year
ashton201000: You are awesome always love the energy thank you for the tips I really needed this!!
Britney Daniels: Thank you! Learned a lot!❤
Cheryl Carlson: Gotta add that postviral illness hair loss is real. Especially after covid is almost expected to have more hair loss and change in texture. Give hair complete break on stresses till notice some regrowth which can take 8 mos. Seriously, covid does this. Also pay close attention to your diet, lots of good protein and good hydration. This helps recovery of whole body.
Rita Clower: Should you always style your hair after you blow-dry it? I shower at night and dry my hair but I don't always want to style it then go to bed.
Alexandria Stipe: LOOOOOOVE!! Love all the content! Any styling tips for short hair? Shoulder length and up?
Mahdis Hildebrand: Omg, I needed to hear tip #1! Thank you JVN!
Nic Nic: The question is: is it better to make a keratin treatment or straight your hair with iron almost everyday?
Lezlie R.: My first question…Can anyone out there tell me if there’s a difference between highlighting your hair with bleach and when he mentions bleach and tone? Is one worse than the other? 2nd… I have highlighted my hair with bleach for years and now that I’m in my 50s I have noticed my hair is more fragile so I’m going to extend the length of time between highlights from every 8-10 weeks to 14-16 and the last time I didn’t have bleach put in but told her to put in the lightest color she could put in that’s not bleach (so a golden brown). Is that still more damaging than a semi permanent color like he mentioned in the video? I have wavy fine and now more thinning hair so the bleach has been helpful with some new grays that have started to come in but I want healthy hair so want to do what is the least damaging. Any guidance would be appreciated.
MsCharlyD: Love all your videos and tips!
Karen Marie: I work out everyday and my hair gets suuuuuper sweaty- is it okay to just rinse it? Not necessarily washing with shampoo but rinsing thank you JVN!!!
Honeychile74: Oh god! I’m guilty of some of these things. I have shoulder length 3b hair with a full head of highlights that I like to wear straight. I’ve dipped in and out of wearing my hair curly since 2007; but I prefer to wear it straight. I was lucky to receive a Dyson Airwrap for Xmas, so hopefully I won’t be so reliant on my straighteners in 2023.
Aaron Patnode: It would be awesome to see some more tutorials on each hair type and lengths kind of a mixed bag of people perhaps a in the chair with JVN moment! Similar to a consult / hair care hair cut maybe type situation! Love your products! The repair cream is a game changer!
Ellen Ford: Jonathan what about when I’m restyling my naturally curly hair and need to get it wet? I have so much trouble with 2nd and 3rd day hair especially since I workout
Jorie Stroup: That was helpful, thank you!
hayley l: I ordered your shine drops (arriving this week) and I can't wait to try them! They should help with frizz I try to counteract with a blow dryer, thus cutting down on heat styling. Am I a good student or what? (I am a teacher..ha) Love your spirit so much! Have a great year xoxo
Adrian Y. Suzuki: THIS WAS SOOO INFORMATIVE!!
Kaeleigh Ray: I’ve been living all your videos, but I would like to see more curly hair content. I am not adopted but I am the only person with doily/kinky hair in my family and I have always struggled with it because there is only 1 curly hair studio in my town and a year long waitlist! How do I manage both my hair and my PCOS?! Testosterone kills hair, I get it. Other helpful tips?
Claudio Zampa: Hello from Italy Jonathan and Happy new year, thank you for your precious good vibes and the beautiful contents on your channel I do have a question for you: since you didn't mention it among the tips of the video, is using a wooden brush really a game changer in terms of health and beauty of my hair?
Lloid Rocket: Can you teach us simple and fast beginner hairstyles for shoulder-length hair please? All I know how to do is a ponytail
Laura Cassar: I used to only wash my hair twice per week until I cut it from waist length to just below the shoulder. I have tried not washing my hair every other day but I've tried almost every dry shampoo out there and none of them work well enough on my hair that I can go a 3rd day, unless I'm not leaving the house at all on day 3. I would love to only wash my hair twice per week again but I can't figure out how to get there xx
Rexouse: Not a question but I got the pre wash scalp oil and it’s amazing
Jennifer Ludewig: I rarely use heat and yet my hair just doesn't grow. I'm trying the rosemary oil method now hope it works
Runna: Hi Jonathan! I have super thick, curly, coarse hair.. Is it okay to rinse and condition between washes just to detangle my hair and refresh my curls? My hair gets tangled af, but combing my curls just makes my hair frizzy.
Gabriela Torres: Hi beautiful! Some HELP for curly hair please!! Thank you so much, love your videos Xo from Argentina
Luis Pedro: I would love a video about hair extensions. If you could explain the types of extensions and a pro/con review, would be life changing
shawn: I logically understand the cold rinse in the shower to seal in moisture, but won’t that prevent leave in conditioner from getting into the hair after your shower?
Annie Whitmore: Fab tips JVN - thank you from the UK! I'm someone with oily hair but if I don't wash it daily it itches and aggravates seborrheic dermatitis. I find it so difficult to find affordable shampoo, conditioner etc for oily, thin, itchy scalp needing volume. J Just purchased a Dyson multistyler and finding it difficult not to allow machine to take ends onto barrel first - especially as that is what they seem to recommend. Watched your Dyson video and tried to copy how you rolled hair but my hair got tangled and I had a real panic. I feel like a lost cause!!
