We study the transport properties of a helical Luttinger liquid without Sz symmetry. We focus on the case of long edges of 2D topological insulators and calculate the conductivity in the presence of both interactions and disorder. In the regime where temperature is larger than the frequency of the external field we use a kinetic equation approach to calculate the AC and DC conductivity for weakly interacting fermions. The opposite regime of the AC conductivity is discussed via full bosonization that allows us to treat certain interactions exactly. We find the dependence of the conductivity on temperature, frequency and Fermi energy for different scattering mechanisms and discuss their relevance to transport.
