Stacey asks:
I used to home dye my hair a very light blonde so that it was almost white, I then coloured it a medium blonde just to ítone it downí. I did this for several years and once I had my baby, I found the upkeep of retouching my roots every fortnight too high maintenance on top of running around after a small child.

So I then coloured my hair a dark brown and that was that. 8 months after colouring hair dark, itís all washed out and it had changed into a copper colour along with about 2 inches of my natural dark hair which had came through at the roots. My hair was in fairly good condition and I made the decision that I fancied going baylage cos I missed being blonde but wanted a more natural look and less maintenance.

Chose a top salon which is popular and I described how I wanted it. She put a black hair dye on the roots of my hair, left it for a while then put blonde on the rest of my hair with foils. I was slightly confused at this as I thought baylage was íhand paintedí and didnít use foils. Kept quiet cos I thought well she knows what sheís doing. Once washed off, it basically looked the same as it did before except my roots were darker and the copper bits were blonder. I paid the £70 and left. They uploaded pics of my hair onto social media calling it a íshadowed rootí so Iím confused why they did this and not what I asked for? They do do baylage in their salon as Iíve seen photos of other girls getting their hair coloured the way I want it. I feel a bit disappointed that Iíve paid £70 for it to look the same, nobody has noticed it and I feel I look more dark haired than I do blonde

Hi Stacey

If I was you I would go back with a screen shot of the posted the salon used for social media saying that you are disappointed and confused and you would like it re done free of charge with the balayage technique. I would suggest that as they didnít ask your permission to use the image and its wasnít what you wanted done it seems the fair thing to do. Iím sure the salon will look after you, we all want happy clients you are our biggest adverts after all. ...More >

Good luck,

Kessie asks:
So I want to grow out my bangs, I have straight asian thin hair and a kinda round chubby face I donít know what style would look best please help

Hi Kessie

I would suggest the easiest and best way to grow them out, is have the hair around your face layered and shaped, usually from the cheek bones is the best place to start. The bangs may not be long enough yet to shape into the layers but within 4-6 weeks they will be and then you can have it re shaped and go from there. Using a protein shampoo is a great way of making your fine hair have a bit more body and volume. Happy growing out!

Sarah asks:
I am getting very frustrated with my hair and the fact it just doesnít get any longer. It is currently just above my shoulders. I have not had my haircut for five and a half years in an attempt to grow it and yet every time I see friends Iím greeted with "oh youíve had your haircut" and indeed if I look at photos from a couple of years ago my hair definitely is shorter now. Every time I wash my hair I do lose rather a lot of hair, but that has always happened since I was young. I wash my hair every two days, more if I have been at the gym. I use a hair treatment every time I wash, normal conditioner just causes my hair to be dry and frizzy. I always wear my hair down except for at the gym, I use oil on it when I have washed it on towel dried hair and I must admit I do use hair straighteners most days. I also have highlights which I only do about every six months. I have tried a multitude of things to try and make it grow, various shampoos and conditioners, I use coconut oil on it once a week which I leave on for several hours before washing out. I sleep on a silk pillow case. I use a good hair brush and donít brush my hair too often. I have tried taking hair and nail vitamin supplements, nothing seems to work. I know my hair does grow because my highlights get roots but the ends just seem to break off and I just donít know what to do. The problem seems worse on one side of my face than the other, the hair on the right side directly next to my face seems to grow a bit but then it doesnít match the other side of my face so I have to trim it to match. I am a 36 year old woman in need of advice. Thank you.

Hi Sarah

This is a baffling one, We do always advise if you want to grow your hair get at least the ends taken off 3 /4 times per year, this ensures that the hair is keep in the best condition and doesnít thin out to much at the bottom due to the normal chemical, mechanical and environmental damage. As a rough idea hair is about 1 year old from root to the top of your ears so then you can work out how old your hair is. Every individual person and their hair have different life spans and so there is a possibility that your is 5 years and thatís as much as your hair will grow. You seem to have covered most of my suggestions which are of course use the best products possible, donít tie hair up or back to tightly, Do regular hair treatments, donít over process with chemicals and consider taking supplements. Can I suggest you get a trim, review your diet again, see below for details and try this particular supplement for at least 3 months, it is proven to help strengthen and help hair grow and has the relevant proteins. If after 3 months itís not improved I would suggest consulting a trichologist as they maybe able to help. ...More >

Good luck

The benefits of hair supplements?
Itís a fact that 1 in 3 women have hair loss and thinning hair concerns - Diffuse hair loss caused by severe stress, medication or poor diet being one of the most common.
Years ago we would have been advised to eat a cube of jelly to improve our hair and nails, not actually a myth as Jelly made with gelatin, a tasteless protein is capable of providing some of the essential amino acids that human hair is made up of, as well as the ability to renew cells.

As hair is 91% protein and constructed of 16 amino acids combined with the fact that hair and nails are the last body parts to receive vital nutrients most of us that want to improve the quality and health of our hair need additional support.
They work by being absorbed into your digestive system providing the essential amino acids the hair requires.
You would need to take a supplement for at least 3 months to really notice and feel a difference, generally 2 per day and they work directly during the íAnagení(growing phase of the hairs natural cycle).
I strongly recommend Hair Jelly protein capsules with their Sulphur rich amino acids, they really do the job and are suitable for vegetarians.

Diet really does make a difference

Your hair and nails are the last parts of your body to receive nutrients, so listed below are the foods that your will you for eating. They provide all the essential ingredients and amino acids that feed and condition your hair and scalp from the inside out!
