Maria asks:
I have coloured hair with only a few slices of blonde in, and want to chemically straighten my hair with Indola silk straightening system as it is very frizzy and I have to constantly straighten it, would you recommend this as a cure which will also spend less time using heating appliances.

Frizzy hair can be a real nightmare, especially with our typical British weather! As your hair is coloured already I would try to avoid any more chemical treatment if you can, as you can loose shine and body. Instead try products which help to straighten out kinks and frizz from the first stage Lee Stafford Poker Straight Shampoo contains ingredients to help tame kinks, gently cleanse and soften but protect from harsh heat damage. Lee Stafford Poker Straight Conditioner with P2Fifty leaves hair super straight and glossy. Follow with Lee Stafford P2Fifty Professional Straightening iron protection mist which protects your hair from the damage that straighteners can do - meaning that your hair is straighter and sleeker with less heat and effort!





Sinead asks:
I have very thick hair which I leave to dry naturally and then use straighteners, I have a side parting from left to right and it always looks limp and awful. I would love to know how to style my hair in the shape of say Samantha Janus with her side parting but donít know how, can you help with tips please.

When styling your side fringe it is important to draw volume up from the roots. Before blow drying, apply a volumising gel or spray to the hair, blow dry to the side lifting up from with a flat brush, from the root Ė this should form a natural arch. When the hair is 90% dry you can use the flat brush again to curve the ends of your sweeping fringe under, straightening irons can be used to help with this at the very tips. You can also try my Volume Detox Hot Shots Treatment to enhance the body of your hair - this will remove dulling deposits that weigh down the hair, to restore balance and improve body.







Yemisi asks:
I have afro hair which grows well except that I have bruises when I make my hair. I had to cut it two years ago but have started Growing it now. The problem I see now is with the braids I find my frontal hair having white stuff at the roots and my scalp dry. When I had it cut I texturised and washed minimum twice a week and didnít experience any dryness. I donít want to have frontal hair loss. What do I do please?

Dry hair, a dry scalp, flaking scalp and dandruff are the result of one or more elements depleting your bodyís natural oils before they can reach your skin and hair. Getting back your healthy scalp and hair will likely mean making a change in your daily cosmetic regime, your diet and taking better steps to protect yourself from drying influences. In extreme cases, seeking professional help might also be an option. Here are some of the most common causes of dry hair and scalp: ...More >

Harmful chemicals found in cheap and over-used hair products over processing of hair and roots after chemical treatment Harmful cosmetic habits, like twenty minutes under the blow-dryer and curling iron overexposure to harsh weather, especially cold winter air braiding or corn rowing which is too tight and is constantly pulling on the hair root. Allergic to synthetic fibre which is used to cornrow hair a diet lacking in necessary vitamins dehydration not taking in enough fluids like water. An untreated skin condition, such as eczema, psoriasis, or seborrhoea dermatitis changes in your hormones which often change the way your hair and nails behave

I think the best way to begin is to examine the recent changes you have made which resulted in your scalp becoming dry and flaky. It would seem to me that your braids are also too tight which could result in traction alopecia.

Try to relieve any stress points on the hair, take in more liquids, and use a quality shampoo and conditioner and take some vitamins.
