Tania asks:
What is better for your hair a straightener that uses tourmaline technology or nano-titanium? And what is the difference?

Now this is a great question. Given the use of straightening irons in use today there is a lot of confusion over what is best for the hair. Nano Titanium emits negative ions in their most beneficial form styling. It is said to lock in hairs own natural moisture. It also produces far infra red heat penetrating the hair from within for gentle straightening. Tourmaline is a Precious stone, whose colours include blue, green, pink, red, yellow, brown, black, bi coloured, tri coloured and colourless. The technical bit! Tourmaline generates negative ions and far infrared rays know as FIR. The FIR helps to lock in natural moisture in your hair and helps remove static which can cause your hair to FRIZZ. Due to the amount of negative irons this produces your straightening time is reduced and your hair is left feeling softer and shinier.

Michelle asks:
My hair is thick and long, so can occasionally get greasy, but since I have coloured it has been limp and lifeless, with an excess of oil at the roots. Are there any shampoos or treatments available to cleanse my hair whilst maintaining the colour?

Your colour service may have left your body feeling like it needs to replace sebum (oil). What I would do first is

Wash your hair with a mild shampoo (not for greasy hair)?
While shampooing only give your hair a light massage, and try not to wash it every day as this will increase your sebum production.
You need a certain amount of oil on your scalp and if you are removing it all every day with shampooing then your body will try and replace it quicker as it is getting the message that your scalp is dry. Also after shampooing on the final rinse use cool water to cool down your scalp. Also use a light spray leave in conditioner and only apply this to your mid lengths and ends ensuring it does not come into contact with your scalp. Please try the above first as this may well sort out you problem after the chemical colour service you have just had
