My hair is just below my shoulders and straight with a few layers at the bottom, it appears to be in very good condition and is extremely shiny (it is coloured as I am going grey). In the last six
months I have had real problems with what looks like a top layer of frizz on top of my head. My hairdresser said its new hair but as it is growing it just seems to frizz, I say frizz but Iím not sure if itís
flyaway, it doesnít appear to have a different texture to the rest of my hair so I donít think it is because of the grey. I have spent a fortune on so many products and the only thing that calms this down and makes it look better is Trevor Sorbieís products for straight hair however there is something in it that really irritates my scalp and I end up with terrible dandruff and itchy scalp when I use it. I have tried so many other products for frizzy hair or for straight hair (including John Frieda Frizz ease) but it seems that everything irritates my scalp. The only thing that stops my scalp being like this is Daniel Fieldís scalp therapy shampoo, it gives me a lovely clean and dry free scalp but makes my hair look worse, which means I am constantly adding serum or other similar products to the top of my hair to stop this frizz (which seem to sink in after an hour and the frizz comes back) I am getting so fed up about this and can not afford to keep buying so many expensive products especially when they donít do what they say they will do and as I say if it wasnít for the scalp problem I would happily stick with Trevor Sorbie products for better looking hair. Please advise me what I can do as I have never had a problem with my hair before this and it is really getting me down. By the
way I do use straighteners but only used to use them on the very ends of my hair for a few seconds but now I have to use them right from the scalp which is worrying me that I may end up actually damaging the shorter frizzy hair at the top.

It sounds like you need a complete overhaul of your hair-care routine! Begin by using a good, nourishing hair care regime, such as Kerastase Nutritive Bain Oleo-relax (£52.25 for the set). These products have been designed specifically for dry, sensitised hair and though relatively expensive, are fairly concentrated so you only need to use small amounts; dispensing about the size of a walnut in the palm of your hand each time. Next, when hair is still damp, apply a serum to control any particularly frizzy hair. I would recommend Fudge Unleaded De Frizz (£8.95) this controls hair whilst smoothing and polishing. If you are worried about damaging your hair whilst styling then why not try a protective cream such as LíOreal Hot Style Iron Finish (£12.30) on the sections you straighten. Finally, to fix your style and add further control use some Fudge Skyscraper hairspray (£8.50), which will fix your finished style and banish your frizz from returning!

My natural hair colour is black. I have dyed it brown, and then black again in the last 2 years. And now I want to go try a different shade of brown, but my hairdresser said she wonít dye my hair as she canít put colour on colour. Is their no other way to have my hair coloured?

I would suggest asking your stylist if they could place fine woven foil highlights 1 or 2 shades lighter than your base tone. Once this has been done you could have a semi permanent colour applied over your whole head which would give the effect of going slightly lighter. This would be multi tonal but it would look very natural and give you the result you are looking for.

I have coloured my hair for the last 5 years as I have the same grey white streak my mum has on my side only- eat you heart out Cruella - however here lie the problem. My hair is fine, flyaway untidy mess looks great when I leave the salon until I wash it and am straight back to untidy, semi wavy dry hair. My problem is I am going into hospital and will have limited use of my arms for 12 weeks. I would like to have a soft perm as I canít brush or style during that time. Please can anyone suggest the best options to me?

I would suggest having your hair in a shorter style. If you have a soft perm or wave introduced into your hair then it WILL need some styling to make your hair look its best. ...More >
If you have a shorter style for a while, while you are recovering, you could also have some colour introduced to give you texture and a style that always looks great with minimal styling requirements.
The colour will thicken your hair, not only in appearance but in volume also. The introduction of some colour can be placed so that it works with your hairstyle, not only when you have visited the salon. Explain to your stylist the issues you have with your hair and she should be able to give you a style that will work with your natural wave and fine texture to ensure your hair looks its best while you are unable to maintain it as you usually would.

at some shorter hairstyles with colour to give you some idea of looks you could choose.
