Isobel asks:
I have Remington Wet 2 Dry straighteners - they have impregnated and ionic plates - is this as good as the FHI ones and if not whatís better about the FHI ones? Canít afford to buy another set of straighteners that claim to be fab but donít do much better than my GHDs! Interested to read that using serum boils the keratin out of the hair? I wash 3 times a week, use keratin shampoo and conditioner with regular deep keratin conditioner too. Once every 6 weeks I use Brazilian keratin ístraighteningí (non chemical) product. I thought this would make my hair less porous and thus less dry/individual hairs look bent and donít lie together. I straighten full head of hair 2 - 3 times a week and quickly once over in between just on any hairs that are out of shape from sleep. I just do NOT know what to do with my hair - I have an asymmetrical (from back to front) bob and getting finer all the time hair (Iím 43). I have spent FORTUNES on conditioners and salon shampoos etc and nothing will work. My hair when wet from washing is soft, sleek, smooth, all keeping together but as it dries the ends wisp up and look bent and have no movement. I just do not know what else to do. I either have salon Wella colours or at home colours and donít mess my hair up with colour. What do you suggest? I fear if I go into a salon and say oh my ends are dry Iíll just get given more conditioners and be told íthis is the one that will solve your woesí - but Iíve been told that so many times before...

I think all your problems come from heat damage! You NEED a hair straightener that has a temp control on it. If you notice steam coming off your hair when you straighten it that is moisture being taken out of your hair. What I ALWAYS do when using any iron is: Adjust the temp so that no steam or very little come off the hair and slowly glide the iron down the section. This ensures you keep as much of the moisture content as possible and you hair WILL stay in better condition. Keep using all the conditioning products you are using at the moment and try an iron with a variable temp setting. You will notice a massive difference.

Aisha asks:
Iím 13 years old, I suffer from black dead coarse tufts in the top of my head in a little spot as well as my hair is dark bay and fine itís silky and curled in the ends not frizzy or oily or dry. I asked my Mom about it she said teenagerís hair colour change. I disagreed because it wonít change in one spot and it will not become coarse and dead. By the way I have been using a straightener for 2 months itís my first hair straightener so Iím not sure about the quality of the straightener. So why do I have this change? and is the straightener the cause of the dead black hair? If it is, do I need to change my straightener? If itís not how can I let my hair survive? And what are the best brands of straighteners?

Your iron may be responsible for you hair becoming very dry. I would recommend a good quality platform iron. Set the temperature to 180 degrees and slide the iron slowly down each section. This will allow the technology to have an effect on your hair and keep it in good condition. DO NOT USE HEAT PROTECTION SPRAY WITH FLAT IRONS. This will solve your problem

Alice asks:
My hair felt very damaged and dry. So I have for the last six months used shampoos and conditioners for dry and damaged hair (I have been colouring it for a few years) but now my ends (and 10 cm up) are almost fine but the roots gets so greasy so fast. HAVE to wash it every day.

Should I change my shampoo?

The two important things to remember are to use a shampoo specifically for oily hair/scalp and use a repair or hydrate conditioner on the ends.

Also make sure when you wash your hair it is with luke warm water not hot, as this makes the scalp produce oil quicker.
