Sharon asks:
I am a black British girl living in Melbourne Australia. I have had dreadlocks most of my adult life but shaved them off over a year ago and have regrown my hair for the past year with help from braids. I am now stopping the braiding and will be giving my hair treatments up until Christmas to get it into good condition as I want to keep a natural 2-3 inch funky dreaded afro (kind of like Gary Dourdan in CSI. I may have to ask a European hairdresser to colour it as there are very few Afro Caribbean hairdressers here. I want to colour it brown going into a goldy blonde on the ends. How would they do this? Would they just use bleach? Can I use a semi permanent instead to do less damage to my hair? And what products do you recommend I/they use? My hair is fine but there is lots of it so it is pretty dense and thick.

I can recommend the product Dark & Lovely by Softsheen and Carson for taking your hair colour up to the shade you want. Just click on the link to view the different shades you can purchase.

Gem asks:
I want to have my hair mainly bleached blonde but with obvious black stripes (similar to Christina Aguileras old style an some others. Everytime I go to the salon they insist on doing it as foil highlights and then most of the time the black runs into the blonde making a purple/grey mess or the stripes are so fine they blend in. Any advice?

We would also use foil to achieve your desired effect. We would not weave the sections of hair though because this gives the effect of highlights, we would take slices so you would have the block colour you wish for. We would also be very careful when removing the colour. We would apply a heavy treatment to the sections of your hair that did not have black on so the colour would not run into the blonde when we were rinsing it. ...More >

It could run when you are shampooing your hair at home and if that is the case there is not a great deal you could do apart from having an intensive colour treatment applied after you have had your colour done to lock your colour in.

I would say that any professional salon would be able to do this for you.

Good Luck

Alison asks:
Why is my hair not growing? I do use straighteners but I do not use them all the time. Please can you help?

Diane ShawAnswered By:

I have news for you. Almost everyones hair grows every day on any part of their body. All at different paces, some fine, some thick etc. It would seem like you are very focused on your hair each day and looking for visible signs of additional length. It takes approximately 6 weeks for your hair to grow between 1cm - 2cm so any visible difference will take at least 6-9 months.

Using straighteners every day without proper protection can also damage the outer hair shaft which might slow down the growing process. There could also be a deficiency in minerals that help stimulate the hair follicles. Most of the chemists have minerals specifically designed for hair and nails. It will usually take about 6 months for you to see any real difference.
