Belinda asks:
I am 34 and have had a very stressful year my hair has started to show noticeable white particularly on the left side. I rushed in and had some highlights but you could still see the white ones so I asked for a permanent dye to match my hair but due to crossed lines the hairdresser put some more highlights in I left it for a while but the colour difference between the hair that is not coloured and the highlights bothered me too much so this time I did get it dyed to match my own colour just after this I put some coconut oil on which I have been doing for a couple of years now then I used a blend of oils with neem in it and the first time I washed my hair most of the colour came out so I had to get a home kit and do it myself so how can I keep the colour in I am using Redkens Colour range at the moment I also have very long hair it is just on 40 inches and (doní t laugh) I want TO grow it TO floor length it hasnít got far TO go AS I am ONLY 5 ft 2 " so how can I keep it protected so it can keep on growing without breakage so I can be a mini Crystal Gayle.

If you look after your hair it will grow to around 46 inches but you need to keep it trimmed and conditioned or it will split and break. Very long hair is not very fashionable though and I would suggest a shorter more modern style. I do not advise using coconut oil as it will sit on the outside of the hair as it is too vicious to penetrate. To counteract breakage, intensive treatment sprays and alternating repair shampoo and colour shampoo will help. Also, invest in Mason and Pearson brush for your correct hair type ie fine, medium or thick hair and a wide tooth carbon comb which will help minimise damage to the hair as it grows.

Liza asks:
I recently got my hair cut, the longest part being just below the shoulders, and layers throughout, with a choppy fringe. My hair is very fine and soft, and feather-like, but this is not the look I am going for. I want a choppy, layered look, and I was wondering, what products should I use to get this effect? I am 15, and wash my hair in the evening, towel-dry, and go to bed. How can I achieve this look in the morning, when my hair is dry before school? Also, If I leave my hair out for a while, it gets very frizzy. Should I use an anti frizz serum of some sort?

I recommend for a choppy slept on look that you use a product called Label M Sea Salt Texture Spray, wash your hair as normal and spray it on evenly scrunch dry and leave this will give you a nice choppy look. If you find it quite fluffy in the morning then spray a spray shine on and ruffle the hair and add more sea salt spray in the morning to help achieve this look

You will benefit from a good blow-dry - which will give your hair the best foundation for your style rather than roughly drying it and then scraping some straighteners over your hair! Section your hair then blow dry using a Paddle Brush to get volume. Go over your hair lightly with your straightener starting half way down the hair shaft so you do not lose the volume you created. It is always best to start from a straight style even of you want curls or any movement in your hair. This will maximize shine in your hair by flattening your cuticles to get a smooth finish - you can then use your straighteners or tongs to create different styles. The next step is to create some waves in your hair so section your hair to the crown then start to use your Styling Irons to make waves. You need to take small sections of your hair, grip it on the ceramic plate near the root. GENTLY turn the irons 180 degrees and run it down the hair shaft taking care not to snag any strands. Ensure you keep hold of the ends of your hair (which will be pointing downwards) and move with the flat irons. This creates amazing waves and will last due to the heat of the straighteners. Separate and define the curls by spritzing with a Leave In Conditioner all over your waves. You will then need some pins and some Kirby grips, if you are not very confident with putting your hair up, a great trick is to pull your hair into a rough pony at the crown Ė do not pull your hair all the way through as you will need to create a loop. Take sections of this loop and pin the curls roughly around the crown leaving shorter sections loose, to give you that sexy bed head look. Leave your hair looser - or pull some strands around the front of your face to give you a sexy come to bed eyes Alternatively if you are more proficient at hair up, you can pin your curls to your crown without a ponytail for that big hair, period look, just ensure that as you slide the pins into your air you push them back against the hair to give extra anchorage and staying power.
