My daughter is 15 and has extremely unmanageable frizzy hair on the crown with tight curls underneath. She wants it chemically straightened, Iím worried about the risks. Our local hairdressing salon has been brilliant, they took four samples; the first two ífriedí the hair but the second two, using the mildest solution, appear to be shiny,
and straightened hair. But, Iím still worried. Do you know what the long term effects are on using such strong chemicals? By the way my daughter is white/British with very fine hair (which is strangely waterproof too!) She had fine wavy/curly hair until she hit puberty, then her hair just went crazy. Iím at my wits end and just donít know what to do for the best. Please help. Thanks.

Like all chemical treatments they can carry risks, from such as drying the hair, to the more extreme breakage. It is excellent that your hairdressers have carried out strand tests and if the mildest solution worked this is a positive result. Another alternative to consider is a Keratin treatment which a lot of salons now offer. This entails Keratin being put into the hair and the benefits are excellent shine and far more manageable hair. Also a by-product of this treatment is that it smoothes/straightens the hair but itís important to say itís not a straightening treatment, but it is a kinder way to treat the hair.

I have very healthy hair and I only wash 4 times a week. But it is fine and thick. I am trying to grow out my bangs and am not dealing with that well. My question is what kind of product do I use to keep my hair in a style. I constantly have random pieces of hair all over the place. It is like baby hair and it is driving me crazy. In addition, my hair is naturally dark brown, but as it grows out, it lightens up so I feel like I have two toned hair and it looks like I put colour in it

Waiting for your bangs to grow out can be so irritating. I would recommend trying to split your bangs in half and then sweeping them to either sides of your face to create a middle parting. If you have a longer fringe, why not try making a thin plait out of them, then pin the plait to the side, not only does it look great but it keeps all those random pieces of hair off your face. For flyaway hair I always recommend using my Poker Straight Shampoo and Conditioner which gently cleanses and softens the hair leaving it super-shiny and poker straight meaning no frizz or flyawayís whilst the P2Fifty Complex within the formulation helps to prevent hair from excessive heat damage. Using a serum is never a bad thing as it maintains great condition whilst smoothing, moisturizing with double shine! Try my Poker Straight Shine Serum, which can be used on wet or dry hair before or after styling. It is non greasy, packed full of vitamins and will ensure your sleek and straight hair will stay put! Lastly if you feel like your hair is two toned then I would definitely recommend colouring your hair all over with a lovely rich chocolate brown colour. I would suggest going for a semi permanent colour, perfect if youíre a little nervous as you can always change it. As long as you use a colour protect shampoo and conditioner on your hair once it is coloured it will stay in good condition and best of all your hair will no longer be two-toned.

I am in my fifties and I am loosing my hair at the front. I have a fringe which is very sparse but I have a high forehead. Presently it is just above my shoulders and I am thinking of having a very short Pixie cut but, what should I do with the fringe?
|Answered By: |
Firstly I think that going for a shorter style is a very good idea as this will help the finer hair feel thicker and make styling easier.
I would also suggest booking a consultation with a Trichologist as well to get an expert opinion regarding the reason for your hairís current condition.
