Nathalie asks:
I have long medium brown hair and I would love to dye it blonde but my friend says that you cannot have long hair if you colour it because hair stops growing and breaks off and this is why Paris Hilton and Jessica Simpson wear extensions. Is she right? Or would I be able to keep it in good condition.

People wear extensions for a number of reasons such as they cannot wait for it to grow naturally or it just will not physically grow as long as they want. If you already have naturally long hair then that is great! Colouring long hair is fine as long its applied correctly, maintained and conditioned regularly. Rather than going for a block blonde colour which will require serious upkeep, I would suggest you have highlights and build the colour from here. Going blonde is less damaging than it used to be as most professional hair colours have conditioning agents and protection in the ingredients. As long as you use deep conditioning treatment on a regular basis, visit the salon for regular colour and treatments, there should be no reason why your hair would snap and break off.

Dawne says, "If you've had the extensions applied for volume then this really is what they should be achieving. Maybe go back to the salon and speak to the stylist about applying some additional extensions? Alternatively, you can use root boosting styling products that are compatible with extensions, then use a rounded barrel brush, take sections of your hair and blowdry against the root growth to encourage volume and height in that area."

Joanne asks:
I have shoulder length fine hair which has a natural curly kink; over the past couple of years I have been using GHD strengtheners to get the sleek effect. Now that fashions are changing I have had a perm which I thought would give me big glossy curls. Unfortunately this has not been the case; my hair is not any curlier than it was before naturally. I am in my mid 30's so I also home dye my hair to cover greys. My hair is now a fuzzy mess, dry and dull. I've tried most of the curl shampoos, conditioners and styling products you can buy from the high street. Can you tell me the best treatments to use to get my hair back in better condition and also the best styling products to reduce the frizz.

Curly shampoos and treatments would make your hair crispier! Try J.F Lazartigue moisturising shampoo and conditioner and a little trade secret, after you shampoo and condition your hair mix 2tbs of Epson salt with half a glass of water leave it in the hair for about 5 minutes and rinse well. This contains magnesium salts that would revive your curl. I would also advise you to not use many chemical treatments at the same time as its to much for your hair to take it.
