Melissa asks:
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 flyaway’s 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 you’re 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.





Jessica asks:
I am a natural blonde with really fine hair that almost makes me look like I am bald, so I decided to go black to make my hair look fuller and make it look like it has more volume. This was about 3 years ago and ever since whenever my roots have been showing I have been dying it back black. The problem is lately I have wanted my hair to go back blonde, with blonde being a big fashion thing lately. So I have started to dye it a lighter colour to try and get my hair to a lighter shade, this lighter shade is red, as I have been doing this my roots have gone a bright red colour and the rest of my hair still black. Also when I have been washing my hair it’s been falling out! Not in clumps but in lots of strands at a time, making my hair looking less and less full.

This is a tricky one! Matrix has a product called COLORERASE. It is especially formulated to remove artificial colour from the hair, in a controlled manner. However the product contains a selection of persulfates (bleach family) therefore it is very important to do a strand test to check that the hair is strong enough to sustain the lightening treatment. This type of colour correction must be carried out in the salon, as the process is very delicate. The product needs to be applied avoiding the roots and the development time is crucial, as the removal of colour pigment can vary. You may need to repeat the process a couple of times to achieve the degree of lightness desired. Treat the hair with Matrix 5 + PROTOPAK treatment. It helps reinforce and restore the integrity of the hair fibres. At that stage your stylist should reassess the hair and decide what product to use next. You should be prepared for the fact that you might not achieve your desired colour in one day, instead it may be a process of lightening the hair slowly let’s say over a 3 month period in order not to compromise the quality of the hair.







Daphne asks:
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?

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 hair’s current condition.
