My hair is exceptionally thick, falls in loose spirals, and comes down to the middle of my shoulder blades. I have been growing my hair out for the past couple of years, and I never had a problem with frizz until my hair approached shoulder length.
I immediately started using moisturizing shampoos and conditioners, letting my hair air dry, and shampooing every other day instead of daily, but it has only been getting worse. I tried a ridiculous number of hair products to see if I could style away the frizz, but the only thing that worked 100% was to straighten my hair.
I have since found some products I am happy with, but they are not able to control the frizz completely. I use Frizz-Ease shampoo and conditioner for curly hair, a deep conditioner as needed, and Frizz-Ease volume reducer for control. I do not care for serums, but I use them if I am going to be in the sun for a while.
I really do not want to straighten my hair or cut it shorter, so what can I do?

I would suggest using a clarifying shampoo and removing all product build up and starting form scratch. Check that the anti frizz products you are using do not contain silicone as this can cause the product build up. The use good moisturizing shampoos and conditioners that contain humectants such as coconut oil. And use a good moisturizing styling lotion to keep the curls defined

I do not use colourants of any kind on my hair. I had a hairdresser at the house to put my long but fine hair up for a wedding. I had it washed and conditioned ready using my usual products. Just before leaving for the wedding I noticed an unusual smell from my hair much like perming solution or peroxide and there was a tinge of gold almost green in my hair. The next day I washed my hair and the smell was worse and my hair very dry and damaged. The hairdresser said she had not used anything but hairspray on my hair. I was wondering what could have caused my hair to be like this. My daughter who used to be a hairdresser has cut my hair for me says that something has been put on my hair to damage it so much. Can you please help Thank you

Dear Ann, yes this seems very unusual as it sounds like a chemical reaction has occurred causing the hair to become dry ! I can only guess that she may have used a styling product or hair spray that reacted with your products. The reaction will have caused the hair to lift slightly .Do you swim a lot? Build up of chlorine on your hair could react. Do you use a coloured shampoo or henna products as may also react. I suggest deep conditioning and regular cutting to remove the damaged hair.

I have recently moved to an area where the house has a water softener. My hair has gone dull, lifeless, dry, lacking shine and I never feel like I have rinsed it enough times so am probably damaging the hair shaft even more. Please can you tell me what I can do to combat this? Does soft water ruin hair? Any suggestions would be really helpful.

I would recommend you invest in a moisturising shampoo and conditioner. The Kérastase Nutritive Bain Satin 1 Shampoo and Lait Vital Conditioner will add back some of the moisture your water softener has washed out. Soft water doesn’t necessarily damage your hair, but you may notice it can still feel a bit greasy on fine hair. I would also recommend rinsing your hair in cool water to close the hair shaft.
