Jane asks:
I am after some hair care advice for my teenager. He has curly hair which he wears just above his shoulders and ties back on occasion. Its very similar to Jon Snowís style from Game of Thrones (sorry for use of this for description).. Over the last year the hair at the sides of his crown, above his ears, has broken off on both sides and hasnít really grown back (thereís about an inch of fluffy hair)which looks odd when tied back as it sticks out. Its really knocking his confidence and he is starting to worry (heís 19) that he is going to lose his hair since its not growing as fast as the rest. He is driving me crazy, so I would be so grateful if you could give this tormented mum (who also has curly hair) some advice....thank you in advance..

Hey Jane

This sounds like itís hair thatís on the hairline. This can sometimes be weaker . It could be that he is tying it back to tight that may cause some breakage However i would say that if the hair is still at the root (which is what it sounds like) it shows he is not losing his hair itís where it is fine around those areas and a lot of guys get this . Unfortunately there is no miracle cure but when he ties it up maybe add some wax to sleek those areas back and ensure its tied back loosely. This should help with it growing back and in turn give him a less tormented mum.

Krista asks:
Hi, Iím a 16 year old girl who wants to cut her hair short.

I have black, fine thin hair. If I get a short haircut, I want to make it as big and fluffy as possible.. I think the best way would be to damage it as much as possible by dying it. I would like to hear your thoughts on that! And another question. If I get short hair, can I just layer my hair from the crown?

Firstly, yes, damaging your hair will create a different texture however i feel this is not the way to go to achieve the best results . By all means use some color (and remember to skin test yourself first, using a small amount of color behind the ear and leave for 48 hours) however not to the point of being damaged . You can achieve great texture from products alone. I would recommend Redken Wax Blast (No 10) when your hair is dry blast with the hairdryer and spray the wax in at the same time. You could also use Redkenís Powder Grip. This will mattify the hair and add volume just shake a small amount onto the roots when dry and style as normal. Now as for the layering from the crown it depends on what shape you are going for . The best thing would be to see a stylist and ask for direction on this as itís hard to say without seeing what look you are aiming fo, r and also what would suit your hair and face shape.

Have fun with the new look Krista hair is meant to be played with.

Claire asks:
Hi, I have two little girls, 16 months and 3 years old. The are mixed race. White and a quarter Caribbean. Please can you advise me on the best hair care routine and hair care Products for their hair. Many thanks

Mixed race can be many textures and curl types, ringlets, tight afro, fine coarse, loose bouncy?? Once you have established your childrenís hair type you can approach it accordingly. ...More >

Very curly can matt and tangle easily and the instinct is to keep brushing probably more often than necessary,

At 3yrs it is a good idea to include you little one when you are brushing her hair, the best brush for this is the Tangle teezer, always start from the ends moving up the shaft of hair.. Maybe having a time once a week to teach her how to brush out her hair doing your own can demonstrate this.

If you use a pareben sulphate free shampoo and conditioner you get much better conditioned hair.

Keeping hair plaited for sleeping helps and or slippy pillow helps (satin really soft cotton )

A detangler is essential and you can mix conditioner with water in a spray to duplicate the same affect 1part conditioner 2 parts water.

A childs hair changes throughout childhood so adult products are a no no products such as Little sprout, Miniu, etc are formulated for children and are ideal.

As for routine keep it to every morning and evening for brushing , this will create a habit for your girls. Washing should be no more than twice a week , you can use the detangler daily.

Use soft bands not skinny ones as the hair can get caught in these and be very painful to remove.

Find a good hair salon, ask for referrals etc.,

Hope this helps Marion .
